Dragging bodies of all sorts wasn’t her specialty at all, and she was glad that the week had finally ended. She didn’t have to pull two hundred pound bodies to an incinerator, which was nice, but it wasn’t exactly comfortable for her to lug around Sheila’s body. Or her own, especially. Her chest ached when she found Tamer’s and Dawit’s side by side in one area, and although she had some support from Nakamura, he didn’t do much.
OOC: I’ll be taking a small hiatus on both Lee and Rick for a while. I’ve been busy and I can’t seem to get a grip on them atm.
I’ll write Lee’s hiatus status later.
Marek was able to relax a little as he noticed she seemed a little nervous too. After an intense battle, one never knew when foul feelings might boil over into ceasefire. The spy smiled and nodded, running his left hand through his sweat-damp hair before taking the offered hand with his right.
"Marek, it’s a pleasure, Lee." He replied, shaking her hand with a single firm pump. "And not to worry. I didn’t actually expect greetings from the other team. I got a few nonetheless, but I understand why one might not go out of the way to say hello to an enemy. I’m still working on getting to know my own team, to be frank."
After pulling away from the handshake, she gave him a timid smile. “Oh, I suppose I am the same way. Though, a job is a job. So, no hard feelings on battle, Marek-san?”
Lee couldn’t help but stare at him. Was it her, or were most of the spies just strangely attractive? Then again, from all the espionage movies that she watched with her brother back then, a good face was the best way to get information.
Isn’t it, though? I finally look handsome.
But you always looked handsome. Even with the scars. c:
controlledburns replied to your post: -Pats his face.- :0c
-Pats face again.- Where did your scars go???
The greyfaces took them away. 8)
Oh that is amazing! -Grabs face as she inspects.-
That was decidedly the first time Marek had ever had his skin burned off. And it hadn’t been the most pleasant experience. He’d woken up in respawn gasping. They were called off the field after, Marek quickly pulling his mask from his face, glad to be out of it.
What he didn’t expect was to cross paths with the RED pyro on the way in. The man swallowed, and tried to smile.
"…Good fight, yes?"
She was exhausted indeed. Dragging her flamethrower after her, she pulled up her mask just a bit to breathe in the fresh air. If there was one thing she couldn’t wait for, it would be to head to the showers (that is, until everyone does so first).
The Pyro seemed to be out of it for a bit, having a late reaction before turning her head towards the spy. Now that she thought about it, she had not actually said hello to him when he had arrived to the base.
"O-oh wha— Oh! Indeed it was. You nearly got one of my comrades, hehe," she nodded and chuckled nervously before placing her Backburner away.
"Um, I do not think I had the chance to greet you just yet, but my name is Lee. At least, that is what everyone calls me," she told him, offering a gloved hand.
Pssh, do not be silly.
-Tamer waves off her teasing with a hand- The only time I would avoid you is if I was turning into some ungodly beast. Like a werewolf, or a vampire!
You worry too much, the administrator can’t punish us for having relationships among ourselves. It would be like if she punished us for having relationships with outsiders. She can only keep us from cross faction, nothing more.
She rolls her eyes at him, bumping her head gingerly against his chin. As if she didn’t have to deal with that already. Lee placed a gentle hand upon his thigh as her face fell, looking off in the distance.
"… Still, I feel- Ah, nevermind. Perhaps I should not think about it so much," she sighed, her eyes lingering over to her feet.
Let it be known that your… concerns have not fallen on deaf ears. Due to the unbalanced nature of the teams, steps have been taken. The Engineer Sheila O’Kelly has been transferred from RED to BLU indefinitely.
But we do! Wait, is this implying something?
This is definitely implying somethings. Somethings that never happened.
-Wraps his arms around her neatly.-
It might be good for him to see his daughter? You do not want to stay away and then regret it later, wishing you had.
No time to spare for your boyfriend Aiko? You wound me deep.
Lo, not even a hug after not seeing me so long. My heart it breaks.
She sighs as she leans into his arms, closing her eyes for a minute until Tamer begins making such assumptions. She pulled away, glaring at him until she pinched a cheek.
"Excuse me? I search for you and yet, I cannot find you. Perhaps it is you who does not wish to spend time with me!” She grins at him and throws an arm around his neck, pulling him down to nuzzle his nose.
"However, you are right… Though, what if the Administrator does not allow me to?"
