I chuckle as I relinquish the mug willingly. "Just as well, not my cup of tea anyway," I confess as I take a drink of my own to wash the taste of the ale from my mouth as I follow her into the small room.

I make my way inside, setting my mug on a bedside table and my plate beside it before I turn to look at him with as much seriousness as I can muster. 

"Well?"

"Well, eat your jam, woman," I scoff as I wave at her dismissively. "I don't operate on demand. Sheesh, impatient much?"

"You're the one who promised me a month's worth of jam after a bit of sex." I shrug, offering a coy smirk as I sit on the edge of the bed to kick off my shoes. "But, fine. I'll eat my jam, I guess."

I lean over to nudge my shoes under the bed before getting up to strip from the heavier sweater and skirt I'd been wearing, leaving a loose linen shirt to hang around my hips over the soft woolen fabric of my leggings as I crawl onto the head of the bed. Pulling the plate of jammed bread into my lap, I rest against the headboard as I pop a bite into my mouth, nodding the plate towards him in vague offering.

I wave a hand vaguely as I take a seat on the opposite side of the bed and kick off my own boots before pulling them up onto the mattress. I have my own plate to busy myself with as I glance toward her with a raised eyebrow.

"A bit of sex," I repeat as I shake my head at her. "My dear, I was planning on robbing you of every hour of sleep you had hoped to get, and send you home more sore and tired than you were when you left."

"Yeah, well," I shrug with a laugh, looking at him tiredly as I pick at a piece of bread, "You can have mighty big plans, doesn't mean it'll happen that way.

"I've known plenty of people with big plans that just fell flat after a few minutes."

"Those people don't dabble in questionable magics like I do, do they?" I ask with a teasing wink from behind my mug. "My big plans don't fall flat unless I tell them to. That is, after I've committed to said plains. For the moment, I'm rather enjoying the company."

“Sounds like the ramblings of a man building excuses,” I retort, grinning as I pop another bite of bread in my mouth.

"I'd ask if you're really that eager for a bit of sex, but I'm sure you'll say it's for the jam," I laugh as I take a bite of steak.

“You has some, don’t act like it wasn’t amazing.” I say, pointing at him menacingly.

"Yes, but have you ever had sex?" I ask with a raised eyebrow. "Because I rather like it - moreso than jam."

“You are really building all these expectations for me and I just hope you can deliver,” I shrug, “I’m not good at lying, I d’know if I’ll be able to spare your feelings if you’re awful.”

"Well, not to sound selfish, but it won't be terrible for me, will it?" I ask as I cock an eyebrow at her with a laugh. "And what'll it cost me? Some jam and a bit of wounded pride? Hopefully I'll be too spent to care about the last bit, or at the very least, I can learn from it and do better."

“You’re a silver lining kind of guy, aren’t ya?” I laugh, setting my plate off to the side as I grab the mug to begin working on the ale.

“So do you usually pick up strangers in bars with promises of jam?”

"Jam, gravy, catsup," I smirk with a shrug. "I'm a condiments kind of fellow, what can I say?

"In all seriousness, though," I say as I take another bite of my food and stretch my legs out to get more comfortable. "What is it that you're hiding from here in these walls? Is your home life really so bad that you need to run to an inn to escape?"

66 Re: Poor Life Decisions on Sun Dec 31, 2017 2:58 am

“It’s not like that,” I shake my head lightly, resting the mug in my lap as I run my fingers through the sweat beading on the glass, “I’m not hiding from warring parents or some abusive spouse, it’s just... I d’know, sometimes there are things at home you can’t deal with so you need to distance yourself for a bit.

“For me, that something is my desiccated brother.”

I wince at that, nodding my understanding quickly. "Understandable that you would prefer not to be around that," I say gently. "I have known people who underwent the desiccation. They're not the same people anymore, are they?"

“Not even close,” I groan, taking a long drink from the mug before stretching my legs out and sinking unceremoniously against the headboard.

“He comes ‘round every few months to see his kids, then he’s back to whatever haze he crawled out of. I used to try, really try, ya know? But now I can’t even look at him.”

"Sadly, there's little to be done for such people," I sigh heavily as I swirl the contents of my mug thoughtfully. "They have to want to come back from that dark place, and not many do. It's - easier? Or so I'm told. Personally, I could never imagine such a life of emptiness and painful desperation."

“Well, whenever he comes, I sneak off here and hide for a couple days.” I sigh, taking a drink from my mug and staring at the wall across from me. “Took me a bit to get what I needed to pay for the room, but if it means I don’t have to go home today, it was worth it.”

"So you have his kids?" I ask uncertainly, already suspecting that that isn't the case.

"Wha-" My expression pinches at first before the question registers a bit and I shake my head. "No, no... Their mum is a childhood friend of mine." I answer with a shrug, shifting in my spot on the bed so I can finish the ale in my mug and set the mug off on the table. 

"I did not invite you up here to whine about my housemate and my brother, though," I sigh, glancing up at him with a tired grin, laughing as I continue. "You don't want to hear about them, surely. It's sweet you're pretending, but you don't have to."

"Who's pretending?" I ask with a raised eyebrow as I scoop up the last bite of my food and spoon it into my mouth before settling back against the headboard with a contented sigh. "Maybe I plan to complain about my situation, and I'm only preparing the conversation so you have no choice but to listen? Quid pro quo, or whatever it is they say."

"Joke's on you," I quip, smirking as I stretch out and sink further onto the bed, "I'm a rotten listener."

"Maybe that's how I prefer it?" I laugh as I put my plate off to the side and take a swig of my cider before setting that aside, too. "At least as far as chit chat goes."
