"The prick laid with yer twin. Aye, I ken now....he shoulda suffered more..." Jamie muttered. He forced that away leading her to the loft above the horses where he had hs sparse items spread around.
[b "Maybe a bit of both...and I know that you wouldn't. Defended me when it came to both my sister and the prick...Sometimes it just still does sting."] She whispered as she was pulled into his arms.
The proclamation of love had been the thing to take her offguard. She knew they cared about the other..but had not known what his true feelings were. [b "I love you too.."] Finally she could at least say it..even if once.
And she stayed in his arms for a few moments, just taking him in. A faint smile came to her lips as she pulled back and looked up at him. [b "I believe you still have a loft to show me.."]
"That ye were a witch or that...prick...I'd neva do that to ye," Jamie pulled her into his arms. "I love ye."
For as many seconds he had done, a proclamation of love.
The sixteen year old gave a cold glare. She was not taking in what Jamie was saying. She was a hardheaded lass and would get what she wanted. And she wanted Jamie. Had ALWAYS wanted him.
"We will see who he chooses in the end. " She shot at Kelsey. Laoghaire then turned on Jamie. "Still I dina believe ye. She has ye under a spell." And she ran off.
[b "Bloody hell...and I thought girls in my time were obesessive.."] Kelsey muttered quietly, shaking her head. And she did gently touch one of Jamie's fists, giving a weak smile.
[b "I'm sorry...I know I should not have... there are things in my past and well Laoghaire made me think of that. But I get it now."]
"Kelsey is my intended, Lagohaire, not a witch. Dougal kens and wishes for a healer," Jamie turned to her. "And aye, mo maise (my beauty, from a restless youth before France."
The man's fists twitched in anger but he controlled it.
Laoghaire was hurt when Jamie had just brushed past her. She wasn't just a wee lass anymore. And she very near told him so before the other woman came up. Blue eyes looked between the two of them.
"So ye be with the witch?! Do yer uncles know?" She asked. Her mind was already working on a way to get rid of Kelsey and to get HER Jamie.
A witch. Why didn't that surprise her? Ah yes..because most the village around the castle believed that was what she was. [b "I...so she is a lovesick lass?"] Kelsey muttered to Jamie softly when he had explained it. Though she wasn't exactly sure she believed it at the moment.. Her past...well in this case future biting her in the ass.
Jamie stared at the girl with a confused look. "I neva kissed ye, lassie. Ye were a wee thing then..."
Hearing Kelsey he frowned, brushing past the girl. He didn't need to explain but didn't. "She came to the stables on her own, I didna touch her...or invite..."
Kelsey was not permitted to be sat by Jamie at dinner. She was to sit with Colum and Dougal at the "high table" as she had become the new healer. A "guest" as they claimed though she found it more as prison. But she could not speak against it and get Jamie into further trouble. Though she did watch him and the flirting lass.
After dinner, Laoghaire was waiting for Jamie and had stolen a kiss. She tried for another and was surprised when he had pushed her away. "Ye have never been like this before. Ye used to run off with me and steal hundreds of kisses...and surely ye wouldna turn down a lass who is offering herself to ye." The young woman said as she tried again.
Kelsey had been going that way to "go back to her chamber"...really meet Jamie and she froze, blue gaze on the two of them. [b "I'm terribly sorry. I seemed to have taken a wrong turn."] She muttered, backing up.
Jamie shouldered the burden of his secrets with heavy shoulders. He worked through dinner with Lagohaire sending food and admiring him. When he turned to the hay the young lass stood close and stole a kiss.
Jamie blinked in surprise, pushing her away after the second.
Her own eyes danced with their own sparkle at his words and the smirk. [b "I'll meet you tonight. I have to wait until most of the others have retired for the night and there is no sign of your uncle.."] She said, and got on her toes, pulling him into a kiss again.
As much fun as the sneaking around was.. She wished it did not have to be this way.
"Im na allowed too far in sight being wanted and all. If ye need me, the stable I shall be. There is a loft," he said with a smirk, a twinkle in his eye. Soon they wouldn't be...well, maybe.
It was so casual for him to be saying. But for some reason it help a interest to her. Not just because of the history..but something else seemed to "hit". Just she couldn't say it until she was sure.
[b "Now would stables include sneaking around?"] She asked with a sparkle in her eyes, deciding to push the topic aside for now
"I heard she had a bairn while we left. Dona believe it is her husband's," Jamie said casually thinking nothing of it. "She's clan Arnott, clan without a chief, husband wanders. Been with Angus as ye said 'off and on'."
He didn't know why that was interesting but said it anyway. "Aye, we will. In the stables."
She had been struggling with the name Angus. Knew she had heard and seen it befire. But right now it didn't seem to be clicking. [b "Oh so ye have something over his head then?"] She asked with a soft laugh.
The kiss to her neck made her let out a soft sound and a whine when he let her go. Bright eyes looked up at him. [b "Later..?"] She asked softly.
"Only if ye ken what ye look fer. Caught Angus with that kitchen maid, Margaret many a times," he said with a smirk. Kissing her neck he let her go hesitantly.
