Disclaimer: I own nothing everything belongs to my favourite author, Tamora Pierce, well, except for the plot.

Her not so secret Secret

She was packing her stuff for tomorrow when she would be going off to adventures, when a knock at the door made her stop. She opened the door to find Jon standing there, a forced smile on his face.

"Can I come in, Alanna? I want to talk…"

She nodded and closed the door after him. Sitting on the bed next to him she asked, "What do you want to talk about?"

Jon's fingers cupped her face and he made her look up. "You know very well, what I want to say."

She faced him and a sigh escaped from her lips. "You want to talk about tomorrow when I get dubbed Sir Alan and when I'm going to tell everybody that I'm a girl, right?

He nodded. She continued talking, "There's nothing to talk about really. I'm just going to announce that I'm a girl after your father has dubbed me. Thom will be there to, beside me."

"Yes I know, father will be not pleased. But what about Roger; I know you have your suspicions about him, even though I refuse to believe them."

She met his eyes evenly. "Well, if I have nothing but my suspicions tomorrow, then I will and can't do anything…Unless I have someone to back me up?" she added hopefully.

He ignored the pleading in her eyes and words, and shook his head. "No, I can't do it, Alanna. He's my best friend, my cousin, but really, the brother that I never had."

She looked at him, disappointment written all over her face. She knew it. She knew that he wouldn't something like that. Not even for her…

"I'm sorry, I really am," he said, and went and opened the door.

"Wait, Jon." He stopped and she grabbed him into a passionate embrace. He hugged her back with the same passionate feel and then gently untangled her from himself. Making her look up into his eyes once again, he said, "I love you, Alanna, always have and always will, no matter what happens."

And with that he kissed her; gently, almost timidly, at first then in fiery passion. They broke apart and with a last look at her, Jon departed.

Alanna moved to go back to her packing when a cold voice made her look up.

"Well, well, well, if it isn't Squire Alanna. Enjoyed kissing my dear cousin?"

Alanna, shocked by the use of her name by someone unexpected, moved back and nearly toppled onto the floor.

"Roger," she managed to croak.

A/n: Well that's it! But I promise to get more into the story and write a longer chappie, if you will just review my story… Deal or no deal?

Let's just say deal, well, then, go ahead, and press that button on the left hand side.

Please, just do it!
