Her Imperial Condescension )-( Amrita Druse (
2012-09-07 01:11 am (UTC)
She laughs then, a sharp and loud sound. She claps once, drawing a pace closer.
"I could have you killed for that, you know," Amrita says, voice low and amused. It's less a threat than it is her making some sort of joke. "I did not have her disposed of. She's legitimately disappeared of her own devices, and there is not a single thing I have done to hurt her. Now, if I had... don't you think I would have done it better? Prettier?"
Aware of the consequences of killing either heiress, Amrita grins, mouth sharp with teeth. She may be prideful, she may be childlike, but she is not stupid. Everything would incriminate her if the beloved heiress were to die. Each dot would connect to form a line and a line would form revolt. Control is the point of everything and with no respect, with no fear in the peasants of Alternia, there would be none of that.
She steps lightly, almost giddy with the Demoness' anger. But there is no lie in her words. It might be hard to tell-- the Imperial Condescension herself is a woman woven with lies, woven with deceit-- but she is genuinely telling the truth. There is no point in lying to Megido, but she's not sure the other woman understands that yet.
