Gosh I’m so scared
I’m freaking out
Ma’am Nina had already called Blue and told her that she should come home and meet someone
I’m really terrified right now
I wish I could run away
Last night was peaceful for me
Because I heard stories about Neptune City
Though the stories were sad ones, I was still very glad that my mother and Jace were okay
And Jace is now a prince
But right now I’m really paranoid
I wonder if Blue would come today
Or maybe tomorrow
Or maybe now
I’m gonna faint
Right now, I wish I could have Princess Gladys’ boldness and guts
So I’ll be able to face Blue
But it seems I’m fully Rainbow now
Princess Gladys has forsaken me
Just when I needed her most
Ma’am Nina came to the room where I was
Mm Nina : won’t you come down for lunch Rainbow? It’s lunch time
I stood up and nervously followed her downstairs
I remembered how I consumed food yesterday like never before
I always loved to eat so much
And yesterday, i ate to my full
I couldn’t even finish two slices of bread during breakfast because I was paranoid
How will I be able to eat lunch?
I sat down and ma’am Nina served the spaghetti and meatballs
It looked delicious
I began to eat with alacrity
Ma’am Nina : Blue said she’ll be coming today with Adrian
Immediately I heard that, my spoon dropped to the floor and my heart began to beat as loud as a talking drum
Ma’am Nina : Rainbow, are you okay?
I couldn’t breathe properly so I managed to take water and restore myself
Me: I’m…. I’m okay mother
Mm Nina : are you freaking out again?
I nodded and she smiled
Mm Nina : I hope you know Blue loves you so much
And she really misses you too
She’ll be glad to have you back
I nodded and smiled
Mm Nina : now eat, then we’ll prepare some sea food for dinner together
She smiled brightly and I felt better.
I began to eat slowly
Slow and steady wins the race right?
I was so and steady
And I won the race of three plates
Me: Derek is really not going to change. I thought that when he finally wakes up, he’ll be a new man
Blue laughed and kissed my neck
My hands were around her waist
We were sitting in my SUV, leaving the hospital
Blue : he’ll definitely change
I played with the ring on her finger
Blue : yes
Me: I don’t want this ring to be here for long
Me: hey I’m serious
Blue : I know
Me: do you know our engagement is on the internet
Blue : what…
Me: watch this YouTube video
She took the phone and watched the proposal
She gasped and covered her mouth
Blue : Adrian….
Me: we’re having our engagement party on Saturday night
Blue : I’m sure Audrey has seen this. She’s always on the internet
Me: I just uploaded it though
So this should be the reigning news in Scotland
She smiled and I kissed her
She pushed me away
Me: why that push?.
She looked towards the driver and I laughed
I cuddled her back
Me: mother called you while we were at the hospital right?
Blue : I’m sorry I didn’t tell you. But we have to go to St Andrews today
Me: any problem?
Blue : no, she wants us to meet someone
I nodded and yawned
Blue : is he hungry?
Me: let’s go to my chamber and eat alone. I don’t wanna go to any restaurant yet
She hugged me tight and sweet
I began to remember how it all started
In my chamber
And how she was literally avoiding me
How I wasn’t in my right senses when I came back from Glasgow and heard she was missing
How happy I was when I found her
Every moment with Blue was sweet
Except for when we were fighting
Blue : why are you laughing?
Me: haha, remembering good times. Come on, let’s go in. We’re already at the castle
I woke up in his bed
Looked around but he wasn’t in.
I stood up and washed my face then headed to the living room.
He was standing beside the bar, with a glass in his hand
He looked back and smiled
He dropped the glass and walked to me
Adrian : hey
He hugged me and started kissing my neck
I chuckled and he carried me to the cushion
I was wearing white shorts and a yellow vest
He kissed my neck to the top of my cleavage then stopped and looked at me
Adrian : you slept for two hours straight
I chuckled again
Adrian : you’re hungry?
Me: not really
Adrian : you still need to eat. We’re leaving for St Andrews remember?
Me: oh, I almost forgot
He carried me up to the kitchen and I sat on one of the long kitchen stools.
He brought out some snacks and fed me
Adrian : when we get married, I’ll make sure you won’t meet the chamber this way
He gave me a soda and I drank it before he spoke
Adrian : because I want this place renovated
Me: it’s already okay
Adrian : I want it to be better, for my wife and baby
Adrian : finish up. I’ve already gotten our tickets. We’ll leave in an hour
He pecked me and left.
I began to imagine what it would be like to have a baby with Adrian
They just arrived
I’m gonna faint
I ran to my room and closed my door
I heard mother greeting them happily
Then I heard her scream happily
I wonder what they told her
I took my phone and felt like telling someone to come and take me away
I mistakenly turned on my data and news started flowing in of Prince Adrian’s engagement to Blue Connor
I screamed too
Oh my gosh
I feel like swimming round her like a whirlpool right now
I’m unexplainably happy
My best friend is getting married soon
I stood up and began to dance happily
Then my door opened and ma’am Nina walked in
Mm Nina : they’re here Rainbow. Come
She held my hand and we walked down the stairs
Immediately they saw me, they shouted
Adrian : Princess Gladys?
Blue: mother, what is she doing here and why are you holding her hand?
She stood up and Adrian stood up too, behind her
My tears were almost falling
Ma’am Nina : calm down Blue. She’s not Princess Gladys
Blue : then who is she? Princess Gladys twin?
Her tone was sarcastic and my tears fell
Adrian noticed I was crying and told Blue
Adrian : Blue, she’s crying
Blue : I don’t care. I know this is Princess Gladys, she’s just coming back to finally ruin us. And she has brainwashed my mother. I’m not falling for her tricks
She took her purse
Ma’am Nina : listen to me Blue, listen to what we have to say
Blue : no, I’m leaving
She turned and stormed towards the door
Prince Adrian : Blue wait
Ma’am Nina : Blue stop
Me: Blu…ue it’s me, Rainbow
Then she stopped and looked back at me
I was crying profusely already
Ma’am Nina : when did you become so big headed Blue? You’ve been dying to see her for years and now that she’s right in front of you, you’re acting like a pervert just because she is not looking the same
Ma’am Nina was ???? angry and Prince Adrian was just staring in shock
Blue : please, I don’t understand
Me: I’m Rainbow, it’s me. I’m not dead. The grey ditch brought me here and erased my memory. That’s why I didn’t remember you at all. That’s why I became evil
I was really crying because I felt sorry for everything I did
Blue still didn’t believe
Blue : then how did you become a Princess and why is your face different
Blue was crying too
I guess she was in pain
Ma’am Nina : that’s a long story. But if you want Rainbow, the one who you were born with on the same day. If you want that face, here it is
She touched my face and I became the real Rainbow
Blue stepped back and covered her mouth
She began to cry
Adrian held her and her tears flowed
Me: remember when I broke your blue shell, and you became angry with me. We didn’t talk or see for a day. Remember when we pulled a prank on a nobleman, he caught us but we made it look like an accident.
Remember all the fun times we had together in Neptune City
It’s still me
She busted into loud sobs and ran to me
We hugged each other passionately like we didn’t want to ever leave each other again
Our tears flowed onto our shoulders and made them wet.
Me: I’m so sorry. I’m sorry for everything
Our cries slowly turned into tears of joy as we smiled in between sobs.
We lived with each other for 18 years straight in love and care
And now we’re 22
The hug was so long that it was as if we were making up for the fours years we spent apart
