It's not the same, but different isn't always bad
« on: Aug 09, 18, 08:35:13 PM »
Quinten had woken up from a nightmare. One about his father. He looked at the sleeping brew he had been given, the one that usually sent him into a blissful dreamless sleep, but he pushed it aside. Kale wasn’t here and he never slept well when his brother wasn’t beside him. Getting out of bed, the boy padded into the hallway and waved to the guard, half-asleep. Heading down the hallway, the Jack clutched a small rock that had carved into a turtle tightly. He had taken to sleeping with it lately, clutching  it in between his hands. Whenever he became nervous or anxious he ran his thumb over the smooth shell and tried to let his worries slip away.

Sighing, the former street rat padded down the hallway until he got to Radu’s room. Kale had drugged him up so much that the poor Warlord Prince didn’t even have enough focus to snarl properly these days. It was kind of cute though. Made Radu seem like a puppy that couldn’t keep his balance.

Slipping into the Prince’s room, the boy snuck into the male’s bed and curled up beside him, leaching his warmth. Q didn’t know if his friend was too drugged to wake up or had sensed his presence and let him enter, but no snarl met his presence. After a few minutes he drifted off to sleep, one arm gently resting on Radu in a half hug. By morning, his turtle had slipped from his fingertips and rested right in front of the Warlord Prince.

He had woken up.  Always did when someone got close to the bed.  But at the scent of Quinten Heartly, he hadn't said anything.  He'd been a little surprised when Q cuddled up to him on his bed, but he hadn't said anything.

It was awfully early in the morning for him to be up and about.  That he drifted off so fast was.. well, reassuring to be honest.  Probably a bad dream.

A normal person might go back to sleep.  Not Radu.  Quinten had come to him seeking protection from bad dreams.  Radu couldn't defend him from those, but he could be present.  He could be aware.  He could make sure no one bothered Quinten.

When the turtle fell from Quinten's hand, it was Radu's fingers that caught it.  He turned it over in his hands, looking at the smooth polish.  Quinten worried at this thing. 

Then again, Quinten worried.  It was what he did.

He frowned, rubbing his fingers over the shell of the damned thing while he waited for Q to wake up.  He wouldn't rush him.  Kid needed sleep.  Besides, if he knew Q, the moment he started moving his legs under these blankets the kid would snap awake.

When the door cracked open, a tray being pushed in by a guard, his eyes studied the male with a 'sleepy' look.  It was a look he'd sort of perfected over the last few days.  If Kale or Victoria didn't drug his meals, he was able to stay conscious longer.

And if he seemed sleepy from the meals they didn't bring him personally, then they wouldn't try to keep dosing him.  It was sheer stubbornness.  He didn't like being drugged.

At all.

"Breakfast, Q."

The Warlord’s dreams faded in Radu’s presence, the boy’s breathing settling into an even pace. He never felt safer than when he was next to the Warlord Prince. Not when he was at court. Not when a hundred guards were protecting him. Never but with Radu. The male had protected him when no one else had and that had left a lasting mark within the male.

So he slept well, for the first time in a long long time, without the brews that knocked him out. And without snuggling close to Kale. The moment the door opened though, Quinten’s eyes fluttered, his arms tightening on Radu protectively. While his legs were still healing, it was up to the Warlord to protect his friend, even against his own brother.

“Do you want me to try the food and make sure Kale or Vickey haven’t drugged it?” Quinten climbed over Radu clumsily, grabbing the tray from the servant and placing it on the bed between the two. He eyed the food suspiciously. “You know what we should do? We should put you in that rolling chair Vickey found you and race down the halls. Or, I could wheel you outside and we could roll down the hill.” The Warlord beamed at his friend, hoping the suggestions would brighten his mood.

“...or I could wheel you to that Red Moon house and have them take care of you. Whatever you choose though, we should do something fun.” Quinten thought everyone needed something to smile about now. Including himself.

He gave Q a tired grin, letting his head 'thunk' back into his pillow after a moment.  Q's ideas sounded great.  They were just excessively unwise.  Even for him.  "As fun as all that sounds.. I'm on strict orders.  I can't leave this bed except to go take a piss.  They don't want me risking the legs."  A snort of laughter left him, his eyes peeking towards Q.  "And if you send me rolling down the hill, they might both have heart attacks."

The idea of Healers having heart attacks was a little funny though.  He couldn't deny that much.

"Still... order are orders."  On multiple levels.  He frowned, his fingers moving to rub at the scar that was weeping blood again.  Mother fucker.  He didn't want to do this.  he didn't want to have this conversation. 

"I'm thinking I'm going to train as a Healer Escort when all this is said and done.  You know, the whole growing up and getting the next Jewel and all that?  Kale is going to need one, and I'm... frankly.. tired of fist fighting my way through life."  He cracked the eye open again, glaring at Q.  "Don't laugh!  I mean, I'll always enjoy a good fight, but it shouldn't be so bloody hard just to live, you know?"

"Besides... Kale wouldn't listen to anyone else, and we both know he works himself too hard, especially now."  He wasn't just going to come out and beat Q over the head with the idea that he was just 'Radu'.  Because Q would know something's up if he did.  No, he had to work his way up to it.

Fuck he hated being subtle.  Subtle wasn't really his favorite thing to do.  He wanted to just... shake the kid.  Make him understand.  But he couldn't do that, because it would just solidify the idea in Q's head.

He had a few ideas of how to make the point though.
