"I would prefer to keep my feet on the ground, thank you."

Evidently, she doesn't say, you have a whole garden full of trees and you don't know that climbing is easier barefoot, it's depressing.

"Well, then, my lord, I think you have to stop feeling guilty about it."

Permalink

"Well, if I must."

Permalink

She giggles, cuddles up to him.

"...are we keeping people waiting? I didn't mean to..."

Permalink

"–oh, no, not at all. You're more functional than one expects at this point, really."

Permalink

"I'm sure it'll hit me later, my lord."

Permalink

"Yes, more likely than not."

He kisses her on the forehead.

"You'll have time."

Permalink

"Yes, my lord. All the time in the world."

"I wouldn't go quite that far. Dhayos will get very impatient after a year or two."

Dhayos wants to do things with her.

"Yes, my lord."

Aton has sat down quietly next to them.

Permalink

 

 

She reaches out a hand to him, tentatively.

Permalink

...he takes it.

Permalink

He turns his face away, hides it a little in his shoulder, takes a careful breath.

Permalink

She squeezes his hand.

"Thank you. For watching over me."

Permalink

 

He actually pulls her bodily out of Elantine's lap to bury his face in her neck.

His breath shakes and his shoulders tremble.

Permalink

He lays his hand on Aton's back, stroking it gently.

Permalink

She wraps her arms around his neck.

...oh. This is what she's supposed to do with that.

(She's scared -- she feels presumptuous -- but it doesn't really matter, does it?)

"Love you."

Permalink

 

Now he's just sobbing into her neck.

 

"–love you. Love you."

Permalink

 

She strokes his hair.

"Harder for you than me, I think."

Permalink

He tenses up, a little.

"You were the one who – thought you were alone."

Permalink

"But I wasn't. Not ever."

Permalink

He nods.

"Always had one of me watching you. Always."
