The small girls hand was warm in his as they walked side by side through the Kilate city. It was just starting to get dark and never before had he ventured into the city with her before. His grey eyes glanced down at her curious face, watching as she took in the sight. Her five year old brain was excited by the new scenery and he hated that he couldnt enjoy that sight of watching her take everything in. He closed his eyes and continued leading them through the streets. They were almost there, only a block or two.
Gently, Benedict steered the girl into a small alley way, wanting to speak to her before they reach their destination. She followed without a single objection, looking up at him with her murky green eyes filled with affection. Her eyes brought sorrow to him, but he did not let it show as he knelt down on the ground to get to her level, looking straight at her.
Were almost there, He told her softly.
