"I've got a surprise for you. Just close your eyes." Lux felt a warm, gentle, and delicate hand smoothly slide over her eyes.

"Ezreal, why do I have to close my eyes AND have your hand over them? It's not like I'm going to peek!" Lux half-giggled at the romanticism of it all, but she was still really curious as to what the surprise was.

Even without looking at him, Lux could tell he was grinning from the tone of his voice. "You'll see. I'll lead you and then I'll tell you when you can open your eyes. Plus, you're the 'Lady of Luminosity' known for her light tricks, so you could sneak a glance using your rainbow powers or something." His perfectly deep but not too deep voice laughed as his other hand grasped Lux's firmly. Ezreal started to lead Lux, step by step, through some terrain, and then Lux felt the familiar light sensation of Ezreal's Arcane Shifting.

With her eyes closed, she couldn't really use her light powers, leaving her in her most vulnerable state. Even though Lux didn't like to feel vulnerable, her returned feelings for Ezreal assured that she would trust him with anything, even the fate of the entire world. He could be leading Lux through the Void, and she would still trust him to get them both out, unscathed.

Ezreal's mellow but masculine voice eased its way through Lux's thoughts. "We're here. Ready to have your eyes dazzled?" They suddenly stopped, and Ezreal lifted his hand from on top of Lux's eyes.

Lux gasped when she lay eyes on the beautiful sight that Ezreal had led her to. A crystalline, frozen waterfall gleamed in the winter sunlight, giving off little sparks of like that reminded Lux of little stars, filling the air with energy. At the foot of that waterfall was a perfectly preserved patch of spring green grass with a picnic blanket spread over it. A couple of little sparrows flew through the air near the picnic basket, giving the entire place a springtime look in the middle of an icy, harsh winter. The entire scene was located in a clearing in an untouched, snowy forest, giving everything a surreal, wonderland-like look.

"Ezreal… it's… beautiful! How did you find this?" Lux exclaimed.

Ezreal grinned. "Well, they don't call me the prodigal explorer for nothing. I found it while exploring the Frejilord and thought, 'I have to show Lux this,' and here you are. Have a seat."

He smiled warmly at her before sitting down, patting the spot next to him. That kind gesture seemed to melt away the frosty air as Lux grinned and plopped down next to him on the blanket patterned with the night sky.

Lissandra peeked over the top of her massive, crystalized creation. She had found an icy waterfall with a small river leading up to it, and wanted to preserve it in her all-consuming power. So she started from a miniscule crystal of ice within the water, and spread the frost outwards towards the edges, successfully preserving the natural beauty of the ice within everything. But something out of the ordinary was out there today. A pair of bright, young champions sitting on a picnic blanket at the base of her sculpture caught her eye.

"Hmm… They're cute together. This should be… interesting." She murmured.

Lissandra setted down at the top of her waterfall and watched the couple's picnic together. Something stirred inside her cold, dark, frozen chest. An emptiness that threatened to consume her whole had unearthed itself, starting to grow in spite of her unfeeling ways. Something… that made her realize just how alone she was.

Ezreal and Lux sat there for a while, munching on the sandwiches that were in the basket Ezreal had so carefully prepared. They sat together in silence, enjoying each other's presence in the beauty of the landscape. The golden duo's glimmering power illuminated the crystallized waterfall, sending little rays of sparkling light shining into the frozen woods and over the spring green blades of grass in the small patch of meadow they were sitting on. Lux stopped eating for a moment, looking up to inspect the waterfall more closely. There must have been some sort of crystal structure for the pair's light to be able to reflect like that.

"Woah, there's a weird pattern over here in the ice!" Lux cried. She started walking towards it to look at it closer. Ezreal got up from the blanket to examine the mark as well. Lissandra, still watching from the top, took in a sharp breath. All of her ice creations, no matter how big or small, had the same marking on it. Lux, having played Lissandra often in the Mid Lane in Summoner's Rift, would definitely recognize that mark, given some time.

As Lissandra leaned over precariously, worried that they would discover that she was here, she didn't notice one of her Ice Shards slipping from her dress folds and falling towards the young couple until it was too late to grab it.

Ezreal's explorer instincts suddenly told him to look up, and he did so, spotting the javelin of ice hurtling through the sky, heading straight for Lux.

"NO!" He screamed, Arcane Shifting and just barely blocking the icicle with his gloved hand. Ezreal hugged Lux close to him, breathing unevenly, as Lux stared at Ezreal's glove in shock.

Lux shook off her shock after a few initial moments of realizing how close she was to getting hit by that shard, and looked questioningly in awe at her boyfriend.

"How did you—Where did that—Why am I—" Lux was still in so much shock that the few words that she could utter were just fragments, far from being a full sentence. Her pupils constricted back to their normal size, and she took a deep breath.

"Shhh… you're okay now…" Ezreal crooned, as if comforting himself as well. Lux looked back at Ezreal's gauntlet, still in the position in which had Ezreal had saved her life by blocking the icicle, and noticed a slight but possibly devastating change in what she usually saw.

"E-Ezreal…" She stammered. "Your stone… It's cracked!"

He glanced over at his glove, surprised. A small rift had opened up in his crystal blue power gem. His brow furrowed. "That shouldn't have happened… It's not that fragile. But it's just a small crack. It should be fine." Ezreal worriedly glanced back up at the waterfall. "We'd better get out of here before one of us gets seriously hurt."
