7 AM in Yve's hospital bed

--

The sun is shining brightly as its rays touch Yve's face. She turned to other side to protect her eyes from it and expecting to hug someone. Contrary to it, she didn't feel anything or anyone beside her. She continued to feel the surrounding but nothing. In defeat, she opened her eyes to look at her bedside but there was no one.

Yve tried to stand up and walk towards the other parts of the room but then she lost her balance as pain and dizziness took over her. This caused Yve to depend on the bedside table dropping some water bottles. The ruckus was heard by the four gentlemen on the living room and they came running to Yve's hospital bed to see what happened.

Edward, Chrysthe and Slane remained standing at the edge as Vince helped Yve to stand up.

"Are you okay?" Vince asked Yve as he guided her to sit on the edge of the bed.

"Yeah. Just a little pain and dizziness."

"Do you want me to ask for pain reliever?"

"There's no need. It's just a little pain. I can still tolerate it."

"But…"

"Vince", Yve said as she gently squeezed Vince's arm.

"This pain is from the stitches as the anesthesia fully subsided. The dizziness, it was from my mistake. I abruptly stood up to....." The Yve blushed as she saw the three men behind Vince.

"To what?" Vince still looks at her with a worried look on her face.

Yve leaned forward just inches away from Vince's chest to hide from other people's gaze and whispered, "To look for you because you weren't beside me when I woke up. I got worried."

Hearing another sweet confession from her queen and seeing her cute reaction first hand, resulted in a smile on Vince's face. He wanted to kiss Yve once more but knowing that there are 3 pairs of eyes looking at them, he controlled his inner self and kissed Yve on her forehead.

"We were on the living room discussing some important matters." Vince explained.

This time, Yve looked at Vince seriously. Knowing Vince's personality, he will not let things go out of control once more. Plus, he introduced two new people last night. When they used to play games, introduction of new teammates meant a new strategy and a different approach for an effective counter attack.

"You don't need to know it for now." Vince said. He hugged Yve in an attempt to divert her attention.

"Vince you know this will not work. I know that you are doing so many things secretly for me." Yve said as she removed Vince's arms around her to intertwine his hands with hers.

"I truly appreciate it and I'm thankful for it. But I don't want to be your Queen that needs so much protection. I want to be your partner that can fight. Just like how we used to in the games. I may not be as good as you but I think I can still help, right?"

Vince didn't answer Yve's question immediately. It wasn't like he doesn't believe in Yve. He know that she can fight as seen on how she's doing well with the staff at SkyMu. He was just worried that knowing the new information they have right now is not the appropriate time. He never thought of keeping anything from her.


When Vince didn't give any response, Yve was about to take it as a rejection. She was to release Vince's hands when Vince's tightened his grip this time.

"I fully know that. It's just I was thinking that now is not the right time because of your health. But if you fully insist, you can sit with us and listen." Vince said.

Yve was very delighted with the idea and hugged Vince forgetting the people looking at them. By this time, the three people turned their backs and walked back to the living room.

"Secondo, are we really going to tell Ms. Yve everything?" Slane asked with a concerned look on her face.

"Well, that's what she wants. She may look fragile right now but she's tougher than you think." Edward answered.

"Yeah, Slane. Stop being a worry wart. She's the lady that Primo chose after all." Chrysthe said with excitement.

"Remember Vince's instructions not to call him Primo or me as Secondo when Yve is around. " Edward reminded them.

"Roger that!" The two men exclaimed.

"But, Yve, promise me one thing before we go to the living room." Vince said.

"What is it?"

"If the pain becomes intolerable, you will immediately tell me and we will stop the discussion temporarily, okay?"

"Yes, sir!" Yve answered and raised her right hand in a salute.

"Can you stand up?" Vince asked as he put one of Yve's arm around his shoulder.

"I think so." Yve said and with the other half of her weight depended on Vince, she stood up.

Vince's right arm is around her waist to support her while his other hand is holding the IV drip way above Yve's height. Both of them walked slowly and carefully towards the living room. Since this was Yve's first time to stand and walk around the room, she was busy looking around leaving Vince in-charge of walking towards the couch. Even as she sat down the couch, she was still observing the entire space, from an extra bed in one corner to the dining area, the flat screen television in front of them and one small door which she guesses as the comfort room.

"Yve are you okay?" Edward asked this time.

"Yeah. It's just this room is really big." Yve said and ended her room scan throwing a death look at Vince.

"What? Why are you looking at me like that?" Vince innocently asked.

"Why did you get an expensive room?"

"Anything for my Queen. You know that I only want the best for you." Vince declared and without any warning, he kissed Yve on the lips. He didn't even care that there were people watching. He has been trying to suppress his feelings.
