"We should talk," was all he'd said to Coyote in the bar, after a few aborted (and silent, aside from the stilted greetings) attempts at broaching a conversation. There wasn't a corner removed enough, though, and the idea of the rooms upstairs, well. They didn't have the most appropriate atmosphere.

"Come see my new place!" he'd said instead, with a little too much enthusiasm. So they'd strolled through the door, up the street, and into his new apartment building with Raguel in grim silence and Coyote apparently in relaxed spirits. Once inside, though, Raguel came partially back to life to play tour guide.

"Front door opens onto the living room, but I don't mind. Er. Got a new table. Black," he adds helpfully.

"Black is always a good color choice, I find. It is particularly underused in regards to interior decorating."

Coyote is looking around with an openly curious expression on her face. Unexplored territory, this is! Probably for him too, come to think of it.

"And have you managed to furnish anything but your living room?"

"Bachelor pad," Coyote says with marked amusement. "Somehow, my surprise is lacking. Will you even return often enough to make it dirty?"

She runs her fingers over a countertop idly.

"I have the distinct impression that the last place would have hard to beat."

Tell her she's wrong.

Coyote sets herself down on the couch and crosses her legs, swinging one foot idly.

"You did say you wished to talk. Interior decoration is not my usual topic of conversation, but if that is what you wish..."

What's up, Angel?

"I see." All becomes much clearer, actually. "I did see your note. I hope I can be forgiven for not replying swiftly? I have been busy. And unfortunately not with anything as pleasant as marriage."

Coyote ponders. "Were you jealous?"

From: [personal profile] howling_laugh
"Why?" she says, looking up at him. "We enjoy each other's company, certainly. We have spent pleasurable time together. But we see each other rarely enough. Things happen."

She doesn't look away.

"Tell me why."

Her look softens a little. "We are friends."

Pause.

"The 'wedding' was a surprise to everyone involved. Lilly Kane recited gibberish and dumped perfectly good whiskey over our hands. My unfinished business divorced us a few days later, citing it all as a distraction."

She doesn't mention that she and Epimetheus were in bed at the time.

"Did you truly wish to assure my happiness in holy matrimony, Raguel?" Coyote sounds half amused and half resigned.

"Most would have a very different reaction."

Wasn't he jealous? Goddammit.

"I would at least have had a properly raucous party had I planned it," she assures (?) him. There's a smile spreading across her face now, possibly because of the aforementioned break in control.

"Have you ever met Epimetheus?"

"I believe you would like him."

They both seem more sensible than herself, at least. Not very hard, but she doesn't admit that so often. (Good sex makes her much more accepting of her partners being better than her at something.)

"Mm," Coyote echoes. "You are not exploring any outdated idea of chivalry, are you?" Once again, torn between amusement and resignation. Because it would be kind of hot to have people fighting over her. But she wouldn't want them to actually damage each other.

"Duels for the heart of a fair maiden was more what I had in mind. You cannot really think I approve of courtly love."

Excuse the narration while it falls over laughing.






Okay, better now.

"Nnnno. He is not the overly aggressive type. You would both be very hard to kill, but I would not wish you injured, either."

She nudges his shin with the tips of her toes.

Coyote tosses her head, arranging her hair over one shoulder. "It is only that most of you play hard-to-get. Clearly, you are asking for trouble."
