"It's all I've ever done," I shrug, "And I do enjoy it. I wish I could spend more time at home, or maybe be a bit more open with my clients. Last week was my daughter's birthday, you know." I smile a bit indulgently, sighing softy. "She turned seven. We had a party and she's been talking about it ever since. Some of the girls sent gifts and treats, but here? We're not supposed to talk about it here. Keep your mystery."

"You have a daughter?" I ask, a little surprised and pleased by the information. Somehow she seems more human with the image of a little girl hanging on her arm. "That's sweet. What about a spouse?" I ask, the question coming a little hesitantly. "How does he feel about you being here with me?"

"Eryn and I aren't married," I laugh softly, feeling at ease with the subject despite knowing it could lead to problems with my boss. "I suppose what we've wound up with isn't exactly typical. Ellie wasn't planned, and we weren't ever really a couple, but we just fell into this set up after she was born."

"And it doesn't bother either of you?" I ask, gesturing toward our tangled limbs as the water slowly covers them. "And what about... you know? Me and Lju? That doesn't bother you? Not that there's anything to be bothered about, we're just friends. But if we weren't..? Would you still be comfortable with this?"

"It's not my place to judge anyone's relationships or lack-of. I do my best to avoid passing moral judgments on any of my johns. If I did - I'd have quit doing this years ago. I'm company, that's all."

"Okay, right, but," I clear my throat a bit as I turn my head so that my chin is resting on her head, a way to avoid her gaze as I frown thoughtfully. "If you weren't just company. If you were... I don't know, my friend... would you tell me? Am I being stupid? I know you know how I feel about her... I just don't know that she feels the same, if she ever even could."

Frowning slightly, I nuzzle against his front as I sigh.

"I don't know if I'm the best to give advice here, Marn." I say softly, "I know you, I adore you. I'd think anyone and everyone would feel the same way, but I don't know her at all. I don't know how she feels about these things, you know?"

"Yeah, I suppose," I sigh heavily, my nose burying in her hair as I wrap my arms around her as much in resignation as for comfort. "Enough talk of sad things," I say after a moment, my voice sticking in my throat as I clear it and press a kiss to her forehead. "Tell me about your Eryn and Ellie. How did you meet? What's Ellie like?"

Sighing wistfully, I shrug as I stretch a leg up so my toes can cut off the water.

"Eryn and I met through one of my ex's. They were working together on something - I hardly remember what, but he was around a lot throughout the relationship and he was there when it sort of imploded. Too intense, too fast. I was really young, and I took it really hard, but Eryn made sure I didn't beat myself up over it. We tried the dating thing, but it never really felt like it fit with us. That's around the time I got pregnant.

"And Ellie? She's perfect. She's the best parts of both of us, with wildly curly hair, black like her father's. Freckles and blue eyes, and this amazing sense of humor. Eryn's been teaching her to read, I don't think I'd have the patience for it."

"That sounds wonderful," I smile, trying to suppress a yawn as I rest my cheek against her head. "I'm glad you found someone to go home to at night who treats you well. I worry about you sometimes, when I leave here and you're talking to someone who sounds about as civilized as one of the ferals out in the wastelands? I have to remind myself that this is your life and I'm only privy to these small moments by the grace of what few coins I have in my pocket at the time."

"If that's something you forget, then I must be quite good at what I do." I smile softly, twisting just slightly to kiss his neck. "You don't need to worry about me, love. I've plenty of friends around here who wouldn't see me mistreated. The Crossroads is one of the safest places in this town, which - if I recall - is what brought you here to begin with."

"Doesn't stop me worrying," I mumble as I nuzzle her before lifting my head to steal a soft kiss.
