Mara had known Chayson all her life. Chayson had a crush on Mara ever since he saw her the day she came back from her first day of sword training. But Mara had news Chayson didn't know about yet. And they were both only 13.

Mara stood on the hill that overlooked the town. It wasn't very big. The town of Campara had always been her home. She loved living there. But now that the future-bearers had told her of her destiny, she didn't know how she would adjust. She didn't know how she would be able to leave her home and her friends for  the great city of Interferna. She wondered how Chayson would feel about all of this.

She had been waiting for Chayson for at least ten minutes. Chayson wasn't usually late either. He always did his best to make it on time, especially when the event had to do with Mara. He had always been Mara's best friend. Mara had never been very popular. She was one of those people you consider friends, but not the kind you like to hang out with.

"Mara!" a voice came from the distance.

Mara looked down the hill to see Chayson sprinting towards her. He had his sword at his side, sheathed. His face was beaded with sweat as if he had been running a marathon. But she knew he had been in sword training. Otherwise he would have had his sword back in his bedroom. That was also most likely why he was tardy.

"Where have you been slowpoke?" Mara grinned at her friend.

"Sword training! I am finally level five!" Chayson said.

He kept rushing up the hill. When he finally got to the top, he hugged Mara.

"Good to see you! Been awhile because of our sword training! I can't believe we have our's at different times! What luck huh?" Chayson said.

He was happy today, which only made Mara even more depressed. She didn't want to ruin his mood, but she had no choice. He needed to know. So she sat down with her back to the village, so that she was facing the sunset. Chayson sat down next to her.

"So what's up?" he asked cheerfully.

"Um.. so you are level five now in sword training? That's cool! Now you only need three more levels and you will have caught up with me!" Mara said in a nervous tone.

"Mara? What's wrong?" Chayson said, concerned.

"I only have two levels to go! You have five," she kept going.

"Mara! Answer me! I can tell something is wrong," Chayson asked.

"Okay, but you are not going to like it," Mara finally said.

She hesitated a moment, trying to choose her words carefully. She didn't want to make it seem as if she were leaving him behind.

"The crown phoenix comes to get me next week," she said softly.

"What do you mean? The crown phoenix? Isn't that the ruler's phoenix?" Chayson said, obviously very confused.

"I got my destiny from the future-bearers today. I'm going to Interferna," she explained.

"Interferna?" Chayson asked.

"Chayson. I am the new ruler of Valyenna. I am leaving the town of Campara and I am going to the castle in Interferna," Mara blurted it out fast, trying to get it over with.

"I-but-you can't just..." Chayson was at loss for words. Tears welled up in his eyes.

"Chayson. I'm very sorry. There isn't anything I can do about it," Mara said sadly. Her eyes started feeling puffy, and she felt them tearing up too.

Chayson stood up, and looked at the sunset. It's radiant glow was beautiful, but he looked upon it in despair. He didn't know what he would do without Mara. He flipped his jet-black hair out of his face. Mara then stood up next to him. She grabbed his hand. Chayson felt his face turning bright red.

"I'm sorry. I can't stay," she said, looking into his stormy, grey eyes.

Chayson couldn't help it. He cried. Mara looked at him as if he were a lost puppy. She laid her head on his shoulder and cried with him. Soon she would be nine hundred miles away from her best friend.

Mara took her head off of his shoulder and squeezed his hand.

"I'm going to miss you," she said.

Chayson would miss her more then she would imagine. He would have never made it to even level one in his sword training if it weren't for her. He stood, looking into her comforting, deep amber eyes. Then she did the most unexpected thing. She kissed him.
