Elizabeth had turned from Mantis in a huff. He walked up behind her. All that was 'good' within him yearned to apologize, beg her forgiveness. But he knew he had changed. His life was taking a different route now... one he'd continue on.

"Listen, princess," he said mockingly, "you asked for this. You were flirting with me this whole time and gave me to indication to the contrary.

Would you rather have some baron who'd treat you like a mare for riding and show and nothing else?

Everything in him boiled.

He evaporated at once from behind her to standing in front of her. "You need me and you best not forget it..."

Then he was across the room, opening the door. "We should get you back. Your sister is probably missing you. Or perhaps she'd prefer to go for a walk instead?"
