There are only so many single guys living in Trampoli. And there are a lot of single women. Almost all of the single women have their sights set on one man: Raguna. But who does Raguna truly want to be with?Rated: Fiction K+ - English - Romance/Hurt/Comfort - Raguna & Rosetta - Chapters: 2 - Words: 2,372 - Reviews: 1 - Updated: 01-04-13 - Published: 01-03-13 - id: 8872608

AN: I didn't write any of chapter 3, but uhm. Well. I'm gonna be really busy this weekend, so I wanted to get this up before than. Also, part of this was written while watching Supernatural (I cannot for the life of me remember which episode), and I think that my inner Destiel shipper kinda sorta showed itself somewhat in this chapter.
Oh, and you'll probably notice that I kinda sorta make fun of Mist. I tend to have a rather strong dislike for the first bachelorette you meet; Mist is annoying, Mana is stupid, Shara is weird, and Odette...is Odette. The only one I even remotely like is Odette. And I still rather dislike her.
I got nothing from the last chapter (reviews, follows, faves, etc.), but I don't really mind. This is a pretty small fandom. ONTO THE ACTUAL CHAPTER.
DISCLAIMER: Whoever it is that owns RuneFactory owns RuneFactory. I, sadly, do not. I merely own copies of the games.
Later that day, Raguna was visiting Erik, who, like he had when they'd first met, kept asking him at odd points in the conversation whether or not he had a girlfriend. Fed up with Erik's antics, Raguna bid him a good day and walked outside.
Walking past his house, Raguna quickly tended to his turnip patch before continuing onto Mist's house. He pulled a turnip out of his pack and approached her. "Mist, I have a turnip here for you."
"Oh! I like turnips!" the silver-haired maiden responded, delighted.
"I know you do," Raguna said. "And now, I must be on my way. It's almost 5:00, which means Rosetta will be picking up the items in my shipping box soon."
Mist paid him no heed as she was busy eating the turnip gift Raguna had just given her.
Rosetta closed the shipping box's lid softly. She was early; it was only 4:30, and she was supposed to making this stop at 5:00, not earlier. But wanting to avoid Raguna, she'd decided to stop early. Turning to walk away, she froze when she saw the brunette approaching her.
"Wonderful evening, isn't it, Rosetta?" he asked when he'd gotten within talking distance.
Forcing herself to relax, Rosetta smiled back at him, nodding.
Raguna glanced behind her, at the shipping box. "Already collect everything?"
Again, Rosetta nodded, not saying anything. She didn't trust herself right then.
Raguna looked back at her, "Lost your voice, have you?"
Relieved to have a plausible excuse, Rosetta nodded once more. She gestured that she had to go, and without waiting for a response, walked off.
Puzzled, Raguna watched her leave. He shook his head slightly and entered his house. Writing down an entry in his journal for that day, he flopped down on his bed and was soon fast asleep.
Spring eventually gave way to Summer, and with Summer came the arrival of two people. Both were from Kardia originally, much like Rosetta, Mist, Raguna, and a few others. But one of them, the rich, blue-haired Bianca de Sainte-Coquille, was rather mean and her elven maid, Tabatha, was her only friend, despite Raguna's attempts to make her talk to him. It was clear that Raguna was smitten with the anti-social Bianca.
By now, Rosetta had all but given up hope that Raguna would ever like her back. She hardly ever talked to him, despite him approaching her every night when she came to collect the items in his shipping box. And when she did respond, they were short answers that seemed to frustrate both Raguna and herself more than anything else.
Until one day. When Rosetta was out collecting everything that Raguna had put in there, Raguna didn't show up. Rosetta waited until 6:00 for him to appear, but the brunette never showed. Feeling a pang of sadness, Rosetta left, wondering where Raguna could possibly be. He'd never missed a pickup before. That's when Raguna came walking past, the pretty Bianca at his side. Her blue eyes were cold and uncaring, and she appeared to be telling Raguna some story about her father and how much he ate.
As the duo passed Rosetta, they barely glanced at her, and Rosetta felt jealousy burn red-hot throughout her. Her blue eyes narrowed, and she stormed off, her boots leaving a trail of footprints in the dry dirt. Stopping beside Kross's house, she ditched her collectings and stormed up the mountain road, still leaving footprints behind her. Stopping once she'd reached the observatory, she stood there for a few moments, her arms crossed across her chest, steaming. After a few more moments, she felt herself cool down a little, and she lay down. Gazing up a the clear, star-filled night sky, Rosetta lay on the grass with her arms and legs outstretched in a star shape until she fell asleep.
The next morning, Rosetta awoke to shouts. Standing up, she brushed the grass clinging to her clothes off as Raguna came racing up the dirt path. "Rosetta! Where have you been? Mist said you never came home last night! I've been worried sick," Raguna yelled at the skinny blonde woman.
She glared back at him. Her clothes were slightly damp, which did nothing to improve her mood. "Since when was it your job to make sure I'm all right, huh, mister?"
Raguna looked taken aback. "You're my friend. Am I not allowed to worry about you? Is it not custom for us to worry about our friends, our family?"
Rosetta narrowed her eyes at the Earthmate. "You seemed to be getting along with Bianca last night," she said, trying to change the subject. Raguna ignored her statement, instead choosing to repeat his questions. Rosetta closed her eyes, slowly counting to ten in her head. And when she finally did respond to Raguna's question, her voice was raised with anger, "No, not when your off having the time of your life. That's about you. Go run off and woo Bianca. See if I care." She turned then, crossing one arm across her chest, the other raised so her hand could touch her face, her forefinger and thumb resting on her eyebrows, the rest of her hand covering her face.
Behind her, she could hear Raguna begging her to listen, but she continued to ignore him before she eventually turned around. Rosetta took a step towards him, opened her mouth to say something, but quickly closed it again when Raguna's pleas died off. She took another step towards him, and then a few more. She stopped when they were practically touching before brushing past him, walking down the mountain pass, heading towards the house she shared with Mist.
