Chapter 2 I came to say Goodbye… For Good
Disclaimer I don't own Pair of Kings. Too bad.
I looked out at what Boz was pointing at. Was that a hot air balloon? Yeah it is and it looks like it has the Kinkow swirl on it. Who would have one of those? Wait. No it couldn't be. But I don't think it could be anyone else. My thoughts were broken by Boz.
"Do you know if anyone took one of those balloons lately?"
"Not lately." We stayed there for a few more minutes and watched the balloon get closer till we were able to make out a person leaning over the edge and looking over down at the island, the person looks like they'll land in the middle of the plaza. I headed down to meet the balloon in the plaza, Boz followed me and we just arrived in time to see a black haired boy getting out with his luggage.
He turned to face us and smiled at us and nervously scratched his neck. "Hey Boom."
I couldn't even say anything. How could he just come back after being gone for a year and then just say hey! I didn't' have to because Boz spoke up before me.
"Hi I'm King Boz, and this is my brother King Boomer. Welcome to Kinkow!"
Brady looked at him confused. "I know who he is but wait did you say you're a king?"
"Yeah, I used to be King of Mindu but well now I'm co-king. Who are you?" Boz replied.
"I'm…" he started.
"Brady. His name is Brady." I said.
"Wait Brady? Our other brother?"
Brady looked even more confused if possible. "Other brother? Boomer what's going on?"
I sighed. "Brady the day after you left there was a storm and Boz was King of Mindu and saved his people from being drowned. His ship washed up here on Kinkow and it turns out he was our long lost brother. So now he's co-king." I finished awkwardly and Boz looked uncomfortable the whole time I was talking.
Brady opened his mouth to respond but he didn't get the chance because the doors to the castle burst open and Mikayla burst out and rushed to me. "Looked King Boomer I'm sorry about what happened, I mean for any of this to happen."
"It's alright Mikayla." I said surprised that Mikayla didn't even notice Brady standing there.
She sighed in relief. "Good, I'm so glad you're not mad at me anymore." She looked over at Brady and Boz. "Hey Boz, hey Brady." She turned around and was about to enter the castle but suddenly froze and turned back around.
Her eyes were wide and she slowly took a step forward. "Brady?"
"Yeah?" Brady said nervously.
She suddenly ran forward and sprang on to him causing him to stumble back and barely have enough time to catch her and wrap her in his arms.
I can't believe it Brady's back! When his arms came around me I felt like I was on cloud 9. The smell of him is exactly the same but he seems to be more muscular and taller than I remember. But I am definitely not complaining. My arms find their way around his neck and I cuddle up into his shoulder. He's really here! I've been having dreams about this since he left one year ago but no dream could ever describe the warm fuzzy feeling spreading through me.
"So I take it you're happy to see me."
I giggled into his neck. "Yeah I am. I really really am."
"You're not going to kill me?"
"No. Not now at least." I held on to him tightly, and I couldn't stop smiling.
Wow! I can't believe I'm actually falling for him! When he left Kinkow I was crushed and I felt so guilty that I went on a guilt trip, since then I've been trying to look happy so then nobody would find out about my budding crush on the ex king of Kinkow but I guess I might have played that way too well considering the fight me and Boomer had earlier.
No Ones POV
Mikayla pulled back slightly from the hug, and looked into Brady's warm chocolate brown eyes, she was about to start to lean in when Boomer awkwardly cleared his throat.
"Well, um, I guess you two have some catching up to do so…" He was about to walk back into the castle when Brady stopped him.
"Wait Boom, I think we need to talk. All of us."
Mikayla looked disappointed.
Boomer looked confused but then became serious and asked. "Yeah I think we do. Why did you come back to Kinkow?"
"Well, I wasn't going to come back for a year…but I figured I should say goodbye…"
"Wait what? You're leaving again?" Mikayla asked angrily.
"Brady… what do you mean goodbye?" asked Boomer.
Brady sighed and said. "I'm not exactly leaving Kinkow… what I mean is that I… I have cancer."
