Sara Posted January 28 Share Posted January 28 June, 77AD Ovinia was in a mood which was not unusual, but she was particularly salty today. She was running late to meet Lucius - she'd set the time in her letter, delivered by her bodyslave and she knew he was going to be in that abandoned domus waiting for her but her protestations that she wanted to go and meet her friend fell on her fathers deaf ears. "Your brother bought the brute to accompany you, and you barely use him 'Nilla." "That is not true!" She protested with a frustrated groan, pinching the bridge of her nose as she stood in front of her father in his tablinum, "I've taken him to the games and the parties, but to go and see Menilla, I don't need him, I have Lucia-" Her father interrupted her, his voice low which very clearly said he was not to be crossed; "Your girl left you alone when you were assaulted. The only reason she is still in this house is because of your sentimentality. She cannot protect you. You will take the Briton and that is the end of it." She opened her mouth to protest again but her father flicked his eyes to the doorway in silent dismissal. She swallowed, debating whether to continue to argue but he merely said; "Ovinia." And all the fight in her went out of her. Her shoulders slumped forward and she nodded with a deep sigh. She inclined her head; "Father." And then swept from the room in a flurry of bright pink silk. She went to find Lucia, hurriedly sending instructions with her to Lucius that she wouldn't be able to come today, something had come up and she was sorry and then...then she went to find the Briton. She stalked through the domus, her exquisite chiton and palla flowing behind her with her dark hair until she came to the external courtyard that led out to the street. Some of the slaves were out there cleaning fabrics (and themselves) and they hurriedly averted their eyes as their domina drew near. She flicked her hair over her shoulder as she drew up to Cautrix and arched a brow at him. "Are you unhappy that I don't take you outside?" She asked, with no preamble. "Did you complain to my father?" TAG: @Faustus Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
