Paper Dreams


3. O N E


I turn my head to see Jeremy turning the lock on my bedroom window. I release hold of the hair wrapped around my finger and run into his open arms.

He smells very clean, and his clothes are so soft. His hair was combed and freshly cut, and the spots where he got scrapes on his arms and legs were healing and becoming simple scars.

He picks me up and twirls me in the air.

I look into his crystal blue eyes, and forget all about my problems.

"I'm sorry I'm late, my love," he says, picking off a strand of hay on his shirt.

"It's okay," I say, shrugging it off.

Not the first time.

But I'm not able to begin to mutter the words when he presses his lips into mine. He pushes me into the wall and I melt in his warm embrace. He runs his fingers through my hair as I rub my hands up and down his arms.

"There's something that I need to say," I mumble, refusing to pull away from his ever so soft lips.

"And what is that," he replies, placing his hands on my face.

"I have to get married."

He stops, and I try to pull him close to me again. I know he can't resist.


"Father wants a distraction for the kingdom."

"That's ridiculous."

"Not if I marry you."

I tug his sleeve playfully.

"But you know that could never work. You're a princess, and I'm just a stable boy," he states, taking my hands.

"But we love each other, don't we?"

"Oh absolutely."

He scoops me up and lays me down on the bed. He's soon on top of me, kissing my forehead until he makes his way to my lips again.

He smiles, showing me those pearly white teeth.

"I actually - had something I wanted to do as well."

I watch as he fiddles around in his back pocket. He finally pulls out a box. He takes my hands, pulling me off the bed. I sink my feet into to plush carpet as I ponder what he's doing.

Oh, wait.

I know.

He gets down on one knee. Tears threaten to spill down my cheeks as he takes one hand and says,

"Marlee Blevins, you are the most beautiful woman I have ever known. You're charming on the outside and the inside, and I've never met anyone as special as you. I'm more sure of this than anything I ever have been, Mar, will you make me the happiest man alive, and marry me?"


He pulls me onto the floor, and I hug him as tight as I can. He kisses me hard.

"I, Marlee Blevins, will do everything in my power to get us married. Because
