Cassandra sighed. Rufus was being too persistent, and she knew there was nothing she could do but give in. He wouldn't change his mind once he had set it on something. "Do you really want to know? Are you sure about that?"

Cassandra asked, her eyebrows knitted in challenge as she looked up at Rufus who was pinning her down on the couch.

"Of course. I won't let you go until you tell me," he insisted, mirroring her earlier by raising his eyebrows himself.

Seeing the stubborn expression on his face, Cassandra took a deep breath, thinking where to begin.

"Get off me first. I can't talk properly like this. I won't escape, I promise. Then I'll tell you everything."

It was hard for her to breath with Rufus lying on top of her, his solid body framing hers. If she was going to be telling him everything, she had to get him off first. He was already distracting enough from a safe distance. They were so close that she could almost feel the flutter of his eyelids.

Rufus, damn him, of course knew it. The blush coloring her cheeks as she turned sideward to avoid his eyes told him more than enough. Deciding to tease her, he moved a bit, holding up the upper side of his body with both arms and raising his chin a little.

"Here you go. This is more than enough space. Tell me now."

He lifted a hand to her chin and forced her to look at him. "I'm waiting, Cassandra." He grinned wickedly at her as his eyes twinkled with mischief. With his arms around her, Cassandra was effectively trapped.

She knew that he would not let her go until her answer satisfied him. This bastard!

"Fine! It was a little boy, my first love …"

But before she could proceed, she was interrupted by Rufus.

"It definitely wasn't a girl," he said, fighting back a chuckle and trying to keep a serious expression. "Please get to the point. What was his name?"

Rufus narrowed his eyes at her, as if a beast focusing on its prey.

"To be honest, I didn't know his name..."

Cassandra lowered her voi

very first toy I've ever received in my life. I've kept it for a long time. I even held it to sleep every night, telling it of everything that happened around me—the good and the bad. It was my only source of comfort at that time. I remembered the boy every time I saw the unicorn toy, and I would imagine that it was him listening to my stories, and looking at me with his warm eyes."

Cassandra finished her story. Her eyelashes fluttered and she turned to Rufus silently, her eyes meaningful, as she waited for his response.

From above her, Rufus stared at his woman with wide eyes.

"The boy you're talking about…It's me, right?" he asked in a low voice.

His throat was dry, but he managed to pronounce each word clearly.

He couldn't believe his own ears and wondered if he was only imagining what he wanted her to say.

Her warm hand pulled him back to reality. She smiled up at him and said, "Right, it was you. It has always been, and will always be you and nobody else. I didn't know when it started, but before I knew it, my feelings have been planted deep and just grown bigger day after day. I was thinking of the boy all the time. I remembered the warmth from his fingers when he was passing the unicorn to me. Every time I thought of him, everything seemed a little more hopeful, no matter how desperate I was."
