Vincent adjusted his hat, trying to restore the proper shape to his beloved hat, glancing at the tall drow beside him.
"The punch to the face was unnecessary."
"I disagree. The punch to the face was entirely necessary."
"I think you are mistaken, Honglath. The punch was unnecessary and will prevent me from--!"
Honglath turned sharply, standing in front of him. "If you do not close your mouth now, Vincent, I will be forced to do much more than punch you in it."
"But that will make it even harder for--!"
Vincent stumbled back a step, bringing a hand to his mouth, feeling a second split in his lip, the blood dribbling down his chin. He watched his hat roll down a few of the stone steps and sighed, moving over it and picking it up, yet again trying to restore it to the proper shape.
"A warning." Honglath said in a too-quiet tone, standing beside him again, the two resuming their walk.
The moon elf, for once, held his tongue... barely.
As they exited the castle, Vincent glanced back at Honglath, smirking at the cuts he had managed to land on the drow's body. The two elves were told not to hurt one another in the sparring match - a trial to prove their skills - but things, as usual, grew personal quickly. Vincent did not hold it against Honglath - nor the mage to the fighter - but the well placed punches, cuts and small singe marks from the spells were all evidence of some minor frustrations they had with one another. Vincent finally replaced his hat on his head, angling it just so, and glanced back to his lover. "I'll remember this." He said, his tone soft.
"As shall I." Honglath said, the faintest of smiles playing across his lips.
Vincent nudged him lightly on the arm, a motion Honglath returned, as they left the castle...
Honglath (drow mage, on the right) and Vincent (moon elf fighter/assassin) just got done fighting a battle... fighting each other...
