Here we go with chapter 10, in which the ball happens, a few precious moments, and some other stuff.

Zisteau adjusted his gold crown, which marked him as prince, though his was less fancy, and expensive as his fathers, looking at himself in the mirror. He couldn't wait to see Kurt again, it had only been a day since the last time they'd seen each other, but it felt like forever. He briefly pondered if it was always like this with couples, if they always felt like the time they spent together was never enough and the time apart was far too long.

"Hey sweetie." Came a soothing voice.

"Hello mother." Zisteau replies, briefly glancing away from his reflection.

"You look great in that."

"Thanks, you look lovely as well."

Aurey really did though. She was wearing a dark green, low cut, dress that hugged her thin body. The back was mostly lace and it was accented with black. It went surprisingly well with her red hair, with was pulled up into an intricate, braided bun. Her tiara stood out as well, showing, not only her prestige, but adding to her beauty. And, her emerald green eyes shined brightly, finishing off the already amazing look.

"Zisteau, I wanted to talk to you about something." Aurey says, rather seriously.

"Hmm?" Zisteau questions, raising an eyebrow as he eyes her through the mirror.

"The reason your father changed his mind." She starts simply. "I talked to him about it, and Bdubs. He doesn't want to be like his father, so he's making a change, letting you be with Kurt is one of the first steps."

Zisteau smiles brightly at her reflection. "Thank you so much!"

"Honey, I just want you to know, tonight will be difficult."


"There's going to be a lot of people who will disagree with you being with Kurt."


"But, no matter what Zisteau, just stay strong, I'm positive you can get through this, no matter what."

Zisteau sends her a small smile. "Thanks."

"Now come along, we've got to great guests."

Zisteau follows his mother out of his room and down the stairs. They were mer by Guude, who looked his best, waiting by the closed gates. His attire matched Aurey's, with his dark green tunic and black pants, and his crown, which rested upon his dirty blond hair.

They stood around, greeting guests as they entered. They all made their way to the dinning hall, where a feast was being prepared. He recognized some people, but not many. Though he did spy Bdubs among the crowd. He watched as Guude and Bdubs shared a brief, awkward hello before Bdubs continued on. He couldn't miss the way Aurey sent Guude a pointed look, before smiling again.

Then Zisteau saw Kurt. He was in total awe. Kurt was dressed up in a fancy white dress shirt with a charcoal colored overcoat. And, his hair was not messy, for once, but slicked back. Zisteau honestly couldn't keep his eyes off of Kurt, who he considered the most beautiful thing ever. A huge grin was plastered on his face as he went to meet Kurt. Blue-green meet blue-red and a deep, passionate kiss was shared, and the noise and chaos around them stilled. Zisteau pulled away briefly, leaning close to Kurt's ear.

"You look so hot right now." Zisteau murmured.

He saw the blush appear on Kurt's face, but he smiled anyway. He linked his arm with Kurt's as he continued to great guests, which were slowly dwindling. After the last guest had finally entered, the small group made their way to the dinning hall, where the king and queen took their seats. Zisteau took his and Kurt say beside him, where the princes partner would generally sit.

They got quiet a few questioning looks, but they all soon stopped staring as Guude began his toast.

"I would like to welcome you all on this lovely evening. I'd like to make a toast, to my beautiful wife, Aureylian, who arranged this. And, to my son, Zisteau, and the newest addition to our family, Kurt."

Everyone clinked glasses and started piling food onto their plates, from the multitude of platters in the middle of the tables. Zisteau glanced to Kurt, who was blushing slightly.

"You ok?" Zisteau questioned, placing a hand on Kurt's arm.

"Hmm?" Kurt began, glancing up at Zisteau. "Yeah, I'm fine." He finishes with a smile.

Zisteau smiles gently at him, intertwining their fingers and giving them a gentle squeeze. It was returned briefly before the two started getting their own food.

"Isn't that where the princes girl is supposed to sit?" Zisteau hears.

"Yeah, but I saw those two kissing. Can you believe them?" Came a second voice.

"You know, I think it's cute." A third voice interjected.

"No, that's just weird and wrong." The first states.

Zisteau clears his throat, gaining the three's attention. "I would greatly appreciate it if you didn't talk about me, or Kurt like that." He says, using his authority as prince to his advantage.

"We're sorry, prince." They all say, bowing their heads in shame.

After dinner had been eaten, and wine drunken, all the guests moved to the ballroom, where a small orchestra was waiting to play. Zisteau watched Aurey and Guude dance, both having big smiles on their faces as a faster paced song was played. He looked to Kurt, seeing how uncomfortable he looked as people have him dirty looks.

"May I have this dance?" Zisteau questioned, curtsying slightly, catching Kurt's attention, as a slow song started resonating through the large room.

"You may indeed." Kurt replied with a smile.

Zisteau placed his hands on Kurt's hips, gently pulling him closer. Lurts hands rested on Zisteau's shoulders as the two swayed back and forth to the gentle music being played in the background. Blue-green eyes held blue-red the whole time, unable to look away.

"I love you, Kurt." Zisteau says quietly, bringing the two impossibly close.

"I love you two, Zisteau." Kurt replied, smiling gently, though love showed in his blue-red eyes, a deep, burning love that could never, ever be broken.

Zisteau kisses Kurt gently, loving how Kurt instantly reacted, kissing back just as gently. It was so magical, almost as magical as the first. But, each time they kissed, Zisteau felt himself falling in love all over again. He didn't care about the eyes trained on them, judgmental or approving, all that mattered was Kurt, the love of his life, being in his arms.

"Guude, darling, maybe you should talk to Bdubs." Aurey says gently, her hand caressing his cheek.

"I don't know, Aureylian, my beautiful wife, he probably won't want to talk to me." Guude replies sadly.

"But you won't know unless you try."

Guude sighs deeply. "Alright, I'll talk to him, for you."

"Thank you my love."

Guude lets go of Aurey's hands and steps away, glancing at his beautiful wife once more before turning to find the one he used to, and still does, love. He looked around the crowds, trying to find Bdubs, who he was honestly nervous to talk to. He briefly thought about earlier, when he had seen him. It sent a shiver down his spine and his heart had skipped a beat, he had been just as beautiful as he remembered.

Guude shook his head, trying to clear it of thoughts as he continued to scan the crowds. Then his eyes met Bdubs' chocolate brown and he felt his face heat up. He slowly walked over to him, his legs suddenly feeling weak and shaky.

"Bdubs.... can we talk? Please?" Guude asks shakily, after he reached Bdubs.

"Fine." Bdubs says. "But not here, somewhere more private."

Guude nods quickly. "O-Of course."

He had butterflies I'm his stomach as he lead Bdubs from the room. He was more nervous now then he'd ever been, and Bdubs chocolate brown eyes trained on him didn't help any. They entered Guude's study, where Guude closed the door and locked it behind him, just to make sure they wouldn't be disturbed.

"Do you know how fucking much I've missed you?!?" Bdubs suddenly shouts, catching Guude off guard.

"I... Boo...." Was all Guude could say as tears welled up in his green eyes.

"Guude, just tell me what you wanted so I can go back out there and suffer while watching you and Aurey dance." Bdubs says sadly, looking away from Guude, unable to meet his teary green eyes.

"Boo. I still love you, you idiot. How could I not. You were the best thing to happen to me."

Bdubs stares at Guude in shock. "I... I still love you too." He says, a single tear slowly falling down his cheek.

Guude looked at Bdubs incredibly "I-I thought you would hate me..."

"How could I hate you. You may be an idiot but I love you. I always have."

Guude reached out and grabbed Bdubs, pulling him close, hugging him tightly. Bdubs head fell limply on Guude's shoulder as he wrapped his arms tightly around the other. When they eventually pulled away, Bdubs brown eyes flicked between Guude's green eyes and his lips.

"Boo. We can't and I'm so sorry. You don't even know how much I want this, but I'm a married man."

"I know." Bdubs says sadly.

"I've got to get back out there, Boo, but just remember, I do love you, always." Guude says, placing a kiss on Bdubs' cheek.

"I-I love you too." Bdubs murmurs quietly.

Guude walked back out of the room, leaving Bdubs to stand there staring after Guude incredulously. Guude rejoined Aurey on the dance floor, giving her a small smile.

"How'd it go?" Aurey asked kindly.

"It uh... it went well." Guude replied, bitting his bottom lip.

"Did you kiss him?" Aurey asks playfully.

"Aurey!" Guude says with a laugh, before becoming serious. "No. I couldn't."

"Don't worry, I understand why." Aurey says gently, taking his hand and giving it a gentle squeeze.

Aurey points somewhere, nudging Guude gently in the side. He follows where she was pointing and sees Zisteau and Kurt slow dancing, with Kurt's head on Zisteau chest as they slowly swayed back and forth. He also saw the distrusted looks they got.

"I really hope this works out for them, they look so happy." Guude says, glancing to Aurey.

"I know they'll be ok, there's no doubt about it." Aurey says, holding Guude's gaze.

Guude raises a questioning eyebrow.

"They'll be ok, they're both strong, they'll get through this." Aurey says, intertwining their fingers together and squeezing gently. "Just remember your promise Guude."

"I do remember it, and I promise, I will. You know I'll keep that promise till death."

"I know you will my beautiful husband, I know you will."

Long after the festivities had ended the four sat in the lounge, relaxing after the a long evening. Zisteau had his arms around Kurt, snuggling close to him, while Guude and Aurey sat by the fireplace.

"Can Kurt stay tonight?" Zisteau asks, breaking the comfortable silence that had hung in air.

"Of course sweetie." Aurey replies with a bright smile, though it seemed off.

Zisteau couldn't tell why, but something was off. It might have just been from the long night, but he wasn't sure.

"Well were gonna head to bed, goodnight."

Aurey stands up and kisses Zistesu's head. "Goodnight, Zisteau."

Zisteau and Kurt headed from the room hand on hand. Zisteau could tell by Kurt's expression that something was bugging him, but he just gave Kurt's hand a gentle squeeze and let it slid, momentarily. They reached Zisteau's room and he pulled off his shirt, feeling eyes trained on him.

"Like the view?" Zisteau teases, pulling, the very embarrassed, Kurt closer.

Kurt stammered out something incomprehensible and let out a sigh. Zisteau caressed Kurt's cheek, gently stroking with the pad of his thumb.

"What's wrong red and blue?" Zisteau questions quietly.

Kurt lets out a sigh, leaning into the touch of Zisteau's hand. "Just seeing you with your parents.... I know I shouldn't be jealous, but I am." Kurt replies sadly, his gaze leaving Zisteau's.

"Kurt." Zisteau says gently, using two fingers to gently lift his chin, so blue-red met blue-green. "I'm so sorry, if it's ever too much, just tell me."


"Hey, come on now, don't be sad. Me, you, the whole night."

A small smile tugs at Kurt's lips, as his arms wrap around Zisteau, pulling him even closer, letting their lips meet. The kiss was slow and sweet, full of love. After an impossibly long time they pulled away, resting their foreheads against the others.

"I love you, so, so much." Zisteau murmurs, unable to keep the smile off of his face.

"I love you too." Kurt replies quietly.

The two curl up in bed, cuddled against the other, impossible close, and never, ever wanting to be apart.

"Guude, my darling, why don't we head to bed." Aurey says, glancing at her husband, that she loved ever so much.

Guude sends her a gentle smile. "Alright my love."

Guude and Aurey head up to their room. Aurey slips out of her dress, letting it fall to the ground as she kicked of her shoes. She approached Guude, slowly unbuttoning his green dress shirt, and casting her irresistible emerald gaze on Guude. She pressed her lips to Guude's kissing him deeply, portraying the many, many years of love they'd shared.

Guude's arms wrapped around Aurey's thin, beautiful, body, pulling her closer. She reached up and pulled the pin that kept her hair in place, and it fell in thick curls around her shoulders. Guude pulled back slightly, his eyes asking a silent question. Aurey nodded with a smile.

Guude gently pushed her onto the bed, kissing up her bare chest, which sent shivers down her spine as she stared up into the eyes of the man she loved. She tangled her fingers in is blond hair, gently bringing his lips to hers, kissing him deeply, as she felt hands tug at her underwear.

She snuggled closer to Guude, laying her head on his chest in the afterglow, her mind still clouded with bliss. Guude wrapped his arms around her tightly, kissing her head.

"I love you Aureylian." Guude says gently.

Aurey brushed her fingertips on Guude's face, before moving to kiss him briefly. "I love you too Guude, always.

Aurey laid her head back on Guude's chest, taking a deep breath, loving Guude's husky smell. Aurey laid to rest, falling into a deep slumber, one that would never cease.

Huh. So she was dying. Her last words to Zisteau were good night. And her final last words were "I love you too Guude. Always." Someone bookmark that and keep it safe so we can all look back on it when this series is over.

Goddamit Bubbles! My suspicions about Aureylian dying were right! I knew that she was sick or something when she made Guude promise that if anything happened to her he would get back with Bdubs. Seriously welling up right now :'(

This chapter was so sweet at first, and then got really sad; it also showed that not everyone is going to be comfortable with change and I think some serious shit is going to hit the fan if Guude gets back with Bdubs after Aurey's death, like civil war type shit. :(

Oh the feels, the feels, why? Aurey...what was wrong with her? Why did she die? At least it was peaceful. That's always good.

Yeah, what was her cause of death? Something that she would know about, but not prominent enough to show any obvious symptoms. Something that probably didn't cause too much pain, but still had a noticeable effect. And most importantly, something she knew wasn't treatable or something she didn't want treated. Now, how old was she, is there a history of lung or heart problems in her family, was she eating enough, getting enough vitamins and minerals, how was her metabolism, was she having trouble thinking clearly or remembering things, and was she exposed to some form of virus or disease within the past 6 months? Has she ever been around hazardous or radioactive materials, was she having nerve pains, was she extremely tired, was she under severe amounts of stress and pressure? Bonus cubic mile of cookies if you can actually answer all of those questions. -Observing Anon
