Eric: Marriage

I froze. "Marriage?" I choked out. Myst tilted her head looking at me. She blushed slight, swallowing nervously.

"If my parents allow it" She whispers. Thoughts swam through my head. Sure I loved Myst but.... I hadn't really thought about marriage. It hadn't crossed my mind that I could ever be that close to someone.

"Uh, you mean like a church and vows and rings.... and stuff?" I whisper swallowing. I could fight anyone. Deal with my own death but I couldn't speak normally in the propect of marriage. My tongue stumbled over to words that were so foreign to my lips.

Myst laughed. "Yes, your face is so funny" She giggled. I realised my face was one of shock. Not at the fact of marrying Myst but just pure shock of marriage being put before me.

"I don't know. I've never thought about it and my parents would probably not like it either. They hate me..... something tells me you wouldn't even be an exception for there hatred to.... gifted people" I mutter stroking her cheek. I would go into fury if they tried to hurt Myst like my dad does to me.

"But-" I cut her off putting a finger to her lips.

"I will marry you, Myst. But I think I should be the one asking your parents for permission which means I will have to buy a ring.... hell, I'll have to get out some money for once" I stop. "How do you get money out of a bank?"

The End
