today will be different, won't it?
« on: Sep 12, 18, 10:57:55 PM »
This thread occurs shortly after tally up the damaged goods.

--------

Sora had decided to make an effort to spend more time with Quinten. In the wake of the Decimation, they needed each other. She could never replace Cezar, but she had to remain available for her males that remained. Marius had taken the lead in collecting Cezar’s things and coordinating a time to journey to Darkwood and check on the Urzica family. Mihael required the care of a Black Widow to repair his chalice after losing his Tiger Eye, but he was always bright-eyed and clear-headed when Sora came to visit.

Today, though, she wanted to spend time with Quinten and have him close.

Summer was nearly over, the weather was still nice enough to spend the day outside. She’d promised Elenor that she’d get out more and not let fear keep her inside. The dual losses of Cezar and her grandmother were a stumbling block, so when Mihael suggested that a project would help her get back into the swing of things, Sora recalled the idea that she and Riley talked about shortly after her return from Moesia. Deciding that she needed an escort, she’d reached out to Quinten the night before asked if he would join her. She could almost feel his excitement through their bond. She made sure to clear things with the appropriate adults, because the last thing she wanted was to get herself or Quinten into trouble. Even still, the excitement kept her up half the night.

She woke the following morning and bathed, then headed downstairs for breakfast. She spent the remainder of the morning completing letters and making arrangements for the guards that would follow them for the remainder of the day. She chose a blue sundress and flat shoes, then sent word that she was waiting at the entrance to the family wing for Quinten to join her.

Today would be different.

Today would be a good day.

It killed him.

Quinten could feel all this pain, all around, winding through the narrow streets, floating into the air, and creeping through the palace. Worst of all, he could feel it inside him, emanating from his Queen. She worked and worked, her back straight, and her eyes forward for the outward world, but he could feel how much she hurt. It upset him. Q wanted to do something, help her in some way, but he didn’t know how. He was struggling with helping the kids in the Shambles in much the same way and it made the young Warlord feel like he wasn’t doing enough. He could feel all the pain around him, but do nothing about it.

So when Kale was not sleeping with him, when he was away training with Vicky, Quinten had begun to wonder down the hallway of the family wing and sit outside Sorinna’s door. He didn’t want to disturb her. She needed time alone. But he just wanted to be close, in case she needed him. After falling asleep a few times on the floor outside her rooms, his Queen realized he was hovering and Q slept on the couch in her sitting room instead. It made the boy feel better, splitting his time between the two most important people in his life, Kale and Sora.

So when she had reached out to him to be her escort, Quinten had erupted with excitement. He had told Kale about it for nearly the entire night, his poor brother falling asleep as the Jack was still speaking. And then the Warlord had laid awake, trying to remember all the Protocol he had been taught and all the lessons Jer had given him on defensive shielding. He didn’t want to embarrass her or give his Queen anything else to worry about. He wanted this day to be relaxing for her.

When the time came for him to meat Sorinna, Quinten had not slept at all, but he was filled with energy. He ran towards the entrance and stopped short just around the corner. He took a deep breath then, pretended he was absolutely calm, and walked slowly around the corner to great his Queen. He bowed to her, like his teachers had taught him, and smiled wide, offering her his arm to take.

“You look beautiful, Sora.” He took a small breathe of her scent. “Where do you want to go today?”

His excitement made her smile. Her Quinten. Save for one time he was always so happy to see her. Had he been anyone else, she might have wondered if it was just for her benefit. But Quinten was genuinely excited to be near her and that it made it easy for her to relax some and let go of some of her troubles. Did he know how his brother felt about her? Did that matter to him? Sora wanted to ask, but she didn’t want to intrude on his relationship with Kale. She would not be the cause of friction between them, if she could help it.

Thank you, Quinten. That means a lot.” she said, taking his arm. She granted him her Touch, assuring him of his place in her life and her place in his. She was his, just as he was hers. His clothes fit better and he looked better rested and fed. She’d worried the first time that she found him sleeping in front of her door, but was glad when he agreed to come inside and sleep on the couch. Sometimes, she watched him while he slept, wanting to ensure that his dreams were peaceful. Hers had been since Jeremiah provided that web, just after the Decimation. Now she wanted to make sure that those who belonged to her also slept soundly.

I was thinking that you and I could visit the city gardens. There is a project I’m working on and I’d like to get some details on making it happen. I thought we could watch the people while we were at it. And maybe we can talk about a few things?” Sora asked.

She waited for Quinten to accept or ask for clarification. Once he was ready, she would follow his lead out of the family ward and through the palace. Sora made small talk, asking him how his day had been and trying to show an interest in his life. They were still learning about each other, so Sora wanted to remove the mystique wherever possible.

At the bottom of the stairs near the family wing, they encountered a Tacean woman being escorted by Lady Petrescu. The Priestess looked in their direction and smiled at Quinten, but when she saw Sora, she quickly returned her attention to the Tacean woman and hustled away. Quinten would feel Sora’s irritation across their bond, coupled with the annoyed look that she gave Stela’s back as the Priestess walked away.

Sorry. I just...I really don’t like her.” Sora said.
