[After leaving the others, Mercy and Royce ride on towards the river, and the elven territory beyond. Mercy starts out bright and alert, looking at everything that passes them by - exclaiming over pretty birds, pointing out interesting-looking trees, and, always, asking questions.

But it's been hours now, and she's starting to droop. Her chatter quiets. Her legs, which had swung energetically off the sides of her pony, are now still, and her fingers curl into the horses's mane. She lets out a yawn.]

[ It's been hours, and Royce is surprised that he doesn't find the chatter as annoying as he thought he would. He answers questions, sure, but mostly he just lets her talk. He's got his hood down, his hair pulled back in a loose ponytail, relaxed. He's never truly off guard, not out in the wild and especially not with Mercy riding next to him, but this is about as easy as he can get.

When Mercy yawns, Royce glances over at her. ]


Tired?
bywolves: (that's what you're wearing...)

[personal profile] bywolves 2017-04-19 11:19 pm (UTC)(link)
You sure? [ He asks, vaguely amused. He's also not... too sure about Mr. Rings, but he's stuck with the thing, since Mr. Rings refuses to be separated from Mercy. ] That's the second time you've yawned.

[ Aw, cute. Though Royce sort of just shakes his fist a bit, mentally, at Gwen. Fairy princess. How is he supposed to live up to that? ]

We won't get there for a few days yet, Mercy. [ Amberton Lee is about three or four days ride from the Nilwalden River. ] We'll ride a bit further, but we are going to have to stop and camp for the night.

[ Royce is quiet for a moment, and then: ] You can ride with me if you want to sleep. I'll make sure you don't fall off.
bywolves: (say what.)

[ Sterling. Royce is also cursing Nim, quietly. ]

Yes. We'll tie Sterling to Mouse and he'll follow. [ A beat. ] Rings might want to stay on Sterling's back.
bywolves: (hnnnn distance.)

[personal profile] bywolves 2017-04-19 11:49 pm (UTC)(link)
[ But Royce doesn't want the raccoon on him... He wrinkles his nose slightly, but. ]

He can stay as long as he doesn't fidget. [ Royce concedes. ] Do you remember how to stop Sterling from walking? [ So they can arrange themselves. ]
bywolves: (da fuq)

[ Royce pulls on Mouse's reins and makes a clicking sound with his tongue to get her to stop. He jumps down from the horse and comes around to reach his arms up to Mercy so she can climb down. He gives Mr. Rings a warning look. Behave. ]

[ Royce is not used to this at all - any of this. Not Mercy, not being the king, nothing. He's a bit tense as they make their way into the city. He's waiting for the damn bodyguards to come find them, or any of the officials. And sure enough, there's one that approaches them. Full elves are intimidating, tall - but Royce isn't concerned so much about danger as he is just... annoyed.

He ignores the official for a second to smile small at Mercy. ]


Not better than the palace at Amberton Lee, is it?
bywolves: (sass.)

[personal profile] bywolves 2017-05-06 04:00 am (UTC)(link)
Yes, this is where we're going to live. [ The official clears his throat. Royce speaks pretty much only to Mercy, even still. ] And I'm assuming he's the man who is going to show us to our rooms and not bother us with anything else after a long journey.

[ The elf looks disgruntled, but... he has to do as he's told. ]
bywolves: (you're going to regret that.)

[personal profile] bywolves 2017-05-06 04:07 am (UTC)(link)
[ The elf glances at her. ] Hello.

[ He's being polite, but only just so. ] Emperor, you have quite a few matters to attend to.

[ Royce wrinkles his nose. Gross. ] My daughter and I are tired. I'll deal with things in the morning, after we've settled in. [ He tells the elf, and the elf just barely stops a frustrated sigh before gesturing. ]

Very well, then. I'll lead you to the palace.
bywolves: (smirk.)

[personal profile] bywolves 2017-05-06 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
[ The elf gives her a very cold glare, and Royce lifts his eyebrows. Silence, for a second, and then, stiffly, the elf says: ] Thank you. [ Before continuing on to lead them to the palace. Hurriedly, almost. And far away from Mr. Rings.

Royce just looks amused. ]
bywolves: (that's what you're wearing...)

[personal profile] bywolves 2017-05-06 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
He's not angry with you. [ Royce reassures her. ] Just stuck up.

It isn't his decision. It's mine. And I'm telling you that you get to live in the fairy palace.
bywolves: (touched a nerve.)

[personal profile] bywolves 2017-05-06 04:23 am (UTC)(link)
He had better not be. [ Royce's tone drops about ten degrees. The elf's shoulders tense, just slightly. ] Your mother was beautiful and brilliant. Anybody who is angry about her being your mother doesn't belong here.
