Empty Beds (Peder)

Drake made dinner then left to retrieve Destiny. He told me to eat and if he wasn't back before I was done I could just go to sleep. He didn't return, so I followed his instructions and went to bed.

In the morning, I got up to check the other beds in the home. Drake's was empty as I expected. Destiny's however, surprised me. Hers was empty as well. My eyebrows furrowed in concern as I went toward the living room. Maybe I should talk to the head councilman. Upon entering the living room, I stopped in my tracks. Curled up on the couch was Destiny, with her head resting on Drake's shoulder while his own head on top of hers. Both were sleeping. I smiled, then went into the kitchen. I thought it was time I learned how to make breakfast.

The End
