"Flowers have tons of uses!” Hilda exclaimed happily. “It’s just that you’re so focused on fighting and ruling and studying that you never take the time to appreciate them!”
Dimitri paused to think.
“Then, if I were to stop and appreciate the things around me (life) more… perhaps my burden (desire for vengeance) would be lifted…” he muttered.
“Well, maybe your burden (royal duties) would never be completely lifted, but taking time to heal (relax) will help you, you know? Everyone needs that sense of peace (to relax from stress).”
“But, if I were to grow too accustomed to peace (happiness), would I not be neglecting my duties (to get revenge)?”
“Hmm, well, your duties are important and all, but you always gotta keep yourself in mind,” Hilda told him. “Forgetting (to take care of) yourself is dangerous, you know? There are so many scary consequences (losing sleep, stress, etc)...!”
Dimitri’s gaze went to a far-off place, as he sometimes did with Hilda.
“Yes… I must never forget myself (lose sight of who I am), for the consequences (of descending into bloodlust) are far too great…”
(Hilda and Dimitri build a friendship and more on the solid foundation of misunderstandings.)

“What,” Hubert drawled, crossing his arms over his suddenly stifling jacket, “are you two doing in here?”
For on the floor in front of his fireplace, which was sporting a roaring fire that threatened to grow past its hearth, were Ferdinand and Petra. Around both of their shoulders was what Hubert recognized as the comforter from his bed. They looked around as he spoke, surprise on their faces as if it was unheard of for Hubert to be entering his own room.
