"She can't hear me," Mairon responds with a dismissive wave of his hand. "But fine. I've had my fuss, I feel better."

I nod softly as I look back to the woman, frowning sharply at her grave features and pained breaths. 

"When will she wake up?"

"Not anytime soon, if she's lucky," Mairon responds quietly, his features softening a bit as I linger near the kitchen to watch from a distance. He seems gentler without me near and without Ljuba awake. "I've given her the tonic to soothe her stomach. It should begin working within a few minutes. I'll give her some time to rest and give the stimulant time to work, and then I'll give her the flush."

"Do you need anything?" I ask, sitting near the woman's feet as I watch Mairon, "You'll be here for awhile..."

"You don't need to wait on me, Win," Mairon frowns slightly, his voice almost imperceptible. "You know that."

"I know," I respond softly, smiling as I reach over to brush his hand lightly. "Aodhagan is making something to eat, do you want something to drink until then? There's a kettle on."

"Please," Mairon sighs in acceptance. It's not difficult to tell that he's only recently learned to accept help from others, and even accepting the small gesture of a drink seems to pain him.

I smile at his accepting, rising up to plant a soft kiss on his temple before returning to the kitchen. 

"Is it done?" I ask, pointing from my ear to the kettle as I pass Aodh.

"Yeah, done enough," I nod as I slip back into the kitchen, my gaze lingering for a moment on Mairon as he busies himself with Ljuba. As he picks up a comb to detangle her hair and brush out the sick clinging to the ends, I let out a sigh as I turn my attention back to fixing dinner.

"Do either of you have any allergies or diets or anything I should know about before I start adding things to the soup?" I ask after brushing a hand across Winifred's arm to get her attention.

"Meat." I say abruptly, nodding as I look down at his pot, "We don't eat your... meat." I add with a shrug, unsure of the wording as I look back to Aodh. The look he gives me makes me question myself, and I laugh nervously as I sign the words out of habit. 

"That seems wrong, am I saying it wrong?"

"No, it's fine," I respond with a faint smirk. "So you're... Vegetarian?" I ask, unsure if that's a term they might have in this realm. "Or... Um, Halal? Is that a thing here?" I laugh nervously as I start to babble aimlessly. "I mean, when you say my meat, I assume it's some sort of religious thing because of the... Earthy stuff? Is druidism a religion here?? No, I don't think it is, is it?"

I struggle to follow his train of thought as I keep glancing at what he's putting into the soup, my eyes widening a bit as he moves to dump a chopped carrot in.

"No!" I practically yelp (Tone is lost on me) as I grab his hands and shake my head, "We don't eat anything we didn't kill ourselves," I clarify, pulling the carrots from his hands so I can put them back on the cutting board. "Including plants."

"Oh, oops," I frown as I glance in the pot to make sure there are no carrots in there. "But other stuff is okay? If the plant doesn't die? I have some peas and squash... some celery and... I don't know, maybe some beans and stuff? Wow, this is not turning out at all like I planned."

"Sorry," I shrug apologetically, "We don't eat away from home often... But yes, as long as nothing was killed, it's okay."

"Oh, it's alright," I smile back at her as I start digging around for different ingredients. "Pauper's Feast is my specialty. I know how you make it taste good no matter what ingredients I have to work with. I can make day old garbage fit for a king."

"You cook a lot?" I ask curiously, grinning a bit as I glance to see the counter is clear before hoisting myself upon it. The kettle was hot, but wasn't steaming - a lecture I've gotten since I was little - so I leave it to heat further.

"Yeah, been underfoot in a kitchen since I was little," I nod as I put on the mixture of beans to do a quick soak before I set to work chopping up the odd assortment of vegetables. "I work at a shop right now, but I also put in time as the cook at a friend's kitchen when he needs it, too.

"But mostly I just cook for myself," I shrug. "And Lju, of course. Poor girl would forget to eat if I didn't put the bowl under her nose, I swear."

"It's sweet the way you take care of her," I say, glancing towards the kettle before back to Aodh. "Mairon's told me about people like your sister, and they just get abandoned..." I frown.

"I could never do that to her," I frown as I glance back at Winifred solemnly. "I've been that person before - left alone with no one to turn to when I was scared or hungry or sick..."

I trail off after that, my lips tightening slightly as I question the wisdom in sharing that. It creates questions; pokes holes in the story Ljuba spun for us.

"If Lju hadn't come for me, I don't really know what would have become of me," I admire. "But from what I've been told, it would not have been much better than where I was."

"So you two," I start, thinking of the words as I purse my lips slightly, "You didn't come up together? As children, I mean?"

"I didn't say that," I respond evasively, my heart skipping a little bit as I glance at her out of he corner of my eye. Frowning a little bit at the way she watches me, I sigh and shrug my shoulders as I shake my head in response.

"Was she married off?" I ask, curiosity piquing as my head cocks slightly, "I was when I was very young, and I haven't seen or spoken to my family since. How did she get back to you?"

123 Re: The Fuck..? on Thu Aug 31, 2017 7:36 pm

"I, um..." I frown at that, my brows knitting together as I look her over more closely. "Wait, so... Mairon is your arranged... husband? What? Or did you get divorced? Widowed?"

124 Re: The Fuck..? on Thu Aug 31, 2017 7:39 pm

"Oh, no," I laugh softly, "Mairon isn't my husband, the man who had me before was."

"What happened?" I ask, my expression still pinched with concern, the knife and vegetables forgotten in my hands as they rest on the counter.

"This is not an appropriate conversation for strangers," Mairon calls from the living room, his voice rough and full of warning. "Find a new subject."
