A/N: Hey guys! Sorry this took so long...
Unconsciously my head leaned towards Vaughn's shoulder and I soon fell asleep. Images flashed through my mind, pictures of Mom, Dad and Alex; they were all smiling, scenes of what happened the last season appeared replacing the pictures.
Meeting Taro's family on the boat
Meeting Julia and Mirabelle.
Getting to see Lanna.
Meeting Denny and
Finally getting to know a certain cowboy.
I smiled and the scene shifted, it was when Dad was leaving us. He had left us with a huge debt that he said he was going to settle, but who knew that he was leaving us for good?
Weeks passed, debt collectors came knocking our door every day, and we eventually had to sell them our house and went to live with my aunt. The years passed and I learnt that Grandpa had a farm somewhere on these islands, I always hated the city but I couldn't bear leaving Mom and Alex; but Mom told me to do what made me happy, so I bought a boat ticket and left.
The scene shifted again, this time a bright light shone blinding me, a woman stepped out from the light; she had braided long green hair. She introduced herself as the Harvest Goddess. She winked at me and left again through the bright light.
My eyes opened slowly, then I realised that I had fallen asleep on Vaughn's shoulder; I blushed and stared at the ground, not daring to look up at him. Then suddenly Vaughn took my hand and pulled me to my feet, my cheeks reddened. We left the forest, I quickly went up to my farm after muttering a quick good night to the cowboy. I opened the door and went inside; I closed the door behind me and sunk to the floor. My face was red and I could hear the pounding of my heart in my ears. Stupid cowboy... I thought as I stared up at the ceiling.
The next day, I woke up with a thud. Natalie had pulled off my blanket and I landed on the floor, she laughed before helping me up.
"What was that for?!" I grumbled while rubbing my head. She shrugged. As much as I love Natalie her pranks can go a bit overboard, like the time we switched the book titles upside down and Taro said he couldn't recognise the titles, it was so funny. When Taro found out that it was prank, he was furious and made me and Natalie clean up their store room. While I was changing, Natalie was glued into the sofa watching TV. When I was done watering my crops and feeding Hope, I went back into the house and found her sleeping on the sofa. I sighed and went over to her; and kicked her off the sofa.
"What was that for?!" she shouted angrily. I shrugged. "Knowing that you wouldn't wake up if I called, I used the most effective method." She sighed and stood up, stretching.
"Well then, let's go," she said and went out the door. We left my farm and went down to the animal shop; and found that Julia had almost burnt down the kitchen again. Mirabelle came into the kitchen and saw the mess and immediately asked Julia if anything was damaged, luckily nothing was, she sighed in relief and told her to clean up the mess, and Natalie and I helped out.
Afterwards, we headed down to the beach and met up with Lanna. We sat on the dock and chatted while Lanna and I were fishing; after a while I ended up with a pile of boots again and Lanna a bucket of fish. We laughed and noticed that the sun was beginning to set and said our goodbyes to Lanna. Natalie, Julia and I sat on the dock watching the sky turn orangey red and soon night fell and the moon came above the horizon; we sat in comfortable silence until Julia and Natalie decided to go back first. We said goodbye and I was left alone.
"Whatcha doing out here? Stranger," Denny sat down beside me.
"Doing some stargazing, what about you?" I asked.
"Well, I saw you from my window and thought you might like some company," he said and looked up at the moon. For some strange reason, I blushed. A cool evening breeze blew.
"You okay?" he asked, I nodded. A comfortable silence settled between us.
"Hey Chels, can I ask you something?" the fisherman asked while twiddling his thumbs. He looked nervous. I nodded.
"I-I'm thinking about asking Lanna to go on a fishing trip with me tomorrow, do you think I should?" he asked; in the dim moonlight I could see that his face was a bit red. I was a bit shocked at first but I knew that Denny had liked Lanna for some time and that thought brought peace to my mind. I smiled.
"You should go for it," I told him with a smile. His eyes widened a bit and he smiled.
"Thanks Chels, you're a good friend you know that?" with that silence followed and we spent most of the night looking up at the starry sky.
