Her words cracking like a whip. That remark... Hurt. Ales hadn't expected it to.
Vara promised him that she'll love him forever. Every night, they Ales had whispered about how he'll never gonna hurt her, and she'll respond by saying the same thing.
Oh yes, powerful words, whispered in powerful moments.
But now, when it really counted, she had done exactly that; hurting him.
"Do you have any idea why I do that?" Ales said, trying to keep calm, even though his heart ached so much. His face dimly glimpsed in the shadow of his red hair. "My people needs me. When the Starflight Express had worked again, there's no doubt that my father, the King, would force me to return to Observatory. But I need you more than my people needs me. Having you by my side is the greatest gift The Almighty had given me."
Two years after he had committed 'suicide', the Royal Knights managed to gather all the Fyggs and took it to the Observatory. Of course, The Almighty blessed all the Celestrians with new wings and halo, except Breanne and Robin, who wanted to stay at Protectorate, the mortal's realm.
Then, sooner or later, he would have to pick a girl and marry her. His wife is going to be mother of kings, and he don't want anybody except Vara to be his wife. That's why he decided to pull that crazy stunt in front of everyone.
