* Plot Informaton for Scelt

Scelt is a Territory in turmoil and peace is tenuously held together by the Sceltic Queens. Rivalry between the Clans errupted into horror for the Territory that resulted in many dead, on both sides, and culimated in Clan Sheane being outlawed in the Territory. Further troubles plague the Territory in a variety of manners - Landen villages are raided, Courts are attacked, and no one seems to be safe.

Words in the Water
« on: Nov 30, 18, 11:39:42 PM »
It was perhaps not the best day for a walk on the beach, but Tibor found himself easily swayed when both his granddaughter and his Queen requested it. Ganged up on him was likely a more accurate way of describing how it went down. There were multiple pleases, some bouncing, tugging his hand, and even a couple of promises to be 'really reeeaaaaallly good' if they got to go.

Despite how Tibor grumbled about it, he certainly was not truly going to complain about getting time with his Queen. Naomi's presence only added to it, and it felt like Tibor had two granddaughters now with the addition of Alis.

"So recently Naomi has been asking for a kitten," Tibor said to Alis, schooling his features into a stern expression. The corner of his mouth may have twitched a little with the effort. As he spoke, Tibor's eyes followed his granddaughter as she ran along the beach, curving her path as the waves washed up on the shore, evading the chilly water. He was glad since he didn't want her to get washed out to sea. The relative calm of the water was deceptive, and he knew how dangerous it could be.

"I think she probably got this idea from someone. Is there anything you would like to tell me?" With this question, he turned his head towards Alis, raising both of his eyebrows in a pointed look. Tibor supposed it was entirely possible that Naomi had come up with the idea on her own, but he had a feeling Alis was somehow involved.

Alis loved overcast days and even though it was far too cold to be barefoot without getting disapproving glares it would still be nice to be near the ocean. So when Naomi had suggested it she may have cheated just a lil and used her most winning smile to convince Tibor to escort them. After all, everyone was always happier when she didn't run off on her own even though she was perfectly safe. She wore the Sapphire, thank you very much, and this was her land and ocean. Nothing was out to harm her here and if people did, they'd have to catch her first.

Naomi skipped ahead and Alis pulled her wool hat further over her ears and hooked her arm around that of her Bonded. "A kitten. I have noooo idea where she might have gotten such a notion. Nothing at all. I definitely didn't let her play with the litter that's living under the porch and most certainly didn't let her name one already. Nope, not I, I tell you." She grinned and lay her head on his shoulder. "Kittens are perfect pets for young ladies. They teach the best way of life. Some time you should purr..... and sometimes you should bite the toes of anyone who walks by. Oh, and sometimes you should steal treats off a plate while no one is watching."

The slow meandering pace was a little slow so with a laugh she skipped ahead and then walked backward a few steps, her long red hair whipping about her face in the frigid air. "Think of it this way, if she has a cat she'll have to learn to care for it, which will give her practice for life. She's of the right age to have a few responsibilities and cats are sturdy creatures. If she messes up the kitten will likely be alright, and if she does well it proves she's ready for more when she next asks for something."

"Hn." The single syllable, which was more like a grunt, somehow came across as skeptical as Tibor eyed Alis. He definitely knew exactly who was putting the idea of getting a kitten into his granddaughter's head, and damn if he couldn't deny either of these two witches anything. He sighed then, already resigned to his new kitten-filled life before Alis even finished telling her tall tale.

He shook his head, trying to hide his amusement just a little. It would not do for them to know for certain how easily he could be brought over to their side. Sure, if the situation was dangerous, he would be as stubborn as he needed to be, but all things considered, kittens were small potatoes. He was still going to make them work for it, though. He made sure to keep a neutral expression on his face as he watched his Queen walk backwards in front of him.

Sometimes he still could not believe that he had found his Queen at his age, and that she was such a young, vibrant woman, rather than a stately woman his own age. But when he thought about it for longer, perhaps serving someone so young was exactly what he needed. And maybe he was what she needed, too. She already felt like she was just another one of his granddaughters. He was proud of her the same way he was proud of Naomi, and he wanted her to succeed just as much as he hoped Naomi would when she grew up.

"More?" Tibor said, adding a hint of pretend horror to his tone. "What more could she ask for? A kitten is plenty. Too much, even." Not really, but he had to protest on principle, if nothing else. "I'm not sure she'd be able to feed a kitten." Tibor's eyes followed Naomi as she continued on down the beach, still making sure she did not get too close to the water. "Are you going to help her, seeing as this is all your fault?" He eyed Alis next, trying to determine if she was getting cold.
