"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."

"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.

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."

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."

"Oh...kay," I laugh softly, stepping in and turning back to face him one final time. "But, uhm... When is later..? Should we make plans...?"

"Morndas!" I say, pointing back at her with the tongs. c Wait, no. What is today? I don't know - three days from now. Gives us time to sober up and clean and that sort of thing.

"But feel free to come sooner if you get bored."

"Morndas." I nod back at him, patting the door before turning back into the house. 

"Til then," I call once I leave the sunroom, my hands gripping the uncomfortable wad of money in my dress as I step out the front.
