Talk with a his Lycian for first time
It hit me like a ton of bricks. The tears were flowing out of my eyes and I crumpled to the floor. Robert was by my side in seconds rubbing my back and whispering calming words. How could I have been so stupid? Robert picked me up and set me in his lap as he slowly rocked us. I leaned closer into his chest. “How can you be so nice to me?“He stopped rocking us and lifted my chin so I was looking at him. “What do you mean, love? I could never be mean to you "
I shook my head and stood up, walking around the room as I spoke, “No. You shouldn’t be so nice to me. I was wrong! I’m a horrible mate! I didn’t even give you the chance to explain yourself! I just jumped to the conclusion that you were a horrible man who killed people for practically for no reason when in reality you had reason to kill him! Well maybe not kill him.... killing people is really harsh... I mean there was probably a better way to punish the man other than killing him.... but considering you are a king and you have a short temper, of course, you would kill him... He killed innocent people for no reason and left a baby all alone without a family! What makes him deserve to live?.... Anyways my point is! You did have a reason and I didn’t give you the chance to explain yourself so I just hated you for several days when I shouldn’t have. You did nothing wrong!”
Robert grabbed my shoulders, stopping my rant and pacing. I had said so much already and still had more to say but when I looked into his eyes my mind went blank. I didn’t know what to say or do. He reached up and wiped the stray tears from my cheeks.
His face held a slight smirk, “wow you talk a lot.” I rolled my eyes and moved out of his grasp. “Not trying to be mean or anything but when you get going you just keep going. I was worried you weren’t going to stop.” I glared at him which only caused him to laugh.
"You know what, you aren’t nice!” I turned to walk out of his office but was stopped as Robert grabbed my arm. “Oh come on you know I was joking love,” he said bringing me in for a hug. I didn’t want to hug him back because I was mad at him but I couldn’t help but give in.
We stood there holding each other for I don’t know how long, nor did I care. I felt comfortable in his arms but my relaxed body tensed up as a thought entered in my mind. Robert must have noticed because he pulled back and looked at me suspiciously. “I just remembered something...” My mind trailed off deep into thought for a minute before I was brought back to reality. “What about your Lycian?
His face fell as he looked to the floor. “I don’t know Alisha. I don’t know what to do, I’ve tried reaching out to him several times but he won't respond to me. I can’t feel him anymore like he’s not there at all....”
Again I was mad at myself. I had left him and his Lycian breaking them and now his Lycian is gone... It’s all my fault. There has to be some way to bring him back. He has to know I’m still here... An idea popped into my head so I grabbed Robert’s hand and pulled him out of the office. He kept asking me where we were going and what we were doing but I ignored him and kept walking through the house and outside.
After a while, Robert realized I wasn’t going to tell him so he just followed close behind as I headed deeper into the woods. Once we reached a large open spot surrounded by trees I stopped and turned to Robert. “What is your Lycians name?” Robert looked at me strangely before sighing “Leo. Why?”
" I have a plan to try and get him back.” Robert curiously looked at me, waiting for me to continue. “Okay, you are going to try to reach him and I’m going to talk to him. He left when I left so he needs to know that I’m back and that everyone here needs him.”
“I don’t know Alisha. We can try this but don’t get your hopes up too much because this might not work.”
" I understand that but we have to at least try. Please?” Robert nodded his head and closed his eyes. I knew he was concentrating hard because of the crease on his forehead. I took a deep breath and held both of his hands. “Leo? I don’t know if you can hear me but if you can I need you to come back. I’m sorry that I hurt you when I left and I know you blame yourself but you shouldn’t. You didn’t do anything wrong and I know that that’s why I’m here.
You are so important to everyone here and we need you to come back to us. The kingdom needs you... Robert needs you... I need you....” suddenly Robert’s eyes opened but they weren’t their normal blue, instead they were glowing yellow. I was taken back but remained still. Yellow eyes? So is this Leo? I really should know more about Lycian stuff! His yellow eyes trailed over my body from my feet up to our hands enclosed together.
He gave my hands a small squeeze as his eyes moved up until they met mine. His upper lip curled up showing his large canines as he let out a low growl. I felt the smile growing on my face knowing it worked. He quickly grabbed my waist and pulled me to his chest holding me tight as if he were afraid I would disappear. I wrapped my arms around him and rested my head on his chest. “Robert I’m not going anywhere okay?
I was stupid for leaving before and it won’t happen again. I’m new to this whole werewolf and lycian and mate thing so it is going to take some time getting used to it but I’m here and I’m willing to give us a try....” He let out another growl before his body relaxed, loosening his grip on me.
He kissed the top of my head causing me to pull back and look up at him. I was met with those blue eyes I adore so much. Robert rested his forehead against mine, his smile was bigger than I had ever seen. “You mean it? You’ll give us a chance?” I could hear the hope and excitement in his voice as he spoke.
"Yes” was all it took for Robert to lift me off my feet spinning us around. I wrapped my arms around his neck and laughed. I felt my feet hit the ground as he leaned in whispering “I finally have my girl” before pressing his lips against mine.
