my heart has had enough of the give and take
even though it hurts

There were rumors of kittens rippling through the eyrie. Ili’s Steward had found them and the last Itzelian had heard they were still in the infirmary. A safe enough place for them all things considered and Itzy had hesitated on going to see them herself. Partly because she hadn’t wanted to crowd Cyprian further and partly because she hadn’t wanted to risk running into Morn or Ili’s latest acquisition. Both terrifying possibilities alone, even more so together.

They’d bickered or something like it from what the hearth witches were whispering. Bickered and then Eremiar had flung Morn out the window. He had wings, of course he’d live but Itzy had inched closer and interrupted the gossiping lot, just to be certain he hadn’t broken his neck on the way down. It was an instinctive worry she kept telling herself, absolutely nothing to do with her being pulled to him.

Nothing more than wounded pride, the Hearth witches had said before moving on. Wounded pride was nearly as dangerous as physical injuries when it came to males in her experience. They certainly snapped and snarled the same.

Still, she knew, avoiding any of the court’s males by hiding in her room also meant not getting a chance to see the kittens. And the need for something to fussy at that couldn’t chastise her for not doing it right was strong. At least if she couldn’t have one she could get a moment to play with them before new owners whisked them away.

Yes, she could manage slipping away to the infirmary without bolting at the first sight of any of Ili’s males. They would all be away, raiding the kitchens or beating each other with sticks in the practice yard. Or being thrown out of windows by Ili’s red menace. Anywhere but the same hallways if she was lucky. No one to notice her practically bouncing with excitement at the very least.

“I wonder if the kittens have names yet?” Itzelian mused aloud before shaking her head, “No, probably not. Not until someone takes them I suppose.” She could risk thinking out loud, she had to or her excitement would have set her to skipping. And skipping down the hall was a sure way to run into someone unawares.

"Interested in kitten, Itzelian?" Morn asked, lounging against the wall like a lazy mountain cat stretched across a ledge. He'd been going down the side hall when he'd smelled her. Heard her too, muttering to herself about the damn kittens everyone was talking about. Useless, mewling things who required too much milk and attention.

"They like petting, you know," he taunted her. He had not quite forgiven her for their last encounter. Or any of their other encounters that hadn't ended in his bed. Or the next nearest. And his damn cloak still smelled like her. He snaked an arm out to catch at the skipping queen. He had taken a moment to drink in the sight of her bounding down the hallway so boldly.

Such energetic movement always did very nice things to women.

"Want an escort? Never know where that menace might be lurking." Morn smirked, a cruel edge on the corners of his smile. His spine was still stiff with wounded pride at being tossed out a window like a piece of trash. He'd caught himself before too much damage had been done, frustrated that he hadn't even noticed the attack coming. "I hear he's taken a liking to the kittens too." Or his queen had.

Some thing. Fucking monster.

So much for her good mood and any hope of seeing the kittens today. Why did Morn have to keep plaguing her? She’d done the decent thing of avoiding him after the last time. Why couldn’t he do the same? The taunting registered and Itzelian swallowed down a lump of fear. No running this time. She’d spent enough time working up the nerve to come out here in the first place. “You sound a bit jealous.” Jaw set, Itzy dared enough to meet his eyes, not shying away from his attempts to get at her. The offer of an escort had caught her once, not again. Thrice damned male, no wonder Eremiar had thrown him out the window.

“How did you enjoy flying, Mornivar?” She asked sweetly, trying her hardest not to bolt right back down the hallway. She belonged here as much as he did. Even if common sense said run and a more stubborn part of her urged her to continue verbally poking the warlord. “Oh yes, a kitten or two for his Queen. He knows how to be kind without expecting anything in return.” Not that Itzy had any intention of finding out if that kindness extended to anyone besides Ery. Let her and Ili keep their dark jeweled menaces.

She belonged here and he could keep limping around like a wounded puppy. He had scared her badly enough the last time and she was tired of running.

"Jealous? Over kittens?" Morn scoffed. The sorts of pets kittens got were not enough to settle him. Or rile him, if that was what he was after. And that was what Morn was always after. She was feisty today, though, Itzelian was. She was always full of hisses, but today she seemed bolder than most.

Maybe a little too bold.

"I always enjoy flying." He would get his revenge on that damned warlord prince. He scoffed. "You think he knows what kindness is? I hear he keep lady Erylian locked up in his room and never lets her out. Who knows what he does to her in there." Mornivar knew what he would to do any queen he got sequestered in his room. But she would enjoy it from him. He had his doubts about that other one.

"Why don't you come here, Itzelian, let me walk you down to the kitties, since you're so interested?" Brat. He offered his hand, wiggling fingers at her. Might as well smell the real thing, instead of ghosts left on his cloak. "I never did get to finish escorting you to breakfast the other day." Insulting brat. He still wanted at her though. Sure if he played his cards just right, he could get her into his rooms, and his bed. Or hers. Both were the same.

Maybe this time she'd keep the insults to herself. Or, more of the insults. Brat.
