Daevion woke up early and quickly got up, glancing worriedly at Vienna. He was the slightest bit concerned for her, but he was worried about himself too. Quickly he left the room and didn't return.
Vienna slept soundly for the rest of the night and until morning. She stirred slightly when Daevion got up and left, but she fell back asleep without a second thought. Noticing his absence, she pulled more of the comforter to her side of the bed, snuggling deeper into them. She sighed softly, and continued sleeping for a few more hours. When she awoke, Daevion was still gone.
A maid came into Daevion's room and started to clean until she looked at the bed. Then she let out a shreik, eyes wide.
Vienna was only half awake when the maid came into Daevion's room. At the sound of the shriek, Vienna shrieked back in response. She sat up in bed and began shaking her head wildly. "It's not what it looks like, I swear!" Vienna shrieked, while getting out of bed. She smoothed out her maid's dress and looked nervously to the maid standing in the doorway.
The maid's eyes went wide and she stared open mouth at Vienna. "Oh my. He would never..." The maid trailed off one hand over her heart.
Vienna shook her head frantically. "No no no! I swear, NOTHING happened!" she cried out in despair. "Why are you here? I can do whatever you were sent here to do." she mumbled, motioning to her maid's uniform.
The maid started to smile, not to be thrown off corse. "Daevion and Missy sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!" The maid grinned dancing around her. "Hey Missy, good going! He needs to loosen up, jeez, he's been off for the last thousand years." The maid looked at her curiously, her brown eyes wide. She did not ask for her name.
Vienna was blushing, and her cheeks were a bright shade of red. "No no, really. We didn't do anything, I swear. He doesn't even want to touch me." she murmured. "He slept on the very edge of the bed..." Vienna trailed off, chuckling quietly.
The maid looked very put off. "Well, then don't make a move on him." She said in a flat tune. "He'll end up killing you." She moved about the room cleaning, and tidying, not that he left much just lying around.
Vienna's eyes widened at the maid's comment, but didn't say anything in reponse. She watched as the maid tidied up Daevion's room. "So what's your name?" Vienna asked curiously. It had taken her until now to realize that after having a conversation with her, she hadn't even bothered to ask for her name until now.
The maid didn't turn to her. Instead she went to a wall and tapped a couple bricks. It swung open to reveal a closet full of cleaning supplies. She took out a bucket and went to a different wall, cleaning. "Maids here don't have names. Unless you count, "Maid!" or "Over here you!"." The maid turned to Vienna, "You should know that, he should have already stripped you of that right."
Vienna narrowed her brows, an expression of confusion plastered on her face. "No, actually. I don't believe he's stripped me of my name yet..." she muttered softly. She didn't want to leave her name behind, it was the only familiar thing she had left in her life at this point. Vienna twiddled her thumbs for a moment, watching as the maid began to clean. "Uh, what should I be doing?" she mumbled, embarrassed.
The maid turned to her, an almost hopeful expression on her face. "He hasn't stripped you of your name?" She asked excitly running over to her and hugging her, abondoning the cleaning. "This is awsome!" Sundenly she pulled back and mummbled something. She cleared her throat and said a little louder, "This is embarassing, but could you, um, give me a name? Like just for you to use with me, and not in front of Master!"
((I have an awsome idea for you know "bonding" between Veinna and Daevion. Let me know if you want to hear it.))
(( Of course I want to hear your idea!! I can't wait for this! :D ))
Vienna had a perplexed expression plastered upon her face. She was confused as to why that this was such a big deal to the maid. "A name for you" Okay I guess, let's see..... How about Mabel? I like that name, and I think it that it suits you well!" she exclaimed excitedly.
(Sorry for the short post my keyboard is being icky))
((Thats okay, i'll tell you tomorow, hopefuly I'll remeber it....))
Mabel nodded excitedly. "And what's your name?" After a second's though she said, "Don't ever call me Mabel in front of Master."
Daevion sighed tired already, even though it was just morning. Getting another alarm, he sighed again and went off. Unwillingly he caught himself thinking of Vienna, and shook his head.
Vienna chuckled quietly to herself. "I'm Vienna. And don't worry, I promise I won't call you that in front of Daevion." she murmured smiling at the thought of him, but shaking her head, forcing his image out of her mind. She fiddled mindlessly with the frills of her apron.
Mabel smiled, "Vienna it is." Mabel set her to sweeping the floor while she washed the windows. They chatted for a long while, long past when the floor was swept and the windows clean.
Vienna began sweeping, enjoying her chat with Mabel. "So how long have you been working here?" she asked curiously. She grabbed a dust pan and swept up all of the dust and garbage she had collected.
Mabel just shrugged, "Oh perhaps since... 120 B.C.? That sounds right." She said this as if it were normal and for her it was, Daevion had worked since the begining of time.
