The weather was unusually dreary that morning, adding to the already depressing mood of the kingdom. Thousands of people, from peasant, to noble had come from all over Albion to pay homage to their first and last hero ruler, and her virtuous reighn that had been so tragically cut short. As the rain poured down upon the bitter masses, ten soilders slowly hoisted and carried the large golden coffin down the steps of Castle Fairfax, and out into the courtyard. Wails began to rise as the coffin passed each of the people standing on either side of the garden. Logan and Victoria stood beside Walter and Jasper, the young prince, soon to be king stood firmly and though his insides were drowning in tears, not a single drop of them left his brave eyes.

CROSSFIRE Chapter 23"The woods around Bower Lake are magical and beautiful at night!" Connie said as she gazed up at the large moon shining off the surface of the trees, casting silver reflections along the waxy leaves. "I spent ten years of my life in these woods, playing with my friends and Lance, training, and helping protect the village from bandits when I was old enough. I truly was the Hero of Bower Lake, back then." She continued sadly. Reaver looked over at her, catching the sorrow in her tone.CROSSFIRE Chapter 23 in Romance More Like This
"What's the matter?" He asked. Connie heaved a heavy sigh.
"So much has changed. I've fallen in love with the one man that I swore that I would never give the time of day, and if that wasn't life changing enough for me, now, those people in Bowerstone expect me to become queen. I don't even come from royal blood lines at all!" She ranted.
"And?" Reaver urged her to finish.
"I guess its just that before I met up with you again, I had actually retired from being a hero. I was supposed to be enjoying the simpl

"Excuse me Captain, but where are we going?" Reaver turned and looked up from the wheel of the ship.
"My enemies will be looking for me, we need to lay low for a time. I was thinking of hiding out at say Bower Lake? How does that sound?" Connie looked up, amazed.
"YOU want to go to Bower Lake?"
"Why of course my dear lady." Connie twisted a piece of auburn hair around her fingers.
"But, Bower Lake doesn't have a port my dear Reaver." Reaver looked over at her again.
"My sweet girl, you have indeed not forgotten that I am not Albion's most famous pirate for nothing. I know this country, land and sea as well as many others, like the back of my hand. We are going to Bowerstone, and then we shall take a carriage to Bower Lake."
"I'm sorry, I'm just tired I suppose." Connie replied embarrassed.
"Its quite alright." There was a long pause within the quiet night for what seemed like an eternity. Then, curious, Connie piped up again.
"So what other lands have you been to?" The pirate looked up
CROSSFIRE Chapter 29Connie smiled at her appearance in the mirror. Her silk wedding gown billowed and flowed across the floor, her long auburn locks had been brushed and conditioned until they were as smooth and soft as her dress, and the silver tiara that she wore atop her head glistened as the rays of morning light danced across its surface. Lance barked approval as his mistress gave herself a final once over.CROSSFIRE Chapter 29 in Romance More Like This
"This is the big day Lance, I'm really going to marry him..." A gentle rap on her bedroom door signaled Connie that her maidservents had come to collect her. Two girls, Sandy, and Courtney, Reaver's old maid from Bloodstone, entered the room.
"Oh wow! You look beautiful!" Courtney remarked. Sandy nodded.
"Yeah, I don't think that I've ever seen you look this glamourous before." The young gypsy added. Connie just blushed.
"Thank you." Sandy took her friend by the arm.
"It's time. Time to marry your charming scoundrel." Connie took a deep breath and then left the room with her two friends. They walk
CROSSFIRE Chapter 27Reaver's eyes slowly opened as he heard the sound of gears cranking loudly. He took a look around and then remembered what had transpired the night before. He had been walking along the dark Bowerstone streets, a place in which he had not been for over 300 years. It had been his retreat after what he had done in Oakvale. He had been a stranger there, and had started over fully. The memories of the first night that he had spent alone after the carnage flooded back to Reaver as his boots treaded hard of the cobblestone. Those streets hadn't changed in all that time. Reaver had retreated back to his ship, where he found more than enough food for him and Connie. However, whilst aboard, Reaver had been jumped by two men, who immediately tried to kill him. But his pistol had seen many a situation before, and it quickly put a mortal bullet into each of them. But as he had turned to leave, there in the doorway, stood a man. He had not been a pirate, nor a thug. He had been a will user of someCROSSFIRE Chapter 27 in Romance More Like This
Innocent Javie 2I rolled out of bed and let out a loud groan. Today I was restarted school all over again. My mom and I had to move after I was expelled for fighting. I couldn't help that I was being teased for wearing makeup and being gay. Yeah I'm gay, if you've got a problem with it then just shut your fucking mouth. I walked over to my closet and pulled out a white shirt that I had cut into a tank top myself and my shredded black skinnies. I fixed my hair and put in my colored contacts before looking at myself in the mirror. My "live" tattoo was standing out on my chest and I smiled softly.Innocent Javie 2 in Romance More Like This
"Jeremy Brian Griffis, hurry up!" My mom shouted and I just rolled my eyes before pulling on my silver cowboy boots and grabbing my stuff. This day is either going to be really great, or a living hell...
When I got to the school I grabbed my schedule and walked to my first class. I knocked softly on the door. The teacher stood there and she had a small smile on her face until she looked up at my face. Her e
Innocent Javie 10I sat up and looked around. I must have passed out because I was laying on a bed and Dahvie was sitting in a chair curled up and sleeping. I heard him moan softly in his sleep and then jumped awake. I stared at him in confusion and he took a deep breath and sighed. Dahvie grabbed the chair he was sitting in and moved it closer to the bed.Innocent Javie 10 in Romance More Like This
"How are you feeling?" he asked softly.
I shrugged and said, "I've been better." I looked down at myself and realized I was shirtless and covered in bruises. Damn this was going to hurt tomorrow... "Why am I shirtless?" I asked looking over at Dahvie and raising an eyebrow.
He blushed furiously and stammered, "I-I... uh... Had to take it off to... to check your b-bruises..." he trailed off and I looked down at my damages again. At lease Dahvie was kind enough to save me from that mess instead of leaving me to lay there like so many people would've...

Garrett kissed my lips softly and said, "That was fun, beautiful," and he pulled on his boxers and tied my wrists to a nearby chair. I was still naked, but he really didn't seem to care.
"What are you doing?" I asked looking at him trying to get free.
"Did you really think I would leave Dahvie alone?" he asked staring at me. My jaw literally dropped and he let out a laugh and started climbing the stairs.
I struggled against the ropes and I heard Dahvie shout, "DON'T FUCKING SAY HIS NAME!" Seconds later there was a scream of pain. Garrett was hurting Dahvie... More screams came from the room and the louder they got the more I struggled to get free. Soon enough it got quiet and Garrett walked down the stairs holding a pair of scissors in his hand. He cut the ropes that wer
Innocent Javie 12Dahvie bit his lip and closed his eyes and whispered softly, "He said he was going to make you his... Wh-whether you wanted to or not..." A small tear rolled down his cheek and all I wanted to do is wipe it away. He opened his eyes and I stared at him in shock.Innocent Javie 12 in Romance More Like This
"You mean...?" I started to ask, but I trailed off and Dahvie nodded.
"He can't do that to you Jayy. He almost did it to me and..." Dahvie trailed off and tears started to fall down his face.
"I won't let him hurt you like that," he whispered. I stopped for a second, but I released his hand and opened up my arms.
"Come here," I said and he slolwy laid down beside me and I adjusted my position so we were both comfortable and he was hitting any of my bruises.
I wrapped my arms around him and whispered into his colorful hair, "Dahvie, listen to me."
Tears continued to fall down his face and I whispered, "He won't get me, okay? I swear to you he won't. I will fight him off and run to you." He looked up at me and our lips were only i
Innocent Javie 28I saw Dahvie run out the front doors of the school. I ran after him and I saw him stop at the edge of the street and walk both ways before heading towards the 7-eleven. Just as I was running after him I heard a screech of tires and I looked up and saw a car hitting him.Innocent Javie 28 in Romance More Like This
"DAHVIE!" I screamed and I ran after him. He was laying on the pavement and he turned his head slightly to look over at me.
"J...Jayy," he whispered faintly as I landed on my knees next to him.
Tears were falling down my cheeks and blurring my vision as I cried out, "Oh God Dahvie..." I could hear sirens in the distance. "Oh my God..." I whispered.
He held my hand and squeezed it lightly and whispered, "I'll be... fine Jayy."
His eyes closed for a few seconds, but then he opened them back up, "I... I love you," he whispered and his grip on my hand weakened. I wrapped my arms around him and a paramedic walked over and tried to get me to let go of him.
"No! You can't take him away from me!" I screamed. Tears continued to

hesitated and said, "Garrett's at my house."
"What?" he asked in a shocked voice. Before I could say anything back my mother pounded on the door.
"Jeremy Griffis get out here and apologize for your rude-ass behavior!"
"Mom! I'm not coming out while he's here!" I shouted.
"I can hear you, you know!" Garrett also shouted and I sighed and said into the phone, "I gotta go."
"Why?" he asked in a nervous tone.
"Don't worry Dahvs. Remember my promise? I intend on keeping it. I'm just gonna kick his skinny ass out of my house." I said.
"Ok, be careful," he squeaked out and I said, "I will," and hung up the phone. I stood up and opened up my door. My mother was standing there with her hands on her hips and Garrett stood behind her.
"Jeremy. Apologize. Now," She growled and pointed to Garrett.

Innocent Javie 16After we had a really long (and hot) make-out session, Dahvie and I decided to eat something besides each other's faces. We were laying on the couch and my head was resting on his chest.Innocent Javie 16 in Romance More Like This
"Oh, wait," he said and I lifted my head and looked at him as he sat up.
"Huh?" I said.
He kissed my lips softly and said, "I keep forgetting cuz your fucking gorgeousness keeps distracting me. I wrote you something."
That must have been what he wanted to tell me last night, but he had decided not to. I smiled and said, "Really?" Dahvie was a great songwriter and singer to add to that. He nodded his head and I sat up and looked at him.
"Well go get it, I wanna hear," I said like an excited kid when it gets a new toy. He laughed and stood up and walked upstairs. I sat patiently on the couch. I was barely able to contain how excited I was. When he walked back down the stairs I was literally hopping up and down. He walked over and sat in my lap and I wrapped my arms around him and pulled him close to me.
Innocent Javie 4"How'd you get that nickname?" I asked in a curious voice.Innocent Javie 4 in Romance More Like This
"Because I'm fucking amazing and I know it," Dahvie said with a bright smile.
"Well, usually. Ran out of hairspray this morning," he muttered pointing at his multicolored ponytail.
"I think you look great," I said without thinking. He looked at me and then I finished, "I tried to do with the whole colorful thing, but I'm to dark on the inside."
He laughed softly and the bitch teacher barked, "Torres, Griffis, is something funny?"
"No ma'am," Dahvie said glaring at her coldly.
"After school detention, both of you," she growled. Great first day at the new school and I've already got detention. Just fucking great...
"Well that's fucking retarded," I muttered under my breath and Dahvie looked over at me and smiled.
"Mr. Griffis?" he said and I looked over at him and could tell he was trying his hardest not to laugh.
My felt heat rise up in my cheeks and I said, "My real name is Jeremy Griffis."
"I'm guessing you hate it?" Dahvie as
Innocent Javie 14I finally climbed out of bed to go over to Dahvie's house. I had just got off the phone with him about thrity minutes ago so I didn't have a lot of sleep. We both had decided to have a "pajama day" so all I had to do was pull on a tank top and some boots. I yelled to my mom where and I was going and I started walking to Dahvie's house. It was only five mintes away from mine so I didn't have to walk far. The people that did see me were looking at me like I was crazy. Is it suddenly illegal to walk around outside in your pajamas? At least I'm wearing a shirt. When I got to Dahvie's house I ran the doorbell and he opened the door with a smile on his face. He was wearing Hello Kitty pajama pants and they looked adorable on him.Innocent Javie 14 in Romance More Like This
He hugged my tightly and giggled before saying, "I missed youuuu." I laughed and hugged him back.
"It's only been a fucking half hour Dahvie," I said as he took my hand and led me into his house.

"Hey, beautiful. I didn't expect to see you here," he said trying to kiss me.
I pushed him away and growled, "Where's the guy who beat Dahvie?" Garrett frowned and the ringleader of all the stoners stepped forward. I saw him yesterday while we were in detention.
"What do you wanna know about it?" he demanded. I snarled and without a second's thought I jumped on him. I started punching him and that's when I saw other people surronding me. Two of them grabbed me and jerked me on my knees so the others could beat the shit out of me.
"Jayy no!" Dahvie screamed and I looked over to see Garrett grabbing him and holding him. Garrett whispered something in his ear and Dahvie's eyes grew wide.
The other guys punched me a few more times and Garrett barked, "Alright enough!"
