  1. "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...
  2. 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,...
  3. 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...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. "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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. "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...
  12. "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...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. Pippa watched as Corran rose from his seat, a...

    Pippa watched as Corran rose from his seat, a half smile on her face. Knowing that she didn't know may have been enough, but it didn't make her feel any more prepared for the coming days. So many...
  16. It was impossible to not smile as Percy wheeled...

    It was impossible to not smile as Percy wheeled around in front of her on the steps, and the guard tittered a giggle when he hopped up to kiss her. Having to look down to receive it was a bit of an...
  17. "She showed me a very good time," Pippa said with...

    "She showed me a very good time," Pippa said with a smile. The ball had been a step into an entirely new world for Pippa, and while it could easily have been tedious if she were in different...
  18. "Just be prepared if others decide to question...

    "Just be prepared if others decide to question it."

    If there was one thing Pippa had grown used to, it was people questioning her. Her abilities, her choices, her placement. There had always...
  19. "That's a sorry excuse for an angel if that's the...

    "That's a sorry excuse for an angel if that's the result her arrival gets," Pippa said, chuckling. Really, she didn't feel too guilty, or responsible at all for the blow Percy had gotten. It wasn't...
  20. As Victoria settled against her, Pippa wrapped...

    As Victoria settled against her, Pippa wrapped her arms around the girl, lacing her fingers together to give some passive support. She wasn't at all bothered to have Vicky decide to take a nap on...
  21. What with the events of the day thus far, Pippa...

    What with the events of the day thus far, Pippa felt like she was running late. Perhaps she wasn't, and it was just her harried mind that made her feel that way, but to that end she hadn't even...
  22. Pippa picked up on the indifference in Percy's...

    Pippa picked up on the indifference in Percy's tone, and she looked up at him, although she didn't question him. Plenty of men weren't keen on dressing formally, whether or not they had to be...
  23. Pippa was tempted to ask why he'd described the...

    Pippa was tempted to ask why he'd described the river as 'safe' when it concealed snapping monsters in its muddy depths, but the girl just cringed and shook her head. "I hope he still has all his...
  24. The guard listened without lifting her head as...

    The guard listened without lifting her head as Percy spoke of the river, and she smiled to herself as she felt his laughter rumble through his chest. "Much different than Eddleton, then," she said,...
  25. Pippa looked to Corran over Vicky's head as she...

    Pippa looked to Corran over Vicky's head as she squeezed the girl back, curious about his decision to stay in Hebron. She hadn't even known it was a thing he was considering, and while she wasn't...
