Zafira lay in bed thinking of the recent battle. How could she handle this? It was impossible yet happening. She felt Javier stir. He was awake now.
"Zaf." He murmured "Are you okay?" Zafira shook her head.
"Very." She replied. Ever since Mevolent fought her she dreamed that he HAD killed Javier. The thought alone scared her. Javier pushed a strand of hair from her eyes
"Zaffy I got you okay? You gotta let it go. Mevolent isn't going to get us now. We're strong we will be okay." He soothed. She nodded and he got up.
"Come on let's have breakfast I'll make omelets ok?" Zafira nodded and Javier left. She sat up slowly and put her usual black clothing on. Her Elders robes lay on the chair. She'd put those on later. She wasn't going to the Sanctuary until later because of the recent events. She tried to make her times going to the Sanctuary hard to estimate. At this point she could smell food. Smiling she went downstairs by Javier. He looked up as she came into the kitchen.
"Hey." He finished an omelet and put it on a plate. Her put it on the table
"Eat Zaf." He told her. Zafira sat down and ate. She barely was in reality. She finished eating and then went to watch tv. The weather reported more stormy skies. Typical. She didn't pay attention really to what had happened the past few weeks. Then it hit.
"Javier...come here." Javier came over and took her hand,
"What is it?" He sounded concerned.
"I think...I think we'll be extending our family." She said. Javier grinned
"Seriously?! Zaffy I love you!!" He picked her up and hugged her tightly. The two were happy.
"Zaf i'm proud."
"I know." They stayed locked in their embrace happily. Nothing, not even the war, could make them unhappy.
