A/n: Hope everyone likes this fic! Please review!
Both Ruth and Randolph were celebrating Ruth's nineteenth birthday. As Ruth and Randolph walked around the Castle's rose garden, they were holding hands and talking gently to themselves.
"It's so beautiful outside, don't you think so Randolph?" asked Ruth as she looked up at him smiling, as he was staring at her.
"Yes, I do" Randolph answered truthfully, but he wasn't talking about outside. Ruth catching what he said blushed.
A memory came back to her, when she told Ted that she was in love Randolph.
"What the hell is the matter?" asked Ted.
"If you tell anyone I'll kill you."
"On my honor," said Ted.
Ruth looked at him.
"As crowned King of the Hidden Land, may any pain you care to name come upon me sevenfold if ever I reveal this secret without your express permission. What bloody hell is wrong, Ruth?"
"I'm in love with Randolph."
Ted's jaw dropped.
She lightly chuckled at the memory. She looked at Randolph again and smiled at him pleasantly. He too, smiled at her.
"I love you, Randolph." Ruth whispered to him gently, looking in his lovely eyes.
"I love you too," whispered Randolph as he gently pressed his lips on hers.
A/n: Well? What do you think? This is my first try at a fic for The Secret Country Trilogy. I hope to make more as soon as I re-read it.
