"I think Shireth likes that nasty streak of his, compliments her own tendency to be crass at times I suppose. Or maybe she feels she can calm his more unappealing side? Either way she's quite content and pleased with herself for picking Wraith this time." I'ent looked over at the two dragons and sighed, confident she'll pick him every time Wraith chased her from now on. Unless he stops chasing then she may get angry and spur him. At this point I'ent didn't know what the future would hold.
He snapped his attention fully onto Locke when he asked if he could ask a question. Seeing no reason not to let him I'ent nodded. Once Locke told him what was on his mind I'ent wished he had said no, he couldn't ask his question. Then again Locke would have asked anyway, I'ent was pretty ceratin of that.
"I...you mentioned that before," I'ent responded, his thoughts in turmoil once more. How did he explain why he had been hesitant to sleep with him without risking sounding like a complete fool? "That Kent was fine with you being with others... but is he really? He loves you and doesn't want to lose you, maybe he's saying he's fine with it because he doesn't want to lose you?"
I'ent didn't plan to turn the conversation away from his own feelings and reasons for not wanting to be with Locke intimately but when he mentioned Kent was alright with it, he latched onto it. He didn't know Kent anywhere near as well as Locke and had no evidence that Kent was in any way unhappy with Locke being with other people flightlust or not. For all he knew Kent was glad for a break from Locke, or enjoyed being with other people too. In truth he would hate to given in to his desires only to learn Kent hated Locke being with anybody else but was too afraid to lose him to speak out. He knew Locke would be hurt if Kent was hurt and turning Locke's thoughts to a hypothetical reason for Kent being fine with him sleeping with others was easier than trying to explain his own mess of feelings right now.
