It has been two months since Lucy, Edmund and Eustace have left. Since then, Caspian has spent his time with the half-star, Lilliandil. They met during Caspian's voyage on the Dawn Treader to find the seven lords his uncle, Miraz, have banished. During their short stay on her father's island, he somehow fell in love with her, and she with him.
They walked hand-in-hand in the gardens of the Telemarine Castle. They were there, talking the entire afternoon. Then, around three Caspian decided to take Lilliandil to the restored Cair Paravel. She gladly accepted and together, they went to the stables and rode off. By the time they reached Cair Paravel, it was close to sunset. They stood at a balcony, watching the sky turn orange.
"Caspian?" Lilliandil asked.
"Yes, my love?"
"When we first met, what did you think of me?"
Caspian smiled and held her close. "I thought of you as a beautiful and kind woman. A woman that was thoughtful about things, yet held a warm and gentle heart."
Lilliandil looked up at him, smiling softly. "You really thought that about me?"
"I still do."
Caspian leaned in and kissed her. She responded and cupped his face, as he had a hand at the small of her back. But as soon as the kiss had started, it ended. They both looked towards the horizon, seeing a sky that was already red-orange.
"Go on. I'll follow you." he told her. She nodded and left. Caspian watched as she mounted her horse and rode back to his castle.
There was something that he didn't like about Lilliandil. Actually, there were many things. He hated the way her eyes were blue. He hated the fact that her lips were full. But what he hated the most was that she was gentle. Yet, these personalities were reasons why he loved her.
But Caspian hated this for one reason and one reason only. And that reason was Queen Susan. Lilliandil and Susan had many things in common, and that's what he hated. He thought of Susan a lot when Lilliandil was around.
"That one kiss. Just ONE kiss." he thought. He watched as the waves flowed back and forth, and how the sky had splashes of purple. His memories of the Pevensies were coming back to him, as if their flowing back into his mind. Yet all of the memories all focused on Susan. He looked at the low setting sun, suddenly remembering what his Professor had told him: To the radiant Southern Sun, I give you Queen Susan, the Gentle.
Everything reminded him of her. Even the simplest of things. Like the waves of the Eastern Sea. "Her hair was in many beautiful waves." he thought. He deeply sighed, wishing that one day, he would see the Gentle Queen again.
It was nightfall as he entered the Telemarine Castle. Instead of eating with his love and his close friends, he asked for his food to be brought to his room. And for the rest of the night, he didn't leave his room, wanting privacy. For he will never see the Pevensies again.
