Now. Never. #AtoZChallenge2015
Nolan sat with an air and confidence worthy of his standing as the Prince. His fingers caressed the smoothness of a throne that would never be his. “Are you sure about this?” Nate asked from his post in front of Nolan.
Nolan cocked his head with a small smile. “For you, my love, I would give up the world.” And in a way he was, he was giving up his title, his throne, his birthright for the man he loved standing before him.
“You don’t have to.” Nolan jumped and looked to see his younger brother, Norcross, standing off to the side looking from him to Nate. “The throne is yours brother no matter what father says. I could be your place holder.”
Nolan stood and crossed the distance between him and his brother in a few strides. He pulled the younger man into a hug. “You always wanted to rule, not I.” He kissed his brother’s cheek and released him with a clasp over his bicep.
“When I am King you will always have a place here.” Norcross said with such finality Nolan bowed.
“You will make a great King.” Nolan stood up and went to Nate giving the man a kiss. “Shall we?”
Nate offered his arm and Nolan took it. Whatever came next at least they’d be together and had the support of his brother the future King of Nacre.
