I hope you like this chapter :)
Oh, and there was a little error I think in the previous chapters; I used Layla instead of Aisha, my bad lol. I have changed it ;)
Previous Chapter: Flora ran away. Helia tried to find her. Flora went to Linphea to search for peace and space while Helia had a talk with Krystal, leaving him doubting of Flora's love for him. Flora met once again Leo in Linphea.
"Leo..." even though she knew she talked to him once at Red Fountain, the fairy was surprised to see the light skin boy with beautiful emerald eyes as the color of the green grass in the warm spring there. "What are you doing here?" Flora asked curiously even though it was obvious the answer she was going to receive by his uniform. The fairy of nature didn't stood up but was sitting, admiring what she was seeing in front of her. "You are a..." Flora paused for no reason. "Yes, I'm a Paladin" the handsome guy finished her sentence. "May I ask why are you here?" he smiled at her and sat next to her. "This is my home planet" she responded a little nervous. "No, I know that. My question was, why you came here when you are supposed to be at Alfea?" the paladin looked into her eyes and could see shock at first, but then her eyes started to saddened until she looked down to the floor. "Oh, I'm sorry if I said something". Flora cut his sentence "its okay" the fairy paused for a moment. " its a really long story, and I should leave now" she stood up and grabbing her own hands as in sign that she was sad, began to walk away from him. "Wait, Flora!" he raised his voice so she could hear him. She stopped and waited for him. "Can I come with you?" Leo gave her a small grin while he touched his head behind as in awkwardness. Flora only blushed and slowly nodded. He then touched her shoulder and said "You know, I really like to listen long stories" Flora blushed even more. The two began to have a walk.
At Red Fountain
After what happened at Alfea, Helia was growing second by second more nervous and scare of where Flora could be right now. The only thing that he wanted to do was hug her and say sorry. He knew that what he did was wrong, being must of the time with Krystal wasn't right. But, a little seed of doubt began to grow in his mind, can it be possible that Flora does not trust him?. That question was eating him alive. He wanted to know what his beloved girlfriend felt about him.
"Helia, you were here all day?" asked the blonde specialist with a little bit of shock. "I just can't stop thinking about Flora" he said very honest. The other guys entered the room and were surprised to see Helia there too. He was not the type of guy who cuts class, so they knew this was serious. "You just got to talk to her, like me and Bloom when we have a problem" Sky tried to help with advice. "But Flora doesn't want to talk to me" Helia responded sadly, and sat on his bed. The blonde guy didn't know what else to say. "That's easy. Go buy her something she likes, like flowers. She'll forget about the whole situation". Brandon smiled with confidence as if that advice worked on every girl. "Flora is not like that. She's not materialistic, she's very humble". Helia lower his head, now his hand supporting it. "Well, if she doesn't want to talk or wants a gift from you to forget about the problem, then don't talk to her at all. She will eventually come after you, I mean, that's what I sometimes do" once again, another specialist, Timmy, tried to gave him advice. "I don't want to wait, I really want to find her now". Helia raised his head in hopes that someone of them could understand him. "Well man, I guess we can't help you on that" the three of them walked out of the room. "Helia let out a big sigh of dissapointment. "You need to find her" a male came out of the shadows of the corner. "You need to think where could she be right now" Riven told him with a serious gaze as always. "I know where she is but, I don't know if is the right time. I want to give her space" the blue-haired specialist told his friend. "Maybe you're right, but don't too much. A wound can become an insensitive scar. Then someone might try to cure it" Helia's eyes grew bigger, surprised by Riven's truthful words. "You're right but, don't you think she's doubting my love for her?" he touched slightly his chest. "She is afraid, afraid of losing you because Krystal is in your way" Riven said honestly and crossed his arms trying to seem careless. "Krystal is not in our way! She's a good friend, that's all. Why anyone can't see that?" he became mad at his words and clenched his knuckles. " The question is: why you can't see what everyone else clearly sees?" with those words said from Riven's mouth, he left the room, leaving Helia hanging on his words. "No one knows Krystal!" Helia murmured to himself, blind of what was happening in front of his eyes.
"...so that's what happened, and I don't know what to do now". Tears were trying to escape from Flora's eyes. "Oh! I'm sorry, Flora. I guess its all my fault. I was the one who told you that" he looked at her with guilty eyes. "No, no. It was not your fault at all" she looked at the sky and took a big sigh "It was his". The tears began to travel down her cheek. "I'm here for you, Flora" a sudden urge he felt to hug her, the desire to feel her and protect her he wanted. Leo knew he couldn't just tell her to 'don't cry'. He knew she had to let it all out, and what a great help than a tight embrace. Flora blushed and was surprised by his embrace, but she stood there, drowning in the fear and sadness of her soul.
Flora slowly pushed him apart "I don't think we should be here" she remembered that the only one who embraced her like that was Helia. "You are right" Leo said with a grin on his face. "I propose you something" an idea popped out of his head. He wanted to help her. "What?" the fairy asked curiously. "I shall come with you to Alfea, and I'll be there if anything happens or if you need me" he blinked at her with a big smile. "hhhmm... I dont know" she glared to the floor a bit sad, but she knew she needed someone to be with her if she encountered Helia. "Come on, I'll be like your guardian" he chuckled a bit. "I guess a little help won't hurt nobody" Flora smiled.
"Girls, I'm getting nervous about Flora" Bloom shared her fear with the Winx. "Oh Flora is alright" Stella careless said. "Bloom is right" Aisha told them. "Maybe we should call her" Muss offered an idea. "I'm calling her right now" Tecan said and put the cellphone on the table so everyone could see the hologram of Flora, if she answered.
"Hello?" Flora answered shyly. "Flora, where have you been?" Bloom asked preoccupy. "I... I was at Linphea" the fairy of nature said like if she was unsure of her answer. "You was, where are you now?" asked Aisha. "I... We're heading now to Alfea" told Flora a little bit cheerful. "We are? So you two finally fixed it, huh" the fairy of waves blinked at her best friend. "uuum... no. I haven't talk to him yet" Flora once again saddened. "So, who's with you?" asked her music fairy friend. "I....ca.....ear.... you" the Winx girls couldn't hear or see her. "I guess there's no signal where she is now" Tecna supposed. "I wonder who's with her" Bloom tried to imagine who could it be, but no one came into her mind.
"I lost connection with them" the fairy of nature told Leo. "Don't worry, we are getting there in no time" the paladin always being positive. "I can see Alfea from here" Flora said. They were finally at their destination. The paladin and the fairy descended in the spaceship that was assigned to him. A big sigh came out of Flora's mouth while she watched from inside the spaceship the girls waving at her in the distance. They were getting closer and closer. A hand touched her shoulder "I'm here for you" the fairy looked at him closely while he gave her a smile. "Come on, I'll go with you" Flora felt a little relief standing next to him, knowing that for some reason he was there for her. He was her guardian, as he would tell her.
The door opened and Flora walked down the stairs alon with Leo. The Winx wore curious faces, waiting to meet the new guy. "Hi girls" greeted the fairy flower. Everyone waved at her but kept quiet, intrigued to meet the one beside her friend. "Oh, this is Leo" said Flora and the boy waved at them awkwardly. "What's he doing here?" Stella asked smiling, knowing that something was going on. "uuumm... he.." Flora tried to explain but Leo did "I came to accompany her. I wanted to make sure she will get safe to Alfea" he looked at Flora like saying he had everything under control. "How nice of you, Leo" Tecna awed. "I can see you're a paladin" Aisha tried to make conversation with him. "Yes, I am" he proudly said while always keeping an eye on Flora's mood. "You must know Thoren and Nex" Aisha kept talking to him.
"We were worried about you, why you didn't call?" Bloom asked the flower fairy. "I'm sorry. I couldn't think of anything else" Flora apologized to her friend. A loud noise came put of Aisha's pocket. "Its Roy" she sounded very happy about it. "Hi, Aisha. I wanted to know if you and the girls are ready" the specialist asked getting to notice that a male was behind the girl he had a crush on. "Yes, we are. When are you coming?" the fairy of waves asked. "We are on our way" Roy couldn't stop noticing now the guy. Growing jealous he had to ask "who's that dude?" he hold a serious gaze. "Oh! He's Flora's friend" she put the hologram in an angle where he could see who was the guy. The words echoed in Helia's ears, 'Flora's friend', while he watched the guy who was with his girlfriend. He grew nervous, mad but at the same time sad.
