"No? Why not?"

Sunae shrugs

"I couldn't tell you. Fire, I probably could. Anyone else, I don't even bother to try."

Kyle raises an eyebrow but won't let on why.

Sunae leans over and gives him a tender kiss on the cheek.

"You're so sweet."

She nuzzles him for a moment before pulling away. She takes a deep breath as she pushes her bottle of beer away.

"I think I have had a bit more than I expected. Sorry about that."

She takes another breath before answering

"First off, I cannot for the life of me, understand how anyone with half a brain would think I could be a Malakite."

"Second...I know her story and I understand she is acting according to her nature. More than that, she is not an active threat and she has her use."

Sunae shrugs

"Remember, good or bad, my family follows the old ways."

He lets that lie--firmly, deliberately, and with as little ambiguity as his silence will allow.

"Nothing to be sorry for." He reaches a hand across her shoulders, gently tugging her towards himself. He will back off at the slightest resistance; he knows the move is rather forward.

She does resist a little bit, only enough for her to move her chair closer to him and allow her to comfortably rest her head on his shoulder. She has one arm around his back with hie hand resting on his side.

"I like your cologne."

He turns his head and snuffles her hair, taking advantage of their difference in height. His other hand covers hers, inviting it to stay on his side awhile longer. Then he stares at the two angels, daring them. A silent conversation crosses the table between he and Corat, but its meaning is clear enough.

Corat stops chewing and stares. You were not going to do this. You had plans.

Had. Too late.


The look

Sunae rests her head against his shoulder. She is content. Although she appears to be dozing off, she is alert. If anything attracts her attention, she will immediately open her eyes and assess the possible threat.

When looks across the table fail to get his message across, Ryuki mutters to Corat, "I wish you spoke Latin."

"Tu ergo priuatimue de ea loqui?" Kyle is apparently fluent. Not just a dumb lunk, as if anyone thought he was. He's also mildly sarcastic.
So you could talk privately about her?

"You love her..." Corat's tone of voice is ambiguously between a question and a statement.

"No." He pauses, struggling with words. "Ipse emit familia mea, ut servi, si ego dabo illis verdes--verbis."
He bought my family as the servants of, if I give them the green--(oops)--words

"Your grammar is terrible. Unless I heard you wrong, he can't be that bad."

"You haven't met him."

Sunae opens her eyes and looks at Ryuki then at Corat. She straightens herself, stretches and gets up. She does not appear to have heard the exchange between Ryuki and Corat. Either that or she is ignoring it completely.

"I'll be back." She looks around briefly before asking a passing waittress, "Where's the restroom?"

As soon as she gets her answer, Sunae heads off.
