"I did so," I retort as I push the bag back on the bench and lean my weight against it to keep her from kicking it off again. "I left a note."

I shake my head before thumping his knuckle, "No, you didn't. I looked. Liar."

"Okay, maybe I didn't," I respond with a pout. "But I thought about it! I really did, but I got so excited, Ljubie! The wall on the South end of the boneyard finally gave out! It was ripe for the picking, I had to go or I'd have missed all the good stuff. And there was so much good stuff."

"You're still a jerk." I grin a bit at his excitement, glancing down at the bag curiously. "So what'd you get me?"

"I don't know, I can't see it," I respond with a smirk as I take her curiosity as permission to sit down. Pulling the bag into my lap, I begin digging around in one of the side pockets to find the little bauble I had saved for her. "It could just be some garbage, who knows, but it feels neat."

I watch as he digs into the bag to retrieve the item, glancing up at him occasionally before he hands it to me. My eyes widen as I look down at the brooch, the cool metal rough against my fingers. Enamel colors the bee and beehive, beads dangling as honey from the bottom. Another immaculate gift from the seemingly oblivious Marnin. 

"Well, it's hideous," I tease, still inspecting it as I nudge him with my elbow, "You're really awful at this."

"Damn, I guess I should find another job," I sigh heavily before cocking my head as I reach forward to pick a string on her guitar. "And this whole time, people have been paying me for trash. I hope they don't find out."

"They'll run you out of the city," I grin, watching him as I tuck the brooch into my pocket. "Poor blind man like yourself, you wouldn't last long."

"Nope," I sigh as I grab her glass and bring it to my lips to take a sip. "It would be up to you to protect me. So I can keep bringing you hideous things."

"So how was your trip?" I ask, twisting to look up at him as I nudge his side with my shoulder, "Was it so awful you decided to never leave again?"

"Even worse," I respond as I nudge her back. "So bad that I'll need to sleep at your place tonight. Otik will have turned my heat off while I was gone, and it'll take him a day or two to get it back on and I could really do with someplace warm and dry right now."

"Oh, you can't. I've a roommate." I nod with a grin, "Big solid bloke, real jealous."

"Not to worry, I won't look if you decide to get frisky," I respond without missing a beat, only just managing to mask the falter in my voice as I wonder at the truthfulness of her claim.

"No, of course you won't, hmm?" I laugh, "Maybe, next time, you should tell Otik you're leaving, too?"

"I'm not too worried," I shrug as I settle back to begin rifling through my bag as I lay a few items out on the table, each one in their own neat little rows. "You know my neighbor. She'd have his hide if he kicked me out again. She told him I was her son last time. Poor Otik... really, I didn't mind him giving the apartment to someone else. I was gone so long, it's only fair."

"So why don't you go stay with her, I'm sure she'd take you." I answer, "And dote on you, cook your meals and clean your glasses. I'm not convinced she isn't in love with you."

"She's not as pretty as my Ljubie, though," I respond with a teasing wink as I nudge her side. "I'd be lost without my Ljubie."

"You sound like you're saying loogie," I remark, "Always sounds like that. Am I spit, now? Snotty spit?"

"Better than Ljoob-ah," I retort as I draw her mug to my lips again. "Sounds like someone trying to say lube and getting cut off by something pleasant. Like an orgasm."

"Get your own," I chide, snatching my mug from his hands as a bit spills out on the table. "And there's nothing wrong with my name, just when you say it wrong."

"Rude," I scoff as I shake the beer from my fingers and then hold a hand up toward Itsy. I make a sign like I'm drinking something when she responds, my attention returning to Ljuba after Itsy's acknowledgment. 

"So what's been going on in my absence?" I ask. "Anything interesting or important?"

"Well, there's my roommate. He's massive. Thor. I mean, who names their kid Thor? This guys parents, apparently." I shrug, taking a long drink of my beer before I twist to start absently gathering my things. People have begun filing into the bar and it leaves an uneasy feeling in my stomach with my things strewn across the table.

"Do you really have a roommate named Thor or are you just trying to make me jealous?" I ask, taking note of the way she starts clearing her things from the table. I pause for a moment as I cock my head back toward the door where the people have filed in, the sound of heavy boots and boisterous chatter enough to convince me to begin clearing my own things from the table. Too many to coax into fair trade, unfortunately. They'd be more likely just to take what they want given my seeming handicap in comparison to their own girth and numbers.

Smiling slightly, I turn my attention back to Ljuba as Itsy comes over with my drink. "Because you know how much I've always wanted my own roommate named Thor."

"Oh, he's totally real," I respond quietly as Itsy heads away from the table, watching her with a bit of envy as the crowd seems to part for her passage. 

"Rotten roommate, though. Eats all the cheese, chews on my wires."

"...," I stare toward Ljuba sightlessly, my head cocking to the side thoughtfully as my eyes narrow. "Is Thor a rat? Did you really name one of the rats? Oh, honeybee. Now you're making me feel guilty, leaving you alone like that."
