[Demios] She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not...

Timestamp: Imperios, Era XXIV Post Fractum, a little past midday, about 150 candlemarks after the point where Cal would have liked to have disembarked the ship.



Solid ground. Never had the elf felt so blessed to have his feet upon good firm earth. If he had not been quite so aware of Kailin's steps following close behind he might have wept. Instead, he manfully strode ahead towards the beacon like sign depicting the Leap of Faith Tavern.

He really needed a drink.

A cycle. A cycle of being scrutinised to determine if he were or were not turning green, of having Kailin having to hover around ready to use her magic to set him right when he was turning green. It had not done much for his mood. And whilst he was grateful for all of her care and concern and efforts, Calanon couldn't help but feel as if it just set them on an even greater uneven footing.

Realising that he was almost storming ahead as opposed to manfully striding, the elf sighed, stopped and turned to wait for the woman in question, extending a hand out toward as she drew near, the shadow of a rueful smile acknowledging his own fit of pique .

"Amin naa il- y' quel ear lema vee' lle elea, lirimaer I am a not a good sailor, as you see" he said, in what could quite possibly be the understatement of the era. Glancing at her sideways, he gave a soft shake of his head at his own bad temper. " Forgive me, I am behaving like a horrible ungrateful wretch....but please...please can we consider going back overland?"

He walked with her then to his intended destination, holding the heavy, sandblasted wooden door ajar for her to step through, before he followed suit and approached the bar that ran the long length of the room.

There was a certain rustic charm to the place, all bleached wood and faded rugs beneath feet. Light from two large windows spilled across the space, and over the bar was painted a mural of the Fire Isles as they appeared from the sea, in case one partook too much of the local moonshine and couldn't remember where they were.

Calanon wasted no time before ordering a light beer for himself, and then deliberating for a moment before ordering Kailin a whiskey. He figured she might well need it after having to contend with his surly self for that voyage. After paying, for he could manage a couple of drinks at least , Cal pressed the glass of whiskey into the hand of his love before raising his own mug in a toast.

" To dry land. And a Wedding"

Kailin had been certain that Calanon would simply jump overboard in his haste to disembark the vessel as they waited for the gangplank to be secured. At least he hadn't gone storming off without her while she finished speaking with the captain and laying out plans for meeting up a few brightenings hence. Then it had taken a little longer to say her hellos to the harbor master.

And while Calanon had waited on the dock, the crew had not bothered to hide their amusement from her, so her cheeks were flushed from more than just wind as she started off after the elf.

Of course, she didn't have the heart to tell him that they would need to return to the ship to grab their things once they decided on a place to stay. Perhaps she would leave him to take a nice soothing bath while she retrieved what was needed.

Observing the tension in his usually graceful stride, her lips quirked toward a smile. He had really been the worst company for the cycle of their journey. Just about the only thing that would have made him worse was if he'd spent the entire time alternately hanging over the railing and growling at her in their cabin below decks. She'd certainly been tempted, a time or two, to forego a healing spell and let him feel what the journey would have been like without her assistance.

As it was, she couldn't understand his misery. He hadn't been seasick - not really - but he'd been nearly as grumpy and touchy as if he had been.

Snorting to herself, she shook her head and let her gaze lift from the ground beneath her feet to land on Calanon, who'd apparently realized he'd left her behind and stopped to wait for her. Gallant of him.

Unable to keep from smiling back at the self-awareness she saw in his expression, she reached to take his hand as she came even with him, and laughed at both his statement of the obvious and his plea for overland travel.

"You do realize that we are on an island, yes?" Her hand tugged on his gently, and she shook her head, the smile widening toward a grin as amusement flashed in her eyes.

"Perhaps you could find a griffin to take you back to the mainland, to avoid the horrors of the sea," she paused in her teasing, cocked her head to the side as she eyed him up and down, "or a dragon. I think you'd look quite dashing on either, so long as you don't turn that horrid shade shade of green, again."

Once inside the tavern, she let her gaze wander the room as Calanon ordered and paid for their drinks. She was more than happy to let him do so, as she was sure he would throw a fit if she even so much as raised a finger on his behalf just now. Not that she didn't understand his frustration there... it was hard to be so seemingly reliant on someone else.

The chill of the glass being pressed to her palm brought her attention back to the elf as she wrapped her fingers more securely about the whiskey, and she lifted it in response to his toast, her lips curling wider before she took a first long, much-needed sip.

"To getting you off that damned ship," she offered her own somewhat dryly spoken toast, before taking down the rest of the whiskey in one quick toss.

"Another," she said to the bartender, setting the glass on the bar with a decisive thump, lips finally achieving a proper - if somewhat sharp - grin as her gaze met Calanon's directly, "Gods know I earned it."

Demios. The island she had choosen as her new home. Wild and beautiful. Demios, the sea town growing and thriving on the volcanic island. She had choosen it for the beauty of the place, for the feelings it gave her. She had worked to get a little house hidden on the coast and she had retreated there. It was her safe, peaceful nest where to retreat and relax.

Her visits to the bustling sea town were mainly to get supplies, hear what was going on in the Empire and sometimes to embark in some crazy adventure. She didn't spend much time there and she didn't have friends to hang out with. She was a lonely soul. From time to time however, she stopped by the Leap of Faith Inn to get something to drink. From soft to strong, it often depended on her mood.

That day, it was one of the day she decided to stop to the Leap of Faith for a drink. She made her way in, a flourish of her long summer skirt as she stepped in. She had taken in some of the island fashion, in particular during the hot summer months and she favored confortable and light clothes. Other than the skirt, she was wearing a wide flowing white blouse, in her hand a pouch with her shopping.

She was thinking of what to take today, she liked one of the fruity drink they served and for the warm day it felt... right. Her eyes surveyed the room, some habits were hard to die and for her; one of them was to check for her surroundings and people around each time she entered a place. She stopped dead in her track. He. HE.

It couldn't be him. They had met in Prime months before... the world was big... how he could be THERE?! She had to be mistaken. He could't be him. It just... wasn't fair! She closed her eyes and tried to reset the mental image of him but when she opened her eyes again, he was still there, the same elf she had a little run away with during her stay in Prime.

Her stomach clenched as she felt a surge of nuisance and well... anger swell up inside her.

Calanon. It was his name.

He had left her in the middle of the sleep. He had left without a word. He had left her waking up in a cold bed. It had felt... bad.

But they had never met again and she had just pushed it all away in the back of her mind. She had not forgotten or well... she thought she had forgotten until she saw him there. In Demios!

She realized she was like frozen in the middle of the room and in her most casual way she started moving again, reaching for the bar. No one had noticed it, right? But why he was there? She was curious, she had to admit it. She kept looking at him with the corner of her eye as she ordered her drink and waited.

With her surprise, a woman was with him. So he found someone else to spend time with, was he going to leave her into the night like she did with her? Her thoughts were bitter and angry at him. As she observed them, they looked intimate, it felt like if they were togheter for some time by now.

Her thoughts got a dark shade as she looked at them. She usually didn't like to be the bitch of the conversation but that day, watching as he was all melting for her, she really couldn't resist the temptation.

She got up and walked toward them, coming from behind Calanon so he couldn't see her and get away in time "I never thought I could see you here." she made a small pause "Calanon. Or should I call you, Sir? Nah, too much for you, right?" she had a wide smirk as she spoke, she was going to savour his reaction.

Cal’s eyes flickered up to Kailin in surprise as she sank the one whiskey and promptly called for another. Perhaps he had worn on her patience just a little. Her grin was still a grin though, even if was a rigid, and he concluded that it would not take too much to smooth over any irritation she might be feeling toward him. Which was a relief.

He had a couple of days at least to plead his case for the return journey as well. Dragons and Griffins aside, it would be much preferable to just hop off on the main land and travel the rest of the way over land.She would come around,surely?.

About to embark on one such attempt to persuade her, the elf was interrupted by a feminine voice from behind him, and he turned his head to see who had spoken.

The shocked- and possibly a little apprehensive –expression that was his first reaction, was hastily replaced with something more neutral as Cal’s gaze slid from the girl, to Kailin and back again.

His thoughts however, particularly as they processed the somewhat unfriendly inflection in the girl’s greeting, were anything but neutral. He recognised her of course, and with that recognition came the knowledge that he might possibly have ruffled her feathers a little by stealing away in the early hours after their tryst.

Oh Fething Hell

“…what a..pleasant surprise” Calanon managed, after allowing himself a second to panic invisibly. “..I had quite forgotten that you live here Lady..” Feth. What was it? Blue Black, he’d called her in his head, but he was quite certain she’d given another name. Something to do with blue though “ Azure”

Thank the Gods, that was it!
Cal babbled on, keen for some reason to manage the introductions, feeling it preferable to fill the space with his own voice rather than allow Miss Azure to say any more just then.

“This is Kailin.., Kailin, Lady Azure. Whom I met in Prime. In Spring”
There was the hint of a flush at the tips of his pointed ears that might give some indication as to the elf’s discomfort, but for now, he tried to style it out.

Who knew, maybe she did just want to say hello?

Kailin had had many a reason to be angry with the gods over the course of her relatively short lifetime. But there were times when their sense of humor (and justice) could not be denied.

As the bartender poured another - slightly larger, which earned an appreciative nod - couple fingers of whiskey, she let her gaze travel down the length of the bar past Calanon. Her gaze first slid past, then returned to the fair skinned girl with blue-black hair whose sights were set on her lover, and who was approaching with a decidedly unfriendly look.

Kailin couldn't help the quick upward jump of her brows, or the half-smile that pulled across her face shortly afterward. She hid it as she lifted her glass to her lips for a slow sip, and tried very hard to school her expression before their visitor made it close enough to speak to Calanon.

It was somewhat evil, the gratification she felt at his shock when the young woman spoke. But when he turned toward Kailin, she managed to simply lift her own brows in an approximation of surprised interest.

Lady Azure?

Her surprise was very real for a moment when Calanon successfully struggled to produce a name for the girl. Was she a lady in truth? Or was she, perhaps - and here Kailin gave the young woman a closer inspection - a performer?

Taking note of the red that was creeping into Calanon's ears, Kailin let her smile widen as he made introductions. Stepping away from the bar so that she was not hidden behind him, Kailin nodded to the girl, then looked with brows raised (innocently of course) between the pale human and the elf.

"Prime in spring, how lovely..." if there was a slight dryness to the words, Calanon would hopefully be the only one likely to pick up on it. He was also the only one likely to see the flash of amusement that she did not try to hide from him as she shot a glance his way before turning to Azure, features schooled and placid again.

"A pleasure to meet you, Lady Azure. And how did you two meet, then?" All innocent, this curiosity, or so the lightness of her tone seemed to suggest.

Diamea just loved his shocked expression as he turned to her. He didn't expect her to appear, didn't him? She had to credit him for being somewhat quick to hide behind a more neutral expression but she guessed behind the facade he was troubled.

She smiled sweetly as he spoke, a sweetness not fully hiding her grinning; she waited for him to get her name wrong but he saved himself on the corner. Good! But it wasn't going to save him for long. "Yeah, I honestly didn't thought to find you here!" she smiled "I was like "Oh he can't be him!"." her smiling was all innocent sweetness.

Politely, she let him do the introductions and set the field of the conversation. It seemed he had never told her about their little escape, even better! She nodded lightly to the other woman "A pleasure to meet you, Kailin." she said as she took a moment to inspect her as she felt she was doing the same with her. Her raised brow didn't scare her at all.

"It was indeed a lovely meeting, a pity it lasted so little!" she giggled and winked at Calanon, knowing her words would make him even more edgy and embarassed as well as hiting to what might have happened. She took a sip from her drink before answering Kailin's question "It was quite fortuitous in truth." Kailin was a woman, an intelligent one, her curiousity wasn't at all innocent. "We just met by chance and shared some time togheter." her smile was as innocent as ever, who could ever think something more had happened?

For a few short moments, it felt as though his hopes might actually be coming to fruition. The smile that accompanied Blue black's words of surprise at seeing him giving the elf some false hope that she did just want to say hello. So he fumbled through the introductions, noticing his love's apparent amusement at his discomfort, frantically wondering how he could make this a short, sweet reunion and make their apologies and leave.

Phedos' Balls, she looked younger than he'd remembered. He felt a twinge of guilt at how he had stolen out of her room, but really, it was a while ago. She'd had plenty of time to simmer down.

The elf picked up the mug of beer he'd set on the bar and taken a large gulp, wishing it was something a little stronger. That was the point where his misguided hopes were dashed, as his friend from Prime tipped him a wink and ...

Calanon almost spat his beer all over everywhere at her words then, turning his head sharply to look at Lady Azure.

Pity it didn't last long?! That was slanderous! Coughing a little, burning with indignation, he was left in the unenviable position of not being able to refute the perceived slight without being all together more detailed about the nature of their meeting than he had hoped. Urghh. This was horrible.

And then Kailin. Dear sweet innocent Kailin - he wasn't convinced- presented the girl with the perfect opportunity to elaborate on their connection and Calanon cringed at whatever she was going to say. When it was more innocuous than he had anticipated, he seized the moment and interjected.

" ...pracenda, we had pracenda " Cal got out hastily, shooting a pleading look at the younger woman, and then cutting his eyes back to Kailin, trying to communicate his very real desire that - for once- she just let things lie. Draining his mug, he shot a pained look at the barkeep and held it out for a refill.

"Anyone else need another drink?"

"Just met and shared some time together, hmm?" Her gaze flashed up at Calanon as she looped an arm companionably about his waist, squeezing in a few short bursts like one does with an errant youth, missing only the quick tousling of his hair to make the gesture complete. "Had some food and drinks?"

One dark brow arched rather pointedly, before she looked back to Diamea, "it all sounds quite familiar, to tell you the truth. Though I cannot say our own fortuitous meeting could ever be described as short. Or for that matter," and here her gaze swept from the girl's deep blue eyes down, down, and down toward where her own hand had settled around the prominent bone at Calanon's hip, fingers drumming lightly over that point, and perhaps calling attention to other landmarks nearby, "little."

Her sigh was full of a very particular sort of reminiscence as her eyes lifted again, full of undisguised amusement, first to Diamea, then to the elf at her side. She took a proper sip of her whiskey.

Obviously, the cycle on the ship caring for a grouchy lover had put her in an unusual mood, and the whiskey she'd downed without any food to cushion its landing was only emphasizing that fact.

To now be met with a young woman who could barely even be called that, claiming to know her lover intimately? Well... Kailin was nothing if not ready to have a little fun with this particular situation.

The bartender had that blankly professional look on his face that made it clear that he'd been observing the little reunion, and was doing everything he could to keep from snorting with laughter himself, but still had enough pity - or perhaps brotherly feeling for the elf - to simply take the mug from Calanon and place a double shot of whiskey in his hand with a significant look. Then he filled the mug with ale and set it on the bar close at hand. At least Calanon was well supplied for whatever might come next.

Her wink caused the desired effect. He looked quite guilty, wasn't it? And he couldn't defense himself without going into details on their interaction, a thing she was sure he would try to avoid with all his skills. Sorry not so sorry.

He really thought she would sink him with her first words? There was no fun in that! Better go one step at a time and let him feel like he could save himself, only to corner him once again. "Oh yes, we had pracenda and we had foods and drinks." she smiled innocently; she saw the possessive moves the other woman made on Calanon, the way she casually made her arms sneak around him. She really hold him close, it seemed. She had to keep that in mind.

"Indeed!" she giggled, her eyes following the other's gaze down and getting the subtle meaning hidden in her words "But it seems in your case our Calanon here decided to stay for longer, lucky you! Only... I wonder for how long." she smirked playfully, was she trying to break them apart? Of course not, she just wanted to warn her about a possibility!

"Thinking on it, I remember we were still togheter after pracenda, wasn't it Cal?" she looked at him with a sweet smile, would he try to say otherwise? "I remember there was too much noise in the common room to keep talking."

Cal felt like Kailin's arm slipping around his waist should have been more comforting than it was. Instead, he felt a little like a mouse being batted at before the cat chomped on it, and only managed a somewhat watery smile as her gaze rested on him, which slipped when she turned back to Diamea.

It sounded familiar? The elf winced at that, but couldn't catch Kailin's eye as her attention was now fixed on the younger woman. Nervously, he awaited whatever his lover had to say, not sure which of the two he was most worried about now.

Kailin did not disappoint of course, and it wasn't entirely clear if the expression that spread over Cal's face at that point was mortification at the direction the conversation had taken, or self satisfaction that his girl had so neatly rebutted Blue Black's previous slur. He definitely could have kissed his lover then. Perhaps it was a blend of both.

Whichever it was, it didn't linger for long as Diamea had her own words to throw into the mix, and the elf suddenly felt as if they were in dangerous territory again. Again might be pushing it as he didn't really feel like they had ever left, and catching the eye of the barman, Calanon felt a surge of gratitude for that little show of solidarity, and knocked the whisky back in one, the burn on the way down a nice addition to the glow of embarrassment he had going on right then.

It was nervous laughter that bubbled up when Blue Black asked her question, and Cal glanced between the two women, caught between a rock and a hard place.

He darted a panicked look toward the barkeep, but there was little the man could do to aid the elf then, so Cal was left to struggle on alone.

" Uh...well...yes. It was er..loud. Taverns can quite often be loud."

Dear Gods, make it stop. He daren't look at Kailin, and the sickly sweet smile on Lady Azure's face was quite honestly, terrifying him, so Calanon looked around for some inspiration to redirect the conversation again.

" Its a beautiful place..Demios....have you..lived here all your life?"

Ok. Admittedly not that inspired, but if it took the heat off him for a while , he would take it. Then he had a sudden panic that he might have asked her that back in Spring and his forgetting would count against him as well. He couldn't win!

Feth it All

'Our Calanon'... 'our Calanon'?

That was interesting.

Kailin snorted at the girl's attempt at a barbed comment regarding Calanon's commitment levels, her grin spreading wide as she opened her mouth to reply in kind. Except... it occurred to her suddenly that it was the second comment the young woman had made about something not lasting very long. And she was clearly quite angry at Calanon.

The comments the two were throwing back and forth about noise levels and having eaten pracenda were amusing her, given that it was quiet obvious that the elf had slept with the child. Well... almost child. The girl had to be no older than her sister Sireen, which was very young indeed. The thought stirred Kailin's protective older sister side, and she lazily unwound her arm from around his waist.

"Yes yes..." she interjected, "the tavern was noisy, so you left the common room to have sex. We all get it," and here she turned to acknowledge the barman with a look of exasperation. This direct acknowledgment caused him to lose control of his amusement for a moment and he gave a very unprofessional not-quite-cough as he turned purposefully away to polish some glasses that were already quite sparkling.

Brow arching, set her own whiskey down on the bar half-finished, turning to look directly at her lover with the first sign of a scowl darkening her expression. She had ignored his rather clumsy attempt at a subject change, and - standing with arms crossed, facing Calanon and standing closer to Lady Azure now than she was to the elf - she cocked her head to the side.

"A'maelamin...Beloved..." the word was a soft coo, gentle with the falling tone she gave it, "Ume lle kaima yassen sina hin ar' san' kela vee' rato vee' lle nae tele?Did you sleep with this child and then leave as soon as you were done?"

Diamea was stopped mid sentence. She was opening her mounth to say more than Kailin interjected and got... directly to the point. She knew they were coming there, there was no way to avoid it and she made sure it would end there... but she didn't expect her to be so... blunt... and somewhat cold about it all. She was stunned and she felt her cheek warming, she didn't want to but they indeed did.

"Yes, we had sex." she stated as bluntly, admitting the obvious. Her eyes darted to the bartender with a bit of a icy light, he was going to stay out of this, right? "We both wanted it, we both had it. And it would had been a beautiful night if he didn't decided to get away as soon as it was done." she said, jaw set, her voice cold getting tinged with just a small hint of sorrow. She hadn't like waking up cold, even if she knew she should have expected it.

She fell then into silence, avoiding to answer his change of subject. It wasn't the time to talk about Demios. Her eyes looked at Kailin, saw the scowl making its appearance on her face, it made her decide to stay silent a little longer, something was changing... She wondered why the woman, so protective toward the elf her companion at first, was now changing sides or at least moving towards her and away from him. She guessed Kailin didn't consider her just a liar whore after all.

Such a soft gentle cooing hiding the true dangers of that words. She could feel it, waiting for Calanon's answer and fall. She didn't understand the words, she guessed to be elven speech, but she imagined Kailin was asking answers from him. Now.

There was a shocked silence following Kailin's blunt surmisal of the evidence presented, interrupted only by the laugh-cough from the barman. Calanon gaped at his lover - the current one- not quite able to believe that she'd just..

His eyes slid across to Diamea in equal shock as she started blathering on about it as well, and for one long moment, he wondered if he could focus enough to teleport the hell out of there. Was it the done thing then, to discuss one's past sexcapades in an open forum with one's lovers? Some strange human custom. Or...or just his own gross misfortune.

His attempt to redirect the conversation fell on deaf ears, and Calanon fought against a rising panic. Abort, abort, abort.

The slow slip of Kailin's arm from about his waist was the first indicator that things were sliding from bad to worse, the rather damning account given by Diamea the second. And the scowl on the face of his beloved as she stood alongside Lady Azure instead of him, the third and final nail in his proverbial coffin.

And so when Kailin asked him so directly, there was little Cal could do to prevent the flush that stole up his neck to meet that had started at the tips of his ears. It did sound bad when you put it like that. And he had not missed the delicate thread of hurt that had wound itself about BlueBlack's last words either.

"Il- teena' alea Not straight after he mumbled, guiltily now. A hand went up to rub the back of his neck, as if he might be able to flush out the tension there, and then to wrap around the mug of beer that the barman had left so kindly to hand. Half wishing he could just drown himself in it, instead he swallowed hastily, anything to break the uncomfortable silence that followed his words.

It settled back on the bar with more of a slam than he intended, before Calanon turned fully to face the young woman he had met in Prime all those months ago.

" For what it is worth, arwen en amin, I am sorry. I meant no slight to you..."

A quick glance back at his beloved and Calanon spun back to the bar, finishing the beer and holding the mug forlornly out toward the barman, who he hoped would take pity on him again. He was certainly feeling a little sorry for himself by this point.

So there... it was all nicely laid out before them all, and they could - perhaps - get on with settling in before the wedding that she and Calanon had to attend tomorrow. After Calanon apologized and Lady Azure accepted the apology, surely they could be on their way.

She was nodding along with Azure's description of the evening, looking for all the world like it was normal and entirely fine with her to hear just how wonderful a time the girl had had with Calanon, if only he'd stayed longer. Who didn't like hearing about the sexual satisfaction their lover had granted to a perfect stranger?

Choosing not to respond right away - and keeping a tight leash on her expression - she turned her attention instead to said lover, quite impressed with herself for just how calm she sounded as she spoke.

'Not straight after'... so he, what? Got up and left in the middle of the darkening? Charming... No wonder the girl sounded a little upset about the encounter.

Kailin couldn't help the smallest flicker of a smile that touched her lips at the sight of his blush, and wondered if she'd ever seen him look quite so embarrassed. Not even, she was sure, when she'd won the game of capture-the-flag and gotten him in trouble with his mentor.

She stayed quiet again as Calanon drank down the ale, and through the apology he provided. Though there was definite amusement flashing in the pale green eyes again when he glanced her way before turning his back on her in preference of more alcohol. She couldn't blame him.

Aeternia, she wanted a few stiff drinks too before she took the elf to bed to wash the memory of this encounter away.

Not only had the bartender taken pity on him, but when Calanon spun around he was greeted with the sight of a pair of shot glasses lined up on the bar before him. Whiskey again, and generous pours. It was a wonder that the man didn't just reach across the bar and clasp the elf's shoulder. Instead, he did the next best thing and met his eyes with a suitably grave look as he reached out to take the mug for another refill.

Behind him, Kailin - who was watching the exchange - snorted.

Then she turned her attention back to Azure and sighed, "there now... Calanon's apologized and there's no further need to torment him, yes? You saw that blush as well as I did, I'm sure."

Lowering her voice, she leaned in a bit, gaze softening again as it would have if she were talking to her own sister, "Seek your pleasure where you will, Azure, but let this be a lesson never to expect gentlemanly behavior of those willing to take you to bed after little more than a candlemark spent together."

Her gaze shifted toward Calanon, then back again to the young woman, "best to be real about what you're getting and why, and not make more of it than it is, do you not agree?"

In other words, there was no 'our Calanon'. The girl had had the elf for part of a darkening and no more. It would have to be enough, and was already far too much for Kailin's liking.

Not that she could blame the elf for that, either. Kailin could guess why he'd sought his pleasure where he had, and felt a soft pang for the fact that she'd very likely had something to do with it.

Uncrossing her arms, she took a step closer to Calanon - ostensibly to retrieve her whiskey from the bar - and leaned into him with a hand on his back as she reached past him for the glass, purposefully bringing them back into contact again.

Diamea watched him as he got cornered and could only answer. She saw the blush raising and the embarassment growing strong as he spoke only a few words. He looked guilty, even if he drinked to hide himself, to fill the silence, to do something. She had gotten what she was looking for and she didn't feel a thing. She was "happy" he had confessed but that same happyness felt somewhat empty.

For what it is worth, arwen en amin, I am sorry. I meant no slight to you... She looked back at him as he apologized. He didn't looked away, he looked staright at her, he faced her as he apologized. Their eyes met and her anger... deflated. She was behaving more like a child than a grown woman. The realization was hard. She had no witty or hard answer and she stared at him getting refilled with ale.

But then Kailin took once again control of the situation, turning to her, her green eyes meeting her deep blue ones.

She couldn't say something back, she was right, she had always knew the truth of that words. They met in a moment where both needed a warm moment of passion in the darkness, they knew it and they both accepted it. And they both knew it was only a night, only few hours and no more. However, she had let herself be taken by emotions and driven like a toy. She had hoped to get pleasure, to feel better, in treating him like a bitch, in making all the guilt fall on him when she too, had been a willing part of it all. She had made fun of herself in front of a tavern. Great work, she praised herself with a sneer.

"I agree." Her voice was somewhat cold as she answered, her jaw set. She was admitting she was right on... everything. Still, she was no child and she didn't like the way she talked with her like... like if she was a little sister or girl in need to be guided and teached. Her was a sorta of rebellion to her soft tone, a mechanism of protection, to assert some sort of self presence after having in the end only ridiculised herself.

As Kailin moved back with him, there wasn't much left for her apart for looking as stupid as possible. Biting her lower lip for just a moment, she left her empty glass on the counter and turned, her home was waiting. The peace there would soothe her inside. Time to go.
