    The half-elf tilted her head, smiling at the sensation against her neck before leaning back against him, resting her cheek against the edge of his shoulder.

    'I tried when you went to see Korm. It's the reason that I asked what I did. I … I can't rest. The things I see are getting blurred. Like I'm moving backwards. I don't want to look any more.' She shut her eyes tightly. 'It's cowardly, but I don't want to see them again.'

    Jack frowned, holding her tighter. "Then you can look at me instead... as long as I ain't too hard on the eyes."

    Paladin didn't glance up, smiling faintly. It was getting harder to now. Her fingers travelled to brush across the fingerless stumps beyond his palm.

    'If it helps, I can hear you, too.'

    A half-arsed joke in a sorry situation.

    He snickered softly, closing his fingers about her hand. "Not as good at holdin' a tune as you."

    Paladin halted a second, glancing up in surprise.

    'I-I don't snore!' she said fervently. For once, her skin coloured.

    The gunslinger grinned at that, barring his teeth like fangs. "Says you."

    Paladin instantly covered her mouth and nose with her hands, fidgeting in her seat nervously.

    'Oh, really. That's not … oh, no. Does that mean when we're ambushed, I'm … this is a tactical issue! I'm giving out our location thanks to my nose!' she frowned, 'I-I mean coming from you, it's like a grumpy giant. D-does that mean I'm … oh, dear. I'm so sorry!'

    Jack barked a laugh, shaking his head. "A grumpy giant, huh?" He bit back a chuckle, kissing her instead.

    'The grumpiest-' Paladin's insistence was cut off by the gunslinger's kiss, but there as no complaint, pulling the man closer towards her. She let him go gently, kissing his nose playfully with a slight smile.

    Drat the man. He'd done it again.

    "Only with you." He leaned back comfortably, still smirking.

    She sighed wearily, clambering to sit on his lap promptly and moving her arms around his neck, peering at the man suspiciously.

    'This isn't because of that arrest before, is it? That soup seemed perfectly legitimate. Goodness knows what you were like with Rath.'

    Jack raised an eyebrow. "Legitimate'n tasty ain't one in the same."

    Paladin grinned slightly, looking away and tucking a loose strand of hair behind her ear.

    'That's why I kept you company. To forget how badly it tasted. It didn't stop your grumpiness, but ... I couldn't stand it either.'

    "'N here I thought I just smelled," he grunted, the corner of his mouth twitching upward.

    The half-elf smiled, leaning her head against the crook of his neck.

    'You do. It smells like … gunpowder. Like from one of your weapons. Then there's that … odd taint of brimstone.' She sat up quickly, her face colouring, 'I … I mean that-'

    She grumbled. She had no real excuse. She pressed her palm against her forehead.

    'Like brimstone.'

    The gunslinger resisted the urge to laugh when her cheeks changed shade, her face turning red as a tomato. "You're cute when you're awkward."

    Paladin frowned, jostling him gently as she gave him a shake.

    'Oh, hush. I'm not! I mean, am I? No, I can't be! I'm not! Am I? That's coming from the wrong person!'

    He blinked. "Wrong person?" Jack furrowed his brows, pausing for a moment before offering her a smirk. "Ah. Reckon you'd rather hear it from Rath." A sharp jolt of pain shot through his abdomen when he snickered, twisting in his torso like a knife.

    Paladin rolled her eyes, 'I'd sooner hear smoother compliments from a horse's backs-'

    She hesitated a moment before clambering from the gunslinger, his jolt of pain throwing her jokes from thought.

    'Jack?' her eyes dropped to his torso, 'What's the matter? What's wrong?'

    He shook his head, frowning. "Ain't nothin'. Just still a bit sore."
