: : : Simon watched her as she began eating. He hadn't thought of himself as particularly domestic, or romantic, but there was just something right, something warm and comforting about this moment and he wanted it to last.

: : : "I will have to remember about the rasberries for the next time. Assuming of course that you're open to a next time.

: : Marina looked up at him for a moment, as if pondering the question. Seeming to need longer to respond, she sipped some of the coffee before replying. "I am open to it…"
: He favored her with a big grin, "I'm glad to hear that. It was really nice sleeping with you, even if we just slept.

"I agree. But I should warn you that it is a somewhat difficult thing for me. I cannot say I have experience with men, very little in fact, and there are certain…
complications in my life, especially now that have made it very difficult to have even normal friendships, Marina said softly.
: : : Spring is actually my favorite season, but I really like the summer too. I don't like the cold much, so I'm not really a huge fan of winter."

: : "You probably wouldn't like Zalda much then, or where my maternal family lives. Zalda's only surviving landmasses, which are tiny, are near the poles and are cold and rather wind-blown. And my mother's parents have a winery near the foot of the Alps. Beautiful summers, snowy winters…" Marina said with a grin. "Though I should say that most of the platform cities on Zalda are more equatorial, so they are warmer overall.
: : Jusaro, CSO
: "I think I'd have to stick to the platform cities then," he replied, "Unless I had some way to keep warm."
: Simon, COS
It was either fortunate or unfortunate that Marina didn't get innuendo or at least didn't read too deeply into things. "Well, there are some wonderful outer-garments you can get there. Very light but very warm. My father brought me back a jacket one year when I was a child. The piece only weighed 750 grams but kept me warm through Iadara's worst winter."
