circumitus: This is drunk and confused... (this is worse than naked and afraid)

life is a game for the fool

“Sure you’re ready for this?”

“Was born ready.”

Orion’s fingers clasped around the palm of her hand. Her fist coiled around his own. Their elbows propped over the flat wooden surface of the dinner table. “That’s got to be the most human thing I’ve heard you say recently, Rey.” He peeled back a toothy grin.

The muscles all up her arm constricted. No matter how hard her brother pushed, he would have an easier time moving a mountain than shifting the weight of Rey’s arm.

That didn’t stop him from trying, though. He kept at it until he shook and his face turned red while she watched him, unmoving, unwavering.

On the plus side, Orion Gideon was not a sore loser.

The back of his hand slammed against the side of the table.

“Best two out of three?” He didn’t even wince when Rey let go. If he had been a normal person, the force she had used would’ve broken his wrist. Even if she had, it would take Orion three times as fast to recover.

One of the perks of not being human.

“Beat you fair,” she said.
