I stare tensely down at my plate, my hands holding each other so tightly my fingers tingle from lack of circulation. 

"It won't happen again," I respond weakly, clearing my throat as I extend a trembling hand for the bottle of water just beyond my plate.

"Mm," I respond vaguely as I turn my focus on my food, the subject losing its appeal now that she's submitted.

We eat in tense silence, or at least I do. I don't think Lavellan cares one way or the other that I'm at his table any longer. By the time I've finished my plate, I feel as though I'm having trouble keeping my eyes open, but at least the trembling in my hands has lessened. Combined with the pleasant feeling that's engulfed my head, I'm feeling quite good. 

"Do you mind if I take my mask off?" I ask once Lavellan's stood with his plate in his hand, "If I'm not going to be talking, I don't like wearing it."

"Go ahead," I respond as I come back to retrieve her plate so I can wash dishes. "And you know you don't have to be quiet. I was rather enjoying the conversation."

"I don't know what to talk about, to be honest." I shrug, handing him my plate and silverware before grabbing the water bottle and settling in my seat. 

"Sort of feels improper to given how high I am and how distasteful you find that."

"I don't find it distasteful," I frown as I linger at the table to look her over. "I've been there, Ljuba. Sometimes it takes all my self control not to go back. I didn't mean for what I said to sound so contemptuous.

"But I am your guildmaster and your mentor," I sigh as I head over to the sink. "And it's my job to see that you don't stumble on your path. That doesn't mean that you can't swerve a bit."

"Well, in that case-" I frown, spinning the straw in the bottle absently, "I don't really have much else to say. I doubt you wanna hear about Marn or Bea anymore than you have already."

"I'm happy to hear about whatever you care to talk about," I respond as I scrape the plates clean and begin soaping them up in the sink. "Silence is fine, too. I don't care."

"You're being almost nice," I point out, looking up at his backside skeptically. "Why..?"

"Maybe I want something," I respond evasively as I look back at her with a mysterious smirk. "Or maybe not. Maybe I had my own special tea. Who knows."

"You-" I start, laughing uncomfortably as I uncurl my legs from my seat and lean forward slightly, "You're really confusing, or I vastly misjudged how much tea of my own I've had."

"Or you've only had one cup of your tea, and the second cup was mine," I shrug dramatically. "But what would I know?"

My eye narrows as I look at him seriously, setting the water on the table as I frown.

"Seriously?" I ask halfheartedly, "What'd you give me!?"

"Nothing bad, relax," I scoff as I glance back at her before nodding toward the bundle of herbs I'd used to make the tea. "Everything I put in it is right there. Honestly, I thought you would have realized it wasn't yours when you drank it. I didn't realize you were already sauced."

Scrunching my nose, I turn to look at the bundle of herbs, though what they are doesn't immediately make sense to me. 

"Is there a reason for it..?" I ask lamely, dropping them back on the table as I look up at him, "Or do you just get a kick out of it?"

"Yes," I respond vaguely before shrugging. "You were very teary..."

"Someone crying is that upsetting to you..?" I follow up, my head dropping tiredly as I rub at my temple, "Is that why I'm so tired?"

"Mmm," I hum absently as I rinse the dishes, carefully stacking them off to the side so they can dry.

Sighing, I start to stand unsteadily as I hold onto the table, nodding towards him as I do. 

"You want to drug me?" I say cheerfully, pointing at him as I get my balance, "Fine, but I'm sleeping in your bed."

"That was the plan," I admit with a smirk as I glance back at her.

Huffing, I give him an annoyed look as I shake my head, grabbing the half-empty bottle of water. 

"You're a pig," I shake my head, turning towards the bedroom.

"Usually," I respond cheerfully as I return my attention to cleaning up. It isn't long before I've cleaned the kitchen top-to-bottom, Ljuba having long since fallen asleep in the bedroom. With the privacy and quiet of her absence, I'm able to finish my work on the dolls, each one meeting their own fate before being tucked away in the lockbox. Well, all except the one left hanging in the doorway from a thin sisal noose.

My work complete for the day, I'm more than happy to turn in. Or, I was until I'm actually faced with the reality of walking into my bedroom to find Ljuba sprawled out and looking very comfortable in the comfort of my bed. Sighing, I manage to nudge one of her legs out of the way, my touch lingering on her knee for a moment as she stirs and curls herself into a more considerate position. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted by the prospects of having her here in my bed, relatively helpless in her sleep.

But there's something unappealing about taking advantage after the vulnerable state she'd come to me in. Whether it's the possibility of her being more receptive or what, I don't know, but the temptation of sleep is far more enticing. After settling in, my robe abandoned on the floor and a soft quilt pulled up over my front, I'm not exactly put out by Ljuba's fussy turning in her sleep, her body eventually settling in against mine as she finally comes to rest with my arm somehow commandeered as her pillow.

It's a little troubling how easily I fall asleep after that...
