  1. "A little bit of both, and at the same time, kind...

    "A little bit of both, and at the same time, kind of neither." The girl gave a little shrug. "The village I grew up in was pretty small, so there weren't many kids around my age. When I began...
  2. Pippa wanted to believe that Percy was right;...

    Pippa wanted to believe that Percy was right; that she'd be able to remain fairly anonymous, and still be able to move through the city with Vicky without drawing attention. But she wasn't very...
  3. "I thought your plan was to storm Hebron by...

    "I thought your plan was to storm Hebron by force, while trying to convince the populace that you were naught more than a glorified babysitter."

    "It was working pretty well there for awhile,"...
  4. Pippa wasn't entirely sure if she was disturbed...

    Pippa wasn't entirely sure if she was disturbed or in awe of the tricky nature of The Gauntlet, and her face displayed a combination of both in equal measure. "That is impressive," she said, giving...
  5. There was a strange duality developing in Pippa's...

    There was a strange duality developing in Pippa's mind, the more she interacted with Percival. On one level, she was perfectly content to, as she'd said, let whatever this was between them develop...
  6. Rather than be offended at the rough language or...

    Rather than be offended at the rough language or the lack of propriety, Pippa almost began to feel more at ease. While it was true that when she was working with her father or uncle the men had all...
  7. "Was it my imagination, or did I hear Ser...

    "Was it my imagination, or did I hear Ser Percival refer to you as Pippa, just before I kicked him in the face yesterday?"

    "It wasn't your imagination," the guard - no, squire now - answered, a...
  8. Having already been a guard may have given Pippa...

    Having already been a guard may have given Pippa a little bit of an advantage over others in her position, starting out as a squire. Sure, she was somewhat impatient for the events of the day to...
  9. Let's Get Down to Business - 11/13, Dawn barracks, after the joust - Guy/Pippa/closed?

    The crowds were heavy on the city streets as Pippa left the Delarose manor, polearm in hand. The joust had been over for about an hour, and the people had filtered out of the stadium and into the...
  10. It was nice, Pippa thought, that Percy allowed...

    It was nice, Pippa thought, that Percy allowed the staff to live here in his absence. It would have been a shame for such a large house to stand empty, waiting for its master to decide to drop in,...
  11. "Well," she began, clarifying, "at least until...

    "Well," she began, clarifying, "at least until after dinner. I can't afford to get home as late as I did the other night again...your father would have words for me for sure, and he'd be the least...
  12. "If you'd like to see what he'd do to convince...

    "If you'd like to see what he'd do to convince you to drag me to your bed, I could set him on the case."

    Pippa gave her companion a sidelong glance before soundly shaking her head, chuckling. "Oh...
  13. What Pippa didn't know about the royal family far...

    What Pippa didn't know about the royal family far outweighed what she did. Of course she'd heard plenty of the rumors: that Princess Veronica was perpetually on the verge of a nervous breakdown,...
  14. Usually, having to put effort into trying to...

    Usually, having to put effort into trying to relax didn't end up working very well. However, while Pippa noticed a little tension, she merely attributed it to the newness of their friendship, and...
  15. Pippa noticed the pause, and the look, but she...

    Pippa noticed the pause, and the look, but she didn't blink, almost as if she were challenging him to call her on it. She wasn't, really; in something of a departure from her normal attention to how...
  16. There was something almost vulnerable about the...

    There was something almost vulnerable about the way Percy looked, all curled in on himself. He seemed utterly at ease, which was pleasing in and of itself, but there was another aspect to it that...
  17. Continuing whatever was between them was not...

    Continuing whatever was between them was not going to be a straightforward or simple matter, Pippa knew. There were too many things that tied them together already for them to be entirely in control...
  18. "We shall have to see," was all Pippa said in the...

    "We shall have to see," was all Pippa said in the end to the matter of getting her parents here. It would be more to think about; she wasn't sure if her parents would be comfortable in a place like...
  19. Pippa listened as Percy discounted her concern...

    Pippa listened as Percy discounted her concern with flair and sarcasm, and although she smiled, it didn't really make her feel any better. Not that she'd been overly concerned before; she'd been...
  20. Watching Percy process what she'd told him, and...

    Watching Percy process what she'd told him, and flounder through expressing his thoughts, made Pippa feel better about the feeling of being out of her depth that hadn't quite left her since the...
  21. Pippa couldn't even imagine having been in such a...

    Pippa couldn't even imagine having been in such a situation. She'd been in a few scrapes before, but never anything near the scale or weight of that. The skill of the foe, the importance of the...
  22. "If nothing else, I want your leaving to be as...

    "If nothing else, I want your leaving to be as difficult for you as I fear it will be for me."

    At first when Percy had pulled out lines like that, Pippa had smiled, laughed, and quietly brushed...
  23. "I'll never forget the first lesson I ever had...

    "I'll never forget the first lesson I ever had with Guy."

    Pippa listened to Percy recount the encounter with a curious smile on her face. For a long moment she wondered if he was messing with...
  24. The story seemed to pain Percy, or be difficult...

    The story seemed to pain Percy, or be difficult to remember, and Pippa almost felt a little guilty for asking him to recall it in the first place. As he closed his eyes and seemed to shut out the...
  25. It was clear that as Percival recalled the day he...

    It was clear that as Percival recalled the day he was almost pulled back into it as it lived in his memory. His face grew distant, his voice low, and Pippa found it easy to conjure an image of it...
