I only make a face as I watch him, smirking slightly. 

"I promise, I won't touch a thing in the kitchen aside from the wine." I say in offering as I stretch my arms across the island as I sprawl over it. "But hurry up, I'm hungry."

"You could join me..?" I offer as I walk backwards toward the sitting room, a crooked grin on my lips.

"Oh, no." I laugh, shaking my head, "I don't get naked before dinner, it's a personal rule. You understand."

"That's a stupid rule," I chide as I twist around to waltz through the sitting room with a loud sigh. "Your loss! I have fizzy bath soap. Smells amazing!"

"Bath soap is pointless in a shower," I point out, twisting to look back at him, "You offered a shower, I suggested a shower. You changed the game!"

"The game is always changing, Ljuba!" I shout, throwing my hands up in the air at the bottom of the stairs. "The whole world is chaos! It's madness, I tell ya! Madness!"

I only laugh as I wave him off, slipping from my spot at the bar to get back at that wine in the fridge.

****

I'm mildly surprised to find Ljuba hasn't touched the food when I get back, freshly washed, a pair of pajama bottoms and a t-shirt clinging to damp skin as I mess my hair with a towel.

"What? No dinner?" I ask as I throw the damp towel at Ljuba before smirking as I go over to the counter to start prepping the food.

Curled up on the edge of the couch, I manage to move my glass of wine just before his towel hits me as I laugh. 

"You owe me dinner, remember?" I laugh, grabbing his towel and dropping it off to the floor beside the couch.

"Yeah, but I'm on restricted activity," I complain teasingly as I open up the package of fish, my face immediately twisting into disgust. "Ugh, fish smells so nasty."

"I'm pretty sure dinner is within your abilities," I say as I crawl off of the couch to take my seat at the bar, "And given you can't go a day without knocking about that bag in the basement, anything else that might happen tonight is... Well."

"You think digestion is gonna be that intense?" I ask as I pause to hold the fish up, my finger moving his mouth as I make a tiny voice for him. "I'll gut you if you eat me, motherfuckers."

Laughing, I take a drink of wine before setting my glass down. 

"Shut up and cook, would you?" I say, "I haven't eaten yet today."

"That's not very responsible," I accuse as I feel along the edge of the counter for the knife drawer. Pulling out a filet knife, I drop the fish on the marble cutting board by the sink, and quickly slice into the abdomen to begin cleaning the trout.

"Actually, I haven't eaten today either," I admit as I start pulling the entrails from the fish so I can toss them in the compost bucket. "I opened the shop today. Spent most of the day just trying to catch up on messages from the time I took off."

"Oh?" I ask, perking up a bit at the mention of his shop, "Got a lot of work lined up?"

"Half of it was hate mail," I admit with a laugh before nodding as I run the fish under cold water, my fingers running along the insides to make sure I've cleaned it fully. "But yeah, I got a bunch of commissions lined up. Mostly small stuff here and there, couple of interesting ones. I should be able to get your collar fixed up, too, if you want."

37 Re: Date Night on Sun Jan 01, 2017 3:30 am

"Yeah," I laugh, reaching up to run my fingers along it, "About that... I-" 

I stop to frown, realizing how careless I must sound. "I sort of use the quick release a bit. I think it's starting to fuck with the latches, it feels a bit loose..."

"That's not surprising," I nod as I drop the fish back on the cutting board before washing my hands and drying them quickly so I can come fidget with it. "The leather will take awhile to settle, might need readjusting a few times before it finds just the right fit."

It's only a moment after laying my hands on the collar that I realize something is off about it, a frown coming to my lips as I run my fingers over the fine leather. There are scuff marks all over one side.

"What happened?" I ask, too alarmed to work any tact into my voice as I pause to inspect the damage with my fingers. "Did you get into a fight??"

39 Re: Date Night on Sun Jan 01, 2017 3:39 am

"What?" I frown, reaching up to follow his hand to the scuffs. Fuck, "No, no fights." I say guiltily, "I... I got a bit pissed the other night, I think I stepped on it in the bathroom..."

"Hmm," I frown, not saying anything about the marks not matching up with what would happen if she'd stepped on it. "Well, no worries. I can buff it out, put a little sealant on it... you should be careful, though. The mech is delicate. I'll make you a stand or something."

I only nod as I watch him as his hands feel across my collar, and it takes more effort than I care to admit to keep my expression indifferent as I watch his seemingly subtle disappointment at the poor care I've taken of the collar. 

"I've been pretty careless with the moppy lately," I admit with a sharp frown, "but I'm getting back on top of that, so I'll be more careful of the mask... I don't mean to take it for granted, I just... I just get careless."

"I'm hardly one to talk," I comment as I reach up to touch the mask curiously, my lips twitching a bit at the damage there. "You get stoned and hurt your stuff. I come down and break my hand on a witch's jaw. At least the collar is easily fixed, yeah?"

43 Re: Date Night on Sun Jan 01, 2017 4:03 am

"Yeah," I smile softly, nuzzling towards his touch despite it being against the mask, "It's been a bit finnicky for a couple weeks, honestly... I just felt like garbage telling you."

"Well, stop that," I say gently as I let my thumb brush across her lips lightly. "If you don't come to me when the problems are minor, they turn into bigger problems that I might not be able to fix. Just tell me, and I can take care of it."

I nod as I reach up to catch his hand in mine, smiling crookedly before pushing him back towards the kitchen.

"I promise, I'll tell you right off if it happens again," I say as I twist to rest back against the bar, "Once I'm working, I'll feel like less of a leech asking you to work on it for nothing."
