Lord zero tossed and turned in his bed, grunting and clenching the edge of the mattress "dammit Lily" he grunted. His mind kept flashing back to that moment with Lily in his office, it now dawned on him like an illness "what did you do to me?" he said, rushing from his bed to the bathroom to splash his face with cold water. Lord zero looked in the mirror, he looked tired and worn out, he hated these emotions, he hated them since he was young. He believed that they would cause weakness, he had to stay strong, he's been like this for so long, he doesn't know how to be anything else. Lord zero rubbed his eyes and sighed, he hated the thought of loosing Lily, she had been by his side for years, but what was he supposed to do? The next day Lord zero was in no rush to get to work, just as well, he was in charge of everything, not a single person was above him. As he drove to work, sweat dripped down from his head to his hands, he wanted to turn back, but not now, he had never left his work once, and he never will. As Lord zero sat in his office, he tried to calm himself down "right, no nonsense, nothing stupid" he thought to himself. Lord zero turned his attention to a knock at his office door "come in" he replied, a green haired succubus walked in holding a cup of coffee, she hesitated slightly "Lord zero, you looked tired this morning, so I thought I'd make you some coffee" she said. Lord zero thought to himself for a second "oh, thank you Lace" he replied, Lace brought the coffee over to Lord zero, she was one of the more friendly and considerable worker's "is there anything else I can do for you?" Lace asked, "no, that's all I need, thank you Lace" he replied. Lace nodded her head and began to walk away "there's no love potion in this coffee is there?" Lord zero asked, Lace looked back with a confused look on her face "no sir" she replied, she was now concerned about Lord zero, the only time he would ask questions like this were in times of emergency "is everything OK sir?" she asked, "yes I've, just been on edge recently" Lord zero replied. Lace still seemed concerned, but she knew what Lord zero was capable of, he was more than capable of taking care of himself, right now her real concern was her best friend Lily, "sir, is everything OK with Lily? she's been acting, strange since yesterday" Lace asked, Lord zero thought to himself, but eventually had an answer "yes, she's just, having a temper tantrum over yesterday" he said sounding convincing. Lace was still concerned about her friend, but she knew better than to question Lord zero, he wasn't the sort of person to be so forgiving, "if that's all sir?" she asked, "yes, that's all Lace, thank you" Lord zero replied, Lace nodded her head and proceeded to leave Lord zero's office. The hour's of the day passed by, and Lord zero had just about managed to remain calm and collected throughout the day, he was almost desperate to distract himself from Lily and the thought's that accompanied her, he was now at a crossroads, he had two choices, feel this way and remove Lily from his work operations, or embrace how he felt and go back on almost everything he had been telling himself for years. He had made his decision, Lord zero contacted the secretary and called for Lily, he was going to set things straight with her, now or never, his heart began to race in his chest, sweat dripping from his head, this was the most nervous he'd felt in a long time, he had finally made his final decision. And was now awaiting Lily.
