When I woke I was wet and cold and felt numb to the bone, the exact opposite from the way I felt this morning. Just the thought of this morning made me think of Robb and thinking of made me remember that he had left me making my heart clench. The sudden urge to throw up had me crawling to the wooden basin near the bed's table.
Tears started falling down my face again as the bile filled the basin and I fell back and rested against the bed my eyes closed and feeling exhausted even though I hadn't done much.
"You told me you would see Maester Steel if you continued to be sick." Robb's voice broke through the silence making me jump and open my eyes to see him perched on his chair by the fire. Just seeing him here in the tent made me feel slightly hopeful that he had forgiven me yet he wasn't looking in my direction just watching the burnt logs with intent focus.
I rose to my feet ignoring my still weak knees and gently rubbed my stomach as it clenched as I stood. I grabbed my dress off the floor and slipped into it before attempting to tie the laces across the front before looking back over at Robb. Laces half-done loosely and my hair falling down my back in a tangle I spoke.
"I'll leave you now your grace." I whispered dropping my head and turning towards the tent flap to leave and find Lily or Mara.
"Where are you going?" Robb asked his voice hoarse as he spoke yet he sounded interested in a reply. I turned to look at him seeing that he had risen from his chair and was looking at me with a frown on his face.
"You want me to leave don't you? I mean you left me earlier. It was clear you no longer want me for a wife so I will leave and get out of your space." I uttered biting back my tears to show him that I was strong and I could handle being away from him. I didn't want our last time together being seen as weak. A small smile plastered on his face and it was that smile that broke my heart. He did want me to leave and he was happy about it.
"You can be really stupid sometimes Evie." He said stepping closer to me that small smile still plastered on his face. His eyes connected with mine and as we stared at each other he seemed to know what I was thinking. "I don't want you to leave, and I didn't leave you either. I was going after Theon. He left while you were speaking. I wanted to make it clear to him that you are mine."
"Oh, I thought you wanted to end this marriage." I cried as a small smile grew on my face at the understanding that Robb wasn't leaving me. A few tears rolled down my face and Robb wrapped me in his arms burying his face in my hair as he did so.
"I told him that he should stay away from you unless you were around people. I may have hit him as well." He mumbled into my hair as his arms grew tighter around me.
"You shouldn't hit people Robb, not unless you're in battle." I scold him but happy at the same time that he did hit Theon. At my words Robb pulled back gazing down at me with glowing eyes.
"You amaze me. I just told you I hit the guy that tried to rape you and you scold me for it. I really did land the perfect woman didn't I?" he asked kissing me lightly as I nodded my head in agreement.
"Yes you did and you better not leave me thinking you've left me again." I warned leaning up to kiss him showing him how much I loved him.
"I won't." he mumbled against me lips bringing our bodies closer as the kiss deepened.
That evening I was in Bran and Rickon's tent; the one that belonged to Catelyn before she left. I was sitting with Rickon on his bed helping him can into his night shirt as Robb sat with Bran at the desk having conversation about moving to Riverrun.
"Did you hear that we will be going to the place where mother grew up?" Rickon muttered concentrating on the arms of his shirt as he tried to pull his arms through. I smiled and nodded at him knowing that he wasn't finished and I wouldn't have time to speak. "Robb says that it's by the water and there is a Godswood in the forest although mother wasn't brought up by our gods."
"Riverrun is old Rickon; many old laces have a Godswood. My father has a Godswood at The Twins yet he doesn't believe in our gods either." I told him helping him pull the furs down so he could slip in the bed. He looked so small lying in the bed furs pulled up to his neck only allowing his head to be seen.
"Oh, does King's Landing have a Godswood then?" he asked placing his arms outside of the covers as he shifted around in the bed getting comfortable.
"I'm not sure Rickon; I've never been this far South. I've only ever been at The Twins." I said honestly to him as I kissed him lightly on the forehead, tucking him into the furs before getting up off the bed and walking over to Bran and Robb at the desk. "I'll be heading back to our tent now Robb."
"I'll walk with you. Do you want me to put you in your bed Bran?" Robb asked looking down at his brother as he stood from his chair. Bran shook his head in reply and continued to read the book he had been telling Robb about as I was settling Rickon to bed. Robb held his hand out for me and we left the tent hand in hand as we strolled down the small army of tents to our larger, more comforting tent.
When we entered the tent, candles already lit and a fire slowly burning - no doubt the work of Lily - we both went to our respected corners and begun to dress or Robb's case undress for bed. It was early, but Robb had planned to get a few hours' sleep before his mother returned and I was just tired from the day's activities; thinking Robb had left me then running around after Rickon.
After I had shuffled out of my dress and slip, I pulled on my thin nightdress and turned to face him. He was staring at me with a slight frown, yet an intrigued look on his face.
"What?" I asked frowning at him like he was to me waiting for a reply. When he just continued to look at me, well more like my chest and stomach I looked down to see what he was looking at. Nothing. I had nothing on my nightdress he was just staring at me.
"Have you got fatter?" he asked tilting his head to the side as he looked me over. My mouth fell open and my eyes bugged out as I looked at him in an outrageous manner.
"What? You think I'm fat? Robb what do you think you're doing? You can't go around telling your wife she's getting fatter! I can't believe you! And you were meant to be brought up in a noble house. I don't think your mother brought you up to say things like that." By the end of my sentences I was blubbering and I couldn't help it as the tears fell.
It was then that Robb decided or noted that he said the wrong thing because I was wrapped in his strong, welcoming embrace.
"Okay, maybe I said that in the wrong way. I didn't mean you have gotten fat, I meant some parts of your body are getting bigger." he stuttered trying to put it out there in a nicer way. I pulled away from him slightly and looked up at him.
"I think I've had a growth spurt, my breasts have been aching and they feel bigger than they were before." I stated looking down at them as I spoke to Robb. If I had been looking at him I would have caught the lustful gaze he was sending my way as he to glanced down at my breast.
"I know, you can't not notice them." he muttered under his breath quietly. It wasn't as quite as he thought because I managed to hear him. I glared up at him and crossed my arms against my chest pulling fully out of his arms. He gave me a soft smile in a way of apologizing but I wasn't going to fall for it.
"You can forget about cuddling up to me tonight." I spat at him as I climbed up into the bed and under the furs. Robb followed my lead and climbed into the bed as well rest up on his elbows as he peered down at me.
"You're the one that cuddles up to me." he pointed out leaning over to kiss my cheek before blowing out the candle beside the bed before settling down under the covers. I relaxed under the furs, arms resting over them watching the shadows from the lit fire dance across the tent for a few seconds before turning on my side and curling up into Robb's side. "Told you."
