Ivan sat in alone in his chambers, watching his Matvey sitting on the mouldy straw and sobbing in the cell Ivan had locked him in. Very gently Ivan set the mirror down and watched the image of the sobbing boy fade. Ivan had found himself in a situation he had never been before. Ivan, for once in his life, didn't know what to do.
He wanted to keep his Matvey locked up so that no one could ever hurt or take him away from Ivan. But keeping Mathieu here, forcing him to stay, that meant that Ivan was hurting him. And what if his grandmother died, out there on the road looking for Mathieu. Ivan wondered if Mathieu would ever forgive him if that happened, if he would ever stop trying to leave.
Ivan was stuck in a place he had never been before stuck between a rock and a hard place. Ivan couldn't let Mathieu go if he did he was scared he would never see Mathieu that the boy would never return to him would leave him alone in this castle, surrounded by only by people who hated him. Iv

Mathieu sat in front of the warm fire Kumaru sitting on his lap while he opened the collection of poems Ivan had recommended him. They were by an ancient Greek poet known simply as Ovid. Ivan had said they were love poems and that he thought Mathieu might enjoy them, opening the book he began to read.
The book fell from Mathieu's numb fingers, his cheeks painted a very dark shade of red. He needed some air lurching to his feet and sending Kumachichi sprawling Mathieu ran to a pair of doors that led out to a balcony where one could read when the weather would permit and took great gulping breaths of the chilly fall air to cool off his flaming cheeks.
Ivan tried not to laugh as he watched Mathieu's reaction to the book he had recommended. The boy's cheeks grew redder and redder until he finally dropped the book and blotted out to take great gulps of air. Finally Ivan couldn't help it he burst out laughing. When the shy innocent boy had asked him if he could recommend any books

Ivan stared at Mathieu, too surprised to move. To say that he was stunned would be an understatement. No one had ever willingly come near him after he had threatened them the way he had Mathieu.
Mathieu began to fidget, should he have come? Ivan was glaring at him. He was about to apologise and flee Ivan's seemingly angry expression when the large beast moved to the side ad motioned him inside. Cautiously Mathieu entered Ivan's chambers.
"Wh..where do you want me to-" Mathieu's question was cut off as Ivan wrapped his two massive arms around the boy.
For a moment Mathieu froze memory from this afternoon still fresh in his mind. But after a few minutes he slowly began to relax.
As Ivan felt Mathieu slowly relax in his grip, he held the sweet boy closer, he never wanted to let him go. But all things must end, so Ivan slowly relaxed his grip prolonging the separation as long as he possibly could.
"No! No! NO!" Arthur hollered as he struggled out of Francis grip. "I SAID NO!"

Mathieu was outside playing fetch with Kumajiro. He couldn't move around too much. Ivan had forbid him from moving the leg to much in case he worsened the injury. Mathieu thought that it was ridicules and that they should be more worried about Ivan's wound but Ivan wouldn't listen to him. He thought it was sweet and hoped Ivan would be careful about his arm and kept a fairly close eye on him to make sure he was.
Mathieu looked up at the balcony that led into one of the many sitting rooms. Ivan stood there watching him. Mathieu blushed and quickly looked away.
Francis stood on the railing by his master. He was worried about the princes growing attachment to his son. He was all so worried about the looks that Matthew was beginning to give the prince when he thought no one was looking. Ever since Ivan had saved him last night, Mathieu had been more comfortable around Ivan. Matthew was less scared and more willing to stand up to the prince.
Francis sighed all he could do now was

Back at the small village things were about to take a turn for the worse.
Mathieu's Grandmother sat staring at the door. She had been watching the door for her grandson's arrival since about 11 o'clock that morning and now it was 7 o'clock in the evening. She sighed what was taking him so long? Mathieu should have been home by now!
A knock on her door, startled her out of her thoughts. Could it be Mathieu? No he wouldn't knock.
"Come in." she called maybe it would be the old man from the book store with news of why
The door opened to reveal the old man from the book store.
"Ahh good evening Ma'am," the old man greeted her. "I was just wondering if you had gotten any news from your grandson while he's visiting his father."
The feeling that something was wrong that had been niggling at the back of her mind since shortly before Mathieu left exploded.
"No, he...he told me you were having him deliver another book!" the old women exclaimed.
"What?" the old man asked confused, why w

Ivan paced the room waiting for Mathieu to arrive for super. He had been waiting a good 15 minutes and STILL the boy was not here!
"Little Matvey is very late, Da." Ivan said his voice sickly sweet.
Tino looked up from where he had been trying to comfort a desolate Francis who was slumped in the corner his back to the room.
"Well it has been a rather traumatic day for him." Tino said trying to calm the angry prince down.
"Then Matvey should eat, it will make him feel better" Ivan smiled, looking even more terrifying than usual.
"Maybe he should be allowed to eat in his room just for tonight, while he settles in and adjusts." Tino said in a calm low voice. "After all he just learnt that his father was turned into a candle holder."
"Little Matvey should join me for supper it will help him adjust faster."
"ADJUST FASTER?" Francis cried turning around to glare at the beast. "My son has just become your PRISONER and learned that everyone he knew from his childhood is now some talk

Mathieu stared up in horror at the beast who had just declared that he would be his "guest" for the next little while. A little while that he didn't have! He couldn't stay here! His grandmother expected him back in two days! He all so had to get them the money for the taxes! And he doubted he would get any here!
His vision began to blur as these thoughts ran through his mid a mile a minute, his breathing got shallower and shallower as the panic filled him, until suddenly his world went black.
Ivan giggled looking at the boy kneeling on the ground before him. Watching the obvious emotions crossing over the boys face, fear horror and finally panic before he fainted. Ivan giggled again looking at the boy's prone form.
Francis's thoughts however were not so happy and even more panicked than his son's. He couldn't let the prince just do whatever he wanted he wanted to his sweet Mathieu! His patit lapin! What could he do? How could he save his son? Suddenly a
