I thought you'd feel the same as me
It's time that I come clean
But for now can we just both pretend to sleep
Sometimes the one you want, is not the one you need
What goes around, don't come around[/smear:984305]
Each deliberate step stirred more anxiety within the lurking beast. The frigid temperatures of winter didn't quite seem to reach that far into the vast network of the caverns. The beast inhaled carefully, relishing in the much more moderate temperatures. He did his best to brace his body for he cold outside. His stomach churned as each foot fell back to the earth, bringing him ever closer to the entrance. Cadomir inhaled sharply, trying to appease his racing heart. His lids fluttered closed for just a moment. The cool breeze soon reached his winter coat. The hessian's legs grew stiff, forcing his movement to cease. Cadomir's lithe body trembled beneath the whispers of the winter breeze. He stared ahead, the glow of the snow reflecting daylight caused him to squint.
His stomach grew pained, churning a bit faster as he forced himself to press forward. Another shudder slithered down his spine. Cadomir watched his puffs of breath becoming much more noticeable. His left eye closed completely as he emerged into the brisk winter air. His legs plowed through the snow that had built up overnight. The frozen droplets pressed against his thickly coated legs, dampening the hairs that coated his legs. He stared into the snow, mesmerized by the sparkling particles. It was only his third winter after all. Soon he would be three, and here he was already standing before a kingdom. Cadomir wouldn't shy away from the fact that he believed he was destined to be a great equine, but he was not as prepared as he would've liked. The brute was even more uneasy without guidance.
The Harbringers were gone after the ghastly attack on poor Famine. Cadomir shivered again, tucking his head closer to his chest as he trudged onward through the snow drifts. He knew that he had work to do, but part of him desperately wanted to just be young again. To just be beside his twin once more. Cadomir was plagued with an overwhelming amount of emotions as he silently listened to their onslaught. He inhaled softly finally, pulling himself from his thoughts. Cadomir glanced around the spacious meadow Vahill housed. It seemed he was alone for now. Cadomir shook his head, remembering advice he'd known well to take. Do not forget to have fun, all work will wear you out. The hessian sighed, and a small smile grew across his maw.
Cado leapt over a large snow drift, sliding as he landed once more. He kicked his hooves out behind him as he lost his balance, falling beneath the snow with an eruption of laughter. If only for a moment, it was nice to forget the worries of having a throne pressed into his hands.
