Destiny - Chap.2

by Dily

Two years before

I didn't want to go to the theatre that evening, but Eamon really wanted to, he almost begged me and I couldn't say no to his dark eyes. I didn't feel really well, but I couldn't understand why. The carriage we were in moved slowly trough the city.

I never liked those things, they just appeared useless to me. I know… I was a strange girl, but I couldn't do anything to change, mostly because I didn't want to.

For a second I had the sensation he wanted to say something else, but stayed silent. I felt his eyes on me as the carriage moved and the horses neighed...
