I stood there in the light of a single torch for what seemed like forever before I could tare my eyes away from the spot Gregor had stood. I took a step towards the stone, tempted to move it and run after Gregor to- do what? I wasn't sure.
I quickly whipped around and dove intoAurora's wings, trying desperately not to cry. I couldn't afford tears at the moment; tears were distracting and told all creatures, in no uncertain terms, how much Gregor's leaving bothered me.
I will not cry. I will not cry. I will not cry! I thought even as tears started to seep through my eye lids and run down my face in streams.
"It's all right, it'll be alright, you'll see," came a very familiar voice from the shadows. Ripred stepped into the light, walked over to me, and put a paw on my shoulder. "It's not like you'll never see him again." His voice was no longer kind and reassuring, but matter of fact.

Your people need there Queen to have a clear head on her shoulders so stop sniveling and get going!"
I couldn't help smiling as I dried my eyes on my sleeve. "You are right Ripred." I stood up and squared shoulders. "Let us go."
Oh, Gregor, I thought as Aurora flew us back to Regalia, I will not give up without a fight, I am to head strong for that, but remember that I love you and come back to me some day. Just come back...
