Finally we find the men in the garden of all places. We see them off in the distance and Tulip calls out to them. Jax leaves his place at a run and joins us near the back entrance of the castle. Cade soon follows, and I tell them what's happened with Parfon. “That bitch!” Cade snarls before storming into the castle. “So he's got a plan?” Tulip asks. I give a shrug and tell them I'll catch up with them later. In our chambers, Cade paces back and forth angrily. “Anytime we get a little lead, we end up right back at the start!” he fumes. “I know sweetie. Honestly I think we should let Parfon and Carolin duke it out. Maybe one of them will kill the other, and then we'll have one less problem on our hands” I tell him as I gently rub his shoulder. “Ugh! Maybe you're right. You know what? Between you and me, I really just need a break. I just want to spend time with you, just us. Away from Parfon, Carolin, Trolls...all of it” he says looking out the window. “It'll all work out darling. You're such a strong man, and an excellent king. We all get overwhelemed sometimes. We just have to do the best we can, and let the chips fall where they may” I soothingly tell him. He reaches over and pulls me into a tender hug. “You know what I really need?” he whispers in my ear. I blush deeply, as he begins to kiss my neck. “But, darling shouldn't you be-” I start, but he cuts me off. “The only thing I should be doing right now, is making love to my beautiful wife” he says as he scoops me up in one motion. He kisses my lips, and I feel that electric spark I always get. He gently lays me on the bed, and takes his coat off. He disrobes me then himself, kissing and caressing me all the while. “I love you beautiful” he whispers sweetly in my ear. Before I know it, he's on top of me and the two of us our overcome with pleasure.
I barely notice the sound of the door opening, or Cade's arms around me. He gently catches my face in his hands, and wipes my tears. A tender kiss follows, and I look into his eyes briefly. I glance away frowning, as tears continue to roll down my face. “My love, what's the matter? Who's hurt you?” he asks worriedly. I shake my head and try to compose myself. He helps me to my feet, and giving a sniff I reply as I trip over my words, “I....I can't...I just want to make you happy.” At this point, I stop and take a deep breath. Finally some composer comes to me, and I begin again. “My amulet is working again. Arthur seems to think it's because Parfon left, like maybe she had some sort of spell on it preventing it from working” I explain. Cade nods along as I speak, as though this is all makes sense to him. “I just saw Jax and Tulip in the courtyard gardens. She told him that she is pregnant with his twins, and his response was a propsal! I'm so very happy for them, and for the other couples that are having children. But...as you know we've been trying for some time now. I thought it wise to have the doctor check me out” I continue. At this my eyes find the floor and I finish, “Unfortunately he has informed me that I am no longer able to bear children...I'm so sorry, but I cannot give you an heir.” Tears once again spill from my eyes, and I cover my face in shame and heartache.
“Now just where do you think you're going? Those cousin's will need bonding time! You must stay for dinner! Right Nora? Cade?” Roonie pipes. “In fact I think you may have outgrown Brendlewood's village. The school is running well here, and well with Learia recently being rebuilt, I think we could use your help Bonnie. Our school number's are very low indeed. What do you say to moving to Learia?” Luke adds. Arthur and Bonnie exchange looks. “But, what about the children? When would she be able to care for them?” Arthur asks. “We know you enjoy the village life, but perhaps you could stay with us at the castle. That way the nurses can care for the little ones, and you can still do what you love. You can always move to the village or back to Brendlewood once the school is better established or your little ones are a bit older. What do you think?” Roonie suggests. “We'll certainly think on it. I do enjoy helping the children learn, and Brendlewoods school is thriving with Miss Kencie and Ms. Petson running it” Bonnie mentions. “We'll see you at dinner” Luke calls as the two couples make their way to the staircase, all talking excitedly about Learia.
