Nothing's Fair in Love and War


3. Chapter 3: Handsome Stranger

The next morning, I woke up and Sherry was gone. I looked around and noticed a writing on the nearby dirt. It said: Got to take care of something. BRB. ~Sherry

I got up from the rock I slept on, which was not very comfy by the way, and dusted myself off. I yawned and stretched. I was starving. I went outside the cave and stood at the edge of the mountain. Woah. I could see the whole city. I could see the fire from miles away. I turned back to go inside the cave.

That's when I heard footsteps. I hid by the cave entrance and held my breath. Hoping the mysterious creature would just walk on by. But I was wrong. It turned out to be a young looking man. Around 18 going 19 am guessing. He didn't see me, so he walked a little deeper into the cave. I could hear his faint footsteps fading. I let out a sight. Probably hoping it would find an exit and leave for good. I slid down the wall and just put my head on my knees. I closed my eyes and though about these past days. Or day. I couldn't believe it. Just two days ago. I was safe and sound. At home with my parents. Happy as could be. I never took my life for granted. I thought I was the luckiest person alive. We weren't rich. But we sometimes had extra money. My parents would always spend it on me. They loved me so much. And I loved them too. But know they were gone. Slipped away from my fingertips. I somehow fell asleep. Don't ask how. It was still early. But I guess I was bored.

I woke up to Sherry shaking me awake. I quickly opened my eyes ad nearly had a mini heart attack when I was face to face with her. She must've noticed my reaction and apologized, "Sorry, didn't mean to scare you, but I brought some new clothes." She handed me some oversized clothes. "Thanks?" I replied. I was given some privacy to change, (which was really her turning around for me to change) and we just talked about random. That's when I heard the same footsteps as earlier. I got alarmed and whispered to Sherry, "That's the person who came earlier, I don't know what he wants hi it scares me." She gave me a confused expression and then chuckled. "That's nothing to worry about." She said gesturing the guy to come in. "Arabella, this is Colton. Colton this is Arabella." Sherry introduced us. "He's the cousin I was talking about." She added. Well I felt stupid. I looked at him. The intensity in his eyes. Fearless. There was an awkward silence. Sherry cleared her throat. "Uh, my name is Colton." He said holding his hand out. "Um, yeah we've been over this." I sad putting my hand on my arm. He quickly turned his extended hand to embarrassingly scratching the back of his neck.

Sherry and him started talking about people I have never heard of and well yeah. I fell asleep. Again.
