That's a hard one

Oddly, Kit's dismay at his miss made his own disappointment feel smaller. He still wasn't happy that his arrow had neatly sailed over top of the target entirely, but at least the commiseration eased away the sting of failure.

Then she asked her question, and he bit his lip in consideration. "You don't ask the easy ones, do you?" he asked rhetorically, more to buy a few seconds to consider his options than to avoid answering. "I'm not really partial to any of them particularly, but I'm going to go with blue. Not like Aladren blue," he added quickly, worried another Crotalus might overhear and fear House disloyalty, "but like the sky on a clear sunny day." Favorite colors didn't really need justification, but he thought his was pretty obvious just by its association.

"Next arrow?"

            Curious. It appeared that the arrow met its mark, but it was further away from where hers was. Had Winston intentionally allowed her another question or was he showing that he could make his mark?... more

              Winston gave her a moment to come up with a question, then nodded in approval for the one she came up with. "Excellent question," he complimented. "Um," he considered his answer carefully. "Are you... more

                Kit had thought that her question wouldn't require a question in turn, but she had to admit that Winston had left her a little flustered. Which one did she want to know more? "Well, if you born into... more

                  "That makes it easier," Winston admitted, "in that it introduces fewer variables, but harder because it opens up all of history instead of confining me to just when my family was well off, assuming... more
