The Going Price | Hawke & Hound

—†—♞ } He knew quite well that it was unlikely to be just Ga, and it looked as though she was getting cσмƒσятαвℓє, so the Hound exhaled sharply as his eyes met the floor. This woman seemed hardened and, annoyingly, υηѕнαкєαвℓє.
         A man of his word? Well… he had an honesty about him.
                         He certainly liked to say things how they were.

                        ❝ I know the name.  ❞ 

        Sandor snarled, giving the material on his thigh a quick brush to rid it of dust. Sensing at least some kind of opportunity, that is to assist someone and perhaps get a reward for his efforts, Hound shifted his gaze to her countenance. 

                        ❝ Oh, did you want directions too?  ❞  

Marian lifted her brows as if to say ‘you do?’. Well, that was the first thing that had gone right all day. Which meant this was also probably going to be the highlight. What a surprise. 

She didn’t want directions, she needed them and she didn’t care who from. North was still north. Though - as it stood - she was determined to put distance between herself and that chilly quarter of the compass where Theon Greyjoy would soon find his captive in neither captivity nor that damn dress she’d never seen a man so pleased to get her into.

"Let’s be more specific." Reaching around a hip, she produced a stone that shone like a coal in the broadening shadows. The carving on its face so simple a child could have made it: and one had. Sandal. He could barely keep his soup in his mouth at the dinner table and still somehow turn around and make things like this. "I’ll pay you for any information that leads me to Garrett Hawke.

Sparks Fly | Richard & Marian

glowyapostate:

"I report, the chandelier is intact." Rick’s voice sounded a lot more mellow and good natured from its usual tone. The obvious effect of alcohol, but not enough to knock him out. On events like this, politely tipsy was his choice of state, two sips away from falling unconscious and/or trying to draw a mustache on a police officer was held exclusively for pub crawls.

During the course of the evening he went from smartly dressed and collected, to cargo shorts and a slightly open shirt, which probably revealed the obvious even more, that he needed time away from his job and probably spend a lot more time eating, but the doctor finally felt relaxed, probably to everyone’s relief. He crouched beside Marian before he slowly sat down in the sand, supporting himself with one hand behind him.

"Sandy had an amazing day it seems, and now he’s snoring passed out in the bouncy castle. I must congratulate you for the idea." he fell silent for a few seconds after that, just looking out into the waves with a content smile.

"It almost feels like we entered a parallel dimension. Everything and everyone is mostly the same, just small things changed… but those things seem really important all of a sudden. The peace that surrounds us, you, wearing a dress and… just look at Nate and Bela! But probably the most important part, you’re smiling!” For some reason most of this Rick shared in a half whispering tone, maybe he didn’t even want to disturb the tranquility of the place.

"We should do this more often. I might even buy a house around here, and live there in my retired days…"

Rick. Of course, Marian thought. Who else would pry themselves away from the pool and the wet bar to visit her? Though she could tell by his voice he had definitely been imbibing, no doubt at Bela’s urging. She liked Rick better drunk and it was easy to see why. His whole demeanor sort of…warmed. Like life wasn’t as stark and terrible as it looked from the hospital windows.

Making room for him to sit, she smiled again. “Every day is amazing for Sandy,” she reminisced. “We could all learn a lot from that little knothead. And thanks.” The level of the wine moved down an inch. “I told you not all my ideas are ‘reckless’. Just the last minute ones.”

She watched Rick watching the lake, his features lax instead of pinched in worry. When he spoke his voice was feather-soft: the same timbre Marian had heard him use with his younger patients. “If this is a parallel dimension I’m owed a pair of wings,” she murmured into another drink. May as well at least try and catch up. “The dress is for mother. I know she’s not here anymore but she would have liked me wearing one on my birthday.” Would have liked it even better if I wasn’t single again this year, she tacked on mentally. Not that she had any reason to hide such woes from Rick. He’d made it pretty clear the last forty-eight hours where his mind was circling.

"Retirement? Sounds like someone’s been doing a lot of planning his future. Shouldn’t Sir Pounce have a say in that?" she flicked her eyes up from the gap between his shirt buttons, carelessly undone. It suited him the way that third pint always did.

"What about tonight?"
