I'm almost ashamed of the little flicker of arousal I get at the thought, but I can't stop myself from inhaling eagerly as I bite my lip. "I always liked it when he let me strangle him," I admit quietly. "I've thought about not stopping so many times."

I swallow roughly, my cheeks feeling flush as I turn to put my hand in the water. I use testing the level as an excuse not to look toward her before I reach over to turn the water off so I can twist around to put my feet in. I hesitate on the edge for a moment.

"Do you want to join me..?" I ask with quiet hopefulness.

"Wh-" I frown, trying to make sense of his question before looking down at the water as realization dawns.

"You want me to..?"

"Only if you want to," I respond quickly, a faint flush coming to my cheeks. "But yes..? Not for anything! I just... like being close to you?" I can feel my heart race a little faster as I feel a knot of guilt form in my gut. "Is that wrong? After what we just went through..?"

"I don't want to think of you that way," I frown, shaking my head, "I don't want my memories of you being that..."

I shift in my spot to work at the buttons on my top, my heart racing as I look back at Marnin. "I'll join you."

"Thank you," I smile, sighing in relief. "Oh! Wait here, I've got an idea - it's lame, you'll love it," I grin as I get back out of the tub, leaving a trail of water behind me as I hurry into the sitting room.

It takes me a moment to find everything, my arms overfull when I come back into the bathroom. A bottle of wine dangles from my fingers, my arms clutching the record player from my room and a handful of vinyls I've wanted to share with her for years.

"You're not opposed to drinking in the tub, are you?" I ask as I put the player down and turn to hand her the bottle and the two glasses so I can set up the record player.

"Not at all," I can't help but grin as he hands me the bottle, holding it up on the edge as I sink into the water. I watch him as he sets up the record player, curious to see what else he's brought as I scoot to peer over the edge curiously. 

I'm grateful for whatever magic Alina has managed to use on my bandages, because not once do I feel the intrusive burn of water against my stitches, leaving me able to relax in the warmth of the tub. 

"I didn't know you had records," I grin softly, resting my chin against the tub as my arm droops to let the wine rest on the floor.

"I have so many records, Lju," I grin back at her. "I started collecting them before I learned how to read again. I've been trying to find a record player for my place back in Old North, but it's hard to find one that works. I've found records, but no record player."

"I think Maggie upstairs had one," I grin a bit, drawing my legs up towards myself as I let my fingers run along the wine bottle absently. 

"I don't think you ever asked."

"Well, I don't want other people's record players," I scoff as I put on one of the albums before coming back to join her in the tub. "I want my own record player, so I can sit in the tub and listen without thinking I'm naked with this person's record player."

"I doubt Mags would have missed it," I laugh, sinking back into my end of the tub as I hand him the bottle of wine before picking up the glasses as I wait.

It takes me a moment to get the cork out before I can pour the wine into each glass, my feet tucking awkwardly at Ljuba's sides as I lean forward to pour it. Still, I can't help but grin as I put the bottle off to the side and take my glass, the wine sloshing a little bit as it trickles down into the tub.

"Oops," I laugh before holding the glass up in a quick toast so I can drink it down to a more acceptable level. "You know, we're not allowed to be doing this. Richard would have our hides... but I kind of like it. I'll be honest, every time we've had a drink together, I felt a little rebellious delight over it because it's been hammered into my head that I never drink without Richard."

"Explains why you were so pleased with the swill back in Old North." I laugh, taking a slow sip of the wine as I let my legs stretch slowly towards Marnin. 

"I liked it because it was cheap, but it wasn't all that good."

"Are you kidding?" I laugh. "I love that swill. I might be a cliche, but I hate all this rich, fancy crap. I mean, I've never not had access to all the wealth I have here, but I don't know... I just prefer working for every cheap, disgusting beer I can get. Plus, you know, it would have taken asking Richard to use any of my money, so there's that..."

"Wanna know a secret..?" I ask, my nose wrinkling as I take another long drink of wine. "I hate wine. It all tastes like wood and tart. I've never understood the appeal. Even the fancy stuff, I'd rather drink straight vodka than sip on wine."

I laugh as I look at the glass in my hands, "Not that I'll turn it away. No point in wasting it."

"I drink it cause it's romantic," I laugh as I swirl my glass a bit, sniffing at the rich fragrance. "But, yeah, you're right... all I can taste are the barrels and the tannins in this stuff. Beer isn't really much better - hops and dirt and wood - but at least it's not as dry and bitter. Honestly, I like the sweet stuff better. Or the hard stuff. Who needs to be concerned with how it tastes when your tastebuds have been burned off."

I grin as I nod, glancing towards the record player as I notice the song playing for the first time. 

"So what is this, anyway..?" I ask, "Aside from whatever might happen upon the radio, I don't think you've ever really told me about what sort of music you like."

"I'm not sure what this one is called," I admit as I nod toward the counter. "The cover is over there, though. Music was always kind of a secret indulgence when I lived here. Richard didn't approve of what I liked, so he would break any of the records I found unless I hid them... so I got used to not asking anyone what the names were on the covers."

"Ah, well, I'm not moving," I say with a shrug, only sitting up to try and peer onto the counter curiously. It wouldn't matter, I can't see anything in the dim light of the bathroom. 

"I can't see anyway, it's a bit dark in here."

"Is it?" I ask, cocking my head a bit as I listen for the hum of electricity in the room. There isn't one. "Ah, sorry... I forget about the lights sometimes."

"There's light, its just coming from out the door," I say as I take another drink of wine, smiling slightly. "I like the dark, though. It's comfortable. One of the reasons I enjoyed having a blind friend - no one complained about it being dark."

"Oh, it's purely the blindness." I nod teasingly, "You're actually quite annoying."

"Well, I do try my best," I smirk. "No one wants to sit with the annoying guy. Makes the blindness less obvious, you know."

"And it all distracts from the fact I'm essentially a fairy tale monster," I laugh, "With you by my side, hardly anyone notices me at all."

"Except for me," I smirk as I poke her side with my toes. "Only I can see the fairy tale princess you really are. Floofy dress and all."
