"No one is really an open book. Everyone has a secret or two."
The Lioness widened her eyes in surprise as the Snake at her side proceeded to answer all of the questions she posed. While she figured he would pick the best response that suited him it appeared he gleaned a little from each questions- each test of his character. “Alright.” Rose continued to walk backward, her forehead creasing in deep thought. “More questions. What about me is intriguing?” The slits of her wide doe eyes narrowed to study his face- the map of expression. “And have you seriously thought about me when you’re all liquored up? I find that—” Endearing. “—odd. Considering you’ve made very little effort to associate with me in the slightest.
“Again, to the most reasonable degree.”
”More? Haven’t I satisfied you enough?” A chuckle. Teasing but only partially. What was she to gain from questioning him further and further? Was she looking for a slip of sorts, one that shed light on a more malicious intent to speak with her? She wouldn’t find anything of the sort. “Sober thoughts, inebriated actions, you see. Under the influence, I like to believe the real truth comes out, irregardless of the consequences later.” A beat. “You intrigue me simply because you do — I have no one true explanation. If I did, it might settle my mind on nights when I can’t sleep. but I am without resolve.” Smart, snarky, headstrong, independent, gorgeous — The list, it seemed as though it never ended.
”Well, we’re both pretty weird then. It’s perfect.”
”Oh - ho. I’m not weird.”
“Definitely. I’m going to try to be more — not stupid about this.”
”Oddly enough — I like it.”
“I’ve never been so strangely turned on in my life.”
”That must be a good thing.”
”W-what? You’re gonna.. have to be more clear on that one.”
“The reason why you wake up frustrated every morning or night is due to your inability to… Finish, on your own.”
”I could help with that — allow you to live out your dreams.”
“Good. I’m glad that you’re all sorted out, yourself.”
“What? Still frustrated?”
“Oh… Merlin, okay.”
”Splendid. You know — I’m feeling much better.”
