Into the Mists by DarkPhoenixGoddess10
“Anne, I want to tell you this: I love you and only you. I don’t know why, but I do. I do not regret our marriage, that I’m sure. Whatever the outcome of this war, I want you to remember that. Promise me Anne, you will wait for me.”
With tears in her eyes, Anne nodded against his chest. “I promise. I will faithfully wait for your return.”
She removed her emerald ring from her finger and placed on his hand. She kissed his hand and the ring dearly.
Richard held her until dawn.
