Whoo! First off, sorry for disappearing for so long! I needed it to be shady out back to take these pictures and, well, I was getting up too late and then getting tired too early, so I kept missing the shade… XD
Okay, now on with what you’ve all been waiting for! 😀
News of Jeremiah’s death came as quite a shock to me. When I asked Edmund about it, he said he suspected it was Frederic who murdered him. Believing that Edmund didn’t have a hand in it and that in fact, he had been honest with me before, I let him out. And now here we were, looking at Jeremiah’s tombstone.
“Are you alright, Liesel?” Edmund asked with concern.
“Yes, I’m fine. We didn’t love one another in the least. Though I am sorry that this all happened.” I replied.
“Do you think Frederic will come after you now?” I asked him.
“He may, but I think I can get him first.” He said.
“You won’t kill him, will you?” I questioned.
“No, not at all. I’m not like them.”
I let out a sigh of relief and looked to the distance. “I feel at peace now. I feel – free. Like I can live as I please. I can be happy now.” I said in a faint whisper.
“I can understand that. I feel much the same way.” Edmund agreed.
Edmund stepped closer to me and gently lifted my hand into his and said, “This can be a fresh start for us.”
“Now that you’re unmarried, the kingdom needs to be secure. The people will expect you to marry again before long.” He said, a gleam in his eye. I felt my heartbeat quicken as he spoke.
“Yes, I suppose so.” I said, trying to hide my smile.
“I’d be honored if you would ever consider choosing me, Liesel.” He said, holding both of my hands now.
I just smiled and hugged him, feeling safe and secure in his arms. “I more than consider you, Edmund. I choose you.”
Okay guys. Finale is next. Are ya’ll excited or sad? ;D
