”You really have a fixation on this contract don’t you? Do I need to remind you why it failed or you got all written in your memory you fucking dillweed?” You huff loudly when he calls you out for not finishing the job the last time. Of course you didn’t you were interrupted by him. What an ass to put the blame on you again and again. It’s clearly the only thing he has against you, because the rest is absolutely pristine.
And this was the only time you failed a contract, much to your dismay, it had to be this asshole who asked for it. He’s never gonna let you live it down isn’t he?
when he shoves his feet in your bath water, you are quick to frown at him. What the hell is he doing? If he wants a bath he can jump in, not just let his nasty feet get the warmth. You sigh at him and reach a hand to the bridge of your nose.
”I might not be staying here for too long either. I met a nice tyrian who’s interested in me and invited me to stay with him.”
You chuckle at her reaction to your little foot antics and slip into the bath fully, resting your arms back against the rim of the tub as you relax against the wall and sink in as far as you can before you touch her.
As soon as she mentions the tyrian, however, your smirk falls and your jaw goes slack. A sickly feeling blossoms in your chest and for a moment you’re not able to place the name of it. It’s jealousy. You’re immediately disgusted with yourself for feeling it and try to mentally force it away. You? Jealous? What a joke. What did you have to be jealous of? The fact that someone else is interested in Salace? That shouldn’t make you jealous.
And yet here you are, sunk down in the bathtub with her, unable to smile, that cold feeling blossoming through your chest. You sink farther down into the water, pulling your knees up and tilting your head to stare at the ceiling. ”Oh. Well cool,” you say, trying to sound casual and not give yourself away.
((Spun the wheel and it looks like Kelpie is answering this one.))
Well, I got multiple jobs, kinda. I mean technically I am in FCON first and foremost but hey, girl’s gotta make money right? So I run a little repair business on the side when I’m not deployed and stuff, y’know. I’m pretty damn good at workin’ my way around a gun so I figured yeah, let’s make some extra cheddar fixin’ up guns. One thing led to another and now I’m also kinda a wholesale ammo supplier. Trust me, man, if I had known how much business shit was involved, I might’ve thought better of it.
But like I said, FCON comes first. Ain’t gonna let these amazin’ gun skills go to waste.
1) What inspired your character?
A) What inspires you to be who you are?
E) What do you think one of your best traits is?
My intelligence, clearly. I am vastly superior to most of my racial counterparts, which makes me a valuable asset, to my kind, and our allies. Intelligence is a far greater weapon than strength. A strong being may be able to power through obstacles, but an intelligent being will always be able to create something stronger.
F) What do you think one of your worst traits is?
Oh, sweetheart, I do not have bad traits, let alone a worst.
C) What’s a pet peeve of yours when it comes to other people?
Oh my god dude, where do I even begin? Uhhh how about when people fuckin’ assume shit just based on like a passin’ glance or quick talk or whatever? Yeah that right there pisses me off like there’s no tomorrow. I could rant for hours on that, but you don’t wanna hear that, trust me. You know what else is annoyin’? When people don’t fill out forms right. Next form I get that ain’t filled out proper, I’m just tossin’ it in the trash.
You. Would not. Believe. How much paperwork garbage there is. In my line of work.
9) What is something you’d like to see happen to your character?
GOSH you know I am always up for watching her experience war and be emotionally scarred by the cruel nature of battle, while simultaneously proving to people that she is strong and capable and a valued member of whatever effort she applies herself to.
I’d also like to see her make more friends.
'Kicked puppy cute' is not a phrase I ever thought I would hear, haha.
