Default 3.25 night, after feast - a wedding night - Rhaegar, Elinor (it's ok to interrupt. no, really. they're ok with that...)

Rhaegar escorted his new wife from the hall with polite words and proper form, leaving her to the care of her ladies. Seyfert was not one to approve of bedding ceremonies so at least there were no drunken fools trying to tear off either of their clothing. Rhaegar left her with her maid to presumably do whatever wailing or praying Edolene virgins did before consummating a marriage, while he went and sought out some of his men for a few last jests about said virgins and a couple more drinks to fortify his patience.

Judging she'd had enough time to bathe or hang herself, he made his way back to the borrowed bower and knocked before he entered. Most of the court was crowded into shared rooms, so there were a number of people in even more crowded beds this evening, as per the royal orders the newlyweds got one night of privacy before someone came in the morning to check the sheets and pronounce the consummation complete. Rhaegar's squires were kicked out to the hallway though he had no idea where Elinor's maid would sleep. Hopefully not with his squire, for her sake. Poor girl deserved a better time than the boy would manage.

He waved the maid off and turned his attention on Elinor. "My lady." He made a shallow bow. "I hope you enjoyed the evening."

I am married. The words kept bouncing around in her skull as if she was tamping down every last iota of a dream that should have been snuffed out. Of course, she knew what happened when two people were wed. Then there were unanswered questions that also shrouded her like a dark cape figuring that most would eventually be answered and not having the nerve to ask. As Rhaegar escorted her to their appointed rooms for the evening, at least the prayers of not having a bedding ceremony was heard. It was daunting enough to re-work her entire plan and to acknowledge how everything would be vastly different, but another to be undressed by a number of people she may or may not know while being taken to bed.

She did not speak for the time being only because she did not trust herself and what would come out of her mouth thus breaking another more personal vow she made to herself to make it up for her lapse of judgment. There was so much to make up for, but she still felt her uncle's hands about her throat. How easily he could have snatched the life out of her at his whim, but there was also shame. There was the shame that she was the one that he was unpleased with. Thinking back on it, she could not understand why she did all those things and when she rounded each corner decidedly made the wrong move. Was she filled with guile as well and that was making her attempts to destroy everything that the King demanded of her? She could honestly not say, but it was time to make amends to Rothgar, to the rest of her family especially Lucia who seemed to look at her with impatience and disdain. It hurt every time their eyes might meet to see all that hatred towards her.

Before anything was done, she fell to her knees and prayed fervently. Her prayer beads were in her hand as her fingers rubbed each bead for each prayer that was made. Patience, empathy, bravery, obediance, charity, wisdom, strength...and love. Once her prayers were completed, she rose and gave herself over to Sola to prepare for her husband's return.

While her clothes were replaced for a robe and her hair was being brushed out, there was so much on her mind that was creating a dizzying effect with the promise an ache to start in her head if she did not begin to focus and force the thoughts that could not be controlled out of her mind to deal with for another time. Her maid, Sola offered her a goblet of wine which she was about to refuse due to habit, but then took a few sips of it in an attempt to settle her nerves. Then took a few more wanting to be docile instead of skittish for Rhaegar's return.

Was that seven sips or nine? She lost count, but after she was prepared for bed, she just sat upon the edge of it without a thought in her head. The lack of food and the sips of wine seemed to make her feel fuzzy and warm from the inside out and upon her husband's return, she did not jump up in fright or look pale with dread as the door opened to reveal Rhaegar standing before her while dismissing her maid. "I cannot say that enjoyed would be the word I would use." Her cheeks were pink and her eyes were doe-eyed and glossy, but not narrowed or blurry due to intoxication.

"I am sorry," she started and then hesitated for a moment. "I-I do not believe this is what you expected during the progress and to me no less. I still feel terrible that I might have inadvertently displeased your father and would like to say that I have not felt like myself since the plague hit and then the riots. I hope to make a difference and---and not continue to be a disappointment as your wife."

"Everything displeases Gawen," Rhaegar answered with a shrug. "Whatever you have done, Lady, it could not be worse than the series of disappointments I have rendered him since my birth." His Asseryan accent was thicker, because he'd been drinking and he was tired. He kept his distance, gauging the woman sitting on the bed he was meant to share with her.

"You have endured both plague and violence since the year turned. You would have to be made of stone not to find it trying. And I never wished to wed a statue." With that he walked over to grab the wine jug and pour a cup for himself. "I was not told what agreements you might have made with Gawen. I assume you two had already spoken of arrangements for the household but I fear something of it will needs change now we are the ones wedded. You will be Lady Vayth but I will not call on you to attend it for some months. I wish to be sure the place is safe, and my father has not left some contingency plan in place to force my uncle as his successor."

She noticed that Rhaegar referred to his father as Gawen and told her a bit of his relationship with the man she met. It was quite obvious they were not close and it sounded like it was due to Lord Vayth. His words did not actually alleviate any of the anxiety because of what happened after such a meeting, but it only made her sad that life was difficult since birth. However, she felt relief to be married to Rhaegar and not Gawen. There was that at least.

A delicate smile appeared at Rhaegar's acceptance of her apology. "I do not believe I have ever been described as a statue and well...." she felt nervous when he walked over and relaxed when he grabbed the wine jug to pour himself a cup. "I am determined not to be labeled as such."

She recalled exactly what came out of the conversation when Gawen demanded someone else to marry. It was her question to retain her position in Princess Valencia's retinue, but she hesitated in answering allowing Rhaegar to continue. What he disclosed made her blink and feel a flood of relief, but it did not quite register on her face for him to read. "After tonight, what changes will I expect? Will you leave the progress to head...home to make it a safe place or will you continue on with us until a designated date?" Even though he was not privy to Gawen's plans for her changing it slightly to keep her on the King's progress, she wanted to know where he would be and what to look forward to to ensure she was not caught off guard. Of course, well made plans often changed.

"I'll continue with you to Mirrormount. Perhaps to Moonspire if we see too many signs of unrest on the borders. Then I will return to Tal Vayth." He took a drink at the thought of that. "You might as well keep on with the Progress, unless you want to return north to Volorro by then. I believe the princess is due to deliver her babe in fifth month and I have no idea how long the king intends to tarry on this trip."

He still watched her, but kept his distance. "IF you don't come north, then when the court returns, I will send a few new attendants to you. Vassals' daughters and such like."

A nod was managed and she looked pensive despite feeling the effects of the wine. His suggestion seemed too good to be true and she hoped to be back by Valencia's side to help with her delivery. She also had no idea how long the king would continue on, but if she had Rhaegar's permission perhaps she would be back in Tal Volorro at least to offer her support to Valencia whether the baby came out healthy or stillborn.

She felt Rhaegar's eyes upon her and having a neutral but pensive expression allowed her to keep her thoughts closely guarded. His wording was interesting and she felt that he was testing her. There was no instant relief at the news or any real reaction except a slight tilt of her head as she asked, "Is that what you desire?" It was not a command and it sounded as if he was attempting to empower her that she had the decision to stay in Tal Volorro or eventually go north, but she did not wish to readily fall into this trap if it were just that.

"When you believe it to be safe, I will meet you in our new home. I shall prepare for that moment, but if it continues to be unsafe and you wish me to stay in Tal Volorro, I would be honored to receive a few new attendants to keep them safe and to present them properly to the King's court."

He blinked when she questioned his desire but after a hesitation he shrugged. "You should do what you wish in this. I have no interest in enforcing misery. If you want to visit Tal Vayth at some point before matters are settled, I have no objection. And if you wish to stay with Valencia, I have no objection. It is as useful to keep some vassals' children well out of their reach and in your sight and my power as it is to have a woman running the household. I can summon Maressa from the temple for a time to see to the castle until matters are settled."

Rhaegar's words sunk in and she could not help but give him a grateful smile at such an opportunity, but she wanted this opportunity to be clear and to gain his words so she would not offend him unknowingly in their future...together. "My wish is to forge an understanding between us. An alliance o-or a friendship. Even though this was not my plan for my future, I-I need to make amends for my actions and to re-gain favor with our King."

Her eyes glittered with unshed tears while she blamed her weakness at the moment on the wine and all of the events that only managed to compound all of her stress. She felt hated by everyone and Rhaegar gave her an opportunity to make amends instead of secreting her away to the North never to really be seen again. The tears were blinked back and she cleared her throat suddenly feeling very shy, vulnerable and at a loss for words. The small smile revealed that the tears were not necessarily disappointment or sadness.

"I would like to see Tal Vayth someday and--and if you have need of me, please do not hesitate to ask. I-I do not see you as a monster, Ser Rhaegar and I do not wish to project my disappointment onto you. I hope to see you as a partner and..." She hesitated and could not really finish the sentence without her nerves fraying slightly. "well...and husband, of course." She was a lot more nervous than she realized, but her eloquence was broken up with a slight stutter which she attempted to control by slowing her speech.

He nodded and then took a deep drink of the wine. He paused before setting the cup aside and walking toward where she sat on the bed, but he kept a few bit of distance between them as he sat. "Let me hear first what disfavor you may have to overcome. That will need to be remedied if you are remaining in court once I am gone." His voice was quiet, the accent still thick but as he spoke, his dark eyes remained intent on her face. "I am a sellsword, Elinor. I will not balk at ugly truths... Speak honestly with me, always. That is what I ask of you."

Elinor tensed slightly but forced herself to relax while trying not to look like she was a lamb being led to slaughter. However, when he asked why she was currently in disfavor it made her hesitate further wondering what to say or rather how to say it. "I did not think before I spoke and my actions were questionable. These rumors were generated that the King got wind of and felt that I was purposely attempting to destroy his plans." She could not meet his gaze as she continued, "There were doubts and whispers that I was too close with Lord Sollis, but he is just kin and a friend. Most consider him different, but I just thought he needed a person to talk to during the crisis regarding his ex-wife. I have severed all of my ties with Lord Sollis...and I am unsullied. It hurt that people would jump to such conclusions about me..." Her words and thoughts cut off when her mind finished the sentence...even my own sister.

She finally looked back up to meet his eyes, to weight his expression and said, "I have always prided myself for my honesty, but my current lapse of judgment has my reputation in tatters. Except I am married now and everything will change...should. I think?" Then she began to wring her hands as she added, "I am nervous."

"Of course you are nervous. You have not been wed before. I have at least gone through this once already." Rhaegar sighed and his hand reached for hers, though the motion was slow and gave her time enough to jerk back if she wanted to.

"The conclusions were more about Sollis than you, Lady. He may have forced himself on another in the court... few men of any thought would trust him with a woman, whatever he claimed. But I assure you, any insult to you after this day may answer to my blade. Add that to the fact you will not be seen with Sollis, and your reputation will recover."

This whole situation reminded her of a time when they had received fresh horses that were still rather skittish to the newness of their surroundings. Rhaegar's understanding was the first step to calm her nerves. At first, he stayed a distance away to allow her to get used to him. Then slowly and innocuously, he drew closer and she did not shy away. She was not afraid of him just of what would be inevitable. It needed to be done or else their King would hear the news, be disappointed with her once again and actually wait until they were away from Delving to prepare a bedding ceremony thus punishing her with humiliation.

The thoughts of her uncle being further displeased with her managed to stay her hand when he reached for it and she attempted to be comfortable with his touch. However, there was genuine surprise and concern at Rhaegar's words regarding Edric. "He was nothing but kind to me, but if he had done what you mentioned, perhaps he was just scheming further to gain my trust." Another delicate smile and a gentle nod of her head. It seemed sad and wrong, but it was one versus many that she needed to think of.

She had momentarily run out of things to say and fell into awkward silence. "Do you like what you do?" When another question popped into her head as he mentioned before that he was a sellsword and the mention of answering to his sword knowing that she was stalling, but worse to just sit there saying nothing.

He kept his hand light on Elinor's and his thumb moved in a small circle against the back of her hand. "Yes." Rhaegar's lips turned in a faint smile- which from him was nearly a grin. "It is not an easy life but I am familiar with the risks. It is simple, in its ways: you fight, you take the coin, and you fight again. I am honest, Lady: I may go west again someday, or south. The prince will not pay my men forever, and Tal Vayth needs coin that I know but one sure way to earn."

He reached up to touch her hair, smoothing a lock of it at the side of her head. "I am sorry you will not have the life of every lady. You may be alone to run the lands while I am gone. You may be a widow young. But I am hoping you will pray for my safety rather than my absence. Someday."

When Rhaegar`s thumb began to gently graze the back of her hand, she noticed how nice it felt. Soothing and the contact or caress was causing her skin to warm and react with the occasional flutter. Her cheeks were still flushed and she suddenly pulled her lower lip into her mouth as her teeth bit down upon the flesh before unconsciously licking her lips.

"I like honesty." She whispered and then averted her gaze feeling flushed and affected by his smile for some reason. A nod was managed when he mentioned having to eventually leave to line Tal Vayth coffers.

Her eyes flew up to meet his once more as he touched her hair having a difficult time concentrating on what he said. "I would not have had the life of a lady if I remained unwed Ser Rhaegar. There is no need to apologize." A gentle frown appeared at the mention of becoming a young widow and she did not like that thought and finally met his eyes once more. "I would pray for your safety even as my husband. I do not hold you in contempt and do not wish your absence! Injuiry...or death."

"Well then. Marriages have begun on worse footing." His hand lingered on her hair then moved so his fingertips brushed her cheek before he withdrew it to raise her other hand up and place a kiss on her hand, just by her thumb. "If it is not my absence you wish for... then what do you wish, Elinor? I cannot put you aside but I could perhaps find some way to give you the things you desire in life, if I am knowing them."

It was definitely difficult to ignore him and what he was doing felt...interesting. No, if she was being honest it felt lovely and with the wine in her system it was easier to accept it. His lips were soft and warm where they touched her hand. "For the longest time, I only thought of dedicating my future to the goddess Edelina. Even when I was betrothed I already held the hope that it would change. I have to admit I do not know what I want just yet. I need time to adjust to my new future."

"But you are now my future and those that you hold dear," she added sheepishly.

"I am sure Edelina hears the prayers of married ladies just as well." He stroked her hair again and this time let his hand touch her neck, lightly brushing her shoulder. "I should kiss you, Elinor... but I will not force this. Duty can wait a few nights, if you are nervous."

The roughness of his hand upon her bare skin made her skin react with a warm tingling sensation as she felt her breath hitch slightly and escape in short bursts. No fear was displayed only something new.

She did not even realize that her eyes closed until she heard him say that he should kiss her. "I cannot say I would be a good kisser. Do you want to kiss me or is it only out of duty?" She asked softly wanting to know a bit more of what he was thinking and not just dwelling upon her.

"You are beautiful, Lady Elinor. Any man who had permission would be wishing to kiss you." He touched her cheek again and leaned closer. "I think you will be sweet to kiss," he whispered before his lips grazed hers.

The woman prided herself at being a virtuous woman, but hearing Rhaegar saying that she was beautiful was like some of the poetry she read to train her stuttering ailment when she was younger. Again her eyes closed as he touched her cheek and then after his sweet whisper she felt his lips graze hers.

It amazed her at such a simple gesture managed to make her heart hammer in her chest. She did not kiss him back, but she liked what he did which created a bit of conflict inside her mind. All of it was ignored knowing that waiting would get her into trouble even though Rhaegar offered it for another night. No. She was too afraid to disobey her uncle again even after she vowed to make it right.

"I-is that how all kisses are like?" She asked never having bothered to learn or pay attention to what the married women or the more looser women said about kissing let alone sex.

Rhaegar blinked in surprise, looked at her for a moment, then leaned in to kiss her again. "More are... like this." He put his lips on hers and let them linger, while his hand slid up her arm and around her shoulder to pull her toward him a little. He moved his lips on hers, without pressing for more just yet, simply teasing her lips with his.

She accepted the kiss yet did not know exactly how to respond. As he leaned in to kiss her she felt dizzy, but a far different feeling as to the effects of being intoxicated. Elinor leaned in with Rhaegar's help and as his lips lingered and tantalize hers, she wondered if mimicking his actions would reap similar results. Gingerly, she tried her hand at kissing him back hoping that her attempt was not too terrible.

He stilled for a heartbeat when her lips began to move, but he recognized the learning curve and kept kissing her, letting his hands slide down her back to urge her closer still. "I told you: sweet." He smiled and kissed her again. When he needed to draw a full breath to avoid losing his mind and shoving her down on the bed, he leaned back enough to see her eyes again. "You kiss as beautifully as I could have imagined," he reassured her. "Will you mind if I touch you...? You may refuse, Elinor. I am not the husband to force your attentions...."

Something as changing inside of her, she was warm and her skin sensitive. She could not breathe normally and had to pant to pull air into her lungs while her heart continued to thump hard in her chest. It was almost like the moment when you are about to swoon, but it does not go completely black.

His hands felt wonderful, warm, strong and calloused as he brought her closer to him and she no longer sat primly upon the edge of the bed, but pressed up against Rhaegar. His compliments made her blush, but only seemed to encourage her to keep trying.

"T-touch?" She asked a bit breathlessly trying to gather her wits about her. "Where?" She asked as she looked down to see where he would touch her waiting to see where his hands went first.

His smile was faint but slow, and he put his hands on her shoulders, let his fingers slide down her back... "Where do you want me to touch? I could slide your shift off and stroke your back, Lady. I could... stroke your stomach and hips and up... I could touch your breasts to see if you enjoyed it." He lifted his hand up to smooth her hair again. "I could touch any part of you, if you wanted it."

The tendrils of pleasure was stronger and something she had never experienced before and that was just by his fingers sliding down her back. Could she even hold herself together if he touched her bare back? She started to blush a bit redder, but did not shy away. The robe was rumpled and falling away from her shoulders and the blush also made her shoulders pink as well as her knees hot, but that is something that no one would ever realize.

She nibbled her bottom lip. Well there was a whole lot he could do as she attempted to decide. Him asking her also managed to empower her while enticing her. "My back felt wonderful when you touched me there." She answered not feeling quite as confident if he decidedly touched her breasts or anywhere close to and below her midsection. What if she swooned by these feelings stirring within which he only seemed to be encouraging and intensifying with each kiss and caress.

"Did it?" He finished pushing her robe down before his hands moved back to stroke her shoulders. His hands bore the calluses of sword and shield, reins and gauntlets so he kept his touch light, lest she object to rougher skin than her own. "Turn a bit, Elinor. I know a few tricks to help you relax..." He ran careful fingertips up to stroke the back of her neck, and swept her hair away to the side to so he could trace from the nape of her neck down, his hands spreading out below her shoulder blades to warm more of her back.

Her robe was pushed down and she freed her arms from it and his rhetorical question made her blush a bit more brightly knowing he just wanted confirmation that he had an effect on her. His touch made her forget just for a moment however and she turned when he asked just to feel his fingertips stroke the back of her neck down to her shoulder blades causing her to tremble and her body to jump slightly with while causing her to breath to occasionally get caught in her throat in soft pants. "I never realized how sensitive I am there." she whispered softly and groaned as he managed to find a knot that began to warm and become malleable in his capable hands.

However, as soon as the groan sounded, she tensed and held herself very still.

"Most people are," he informed her in a whisper. "It is allowed to sound appreciative," he said when she stilled. In contrast, he kept his hands moving over her back, tracing the lines of her muscles and adding only mild pressure here and there when he felt a knot. He took a chance and bent his head to place a kiss on the back of her neck. "I could not let you try sleep as tense as a soldier before battle."

As if anticipating her hesitation and slightly appalled that the groan came from her, Rhaegar's words were reassuring. It felt delightful and she began to calm as each knot was infiltrated and they melted away under his skillful hands.

Even when he placed the kiss upon the nape of her neck, a soft sound escaped and she shuddered again as the heated tendrils moved down her back. Absentmindedly, Elinor asked softly, "we will sleep then?"
