"You've got to be quiet to witness it," The townsperson whispered, jabbing a fleshy finger towards the edge of the city. The sun was starting to disappear around the tips of the heavy trees, finally sinking towards the busy horizon.
"Witness what?" She hissed, sending an evil glare at the old man. She didn't want to be mean, but the girl had to get out of the city by sunrise, and this man was not helping her lack of patience.
"The... The matchmaker," He whispered, eyes widened in fear.
"There's no such thing, you just said so..." She said, tilting her head and scrunching up her eyebrows in skepticality.
"Just wait, little girl," He said, throwing a scowl towards her direction. 'Little girl? Oh, no. Who the heck does he think he's talking to?!' She raged, her right hand curling into a fist. Even though she had taken two years of karate, the information had gone from one ear straight to the other. Leaving her with lack of physical defense skills, which was very dangerous for a female thief like herself. The difference was, she was a girl. And girls are, well, usually light on their feet. She squinted, seeing the outline of a wallet jutting out of the townsperson's jeans.
"When?" She frowned, slowly inching towards her target. She basically sailed backwards when the old man tottered back, slapping her shoulder for good effect.
"H-he is h-here," He stuttered, and turned around and sprinted towards the exit. It was amazing that a man of his stature could even manage running, albeit being in decent health. Sighing, she pushed away the defeat that she could've stolen the old man's wallet before he ran for it. Pushing her way through the foliage, she approached it. The giant magnolia tree that spiritually guarded the city lights. Perched on the utmost branch was a guy so stunningly attractive, she thought her eyes would burst.
"Guh," She stammered, then slapped a hand over her mouth while silently cursing. "Who's there?" A voice asked, its melody carrying like tranquil waves in a pond when disrupted by a pebble.
"Umm, me," The girl said, then realized how idiotic that must've sounded. Apparently the guy realized too, because it got a decent chuckle out of him.
"Yes, I do realize that much," He said softly, leaping off of his branch to face the girl. The moon barely lit up his face, his lean figure towering over petite girl
"I guess.. so," She said, completely at a loss for words. 'Is he the true matchmaker?!' She wondered, exploring his figure with her wandering gaze.
"Stop it." He said, shooting a dirty look her way.
"Stop what? Looking? You can't prevent me from seeing things," She pouted, sticking out her tongue a bit at him.
"I bet I can," He said, and she heard a slight 'swooshing' sound and her vision was gone. Black and fuzzy, then she realized his hand was covering her eyes. His breath was soft near her earlobe, and it sent warm tingles down her spine. 'Electricity...' She thought, slightly blushing.
The girl slowly swiveled around, still met with blackness, but she smelled his scent very close by. "Are you... the matchmaker?" She said, her voice dropping to a whisper on the last word. This caused the so-called 'matchmaker' to snicker, and released his grip from her eyes.
"Yes I am, how may I be helpful?" He asked, the twinkle in his eyes certainly adding to his handsome qualities.
"Can you tell me... How my future will turn out?" She asked tentatively, reaching a palm for the 'matchmaker' to sense her fortune.
"Oh but I do not need your palm! I just need to look into your eyes," He reassured, fixing his gaze onto her eyes, wide with shock. 'How...' She wondered, blinking rapidly a couple of times.
"It's a good future," He started, clearing his throat, "You'll end up with the person who you think you will never end up with. He'll grow to like you back, despite his ... hope to be reunited with... certain others." The boy read, his eyebrows creasing at the last few words.
"Well, I won't be forever alone!" She said jokingly, but the 'matchmaker' shot her a warning glance.
"We, us, a matchmaker and a human. We are destined to be together..." He murmured, barely within her earshot.
