Devera has no idea what a Grey Warden is.

But she does get distracted by the all the skin.

Zevran greets the man. “Hernando.”

’Hernando’ raises an eyebrow. “Little Crow.” 

Zevran is not deterred. “Fetch Bea, would you please?”

Permalink

Hernando rolls his eyes, but swaggers off inside. A few minutes later, a human woman, wearing an abundance of coloured scarfs bustles outside. 

“Zevran! Here I thought you wouldn't darken my doorstep for a while,” Bea booms, looking like she very much wants to gather him into her arms.

“I’m afraid to say I’m here on business. This is...” he realises he never asked the girl her name. 

Permalink

She snaps back to paying attention.

"What?"

Permalink

“I never asked your name. I thought I should rectify that.” 

He points to the woman in the doorway. “Bea.” He points to himself. “Zevran.” 

He gestures to her with his hand, raising an eyebrow. 

Permalink

She points to herself.

"Devera."

Permalink

“Pleasure.”

He turns back to Bea. “Hunters from Tevinter are after her. Escaped slave. I figured you wouldn’t mind hiding her for a bit while I head them off?”

Permalink

Bea smiles beauitfically. “Of course not. Half the people here are escapees, one way or another. What’s one more! Come on, dear. We’ll get you cleaned up.” Bea bustles down the steps to wrap an arm around Devera.

She looks back at Zevran, wide eyed.

"You're leaving?"

Permalink

“Yes.”

He nods Bea back towards the door, and she winks saucily, before heading away to give them some privacy. 

Zevran steps in very close, stripping his gloves off and tucking them into his belt, one hand coming up to cup her face. “Sorry about this. Bea will assume you’re my lover, and that’s safer than the truth. I have to report back to the Crows, or they’ll think I deserted them. And then there won’t be anywhere in Thedas for us to hide.” 

He sees Bea leaning around the door out of the corner of his eye, and quickly presses a kiss to Devera’s temple. “I will be back for you. With an ally; she can help us with your demon problem.”

She takes his hands, holding on tight.

"I... you don't have to do this."

Permalink

“I know.” 

He brings their hands together, and kisses the backs of her palms. “I’ll be back. Bea will take care of you.” 

He starts to let go, moving back the way they came. 

Permalink

...

She stops him, pulls him down and kisses him.

Permalink

He goes back easily, letting go of her hands to cup her face. She tastes a little like blood. 

Permalink

It's nice. His hands feel rough on her face and she smiles into the kiss.

"Thank you," she whispers.

Permalink

Zevran laughs gently against her lips. “Don’t thank me just yet.” He presses a last kiss, and then steps away, pulling his mask over his face and disappearing back into the maze of alleyways. 

Permalink

....

She turns to look at the other woman.

Permalink

Bea smiles again, opening her arms wide. "Come on inside, cariño mío. We'll get you cleaned up. I can find Elezi, she still speaks some Tevene, if you find that language easier?"

Permalink

"I'm good with languages."

But she doesn't move towards her and instead looks down the street.

Permalink

Bea follows her line of sight. "Zevran will be back. He comes to visit at least once a month, and you seem very special to him." This is said very approvingly.

Permalink

"Oh."

He said he would be back. But. He didn't say when. She can feel Destruction pushing and testing at her self control. She doesn't have much time.

She could go back to her cage... find her master -- or what's left of her and... do something.

Permalink

Bea sees the girl straining, misinterprets, but her heart is in the right place. "Now, now, cariño mío, the city is a dangerous place to someone not used to it. You did well getting away from your hunters, but you mustn't go chasing after Zevran. The Crows do not like intruders."

Bea walks up to Devera, placing hands on her shoulders. "Come inside now, we'll get you a warm bath and some food. Maybe some sleep."

Permalink

She finches slightly at the contact, but otherwise does not react. She has control.

"I'm not hungry. But. Bath sounds good."

And then she'll be alone, hopefully. And time to think.

Permalink

“Come inside then,” Bea says, leading her into the brothel. 

There she directs one of the servants to run a bath in one of the suites, and leaves Devera in there, telling her to help herself to clothes in the closet. 

Once the bath is drawn, the servant leaves too, smiling at Devera.
