Note: Alright this is my second fic. Yippie. I like how this story is going to go, and I hope you review it. And...oh yeah: I do NOT own Harvest Moon.
A Shooting Star
"Always and forever?"
He smiled at me. "More than forever." He said quietly. "Never forget that" He kissed my nose, then my forehead. I snuggled closer to him, my cold body quickly heating up under his warmth.
If this had been the first day I had gotten here, I wouldn't have believed him. I heard he used all my friends to get to another. It was terrible. But I know him deep down now. I know that of all the girls in the world, he would never use me. Our love was inseparable,
as were we.
I looked up at the night sky. We went almost every night, while everyone in the valley was sleeping. I had always been tired the next morning, and found myself slacking off at work all the time. All I could think about was the next night. I couldn't help myself.
He'd always pass my farm, walking toward the Goddess Spring. Each day, he came and said hello and I made him lunch.
"The stars are beautiful tonight." I whispered, hoping that I wouldn't be able to wake anyone up at this our.
"Not as beautiful as you." He smiled.
"Look a shooting star!" I almost yelled, but then remembered that it was two in the morning,
and I didn't want anyone to come out and ruin this special moment.
"Make a wish" He sat up.
"I wish..." I said aloud. "That we will be inseparable, and that love will keep us together forever." I thought in my head. "Alright" I then said aloud.
"What did you wish for?" He asked kindly.
I smiled. "I can't tell you, or else it won't come true" I shrugged.
We leaned in for a kiss, but were interrupted by a rustling noise behind us.
We both turned, and saw the thing that ruined it all.
I sat up quickly in bed, or at least I tried, as my belly stopped me and I came back down to my pillow. Looking over, I saw Skye, sleeping with a smile on his face. I smiled back at him, but he turned away. I frowned.
After lots of effort and much pain, I somehow sat up in my bed, then getting up and wobbling into the kitchen. I needed some water, to help my mind clear the memory that haunted me in my dreams. With the lights off, I quietly made it over to the counter and began sipping my water.
"Honey?" The lights turned on. I jumped a little bit, turning to see Skye. "You scared me"
I scolded him.
He nodded. "I'm sorry, I didn't mean to. You weren't in bed, so I got worried. He put his cold hand on my over sized belly.
"It isn't due for another week," I reminded him. He only shrugged. "You never know"
I bobbed my head. It might be tomorrow, or in an hour. You never do know what will happen.
Your life is a mysterious path with twists and turns, surprises jumping out, and your emotions walking beside you.
I looked around for the time, but there was only one clock in our small house, which was in our bedroom. "Do you know what time it is?" I asked.
Skye nodded, "It's three thirty. I checked before I came in, just in case." His eyes were flashing around the room, as they always did before he asked a question concerning me, although I have no idea why. "What happened? Are you alright?"
I closed my eyes and nodded in agreement. "I'm fine, I was just..." I couldn't tell him about the dream. It was too painful. "I-I was thirsty."
I knew he didn't believe me. He always scratched the top of his head when he didn't believe someone. But he let it go, and for that I was grateful. "C'mon" He said quietly, holding his hand out for mine, "Let's get back in bed." I took his hand and followed him. He gently laid me down on the bed and kissed me good-night.
