You… you won’t be gone too long? Elliot asked sheepishly, embarrassed by how he’d just acted.
Why? I thought you didn’t want to see my face? Korey smirked as he pulled the man in close. Rest, my love. I’ll be back before you know it.
Vincenzo stood back, watching the two with pride. This was a side of Korey he had never seen before, a caring & softer side. Like a son to him, he thought that he had known the commander better than anyone. But this in front of him, this display of happiness & comfort, was why he had always wanted to play matchmaker amongst the dead. What good is eternity with nothing to look forward to? And why stay loyal to your king when you have nothing to lose if you step out of line?
