It was a lovely night in the land of Aaa...
Fionna was sleeping soundly in her bed. She was dreaming of lovely things when all of a sudden, she heard a knock. She woke up, yawned, and rubbed her eyes. She saw a dark silhouette outside her window. She looked closely, it was Marshall Lee. He didn’t look very happy, as a matter of fact he was crying, which was a rare sight. Fionna opened her window.
“Marshall are you alright?” she asked. “What’s wrong?”
He couldn’t say anything, he just held onto Fionna and cried gently into her shoulder. Fionna didn’t know what was the matter, but figured that it wasn’t the time for questions, just comfort. So, she held Marshall and lightly stroked his head.
This continued throughout most of the night until Marshall fell asleep. Fionna decided to let Marshall lay in her bed (or at least levitate over it.) And she slept by his side.
It was early in the morning when Marshall Lee woke up, right before sunrise, the perfect time to go. He looked to his side, he saw Fionna sleeping. She looked beautiful, her long, golden hair flowing down her shoulders, her eyes gently closed. Marshall Lee truly thought that she was perfection. He decide to leave her a note, to invite her over and thank her for her kindness and compassion. When he was done writing his message, he went to go look at Fionna one last time before he left. He gently kneeled beside her, and kissed her forehead and whispered, “ Thank you, Fionna”
Fionna later awoke to discovered that Marshall had left. She saw a piece of paper on her nightstand and read it silently.
I would like to thank you for the kindness and love you showed me last night. I appreciate your comfort and compassion very much. I’d also like to invite you over to my house. If you can come, please show up at 2:00pm.
- Marshall Lee
P.S. Dress nice.
Fionna smiled at the note and then wondered to herself what Marshall meant by. “Dress nice.”
She later went to go talk to Cake about the note and the events that had occurred last night. When Fionna had finished the story, Cake clapped excitedly. “What is it Cake?” Fionna asked. “Oh baby, Marshall Lee wants to so take you out on a date.”
Fionna spit out her juice. “A DATE?!?!”
