The Story of Us
This is the story of my WoL and Haurchefant Greystone. While it’s not the beginning of Alex’s tale, it’s a very significant part of her journey. It follows her relationship with Haurchefant as well as his lifelong friendship with Aymeric. It’s a story revolving around their lives, their love, their friendships, the events and the interactions which occur in their world that helped shape the aforementioned. A tale of two people who are brought together, be it for weal or be it for woe, through a simple twist of fate.
It starts pre-Titan after the last time Thancred was seen at the Waking Sands and begins with Haurchefant being 26 and Aymeric 30.
This is the first of several parts that will fill in the gaps in Secrets and begin to answer the questions I have been asked.
I decided to include this in my series about Alex and Aymeric because it's Haurchefant and he played such huge part in their lives, both together and separately. He is the only reason Aymeric and Alex even exist so Haurchefant and his relationship with both A & A belongs in their story.
This work is dedicated to ceriboo whose comment inspired me to go farther back than I had originally planned! Much love, dearheart! <3 <3

Although they have been together well over a year now Aymeric is still hesitant to go public with their relationship and it is starting to wear on Alex as she begins to doubt not only herself but his intentions as well. She knows he has his reasons, however there are some he has not told her, some he's keeping secret. Will Aymeric be able to slay his inner demons and lay his fears to rest to have a future with the woman he loves? Or will he remain chained to these thoughts and feelings that haunt him and keep him bound in the past?

I had been tempted to go back and rewrite the first few chapters because I cringed when I reread them. However, I decided that no matter how cringy I find them, it gives me something physical to look back on and see how my writing has gotten better. Many, many thanks to those of you who read it in spite of its cringiness at times! Much love <3 <3 <3 ~K~
- Part 2 of The Story of Us
"Et Inter"- means “the in between" in Latin. This part of the series is basically a continuation of Secrets and is about what happens from where the last chapter ends up until the time the epilogue begins, pretty much the in between. Most of the stories will be fluff and will follow the newlyweds as they adjust to marriage and being parents all while juggling their duties and roles as they work together to find a balance.
