Hiya! This is a Laurel/Tamani story, so if you don't want to read that, then don't.
It's Laurel and Tamani being cute before she leaves Avalon. I'm not planning on this being a oneshot, so if you want more chappies, review and tell me!
Anyhow, please enjoy this story!
Laurel stood silently, facing the wall, away from the door.
"Miss Laurel?" she turned to see a female spring faerie, beckoning for her, "Please follow me."
Laurel nodded slightly, and made her way to the door, following the spring faerie to a large room, a little like a human court.
The queen, looking beautiful in her blue-ish, sparkly dress, nodded at Laurel to sit.
"Laurel. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, will be to pose as a human child, and to inherit the land, which holds the gateway to Avalon. Do you accept?" The queen's voice boomed out all over the room.
Laurel gulped, and raised her head, to look over at her boyfriend, Tamani. He was struggling to keep a straight face, but he only held her gaze for a second or two, before breaking it.
"I accept." No matter how hard she tried to keep her voice strong, Laurel sounded wobbly, and unsure, but luckily, the queen and Jamison didn't seem to notice.
"You are dismissed." The queen spoke softly.
Laurel was in her room, standing in the same way she had previous to the meeting.
"Laurel?" she knew immediately who it was. Tamani.
She turned slowly, looking at him for a few seconds, before running into his arms.
"Do you have to go?" he asked desperately.
"Tam, it's my mission."
"But can't someone else go? Mara? You said she wanted to go!"
"Tam, I am so so so sorry, but I have to!"
"Laurel, please! What if you forget me?"
Laurel looked up, straight into his eyes, "I'll never properly forget you, Tamani, I swear. I love you, so much!"
"I love you too." Their lips touched and Laurel found herself wishing and wishing that she wasn't going. How could she leave him? It didn't seem rational.
"Don't forget me." Laurel whispered into his ear, and he drew back, eyes sad.
"Never." He relied.
She smiled at him, tears now seeping out of her eyes.
"Promise me something." She whispered.
"If they give me the memory elixir, remember that I love you, I really do. Don't forget that. When the time comes, don't let me forget that. When I come back, back to Avalon, we can be together…forever."
He tried to grin at her, but he was crying too.
"Oh, and Tamani?"
Laurel looked down at her hand, and slipped off her seedling ring.
She placed it on her palm, and held it out, "Keep this safe for me. Give it back to me when the time is right."
He nodded, taking the ring.
"I love you." Laurel hugged him.
"I love you too."
The kissed again, and then the voice of the spring faerie came again, "Miss Laurel, if you could possibly come with me?"
Laurel nodded, her eyes huge, terrified, and left, looking back at Tamani before exiting the room.
So there you go. I know it was short, but hopefully you liked it! Please review and I will see you in the next update, whenever that may happen!
