AN: A very short story for those few Okage fans out there. Disclaimer: I don't own Okage the Shadow King, if I did there would be a sequel.
REVISED! I went through my story and made some corrections! Also I might've added an extra line or two, but the biggest change I made is at the very end!
I mostly edited the story and made the words flow better. So, the storyline wasn't changed much.
They were fighting, again.
Though it was no surprise nor something new for the Evil King and hero to be fighting. The only thing that seemed to change about the fights were the topics. It was probably about how Stan was being too cruel again or Rosalyn was nagging too much. I would say normal couple stuff but these two were far from normal.
It wasn't much of a surprise(well to me anyways) when the two announced that they were in a relationship; actually they didn't announce it. A while back during one of our annual reunion parties, Linda, the former Teen idol evil king, asked and Rosalyn confirmed. I knew a long time before that though. I walked in on them in a compromising position once; both on the ground with Rosalyn straddling Stan's lap.
Rosalyn hastily explained that nothing 'funny' was going on. Rosalyn was following Stan trying to get him to change her shadow back and she tripped. Unfortunately she brought the Evil King down with her. Of course that was true but that event did somehow get the two to start realizing that maybe they didn't hate each other as much as they originally thought.
It started out as a simple fling and nothing more.
They would play the part of mortal enemies during the day but at night...well, I really don't want to think about that. The point is that Stan and Rosalyn didn't mean for it to develop into anything, but eventually it did.
They're not married just in case if you were wondering. Personally I think it's better that way and they seem to think so too. Really? An Evil King and Great Hero married? or even in a relationship? It was almost taboo. I say 'almost' because if something was considered taboo, that meant it was something that was practically forbidden to talk about. When word got out that Rosalyn and Stan had 'friendly relationship', it was the public's favorite subject to gossip about.
It didn't make any sense to other people. To our strange group however, Stan and Rosalyn in a relationship made sense...well, in it's own way.
But you know what they say; opposites attract, and those two were definately opposites. Although, in my opinion they were just as much the same as they were different. They were both the most stubborn, hot tempered, and argumentative people I have ever met! But despite their flaws, Stan and Rosalyn were also the most determined, the strongest, the most powerful, and the bravest people I have ever had the privilege of knowing.
I wouldn't admit that out loud though, or at least not to Stan. His ego was already big enough. Anyways, I'm getting off topic.
The fighting never stopped and neither did the insults. Stan still made fun of Rosalyn's weight and Rosalyn still called Stan a fake evil king. Although now that they know each other more personally, the insults sometimes become a little too colorful. For example, Rosalyn would suggest things about a certain part of the male anatomy about Stan. Fortunately for me, neither of them have said anything that would truly scar me for life. Not yet at least.
If anything the fights have gotten worst. Sometimes they would result in Stan leaving a very upset Rosalyn, but towards the end of the day Stan would do something to make things right. When Stan actually did do something nice it reminded Rosalyn and I that he cared about someone other than himself. Getting him to admit it is a completely different matter though.
It was a mystery of what brought them together. It was an even bigger mystery of what keeps them in the relationship. (There once was a bet going around our strange company to see how long the two would last, but after awhile everybody pretty much forgot about it. However that's another story for another day)
Since I had to deal with the two since day one, I had a few theories. My first theory was that they simply couldn't be without each other for long. The Evil King and Hero have broken up more times then I've had birthdays but the break ups wouldn't last very long. During those times Stan would be moodier than usual and Rosalyn would just walk around as if in a trance. Although those results would be from at least a week broken up.
They couldn't live with each other and they couldn't live without each other.
The other reason they stayed together was probably because of their son and daughter, the twins.
AN: Let me know what you think. I've recently been playing my old playstation and I came across Okage. After playing a little of it again I decided to go back to my story and revise it. Since I have grown as a writer I wanted to fix up all my old stories.
I hope you guys like the changes I've made, especially the change where I gave Rosalyn and Stan a pair of twins! Chapter one and two won't be changed much but I will probably have to completely re-due chapter three since the twins make their first appearences in that one.
