Cici blinked at him, then sniffled. "Kay. I love you."
"I love you too." Everett moved to scoop her up.
Cici sniffled. Then hugged tighter.
"What's wrong?" Everett whispered, carrying her away.
She shrugged. "Everything."
"Can I try to make it better?" Everett asked tenderly.
"No. You can't. I have to marry you. In two weeks." He sniffled.
Everett whimpered. "I'm sorry you're trapped with me."
"I'm sorry..." Everett whispered.
She clung to him tightly. "It's not like you have a choice."
"I'm still sorry." Everett whispered.
