☠: Your muse has died, this is how mine reacts.
“Andromeda, we need to talk.” Her father said firmly, his features grim as if he’d witnessed the worst thing in the world. It was rare for her father to be anything but serious, but the look on his face meant that he nothing good to say. Bracing herself, Andromeda look him dead in the eye, waiting for whatever harsh lecture he was going to throw her way this time. “Regulus has been killed.”
Almost instantly it felt like the air had been sucked from her lungs, her steely gaze melting away to a look of complete horror.
“W-What? How, why, who?” She stuttered out, her eyes probably wide with fear. “Daddy, what happened to him?”
“We don’t know all the details yet, but I wanted you to know.” His words were plain and unloving, proving that even in a time of disaster, he couldn’t look past the person his daughter was becoming. He stood and strolled out of the room, leaving Andromeda to sit and wallow in the news he’d just dropped onto her. The tears couldn’t be kept away for long, spilling onto her cheeks as she gave into the sadness taking over her heart. Regulus and her may not have been close in their last few months, but she still loved him with whole her heart. He was still her family, even if she wasn’t his and it felt like a piece of herself had been torn away.
