Disclaimer: I own nothing.

Nora doesn't have nearly enough fanfics, not nearly enough, and they don't cover enough range of possible scenarios, possible relationships. I have taken it upon myself to fix that. This is just a short thing that needs to be done-because this site definitely needs a DarKain story (Dark LiegexKain). This takes place after the big battle with Fall... I don't think Nora has disappeared yet.

Read and Review!

The Dark Liege sighed.

"What's wrong, your Majesty?" Kain immediately asked. She smiled a little at his attentiveness.

"I was just remembering the past," she said.

Kain approached the Dark Liege. She was staring out the window behind her desk, looking out onto the city that she helped build. She was fingering a bracelet on her wrist, a circlet of black, wrapped twice around her wrist. Kain recognized it, and covered her hand with his own.

"He would be proud of you," Kain said quietly.

The Dark Liege turned to him with a sad smile. "I've made a lot of mistakes over the years," she sighed.

"Nothing that he wouldn't forgive."

"I suppose you're going to tell me to forget him, to move on to the future," she said, gazing out the window again.

Kain looked shocked, then gently chastised the Dark Liege. "I would never tell you that. Deigree was a good man, and a good friend. I miss him too, and I think it would be an insult to his memory to forget about him."

"I miss him too," the Dark Liege whispered.

Kain gently took the Dark Liege's other hand, and she turned to him. He didn't know what to say, but it seemed that, at that moment, there was nothing that needed to be said. They both knew how the other felt, they both knew what the other was thinking.

Kain lifted the Dark Liege's hands and kissed them. "He's not gone until everyone forgets him."

"Thank you," the Dark Liege replied simply, and then they gazed out the window together, holding hands, watching the city that was slowly trying to rebuild itself.

There you go: cute little oneshot. Just needed to be done.

Again, Read and Review please! :)

i encourage others to write fanfics for this too. This place is barren, it needs it.
