4. Life Is No Love Song

"Ow."

Sally screamed, she looked down to see the wavy, brown locks of Leon.  He looked to be no more than 5' 4"  "W-who are you?." 

"Calm your mouth and get your foot of me!" Leon said, Sally looked down to notice her foot was on his leg.  She carefully took it off. Leon looked up at Sally, but there eyes never met.  For a split second, Leon felt a smile grow on his face.  He quickly wiped it off, and came back to reality.  "W- what is your name?"

"Sally, Sally Garner." Sally looked ahead at the endless fields of trees that lined the area.  She saw a single Lilly growing.  She carefully picked it and put it in her pocket.  "What's your name?"

"I'm Leon Mc-" He stopped himself, he was no longer Leon McLone, Leon, didn't have a last name. "Leon Half." It was the first thing that came to his head.  This last name would haunt him forever, but it was best that he chose it, for it reminded him of his past, and a reminder, was just what he needed.

"Half is a funny last name."

"Yeah, it is." and that was the end of that.

Sally and Leon talked for a bit, just about this and that, the funny thing is, the topic of why they were there never came up.  Leon attempted to light a fire, didn't work, Sally scolded him because: 'This place is way to pretty to be lit on fire.'  Finally, they decided to eat some Oreo's for dinner.

Sally began to sing, "You were in college working part time waitin’ tables Left a small town, never looked back I was a flight risk with a fear of fallin’ Wondering why we bother with love if it never lasts.

 

I say Can you believe it?
As we’re lying on the couch?
The moment I can see it.
Yes, yes, I can see it now.

Do you remember, we were sitting there by the water?
You put your arm around me for the first time.
You made a rebel of a careless man’s careful daughter.
You are the best thing that’s ever been mine."

  Leon frowned he looked over at Sally's sad eyes and ripped a chunk of grass out of the ground.  Leon held the tear that was just about to escape his eye.  All he managed to say was, "Sally, it is to bad life is no love song."
