Zoi laughed. “Does it really count as being social if we are in your bedroom all the time?” It was clear her question was a jest and she leaned forward. “I don’t mind taking recommendations like that to heart.”

Dira gave a throaty chuckle in reply. “Everything in moderation, my dear.”

Zoi’s hand slid along the space between them so that she could entwine her fingers with this enchanting woman. When she had finally left her mother with the thought of living her life for herself now, she could not have guessed she would find a relationship like this. Even at its beginnings, this relationship was stable and fun, light at times and deep at others. There were surprises and steady moments too. Her heart swelled as she looked at this woman before her.

Squeezing Zoi’s hand gently, the telepath gazed deeply into Zoi’s eyes. For a brief moment she felt lost in them. “And to think we could have just had a normal meet and greet meeting in an office somewhere. I think if we had things might have gone differently. I’m so glad they didn’t!” she said before lifting their entwined hands and kissing the back of Zoi’s hand.

Releasing her hand , Dira started to test out their eclectic food choices.

She laughed softly and nodded. Had they met in the usual manner, would they have explored the chemistry between them? Clinical settings didn’t lead easily to flow and conversation. In one fell swoop, they had broken the ice and started the process of getting to know one another. It had been a fairly intimate setting. Good food, good lighting, mood music and a relaxed atmosphere could break down walls normally in place to keep professionalism in its place. Still, as she looked at the woman before her, Zoi had to shake her head. “No.” She said with a grin. “I think it would have taken us longer, but we would have gotten to this place eventually. There is a chemistry that we can’t deny and I certainly don’t want to.”

For a long moment, Dira gazed deeply at Zoi as she chewed, savouring both the food, and the woman beside her. “Neither do I,” she said softly.

“You know, for a long time after Paige died, I cut myself from others. I didn’t realize until a little while after I had requested a transfer just how isolated I had made myself. It was like the grief was so overwhelming that there wasn’t room for anything else. I could go to therapy sessions, but I think there was a small part of me that didn’t believe what we were doing, what we were talking. How could there exist a reality where she wasn’t there with me every day. I’ve had casual flings and sought company when I needed it, but this is the first time in what feels like forever that I feel ready for more. And it’s been the most wonderful revelation,” she said, a deep smile etched into her ridged features.

Zoi nodded. She understood well the desire to isolate and then realizing how detrimental it eventually had become to her own life. Her mother had become her sole companion, the doctors a distant second for far too long. She barely remembered the last person she had tried to have a relationship with. Had they been blond or a light brunette? Was it sad she couldn’t remember?

For a moment, she simply was distant, trying to pin it down, even as she said. “I can completely understand.” Then she shook herself and let the memories go, coming back to the present and the woman beside her. “It wasn’t even me that had noticed you know? Grieving my still living mother. My mother’s doctor was talking to me one day about a medical trial when he stopped talking for a minute and then asked me … completely serious… ‘When is the last time you had a date?’. I was so confused.”

She laughed and shook her head. “I thought he was trying to get me to have an affair with him. He quickly explained, but it made us both blush to even continue that conversation.”
