Theodemar's demeanor fell as he watched Aunt Sophie drag Atticus away, his brows furrowing in thought. He had been trying to avoid messing things up, but it seemed that with that worry, he stumbled over his own feet. He may have just broken his one alliance, with his moronic blurting of information. His eyes slanted over to the giggling glider, and pondered stuffing her in a bag to keep her quiet. But he was not that mean. This was fully on his back, his responsibility to take care of. Picking up the glider from her neck, he placed her in his wrapped hand, leaning over and grabbing his pouch of money from an inner pocket of his breastplate before he walked to the front door and out into the sunshine again, breathing in the air as he hooked the pouch to his belt. He needed to keep his distance for a little while, keep family issues to the family before he could go back and mend his mistake. "Hardly a dent in my record," he growled to the rodent, filling his chest with fresh air before he began his stroll down the streets, staying off to the side of the passing neighbors but noting the buildings and architecture as well as the breeds that mingled among one another. He could learn more about this later, when his ties were knotted back together. For now, he needed to pick himself up by his bootstraps and pound the pavement to make something of his new life while he destroyed others behind him.

She growled, attempting to flee again when Theo made quick work of her efforts and stuffed her into his coin satchel. The metal was very cold on her delicate feet. It caused her to shift her toes on them. She folded her round ears against her skull, peaking out from the bag with her small head. What was the brute up to now? Sulking? Was he going to sulk? -Yes, Of course he was. She made a 'tsk tsk' noise, scenting the cold wind brush against her nose. Claws gripping the leather for balance, the sugar took a look around the village. It seemed it was always bustling. Fawns were still prancing around - including little calves too. "Why bring ME along?" She questioned him. "Not like I'm great company or anything..."

Theodemar huffed a bit at her comment and shoved his hands into his pockets, his thumbs tapping the outer fabric as he scanned the store fronts. "I figured you might prefer the outdoor air to a cabin of tension," he replied cooly down to her, though began to worry about what he was going to do. He had no idea where he was supposed to go, or where he was to buy a new set of clothes. Everything was so jovial that he didn't belong so swell among people who knew each other well. Mustering up some courage and puffing his chest out to seem confident, he approached a passing girl and cleared his throat, putting his arm up across his chest. "My lady," he greeted, "I'm rather new around these parts. May you explain where I can find some clothes, perhaps a plate of food?" He smiled just a bit, hoping he seemed friendly enough. He wasn't exactly like any of these, but he could try to fit in.

She made a clicking sound as a gesture of annoyance. What a dope. He was the type to just run away and pretend like he never did anything. After rolling her eyes, they met with the many faces of the villagers; the young and the old. There was the calling of the market place where the people would trade and talk about their lives. Quite boring and dull actually. This place seemed so pacifistic, it was no wonder they had to hide and pretend they didn't exist. Such spineless little nuisances. "Pathetic little nub tails."
The sugar glider muttered to herself, glaring at the girl Theo had just approached.
She was a gentle thing with strawberry blonde hair and freckles along her cheeks. When she beamed at the guy, the sugar glider pretended to vomit.

"Oh goodness me! You're the guest! The elk! The one everyone's been talking about, sure-sure," she grabbed his hand gingerly and pulled him a bit away from the rest of the crowd. Her fair skin seemed to gleam in the sunlight. "Haha, so sorry for pushing you away from everyone. I didn't want others finding out-that sounds weird-hang on..." She cleared her throat and pointed at a trade stand to the very back. "I'd ask mother Chital about food. She can definitely help you out." Then she tapped on her lip and pointed to a hut just across from it. "And clothes are right over there! I would lie low for a bit. Um...don't want people nipping at you. Figuratively. I mean..." The girl flushed with embarrassment, putting her hair behind her ear as she glanced down. "Ah I'm so bad at this..."

The sugar glider twitched her nose as it crinkled, and glanced up at Theo to talk to him while the girl wasn't listening. "Freaking weird one this is. Just take the food and go please. Or I'm gonna purposefully eat your coins just to die."

Theodemar was quite surprised at being recognized by the younger girl, but he followed her willingly, her hand soft in his own and causing him to clear his throat in surprise. He wouldn't have expected to be noticed so quickly, but he didn't really mind it. She seemed nice enough to direct him where he needed to go. Continuing to smile at her, he pretended to brush her worries aside with his hand. "You're doing just fine, thank you for the direction. I'm mighty impressed at how fast word spreads in this town though. And don't mind, I've had my few nicks here and there. A new nips won't be much." His teeth gleamed through his lips for a moment, his hand placed back in the position prior to her taking it out of habit. His eyes gazed down the street, keeping mental note of the places she pointed out. It would be good to remember for later, though he was sure that if he were able to see what they were surrounded by, he could make his way to them much quicker the next time he was out and about. Perhaps this lady could show him around."Would you mind escorting me from place to place, if you have the time? Get acquainted with the pathways. I'm sure you know more than I do." A small laugh bubbled from his lungs and out to her, his eyes closing just a tad from it. He ignored the sugar glider and eased his hand over the pouch to give a small nudge to her nose, a sign to keep her mouth shut while he tried to focus on his newest company.

The girl was quick to respond to his comment about how 'word travels fast around here'. That was quite the understatement. Everybody knew everybody, and that meant everyone knew everything. She gave him a plucky smile. "Ah I mean if something this exciting were to happen, of course everyone would know! It's really rare, having an outsider around...that is..." she admitted gingerly. But her face went a tad red at his suggestion, feeling honored for him giving her any attention at all. She just wanted to see him, now she was showing him around? How cool! Her smile grew and seemed to glow at the suggestion. "Really? Really-really? I mean I would love to, sure." After brushing some hair back behind her ear again, she was readied up and she began leading him to mother Chital for food; she figured that was most important. Clothes could wait. Only a few steps forward and the sweet aromas of freshly baked pies, bread, and soups fluttered in the air. It even made her belly grumble a little. "I have to ask, was what I heard true? That is...are you REALLY from the castle?" Her eyes sparkled as beads of light swept down from the canopy. "Like with all the predators and-and meat eaters? You are very brave." She muttered. "I couldn't imagine being put through that..."

Theodemar continued to be amused by the embarrassment of the girl, though he tried not to make her feel as though she were in the presence of a god or anything outrageous. He was simply like them, with a different past attached to his name. "Really-really. Why else would I ask?" His face spread a smile that just seemed to stick, his footsteps echoing hers as the smells arose in the air. He didn't even realize how hungry he was until he imagined all the meals he could be eating soon here, and he almost drooled. After years of basic feed, this would be paradise for certain. Though his thoughts mimicked her question, and his gaze wandered to her as they paraded across the street. "Yes, I am," he murmured, starting to understand that he should probably not be so prominent of his origins, at least not yet. He would enjoy one on one time beforehand, but his chest puffed out a little at the possibilities that wandered to mind. Yet he wasn't so sure that he wanted to jump on any. "I was a guard for the predatory Lords, it was rather intriguing to protect such vicious creatures. But I would much rather be surrounded by people of my own kind. Who knew I'd find such pretty ladies just a few days from it all?" The sparkle in her eyes from before was daunting, but he played right at it. He'd never had such attention before.

It was funny to her, how different he was compared to the rest of his kind. Not that she had anything against them. But he seemed to be a bit flirty, with a gentle disposition. And sweet, very sweet. "Pretty? Well," she covered her mouth with her hand as she laughed. The soft skin of her cheeks flushed again but allowed it to fade. "Goodness, well, there are much better girls further into town, believe me." The story of his life was fascinating though. So very different from their own. And she couldn't imagine a life outside this. It made her eyes shimmer in delight. "That's honestly...as bad as it is, really cool. Like real predators? Y'know I've never seen a predator in my life...I haven't really seen anything outside of deer actually..." There was a faint sigh as she look to the dashing man. "Other than...you're little rodent friend that is." She giggled. "What was being in the castle like? I see you have armor...I mean...really nice armor. Pardon me for staring if I've been doing that...I've never seen armor either. Castle armor anyway...um...I'm babbling again, aren't I?"

Theo's head tilted a tad as he gazed at her, some of his honeyed hair catching on the breeze and whisping up to the side as he did so. "Really? Even though you're the one I approached?" His tease caused the edges of his lips to pull into a gentle grin, the good smells that wafted to them causing his stomach to rumble in a warning to him, though he ignored it for the time being as her light rambling amused him so. "Never apologize for such a thing," he told her softly, positioning his head back upright. "For either thing, that is. I understand me being here is a bit overwhelming, with all I bring behind me." Chuckling, he adjusted some of the straps as he was reminded of their rubbing against his clothes. "It was, well, rather boring. The lords were often doing their own business, leaving us to really just sit and stare. Sometimes we would escort a lord into town, but that was a special occasion. Or we would get hints of some scandal in the castle and would try to listen in on meetings, perhaps pick up on maid gossip. But of all the things there, I think I will much more enjoy my time here. Always something, or someone, to see." Winking at her, he propped up one of his arms on his waist casually as their steps walked over stone. "Though speaking of the predators," he lowered his voice, "we have escorted a 'tame' one here, persay. Don't let any know, but, she is on our side. Perhaps I could introduce her to you privately, once she feels better." He wasn't sure if he should have spoken of the information, but it would spread around sooner or later.

The tease furthered her gentle smile, causing her cheeks to warm and her eyes to soften. "Aw, you're so sweet," she said to him. "Say, what's your name? I know that's a rather weird question to ask considering how much I know about you...but...yeah...might be a good time to ask." The girl shrugged her shoulders. Gently chewing on her lip, she listened to the man tell his tale. She was engrossed with his story even if he was listing the bad in the job. She didn't know what life was like there but it seemed different than she'd imagine. The girl figured there would be so much violence on the streets. At least boring was better than carnage after all and she nodded her head. "Oh-oh, I see, I know what you mean but I mean it's really boring here too." Holding onto her wrist as they began to come upon the food shack, she pushed a strand of hair behind her ear. "All we have is our market and snooping in other people's businesses...it's nice though don't get me wrong. It's really nice sometimes." As the man addressed the leopard that was brought into the village, she giggled, and eyed him sweetly. Her words showed her amusement in his wariness. "Well of course, if my cousin brings in a outside woman everybody has to know who she is. Atticus talks to his Aunt about his times at the castle and she...well...is a social butterfly. So most of us don't know names is all but we know the basic story." Seeing people socialize and part ways with the woman in charge of selling the food, she gave a causal look to him. "She'll be fine as long as our head chief accepts her..." Having said that, the girl turned and gave a friendly smile to the lady at the shack.

Theo was surprised that he hadn't told her his name, or anyone really. He would have guessed from all the gossip spreading in the small town that names would have arisen, but alas that didn't seem the case. He smiled down at her, glancing between the two women. "Theodemar," he told her quietly, before huffing with playfulness. "Boring? You guys have twice the enthusiasm that the lords do, and all you may do is walk and talk. I would consider that pretty exciting, in my books." He couldn't understand why they believed they were boring. If they could talk for hours and keep the streets bustling with activity, that was successful in his books. Years of silence quickly built. Chuckling, he nodded to her next, addressing the woman as he didn't want her to wait too long. "Excuse me, if I were to eat anything here, what would you highly recommend?" he asked. "I can only assume that everything here is the same greatness, though."

The comment was cute but she would leave it at that. They were of two different worlds and she hadn't the time to show him everything, knowing he'd figure it out himself. But in the meantime, it was comforting to have someone of such interest beside her. She could feel her cheeks glow at the thought - an outsider. No, she was never the one to get that type of attention. Every popular figure was followed by the more...outspoken crowds while she lingered in the back but today was different. The glimmer of her smile rested on her fair lips as she looked to mother Chital, the shopkeeper. To Theodemar's question, she thought of it. The options rolled around in her head. There was so much to eat and so many different tastes. It was a shot in the dark if he would like it or not. "The Sweetwater bread is a favorite here...if you want a snack," she said. "But I personally recommend the Chickpea Tomato Minestrone. Everything is fresh though and good. Experiment." Personal boundaries were not a thought up idea in the village, the girl held his hand as she lead him to the wide-open stand.
A few stray looks were given to the elk and then a few more. The smell of fresh bread, soups, and the like wafted into the air. Its familiar scent brought the childhood memories bounding back, "we can take up as much time as you need, Theodemar." There was a nice ring to his name as she said it. "I'm Angeline by the way." She introduced, enchanted by him in his shiny apparel.

Theodemar was curious by the girl's suggestions for food, and noted it personally. He would indeed need to experiment, with how amazing the smells were just on their own. It had been - well, never - that he had quality food, as even his family didn't have the greatest cooking in his childhood. "Will do," he told her after a moment, though blushed lightly and stepped after her when she took his hand. In their bubble conversation, he felt a lot more comfortable among the people's stares and passing glasses than if he were on his own. His eyes looked along the stands and tried to find the food he would like the most, before she mentioned her name. Angeline. The name rung happily in his ears, and he grinned just a bit over here. "Angeline. It's a pleasure to know you more. But I don't want to take too much of your time. Can't be staring at food all day." He laughed softly to himself. "Surely there's more for you to show me than just food."

Angeline Gray

She was a little amused by his response about taking her valuable time. It pushed her smile further up her face. What nonsense that was, her time was so meaningless in comparison to his! But what a nice man. He was so kindhearted. "Trust me, this has got to be the most exciting part of my day," she told him with a humble smile. "I mean. I sound strange but, it's nice being around you...I guess. I don't know." Her eyes went away from his with a little flush on her face. And then her attention returned to him as he spoke again. There was an 'oh right' moment she had in the middle of speaking with him. Angeline's eyes went a little wide. "More than food? I mean...oh. Oh...I see, I see." She was a bit thrown off by the notion but assumed she knew what he meant. Angeline was more than happy to oblige but before she was able to respond more, mother Chital interrupted.
"Ah! Newcomer aye! Pleasure to see the both of you's." A female spotted deer stepped up and whisked her tail with a snort. "Y'all let me know when you're ready, I promise the best food you can get your hooves on."

Theodemar’s gaze continued to glance between Angeline and the stands, the food catching his attention with his hunger but the girl just by her company. Other features were out on the table too, but he figured polite to leave them be and simply enjoy the day before him. After all, growing close to one person in this town would make it easier to adjust to the rest of it. Atticus may know most of the deer and elk, but Angeline seemed to know more of the details he craved. His eyes shone down to her as her voice lifted to him again, her words never putting a damper on his view of her. “It’s always alright to be excited by a newcomer. I’m sure I have quite the story compared to the life here, and I’m pleased to share it with you and get to know yours, your impact on this little abode.” He hadn’t even realized that his hand was in hers still, and almost wanted to keep it there. But he figured it would be best to nonchalantly slip it from hers, keeping it close to his side in case she needed to rush him off somewhere else. It amused him to think of her doing it again, and played a smile before a new voice entered the conversation. Turning to see the deer, he bowed his head in a solid yet polite greeting to her. “You must be the famed mother Chital. Angeline here tells me your Chickpea Tomato Milestrone is a treat, so I’d love to give it a go. But hit me with your best shot as well, surprise me with an extra dish.” His smile broadened. “If I’m going to get used to being here, I want to get the full experience in every form.”

((Timeskip into future for Atticus and Aaliyah’s side))

The snow leopard hardly knew where she was for a moment upon awakening, knowing her body had fully embraced the pain of her injuries earlier and leaving her sore from head to toe. She really hit things hard it seemed, and she longed to go outside and stretch her muscles to ease the tension. Speaking of the outdoors, her eyes glazed to the window nearest, and although she could hardly see anything, she could still see a hint of light in the darkness. Benefits of a night huntress, she supposed. Though she was realizing she was starving, and frowned to herself as she sat up to wake up more. In a town full of prey that she didn’t even eat personally as her shift, it would be difficult for sure to stay on a diet that would allow her to stay in peak form. She hadn’t even though about it until her stomach pains were beginning to mold into a soft continuous ache. A plan would be needed, but for now, she would survive off of what Aunt Sophie and the village provided. Yawning finally as her body began to awaken fully, she pushed back the covers to her waist to feel the air of the room and observe her surroundings more carefully. She wondered if she should even get up and move around, but it was likely that she would be pushed back down to the bed. If it were someone in particular, she’d have no objections, but that would definitely not be the case knowing her situation. Huffing to herself in a playfulness she had almost forgotten, she busied herself instead with combing through her tangled hair with her fingers.

Her cheeks went a soft pink as she pushed her hair behind her ears and the twinkle of admiration resonated from her face. "Why thank you," she murmured sweetly. Then she directed her attention to Mother Chital.
The deer coolly turned as she stepped away for a bit and she threw back her head at his words. "Ya'll will get quite the experience." There was a playful smirk given by the doe before she hurried in her home to tend other customers and cooks. "I'll bring it out in ten minutes or so. Got some chairs for you's to sit in if you want." With the flick of her deer tail, she left their company.

Atticus Cross

Atticus had certainly felt the sting. His Aunt's every word echoed in his head like a broken record but thankfully, Aunt Sophie left to cool her head. He needed the space and the whole ordeal was awful.
When Atticus slipped in from the darkness and in through the front door, his head was a bit lower than usual. His eyes were on the ground. They were distant as he thought hard on the whole situation. This mess. How was this supposed to work? It was easy for Aaliyah, she wasn't prey. With a dwindling optimism, he hoped this whole thing didn't bring Aaliyah down in his Aunt's perspective. He needed all the positivity he could right now. Atticus passed a weary look at the darkness outside. Even here, he could hear the distant murmurings of the younger deer. Rubbing his neck, the man lowered his hand out by his side and meandered to the door of his room. He was slow. He bit his lip. He pressed one hand on the door and the other on the handle but he paused. After coming into reality, Atticus quietly turned the knob and peeked into the dark room to see if the girl was awake. She remained laying in bed but he could see the silhouette of her arm as she combed through her hair. The idea she was awake caused his eyes to lower. He murmured as he stepped into the room and gently shut the door, "seems you're up, huh." With a hushed sound in his voice, Atticus slipped further into the room. The moonlight peaking from behind the forest was just enough to light the area.  "I kinda need to talk to you..." He whispered. "If you're feeling good enough for it..."

Theodemar felt content at the quick response he received, and the energy the woman seemed to have. Certainly a difference from the stoic predators he had spent years around, and he enjoyed it. He watched her go before looking to Angeline once again. "You must know the best place to sit," he threw to her playfully, looking within his coin pouch and keeping the sugar glider aside gently as he grabbed some coins and then closed the pouch once more, ignoring the pains that awoke in his hand again.

Aaliyah's head lifted as she heard the movement of the doorknob, and her thoughts began to rise as to who was entering the room. By the light beaming in gently from behind just the slightest, she could tell that it was indeed who she was hoping for, and a smile spread across her face, though it didn't last too long as his voice was somber. She had a feeling this would happen. "As long as you come over here, I can talk as long as you'd like," she murmured softly in reply. Her fingers slowed in their combing, but she continued it nonetheless to keep her hands busy. After all, he wasn't close enough, yet. She had a lot to say to him, about everything that needed to be clear. Even though she wasn't really sure if there was much for her to clear.

Angeline Gray

With a faint glow to her face, she giggled and casually slipped her hand to her side. Eyeing the ground. Angeline nibbled her lip sweetly. Her voice was pleasantly soft. "Ah I wouldn't say that," she murmured. Noticing the little growls coming from Theodemar's pouch and tufts of silver fur. The girl smiled a tad and glanced behind her at the few wooden tables and chairs. Before the man had much time to collect his money, Angeline grabbed his hand again. She pulled him to the closest two seats. Her light brown hair whisked in the breeze and her green eyes shimmered. It was a simple setup, all made by the village and traded amongst themselves. She took the further seat and brought him to the chair across from her. "So tell me, I have to know how many of us you saw in the castle. Were there deer? Elk? Atticus doesn't say much. I mean...he talks but...I don't know...he's difficult to talk to." She bashfully curled a finger around her hair. Her eyes flicked from down below and to his face. Angeline's eyes fell onto his eyes.

Atticus Cross

He closed his eyes and passed them aside. As a sigh brushed through his lips, Atticus took his seat at the edge of the bed and ran his hand through his hair. Her own happiness slipped from her lips and it was so beautiful seeing that smile again. He hated to watch it go. Atticus felt something tighten in his gut as he was forced to speak. "Aaliyah." He muttered and shook his head. He was so unsure of how to get this message across and make everything okay. Atticus's weary eyes opened again and fell on her loving face. Finally, he figured he just had to get it out there. "I'm sorry, I can't do this anymore, whiskers...I can't..." He whispered tenderly. Averting his gaze, he lowered his head. The silence only worsened this whole thing. "...I didn't know what I'd expect, but we can't see each other like this anymore. My Aunt found out about us and it just went downhill from there. There's just too many consequences..." He set his hand over his face in a sorrowful way. "...I'm sorry..."

Theodemar never got tired of her directing him, and he almost wanted her to continue it, though wasn't still sure how long it would last. But she was practically irresistible to not follow along, with the weather brushing her hair across her face and eyes catching the glimpses of sunlight. He'd never been able to be close enough to any girl to really admire it. He sat in the chair across from her as she seemed to suggest, making sure his pouch was still being held down the side of the chair rather than sitting on it. "He's certainly a character," he replied with amusement, though smiled. "But from my knowledge, I was the only deer. We only shifted when necessary, and I never saw any of my kind there, or any prey at all really, unless it was, well, the obvious." He swallowed down his memories to enjoy the time with Angeline. Positives only, he told himself. She didn't deserve to hear the bad parts right now. "You folk are the first I have seen gathered since I was a boy."

Aaliyah's hands slowed further until they stopped while he spoke. For some reason, she had a feeling that this would happen, her deep thoughts convincing her that this village was no good for them. No, for her. She was different, she was the outcast, like every other town she had tried to settle in. She was still just the traitor with a bounty on her head, running from the hunters that wanted her all to themselves. Not even the man she trusted most, the person she put her faith into, wanted her there. All because of the opinions of some deer. Her face turned to a scowl and her arms crossed over her chest. She supposed it was lucky that she could hardly see his expression. Made it all the easier to voice what she needed to say. For once, she wasn't going to back down from a man who thought he had the upper hand. "Bullcrap," she hissed after a few moments of silence between them. From her dull pain to her new awakening, she was in no mood to let this slide on by. She would not be pushed aside again. "As much as I respect your Aunt, you're not a man, Atticus. You helped me escape from a tiger who did things to me I don't speak of to anyone. You trained me and defied his code for months to protect me. You stood up for me after my trial and put yourself through the misery of being with me, even under the eyes of Lythedh. Yet you still think you want to toss that all aside because I'm a predator, not one of your kind?! You should know better than to think I'm going to be a rogue again, fending for myself and being hunted by the same man who will literally rip me to shreds if he sees me again." Her chest burned with the building fury that she had built up for all these years and hid away, deep within her as she thought she would never have to face it again. But here she was, facing the one person that saved her from it only to shove her back in. To think he even had the nerve...he was no man at all. He would stand up to some male who wanted to claim a female, a typical stag maneuver, but when it came to standing up for his own life, he was nothing but a rodent succumbing to their grim future at the claws of the predator. "You're not sorry at all," she scoffed after another moment passed. "You're a weak red deer who can stand up to anything except his own family." She never had much experience with a family, what it was like to feel that bond for years that was unshakable. Perhaps it put her at a disadvantage, but now she did not care. She would be the predator, sure. She would put herself on that pedestal and claim her dominance if nobody else would stand for her. And it took just one step to do so. Mustering her strength within her, she stood to her feet, a hand braced on the bed just for a moment to keep her balance but kept her stance over him. He would not win this battle, if she had any say. "You want this to end, fine. I'll go back to Lythedh, and you can watch all of your work reverse itself. If I'm not wanted here, I'll go to the place where at least I get some forced respect." Her eyes were glared into his, now that she could finally see the outline of his face. The nerve of him.

Angeline was enchanted by Theo's recollection. There was no deer there? Not even one single prey animal? She could scarcely imagine it. The girl had her hands up by her cheek as she took in his last few words but that only peaked her curiosity and she pried some more. "Gosh, that's awful." She said. "And how did you even get there anyway? Your family I mean. I wonder if they came from here..." The notion of it rolled around in her head and excited her. It would be cool to see how many others of their kind were out there. She figured they were never the only ones.

That was well anticipated. Atticus felt himself wince at her chides and felt his whole stomach curl but he had to readdress her assumption. "It has nothing to do with you staying in the village, okay. Why would you think that?" A sharp breath left his lips. She continued to chew him out and he interrupted the idea again. "Why the hell would I send you to the castle? The village isn't going to throw you out! I wasn't talking about you staying here, you are free to stay, I was talking about..." But he suddenly went quiet. Her next words mixed with her stinging attitude put a halt on his explaining. He felt his sentence slip away. "You're a weak red deer who can stand up to anything except his own family." And while she was busy discussing the rest of this, he lifted from the bed. Atticus took a step back. His nose crinkled and his jaw went tight. Only when she glared into him and went quiet did he find the time to set her straight. "There's a DAMN good reason why I listen to them!" He fired back and shook his head in disbelief. "What the hell does that suppose to mean? That I'm weak because I listen to my family?! That I'm less of a man because I trust their judgement over my own!? What the hell, Aaliyah?" The sting of her words only caused him to turn away. He couldn't believe she had said that. "There's no point standing up if they're RIGHT!"

Theodemar figured she would ask this eventually, or someone else would. But it didn't help the fact that he wasn't quite wanting to share his past, it wasn't something he was very proud of. Yet, it helped mold him into who he was, and he wouldn't have met her or anyone else here without it. He let out a sigh and let it catch in the breeze as he avoided her gaze temporarily, mustering the courage to speak what he wanted to say without startling anyone. "To put it mildly...it wasn't entirely my choice," he said quietly, hoping nobody would overhear. "My family, we were in a bit of trouble concerning the Lords and the manor. But I was just a boy, and I did whatever I could to avoid the punishment by pleading that I was innocent and had nothing to do with what my parents or family had done. So, to mock me and my species, I was placed on the highest pedestal, knighted as a guard and was assumed to be killed." Hmm. This would actually make a good story, if he left out the most gruesome parts of the ordeal that he overlooked. Perhaps it would ease him if he could make it into a more, refreshing, novel. "But I worked against it. If I had to work to prove that I could be as strong as the predator, so be it. I was constantly bullied and I bear scars of the punishments of failure, but I overcame it all. I was eventually placed at the same level as the other guards, more or less, and their pestering faded when they could focus their attentions elsewhere."

Aaliyah could hardly believe that he wouldn't know why she would think of leaving. Of all the things he knew, he should have at least had the decency to remember why she was being held prisoner in the first place by the Lord Lythedh. Seems he was even more daft than she originally assumed. She was ready to throw another tirade at him, when instead he took the upper hand. Her first instinct was to cower, but she held against it and stood firm at her feet. She was the predator, she told herself. He was not. And that was apparent by his words. "So I'm a mistake, aren't I?!" Her jaw slammed together afterwards and made her teeth hurt with the impact. But it didn't hurt as much as his dismissal. "To think that I cared about you was the real mistake here, and that's obvious. You had no intention of continuing anything with me once we got here, because your Aunt would pound you across the head like a fawn and tell you no. What a stag you are!" She huffed in mocking up to his face, her fists curled into her palms. She almost pondered walking out right then and there. If he didn't want to be with her, fine. She wasn't going to spend another second around him waiting for him to step up and take a risk for once. He had done it once, but he would never again. "I have no respect for a man who won't deal with the consequences of his actions. Who gives a shit if I'm oh so different?! I'm even outcast by my own kind! I had no regrets when I pursued you, but now they're overwhelming, if this is the end that I get with you, the boy who cowers at his family and bows down to whatever their will is!"

She could scarcely imagine that kind of life. He was forced into captivity and bullied and beaten by predators. Half amazed and half sympathetic, Angeline parted her lips and reached out to take his hand from across the table. She could sense his hesitancy. "That must have been awful, I'm sorry. I can't believe they'd do that..." Her eyes lowered. "They're so cruel and...evil and sadistic. You were just a boy...you're so strong to have endured that. I can't tell you how sorry I am." Feeling the warmth of his hand, she pulled away slowly and felt a warmth in her cheeks. "That's all over now at least and I promise I won't pry anymore. Sorry for doing that. It seemed personal...I guess. But I'm glad I heard it..."

Atticus Cross

So. They weren't on the same page after all. His eyes shifted to her face while she stood but despite all this, she wanted to keep that upper hand. It was so demeaning and cruel. Why did she want to keep herself on he top like this? What happened to her? "To think that I cared about you was the real mistake here, and that's obvious. You had no intention of continuing anything with me once we got here, because your Aunt would pound you across the head like a fawn and tell you no. What a stag you are!" He tightened his fists. "Why does that matter?!" He whipped around to face her. "Just because I'm cutting this off you're going to leave?! How short-sided can you be!? It was for your protection!! It was never about us! You were being held against your will for him and I brought you here so you'd be safe from him! That had nothing to do with me and you!" She was so delusional. Every word that slipped from her lips made no sense and it was so angry. Why was she throwing all this hate on him? After all he did? And her talking about regrets and her being a predator made him step in to shove that down. "It's not a personal choice, it's how things are! I'm the one who risked my life AGAIN and AGAIN but have you done ANYTHING? How can you pretend I'm the one manning a guillotine when I've been sticking MY neck out!! NOT YOU! I was trying to protect you!!" Absolute fury tore him to bits at all of her jabs. Was she purposefully trying to get under his skin? Was this the thanks he got for risking it all? He couldn't interpret her intentions anymore as it seemed one attempt to talk led to another. "I am bowing to NO ONE!" Atticus faced her, bewildered at how ridiculous this was. "Not even YOU, understand? What the hell do you want me to say?"

His face flushed a bright pink as she reached out and took his hand, expressing her sympathies for his past. But he curled his fingers around her smaller ones, keeping them close on the table. "You may pry, it's alright," he said softly, a smile on his face directed only to her. It almost felt like a weight off to tell his own kind of his experience. "Besides, the story is bound to be fully exposed one way or another, you deserve to know firsthand. Who else would be so interested directly, except you? I don't mind sharing my past, though you will have to return the favor if you ask too much." He gave her a teasing wink along with his words, his smile turning to a grin to her.

Aaliyah's anger seemed to be slowly subsiding when his words argued against hers, rather strongly and with determination she wasn't expecting. She struggled internally to find a strong argument, to stay the spitfire leopard that could pursue through any storm. But when it came to Atticus...she growled to herself and her eyes lowered from his to gaze at anything, everything beyond him. What was he to say? Nothing she could even say anymore would really truly be a foundation against him. But, she took a deep breath and let it out slowly, her nails slowly removing their deep embedding in her skin that instantly hurt when she did. She needed to calm down. Anger wasn't getting her anywhere, and she was too tired to continue it anyways. Her body was sending many signals to stop, so she let it. "If you really made this decision on your own, fine. You won't ever see my face again. But if it's your Aunt making you think we can't make this work, then I have some claws I can put into some unpleasant places. She doesn't know crap about anything, and I'm not having some little brown-furred creature dictate what we can and can't do. Nobody is going to find us here, you've made that obvious from the fact that nobody has found you. Us being together isn't going to change a single thing here, and frankly I don't give two swings of my furry tail what their opinions are, out there." Her eyes met his again, and she tried her best to keep her head high, no matter how badly her own inner argument was. "The only reason I'm still here, is you. I'm not abandoning that because someone doesn't agree. After all I've been through, they don't have a say in my life, or yours."

She couldn't help but cover her lips and flush at his little tease. It was a refreshing side of him. With a past like that, she was amazed he had shared at all, it seemed so personal. Her serene eyes seemed to glow at his presence. "Oh don't bother, Theodemar, champion. I have nothing to say," Angeline giggled. "But I'm sure what you know about the castle would be valuable here. Considering most know so little. It's...really good we have you...or...the village, I mean." The girl's eyes came upon their entwined fingers. She felt a warmth in her chest. "Mm, can you smell that? Food is on its way it seems."

Atticus Cross

He didn't appreciate the threat against the people he cared about, even if she didn't see it as he did. His Aunt took her in and cared for her. As far he was aware the conversation was over. If she was going to snap like that he saw no point talking. Atticus breathed out heavily. He lowered his head and furrowed his brow. His eyes tore away from hers. "Do whatever you want...I really don't know what's going on anymore." Atticus whispered. "I wanted to talk about this but that's impossible." Turning away again, the man began to step away from her and head for the door. He clasped the doorknob. He said in a hushed way. "Why bother with me when you should get yourself a -real- man." Atticus hissed as he threw himself out the door and slammed it behind him.
