Disclaimer: I own nothing.
It was a clear Saturday afternoon in the forest. Emily Morgan sat on the roots of the big tree that was in the center of the forest and about five yards away was a small creek. Engraved in the tree was the letter T. Emily liked to come here to think and because not too far away was her great grandmother's grave. Her name was Winnie Foster.
Emily was a skinny girl with short brown hair. It went down to her shoulders and it had highlights of blonde in it. Her eyes were turquoise but wih a little more green to them. She was wearing a light pink tank top and blue jeans.
Around two o'clock, Emily heard footsteps coming towards her. She knew that it wasn't her mom or dad because they let her stay out late on account that she is 15. She went and hid behind the tree and watched as a boy, from the look of him he was probably 17, coming towards the tree and ther great grandmother's grave.
Emily had the feeling that she had seen him before, but she wasn't sure. The strange man had brown hair with a little bit of blonde in it and blue eyes that were so dark it reminded Emily of the depths of the sea. He wore a t-shirt with a leather jacket and blue jeans. Emily suspected that he must have a motorcycle because he had a black helmet in his right hand.
It was strange; it looked like he knew her great grandma. He put a little bundle of flowers on the grave and it looked as if he was crying. Emily gathered up the courage and decided to confront him.
"Who are you and what are you doing here?" she asked stepping out from behind the tree.
He looked so startled, "I'm sorry. I didn't know anyone was here," he said whipping a tear from his eye, "She was a good friend of my grandmother."
"What is your name?"
"My name is Jesse Tuck."
Emily was so surprised. Her great grandmother had told stories of her first love, Jesse Tuck, and his secret. "Are you thee Jesse Tuck?" she asked.
Now he looked panicked. "Do you know me?" he asked, "Are you related to her?" he said pointing to the grave.
"Yes! I'm her great granddaughter."
"What is your name?"
"Emily, if it is any business of yours."
"What do you know about me?" he asked with a lump in his throat.
"Actually a lot. She used to tell me stories of a family named the Tucks and how they shared their secret with her. Also how she loved the youngest, he was 104 but looked 17, his name was Jesse." She paused to look at the grave then back to Jesse, "He told her that the spring near this very tree, could let you live forever. She almost drank it so she could be with Jesse. She didn't of course but she told us the story in hopes that we might one day know the young man of her dreams. She always told us not to drink the water unless we were one hundred percent sure it was what we wanted. Not a single soul has had any of the water since then."
He looked up through his eyelashes, "She never forgot did she?"
"No. So are you the Jesse Tuck from her stories?"
"Yes I am. It is our story that she had told you. Now come on let us go for a walk and I'll tell you a few things she might not have told you."
Jesse took Emily all over the forest without getting lost even once. Finally Emily asked, "How do you know where you're going?"
"Winnie probably didn't tell you this but we used to live about twenty minutes form here. I know the way because I have traveled through these woods all my life. Well you know what I mean." he said with a laugh.
"Really? Where is it?"
"Well my family had to burn it when a man found us. I can't tell you how much your great grandmother helped us out that day."
"The man in the yellow suit right? I never forgot a single detail about the stories."
"What were some other things she told you about?"
"Uh. Not much she loved your family. How you escaped. Things that you said. Just some girly things. She told me about how you promised to love her till the day you died."
"I meant what I said," he said with a half smile, "Ir broke my heart when I came and found her grave. I decided that I would come to town every five years or so, that way I could visit the grave."
"That's why you looked so familiar. When I first saw you. I must have seen you go into the woods the last time you came."
"That was about seven years ago. I normally stay for a week or two."
"How long are you going to stay this time?"
"Probably two weeks, but it depends on if someone notices me." he said kicking a stone into the trees.
"Well I noticed you. And I know your secret. Are you going to leave any sooner?"
"No. I know that I can trust you." Jesse said with a small laugh.
They walked through the forest for hours. They talked and Jesse showed Emily all the places that he used to live and his hangout. After about three hours Emily looked at her watch. She looked a little worried so Jesse asked, "What's wrong?"
"It's just I have to be home in fifteen minutes or I'll be in trouble." she said, "How is the fastest way to get out of here?"
"Don't worry I know this forest like the back of my hand. I'll get you out of here real fast." Emily smiled at him and they started back.
He led Emily out of the woods. They came out to the street right near Jesse's Harley Davidson.
"I'm still fifteen minutes away and I only have ten minutes left. I'll never make it."
"Jump on. I'll get you there in seven. That is if you trust me."
"I trust you." She said as she got on the back of the bike. Jesse handed Emily his helmet and she held on tight as they headed towards her house. Emily always said years later that she could remember the smell of him as she held onto him.
When they got to her house Emily got off and handed him the helmet. "Thanks for the ride."
"No problem. So do you want to meet tomorrow?"
"Sure, how about you pick me up her around one o'clock?"
"All right see you then."
Before Jesse could get back on his motorcycle Emily grabbed his jacket and pulled him back some. Before Jesse could say anything she gave him a kiss on the lips.
Jesse just stood there smiling. Emily said, "Well I'll see you tomorrow." She turned around and saw that her mother was standing in the doorway. Emily's smile faded as quick as it came. Emily just stood there staring at her mother and she stared right back. After a minute or two Emily heard Jesse's bike start up and drive away.
Emily started her long walk up to her mother and she knew that her mom was going to flip her lid. Sure enough when she was near her mom, she said in a shrill voice, "What were you doing on that motorcycle with that boy?"
"He's someone I met."
"For how long?"
"Well why did you ride that dangerous thing with him?" she said even louder, "He coud have been a kidnapper and could have killed you."
"He is a nice guy mom!"
"What's his name then?"
"Jesse Tuck." Emily stated simply.
"Jesse Tuck? Not that Jesse Tuck that my grandmother...," she said in a wavering voice.
"Talked about. Yeah it is." Emily said.
"He's a stalker then, there wasn't ever a boy named Jesse Tuck, No one can live forever." She screamed as Emily walked past her and over to the stairs.
"Yes there was! Great grandma would never lie to you guys!" Emily yelled as loud as she could, "You are just to stupid to believe in him!"
Her mother had all she could take. She marched up the stairs behind Emily and screamed, "That is it you are gounded, and you can't see that boy ever agian. Also you won't be able to leave your room at all. You will get your meals in the morning and at sunset."
"Fine you bitch!"
"Make that thee weeks!"
"You will go to bed this minute and will be woken up when dinner is done."
Emily's mom walked downstairs, got the key to her room and locked her in.
Well if you stayed with it to the end of the chapter here it was. So tell me if you liked it or not. Hope someone reads it.
