I know some peopple don't like stories written as dialogues ... so I apologise in advance, but I love writing dialogues! Also, this is my very first fanfic and I know it's not very good, so please be kind and leave "constructive" reviews.
Lili was there, standing behind the curtain, with sparkles in her eyes and her heart beating a zillion times a minute. She even didn't go back on stage for the curtain call (again!). Only one thought: HE had come back! She could hardly believe it, especially after all they'd been through.The only man she'd ever really loved had come back, now she was sure he loved her.
It felt so good to finally be able to hold him in her arms. Was it a dream? No, he was there for real, she could feel the warmth of their first kiss in months.
The last time she had seen him, he'd simply waved at her. He'd just found out that she was a German spy. So, when she saw him fly away after saving her life, she thought she would never see him again. She had betrayed him, so why would he ever come back? These past three months, she'd tried hard to forget him, not even daring to hope she'd ever see him again. And yet, there still was a fire burning in her, a shy hope that he might come back to her someday.
And now there they were, both more in love than ever. And both free. The war was over, she was not a German spy anymore, and he wasn't an American major anymore. No barrier between them anymore. They were just two lovers.
They held each other's hands and slowly walked to her dressing room. Once in, he kissed her. A very light kiss at first, then very passionate. They both felt like if they were flying high in the sky, with only shining stars around them … But they soon (too soon) got back to reality. Someone had knocked on the dressing room's door.
You may enter.
A woman, dressed in an incredibly glamourous evening dress, and a man entered. Bill noticed that Lili's look had changed, that she was now feeling very uncomfortable.THE WOMAN
What was that all about? Kissing that guy in front of … oh … erm … sorry I didn't know you had a visitor.LILI
Ow .. erm … may I introduce Major William Larrabee. Bill, here is my mother Margaret …MARGARET
How do you do.
What a pleasure to meet you Mrs Smith.LILI
… and here's my father Karl.BILL
How do you do.KARL
How do you do.
They were all there looking at each other, no one daring to say a word. Karl noticed that her daughter wasn't at ease with the situation.KARL
Maggie, darling, I fancy a cup of our good old British tea.MARGARET
Let's go and have one then, while Lili is changing. Will you join us later darling … erm … with your friend of course?LILI
Of course we will join you, won't we?BILL
Sure we will.LILI
Great, so you can get to know each other. We'll be there in a quarter.KARL
Perfect. See you later then.
Oh Darling I'm sorry.BILL
Sorry? About what?LILI
About my Mom being so cold to you.BILL
Oh that … never mind. You don't have to apologise, it's not your fault. And to be honest, I don't really mind as long as you are mine.
Lili smiled the most beautiful smile he'd ever seen. He could see love shining in her deep blue eyes. He slowly pulled her closer and closer to him, and they ended up sharing a passionate kiss.
All of a sudden, Lili pulled away …LILI
As much as I appreciate your delightful kisses Major, I'd better rush because God knows what could go through my Mom's head if we are only one minute late.
BILL - teasing
So you used to be a very naughty girl then.LILI
Who? Me? Never. But you're my very first love. I'm deeply in love with you and I believe my Mom felt it. And as every mother, she still sees me as her little girl, and wants me to stay one, in some way. She's jealous because she wants to keep me with her. Being an only child, especially a girl, isn't easy every day.BILL
Oh I see … then let's hurry! I've survived the war so the last thing I want right now is to be sentenced to the flame.
Lili giggled, and lightly kissed him.LILI
You silly … but I love you no matter what. Be right back.
She ran to the bathroom and changed as quickly as a hurricane.BILL
WOW you look stunning, as always.LILI
Thanks. But please stop kidding me. I'm wearing the first thing I could grab.BILL
Well you grabbed the right thing my love.
He gently kissed her on the forehead.LILI
BILL – Smiling
Yes, anything for you.
They held each other's hand, and slowly walked out of her dressing room.
