Meme: “If I was your lover”… Finish it in my ask.
Vincent cleared his throat to seek Kuja’s attention before speaking. “If I was your lover well, not much would change. I would still act more like a bodyguard than a guide– even though you don’t need it. I would continue to search for the most beautiful and interesting sights to show you, even if we’d traveled Gaia thrice over. I would hold you when the shadows of the past that you try to act as though do not exist threatened to overtake your eyes. I would love you fiercely; until you were spent and exhausted and could not think to beg for more. I would treasure you as a being of utmost importance and worth. I am not ashamed or embarrassed by these things; that is for children.” He looked away, obviously weighted by some awful guilt or another.
“But… These are not things I would lay upon your shoulders. These are my own selfish desires; To adore and worship you as I see fit.“
Such glorious words of desire poured over Kuja like the sweetest nectar—a libation to his very existence. Never before had he been given such promises and praise, for his was a life of scorn and bitterness. And even the pretty sentences he had received in the past were always fraught with ulterior motives—and yet the red death spoke with true love.
However had fate joined him with such a devoted knight…?
Kuja drew closer, extending his delicate hand for Vincent to take.
“Then hesitate not in your worship—I shall gladly accept it.”
