The Deals We Make



Ch 5 - True Hearts Don't Make Deals


DG locked her door and leaned heavily against it with a sigh. God she was lonely with Az and Ambrose at Finaqua.

“Hey there, Princess,” a familiar greeting made her catch her breath.

She covered her mouth with her hand to hide her gasp, but a tiny squeak slipped out. She was dizzy as if she’d taken a huge whiff of vapors. Weak in the knees, it seemed wiser to slide down the door, than fall in a heap.

Cain was out of his chair in an instant and by her side. One hand reassuringly on her shoulder the other lifting her chin so she couldn’t look away. “I didn’t mean to scare you. I’d been led to believe you’d be glad to see me.”

“I am…just a long day…meetings with the Eastern Guild….” she stuttered. “Who told you I’d be glad to see you? Who have you been talking to?” She felt sick; sure that she knew the answer. “Was it Az or Jeb?” Her eyes flashed as she pulled away from him and stood to regain her dignity. “I won’t have it! You’ve already given up enough. Whatever they told you was a lie.”

“You didn’t make a deal that Azkadellia would produce the heir, if you took the throne?” He knew her well enough to tell when she was trying to avoid an uncomfortable truth.

“So sue me, I don’t want to get married,” she huffed. “It was the rest of it that isn’t true. The next time she gets pregnant she’ll be fine. I can feel it.”

“What the hell are you talking about?” he growled.

“The miscarriages….”

“What miscarriages, Princess?” he demanded and moved closer.

“It’s Queen now, incase you don’t remember.” She backed away from him realizing she’d told him more than he knew.

“I love you, Deeg,” he whispered and cupped her cheek.

“You can’t, you love Adora.” She blinked quickly as her eyes filled with tears.

“Sure I loved her. A part of me always will, but, for me, she’s been dead over nine annuals. You’re the one I’m in love with. Have been from almost the beginning.”

“Please, Wyatt, this isn’t fair.” Tears rolled down her face at his touch. “I appreciate what you’re doing, but I won’t have you give up your life because of some promise you made to the Mystic Man.”

“What are you talking about?” His eyes filled with worry as he gently ran a thumb over her cheeks to dry them.

“I must marry and have a child.”

“That’s a cause for joy not tears.” He smiled.

“But I love you and you…”

“Hush.” He didn’t let her finish, he scooped her up and kissed her like he should have that day she suggested he leave. It would have saved them months of heartache.

“You really do love me,” her words were breathless and filled with joy.

They were married two months later and a year after that Emily Cain-Gale was born.

And They Lived Happily Ever After

That was very nice; if a bit rushed in the ending department. However, I am going with the theory that you are making room to finish my other favorite DG fic.

As always a lovely read.

Re: Awwwwweeee!
I know it was rushed, but I had to stick to 500 words for each prompt and one prompt per chapter. It was the only way this story was going to be written. It's been hangout out in my head for a while. If I'd done my usual with it, it would have been do depressing. I couldn't have written it.

Yes I am working on Making Memories. I hope that's the story you're talking about.

Re: Awwwwweeee!
Thanks so much, it means a lot. There are times I need to write more than I do eat. To know that people like what I produce always stuns me.

Re: Awwwwweeee!
I know what you mean...I read my writing and think it is juvenile and contrived, but people say its good and I am always surprised.

You have a definate gift...I love getting to brush the hem of your literary garments.
