Location: In Wonderland, with X.xtHeMaRcHhArEx.X sipping on tea.
[align=center][color=darkred] Jervis was silent, eyes narrowed into small slits as he watched his cousin quietly, prying a bit of dried blood out from under his fingernails, patiently from his place at the oversized table... confident he was in everything he had once believed, until her sweet little confession surfaced, that she had been poisoning sweet old 'Unc for some time, instantly his breath hissed through his teeth like rattling bones, annoyed that the title... perhaps the honor had been stolen away from him, [b]"--Well ********] he added, defeated... little did he suspect before that they were more alike then he once assumed they were, both terribly mad... and terribly devious. The only mistake he made was suspecting he was the only one with enough cajones to kill off his own family... a mistake he would not readily make again... like accepting tea from... her. Quickly he turned, his calm and collected demeanor slipping into one of a defiant child, slender arms crossed over his narrow chest...and even while she continued to berate him, he shook his head gently... [b]"--Clean up? Clean cup? It doesn't matter..."[/b] he uttered off handedly while gripping the bridge of his nose, warding off a headache, [b]"--Queen's protection you know..."[/b] he stated rather matter of factly. Her sudden aggression spun him on his axis, lost for words as he struggled to fight her off, angry momentarily like a bitter child in tantrum fighting against a much stronger adult, fingers clutched about his cravat jerking him back hard against the edge of the table... clearly angry... seems dear cousin Jervis was annoyed with being the underdog... bullied, especially by a woman... [i]"--Let me go... damn you... s-stop..."[/i] his voice squeaked out, frantic under her grasp, but still she persisted clearly angry with him... and... Chesh... he struggled to recall why... until it was suddenly confessed, [b]"Let me tell you something, [i]cousin[/i]. The next time, you...and that feline menace wish to take joyrides in [i]my[/i] mines, I will personally see to it, I make you suffer much worse than dear, uncle, Horatio."[/b] and then something sunk in, and he smiled, as if the weakness crept back into the recess of his mind, and the cool and collected visage emerged, [b]"--Oh come now precious, don't be so melodramatic, all in good fun.... no one was hurt... severely..."[/b] he purred, tongue sliding over his teeth, eyes glimmering such a subtle shade of funeral grey. A laugh, and she would have launched him back, footing lost until he crashed into the edge of the table, jarring a few cups free from their perches on the table... scattering a few roaches free to scurry for safety. With a small groan, followed by another chuckle, he'd adjust his cravat, straighten his attire and speak up, [b]"--That's your problem dearest, you allow business to corrupt your fun, when was the last time you had tea at a non business function... and lets be honest... this isn't 'having tea' "[/b] he casually continued, [b]"--I may not have my priorities straight, or interest in the family 'business' but I won't waste this endless existence to endlessness..."[/b] in her defense, perhaps to change the conversation, this time it was his poison making... no surprise there, barely seemed to perturb him, [b]"--Poison isn't really my style love,"[/b] and if anyone knew Jervis, they'd know he was particularly fond of knives, his 'Queens' as he called them, 'Red' and 'White' for their obvious colors. Collapsing back in his former chair, legs crossed ankle over knee like a gentleman ought to do he continued, [b]"--Besides... that's why I leave the poison making up to dear..."[/b] CRASH, watching as the cups and pots shattered unceremoniously to the floor... [b]"--Marchy... really Cuz' is that necessary... your splashing tea all over my fine boots..."[/b] he sighed, tilting one side up and back to look them over... and even as she stormed off, barking at him to clean up the mess, he
