"Not often." Jacen grinned. "Nor often to meet such beauty unexpected. Wouldst consent to a dance, or may I escort thee in thy retreat? Was't where you were headed, ere you were so rudely accosted, was't not?"

"You did not demand it," he pointed out. "I offered... But if you are unsure... I suppose I could do something else with my time..."

"You already have..." Carolei's steps stopped and she turned her ehad to look at him, her lips turning in a pout that didn't quite line up with the gleam in her eyes. "Is Lady Carolin so more astounding than Lady Carolei, your highness? I doubt I will survive the night without weeping if I do not stop it with laughter."

"You flatter me, truly." Amina blushed, it hopefully not noticeable amidst the heat from dancing and the wine she was consuming. "And I was just going to take some air. If you wish to escort me outside for a brief respite, I can repay you later by granting your request of a dance."

She really needed not to pout. "I've never met a woman who could claim to be more astounding than Lady Carolei," he said. "There are better ways to survive the night, I think."

"Then let us escape, Lady." He offered her his arm and a wide smile. "Thy cheeks are flushed. Come, I would not have thee swoon so early 'pon the night."

She giggled. He spoke funny...but at least she could understand him. And he was kind. "Thank you, my lord." Amina took his arm. "I am grateful that you came to my rescue."

"Are there?" Carolei's pout faded and a small, sweet smile appeared. "I hope you would tell me of them. To give me something to consider when Lay Carolin inevitably reclaims you..."

Kain turned from the end of a conversation and caught a glimpse of Amina across the room, near the doors... and heading toward them with Jacen Mondragon. He snapped his fingers do draw one of the pages to him. "Find my wife, Lady Alys. And then bid my squire seek out Lady Amina Solvitreo for me. Whichever of them you find first will suit. I believe Tristifer is with Princess Parissa's group. Go." He waved the boy off then went to try to figure out what stupidity Alys had gotten into himself.

She had been approaching when he gave his order, and for a moment, it gave her pause. It wasn't hard to figure why. Still, she cleared her throat and put on the best smile she could fake. "If you would but turn around, you would find one of them," she answered pleasantly. "I suppose I shall suit?"

Aegor and Parissa were leaving the dance as she caught sight of Salindra across the way and waved to her cousin, beckoning Lin to join them if she wanted. They rejoined the group of laughing youths- squires and new-made knights, lordlings and the younger ladies of the court. The group of former Solarii wards still remained at the heart of the company but others had joined them, and more introductions were quickly made for Parissa as they handed her more wine.

"Hopefully Lady Carollin can keep Prince Bryce in a good humor tonight," she whispered to Aegor and another young man.

"He'd be the first man to have a better humor for being in her company..." the other muttered to general laughter.

"Pari, they're doing that ridiculous Bo Peep dance in the next set. You remember the one from Alo's nameday...?"

Parissa's jaw dropped and she put her hand over her mouth with a shriek of laughter. "How'd you sneak that one by Lady Carolin?"

"Her younger daughter," Aegor admitted with a grin. "She's not so bad. You'd like her. She's around somewhere... I'll introduce you later, if you want?"

"Of course!"

"And you'll dance with me? Don't worry, just the tame version, not Alodie's."

"I'd love to! I adore that dance. It's so sweet! Even the other version, in a way."

Kain's shoulders straightened in surprise and he turned to glare at Alys. "And where the hells have you been all night? I've looked for you twice since the dancing began. You'd have suited better if you'd deign to be seen in my presence once or twice."

"Show me, my prince?" Wide-eyed, innocent confusion met his look and she tilted her head with her lips parted just a bit. "If you wish, of course. I could never dream of refusing you your wishes. Are you intending to show me here, in front of your admirers?"

His glare could have melted ice... But Alys was stone. She didn't glare back, but she didn't shrink away either. "If my lord husband must know, I needed to relieve myself... And thus relieved, I returned as quickly as possible. I apologize for not being where you wished me to be."

"Well... I suppose I could show everybody right here," he said. "I suppose that would clear up any lingering questions about the two of us. Though... I'm not certain how the king would feel about me undressing you for all to see."

"Impressive bladder, wife, for it to take two hours to empty." He reached out to take her hand whether she wanted him to or not, looking down to inspect it for tremors or some sign of her having downed snow or some other substance.

She couldn't quite disguise the flare of heat in her eyes, nor the slight color that rose to her cheeks but she leaned in closer to him and lowered her voice: "And how would you feel about doing it? I doubt your brother's subjects are sober enough to avert their gazes."

"Two hours?" She found it hard to believe he'd been looking for her for that long. And here she thought he'd been exaggerating about the dancing bit. "I assure you, my lord. I was here when I was not there... Though outside for a good deal of it... I felt... crowded in here." She looked down when he did and then back up, her own eyes filling with some suspicion. Very quietly she said, "In the future, lord husband, spare yourself the trouble and set a chaperone on me so that you can have an accurate accounting of how long I take to piss and where I'm standing at any given moment. Would that assure you that I'm not laying on my back, heels to Thorin, screaming a name that's not yours? I wasn't, by the way..."

Kain's eyes narrowed but his lips turned in a smile that was cold as winter and his hand tightened on hers. "It's more what you were drinking but thank you for assuring me of your loyalty. One dance, my dear, and then we can discuss your need for companionship." He set the cup down and clenched his hand on his wife's. "I do wish you would just once remember that your enemy is within yourself, Alys. I am doing my best to help you, and look how act."

When a Vellfyre smiled at you like that, you were supposed to cower. It was never a good sign. She lifted her chin and gave her own smile. "Water... And some sort of cider... that wasn't laced with snow." Her fingers closed around his own in response. "I remember well where my enemies are, husband mine... But we can discuss that when there's less of a potential audience... Despite your lack of trust in me, I do not wish to make a scene."

"It would be met with mixed emotions, in truth," he said, his lips moving closer to her ear. "I think in the moment, I would love nothing more than undressing you, laying you over a table, and making you writhe... But then after I see the longing in the eyes of the men who would see just how enchanting you are when you're so taken... I think the jealousy would consume me. Still... if you're willing to risk it?" His hand moved up her back to playfully pull at the top of her laces.

She caught her cousin's eye and noticed her beckoning. "If you will excuse me, my lord...my cousin the princess needs me." Salindra curtsied, and made her way through the crowd toward her cousin. "Highness..." she curtsied. "My lords and ladies..." she nodded in turn to them, and smiled. "I trust no one is getting into too much mischief?"

"I'll trust you when you go a month without it," Kain breathed as he led her toward the dancing but now instead of joining one of the sets he kept walking, leading her straight toward the door he'd so recently seen Jacen and Amina disappearing through. "We can dance after we speak in private. I find my arm is suddenly aching." It wasn't in a sling but wrapped and splinted beneath his sleeves. "You can help me set the sling on. In our chamber." He shot a warning look at her. "Why do you keep pushing me?"

Carolei's back arched sharply and she laughed in shock, jerking forward a bit as if to escape him, but turning as she did so she ended up turning in closer to his chest. Her own hand rose and landed on his chest, just above his heart. She looked up at his face, questions alive in her eyes even through her laughter.

"My prince is quite... poetic this evening. I might think he'd been sipping at Bromios' own cup." She rose onto her toes. "But I couldn't consent to such a display, prince. Not even for you... for some things are only for you. Or... I very much hope you prize them so," she added in a whisper. "We should stop speaking thus. Lady Carolin's ire is burning through my dress faster than your words... I am amazed you do not feel the flames licking across your back even now." Carolei's eyes left his to dart toward the high table and back.

She nodded, but didn't speak for a moment. Not until his question. She glared at him, incredulous and shaking her head slowly. "I am pushing you?" she asked softly, both brows going towards her hairline. "I have done naught but what you ask... And at every turn I am met with distrust and disdain... You did not think you married a meek woman? I am not Amina, my lord... You can't just distract me with a few kind words and gestures and hope me foolish enough to ignore the rest... I react to how you treat me... And if you treat me like a child, how can you expect better of me?"

"Lin!" Parissa reached out to embrace her cousin. "Aegor, everyone, my cousin Lady Salindra of Ashmark. The king's own mistress, as you've heard... Lin, don't worry, we're being quite well behaved. Want some more wine? There's cider someone snuck in from the winter stores too but it's frightfully strong. I almost fell over when I sipped some earlier."

"We were discussing dancing, Lady Salindra." Aegor bowed and smiled.

"Oh, yes. This lovely one Alodie's dancing master made for us a couple years ago... you'll die when you see it... and Aegor's promised to introduce us to some new Carollins. He swears they're more fun than Titus. Sorry, Aegor, I know he's your master."

"Masters aren't meant to be fun, Pari--princess." Aegor laughed again. "But maybe Lady Salindra's already met Lord Guillermo and Lady Graciela?"

His hand came up to cover hers, holding it over his heart, his smile almost boyish in his enthusiasm. "I will quiet my tongue for now, then... But tonight, I promise I will put it to better use... Away from hateful eyes. Gods, I'm going to ache all night until I can have you."

"You act like a child, Alys. Hells, that's all you do: sulk and act out by turns, and then hang your head and promise to do better." He kept his voice quiet but he didn't stop his movement toward the door either. "I trusted you tonight but every time I looked for you: nowhere in evidence. This was the first time to be my wife in public, and I see exactly how much effort you put into that." Kain frowned as he looked at her this time. "Amina would understand why I'm pissed off right now. I don't think you do. So careful who you term foolish, my dear."

"Well we've that much in common, then..." she scoffed. "Trusted me? Yes... Trusted me as far as looking for me twice extends... I was on the terrace... and beyond that... I... did take some time relieving myself... For good reason... Which I had not felt inclined to discuss... and still don't, for that matter. But you would have given me no thanks had I not seen to that..." She scowled then and tried to yank her hand away.

"You'll get no such promises from me in the future... Nor will I hang my head... You want a bauble for a wife... A woman who'll fawn over you... I can be that. I can be whatever you wish for me to be, my lord... I'll stay away from the poppies and keep my bed cold. I'll do what you say and be kind to your fool mistress. And she is a fool... She's a fool and that's exactly why you like her..."
