Greta lay on her bad, crying over what she thought, was her loss of Eric. “I just don’t understand…I love him so much…he’s the only guy I’ve ever loved, why would the world do this to me! Maybe I should just kill myself…no, no…I should fly away to another country ot something…oh dammit.” She soaked up her pillows and played a tape on her clock radio/tape player thingy. Suddenly, Greta noticed a figure climbing up the tree outside her windo, “OH MY GOODNESS!” She shreiked, but when she noticed the figure was eric she just turned away in embarrassment and whiped her tears. He tapped on the window as a hint to open up. “Eric what are you doing here? Shouldn’t you be driving Nicole somewhere?!” Greta said coldly. “Oh I’m sorry eric…it’s just I thought, since Paris…” “It’s not your fault Greta, it’s mine. I’m sorry, I’m so sorry. I care so much about you! Greta, I came her tonight to tell you that…” he faded out, and closed his eyes slightly trying to say what he wanted to say. “That you what…” Greta said with a solumn face, but inside her heart was beating a million miles a minute eager for him to say what she wanted him to say. “That I….” Eric noticed the song that was playing, *I’ll Be* “wanted to dance with you…will you?” *The strands in your eyes that color them wonderful • Stop me and steal my breath • Emeralds from mountains thrust towards the sky • Never revealing their depth • Tell me that we belong together Dress it up with the trappings of love • I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips • Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above • I'll be your cryin' shoulder • I'll be love suicide • I'll be better when I'm older • I'll be the greatest fan of your life • Rain falls angry on the tin roof • As we lie awake in my bed • You're my survival, you're my living proof • My love is alive and not dead • Tell me that we belong together • Dress it up in the trappings of love • I'll be captivated, I'll hang from your lips • Instead of the gallows of heartache that hang from above • Chorus • I've dropped out, burned up, fought my way back from the dead • Tuned in, turned on, remembered the thing you said • Chorus* “Okay Eric.” She slowly climbed into his embrace. She felt like the world was still, she and eric were alone on the earth. Her thoughts were interupted by a whisper. “Greta?” Eric’s voice was like the gentle tickle in her heart, “Listen to the words…” “They’re very pretty lyrics eric…you came all the way over here to tell me that you wanted to dance?” Eric blushed, he knew he had to say what he wanted to say to her sometime, “No Greta I didn’t come here just for that…” He pulled away slightly. “Then just tell me, I’m not going to hurt you.” She put her head back onto his shoulder. “Greta, remember how you said when you say I love you you will mean it….” “Yeah.” She closed her eyes and just relaxed herself by him. “When I say it I always mean it, and sometimes it’s hard for me to say it because I care about the person that much…” Eric whispered a notch loader. “Eric…” “Greta, I love you.” Eric pulled her face up so he was looking her straight in the eye. Greta’s eyes welled up. She knew that Eric wasn’t lying, she could feel it. She just couldn’t help but smile. “Oh Eric! I also…” It was now Erics turn to watch Greta try to get it out. Greta attempted again, “I’ve never said this to anyone but my mom eric, so…eric the thing is, yeah. Eric Brady” She stood up straighter, “I love you too.” Eric smiled and realized it was his cue to kiss her. He slowly leaned in for the kiss when Greta pulled back. “Eric do you still love Nicole at all?” Eric looked at her, and pulled her close to him simply, and then he just kissed her. Like that. “I guess no?” eric just as simply kissed her again, “of course no. I hate liars. I love Gretas.” Eric smiled. “Gretas?” “Yeah, the most wonderful kinda people in the universe, honest, loving, caring, beautiful, perfect!” “hmmm, that’s interesting, because I really like Eric Bradies!” She said with giggles. “…uh, and what are Eric Bradies like?” “Well they’re the perfect match for Gretas, they’re wonderful, caring, and very perfect! Eric?” “Yeah Greta?” “Will you hold me?” “Of course, it’s my honour.” He held her and rocked her gently. Eric and Greta’s souls intertwind with one another. They were truly in love. Their hearts were beating as one. They were the only ones on the earth that mattered most to eachother.
