So I'm trying to write two characters at a festival. They're fiances and I struggle writing romance, and I just wanted to know if this sounded natural and like a real relationship? Any advice and criticism is appreciated! Thank you!
Miranda nodded giving a small smile. She grabbed onto Helia’s arm, plastering herself across Helia’s side. “I guess that just leaves the two of us.”
Helia smiled looking down at her. “I guess that does. Whatever shall we do?”
“Well, we are at a festival,” She rose to her tiptoes stretching her hand out and quickly booping Helia’s nose. Helia laughed, smiling softly at the gesture. “And if I remember correctly, someone still owes me a dance.”
“Then what are we waiting for?” Helia extended her hand out. Miranda smiled at her, taking Helia’s hand into her own.
“Lead the way.”
It wasn’t difficult to find where the festivities were occurring in Renndal. If the sound of laughter, and music was any indication, then the two of them were close. All they had to do was cut through the marketplace and then they could spend the rest of the night dancing without a care in the world.
“You think they put the festivities over here so they could get more coin off of people?” Miranda asked as they walked.
Helia chuckled, “Oh definitely.”
The marketplace wasn’t anything too special. Helia had seen a dozen just like it. However, each of the wooden stalls had been decorated with Renndal’s banners and various different flowers. Ropes had been strung overhead with lanterns that cast the market in a bluish glow. Various flower petals covered the cobble path and it was clear that someone had spent a long time making the market look this good.
