A/N: Hey mai peoples! Sorry it's been SOOOOOO long since I've updated! When it came to this story, I had a bad case of writer's block. I'm trying to get some ideas flowing, so if this chapter sucks, feel free to tell me straight out! Any feedback will help me! Thanks! ~Kirsten
We had finally fallen back asleep, and then the gunshots came. Of course... More violence, just what we needed.
"Riya... We have to go... Now..." I whispered to her, shaking her awake.
She got up, and we laced up our boots to run. She grabbed a bag full of necessary survival items, and we sprinted out the back door. We ran into the woods, with no idea where we would end up. We just kept running.
Riya was running out breath, and there was no sign of anyone following us, so we decided to stop.
She immediately fell into my arms. She was exhausted.
"What was all the shooting about, Kye...?" Riya asked me.
"I don't know... My guess is that the community doesn't want serial killers around, so they were out to be rid of us. But, we can get out and live on our own... I'll go anywhere as long as I have you by my side... Come on..." I said.
She nodded, and we left... We were leaving forever...
It had been a month or two since we had left our home. We were surviving well enough. There was a small hidden town nearby where we were staying, so we got the necessities there. They were very welcoming, and they hid us when the occasional soldier came searching for us.
But today was something special. I could just feel it...
Kye was holding my hand as we walked into the town.
"Riya, I'm gonna do some shopping, go wherever you want to, but meet me by the willow in an hour. I love you..." he said, as he kissed my cheek.
I nodded, and went over to my friend Myra's house. I knocked on the door, and she smiled brightly when she saw me.
"Riya! Where's Kye?" she said.
"Oh, he's out doing some shopping. He'll meet me in an hour." I said.
"Oh, got it... So, whatcha wanna do?" she asked.
"I don't know. Wanna do our nails and hair?" I asked.
She nodded and ran to her bedroom. I followed, smiling. I had missed having fun like this ever since... I shoved the memories to the back of my mind. Today was a good day. I didn't need the memories to haunt me...
Myra came back with a huge tote of nail polish.
"Jeez! How many colors do you have?!"
"Oh, about 250... Not many..."
She giggled, and laid on her bed, searching for the perfect color. She finally selected a deep emerald green that matched her eyes
"What do you think about this one?" she asked.
"It matches your eyes! It's perfect!" I squealed.
Then she tossed a cyan blue polish at me.
"Likee?" she asked. I nodded.
The time flew by, and it had been an hour.
"I gotta go! It's been an hour Myra! Bye!" I yelled as I flew out the door.
I ran into the woods until I reached the willow tree. Kye appeared right as I arrived.
"Hello..." he said, smiling.
I smiled and said hello. He kissed my cheek, and suddenly did something unexpected...
I got down on one knee and pulled out the ring I had spent the whole hour searching for. I took her hand, and opened the box.
"Riya... Will you marry me?" I asked, blushing.
Her expression was just as I had imagined it. Her beautiful blue eyes sparkling, and her beautiful smile shining...
"Yes... Yes... Yes, I'll marry you, Kye!"
It was perfect...
I picked her up, and spun her around. I kissed her, and held her tight...
She said yes... She said yes...
A/N Hope you liked the new chapter. I'll be updating again soon! Lots of love! ~K
