    how is my little protege doing? [am-am]

    Post by Tamar Batel on Sat Aug 16, 2014 6:25 pm

    Tamar was happy with how things were going lately, very happy indeed. She had struck a deal with the young overloridian of Solas to build a power plant to supply energy to Dian, thus ending years and years of trade between Dian and Deilig. Now that Kole Roden had nothing to hold over her head, she could cut off his resources and revel in his indignation. Petty? Maybe. Immensely satisfying? Definitely.

    Not only that, but despite her disastrous first impression, Amerie was turning out to be a pretty good ally. In fact, Tamar might even go so far as to call her a friend. She even started to looking forward to Amerie coming to her for advice, even if her questions were occasionally kind of naive.

    Recently, Tamar had received word that the power plant was complete. She decided it would probably be a good time to stop by and see the finished product so that she could enjoy her newest success. She was meeting with Amerie there today.

    "You know, I had my doubts when I first met you," Tamar said to Amerie, taking a look at the plant from the outside. "But you really did well, Amerie."

    When Tamar gave her a compliment, Amerie couldn't help but beam. "Thank you!" she said happily. Whenever Tamar told her she was doing a good job, she got all warm inside. It was so nice to have someone she could trust who would tell her she was doing well.

    "I couldn't have done it without you," she said truthfully. She admired Tamar so much. She was so strong and smart, and she always had really good advice. "And I'm so happy it turned out so nice!"

    Amerie and her staff had been working really hard to get the power plant done in time. They had been on a strict deadline because Tamar had only had so much oil left. And they had made it! They beat that jerkface Kole. She felt sorta smug about it.

    "I forgot to tell you!" Amerie said, realizing suddenly that she hadn't told Tamar about the confrontation that had happened with Kole. "Kole came to visit me the other day!"

    Tamar smiled proudly, but that smile quickly disappeared and was replaced with a look of surprise when Amerie told her that Kole had paid a visit. She turned to look at Amerie in disbelief, who was looking surprisingly blase about the fact that she had just had a run-in with a presumably angry Kole. She'd expect a girl like Amerie to be more of a nervous wreck after that particular encounter. In fact, a few times she'd half-expected to get notice any day from Amerie that she'd been cowed into ending the project.

    "What? When?" she demanded. "Are you alright? Did he threaten you?"

    If he had threatened Amerie in any way, then maybe Tamar should pay him a visit next.

    "Well he came barging into my house," Amerie explained, looking a little more nervous now that Tamar's demeanor had changed so much. "He wanted me to cut off ties with you." Amerie thought back to how Kole had just shown up in her backyard, with a scared looking Mellan.

    "And he was a real jerk about it, too! But I told him no and he left."

    Maybe Amerie was tougher than she looked...and acted. "He just left?" Tamar asked, still surprised. In the nearly ten years she had known Kole, she had never known him to just accept "no" as an answer. He always had to throw a temper tantrum about it. "Well, good for you, standing up to him. I never would have thought you had it in you."

    "Do you think he'll come back?" Amerie asked, suddenly unsure. She'd been so high on a million different emotions after he left she'd never thought he would actually make good on the threat he made as he left.

    "It's possible," Tamar replied, nodding. She looked around the grounds of the power plant. "He probably holds a grudge...In fact, I'd like to get some extra security around here, I think. Just in case."

    She could supply some Dian clio to guard the plant from any kind of sabotage attempts. It wouldn't be much extra effort and it would open up some new jobs for her clio. She wasn't sure it would be 100% necessary, but she'd hate to not take the precaution and then have something happen.

    Amerie nodded. That was a good idea! "If you want, you could send some applications over and I can have my adviser look through them." They already had a small security branch, but it was never a bad thing to hire more!

    "He told me I would regret it. Continuing to help you. Or maybe hew as talking about me making him leave." Amerie wasn't sure.

    "No, I'll handle the security," Tamar replied, waving her hand dismissively. It wasn't that she didn't trust Amerie to handle the security. It was just that she trusted herself more.

    She frowned when Amerie told her about Kole's threat. What a low-life asshole, threatening a young girl because she refused to give in to his whims. One of these days his disgusting behavior was going to come back to bite him in the ass. She could not wait for that day. "You won't regret either," Tamar assured her. "And if he tries to make you, let me know and I'll make sure he regrets it."

    Amerie smiled at Tamar. She felt so much safer knowing that she was on her side. Amerie would never want to cross Tamar.

    They walked inside the plant and Amerie showed Tamar around. The Dian overloridian had stopped by a few times during the building, but it had been a few weeks since her last visit. The plant was now in full swing, generating electricity and being all around awesome.

    "Ta-da!" Amerie said, throwing her arms open. This plant was her biggest achievement so far, even though Tamar had helped her with the plans.

    The plant met every one of Tamar's expectations. She felt like she had scored a major victory against Kole. What a good decision this had been.

    And you said it was a bad idea, she said to Telpin smugly.

    I never said that! Telpin insisted. I said it was a gamble, which it was. It just happened to pay off.

    And thank gods it had. Without Amerie, Tamar and all of Dian would be, well, fucked. "This wouldn't be possible without you, you know," she told Amerie. Telpin waited for the typical backhanded part of Tamar's infamous backhanded compliments, but to his surprise it never came.

    Amerie blushed a little, her smile growing. "I couldn't have done any of it without you," she admitted. "I am so thankful I met you. I don't know what I would have done if I hadn't..."

    Probably ruin all of Solas.

    You're doing great now! Caviar told her gently. And Tamar is right--you really helped her out! Things are going better than ever!

    "Thank you for everything," Amerie told Tamar, looking up at her.

    Aww. Now give her a hug, Telpin said teasingly.

    Oh, quiet, Tamar said, though she was smiling as she looked down at Amerie. Yeah, it had been a huge gamble, but things had actually turned out pretty great. She had a new good friend and ally, Dian didn't want for anything, and she didn't have to deal with Deilig or Kole anymore for trade. Life was good.
