Lee Sin: Ionian Fervor – 22

24 Aug

Sorry guys, my editor is currently working, so this one will be posted tonight, just in a bit!

The woman from his past invited Lee Sin in and offered him tea. He assented and asked where her parents were. She responded, “They went for a night out. I came to see them myself. So honey, what brings you back here after all this time?” Though her tone was playful and light, Lee Sin knew he had seriously hurt her emotionally, and chose his words carefully. In the end he decided to tell her the full truth.

“Caitlyn, I’m sorry, I didn’t come back to reconnect. Honestly, I was too ashamed of what I did to face you then, and too ashamed that I didn’t face you to come back.” She dropped her smile and her tone became much more formal, her Piltover accent coming out slightly stronger. “Alright. Now we’ve established why you’re not here, but that’s not what I asked.” Lee took a deep breath and carried on, “Ionia is under attack from Zaun. We are losing, and desperately need reinforcements. I know you carry a lot of clout around here, and I was hoping I could convince you to help us.”

The Sheriff of Piltover eyed him thoughtfully but said, “Why haven’t we heard any word of this?” Lee Sin looked slightly surprised and said, “I suppose it’s because Karma didn’t take the invasion seriously at first. She was having an affair with Talon, the new leader of Noxus.” Caitlyn raised her eyebrows and said, “Well this is very serious. I have no doubts that Piltover will lend aid. Our countries form a bit of a protection for each other in these times.”

Lee Sin nodded and said, “Thank you. When can we see the board of directors for Piltover?” Caitlyn looked at the clock on her wall and said, “They’re likely finishing up for the day. I think it would be wise to wait for the morning because we need to prepare what we intend to tell them.” Lee Sin nodded again and said, “Alright then. I suppose I shall let you go for the evening.” He heard Caitlyn stand up and say strongly, “No!” She paused and Lee Sin could sense her embarrassment. “I mean, you don’t have to leave right away. I’d like to catch up if there’s nowhere you need to be.”

Lee Sin smiled and said, “I think I would like that too.” She sat back down and the two conversed for hours. Lee Sin told her of his new companions he had met, and how he had been blinded. Caitlyn’s voice quaked with fury upon hearing about the nine-tailed fox, but Lee Sin told her it had been his own fault. Caitlyn then described to him how she’d become the town’s Sheriff and that the crime-rate had hit an absolute minimum since she’d taken over. Lee Sin was impressed and voiced that he knew she’d do great things.

After a long time Caitlyn’s parents came home. They were delighted to see Lee Sin again, and Lee Sin caught them up all over again. Caitlyn sounded amused when she told her parents that she needed to work with Lee Sin on their speech, and the two excused themselves. Out in the fresh air, Lee Sin said, “So where are we going?” Caitlyn suggested they return to her home and they walked together silently. Lee Sin’s mind was racing, circling between worry for Ionia and elation to be back in Caitlyn’s company.

*************

They reached Caitlyn’s home halfway across town without any problems, and began planning what they wanted to say. Lee Sin had wanted to keep it simple, but Caitlyn had insisted they’d be more impressed with an impassioned plea, and they got to work.

Though it took half the night, the time flew for Lee Sin, and he was glad he had Caitlyn’s input. Suddenly, a small device at her side began to ring furiously and she threw it a dirty look. “I haven’t had any calls in two weeks, and this joker has to pick tonight?” She sighed heavily and paused. Before Lee Sin could react, she pressed her lips against his and kissed him hard. She withdrew just as suddenly and Lee Sin could hear the devilish smile she wore in her voice.

“Now, if you leave again, I’ll find you. I’m a damn good detective, you know.” He heard her footsteps heading towards the door and she called back over her shoulder, “The speech sounds good. Keep rehearsing, and you’re welcome to stay here tonight.” With that, the door closed behind her and Lee Sin sank back in his chair.

A smile spread across his lips and he thought, “Man, am I glad to be back in Piltover.” He put his hands behind his head and focused on remembering his speech.

I think Lee deserved a bit of happiness. Sorry it’s so late today, but at least one got out! Have a good one :).

      That is the bright side of most of my favorite champions not being in the story 🙂 At least they cannot die 😀 I’m not going to say which is in it, because you’ll kill him/her… 😛

        Annnd did I mention every champion not in the story has previously died a shameful and embarrassing death?

      • theguyformerlyknownasreaderwhichwastaken August 25, 2012 at 6:04 pm #

        So no new champions will be included anymore, considering they are all dead? 😦 Well at least that means Ionia will win 😛

      • League Tales August 25, 2012 at 6:05 pm #

        Lol, ok ok, you win! 🙂

      • theguyformerlyknownasreaderwhichwastaken August 25, 2012 at 6:07 pm #

        Okay okay I’ll stop and go to sleep…
