"The road to good intentions..." I trail off with a laugh as I put a hand on the edge of the cup so I can pour the tea, my finger curled inside the edge just slightly so I can gauge when to stop pouring.

"I didn't want to break your pitcher," I challenge, moving to sit back in my spot as I wait for him to fill my own glass as I pull a straw out of my pocket.

"What is it like?" I ask curiously after a moment, my head turned to the side just slightly as I listen to her drinking. "Getting by with your injuries, I mean? Was it difficult to adapt?"

"Losing the eye was the worst part," I respond after a moment of drinking, setting the tea back as I return my attention to my food. "I can take small bites, use straws, even drink from a glass if I need to, but losing my depth perception was the hardest to adjust to.

"Physically speaking, anyway. Or... Sensually?" I frown, shrugging, "I mean, the headaches and seizures are the worst, but I figure you meant directly tied to my face."

"I keep forgetting that you're blind in one eye," I admit with a nod. "It makes sense though? I've heard a lot of people have a hand time adjusting to losing their sight. I could never understand why at first, but then someone explained to me that I ought to think of how it would effect me to lose my hearing or my sense of touch. I'd be lost without those."

I can't help but grin as I continue to pinch at my sausage and bread, combining pieces and setting them aside before moving on. 

"So I guess it would be like losing hearing in only one ear. It's really disorienting at first. I swear I broke so much stuff knocking it over and then not catching it."

"Oh my God, losing it in one ear is awful," I agree with a groan. "I had a gun go off next to my face once or twice... ear was ringing for days. Couldn't find my equilibrium to save my life.

"What are you doing to your food?" I ask suddenly, completely abandoning the topic I was on as I frown at hey plate. "You're putting things on your plate. What is that??"

"It's-" I frown, raising a hand to guard my plate a bit as I narrow my eyes at him, "My food, it's bread and sausage... Shut up." I make a face as I pull the plate closer to my front, hooking an arm around it as I grab my tea for a drink.

"Are you playing with your food? " I ask, unable to keep the scolding from my voice as I shake my head. "For God's sake, just eat. Sheesh."

My cheeks flush a bit as my arm sinks against the table, my eyes dropping to my plate as I pick up one of the broken up pieces and pop it in my mouth. 

"That's what I'm trying to do," I say softly, a bit deflated as I grab another piece.

"Uh huh," I nod, cooking my head towards her disbelievongly. "That's what I used to say, too, and I never did actually eat the food because this one smells funny or this has chunks in it or, God forbid, there's a crack in this one."

My frown sharpens as I look up at him, sighing deeply as I pinch another bite between my fingers. 

"I can't bite into things very well, Marnin. So I pull them off into bite size pieces, so I can eat them."

"Oh," I say stupidly, my cheeks warming in embarrassment. "I'm sorry, of course that's what you're doing. We were literally just talking about that. I'm an idiot, forgive me."

I shrug as I pop the bite into my mouth, reaching out for my tea. 

"You didn't know, no harm." I say absently, staring down at my half-eaten plate.

"Do you like burnt corn?" I ask after a moment as I stuff a large bite in my mouth before getting up to hurry to the grill. "I sure hope so because that's what we're having."

291 Re: Where Truth Lies on Fri Nov 25, 2016 11:08 pm

"I think the corn will be all you." I call back to him, shoving my plate away as I grab my tea and take a long swallow.

"Honestly, I should probably leave soon... I need to get more medicine and figure out what I'm going to be making to sell this week." I sigh, "I didn't intend to spend the night when I came last night."

"Mm, yeah," I nod as I pull the corn off the grill before pausing to pull the wallet from my pants pocket. "Here, this ought to cover you for awhile," I say as I come over to hand her a significant wad of cash.

293 Re: Where Truth Lies on Fri Nov 25, 2016 11:14 pm

My eyes widen as I barely catch the wad before he'd heading back to the grill, my fingers closing around the bills as I hold them awkwardly. 

"What..? No, no, I can't take all this." I frown, trying to separate only a single bill so I can return the money, "One of these will set me for a week on medicine, I'll be fine."

"You said a months work," I call back as I pick the least burned piece of corn on a plate. "And I won't have you going hungry, either. So take it. Whatever you don't use, toy can give back."

295 Re: Where Truth Lies on Fri Nov 25, 2016 11:22 pm

I look down at the money guiltily, sighing as I work to straighten it out so it'll fit into one of the pockets in my dress. At this point, I don't know how much longer I can stomach myself as I push out of my spot at the table, watching him at the grill hesitantly. 

"It was nice having company this morning," I say, "And last night... Maybe next time we'll be more prepared." I laugh awkwardly, patting the cash in my pocket.

"So there'll be a next time then?" I ask hopefully as I pause to look back in her direction.

"Isn't that what happens when people date..?" I ask, grinning slightly as I head towards the back of the house. "They date."

"Right, yeah, I suppose so," I respond, hesitating sheepishly. "Could I maybe..? No, nevermind. I'll see you later!"

"Hmm?" I stop just before the door, frowning as I look back at him - only a touch unsteady on my feet. 

"What?"

"Go home, " I say with a hint of a whine, the flush in my cheeks migrating to my ears. "You're making me nervous- I'll ask later."
