At first, Eugene had let the castle nursemaid fuss over Rapunzel, even if she was kind of a batty old lady. Hey, she knew better than he did, right? But... When Rapunzel's throat hurt so much she decided to try not to talk, and she was sniffling constantly, and it just seemed like she was having a horrible time, Eugene might have tricked the nursemaid away and put himself in the position to take care of his princess-girlfriend.

"Thank you, Pascal!" he said as the little fro-- Er, chameleon? --returned to the room with a tiny sack full of hazelnuts. Eugene figured Blondie'd had plenty of sour-smelling cabbage stew, no matter how good it was for her. She deserved a special treat. So he scooped up both sack and pet-friend-brother-thing, and headed over to Rapunzel's bed.

"Hey, Rapunzel. I got you-- OW!"

"Are you okay?!" the princess croaked, alarmed.

"...Dandy," Eugene muttered, rubbing the spot on his hand where Pascal had bit him. "Um, anyway, PASCAL AND I got you something."

He set Pascal down on her pillow, and then held out the little bag of hazelnuts. Rapunzel blinked at the cloth sack, but after Eugene gave her an encouraging look, opened it.

"Oh!" she gasped, happy but raspy-voiced, and Eugene kissed her to quiet her before she made her throat worse.

Really, it was the least he could do.
