The Kingdom of Avenge was never one to think they would be on the top of the food chain. But with the past rulers doing the right things, and the current leaders being loved by their citizens, it gained popularity. What started out as a small town and kingdom, became one of the biggest, most prosperous kingdoms in all of the marvelous land. In a far off land, but not too far from the other kingdoms, lived the royal family; The Starks. Their kingdom grew and grew, and drew in more money every day. Led by King Anthony Stark and Queen Pepper, with their daughter, you, the kingdom continued to live in prosperity. People and followers loved living there, happy they lived in the land of the Avenge Kingdom. The economy was better than any kingdom could dream of, and the crime was usually taken care of by the kingdom’s most trusted guards. You and your family were living well.
You had servants and were raised to be the proper princess everyone expected you to be, thanks to your mother and father. You were awoken by your servant you had around nearly all the time, Zoe, and she helped you prepare for the day. You and Zoe are the same age, making it easy for the two of you to be close. She lays out your outfits, runs your baths, and helps you with anything you need help with. Lucky you both got along, or else you would be stuck talking to the chef all day, so at least Zoe was a friend your own age. Of course, you do love the chef, Connor. He’s a little older than you and Zoe, but he’s very likable and fun to talk to- so you don’t mind staying in the kitchen with him and his staff.
You had to admit; you were very lucky with all the things you have. A wealthy kingdom, a happy family, servants who love their jobs, and citizens who do their work and love where they live. Your life is one of the easier ones when you attend your classes taught by private tutors, and listen to your mother and father whenever they speak. The entire kingdom knows that you will make for a great queen one day.
Our introduction to Tobermory wreck diving started with the classic Sweepstakes wreck.
The Sweepstakes was a two-masted 119-foot schooner built in Burlington, Ontario, Canada in 1867. It suffered serious damage off Cove Island, not far from Tobermory, in 1885, and was towed into Big Tub Harbour in Tobermory. Unable to repair it in time, it sank in the harbour where it can be visited today. Given the shallow depth of 20 feet, it makes for an easy dive, and is also visited by snorkelers and tourists aboard glass-bottom boats.
Summary: After the underwater kiss shared between the two, they struggle to communicate their feelings to one another.
As I rubbed my eyes from last night’s sleep, I glanced around the room hoping to find someone. However, once my gaze falls upon the vacant room I quickly come to realize the bliss I felt falling asleep in his arms was only a dream.
Finding no reason to sulk, I hop out of bed and ready myself for the adventures La Huerta had awaiting me. I leave my spacious room and navigate through the hotel, almost completely adjusted to my home away from home. I reach the lobby swiftly and catch glances of a few of my classmates. Raj, Michelle, and Craig all lounged around on the small sofas and I was tempted to join them. Yet, I found myself being pulled towards the pool area in hopes to find him.
My tennis shoes seem to echo on the tiled floor of the Celestial’s lobby until I finally reach the door to the resort’s luxury pool. Upon stepping outside, my eyes immediately fall on the rugged pilot. His arms are propped behind his head, feet crossed over one another as he lounges in the hammock. I find a small grin playing at my lips as I admire him.
I close the distance between us and stand to the side of the hammock, my hands on my hips. “Room for one more, Top Gun?” My voice questions, causing Jake’s eyes to open. He immediately smirks at my proposition and attempts to scoot over, making room for me. I carefully maneuver my limbs into the netted cocoon, causing the hammock to shift at my weight.
At first, we remain distant from one another. He folds his arms across his chest almost as if he was shielding himself from me and I was inclined to do the same. After a few more moments, we both seem to relax. My body shifts towards his, my head coming to rest on his chest. Jake uncrosses his arms and wraps one around my waist, his thumbs lightly tracing random patterns across my skin.
“Princess,” He suddenly states, causing me to adjust my head to look towards him. “I was wondering, how much do you remember about our boat wrecking that other day?” My heart beat seems to quicken at his words. He couldn’t be referring to the kiss, was he?
My mind seems to race before I can string together a response. “I remember feeling weightless, then hitting the water hard. All I remember after that was washing up on shore, why do you ask?” I didn’t want to admit to my feelings, I couldn’t find the courage. As I responded, his face seemed to fall at my words. It seemed like he wanted me to remember the kiss, or maybe I was just making it all up because I have feelings for him.
“Well, I would have hoped you remembered this,” Jake answers. He lifts my chin and gently presses his lips to mine. I don’t hesitate to kiss him back, wanting to savor every moment of it before it ends. Our lips seemed to move perfectly in sync, the kiss quickly becoming more desperate, more passionate. Jake’s hands find my waist as he positions my body atop of his, allowing him to have greater access to my mouth. His hands endlessly roam my body, touching and squeezing every curve and every valley.
After a few more moments, I pull away, my eyes locked on his. His bright blue eyes seemed to have darken after our heated kiss, and I can’t help but smirk. “I did remember, trust me. I just didn’t want to bring it up if the feelings weren’t mutual,” My eyes quickly shift from his, not wanting to admit my insecurities to him. He immediately pulls my chin towards him, forcing our eyes to meet once again.
“Trust me princess, the feelings are mutual,” He confirms, causing me to peck his lips once again.
“Just friends, my ass!” A voice suddenly exclaims, causing our gazes to shift towards Diego. I feel my cheeks redden as Jake bursts into laughter. I bury my head into his chest, hoping to escape the conversation.
His hands smooth over my hair as he yells in response, “Thanks for ruining the moment! Now, if you don’t mind I’d like to continue making out with your best friend,” I chuckle into his chest and lift my head, checking to see if Diego had left us alone once again. “Now, where were we?”
