The engagement party had been a strange blur of introductions, small talk and the repeated questions of ‘Have you set a date?’ and ‘Do you have your dress?’ Aimee hadn’t known the answers to any of the questions directed at her, since the wedding appeared to be entirely under her parents’ control, so she’d simply said they were keeping things a secret until her and Deaglan finished school. Of course all of this had come after Deaglan had kissed her in the middle of the room.
Aimee wasn’t entirely sure how it had come about, or what it had meant. One thing was certain, it had disrupted her parents’ plans for a nice dramatic speech. Aimee and Deaglan gave their engagement away pretty spectacularly by themselves. However, now Aimee was left confused. Deaglan hadn’t made any sort of move towards her in that way since the day in the library. She’d only just come to accept that he hadn’t enjoyed that kiss as much as she did, then this happened.
She’d tried to sleep after the party, since her body ached and clearly needed rest. However her head wouldn’t quieten; there were too many unanswered questions. Putting on her dressing gown and some slippers, Aimee left her room quietly and walked down the hall until she found the guest room Deaglan was staying in. She knocked quietly before opening the door. “Deag? Are you awake?” She murmured into the dark room.
