    Catherine was starting to get more and more uneasy around Henry. She loved him more than she had ever thought possible when she first met the alpha knight. She'd been alone and afraid when Henry carried her off to the castle he had sworn his allegiance to. She would serve as his personal servant, the only way a knight could possibly keep an omega around. The thought had been nerve-wracking at first but with time, her job had become easier. She cared for Henry, she kept his room tidied, made sure he ate and was there to help him bathe. It had certainly been awkward at first and now, it meant nothing at all. She hardly reacted whenever Henry would ask her to draw a bath after a long, hard day of training.

    But lately, she had noticed a shift in the way Henry would look at her. It was verging on the leering she had witnessed other alphas do during feasts, to the other unclaimed omegas who lived in the castle only to serve them. It was happening more and more often, particularly when Henry had been drinking.

    Having done his laundry, Catherine was in the process of dropping his clothes over the balcony connected to his room. She was only relieved because Henry had always let her stay in his room, a small cot in the corner for her to rest. There had always been a distinct barrier between them so that Catherine felt comfortable and safe - something that had been important to Henry in the beginning. She had never felt.. unsafe with him, before... but the unease was something she simply couldn't shake if she was with him for too long. Henry was starting to drink more and more often, alone in his room with anyone other than her around.

    Taking on a dependent was a big commitment, but it had been something Henry promised to do for George. His friend had been a model soldier, doing his best as a single father. After his passing in their last battle, now Henry held those responsibilities. And to an omega, he might add. As if that made it any easier. When Henry made that promise to George, he never thought he'd actually have to fulfill it.

    Opening the door to his small room, Henry stepped into his quarters and began unbuckling his armor. Lowering the pauldrons from his shoulders, he let them fall to the floor next to his dresser. "Catherine?" Henry called, his voice thick was exhaustion. It had been a heavy day of training new recruits. All of them had been sad and pathetic. He didn't see even one making it to knighthood. Every movement was made obvious by the rattling of chainmail. Dirt smeared the knights face, sweat dripping from his brown hair.

    "A bath-" he called, without even waiting for an answer. It had been months and still Henry wasn't used to being met with her scent. She smelled sweet, like brown sugar. It was sometimes hard to ignore. Henry had never even thought about the possibility of having his own omega, or what he would've done with one of he had one. He knew how some alphas treated omegas, and how the general populace perceived them as weaker, but he had always been more focused on other things. But now that he was often times alone with one... It was growing harder and harder by the day to keep his composure. Constantly telling himself that Catherine was someone he had to protect and keep safe.

    Couldn't he do that and indulge himself?
