A/N: It's been a really long time since I updated... Sorry!
Stall. Stall... Maybe she'll forget why she traveled a gazillion miles to a country she's never been to. Yeah... that's totally logical... I closed the final gate, and she rose to her feet, and I quickly faced her.
"Carter... so that is your real name..." Monotone. Damn it. I'd rather her be screaming like a banshee, or crying, or something! I hate when I can't read people.
"I didn't lie about everything..."
"What else have you failed to mention?" She crossed her arms and stepped closer to me.
"You know, homosexuality is looked down upon in my country?" I cleared my throat and shrugged. "That was completely humiliating... Everyone knew about it but me! My mother knew the whole time... And your father knew... And all the lies you told me..."
"They weren't lies!" I finally chimed in.
She glared. "You lied about being a boy... That isn't exactly considered a little white lie."
"D-did your mom even tell you why?"
"Yes! You dressed up as a suitor to protect me from Cane."
"And I already told you that... Not everything I told you was a lie. They just needed someone they could trust."
"Well, I needed someone I could trust."
"But I didn't think all of that was going to happen! I had a job to do!"
"Ah, so you were just doing your job..."
"No! No! That's not my job!" I slapped myself on the forehead. "I'm a seventeen year old girl! My job is to work here! At a bait shop. To go to school, and to be invisible. It's my dads job to protect Princess', but I volunteered to help him..." Breathe. "You weren't supposed to pick me."
"But I did..." she huffed. "And what made you assume that I wasn't going to choose you?"
"I'm invisible everywhere I go, and I don't exactly see how a Princess would go for someone like me... I'm not exactly cut out to be royalty."
She stepped closer to me and placed her palms on my cheeks. "You put your life at risk to rescue me. You're so brave, and I know that you would do anything to protect me, even risk your life..." Her eyes lightened and her lips curled. "You're everything I ever wanted."
My breath hitched when her lips connected to mine. I'm a girl... She knows I'm a girl... she's kissing me and I'm a girl and she's a Princess... and I'm a girl... I'm a girl...
My mouth gapped open. "You are confused..." she stated. "Well, I've always liked girls... very much so. My mother assumed I confused my friendships for something that is more." She laughed. "But I never stopped feeling that way towards girls and women... And when I met you, I thought my mother would finally be happy with my choice of love interest since you were a boy, but she fought me every step of the way. It didn't occur to me why since she tried to set me up with boys of all sorts, even if they were a little less than desirable."
"Wait... I'm still confused... Why were you mad?"
"Because you lied." She clasped my hands together and kissed them. "Do you have any idea what it's like to be so sheltered from the world, and to live up to some expectation that I don't... I'm here with you, now." She pulled me closer by my hips and whispered. "I still want you to be my first."
Oh, now I get it.
"And you're so perfect." Her teeth went right for my earlobe.
"Wait... what about the throne, and your entire country?"
Rosie chuckled. "Oh, my first cousin will be taking over that..." she trailed. "He seems like he wanted it more anyway." She leaned in for another kiss.
"Your mom's okay with this?"
"Oh, absolutely not!" she gasped. "But you know my temper tantrums."
I've witnessed quite a few of her tantrums, and they were like a hurricane. The only ones I've seen were always because of me. There's a fine line between obsession and love.
"What are you going to do here, in America?"
Rosie squealed. "Right! Your father has been amazing! He signed all of the papers, and pulled strings to get me a permanent residency in America." So that's where my dad's been...
"I'm supposed to be your cousin," she interrupted. "Rosalinda Gonzalez." She flashed her newly made I.D. "Apparently, my parents died in a car accident, so I moved from I-Oah to live my favorite uncle and my cousin Carter."
"We're supposed to be cousins?"
She pressed her lips against mine again before answering. "Yes."
"Well, we'll have to keep the PDA down to a minimum..."
"PDA? I do not understand..."
"Public Display of Affection." I stepped backward from her. "We have to be careful... People aren't so accepting with this here either, so we have to tone it down a notch."
Rosie looked hurt. "W-what are you saying?"
"Exactly what I said... We can't be all over one another in public."
Relief spread across her face. "Yes. Yes, of course." she nearly jumped and flashed me a wicked grin. "This is your house, is it not?"
I nodded, and she immediately yanked me into my house.
A/N: This took me forever to update! Really sorry about that... But I really can't believe I'm still getting reviews for this, so I shall continue.
