The grin grows wider as Jocelyn catches her feint and dodges appropriately, a proud look on Prism's face as Jocelyn continues to learn. She just catches the jab from Jocelyn, deflecting with her elbow and sidestepping to the ride - if Josie's attacking, well.

It's time to take it up a notch.

Prism spins with the sidestep, bringing her leg up and around. If she aims it right, she'll catch Jocelyn's ankle, sending her flying onto the ground on her back - though Jocelyn does have the chance to dodge, Prism's response time affording her the window.

One moment she's standing with one arm outstretched, the next she's beginning to look up at the sky as her ankle's swept out underneath her. In a moment of panic and instinctual reaction, she grabs the nearest thing to her as she falls--which just so happens to be her sparring partner. Hitting the ground without enough force to do actual harm, it nevertheless knocks some wind out of her, causing Jocelyn to just blink and breathe as she lies on the floor.

Prism gives a small yelp as she’s grabbed while Jocelyn falls, but tries to work it to her advantage. Her leg is planted on the other side of Jocelyn as they go down - there’s a moment when they hit the rooftop where they’re nose-to-nose, chest-to-chest, before Prism pulls back a bit and sits up slightly on top of her. Wherever her hands landed, Prism follows them with her own, grabbing them by the wrists, before holding them overhead in a mock-pin that’s actually fairly easy to escape from. Shaking herself out of the stupor of falling, she grins down at the girl beneath her, cheeky with a hint of amusement in her eyes -

”And that’s why both of us need to expect surprise attacks.”

Jocelyn didn't react as her hands were grabbed and pinned above her head.

Prism was straddling her hips, and she could feel the heady warmth of the hummingbird faunus more intimately than she had before. "Prism, you're..." she starts, before her eyes widen, taking in every visible inch of Prism's form. Her thin yet muscled arms, a testament to the amount of effort she's put into her training, travel upward to even more impressive shoulders, amplified by her additional appendages. The iridescent feathers catch the rising sun perfectly, twinkling and sparkling on her slightly flared wings, which travel down to a surprisingly delicate collarbone. That leads down to...

"Gorgeous." Jocelyn breathes, eyes raking over Prism's body. Making no attempt to break free, she simply remained stunned on the floor.

...gorgeous.

…gorgeous?

Prism stares down at Jocelyn as her eyes obviously rake over her form, blinking as she’s checked out. Her spill of blond hair forms a halo around a sweet face, tempting lips, pretty purple eyes- all fixated on her skinny form, nearly drowning in pure want.

Josie, her friend, teammate - Jocelyn-

After a beat or two of awkward silence, Prism nearly erupts backwards - scrambling off Jocelyn, landing on her ass as she scuttles backwards to put a few feet of space between them. Prism stares her down, a heady flush covering her face, still staring wide-eyed. Too many things to say, so many things to, and Prism tries to hold her tongue, bury the voice, but the question still bubbles up, tinged with shock, confusion, and the the barest hint of hope. ”J-Josie..?

Slowly, ever so slowly, Jocelyn's brain registers how embarrassed she is to be caught in such a compromising position, but it isn't until Prism utters her name that she has any reaction. Her face changed color so quickly it put a chameleon to shame, while her heartbeat skyrocketed past the moon. "I-it wasn't what it looked like!" she stammers to Prism in absolute denial. "C-can we just f-forget about that?"

"No."

The words slip past Prism's lips before she properly registers them, blinking in surprise for a moment at her own bluntness. She waits a moment, taking in a breath and letting it out as a small sigh - recollecting herself and putting on her best "I'm the leader and I know what I'm doing." face. Sometimes you need to fake it 'till you make it.

"Jocelyn, I - I don't think that's something we should just slip by. I really do appreciate the compliments, they're..." She turns a bit sheepish at this, rubbing the back of her head. "They're not something I hear often, so it's - it's nice, so don't worry about it. But like - that was, well, a really... intimate stare, if that makes sense? So I just want to make sure everything's okay between us - I didn't like, cross any lines by getting too up-close and personal." The fact she manages to finish her words without her voice wavering is a small victory, chewing on her bottom lip as she looks down at the roof.

"Uh, no?" Jocelyn responds, looking both flustered and confused. "Admittedly, I may have overdone it there but it's literally not what it looked like--it was just a spur of the moment. Why do you keep saying stuff like there's bad blood between our families or something? There's not a ancient feud I need to know about, is there?" Sitting upright, she rubs the point of her arms where they were pinned and glances at Prism's "hardcore" face in slight nervousness.

"I don't have enough family left for there to be any feud, Jocelyn." Prism's humorless attempt at a joke is evident, before she takes another breath - sitting up and crossing her legs, trying to relax the expression on her face. "Overdoing it might be a good word, but like seriously - these compliments are coming like, all the time? You rambled for a good half a minute about how cute and thoughtful I was earlier, then the gorgeous compliment - I dunno, it's just kinda like, a lot to take in. I don't mind, trust me, just - yeah."

There's a change to Prism's face as she rubs at her wrists, a look of concern in her eyes. "I didn't like, hurt you did I? I thought my grip was light enough...."

"Don't joke about that."

Jocelyn's face is solemn, a far cry from the two personas she was presenting moments ago. Assuming a more rigid position, she stares Prism down. "That's the reason why you feel like it's a lot, isn't it? You've had little experience of people you love giving you words like these." At this, her face softens and there's a visible smile. "That's why I'm going to make it my goal to pamper you, Prism Skylark - I'm going to make up for all the experiences you've lost, starting from now. And that includes lots of complementing, so you better get used to it."

There's a moment as Prism blinks in slight shock, taking in Jocelyn's words, her refusal to let her joke - before the expression softens, and a small smile graces her face alongside the blush (which honestly, hasn't really gone down). "...I... I'm not- well, don't really have a proper response for that, uh, but I won't really argue against... being pampered. C-can't promise I'll g-get used to it anytime soon, th-though." She's gone a bit sheepish now, rubbing the back of her head and looking away, biting her lip as she tries to decide on something.

"Could start by... coming here, maybe?" She manages to get the words out, still somewhat read - opening her arms in invitation.

"Ah, see? Not so hard to understand after all, is it?" Jocelyn teases, getting to her feet and walking up to Prism, before sinking into her welcoming embrace. In Prism's ear, she murmured, "The fact you couldn't muster up a response only proves my point. No-one should be lacking of mere praise, especially since they're so easy to give." She nudged the faunus's neck softly before continuing, "And I'm not doing this for show - I truly believe what I say and see those qualities in you."

Prism buries herself in her friend's shoulder with a small noise, enjoying the body contact with the other women - closing her eyes and simply letting herself rest there. It's a quiet, careful moment, but Prism lets herself listen to Jocelyn's words, an almost-inaudible murmur of thanks on her lips. "I can't promise to believe you, at least for a little while but - I won't argue. It's a starting place. Thanks for not giving up."

There's a brief moment, before Prism relaxes even further - just kind of letting herself sag onto Jocelyn, a notable amount of tension draining from her form in the embrace as she rests her body weight against the taller woman. Her wings droop as well, stretching out a bit - letting her guard down, just enjoying the moment for what it was.

Making a small noise of content, agreement and enjoyment Jocelyn shouldered Prism's light body weight without complaint, keeping her back straight in contrast to Prism's limp form yet providing a comforting and reliable cushion of sorts. As she did so, she watched the sun emerge from the clouds like a new-born chick hatching from an egg, before dropping her gaze back onto Prism, noting with pleasure the release of tension and the relaxing posture they assumed. "It was definitely worth waking up to find you." Jocelyn whispered.

"...I'm glad you did, too." Her words are quiet, a little muffled by Jocelyn's shoulder - the words grateful but careful. Almost curled around Jocelyn's form, she's missing the sunrise, but doesn't seem to particularly mind - instead perfectly happy to remain cuddled against her teammate. "...you're so much softer than I am."

The words slip out without meaning to, and Prism blinks at her own errant thoughts - but lets them go with a snort, staying in the embrace all the same. "I think I'll... call in sick for classes today. I haven't really slept in three days, I... think, time gets a bit blurry after awhile, and well - I need to try to catch up, even if it's just in little naps throughout the day. Besides, I still have a commission to finish if I want to afford my ammo cache this month."
