Secrets Best Kept

Post  Liv on Thu Aug 04, 2011 8:07 pm

I open my eyes slowly, shaking my head, which feels as if it's been stuffed with cotton wool. I shouldn't drink like that, I tell myself as I muzzily wash my face in the bathroom sink. I always hate the way I feel in the morning.
I set the kettle in the kitchen, and pull together a good hangover remedy from my herb store. This won't taste good, but at least it'll clear my head. I steep my tea, making a face with the first sip. No. Not good at all.
Something moves in the hall, and I glance up. Who's awake this early?

falling down from the bed i am lying i scan my surroundings, i am in a room with purple tapestries along the wall missing a chunk inside me in a house i dont know anything about, paranoia asserts itself as i hear something move outside the door i get up quietly and walk over to the door and stick my head out to check, popping my head out of the door i someone but cant determine who they turn around and a second too late i stick my head back in, looking around in the room for a place to hide i find an old lamp with a lampshade that i put over my head.

I take another gulp of my tea, and flinch at the terrible taste of the dandelion root and the gineseng. Good for me, yes, but not very palatable, especially with the gravelroot that I added against iron poisoning. I glance down at my arm, checking the angry red marks. They're still nasty, but none of them seem to be too deep, and they're healing fairly well.

I flinch, and growl at the noise. For a moment, Ignacy freezes; a deep growl coming from the throat of what appears to be a young woman has that effect on a lot of people, I've noticed. "Keep it bloody down, will you?" I sip my tea, then glance up at the tall bounty hunter. "If I've got a hangover, yours must be twice as bad. How can you stand to make so much racket?"

"Probably because of you." I say dryly, "And considering how much you drank last night, the last thing you need is rum. Wh..." I peer closer, then sigh. "That's blood on your face, isn't it? Hold still." Pulling a kerchief from my pocket, I pour some of my tea into it, then step beside the taller man. Standing on tiptoe, I scrub at his face, but despite the blood, I don't see any wound. "Not bad; must've been a scratch." I say, somewhat surprised. That was a fair amount of blood. Then I meet his eyes. "You don't even have a hangover, do you?"

That makes me crack a smile. "Well, Peter Pan, keep it down for the rest of us, okay? The rest of us have to sleep it off."

I give him a mock glare. "I'll have you know that by Dratsie terms I'm barely an adult. Biologically, you're older than me. So there."

I stick my tongue out at him, and return to my seat, taking another sip of my tea. "Well, there's food in the fridge. Since you're in such rude health you can get your own breakfast."

I laugh, and help him to his feet. "Come on, there's some scones in the kitchen." As Ignacy chews industriously at his food, I pick at mine. "How old are you anyway? Thirty? Forty?" I ask idly, taking another sip of bitter tea.

"Wow. But...you're human, right? I didn't think men could live that long. The only ones you hear of living like that have given up some of their humanity.Did you...make a deal, or get a procedure..." then I realize how prying my question was. "Sorry. None of my business."

"I know the man was mad," I say reflectively, "and that he tried every scam going that even hinted at Power, at magic, at something he could use." I glance up at Ignacy. "Why?"

i examine my scone closely for flaws and say "mad yes but even a broken clock is right twice a day no?", i decide the scone is satisfactory and say "during the invasion of norway we found trolls and it marked the beginning of a project that would have won hitler the war if it hadnt been found so late" i look at the hand that had been pierced by the crabs spiked shell and say "dont you wonder how i managed to well stand up after being used as a ragdoll by that crab?".
