Chapter 21 – Acceptance

For the past three days, Mara had been miserable. Jun Xiong was constantly on her mind. She remembered how she had hugged him the first time they met. He was so full of warmth, so loving, and he had saved her. She was happy with him. Every single day with him had been spent in bliss. Aside from her mother, she had never been so close to anyone else. He had been her pillar of support. Together, they tasted the sweetness of happiness, the bitterness of sorrow and perhaps the warmth of love?

“Goodbye my love” Jun Xiong’s last words returned to her on this day. Mara recalled the sadness in his tone. He had never hurt me, she finally realized. Her love for him had overpowered her fears.

I want him to know I love him too.

Mara went to the small lake. She knew he would be there. The stars were glistening in the sky. They’re smiling at our love, Mara thought to herself. As she was nearing the spot, Jun Xiong’s outline by the lake came into sight. His eyes were closed. Wait! Something’s wrong! Mara’s instinct told her that Jun Xiong is about to jump into the lake.

She sprinted towards him and pulled him back. His eyes snapped open and stared at her incredulously. Under the light of the stars, there were tears glistening in Mara’s eyes. He nearly left me

“WHAT are you trying to do?! Do you intend to leave me FOREVER? Do you know HOW MUCH I’ve missed you! I LOVE…” Mara’s shouts were put to silence. Jun Xiong had kissed her on her lips.

She had never kissed before. Jake had taken her body but not her first kiss. This was her very first kiss. Mara felt a surge of excitement that took her breath away. Jun Xiong's hands came around to embrace her as he kissed her. All the warmth entering her body made her crumble. Her knees were weak as his strong embrace surrounded her.

It had been a gentle kiss. Although the kiss had not been long and certainly was not the type of elaborate kiss displayed in the theatres, the kiss meant everything to Mara. The moment their lips touched, she knew this is a memory that would stay with her forever…

yuu shindemura

hehe that's very nice--though i dunno i seen it coming, must have been from the last paragraph you have on chapter20. ^.^ sorry.

anywayz, i still find it romantic! way to go! ^.^

and oh, you're very much welcome about it. i just said what i have in mind and what i feel, your story is very good, it's not something that challenge novels and whatnot would just judge it like it's some kind of car auction. the beauty of this story plus the author's passion are already the winning point. ^.^
