*Guinevere rarely explores outside her room or the main room of the bar, but tonight, she is outside under the stars, a shawl pulled around her shoulders.

It's just a shawl, this one.*

There is a figure leaning against a tree, one hand in his leather jacket pocket as he idly smokes.

"Did you recently get into trouble over a shawl?" Mordred asks his step-mother.

A little, cynical laugh.

"Saw the end results, you know. Bran storming in with all that weird Hunter shit going on. Very impressive. Looked like a prince for a moment, instead of a shepard."

Mordred just watches her, his golden eyes sharp and intent.

"Only thing I'll ever respect you for, you know. Getting my brother out of whole fucking mess," he continues, his soft voice just as conversational as before.

"Isn't that what I just said?"

Her step-son's lips twitst.


"No, not really. Of course, you weren't just about universally hated, either." Yes, Mordred had those loyal to him - he had the knack of it, the family charisma that came from Ygerna. But, to all others...

He can be cruel, Mordred Pendragon can be. Oh, yes, he can be cruel.

So, he says nothing. Just watches her. Just a boy, leaning against a tree, watching the woman who could have changed things, could have softened his father's heart, if only a little.

He can be cruel, and he knows when to say nothing. To just let the other's mind speak for him.

"Not as fucked up. Probably will live far longer, too."

Unspoken, I would have killed him, then.

"So, that's my startling revelation of the day. What's yours?"

There's that waiting, knowing, slightly mocking silence again.

Funny, how it comes on coming up.

His eyes narrow.

"Can't you manage something a little more fucking profound then that?." Mordred snaps.

Mordred rolls his eyes, bringing his cigarette back up.

"Well. Have friends here, and Galahad's even starting to smile more. Not that'd you care about the last, but he's a source of worry to me."

"Well, stepmother dear. Very well."

Mordred laughs, suddenly.

"You know, if you had married his father, you'd be his stepmother instead of mine."

"No point. Just...struck me as being amusing, that's all."

He watches her for a long moment, and then calls out,

"Why did you do it, Guinevere?"

Date: 2005-09-27 02:46 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"You're not. I'm just curious."

Mordred shrugs, pushing himself away from the tree with a warrior's grace.

"I love Galahad, Guinevere, because no matter what I throw at him, no matter what I do and say, he still loves me." A little, bitter smile.

"Ah. Perhaps I still see Arthur with a child's eyes, lady. I still cannot understand what you did."

He tilts his head back, and looks at the stars for a moment.

"Perhaps not."

Date: 2005-09-27 05:52 am (UTC)

"So you did."

He shakes his head.

"Perhaps I shall leave you to your contemplation, then."

Date: 2005-09-27 05:56 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]

"Same to you."

And, he vanishes.
