Lilith let go of Nero’s hands once the young man pulled away to sit down. She understood that he was worried about, but after personally talking with Johann, she knew Nero was wrong. She moved back over to her chair and sat back down.

"Hmmm... Are you sure?" Lilith crossed one leg over the other and raised an eyebrow at Nero. "Then tell me, how do you think I found out about you? If he wasn't interested, why were you the main subject of our conversation the other day?"

NERO ARANT | CHILD OF THE FORGOTTEN LEGACY

"...Huh?"

Nero gazed at Lilith, dumbfounded and befuddled. What had they talked about? He imagined, in his self-depreciative mind, that it couldn't be anything nice. After all, from where they left off years ago, he didn't exactly place any faith that his mind or stances had changed in his old age. But that was fine. He was grateful enough to be included in this family.

Asking for anything else was above his station. Exhaling softly, he sent a call in through the dining hall to have some food and refreshment sent in, for him and Lilith if she so desired. He hadn't eaten lunch yet, and already he could feel the stress of this conversation weighing on him... or perhaps it was fear?

"I can't imagine it was anything good."

Lilith sighed and let her head fall back. She stared up at the ceiling for a moment and closed her eyes. “I can’t say it was anything good either…” she said, intentionally making it seem bad. She even let that feeling hang in the air for a moment before turning it around. “All he kept talking about was regrets and being mad at himself… All this shame he feels over some stupid thing he did.”

Lilith sat back up again, her smile softening. “I’m not fully aware of what happened back then,” Lilith lied… like a liar. She knew enough. “But if you never give someone a second chance, that person will never have the opportunity to grow."

NERO ARANT | CHILD OF THE FORGOTTEN LEGACY

"A second chance, huh...?"

Nero observed the woman as he awaited for his lunch to arrive. Once it was properly delivered, a second offer to Lilith if she desired, he slowly consumed a few sips of fruit juice as he sighed, slowly but surely enjoying the salad with grilled fish as the topping and buttermilk ranch. He figured this would ease his mind, and it did to some degree, but that bitter emotion still wore on his mind.

As far as he was concerned, he had years to address this matter... and they simply never did. What would a conversation change now? Give him an outlet to tell him how he truly felt. That he was the black sheep? That he'd never be a true member of the Arant family? That he disgusted him?

"What could a man like him regret? He didn't do anything wrong. He saw me engaging in behavior unbecoming of a man and shared his honest views. And I'm still no different from that time than I was before. Who knows? Maybe, I've gotten worse. I've relegated myself to behind-the-scenes work, I'm not entirely proud of my body of work and I... probably won't ever be able to give him a grandchild to carry the Arant's lineage into the future."

Lilith took on any offer of food, ordering something along the lines of a double bacon cheeseburger with bbq sauce and some fries. If not that steak and baked potato. She’d just go down the list until they had something she actually wanted to eat. She had no desire to eat like a rabbit after a thousand years of being awesome. If anything was going to kill her, it wasn’t going to be a fucking heart attack. Once her food arrived, she thanked those who delivered and Nero and took her time enjoying whatever she found on the menu that she actually liked.

“Why not?” Lilith said after mentioning the grandchild. “You’re adopted. Adopt. Don’t want that? Surrogates are a thing. It’s not about whether you can, it’s about whether you want to. If he starts any of this “continue my line” shit, I’ll bop him one. Besides, a man like him has a lot to regret, but that ain’t my place to talk about. What is my place is coming here and recommending you open up the chances for reconciliation by meeting up with him. Very little to lose, a lot more to gain. Besides, I saw and heard enough to know that he wants to at least try.”

NERO ARANT | CHILD OF THE FORGOTTEN LEGACY

"Hm..."

Lilith certainly presented a compelling case during her honest assessment. He hadn't shared a conversation with his grandfather in years. As far as he was concerned, the man was every bit unbending as he was stringent. He rarely yielded when it came to his his ideals, and that was an admirable trait to an extent, but that was precisely why he felt so hesitant to speak with him again in the first place.

What if there was more to lose? What if he genuinely ended up disliking his presence more than he already did? Lilith assured him if he approached him harshly, she would reprimand him, but... could he bear the thought of falling short again? He hadn't even achieved half of what he'd set out to do when he got here, but then... it dawned on him. His siblings were proud of his accomplishments.

His mother adored him. Even his deceased father spoke highly of him. He wasn't perfect, but perhaps he didn't need to be. For a moment, he pondered his thoughts, reflected on her words, ascertained his answer, and leaned against the chair. He supposed it truly was time to put that part of his life to rest, for better or worse.

"Alright, I'll find some time in my schedule to meet him. I know he's a busy man, so I'll try to be as respectful as possible during my visit. If you don't mind my asking... what did he say about me, Lilith?"

Another piece of the puzzle that Nero did not consider yet, which was okay, was that the woman in front of him also was family. She had no problem with him or his life style, and already pulled him into her heart as part of her family. Even if he did not gain Johann, which she very much doubted, he had gained Lilith and all he had to do to get her was exist. That was all she would ask from him.

As Nero spoke of meeting with Johann, Lilith smiled wide again. She clapped her hands together once and stood up. “That’s great!” she cheerfully exclaimed. “I-…” Nero caught her off guard a little. She sort of expected his curiosity, but it took her a moment to think back and grab the words. The fact was, she couldn’t remember exacts. “Something about dresses, him being an idiot when he reacted to it… Then about you either being gay or bisexual; he did not specify. He was all full of shame and guilt over not accepting you immediately… But, as I said, or think I said… Old people need time, sometimes too much of it. We suck that way.”

"He was...?"

Genuine surprise colored his expression at that revelation. He didn't have any initial suspicion, but her words confirmed that she had indeed talked with her grandfather. Whether or not he chose to believe them was entirely up to him, of course, but since it involved the subject of sexuality - that would've been quite foolish now. As he finished the remnants of his food, he continued to listen to her politely, soaking in her advice as he nodded along. Chucking softly, he offered his opinion as he carefully cleaned his desk, gazing back at his carefree guest.

"I didn't expect my new aunt to present such a compelling case, but... here we are. I can't promise I'll be seeing him immediately. Work in the Steingruft can be demanding like that. But... I'll do it. I'll talk to my grandfather again."

Even if he feared that thought, he needed to close the door to that aspect of his life for good - for better or worse.
