Stockholm Syndrome

Rose Faith Davis comes from a family torn apart by the unfortunate events of a late night drive. It's taken years to overcome the loss of the one that believed in her so much. Now, she's graduated high school and is ready to take on the task that is college. She'll be moving from her small American town to the bustling city of Sydney, Australia. There's a lot of bad things happening over the sea, however, this doesn't scare Rose. She's up for any challenge, and will chase her dreams no matter what.
~Don't follow your dreams, chase them~


62. Here's to Us

*A Few More Days Later*

          “I love bonfires so much,” Lauren smiles as her and Alice sit on the same big, collapsible camp chair.

          “They are really nice,” I snuggle into Ashton.

          “I like making and eating s’mores,” Harry smiles. He’s sitting with Anne and my mother.

          “I like making hotdogs,” Alice says. “They taste better over a fire than any other way.”

          “I like that it has brought us all together,” Anne smiles. “I mean; we’ve spent this whole week so far together. But now, we really are together. Talking and enjoying one another’s company.”

          “I am just so happy that we are together in the first place. I’m so glad Rose went to Australia and met Ashton,” my mother smiles.

          “I’m glad she came to Australia as well,” Ashton kisses my temple. “It’s amazing how fate can bring two people together in the weirdest of situations. I mean, I saved Rose’s live, and because of that we are together.”

          “And so in love,” I smile. “Oh, Alice, how are you and Alex?”

          “Oh, we’re together,” Alice smiles, red probably spreading across her cheeks. “He’s still the Alex you reminded me of on your first visit. He seems sweeter now, and spoils me. I want him to be the one. We’ve been talking about colleges together, and he says if we go to different colleges, that we can still keep our relationship going. That’s not for a few more years, though.”

          “Lauren, do you have anyone special in your life?” I ask.

          “Um, no,” Lauren answers. “Not yet. All the guys at school aren’t really my type. Maybe when I go to university there will be better guys, but that’s not for a while.”

          “I’m single too,” Harry speaks up.

          Everyone let’s out a laugh.

          “You’re too young to be thinking about being in a relationship,” I smile.

          We continue talking about nothing really important. Stupid little conversations where everyone can have a word. We make more s’mores at one point, and the fire eventually dies down after that.

          “This was a lot of fun,” I smile as we start cleaning up and getting ready to head into the RV.

          “Is coming to the campground going to be a normal thing every time you guys are in town?” Alice asks.

          “I hope so,” Lauren smiles. “It’s so nice here and just a nice place to get away to.”

          “I think we should,” I smile.

          “It’ll be a tradition then,” Ashton says. “There’s so much to do here, and I think they are trying to expand more and more. I think they are trying to put in tennis courts and baseball diamonds, and things like that.”

          “I heard that from someone,” my mother says. “I think it’s a good idea. There’s no place for a kid to go if they want to play sports.”

          “I noticed that,” Anne says. “All they can do is play a form of a sport in the yard in front of their RV. It’s not as fun unless you have a real field.”

          “Next time I hope they have a football field, and we can all play,” Harry yawns.

          “That would be fun,” I smile.

          We finish cleaning up, and then head into the RV. Harry goes straight to his bunk, followed by Laruen and Alice going to theirs. Anne and my mother head back to the two beds in the back.

          Ashton and I head to the front where it’s been made into a room. The RVs aren’t made to be driven anymore, so they don’t have a place to hook it up to a vehicle or even and area to drive it.

          “This week has been fantastic,” I smile as I start changing into my PJs, consisting of a ripped up shirt of Ashton’s and some shorts.

          “I know. Our families are great together,” Ashton gives me a kiss as he starts shedding clothing until he’s down to his boxers. “This will be a tradition to come here. It has been settled.”

          “Good, I love coming here,” I jump into bed. “Now, come to bed, babe. It’s been a long day. I want to snuggle up to you and fall asleep.”

          He smiles, “That sounds amazing, lovely.” He climbs into bed and pulls me close. “I love you, Rose.”

          “I love you too, Ashton.”

          “Here’s to many more trips, and many more fantastic days with you.”
