No Man's Land

Emily and Brad were meant to be together, but both their parents disapprove, forcing them to break up. Emily can't let Brad go, until she has to when Brad goes off to fight in the was, for the opposite side. Emily is torn. One day she gets a note from Brad saying to meet him at the camp, but only to be let down again, but she refuses to let him go.

Authors Note: This is a slightly true story. The characters are real and the plot is basicly all true besides the setting of the story isn't real, it's a totally made up land, and Brad never went off to war. Anyway! I hope you like it!


3. Love can not be denied

I picked up the large bucket of water and started to walk back to my family's house. I turned around and saw Brad who was walking up to me. He smiled at me and picked up the bucket.

"Thanks, it's a lot heavier with water in it," I said. I linked my arm in with his and we started to walk back to my house.

When we got back to my house, Brad set the bucket next to the small fire that my mother had made for our dinner. I stood up on a brick that was by the door and I wrapped my arms around him. We touched noses and we both giggled. When I first met Brad, his eyes were filled with sadness, now every time he was with me, his eyes seems to glow.

"I better go my Princess," Brad whispered. "My pa needs help with supper," we quickly kissed and Brad went walking across the small town back to his house. I smiled. I got off the brick and walked inside where my pa was at the table with his bow. Mum was standing over by the beds sweeping and as I walked in they both looked at me,

"You were with that boy again?" my mum asked even though she already knew the answer.

"I thought we told you to stay away from that boy. He is no good for you," my pa said. "We don't want you to see him anymore," pa said as he stood up. "We've told you several times already and you refuse to listen to us,"

"That's right right, because I love him, and love can deny nothing," I said. I watched my pa's face grow red. Even in the dim light I could see that he was angry. He clutched his bow and stood up from the supper table.

"That's it! Tomorrow you will stay here, locked up and your mother will be sure to watch you! You are FORBIDDEN to see the boy! I'm going to have a little chat with that boy and his parents when we go hunting," pa said as he stormed out of the house. I looked at my mum, I felt a tear escape my eye. I never cried. I never liked to cry.

"Mum this isn't fair," I said. "I love him, why can't you understand that?" I pleaded with her.

"Because he isn't good for you," my mother said as she set the broom against the wall.

"Everyone keeps saying that! I'm sick of it!" I screamed at her. I ran out of the house. I heard my mum run after me but she would never catch me. I had to see Brad. He could make me feel better.

I ran to his house and could hear arguing. I crept up and peeked through the window. Brad sat on a stool in the middle of his parents and my pa. Brad's little sister Lily was sitting on the bed in the corner playing with a little straw doll I had made her. Brad looked close to tears. He always gave off the 'bad boy' image, but underneath he was a totally softy. I listened for awhile but everything seemed muffled. My pa left a few minutes later and I watched Brad's parents tell him something. Brad stood up and nodded. He looked towards the window and spotted me. I nodded to him and he gave a slight nod back. I left the window and headed for our secret spot.

I sat down on a log and listened for Brad. A few minutes later I heard his footsteps. They seemed slower than usual and I could tell something was wrong. Brad emerged from the trees and entered the small clearing that was our secret spot. Brad looked at me and gave a slight smile and stopped at the edge of the clearing. I stood up and walked over to him.

"What's wrong?" I asked as I looked into his eyes that looked dark with sadness.

"We can't be together," Brad said softly. I looked at him intently to see if he was lying but I could tell that he wasn't.

"I know we can't, and we've known that since we met. That doesn't mean that we can't try," I said.

"No, I mean that we can't be together anymore or anytime," Brad said. "My parents and even your pa came down on me pretty hard because of Us and they...they..." Brad stammered. He started to cry. I wiped the tears away from his eyes.

"Oh baby, whatever they did, we can overcome. We are meant to be together," I said.

"They are sending me away to fight in the King's Army, for the Black kingdom," Brad said.

"But that's the enemy's side,"

"I know, apparently my mum used to get along with the King there, they sent a note to him awhile ago asking if he would take me into his army. He said that he would. I leave tonight," Brad said as he looked at me. "Now do you see why we can't be together. Our parents both deny us and now they are sending me away,"

"Brad, I'm so sorry. I never meant for this to happen," I said. I could feel the tears come flowing out of my eyes now. Brad cupped my face in his large hands.

"Why are you sorry. Do you think you caused this? No. We are meant to be together, but just not now. Promise that you'll wait for me?" Brad asked. I nodded. "Good, cause I'm gonna wait for you. I'll be back as soon as the was is over. And if I have anything to say about it, It'll be over soon," I laughed a bit. "There's that laugh of yours I love so much," Brad said as he gently kissed me. "I love you," he whispered.

"I love you too," I whispered back. Brad looked at the setting sun and sighed.

"It's time to be getting back to the village. I have to go soon," Brad said. He grabbed my hand and we slowly walked back to the village. Right before we came into view of it Brad turned back around and face me and kissed me. "I love you. Your my Princess, and I will never ever ever forget you," Brad whispered right before he walked back into town.
