[with Thomas, in Seval]

Still in the town of Seval, still in the abandoned building they've made their hideout. Kaya hasn't yet begun to get nervous about staying too long in one place, but it won't be long now.

It's been raining all day. Luckily, the only leak in the roof is all the way at one end of the room; they've set up a barrel to catch the dripping water and retired to the other end. If it isn't too cold, later, maybe she'll use some of the water to wash with.

Right now she's curled in her nest of blankets and straw, half-dozing, with her back to the wall.

He squeezes her a little tighter.

"Yeah?"

He smooths a hand over her hair.

"You don't have to talk about it if you don't want to."

It's obviously a sore subject for Kaya and Thomas doesn't prod at the subject any more, letting her fall silent.

Instead, he makes sure both arms are wrapped securely around her, tucking the girl close.

He rubs slow, soothing circles into her back.



"What happened?"
vagrant_malkin: (unimpressed)

"Assholes," seems to be his opinion on said guards. Especially since he's seen the way they've treated Kaya when they've gotten their hands on her.

He smiles ever so faintly.

"Well they are," he defends.

He snorts a laugh.

"Yep, they're definitely that."

He ruffles her hair a little.

"Enjoy it, kiddo, alright? Don't let them take that from you."
vagrant_malkin: (unimpressed)

[personal profile] vagrant_malkin 2014-07-06 04:54 am (UTC)(link)
"Of course not. We won't let them."
vagrant_malkin: (neutral)

[personal profile] vagrant_malkin 2014-07-20 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
He looks at her curiously.

"What do they say you stole?"
vagrant_malkin: (sad)

[personal profile] vagrant_malkin 2014-07-20 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
"I'm not saying it isn't, kiddo," he says softly. "Just asking what it is."

He doesn't move to touch it. Not unless he offers it to him. Instead, he leans just a little to get a better look. "It's very pretty."

"You've done a wonderful job in keeping it safe."

Beat.

"Is there a reason they want it, aside from saying you stole it?"
vagrant_malkin: (unimpressed)

[personal profile] vagrant_malkin 2014-07-20 04:40 am (UTC)(link)
"No mater if it is or not, we won't let them have it."
vagrant_malkin: (unimpressed)

[personal profile] vagrant_malkin 2014-07-21 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
"And of course we don't know where that is."
