Gen 4:5 Mine

James’ Point of View

“Are we there yet?”

“Emmy I don’t understand you, your parents both go jogging, why do you not have the stamina?”

“Because I always hid in my lair when they tried to take me out.”


“So how is your stamina so high?”

“Running away from crime scenes. Anyway, we’re here.”

Emmy leaned forward to catch her breath while I wiped my palms on my shorts and tried to calm myself down. I slipped my hand into my pocket checking the box was still there.



“Uhh I have a question for you..”


Oh god, well there goes the romance in this..

“Will you marry me?” The surprise on her face nearly killed me, clearly she wasn’t expecting this.. maybe its too soon. Oh my god I’ve ruined my chances with her..

“Yes.” Wait.. What??


“Of course!!”

“You don’t think its too soon?”

“Are you trying to change my mind?”

“No, but.. I didn’t think you would say yes.”

“Is that self deprecation I hear? You know the rules!”

“I’m guessing you didn’t ask my parents?”

“Are you kidding? Your mum helped me pick out the ring, and is pretty much already calling me son!” That was true Jasmyn was being absolutely lovely to me. I doubt she’d treat me the same if she knew everything about me.

“Oh jeez, sorry about that!”

“Don’t be, your mum is nice!”

“Pfft. For now.”

Emmy’s Point of View

“I love your laugh.”

“And I love you.” I heard my phone beep and pulled it out,

“Congratulations on your engagement darling! Dress shopping tomorrow?”

“How on earth does my mum now you just proposed?”

“Erm. Turn around,” I turned and saw mum waving over at us from a bench with dad,

“Oh god. I’m so sorry!”

“It’s fine.”

“Do you think they’ll let us sneak back home?”

“If we run..”


“Mum… This really doesn’t suit me.”

“What are you talking about? It’s perfect!”

“I really don’t feel comfortable wearing something this low cut.. Can I try something I like on?”

“Hmph. Fine.”

“It’s not really a wedding dress is it Emmy?”

“I see your point.. How about this one?” I picked up the dress lying on the couch near mum and Merida,

“Oh my gosh Emmy! It’s perfect!” Merida clapped her hands in delight while mum kept asking me to twirl,

“Well.. The colors are gorgeous and it makes your eyes stand out! So now we try on shoes!! I’m thinking purple like your frills?”

“Okay then, let me get changed back into my clothes, and then you can throw shoes at me.”

Another 3 hours of trying on various clothes, shoes and veils we were finally done. I collapsed on the bed in my room and sighed, My door creeped open and I sat up,

“Knock kno- Holy crap! Your mum really went to town today didn’t she?” James was staring at the bags surrounding me,

“You can say that again. 4 hours of squeezing into various corsets and dresses.”

“Sounds like some form of torture to me.”

“Oh believe me it was, I was considering teleporting out of there.”

“Why didn’t you?”

“Because I would have had hell to pay.”

“Fair enough,” James lay on the bed beside me, after dodging about 50 different bags of various bridal garments.

“Merida and Sebastian have gone out to the park for the day, at least I think that’s what she said.”

“Probably snuck off to a hotel,”

“Well that means we don’t have to.”

“Have to what?”

“Sneak off to hotel James!”

“Oh, gotcha.”
