"What about damn? Shit? Ass?" I ask curiously, grinning as she kicks at me. "Because we're going to have very stunted communication if you don't use half of my vocabulary."

"I just don't like that f-word. And maybe a few others-" I remark, "None of which I'm telling you.

"Maybe you could just not swear, and our exchanges could be so much more pleasant."

"You're cute," I chuckle as I reach over to grab a piece of dried fruit out of my bag. I pop a piece into my mouth and then grab another before leaning forward to offer it to her. "My little drow poth who doesn't like swearing."

I laugh as I take the fruit, my eyes widening in faux-surprise.

"You made it through that entire statement without one swear!" I praise him, taking a bite of the fruit and chewing it gleefully. "Impressive."

"You think that's impressive, you should see me with my pants down," I grin, winking at her teasingly. "But then, I don't know. You've seen a male hooker with his pants down... you might just laugh and that would wound my pride."

"I actually didn't see much." I answer, my lips tugging into a slight frown as I take another nibble of the dried fruit. "Anything, really. It was really dark."

"Well, that's unfortunate," I frown as I take another bite of fruit. "If anyone would have a pretty pecker, it'd probably be him."

"Peckers aren't pretty." I laugh at that, looking over at him. "I'm not talking about penises with you. Find something else to be gross about, would you?"

I pop the rest of the fruit in my mouth as I roll onto my side, kicking him one last time for good measure before I start digging into my bag. "And before I forget-" I trail off, finding the pouch I was looking for before tugging it out and prying it open to peer inside. "I made these earlier. You were driving, and the music was loud, so I didn't say anything. But I figured you might want some."

"What is it?" I ask around a mouthful of fruit.

"Cigarettes. I got bored earlier so I rolled a bunch," I respond, handing him the pouch as I nod towards it. "I brought extra tobacco and other fillers because I wasn't sure what I'd need, and it's relatively mindless work to keep my hands busy. Don't share, though - they've got your stuff on them. They should be dry now."

"I-," I hesitate to finish swallowing, clearing my throat awkwardly as I take the offered pouch. "Thank you..." I'm a little at a loss at the kind gesture, the pouch turning over in my hand several times as I look at it uncertainly. "So you just made these because you were... bored?"

"Pretty much," I shrug, settling back into my blankets as I adjust my blanket, an arm curling around my pillow. "It's pretty clear at this point you're not going to abuse it, at least these should hit a little smoother than the teas. Might be easier to keep a level head while you're driving.

"If you don't like them in a couple days, I can figure out something else."

"Thank you," I say more genuinely, offering a faint smile as I go to tuck the pouch in the corner of my bag. "So what kinds of other things do you treat? It can't all be echoes."

"Me? So far, just you, really. I helped my father with a lot of his patients, though. He had a handful of echoes, he had a Prime once, when I was a little kid. 

"Other than those, it's mostly mutts. Varying degrees of civil and feral. It was actually really interesting - some of them were dependent on a form of treated blood. I used to have to deliver it to them, and I'd have to carry the pouches under my clothes against my skin to keep them warm enough."

"Interesting," I say thoughtfully. "Becca never treated mutts, just echoes. Was there a lot of money in treating them?"

"They were mutts," I frown, twisting my head to look at him. "Most of them are barely able to feed themselves, let alone afford the treatments that keep them from going full feral."

"I figured," I sigh heavily as I put my guitar aside and settle down to use my bag as a pillow. "I've never had a lot of money," I admit after I've gotten comfortable. "I used to have to beg Becca to get even the tiniest bit of dust from her. She insisted it was because I didn't need it and I was just coming down. She had me convinced I was a junkie."

"My father used to warn me that other apothecaries tended to focus more on the business aspect of our trades." I frown to him as I sigh, "And it's easier to turn the poor ones into junkies than to turn them away entirely. Keeps you on a sort of a leash."

"I've been convincing myself it was because the sex was too good for her to leave," I say lightly. The tightness in my chest, however, contradicts the joking tone of my voice. Sighing, I rub my hand across my cheek and stare up at the ceiling of the van.

"I'm sorry she took advantage of you." I whisper, my head lolling back as I look up to follow his gaze towards the ceiling.

"Yeah, well," I clear my throat, shifting uncomfortably as I pull the blankets up to my chin. "Jokes on her, though. I gave her crabs."

"Ugh," I cringe at that, kicking at him the best I can before laughing. 

"I'm not entirely sure that shouldn't fall into the swears category."

"Sorry," I smirk, turning on my side to avoid her kicking before I curl up more comfortably as I lift my head to look at her. "I gave her itty bitty bugsy wugsies from my no-no area."

My nose wrinkles at that, glancing over at him as I laugh softly. 

"I might could make something for that - Might burn it all off, though."

"Nah, it's fine," I wave dismissively, chuckling quietly. "I got rid of them ages ago. Never really had them, actually. I just happened to take her favorite blanket and then paid a hooker to shave her no-no hairs on it."

I can't tell if she's shocked or disgusted, but the momentary silence makes me feel guilty.

"We were having a fight and she cheated on me," I say defensively.
