Paks Liard

Einion. The name bounced around in Paks’ mind as she wiped away tears of laughter. “Nice to meet you, Einion,” she flashed him her smirk once more before looking around. The room seemed to spin, which made her inclined to stay put on the floor, though she did sit up.

Something was going on behind her, and she looked back to see something happening over by the chandelier that crashed down earlier. Oh right. . .something happened. What are they doing?

“Oh hey! There’s the woman I was about to kiss before you distracted me,” Paks replied as she looked back to Einion. The revelation started an entirely new round of giggles from the Drin, and her entire core hurt from the amount of laughing she’d done. “What’s she doing, I wonder?” Paks asked as she looked back.

Something happened. . .several somethings that the Drin didn’t quite understand. There were flames, though Paks didn’t have a good view. A moment later, just as she made the unfortunate decision to try and stand, there was a Whooomp, and Paks was right back on her arse. She started to giggle again, though the room seemed to slow and eventually stop spinning.

The Drin shook her head, as if to get rid of cobwebs, and looked around. “What. . .what was all that?” she asked herself. She was certainly one to enjoy the drink, and she’d have more than her share of alcohol in the night, but she tried not to consume so much that she was not in control of her faculties.

Not too far from her was the woman she’d kissed, and realization slammed into her like a ton of bricks. She’d been the Amyrlin Seat once. What was her name? Miahana? Miahala...that was it! Miahala Sedai. Relation to Riahana Gaidin, Mistress of Arms.

Blood and bloody ashes! It was Jesi I wanted to snog, not the former Amyrlin Seat and Mistress of Flame.

“That may be career limiting,” she muttered to herself as she looked to Einion with a bit of a sheepish grin. “Oh well, what’s done is done, I suppose,” she added as she pushed herself to her feet. Finally managing to keep her balance, she reached down and offered him a hand, “I could tell you I am not usually so forward, but that wouldn’t be entirely truthful, though I tend to be more forward with women than men. I do hope, though, that I didn’t offend.”

Now that he was on his feet, Einion found that his head was throbbing. At points, it was almost so bad he couldn't hear what was going on around him. After a few moments, though, it did seem to ease itself up. He took a deep breath and then it filtered through his mind what she had said. "Offend?" he repeated. "No. No, of course not."

His brows drew together as he looked at her. She was beautiful, but he knew that he never would have said as much to her had he not been...in whatever state that was that he'd been in.

Memories began to piece themselves back together. Even though things had only happened within the past few minutes, it was as though they had happened a long time ago and remembering things properly took a lot of effort. "I... I came over because I saw my memma," he said carefully as his mind worked; his normally so-keen mind now so sluggish.

Looking at her again, he saw the question in her eyes. "My memma. Uhm, Miahala Sedai. She is my great-great-grandmother."

Paks Liard

The eternal smirk proved not eternal. It wavered before disappearing, and Paks blinked several times before finally speaking, “Miahala Sedai. . .is your Great Great Grandmother?!” She looked from Einion to the auburn haired Captain General, and back again. She could see the resemblance.

Light, but she looks good for someone her age! the Drin thought. No way was she going to say that aloud with the chance for the woman in question might hear.

Paks shook her head, and the smirk found its way back to her lips, “Well, I’ll say you take after her not just in looks, but outstanding snogging talent.” She closed the distance between them and placed a kiss on his cheek.

Jesi

Jesi pushed herself away from the man she had run into and snatched her flask back, unable to keep her confusion and hurt from her face. She had tried to be friendly, he had returned that gesture with bad manners; it made no sense at all. As she had no time for that kind of behavior while sober, let alone while drunk, she pushed herself back to her feet and moved off.

She bounced from person to person in much the manner she had begun, until abruptly a wave of…something crashed through her. She stumbled and fell against the wall, clinging to it for dear life as her vision blurred, spun, and then finally settled. The world gradually stilled as well, until the novice realized she was sober. More sober, in fact, than she had been before the odd inebriation had struck.

With sobriety came memory. Paks!

Jesi smoothed her hair, then turned with single-minded intent to find the Drin. Thankfully it didn’t take long...although as she approached, the Mayener realized Paks looked as if she had just swallowed a silverpike, and was faced off with an unfamiliar man. What’s this? Curious -and wanting a laugh to distract her from the memory of her confusing encounter with her own odd stranger- the novice made her way to the other woman’s side.

“....outstanding snogging talent,” Paks was saying as she approached, that smirk once more firmly in place.

“That’s a good talent to have,” Jesi commented with a laugh, catching the stranger’s eye. “Tell me, did you acquire it naturally, or after a great deal of practice?”

Einion had already been gaping at Paks, recalling what he'd done and shocked at what she said, but when the second beautiful woman came up and was just so...easy about it, he thought he might have to flee. However, he knew that actually running away would not befit his heritage or his age, but...

"Not practice," he said with a slight stammer. "I... I don't know what happened. Do you know what happened? I certainly didn't feel right."

Once he recognized that he was rambling, he stopped talking altogether and swallowed hard. He wasn't the type to often attract female attention, let alone two and he wasn't sure what to do with either of them, or this situation, or himself! What would his father have done, he wondered. Not that he'd ever ask a question like that.

He glanced over his shoulder. "I...I should probably...go..."

Jesi

The stranger looked as if he’d been run up a tree or into a corner and did not know how to escape. “I….I should probably...go…”

Jesi’s smile lit up her face as she reached for the stranger’s arm. “Not so fast!” She said with a laugh. “I must know more about this natural talent of yours. If Paks got to enjoy it, surely you wouldn’t mind demonstrating for another?” She fluttered her eyelashes at him outrageously, her head tilted coquettishly to the side.

The man’s blush was spectacular, spreading from chest to neck, then his face, gradually staining his skin darker and darker crimson as he looked from one woman to the other. Jesi gave Paks a sidelong look, contemplating how long to keep up the charade. She truly had no interest in kissing any man, let alone a total stranger!

Finally she ‘broke’ with a laugh. “Oh very well. If Paks says you can go, then I won’t stop you,” she said, then leaned in and gave the poor man a kiss on the cheek. “For taking care of my friend,” the Mayener said with a smile as she straightened. Then she looked at Paks, her smile becoming positively roguish.

“What say you and I scamper off?”

Paks Liard

Jesi!

Things were slightly awkward with Einion, though Paks was doing her best not to embarrass him (or her) any more than was necessary. Jesi, though, put the poor man in a spot. Paks couldn’t help but be amused by the numerous shades of pink and red Einion seemed to turn. Jesi was perhaps more devious than Paks, and not for the first time, the Drin wondered if perhaps she’d met her match.

“I say we relent and let the poor man go. If we torture him any longer, he is likely going to pop and I for one don’t want to feel the wrath of Miahala Sedai,” Paks replied. She felt heat on her own cheeks as she looked over to the Captain General. Great great Grandmother? Seriously? How?

The questions would remain unanswered, at least for the evening. Jesi’s roguish look, coupled with Paks being. . .well, Paks, meant the Drin already had other things on her mind.

“What say you and I scamper off?”

The eternal smirk was indeed back and with extra smirkishness behind it, “I say let’s scamper away. You and I have some catching up to do, if I am not mistaken.” She wiggled her brows and slung an arm around the Novice’s neck. She flashed Einion a warm, albeit mischievous smile, “When you find your Memma, tell her the Drin who snogged her still has no regrets.” She let go a soft laugh at the expression on Einion’s face before escorting Jesi somewhere more. . .private.
