"Please," I respond, now hiding my face in the fridge despite having found the cantaloupe I didn't know I'd wanted, my cheeks annoyingly warm after Ljuba's lingering proximity. "And those records are hiding safely in the library where they will disintegrate into dust long after my death."

"The library, hmm?" I remark with teasing interest, "I don't suppose you could tell me which shelf..? You know, so I don't accidentally pull them down when looking for something else, entirely unrelated."

"It's the one that smells like records," I respond with a smirk as I finally get up and close the fridge. "Records and Blue Walsh ink. Ugh. But seriously, if that smell gets much worse, I don't think even I'll be able to find them again."

"Isn't it lovely?" I laugh, glancing over towards the roots laid out by the sink. "Sort of like stale shoe and death." I add, chuckling in amusement as I move to get the honey down. "Doesn't taste much better, hence the honey and lemon."

"Good lord, what did I agree to?" I laugh as I lay the cantaloupe on the counter and start pulling the pieces out to spread themy out on a plate. "Oddly enough, though? I think it will go well with the melon?"

"Oh, they'll compliment each other wonderfully," I nod indulgently, hesitating before laughing as I pull the kettle from the stove and test it. It's still a touch hot, but perfect for the lemon and honey already divvied into our cups.

"I feel like I lost a bet," I say after a few moments of silence, my cheeks full of the ripe cantaloupe as I find myself sniffling and wiping my nose on the back of my hand. "I'm nose blind, Lju."

"Oh, no!" I laugh as I look over at him, smiling sympathetically as I set the kettle down and step over, swiping a bit of melon from his plate.

My hand stops as I rub it across my face, my lips pulling into a frown despite the melon stuffed into my mouth. I can only imagine the puzzled look on my face as I cock my head toward Ljuba.

"Did you just steal my melon?!" I ask, wounded.

"I would never," I say, grateful for the vox's unwavering voice in spite of my own melon-stuffed-mouth. "Stealing from a blind man is impolite."

"I just discovered a new handicap and this is how you comfort me?" I pout as I take the plate a little further from her. "Well, now I'm not even sure I want to see you with one left sock on."

"Lucky for you, you couldn't even if you did." I chide, flushing almost immediately at the harshness of my joke, a silent laugh shaking my chest as I watch him. 

"That was mean, I'm sorry," I laugh.

"Or maybe you've already changed and that's all I can see now," I retort as I tap my nose knowingly.

Giggling, I shake my head as I swatch over to swat at him, swiping another piece of melon before turning to get the Valerian from near the sink.

"You wish," I chide, "You can hear the hustle and bustle of this big ol' robe, and you know it."

"It's more of a soft swoosh," I reply as I make a whooshing gesture with my hand before taking another bite of melon. "With the occasional swish. Honestly, im glad you're not keeping it tied. I hate how scratchy that one sounds when it's tied... funny how no one seems to have that in mind when they make stuff."

"Probably because most of us can't hear it," I laugh, glancing down as I pinch bits of the robe together to try and listen. "I don't hear anything, honestly."

"Yeah, you do, you're just not listening right," I scoff as I put the plate down and come over to her. I try to ignore the smell of the potent root as I pull the tie off of the robe and gesture for her to hold still for a second. I'm careful not to tangle her hair in the long piece of cloth as I wrap it around her eyes before tying it gently.

"Now just listen," I whisper quietly as I drag my nails gently across the fabric covering her ears before slowly moving to her shoulders. "Can you hear it now? All the little threads catching on every tiny callous?"

There's something very intimate about the way he stands before me, my eyes bound under the belt of the robe. Still, I swallow past the ball of excitement in my throat and try to concentrate, frowning slightly as I fail to hear what he's talking about. 

"I don't hear it," I say after a moment, my hands wringing with a touch of anxiety as I wait for him to remove the tie. "Not that, anyway. I can hear where it's over my ears, that sort of acoustic rustling like when you shift against a pillow or you're underwater..?"

"It's sort of loud and echo-y?" I ask, nodding with a faint frown as I pull her hand up to my cheek so she can feel me nodding. "That's sort of it, or at least that's probably as close as I'll ever get to being able to show you what I hear all the time. It's just everything... amplified?"

"I pretty much only hear my hair against the collar of the robe," I confess lamely, reaching up gently to pull the belt from over my eyes as I look up at him. 

"Perhaps it's not for me to hear," I offer, "But to set you apart."

"That's so cheesy," I laugh, unable to contain a grin as I linger near her, my fingers coming up touch her jaw cautiously.

"Was it?" I laugh, looking him at him as I lean my head against his fingers just slightly.

"Mm-hmm," I smile as I let my touch wander a little more, my fingertips mapping out the curves and ridges of her face. "Luckily, I like cheese."

"Now who's cheesy?" I laugh, reaching up to catch his hand before planting a soft kiss on his knuckles.

"Let's finish this tea, hmm?"

"I was looking," I laugh as I let her shoo me aside. Sighing, I hoist myself up on the counter and tilt my head as I listen to her bustling about. "So we're really gonna drink this, huh?"
