prepared for the worst but still praying for the best

spiritiisms  asked:

Dad. What do you do when you like someone?

      The Herald did not look up from his paperwork. “You pray to whatever gods you believe in that you won’t regret the decision, but ultimately prepare for the worst while simultaneously hoping for the best.”

       He leaned back, heavy yellow eyes focused upon the cup of coffee he brought to his lips, taking sip from the still piping hot beverage. From there, they flickered over towards Anilith, a rather cheeky and evasive smile pulling at the Herald’s pale lips. “So, who is this individual that you ‘like’, Anilith? Come now, share the tale of your new love with this old man while he works.”
