Hello everyone! So this is my first fanfiction EVER! I am so excited! Anyway, this is a songfic for the song Love Story by Taylor Swift. I did not add the lyrics (and I won't be in the future) because I didn't want my story to get removed. Please sit back and enjoy the show! (Well, story actually...)

Disclaimer: I do not own RA (it belongs to John Flanagan) nor do I own Love Story (which belongs to Taylor Swift)

I was standing in a meadow on the outskirts of Wensley village. It was a cool spring day, so beautiful, so peaceful. I was thinking of my husband. I closed my eyes and the flashback started:

We were both young, just a year into our apprenticeship, and I was at the Baron's wifes birthday ball. I was standing on the balcony, feeling the summer air. I looked back to the room and I saw a handsome young man with jet black hair coming my way. When he reached me he said, "Hello. Would you like to dance?"

So we danced. We were fast but graceful.

Little did I know...
That he was Halt, he was a ranger, my daddy didn't like Rangers so he interrupted our dancing and said, "Stay away from Pauline."

He left the room and went down an empty staircase. I followed him, and stood on the staircase saying, "Please don't go."

Halt hesitated, than turned around and said, "Meet me at the garden tomorrow night. Please."

The night afterward I snuck to the garden outside of the castle to see him. We kept quiet, which was easy for Halt, because we would be dead if they found out. So we walked in the garden, talking and laughing, well I laughed, Halt just smiled.

Every full moon we would sneak out and see each other. Even after I became a diplomat and he became a fully fledged ranger we still saw each other. Than he started to go on missions and wasn't able to come, I was starting to lose hope that he ever would, but I still went.

One full moon I went to the outskirts of town and was thinking of Halt. Than I saw him, he was coming my way. I ran to meet him and when I was up to him I hugged him. When I let go I said, "Halt, I've been feeling so alone. I keep going to the garden to see you but you never come. I-"

I stopped when Halt knelt to the ground and pulled out a ring from his pocket and said, "Marry me, Pauline, and you will never be alone ever again. I love you and it seems that that's the only thing that I really know. Please, Pauline. It's a love story, baby, just say, 'yes'."

The flashback ended when I felt Halt put his arm around me. "I was just thinking of when we first met. You remember?" I asked him.
He kissed my forehead and said, "We were both young when I first saw you."

So...how did that work? Shorter than I had hoped but that's my style! Please review! It would mean a lot! :)
