Sanaryelle

Oliver-

I drew back slightly. "Come on, Idriel," I said with a grin. "You're making this too easy for me."

~Idriel~

I forced a smile and raised my sword again. 'Sorry,' I said. 'I just wanted to give you some sort of chance.'

Sanaryelle

Oliver-

"Giving me a false sense of security?" I said, raising my eyebrows. "You do play tough."

Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

I smiled again, and went for an attcking move this time, trying to focus solely on this match. It was more difficult than I thought.

Sanaryelle

Oliver-

Idriel attacked with a quick combination, but I blocked every single one of her strikes, and then pushed her sword away and countered with a slash at rib-level.

Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

Again, I only just managed to dodge. Was this what Cariel had meant by Oliver distracting me?

Sanaryelle

Oliver-

I followed up with a series of low-aimed blows, which I expected Idriel to block, and then abruptly switched my grip to my left hand, and aimed high.

Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

My brain was whirling too fast for me to think straight, and I completely missed Oliver's sword when I swung my blade up to try and block it.

Sanaryelle

Oliver-

I tapped Idriel's shoulder. Two for me. But rather than laugh and gloat, like I usually would have done, I lowered my weapon. "All right," I said. "What's wrong?"

Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'Oh, nothing,' I lied. 'Just... thinking. About... things.'

Oliver-

I gave a slight smile. "Bullshit," I said softly.

Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'It's not, actually,' I said, with a small smile. 'I really was thinking about things.'

Sanaryelle

Oliver-

"It's not that part I disagree with," I said. "It's you making it sound so casual. Idriel, you've been gloating about the chance to beat me again, and now that it's time your mind isn't totally on the fight. It's something serious, then."

Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

I sighed softly. 'I was just thinking about the conversation we had earlier,' I said quietly.

4/22/2011 #2,984
Sanaryelle

Oliver-

I nodded and leaned on my practice sword. "So - what were you thinking?"

4/22/2011 #2,985
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'Well...' I sighed. I knew I had to be honest with him. 'I was wondering why you're still so against the idea,' I said quietly.

Sanaryelle

Oliver-

I looked at Idriel, and then nodded. "I see. Well, to be honest with you, my relationship with Lynid has somewhat - tainted my opinions about marriage."

4/22/2011 #2,987
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

I nodded. 'And you think that my experience with Garret hasn't done similar to me? I know it's not the same, but still...'

4/22/2011 #2,988
Sanaryelle

Oliver-

"I've been doing my best to forget her," I said. "And I think that, if I marry again, that'll bring it all back."

4/22/2011 #2,989
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'I hope that I wouldn't remind you of her,' I said. 'I wouldn't ever do what she did to you.'

4/22/2011 #2,990
Sanaryelle

Oliver-

"I know," I said, "but I never thought she would, either. And - she changed. I changed, too, after I married her. I don't want anything between us to change."

4/22/2011 #2,991
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'In what way did you change?' I asked quietly.

4/22/2011 #2,992
Sanaryelle

Oliver-

"At first, for the better," I said. "I thought I was going to be a father..." I stopped talking when I suddenly thought of Linette.

4/22/2011 #2,993
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'Well, you know that's not going to happen,' I said quietly. 'But... well, you'd effectively be an uncle.'

4/22/2011 #2,994
Sanaryelle

Oliver-

I forced a smile, but Charter, it was going to happen. And if Idriel and I were considering marriage, I would have to tell her about that. But not now - Charter, not now.

4/22/2011 #2,995
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'And I'm not going to change,' I said. 'I've already told you: in my mind, we're as good as married anyway. We'd only be making it official. Nothing would change between us.'

4/22/2011 #2,996
Sanaryelle

Oliver-

"If we do decide to," I said quietly, "I would have to - tell you some things."

4/22/2011 #2,997
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

I frowned. 'What things?' I asked. And why would he only tell me them if we decided to get married? Why wouldn't he tell me them anyway?

4/22/2011 #2,998
Sanaryelle

Oliver-

"I will tell you," I promised. "I'm just... not ready, yet."

4/22/2011 #2,999
Fishy Biscuits

~Idriel~

'Right,' I said, sighing. I hated the fact that he was still keeping things from me. I was being completely honest with him, even when I hadn't wanted to be. Why couldn't he be the same?
