Fire Eater Posted March 5, 2014 Share Posted March 5, 2014 “I suppose not.” The king ran his fingers across the table. “Joffrey . . . I remember once, this kitchen cat . . . the cooks were wont to feed her scraps and fish heads. One told the boy that she had kittens in her belly, thinking he might want one. Joffrey opened up the poor thing with a dagger to see if it were true. When he found the kittens, he brought them to show to his father. Robert hit the boy so hard I thought he’d killed him.” “Yes, I recall now,” Cersei said, “Robert often told Joff that a king must be bold.” “And what were you telling him, pray? I did not fight a war to seat Robert the Second on the Iron Throne. You gave me to understand the boy cared nothing for his father.” “Why would he? Robert ignored him. He would have beat him if I’d allowed it. That brute you made me marry once hit the boy so hard he knocked out two of his baby teeth, over some mischief with a cat. I told him I’d kill him in his sleep if he ever did it again, and he never did, but sometimes he would say things . . .” Some mischief with a cat she says :tantrum: I can explain here is a list of the people she genuinely cares about for certain: Joffrey Tommen Myrcella Jaime And I think we're done. Anyone else who isn't on that list is not getting any semblance of compassion from Cersei. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
