Chevi Posted May 7, 2020 Share Posted May 7, 2020 October, 74CE Things had not progressed as fast as Aia and Decimus had hoped. After things got sorted out after the attack on the road, and everyone got chewed out by Flavia Juliana, Claudia and Cynane returned to the city (with the appropriate number of guards this time), and Decimus, once he could be moved, was taken back to the Castra so that the medici who took care of the praetorians could make sure his wound healed properly. He only got stolen moments with Aia before he left, and his absence left Aia shifting between sheer happiness and sheer worry. Days and weeks passed. Flavia Juliana did not go to the city very often, and when she did, Aia accompanied her in the hopes of seeing Decimus, but he was not back on duty yet. She managed to leave him messages, but no encounter, in a pantry or otherwise, managed to happen. Until today. Flavia Juliana was at the Palatine, and Aia managed to get the night off. She headed to the popina where they'd met before, leaving a message she hoped Decimus would get. She knew the owner of the popina, and hoped they'd have a room for the night. All this was long overdue. By the time she entered the popina it was getting late in the evening. There were quite a few people inside, eating, drinking, and getting cheerfully loud. Aia covered her head with her palla as usual, trying to hide her telltale red hair as she walked to the counter. Hopefully, in a crowd like this, she would not draw anyone's attention... @Atrice 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
