  1. Percival ignored the bread for the moment, lost...

    Percival ignored the bread for the moment, lost in contemplation over the woman's response. Pippa was staying in Hebron. Indefinitely. And just like that, everything he had considered and...
  2. If there had been any visual reaction to his...

    If there had been any visual reaction to his words, Percival didn't notice it on the girl. He didn't know what he expected her to say to the comment, or if he expected her to say anything at all. ...
  3. It hadn't occurred to Percival that his actions...

    It hadn't occurred to Percival that his actions would be spied, or misconstrued, by the general populace, at least some of which were bound to recognize him. No doubt that it would be looked upon as...
  4. When she swore, Percy turned to look at her...

    When she swore, Percy turned to look at her oddly. It wasn't as though he had forgotten that she was there, but clearly he wasn't expecting an oath to come flying from her pretty little mouth. But...
  5. "Get out," he asked, as though he had forgotten...

    "Get out," he asked, as though he had forgotten that he had done just that. He was trying to remember the events exactly. He had heard Jesse tell the exaggerated story so many times that he had to...
  6. Percy wasn't sure if there was something more...

    Percy wasn't sure if there was something more about her explanation than what was on the surface. As much as he was schooled by tutors, he wasn't exactly an authority on alliteration. In fact, he...
  7. There was the slightest of turns, as though...

    There was the slightest of turns, as though Percival might have heard something, but couldn't be sure if the girl was mumbling or whether the Hebron afternoon was playing with the small weather vane...
  8. Percy wasn't necessarily looking to contradict...

    Percy wasn't necessarily looking to contradict her, because it was nothing that warranted an argument. Though it did occur to him that it would hardly be her fault, especially since there isn't...
  9. Luckily for Pippa, Percival was not his friend. ...

    Luckily for Pippa, Percival was not his friend. Even though this wasn't the window that Jesse had fallen from, it was entirely possible that he could have been a similar victim if he wasn't careful....
  10. We all end in the ocean, we all start in the streams - 11/12 Afternoon, Riverfront - Percy/Pippa

    Percival sat in the high window of the bell tower, looking down the boulevard in the direction of the Delarose estate. His fingers kept reaching for his lower lip, prodding it to see if it was...
  11. At the mention of Jesse's limbs being in tact,...

    At the mention of Jesse's limbs being in tact, Percy could only chuckle. "You heard the man," he said to Pippa. "He's got nine lives. And he probably has gone through about eight of them." Not...
  12. "My my, you are brave, aren't you Avery?" Percy...

    "My my, you are brave, aren't you Avery?" Percy was shaking his head casually, and their was a soft chuckle on her cheek. "We don't swim in the river," he said as a matter of fact. "Not since we...
  13. It struck him as odd that she had commented about...

    It struck him as odd that she had commented about being able to sleep in his arms. Not because he thought it made her a particular way, or that it affected him in a way other than with a reassuring...
  14. Percy was convinced that her smile was a trap. ...

    Percy was convinced that her smile was a trap. He wondered how many sets of fingers had been broken by her uncle, simply because they couldn't help themselves. After all, if mice could resist the...
  15. Percival could only laugh at Pippa's explanation,...

    Percival could only laugh at Pippa's explanation, and shook his head at her warmly. "Most women are smart enough to not trust my bullshit," he told her honestly. He didn't seem to mind the fact...
  16. Percival was still recovering from the incident a...

    Percival was still recovering from the incident a few moments prior, and silently working through scenarios in which he could find more time to see Pippa. If he asked Vivienne for time to see his...
  17. The problem with the moment, and the contented...

    The problem with the moment, and the contented nature of the aftermath, was that Percy had never been the type of man who could accept the happiness without the added sense that it could never last. ...
  18. There seemed to be a silent understanding between...

    There seemed to be a silent understanding between them about what happened, and Percival didn't want to necessarily disturb it. As much as he was pleasantly surprised, he was simultaneously content...
  19. "I hope they aren't expensive," Percival said,...

    "I hope they aren't expensive," Percival said, referencing the heels. "You'd be hard pressed to find anything that might make you look prettier than you already are," he said, this time turning his...
  20. Being a pretty boy peacock might have been a...

    Being a pretty boy peacock might have been a Xavier thing. And being a goof might have been a Jesse thing. But in his more light-hearted moments, Percy could manage both to a relatively successful...
  21. "You could try, Avery," he said somewhat...

    "You could try, Avery," he said somewhat haughtily. "But it wouldn't matter in the end," he told her. "I make everything look good," he assured her, drawing his arm across his chest and walking a...
  22. Percival made a face as though he might be...

    Percival made a face as though he might be skeptical of her assessment, but he only let it fade into a smile, and then shook his head. "I'll let you try tomorrow," he offered, knowing that he would...
  23. "Good for who," he asked out loud, thinking that...

    "Good for who," he asked out loud, thinking that he had rather meant to internalize the question. But he didn't cringe or make an excuse for it. Percy had tripped over enough sentences in his life...
  24. If Percy was upset by his missed opportunity for...

    If Percy was upset by his missed opportunity for chivalry at the expense of the well worn cloak, he didn't show it. From the jump, Pippa had made it perfectly clear that she didn't want to be...
  25. As the minutes and hours dragged on, the Avery...

    As the minutes and hours dragged on, the Avery problem seemed to grow exponentially. Percy had decided far earlier in the day that he liked the woman. Liked her demeanor. Liked her smile. Liked...
