He looked at confusedly for a second and then grinned. “I was talking to Lilly, goofball. You are stuck with me for the foreseeable future, sorry.” and henlaughed and moved out if the bedroom and into his studio. He looked around and took a breath. “Nope… movers can deal with this.”


Her laughter followed him out of the room. Revna put the last of what she wanted in the chest and closed both. She went into the spare bedroom looking for a particular crate. Weaving through the crates she flipped the lid. It was a special crate, built by Oddvar for storing a d transporting their weapons. Revna’s bow and arrows were already in there. She went into the living area where mounted on the wall were a b@stard sword, a claymore, and her shield. She carried the smaller sword and shield into the room and secured them in the crate. “Mike, you wanna pack your claymore yourself?”

“AYE!” he bellowed from the front of the apartment.

“I’m done, packers can do the rest. Now I am taking a shower and a really long hot bath. If you don’t join me I will be very disappointed.”


“In a minute!” he yelled. “I’m trying to make sure we have all the diplomatic gifts and such cataloged and ready to be packed up! Shower and I’ll see you in the bathtub!”


Revna paused and turned around, blinking almost owlishly back down the hallway. Did Mike just say he was cataloging diplomatic gifts? She wanted to ask who he was, where he punk rocker husband went and what would spiked mohawk wearing Bubba say about that? But no comment came to mind.

She was tired. How long had it been since she collapsed in the bed and Mike told her to get naked or help pack? She glanced at the clock and decided it wasn’t worth the effort of the mental math. Her clothes left a short but direct trail into the bathroom. The shower was refreshing but the bath…oh this bath she was going to miss. She sank into the deep hot water that teased the nose with a hint of Jasmine oil. She put her head back and closed her eyes.


The splash was epic. The amount of water that left the bathtub made the automatic refill shoot on,and rivulets of water cascaded down the mirror to join the numerous puddles on the floor. Mike surfaced from under the water of the giant soaking tub and laughed loudly. “Holy crap but you were asleep.” he said with another laugh. “I told ya to wake up or I was gonna do a cannonball… so this is actually your fault.”… and more laughter.


Revna was literally floating in intoxicating warmth and soft silence. Completely unaware of of anything but sleep. Then she was not. Jostled wildly by the sudden significant displacement of water over her, away, and splashing back down. A mouthful of water and the sudden disappearance of all that decadent warm water woke her. For half a second, less really, she was cold and couldn’t breathe again. She couldn’t breathe. Mike? Where was Mike?....he was laughing… Then she realized she was coughing and sputtering. There was nothing wrong with her lungs. Coughing would work better if she wasn’t floating on her back. She dropped her feet and sat on the edge of the tub, until the fit passed. “My…cough…fault?” Her breath heaved a few times as she shook her head. “I didn’t think there was any way for you to wake me up I would not like. I now have a list of 1.” She cleared her throat one last time and mock glared at him, even as the corners of her mouth twitched. She kicked a spray of water at him (pathetic really, as the water hadn’t refilled), but it more made a tiny ripple in the water.
