Just a one-shot that came to me at midnight. Don't ask.
Cornelia rushed out of the Silver Dragon; her hair was dancing in the wind as tears spilt from her eyes. Why can't we just tell Elyon the truth? Why?
She half turned to see Caleb running after her. She ignored him and continued running, as fast as her feet could take her.
The earth guardian, as stubborn as she was, continued without hesitation. She ran straight for the park and looked back to see no one behind her. She sighed as she crashed on a bench with her head in her hands.
She doesn't deserve this. Her life is in danger, all because the others won't tell her who she really is. They know more about her life than she does, and now she's on a completely different world. She is nothing like Phobos, that son of a-
Cornelia felt a hand rest on her shoulder. She didn't look up to see who it was, and only kept a steady expression.
Caleb whispered as he made his way on the bench next to her. She ignored him and wiped a tear away cruelly, after placing her hands in her lap. Caleb looked down and placed his hand on top of hers. She looked up at him with watery eyes.
"I..." He was cut off by the blonde resting her head on his shoulder. He sighed sadly as he stroked her hair. "It's going to be okay."
"No, it's not. Ph-Phobos...He's g-going to hurt E-Elyon and...It's a-all my fault...my fault..."
Caleb felt his heart break. He hated seeing his girlfriend in such a state, it made him feel like he had done something wrong, the guilt washing over him.
"It's not your fault, Cornelia. You didn't know what would happen."
Cornelia sniffled as she pulled away from him and looked across at the grass. "What kind of a friend am I?"
Caleb pulled a strand of hair and placed it behind her ear. He turned her face around to meet her eyes and placed one hand on her cheek. "You're a great friend, everyone can see that. Not to mention my favourite guardian."
She looked up at him and giggled softly, as her face turned a light shade of pink. She leaned her head on his shoulder, and he placed an arm around her while leaning his head on hers. They stayed silent for a while, just enjoying the moment they had together – it was comforting. Cornelia let out a small yawn, as she placed a hand on her mouth.
Caleb turned to her and smiled, "Come on, I'll take you home."
He stood up and offered his hand to her. She looked up and smiled a genuine smile as she took it and walked across the park with him, hand in hand.
Everything will turn out alright...
Cornelia glanced at Caleb from the corner of her eye, and smiled to herself, and then looked back down at their entwined fingers.
I know it will.
A/N: What did you guys think? I thought it was adorable! Yes, this idea did come to me at midnight, it's true. It's what happens when you fall asleep listening to Taylor Swift and Christina Perri. Well, in my case it does.
I have decided to name this "Ours" and it will have random one-shots of Cornelia and Caleb. I don't know when I will add more one-shots, it might be a few days or weeks.
Please review and tell me what you think! Thank you!
