I roll my eyes as I throw a dish towel back towards him, finishing my wine before wandering into the bathroom.

"Yeah, because I'll bite your fucking tongue out."

"That's just mean," I laugh, shaking my head as I sip at my wine. I clear my throat when I realize she's started undressing, my head dropping guiltily as I put my wine aside to preoccupy myself with my bag. I know it's illogical, but I find myself avoiding looking toward the bathroom though the sentiment makes me no less aware of her.

Once I've stripped, I test out the water to find it needs another minute before it's doable, groaning a bit as I grab a towel from the shelf above the toilet and wrap it around myself. Stepping back out, I head out into the living area to sink onto the edge of my bed, cutting on the small TV that sits on the table for some white noise. I've never been able to sit in silence for too long, and the static-y din of pre-war television does just enough to quell my anxiety. 

"You mind listening to this?" I ask absently, not bothering to look his way as I twist the knob to try and get a clearer picture.

"No, it's fine," I respond as I relax to the comforting static. "Do you mind if I have a bite to eat? I'm starved."

"Help yourself," I nod, shoving off the bed as I head back towards the bathroom. "Fix enough for me, too?"

"Will do," I respond as I take a long drink from my wine before getting up and heading to the small kitchen. The glass clinks as I put it on the counter and open the icebox to pull out one of the parcels of meat she's just got from Kray's. 

With Ljuba in the bathroom, I fall into an easy routine as I make my way around the kitchen, finding everything I need with ease as I prepare a small meal for us. The only gamble I find myself faced with is trying to guess what's contained in the various jars and cans in the cupboard without actually opening them. Finding one in particular, I decide to toss the dice and crack it open. Taking a sniff, I frown in disappointment. Beans. I had guessed creamed corn.

I can work with it, though. Pouring the beans into a pan, I turn the heat on and return to the meat searing in another pan. I can adjust the spices to suit the beans better. It's a little heartier than I'd intended before bed, but after living on road food for so long, it'll be a welcome change.

By the time I hear Ljuba finishing up in her shower, I've finished the food and begun dishing it up onto the mismatched flatware from the cupboard. I've even managed to roast up a couple of potatoes to round it off, a luxury I don't usually have in my own apartment since my oven doesn't work.

"Do you want butter or anything with your potatoes?" I call as I hear Ljuba getting out and cutting the water off.

"Butter is good," I call back, stepping out of the shower as I run the towel through my hair. "What all have you fixed?"

"One of the meats - I think the beef - some beans and roasted potatoes," I call back as I turn the stove off and gather the plates to bring them out into the sitting area. "I was aiming for peas, but got beans instead. I hope that's alright."

"No, that won't do." I grin, stepping out past him as I head towards the bed so I can get dressed. "Peas or nothing, you know that."

"It's your kitchen," I scoff, smiling back at her as I refill my wine before taking a seat. "What sort of person buys things besides peas? I swear, no regard for the blind!"

"Well, I haven't had any blind in here in months." I retort, tugging on my slacks before I grab my shirt and head towards the kitchen. "Last one just took off without a word, he's a real tart."

"Least I'm not a topless tart," I retort around a mouthful of food.

"Quit listening to my clothes, weirdo." I retort, pulling the shirt on as I refill my glass of wine as I head towards the table. 

I take a seat beside him, leaning over my plate as I inhale it fondly. "Thanks for cooking."

"Thanks for feeding," I smile as I hold up a forkful of food. "I don't know what you did for Kray, but I've never been able to get a decent cut of meat like this without paying an arm and a leg."

"He just likes me." I shrug with a smile, cutting into the meat as I drag it through the beans' gravy before taking a bite.

"That explains it," I nod through the mouthful of food as I cut into the meat again. "It's just like a man to give you his meat when he likes you."

"Shut up, you're being foul," I laugh, reaching over to knock his shoulder a bit before I return to my plate. "He's gotta be like 80, that's just... No."

"What?" I grin, taking a sip of my wine. "You don't like aged sausage? I hear it's the best. Real flavorful."

"That!" I nod, pointing at him as though he'd notice, "That's why Kray doesn't give you things."

"We both know I'd never talk like this to anyone else," I laugh as I dig into my potatoes. "Only you get the benefit of my horrible sense of humor."

"Yeah, right." I chuckle, shaking my head as I take another bite.

"Because Marnin Braddock is just the politest young man," I say mockingly, raising my wine towards him, "Poor blind sod."

"Yep," I smirk, holding my glass up in response to hers. "Never done no wrong, that boy. Couldn't see his way into trouble if he wanted to. Peeping Tom? Why he'd have to have workin' peepers for that!"

"I feel like you robbed kittens as a child," I remark, watching him curiously. "Stole candy. All that jazz."

"I did live in someone's basement for a whole year without their knowing," I respond with a chuckle. "Stole their food, clothes, blankets, anything I could get my hands on really. But before you go judging me, I would like to point out that I was six years old, orphaned, and recently blinded."

"Oh, I'm judging," I laugh, finishing off the last of my food before I shove away from the table. 

"You really milk that, don't you? Poor pitiful you, lucky sod. Handsome face and a blank stare, who could be afraid of you."
