Crackhouse Dream.
[Rosa's in a large courtyard with fences and trees set up. She's…

[Rosa's in a large courtyard with fences and trees set up. She's placed little handkerchiefs pinned to the fences and trees in various places and is practicing her archery skills. She's either really bored or just a little nervous.

An Artemis arrow soars from her new bow, which she has dubbed Medusa, to land squarely where a piece of cloth is attached to a fence post. With a sigh, Rosa pulls out another arrow and begins the process all over again.]

[A small bit of applause, possibly sarcastic-- it's difficult to tell with Axel.]

An archer, huh? With that kinda gear, I'd expect you to be a princess.

[He steps out from behind a tree, folds his arms and leans against it.]
12th-Jan-2008 11:35 pm (UTC)
[Rosa looks around, bow and arrow pointed to the ground as she spots the speaker.]

Well I am a queen as well, but even queens must protect things.

[She turns and shoots the arrow into a tree, not the one Axel is leaning against, but one across the yard.]
13th-Jan-2008 01:59 am (UTC)
What is it with you princessy types and self-sacrifice? You'd all be a lot better off if you just let some meat shield take care of it.
13th-Jan-2008 02:03 am (UTC)
[She turns to face him, an indistinguishable look on her pretty face.]

You're suggesting I would think of leaving Cecil and my friends to fight alone. I wouldn't be left behind. Not that time.

[looses an arrow that's intended for the tree next to Axel. Whether it reaches its mark or not is up to Axel.]
13th-Jan-2008 03:31 am (UTC)
[He arches an eyebrow and merely tilts his head to avoid the arrow. He's faster than he looks but why put forth the effort unless there's a real threat?]

Oh, I can see why... Even good little princesses have their bite.
13th-Jan-2008 03:40 am (UTC)
[Her face scrunches up as she eyes him. Another arrow gets put to her bow and she turns in another direction to shoot it.]

I don't suppose you know anything of fighting.

[The arrow goes twanging into another fence post.]
13th-Jan-2008 04:51 am (UTC)
[cocky smirk.]

I don't suppose you know anything of war.

[Sarcasm? Of COURSE!]
13th-Jan-2008 05:19 am (UTC)
[She turns back to him, glaring as much as Rosa ever can.]

I am sure I know of war than you do.
13th-Jan-2008 07:59 am (UTC)

Is that so? What about politics? Surely a queen must know of that.
13th-Jan-2008 06:26 pm (UTC)
[She visibly twitches.]

And why would someone ask me about politics? Do you have something to say about Baron or Cecil?

[Her hand tightens slightly on the bow.]
14th-Jan-2008 02:09 am (UTC)
[still nonplussed.]

Just passing the time is all. I'll admit I haven't heard of Baron or Cecil. I'm not from your world. [His lip curls.] I was going to ask if you'd seen a blond boy with blue eyes and a bad attitude.
14th-Jan-2008 03:04 am (UTC)
[She doesn't look at him as her fingers tighten further on the bow.]

I am sorry I have not. Is he a friend of yours?
14th-Jan-2008 06:07 pm (UTC)
[There's a subtle twitch of his own fingers. Apprehension? He disguises it by crossing his arms again, perhaps a bit too late.]

Yeah, he... was.

[He gives Rosa a bit of a fang-toothed smile, then a lazy salute.]

Well, I have my answer. Still got some looking to do. Later, queenie. [he backs off the tree and starts to walk away.]
14th-Jan-2008 06:33 pm (UTC)
[She turns to watch him walk away, a really, really confused look on her face.]

If you say so. Good luck finding him. If I see anyone like that, I will let him know you're looking for him...

[Realizes she doesn't know his name.]

Your name would be...?
16th-Jan-2008 12:17 am (UTC)
[He pauses mid-step. At last he glances at Rosa over his shoulder, lifts his other hand to tap his temple.]

Axel. A-X-E-L. Commit it to memory.

[He disappears behind another tree, and despite there being no explanation, he's gone. Damn teleports.]
17th-Jan-2008 11:53 pm (UTC)
[The quiet blonde observes from the shadowed side the fence.]

Nice shot.
18th-Jan-2008 05:14 am (UTC)
[Rosa looks around.]

Thank you... Have you been there long?
18th-Jan-2008 03:51 pm (UTC)
[ Ooh, a white mage. Xelloss is so spying on you from a tree - he's not undetectable, just to most casual observers. ]
18th-Jan-2008 07:18 pm (UTC)
[Rosa feels like she's being watched and looks around nervously, bow still up.]


Who's there?
18th-Jan-2008 09:56 pm (UTC)
Ara, you've caught me.

[ He leaps down and bows at the waist. ]

Xelloss Metallium, Trickster Priest, at your service.

You're a lot sharper than you look, Princess.
20th-Jan-2008 03:32 am (UTC)
[Rosa blinks a little and raises her bow as he jumps down. The arrow lowers slightly, though the hand on the string is still pulled back so that she can aim and let go to shoot if she needs to.]

Thank you...

[Out of a sense of formality, she figures she should give him her name as well.]

Rosa Farrel... Nice to meet you, Xelloss.

[She does not let the bow relax an inch.]

[ Oh, you hero-types are so fun to tease. ^_^ ]
