Why? The man thought, casting his eyes downward. The usually confident lion was now engulfed with a strange and strong flurry of emotions, ones he had never felt before.
Leona felt so...helpless, shattered, angry, guilty-
No, this wasn't the usual him. This isn't how Leona acted. The trademark tired and smug look on his face was nowhere to be spotted, instead its place was taken by an expression that seemed to be a mixture of sadness...and guilt.
But why was he wearing that expression? What happened to the usual Leona? Why were his eyes wavering so much? Just what was he feeling and why was he feeling all of this?
Ah, but the answer was apparent, wasn't it? He was looking at you, his lover, his little herbivore...now holding hands with someone that wasn't him. You smiled at them, swinging your intertwined hands back and forth, laughing merrily at something from time to time at something your...lover was saying.
Ah shit, it hurt.
Your smile, your precious smile that made you look ethereal, the smile he swore to protect silently...was being pointed at someone else ⎯ someone that wasn't Leona.
He continued looking at you, while questioning the entire time.
Just where did I go wrong?
Did he not do enough? Did you not see the way he looked at you ⎯ so softly, eyes filled with so much love that anyone could see that ⎯ did you not get it? Or what about how he placed a quick kiss on your temple every time you parted ways, of course, it was always followed by a sarcastic remark ⎯ in hopes that you wouldn't notice just how hard he had fallen for you.
But then where did he go wrong? Did he not give you enough attention? Affection? Were you unhappy with him?
Oh, he felt strange...
But as far as he recalled, he hadn't seen any trace of sadness on your pretty face. Leona had a discerning eye, so he was sure of this. It had to be something else...because he was sure that you were happy with him-
Who was calling his name?
Who was it?
Suddenly, his eyes flew open.
'Oh, thank goodness! I thought you were never going to wake up!' Leona heard someone say, turning his head to the side, he was met with...your eyes?
Wait, what were you doing here?
A surprised expression came over the lion's face, one which didn't go unnoticed by you. 'Love, what's wrong?' You questioned, putting a palm on his cheek as you made him look at you. Your eyes peered into his, holding nothing but concern.
You hummed, 'did you have a nightmare?' All the while, he never answered and just stared at you, reading an indescribable expression.
'What are you doing here?'
The words that you were about to speak got caught in your throat and a confused expression came over your face, 'what do you mean?' It seemed as if he couldn't believe you, for Leona continued to stare at you in unhidden surprise, anger and...sadness.
'Are you kidding with me right now, ___?' He started, brows furrowing as he stared at you, 'I asked what you were doing here. Tch, weren't you in love with them? Why come back to me?'
You were confused before, yes. But the confusion you felt now was unimaginable. A small frown was present on your face as you searched Leona's face for any answers. But he only stared at you, with anger.
Ah, then it clicked.
'You stupid cat!' You tackled him, and were thankful that you both were sitting on the ground because it must have hurt otherwise. 'You just had a dream, silly.'
'What?' Leona questioned in confusion as you both fell backwards, with you on top of him. But other than getting an answer, your laughter filled the air surrounding you two. 'Oh, goodness...you looked so cute. What did you dream about, Leona?' You asked him, an adoring smile on your face as you looked at him, eyes glittering with mischief.
'I-' Leona began, but you cut him off.
'Let me guess...you dreamed of me falling out of...love with you? And that I was dating someone else?' It seemed as if your guess was correct because your lover turned his face to the right, brows furrowed. You chuckled, then kissed his nose, which had the flustered lion turning to face you again.
'Something like this would never happen.' You told him, the previous mischievousness in your gaze was now replaced with adoration. 'I would never fall out of love with you, okay?'
Leona's mind finally processed what was happening and he chuckled at how ridiculous this situation was, 'you are acting like I will let you go, herbivore.' He was conveying everything he felt for you through his gaze, as if a predator was holding its prey captive.
You were silent for a while, just admiring how beautiful he looked.
'Hmm, I am not letting you go either, Leona.'
Another chuckle escaped his lips, 'yeah, yeah, whatever.'
Yet even if his words seemed dismissing, the love in his eyes and tone couldn't be missed.
Ah, what a ridiculous situation...
