She is NOT LISTENING LA LA LA she is getting this robe off and tugging on her dress and sticking a boob in this baby's face. This... prevents the baby from crying which makes it harder to be NOT LISTENING but it's good in its own right.

"What if I want her," he says to his guard.

       "I would expect, your grace, that that might affect a court's determination of the likelihood she'd commit similar crimes again. Though it would not change the need to accept punishment for these ones."

"Mmhmm."

Okay maybe she's listening a little. "- your grace?"

Permalink

"Little bit of a mess you caused, here. I don't particularly want to tell them to take that baby away, though I can't change the law any more than you can. If you don't care to have me involved then I won't be."

Permalink

"She's mine. She's mine and I want her."

Permalink

"Will your household take her?"

Permalink

"I thought they were going to but they took her away and gave her to the temple as soon as I fell asleep."

Permalink

"So then you need a household that will take her to get to keep her."

Permalink

"Well now I do."

Permalink

"What were you planning to do before, if you'd escaped with her?"

Permalink

"I was going to see if Desert Rose'd take me on. Even though I probably wouldn't be healed enough to do full service for a few weeks."

Permalink

"And what's your plan now?"

Permalink

"...kinda don't have one your grace."

Permalink

"The plan that we were discussing would be that you join my household. Then she could, too. This doesn't necessarily mean you don't face punishment for the crimes you committed retrieving her, though."

Permalink

"- how would I -?"

Permalink

"Do you think you could stay out of trouble in the future, if no one takes the baby?"

Permalink

"I wasn't in trouble before... uh, before conceiving her... I think so?"

Permalink

"Then I think we can make it work." He stands up. "Let them know that the baby's been found, and the person responsible for the parcels," he says, "and then tell them they have to go through palace security for more." 

And to Rabiah, "I can't take you as a wife, under the circumstances, right, but I can say you're mine, and the baby."

Permalink

"Yes your grace, thank you."

Permalink

"And we'll see how many of the legal problems that solves."

He squeezes her arm.

"I don't have any money for fines. ...that I didn't take from my dad."

Permalink

"I have a lot of money. Should I perhaps also have a full list of all of the crime that's been done here."

Permalink

"I think we covered it all. Uh. I was alone with a guy about nine months ago. And this morning I took some silver out of my dad's petty cash and took that robe out of the temple laundry and... littered... in the temple and took my baby and ran. ...and my name isn't Jamila. And I took the paint from my sister but I don't think she would be mad?"
