are you deranged like me?
Viper greens watch as the guard shifts nervously on his feet. I can almost taste the slight tinge of fear that courses through him, making him second guess himself. He is trying to talk, trying to tell me to come back tomorrow through a slightly stuttered sentence. "I mean no offense to you, love, but believe me. The King wants to see me." The smile creeps across blood red lips before I can stop it, my eyes raking over the guards form. "You have to give a man what he wants." A seductive nibble on the lower lip has the guard's words stuck upon his throat before he tells me that he will return, wandering away towards another hall.
I smooth my hands down along the length of my dress, the full black skirt touching the floor like a whisper of a kiss. For once, I chose to wear a full length dress, but I still wasn't dressed like a prude. The deep cut of the dress showed off enough cleavage to keep a man interested, but not enough that would scream out my occupation. Long raven black hair bounces about my back and shoulders in loose curls, a blood red ribbon tied around my neck in a delicate bow to the side. No one would ever describe me as pretty and delicate though. Even with my small stature, my very presence demands attention in ways that are mysterious and captivating. Something like a guard or a king will not hinder me or cause me to change the way I enter a room. I bow to no one and everyone bows to me in one way or another.
A proper smile lights up my face as the guard returns to my side with news. He seems curious and a bit timid still and I gently place a hand upon his shoulder, near his neck. "Thank you so much for all of your help. His Highness needs the information I have. I promise, your assistance will not be wasted on me." The words drip like honey, sweet and soft, from my lips. We turn towards the hall that he stepped out of, the click of my heels soft, creating a stark contrast to the loud and heavy foot falls of the guard.
When we reach the door, I blow him a little kiss before he opens it. As the door opens I can't help but notice a little prince take a seat upon the floor beside the desk. Quite an interesting meeting to choose for a lesson.
I approach the desk slowly, stopping before the large desk and offering a small curtsy as the man before me smiles. His face is handsome, beautiful even, but I know that underneath the beauty there is something else, something that I am all too familiar with. I meet his eyes with a determined confidence and offer him a gentle smile. "I appreciate you allowing me the pleasure of seeing you, Your Highness. I know you are a busy man with lots of demanding things that take up your time." My hand moves to rest lightly upon his desk. "But I could not keep this information from you. You needed to know of it sooner rather than later." My smile grows a bit wider as I look him dead in the eyes. "I have knowledge of the Usurper and his current camp location."
are you insane like me?
