Learning of a Secret
Swift Heart stood there sweating and nearly crying before she ran off. Proud Heart and Take Care were right behind her.
Grumpy looked at Champ who shrugged. Champ sighed and said "Come on dude." And the two walked off.
Swift Heart pushed open the door and lay down on the couch and began sobbing.
Proud Heart walked in and saw her and said "Oh honey." And gave her a hug which she gladly returned.
Take Care walked in too and closed the door behind her then locked it.
Swift Heart keep crying saying "I'm sorry, I'm sorry."
With Proud Heart rubbing her back saying "You got nothing to apologize for its okay shhh."
Swift Heart tried to pull it together and said "Oh man this is bad isn't it."
Take Care shook her head and said "Not at all. You'll be fine."
Swift Heart chuckled and said "Don't lie to me. I know it's bad."
Proud Heart smiled and said "Well it could have been worse."
Swift Heart sighed and said "What do I do?"
Proud Heart shrugged and looked at Take Care who said "Get away?"
Now they both were looking at her and Swift Heart said "What?"
Take Care nodded and said "Well you just got married right? Go on a honeymoon."
Proud Heart nodded and said "She has a point."
Swift Heart wasn't so sure "Well, it sounds good but how can I relax when he who shall not be named is in the back of my head?"
Take Care thought about it and said "Distract your mind."
Now Proud Heart was confused "Distract her mind? How?"
Take Care sighed and sat down in a chair and said "It's very simple just try to take your mind off the world."
Swift Heart shrugged "Guess it might work but what if Grumpy...tries something?"
Proud Heart asked her "Well, what are the chances of that?"
Swift Heart made a face and said "Well, I may or may not have..."
Take Care raised an eyebrow and said "Have?"
Swift Heart took a deep breath and said "Told him we should try for kids?"
Proud Heart smacked her forehead and said "Oh that's a problem."
Take Care nodded and said "Though after that, I think he knows to give you some space."
Swift Heart sighed and said "Alright now for the hard part. Finding him."
The other two nodded and Proud Heart said "Well come on."
Then there was a knock on the door which Take Care answered "Hel.."
She stopped when she saw Grumpy with flowers "Hey Take Care can I go into my own house?"
She nodded and said "Of course, of course." And he walked in.
When Swift Heart saw him she gave him a hug and said "I'm sorry."
He chuckled and said "It's alright, I got you these."
And he handed her some Tulips which she nearly squealed over "Still a gentleman to the end."
He laughed and she smiled "I'm gonna find a vase."
He nodded and she ran off. Once she was gone he looked at the other two and said "So, what wrong with her?"
Take Care looked at Proud Heart who shrugged and said "No clue."
He raised an eyebrow but before he could press Swift Heart was back rather giddy. She smiled and said "Say Grumpy?"
He looked at her and said "Yes?"
She smiled and said "Why don't we take a little vacation?"
He looked up at the ceiling and said "I guess that'd be nice."
She smiled and gave him a hug.
Take Care bumped Proud Heart and the two left...
Once out of the house Proud Heart ran into Loyal who looked like not too pleased. "Proud Heart there you are!"
She rolled her eyes and said "Hi Loyal."
He crossed his arms and said "What?"
She shook her head and said "Nothing, let's go."
Loyal nodded and took her hand as the two walked away from a confused Take Care. Once out of Take Care sight Loyal stopped and said "Why do you have to run off all the time!?"
Proud Heart shook her head and said "Because it's fun! Why do you think?"
He pointed a finger at her and said "Don't, Proud Heart I get worried sick when you're gone."
She sighed and said "I know it's just...I'm not exactly gonna be able to go on adventures pretty soon and before I become bed ridden I would like some excitement."
Loyal ran his hand down his face and said "Proud, you're walking for two please I beg you if your gonna run off let me be with you!"
She sighed and said "Okay, okay."
She smiled at him and said "I'm kinda tired wanna head home?"
He nodded and the two left again.
Noble Heart and True Heart couldn't make heads or tails of the situation "Noble it's nothing I'm telling you!"
He shook his head and said "Nobody shoves someone like that for nothing."
He put air quotes around "Nothing" she sighed and said "She's probably just stressed and us barging in won't help."
He shook his head and said "Alright, now what?"
She shrugged "No idea."
He sighed and said "What time is it?"
She looked at her watch and said "Around Noon."
He nodded and said "Lunch?"
She nodded "Lunch."
And the two walked off...
Everyone left the wedding area pretty much as soon as Grumpy and Swift Heart did. Except for Gentle Heart and Bright Heart who were deciding on what to do. "Gentle Heart I don't wanna to home!"
Gentle Heart threw her hands up and down to her side and said "Well, I do please Bright Heart?"
He sighed and said "Don't you wanna get something to eat first?"
She shook her head and said "Well, we can eat at home."
He slid his hand down his face and said "Fine, fine come on."
And he took her hand while she blushed slightly. As the two walked they bumped into Innocent Heart who smiled and said "Hey guys!"
They smiled and said "Hey, Innocent."
Gentle Heart said "What's up?"
She shrugged "Nothing, just wanted to ask if you guys were free?"
Bright Heart looked at Gentle who shrugged and said "I don't see why we wouldn't be."
Innocent smiled again and said "Great um can I bother you two to start my Caring mission practice?"
Bright Heart said "No problem."
Gentle nodded and Innocent nearly squealed but held it together "Great!"
Gentle smiled and said "Come on we are gonna get some lunch first."
She nodded and followed the two...
Nathan was in a bit of shock unable to process what he had just saw. He shook his head and said "Talk about a weird wedding."
When he felt a hand on his shoulder and he jumped. "Geez Nathan relax."
It was Grams with her friendly smile. "Grams! Don't do that."
He said holding onto his Heart and breathing heavily. She rolled her eyes and said "Oh dear calm down."
He caught his breath and said "What do you need?"
She smiled again and said "Just checking up on you."
He chuckled and said "Checking up on me? More like trying to give me a Heart attack."
She laughed and said "Well how you feeling? Besides the obvious."
He shook his head and said "Fine, I feel fine thank you."
She looked at him with sad eyes and said "Nathan when are you going back to Vitolinè?"
He looked at her and said "Soon, soon Grams."
She tilted her head and said "How soon?"
He shrugged "Today, tomorrow. One of the two."
She nodded and said "Just make sure you say bye to everyone."
He nodded and said "I will, how are Hugs and Tugs?"
She smiled and said "I'll show you."
And the two walked off...
