She smiled and touched his cheek gently. "I love you."
[b "Shame. We would have looked great in red velvet and gold trim,"] he pouts playfully.
She laughed slightly and said. "Just a suit and a formal evening gown."
[b "That doesn't sound so painful,"] he smiled. [b "How dressed up are we talking? Tuxedo and ball gown, or those massive, heavy silk and lace robes from the medieval era? I think we could rock the fifty pound robes."]
"the coronation ceremony and the public address to the citizens." She said and smiled. "We'll have to dress up."
[b "I could get used to a lifetime of hearing you say that,"] he grinned mischievously. [b "I'd lay in bed with you, but I'm afraid of your doctor."]
So, he made do with pulling his chair back up so he can still have contact with her. [b "What's going to be the first order of business when you're discharged from here? I'm worried about you doing too much too soon."]
She smiled softly and pulled him into a kiss. "I love you."
His shoulders sagged. [b "It's going to be a bit before I'm used to being the one people look to for answers. I'm barely allowed to vote on the weekly food menu back at the school. People were asking me questions in the courtyard and i had no idea what to say. I made Erik take over for the time being."]
Ari looked up from her book and smiled at him. "Hey. How was your day?"
With the duty of calming everyone passed to Erik, Alex took a few minutes to duck into a nook in the castle wall, away from prying eyes. [i In and out], he focused on his breathing. It was going to be no use to anyone to get overwhelmed by a panic attack when their future was still on shaky ground.
Much more composed after a few moments, he sought out the queen's chambers where they would be staying. If she was being released in the morning, the least he could do was make sure it was comfy and cozy enough for her to rest in when needed.
When he returned to her hours later, he held a tray of small pastries. [b "Thought you might want something other than soup,"] he smiled.
Ari talked with the red skinned male before he disappeared again and sighed.
Alex was in way over his head.
He'd been stopped nearly every twenty feet to answer the desperate questions of well-wishers who sought updates on their queen. He did his best to soothe their fears, but he couldn't blame them. They faced a war against people who wanted to overrun their country. Ari had been the first leader in recent memory to fight for them.
[i "You needn't looked so panicked, you know,"] Erik drawled from a bench overlooking the courtyard. [i "They only want their queen well again. They fear for her health, not their safety."]
[b "Do me a favour as our newly appointed diplomat and work to alleviate some of their concerns,"] he practically begged. [i "They don't believe me without seeing her for themselves."]
Ari rested and blinked hearing a familiar bamf sound. She looked to her right to see a tall man with red skin and a similar tail to her friend Kurt. "You must be Azazel, what are you doing here?" She said and smiled kindly.
Meanwhile Jean was reading a book on the family history of Ari. "Oh, wow.... Scott look at this."
It wasn't until he was walking the corridor that he remembered he didn't actually know where the hell anything was around here. Given he'd been in the country long enough to go right into war, he'd barely logged the layout of the castle, let alone where he could find a jeweler.
[b "I need help,"] he blurted to Emily as soon as he'd spotted her in the courtyard.
[i "How are you already in a panic on our down-time?"] she raised a pitying eyebrow at him.
Alex thrust the bullet he'd been holding at her. [b "Your mother wants this on a necklace. I don't know where to even look for someone who can do that."]
Emily took the ammunition and examined it. [i "Leave it to me. I'll get it done. In the meantime, have a beer and relax or something. It's our first day off."]
[b "Do not let Scott know about that,"] he warned before they parted ways.
Ari snickered and smiled. "Thanks... I love you, alex."
