[OOM] Eiattu - Royal Apartments

Plourr is sitting curled up in the windowseat, covered in file folders and disorganized sheets of flimsi. The rain patters down the outside of the window next to her shoulder, but her attention -- and the muttered, ugly Huttese cursing -- is on the folders.

She is going to finish this soon.

Maybe if she repeats it enough, she'll start to believe it.

Rial was possibly hoping that Plourr wouldn't be home. Mostly because the lovely red mark on his forehead from where Ramon prodded him with the gun is threatening to bruise, and that's the last thing he wants her to see.

On the other hand, they do need to talk. So he sidles into the main room, leaning on the wall and watching her silently.

He has no idea how he's going to ask if she ever wanted to sleep with a short, annoying man with a strange accent and a tendency for pissing people off.
eiattu_pride: (hmmm)

"Funny you should ask." The grin isn't really strong, and it fades fairly quickly as Rial crouches to pick up the folder and crosses the room.

"Plourr, do you know a man called Ramon...Ramon something? From Milliways?"

"Yeah, well." Rial gestures vaguely with one hand, the knuckles split and bruised.

"We had a bit of a run-in togther. He said that you...well...he said that you had showed interest in making love to him."
eiattu_pride: (i will fuck your shit up)

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 02:15 am (UTC)(link)
"It was a little more earthy, yes."

Rial hesitates, chewing nervously on his bottom lip. On one hand, he wants to tell the truth - that the man didn't seem to be lying, that Plourr had come to the bar before him and maybe he'd wondered, a bit, if she'd ever had partners. On the other hand, he wants to say no, not at all, and kiss her and help her with the treasury reports and the defense minister's memos and let everything be okay.

In the end, he goes half and half.

"I did, to a certain degree. And then I did as a good consort does and defended my lady's honour."
eiattu_pride: (grin)

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 02:26 am (UTC)(link)
"Defended my lady's honour."

Beat.

"Asked him outside and then punched him. I'm sure it would've been much longer and more dramatic if he hadn't pulled a weapon on me, but still."
eiattu_pride: (okay. bored now.)

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
Whoops.

"It's okay, Plourr. Someone else broke us up. And I got one decent punch in, so he'll be walking around with a black eye for a while."
eiattu_pride: (analyze and adapt (don't look back))

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
No. No, everything's not, and maybe Rial is only just now seeing this. He takes a step back, out of Plourr's space, anger already starting to cloud his face as well.

"I believed a man who seemed to be telling the truth for a split-second. And then I invited him outside so that I could show him exactly what I thought of his idea of you." He takes a breath, calm, controlled, masking sharp annoyance. "I wasn't expecting a weapon. I wasn't expecting him to react the way he did. But nothing happened. So."

Plourr really must be rubbing off on him. Or maybe he's cranky, because as he turns away he mumbles "Not like I generally have a problem controlling my temper."
eiattu_pride: (hurt)

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 03:43 am (UTC)(link)
"He just said that you'd met and you'd been interested in him. Plourr, for all I knew, it could've happened when we'd fought or - before." Before us is what he wants to say, but that'd be far too cheesy and he doesn't think she would appreciate it.

"I didn't know what to think."
eiattu_pride: (quiet sigh)

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 03:59 am (UTC)(link)
He doesn't let her.

(this is all wrong. Rial is the one who leaves, Plourr is the one who stays and fights and she's not supposed to look like that, fragile and distressed and she's supposed to be the strong one, the one who throws the punches.

He's not supposed to be the bad guy here)

Rial reaches out and catches her upper arm, firmly, turning her until he can look in the eyes. The words don't come easily, at first - in fact, they never do.

He hesitates, tongue-tied, for a second. "Plourr, I don't-" know what to say or what to do I love you I trust you I would never I'm sorry, "I wouldn't-"
eiattu_pride: (hurt)

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 04:09 am (UTC)(link)
"I hit him because he dared to suggest that you would cheat on me."

Among other things, but it's as best as he can explain himself.
eiattu_pride: (analyze and adapt (don't look back))

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
Rial can't believe she's saying it either. Can't believe that he would believe it, but when it came to that...when it came to that, he believed Ramon. For a moment, just a moment.

He hates that.

"I hate it too," he says, reaching out as if to touch her face. "I'm sorry, I wish - I wish we weren't fighting so much. I wish things were better."
eiattu_pride: (sort of worried)

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 04:36 am (UTC)(link)
"I don't know either," he says, bringing his hand back and running it through his hair. "We need to talk, you're right. Whatever's been bothering you. Whatever's been bothering me. Everything."

They just need communication, is all.
eiattu_pride: (smiling)

[personal profile] eiattu_pride 2007-07-19 04:50 am (UTC)(link)
There's maybe a smile, there, and Rial sits as well, brushing sheets of flimsi off his knees.

"Care to go first?"
