    Tarty party

    Post by Curtana on 15/05/12, 08:48 am

    Even with his spiffy new clothes, Aleyn felt under-dressed compared to most of the people at this party, who seemed to have gone all out for the occasion. Maybe by not being covered in illusionary bubbles or wearing a live songbird on his lapel he would be able to blend into the background... it might make their job easier, anyway. Even though they had planned it out as thoroughly in advance as they could, he was still nervous about the mission - bluffing wasn't his strong suit.

    Still, it was an impressive gathering, and he tried to relax a little and enjoy it before they had to go. Mostly that meant sipping a glass of some bubbly pink liquid that was probably extremely well-disguised alcohol and watching the crowds go about their business, although he did get lured into dancing a couple of times with people he had never met. After escaping from the most persistent of these, he scanned the crowd, hoping to spot a friend.

    Kallista may not have been the most subtle person in the world. She may not have been able to beat a dragon to death with her fists or sling fireballs around a battlefield. Truth be told, she may not even have been a very good cook. But if there was one thing she DID know it was parties, and if there were two things she knew it was parties and flirting.

    Tonight she was completely in her element.

    She seemed to glide effortlessly around the grand affair, slipping seemlessly into conversations with a well placed giggle or a bat of her eyelashes. Even the cultural differences and between her and her Athrennarian acquaintances seemed miniscule and humorous as her natural charm and magnetism came bubbling to the surface.

    Eventually, after hours of dancing and making conversation and one short but memorable make-out session with a particularly handsome eladrin, she reminded herself that they were here for a reason, and that it was just about time to act.

    She wove through the crowd gracefully, her tight black and red dress seeming almost tame in comparison to the plethora of outlandish outfits around her. Eventually she spotted Aleyn near one of the food tables, looking slightly lost. She made her way up behind him and put one hand on his shoulder.

    "Well hello there, handsome..." she purred, "Come here often?"

    "Not often, no," said Aleyn with a hint of a smile, turning to Kallista. It was probably getting close to the time when they should start putting their plan into action, he guessed. "You ought to try the pink stuff, it's delicious."

    "I was about to say the exact same thing to you." Kallista said, and Aleyn got the distinct impression that they might be talking about two very different things.

    She reached for a glass of the bubbly pink liquid, brushing up close to Aleyn as she did so. Her eyes scanned the room and fell on several couples openly making out, and perhaps more than that, in one corner.

    "Quite a party, isn't it?", she said taking a sip of her drink.

    "Very... lively," he agreed, following her gaze, which led him to some sights that widened his eyes (though perhaps not his horizons.) "It's been a while since I've been somewhere quite so, ah, exciting."

    "Sounds like you could use a little excitement." Kallista said. As she spoke, her hand fell lightly on the small of Aleyn's back, her fingernails scratching against the spot where his shirt disappeared into his slacks.

    "Or maybe a lot of excitement."

    OK. Just pretending. He could do this.

    He turned back to Kallista, meeting her eyes. "You're probably right. It's been a while," he told her, which was true at least. He ran his left hand through her short red hair, stroking his thumb over the point of one of her horns. "Did I mention you look gorgeous tonight?"

    "No, you didn't..." Kallista said with devilish grin as her hand moved lower, "But if you play your cards right you'll have plenty of chances to."

    She threw back the rest of her fizzy drink and set down the glass, placing her now free hand on Aleyn's hip so she could look up into his eyes. She was tall in her own right, but Aleyn virtually towered over her as she pressed herself against him.

    Aleyn took a quick step back, landing up against a pillar. He wasn't really trying to get away, just momentarily startled by Kallista's... efficiency. His drink was still half-full, which seemed like it needed dealing with - he tossed it back, though he had nowhere to put the now-empty glass. "You're very persuasive," he told her. "I should warn you, I'll probably be out of practice." Like close to fifteen years out of practice as far as women were concerned, not that it had gone that well then either. Lila would laugh herself stupid if she could see him like this, trying to pretend he was enjoying having a pretty young woman wrapped halfway around him.

    Kallista advanced on Aleyn again as he pulled away slightly, keeping herself close to him. She was having entirely too much fun watching him squirm, and she judged that she must be playing her part well.

    "I'm betting you can make up for that with enthusiasm. Besides, it's just like dancing. Once you learn the steps all you need is a good partner to remind you how the movements go."

    "She leaned even closer in to him and put her lips up to his ear.

    "And trust me..." she said quietly, "I'm very. Very. Good."

    As she pulled back she decided to take a small amount of pity on the poor man and shot him a sly wink, hopefully assuring him that she remembered this was still just a mission.

    Aleyn curled one arm around her waist, keeping her pinned close to him. "I'm sure you are," he told her with a grin, bending down slightly to kiss her neck, just below her ear. "Is this OK?" he whispered, not entirely sure how far she was expecting to take this charade before they made their escape to the upper floor.

    Kallista closed her eyes and exhaled slowly as Aleyn's lips touched the sensitive skin of her neck.

    "Mmmm... you have no idea..." she whispered. Just because it was an act, didn't mean she wasn't going to enjoy it as much as she could while she had the chance.

    When he pulled away from her neck she reached one hand up to his face, running her fingers over his freshly shaven face, guiding it down towards her as she pressed her lips to his passionately.

    Aleyn's eyes flew open but he managed to keep from rudely jerking away from Kallista, even as he was getting much more familiar with her tongue than he had expected to ever be. She was a sweet girl, and it did feel sort of pleasant, if odd, and he missed having his arms around someone, even if she wasn't the one he wanted... Pretending, he emphasized to the part of his brain that was becoming mildly confused.

    After a moment, Kallista pulled away again and grinned. Aleyn kissed pretty well for someone who was "Out of Practice", although she couldn't help wondering if his thoughts might have been straying to a certain freckled half-elf at the time.

    She glanced over at the couples rutting in the corner and bit her lip before turning back to Aleyn.

    "Let's go somewhere more private..." she purred.

    Across the room, Vedran set down his suddenly empty glass, reminding himself that what he saw over there was acting (very convincing acting), that they were on a mission, and that if he was an idiot (and he might well be), this was not the time to dwell on the fact, or on how good a kisser Aleyn ways, or Kallista likely was as well...

    "Is everything alright?"

    He turned back to is conversation partner with an easy-seeming smile. "Oh, just looking around for another tray of that pink stuff! Any idea what's in it, or do I want to know?"

    Still a little dazed and lost in distracted thoughts of the most recent time he'd kissed someone, Aleyn forced himself back to the present. "Upstairs?" he suggested with what he hoped was a suitably hungry smile, keeping his eyes on Kallista.

    "Upstairs." she replied with a hungry look. She draped her arms lightly around his neck and then suddenly hopped up into his arms with a girlish giggle, relying on him to catch her.

    Aleyn hooked a hand under each of her thighs, barely hanging on, laughing a little at how ridiculous they must look. Thankfully with her arms wrapped around his neck she was doing half the work of holding herself up, or he was pretty sure he'd never have been able to manage it. "Hold on," he told her with a grin, readjusting his grip so that it was centered more under her ass. He was still extremely doubtful about his ability to get her up a flight of stairs like this, but he'd take her as far as he could, anyway.

    Kallista laughed to see Aleyn struggle slightly with the added weight. As he walked towards the stairs, albeit a bit awkwardly, she leaned into him and nibbled gently on his ear, her long nails moving lightly over the skin on the back of his neck.

    Aleyn made it to the base of the stairs with less than his usual grace, but he made it. There he set Kallista down on the first step, so that she was just about his equal in height, but kept his arms around her. "Almost there," he told her playfully.

    Kallista giggled as he set her down, pulling him close for a quick kiss before taking him by the hands and leading him upstairs.

    "C'mon, lover-boy", she said with a grin, "I can't wait for the real party to start..."

    Aleyn followed her up the stairs obediently, but couldn't resist giving her a light slap on the ass as she walked ahead of him, mostly because he thought it would amuse Kallista, and the sound of her squeal might cover the laughter that was becoming more difficult to control. He just hoped they could make it to the library before dissolving entirely into giggles...

    Aleyn was not dissapointed by Kallista's squeal of amusement as the two stumbled up the stairs. Finally, after much stumbling and awkward groping they arrived at the door to the library and Kallista opened the door quickly, falling on the floor in a pile of laughter as Aleyn shut it behind them.

    "Oh... hahahaha... oh gods..." she blurted out, not even noticing Roscoe standing behind her with a confused look on his face, "Hehehe! You should have seen your face!"

    Aleyn was breathless with laughter too, wiping his eyes with the back of his hand. "That was... way more entertaining than it should have been," he managed, leaning on a table to try and compose himself before the others arrived. "If this adventuring thing doesn't work out, maybe you can take up a career as an actress," he joked.

    Kallista rolled up into a sitting position, still catching her breathe from laughing so hard.

    "Hehe! Acting Schmacting!" she said with a wink, "You know you loved it!"

    She hopped up to her feet.

    "Now come'ere and give me another kiss!" she said, arms extended and making exaggerated fish lips at him.
