I didn’t take a three week break!! YAY!!
Chapter 22: The Girl and the Ghost
“Wha-wha-wha-WHAAAT???!!” Sierra screamed.
“I know that I am dead, but we can surely work around it somehow, can we not? Love always finds a way!” Pierre said in return.
“It’s not that,” she started.
Pierre’s face brightened.
“Really? Oh joy!”
“It’s that we just met, and I barely know you, and-”
Pierre didn’t hear her.
“OH how exciting! I can imagine the perfect wedding gown for you and everything will be perfect!”
“Hm? What my sweet, sweet rose? Oh I just knew from the moment I saw you that you were different! You were the sweetest creature I had ever laid eyes upon!”
“What my dear?”
“I cannot marry you.”
Pierre was defeated.
“But, but, MY SWEET! What brought about this? Did I do something to offend you? Oh please tell me then! TELL ME SIERRA, WHAT I HAVE DONE SO THAT I MAY CORRECT MY HORRENDUS WAYS!”
Pierre grabbed the hem of her dress and buried his face in it.
“HAVE MERCY ON YOUR ERRANT GROOM!!”
“You didn’t do anything, it’s just that… people only marry after they’ve like, know each other for more than two days.”
“Nonsense! Princesses get married left and right!”
“I guess you do have a point there…”
“Exactly my dear!”
“But, I’m no princess.”
“You are to me!”
“How can you say you love me even though I’m not talented, pretty, or funny in any way?! I don’t believe you!”
Pierre was speechless.
“How can you talk about yourself in that manner? Have you no self-pride? Oh my sweet, you are talented, pretty, and funny, but you just cannot look past the things that your mind says about you! Can you please trust me when I say that you are the loveliest lady in this entire galaxy? Why else would I want you to be my bride? I would not settle for anything but the best, anything but you.”
“Why can’t you just leave me alone? I’m **** and stupid and you don’t deserve to be with me! Go find someone else!”
“Now, now, do you really believe that? I do not. You, Sierra, are important. You are the greatest you will ever be just by being yourself. Your worst at being you is always better than your best as someone else.”
Sierra stopped crying.
“Now I have one request.”
“Will you play for me again?”
So she played for him. And when she was done, came up with an idea.
“I’d like you to meet my friends sometime.”
And that was that.
Omg, Pierre seems like one of those Everboys: gets the girl, top of the class, muscular, rules the kingdom, etc.
