A year had gone by and thing were much different as Lylla predicted, Rocket was distant from her and one day she'd had enough!
She found him and grabbed his hand and yanked him inside
"Lylla...now's not a good time"
"THEN WHEN IS!" She screamed
Rocket was shocked when he saw that she'd started to cry
"You...never...act like this! What going on? Why won't you tell me?! Over the past YEAR you've avoided me, distanced yourself from me. You don't kiss me anymore, you don't hug me anymore and worse...you don't even say I love you!"
Then Lylla screamed something that Rocket wished he'd never heard "DON'T YOU LOVE ME ANYMORE?!" Then she relaxed herself and whimpered "If anything's wrong, i want to help! I really do! Just don't push me away!"
Lylla hugged Rocket and cried her heart out, Rocket then muttered two words "Your dad". In an instant Lylla got the hint, her father had done this! She got angry with herself from blaming Rocket for this, how could've she not known?!
She didn't waste anytime, she wrapped her left hand around his waist and right around his neck. "Uh...Lylla?"
"Just shut it!" Lylla giggled as she leaned in and kissed Rocket affectionately, she begged for entry for her tongue and Rocket allowed it. They started to french kiss for a long time, before pulling away for air.
"Don't worry about my dad...I'll handle him, you just keep loving me"
"Sure..." Rocket smirked
The two held hands as they went outside, Rocket then grabbed Lylla in a ferocious hug and kissed her.
She purred, she knew he loved it when she did it. Rocket didn't stop and Lylla didn't want him to, he hadn't done it in so long. How she missed him alot, the feel of his fur, the warm sensation and taste of his lips when it came into contact with hers, his smile and his kind heart. She returned the hug and pulled him closer, smooching and caressing him with affection. Little did she know that her father had just come out from his meeting, he was walking down the barracks and looked on the hill where the two lovers was. He came closer and his eyes widened as he saw Lylla and Rocket entangled in romance. He saw a smile form on her lips as she made another kiss with Rocket, he was angry.
How dare this...this runt ignore his instructions to stay away from her! He backed away as he saw them part, he got the shock of his life when he heard her say "Rocket...my love. I love you more than anything in this world...even my own dad."
Rocket's eyes widened as he glanced around "Sush! your dad might hear us!" Rocket whispered, but he heard it. He was about to make a move when Lylla spoke again
"What did I say? I told you to leave my father to me...you just keep loving me, like you've always done. Rocket...I'm angry at my father. How dare he...he just shows up one day and dictates who I can and cannot love! Besides...even when he was alive it was all 'Lylla go away' or 'Lylla not now' or 'Lylla why'd you get a B in your studies you ungrateful brat!' or my favorite 'Lylla...I've got no time for you. I love you but I'm busy'.
When they were gone, only you and Uncle Wal looked out for me, LOVED me. WHERE WAS HE WHEN I WAS IN PAIN! WHERE WAS HE WHEN I NEEDED LOVE AND ATTENTION?! NOWHERE! THAT'S WHERE!" Lylla shouted as she started to cry and sob, tears flowing down from her eyes like a waterfall of misery.
"I'm sure he had his reasons...but, that's not how a father should act....he sounds like a jerk" Rocket said "No offence" He continued
Lylla chuckled "Nah...I needed to hear that". Lylla's father heard all of this and got very angry at Rocket 'He's turning my own daughter against me! And Lylla has no idea what she's talking about! I've always been there! and how dare Rocket call me a jerk!...NO! I DO NOT APPROVE OF THEM!' he thought to himself.
"I love you Rocket...I care deeply about you, my mother knows that you're a good person. She sees you like how I do...I only wish my dad could too. You are the love of my life Rocket, and you mean everything to me! Every damn thing! and if something were to ever happen to you...."
Lylla cut herself off and cried in Rocket's arms, Rocket hugged her back and shed tears of his own. "Lylla...nothing will happen to me. We will always be together...no matter what". Rocket knew that last line wasn't true, if her father ever knew about this conversation...he was done for and would never be allowed to see her again. At which point he'd be better off dead. As he cared so deeply for Lylla. He'd only hope that the sadness in his heart would fade...but it didn't, he didn't want Lylla to find out how he really felt. In truth, he knew that in Halfworld, a guy had to his girlfriends father's approval in order for them to see each other, but with all that has happened...Rocket knew that would never with Lylla forever.And that haunted him. It would be something that would remain with him forever.
He then gave her another tender, soft and warm kiss. One on the cheek and the other on her delicate lips. "Shall I walk you home?" Rocket asked
"Why yes my sweet little teddy bear...my valiant knight" Lylla smiled.
They held hands and walked home together
