I wonder if the corruption being a diamond-specific power is just bc only diamonds have access to that tech due to their position in command or if it’s a nod to them being at the top of the Mohs scale and being able to damage every other gemstone
Byron reached up and caressed the side of my face gently as he whispered to me. Byron: “If we go back we’ll just have to work. Are you really okay with that?” I felt silent as I realized what his words meant, and my heart skipped a beat. (Well, when he says it like that.) I reached out and caught hold of his arms. (After all, I’ve been waiting so long for him to touch me again.) Byron placed a gentle kiss on my forehead. Dee: “Byron…” I spoke his name in a hoarse whisper, and Byron smiled at once. We gazed at each other in silence for a moment, and I felt unable to look away. When at last he spoke again, his voice was a whisper as well. Byron: “The first time I met you was in this forest.” Dee: “Oh!” His voice seemed to reverberate through my heart, and I took a deep breath. Dee: “You remembered.”
What a hot and sweet scene at the same time!!!!
