"Your first born child as a meat pie would be lovely," he deadpanned, "the meat is so tender and fresh." A growing smirked etched along the side of his face, but he immediately dropped it to his signature stoic face.

"No. There is no catch. I just want your compliance." He raised a hand for a handshake. "Keeping you as livestock is not my intention."

Keaton couldn't stop the smile that flashed across her lips at his remark. "Heh. Good luck with that; if I'm your blood servant forever I don't see myself getting out to bear children any time soon!" she snarked back.

Still, he offered all he did, with no strings attached. Just to 'behave'. The redhead sighed. It was this, or deal with the dress among other unpleasantries, she supposed. She held out her hand and clasped it in his for a surprisingly firm handshake. "As you wish it..... for now. I'll behave and do as you ask. But don't expect me to do it with a smile and courtesy. The maid in me died when I was thirteen. So courtly behaviours and pretty courtesies are off the table." she said with a smirk before leaning back against the wall. "So if livestock's not what you're after with me, then what is? Don't tell me you just wanted to save me out of pity. I'll believe that when pigs fly, princeling." she added.

Mitchell shook her calloused hand and let his grim expression slip a little. He would never expect for her to sit and look dainty and please lords and ladies. Until he convinced her to trust him, a collar will be a permanent accessory.

"So if livestock's not what you're after with me, then what is?"


"To stop my father from starting a war. His--apologies," he murmured, reaching behind Keaton to break the chain. He figured his fast movement startled her and wanted to keep the atmosphere's composure. "--His arrogance was your salvation. Also a blood servant wouldn't bite."

He continued to hold the chain, gauging her reaction to her sudden freedom. Earlier he picked up intense hostility. It wouldn't surprise him if she tried to pull something. Unfortunately for her, Mitchell is specialized in combat. The vampires she's used to killing are lowly rogues and travellers. None have endured centuries of rigorous training. And even more intense after the death of his mother.

She tensed as the male approached, her fists balled as he yanked the chain behind her to break it. His explanation garnered a smirk from the assassin. "They don't bite eh? Well, they've never had me as a blood servant." she quipped.

Still, she was now free-er.... so to speak. She looked up at him, a spark of defiance still glimmering in her eyes. I could try and kill you.... right now..... she thought to herself. But she paused, remembering where she was, what she was in, and who she was with. The vampire prince didn't seem like the meek and mild sort. He could easily take her down, especially when she was in a dress. No. She'd have to bide her time. Today was not the day he'd die. She'd play nice, for now.

"So. How does all this work? Do I need to call you 'master' or 'milord' or 'your grace?' .... though I suppose 'your grace' would be reserved for his royal highness...." she added with a roll of her eyes. Her courtly pleasantries didn't escape from her memory so easy it would appear.

Mitchell grimaced at 'master'.

"I would prefer if you called me Prince Mitchell. Other formalities would do." He replied gruffly, lightly pulling her chain.

"Come now. We'll be traveling back to the capital. I imagine you'll be in the same carriage as your servants. I've been told you'd been tame with them, interestingly enough." He stole a sidelong glance at her. "I thought their vampiric blood would turn you feral against them. They don't sustain themselves on just fruits and breads."

Keaton's surprising demeanor with the half-bloods was half-expected. Her showing obedience to the young ones made the gears in Mitchell's head rapidly spin. Something wasn't adding up.

He led her down to the entrance without another word and left her with the servants from before.

Keaton smirked at his grimace. She made note that he detested that one; she might have to say it every now and again just to piss him off. Still, she curtseyed mockingly before standing up when he gave the chain a light tug. She stumbled a little, not used to walking in boots with such a high heel, as well as being in a tangle of fabric and lace. The redhead grimaced. "Very well, Prince Mitchell.." she muttered.

As they walked, he made a comment about the children who had attended her earlier. She looked straight ahead, running her hand gently over some of the scrapes and bruises on her face, still there from the skirmish with those who'd ambushed her. It was awhile before she spoke. "They're children. I don't go after children; leave that for the real monsters out there." She said simply.

She was placed in the carriage with the same serving group as before, and left there with them. She studied each of these half bloods' faces. She wanted to put them to memory. "So..... do you all have names I can call you or am I just gonna have to scare you every time I tap one of you on the shoulder----- relax, I'm not gonna eat you or kill you for that matter. Ya think I could do anything in... this?" she gestured to the dress they had garbed her in.

The eldest straightened up. "I'm Miriam," she announced. Her brown hair was pulled in a tight bun and her silver eyes met Keaton's. She extended a stiff hand for a handshake.

"This one," she said with a nod to the right, "is Alya. Quite quiet, don't expect much conversation." Alya rolled her eyes but otherwise didn't move or speak.

"And this little one is-"

"-Beatrix--hello, hi--is it true you have a dragon breath gifted to you by an angry devil from the Kismüt Mountains?" Beatrix, the smallest and most wild looking one asked. All traces of fear had vanished and she was eagerly holding on to Keaton's hand. Miriam hissed a warning, but she ignored it, her eyes searching for any trace of fire burning in Keaton's throat.

Keaton listened as Miriam spoke. She watched as she introduced Alya and then Beatrix grasped Keaton's hand in a vigorous shake. Keaton's hard gaze cracked into one of amusement as she vigorously shook the girl's hand. "Hahaha, well maybe that's true, maybe it's not. You'll just have to see if you make me very angry." she snickered with a wink. In case the girls immediately became fearful, she shrugged and shook her head. "But, no, I do not breathe fire, i'm not a complete monster. See?" she opened her mouth wide to be examined. trust me, if I could breathe fire, the king and his son wouldn't be standing right now, sweetlings. she thought to herself.

She shifted slightly, sitting as comfortably as she could, her legs slightly apart; screw sitting 'ladylike' despite being in a dress. She'd endure this for as long as the carriage ride was necessary. "So! How'd the three of you little doves get into the whole serving business? Are you wards of the kingdom, orphans, bastards?" she inquired. They were children, not the fully grown monsters she'd been hunting. The least she could do was be civil to them, and if they were mistreated, she could perhaps find ways to manipulate them onto her side, or at the very least, help her escape.

"You'll just have to see if you make me very angry."

All three girls' eyes widened, but relief washed over them as Keaton revealed she was joking. Well, all except Beatrix who looked slightly disappointed. "Akbet lied," she muttered to herself.

Miriam perked up at the question. "Ah, well, Alya and I were born into servitude. Our mothers worked in the castle before it was discovered they had us with a human and we were...separated." Miriam's voice trailed off, now slightly slumped and staring at the floor. Alya also wore a somber expression, but it was well-hiddened by her long, dark bangs.

"And I was found in a turnip basket," Beatrix quipped, not quite sensing the atmosphere change.

"How'd'ya end up here? Do you have a family?" She asked, now leaning forward in her seat. Miriam made an annoyed expression and gave Beatrix a pointed look, which she ignored.

The young woman chuckled lightly at Beatrix's remark. When Miriam told the tale of her and Alya, however, her brow furrowed. To separate the children from their parents solely because of a human was.... wrong. And the wily one knew nothing of her own family. She just showed up in a basket. Not uncommon in the human realm either. Still, her heart went out to the three of them. "That's... unfair. I'm sorry you were separated from your mothers." she began. When she was asked about her own family, Keaton shifted uncomfortably in her seat.

"Well.... I ended up here because.... chidren you know what I am, right? Who I am? I have slain vampires. That much of the stories is true. The methods that they've said I've used, well, that's up for discussion. Nevertheless, I was captured. That's why I'm here." she said, taking on a stone-cold expression. She felt no reason to lie to them. They at least deserved to know what she'd done. "As for my family, yeah, I suppose I do have them... somewhere. But it's better off they think I'm dead than finding out what I'm doing now. I wasn't always a killer. I used to be a highborn girl. The young maid of House Augerstone, I was. I was, uhm.... betrothed, to another young man.... I was on my way to their land, as ways of sealing the alliance between our houses.... when we were ambushed." this part still made Keaton's blood curdle. It was never fun reliving that day. "My... my entire escort was slain.... I almost was too. But I was rescued.... by vampire hunters... taken back to their hideout, my wounds were treated, and I've been working with them ever since. So no girl has to go through that." she said awkwardly.

Keaton left out the bit of time between there where she got her ass handed to her on a daily basis during training, or how the first few kills made her absolutely sick with revulsion, because with time, she got better, and the killings got easier, especially if she told herself it was because the vampire bastards deserved it. If these girls were human, she might have. But they were only half human. And they were still servants.

And servants talked.
