Claiming space to live. [Private]

Mi'keh had pondered this a few days before, and it was no use delaying it any further. He and Gryffin needed a new place to live. It had to be big, and have room for two to sleep and live in. And since he wasn't planning on letting Gryffin out all that much it had to have at least some room to move around. But that wouldn't pose a problem. With his newly found position here in Malice he could probably kick anyone out he wanted. And thus was his plan. Things like that happened in Malice, the higher-ups walked over the lower in rank. If he just made obvious who he was he hoped that whoever he was to kick out would not make a problem.

With this in mind the half-Elf was on his way from the surface, or close to it, back to his room. He had seen the home of a wealthy merchant which he liked earlier, he had walked by it and peeked in through the door on a couple of occasions. It was big, and it had at least four rooms apart from the main room which had some very nice carpets and polished furniture. It was something Mi'keh thought he'd like. Today he decided he'd take his prisoner there and bargain with the owner of the house, to see what arrangements could be made. He didn't really have a plan about how to go around getting the owner out if he refused to cooperate, but he'd see about that when they got to it.

Returning to his room from his duties he quietly opened the door and kneeled down next to Gryffin who was sleeping in his bed. The small room leaving little space for him to be anything but too close for comfort. With a hand on her shoulder he shook her gently. "Hey, Gryffin, come on. Wake up..." He whispered, not wanting to wake her too abruptly, and secretly enjoying watching her sleep. Although he would never admit that even to himself.

She stirred, her eyes flickering open, she saw the Half- Elf and a smile curled across her face. She turned and sat up, pushing back the sheet which was acting as a blanket. Shaking her long dark hair back she rested back on her arms and turned to look at Mi’keh.
What is it?” she said, her voice still laden with sleep. She rubbed her eyes and clicked her neck. She rocked forward onto her knees and pulled her skirt up, so it didn’t hinder her legs. She half jumped half stepped towards the door and stepped through it. She didn’t like being so close to people, not after that last time, when she let her guard down…

I take it you found a house, and that is why you woke me up?” She said it as if, he hadn’t then he would be sorry. She waited for him to get up and move himself in the houses general direction. She wouldn’t tell him that she saw the look in his eyes when she woke up. She certainly wouldn’t tell him how it made her feel. She did her best to try and calm the feeling that thousands of butterflies where flapping around in her stomach. But it was useless, she felt like this the whole time she was with him, when ever she saw him, when ever his hand bushed past hers. She shook her head, and turned away. Not wanting him to see her thinking in such a way.

The Half-Elf smiled as he led the Human woman up to where he had seen the house he was aiming for. Apparently he had done something to upset her again, but by now he had gotten used to that and just smiled. It was a long walk with lots of stairs again, but the atmosphere around Gryffin did not invite a conversation so Mi'keh did not bother, he knew he'd only get flamed.

Silently they eventually reached the solid wooden door where Mi'keh had been pondering on several occasions. He knew it was a dangerous thing to do, telling Gryffin what to do. She was a free spirit if the half-Elf ever saw one, but being too free could get yourself killed here in Malice. It was a thin line he was walking on, keeping her under control and out of trouble, and at the same time take care not to scare her off which would probably get her to run away into certain death. Carefully he phrased his sentence: "Gryffin, please don't misunderstand, but these people might be... unwilling to leave their house for us. It'll be my job to persuade them. Please try not to interfere with the act I'm about to perform, it's for the both of us." Standing a bit closer to Gryffin then he'd usually dare as they had both went for the doorway, Mi'keh looked into her eyes to see if she understood.

She followed, keeping her mind clear, well as best as she could. He never started a conversation with her now. She cursed herself for being so defensive. Shaking it off she followed, thinking that this situation couldn’t get any worse.

” "Gryffin, please don't misunderstand, but these people might be... unwilling to leave their house for us. It'll be my job to persuade them. Please try not to interfere with the act I'm about to perform, it's for the both of us”

She flicked her eyes upwards and looked into his.
Why does he have to look into my eyes like that? she said silently. Almost paralysed by his green eyes all she could do was nod and cast her eyes back down. She put a hand over her stomach to try and calm the butterflies that were there. Standing back she looked up at the large doors and waited.

The half-Elf let out a hesitant smile, perhaps this was the better way to go around things, or perhaps he had caught her off guard. Whatever it was the response he got was unexpected to say the least, for some reason it made Mi'keh feel like blushing although he had no idea what he had done wrong.

With a sigh at women on the overall Mi'keh turned back to the door and let his mind slip through the stages of meditation and focus, in less then a second he was completely calm and had all his concentration on another plane just beyond the visual one. All that was needed now was a little effort from his side. Channeling energy invisible to the untrained eye into the lock of the door he pushed and pulled untill all the tumblers and levers slipped into place and the door unlocked itself. Absentmindedly he made a mental note to put some oil in the lock once they had gotten settled. Casting a quick sideward smile to Gryffin he opened the door and immediately stepped through, hoping to have the advantage of the surprise on their side.

No one was awake yet, too early, even for the servants of the house. The soft click was heard by a sleepy old dog who lifted its head and riffed at the door. It was enough to wake up the ‘master’ of the house. He rolled out of bed, being a large man, it took some effort. Shambling along the corridor he saw the open door and his mouth fell open.
Wha…what are you doing!?” she shook a little staring at the half-elf and woman who stood in his open door way. The rising volume of his voice waking the rest of the house. A stick like man entered and gave the large man a confused look.

Gryffin just looked at Mi’keh and raised an eyebrow. Stepping into the doorway she walked up to the both of them. Being 6ft she towered over the large man and matched the height of the one she presumed to be his son. Her blue eyes danced over the both of them and she grinned. Deciding to play with them a little she turned Mi’keh and shouted enough so he would be able to hear, and it would not go beyond him.
Can I kill them slowly sir?” She turned back and watched them cower from her a little. The rest of the family peaked out from behind a corner and she hissed at them. Waiting for the Half-Elf to walk towards them she stood, evil glints passing over her blue eyes.

Mi'keh grinned, the woman apparently had gotten a good feel for his methods. This might be easier then he expected. The in habitants of the room didn't really look as if they had all that much of a backbone so getting right to it might be the easiest thing to do. Moving purposefully slowly Mi'keh walked around the house a bit, looking at the furniture, the carpets, peeking around doorways. With his mind still in meditation it took him little effort to appear emotionless. Eventually he stood on Gryffin's right side, eyeing the two before him with an absentminded smile as he put his ungloved left hand on Gryffin's shoulder as if to restrain her. "You have ten minutes to pack, we'll take the house." He said softly, looking the big man straight in the eyes. "Don't try anything funny, I don't know what a weakling like you is doing in Malice but there's no place for you here."

The large man looked between the tow of them and cowered from them both. Upon hearing Mi’keh telling them to leave, he straightened, till terrified.
You ca…” He began to say. Gryffin fixed him with a cold glare and growled; pulling slightly away from Mi’keh’s restraining hand. The man peeped and cowered once again. Gryffin pulled back and turned to Mi’keh, smiling she removed the hand from her shoulder and walked through the group of shaking people. As she walked past, she grabbed the large man by the shoulder and dragged him with her. A snap and squeal of pain echoed through the now silent house.

There things were thrown into boxes, chests, packs and the stood quaking at the door. Gryffin held the doors, barring their re entry to the house. She grinned and looked over each of them.
If I hear of you, I shall find you and kill you. Have a nice day” With that she closed the doors on them and turned back into the house. She looked down at the old dog, which wagged its tail weakly at her. Raising an eyebrow she picked it up and opened the door. The family had only just turned, jumped back round to face her.
You forgot this ” she gave them the heavy dog, turned back and walked into the house.

That went rather well, Mi'keh figured, staring at Gryffin in utter awe. He had no idea what had just happened but apparently it had worked. With face which tried to hide his amusement and surprise he looked at Gryffin and said: "So... I take it you like the house?"

Turning away from the door she shrugged.
Not my decision to make, if you want it, I have to go along with it” She walked past him and began wandering around the house. She looked into all of the rooms and noted what each of them were. After her search she came back out into the main corridor. She frowned and looked behind her and turned to Mi’keh.
There’s only one bedroom” Gryffin said it almost as a question trying to see behind the half-elf’s emotionless façade.

With a slight smirk the half-Elf looked back at the human. It was amazing how she had become a part of his life over the last few weeks. Right now he could hardly imagine living alone in his dark and cold room again, and secretely he dared hope she had grown a certain amount of liking towards him too. She was no longer as cold as she had used to be, at least now she bothered to talk to him, which sometimes he doubted was an improvement. Their current problem amused him, if he could claim a house he could claim an extra bed from somewhere too. He wouldn't dream of sharing his bed with a woman and especially not Gryffin as he was sure she'd kill him if she knew he even thougth about something like that, but he found it interesting to see how Gryffin would respond to the idea. Carefully he hid his smile away again, anwsering the question that Gryffin had not asked. "Is there a problem with that? It looks like a big enough bed for the both of us to me..." He could hardly wait to see Gryffin's response, ieven if it was a piece of furniture hurled towards his face, but he used his meditation to hide his emotions well, after all, if she saw him smirk the response would be ruined even if it still resulted into bloodshed.

Gryffin looked between the room and him a few more times. A steel glint pashed through her blew eyes and she walked into the room. Looking about it she turned glaring at every corner. Seeing a dressing table, she walked over to it and sat looking at her reflection. Frowning and looking away, she saw something shining in the dim light, in a half open drawer. Opening the drawer she pulled out the amazing sapphire necklace. The previous owner mush have left it behind in there rush to escape her. Gryffin ran her fingers over the large stone and laid it on the table’s surface. She sat there staring down at it and turned, hearing him behind her. Looking out into the gloomy hallway she sat silently. Her eyes caught sight of the bed again and she turned quickly away, hiding the blush that accompanied the fantasies that flashed through her mind.
If he knew, he’d take you back She shivered and looked down at the necklace once again.

Mi'keh was having trouble figuring this woman out. There wasn't any laughter, ever, she glared at him multiple times every hour, and never ever did she say a friendly word. He almost started thinking that he'd imprisoned her instead of saved her in some strange way. If gratitude was strange to her, at least she might be able to bring up some form of self-preservation. After all, he could send her back to where he found her with a wave of his hand. He was about to make some snappy comment at her when he caught the expression on her face. She seemed scared, and embarrassed, but not hateful, instead there seemed to be something else which the half-Elf had some trouble understanding.

With a worried grimace, remnants of his previous urge to scorn her, he walked up to her and put a hand on her shoulder, the warm one as a subtle sign of trust. "What's wrong Gryff?" He said. Without noticing the way he used her name and for once not worrying about the consequences for touching her.

She felt his hand as it touched her shoulder and she almost melted from under him. She shook her head, hesitantly putting her hand over his own and turned, still holding onto it.
Nothing, I was just thinking” she half mumbled what she said, finding it difficult to control the rising butterflies in her stomach. She felt ill, her stomach refusing to settle. Standing up she looked him in the eye. Her blue gaze danced across his face and she let go of his hand, forgetting it was in her own. She leant forward and kissed his cheek before stepping past him and moving quickly out of the room.

Standing in the kitchen, she rooted around, half heartedly in the cupboards, looking for something to calm her stomach. She pulled out some bread and looked at it, deciding weather to eat it or not. She put it away, the smell of food deciding that she didn’t need it. Leaning against the cupboard, she closed her eyes and inwardly cursed herself.

Mi'keh remained standing in the bedroom even as he heard Gryffin apparently attacking the kitchen. This had been a surprise if he ever saw one. His head was in turmoil, thoughts clouding his mind, strange emotions clouding the thoughts, he really did not know what to think. Gently he touched his cheek where her lips had touched him. Somehow he could not accept it, his mind rejected the motion of her having any form of feelings for him. Maybe she wanted something from him, maybe she was trying to use her beauty to her advantage, to lure him into some form of trap that would grant him freedom. But somehow that wasn't right either. If she wanted something from him she would probably grab a knife and put it to his throat while he was asleep, waking him up to make her demands. No, whatever it was it had left Mi'keh in great confusion.

His thoughts still running through his head he resorted to the only logical thing he could think of. After having stood there for several minutes he slowly turned around and walked through the living-room to the door of the kitchen. Standing in the doorway he looked at Gryffin, both of them silent for a while. Finally Mi'keh spoke, softly, and although he did not manage to say much the emotions in his voice spoke more then a million words in just one. "Gryff....?" Was all he said.
