"So it'll be your turn to cook?" I remark, glancing back towards him as I package up the leftover pastries and set them aside.

"If you're feeling brave, yeah," I grin as I get up to help her wash up. "I only cook when the ships come in, so it's a rare occasion indeed."

"Ah," I nod, "Are you any good?"

"If I'm not distracted, yes," I laugh a little embarrassed as I scratch the back of my neck. "But I'm really bad about getting distracted, soo... it'll be fine! I'll just put all my.projects away before you come over. Then I'll have to focus on what I'm doing."

I glance at him over my shoulder as I smirk, shaking my head as I scrape a bit of soap onto the pan so I can start scrubbing at it. 

"Keep your projects out, I can cook." I laugh, "We'll consider it more of me working off my debt."

"Are you sure..?" I ask after a moment of hesitation. "It's not at my shop, it's at my house, so you'll have to put everything back just right so I can find it - actually, no, that's fine." I say quickly, dismissing the little tickle of anxiety with a wave of my hand. "I can do the clean up.

"Anyway, if there's anything in particular that you want to make, just let me know and I'll put out my people to find it before it hits the markets," I say as I hand off my plate and cup before helping her pick up the mess from cooking. "Otherwise I'll just grab whatever sounds good."

"Before it hits the markets?" I pinch my brow at that, taking his dishes so I can wash them as I chuckle. "You going to have your brother, the boogieman, set it all up for us?"

"I don't need the boogie man for that," I scoff, rolling my eyes at her teasing. "My father built half the ships that fly from here, and now they come to me for their repairs. That has its privileges, and one of those is first pick of the shipments."

"So, hold on-" I laugh, setting the plate into the sink as I turn to look at him. "Your brother is at the helm of the local legend, your father built the ships that supply the city, your Mum is adorable from what I can gather... And you've another brother who's just super boring...

"Are you going to tell me you've also got a sister who's like the crowned princess of... Narnia or something? You might be from the least boring family I've ever encountered."

"They really are super boring," I laugh at her teasing. "Why do you think I make useless things like mechanical birds yhat poop oil on my neighbors signs when they're being assholes? It's because I'm so bored with my ridiculously outlandish family."

"Ah," I hold my chest as I scoff for his plight, "The hardships you must've faced." I add with a laugh, going back to finishing the dishes.

"So many," I sigh woefully, a smile still lingering on my lips. "Anyway, I should probably get going, hmm? I'll be in tomorrow if you need anything adjusted or if you have any questions."

I falter a bit, not expecting his departure so soon as I nod.

"Of course, let me know what you find out about those Pallhagan names and stuff. I can't be Looba forever. There's not charm in that."

"I will," I nod as I gather up my things and pause to stand vacantly in the center of the room, my head cocked slightly to the side. "I, um," I can feel my cheeks flush as I frown a bit, unable to find my cane the way I normally would without someone here to witness me. "I seem to have misplaced my cane?"

"Hmm?" I dry my hands as I turn back around to look at him, it taking a moment to click as I nod. "Ah, yeah. My apartment swallows things, but I remember you having it..."

I step away from the sink, glancing around as I make do with the one eye I can see from with a slight frown. "But I don't remember what it looks like... It's not black, is i-" I stop myself, clicking my tongue as I shake my head. "Of course, how would you know what color it is? Forgive me, my tea's got me a touch loopy."

"It's juniper?" I offer lamely. "Twisty wood, leather handle, steel cap on the bottom. I thought I sat it by the bed."

I nod softly as I slip past him, dropping to my hands and knees as I slide my hand under the mass of blankets at the edge of the bed, pulling the cane out from where it had settled. 

"I lose stuff under there all the time," I laugh, reaching out to tap his arm gently with the cane before making it back to my feet. "It's a blessing it's just a mat on the floor, if it were an actual bed with space under there, I think I'd fall in and never find my way out."

"Ha, I know exactly what you mean," I laugh as I take the can gratefully. "...what exactly did you put in the tea again?"

"Well, nothing in yours." I answer as I head back to the kitchen to sort out the dishes enough so I won't feel guilty leaving the mess for the morning. 

"But there was a bit of moppy in mine."

"Is that something you need?" I ask, a bit of concern creeping into my tone. "Or is that just for recreation, or sleep, or...?"

"Wha-? Moppy?" I shrug, tucking the rinsed dishes neatly into the sink before I move to sink into the uncomfortable chair heavily. "It's milk of the poppy, and yeah, I suppose it helps me sleep. Helps me stay asleep. Sometimes I lay wrong and it hurts a lot, or I'll wake up and have this blinding headache for days. It's worst when I'm tired.

"I don't usually have company at night, and I wasn't going to have any moppy at all but cooking took so long and when I made us both tea?" I shrug a bit tiredly, the weight of it starting to settle in. "I sort of thought you'd be gone before I got loopy."

"And you'll be okay on your own?" I ask with a slight frown, unsure of what this poppy stuff does. "I don't mindsleeping on the floor if you need a trip buddy."

I scoff as I wave him off, "Go, this is normal. It's in little bottles so I know how much to pour and everything. Once you're out the door, I'll curl up in bed and just be off!" I nod, giving him a thumbs up before my eyes widen and I grab my hand.

"Ah, fuck, you're blind, I'm sorry!"

I laugh at her embarrassment and hold my own thumb up in response. "Brilliant observation, detective," I tease. "And here I thought I was hiding it well."

I can feel my cheeks burn as I grin at him, waving a middle finger at him.

"Stop being cute and just go home," I chide, "I want to go to bed."
