A Royal Piece of Harmony - Chapter 11 (Part 2)

"You look like crap," Eric said when he met up with Shane on the way to breakfast.
"You look like crap," Eric said when he met up with Shane on the way to breakfast.

"You don’t look so hot yourself," Shane responded with a lopsided grin. "Giselle?" He asked with a slight raise of his eyebrow. "Rose?" Eric asked back, mimicking his expression. Shane chuckled half-heartedly and gave a shrug with his eyes low. "Always." He looked at his brother again. "When did you talk to Giselle?"
"This morning. I accidentally let the word "dating" slip and it turns out she wants that too."

Shane’s expression lit up. "Hey!" He lifted his arm and Eric slapped his hand in a high five automatically. Shane swung his arm around his brother’s neck and pulled him a bit lower to his height. "Now that is the best news I’ve had all week!" He planted a fat kiss on Eric’s head, causing Eric to pull out of his grip. "Finally!" Shane brought his fists half up and looked to the sky in gratitude. "Ah, let’s have a ceremonial bonfire and burn that repulsive bride file too-nite!"

Eric shook his head.

"Hold on. I still have to figure some things out with Giselle." His expression turned solemn. "I need to see her, Shane. And we need to find out where this is heading. I can’t do long distances. She’s too important to risk it."

The joy in Shane’s eye diminished as well. He gave a nod, completely understanding.
"You were right, it’s just like my eighteenth birthday," Eric said.
Shane let out a bleak laugh. "I told you, you don’t know what’s good for you. Good thing you’ll always have me around."
Eric grinned.


Just a short paragraph I wanted to add because I really love the banter between the two brothers :)
I also wanted this to be more of an author's note to say thank you all for sticking with me through this story and for having the patience.

Thank you to all the people who commented such lovely things and made me smile after every post.

I'm sorry about all the waiting but I will be posting the last few chapters and ending off the story - hopefully by now they're all up :)

Miha - Thank you for being such an amazing cheerleader. Your comments have made me smile and laugh so much and motivated me to keep writing. You're incredible!

Monicka: lol. Thanks, girl. I hope you're satisfied with the ending :))
