Hey guys! Sorry it's taken me so long to update this story. I didn't really know where to go with the story, but you've given me some really great ideas! I'm so excited to see how this turns out!
I was all together shocked that the king had said that! I mean, allowing a scoundrel like me to be with the Princess of Corona? It seemed too good to be true. I must be dreaming! But no, I'm not because this dream is lasting a long time.
As soon as it was time for the lantern festival, Rapunzel was rushed off so she could get ready. This year the kingdom finally had something to celebrate. When the King and Queen stepped out, it went silent. They walked to the edge of the balcony, passing the lantern.
The King lifted his hands and announced, "The Princess of Corona has been returned!"
When he said this, the crowd cheered until he raised his hands again, "We would like to introduce Rapunzel and the man who brought her back to us." What? I thought I wasn't going to be a part of this!
Blondie and I were pushed out the door and we walked to where the King and Queen were standing. Hesitantly, we waved. The ceremony went on as usual, but this time in happiness rather than solemn hope.
Although today had ended well, it had been long and exhausting. We all needed rest so we went to bed early. The next few days would be busy and we needed all the rest we could get.
As I thought, the week was filled with preparations. I was knighted and put in charge of Goldie's protection. We were both given lessons on proper etiquette, dancing, speech, and any other mumbo jumbo royalty stuff they could come up with. I never knew I could be this tired! And all because of this party they were holding in honor of the return of the return of the Princess. I knew Blondie was just as tired as I was, so I decided it was time both of us took a break for the day. Of course, I made sure to inform the King and Queen and then we were home free!
We took Maximus with us because he was the kingdom's best and we took off for the town square. Rapunzel never did manage to see the town before, so I thought now was as good a time as ever.
I took her into a bakery first. It was about time for lunch, and I hadn't thought to pack anything. We both ordered soup and a cupcake. We took the cupcakes with us to ensure time to walk around.
"So where do you want to go first Blondie?"
She bit into her cupcake, thinking. When she finally swallowed she replied, "I want to see everything."
"All right. Grand tour of the town coming right up!"
"Hey Eugene, what flavor cupcake did you get?"
"Chocolate, I think. Why?"
"Do you want to trade me a bite?"
"Sure. Why not?"
I eased the cupcake down near her mouth so she could take a bite. But as she was about to take a bite of it, someone bumped into me and the cupcake smashed into her face.
"Eugene! What was that for?"
"I'm sorry! Honestly, I was pushed. Let me just help you get this off your face."
I bent down and gingerly placed my lips on her cheek, sucking up some of the cupcake. I could feel her skin heat up at my touch, so I kept trailing kisses down her face until I made it to the corner of her lips.
What was I doing? I pulled back. I know her father gave us permission but I knew Rapunzel might not be ready for this. After all, I had expertise in this, and she had never left her tower let alone kissed anyone!
"Why did you stop?"
I looked down at Rapunzel. Most of the cupcake was off her face now except for a little on her lips. It was so tempting...
"Uhh..." I cleared my throat trying to buy time, "Well... I didn't want to...I didn't know if..." What was I supposed to tell her?
"It's all right," she whispered hesitantly, "I want this."
After the words escaped her lips, I couldn't hold back any longer. I placed my hand around the back of her neck and slowly leaned down. Her eyes fluttered shut. As I closed the remaining distance between us, I let my eyes fall shut as well.
Now, I've kissed many girls in my days as Flynn Rider, but none of them could compare to this one. This kiss wasn't one of loveless passion. It was innocent and soft, full of love. She tasted of chocolate and something I could only describe as Rapunzel. I lost myself in the feeling of her lips against mine, and pulled her closer to me, my arm around her waist. I never wanted to let her go, and I never wanted to forget this feeling.
As she started to run her hands through my hair, I realized we should probably stop. I didn't want to, but I knew I should before it got out of control. I pulled away, but kept her close.
"I love you, Blondie."
She nestled into my chest, "I love you too, Eugene."
When I realized that people were starting to stare, I pulled back and cleared my throat, "Well, should we start that grand tour now?"
"Okay, but I think I'd rather be doing something else."
I was shocked, and I'm sure she could tell because she blushed after realizing what she had said. As tempting as it was, I knew we should save it for later. We didn't want people talking about the recently returned 'innocent' Princess of Corona.
We walked around nonchalantly. Neither of us wanted to be in town any more, especially after what had happened. I tried to stop thinking about it, and I knew Goldie was trying hard too but it wasn't working. A kiss like that is hard to forget.
The only thing she really took an interest in was the library in town. She had never really had many books to read, and she loved to learn. She obviously hadn't stumbled across the library in the castle. I had previously discovered it the other day while trying to escape the boredom of etiquette lessons. Maybe I should take her there later tonight.
We returned to the castle shortly after leaving the library. Neither of us wanted to be in town anymore, we had other things on our mind. Although we might not get much time alone together, I could always find time to steal another kiss.
It was late when we were finally left alone by everyone. I decided to take her to the library, I knew she would probably spend most of the time reading books, but I enjoyed just being with her. But you never know, something might come out of it.
Okay, so I decided to end it there. Not as long a chapter as I thought it would be, but I hope you still enjoyed it! For those of you that actually read this: Tell me if my writing is good...I mean like good enough to be a beta reader. I've always wanted to try it, but I don't know if I'd be good enough. I really love writing, and I'm getting an A in my AP Literature class...tell me what you think in your reviews! Thanks so much!
