It had been weeks since Marian had been forcefully brought to live in the castle. Longer than she liked to go without seeing her father. Robin had sneaked a few missives back and forth, but it wasn't the same as seeing him. The want to do so was probably stronger than was healthy.

And so Marian found herself at the castle gate, trying to con one of the more soft hearted guards. "Please David, I wont be gone long enough to be missed, I promise." She batted her long eyelashes at the man. "I feel like a wilted flower, if I don't get some sunshine and fresh air soon I may begin to shrivel." The man stuttered, he was a bit young, still wet behind the ears, unused to pretty women speaking so boldly to him.

Yet before he could say anything he went near white. Looking over her shoulder at something. Glancing back Marian too paled. "Sir Guy." She greeted.

"You can make of it what you will," Guy answered. "I don't much care one way or another, Marian." She had burned any bridges when she had jilted him at the altar.

"But I will not have you tempting the guards." Hard eyes met hers. "Not only will you be punished, so will they." And anyone she saw after her escape, be it her father, or Hood. He most definitely had his suspicions there.

She squared her jaw. He would punish the innocent party. And that was why she was glad she'd struck him. She'd do it again had she a way to run from the aftermath. So instead she gave him one of the looks that would kill.

"I am glad I found this out now, rather than after, had I followed through." Oh yes she did go there, no she wasn't talking about wooing the guard into letting her out of the gate, but of their wedding.

He misunderstood, what she was aiming at "Yes, good that you did. I'm sure the guard appreciates it, as well." It was all too easy to manipulate Marian, given her penchant for protecting the 'innocent'. In Guy's mind there were not many of those in the world.
Sep. 2nd, 2011 06:51 pm (UTC)
Of course he would misunderstand. Though she was sure the guard appreciated that she'd been caught, that hardly had been the point. "What's to keep me from leaving of my own accord?" She knew by now that Edward was being watched by what she considered to be the best.

"Besides the guards?" Guy questioned. "I wouldn't try it if I were you, Marian. Where would you go, anyway? To live in the forest with the outlaws?"

He leaned in, looming over her. "I would track you down."
Sep. 3rd, 2011 01:22 am (UTC)
"York, take a new name..." She trailed off. No that wasn't a real idea, she would most like go live in the forest with Robin. Once she hid her father where he couldn't be touched.

She glared up at him as he loomed over her. "How would you manage that? You have yet to catch The Night Watchman, or Robin Hood." Oh yes she was rubbing salt in the wound, her tone icy.

His hand snapped out, grabbing both of her arms, hard. Eyes bored into hers. "You're not an outlaw Marian," he almost smirked. "You're not a rat, running to hide. You would stand out." He could find her anywhere. "And you would never be free of me."
Sep. 3rd, 2011 01:48 am (UTC)
She hissed as he grabbed both of her arms. Her jaw jutting out at him. "Are you so sure? Perhaps I cut off my hair and posed as a boy. Or find a bit of the wood all to myself." Yeah that wouldn't go over well. He would have to search all of sherwood. And she knew how well that had gone with trying to find Robin. Her eyes narrowed. Part of her was daring him to do his worst. Daring him to... do something.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 01:58 am (UTC)
"You can never hide from me," he returned, voice deepening as he pulled her in. "I know you too well, Marian." Without thinking much beyond shutting her up, he pulled her in tightly against him, pressing a long hard kiss to her lips, one that lasted far too long, perhaps. A thought occurred to him, then, as he pulled back, smirking down at her. Before she had been free to refuse him, now she was not. Now she had her father's welfare to take into consideration. Now she was all but his.

He was rather effective with shutting her up. She'd kept tense, drawn up against him, until the final moments. If there was one thing she could say about him... He was a damn fine kisser. She acknowledged she was building a list again. Hadn't he burnt that list the moment he lied to her about the king?

She didn't like that look in his eye. What was he thinking? It couldn't be anything good. She pressed her hands against his chest. "Let me go."
Sep. 3rd, 2011 02:23 am (UTC)
He held her close for a moment longer, unwilling to let he go too quickly. She had liked the kiss, he could tell. Still he eventually let her pull away, smirking all the while.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 02:29 am (UTC)
Marian wasn't entirely sure he was going to let her go. But once she felt his hands loosen she eased her arms out of his hold. "I do not doubt that I could hide from you in this very castle." She knew she was tempting fate, but this was the most excitement she'd had in weeks.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 02:32 am (UTC)
"Are you so sure about that, Marian?" He questioned, voice deep as he took another step toward her, one hand rising to run along her cheek.

"I think I could find you with no issue."
Sep. 3rd, 2011 02:37 am (UTC)
"I am near positive." She did grow up with Robin Hood after all. And being in the castle for three weeks she had pretty much found every nook and cranny available, that wasn't behind locked door or guarded. She didn't even think to pull from him as his hand ran along her cheek.

"What makes you so confident?"
Sep. 3rd, 2011 02:47 am (UTC)
"Because I could sense you," he almost murmured, hand lingering against her skin. Could find her in a dark corner. Dark corners for dark deeds. Or a room with some privacy.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 02:56 am (UTC)
If only she could... "It's that easy, hmm? I could hide anywhere? And you would just... Sense me out? What, like a hound?" she was teasing him, she raised up on her toes, her fingers remaining against his chest. Which forced her to lean into him slightly.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 03:16 am (UTC)
"Like a magnet," he murmured, arm snaking around her waist to pull her in again for another long kiss. Yes, he could get quite used to this, to having her, being pleased by her. She was a temptress and a traitor, of course, but a delicious one.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 03:54 am (UTC)
Despite what her mind wanted, she could not deny the instant heat she felt flair between them. Her fingers inched up until they were over his shoulders. It didn't come to her that they were in eye and ear shot of a few guards. Perhaps more than a few.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 04:08 am (UTC)
It didn't much matter, to be honest. No one would try anything with her, not with Guy of Gisborne's temper as well known as it was. Arms wound around her, his hands bunching the fabric at the base of her spine, just enjoying the fact that she seemed to be so content in his arms.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 04:28 am (UTC)
Weather anyone would try anything or not was not the point. The point was her reputation was on the line... And... something might get back to Robin. But at that very moment? She didn't care. Her fingers climbed into his hair, curling to the length at the nape of his neck.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 04:39 am (UTC)
Perhaps this is what Marian needed; a bit of fire and passion, and then she would respond. Perhaps he had not been on the right track by treating her with kindness and respect.

His arms tightened, pulling her against him, making sure she understood exactly what she did to him.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 04:46 am (UTC)
It was hard not to notice what she did to him. Even through the leather. Slowly she eased herself away. "Guy..." She wasn't entirely sure how to put what she wanted to say, but her eyes cut to the door, then back to him. Her cheeks faintly flushed.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 04:53 am (UTC)
He almost growled in frustration as he put back. For a moment there, he had been lost in her lips, lost in the sensations, but then she pulled away and he became aware once again. Of course it wouldn't do to have her out in the open air with all the guards, and the Sheriff to see... No, she was still a lady.

A slight nod and his grasp loosened slightly. Still, he didn't let her pull all the way back. "Marian..." She had to know what she did to him, how she made him feel. She could not just leave him hanging like this.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 06:53 am (UTC)
"Guy." She said a little more sternly. Kissing him out in the open was a little more than she was usually prepared to do. She looked rather pointedly at the door over his shoulder again. He wasn't the only one stirred. She couldn't hide the heat in her eyes.
Sep. 3rd, 2011 02:01 pm (UTC)
Seeing that heat only spurred him on. Of course. She wasn't a kitchen maid. Still, it was obvious she wanted this as much as he did.

Nodding again, he pulled back, keeping hold of one hand as he tugged her toward the door she kept looking at, stopping once they were inside to pull her into another embrace. She was like a drug and he couldn't get enough of her.
