"He owed Mairon a debt, and didn't have any coin, so," I shrug, "He gave him me."

"Gave?" I ask, Mairon's warning forgotten as I stare at a Winifred in shock. It doesn't take much more than that for the man in question to appear in the kitchen after that.

"I said change the subject," he snaps at me in annoyance. I'm not sure what he expects as a response, but my ears flush an ugly red as I scowl at him darkly.

"I don't care what you said," I whip back, my sharpness tripping him up with it's unexpectedness. "This is my house, not yours. And I don't take orders from slavers. If your ownership of another person isn't something you want discussed, then maybe you shouldn't own someone to begin with."

Much of the exchange is lost to me, but it doesn't take much more than the aggressive puff in Mairon's shoulders to send me scurrying off of the counter and between the two men. With Aodh at my back, I plant my hands against Mairon's front and push him back, a whine sitting in my chest. Tension stretches through my own limbs as Mairon threatens to continue through me, his hands coming up to catch my arms before I can catch one to press to my chest. My heart is pounding as I squeeze his fingers.

"You're fortunate Winifred is here," Mairon growls past the woman, his posture softening only just when she pulls his arm to her chest clingingly.

"I am fortunate!" I shoot back, my adrenaline pumping wildly as I barely manage to keep my tongue from tripping over itself. "I'm fortunate to have gotten away from a life of servitude! I only wish she could say the same!"

"Shut your mouth, you little shit!" Mairon snarls as he pushes against Winifred again, the whine in her throat intensifying. "You have no idea what you're even talking about!"

Anxious tears well in my eyes as I shove at Mairon weakly, my hands shaking as I fail to understand what he's said.

"Please, stop!" I say sharply, inhaling raggedly through the building panic. Not here. Not now. I bear my shoulder into his chest as I turn to Aodhagan, searching his angry features pleadingly as I "Please don't do this."

I look between Winifred and Mairon with a disapproving scowl set into my features. Finally, I just shake my head roughly and grab an empty basket off of the counter. Cutting Mairon another glare, I let out a sharp breath before nodding toward Winifred indulgently.

"I need some air," I say a bit abruptly. "If there are any herbs you prefer for your dinner, you're welcome to come find them with me."

I frown as Aodh heads out through the back, the door shutting sharply as I turn to look at Mairon tiredly.

"What was that about?" I ask harshly, pushing at him roughly.

"You're mad at me?!" I ask in surprise, my face still pulled tight in a scowl as my head remains cocked toward the door; I can hear Aodh talking to the chickens in the garden. "I just told him that discussing private matters such as laborer trade arrangements isn't appropriate subject matter for strangers to discuss! He's the one who got all bent out of shape, and pressed the subject after I asked him to change the subject! It's not my fault he's obviously foreign and doesn't know how we do things around here!"

"That doesn't mean you have to bow up to him!" I whine in response, my voice shaking anxiously. "He just doesn't understand! "

"I'm not going to ignore it when someone makes rude, ignorant accusations toward me when they know nothing about me!" I say angrily as I cross my arms and try to turn away from her stubbornly. "You don't get to be morally superior when you associate with a damn criminal and then come begging the victim of that criminal's bullshit to save them! If I were that big of an asshole, I would have told him just where him and his friend could go!"

"He's young and scared and tensions are high!" I argue weakly, Mairon's anger bordering on overwhelming.

"It's nothing to fight over. So he doesn't agree with how I came to you? I don't care about that, why do you?"

"Because!" I shout abruptly. "I'm not like Iwan! I'm not like any of those people! I work so hard to be good, and to do good in the world. And I get reduced to a slaver because I needed help?! That's not fair!"

I startle at the way he seems to jump as he speaks, my chest aching as I struggle to keep up with what he's saying. It's something I don't know how to help, something I don't know that I can. Reaching out, I catch his hand softly, my fingers entwining in his as I squeeze.

"You're good," I say, focusing particularly on keeping my voice even and soft, "and I would have told him that if you would let me. You didn't keep me locked in, I chose to stay. You're good."

I exhale roughly at her words, the tension leaving my body as I squeeze her hand and pull it to my lips. I hate when I get worked up, especially when it causes Winifred to jump so nervously at my movements. With the tension melting from my posture, she seems to relax a little and allows me to pull her into a tight embrace.

"Thank you," I sign into her hand as I bury my face in her hair, offering a soft kiss to her neck before I pull away with a sigh. "I think I'll get Ljuba started on her flush." I say before hesitating for a moment. "Are you okay?"

As Mairon pulls away, I reach up to rub at my eyes before smiling at him as convincingly as I can muster. Even if he can't see it, there are times when it feels like he just knows

"Yeah," I say unevenly, glancing towards the back door, "I should get Aodh." I reach out to squeeze his hand once more before stepping around him, heading out back.

Sighing, I feel my way through the kitchen after she's gone, her absence allowing me to bump around and navigate the unfamiliar space without feeling self-conscious. After locating the kettle and a clean mug, I boil some water and fill about half of the mug before returning to the sitting area that Ljuba has made into her bedroom.

I don't stir as Marnin returns to the room, instead turning to watch him tiredly. Mug in hand, he looks almost as I remember him. He's grown scruffier, and he's dressed like he belongs in the new world, but the way he walks, the way his head moves with his surroundings, it's still Marnin

"Is this how it was for you..?" I ask weakly, my throat burning and scratching as I clear it painfully. "Or are you just a ghost?"

"What are you prattling about?" I ask as I situate myself in the chair by the bed, the mug held between my knees as I begin mixing a noxious assortment of leaves and roots into it. My tone is patient despite the question, and I carry on humming to myself as I work and listen.

"When you died," I say a bit more firmly, twisting to watch him. "What are you making..? Who taught you that? Is he here!?"

145 Re: The Fuck..? on Thu Sep 07, 2017 3:50 pm

"What are you talking about?" I demand, the patience bleeding out of my voice as a note of concern and annoyance creeps in. "No one is here besides Aodhagan and Winifred. And I am not dead. Unless that's some kind of threat, in which case, I strongly urge you to rethink your choices."

"Aodhagan's here?" A threat of tears hits my voice as I pick my head up, the room spinning a bit as I let it fall back to the pillow. "Why, why is he here..? He's not supposed to be here, it's why I left, it's why you're here... He's not here."

"Does he not live here..?" I ask in confusion, my brow furrowing in puzzlement. "And I'm here because he came and got me." I pause for a moment, my head tilting toward her as she shakes her head silently.

"Who exactly do you think I am?" I ask after a long silence, my voice soft as though avoiding anyone overhearing us.

My expression pinches in pain and confusion as Marnin leans in, my head shaking roughly as I whine. 

"Don't be like that, Marnin," I whimper, coughing as I reach up to wipe at my face, "That's not you, that's him like that, not you."

"Marnin, of course," I sigh as I run a hand through my tangled hair roughly. "Alright, Ljuba," I frown, embracing her frenzied daydream. "How much did you take..? And don't lie to me. I'll know if you do."

"All I did was lie to you," I half laugh painfully, tears welling in my eyes as I look up at the ceiling. 

"I took enough." I respond quietly, " I couldn't do it like you did, I couldn't do needles like you, but you know me and my teas... I took enough."
