Amos avoided her eyes, biting his lip. He clenched his teeth together then quickly stooped down and kissed her. He stopped and took a step back not looking at her, unsure if that was okay.
Cassy stared at him in disbelief for a moment, a blush rising in her cheeks. She looked down. "What was...what was that for?"
"Nothing." Amos said quickly ablush rising in his own cheeks. Looking up, he relised that more time had passed than he had thought. "I have to go." He said still blushing and not looking at her. Taking a glance at her, he said, "I'll be watching you, no worries."
Cassy whimpered. She didn't want him to go. "Do you really have to go?" She asked weakly. "Can't we hang out or something?"
Amos sighed, he never should have come out. "I'll be with you always. If you're ever alone, and need me just call out, I'll come." Amos said truthfuly. Quickly he kissed again, then ran off into the woods.
Cassy whimpered, fighting back tears. She hated being alone, absolutely hated it. With a sniffle, she started home.
Amos watched a far way off. He knew that she didn't know, he couldn't leave her alone. It might mean her death. Amos watched with a pang, she looked so sad, but he could never do that again, he mustn't.
Cassy got home to find a note from her parents that they'd taken the family out to dinner and she took too long to get home so they left without her. She was getting left-overs for dinner. "Fantastic. Could the day get any worse?" She whispered.
Amos couldn't go into the house, it had always been a rule. He didn't know who had layed it down, but it was never to be broken... well except under one circumstance. No! I'd never let that happen. He thought to himself. Quickly he went into the backyard.
Cassy curled up on the couch in the dark, moping mostly. She missed Amos. As weird and somewhat creepy as he was, she wanted him there with her.
Amos looked up at the living room window, he wanted to be there, with Cassy. Sighing, Amos ran to the back of the house. Under the porch, he found his food and money, he took the food and crawled out. There was a trapped door somewhere under there...
Cassy sat up, thinking she heard something. Being home alone always got her nervous, especially later when it was getting dark. She swallowed. "Amos?" She called out softly.
Amos's sensitive ears cought her call even under the porch. He scrambled out and ran into the house despite being quite filthy. He ran through the rooms, and finaly found her in the living room. Amos grabbed her shoulders, despratly searching her eyes. "Are you alright? Are you hurt? What happened?" She didn't seem hurt, but he was paniced.
Cassy whimpered. "I...I just...I got scared..." She said weakly, seeming slightly ashamed for getting him so worked up. "And I guess...I just wanted to make sure you were there..."
Amos gathered her up in his arms and held her tightly. "Don't you scare me like that." He breathed into her hair.
Cassy closed her eyes. "I'm sorry..." She whispered weakly. She did feel guilty and ashamed now.
Amos breathed out not letting go of her, not yet. He was still trying to calm down. "It's alright... Jeez, you scarred me." Amos pulled back and looked down at her his eyes dancing.
Cassy sniffled, trying not to cry. "I hate being alone..." She told him. "It always makes me jumpy and scared.
"Hey." Amos said. "You'll be fine as long as I'm here." He put a hand behind her neck and gentaly layed his lips on hers, leaving room for her to pull back if she wanted to.
Instead of pulling back, Cassy pressed her lips firmly to his, gripping the front of his shirt.
