The prince was in his study, writing up a report as Peppermint brought his hot chocolate, his comfort drink. Something he had been drinking for about 2 mouths… Since Jack left. Gumball knew that the winter spirit had his duty that he couldn’t put off, the same as his duties as a prince, but he still missed the other terrible. The pink male had buried himself in his work to not think about it.
The maid missed the spirit as well, but it didn’t compare to Gumball. He had been a working mess and only took a break to eat. It fightened Peppermint to see her ward this way, but there was nothing she could do but wait from the white haired male to return…. If he returned.
The maid shook her head, clearing the thoughts away. “Something wrong, Peppermint?” The candy prince asked, looking up at her with concern. She smiled before shaking her head once more. “No, sir. I’ll leave you to your work.” The head advisor bowed before leaving the room, shutting the door behind her with a sigh. She needed Jack back now… For Gumball’s sake.
