Summary: Forget laying a cape down over a puddle, Effie's not letting her lady's feet anywhere near those things.
A/N: Shameless fluff, here we go!

Fire Emblem Fates, Effie/Elise: carrying bridal style - "Don't worry, I won't drop you."



"W-woah! Effie, I can still walk!" Elise yelped as her feet suddenly left the ground. She threw her arms around her retainer's neck for leverage, amazed at how Effie could still step so swiftly despite the added weight against her chest. "Honest, they're just a few puddles!"

"A knight doesn't let her lady get her feet wet." Effie smiled. "Don't worry, I won't drop you."

"Oh, I know that," Elise giggled. Effie could carry her on one shoulder and she knew she'd be safe, she'd seen the other girl lift entire tables without breaking a sweat. "But are you sure you don't mind getting your feet wet?"

"Better me than you," Effie said, pulling Elise closer. "Besides, you're just getting over that flu half the army caught. If you get wet, you'll just get sick again."

"Oh, I will not," Elise said with a small pout. Granted, it had been a pretty bad flu and she'd felt pretty terrible, and she knew she wasn't the only one being babied. At least Effie was letting her eat on her own, not like Camilla still trying to feed Takumi at every meal.

"Better safe than sorry." Effie tugged playfully at one of her pigtails. Elise smiled wryly, rolling her eyes.

"Look, Effie...it's not like I don't appreciate this! But I can just walk around..." she trailed off, remembering how the ground had looked that morning. "Okay, maybe I can't walk around them. But what if you get sick from getting your feet all wet?"

"Not gonna happen." Effie smiled, kissing the tip of her nose. "And if it does, I'll have the sweetest nurse in the army to take care of me." Elise smiled, cuddling closer, glad Effie had taken off her armor before they went into town. Maybe Effie was going overboard, but deep down she liked the security of her girlfriend's arms, being so high above the puddles.

Puddles she hoped wouldn't be drying anytime soon.
