eldorne_girl: (daddy had horses)
[personal profile] eldorne_girl
[Delia is outside. Jeans and black shirt and leather jacket, she doesn't look anything like a lady, sitting perched there on the fence looking at the horses.]

[late afternoon, getting cool, but she seems content just to stay there. It's the one thing in Milliways that reminds her of home. Not of court, but home. Eldorne, with it's hills and grasses and many, many horses.]

[she had been talking to Mithros earlier, a whispered apology as she stroked his neck and said, not today, lovely. Your mistress is angry with me, I can't ride you today..]

[later, maybe.]

[later.]

[but now the great warhorse has moved on, and she's just sitting there in the open air.]

Raguel notices the slightly familiar figure on his way down to the lake, bag and sword in hand. He starts to veer to the left to avoid her, then thinks the better of it. He'd been in a rotten mood last time they'd talked, and he knows himself well enough to be aware that that's never pleasant for conversation. He continues on the path he'd started, giving her a stiff nod as he approaches.

"Hey, Delia. Going for a ride?"

[and she had reacted with court laughter, bright eyes, and baiting words. Today, at least, she seems to be in a more mellow humour]

Sadly, no. I don't own any of the horses, and, well. I normally ride that fellow of there, but his mistress is angry with me right now, so I am being diplomatic.

"Diplomacy has its place, I guess," he agrees reluctantly.

"How angry is she?"

What did you do to her? seems a little rude.

I would say unreasonably so, but she was not in a good humour to start with. Fairly angry, I think?

un_fallen: (hmmm)
From: [personal profile] un_fallen
"Ah. Yeah, you've probably chosen the right approach."

He looks out at the contented crowd behind the fence and shrugs.

"Lot of other ones out there, though. I'm sure at least a few need someone to give them some exercise."

Mmmm, perhaps. I am not, how do you put it...popular, though.

Maybe I'll ask someone, if I see any.

From: [personal profile] un_fallen
Well, this is interesting. He leans against the nearest fencepost and lets his bag drop.

"You really make enemies that easily?"

Carry-on effect from Tortall. Treason just does very, very bad things to a girl's standing in society.

[her tone is flippant, her eyes less so]

un_fallen: (Uh huh...tell me another one)
From: [personal profile] un_fallen
"I guess so, if you can't even ride their horses."

He leans over the fence and whistles a few times. A couple of the horses look at him, but none move in their direction.

"And they're not even all from Tortall, I'm sure.

It's not even that. I'm sure I could, perfectly well. But, they have enough people to look after them. And it's just Mithros at the moment.

Date: 2006-05-29 04:32 am (UTC)
un_fallen: (sure about that?)
From: [personal profile] un_fallen
"Mithros," he repeats, frowning a little.

"Is that Alanna's horse? I've heard her mention the name."

Date: 2006-05-29 04:47 am (UTC)
un_fallen: (in fact)
From: [personal profile] un_fallen
"Um. What happened? Or would you... rather not?"

He's a little more cautious these days about who he presses for information.

[a shrug, a dancing smile]

I told her I love her brother. She took great, great offence for some strange reason.

I'm still not entirely sure why.

Raguel stares at her.

"Thom's a difficult one to love, I'd think. Maybe she doesn't believe you."

Alanna told him herself that she doesn't trust Delia, but this seems the more diplomatic approach. Apparently, it's the day for it.

[faintly amused,]

Perhaps.

"Did you ask her why?" he tries.

Date: 2006-05-29 05:45 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] eldorne-girl.livejournal.com
No, not yet. She was a little too busy accusing me of loving misery.

He can't help laughing just a little at that.

"Well, that sounds familiar. What's your excuse?"

Date: 2006-05-29 05:58 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] eldorne-girl.livejournal.com
I've known him since I was twelve, and he's familiar. I know what to expect.

Date: 2006-05-29 06:13 am (UTC)
un_fallen: (sure about that?)
From: [personal profile] un_fallen
"And Alanna thinks you'll be miserable?" he asks, uncertainly.

"That doesn't sound like most versions of love that I hear about from people, but I do have kind of a different perspective."

Date: 2006-05-29 06:45 am (UTC)
un_fallen: (hmm)
From: [personal profile] un_fallen
"Well, you know. I haven't tried it out myself, or anything, so I can't really say I'm an expert. But I've heard from a lot of people."

He looks at her carefully, wondering how much of this she really means.

Date: 2006-05-29 09:16 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile] eldorne-girl.livejournal.com
Never loved anyone else? I mean...not romantic love, but just never loved at all?

Date: 2006-05-29 06:10 pm (UTC)
un_fallen: (ash watching)
From: [personal profile] un_fallen
"Um. Well, that's different, I guess."

He looks inexplicably uncomfortable.

"The angel thing means it's. Complicated."
