Aldonza sat quietly and Kallixta felt the weight of that gaze. Shifting uncomfortably, her patience runs out, "What?"
Aldonza smiles, tickled with herself at getting the paladin to blink first. "I'm very proud of you. It's a considerable accomplishment. It required a lot of teamwork, I hear."
The final words allows the paladin something easier to respond to. "Yes. It took a crew, working together. It's not like you can just walk into the Frozen Halls and slay the Lich King by yourself. I had one of the least important roles. I just needed to do a bit of timely cleansing and keep from falling off the edge. We had Been Waiting a Long Time for That."
The human mage nods in agreement, "Still, it isn't something I could imagine doing." Of course, the human mage is a known coward.
Kallixta continues, "It seems like a dream, now. It's like we kept returning, fighting the same battles, hoping this time The Orbs would Whisper 'Congrats!' I had more than one dream about tangling with that Blood-Queen. You know, Once Bitten, Twice Shy."
Aldonza reaches across the table to pat the dwarf's should, "And now they call you a Kingslayer?"
Humility fights satisfaction, but finally Kallixta smiles with some pride showing, "Yeah."
Unable to stop herself, Aldonza adds a final tweak, "And you earned quite a bit of Glory for yourself as an Icecrown Raider!"
Echoing through Ironforge was the denial, "That's not why I did it!"
Note: For an RP-oriented guild that with the typical end-of-summer, end-of-expansion attendance issues, I still have some pride in this belated accomplishment. And I get a kick out of seeing the cowardly bank alt Aldonza riding that Protodrake, thanks to account sharing mounts. Aldonza is pleased for Kallixta, but big thanks to guildmate Lyss for riding herd on us cats!
