James cares for his country. But he worries about Isobel and that stirred something inside of him which could stir something bigger in the country.


(It is set in the olden days incase that isn't clear in my writing haha, not quite sure what year, but somewhere waaaaay far back like in the 1400s :D)

23. 23.

I sit at the special place the next day at two minutes to ten sharp, after James has left. Elijah shows up at exactly ten. He has always been good with timing. 

"Hey." he says moodily. I was hoping the mood had worn off but obviously not. 

"What's wrong with you?!" I demand as he sits down. 

"Everything is changing!" he exclaims. "You're going to leave and your whole family is too and you're all going to live in the big royal palace, you're going to be queen, you're going to have a little baby. You're not going to remember old Elijah down at the farm-"

"Don't be stupid." I cut in. "I will never forget you. I'll visit all the time."

"You won't want to." he says. "You'll have moved onto bigger things and I'll still be a poor kid from the farm. Anyway, things will change. You'll visit and I'll want to go swimming in the lake or running in the mud but you won't want to do that anymore."

"Are you kidding me?!" I smile. "I will bring this baby and make them do it too! I'm not going to forget this life. I prefer this life. I really want to stay, but my family don't and I'm going to be queen, I have to leave. But I'll visit all the time, we can take the baby out on walks, you can watch it grow up and do everything we do. You'll find a girl and have a baby and they can be friends."

He looks at me doubtfully. "I'm a boy, I don't have these conversations."

We both frown for a moment and burst into laughter. He sighs and gets up, pulling me into the tightest hug ever. I hug him back just as tight and bury my face in his shoulder, just breathing. 

"Love you Iz." he says sadly. 

"Love you too 'Lijah." I mumble.
