Cecil was fast asleep in the crook of his arm, completely drained after being roused from bed so early. Supposedly, they were both fishing in the lake, but in reality Kain was the only one holding a rod. It was a good thing that there was a tree at the edge of the embankment, or Cecil would be painfully red by the middle of the day. Kain didn't mind being a pillow, because noise startled fish so it wasn't like they could have talked anyway, and he appreciated the fact that his best friend was willing to drag himself from bed before the sun was up just because the blonde had asked. Cecil was warm and comfortable against him, and this was probably the only time outside of missions that he would ever willingly sleep on the ground. The adopted prince was far too prissy to willingly put up with a commoner's amenities for any reason except for necessity. Or for Kain. Which always earned a smile when the blonde thought about it.
