"You think he's dead?" I ask hesitantly. "Marnin, I mean?"

I frown as I look up at him, shrugging lightly. 

"I don't know." I confess, "I don't know anything about him or his ex or... What I saw unnerved me, but I don't think he's dead... Though that may be more hope than logical thought."

I nod faintly, my gaze grazing over her for a moment before I look down at the table we'd been sitting at with a frown.

"If half of what I've heard about his ex or whatever he is, I almost hope for his sake that he is," I admit a bit guiltily.

"Nonsense," I shake my head lightly, looking down at my tea. "I haven't known you lot long, but he seems like a tough fellow. I think he's just fine, wherever he is."

"True," I laugh lightly as I sink into my chair and sigh as I bring my drink to my lips. "You should have seen the camp of guys that stole Ljuba's guitar. I swear... I don't think I've ever even hit anyone - all my exercise is for the fairer sex. But Marn, man... he scares me a little bit, I'll be honest."

"He looks like a brick wall under all those shirts and jackets," I nod softly, glancing up at him. "I wake easy, saw him moving about in the van the other night. Changed while he figured everyone was asleep, I guess. 

"So... Are we really going there, though? I know she thinks we are, but we can't really..? I mean, I know I can't, but you and Cael...?"

"I don't know what the hell I'm doing, honestly," I sigh as I run my hand through my hair tiredly. "Not sure why I'm even here.

"Why can't you go?" I ask after a moment.

"This is the Capitol," I shrug, gesturing around us, "This is my stop. Whole point of my trip was to get here, and I'm here

"And aren't you looking after Ljuba..?"

"She hardly needs me when she has an Echo and Marnin," I scoff. "What am I to do if something bad happens? Flirt with our attackers? My skillset isn't exactly the stuff of legend."

"She's going to want someone she trusts when she gets back, though," I frown, "And Cael does not fit into that role anymore."

"I'm not leaving now," I frown, shifting uncomfortably in my chair as I rest my elbows on the table to mess with the cards. "Just... I don't know. I'm not cut out for this shit, Teag... my whole world has been spinning since I set out with these two. This revenge shit is just... toxic. I felt like I was in an okay place with Maja's death. And now I'm off hunting her killer?? The hell is that about?!"

"Maja was her sister?" I ask softly, leaning up to rest against the table as I watch him.

"Yeah," I sigh as I pick at the cards absently. "My fiance... mother to my child... Lju didn't know that last bit, though. We wanted to surprise everyone."

"Oh," I frown sharply, sitting back as my hands fall into my lap and my shoulders sag. "I'm so sorry for your loss."

I snort at her reaction as I glance up at her and smile slightly. "Thanks, but that-," I nod, waving my hand at her politeness. "That's not necessary. I've done my grieving, found my coping mechanisms... I've let go, you know? It was a long time ago... I just wish Lju could move on, too."

I nod vaguely before shifting to get more comfortable, grabbing my tea to take another drink.

"She's odd." I say after a moment. "Not like I'm odd, but odd. I assume she wasn't like that before..?"

"Lju?" I laugh, shaking my head as I give her a look. "No. Well... yeah, but not like this. Lju was... I don't know, she had some issues... sometimes - and dear god please don't ever tell her I said this - I'm sort of happy she isn't like that anymore."

My eyebrows pinch at the peculiar admission, garnering my curiosity as I look at him.

"What do you mean?" I ask with a faint laugh, a laugh that almost feels wrong given the tension that still lingers in the room.

"I don't know," I frown, shaking my head guiltily. "Just ignore me. I mean, she was just a kid back then. We all do stupid, crazy shit when we're young, right? Feel things too intensely, do anything to satisfy our own needs and wants."

I only nod as I glance towards the door impatiently, silently wondering where they are as I take the last drink of my tea. 

"Ah," I say, "I don't know if that's something I can relate to, I've always been on the other end of the spectrum, but I've known others like that, I guess. She seems a lot different now... Or did, when she was still sort of herself."

"Yeah, she's real quiet now," I sigh. "And doesn't seem to like being touched... like she let me hug her and everything, but I feel like there was some tension there, you know? That's nothing like how she used to be. I couldn't keep her off of me before, even when Maja was sitting at the bloody dinner table with us, she'd have her hand up my shorts in a heartbeat if I didn't keep an eye on her."

"Really?" My attention is drawn back to Jean as my face seems to twist in surprise, "Weren't you engaged to her sister..?"

28 Re: Trigger Happy Jack II.V on Tue Apr 12, 2016 11:20 pm

"Yes," I frown, shifting uncomfortably. "She was all over me all the time. She only got more aggressive when we got engaged or when I said no... I hate that I can't say I had a firmer resolve when it came to... well, everything Ljuba."

I frown as I watch him, rising from my seat to bring my mug to the sink as I rinse it out.

"So she was, what? In love with you?" I ask absently, glancing back at him over my shoulder, "That's really odd... I'm sorry, it's none of my business, really. I've just always been sort of curious about other people. 

"You all seem so interesting compared to me." I laugh weakly, setting my mug off as I twist to rest back against the counter. "Growing up, I was surrounded by echoes and even a Prime once or twice! All walks of life, traipsing through my house while my dad fixed them up. They'd all have these interesting stories, and all I ever did was sit in that house and study my dad's texts. "

"Frankly, that sounds more interesting than my fucked up sexual relations," I laugh lightly as I use the corner of one of the cards to pick at the dirt under my nails. "I don't even think she was in love with me, honestly. I think she was just... I don't know - obsessed with the attention her body could get her. She loved to flirt."
