"Hey." Ellyn slowly slid the door to a closer and walked closer to the statue in front of her.
"Hey." Isaiah kept his face towards the moving waves that were still apparent long after the sun had fell asleep.
"How are you?"
"I'm surviving." Ellyn could tell by his weak answers that he was nervous through and through. He hadn't said much in the past twenty-four hours but his eyes were screaming for help.
"I'm glad. I'm actually pretty proud of your behavior. No broken items, fits through walls or temper tantrums. Well now that I think about it I'm more surprised than proud."
He smiled. "Yeah, I'm actually pretty proud myself. I have you to thank for that. Your little talk back home kept me in line." Isaiah looked down at Ellyn for the first time. "Wow."
"What?" Ellyn said, blushing instantly.
"You look gorgeous. Red is really your color. Makes your skin glow." Ellyn smiled, she she was still trying to hide her blushing. She didn't know what was up with Isaiah these past few days, but whatever it was making her uneasy.
"I just blame the whole glow thing on the baby. It kind of freaks me out sometimes."
"It shouldn't. It's looks great." His eyes remained on her for a second too long before he returned his eyes back to the crashing waves. He tried to keep them there, but Ellyn's stare drew him back. She stared back into his eyes, trying to mentally cure him of his pain. She knew what all of this was doing to him, and she had seen it first hand. The last thing she wanted see was Isaiah falling apart in her arms once again. It took everything she had not to reach out and pull him into her arms. As much as she wanted to, she knew she couldn't. She almost felt she was here, at this very moment, destined to keep him from falling apart. Kind of like a guardian angel.
"Hey, um, the limo is here." A voice appeared from behind, starling them both. Faven was looked flawless in her long tan dress that hugged every single curve on her body. Her hair was pinned back, some of it still brushing her shoulders, but the hairstyle was perfect because it still allowed her cheekbones and rosy lips to be the center of attention.
"Ok." Ellyn said, turning around to leave the balcony. "You coming Isaiah?" she said, noticing he hadn't moved from the same spot.
"Yeah I'm coming, just give me a sec." He mumbled between a deep sigh.
The women nodded and slid the door close and walked towards the door.
"Oh thank Marry! You all made it! I was beginning to worry you all would be now show!" Zoe slapped her hand around Shirley's neck while the other was busy holding a glass of wine, which came as no surprise to Ellyn.
"No we wouldn't miss this." Shirely said, awkwardly patting Zoe on her bare back. Zoe looked absolutely stunning that night. Her long black locks were pinned up into some type of bun, but a piece of her bang was allowed to swoop in front of her right cheek. Her russet skin was radiating with life underneath her purple dress, which just added to her beauty.
"Well what do we now?" Faven asked.
"Well right now, you can dance, drink," she raised her glass as and example, " and just mingle around until they get everything started in about ten minutes! Everyone knows who you all are so don't e shy!" they do? "Just have fun and enjoy you self!
Oh, and Mr. Isaiah?" Zoe suddenly shifted her attention to the statue standing closely behind Ellyn.
"Would you care to dance?" She gave him a grin that indicated that the dance would mean more to her than just some friendly gesture. Everyone turned their attention to Isaiah, awaiting his unsure answer.
"Uh, um, sure?" He said, stumbling over his answer. Suddenly, Zoe whisked him off into the direction of the other dancing couples
"May Marry be with him." Gabriel whispered. Ellyn chuckled and nudged his shoulder. He looked down at her and smiled his self. "Care to join them?" He signed to her. Ellyn just simply nodded.
Just as they walk on the dance floor a soft, yet jazzy number begins. More couples join them while the singles remained on the side staring in envy.
The music finally came to an end and the couple on the dance floor clapped in approval of the bands performance. A man, dressed in back suit ran onto stage and stood in front of the microphone. The audience went absolutely crazy. Women were yelping and men where whistling in approval. Obviously he was some celebrity over here in Barcelona that none of the family knew of. In order to not look out of place, Ellyn and the rest of them joined the applause.
