'Where could she have gone to in the middle of the night?' I asked myself. I wondered why she would leave. I slowed the horse down as we came to a fork in the road.
"Tch." I clicked my tongue in annoyance. I looked at the roads with the little light I had. I saw horse tracks on the left side. 'That's the direction to Skylar's kingdom.' I told myself. "Hya!" I yelled and flicked the reins.
The horse bolted off in the direction of the horse tracks. 'I'm coming Skylar.' I said to myself.
My eyes went small with fear as they kept getting closer and closer. There was no way to escape. They kept laughing that bone chilling low laugh. Tears stung my eyes. I was afraid. They smirked but their smirks fell as a sound of a horse galloping was heard.
We all turned our heads to the sound. The sound got louder and closer. I got a bit scared and went into a fetal position. "Skylar!" A voice called my name. The voice was familiar.
"Run!" A bandit yelled and ran off. Others soon fallowed the first. I sniffled a bit and tears fell from my eyes that were open with fear.
"Skylar!" The voice called again. This time I looked up and saw Carter. Relief washed over my eyes. I sat up as he slowed down and hopped off his horse. "Skylar." He said with a smile
I smiled a bit and stood up. He walked over to me. "What are you doing out here?" He asked. I looked away and sighed. He waited for me to answer. I looked back to him.
"I wanted to go home." I stated "Why?" He asked "Because I'm homesick ok." I huffed "But you know you can't Skylar." He said "Does it look like I care!?" I snapped.
My eyes widened along with his. I cupped a hand over my mouth. Carter just stared at me with shock written all over his face. I backed away slowly.
He slowly took steps forward. I removed my hand and held it out to stop him if he got to close to me. "Skylar..." He said softly "Stay back." I said and kept backing away.
He kept walking towards me. Soon I was backed into a tree. I gasped as I felt the hard tree bark hit my back. I had no where to go as Carter's chest ran into my out stretched hand.
He kept walking and I tried my best to keep my arm straight and not be able to move but in the end my arm wasn't strong enough.
I looked to my arm that was going back as Carter kept coming towards me. I got so warped into my arm that I didn't notice Carter was already in front of me.
"Skylar..." He said again. I snapped out of the gaze of my arm and turned to Carter who was only a couple inches from my face.
I sucked in a sharp breath as my face slowly went red. He was slowly leaning in and the gap between our faces was growing smaller.
