A Thief and Assassin by Anilede A Thief and Assassin by Anilede
An expression of surprise overtook the Gerudo’s features for a moment as she witnessed Ovonre’s speed in the water. Compared to his walking speed on land, his quickness in the water was breathtaking. Even if his appearance was different than that of most, Ovonre was still a Zora, and water was where he thrived, and Aska never truly realized what exactly that meant.
It was true that she knew the dangers of walking alone with an assassin, and that she knew Ovonre’s strength far exceeded her own, but Aska’s intrigue was greater than the threat. Never had she been so interested in someone, and never had someone been so interested in her. The thief wondered just what it was about her that caught his attention. From his words, she knew beauty was one reason, but that had never lead a man outside a tavern with a thief such as herself. Attraction from beauty alone held no substance, at least as far as she learned from those men she pick pocketed. Not that a compliment to her beauty wasn't welcome, though. After all, the thief cared a lot about her looks.
A woman of skill.
His answer was what she was looking for, but it happened to spark more curiosity. She leaned a bit closer to him. “I know your skill; it’s remarkable. But I don’t fear you, either,” Aska responded. “Go ahead, then, I’ll answer anything you want.”
Ovonre could only grin at first, showing his sharp row of teeth. That grin faded into just a smirk as his head tentacles wriggled a little with excitement. He'd never spent time with a woman that was evenly matched in banter. Normally he did most of the talking and flirting, whether the recipient was willing or not.
"Per'aps you should be. After all, many a foe, man and creature, 'ave met their end by my 'and. Many, by the strength of my legs alone. Mos' people run at the sight of me." he responded, leaning closer to Aska's face, so much that they were just a few inches apart. His dark eyes were fierce, yet full of intrigue and a hint of desire. "Neither of us 'ave 'ad any drink tonight, yet 'ere we are, together again with free will. If I asked to kiss you, to taste your lips without the taint of wine, 'ow would you respond?"
Even after his ominous response, Aska smirked at the question he chose to ask. She should have known it would be along those lines from how their previous meeting had went. Truthfully, the mention of his legs killing people did shock the thief and strike for a moment, but the question he asked fell in line with the other gentlemanly behaviours he displayed this night. That was one reason why she didn't fear him as much as others; if he wanted to hurt her, he could have done so by now. Her smirk faded as she pondered her response.
"If you asked, I'd say..." Aska paused. True, the wine may have influenced her decision to kiss him in tavern, but it wasn't the reason she started flirting with him in the first place, and it wasn't why she was with him tonight. Ovonre made a fair point.
"If you want to..." she started, voice lowered, yet pausing once more. The corner of her mouth upturned after a moment; she liked making him wait for the response.
"...Then what are you waiting for?"
"Jes' waiting for your consent."

Eeeeeee~! :giggle: Okay, so :iconsaphirinne: and I have been working on a followup RP to one we did a few years ago where our OCs met in a tavern and when this moment happened I could not resist! :D Besides, after some drama lately surrounding character theft of Ovonre, I decided I wasn't going to let that stop me from working with him anyways. Ovonre is very important to me, just as all of my OCs are. Each and every one of them is a part of myself. This piece was definitely something I needed to do and it was very refreshing. And I freaking love these two together hehe

Enjoy!! :heart:

I understand. And like I said, it's okay, you apologized. I'm not going to hold it over your head or anything haha! ;P I just strongly dislike those kinds of jokes especially directed at my OCs. We have different tastes in humor is all. :)
