When he had declared his statement about Venom, Maverick had no idea how what sort of painful memories he would be dredging up from the Empress' past. Though the topic of her family seemed to be a heavy subject, he had managed to make her smile with his playful toast to her deceased sire. This time, however, the answers he received did not seem worthy of a jesting poke. Venom let him peek into her past, into the life she had been given and led, the choices she'd made and the consequences of each. She told him of her mother's incestuous breeding with her uncle that resulted in her half-siblings Chimera and Siren. Almost on reflex, Maverick glanced back towards the castle. The giant black and white brute that had been glaring at him and had taken Venom aside for a private conversation—no doubt about the ruffian that was currently courting his sister—was the product of incest within the Klein-Abraxas family. But that hadn't been the end of her story. Beyond her mother's extramarital relations with her own brother, Venom had also been forced to fight her own sister when the woman challenged Venom for her and her children's family name. Maverick stared at Venom, brow creasing with concern as she explained how she'd been forced to use violence to subdue that rebellion in her sibling.

Venom concluded her story with a sip of her drink, and Mav gave a hefty sigh and a shake of his head. "No way in hell I'm letting you drink alone after that one," he remarked, lapping at his own drink along with the Empress. Misery loved company, after all, and drinking in good company always made the bitterest of pills easier to swallow. Venom made her own statement then, declaring that she was not the first lady he had tried to seduce. Once more his roguish grin crept across his face with a husky chuckle. "Guilty," he confessed, then gave a quiet yet pensive hum when she claimed he loved fast and hard. "Guilty again." But then she asserted that he had loved a girl once before—truly loved her—and that she had left him and broken his heart. Maverick's grin shrunk a touch, still lingering like a ghost on his expression, but his teal eyes had shifted, glossing over with long distant memories. Without a word, the navy and white brute brought his cup up to his lips and drank away the memories. "Guilty," he murmured for the third time, less mirthful than the first two utterances.

Well, Venom had shared the painful details of her own past, so it was only fair for him to do the same. "I was younger… stupider… Thought I’d found ‘the one’ when I met her. Her name was Reina, and she was every bit as wild and reckless as I was. I thought that meant we were going to run off together, have a lifetime of adventures and be totally free to burn as hot as we wanted." Maverick released a sigh as he took another drink just for the need of more alcohol in his blood, already beginning to feel the warm and wobbly effects hitting his body. "Turns out we were just doomed to burn out instead. I woke up one morning and she was gone. No note, no explanation, not even a scent trail to follow. She’d covered her tracks when she decided she’d had her fun with me and it was time to cut me loose." The dire brute gave a sardonic little laugh and smirked at how foolish the younger, naive Maverick had been, how recklessly he’d left his heart unguarded. But that was one harsh lesson he would never forget—nobody could hurt you if you never let them get close.

The game came back to his turn, and now Maverick had the opportunity to shift the mood of the game back into a more fun topic, one he thought would bring a lovely shade of red to the monochrome fae’s features. "All right, Ven, let’s kick this up a notch." A wolfish grin crept over his lips as smoldering, tipsy-glazed eyes peered into the sunset depths of the Ashen alphess’ soul. "I’m betting that despite all your love for him, your ex-husband never truly satisfied you when you were sharing a bed. I’d wager there’s a whole side to you that you’ve never showed anyone, things you want to explore and do, but you keep it repressed for fear of how that might make others see you, when really you've been yearning to let your inner animal loose and explore yourself since you discovered romance." That playful grin shifted to an even more naughty smirk, his sly gaze briefly dipping to the end of her muzzle. "I bet you could do some wonderful things with that tongue." Was he trying to fluster Venom and make her flush? Yes, yes he was. But there was also a genuine curiosity behind the statement. How long had Venom been inhibiting herself for the sake of duty and appearances?

There were no teasing words after her story was concluded and Venom took her sip of a drink. Maverick drank along with her, obviously moved by the glimpse into her past. Venom smiled softly up at him before making her own assertion, which was apparently correct in almost every way. Mav showed how the event affected him as his expression and voice dropped with every point. As he drank Venom placed a white paw over his own before he explained the events in greater detail.

Venom’s sunset gaze lingered on his features as he brought up old and difficult memories. She was likely one of the first girls he had known, he fell head over heels, and imagined the two of them were made for each other. But she had left him without a word once she was finished with him. At least Venom had been broken up with, Hattori hadn’t just disappeared from her side one night, then again he hadn’t been hers since before the long night. The signs had been there, but Venom had held so tightly to his vow. The both of them had loved and lost and struggled together now.

Thankfully Maverick felt the creeping doom and as he brought his gaze back up to hers turned the conversation with his roguish grin. He returned the smile to his features as he warned her about his next question. He knew exactly what he was asking. "Ha!” She couldn't help her reaction, and despite it, Mav did succeed in bringing a blush to her features as her mind returned to the intimate moments she shared with Hattori. He hadn’t left her unsatisfied, but their private moments had been few and far between. He’d never been a soft man, and their love making was anything but a gentle experience. Adventurous was not the way she would describe him.

"Maybe you are partially correct, I was never unhappy in the rare event he was with me.” She admitted to him, keeping to her vow of being honest. Venom had averted her gaze as she recalled the private aspect of her previous marriage. "I suppose we’ll both have to find out just how caged I’ve been.” She offered him mysteriously as she took her drink, but spit right after as he mentioned the talents of her tongue.

Perhaps it was the alcohol getting to her, maybe she was a little tired, or maybe she was just truly letting loose here beside Maverick. She giggled uncontrollably and coughed up the liquor she had inhaled. She struggled to catch her breath for a moment before she moved on to her next assumption. "You’ve already thoroughly thought about all the compromising positions you want to show me.” She raised her brow as she tried to subtly catch her breath.

The ginger touch of Venom’s white-gloved paw resting atop his own brought a small smile of comfort to Maverick’s features. He appreciated her empathy and support, but those wounds had long since turned to scars, callouses on his heart that had remained impervious to all future advances of the fairer sex—all up until now, it seemed. They were unified in the shared pain of heartbreak, hers more fresh than his, but both equally devastating to the abandoned. Mav silently wondered how many nights Venom had stayed awake nursing her broken heart amidst tears and sobs. He would never admit to the pain he'd been left in when his lover had abandoned him out of the blue, how often he fell into a fitful sleep just in hopes that maybe when he woke up she'd be there again, only for fresh tears to fall when he found himself alone in the morning. It was all in the past, but gods damn, did the memories still hurt...

Fortunately, the pain didn't last long as those memories that felt like a lifetime ago were banished by Venom's sharp laugh at his next assumption of her. Her radiant smile, that flush of color across her cheeks, that had been the exact reaction he'd been hoping for! Maverick suddenly found himself wondering about the Empress' bedroom habits, both with him and with her ex-husband. There was an innate sort of male envy, wondering how he stacked up to her former lover. Maybe he'd have to ask her sometime, if this proved to be a frequent thing for the two of them to do together. After all, what male didn't enjoy having his ego—amongst other parts of himself—stroked by a drop dead sexy lady? Venom admitted that he was partially correct, and while Hattori had never made her unhappy with his performance, it had been a rare occurrence for the two to be intimate. Her remark about them finding out how caged she'd been intrigued him, the dire brute already imagining all the things Venom might be into if given a chance to explore herself. Still, he'd guessed partially right, so he'd take his partial victory and watch her drink. The comment about the dexterous talents of her serpent tongue put a stop to that, however, as Venom spit up the mead in shock.

"Whoa, sorry! Didn't mean to get you that good with that, Ven!" Maverick apologized with a rakish smile, gently rubbing his date's back with a large paw while she coughed up the inhaled liquor and caught her breath. "Ah! Doesn't count unless you swallow. Remember that, Ven," he teased her, the thinly veiled double entendre of his words bringing a sly grin to the renegade's face. Not missing a beat, Venom made the assumption that the vagabond brute had already thoroughly imagined all of the compromising positions he wanted to show and do to her. A sound crossed between a snort and a scoff left the dire and he rolled his eyes. "That was an obvious one," he remarked, but still took a good long drink anyway. She had technically guessed correct, even if it was low hanging fruit. Maverick set his half empty cup back down, watching the way the world began to sway gently around him. He was pushing well into the tipsy category now, feeling the effects of the alcohol and enjoying them immensely. It was a pleasant and warm sensation, and while it was becoming more difficult to keep playing their game, he wasn't drunk just yet.

"Of course I've thought about all the positions I wanna show you," Maverick admitted, shooting Venom a lecherous, crooked grin. "It's my favorite way to pass the time when you're not with me. Thinking about things I wanna do to you, Ven... it's loads of fun." Teal eyes gleamed with a lusty fire, chuckling while he leaned in closer to gently nuzzle the Empress' cheek and up just behind her ear, moving his muzzle slow along the edge of the delicate appendage. Just a little bit of teasing to remind his lady what prize awaited her at the end of their game. But right now, it was his turn to go again. "You've also had thoughts about me, about the positions you want to put me in, but also the positions you want me to put you in. You want to be the alpha in your bedroom, but you also want to be dominated too, just held down and loved silly from dusk til dawn til you can't walk or think straight." Mav decided to go for the double whammy with his assertions, shooting Venom a devilish grin as he added, "You're also looking forward to all the other things you can try with me, all the new parts of yourself you haven't gotten to play with much. You want me to do those things to you and you don't want me to hold anything back from you to try."

Maverick glanced up at the enormous castle surrounding them, then at the large wisteria they were lying beneath and a flair of naughtiness was added to his grin. "I bet you wouldn't do anything to stop me either if I tried to have my way with you right here, right now, in the garden." As if demonstrating his point, Maverick shifted to lean against her side more, curling his larger body around her supple, svelte frame while a powerful foreleg lifted to drape across her back, keeping Venom held tight to his body. A little bit of physical affection to get the blood flowing and the fire stoked. After all, teasing and playing with the Empress could only lead to more fun things for him in store this evening, and a much more satisfying release when they were both fully spent and done.

Being together like this made moving past the heartache that much faster, but the now copious amount of alcohol she had was the driving factor. Forgetting was much easier, distracting herself with her wedding crashing date, was everything she needed to feel like she could move past the hurts done to her. Maverick as well. They didn’t have to be haunted tonight, this was for joy and celebration. For them and for the happy couple.

While they were skirting the edge of propriety already sneaking out here on their own, she hadn’t quite expected him to be quite so honest. Surprise took her and she spit her drink, and however apologetic Maverick’s words were she didn’t believe he was sorry at all. Not with that grin playing over his features and not about the double meaning behind his words as he encouraged her to take a replacement drink of her beverage.

"You are absolutely incorrigible.” As she teased him, Maverick turned around and voiced his disappointment in her question. She’d given her deepest observation, the liquor had a tighter hold of her than Mav. The Empress was quite inebriated, she just hadn't done the stand up test yet. She wasn’t going to have many deep dives into his psychology anymore tonight. "I didn't realize I’d made such an impression.” She did realize though, he might not have been fully drunk but he was completely honest with her. Pushing his boundaries as he went on.

He made her blush further as he nuzzled against her cheek and caressed up to her ear after she made up for her last drink. He whispered his next assertion there close to the sensitive skin, making it burn where his breath touched her. She turned red but mostly from the trust, she had thought about their time together, and everything they’d held back with because she was injured. He was right though, and while sober she might not have admitted. Then again he might not have asked unless they were this deep in the bottle.

But they were that deep in the bottle and he had asserted his assumption. The way he spoke sent shivers over her skin and heat followed after. "I may have…” She whispered back, but her inhibitions were leaving her, she wanted to be just as honest. Still, long held habits were hard to break and instead of verbally affirming every word he said, she took another long swig of the mead.

Maverick wasn’t done yet though, after he spared a glance at the castle he went on, inching closer he leaned heavily against her side as he warned her. Asserting that she would put up no real fight if he tried to take her here and now. He wrapped his arm along her back, holding her tightly to him. The heart he already stoked growing further, there was no one out here beyond them, if they were quiet no one would be any wiser to their naughty antics. Just contemplating the brazen recklessness excited the prim and proper empress.

"No, I don’t think I would,” There may have been some fight had Venom not wanted the feeling of him surrounding her. Sunset eyes lifted to his features, still taken aback by the look of adoration he wore when he looked at her. Like he hadn’t seen the gorgeous woman at the party, like he hadn’t always had his choice of a lady, like she was the only woman in the world. Her carefree smile remained on her features as she spoke, her final, and easiest guess. "You have every intention of ‘having your way with me.’” Her grin pulled back at the corners, "And I think you should.”
