It's just evening on Eiattu, the last rays of sunset are filtering in through the window and turning the floor to pale fire, lighting the tips of the trees and roofs of the palace that Rial, sprawled on a windowseat, is carefully immortalizing in pencil. Plourr is at a nearby desk, working hard, bent over datapads and stacks of flimsi.

Rial cocks his head on one side, squints out the window, and turns to glance at Plourr.

"Working?"

Plourr sits at the desk, legs folded under her at an impossible angle and her chin resting on her hand. "Mmhmm," she says absently, frowning at a thick sheaf of flimsi and flipping through it.

The surface of the desk is strewn with datapads, flimsi, scattered notes, stylii, and datacards, along with a small holoprojector and the remains of a meal.

The empress has been here a while.

Not looking up, Plourr shoots his hand an unthrilled stare. "I said I was going to get through these today, and I still have two to go."

"I've already taken two breaks this afternoon," she grumbles, but she glances out the window over her shoulder.

When he takes that step, his hand comes away from the report, and she considers it for a moment. "I want to do right by them, Rial," she says, but she's rising.

"Fifteen minutes," she says firmly, and she takes his outstretched hand.

It is nice. Plourr settles into the windowseat with her back on the wall and her bare feet up on the seat, resting her shoulder against the window. She rests her arms on her knees, watching the way that the setting sun bathes their city in red, orange, yellow, pink, and gold warmth.

Plourr starts to gently roll her eyes -- and then she smiles faintly, tired, but pleased.

The kiss she leans over and brushes against his lips is probably a better answer than the one she gave a year and a half ago.

"Such ego, my count," she says, but she's grinning. "I didn't know you." She brushes his hair back with her fingers. "Not well."

fighting_mad: (medium - mmmm)
From: [personal profile] fighting_mad
"Now I do," she agrees, and she settles back against the wall. She closes her eyes and tips her head back, letting the fading sunlight play across her face.

Eyes still closed, she settles her feet in Rial's lap.

Once it registers that Rial said something, she cracks first one eyelid, then the other. She watches him for a moment; the gentleness with which he touches her, the brown hair falling into his face, the way that the ring on his hand reflects the light.

The stars will start to make their appearances soon, she knows, and along with them, thoughts of what it would be like to be among them. To shout and laugh and argue with the Rogues. To fly, still, and to have the freedom to run if she wanted.

Out the window, the sun slowly sinks below the tangled jungle on the horizon; lights are slowly flicking on, bright and hopeful, in the city spread out below. People coming home for the night.

Plourr looks back to Rial, her brown eyes warm and considering, and she nudges his knee with her toes.

"Fuck yes."

"You'd better be," she says wryly, nudging his leg again.

The empress prods his hand with her bare foot, signaling that the rubbing should re-commence. She watches the last of the sun's rays sink, and she stares upward thoughtfully, at the high casement of the window.

"Faolán."

She exhales softly and closes her eyes.

"Mmmm. Can't remember where I heard it; would have to look it up. With my luck, it means 'ass' in some obscure Rodian dialect."
