Negotiations and Bonuses
« on: January 06, 2013, 06:59:17 pm »
This is the little one-shot I wrote in response to the prompt thread Riamachia started.  It's just a short little scene, but I hope you guys enjoy it. :)
"A stray cat perhaps."
"Adorable, loyal, and lovable?"
"Nosy, curious, and independent."  His eyes crinkled.  "Not something you plan to bring home."
Amaranthe found hope in his light tone.  "But something you appreciate once it's there?"

Hehehe, nicely done little scene. I could definitely see Sicarius ponder if he should burn his clothes, and then think better of it :P

Thanks! 

Yes, I can see him thinking something like, "I could just burn them.  But then I would have to shop.  Scrubbing it is, then."

Yay!  I'm glad you guys enjoyed it!  And I agree, I don't think we can have too many Sicarius moments.  :)

i wonder if Sic has soft hands? since he has no dirt under his nails, he keeps himself tidy.

I don't think he has soft hands, no. All the weapon training and manipulation he does means quite a few calluses have formed over the year. I think he has strong hands, but they'd be a bit rough-feeling.

callouses would catch on clothing, which could be a give away.  however i know from experience that working with wooden handled tools etc makes the skin tough but smooth.  maybe that?
