Rhysand cut me a wicked look. "Come on, don't be a scaredy cat!"
I glared at him incredulously. "Scaredy cat?! Have you met him?!"
I could have sworn I heard someone snicker, probably Mor, or Cassian, perhaps even Feyre, cruelty wasn't scarce among my friends.
"What's the worse that could happen?"
"Death. Quick and cruel death."
A howl escaped Cassian's fat mouth and I glared at him too.
"My shadowsinger is not going to kill you in a game of rock paper scissors." A short pause,"Cards maybe..."
I took one look at Az who was definitely amused, and made up my mind.
"I'll throw myself down the steps of the house of wind instead."
"Interesting as that would be, we'd prefer to have you around for a while longer. Right Az?" A smile in his friend's direction.
"How unfortunate." I deadpanned.
A feline smile, "You're stalling."
"Yes, Rhy-sand. Of course I'm fucking stalling. I don't want to play against him. He'd probably find a way to stab me with the imaginary scissors."
"I thought you wanted to have a game night." His voice, deep and cold had a wicked undertone and I felt, more than saw Az's smile. 'Bastard.'
I swiveled, immediately to face him."Was beating your High Lord and his pet in a snowball fight not enough?-" "HEY!" I gnored Cassian and turned to face my mate."Must I also fall victim?"
I held his stare, and the brightness, the life that danced in those hazel eyes made me sigh. "Fine." I mumbled. Az threw me a cruel smile and I let out a groan. Prick. A pinch on my ass with his shadows was the reply.
All I could do was glare, but I was stalling, and everyone knew it.
"We would like to see this happen today you know. " Mor drawled.
"Okay, but why? We've all already lost to him at uno, and I barely won in monopoly. He and Nesta dominated Feyre and Rhys in cards, and pictionary. I'm not sure that I can take anymore of this. I should have stopped playing after uno with Cassian . Or better yet— I should have gone with Amren and Varian."
Laughter surrounded me, and I rolled my eyes.
"I'm not sure that Amren and Varian would find your presence welcoming right now." Nesta drawled, a glare from me and a wicked grin from her.
"Elain should play with him."
At this, her eyes widened. "Oh no, I'm fine with watching you all lose. My tea and I have no interest in joining."
"Cruel, the lot of you."
"Come on, he's your mate, it's not like he'll beat you as badly."
I cut my high lady a wicked look. "You and I both know that's not true."
She laughed at me.
"I'm waiting darling."
I pinched the bridge of my nose. " The Mother did not put me in this world just to be bullied by you all."
"Says who?!" Cackled Mor.
Cassian handed me a small glass with brown liqour in it and I glared at it.
"It won't bite you little one." I glared at him.
"No, but it is nasty. How can you stomach so much of it" I asked the war general.
His mate answered,"Cause Cassian's a brute."
Rhys snorted in response, and Feyre, Mor and I laughed, while he flipped
I smiled, and turned back to Az.
'What do I get if I win?' Az snorted. 'Doesn't matter. When I win though, I get to tear those pants off of you...' His shadows rolled around me, and I sent a tendril of my own power to flick him on the forehead. 'Pervert.' A privately wicked smile in response.
"Ugh. Feyre and Rhys are awful enough, much less Cass and Nesta." The latter couple snickered and Mor threw them a dirty look. "I'm serious, I can barely go in the House of wind anymore. You're scents are everywhere."
It was my turn to laugh, but Mor cut in again.
"Mother save me from the wrath of these horny couples." Elain raised her glass to that, and I found myself laughing again.
'You have a beautiful smile.. I can't wait to scrape it off your face with the imaginary scissors.'
The asshole just shrugged and got into position, and I did the same.
Rhys starts couting us off,"Rock, paper, scissors, lizard spock!"
I look at Az's hands, and scream. "YES!"
My hands launch into the air and a bright smile spreads over my face.
Azriel only mumbles defeatedly,"I thought you were going to play spock."
"BUT I DIDN'T AND SCISSORS DECAPITATES LIZARD!"
"So they won?" Elain asked Nesta, who snorted "Yep."
"Good enough for me." complained Cassian, who was still not over his defeat in uno.
I rolled my eyes and looked back at my mate, who was now pointing their middle fingers at me and dancing.
I should have fucking known they would chose the very last minute to change their mind, my shadows heard them chanting Spock the entire time— oh.
I glared at them and they smiled at me. "Cheater."
Their response was to stick out their tongue at me, and continue waving their middle fingers, causing the opal mating ring I gave them to glint in the light.
"Am I the only lost one?"Mor asked, looking around.
"Feyre responded,"They taught us how to play some weird human version of rock paper scissors last week when you were in Vallahan. Apparently," She cut me a look." They and Az have been playing since before that, and they never win."
"Except today!" Another proud exclamation from my very loud mate.
"Cheater." I complained again, I loved seeing them happy but not when it was because I lost in the most predictable way possible.
"I did not cheat, Azriel. YOU tried to cheat, and I intercepted it."
I glared at them. "I see no difference."
"And I, Shadowsinger," my shadows purred in response, curling themselves into my body shyly, -a fat fucking tell-," think that I should brainstorm a punishment", and to me they laughed, 'Pants indeed'
"Oh!" they exclaimed with a start, as if remembering something,"I just remembered, Mor, we should be heading out to Rita's now."
"Oh yes! You're right. Let's get going. Any of you guys coming?"
Everyone mumbled their agreement.
"Anyone seen my shoes?"
"Dining room I think?" Elain offered.
I watched as they went to go get them.
"Your mate is a chaotic little thing." Cassian tittered from Nesta's lap.
I snorted. They had no idea.
I watched as they walked back in, still barefoot. They grabbed my hand, and began leading me out.
"We'll be right back!" they said over their shoulder.
We walked into the kitchen and they began crawling under the table, where they kicked their shoes. When they emerged, I asked them"Not that I don't love our alone time," a bright smile that made my heart squeeze," but why did you need me to keep you company while you get your shoes?"
Putting them on, they said " It's not the shoes I need help with."
"Mhm." They wrapped their arms around me, and gazed into my eyes.
Fuck, they're beautiful. My hands found their place on their hips when I asked, "What do you need help with?"
"Something fun." Another smile, and I knew not to trust them.
They kissed me, and with a wave of their hand I knew I was right.
I re-entered the living room where my family was sitting, a big smile on my face.
"Where's Az?" Cassian asked.
"On his way."
He stared at me, a suspicious look in his eyes.
I grinned at him with a wink.
A few minutes passed, and still no sign of Az.
"Please don't tell me you got rid of my brother," Rhys sighed.
"He's the only one with manners, I can't afford to lose him." Feyre agreed.
I winked at her, "He's been through worse."
A mischevious glint entered her eyes, but whatever she was about to say died in her throat as her mouth fell open.
Standing at the door was Ariel, wearing leather pants. Pink, leather pants. He made no eyecontact as he crossed the threshold and walked to the front door. Walking past Mor who dropped her wine glass promptly after seeing what was written on them. Cassian looked tempted to jeer him, before he too saw the word 'juicy' in big, white, bubble,letters across his ass. But it was Elain, Elain however, who started howling first, a bright peal of laughter tearing out of her. Immediately, her hand went to cover her mouth, realizing what she did, but one look at Az again and she lost it. Red nosed, and teary eyed, our Lady of Divine Propriety promptly fell apart. Cassian and Nesta, Mor and Feyre shared a look of pure shock, before joining in.
Rhys watched them, mouth wobbling. I walked over to him, my High Lord and friend.
"Thank you for introducing us." I looked at Az, who seemed to shrink into himself, and was blushing profuselfy.
"My pleasure." A tender smile, and then loud laughter when I walked over to my mate and slapped hiss ass. Cassian, Elain, Nesta, Mor and Feyre began dying anew. Rolling on the floor, Cassian screamed ,and after seeing Az's blush grow darker, Mor fell and joined him.
I had never seen anything as perfect, standing here with my mate, watching our family absolutely lose their shit. One look at Az, and I knew he'd get me back. 'I hope you're happy.' He grumbled down our bond.
I snickered and looked at our family again, took his scarred hand and kissed it. Out loud, I said, "Beyond measure."
