Highlander Raven Ficlet 1/1  
Another little scene for Highlander the Raven, hopefully the muses will prompt me to a full fic soon, but in the meantime there's this. Directly follows on from Not as Bad as I Thought

Important Questions

“So, Amanda, who is MacLeod?” Nick asked. The two of them were lying in bed, wrapped in each others arms, Nick casually stroking Amanda’s hair.

Amanda sighed. The question was becoming a recurring theme, and one that she consistently managed to dodge. But, right now she wasn’t in much of a position to duck out of anything. She chewed her lip thoughtfully.

“I assume from what Liam said that he’s Immortal. And, he must be…important to you. I just want to know,” Nick continued with a playful smile.

“If it’s just casual interest, why do you keep asking?” Amanda asked. Nick chuckled.

“Because you keep avoiding. Worried I’ll be jealous?”

Amanda made an indignant little noise in her throat before rolling over onto her stomach so she could look Nick in the eyes. She scrutinised him for a moment or two and then seemed to come to a decision.

“Okay, I’ll answer you,” she said.

The tone in her voice was resigned, but her calculating gaze and mischievous smile told Nick she was not waving a white flag. He waited for her to add the ‘but’.

“I’ll answer you when you can beat me with a sword,” Amanda added as she rolled off Nick and casually strutted toward the bathroom.

Nick gave a little growl of frustration and shook his head, but internally he was laughing.

Hee! How typically Amanda. It's one hell of a motivator though so I think she'd better watch out...

Yeah, especially with Nick's bloodysingle-mindedness. The muses haven't spoken yet, but I suspect that the next bit will be fun to write :)
