PostSubject: After A Year of Separation (Tag:Soma)    Thu Aug 07, 2014 12:50 am

The royal apartments were lavish containing all the members of the royal family and their top most important guests. the castle brimming with members of multiple houses at such an event it was a wonder how the castle staff managed, though some houses of course had brought their own servants and guards who were spread out in lower areas. Akhesa, Princess of Dorne and Daughter of Arianne Martell was paired up in the rooms that adjoined to her brother. It was lovely in her opinion but no where near the beauty of the palace in Dorne, she missed the smells of spices and incense on the wind it was one of the few things she did miss on her little excursion to Essos. The main thing she missed however was her beloved elder brother, though probably not as much as he had missed her she guessed for Akhesa was the much more independent of the two siblings while she liked the attention of many people she could and often did withdraw to private chambers. Which is what she had done once she and her brother had returned for their gay frolicking amongst the common folk with other nobles they had roped into the experience. But she was not yet tired, she bathed and changed her clothes soon wearing little more then a large tunic that barely covered her as she lounged upon the cushions of a lounging chair in her room.

She had little interest in moving for her legs ached from her dancing, having no servants around to attend her now having dismissed them after her bath she simply lay thinking back on today it had been a good day, but she soon had a feeling of deep dread when her thoughts turned to how much of a talking to she was going to get when she returned home. Even her mother who was used to the antics of her and her brother was probably going to scold her for being so dangerous as to disappear for a year doing the gods know what. She was sure her reputation had taken a hit no matter what lies had been spun to cover up her disappearance. But she cared little for that anyways as her title allowed for much leeway in most things and she never bothered with the more selfish ladder climbers.

To set her mind at ease she bang to sing a soft sweet melody which echo'd in the halls of her room. Only to have it interrupted by the meowing of a lovely feline who sat now at the foot of the couch. Akhesa smiled, the feline friend being a companion she had picked up in Essos as a kitten it was given to her as a gift. The one who gave it to her she would never reveal but the feline was her treasure and the only companion she had allowed in her times of solitude. Though she doubted it would be just the two of them for much longer for she knew one things very well... her brother despised being alone for any period of time. Sitting up as she picked up the feline and let the cat rest upon her lap idly petting the soon purring beauty.

After taking a long hot soothing bath, Soma was attended to by the servants and was dressed in his silk gold tunic. Oh how loved to wear silk to bed. It felt so comforting. He then proceeded to stretch, his limbs ached from all the dancing that he had done today at the coronation and the after coronation event that he boldly helped his sister with. It had been such a wonderful day with the Queen being crowned and the joyous dancing that happened earlier on the streets. He wondered for a bit if he should sent word to his mother, asking her if she could persuade grandfather to allow him to visit longer. The eldest Prince was all for visiting more around King's landing and encapturing the hearts and bodies of those he wanted to conquer.

Soma sighed softly as he sat down by the window in his adjoined room with his sister, glancing out of it down at the city below. He smiled a bit fondly at the memories of the earlier recent dances that he and his sister were involved with, with the common folk. He hadn't the much quite fun in awhile with his sister, due to her one year disappearance. And it seemed their their little fun among the streets really uplifted a few of the nobles that had followed them to the fun. They actually had the luck to hear his sister's lovely voice as well. Hopefully Soma would be able to hear more of her singing voice as well.

His blazing molten gold eyes quickly flitted over to the door that connected his room to his sister's room at the sound of singing. His soft smile slowly turned into an adoring smile at this. Although it slightly faltered at hearing it come to a stop. Soma pouted a bit at this, not liking to whatever interrupted his sister. He waited for probably a few seconds before getting up and strolling over to the door, opening it, and entering his sister's room without knocking. He was very impatient like a child when he wanted something or to see someone. Why should he spend alone in his room when his sister was right there in the other room adjoined with his. That would be absolute torture for him since his little pet peeve about being alone for periods of time. His eyes gleamed a bit in distaste to see a feline in the arms of his sister, feeling a bit jealous of it. But he quickly flashed his sister an adoring smile, his eyes glittering with delight at the sight of his sister. "Very cruel, dear sister. To be in the company of a feline, rather than the company of your dear brother." He tilted his head to the side before striding over toward the lounging chair. He reached out, caressing one of the long strands of her hair in a loving manner. "You know how I get when I'm alone for some time." he chuckled softly, not at all embarrassed by his childish fault. Soma knew that he was a spoiled young prince who required the attention of others.

Akhesa did not gasp or scream or move to cover herself at her brothers intrusion into her bedchambers, for she had not only expected it but she planned for it as she smirked upon seeing him waiting patiently while he moved to her noticing the jealous look in his eyes. When he tried to chastise her for taking the company of the feline she countered quickly "Forgive me brother but I thought you said you did not reside in you own beds anymore? how could you expect me to wait for your company?" ruthlessly teasing him for his childishness, but she allowed him to touch her and even leaned into the touch a soft look in her eyes "Yes... I know very well, but you shall have to unfortunately forgive me for now you are not the only love in my life dear brother" chuckling and she gathered the feline from her lap into he arms "This is Shiera... I brought her home all the way from Essos, you shall have to share me with her from now on. I will not have you be petty over a feline" moving the cat to her shoulders as the lovely creature purred nuzzling in it's mistresses hair. Akhesa's tone softened from her chastising to sweetness as she offered her hand to him "Come now... she will have my shoulders but you may have my lap dear brother.... I have no doubt that you will wish to stay in my apartments tonight, scared I shall disappear again?"

Soma blinked a bit at his sister's counter, chewing his bottom lip a bit before pouting once again. "That is true. But I wanted to spend tonight with my dear sister who's been away from me for a year," He re-countered, crossing his arms over his chest. He could've easily invited their young male servant from earlier from the coronation to his bedroom, but decided against it due to his sister's appearance in King's landing. But Soma still kept the invitation of the servant in the corner of his mind for another time.

He then patted his chest where his heart was in a dramatic way, at his sister's claim about him not being her only love anymore. "That hurts, dear sister. But alas..I shall surrender to such a claim to still be in your company," Soma remarked in a fake somber tone, winking at his sister in a playful manner after saying such. The idea of sharing his sister with a feline didn't sit well with the Prince, but his sister did so ever seemed to love the animal. So he relented and diminished his jealousy for now. His eyes soften as she held out her hand, nodding his head to her claim of him being scared that she'd disappear once again. It was true. He did not wish for that to happen once again. Soma had really kept to himself in a state of depression at the news of his sister disappearing. He really had worried about her, cursing his grandfather for scaring off his sister. But the returned to his old self at finally getting the message from his sister through a messenger that she was safe and alright.

The Prince sat down onto the couch, before getting in a laying position on his stomach and wrapped his arms around the torso of his sister. While resting his head in her lap at the same time, hugging his sister close to him. Soma knew that he was acting like such a spoiled child, but it was who he was. And nothing was going to change that. If they allow such an act then Soma always that doing something like this was okay. So it was only their fault for allowing his childish behavior.

His comment hit home and she froze, the worry in her eyes showing wondering if he truly hated her in some way for leaving him, in truth she did it with no warning but she knew if she had said something to him he never would have let her go. In that way her brother's spoiled behavior bothered her, but his heart at least would be in the right place and no doubt she would have been able to convince him but that would have taken time she didnt have back then. Then he simply went to being dramatic and Akhesa relaxed glad to see him in such tom foolery.

It was only when he nodded to her comment she truly softened and cooed to him sweetly "Shhh... it is okay dear brother... I am here now, and I promise I will not leave you if I can help it" whispering that little promise sweetly to him as she let him wrap around her. He was such a spoiled boy too sweet, too innocent in many ways full of dreams and desires. Akhesa had wanted him to grow up for years herself but his sweet face had charmed her like it had many others. It was in moments like this though she was reminded how much he really needed her around. Why she could never allow the wrong kind of paramour near him for she knew the woman for Soma would have to be as gentle as the mother but stern like the warrior when it came to handling Soma not to mention she had to make sure that it would not be a woman to manipulate her brother. She had no true prayers other then one day he would find such a woman and take her for paramour or wife.

Running her fingers through his long hair she smirked "look at this mop... I shall have to cut your hair sweet brother lest the castle mistakes you for a girl" teasing lightly though she leaned down kissing the top of his head. though that made Shiera give a mew of protest at being moved, she simply cowed the protest by scratching the feline under its chin causing it to purr again. A sound that soothed Akhesa but she knew exactly the sound that soothed her brother, her voice. Taking a deep breath she sighed softly and while she pet her brothers head she closed her eyes and let her voice ring out sweetly.

"The Father’s face is stern and strong,
he sits and judges right from wrong.
He weighs our lives, the short and long,
and loves the little children~

The Mother gives the gift of life,
and watches over every wife.
Her gentle smile ends all strife,
and she loves her little children~"

"Truly promise, dear sister?" Soma murmured softly against her tunic in a childish tone, smiling a bit. His sister was one of the people who allowed his childish manner. There were times when he questioned to why he was actually the eldest, but nevertheless Soma was the eldest son of Arienne Martell. Even though he was the head of the Martell House, marriage still seemed to be off in the distance in his future. Hopefully he'd be lucky and find a paramour who'd allow and adore his childish manners like this. His sister and mother seem to have no dislike for it. But that was probably due to his charm and his sweet face which he used to his advantage with others as well. It was to his advantage in sexual and fighting ways. It was most obvious in the sexual way, by using his sweet face and charms to sweep his partners off their feet. While he used his sweet face to fool his opponents believing that such a sweet prince could lift a finger to do anything, which was truly untrue. Soma was an excellent fighter, almost exceeding his deceased uncle Oberyn Martell's skills. This really surprised his opponents, giving Soma a sense of pure delight at their surprise and shock.

He sighed softly in content as he felt his sister's fingers ran through his hair, chuckling softly at her comment. "I shall not allow that sweet sister. My long hair is one of my favorite traits of myself," he remarked in an amused tone. "Besides it's really adored by the lovely gentlemen and ladies," he added in a teasing manner, smirking. His hair really awed alot of his lovers due to the length and color. He smiled softly as he felt her kiss the top of his head. Soma tensed up as the cat mewed in protest, but then relaxed immediately at the sound of his sister's sing voice. "Your voice is still as lovely as ever, dear sister." She was truly a talented singer and ballad writer. He was truly amazed by her creativity and imagination with her ballads as well.

"Yes my brother.... I promise" she speaks softly pausing her song as she smirked opening her eyes again to look upon her brothers sweet face "then I shall braid and weave flowers into it and called you my older sister lest you let me trim it and brush it your servants are clumsy fools who do not know how to take care of you" she would do it too whether or not they were in public, there was one true advantage to being her brother's keeper for times such as this when she lightly pulled the strings. A darker minded woman would play her brother like a harp, but Akhesa was too kind and loved her brother too much to ever risk him in the game of thrones.Taking another breath as her thoughts took over she sang.

"The Warrior stands before the foe,
protecting us where e’er we go.
With sword and shield and spear and bow,
he guards the little children.

The Crone is very wise and old,
and sees our fates as they unfold.
She lifts her lamp of shining gold
to lead the little children."


With the crowning of a new queen though there was some fear in her, for no doubt a new game was starting already the players and pawns were being cast in their roles. Did she dare dip into such infested waters for the chance to make sure her family remained secure? she did not know but oh how she wished all the rest of the world would melt away to leave nothing but the safety of Dorne for her brother. How much had he changed in the year she had been gone? did he know of the game yet? her voice wavered slightly.

"The Smith, he labors day and night,
to put the world of men to right.
With hammer, plow, and fire bright,
he builds for little children.

The Maiden dances through the sky,
she lives in every lover’s sigh.
Her smiles teach the birds to fly,
and gives dreams to little children.


Her breath caught in her throat and she took a moment to compose herself from everything. She could not let him know her fears, she had to be the shield for her brother to protect him while she was here. No matter what she would get she would have to make sure they returned home as soon as possible lest the spiders and whispers around this castle try to entangle her brother. She would have none of it, for the Martell's had nothing but bad history in King's Landing. But she feared the unknown of it all. So she did one thing that no one ever truly did... she gave her song, her voice over to the one god who knew the answers. The one god no one dared sing for, but she did so because it was her way to lend her voice to the completion of a song and just because people feared this aspect of their god did not mean it did not deserve to be sung to.

"The Stranger's way is to the end,
to hide what is behind each bend.
Fear that which it does impend,
it calls for little children~"


Ending her song, simply putting her arm gently around her brother to hold him tighter. Her petting stops slowly as she rests her hand on his head.

Soma blinked in surprise at his sister's comment and threat about his head, pouting at this. "Oh dear sister, that would be truly humiliating. The ladies would never come around me again if they ever saw my hair braided and flowers weaved in it. They'd be oh so jealous," he chuckled softly, glancing up at his sister with entertained filled eyes. "But I shall relent and let you trim it..just a bit," he sighed softly, being the kind of brother with a very soft spot for his sister. Even though he was the older of the two, he always acted like the youngest of the two. With the exception when he was angered by something. Why would he even want to act like the eldest? It was no fun. Especially with the thought of marriages would befall on him by his Grandfather whenever the old man wanted his eldest to wed finally.

He furrowed his eyebrows a bit as he heard his sister's voice waver a bit. Was something bothering his dear sister. The idea of that really worried him quite a much. He tilted his head up a bit more to get a better view of Akhesa, casting a worried glance up upon her. There were times to which he could know what his sister was thinking of. If he had that kind of power then Soma would've stopped her from leaving that time. As the song came to an end, he felt his sister put her arm gently around him and hugged him tighter. This really did worry him. "Dear sister, what is troubling you? And do not try to side track me away from this question," Soma asked in a soft tone which quickly turned a bit sterner as he warned her to not side sway him from his question. Her lovely voice never wavered unless something or someone was troubling his younger sister. His blazing molten gold eyes filled with concerned settled upon his sisters face, watching it carefully to search for any sign of answer to his question.

Akhesa smiled weakly at her brothers comments resting her voice after her song simply keeping her brother in her arms where she knew he was the safest. Then came the hesitation as he brother asked her the dreaded question that she looked into his eyes. The molten gold meeting the frozen sea as two eyes stared so different from one another yet so much alike. A little joke of her own that they were fire and ice when paired together. running her fingers through his hair as she took a small breath taking a moment to collect are her thoughts before gently letting him go as she gently banished the feline from her shoulders to rest somewhere else while she spoke to her brother.

".... Dear brother... please do not ask me such things, you are too gentle for my thoughts. simple know that I do love you and all I do I for you my brother. After all though we are years apart you are still my LITTLE brother" teasing him a bit there at the end with a smirk "you must tell me how your year has been, tell me what did you think of the crowning the queen? what did you notice?" such simple questions so they seemed but she tested her young brother to see him and wonder how truly naive did he believe everything. Did he see with his eyes of burning passion the same she saw?

Soma instantly knew that something was indeed troubling his sister as her frozen sea eyes met his eyes. They were very much different but so alike at the same time. They were of course the children of Arienne Martell, so like mother, like children. His little sister had even came up with the joke that they were fire and ice. Soma truly adored that characterization of the Martell siblings. As he continued to watch his sister, Soma had hoped that it was nothing that troubled his sister, but alas that was untrue. The young prince leaned up to her touch, smiling a bit at this. Then she let out a soft sigh, while letting him go and shooing away the feline away from them, leaving the two siblings purely alone.

He huffed a bit as sister asked not to ask her of such things, claiming that he was too gentle for her thoughts. "I may seem gentle most of the time, doesn't mean that I'm not fierce," he countered with a small frown which slowly turned to a small smile at her teasing at the end. "Oh? Trying to be sly aren't you?" he chuckled lightly, rolling his eyes playfully at her teasing of him being like a little brother. As she turned the conversation onto the queen, Soma thought about what he thought of the crowing. "My year at first was a bit bumpy after you left, but it got better as I got messages from you. Going after many challenges and conquering over them," Soma smirked darkly as he thought of those who were conquered and not conquered yet. Hopefully they'd finally succumb to him one day. He sighed softly before adding, "I saw a beautiful passionate queen such as Queen Daenerys. But I do see a hard road for her due to a few houses disapproving of the Targaryen rule again." Cato Bolton seemed like a prime example, but Soma did not speak of him. He tilted his head once again at his sister as he unwrapped his arms from her and sat up. "Don't think I have not forgotten about my question of what's troubling you. Now relent and speak now of it." Soma demanded in a moderate tone.

Akhesa waited and listened as she let her brother go on about the things finding some worries unfounded but others sharpened. Taking a moment to think before she made a decision and stood up leaving her brothers eyes to stand before him looking at him "..... very well, I shall tell you what I think dear brother but you will never repeat these words to anyone else for your saftey and mine own.... you will swear to me this" taking a moments breath before she continue those eyes flowing and gentle as the sea normally were cold and frozen "I did not see a queen being crowned... I saw a new piece on a board" illustrating this she moved over still snagging a board from the shelf and setting it on the table before her brother. Opening it revealing the Cyvasse board, it was old and worn this was because it was a gift passed from their mother to Akhesa since her mother had never used it before it originally belonged to their grandfather.

Akhesa loved this game and in her spare time practiced it over and over again, now she picked up the dragon piece and set it on the board "The rules of the game changed, a new dragon takes a place of the old and no one knows truely where they stand anymore.... With the old queen the players knew all the rules, could play their game now Marina Targaryen first of her name takes the throne. The game has changed, old players will be disposed of and new players begin...." lifting up the king piece "Everyone thinks the person wishing to be king is the player, but they are merely the pawn.... even you... even me...." setting it down next to the dragon "A king is not the most powerful piece on the board, the dragon is.... Marina Targaryen is the tipping point of all new strategies and plans, what she allows will be gospel... what she disproves will be sin"

Those ice blue eyes focused on the board and she picked up the second dragon "But... there is always more then one dragon...." setting the white dragon next to the black "With no heirs to her name Marina must rely on her family of bastards and outcast dragons.... it leaves her weak prone to attack. The family that forges the fastest alliance with the Targaryen house most likely through marriage will have the most power. All the people down there every head of house that is unmarried or has unmarried heirs will vey for the chance to have their sons up for approval. I did not see a celebration dear brother... I saw a bloodbath about to begin." poignantly taking her hands and knocking all pieces off the board.

Soma watched as his sister stood up, disconnecting her gaze from his eyes. He breathe in deeply before sighing out softly as he braved himself for whatever his sister said. "I shall not speak these words to anyone. I swear." After he said this, Soma noticed that his sister's gentle eyes were now cold and frozen. Causing him to immediately tense at this scene. He'd never really seen her eyes like this. It was pretty much surprising and shocking. And it overall scared him a bit due to him being so used to his sister with the loving and gentle eyes. He tried to ignore his tension to continue listening to her, quirking an eyebrow at her remark of the queen. "A new piece on the board?..." he murmured under his breath, furrowing his eyebrows at such a representation. There couldn't be another game of thrones event happening once again. Didn't others know of what was lost due to such war and selfishness to gain a single throne to rule the kingdoms? He swallowed lightly as he watched as his sister had brought out a Cyvasse board, tilting his head at it.

Soma listened to his sister as she spoke of the royals and Marina Targaryen as pieces of a Cyvasse board. he felt a bit embarrassed to not be as knowledgeable about the Game of thrones as his sister was. He never did once give the throne a thought, keeping his time busy with seducing any male or woman that took his interest. His sister seemed to be the same with seducing, but it also seemed that she had really paid more attention to things like the Game of Thrones and politics around them, unlike her brother. He winkled his nose a bit at the fact of a bloodbath happening due to the Queen and her sister being still unmarried. "You speak of both the hands of the Queen and her sister?" Soma asked in a low tone, feeling some sympathy for them to be hounded by the other heads, who were single, for marriage. He was really quite thankful that his Grandfather had not tried to arrange any marriages for him. So far his life was pretty good, but the eldest prince stayed silent for a moment, thinking about what his sister said. It slowly dawned upon him, that due to the new Queen, Soma's life might not be the same due to other houses believing that he was a danger to them. Which was due to Targaryens and Martells having marriages to each other way back in history. He scowled a bit at this sudden realization, shaking his head. "I will be no pawn to this game." Soma remarked quickly in a blunt tone.

"You will.... that is your place in life, you are a first born son" she remarked and never so coldly and so bluntly had Akhesa ever spoken to her brother never had her warm flowing gaze been so cold to chill bone "I will do my best to protect you dear brother.... but you wished to know my true thoughts, and now you have. Where you see joy and song I see plots and blood. The tension between the boltons and starks was merely the tip of the sword that shall carve this kingdom. Do you want to know why I left? why in the middle of the night I ran from Dorne, from everything I knew as fast as I could?.... I shall tell you." her eyes focused and she stepped up to him "Grandfather called me late at night, I was at his side and he whispered words to me.... 'The game of thrones is starting again and I am old' he said that in such tone I speak to you now along with a request that had me fleeing from everything 'you must play in my stead' he said.... and I ran, I ran faster then I have ever run in my life. I would still be in Essos if you were not my brother and I did not love you so" she admitted finally picking up the king from the floor and holding it out to her brother "So tell me, Soma Prince of Dorne first of his name and one of many king pieces in this game.... are you happy knowing what troubles me so? as you are my elder brother and I do so love you, you could command me to do as you wish. You can forget everything I have said and go back to the world of fantasy where there is fine wine and women not to mention men... and I shall take care of you dear brother, as I have always done"

Soma grimaced deeply, feeling a bit chilled by his sister's tone and gaze. She was really being serious. This didn't sit well with him much. "I am the first born son. But that doesn't mean that I won't refuse any marriage proposals or plans that is thrown at me." he clearly stated with a fierce gaze. Dorne was enough for the Martell House; his grandfather should know that by now. He had already lost much to the Game of Thrones games before. Did he really wish to lose more for this one? It was ridiculous. “I did wish to know your true thoughts. I understand that.” He sighed softly as he glanced down at his hands in his lap. There were times that Soma would suspect of plots among the other houses, but he’d ignore them due to not being involved with such manner. He kept to his wine and harem to get away from politics and the real life of a first born son.  Luckily for him, his mother and grandfather allowed him to escape from such into his imagination and world of fantasy.

He flinched a bit as his sister stepped up to him, not being used to her cold gaze. His eyes then widened at the reason of to why his dear sister had left Dorne for Essos. His sister in his place in the Game of Thrones really frightened him. He did not wish for that to happen ever. “I wished that you had told me this, Akhesa.” He grimaced, lifting his gaze up to his sister who had held out the king piece to him. Soma stared at the piece for what seemed a century for the Prince before he reached out and took the piece in his hand. “I’m truly happy that you have told me.” He responded, capturing his sister’s eyes with his gaze. Before looking away as he added in a low tone, “But angered and saddened that you’d keep such a secret from me. And frightened by it as well.”

The king piece in his hand was rolled around a bit in his hand, before being clenched tightly by it. “Why should I forget what you said? It isn’t right to leave you and be selfish by going back to my fantasy world…I really wished I had known sooner so I could’ve been by your side…and try not to leave you in this game alone.” He murmured softly, glancing back down with a saddened expression. He was the eldest brother. These duties were to come before upon him. Not onto his younger sister. Soma couldn’t keep up the charade of him being safe with this game of thrones happening up again.

"I am second born brother... it is our duty to take the jobs the eldest's do not want or have not the talent for" she said and with that her look her tone and everything softened "you are not ready, not able to play and your role has already been cast. It was chosen the moment you were born unto this world, as was mine the second I was born female. If grandfather could have everything go his way, you would be King Soma.... but he and I know better then to cast your piece too far from home. And the queen learned from Daenarys, it is unlikely she will marry soon or at all" Taking her place at his side as she moved to lay her hand upon his back ".... I am sorry I did not tell you, but you were not ready and in truth I never believed you would be. But like all things tough to do to the ones you love, it must be quick and clean. But you must promise me Soma.... do not give up being the sweet brother I love, do not stick you feet in treacherous waters. Simply live with you eyes unclouded so that when I miss a piece, you can catch it. Play the role of the fool and men shall think your sweet face your only merit, but your eyes and ear shall remain open to all they say and do. If you wish to give me piece of mind, do this for me."

Nodding her head at that before she ran her fingers along his back in a soothing gesture... comforting him as she always had and the flowing see returned to her eyes. Her tides had changed and she wrapped her arms around him "If you wish I shall sing you to sleep tonight, then you may help me charm a princess into my bed" her tone suddenly turning playful as she chuckled "if you do not plan to take up residence there yourself"

Soma knew of the tradition of second borns’ taking on the jobs of the first born, but disliked it very much. He didn’t have much for the Martell traditions, just pushing them aside most of the time. But now it was really involving his sister. “I am not ready. Nor do I want to play such a horrible game that cost others their lives and families.” He murmured, grimacing deeply, feeling his tension diminished slowly at the sound of his sister’s voice returning back to normal. He being a king seemed to be such an unwanted nightmare to the Prince of Dorne. He didn’t want such a title and the responsibility. It was neither his nor his sister’s fault that their grandfather had failed in gaining the throne for the Martell House. That had been his problem. Not theirs.

He glanced over at his sister who moved to her place by his side and laid her hand upon his back. Soma then shook his head. “Even if I wasn’t ready to hear this, doesn’t mean that you were to keep such things from me.” He murmured lowly, chewing on the bottom of his lip. It hurt him that his sister who he thought that told him everything and who he confided in, had kept secrets from him. Even if she did have good reasons for doing so. He took in a deep breath before breathing out slowly, then glancing to the side at his sister. “I shall still be your sweet brother…just a bit more aware now due to what you have spoken to me of.” He was not going to set foot into anyone’s pathway of trying to gain the important spot by the Queen. Like his sister said, he’d keep playing his flirtatious role, fooling others with his sweet face. Luring them from the idea of him being a threat. Which was true. But that could not be said about his grandfather who’d probably try to use him as a pawn. “So I shall indeed promise you.” He remarked, giving his sister one of his sweet, warm smiles. He leaned to the side, resting his head upon his sister’s shoulders, enjoying the soothing gesture upon his back. “I would enjoy that very much,” he responded, nodding to her suggestion of singing him to sleep. Soma then nuzzled his sister’s shoulder affectionately with his head at her playful comment. “I shall help you. And what harm will be done being in your bed?” he teased softly, closing his eyes with a flutter.

Akhesa let him talk she had revealed much to him this day, she had cast him into the freezing waters of her knowledge glad he had come out mostly unscathed brought her great relief though her heart was heavier for doing such a thing to her sweet brother, in her own way she had done to him what she had done to many others, claimed his innocence. Perhaps it was a perversion of hers that permeated through even her care for her brother, that thought troubled her a little. But she said not a word just let him speak until he was done "No more harm will befall you brother... especially not in my bed" she then added teasing him as her free hand lightly scratched along his chest as she whispered wickedly into his ear "Unless you want it to" ah such naughty things she said to him. Though they had never and would never be together other then through familial bonding it was still always so fun to tease him with the possibility. Afterall on one night after many tears were shed on a night of heartbreak in the arms of her brother she did claim he would be the only one she ever loved from that day on. It was a childish gesture but still she had never kept consort or paramour simply having a flock now and then she picked from. Like a sampler of fine wines.

Gently leading him to her bed she pulled back the sheets and slipped unto the bed first still holding unto his hand as she smirked "Come now... what kind of song do you want?"

Soma chuckled softly, opening his eyes to reveal them filled with amusement and humor at his sister's teasing. "Such a loving sister yet such a teaser," he winked playfully at his sister, bringing up his hand, sweeping it across her cheek. As much as they teased one another, they have never slept together like that. It was just how they were, with being so close to one another cause of them being related. Besides it was fun to tease others, chuckling at them thinking that the Martell sibilings were very much like that. But Soma was always quick to reprimand of such an idea, not wanting them to taint their sibling bond. The Prince wasn't sure if him or his dear sister were ever to actually have one lover. They were very much prone to having multiple lovers, having their delighted fun. Although marriage might be an obstacle in the future for both which did worry the eldest prince very much.

He stood up, letting his sister lead him over to her bed, watching as she pulled back the sheets and slipping into the bed. Soma smiled softly as she still kept a hold of her hand, nodding before he slipped into the bed with her. "A lovely soothing song would be quite nice," he murmured softly, his molten gold eyes were soft upon his younger sister.

Those lovely eyes of haunting blue stared back as warm and soft as he had known them for many years, a far cry from the ice he had seen in them earlier. She laid upon the bed and waited for him to join her when he did she pulled her arms around him in an embrace never letting go of his hand letting her free hand brush the bangs from his face. Nodding her head to his request as she though long and hard before smiling "I shall sing you a song I learned in Essos...."

"Day to night, dark to light,
Fall the sands of time.
Let the years like the shadows
Of the world rewind~

In your mind walk through time
Back to better days.
Memories, like a dream,
Wash tears away~

Like a star in the sky,
Darkness can't reach you
Light the night, joy is light,
Till the new dawn~

Cast away your old face
Let go your spite,
With this mask I'll ask
To borrow your light~"

Soma felt very much content as he took notice that his sister's eyes were now warm and soft, unlike earlier. This really eased him greatly. He sighed softly in relief as she pulled her arms around him in an embrace, wrapping his arms around her as well. The Prince of Dorne smiled, nodding a bit eagerly at his sister's choice of song. "Please so. I really do wish to learn of your visit to Essos sooner or later," he murmured softly. Then he began to listen intently as his eyes fluttered closed slowly, humming softly to the song's melody. Soon enough the eldest Martell drifted of to sleep with an innocent expression, feeling very soothed by the song that was sung by his dear sister.

Akhesa Martell, first of her name and princess of dorne watched over her brother as she took a deep breath singing the lines of her song over again to soothe her brother into a restful sleep. When he was sound asleep her hand stroked over his head and in the night her eyes froze piercing cold and ice, Shiera the beautiful feline hopped unto the bed purring, Akhesa reaching her hand out and tenderly petting the feline as it settled on her lap. Tilting her head she blew out the candles whispering softly in the dark "maybe one day..."

When the dawn came raising high Akhesa was not in bed with her brother she was already awake as she lounged upon the couch. the cyvasse board laid out before her in an intricate arrangement on the table, there the feline sat licking its paw. Akhesa's eyes of ice focused moving pieces around in various ways. But soon her eyes melted back into pools of blue sea as she sighed getting up from the couch gently picking up her cat which gave a small mew of protest but made no more fuss as she walked over to the window looking out at the city. Still in her night clothes as she pet the feline in her arms.

Soma stirred slightly in the bed, yawning softly as he sat up. It took him a second to realize that the other side of the bed was empty. The blazing molten gold eyes quickly searched for his sister, filling with relief when his gaze settled upon her. He was still a bit cautious that she might slip away from him again as before. That feeling didn't sit well with his stomach at all. He then glanced over at the cyvasse board from last night still on the table, the pieces seemed to be have tampered with. Had she been up messing with it as he slept. His attention drew back to his sister who was gazing out the window with the feline in her arms. The eldest Martell stretched like a feline before getting up and striding towards his sister in a lazy manner. He wrapped his arms around his sister, resting his chin upon her shoulder. "Up early I see, dear sister." he murmured in a sleep tone.

Akhesa did not stirr, move nor make a single sound except for the light sound of her breathing. That is not until she felt the warmth of her brothers arms around her and heard his voice in her ear, she turned her head to look at him only smirking as she continued to pet her cat. Shaking her head at him as she looked out the window "the way we are it is no wonder rumors spin about us... no doubt they will start up again while we are here in King's Landing doubly so if anyone finds out you like to share my bed. No doubt you will get mad, perhaps have to teach a poor noble boy a lesson or two." Going on a little wistfully as she sighed for a second before taking a breath.

"Gods how I do not miss the gossips around this forsaken castle... " leaning into her brother "Im surprised you are up though, I expected you to be asleep till noon, well since you are up... you can come with me around the castle"

Soma blinked in surprise, before chuckling softly at her remark about the rumors that surrounded the Martell siblings. People tended to believe that there was more than sibling love between them, believing them of being lovers. But that was never the truth. Soma was just a spoiled childish elder brother who craved alot of attention for himself. While his sister was very doting and possessive of him, although the last part was not what Soma believed of his sister. He only thought of the several claims by others that his sister was possessive of him, which the prince chose not to believe. "You know me so well, dear sister," he smirked, knowing that her comments were of truth. "They can think what they want. None of their concern anyway." he added in a simple blunt manner.

"Well lately I've been known to sleep late or wake up early. Just a little habit now." Soma informed his sister, not saying that it was after she had left for Essos. He nodded his head at her question. "Of course!" he exclaimed in a brighter tone.

She smiled at him with a chuckle leaning up to kiss his cheek softly "Alright... I suppose that I wil have to get used to it, pity though... no longer can I draw upon thy pretty face while you sleep till noon" teasing him lightly with the idea of pranks from childhood long since past but still fond memories to her. Gently setting the feline down she turned wrapping her arms around his neck "So pretty you are though sometimes I wonder if the gods gave me a sister instead of a brother, but then I remember that one day I walked in on you and.... oh what was her name? I cannot remember now... so young I was though to see such a thing. I do however remember you bothing crying out...." leaving that image to hang for a moment as she gently tapped his nose "in surprise of course" giggling at her own little implications and jokes.

Before letting him go and moving to gently guide her brother to his door "now... off with you, go get dressed you have until I count to 210... if you are not dressed by then I shall barge in no matter what state of dress you are and drag you outside myself for I am still and forever will be a wicked littler sister"
