Wow! I haven't updated in half a year! I'm so sorry!

3rd person POV

"I've told you a thousand times- I'm not interested!" Doon said rather loudly. He began to walk a little faster, forcing Teah to catch up. His eyebrows furrowed in impatience as she persisted.

"Oh, come on." she urged, "It's just one little date!"

"No." he said flatly, "Do I look like I have 'SIGNLE' written on my forehead?"

"No, but-"

"Exactly. But with every passing moment, I think you do." He sighed in frustration.

She stopped walking, and for some odd reason, so did Doon. Teah smirked. She was oh-so close.

"Oh, please." She scoffed, "You haven't seen herin like, two weeks!"

Doon thought to ask her how she'd known, but then reflected on how she'd been following him around for the passed amount of time. He shook his head.

"Which is exactly why I'm going to see her now. You guys have been working us extra hard lately. I haven't had the time." He hinted, "In other words, I don't have the time for you either." And without another word, broke out into a slow run toward where ever she was not.

Teah frowned, and then stomped off toward her and Tick's normal planning place. At least there was one guy who wouldn't brush her off- even if he did hate her. She sighed as she walked up the small hill. Tick was already sitting there, lying back with his arms crossed behind his head.

"You're late." He greeted. She raised an eyebrow. She didn't need more rejection that day.

"I know. I was working overtime."

He sat up. "Any luck with that?" he asked, seeming bored.

"No!" she exploded, "They're inseparable!"

"No, they're not. I don't care what we have to do. I'll get a crowbar if I have to." He said with a hint of hatred in his voice.

"Why do you want that girl anyway?" Teah asked. Tick turned his face away from her, but she could see his ears turn red. She smiled to herself.

"Why do you like that Harrow kid?" was his acidy reply. She rolled her eyes and sighed once again. He could be so troublesome. "She shook me off again." He said plainly after a few moments of silence.

"Same with Doon." She pouted. Tick grunted as he sat up.

"I've got a plan." He said, "But we're going to have to make sure that they're completely deprived of seeing each other- so much that they forget."

"In case you haven't noticed, that's what we've been trying to do, Tick." She said, "And it isn't working!"

"Like I said…" he said impatiently, "I have a plan. Now shut up and listen."

Lina was skipping stones across the river when she heard her name being called. The voice startled her; she stood up with her hands behind her back, as if to hide something when there was nothing in her hands.

"Lina!" the voice called again. The owner came in sight, and she calmed down. Doon ran up to her, panting as if he had run a mile in a minute. Which he had.

"Doon!" she greeted, a smile brighter than the sun painted on her face.

He collapsed on the ground, his chest heaving up and down in an attempt to catch his breath.

"Doon?" Lina asked.

"I'm alive." He said, raising one arm, which then plopped back to the ground, "I just ran across the whole village."

"Why?"

He sat up and raised an eyebrow, a smirk on his face. "Because I wanted to see you." He said, and then added dramatically, "And I would die if I didn't see you within the next 56.7 seconds." She giggled and sat down beside him.

He decided not to tell her about Teah. It would only worry her, and none of them needed that.
