ImageLucas woke with sunlight playing over his face in his room. He knew immediately he would be in trouble with someone. Nicholas probably wouldn't care all that much, but Lucas cared, greatly. He raced out of bed, pulling on his pants as he made his way to the door and throwing on his shirt as he was leaving the room. He was running down the hall of the barracks, slowly pulling article after article of clothing on while he tried to move quickly.

Where was his ward? Racing to Nicholas's room, Lucas knocked and upon hearing no answer, yanked the door open only to see the room empty. No, he was gone already. Racing down the stairs of the castle, Lucas nearly knocked a servant over.

He had gotten so caught up in last night with that girl. He hadn't been able to sleep, slept in, then missed being with Nicholas. Where was that boy king? Racing outside, he hoped the hunt hadn't already begun. He jumped onto his horse the stable boy had out having expected him for the hunt and took off only to see a set of tents. Perhaps Nicholas hadn't wanted to go. Lucas prayed the boy hadn't wanted to go as he raced for the larger tents.

He dismounted, passing the reins to a nearby squire without any explanation and ducking his head to look for Nicholas, smiling with relief as he saw the boy and the count. Straightening his appearance, Lucas walked in, hoping he appeared calmer than he felt, which was like chaos had narrowly been avoided. He hadn't even watched his ward last night. He could have been killed for his lack of completing his duty.

"There you are my king. Count," Lucas managed without gasping for air. He didn't like the formalities and was sure Nicholas wouldn't mind Lucas calling him just Nicholas in private, but out here, in front of everyone, well, the count could order his death should he want to.

Lucas wanted to collapse in relief but instead took up a spot by where Nicholas's seat was set. His friend would probably ask him about the girl last night, wondering how things went and where Lucas was this morning. He didn't want to face his friends questions, feeling guilty, but knew there wasn't going to be much of a choice. Besides, he kind of wanted to share his experience with the girl. He needed advice about handling relationships. Had he really just thought that?

So the hunt hadn't been attended by everyone and the count opted out as well as Nicholas, not an entire surprise, but surely a gratifying one.
