I woke up with absolutely no distinction of where I was. It seemed weird… I knew I wasn’t in my bed, but I didn’t even know when I fell asleep. It took a moment for me to recollect my thoughts, but I realized where I was and what I was doing there. I smiled and stood. I got ready and checked the time. It was slightly past 1. I smiled.
See? I don’t sleep that long…
I laughed at myself. I know I sleep too long, but that really isn't my fault. I dont know who’s fault it is, it just isnt my fault. I was playing with my hair in the mirror, trying to make it do different hair styles. It wasn’t working too well. After a while, Zara came in, looking for me.
“Hey, Jules, wazzup?” Her words were still slurred.
“Zara, I think you should go to sleep.”
“I can't though.”
“Try. I have to go to Arthur’s house.” I didn’t really have to go…
“You dont have to go.”
“Goodbye.” I pushed past her and walked over to Arthur’s, knocking on his door quickly.
“Hello? Oh, Julie, why don’t you come in.” He was so sweet to someone who was so mean to him.
“H-hi, Arthur.” I stepped into the doorway.
“Is Zara still drunk? She pushed me down the stairs, you know.”
“No, I didnt! I don’t know exactly how drunk she is, but she sounds like it.” He nodded.
“She probably does…” I was nervous. I didn’t know why, this is Arthur I am talking to. I was just really nervous. “So, do you want to go in the sitting room?”
“Sure.” I smiled, hoping he couldn’t tell that I was nervous. “So what is your input on Zara and R - I mean Ivan’s-wedding?”
“I think Zara is a little young to be married.”
“I dunno, I think it is sorta cute, how they love each other so much.”
“Possibly.” He grabbed my hand and I blushed.
“Do you think we could ever get married? Even if it is only a small wedding, I want to get married one day…” I smiled a small smile, leaning my head on his shoulder.
“I’m sure we’ll get married, Julianna. I know we will, then we can have the biggest wedding you want…”
“Thank you… And I know we will too… one day…” I paused a moment. “If I live here, with you, for the rest of my life… will I ever die…? I dont want to leave you alone if I can…”
“I really don’t know, love.” That made me sad…
If I died, I would have to go to either Heaven or Hell, and stay there for eternity, but Arthur can’t die, unless the planet explodes or something…
He pulled my face up, dragging me out of my thoughts.
“You shouldn’t be sad, love.” I didn’t say anything. Just pushed my lips up to meet his. “I love you.” I smiled.
“I love you too.” We sat there for a long time until I spoke up again. “Whats your favorite animal?”
“Why? What is yours?”
“Northern Rocky Mountain Timber Wolf.”
“Thats very specific.”
