"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."

"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."

45 Re: Date Night on Fri Jan 06, 2017 5:51 pm

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."

"Not nothing," I scoff as I return to preparing our food. "I get the pleasure of your company, don't I? And I can't say no to a good meal, either."

I only grin as I watch him move back to finish prepping the fish.

"You're work is worth more than a bit of fish and company," I say, "Don't sell yourself short."

"Oh, I don't," I grin as I glance back toward her while slicing the citrus she had brought for the fish. "You mustn't tell anyone, but it's entirely possible that I grossly overcharge people I don't like or folks who have too much coin to their names. That allows me to help the folks like you who actually need my services, but can't necessarily afford it.

"It's a sort of... sliding scale," I shrug. "A sliding scale that discourages assholery in my shop. Really, it's a win-win for me."

"So am I at the bottom of that sliding scale?" I ask with a laugh, "Or do I have to really work to get the cheapest possible quote?"

"I'm still deciding," I smirk as I wink back at her. "Play your cards right, and you just might get VIP pricing and access to all the super secret projects no one else knows about."
