Maeby took him by the hand and slowly started to lead him towards the back hallway. The castle was decorated in browns, pale yellows, oranges, and whites. “I know it’s around here somewhere…” Maeby mumbled to herself. Then, they came to a dead end that had what looked to be a painting of a parfait on it. “Don’t ask…”
Maeby giggled a bit, then grinned. “Alright! But, we may need to sneak out the back…considering they don’t even know that you’re here.” She suggested.
Maeby gently put her hand on top of his and smiled slightly. “Thanks…” She said softly, a red hue slowly appearing on her cheeks.
Maeby was still kind of confused, but assumed that his apology was genuine enough to be forgiven. “No, I’m sorry for making it seem different from what you were trying to say.” She frowned and slowly walked back towards him. “I just…I need to learn to stop over analyzing things…” Maeby admitted.
“Wait, what?” Maeby was a bit confused by his behavior…and a little frightened. Was he planning something against her? She didn’t know. Maeby then backed off a few inches.
“Well, they aren’t the best when it comes to non-threatening people sneaking in.” The guards were basically wontons with legs. Besides, they wouldn’t even have been able to catch him. They weren’t very fast, either. Maeby smiled even wider at the fact that he didn’t get caught.
“You never said I couldn’t! Therefore, I wasn’t cheating!” Maeby blushed a bit when he stroked her cheek, but then she grinned. “How are you?” She asked him.
“I think…” Maeby then whipped around, facing him with a grin. “You’re Tate.” She giggled once more.
Maeby jumped a bit, then giggled, knowing who the voice belonged to. “Hmmmm…I wonder…” She joked.
