Lily walked into Lord zero's office, she was concerned and almost scared of what Lord zero would say or do, "you, wanted to see me sir" Lily said nervously, "yes, sit down" Lord zero replied. Lily took a seet across from Lord zero's desk "what did you want to say?" Lily asked, Lord zero sighed underneath his breath, scared about what he was about to say "Lily i, I'm sorry, you were right, what you said yesterday, you were right" Lord zero confessed, seeming weary. Lily looked almost stunned and amused by what Lord zero had just said, was she finally getting through to him? "w-well, this is sudden" she replied, If what Lord zero said is true, then does that mean this will be the day she finally gets what she'd wanted for years Lily hoped. "look what I'm trying to say is, i um, i..." Lord zero was visably almost distraught, Lily could sense the tension from him "Lord zero, what happened yesterday, i let my emotions get out of control, i didn't mean to cause you any distress" she apologised. Lord zero looked up at Lily "well you kinda did" he replied, for a moment they were both silent, the tension in the room began to build up, Lily and Lord zero both sensed this, and they both were at a loss for words, after a few minutes Lord zero finally broke the silence, "what do you want Lily? Just tell me what you want" he asked. Lily remained quiet for a moment, she knew what she wanted, she cared about Lord zero, but this was an opportunity she couldn't miss "you know what I want sir, its what I've always wanted" she responded, she was once again trying to suppress her emotions. Lord zero didn't seem surprised by what Lily said, but wasn't bothered by it "look i, i don't know if, if I can, love you Lily" Lord zero said, Lily thought to herself for a brief second, she wanted Lord zero to love her, above anything else "guess I was still right then, you can't feel love" she claimed, sounding like a smug child. Lord zero looked Lily in the eye, he had a hint of despair in his eye, "really? Because let me tell you, I'm thirty one years old, and I've only ever had the luxury to feel love once, and, that was forced, not what you would call love" he replied. Lily seemed surprised, she didn't expect to hear that from him "forced?" she asked with shock in her voice, Lord zero nodded "it was a long time ago, i came from a rich family and, well they wouldn't stop trying to get me married" he continued, "m-married!" Lily said. "that's how it was back in those days" Lord zero replied, he seemed annoyed about talking about it, "but that's not the point, look i...i, how can I say this?" he continued, "just say it" Lily ordered. Lord zero hesitated, he didn't want to say anything out of fear, but eventually overcame it "since yesterday i, haven't been able to stop thinking about you" he said, Lily seemed amused and happy by what she just heard "is that so?~" Lily responded, "not like that, more like a burden" Lord zero sighed. Lily felt embarrassed and looked down "sorry sir" she apologised, "its alright" Lord zero replied "also I...i took in to consideration of what you said, and..."Lord zero paused, he was scared to continue, Lily looked up at Lord zero, her eyes widened slightly, her face began to brighten up and she began to blush "d-do, do you mean..." Lily felt her heart racing, her mind began to operate at a thousand miles an hour. Lord zero began sweating as his face turned soft red "if, if you'll forgive what I said yesterday, and if, this is what you really want, then I uh, would consider, being your partner, so to speak" Lord zero finally confessed, Lily's face turned a bright red as a massive smile crossed her face and her eyes widened even more "YES!" she shouted, she rose from her seat "yes Lord zero thank you thank you thank you so much! You have no idea how much that means to me!" she continued, Lord zero was taken back slightly by her reaction "uh, o-ok" he said, Lily gasped quickly and leaned in close to Lord zero "Lord zero, please say you love me!" she said "w-what?" Lord zero replied sounding shocked "i need to know its real! Say you love me, and say it like you mean it" she ordered. Lord zero hesitated, he honestly didn't want to say it, but with how far he had come he wouldn't go back now "i...love you" he said hesitantly "no!" Lily said, "say it like you mean it" she continued, "...i love you" Lord zero repeated, "NO! Not like that!" Lily snapped again, she reached forward and grasped Lord zero by his suit "say it like you mean it, like it was the last thing you were ever going to say!" Lily demanded. "i...i, i love you Lily" Lord zero said, this time sounding like it meant everything in the world, Lily's eyes began to shed tears, she smiled as tears of joy slowly ran down her face "thank you, thank you so much" she said, "i, i love you" Lord zero repeated, and continued to repeat, "huh, Lord zero, are you ok?" Lily asked. Lord zero continued to repeat those words over and over again, eventually crying slowly began to accompany them, he continued to cry and repeat his words, looking into Lily's eyes, "Lord zero, i love you too, I always have, I love you so much" she said as she also began to cry, Lily and Lord zero looked each other both in the eye, at this moment they both knew what each of them was thinking. There was silence for what seemed like a hour, they both just kept staring at each other, until Lily finally broke the silence "Lord zero, i...", "Lily..." Lord zero responded, they didn't need to use words this time to understand each other, at once they both broke the silence as they called out each others names and kissed each other, Lily pushed the desk that separated them aside, being a demon had its perks. Lily and Lord zero continued to kiss each other in passion, Lily tensed and jumped slightly, feeling where Lord zero's hand had just slipped, but she didn't mind, she relaxed and continued to make out with Lord zero, Lord zero no longer felt any fear or nerves, he was completely at peace with his decision. At this time they both completely understood each other, Lily finally knew what Lord zero was fully capable of, and Lord zero understood once more, what a demons heart was capable of doing.
