I feel my heart skitter pleasantly at the familiar voice, a genuine smile creeping onto my features as I turn my face up toward her, cocking my head slightly to listen to her better over the din of noise in the bar.

"Would you believe I missed you?" I ask, only half teasing as I reach up to squeeze her hand as she places a napkin next to my drink. "No," I sigh wistfully, withdrawing the touch as I let my fingers linger on the back of her hand for a fraction of a second before I go to take a drink of my ale. "Ljuba and I were just passing through. We ran out of gas on the way here and I thought we'd rest here until it's time to go back for the truck."

"I thought that might be her," I grin, taking a seat beside him as I bump his side playfully. "You two out gallivanting for any particular reason? Little romantic getaway, maybe?"

"Mmm, not likely," I hum wistfully as I lean against her, my arm draping across her shoulders comfortably as I lean in to kiss her jaw lightly. "Nah, we're just going on a little adventure, you know. Getting the Old North out of our lungs, maybe coming home with some goodies or something."

"Oh, in this weather?" I practically purr, turning to return to familiar gesture before I glance back towards the bathrooms. No sign of her yet. "Most travelers are packing it in the season."

"That's their mistake, isn't it?" I reply, my voice gone gravelly and deep as I nuzzle against her. "More for me."

"Mmm, is that so?" I remark, twisting to face him a little better as I draw one of my skirted legs across his shin. "You getting your usual room, love?"

"Mm, yes," I respond without thinking, my thumb coming up to graze across the bottom edge of her lip, lost in the temptation to lean in to feel it with my tongue. I inhale sharply as I catch the sound of the bathroom door opening, Ljuba's footsteps standing out in the cacophony of noise in the room. "Ah, no," I correct, wincing slightly as I feel a flush come to my cheeks. "I mean, I really shouldn't leave Ljuba..."

"There're single rooms a stones throw away," I respond softly, leaning in towards him as I kiss his neck gingerly. I can feel him tense as he seems to be looking through me towards the restrooms, and I smile lightly as I sit back away from him.

"Room for two, it is." I say, "You know my door is always open, though."

"Mmm," I hum, heat pooling in the pit of my stomach at the promise. Squirming in my seat, I instantly feel the loss of her body heat as she slips out of the booth at Ljuba's approach, a faint note of protest catching in my throat as she leaves.

"You two want anything to eat?" I ask as I turn back, smiling sweetly at Ljuba. She looks up at me with a half-smile, glancing at Marnin as she sits up a bit eagerly, as though she's awaiting his approval.

"Please," I nod, sniffing at the air thoughtfully. "The chicken smells good tonight. How about that?"

*Ljuba*

I watch their exchange curiously, Marnin's hand reaching out to squeeze the blonde's as she smiles and nods her understanding. It leaves an odd feeling in the pit of my stomach, but it's on I force to the back of my mind as she walks away.

"She's pretty," I say softly, watching Marnin before I look over at my bag and begin absently toying with one of the straps.

"Is she?" I ask, fully aware of the blonde's appeal. Still, I preoccupy myself with unfolding my napkin and placing it in my lap before I take another sip of my beer.

I narrow my eyes at him as I shake my head, sitting back in my seat as I take a drink of my ale.

"So what's the plan?"

"I don't know," I admit before taking a more ambitious swig of the rich ale. Licking my lips, I set the glass back down with a clatter of glass on wood. "I figured we'd play it by ear, see where the evening takes us. We might find a ride while we're here, if we play our cards right. Not likely it'll be from one of the girls, though. They know better than to go with anyone outside the city limits."

"The girls..?" My eyebrows pinch as I look out across the room, finally noticing the only people who seem to be working are women. Attractive women. Suddenly the anxiety settling in my stomach jolts to life as the odd exchange between Marnin and the waitress sets in. Still, that's ridiculous. Marnin would never partake with a prostitute.

"Do you come here a lot..?"

"Not really, no," I respond evasively, my cheeks flushing as I recognize the padding feet of a younger waitress as she comes out of the back and spots me.

"Hey, Marn!" she calls, her full cheeks blossoming as she grins, her face framed in wild curls as she dances through the crowd with a tray full of drinks.

"Hey, June," I return her greeting, clearing my throat roughly as I hold a hand up before quirking my head back toward Ljuba sheepishly. "Okay, maybe a little... the rooms are much cleaner than other places..."

"Ah," I nod, glancing at the younger girl dubiously. I can't explain the sudden sense of jealousy tingling through my veins. I've never felt jealous over Marnin before.

"Is the food good, at least?" I ask, trying to change the subject as I look back at him. "Or the beds soft..? Honestly, I think I'm looking forward to the beds the most."

594Finally... - Page 24 Empty Re: Finally... on Fri Dec 25, 2015 12:34 am

"Yes and... yes?" I respond, trying to remember if the beds were soft or not on the numerous occasions I'd slept in them. I can remember plenty of things being soft... soft and warm and lush. Clearing my throat, I cock my head slightly before nodding. "Yeah... yeah. I think they're soft. I've always slept like a baby in them, so they must be, right?"

"Mmhmm." I hum tensely, staring down at my ale. "Must be. Have we got ourselves a room yet?"

"Er, Lue should be bringing the key back, I think," I respond as I tilt my head toward the kitchens to listen. "I got a double, if that's alright. I didn't think you'd want to split up in a strange city."

597Finally... - Page 24 Empty Re: Finally... on Fri Dec 25, 2015 12:43 am

"Lue?" I frown at the name, glancing towards the kitchen as I nod. "Right, yeah... That's probably what I'd have done."

I shift in my seat uncomfortably, drawing a leg into the seat with me as I pluck at my guitar distractedly. "Two beds?"

598Finally... - Page 24 Empty Re: Finally... on Fri Dec 25, 2015 12:47 am

"Yeah," I respond before hesitating. "Probably. I'll... yeah. Yeah, she wouldn't get a single bed for us." I nod as I gain a little more confidence with the statement. Luella wouldn't put us in a single room, she knows better, I'm sure.

I nod as I sit back, watching Lue head towards us with plates in each hand. She approaches the table with a smile, setting down our food before fishing something out of her apron pocket to set down on the table.

"Alright, two chicken plates and your room key. You two need anything else?"

"Can we get another pitcher of ale?" I ask, smiling up at her fondly as my hand slips into hers with comfortable familiarity. "And maybe a shot or two to go in it?"
