"Ugh," I complain as I sink into a seat by the bar, relinquishing the wine with a pout. "Those losses weren't the product of clumsiness, honestly. Clumsiness accidents are usually limited to bruises and bumps on the head. Usually."

"You don't have to tell me about clumsiness," I joke, pouring his wine into my glass before going to the sink to rinse his glass out.

"You know, because I'm missing half my face."

"Was that a clumsiness accident?" I ask curiously, careful to keep my disbelief from my voice.

"More like poor decision making," I respond, refilling his glass with water before bringing it back to him. "It was just a bad joke."

"Well then, we have at least two things in common, don't we?" I smirk, nodding my thanks as she hands me the glass of water.

"Drink your water," I remark, going to finish piecing together the ravioli, pausing occasionally to look at the cook book.

"Yes, ma'am," I murmur as I sip at the water. Expectedly, the water is not all that impressive, and it's only a few short minutes before I've slipped from my seat to slink over to find something different. When I open the cupboard to be met with the rich aroma of my coffee collection, I know precisely what I want, and I set to work making a fresh pot.

"What're you doing back there?" I ask, glancing over my shoulder as I pinch closed the last of the ravioli, "This is going to be ready in like five minutes. Less, if you don't count the time it'll take us to put it on a plate and get it to a table.

"You can't drink coffee with this!" I laugh, turning away from the counter to try and slow him down, "It's too strong, drink something light! Like a white or - Fuck, you're blind." I laugh loudly as I look around for his wine collection. 

"Save the coffee for after."

"You took my wine, and water is blegh!" I complain as I continue scooping the coffee grounds into the filter.

"These will go into the water for all of two minutes, will you just go sit down. Set the table or something." I sigh, waving him off. "Go find a light wine to drink, it'll go good with dinner."

"Has anyone told you that you're bossy?" I ask teasingly, not at all put off by her shooing me off or even the confiscation of my first pick of wine. Instead, I sigh as I abandon the coffee to go check on which wInes I have, my nail tapping on each bottle gently as I go through the list of wines in my head; dark and rich on the bottom, lighter, sweeter wines gradually coming up to the top.

I finally settle on a bottle of prosecco, the light effervescence seeming like an appealing companion for the buttery lemon sauce that would eventually top our meal.

"This time, be warned!" I chide as I pull down new glasses and dishes to set the table. "This is my favorite wine, and I'm not above biting stray fingers."

"My stray fingers can double as weapons, so you'll be pulling back a bloodied lip." I retort, dropping the raviolis into the water.

"You wouldn't assault a blind man, " I scoff, cocking my head to the side curiously as I listen to her hands as they move.

"Hmm," I narrow my eyes slightly before shrugging. "Fair enough. I'd probably enjoy it anyway." I grin at whatever noise she makes before holding my hands up. "Kidding!"

"You're a really strange man, you know that?" I say, pulling the raviolis up and laying them in the sauce delicately before looking over to see if there was anything else that I'd forgotten.

"Yeah, I get accused of that frequently," I sigh as I fidget with my glass. "It's one of Richard'so go to excuses for why I should be working for him. I'll agree with him on one thing, though. The freaks definitely gotta stick together."

"Oh, is your brother a freak?" I ask, a bit amused as I grab the saucepan and a serving spoon before looking to follow him towards the table. "Is he missing ears or something?"

"Yes," I respond before making a noise as I glance toward her and shrug. "No? I don't know, he smells like a twat, though. All... cologne and gunpowder and... I don't know, fucking smugness. And I hate his face."

"You hate his face..." I grin at that, making my way towards his side so I can serve him, "I'd hate to know what you say about mine when I'm not around."

"Does it say I'm a dick on it?" I ask as I sit back in my stool so I don't bump her as she's placing the food on my plate. "Because his does. I know because I wrote it there the last time he passed out drunk in my bed. Even our mother named him Dick. That's gotta mean something, right?"

I grin as I bump his side before moving on to serve myself, setting the pan on a trivet in the center of the table.

"I don't want to cut off your rant or change the topic, but I do have one question I need to ask," I say seriously, dusting my hands off on my front before glancing around the lushly filled sunroom at a bit of a loss.

"Can we... turn on some lights in here?"

"Huh?" I ask before registering the question. "Oh! Right, sorry!" I laugh awkwardly as I get up to go turn on the lights. "I swear, I always turn the lights on first thing when I get to the shop because otherwise I'd forget. But here? Sometimes I forget I even have lights here."

I laugh as I sink into my seat, waiting for him to return so we can open the wine and get started. 

"I mean, it makes sense you'd never use them," I shrug, "And it's not too dark in here, just... I like to be able to see my food. I'm just weird like that." I laugh, looking around the room again in the light. "You have a lovely collection in here, by the way. I'm a bit jealous."

"Thank you," I can't help but to smile at that as I take my seat, sighing contently as I let my head tilt back to enjoy the soft scent of the flowers and other plants. "It's my favorite room in the house, honestly. A lot of it was my mother's, but I've been adding onto it here and there. You know, when we dock into a new city? I'll pick up something new at each port."
