Storyline Name: A Midsummer Night's Scheme
Creators: Eternal Knight & Sailor Neptune
Forum: Free Form
Advanced or Relaxed: Advanced
Plot Summary: They have come to an age where their parents have agreed it's time for them to meet. They are to be, after all, the future King and Queen of their planet and soon they will reach the age when children learn what it is to travel across the universe, adapting other's civilization to their own.

But first, they all must be certain that this duo will work, before they become linked together, before them "meeting with the planet". Even if they shouldn't doubt the planet in its choice, it's the first time it chose both King and Queen, not leaving any room for choice as to who both would live most of their life with. What if they can't stand each other? What if they can't come to an agreement? Even if Oberians quite govern themselves well, they need their protectors to be united.

Oberon and Titania are brought by their respective parents to the High Spheres for the first time. But they won't visit it all with their parents. They'll simply be left in the Great Hall together, the room emptied for the moment and left to get to know each other.

None of them is impressed and clearly they would agree on one thing: if their parents expect them to simply stay in the Hall and speak like grown-ups for hours while standing there like trees, they're morons. There are a thousand things more interesting to do while getting to know that thing that's supposed to become your partner in misery.

But then, someone touches something they shouldn't have and both royal children get overwhelmed with the mess they unleash. In its eternal wisdom, the planet sees this as a way to test them before their final ritual that would make their status official.

Will they be able to fix their mess?
Will they be able to stand each other?
And will their parents survive the worry both children will put them through?

Details on any necessary information: The planet is as sentient as a planet can become, and it has spoken. Whether because it saw more than it predicted or because it was time for some originality, Oberon chose not one but two rulers for this new era. One girl who would become Queen and one boy who would become King. The girl would carry in her the power of her planet, protector to the King and their people. The boy would carry its name and use it well. Both were born into the only place in the Sacred Land where it was said you could hear Oberon singing to you if you simply listened. At first, they weren't raised together, kept apart to learn what their parents would teach them, only to be reunited when the time is right.

Restrictions: Only Oberon and Titania are playable.
OOC Thread: Skype

Be wise they said. Be kind they said. Be polite they said.

Hypocrites, that's what they were. Adults would prank each other, adults would be mocking and a lot of them were indeed polite, respectful and almost perfect even, but not his parents. His parents were among the best of the planet's pranksters and they were respected for such. They were also among those who could charm the inhabitants of any planet they landed on in a record time. He had no idea how they did, but right now, they were asking him to be everything but himself.

He was wise, a bit, he was kind, mostly to those older than he was and he was polite when it was needed. His parents were asking him to charm someone to like him for something that he quite wasn't? They wanted him to be serious and authoritarian. He was supposed to become King, they said, so he had to make a good impression on the other chosen child.

Boring.

He never asked to be chosen. It was exciting, of course, the prospect to grow up to be worshipped, respected, served and loved. Who wouldn't be interested, really? He was prideful, sometimes it was even worrying to see so much pride in such a small body and sometimes he could be vain, so being King was right up his alley, but he was young. He didn't want a throne or to be serious. He wanted to play, he wanted to go with the rest of his people to visit other planets.

-Are you listening, Oberon?

He turned a sulking face to his father.

"Of course, I am, Father."
-Will you do what we ask of you?
"She will like me when the day ends." His answer was lamely breathed out but it seemed to be enough for his parents.

They landed in front of the main entrance and Oberon's complaints died in his throat.

It was the first time he had ever seen the High Spheres. He heard about it, of course, he knew it would be his, as it was the King (or Queen)'s since this planet had its first monarch, but to see it with his own eyes...

It was beautiful. Grand. Royal.

He barely saw the golden and ivory train that quietly passed by them.

Towers upon towers, an architecture that avoided bland or hard lines, everything curves and soft edges, floral and abstract tracery. There were networks of narrow streets made of glass-like ground that allowed them to see under their feet, leading to a garden Oberon couldn't see from where he stood. The main path above which he was still hovering, his wings flapping rapidly, led to a door which ornaments were hard to describe. Oberon didn't know if it was metal, a door worked in wooden wonders or gems. His parents pushed him slightly so he would keep moving towards the door and when he finally arrived in front of it, it slid open.

He blinked.

There was no on else here that could have excused this door opening by itself.

He couldn't wait to find the archives, he couldn't wait to read everything he could on what would become his kingdom. His only sin was knowledge and an insatiable hunger for it. And pride. But we don't talk about that.

He was still watching around him with awe and wonder (the Great Hall itself was a splendor of fae-made interior and décor, avoiding the rash appearance of stairs by putting none in the main entrance as most Oberian could fly. He was sure he could see a long couch slowly rising off the floor and carrying a wingless fae up. Branch-like adornments were intertwined together in the cylinder flying corridor leading upstairs) when he suddenly noticed his parents were gone.

"Unbelievable." He growled under his breath.

And of course, it was one of the rare days where his parents hadn't linked all of their minds together, leaving their son wholly alone this time. At least, he had some peace, for once.

So this is where the posh people live.

This was also her future home.

Queen. Titania couldn’t get enough of that word. The word that had buoyed her since birth, elevated her into a level higher than everyone else in this planet but one. Her parents had treated her like the special little girl that she was, which admittedly didn’t help with her attitude. But a future queen should be proud, right? She was chosen. She had already proven herself better than everyone else just by being born. At least that was how she saw it.

“Remember, you may be the future queen, but he is to be the future king. Your job is to protect him and listen to him. Follow his lead,” her mother was prattling on.

Titania almost snorted, but that was unladylike, and she didn’t want to incur her parents’ wrath on this important day. Follow his lead and listen to him. Yeah, right.

He’d likely end up listening to her.

She had seen pictures of the High Spheres before, but truly nothing could beat the real thing. The beauty and opulence of the city filled her with awe; the sun glinting upon golden arches and pristine white towers. She flew on her yet still small wings, taking in everything, following her parents to a pair of ornate doors which opened on their own into the Great Hall.

This was the grandest room she had ever been in in her life. For a moment she just looked around, up, and to the sides, not noticing the sole other occupant of the room until the doors closed again behind her. The sound of them clicking shut brought her back to the ground, so to speak, and she hoped her jaw hadn’t been hanging open. Especially when she saw the sulky-looking boy in the room.

Blonde, grumpy looking, bland.

Unimpressive.

Please don’t tell me this is my future husband.

“Are you a servant?” she asked without shame. “Fetch me a cup of tea, please, I am rather parched.”

The doors opening and closing behind him was what caught his attention first.

Then, he saw her.

His eyes observed many things. She was pretty, she had beautiful eyes, her wings were stunning, she acted as if the universe owed, she was smaller than him, she was probably his age, she dressed as if she was already queen and she was the only one in the room but him. What his mind registered: her words and her wings. The rest flew through his brain and out it went. His eyebrows rose slowly, then he snorted, uncaring whether it was considered kingly or not. His wings bristled, their constant beating interrupted shortly in the uncomfortable shudder.

He felt it to the very tip of his membranes.

As he tilted his head, a smile tugged on only one corner of his lips and his eyes narrowed. He wiggled his toes to brush their tips against the cold floor. He chuckled.

"You have legs, you have wings. Do get it yourself, princess I-order-around-instead-of-introducing-myself."

He knew praying to Oberon itself for her not to be his queen would be useless. She clearly thought she was entitled. There was not enough place in the High Spheres for both their egos, he mused, fairly amused.

People could choose their friends and their life partners, so why couldn't he?

"Or maybe you cannot. Are those wings large enough? Shall I call for a carriage?"

His parents wouldn't be proud. He wasn't either. He was considered a hard child, stubborn and prankster, following his parents' footsteps, but he wasn't usually this petty.

She started it.

She frowned at the boy as he snorted at her. And then he actually had the audacity to laugh at her.

She gritted her teeth upon hearing his words. Okay, so maybe not a servant, then. It wasn’t like she really thought he was—she just wanted to see how he would react to judge how much his self-worth was.

“My name is Titania, thank you very much,” she said, crossing her arms in front of her chest. “And my wings are perfectly fine!” she grumbled. She knew they were still small, but someday they would become big and beautiful. Maybe next year. Very soon, at any rate.

“And what about you? Please don’t tell me your skinny little self is my future husband. I would think the planet would have some standards.”

"What if I were?"

He said, taking some altitude to make a small back flip in the air. He looked at her unimpressed, wings beating so fast they were hard to even see.

"I am Oberon, which I believe, answers your question well enough, Titania."

Despite not appreciating her right now, he was smiling still, the young fae rarely moving without his lips curled up.

"You are mean, you know that?"

He said, matter-of-factly, judgment absent of his voice. Maybe he was amused, however, and there was a challenging gleam in the back of his eyes. He was hanging upside down of absolutely nothing, his wings being the only thing that kept his face at the same height than Titania's face.

"They want me to get you to like me, but there is no point in changing who I am to please others."

“Then I shall ask for a refund and an exchange,” she said defiantly, chin forward and arms crossed.

She scowled as he confirmed that he was, indeed, who she wished him not to be. This was going to be a terrible day after all. She had expected him to at least be… more good-looking. Not so skinny.

“So what? You’re weird, you know that?” she challenged him back as he hung upside down in front of her. What kind of future king behaved so childish and odd like this? Surely there must be some mistake.

“For once, we agree,” she scoffed at his last words. “So now what?”

They were supposed to hold hands and be happy together forever.

The chances of that were less than zero. What fools this planet and their parents were indeed.

He chuckled and shook his head, reverting back to a more gravity respecting posture, his feet never touching the ground still. She was funny, maybe, just a little, not much, in her own way. Almighty and haughty as she was. She was ridiculously regal. Like a girl playing a woman stuck in a girl's body. She was ridiculously ridiculous. Yes. That was it.

"I will take being weird over being what you are in a heartbeat. Surely someone made a mistake somewhere to give me a queen such as you."

An arrogant grimace tugged at the corner of his lips, then he looked around them, his shoulders drooping just a bit.

"Clearly, we have been left alone on purpose. I doubt they will let us come out anytime soon."

His wings shuddered in some sort of excitation.

"But, they left us alone in here."

This was the High Spheres. This was supposed to become their castle of sort, but it was also the Archives, the Treasury, the Armory, the Library of Worlds and many more places that were often out of reach for a certain amount of the population.

And yet, here they were.

Where would be the wrong in exploring?

“Then we are in agreement that the planet has terrible taste in future leaders,” she said with a raised chin, daring him to insult her again.

She tried not to scowl as she thought about how long she’d be stuck here with this aggravating weirdo.

But then something he said piqued her interest.

She turned to look back at him, at the gleam of mischief in his eye.

And for the first time, she felt a kinship with him, a way to relate to him that she never thought possible.

She couldn’t help the smirk forming on her lips. “What havoc shall we wreck upon this sacred place?”

They were definitely getting into all the forbidden areas.

If she had scolded him, he would have done everything in his power to call off this arrangement, but as her lips curled into a smirk, he mused over how she could become more interesting if she lost that attitude of hers.

"The High Spheres is composed of many sections and subsections, most of it open to the public. A smaller part of it is reserved for royalty and an even smaller one is usually forbidden if visited for unofficial reasons."

He looked at the long vertical corridor that went as much up as it went down, then looked back at Titania.

"The forbidden areas should be below the ground. How about it?"

He stayed careful in his suggestion, uncertain if this ghost of a truce would last.

“Then below ground it is,” she replied haughtily. She would prefer to go up than down, not looking forward to spending her day in some dark, dank basement, but right now she felt like breaking as many rules as possible.

“The most forbidden area is my choice. Let’s see what kinds of treasures they hide deep in the ground, and if there’s anything we can use to our own advantage.” Her mind begins to turn; she wouldn’t mind stealing some jewels or some powerful artefacts that could bless her with immense power.

She glanced at him, a smirk on her lips. “I hope you’re not afraid of being caught,” she taunted.

"I am the King. Afraid is not a term I would use to describe myself. I hope you are up to the task, Queenie."

He huffed happily and his fast beating wings started to take him toward the vertical tunnel that would take them underground. He knew one of the most forbidden room was probably all the way below and he was curious to see if Titania was easily scared or disgusted. Was the underground really dark and humid? Was it like caves under waterfalls? He never visited here before and he was a little bit giddy at the idea of exploring uncharted corners of his future palace.

The tunnel in itself wasn't extremely humid, though there was a certain warmth coming from the roots and branches forming the wall around them. It wasn't disagreeable, it felt more like a never ending nest, less like what humans would call an elevator.

Oberon flew nearby one of the sides of the wall and extended a hand to touch the roots passing there. Under his fingers, the wood seemed to move as if breathing. He tilted his head, then slowly petted the bark.

"This is strange."

“You’re not the King yet,” she muttered under her breath, though ironically did not protest upon her own title.

She followed him with her wings, her curiosity making her look this way and that as they glided along the tunnel. The place seemed to be filled with roots and branches, and she narrowed her eyes as Oberon inspected one closely. It seemed to be moving. Or rather… breathing?

“Is that thing alive? Careful, you might get your hand bitten or something.”

She kept herself in the middle of it, not too close to either side. She was for touching all the things, definitely, but she also did not want to die a stupid death.

"It seems so."

He kept slowly stroking it for a moment, feeling comfortable being near the roots and branches, as if something within his mind told him it was safe. A pensive smile stretched the child's lips before he finally flew back towards the middle.

"I doubt it would bite. It would also need a mouth."

He grinned, his wings bringing him down slowly again.

"It felt friendly."

He looked down. The tunnel didn't seem to have an end. As if it was going on forever and Oberon was glad he wasn't afraid of heights. If his wings stopped working now, he knew the fall would most likely be painful, maybe even lethal.

"I cannot explain it, you would need to fly closer to it to understand I believe."

It was odd watching him brushing a potentially living root, to be honest. And even though it had no visible mouth, didn’t mean it didn’t have any. Still, she didn’t want him to claim that she was scared, so she flew just a tad closer to it, watching how they rose and fell rhythmically.

She shrugged after watching it for a while. “I guess they seem harmless.”

Maybe flying closer to them would be safer in case she had to grab hold onto something quickly. She couldn’t see the end of the tunnel right now, and though she was confident about her wings, she had no idea what kinds of things might come at them in this unknown place.

“Come on, I’m sure there are more interesting things than breathing trees down here,” she declared boldly, and flew ahead of Oberon, her impatience pushing her forward.

He pouted a little bit, but since she was already ahead of him, she wouldn't have seen it. She was a fiery one. Who seemed to like when things happened. He liked when time was slowly flowing around him.

Apparently, tourism wasn't in today's menu.

He accelerated his descent, then, all of a sudden, his wings stopped beating, pointing up and the small King let out a strange noise as he was seemingly free-falling. Some seconds later, he was laughing. He disappeared from view in the darkness of the long tunnel, then soon his voice couldn't be heard either. Meanwhile, Oberon was looking at different corridors and passages and doors appearing left and right, until he finally expanded his wings again, the transparent membranes resuming their rapid beating.

His feet touched ground mere minutes later.

Stopping the free fall had been good timing from his part and a lucky one.

"Found it!"

He called to the other, his voice still full of laughter and a little bit breathless.

She was surprised when suddenly he flew past her—or rather fell past her—it seemed, because his wings seemed to stop working. Fear and worry clenched in her heart for the first time for this stranger that was meant to be her future companion. But then she heard him laughing, and she accelerated her descent to catch up with him.

She slowed down when she finally saw him again, stopping at the bottom. Relief flooded her, even if she would never admit it.

“Did you just… freefall on purpose? You do know we’re not invincible against head injuries and broken bones right?”

It was an uncharacteristic scolding, and not entirely un-hypocritical given how reckless she herself was, but she never deliberately tempted fate like that. Like him or not, the planet needed him. That was the only reason. It wasn’t like she was worried for him or anything.

Not in the least bit.

"What? Were you worried?"

His eyes were laughing as he looked at her. To see her descend like that, her wings appearing slowly through the darkness, it was pretty great. The wings were maybe small, but he was perhaps envying their elegance. His would make rainbows on surfaces by reflecting the sun, but it wasn't impressive, they held no color. Titania's however... beautiful.

The wings.
Not the girl.

He looked at the only entrance that could be seen, his feet leaving the ground again as he floated carefully toward the small light they could see at the end of the corridor.

"Are you ready?"

Because none of them ever went as far in the High Spheres, he was certain of that.

“Not at all,” Titania huffed, crossing her arms indignantly. “Just concerned about who’s going to have to clean up the mess.”

She thought she saw him eyeing her as well, but she wasn’t sure what it was about. She was used to being admired, though, so she had simply come to expect that kind of reaction from people. And her future king had better damned well adore her too.

She looked at the light awaiting at the end, and took a deep breath. “I’m always ready,” she stated, even as she felt just the slightest hint of trepidation. But hell if she was going to just sit and have tea upstairs while talking to this boy like a grown up. She’d probably fall asleep within the first few minutes.

Oberon advanced forward when she agreed on the continuation of their exploration. He was glad to know she wasn't of those that would abandon easily in the middle of it. It would have been rather boring to have such a queen by his sides.

They were moving through a corridor, their surroundings pitch black. They could see the light in front of them, sure, but otherwise, they didn't know where were the walls, what the floor looked like (Oberon couldn't feel it since he was currently hovering above ground, toes wiggling in the air), and they couldn't be sure of what stood above their heads. A roof? Dirt? Worms? A cathedral ceiling?

The soft buzzing of his wings seemed to echo against the walls - or the ceiling - engulfing them.

Then, when they finally reached the light, nothing.

A wall.
Dead end.

This was rather unsettling to be sure. The darkness, that was. Not knowing what was lurking around them, if something or someone was watching them at this very moment. Her wings beat slower than Oberon’s, the sound soothing her as the only sensation she could feel in this place where seemingly nothing existed.

When they finally reached the end and found the light had simply come from a wall, Titania frowned. “This doesn’t lead anywhere. Are you sure we’re in the right place?”

This time, she floated forward to inspect the wall, touching its surface carefully to see if there was something that could be pressed or slid to reveal a hidden door.

He would feel slightly disappointed if he was certain this was the end. How could it be? It could explain why not many would go down until they touched the floor of the tunnel, but he really didn't want to be the one losing face in front of Titania. He had led them there hoping to find something at the very least restricted.

A wall sounded boring.

As Titania touched it, however, words seemed to form before their eyes, Oberon reading along as the letters appeared one by one in an elegant handwriting.

"Who makes it, has no need of it. Who buys it, has no use for it. Who uses it can neither see nor feel it."

Riddles... He grimaced.

"What is it?" A pause. "Seriously?"

She gasped and stepped back when the words started appearing on the wall upon her touch. As the sentences formed, it became obvious that it was a riddle.

Titania’s brows furrowed as she thought hard. The riddle seemed a tad familiar, though it took a while for her to puzzle it. Obviously it was talking about an object that was made for others. It implied that the person who needed it could not make it themselves. And they also could not see or feel it. The only explanation was that it was something you make for someone who was already gone.

“A Death’s Cradle?” she said, more to herself than to the wall or Oberon.

As the wall appeared to fade in a rain of light, Oberon gave a look to Titania. He hadn't really thought about what the answer could be - he was more or less annoyed by the fact their way had been cut off by some riddle instead of giving them their goal right away - but she seemed... she was quick.

"Creepy."

Was the only word that came to his mind when the answer revealed itself to be the correct one. Perhaps was it some sort of warning?

"But you got it."

He extended his arm, his hand feeling the space where the wall had been before, revealing a long corridor, the floor made of glass and leaving to their imagination the things that could exist beneath their feet. There wasn't enough light to see anything under them, but it didn't feel empty. Even the ceiling felt so far away still.

He looked down, then forward, starting to float through it after taking a deep breath.

"Do you think there will be more of these riddles?"

Titania stepped back in surprise when the wall disappeared, opening the way to them. At Oberon’s comment, she preened, feeling accomplished for having solved the riddle. What would he ever do without her?

She eyed the glass floor uncertainly and followed along, floating behind him, grateful that she didn’t have to step on that fragile looking ground. Another differently tiled room awaited them some distance ahead, this one with colorful tiles separated into neat rows rather than pure glass. She eyed them with the same skepticism when suddenly she dropped to the ground without remembering meaning to land.

Confused, she activated her wings and attempted to fly again, only to get pushed back down as if there were a heightened gravity field on this room.

She eyed Oberon doubtfully. “Guess we have to walk through this one…”

Gravity soon decided flying beings would have to use their legs as Oberon landed on the ground without meaning to. His naked feet probed the fragile looking floor, finding it both warm and cold, as if the fact it was underground kept the warmth from reaching down, but at the same time something, somewhere was warm enough for it to affect the ground.

"Apparently so."

It was quite strange.
And maybe a tad annoying. He wanted to be in the archives more than he wanted to do the apparent riddles needed to get there. Some part of his logical brain knew exactly why it was so protected, but the more childish part of him was getting impatient.

"Is this supposed to keep intruders from entering? Because it would seem to be that we are tracing an easy path towards it. If it is meant as a defense mechanism, it is rather weak."

He slowly walked toward the door, his eyes soon finding the floor and his steps faltering until his feet were mere inches from oddly arranged tiles.

There were letters on the ground as if someone had spilled a bucket full of them. Oberon could see the tiles weren't of equal measurements, freely and artistically placed, but they still looked as if they formed four columns and twelve lines.

"I retract my earlier questioning. There is definitively more of these riddles..."

Titania stared at the letters, feeling her own impatience flaring. She was never one for riddles and puzzles. One was okay, but who knew how many more there would be? She didn’t have time to figure them all out. The letters seemed nonsensical to her.

“Who designed these stupid puzzles anyway? If a child can break past the first door, this one shouldn’t be too hard either… I say we try to hit random letters and see what happens.”

As Oberon paused before them, she stepped carelessly on the first tile bearing the letter Q. A second later it plummeted to the ground below like a trap door, and Titania only had enough time to shriek and reflexively grab the next tile beside it, the one bearing the letter O.

For one horrifying moment, she thought that one was going to fall, too, but it remained solid under her hands.

Still, her feet were now dangling above empty air, and as she looked down, she saw only darkness—an endless abyss.

“Help me!” she shouted at Oberon, terrified at what kind of fate might await her if she fell into that hole.

"I doubt this would be the best..."

Too late.
Titania simply went with her idea and soon, the tile fell under her and Oberon at first could do nothing but watch in horror. She was able to catch herself, however and was now dangling above what he guessed was an empty void. How long was the fall?

It didn't take him long to react and though he wasn't used to run, he dashed to her side, his hands closing on her wrists as he tried to pull her up. Even though he couldn't fly, his wings beating forcefully behind him gave him a small bit more strength.

They both landed on the floor and Oberon took a deep breath.

"Do not do this again." He breathed out, quickly letting go of the wrists he still had in his hands and finally getting up, offering her a hand. "So the 'O' didn't fall right?"

He pondered on the problem a moment, then looked back at her.

"What if we use your idea, but without rushing so much? One of us can walk cautiously on the tiles around the O to see what sticks while the other makes sure nobody falls to their death. It is most probably another riddle, so there is a password that will allow us to go through. 'O' is barely enough of a clue to go on."

He looked at her.

"I will not let you fall."

He promised with a small smile.

His strong grip wrapped around her arms, and she was pulled up back to solid ground. She sat there as she tried to control her breathing, which was still as erratic as her heartbeat. The idea that she’d almost died at such a young age certainly served as a sobering thought, like a douse of cold water that came out of nowhere. These rooms weren’t for children after all and they were not playthings. If she still wished to be queen, she needed to take it more seriously.

She glanced up at Oberon, who was chiding her. She grabbed his hand and got up on her still shaky feet, staring at the O painted on the floor. “Thank you,” she said, with a hint of shame that would not be seen again for the next few millennia. “And yeah, this one seems fine.”

She was uncertain about his method; having just almost plunged to her death and all, she wasn’t particularly eager about trying the exact same thing again. But what choice did they have? Giving up was certainly not an option. If anything, she felt more compelled to beat this room. No one gets to almost kill the future queen and gets away with it.

As if he could read her mind, Oberon promised he would not let her fall, and Titania looked into the eyes of her future consort, feeling the stirring of a new feeling inside her. Like she could depend on him. Like she could trust him.

“Fine, I suppose that’s as good a plan as any. And since as you have demonstrated, you’re clearly strong enough to pull me up, I shall be the one who does the testing.” As much as she’d like to be the lookout, she wasn’t sure she was strong enough or fast enough to catch him should he fall, and she already knew she couldn’t deal with her conscience if he died because of her.

She would just have to trust him. Leaving her life on his hands.

That was an entirely new and scary concept, but the feeling was not altogether bad.

“Any suggestions on which to try next? It’s probably going to follow some kind of line, and since the Q is out, maybe either the W or the B from here.”

Working together and waiting for someone else’s input instead of charging on her own. That was also a new concept.

She was learning a lot of new things today.

He wouldn't admit to being still shaken a bit.
They were currently underground, far from the entrance, from their parents; only the two of them inside what he was certain could be a labyrinth, trying to enter in a room that was still forbidden to them yet. Nobody knew they were here.

He couldn't imagine how he would have felt, what he would have done if Titania had fallen through that hole.

He could still hear the beating of his heart.

Fine.

He looked at her, surprised maybe to see her agree. Was she trusting her life in his hands? Was she just trying to be bold? He didn't know what he felt, but it calmed him down. She wasn't the completely shallow girl of before. She said fine as if stepping on a tile that could give way and kill you was as normal as the next best thing.

She had strength.

He came closer to the tiles, carefully stepping on the 'O' and offering his hand for her to take. Like this, if she fell, she would be easier to catch.

"Would 'W' make any sense of a word? I somewhat doubt mathematics were used here. So 'B' seems the safer bet. Unless they have a bad case of humor and went with 'ow'." His smile was small, because this was serious, but it didn't mean they couldn't try to lighten the mood.

He was used to follow his parents decisions. To be offered the choice and part of the lead felt nice. Like this was actually possible. Like them working together wasn't all that laughable.
