He had only just started the first job of his mercenary lifestyle and it was pretty hard. He was beginning to suspect that protecting the princess would be the easy part while balancing all of the customs and not angering any member of the royal family with his own accidental lack of respect would be the biggest struggle for him. Still, though, he was determined to succeed. He would prove his family wrong, he would prove his worth. But right now he needed to go somewhere where he didn't have to sit up straight and keep his fur groomed constantly. It was just a quick escape, he told himself. The sun was setting and Carmenere was with her Kingdom, she'd be safe for the couple of minutes Leo was sneaking away. He'd only gone to the base of the Arcane mountains, a short distance away from Solaris' territory. He just wanted to stretch out his stiff limbs and not have to stay so uptight after spending the day trying to retain his knightly posture. With a sigh, the lion drops the two crossed straps that hold his sword and knives to the ground and slumps down beside them, rolling onto his back so his honey-gold eyes are staring up at the sky, painted with the warm hues of a setting sun.
