I have to try and be wise about this situation, the man I choose will not only be my protector but my lover as well. Ugh, this is so pressuring! What if I choose the wrong guy? What if he only wants my body? What if I get so blinded by love, he uses me to get power? Ugh, the worst thing is, I don't even know what the curse will do. Will it kill me? Will it threaten humanity? Wait.... is it even a curse?!!! I mean, for all I know it can be a prophecy!
I snap back to reality, holding my forehead in stress and frustration. I make my way down the long hallway looking for Keona. I see her sitting on a ledge near the garden overlooking the city as it shines with blinding lights.
Freya: K-Keona? I say hesitantly.
She looks back at me with piercing hazel green eyes and a calm gaze.
Keona: Yes, Freya? She says with a slight smile.
I walk up to her with the cool wind hitting my face. I gently sit next to her facing the city.
Freya: I'm-I'm afraid...
Keona: There's nothing to fear, I will guard you with my life. She says boldly as she puts her arm around me, bringing me closer to her.
Freya: And I'm very thankful for that it's just... I'm afraid of what is awaiting to happen. I say putting my head on her shoulder.
Keona: me too, luce mia. But the warrior you choose will stand and protect you for as long as you live. And don't forget, I will be with you every step of the way.
Freya: I-... I know it's just... I'm so scared . I say as the tears run down my face.
Keona: I know you are, I would be too, luce mia. She says hugging me.
Keona: You're going to turn 20 tomorrow .... she says looking away.
Freya: I know... I can't believe it! I say looking up at her with a bright smile and wide eyes.
Keona: Ha, they grow up so fast... she says shaking her head and smirking.
Keona: But you know what that means. she says looking down at me with a serious expression.
Freya: yes, I know, it's nearly time for me to choose. but that's why I came to you today.... so I can get your advice.
Keona: well, I can't really tell which man to choose but.... follow your instincts and gut feeling.
Freya: you mean follow your heart?
keona: I would've said that, but this is not the case. but if that's what you believe in... then don't stop before it too late...
Freya: what? what do you mean?
I pull away,facing her direction. looking right into her eyes. there's a glint of regret... sadness and is that... fear?
keona: nevermind.... its nothing.
keona: i said its nothing! she yelled sharply.
keona: it's late, you should go to sleep, its your big day tomorrow.
freya: i- fine. i said irritated.
although keona's stubborn and very secretive.... I love how close we are.... after all these years who'd of thought we'd become more trusting of each other. I'm so glad I have a sister so smart, strong and understanding...
