Ro looked at the stars. He sighed. He couldn’t be happier that everything was over. Well, more or less. It was a few weeks after the coronation: in those weeks, he had hardly had time for himself, or for Hazina. But from the looks of it, things were finally calming down.
He had been forced to handle the royals (seriously, some of his nephews were nags!) Where was Kay when he needed him? Kay had disappeared, avoiding all the royal stuff.
The big lion looked at the cave, and started walking towards it. Would Hazina be home before him? He hoped so… If the Royals didn’t stop pestering her .. He growled slightly, and sighed.
When he entered the cave, at first, he couldn’t see. So he whispered: “Hazina?”
He squinted his eyes, trying to find her. Hardly a second after he said her name, he could see a pair of stars shining in the cave. Her beautiful blue eyes sparkled like the stars outside.
“Good evening my love.” He replied to her.
“Let me guess, another terrible day between those puffed up Royals.”
“How did you know?” He said with his voice dripping of irony. He really was starting to dislike the royals. “I have a good idea. Let’s make all the royals commoners.”
He sighed. “No more of that political babble … I can’t wait for the more normal stuff, like going back on patrols. Or dealing with normal things, like the problems between the commoners, or making sure the rules are followed.”
He let himself drop down next to Hazina. He nuzzled her. “Maybe I should go hunting with you. Spend a whole day listening to you, taking orders from you.” Playfully, he put paw over Hazina’s paw.
“Ow, but I am not sure if you can handle …. my commands.” She said before she pushed him over on his back.
“I drag bigger prey then you to the ground.”
Hazina pushed him over, and he gladly just played along, rolling over on his back.
“Ow, but I am not sure if you can handle …. my commands.”
He laughed. “A lightweight like you?” Ro teased her.
“I can drag biggers preys then me over the ground. Not impressive, my dear.”
He kept rolling, pulling Hazina over his belly, making her balance shift so she would be hanging over him, instead of pinning him down.
“See, too light.” He tried to hold her in that position; She could get out if she wanted, he knew.
He laughed, and was shushed by some lion walking by. Probably a mom with a sleepless kid.
Ro giggled, and teasingly bit in her ear.“It seems I am mastered …” She said with a pur. “Now, what are you gonna do with your lady?”
Suddenly, he felt like this was .. a different kind of play. He smiled - this kind of play was welcome … “Well …” He playfully said. “Maybe I should try to use this to my advantage and flip around.”
He moved his balance a little - “My Lady … “ He softly licked her, before carefully flipping their positions.
