My father protected his father, thought Lief. Now I will serve and protect him.

He stretched out his hands, the belt hanging between his fingers, but felt a strange reluctance to let go.

Dain reached out to take the Belt, but still Lief hesitated.

What's wrong with me? Wondered Lief as Dain took the belt and fastened it around his waist. Why don't I want Dain to be King?

What use would a King have for the son of a blacksmith? He could never want you. You will never have a chance with him. Not now that he's King.You're Losing Him.

Jasmine turned to him, smiling. "Isn't this wonderful?"

What do you think?

There isn't any enough slash in this fandom. I know this isn't very, but more will follow.
