The girl blinked at her.  Her gaze flicked from where Venos still lay asleep, to the concerned look on Kardin's face, and back to Aradhel.  "...okay.  Talk."

"Because we need to have an actual conversation and I don't want people staring," she said all in one breath.

Cla'nee glanced down at where Venos lay, then nodded.  "Outside?  Or...um...I know where the storage tent is.  We can go there.  It's quiet."  Her face darkened a bit.  "And Horace won't get all upset that I talked to someone."

 

 

OOC:  Unspoken reason:  "And there's BALLOONS."

Cla'nee pulled the flap of the dimly-lit tent aside.  "Here," she said simply.  "We probably shouldn't touch anything, but we can sit on the crates."  She did as she said, pulling the bathrobe she wore a bit tighter around herself and eyeing Aradhel coldly.  "What did you want to talk about?  If you're trying to convince me not to go to the prisons, you're out of luck."

"No, I think it's important you go to the prisons." Aradhel paced back and forth, hands shoved deep into her pockets. There was a ringing in her ears. "Look. I-if we're doing this you need to trust me. You don't."

"Of course I don't!  E-Everything you've done - "  She broke off and shook her head.  "Dammit, Aradhel.  Before we talk, p-put all your knives down.  Because I'm not ending up with more wounds because you don't like what I say."

Cla'nee pointed at the fluffy pink bathrobe.  "I don't have any.  Where would I keep them on this thing?"  She held her arms over her head to show she wasn't wearing her wrist blade.  "They're all back with my real clothes."

 

 

OOC:  I can't remember why she's wearing that...other than personal amusement.  Must look it up.  :rofl:

"Stupid of you," Aradhel muttered, methodically removing her knives and laying them in a precise row on a crate.

"Well, I trust everyone else around me," Cla'nee snapped.  "And I can still break your nose without them."

"And I can still snap your neck without these, if I wanted to." She leaned on the crate and closed her eyes a moment. "You have this stupid idea that I'm out to get your little 'family.' It needs to stop."

 

 

OOC: I have only the vaguest idea of where this is going, but I know it's not going anywhere good. :D

OOC:  Yay!

 

 

 

"Gosh, I don't know why I'd think that.  Are there any of us you haven't threatened or drawn blood on yet?  I'm not stupid, Aradhel.  I know that you're loyal to the Brotherhood above everything else.  If they told you to turn us in, you'd lead Moriva right to our door - or bring our heads to him."

"Really?  Why not?  Are you going to kill Vanni's children instead?"

Cla'nee stood, fists clenched at her side.  "If you lay one finger on them, or if I hear that you've even been seen in Anvil, I'll get you re-assigned to Black Marsh!"

"Good for you," she said in a flat voice. "Look. I'm going to the prisons to -" she twitched " - keep an eye on you, and that's not going to work if you think I'm about to stab one of your little friends in the back!"

"Just go back to Bruma.  You're the least connected to all this.  No one knows your name or face or anything.  Why do you have to come along and risk yourself, anyway?"

"I'm not going to get myself killed!" Cla'nee yelled back.  "Do you really have so little faith in my abilities?!"

"Then spar me!  I'll prove to you I can handle myself!"
