You and Dmitri are both age 9
“Dmitri?” you asked putting down your daisy chain. “What’s wrong with Tori (Lithuania)? Why is she following Nikolai around all the time?”
Dmitri watched as Tori tried to get Nikolai to put on a daisy chain she made for him. He was currently trying to get her to go away. “I don’t know, but it’s weird.”
You nodded and put your chain on his head, “There all done!”
“Here,” Dmitri said putting his chain on your head.
“Aren’t they just adorable (mom’s name),” said Dmitri’s mom.
Your mom gushed over the two of you, “I think I hear wedding bells in their future.”
You looked at your mother then Dmitri. “What is she talking about?”
“You know at the end of Cinderella when she’s in a white dress?”
Nodding you picked another daisy.
“Well…I think that’s what they’re talking about.”
“So…we get to live happily ever after?” you asked.
Dmitri took your hand, “I think so. Wanna play ball?”
“Sure!” you smiled and got up. “Put your hand here.” You put his hand on your waist and the two of you danced around in the flowers.
“N-Nik! Wait up!”
“Go away Tori!”
The two of you stopped. You looked at Dmitri, “You’re not going to act like Nikolai does to Tori to me are you?”
“Never,” Dmitri said. Then he picked you up and you squealed.
“Dmitri! Put me down!” you laughed.
Dmitri never broke his promise to you. And when you were all grown up the two of you did what Cinderella and Prince Charming did at the end of Cinderella. You wore a white dress and the two of you lived happily ever after.
