The two slipped away together, to places unknown.

Interlude end

'You mean today?' Cam asked tentatively. 'You want me to meet her today?'

'As soon as possible' Luke replied. 'Yes today' he added, when Cam gave him an uncertain stare.

It was the day after Cam had been given his new teeth, and he was still recovering from the injuries that put him in that room in the first place.

'B-but…' Cam stammered, 'but…isn't it too soon?'

'You know how things are' Luke replied sternly. 'Must I explain it to you again?'

'You must' Cam answered flatly.

Luke let out a sigh, crossing his arms and leaning back in his seat.

'In short, the sooner you marry and have children, the sooner you will bring stability to the kingdom and…'

'And?' Cam repeated.

'And…' Luke finished. 'The damage done to the kingdom can be repaired. The damage you've allowed to happen.'

Cam turned away.

'When will she be coming here?' he asked reluctantly.

'Soon' Luke told him. 'Mother said she will bring her about eleven o'clock…which is in a few minutes.'

'Only a few minutes?'

Luke cocked his head at him.

'Are you nervous?'

'Of course I am' Cam snapped back, unable to control himself. 'What the hell am I supposed to say to her? I've never met her before and I'm supposed to marry her? She's just a child…'

'I know it's not easy but…' Luke paused in thought. 'I don't know exactly what's been going on, but I know you've been…' he broke off suddenly, as if unsure of how to proceed. 'You could be safer with a wife by your side' he finished. 'It could…help you to become stronger also…to have something to protect…'

'I'm not so sure' Cam spoke slowly. 'Whatever dangers we suffer here…I would hate to bring another person into it all.'

'Well…' Luke grumbled. 'It could go either way.'

There came a knock on the door.

'That will be them' Luke said flatly rising from his seat.

Cam's stomach suddenly flipped, and his heart constricted in his chest. He felt panic rise inside him. He couldn't deal with all that was expected of him.

Please he thought to himself. Please let it all just be over.

Cam glanced around nervously as Luke opened the door, staring wide eyed at the two figures that entered the room.

His mother the queen stood there, and beside her a young girl sixteen in age. She was pret

ty, with light brown hair. The dress she wore was beautiful, red and gold in colour and modest in design, with many frills. To her chest, she clutched a little doll.

Valery stepped forwards timidly, lifting her doll and placing it carefully on the operating table as she went.

She approached Cam; Miranda lingering by the door raised her head as the princess drew closer to Cam.

'It's good to see you awake at last' she said to him. 'I understand that we are to be married.'

'Cam' Luke said to him from beside the door. 'This is Valery.'

Cam only stared back at her lost for words, unsure of what to say, feeling so out of place and out of his depths.

What am I supposed to say to her?! What would she want me to say?

'May I…' Valery spoke, 'touch you?'

Cam didn't speak, but he bowed his head in acceptance.

Valery reached for him, moving very slowly with both hands extended.

She held him gently either side of his face, gazing into his eyes, and Cam, through his better eye, gazed back.

Interlude start

'Aaawwww. Do you see that?' Isami asked her companion as they stared at the monitor together.

'What?' Lucas asked.

'She likes him.'

Lucas frowned, tilting his head as he studied intensively the image before him. 'How can you tell?'

'Because' Isami gleamed knowingly, 'I just can.'

She twirled playfully then, turning to face him, Lucas sensing her gaze hesitated, before meeting her eyes.

'What?'

'Oh it's nothing really' Isami said casually. 'I was just thinking.'

'About what?'

'Us.'

Lucas moved away, avoiding the subject.

'Please don't.'

'Why not?'

She approached, touching him at the chin and turning his head to face her again.

'You know how I feel about you' Isami whispered. 'What are you afraid of?'

'Look at what happened to Auntie' Lucas replied automatically.

'Do you think I would do that to you?' Isami asked him. 'You know how long I've loved you. I would never hurt you.'

'I've loved one that was dear to me before' Lucas replied. 'I am not afraid of death, but of losing one close to me. I'm afraid to love for fear of losing the one I love…as I lost her.'

'Time heals all wounds' Isami answered quietly.

'It does' Lucas replied. 'But I cannot go through that pain again.'

Isami came before him then, moving uncomfortably close.
