Sometimes a lover’s comfort is the most important.
Hmm, summoner, this isn’t really a question which is really to answer.
I and Tryndamere have known each other for a long time, really. We weren’t more than acquaintances for quite a long time, him simply being a mere person who I occasionally saw roaming about while hunting, sometimes stopping by to have a small chitchat. I did not know much more about him aside from his barbarian heritage and position as the king of the united tribes, nor did I really care for him either. But I can’t deny that… He seemed rather curious about me, ever since we saw for the first time.
Even though he might have been curious… He wasn’t too polite, as one probably can except. Women weren’t really in the first position on his respect list, especially when it came to those outside his people, and… The barbarian tribes never got along with others too well anyway. So I thought it would be better to just let is pass by.
But, not too long after I had lost my closest friends and companions to the assault in the blizzard, he actually wanted me to sit down with him for a talk. And that’s really how we became more like… Friends. I remember spending a lot of time in the barbarian villages, getting more friendly with them and their culture.
And, one must admit, that was some of the most enjoyable time of my life. It was a good time off from the Frost tribe’s demand of formality. It was really laid-back and really, the biggest inspiration for unifying Freljord. To see a bunch of people who were completely divided, with really different cultures and even languages, reforged by a single man, who showed everyone what he’s capable of.
And… When Mauvole passed away, barbarians’ approach for the Ice Dervish to show their respect for the old princess, the official approach on peace… It did give us some more time to actually get to know each other, as he was staying in Freljord during that time, I remember spending a lot of the evening time simply talking to him. Despise our differences, I can remember myself being drawn to him because he still has a healthy attitude towards life and people. Something you must appreciate in a person.
During that time, I could say that I probably fell in love with him. He became to really be someone I could trust in, and talk to without any kind of problems. He was one of the only people I could trust. And he didn’t seem to mind the attention too much either, which was all… Good. Perhaps.
Chasing the Noxians off from barbarian grounds, the success did give me some courage to ask him to be the king standing next to me when ruling Freljord, with the promise of giving his people a safe home to live and work in. And the fact that he accepted the proposal without any kind of problem gave us a real chance to think about our relationship, and where it could go.
And the rest? It’s history, but I believe that you know where it has lead us to, no? Of course, our relationship isn’t perfect, we still have different ideas and come from different cultures, which does cause fights… But what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger, right? He is a lovely man. And I’m most glad that I have him to rule Freljord with me.
The Frost Archer smiled softly while tapping her chin. It hasn’t been a decision she has yet had to regret.
(( Remake of an old ask. ))
