Whoops again
« on: March 16, 2019, 08:19:27 PM »

Peigin wasn’t sure if it was the noise or the smell. It could have been the people. She was sure it was the intention. It crept like eyes along her skin, or would have if Peigin had dared expose any. She huddled deep in her coat while others stripped gratefully from theirs and sprawled on on seating designed for more than one person in mind. She managed to pull her fur trimmed hood from her head and remove her gloves but Peigin didn’t get far beyond that point.

Too much noise. And the stink of sex in the air. They might not have been able to smell it, but she could. It was thick. A rich smell that make her stomach queasy and her nerves rattle. Here was a place full of people. People bedding people. And Peigin was too much a wolf to go through with it. It didn’t matter how many threats Peregrine made or how many marks he stuck on the pocket of the coat they had picked for her - thicker than anything she’d ever worn before.

She just couldn’t. So she ran away. Right back out the door she’d only come in moments before. Enough time to take off her gloves and hood. To feel the eyes and intention and flee from it. Out on the street she tried to put her clothing back to rights. Holding a glove in one hand, she half dragged the other one while also trying to lift her hood back over her hair. Which had gone wild in the wind. Stinging her eyes much like the cold stung her cheeks.

Peigin was too busy fighting her garments and her feet to look where her feet took her. Body stumbling up against something hard and fleshy. She grunted and looked up. Eyes wide and half hidden by empty glove fingers which flopped limply in her face. ”Sorry,” she whispered, dying a little inside.

A simple shopping expedition, nothing more and nothing less. That was his intention, a gift perhaps for his mother. Maybe some sweets or a pretty little bauble. Something that would make her squeal like a young lass again. Gunnar loved making his mother happy and that squeal was one that ensured it was true.

Golden eyes narrowed against the wind and the cold. Gunnar knew the winter would be horrid this year. Mind already formulating plans and allotments for the people. He'd discuss the issue with Solveig later, make sure she knew she would have his backing should anything happen. Not that anything would happen. Nothing would. Just a regular old Glacian winter.

Minding his own business when she hurtled into him. Stumbling back a step, Darkness but she hit him hard, Gunnar's eyes widened just slightly. Scent familiar. Was that shirt one he knew? Had it been on the floor of his room at some point? But no. It had never been in such an intimate place. It was familiar, though. Golden eyes looked down into a face flapped by a glove and he thought.

She was not strikingly beautiful, not in the way that Solveig was, and neither of his brothers would ever think her such but the upturned nose and flash of freckles across her face drew his attention. "No harm done now," he drawled at her whispered apology. It was odd, the feeling of knowing and not knowing. He knew her from somewhere but could not place her anywhere. The shirt, the cloak ones he'd seen before, he knew he had but where?

"Do I know you?" he questioned head cocked and brow quizzical.

Him! Peigin nearly screamed, body rocking away from him. Thighs and elbows bumping against him as she tried not to fall backwards, but to still get away as fast as she could. ”Youuu....” The word a croak in her throat. Why was he looking at her? All wide eyed and innocent. He was a thief! Or an attempted thief.

And a warlord prince. Scent of the caste strong on his person, which she’d been much too close to. She could pick it out easily now after living in a house with one. Healer and warlord were easier now too. Castes placed quickly. Jewels were harder, and Peigin didn’t dare risk a probe. He might think it was interest rather than terror.

”No.” He didn’t know her, and she didn’t know him. Her wolf did, but no one could ever know about her. Peigin couldn’t tell her people from not, it didn’t matter what shape they were in. Blood, wolf, au corinthe. There was no way to know without running the risk of exposure. And exposure meant death. The purging sort, that started with Peigin and ended with anyone she had contact with.

”No. No. Not me.” She slid her fingers into her gloves finally, feet crushing the snow as she backed away from him. Slowly. Carefully. Pulling her hood back up over her head, wiping her hair away from her face with the back of a gloved hand. Yellow eyes meant nothing. Kite’s were almost gold because he had an Eyrien father. It happened sometimes, apparently. He could have been much the same.

Why was he staring?! Peigin wanted to scream. Instead she started side stepping down the street, a choking laugh gurgling in her throat. ”Someone else.” She babbled, forcing a smile, eyes sliding away from his face. He was very big. ”I have to go now.” The baby was waiting. Peigin hunched her shoulders. Peregrine would be with her. And he’d know. It made her hesitate. No good options. Two terrifying outcomes to choose from was no good at all.

Head cocked and yellow eyes curious at her stuttered word. She had said, "you" like she knew him. Did he know her? He must. He had to. Even if he didn't know her he wanted to. There was a pull there, something that tugged at him to know her. Fingers itched to take her hair down and see what she looked like with it billowing around her face. What the hell was wrong with him? He didn't even know her.

"You're certain?" he asked again, "I feel like I do." No caste to scent, nothing to tell him what she was. Simply jewels that were not as dark or deep as his. Gentle, soft probes and her fear slapped him in the face. What did she have to fear from him? They didn't know each other by her own admission but still. He couldn't shake the feeling that he knew those clothes, knew her scent and feel. But it was impossible. Thighs touching his as she sought to escape.

Yellow, yellow those eyes were yellow and his own narrowed with suspicion as she backed away from him. He couldn't stop the staring, couldn't stop his mind from running it all through piece by piece. "I don't think so," he said as he started following her down the side walk. He had to look like a weirdo, stranger harassing a frightened girl, but who was going to step in front of Reric's steward when it was obvious he was on a mission?

His legs were longer, his reach just as and Gunnar's hand closed around her slender arm to stop her. "I know you," he declared with certainty, "I know you from somewhere. Not someone else. You. Don't lie now, I'll know. Just tell the truth. How do I know you?" He gave her a little shake to emphasis his point. He did. He did know her. Too many witnesses and not enough time to bring out the wolf to know for certain if her scent was one he knew, but her psychic feel was so familiar and at the edges of his mind.

"Who are you?" he demanded.

”Uh.” Peigin swallowed. Throat dry and lips chapped. She licked them, and coughed up the other half of her denial. ”Huh.” The lying made her sweat. Especially at this distance, which was not enough between them. So close she could see the variations in the color of his eyes. Or where his cheek had been nicked by the razor blade. ”You don’t.” He couldn’t!

Giving a little shiver, Pug backed away. Bodies brushing and his eyes narrowing. Of course they didn’t know each other. She’d been a wolf and he was just a man. A man who was following her. Pace setting him just behind her shoulder. Peigin sank deeper into her jacket and tried not to panic. Or cry. Or run. Hurrying, she tried to out walk him. The only place she had to go was home.

And home was only peaceful when it was just her and Birdy. Or at least when Peregrine was away. The rest were mostly okay and left her in peace. Unlike this warlord prince who caught her by the arm and gave her a tug that jerked her to a stop. Peigin moaned and went limp in his hand. Practically sinking into the ground.

”Nooo.” Shoulders around her ears she hid in the hood of her jacket. She sniffled, when he shook her, tears welling up and spilling down her cheeks. Pug shook her head. He didn’t! She wasn’t! It was terrifying! She pried at his fingers and tried to twist away. ”Peigin! My name. Please let go.” Whisper almost a shout, she rumbled the words at him while swiping tears from her cheeks. The cold made them sting something fierce.
