Default 3.23.331 | Hope Is a thing With Feathers | Lucia, Jayme [ask to join]

Lucia was hesitant to see him. Not because she was hesitant about him, but because she wasn't... and that was what was causing the hesitation. But she really did want to see him. If for no other reason than because he was one of the few people she truly felt safe around, and right now... she craved that feeling. So she sought him now... First checked Jason's apartments and then the training yard where she was certain the tall figure at the far end might have been him. So she waited... If he was training she didn't want to disturb him. In fact, she decided to try to take solace in the time she had, finding a seat in a shaded place and losing herself in her thoughts.

It was a while before she saw him, and she hurried to her feet to get his attention before he walked on by. "Lord Jayme," she called, slowing as she neared, her cheeks already turning a healthy shade of pink and her smile turning just a little shy. "Good morning. I... I..." Should she tell him she was waiting for him? Would that make her seem... silly? She wasn't sure.

"I was hoping to catch you. It's just that it's been a while since we spoke that last time in Vellesca and... I thought maybe you and I could go for a walk together?"

He raised his brows, but smiled nonetheless. "You are positive my looks and smell will not offend?" Jayme had, indeed, been training...he wished to be quick on his reflexes for the tourney, after all. "If not, I should be pleased to take you up on your invitation, my lady."

She shook her head. "Not at all, my lord," she said, holding her hand out for his arm. "I spend much of my free time in Vellesca in the magister's tower. It'll take more than sweat and dirt to turn my stomach."

"Thank the gods for small miracles then." He offered her his arm. "You look much better than when I saw you last. I trust you feel better as well?"

Her smile grew, and her fingers curled around his arm, fingertips pressing lightly against the cloth of his sleeve. "All healed, I suppose..." she said unconvincingly. "In some ways. In others... it is still a process... And you? Are you well?"

"I am." He was conscious of her hand on his arm, and of his stride; thus, he kept the walk at a somewhat leisurely place. "Though I find this city has a somewhat...unsettling air. I don't know if it is just me, or if others might feel this. But...yes."

"It isn't just you," she said, her fingers tightening without realizing it. She was not one who considered herself to be clingy, so it didn't occur to her that clinging is exactly what she was doing. "I... will be happy to put Delving to our backs... I... I don't feel safe here," she said, her voice as soft as a breath.

"Why not?" His voice dropped to where only she could hear. "Has anyone threatened you? If so..." Jayme slowed his pace even more. He wanted to know...he felt protective of her. Strangely so.

She shook her head. "No... Not specifically," she whispered. "But I have spoken to those who have made me all too aware of the tower..." She was about so say more, but then her voice caught. If so? She looked up at him with an unspoken question in her eyes. "I... don't feel safe in Delving... But... but I knew I would feel safe with you. And... and I wasn't wrong."

"That eyesore needs to be torn down." Jayme saw the worry in her eyes, and he wanted nothing more than to alleviate those worries. "I'm glad you feel safe with me, Lucia. You have nothing to be afraid of from this insipid town, as long as I am near."

She let out a deep breath. "Then perhaps you ought to be near more often," she said with a shy grin. "Has... somebody already offered you their favor?"

"It might be questionable if I was constantly near you, dear lady," he chuckled. "And no...no favors offered. I was actually going to ask you which lucky man had the honor of wearing yours."

"Who would question it?" Lucia wondered out loud. "Which lucky man? Hopefully you are that lucky man, my lord. Would you wear my favor?"

"Everyone," he finally laughed, and let his lips form into a large grin. "And you would have me wear your favors? Then I would be quite honored, my lady."

"I don't think so, my lord. You're the only person who sees me," she told him, though she smiled up at him as she said it. "Oh good. I was afraid some fortunate woman had beaten me to asking you. I had already steeled myself for disappointment and everything."

"We can't have you being disappointed, now can we? Now, my lady...are these favors to be given to me now," he said, quite conscious of his teasing tone. "...or are they to be given to me at a later date?"

"There'd be tears and everything... and I've been told I'm quite a sight when those appear," she grinned. "I've never given a favor before. Not seriously..." she confessed. "I've just the thing... but I do not have it with me. If you'd like it now, my lord, we can pass by the apartments so I can get it... Lest you may have to suffer accepting it in front of an audience," she chuckled.

"Tears, eh? We cannot have that. In regards to your favor...I would not mind accepting it in front of an audience...though privately might be just the thing. Secrets and such are all the more fun." Jayme nodded. "I shall let you steer us in that direction, my lady."

"No... I think if you should ever make me cry, the least you could do would be to kiss my tears better," she said softly. "So... you are competing in the jousts? Or the melee? Or is it both? Gods, is this how it feels? To be anxious about somebody competing? You'll promise to be careful?"

"The jousts. And dear lady, don't fret. I have not yet died while competing in any kind of tourney. But I promise, on my honor, to be careful...perhaps your favor will bring me some luck." Jayme assured her. "We can only hope..."

"I can't imagine how it couldn't... I think I've already used all the bad luck associated with me this year. Though, if you get hurt now, I don't know that I wouldn't feel at least slightly responsible. So... another reason to be extra careful. Unless your plan all along is to get me to keep you company at your bedside."

"That was my plan," he said, and gave a playful gasp. "How did you know? I should take care not to reveal too much of my plans around you, lest you find out all my secrets."

Lucia laughed, and with some surprise realized that the smiling was actually making her cheeks feel sore. Had she really not smiled so much of late? "That's right, my lord. Make me work for it," she teased. "I'll have to take the same care... Because I have a terrible feeling I'd let you know everything if you just asked."

"I am pleased to know that I am someone who has your trust. It is not misplaced or misguided." At this, he sounded a bit more serious. "I shall never betray your secrets, if you ever choose to give them to me."

Lucia felt a surge of something deep inside of her, and before she knew it, she'd stopped walking and turned to face him fully. Her fingers tightened around his arm again and she got onto her toes, her lips pressing a soft kiss to his cheek. "Thank you," she whispered. "I hope you know that I'd never do that either... Anything said between us is ours and nobody else's. You have my promise."

He wanted to return the kiss in kind and in perhaps a less platonic manner, but he managed to refrain. But it was hard. Gods..."Of course." Jayme put his hand under her chin so she would keep his gaze. "There is nothing devious or dishonest about you...you do not have it in you to be as such."

Her hands came up to rest against his chest, and she felt tears beginning to line the rim of her eyes, blurring her sight just a little. She sucked in a sharp breath and then shook her head. "It's not fair..." she said softly. "Damn it... Why do you have to be so... so lovely? Fuck..."

"Tears?" Her wiped at her cheeks with the pad of his thumb. "Come now, none of those, my lady. And why do I have to be so lovely? I was just about to ask you the same question. In regards to me, of course," he teased, to try and make her smile. "But also in regards to you."

She did smile, but it was a mixture of happiness and sorrow. "I wish I wasn't a Vellfyre..." she whispered as though it were some dark secret. "I wish I was somebody who could have you... I wish I could imagine a future with you and it not be just wishful thinking... The fancy of a stupid girl who doesn't know any better..."

"You don't know how much I wish to take you...in marriage, as well as in truth," he admitted. "Though the reality of things tends to remind our hearts that our hearts are silly creatures sometimes, hmm?" He kissed her lips, the kiss being chaste, soft. "The heart wants what it wants, my lady. You can't call it stupid for having its desires."
