a snippet

Luke was back at Addergoole. Just for a couple of days, so far, but it was the official mark of his advisorial role being temporarily over. Leo had mined him for all the thoughts and information he could, before Luke had to leave - not because he needed it, but because it was stupid to waste valuable resources. Even if they weren't in this case his resources, exactly.

Of the Law, Of the Gods...

A snippet of conversation relevant to the recent RP Lyn and I are in the middle of.

Lyn, you may or may not want to wait to read until after Cya and Leo talk. ;)

But Why

It took two weeks of it - of Belonging to Leofric Lightning-Blade, of living in his house in Cloverleaf - before Jeska finally couldn't take it anymore.

"Sir?" They were in the living room, with his owner watching what he'd explained to Jeska as "anime" on the "television" while Jeska sat nearby and, usually, stayed quiet.

"Yes, Jeska?" The blond man looked over, seeming mildly but genuinely interested.

"Sir." Jeska took a deep breath and tried to keep his ears from tilting back in nerves. "What am I doing here?"

"It might've been more useful, thinking you were a Toho movie character instead."

It wasn't often that you encountered an actual real-life spittake, but it was only quick reflexes that kept Leo from spitting beer all over the coffee table.

"I-- what?" He stared at Cya, who was blushing a bright red and looking like she wanted to hide under the table.

Rescue Kept: Settling In (part 1)

Their "ride" was not in fact anything that a person could ride at all, it turned out, but rather a slim young man who seemed none too thrilled at being out in the wilderness in the middle of the night. Jeska's owner - took the man's hand and--

--they were in front of a house, in a quiet city neighborhood.

Jeska stared, barely even registering his owner conversing with the man - who had somehow instantly transported them here. The ride was not a ride; going to Cloverleaf hadn't involved being dragged through the streets for everyone to see; his owner had given him a shirt and apologized.

A Rescue: Part Final

Part 1
Part 2


"You can move now."

Jeska bolted upright, gasping for air as he pushed down the surge of panic. He'd felt the injuries healing and the perpetual dull aches from old injuries come back, so he knew his new owner had to be near, but that was right in his ear and there was nobody-- oh.

"Easy now, you're okay." The blond halfbreed suddenly appeared next to him, sight, smells and all, and put a hand on his shoulder. It was surprisingly warm and pleasant; Jeska wouldn't have dared pull away from his owner anyway, but he found himself not wanting to, which was... new.

A Rescue: Part 2

previous

this is turning into a bloody saga


Leofric sat, waiting and watching, and the only thing keeping him from pacing nervously - or worse, charging the camp single-handedly - were decades of martial self-discipline. He'd sat down, worked out the whole plan in advance, made absolutely sure it would work, and yet... And yet. The younger man - Jeska, he'd said - was his, now; Leo was responsible for him. And he'd just sent him back into a pack of Nedetakaei, to get himself grabbed by a wild monster and hauled off.

It wouldn't be that bad, Leo reassured himself for the dozenth time. He'd turned off his new Kept's ability to feel pain, for the moment, and he'd heal him as soon as the others were sufficiently convinced he'd been killed, but it was still... uncomfortable.

He was never, ever, going to tell Cya how he'd done this.

A Rescue

The woods were quiet as Jeska sat in his hiding spot, waiting. He was responsible for getting food for dinner that night, and to that end he'd been camping out waiting for something to pass by. His hiding place had the bonus of being out of the way of the rest of the pack, giving him a few precious hours to himself. And those few hours would be even more valuable if he kept having so little luck. There'd been a deer, but something had startled it just as he'd taken the shot and he hadn't even wounded the damn thing.

Just as he was thinking it might be best to cut his losses and head back to camp, there was a whisper of a presence behind him - and before his hand could reach the hilt of his knife, let alone he could turn around, there was a press of sharp, cold steel against his throat.

It was a nice apartment; a really nice apartment. The room she was in - living room? - was the size of her entire house, back outside the city. The furnishings also looked new and expensive, once her vision adjusted enough to tell, but she didn't have much of a chance to gather any other details before Gale was untying her arms and urging her to her feet.

"Looks like they tried to pretty you up some more before they sent you over." He gently flicked back a lock of her hair, looking her over critically. "I'll have to order some clothing for you, but let me show you around first."

part 1

The groomer came over as soon as the customers had left, clipping a leash to Amalia's collar and leading her to the washroom in the back before subjecting her to a longer, more thorough washing, brushing, and styling than she'd had in the entire who-knows-how-long she'd been there. Once she- the groomer - was satisfied, Amalia was dressed in the standard shipment clothes (which barely passed for more than undergarments), a blindfold, and a soft rope tying her arms behind her back.

"I was starting to wonder how long I'd be stuck with you." That was the store manager, sounding more cheerful than any other time she'd heard him talking. "What a lucky sale. He paid twice what you're worth."
