He looked at his Queen and smiled. He kissed her lips gently and then went over to Helios. "Time to talk my son."
The King sat down on his thrown as Helios rose, kneeling low first then standing straight to talk. Helios began and told the King where he had been and what had happened to him. Helios didn't leave out one single detail.
In return, the King forgive him for his absence and told him everything that had been going on during Helios' absence. The King watched as Helios' face grew dark and solemn with each detail the King told him.
Helios looked up to the King with heavy eyes and nodded gravely. He didn't know what to say in response. This was all so overwhelming.
