Several Months Later
Robin Huntingdon stood on a hilltop and surveyed a sight he had feared he would never see again; Locksley. Home. And best of all, a dark haired woman was running up the hillside to greet him, her eyes shining with love. It was Marian.
"Robin!" she called delightedly "You're home!" He pulled her into a tight embrace and kissed her passionately. She laughed as he lifted her into the air and swung her around.
"Where's Guy?" She asked, surveying the rest of the expedition "And Will?" she added noticing the absence of the young carpenter.
"Guy was attacked by wolves while out hunting." Robin told her "He was killed."
"I suppose I should feel sad that my fiancé is dead." She remarked "But I have to say that I'm glad he's gone."
"Me too" He admitted "Now we can be together without him interfering." He paused, and then knelt on the grass. "Marian, Will you marry me?" She considered for about five seconds before replying.
"Of course I'll marry you Robin!" she threw her arms around his neck and kissed him again, long and sweet.
"Now, what happened to Will?" she asked suddenly. It took Robin a minute to figure out what she meant. A distant look came into his eyes.
"I suppose you could say he deserted." He said at last. She stared.
"Will Scarlett? Deserted? Where? Why?" She couldn't believe it. Will was one of the most loyal and reliable people she knew. She couldn't imagine him deserting the army. And in the middle of the wilderness?
"He fell in love," Robin explained quietly "With an Indian girl named Saffiya."
Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoyed it.
