RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
Strykárr's amused posture was forming up as he shifted his weight to his right foot, he filled his belly with laughter at the situation and a very confused Aisling, honestly his actions were currently on impulse, he had no idea what he was doing. Holding his hands in a defeated manner an idea came to the entertained Laoch. "I'll just...come in, an take ye' out o' there, an put ye' back? How 'bout that idea? Instead o' meetin' 'ere I canna just sneak ye' out from that place." He wasn't joking, he was honestly suggesting, his tone was serious enough amidst his mischief.

The son of Nemain took a step back and moved as if to let her pass with his clearance, his grin unflinching. He was curious about the woman, although he did not understand why. From the first moment he had laid his eyes a pone her fragile frame he had to do something. He did not know how she would cope with it all, or mostly with him. Although he had a good feeling about it. After all the scent of adrenaline from the sound of breaking into Manius' compound seemed sweet as ever.

RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
The ease and apparent entertainment of the Laoch only seemed to put Aisling more on edge, especially as he then suggested he break in to Manius' home and steal away with her, leaving her just a little speechless and unable to articulate just how much of a bad idea that would be. Manius would have a fit! And then the guard detail on her would increase and she would be lucky if she ever got out of the house let alone the Compound.

Still, the voices of the guards were nearing and she had to go, so the woman stepped past Strykarr, glancing back at him with the confusion still clear in her features. Why on earth was he so insistent? He didn't even know her name. Her attention was drawn away from the man though as her escorts caught sight of her.

As predicted, they were extremely unhappy with her momentary disappearance, even though she gave them an excuse of hiding herself away a little in case the dispute spread to them. They told her off. She should have told them, or asked them all to move on elsewhere. Didn't she realise that something could happen to her and then Manius would be furious? She had to be more responsible and not so rebellious. She nodded and then allowed them to escort her back to the Compound. It was going to be a very long day.

Once home, Aisling went to her quarters where she was able to at least get a little privacy as the guards stood outside the doors and below her balcony. She considered the chess board on the small table in her study area, but then sighed and flopped onto her stomach on the bed, where she ended up rolling onto her side and falling asleep for a time.

RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
Putting the stray of wheat back in his mouth Strykárr grinned for a reason unknown to him. His gut was sizzling, but not in the way it does after the consumption of tremendous amounts of alcohol. No. This was a different feeling, and it made Strykárr worry, might he be sick? Or perhaps a little nervous? He was definitely not in love. He cursed the day Danu ever decided to create that feeling, for certainly he would not be brought to such a level of nonsense. Trying to convince himself that he just had a special interest in the girl he went back to his daily business.

Later that day, Strykárr found himself wandering closer and closer to Clann Sea Dragan's compound in his free time, when he was finally released that evening to care for his own affairs he found himself wandering around the compound wearing nothing more then his axe and a simple tunic with a tightened leather vest, breeches and a dark green cloak. He put the hood on to dim his flaming hair in the dark, and scouted the perimeter.

He found it to be just like the Raven compound, it's guard mostly focused on the front entrance, weaker in the back. In that very back edge, Strykárr saw a window, managing a glimpse from a very certain angle he saw some fine furniture, silks, something white, he wasn't sure what it all was though, or who was actually in that room. The Balcony leading to that room however, was built like a gauntlet, made by two guards standing under it in opposite directions, making sure no one would just climb and reach up the window. There was but one flaw in the plan, they weren't expecting a Nemain Laoch were they?

Strykárr climbed quietly over the wall and sat on it peacefully, still not gaining the guards' attention. He got down onto the other side, sliding down gently. Taking out one of the many rocks he had in a leather bag he brought with him, the Laoch was prepared. He threw the rock at the head of the first guard, the before the second could react, Strykárr tackled him into the building behind so forcefully the air was knocked out from his lungs, he then slumped down to the ground unconscious.

Pulling a stray of hair behind his ear, a slightly panting Nemain smiled and stepped back a few steps, aiming for the window. Hopping with all his heart it wasn't Manius, he picked up a rock, kissed it gently, praying "Morrígan, Badb, Macha, Nemain and Danu, please don't let it be Manius." he flung the rock at the window, trying not to throw too hard, he wouldn't want to steal away an important Dragan AND break a window would he?

RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
Oddly enough, the woman's nap had left her feeling a little more tired than before she'd lay down. Typical, she thought, though at least she hadn't had the stress of that redhaired man trying to climb up to her window, which she'd almost thought he might do. The afternoon had passed into evening with no event and now Aisling sipped at some spiced brew while she let dinner settle in her stomach. Perhaps she should find a text to read, or maybe find someone who would indulge in a game of chess with her... or maybe she could go to bed early. That was also an option.

The woman jumped though when something smacked against the glass of her balcony window, and she turned in her chair to look in the direction. After a moment, she curiously stood and walked over to see what was there, noticing a rock resting on the balcony. She frowned slightly. Who would be tossing rocks? Opening the window, Aisling then looked around a moment before spotting the figure in the yard below her balcony and her eyes widened considerably.

"What are you doing?" Aisling almost shouted, but forced herself to keep her voice to a quiet hiss that she hoped was loud enough to hear. She looked over the balcony edge to see the two knocked out guards and suddenly felt very nauseous. This was not good, oh so not good. Her gaze turned back to Strykarr and she just stared for a moment as she tried to work out what on earth to do, before she quickly looked toward the door to her room, suddenly worried that the guards stationed outside it would hear anything going on. Taking a breath, she shook her head though and turned back to the Nemain, continuing to keep her voice low.

"You shouldn't be here!" The silver woman's tone was somewhat desperate. She didn't need some foolish man getting caught and probably killed by Manius' people because... well, she was still confused about his intentions to be honest. This just wasn't good though.

"O' course I shouldn't be 'ere, but 'ere I am! I told ye' I'd come tae' bring ye with me fer an hour or two hadn't I? Now climb down an I'll catch ye!" He told the woman, holdings his hands over his hips. He was really curious about her response, this whole event might cause some rebellious actions to plant seeds in her, rebellious seeds! He was content on finding out who this woman was and he was content on getting to know her. He seemed prepared too, having a horse waiting beyond the compound, a pack filled with things.

He made the same gesture for her to leave, just like he did in the alleyway earlier that day. "Come on, there isn't much time!" He hissed at her with his sly smile that said it all, and nothing at the same time.

RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
He was serious, he actually intended on taking her out of here? Was he a lunatic? Perhaps she shouldn't need to ask that question since he was also telling her to jump or climb down from the balcony. Like it was just something she did every day, which is wasn't. There was also the fact that she didn't know him except as someone who had pulled her aside at the market because he'd decided he wanted to know her. Did he think she was stupid enough to actually run off with a stranger to goodness knew where on her own? She wouldn't have a chance against him.

"What?? Are you insane? No! Go home! I'll not be the cause of problems between the Sea Dragan and the Raven!" Because just what she needed Manius to hear about was the Raven Laoch who snuck into his Compound, knocked out two of his guards, and stole away with his precious treasure. This was not going to go down well, and for some reason he just expected her to go along with it, "Go! You'll not get me down there!" With that, she stepped back into her room with a huff, feeling flustered and hoping that he listened to her.

RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
As she turned her back, she could hear the sound of shuffling grass and a thump, Strykárr was climbing up the balcony and with a silent thump he landed down on it. The Laoch was determined, he won't be flushed out as easily as that. Turning his head at her, his smiled faded. "Arrghh Aright, Look I ain't a lunatic or somethin', all I just want to know is who ye' are, alright? analysis! Ye' seem ta' be a caged woman, someone who's got more to her then ye' can see, closed up and shy, ye've got somethin' beautiful down there, that no one has ever seen yet, and I want to find out what, I wanna see the real...armm...you." He blushes again, "Gimme a chance aright? Come down with me, I'll understand if ye' turn me down again, but just try this once, I can promise a good time, some fun, and laughter. If Manius does catch up on it, I'll take the blame by sayin' I was tryin to rape ye. And ye'll play along. How's that soundin?" He asks ruefully, with a genuine smile stretching his face.

Taking a step backwards he eyes her, his face a mask, "There's more to ye' then ye' think or know." He remarked in a cryptic manner.

RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
Pausing just inside her room, Aisling turned to stare at the sounds from outside, before she saw the man actually climb onto her balcony. Her mouth dropped open as she gave him an incredulous look. Didn't he have any idea what in the name of Danu would happen if he was caught right now? What kind of reckless foolishness was this? And then he went on to analyse her, as though he could possibly know anything about her. The surprise faded, leaving her feeling flustered and just on the edge of irritated.

"What makes you think you would know what people have or have not seen of me? You don't even know my name!" Aisling had to keep reminding herself to keep her voice to a low hiss, but even so it was possible that eventually the guards outside her doors would hear something going on. Aisling wasn't exactly known for having conversations with herself, after all. "And I don't know you either, its ludicrous," She flinched at the thought of what would happen to someone who said they were trying to rape her.

"I know what there is and is not to me, thank you very much," The silver woman huffed indignantly before moving forward, and placing her hands on the man's chest, with some pressure, an attempt to push the man back toward the balcony by force, since he quite obviously either wasn't listening to her, or was purposely ignoring her, "Now leave here. You shouldn't bee in the Compound, let alone in my room. I won't call the guards on you, but I'm not going either, and that's final."

RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
The moment she put her hands on his chest, all trails of thought were cut short. Strykárr didn't really know what to say or how to react, he just held his mouth open as if to say something, but closed it soon after. He had to correct her though, "I'm making assumptions about ye' because ye' hadn't had the time to correct me, or tell me if I'm right, I want ye' ta' surprise me an tell me I'm wrong, and that I'll find out yer an incredible person, but those assumptions are based on yer behavior, or at least what I've seen so far." He sighed, he wasn't even moving, although Aisling's attempt, Strykárr was vastly larger. He admired her efforts though, she had spirit, he knew it. He chuckled at her statement at the fact she didn't know him, for once it was a humorless laugh, dry, quiet and a bit sad. It was true, for none actually knew what went on in the head of Strykárr of the Nemain.

Gently, Strykárr brought up his hands to cup hers inside his, a thought was crossing his head, he considered it, dangerous as it may be. His eyes, looking deeply into hers, were but a silent golden flame. His expressionless face left him unreadable for the moment as he was thinking. Ultimately he brought his hands up to his face, hers in it, murmuring a silent whisper to Danu. "Danu help me for my recklessness." He whispered, unintentionally loud enough for Aisling to hear.

Then, with a last sigh, he leaned forward and bent his knees and gently swooped the woman off her feet, and onto his shoulder. He held her up with one hand and started climbing down, muttering swears, cursing himself for his stupidity. But within just mere moments, they crossed the walls of the compound.

RE: The Bear and the Maiden Fair. [Aisling]
"Why do you want me to correct or agree or make you think I am incredible?" The man's rambling completely confused the woman, she didn't understand why he would want to know her when he'd only just started talking to her today... after what seemed to be a moment of viewing her at the tournament. "You've... just... turned up suddenly saying you want to know me, and then broken into my room after knocking out my guards. You don't know my name, or why I am important to Manius... just, somehow deciding that you're allowed to do these things, because you can?" The woman was still trying to move him but he wouldn't budge.

"Wha-..." Aisling froze a little as Strykarr picked up her hands and then held her face for a moment and she was silent as she stared at him, her mouth going dry as she wondered just what he planned to do. She remembered the kiss on the forehead from earlier in the day and her cheeks grew pink, wondering if maybe he actually was insane and might believe that she somehow belonged to him or something. Danu help him...?

The next thing she knew, Aisling found herself lifted up and over his shoulder as she made a squeak of protest. He was actually kidnapping her now??

"What are you doing?" The woman struggled, but the man's grip was strong as he made sure she didn't fall while he climbed down. She tried hitting his back and kicking her legs, but all to no avail as she continued to try and free herself. She couldn't believe he actually had the nerve to kidnap her, from Manius' home in the Sea Dragan Compound of all places! "Stop right now! Put me down!"
