"Well, I'd prefer you didn't know that I get my head cracked open fighting child traffickers, but here we are," I shrug as I sip at my tea. "I won't tell if you won't?"

"Sounds like a deal," I nod, laughing softly as I stare down at my tea. "So does your Ljuba friend know you got knocked around by kiddy diddlers?"

"Nope," I respond cheerily. "She just thinks I'm a drug addict and a fuck up."

I laugh softly as I take another drink, pushing my mug away as I slide out of my seat. 

"Are you not those things, too?" I ask, hesitating by the fridge as I look back at him, "Sorry, that was... That was supposed to be a joke."

"It's not a very good joke if you have to explain it," I smile into my mug before shrugging. "And honestly? I'm clean more often than not. I only tend to use maybe once or twice a month, and then only for a day. Benders like this last one are few and far between.

"But yeah, I generally do fuck things up," I admit with a laugh. "That's kind of my disguise, you know?"

"It's a good one," I nod, opening the fridge as I grab out two pre-portioned meals and head for the other side of the kitchen so I can set a pot of water to boiling. 

"He was my dinner plans, so are you hungry?" I ask as I grab a pot and start filling it with water, "I am serving..." I hesitate, grabbing one of the boxes and holding it so I can see it in the light filtering from the living room, "Authentic Vaelish Garden Pasta with...." I squint slightly to read the italic print, "An artisan herb-seasoned chicken, cooked fresh in the bag."

Shrugging, I drop it back to the counter, "It's one of those boil-in-a-bag dinners, so don't let the title entice you too much. It's just okay."

"Sounds deliciously okay," I respond with a smile. "Just don't expect any of your other planned activities afterward - Doc told me to behave."

"Don't get smart," I chide, "I don't get involved with patients, no matter how imaginary they might be."

"Well, I hope not," I scoff. "I don't think I could stand smelling like that guy," I add as I nod back at the door. "Aftershave and sex and so much lube. Just oozing out of his pores. I mean, I guess I could see how that could be hot... kinda slippery and heated and messy... that could be fun. But no, no."

My eyebrows pinch as I look past him towards the door, shaking my head with a laugh.

"Yeah, he smells normal to me." I remark, opening the boxes and pulling the bags out so they can be dropped in the water once it boils. "Don't spoil it with your weird strong senses."

"It's possible I'm just making that up to tease you," I admit with a chuckle. "He just smelled like cologne and body wash."

"See, it's still weird that you can say that." I say as I point at him on my way back to my seat.

"Is it?" I ask casually as I fish my teabag out, squeezing it over the mug before I set it aside so I can take another sip.

"Don't act like you don't know it's weird," I scoff, reaching into my tea gingerly so I can pinch off a piece of lemon and pop it in my mouth. 

"So that collar on your friend, you made that?" I ask as I pinch off another piece of lemon, rind and all, and pop it in my mouth, "You're a tech, then?"

"Born and raised," I nod as I stir at my tea absently. "I own the Musical Menagerie in the tech quarter. What about you? Ever mix crafts, or is it strictly biology for you? "

"Well, I can't build anything nor can I make things go poof," I laugh, "Nope, just medicine.

"I wouldn't have pegged you as a tech, to be honest." I add, "Kind of figured you were just family money, and too stupid to know how lucky that made you."

"Yes, I noticed, " I respond dryly. "Honestly, I get that a lot. People don't realize that I live in my mother's house, which her income still pays the tax on, and that most of my income goes towards caring for her. Any wiggle I have left on the budget is purely a blessing of the whimsy of my customers and their coin purses. Being blind earns a good sympathy profit with the tourists, and hard work and talent keeps them coming back even if they have to commission me from a continent away. Otherwise I would be eating moldy crackers in a cardboard box because I sure as hell can't afford anything like what you have here."

"This is family money," I laugh slightly, "Sort of. My mother passed when I was young, and dad went just a few years later. John wound up in charge of their estate, but it was all left to me.

"Paid for school, this apartment, and the rest is sitting tucked away someplace safe."

"As in he won't let you have it unless it's needed?" I ask, not the least bit surprised if that's the case.

"No, I could have it if I wanted." I shrug, slipping off the stool to check if the waters boiling. "I just prefer to work for it. I'm calling the education and a place to live my gifts for growing up with the parents I had.

"And consolation for the growing up I did without them."

"I can respect that," I nod appreciatively. "Honestly, I could skate by on family money if I were so inclined. But yeah... I'd rather work for it, too."

I nod as I drop the bags into the water, digging into one of my cabinets for the lid before popping it on top.

"So where'd your family get its wealth?" I ask absently, setting a timer before wandering to the fridge to stare into it. I don't know what I'm looking for, there's nothing but drinks, condiments, and jars of premade sauces and dressing. "Financial traders? Family of techs? Or that ominous sort of wealth that was just always there?"

"None of the above, really," I shrug absently. "My mum was a tech, but it took her whole life to get where she is. And now that she's not working, her wealth is slowly dwindling away.

"Richard, though - that's my brother, " I frown. "He has that ominous wealth that wasn't there one day, and then the next... he suddenly had all of it."

"Ah," I frown, glancing back at him before shutting the fridge and wandering back to my seat. "He sounds like bad news."

"Mmm," I nod as I sip at my tea, my nose crinkling as I smell the boiling plastic bag containing our food. "So what happened with your mum?" I ask with a soft frown. "You said she passed?"
