My expression twists, first from momentary excitement to immediate skepticism and disapproval.

"Lavellan hired you?" I frown, ushering her in so I can close the door. I try to sound at least a little excited, but I'm not sure I manage it as I offer to help her with her bags. "Doing what??"

"Uhm, well the other day I just sort of stocked shelves and watched the man at the till, but this week I'll be running that, too." I say with a smile, hugging the bag to my front to give my hips a break as I go into the kitchen. 

"It's the one off on Willard Ave, by that blaggard owned bank." I continue, "It's a good job, Marn," I frown, "I'll be able to pay off all my bills by the third week of the month, now, instead of struggling."

"Well, that's good," I concede, still frowning lightly as I follow her into the kitchen. "But don't let him talk you into doing anything you aren't comfortable with. Some of his shops aren't exactly reputable, if you know what I mean. The one at Willard isn't so bad, though. The gal that runs it is... interesting."

"I don't think she was there," I shrug slightly, unpacking all of the items from the bag out onto the counter before turning back to him. 

"But enough about him and his shops, I want to celebrate, so come here."

"I'm coming, I'm coming," I grouse as I join her at the counter, poking curiously at her bag as I raise an eyebrow. "What did you bring, anyway?"

"You," I grin, reaching out to take one of his hands gingerly, "You are going to cook me baked trout. It's one of my favorites, and it's wonderful with a white wine.

"So, come here." I say as I pull his hand across the counter gently to the first parcel, "This is the trout, there's two in there. Then here," I say, moving to the next, "We have lemons, then the next is fennel bulbs and flowers." I say warmly as I look over at him, his arm wrapped in mine as I guide his hands over everything, "The bottles are olive oil and Pernod, for the fish. The last bottle is the wine I brought."

"I was just about to complain about how I'm supposed to be cooking you dinner," I grin as I run my hand over everything, getting a feel for each item before nodding. "I think I can manage this. How'd you afford all of this anyway? Surely, you haven't gotten paid yet?"

"No, I haven't," I say lightly, squeezing his hand fondly before releasing it and moving to put the wine in the fridge to chill, "But I had all those partial drops at my place. The ones I'd been saving for... I don't know, this, I guess.

"Some of them, especially those from Reach's End, went for a pretty good bit. I'm honestly a bit sour I'd been holding onto them, there were months where I was drinking broth and nothing but." I say with a slight laugh.

"Wait, what?" I frown as I glance back in her direction. "You sold all your trinkets..? To buy dinner for me?"

I frown as I shut the fridge, looking back at Marnin as I shrug. 

"Well, for us." I offer, "I wanted to celebrate, and I don't exactly have celebrating money so... Ya know, I found it. I've got no use for em, besides just sitting on my window sill." I say as I step towards him, reaching out to tangle my fingers in his,  "I feel like spending an evening with you is a far better use of them, don't you?"

"I can't argue with that," I smile, a warm fondness spreading through me as I scoot closer to Ljuba. Winding an arm around her waist, I sneak in to place a soft kiss on her cheek before smiling at her.

I smile fondly as his lips press to my cheek, squeezing his hand as I look up at him. 

"Now, you stink." I say sweetly, "So why don't you go take a shower, and I'll get everything down here sliced and prepped? Or... I don't know, go cut on that stereo and break into the wine?"

"Every time I go shower and leave you with the food, you always wind up cooking," I accuse as I reach over to squeeze her hip before shoving her away. "You go away and drink your wine. I'll take a quick shower once its in the oven."

Narrowing my eyes, I shake my head as I step away from the island to sit at the bar sans drink. 

"Liar." I say as I take my seat, "I'll drink my wine when you get in the shower."

"Ugh, you love my manly musk, admit it," I scoff as I try to subtly sniff myself. Blegh. "Yeah, yeah, okay... you win, this time. But only because I want to get the tape off my feet."

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!"

25 Re: Date Night on Sun Jan 01, 2017 2:51 am

"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."
