Allivia stormed out of sickbay, glad to be out of there, but mostly just angry. Wendy, Wendy... That girl was a thorn in her side. Everyone else in the palace feared her, but not the new girl, oh no. Luckily, Allivia had a disposable ace up her sleeve; it was high time Nicolae Kimby was gotten rid of. A good horse - even a young one - with a broken leg had to be shot eventually, no matter how fun it had been to ride before. She rapped on his door, loud enough to wake him if he was sleeping. When Nico opened the door for her, Allivia grimaced. He had clearly had too much to drink. Which... would make things significantly easier for her tonight.
"I didna wan' to see your ugly face tonigh'," said Nicolae, his words slurred.
Welp. Apparently it wouldn't be easier. "That's not very polite, Nico." She shoved past him and into his room.
"I'm drunk, woman, whaddya expect? I'll be hatin' myself in the mornin' anyway, migh' as well say wha's on my mind."
"Well, if you're already going to hate yourself tomorrow-" Allivia started stripping "-why not just add one more thing to the list of reasons why?"
Nicolae threw his hat at her, red in the face with anger. "You's a whore, 'Livia. Ou' me room. Now."
'You're drunk, you don't know what you wan-"
"I said GET OUT!" When she said no, Nico growled and marched toward her, totally intent on grabbing her and dragging her out. But the moment he got close enough, Allivia drew a dagger and stabbed Nico in the stomach. The boy cried out and doubled over, blood pouring from his torso, staining his shirt scarlet. "'Livia?"
Allivia grabbed his collar and pulled him forward, even as his knees buckled with pain. "You shouldn't have stepped on my foot, Nicolae. And you shouldn't have left me for Wendy. You're no longer of any use to me." With one last kiss, she let him drop to the floor and left him there to die.
