6. Am I in love with Francis?
It was time for dinner with Francis's parents. Is this how it feels? "Ella." Jerry knocked. "Yes Jerry?" I fixed my hair. "The guests are here." I signed. "Okay. I'm coming." I opened the door. Jerry bowed and walked me to the dinner room. There he was. Sitting there. With his parents. Francis saw me and bowed and then took a chair out for me. "Thank you." I grinned. "My pleasure." He smiled.
"Princess Ella." His parents bowed. I bowed back. My father had a smile on his face. "Francis dear, is there something you would like to say?" His mother spoke. "Um y-" He cleared his throat and began to speak again, "Yes. Princess Ella, can you follow me?" My heart was beating really fast. I got up and followed him. We sat down on a bench in front of the pond. "Ella. My parents are forcing me too." I stared at the pond. "Is this what you have to tell me?" He nodded. "No." He got on one knee. "Ella. Princess Ell-" I gasped.
"Francis. Are you serious?" He quickly shook his head. "Um. I-I was just tying my shoes." He acted it out. I giggled a little. "Francis. Your shoes don't have laces." He felt stupid. "Right." He got up. My hormones were going everywhere. And I don't know why. Am I in love with Francis? I quickly kissed him. I got off. "I'm so sorry." I said. "No-" I quickly walked away before he finished.
