Eleteo part 3! As promised, it’s The Scepter of Light this time! Featuring Elena doing the protecting this time (seriously, our girl sees that he’s in trouble and jumps out in front of him without a second thought, that’s love). And of course the part where he carries her. Mateo’s got 2 inches and maybe 15 pounds on Elena, less when she’s wearing that fancy ballgown, but he still picks her up like it’s nothing. And somehow gets her on a horse. And rides said horse back to the palace with Elena sitting on his lap the entire time. When he’s noted to not be that good at riding horses. He’s so devoted to her and it’s beautiful.
Next time it’s the hand-holding scene and Island of Youth!
