Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
Date: 3rd of Einmandur | 1722 ATA
Time of Day: Late morning
Weather: Mild, a little windy
Location: Jarl of Vanaland's home
---

"Now where could my little Eydís be?" The mother crept around the room, pretending that she couldn't for a moment hear the cheeky muffled giggling that was coming from beneath the table as she 'searched' for her daughter who was soon coming on two years old. A warmth shone in the woman's eyes while she looked behind curtains and moved to the next room only momentarily before returning and sighing, placing her hands on her hips. "What a tricksy girl, hiding from me like this," Again with the giggling, but she ignored it in favour of continuing the game a little longer.

It was a quiet day at the home of the Jarl of Vanaland and his family. Their son, Brynjarr, was taking some lessons currently with his tutor, which left the mother to chase his little sister around around the home for a little while in order to wear the girl out so that she would nap for some time in the afternoon, allowing for the woman to take some time to go over some business with her husband if he was home from hunting by then, or train a little.

Walking closer to the hiding girl, Linnéa strolled past the table, her fine hearing catching the sound of scuffling headed toward her while her back was to the child, right before hearing a shout of, "Got you!" as she felt her legs tackled by the toddler who'd launched herself at the mother from behind. Playing along, the woman dropped to the ground as though she'd been attacked by a bear, rolling onto her back as her daughter climbed over top of her, giggling and trying to trap the clearly much larger person under her, "Got you, Mama!"

"Oh no! I've been caught unaware~!" The woman dropped her head back onto the floor, before feigning death. She lay still for a few moments while the girl laughed at having won, though soon enough she became curious of why her mother wasn't moving and shifted closer, leaning over her face as though to check if she was awake. That was when mother struck back.

"I have you now, you little demon hunter!" Linnéa grinned as she grabbed onto the little girl and began tickling her; Eydís' shrieking and laughing echoing through probably the entire house as the pair rolled around on the floor playing... at least until there was a loud clearing of one's throat at the door and a guard gave a small bow.

"I apologise for interrupting, Lady, but there is a visitor just arrived," The man spoke simply but politely and Linnéa sat up, though still holding her daughter, pulling her into her lap.

"Oh? Who?"

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
As Linnéa inquired as to who it was that was visiting, footsteps could be heard in the doorway behind where the guard stood, rather heavy footsteps that were always a familiar sound to the Lady who had been married to the Jarl of Vanaland for almost two decades. The door opened moments later as little Brynjarr, an Aesir of five years old, came running in and for his mother as Tryggve came into view right behind his son.

For a male of middle age, Tryggve had aged well and remained as strong as the day his wife had met him. His eyes noticed the guard for moment, having heard him speaking to Linnéa when the Jarl was heading into the room where his daughter was playing hide-and-seek with her mother. The giggles of his daughter made him smile as the Vanalander approached his wife, kissing her lips gently before picking up his daughter with a big smile. "There be my princess!" He kisses her cheek many times, making little girl of two years old squeal and fidget. "Daddy's beard tickles, Mama!!" Tryggve laughs happily before setting his daughter down.

With his usual greetings given to his family and wife, the Jarl turned to the guard. His ears had caught word of a visitor arriving at the Jarl's estate and was curious about who was to be visiting. Tryggve glances at the door, then guard. He gives a simple wave. "Go let our visitor in. Let us see what this is about."

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
"OI! WHERE YAH BE!" The thunderous laughing tone was one that was likely familiar to the pair if they had met him before from the manor gate. As the visiotr was let in he and his company of thirty made their way to clean their boots and set aside as Aleksander stepped up and brushed off the dust that came from their journey up from the base of the city and up to the keep of the Jarl of Vanaland.

"Oh, he'll be seein' me now? Grand thing that." He spoke with a wolfish grin akin to that of his kind. He walked with the gait of a sailor, his vessels marked upon the docks below and the personal Aesir Galley he owned currently being maintained for any wear she received on her trip from Cels. Provided he was escorted to the general sitting quarters and not the kitchen, he stood about till the pair were ready for him.

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
The woman heard the footsteps, but her eyes first alighted on the son that ran into the room and straight fo her, a smile brightening her features as she opened her arms to accept her young man into the same hug she gave his sister, giving them both a kiss on the forehead each. She then released him as she stood, ruffling his blonde hair and holding his sister on her hip as she aimed a warm smile toward her husband while he entereed and made headway straight to her.

Linnéa returned the kiss fondly before handing their daughter over to her father and laughing at their antics a moment. Her attention, however returned to the guard and she was about to ask that their guest be sent in, but for the fact that suddenly at around the same time, her husband made the request, and a loud booming voice could be heard from outside, causing the woman to blink before a sly smile tugged at her lips.

"Indeed, allow Aleksander in and see he's made comfortable," The guard nodded and Linnéa's attention returned to her husband as their children began to play a chasing game, "How was this morning's hunt, my love?" She asked with a smile before leaning over for another kiss, lingering a little. She gave him a fox-like grin before taking his arm and began to walk them through toward the sitting quarters where their guest would be led, "Its been some time since Aleksander has graced us with his presence, I wonder how things fare in the south." The woman mused lightly as they walked. Once they reached the room where the other man waited, she smiled slyly.

"And to what do we owe this pleasure, hmm?" Linnéa asked Alek with a tilt of her head.

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
The booming laugh came moments after Tryggve permitted the visitor to enter. Only one such person had such a laugh that could be heard throughout the Vanalands. His eyes watched as little Eydís runs away, being chased by her older brother. The Jarl smiles lightly before his ears caught the words of his wife. He gently touched her arms as they shared yet another kiss that lingered longer than the first. Tryggve smiled lightly before speaking. "The hunt was quite fine, managed to get a nice fox actually. A good pelt that will be made into a fine coat for little Eydís. Her old one is already being outgrown." He sighs contently before walking with Linnéa to meet with Aleksandr, their visitor, leaving a nanny to watch the children while they were away. "It has indeed been quite a long time since Aleksandr visited. Feels like ages. I hope the South has been as good to him as the Vanaland will ever be."

Two guards opened the doorway to the sitting room where Tryggve walked in with his wife. Elsewhere, the Captain of the Household Guard for the Jarl of the Vanalands approached Aleksandr and his group, requesting that they follow him to meet with the Jarl and his wife. A few members joined the Captain as they escorted the Aesir into the sitting room where Tryggve stood with his wife. He remained silent for now, allowing his wife to speak first.

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
"Pleasure's been usually the reason I be returning to this place, also company as well!" He grinned, giving a sardonic but respectful bow as the two entered. Truly, aside Ingolf they were the only others he would respect. By that same stride....

He gave a mental sigh. Two of them at least liked to try and recruit him when they got the chance for their own groups. Not to be saying the offers weren't pretty as a mountain of Silver Marks! "You happen tah' hear from the Hovding lady out east? If noh', well I'm seein' about gatherin' us up for a bit of a competition of sorts, with our Aflanders brothers." Gettin' straight to the point, he grinned. "an' whom better might be tha' Jarl of Vanaland and his wit-sharp wife?" He gestured with a hand, resting it by his hand on the elbow.

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
"Children will grow, my love," Linnéa patted her husband's arm with her free hand lightly, a small smile just for him on her lips before they entered the sitting room and the company of their old friend and ally down in Cels. She did find herself interested in what could be occurring down there; and what could be made to occur as well. There was that series of islands just north of the mainland after all.

"Its always good to see you again as well, Aleksander," The woman smiled broadly and laughed lightly at the bow, though gave him credit for it still, the man being the kind that he was. Her head tilted and she gave a glance toward her husband at Alek's first question before shaking her head lightly, "I've not heard from her, no."

His next announcement caught her interest though and Linnéa's brows rose as she considered what the man might mean in regard to 'competition', as there were so many meanings behind the word (behind any words that a clever person used, really), but she grinned fox-like as he continued before chuckling and making a 'hmm' sound quietly while she glanced to her husband again for the moment as she considered the other man's words.

"I'd personally be interested to know more of what you speak, Alek," Linnéa replied simply as she looked back to him before gesturing to the chairs, "But, please, sit. We'll have drinks brought out."

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
Tryggve saw the great Vanalander enter the sitting room with his usual pomp and hype. It was hard to not smile at such a person like Aleksandr. As he began to speak and inquire about a certain Hovding female, the Jarl noticed his wife's gaze and nodded in agreement with her statement.

However, the following statement sounded intriguing and Tryggve noticed his wife was interested as well, noticing her eyebrow raise. The moment Linnéa's gaze once more turned to him with intrigue within her very eyes, Tryggve knew there was no way out of this one. As the party sat down, the Jarl sat next to his wife as drinks were brought out. He looks at Aleksandr to inquire the world beyond the Vanalands. "Tell me Aleksandr, how is the world beyond our homeland of Vanaland? With the war over and the Iron King's grip ever so consolidated, peace seems to have settled and quiet is everywhere it seems."

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
Picking one of the wider chairs he sits down with a rough thump and rests his hands clasped idly in about his chest height, leaning forward. "I'll speak of the world, then i'll speak of tha' plans. Yah' be seeing much as I have in most respects-since our king there had been sending us south, the effect of us lot uniting them up is starting tah' fracture again. for us, it bespeaks opportunity a dozen, though i need to sit on my keep an' not make too much a trouble to be revoking up Utanstead before it can be making it's proper appearance in the future." He thought about it. "Sea Dragan still wants any blood other then it's own out of the Ice Sea's waters, Swann's making mends to the border and relations with us Norlanders. There's a enterprising lot of Jotunlanders down in the southeast mining up some high quality metal in Kernow, and the coill's still ruffling with them ravens butchering each other up fer' lack of rivals 'r opponents. Which brings me to a few little, mmh, call them stories." He leaned back now, spreading his hands.

"In the near future, I be suspecting the Sea Dragans are going to be causing a right few incidents from rogue elements of their navy to be burning and smoking up the western isles of Mannan, making it seem al like a braze action of a Tairn or some such. In retur, Heron's gonna be kidnapping Sea Dragans to be compensatin' for their damage. Now likely so this'll heat things up to begin with, and Heron as we all know don't pull punches against those invadin' their lands. Should start a nice little fight down in the south, pulling away their land power.

"Now," He lifts a hand, as if examining things. "If things should be getting right messy there, it's only my job to be keeping the peace of Cathaire, being ah' bi-citizen and all, and sending off my fleet to be seeing to the problem. I find things have gone too awry, and send for assistance to be scattering up and dividing the attentions of the Heron, sending a missive to you." He looked at them. "Wit' me so far upon this tale?"

RE: Intents and Purposes [Tryggve & Aleksander]
Listening with great interest to the news of their neighbours down South, Linnéa couldn't help but smirk a little at the idea of the Sidhe folk beginning to turn their attention on themselves once more. There was some interest in the fact that one of the Clanns was working with Aesir though, and lack of surprise at Sea Dragan's usual attitude. As the drinks were brought out, Linnéa poured a few cups and then passed one to her husband, before picking one up herself and sitting back to listen to the rest of Alek's 'stories'.

"Well, yes, of course you would want to help to keep the peace; and we know that there has been bad blood between the Heron and Sea Dragan for some time," Linnéa's eyes lit slightly as she already began to grasp onto what Aleksander was thinking or planning. It was an opening for an opportuniy to take care of a group that had been a spot of bother -- freeing up those islands for whoever might gain better use from them.

The woman's lips tugged upward at the corners as a sly smile slid across her features and she patted her husband's leg lightly with her hand as she looked to him with the slightly wicked expression.

"Of course, Aleksander can rely on us to help him out in such a situation, isn't the right, my dear?" Glancing back at the other man, Linnéa tilted her head slightly, "You are one of our own, after all. If you feel you should require some assistance, we could hardly say no, even in lending aid to our neighbours in the South." She brought her cup to her lips to take a drink as she considered the story a little more. This could be a decent opportunity to gain some extra ground in the Ice Sea, or to get in deeper with the Fae people.

"So I take it, there have already been some incidents occurring, which is why you predict these happenings?" The woman questioned as the wheels in her head spun around quickly, processing any information she could gain.
