A Brave(And Blind) Leap of Faith
Note: Sorry I haven't uploaded in a while, I've been really busy 'cause I was preparing for an audition for a play. Anyways, where we last left off…
(Alex) He remained motionless as I heard someone come in. "Finally! I've been worried-Oh my gosh! What happened to Kuru?" Amanda demanded to know. "We ran into Diva who aimed a magic lightning thing at me and Kuru…" my voice trailed off. Stupid, loyal, persistent yet sweet Kuru… "Kuru purposely got in the way." I finished. "Well is there anything I can do to help?" she asked. "I don't know! He shivering, so I guess a blanket would be helpful. And make sure my family doesn't come in here." I said. She nodded as she ran off to get the blanket. I took Kuru's hand. "Come on, Kuru. Everything will be all right. You'll be all right. You have to…"
(Amanda) "Here's the blanket!" I said, giving it to Alex. She took the blanket and covered Kuru with it as we heard a car pull up. "Oh no. My family! Make sure they don't come in here. I can't explain why Kuru is like this!" I nodded. "Got it." And ran off again to make sure they didn't come in the garage.
(Alex) It had been a while. Amanda had her hands full keeping my family away from the garage. There had been no change in Kuru, and I of course had been sitting by his side since we arrived. I felt so guilty. This was all my fault…Suddenly Kuru's eyes opened. "Princess?" he asked weakly. "Yes Kuru! I'm right here." I answered, relieved he was alive. He looked at me. "Could you be any closer?" he said, smiling. I laughed, remembering when I had said that when I had fainted from using magic to undo erasing my family's existence. "Yes." I said, hugging him. I honestly didn't care about any rules or what he thought, I was just so relieved he was okay. He pulled away to try to sit up, but I gently pushed his shoulders back down. "No Kuru. You have to rest."
(Kuru) I smiled. As much as I was hurting, I was glad Alex was alright. I didn't even think when I blocked the magic from hitting her. I just knew I had to keep her from getting hurt. "Kuru, why did you do that? Why did you jump in front of me like that? Again?" Alex asked me. I looked up at her. "I am your loyal servant. I would gladly sacrifice my life to save yours." I answered truthfully. She smiled weakly. "Yeah I know but…" she sighed. "Is that really the only reason?" she asked, sitting down next to me on the couch. I thought for a moment, realizing my answer would most likely have a big effect on my future. I thought about lying, saying there was no other reason, but the book of Enok said not to lie. Of course, it probably said something about not dating royalty too…I sighed. I couldn't obey everything at once, as much as I always try. So I decided to answer truthfully, taking a brave(and blind) leap of faith. I took a deep breath as Alex looked at me curiously. "No. I also did it because of this…" My heart was beating so fast I felt like it might explode. But I sat up and kissed her anyways. It felt so right, so magical, so perfect. I realized more then anything I wanted this, us, to be possible. But I knew it couldn't. Could it?
(Alex) "Kuru?" I said softly, pulling away. "Yes?" he said nervously. "What are we going to do?" "About what?" he asked. "About…well this! If the elders found out, I would be in trouble, you would get fired, maybe even banished or killed or something!" I pointed out. "I would never do anything to harm you." Stated Kuru. "Or me you! But that's exactly what's going to happen if we don't do something." I said. "Well there's nothing we can do. However…" he stared. "What?" I asked. "Well if we could get Amanda and Taylor to keep it a secret, how would you, well would you, it would be a great honor if…I'm really not good at this." He said, giving me that goofy smile of his. "Would you like me to accompany you in public?" "Huh?" I asked. "Oh what did you call it…I believe the term you used it "date". I mean it would just be in this world obviously, and it would have to be a secret…" when I didn't reply due to shock, he took that as a no and tried to cover it up. "Never mind. I'm sorry. Just forget-" I kissed him, partly just to shut him up before he changed his mind completely. "Does that answer your question?" I asked him. He nodded, smiling. "Yes Princess, I believe it does."
Author's Note: k so here's that heart-to-heart conversation some of you have been asking for. I've been planning it for a while, actually. Oh, and imagine Taylor Swift's song Fearless playing during their first kiss in this chapter. And yes, I know it was kind of cheesy, but I just couldn't imagine what way Kuru would've done this, and I had to come up with something. Also, sorry this story is turning out to be so long. I just really like writing, and the elephant princess. Together they make…an elephant princess fanfiction mini-novel!(I'll try not to make it to long though)! Anyways, R&R please!
