"So why come here?" That's the real sticking point, as far as you're concerned. Eligos had no real reason to leave the party. He comes to parties without a date all the time, and usually still leaves with someone or other on his arm. Hell, he could have turned his charm onto one of Jasper's servants, if he'd felt like it. He does have a reputation for fucking other peoples' servants.

"I was bored," he says, stretching out in the seat he claimed for himself. "My date was gone, and I only really showed up to make a fool out of Murmur, anyhow. You know I don't particularly like eating angels. And I couldn't even find Ornias to tell them about Marax and Murmur getting together. I think they went off somewhere private with Prince Glasya-Labolas."

At that, Eligos gives you a catlike smile, like he knows he's provoking you. He's not far off. You like Glas, but you care about Or more than you care about anything else in your life. Jealousy pools in your gut, and you try not to feel ill will towards Glas, but can't quite manage it at the moment. You think that maybe you were wrong to turn down Or's invitation to the dinner party.

More than anything, you think Eligos has already overstayed his welcome, but you can't just say that. It's rude. Maybe you should just pick a fight with him to make him leave on his own.

"I don't think Glas and Or will get up to much beyond demons being demons - I'm more worried about what other decidedly unromantic trouble he could get up to this time. Tonight is his first time at Jaspar's estate, and I heard from Or that his invitation was rather sudden after he witnessed that incident involving the angel."
>>
No. 972966 ID: dbd72b

Glas was clearly hitting on you harder than Or, so this is the opposite of a problem.

Buuut, if you need some space to deal with your feelings, trying to out bitch Eligos isn't going to happen, he's a professional.

Normally, it's a loss to let someone know they're getting to you, but then, normally someone wouldn't beat the living shit out of some brat twenty feet away from Satan himself at Satan's own fancy party, now would they? Let Eli know he's pushing it. Gently(-ish).

If he still wants to play stupid games after that, you can give him stupid prizes.

"Eligos," you say, warningly, giving him a look to let him know that he's pushing his luck.

"What?" he asks, eyes wide and innocent behind his glasses. "I just thought I would update you on how Ornias's night is going. I thought you might want to know, considering you turned down their invitation to dinner."

"You are antagonizing me," you say bluntly. That's one thing you have going for you that most nobles don't - you say what you mean, instead of talking around the truth. Some people find it refreshing, and some find it inappropriate at best. "If you came here to do only that, you may leave."

"You wound me, Camio," Eligos says, like he still has no idea what you're talking about. "Aren't we friends?"

You consider this for a long moment, so long that Eligos looks almost uncomfortable. Good. Let him sweat for a minute. He deserves at least that much.

"Yes," you say, finally. "But only when you are not being a bitch."

Eligos blinks, and then laughs. You doubt he's learned his lesson, but at least you can say you warned him. If he wants to keep playing stupid games after this, you'll make sure he gets stupid prizes in return.

While you were making Eligos sweat, one of your servants quietly brought a drink cart in with a bottle of wine and some glasses. You make a mental note to find whoever it was and thank them later, and fill up a glass for yourself, having a feeling you'll need it to make it through the rest of this conversation.

"Where's your human?" Eligos asks, immediately proving you right. He looks around the parlor owlishly, as though Umara might appear out of thin air.

"Not here," you say, unwilling to give him any more than that.

"Did she get the package I sent her?" he asks. "She didn't mention what sort of books she liked, so I tried to include a little of everything from my English collection. I'm not expecting them back anytime soon, so -"

"She got them," you say. Umara seemed pleased about the books, too, but you're obviously not going to tell Eligos that. You don't want to inflate his ego any more than it already is. And you have no idea why Umara was so happy with those old books, anyway. Should you have been buying her books this whole time?

"Oh, excellent." Eligos smiles. He pours himself a half-glass of wine and swirls it idly around the glass, watching it for a long moment. "You know, I was going to suggest we go somewhere more private, but if your human isn't around..."

You blink at him, once, before the pieces begin fall into place. Ah. He's flirting with you. It's hard to tell if he's course correcting because you told him to stop being a bitch, or if this was his plan all along, but knowing Eligos, you're pretty sure it's the latter. Usually Murmur is Eligos's go-to pity fuck, but obviously Murmur is a little busy at the moment.

You're pretty sure you could ignore this. In fact, you are almost a hundred percent sure that you could play dumb and pretend not to know Eligos is flirting with you, at least up until a certain point. You could also just...be normal and see where this goes, but you have a cup of tea and two vastly more tolerable guests waiting for you in the kitchen, and you definitely prefer that to Eligos.

He's definitely fishing, and on the rebound. Seems to have backed off Umara when you were short about it, which is good, and that'll last... as long as it does. Whether it's successful is another matter, given her opinion of him.

What's your relationship with Eligos? Is he pity-fuckable? And how put off (if at all) would Duma and Umara be if you go for it?

Let things play out a bit while you think.

> What's your relationship with Eligos?

You've known Eligos since you were both fairly young, when you were still Ornias's personal attendant, and he was Ornias's bratty cousin. You weren't friends, then.

You and Eligos have a sort of mutual respect that you're both older - he's much more mature than he used to be, and you're a lord instead of a servant. You see Eligos and Murmur every week at an exclusive teatime that Ornias hosts just for the four of you, and you would (however begrudgingly sometimes) consider Eligos a friend.

> Is he pity-fuckable?

Yes, but certainly never your first choice.

> How put off would Or be if you diddled the dude?

Or...probably wouldn't care that much, but you doubt that you or Eligos would ever tell them about it in the first place. You would probably be too embarrassed to, and Eligos doesn't make a habit of bragging about his sexual conquests. For all of his faults, he's very discreet.

> And how put off (if at all) would Duma and Umara be if you go for it?

Not very. They're both aware that you fuck other people, and neither seems to care very much. You suspect that Duma, at least, has other partners on the side as well.

Eligos is still talking, and you haven't been paying attention, so you have no idea what he's saying anymore. He probably has no idea that he's essentially flirting with a brick wall, which is fairly amusing. You're thinking about rejecting him outright, so you can get back to your tea already, when someone begins urgently pounding on your door for the second time tonight and makes you jump out of your skin.

"I didn't know you were expecting visitors," Eligos says, arching an eyebrow.

"I wasn't," you growl. There really shouldn't be anyone else at your door tonight, but at least going to check who it is will give you an excuse to leave Eligos here, if you like. You could also ignore it, and let the servants take care of it while you stay with Eligos.
>>
No. 973430 ID: 70df1e

stay because all that running back and forth to the door is probably not very good for your knee. your servant will tell you who it is, right? and whether or not you can send them away?

in the meantime share a long suffering look with eligos, because being around unexpected guests is tiring, regardless of whether or not they are pity-fuckable
>>
No. 973432 ID: ce39da

This knocking sounds a bit more urgent - see who's there (though I'm sure the servant who was already there can handle the door for you). It's a good enough excuse to get away from Eligos, anyway.
>>
No. 973434 ID: 08b8d8

>>973430
Agreed, definitely have someone else get that. Rest your knee. If it's that urgent, they can come stumbling dramatically into your tearoom. I'm sure it'll be fine.

You share a long-suffering look with Eligos, hopefully communicating exactly how disinclined you are to pick yourself up and get the door again. Your knee feels much better now that you're sitting down, and your chair is cozy - and, while you could take or leave Eligos being here, at least you know exactly what you're getting into with him.

"Veri," You say loudly, calling for the servant who took Eligos's cloak just a moment ago. You assume they're still hanging around here somewhere. "Will you get the door?"

To your surprise, Veri appears in the doorway almost instantly. Their face is several shades more pale than it was before, and they look significantly shaken.

"I did, my lord," they say, trying to communicate something to you with their eyes that you can't quite understand.

Unfortunately, you don't have to try and understand for long, because suddenly King Satan is barging into your second-favorite sitting room.

"Camio!" he says delightedly, apparently not noticing Eligos - or simply deciding not to address him. Satan's eyes are bright, and he's grinning at you like he's very, very pleased with himself. "I was in the neighborhood and thought I'd drop in on my favorite lord of Hell. How are you?"

Eye and knee are still bad, but otherwise doing fine. Eligos is paying a visit, which is... also fine.

Maybe that's a good thing, though. You're too exhausted for the surprise of Satan being here to really register, which means you're not tripping all over yourself to say hello and looking like an idiot. Which, unfortunately, Eligos is.

"Your Highness," he stammers, plastering on a smile and jumping to his feet. You can see the gears turning in his head as he tries to figure out if he should stay seated, or get up and start bowing. "It's been some time since we last saw each other, hasn't it? I wasn't aware you were -"

"That's funny, because I wasn't aware I asked you anything," Satan says coolly.

Eligos makes a choked noise and settles back into his seat, lips pressed together in a thin, tight line. You can't help the tiny smile that twitches at the corner of your own lips -- it's vindicating to see someone else put him in his place in a way that you can't.

"Anyway, Camio," Satan says, leaning casually in the doorway. "What's up? We haven't talked since I cut your hands off in court."

"By design," you say, flatly.

It gets a laugh out of him. What you told Glas the other day is true: the king thinks you're funny even when you're rude to him, and you don't understand it. You assume one day he won't find it funny anymore, but you'll cross that bridge when you come to it. For now, you're mostly satisfied that you can get away with not groveling at his feet like everyone else does. You're not the groveling type.

"Why don't we take a little walk and catch up?" Satan asks.

You can tell from his tone that it's more of an order than a suggestion, but you suppose you could still say no. Obviously Eligos wouldn't be invited, so going with Satan would necessitate leaving him here, and possibly letting him talk to Duma and Umara without you to run interference. Which would be fine, if you weren't certain that Satan intends to turn a little walk into flirting, and maybe something else.

"My tea is getting cold," you tell Satan.

"And I'm sure your servants would be happy to make you fresh tea when we get back inside," he retorts.

"I'm in my nightclothes," you say. "Not fit to be seen outside."

"Oh, I don't mind." He grins. You know he knows that you're just going through the motions of objecting. You're still going to go with him after this, because he practically ordered you to, but at least it will be clear that you're going under duress.

"My leg hurts," you say, bluntly, though you're already getting to your feet. At least the distraction from Eligos is welcome, even if your bad knee does genuinely feel stiff.

"We can take breaks whenever you like," Satan says. Something in his tone is a little more honest now. "I'll even carry you back to the house if we go too far, and you don't feel like walking. Just say the word."

You snort. "I will not."

You take your cane from where you leaned it against the side of the armchair, and make your way over to Satan in the doorway. Eligos stays where he is. He seems to know he's not invited, despite Satan not saying it aloud. You have no illusions that he'll stay contained to this room while you're gone, but you can hope that he won't get up to anything.

Your name is Duke Eligos Bathinson, and you have been left on your own for the second time this evening. Marax abandoning you in order to neck with Murmur in the hedge maze was to be expected, more or less, but you have to admit that Satan showing up here at Camio's estate is throwing you off.
