Her mother had often told her that Rhysand would cause more trouble than was good for her. Not because of him, but because of what she was willing to do to keep him interested. Cirina was on a constant need for adventure, her life a never ending collection of short stories to tell. The only thing that had been constant, was him. Because he had been there for all of it, being the beginning, the middle and the ending.
It had been a while since he had used a sword. She laughed. “Well, it is never too late to practice,” she told him, though she did not expect any trouble. While he was the Lord and all, they were going to a place she had visited a few times before on her own. It was a beautiful little spot, which no one else seemed to bother visiting. She had always wondered why, but never found out.

For a while, they traveled at their high speed. She calmed her horse down when they were a little over half-way towards where the Skarsgård castle would be. “We’re taking a right at the first path,” she informed him. They would still need to travel for a while, but she didn’t mind. If it had been possible, she would have taken him away from the Highlands, away from everything they knew. An adventure for just the two of them.

ately, after his father had died, they hadn't spoken that much. But they had the kind of friendship where they couldn't talk for months and still meet as if a day had gone by since they had last seen each other. ''Practice against who, you?'' He scoffed with a raised brow, but his tone implied it was a joke.

Truth be told, she would probably beat him in a fight. Rhys was far from healthy, he was tired and it had been a month since last practice. He had grown weak but was too stubborn and proud to show it. The way they were going, he hoped very much that they wouldn't end up at the Skarsgård castle, not after everything that went down. But he trusted Cirina. ''Have we both been to this place before?'' He tried to guess where they were headed, his mind leaving him with a blank canvas as he thought of possible places to camp here.

There was this beautiful place she had found. There was a tiny pond, with the ground barely reaching above it on one side, but being about a meter higher on the other. They could settle on the higher part, looking down on the water. Right next to it was a tiny stream, with water flowing through some rocks, creating the tiniest waterfall before it ended up in the water. When the moon was at its highest and the stars shone in the sky, the pond looked like a dream that had become reality.

No,” she admitted, when Rhysand asked if they had both been there. “I found it when I was out hunting with some customers,” she told him. While her family had been more keen of ravens, doves and the like, she had found a love for the bigger birds, those used for hunting. The customers who enjoyed the hunt, often wanted to try out the birds she sold. And so, she found herself in these forests often enough. “But it’s the prettiest place I’ve found so far,” she assured him. It was nice to move slower again, as she could feel how her horse was getting tired already. They would still need to travel for a bit. She expected the sun to be down by the time they would finish their camp.

eing here, on his horse in the wild wilderness with the wind going through his hair, he finally realized how much he missed this. Being a Lord was one thing, but this, this sudden burst of adrenaline and the fresh air, it did him good. It cleared his head just enough to admire the beauty around him again. And to admire her.

She talked about how she had been there when hunting with customers, a strange thing to say if you didn't know that she sold birds. ''As long as you didn't hunt your customers.'' He joked, giving his horse a pat. She was a fast one, one of the best horses they had in Aeldun. She had survived many winters now and though she wasn't the youngest anymore, Rhysand cared for the animal. He didn't show it, afraid that it might be seen as a weakness but he actually quite liked animals. Maybe he should talk to his sister and see if she was okay with getting a dog. It would at least keep him company during boring paperwork.

''I'm glad we aren't doing this in the winter.'' He spoke as he rustled his coat around him, making sure the furs would keep him warm. He could feel goosebumps on his arms, an effect from his illness probably, but decided to ignore it. Today he would enjoy, tomorrow was something he wasn't going to think of yet.

As soon as they had left the main road, they had to slow down. Here, it was more likely to encounter a bump in the road and she did not want to break a leg of her horse, or have it trip and fall. Then there was the fact that she needed to find their little way in, where they would leave the road and go through the forest itself. By the time they reached it, it had been hours since they had left Aeldun. The road had clearly become less traveled, with branches and holes more frequent.

Here,” she said, slowing her horse down until they finally stood still. “It’s probably best if we go by foot and take them with us,” she told him, getting off her horse and taking the reins in her hand. A smile appeared on her face as she guided her horse off the road, to walk through the trees. Almost there.

t had been hours now. Rhysand thought back to Aeldun, where his sister would probably be furious right now. Maybe she would even send some guards after them, to retreive him. He understood her concern and her worry, but right now he wanted nothing to do with it. The walls had made him feel like he was suffocating, here with Cirina he finally had some breathing room.

The young Lord nodded and got off his horse, grabbing the reins and trustfully following Cirina. ''You are making us go on quite an adventure.'' He noted when looking around. Nothing seemed familiar. ''What gave you the idea?'' He decided to follow up with, walking at a faster pace to catch up with her.

There was no freedom like with him. While she was the one to drag them on an adventure, he was the reason she even considered it. They had always been a perfect team, a fact she did not want to see changed. She cared for him, even though she was well aware that he was a poison. Hurting herself every time she dared to hope, she knew that there was a future waiting for her if she just gave up. But how could she ever?

Cirina met his words with a smile. “Never settle for anything less than amazing,” she told him. She wanted him to look back on their stories, knowing that those of others would never be able to compare. “I missed my friend,” she explained, after a short silence. “So I came up with a trip that you couldn’t possibly say no to.” Again, that wide smile on her face before she looked back in front of her, avoiding some trees on her way as they kept walking. Just a bit more…

he sudden change from wellknown surroundings to absolute wilderness hit him. No longer was he comfortable with a fire behind strong, stone walls. No, they were out here in the snow, breathing in the cold air and feeling how the cold affected their warm bodies. It made him feel alive again.

Rhys looked sideways, staring for a bit at Cirina, admiring her as the sun shone down on her hair. He held back a cough and smiled. ''I've missed you more than I actually realized.'' He admitted, looking at the road before them again. ''It's been quite a mess lately.'' And it probably was a mess he wasn't going to get out of. Ever. All he could do was hope for the best. ''Thank you... again.'' Saying thank you for a random trip was kind of awkward, but Rhy meant it.

Cirina was the one who always smiled. She was the girl with the crazy stories, the one everyone wanted to hang out with. Yet, there had always been a story she didn’t tell. Of the boy she couldn’t let go. There had been so many opportunities for her to find her love in a less hopeless place, yet here she was. Her reasons for taking him here weren’t entirely pure. Every single time, she hoped that he would see what he meant to her. That finally, he would feel the same. But it had always been hopeless, leaving a bitter taste on her tongue.

Of course you did,” she replied with a smile. Of course he missed her. She was excitement, while his current life was everything but. That was all there was to it, which was saddening in a way. Yet it was better than to be forgotten. He thanked her and she laughed in response. “Thank me when we get home safe,” she joked. Of course they would. What could possibly go wrong?

The trees made way for a small pond. She started tying her horse to a tree, nodding to the platform that leaned over the water. It was like a lookout spot, about a meter higher than the rest, but it was completely flat. The perfect place to look out over their horses and the bit of water underneath. “So?” she asked him, nothing but the sound of the wind and the running water to interrupt them now.

he ment more to him than he problably wanted to admit. After years or surviving just with his sister, with no father who wanted to look after them, there was a certain thing that made you look away from the things you craved most. You started to lie to yourself and telling yourself you didn't need them, that you could perfectly handle everything on your own. Well look where that got him.

So he had to thank her for a third time? It would probably end up to be more than that, but Rhys replied with a grin and followed her example to tie his horse to a nearby tree. Turning around to look around, Rhy was astonished by how much beauty there was in this place. He let his eyes wander but ultimately ended up at Cirina again. The smile came back on his face. ''You truly are a gift from the Gods.'' He spoke. He would've passed this place if he was on his own, but Cirina made him stop and look at the beauty around them. ''This is a beautiful spot.'' But not as beautiful as her, Rhys thought.

All her life, she would have to share Rhysand. Never could he be hers, always owned by someone else. From when they were children, it had been his sister. And soon, perhaps, it would be a wife. Someone who he would look up to, whose opinion meant all to him. She was his escape from reality, a momentary happiness that would never be permanent. But it was better than nothing. Even though she was trapping herself in her own personal hell, reaching for something she would never have. In the meantime, she lost out on all that she could have. And still, she wouldn’t change.

After tying their horses to a tree, she started to take the equipment that was attached to her horse. “Isn’t it?” she replied with a smile, when he told her that it was a beautiful spot. “And you remember that, Rhy,” she went on, winking at him as she looked back. Maybe one day, he would see her for what she was truly worth. Or maybe she truly wasn’t worth him. Maybe one day she would find out. For now, however, she shook that thought and carried the stuff to the platform, so they could set up camp there. Time to camp!

verything was suddenly so different. Not only his surroundings had made a big change, his mood definitely had increased and she.. she had changed. It felt like she was so much more than she dared to show. Maybe he should tell her how happy he was to have her in his life, how happy he was to share it with her.

But she would probably jump to conclusions, maybe she would reject him. He didn't want to live with the uncertainty that one day he might lose her. ''It will be hard for me to forget, Ciri.'' He smiled back, helping her with the supplies and then grabbing the ones that were strapped onto his own horse. If he wanted, he could let this spontaneous trip go down in the history books. ''Where do you want it?'' He asked, scanning around. There were too many beautiful spots to choose from. She probably already made up her mind.

When he told her that it would be hard for him to forget, she showed him a smile. Had she not closed her eyes, the reflection of sadness would have showed how she felt about it. She turned around again quickly enough, shaking her head softly. “Good,” she simply replied. Perhaps, one day. For now, he saw her the way the world saw her. She was the ocean. A beautiful surface, with a depth they had not yet discovered. Most people didn’t care enough to even look beneath.

It’s flat up there and gives us the perfect view,” she answered, when he asked where she wanted the stuff. With the bags in her hand, she walked up to the platform. Even with her clumsiness, she managed to climb the few rocks leading up to the platform with ease, dumping the stuff on the floor when she arrived in the middle. Now the camping could begin. They would need to make a fire and place the beds correctly. And then there was the matter of food. While she had brought some breads, it would be nice to hunt something down.

irina always had an eye for things, she saw things very differently from him. Maybe because they had a complete different upbringing, maybe because she saw it with more warmth. Rhysand had never felt that kind of love she had and he wasn't sure if he was capable of feeling it. But whenever he looked at her, there was a certain spark that gave him just a little more hope to hold on. To wish for change.

The man nodded with a smile, grabbing the things from his horse and walking over to the spot Cirina had pointed them to. Looking out over the scenery, it truly was breathtaking. He turned back to her again. ''It feels good, just us again. It has been way too long.'' Being caught up in parental murders and ascending as Lord of your House wasn't exactly good for your social life.

The world was beautiful. This was what her grandmother had taught her. Mind you: the woman was high off her ass when she told her this, but that did not make the words a lie. Rather, Cirina had found that people were most honest when they were drunk. Or maybe that was just her grandmother. The woman had always loved birds, like her entire family did. She said that she would have loved to be able to see the world through the eyes of one. To be able to see every detail about it, like only a bird could. But more than anything, she wanted to get drunk in the body of a bird and fly over someone to shit onto their head. Wonderful woman, truly.

Rhy mentioned that it was good to just be with the two of them. She smiled softly, agreeing yet not. “It has,” she whispered, knowing that there were reasons why they hadn’t been together for a while. Partially because she had hoped her feelings for him would disappear. But they never did. “It’s late. Do you want to try and hunt or shall we just eat the bread and leave the work for tomorrow?” she asked. It was already getting dark. Perhaps they could even fish in the river further down tomorrow.

ith this new life as Lord came a lot more responsibilities. More people who expected you to act a certain way, that you granted them things based on their help in the past or what they had meant for your city. Rhysand was still getting the hang of it all and it tired him out more than he wanted to. Even after these weeks it felt like every day they came up with a new rule, just to mess with him.

But here, that all didn't matter. No one expected him to do something, no one wanted something from him. It certainly made the feeling in his chest a lot lighter. He had never perceived Cirina in that way and he didn't expect her to ever be like that. In his eyes, everything about her was perfect. ''I can set up a trap, so we can have some meat tomorrow.'' He offered, happy to help. It had been too long that he had done such trivial things, everything now seemed to have some sort of importance weighed into it. Here, that all didn't matter.

A smile appeared on her lips when Rhysand said that he could start setting up a trap, so that they would have meat tomorrow. She nodded, knowing that he would do so well enough that she wouldn’t need to check up on him. “That would help,” she agreed. That way, there was no need for them to go out into the dark and they would have plenty of meat tomorrow, if the trap would catch something. She expected it to. After all, both of them did deserve some luck. “I will make sure everything is set up when you’re ready,” she then told him with a grin. There wouldn’t be much to set up, so it would be an easy task.

t would help if he set up a trap. Of course it would help, he was the best. Rhys grinned at her before he nodded in agreement, gathering the items needed for the trap. ''I'll be right back then.'' He smiled, before walking past their horses into a more forested area, trying to find a good spot. It didn't take him long to make the trap, looking at it with some pride before turning back. Surpressing a coughing fit, he quickly found himself in Cirina's company again. ''That trap is going to be a cornucopia.'' Rhys grinned with confidence. Just bread for one night would be alright, at least he had wonderful company to share it with.

A lot of words could be answered with just a smile. Cirina loved to talk. She actually talked a lot. Ever since the day she had learned to, she had blabbered the ears right off every person that would listen. Sometimes even those who didn’t. She believed that this was thanks to her grandmother, though she was told that her mother was the same, a long time ago. In this situation, however, sometimes silence was the answer to what she was looking for. So, when he said that he would be right back, she simply smiled. Because as soon as he turned his back to her, she watched him. Just for a moment, she allowed herself to smile and see him, not the Lord, as he walked away. The friend who held her heart without even knowing.

When he returned, she had set up the simple camp. The two beds consisted of whatever a fucking bed consisted of in their time; simple straws with sheets and pillows, making it as comfortable as it would get, yet easy to take back on their horses. It was set underneath a tree, so they had no need for a tent of some sorts. Instead, they would truly sleep under the night’s sky. A fireplace was already running so they would keep warm, a small fire lighting her face as Rhysand came back to her. He told her about the trap and she grinned. “It better be, or you ain’t getting fed tomorrow,” she winked at him, before she sat down on the bed, holding a piece of bread his way. Easy.

e had gotten quite hungry from their journey and it had been some hours since he had last eaten. So, he gladly took the bread, giving her another smile as he sat down on the bed. ''I don't get to eat? I'm doing all the hard work!'' He joked while giving the bread a taste. Rhys let his eyes wander around, admiring his surroundings until his eyes found her again. He was silent for a moment, not sure what to say until he looked back at the bread in his hand, afraid that the staring might get a little too creepy.
