Aly couldn't help the grin and small laugh at his moaning. "Of course. You can't expect me to give it all away without any effort can you? Some things you do actually have to work for, Caspian.
, she told him with a hint of playful teasing thrown in for effect. "Hmm...sharing is caring indeed. I am sure plenty of girls would be more than willing to share with you. Why should I?"
She wasn't above making a man work for anything she was willing to give, most just didn't have the backbone to deal with her so she didn't really bother with men past what she could use them for, if and when she was so inclined to do so.
She scoffed at his warning about locking her door even as she rolled onto her side so she could look at him without straining her neck. "Ha! You're the only perv in this entire building crazy or foolish enough to barge into my room without knocking."
, she told him with a roll of her eyes. "So if you're looking to catch a glimpse of something without permission, just remember I know how to blind you in at least 5 different ways.
, she warned him, with a sweet smile and a flutter of long lashes that were about as innocent as a dragon was docile. It was all bluff of course as she would no sooner hurt him than she would herself. Well...not unless he actually deserved it, but even he wasn't that crazy.
She gave him a bored look. "I care not for the hour you meddlesome pest. I meant that you are long overdue in visiting me. I've not seen you in what seems like forever. Though I suppose you can be forgiven, as I assume you have been as busy as I have been."
In response to his threat of not letting her sleep she gave him a bit of a sly smile and lifted a brow at him. "Is that so now? And dare I ask what happens if I decide to go to sleep anyway?"
She really didn't have to ask, she was sure he would ensure she stayed awake in some way shape or form. She would probably want to murder him for it, or smack him...one or the other. She gave it a moments thought then decided she could forgo the sleep to spend time with him. She really had missed bantering back and forth with him and he always managed to drag her out of any sour mood she might be in. Definitely a missed quality, though she was getting better at keeping her temper in check. Most days.
She rolled her eyes at him again then gave him a devilish look. "You've no idea, though I will not disagree. You are indeed audacious.
She watched him as he flopped down on her bed and stretched out beside her. She resettled herself a bit one he was comfortable, hazel eyes narrowing on his slightly at his comment of fleas. She shrieked when he grabbed her and pulled her to him for a tight hug. "Lanchester! I will hex you into next month if you've brought fleas in here!"
She highly doubted it was fleas and she ended up laughing regardless, even as she attempted to wriggle away from him. "You are a vile creature, you know that, don't you? Vile!"
She managed to elbow him solidly, though without any true malice behind it, something he was likely used to after years of putting up with her."No, not at all, and even if I had planned on going to sleep, I'd make time for you. Haven't I always?"
, she told him with a slight smile as she leaned on him a bit. Her smile faltered slightly however, then vanished completely as her arm and hand started itching. She turned a murderous gaze on him for a fraction of a moment before she realized she recognized the type of itch. It wasn't a spot, like a bug bite, it was all up and down the arm closest to him, leaning on him. She frowned at him slightly then leaned over and sniffed at his shirt. She jerked away from him and gave him a serious shove but burst out laughing, even though he had in fact made her itch, just not with fleas. The smell was faint, but it was there and fairly distinct, or it was for her anyway. He, however, probably had the sense of smell of a tree root."You idiot! Who did you piss off now?!
, she asked between fits of laughter. She rolled away from him and got off her bed in one graceful motion. She went to her trunk and rummaged about, chuckling softly as soft clinking could be heard. When she stood back up and closed her trunk she had a small white jar in her hands. She opened it and scooped out a small amount of the contents, covered it again before tossing it at Caspian. "Take your shirt off, it's covered in itching powder, or I am fairly certain it is itching powder anyway. Lucky for you it's a weak batch or you wouldn't be able to go two seconds without itching."
, she told him as she worked the ointment into her skin where she itched. "How do you not know itching powder after all these years? Do you ever pay attention in class?"
, she teased him, knowing full well that she was the studying one, not him. It was also her family business to know these kinds of things. Use that, you don't need a lot though. It should help with the immediate itching, I highly suggest a hot bath and sending all your clothes to be washed. Soon."
She was likely going to need to change her own clothes and possibly her bedding. "How much do I like you again?"
, she asked playfully and sat back down on the foot of the bed, watching him, amusement clear in her eyes.Caspian Lanchester
