2-029, 'Scolding . . . A Stuffed Shirt'

Tashi shot him a scolding stare.

“Er, well… of course, of course, I’m overjoyed to see you and… and…”

Though teasing, Tashi’s voice was serious to the point of threatening.  “I have not contained my feelings these many days to be put off by a stuffed shirt, Lord Ardon.  As you have promised… and I will collect on that promise…this visit belongs to me and I shall have my way concerning it.  Tonight, and tomorrow, and the next, and the next if I wish… and I do wish… and for all the days I am here on this sojourn of mine, you will lavish you time and energies upon me.  Our bed I shall warm with you for my entire stay.”

She stood upright, shoulders back, eyebrows furrowed, hands still holding fast to Ardon’s.  “And if you think your phony piety will allow you to show aloofness toward me this eve, I will shout out to the entire crowd your passionate love songs showered upon me in your hidden chambers, songs that others so openly confess to all the world, but you, you stodgy old hermit, hide in secret vaults, fearing your dignity might be questioned should others hear that you also desire the flesh of women with manly abandon.”

Ardon’s face flushed red with embarrassment and concern.  He squeezed Tashi’s hands, pleading quietly, “Oh no!  No, my… my sweet one!  I do want to be in your company.  I have been waiting long to see you.  It’s just that, well, you know this council is so important, and…”

“And?!” Pulling a hand away, Tashi shook a finger at him.  “And if you don’t behave, I will take my leave with that officer over there…” pointing at Bedan in a distant corner, “and I will deliver my pent-up desires upon him!”

Almost jumping from his chair, Ardon quietly cried, “No!  No! I mean… I mean, I do want your company… really.  I am sorry that…”

Tashi grinned.  “That’s better.  No more granny grunt stuff.”  She kissed him and turned to leave.  “I have other business to attend to, but I will not be far away.  Do not leave me alone after this night’s council.  I will be waiting.”  She hurried off to see some others. . .
