The captain looked at Elyna long and hard without so much and twitching. Malcolm had been deadly serious and hadn't expected Elyna to laugh about it. "Some how I think my methods are worlds apart from that of your friend's," he told her, seconds later answering her question with the same echoed word, "anything," the man nodded, "I could make you forget your own mother, or believe that Jacadons can't fly, even while you watch them race overhead," he smiled; it felt nice to smile about sharing half a secret.

Malcolm was quiet for a few long seconds after Elyna's follow up question, he answered all of he sudden as if the right words had only just sprung to mind. "Would I be here otherwise?" As incriminating as they were, Malcolm felt that they worked.

The sky heaved and rattled then above them, riders bringing their mounts down to land, it looked as if a storm was setting in and would hopefully pass by morning. "Lady Elyna," he rose, "I must be off, my horse is rather skittish and I don't fancy my chances of getting home in one piece if the storm worsens before that happens." There was only one problem, the noble woman was sitting on his cloak, something making the trip without would leave him looking like a drowned rat.

He took both her hands and gently willed the woman to her feet, smiling down at her. His skin was very warm to the touch, almost unnaturally so, and though gloves were usually on the menu as part of his uniform, Malcolm had gone without them today. For a while he just looked at her, until it seemed he remembered his reason for shifting her in the first place. "My cloak," Malcolm grinned, his teeth surprisingly white for a man as old as him, and released her hands.

"Now that is a tempting offer," the playful reply left her lips before she thought about it. As much as her Mother was frustrating and meddling, Elyna loved her very much. She pressed her fingers over her mouth. But it was too late, the words were out there. She found herself staring at Malcolm once more. He was serious about the memories, he believed it was true...and she did trust him.The wound though? She looked up at the darkening sky. There was much to consider. This had to make sense, somehow.

His reply to her final question fell and she caught herself watching his expression with care. He lifted her hands and she stood as directed. Rain bounced off his shoulders and against the skin of her neck. Her eyes were caught and held before he spoke, "oh..." She grinned and twisted, pulling her hands free and collecting the material. She pushed it quickly into his hands, as though afraid of being burnt by his warm skin and fixed her gaze on his shoulder. It was about right for her eye level anyway.

"I've met that horse," she agreed ruefully, "bad weather or no, you'll be lucky," she peered past him at the falling sheets of rain.

"So...I'll see you on patrol, Captain."
