How long had it been now? It felt like an eternity. Like the idea of her life was now completely different and alien. What happened in mere months changed her horrid life of miserable repetition forever. Now, here she was, in a different place, with people she kind of new but had the need to protect. She had responsibility, people loved her, and that was amazing, but..
She sighed, “It’s not the same”. Pulling her feet through the covers, they tangled around her body as her knees met her chest. Lowering her chin to her knees, she hugged them to herself. Her blue eyes fluttered closed as she recalled some happier memories. Memories of him..
The continent of Aorwynn had undergone a bunch of changes within a half year. The kingdom of Thiris had decrowned the King, and made Rena their Queen. Her kingdom was quickly destroyed and herself and her remaining people had fled. They fled to the north to their ally Aeria in hopes of a better life. Though they didn’t shatter their hopes immediately, they were not the safe haven they had all hoped for. The elves were not fond with the idea of a permanent residence, but did allow for a temporary one. That was enough to keep her people safe, but ultimately she needed to take care of Edowen to make sure they weren’t going to wander forever. Traversing the lands, she had stumbled into an old mausoleum and discovered the ruins of Milinia, an old kingdom in which she was a direct descendent. It seemed like it was a glorious kingdom filled with magic and wonder, however they met their end to a man named Salem, which was a minion of the Demon Lord of Edowen. This knowledge helped in exposing who Salem was and what happened with Edowen to make them this way. Traveling south towards Edowen was a longer journey but it was all spent with him, so it was worth it. When they had finally made it to Edowen, it was an all out war. It was crazy. They went again an entire kingdom with no one but each other, but they managed to slaughter their way to the demon lords, they were exhausted and ragged, but they traversed on. Never once did he complain about her problems. In fact, he embraced the idea of helping and found strength in her resolve. Clashing heads with the demon lords was a thing of terror and tragedy. It didn’t end the way she had hoped, but it was better than expected.
She let out another sigh. Everything after that was mostly a blur. Picking a new location for a kingdom, the construction of her soon to be kingdom, it was still underway. With things being calmer now, it should have made her happy, but it didn’t. Not really. “I miss you…” she muttered.
They had dealt with hell itself practically and managed to make a kingdom where her people and others could be safe. It was a great accomplishment, but why did it seem so empty without him here? Slowly, she moved off of the bed, letting her legs drag the covers with her before she stood on the cool granite flooring. Currently, she lived in a stone house while the construction of her kingdom continued. Walking over to the arched window frame, she leaned against it and peered out towards the walls. The walls were quite large now, most people were very adamant on getting houses built but she was sure they would feel safer with a full on wall. Their current arrangement was a bunch of wooden huts with wooden towers and spiked barricades, it was pretty lame, but it would work until they had an amazing defense. They wouldn’t be destroyed this time. Turning on her heels, she leaned against the stone wall and stared up at the wooden roof, “Why didn’t you come back with me?” her words were silent, but the pain was very apparent. Her footsteps echoed along the ground as she moved over to a small table, her hands running along its surface as she sighed.
“I remember you like it was yesterday…” her hand moved up through the air, caressing an invisible figure that didn’t exist. Her other hand left the table and grasped the thin fabric between her cleavage. “Oh Abel… I wanted to be yours, you said I was, but you’re not here now.” Her eyes fluttered closed as a soft growl escaped her lips. “I know..” she started a bit hesitant. “That you want me to protect my people, but is it so bad that I’d rather be with you instead?” Her hand traced the invisible jaw of Abel. Her lips shifted into a frown as she stomped her foot the air around her growing dense before water droplets pulled from the air around and shifted before her turning into a larger blob. Her hands moved in front of her, as if pulling strings as the blob slowly began to shift and reshape. One of her eyes shifted red as she continued to pull at the blob as it reshaped with her until finally settling into the shape of Abel. Smiling, she took a step forward and hugged along the blob and sighed. Her hand ran up the side of him as she pressed her face against it’s chest. “It’s not exact..” she muttered and glanced up. “It looks close though…” her arms moved up to wrap around it’s neck as she stared up into what would be it’s eyes. “I wonder what you’d think of me, if you knew I did things like this, to cope with you being gone.” She took another step forward, pressing herself against the water figure. “I wonder if you’d think I was clingy or creepy. It’s just so hard to breathe without you. It’s hard to even want to live without you. Every part of my body cries for you to be around. To feel your hand on mine, to feel your warmth, to hear your deep voice tickling my senses. I miss it all…” she pouted. “I want you back Abel, more than anything. I would give up so much…”
