Arianna found herself in the garden, sitting on the bench. Groaning, she pinched the bridge of her nose, feeling a familiar throb behind her eyes.
"You lasted longer than I thought you would." Conrad was plucking a nice green apple from the tree. It tore off with a snap, the branch springing back into place, rustling the leaves.
Arianna gave a halfhearted reply, taking it as a compliment. "Thanks."
He took a large bite out of his snack, plopping down beside her. His heavy weight caused the bench to jump. She braced the armrest in surprise. "You going to the ceremony?" He didn't bother to notice the jarring impact he caused.
She released her hold on the bench. "I am the princess." She brushed her hands over her gown, knocking off the invisible dust.
"The twins will be there," he said.
"Your brothers?" She smiled. "That's wonderful."
He snorted, taking another bite of his apple. "I'll never hear the end of it."
"Is your whole family coming?"
He shrugged. "I guess."
"Are you not excited?"
He seemed unsure. "I always pictured them as my little brothers." He sighed, staring at the half-eaten apple. "They are becoming more powerful every day."
"Growing up is a part of life."
He tapped his finger beneath his grey iris. "They will be stronger then me soon."
A soft touch upon his knee. "Just because you are half-blooded doesn't make you half of a person."
"If it wasn't for the fact that my father had such strong magic, I don't think I would've been a guard."
"It isn't just your weaving," she said, trying to encourage him. "You're loyal and strong." She paused. "And very good with a sword."
"You've never seen me use a sword."
"No." She glanced away for a second. "But Roland trusted you to protect me. If he has faith in you, I do too."He leaned against the bench, resting both arms on the back of it. "Did anyone ever tell you that you are too honest?"
A sly smirk appeared on her face. "Are you blushing?"
He huffed in disbelief, turning his head away. "Of course not."
She leaned forward, tilting her head more to see him. Her smile widening. "Ah! You are--!" The apple was shoved into her mouth. She gave a muffled cry.
He chuckled. She removed the apple with a puff. "Why are you taking it out? It suited you." He rested his cheek against his knuckles, giving her a handsome smirk.
