fair maiden!

Sir* Arel of Keltema has heard there is a dragon nearby who has recently captured a maiden passing fair. Arel enjoys both maidens passing fair and the rescue thereof; thus, his course of action is obvious. He goes to rescue her! His trusty steed carries him swiftly to the dragon's mountain lair. His trusty cat sits in his lap while they travel. It's a good arrangement all around.

Once the lair is reached, Ari stands proudly and shouts traditional challenges. "Foul beast! I hear tell you have kidnapped a fair maiden! Release her or suffer my wrath!"

*sort of

Another knight* pokes his head out the entrance to the cave. "Dragon's not home," he says. "Neither's the princess. I think she's gone to visit the neighbors or something, I'm waiting. Did you want this one particularly? I don't mind letting you go first when they're back."

"Yeah, sure. I was just passing through anyway and didn't want her to languish."

"Yep. School, sword on the shoulders, the whole deal. Are you not? This may present a problem if you're not a knight or a prince and you rescue a princess and then have to hash something out with her parents."

"If you bypass the parents you're probably in good shape."

"Not right now, but I usually don't have too much trouble even sans heroic rescues. Actually, the only person I've ever rescued was my cousin. My male cousin who was taken by a very nearsighted dragon."

"My cousin's attached to a duke, and I don't know of anybody else with his nearsighted carrying-off problem, but best of luck."

"It seems like that would be slightly awkward what with us waiting for a dragon and a princess," Jann points out.

"If you just have a checklist with an empty box next to 'knight' in your back pocket I can point you to one of my friends who's generally keener on boys than I am, but, eh, if we both strike out with the princess you could talk me into killing some time."

"It's not a challenge, really. I lean very much to girls. When there are no girls to be had I get less picky, that's all. You're very cute but do not appear to be a girl."

"You have! It's very gratifying."

"Hi, Leo. You a witch?" asks Jann.
