Would it be fair to say she's crossed his mind more than once the past couple days? Oh certainly. It would probably be best if he avoids her as much as possible....
But he doesn't. He finds himself seeking her out intentionally and more frequently than he probably should. In fact, he's on his way to find her as we speak.
Maybe he'll actually balls up enough to ask her first name for once, instead of the paltry conversations they've had up until now.
'It's a wonder she talks to me at all. I have to of made a complete idiot of myself by now', he thinks as he heads up the stairs to the wall.
She's on watch right now, according to the soldier he just talked to at the gate. He hopes that she's alone, not really knowing why it matters.
Only that maybe without an audience around she might be a little less difficult. Witnessing how she destroyed Oruo was enough to tell him all he needs to know on that score.
'She's got an attitude problem, that's plain to see. I have to admit though, I like it.'
He finds her immediately, leaning against the merlons and sipping a cup of tea. He can see that she's trembling, and causes her to jump when he puts his cloak over her shoulders.
"Can't handle the cold?" He asks "Why, do you want to snuggle with me?" She quips, turning to look out over the city.
"You're a bit of a smart ass aren't you?" She nods. "Emphasis on the ass."
Rolling his eyes he continues. "I'd like you to consider reassigning to the scouts." "Oh? And join you on one of your suicide missions?"
"Do you always talk like this to your superiors?" "Having rank over me doesn't make you superior."
'Oh, I like this one.' He thinks, formulating his next response. "Well my eyes are on you. You might be seeing a transfer soon regardless."
"JUST your eyes, Captain?"
"I'm only considering you for the super special squad at this point. Haven't decided if you've earned a spot on the naked squad yet. Sorry." He says with a smirk.
"Oh, well that's disappointing." "I'm definitely not against it though. What's your name?"
"You already know that." "Your first name please."
"My shift is over." Grinning, she begins to walk away, waving over her shoulder as she goes. He brushes past her relief, and moves to follow her.
"Aren't you going to return my cloak?" The door closes behind her.
