Imagine a young Puck deciding to show off for a rather lovely lady friend he meets during Elysium. He spends the evening turning on the charm, earning a giggle here and there as the girl leans on his every word, and eventually sneaks away with her to give her a ‘private tour’ of the Summer Court. He takes her through all the open venues of the castle, and then some of the more private ones, entertaining her with stories of ghostly moaning and hushes whispers that seem to come from nowhere down certain corridors and around dark corners.
“Strange things happen here in Arcadia, m’lady,” he informs her with a devious smile, taking her hand and starting to lead her around another corner down one of the less traveled corridors, “You’d be amazed what you might see.”
Abruptly, though, he draws to a halt as someone clears their throat very clearly behind him, and swivels his head around to look as a tall shadow falls over them. The girl gives a squeak of alarm and ducks behind Puck, whose eyes widen as he finds none other than Lord Pointy Ears himself standing over them; arms folded, eyebrows raised.
“Robin,” Oberon says calmly.
Puck gives a meek smile. “M’lord,” he returns cheerfully.
Oberon’s eyebrows merely rise a couple inches higher, and he points back towards the main hallway, issuing a silent command.
“Yes, sir,” sighs Puck, giving a dramatically forlorn look before guiding his female friend back the way they’d come.
Oberon watches them go, hiding his amusement. Once they’re out of earshot, Puck leans in to mutter in the girl’s ear, “Pity we got caught. I was going to give you an exclusive peek into where those ghostly moans come from.”
He gives her a sly smile and wink, earning another giggle as she leans into him.
