Default 3.26.31 | Arrogance of Youth | Jason, Rothgar (super closed)

To say that he was dreading this conversation was not only accurate, it didn't quite encompass just how much. The moment he'd left to carry out his father's orders, he already knew he would not be able to avoid it... And he realized that there was absolutely nothing he could do to make this feel any less uncomfortable. So, after he promised his wife he would return to her afterward, he made the short yet agonizingly slow walk back to his father's chambers.

After asking for an audience, he was shown in and he bowed before the king, his eyes averted. "Your grace..." he began, his voice even but soft. "I wish to apologize for not reporting back to you sooner... The chaos of the day has kept me... occupied." And shaken, but he didn't need to say that. In fact Jason was careful to keep his hands at his side to make the shaking less apparent.

"Hmph." Rothgar didn't turn from the window to acknowledge his son's entrance but he gave in and waved off the boy's apology. "As it has all of us. And what have you to report of all the chaos?"

"Lord Kyle seems... calmed. At least appeased by your ruling concerning Darres. The tower is contained... It will not be safe, however, to search when the fires have died completely... If there's anybody to be found, it will be when the rubble is being cleaned... But I'm not optimistic Ryan will be easily identified... The Seyfert guards appear to be at ease with their new lord... No apparent whispers of discontent. If anything, I think they prefer it... Otherwise... Nothing new to report."

"All's well that ends well, I suppose." He turned to look at his son. "You approve of Kyle? He'll be your marcher-lord one day. If you doubt him, best sort it out now, while you have an excuse."

"I do," Jason nodded. "He's definitely not a coward... Demanding money and blood as reparations from Solvitreo...? Not any lord would have dared." He met his father's gaze. "But I'm sure that's exactly why this may not be as over as well would hope."

Rothgar sighed. "Well? Which one do you expect to launch a new war, then?"

"I don't expect a new war... But I expect a bit more mess at least..." Jason shrugged. "I think Solvitreo will be subtle, but I don't think he'll be content to just leave it as it is..."

Rothgar nodded, but decided to speak after a moment. "He will be in a foul mood- and maybe foul enough to push his luck, but if we acknowledge Solvitreo importance, he'll settle down. And he needs me just now to sort out a mess with his northern vassals- whatever retribution he'd try will come after that, and with any luck, he'll have cooled off before he has time to consider it."

"It also helps that no harm actually came to his daughter... And the harm that came to his kin was done so by the stupidity of their own actions." He reached up to run his hand through his hair.

He hesitated... And then hesitated again. "About Par... About my wife... I apologize, father, for the way she spoke to you. She had no right... and it will not happen again."

"Knowing Adhemar the loss of a dower might be less welcome than a daughter bearing a few stripes on her backside." He raised a brow. Speaking of backsides deserving stripes...

"Well, the girl was fostered with the Solvitreos. And she's her father's child. I wouldn't put store by that assurance, Jason." Rothgar's jaw clenched for a moment. "If it happens before the full court and not kith and kin, she'll have a sharper reminder. It does no good to break the spirit of your future queen, but she is your wife. What she does is seen as an extension of your actions. For better or for worse- and gods know there'll be days when you with you could lock her in the next tower, but you've got to learn how to play the card you were dealt. Rather like your high lords."

"I am well aware," Jason said somberly. "She is finding her way, and she will stumble, but she is learning. As I am learning how to play the cards that were dealt. Mountain women... they are a strange breed... With a Reach women, you can warn and threaten and they understand... You do that with a Mountain or a Shore's girl and they see it as a challenge..."

"There was a reason my father wed me to a Sollis." He sighed. "Just sort her out, Jason. She's going to be ten-and-seven in three more months. I don't intend her to run her own household that soon--she's obviously nowhere near responsible enough."

"Agreed... But she's a quick learner. That much I can say with confidence... The rest... I will guide her. And where I can't... I'll be sure that others are."

Rothgar arched a brow at his son. "That quick, hm? But not so quick to have her swell with child."

He snorted. "Tell me you're doing more than praying on it, boy. You're supposed to fuck her, not lead her in an incantation. You should've brought the rabbit. They're supposed to be some kind of fertility charm. You'll be lucky if Attericus doesn't send you another one at Mirrormount." Rothgar chuckled. "I know how much you must be missing the creature."

His jaw clenched and for a moment, something flashed behind his eyes as he regarded his father. "If somebody gives her another damned rabbit, it's going towards feeding a small village... Gods know they can... And do I really have to tell you... Or can I also pray that was one of those questions that I don't have to answer."

His brows rose but he waved off his son's annoyance. "There likely will be another rabbit. But I don't need to hear the details, thank you. I have to sit across from her father the next few days. I ought to make you do it but I suggest you make nice with Alaric."

Jason looked a bit suspiciously at his father then, but he just nodded. "I'll think of something."

There was no amusement left in his eyes after that. "Perhaps I can turn his attentions towards his cousin. She seems amenable."

"You could but as it turns out, Salindra's occupied. I do hope you're not going to object to my next mistress as much as you do Raisa." Rothgar smirked.

"I doubt that's possible," Jason said, leaning back. "Aren't you...?" He wisely stopped himself from asking the next question that came to mind. "Never mind..."

"Aren't I what?" he asked with a sharp look. "Tired of fucking beautiful women? Never, my boy. I hate to inform you but that particular joy doesn't fade with age. Best you plan your future accordingly."

Jason groaned, putting a hand over his eyes. "I don't... You did not hate to inform me of that... Ew," he said with a shudder.
