Appt Director (NPC) Liana Moondrift: An avariel female that is very sweet, but very strict at the same time.
The Bushranger

Quinn arrives home from the beach, and hurries into her closet to change.

Afterwards, deciding to practice using her psionic powers to depart!
Obscurejones

Edward comes to a stop outside his apartment, fiddling with the lock.
The Bushranger

Aleksandra jogs up behind him, and runs in place while he fiddles.
Obscurejones

He gives her an odd look but manages to open the door.  Tries to beat her to the shower.
The Bushranger

She races him!
But lets the Wookiehim win!
Giggling as she goes to slip off her pack.
Obscurejones

He's not that hairy yet.  But give him until the end of the shower.
The Bushranger

Aleksandra decides to fix coffee while she waits.
Obscurejones


Edward walks out, trying to get a feel for his new hair.
Well?  Better or worse?
She may notice that the coat is one that Alex discarded while he was here.
The Bushranger

She might notice, and raises an eyebrow. Debating whether or not to comment on it.
"I love the hair. Not so sure about the lumberjack's goatee, though." She smiles, walking over. "And I don't recall that jacket from before..."
Take A Third Option?
Obscurejones

He nods and whips out a razor, removing the goatee in two quick swipes.
Willing to keep me like this?
The Bushranger

I assume the new tektek is supposed to be sans goatee.

"Sweetheart, I'll keep you like that for sure. Ah...might want to lose the jacket, though."
Obscurejones



Thought you might like it.
See?  Still mad.  Just subtler about it.
The Bushranger

Aleks blushes.
"Well. It does look good on  you," she admits. "You do know it's his, right?"
BURN IT WITH FIRE!
Obscurejones

Oh really?  Hadn't occurred to me.
Huh, turns out Edward can be immensely sarcastic.  Good to know.
The Bushranger

She smiles and simply hugs him.
Tightly.

...while planning to burn the jacket the first time she's home alone. Razz
Obscurejones

he hugs her back just as tightly.  

Resolves not to tell her about the copies of the jacket he had made.  Razz
The Bushranger

Razz

"I made some coffee while you were showering," she says, perhaps muffled by his shoulder.
Obscurejones

He nods and tries to let go so they can have the coffee.
The Bushranger

She lets go after a moment longer than he does. And heads for the kitchen.
Obscurejones

He follows, whistling that same far touched tune.
The Bushranger

Her brain decides to build a fort inside her skull.

And she pours two cups of coffee!

No poison. Since he trashed it all. Well, all that was here.
Obscurejones

She could always go ask Alex for more.  I'm sure he'd give it to her in exchange.  Twisted Evil

Edward sips his coffee and the whistling switches to coming from his coat.
The Bushranger

Equivilant Exchange? Razz

The change in whistling gets Aleksandra's attention.
She blinks.
Looks at his coat.
Then at his face.
Then back at his coat.
Obscurejones

The face is drinking coffee.  The coat is whistling.  Whistling coat.
The Bushranger

"Edward? Your coat is whistling."

Thank you, Captain Obvious.
Obscurejones

He smirks and lifts his lips from his coffee.
Thank you, Captain Obvious.
The Bushranger

That catches her off guard.
And she laughs.
"Captian Obvious next asks. why is your coat whistling?"

And is it wolf-whistling at her?
Obscurejones

Nope.  Just that far tune.
Thought it might be useful.
The Bushranger

"Well, it is certainly different."
She grins. Sips her coffee.
Obscurejones

He nods and finishes his coffee.  The coat silences for a moment.  Whistles at Aleks.  Edward frowns and slaps his coat on the sleeve.
The Bushranger

She blinks.
Grins.
Then giggles.

"Sounds like your coat has hidden tricks up its sleeve."
Obscurejones

Damn thing has a mind of it's own.  Might have to make sure it's house trained.
The Bushranger

"...in that case, I don't even want to know what it eats..."
Obscurejones

He grins and adjusts his lapels.
Small children, black goats, pesky ravens, annoying neighbors, virgins.
The Bushranger

"...just as long as you aren't on the menu."
And she grins back as she finishes her coffee.
Obscurejones

He tries to think if he qualifies for anything on the list.
Am I annoying to our neighbors?
The Bushranger

She chuckles.
"Depends on if the neighbors are annoying themselves, I'd say."
Obscurejones

Right. Damn.  The coat may try to eat me.
The Bushranger

"If it does, then I'll make it puke."
She narrows her eyes at the coat!
Obscurejones

The coat doesn't respond.  Edward narrows his eyes at it as well.
The Bushranger

Aleks goes to poke the coat.

Right in the button hole!

"I'll do it!"
Obscurejones

The coat doesn't respond.  Frightfully rude of it.  Edward does look a little annoyed though.
The Bushranger

"Hmpf."

Aleks shakes her head, then gives Edward a kiss on the cheek before turning to head back to her coffee.
Obscurejones

Edward heads for the door.
The Bushranger

"Going somewhere?" she asks curiously.
Obscurejones

Was going to sing a few songs at Trog's.
The Bushranger

"Want me to come with, or should I see about spring cleaning?" she offers.
Obscurejones

Your call.  I sort of cleansed this place a few days ago.
The Bushranger

"Well, then, I think I'll go with you. Just give me a moment to get changed..."
Obscurejones

He nods and waits.  Taps his foot to get a beat going.  The coat picks up on and continues the sound.  he starts to hum.
The Bushranger

Aleksandra emerges after a few minutes. And, smiling at Edward, turns for his inspection.

Obscurejones

He grins and crooks a finger at her, gesturing for her to come close.
The Bushranger

She smiles, and does, indeed, come closer, tossing her hair back.
Obscurejones

He gives her a quick gentle kiss.
It looks very nice.
The Bushranger

She kisses back softly.
"Thank you, love."
And she goes to slip her arm into his.
Obscurejones

He takes her arm and heads for the tavern.
The Bushranger

...and here comes Quinn down the street, cheeks tear-stained as she arrives outside the apartments, pausing at the door.
Obscurejones

Slither follows on foot, his speed returned now that he's out of the cold.
I didn't mean to hurt you.  He just... It's not right the way he treats you.
The Bushranger

Quinn pauses, then turns to look at him, taking a deep breath.
"I thought I wanted to be treated that way. And...well...it feels good sometimes. But...I only like it if I'm actually cared for too..."

Seems the adrenaline is finally slipping out of her.

"I just don't want to be alone."
Obscurejones

He runs a hand through his hair nervously.
I was... I was thinking you wouldn't have to be.  
The Bushranger

"I just...it used to be...I was happy. But Mel was so....well, cool. And fun. And...addictive. And he...he was the same. Made me remember how good it felt..."

She's babbling, and only half-listening.

"But I don't want to be with somebody who doesn't care. And somebody who...I just want my friends back."

And Quinn collapses to the ground. Sobbing.
Obscurejones

He gently tries to pick her up and carry her inside.
The Bushranger

She puts up no resistiance, burying her face in his shoulder and crying.
Obscurejones

He carries her to bed and tucks her in.  Sits on the edge of the bed.
I'll... Leave if you want me to.  Let you be.
The Bushranger

"No. Please, stay."
Quinn looks up at him, taking a deep, shuddering breath.
"I don't think I need protecting...but I do want company."
Obscurejones

He nods and moves to sit by her on the floor next to the bed.
The Bushranger

Quinn lays there quietly, for quite awhile, in fact. Before speaking up again, her voice soft.
"Why do you like me so much?"
Obscurejones

You're sweet.  You remind me of someone I can't remember.  You deserve better than what you've been given by life.  You deserve someone who cares about you and what's what's best for you.
(deadtime.  Need sleep.  And sleep.  And sleep.)
The Bushranger

Quinn blushes deeply, and looks away. But there is a hint of a smile on her lips.
"You're sweet..."

(Sleep? What's that, something you do?
'Night!)
Obscurejones

He smiles gently at her.
I try to be.
The Bushranger

Quinn giggles softly, then runs a finger across her choker. Frowns.
"I just...I'm not sure what I should do. Or even what I want to do."
Obscurejones

He shrugs.
Think it out.  Figure out if I'm right about Alex.  Decide what you want.  I can promise you that whatever you choose you'll only be alone if you want to be.
The Bushranger

Quinn smiles a little, and reaches for his hand.
"Thank you."
Obscurejones

He takes her hand and gives it a little squeeze.
The Bushranger

She smiles, looks to debate for a moment, then leans over for a kiss.
Obscurejones

He returns the kiss.  He's blushing but it's a bit hard to see beneath the scales.
The Bushranger

Quinn pulls away after a few minutes.
"Can...you stay for awhile?"
Obscurejones

He nods, eagerly but with restraint.
The Bushranger

Her smile grows, and she then moves to sit in his lap.
Obscurejones

She'll have to get out of bed, but once she's there his tail wraps around her waist protectively.
The Bushranger

Then out of bed she gets!
And she giggles at the scaly restraint.
"You know, I kinda like it when you do that."
Obscurejones

He looks down.
Huh.  Didn't even notice it.
The Bushranger

Quinn giggles, tucking her head under his chin.
"Notice it or not, I like it. And it's sweet too."
Obscurejones

He blushes, this time enough to get through the scales.
You're sweet.
The Bushranger

And that makes Quinn blush, too!
"Thanks. I...still don't know what to do for sure but I do know I...don't want you to run off or hide when he gets back."
Obscurejones

That sounds like a-
And Alex comes bursting into the apartment.
Quinn?  You here?
The Bushranger

Bad idea?
Possibly.

"In the bedroom, Sir" Quinn calls. "And no fighting!"

Even though it's not the War Room.
Obscurejones

Alex walks in and looks over Slither.
You're here.
Yes.
You tried to kill me.
Yes.
I'm stating the obvious.
Slither just nods.
The Bushranger

"And if either of you tries to kill the other again my final answer will be 'neither'," Quinn points out, looking between the two of them.
Obscurejones

Alright.  I won't freeze the lizard and he won't snap my neck.
Slither nods.  Alex smiles graciously and turns to Quinn.
You like having someone can control you.  You like whips, and chains, and being told to heel.  But you also want someone who can look you in the eye and say they care if you live or die.
He smirks.
I can give you one of those things.  The reptile can give you the other.  So why not have both.  I'll allow it if the lizard will.
The Bushranger

Quinn bites her lip.
Looks at Alex.
Then looks at Slither.
Obscurejones

Slither doesn't say anything.  Alex waits patiently, hands in pockets.
The Bushranger

Quinn closes her eyes.
Submissive or not, she hates decisions like this, becasue no matter what she chooses, somebody won't be happy...

"That...would be fine with me," she says finally.
Obscurejones

Slither thinks for a moment and then nods.
I call weekdays.
Are we counting Fridays as weekends?
Quinn?  Your call.
The Bushranger

"Friday nights counting as weekends?" Quinn suggests, blushing. And smiling.
Obscurejones

Alright.  At least I still get the majority of the time.
And I get time to play.
They both smile.  Alex a little more honestly than Slither.
The Bushranger

Quinn feels she's getting in over her head.
But still smiles!

"And neither of you is going to fight or try and kill the other." She sounds the happiest at that.
Obscurejones

... She means around her, right?
Right.
They grin at each other predatorily.
The Bushranger

Quinn rolls her eyes. Giggles.
"Psion here, you know. Don't make me keeel you with my brain."
