“Cassandra.” There’s a certain sadness to his voice- a sadness that cannot be fixed with soft kisses and warm embraces. He walks into the room, taking his steps carefully, trying not to knock anything over or bump his horns into the walls.
He kneels down in front of her on their bed, and he places his large hands on her legs, forcing a smile up at her. The Seeker finally moves to look at him, tangling her fingers in his white hair, a strong contrast to his dark, silvery skin. Tears well up in her eyes, and she cannot look at him anymore, loosening her grip on him.
“We have tried for almost a year,” She strained, unable to raise her voice above a whisper.
Perhaps she was not meant for family.
"Hey,” His voice starts to crack and his heart drops in his chest. He wants to sit and cry with her, curl up and never face the world again. It was all too much. “There is nothing stopping us from adopt… ado…” Orion trails off when he feels her shake, and he reaches up, cupping her face in his hands, his calloused thumbs wiping at her eyes.
She rests her forehead against his and she lets out the first cry in what feels like ages; it is a painful sound, one that Orion never really wants to hear again. He has never seen her like this before. She does not cry easily, but this is not crying- this is howling, limbs shaking, throat raw and eyes stinging.
“I’m so sorry,” He repeats, wrapping his arms around her. “I’m sorry.” It’s all he say to keep from starting himself. But eventually he caves, and his eyes slide shut, pressing his face into her shoulder.
