Sallie squints up her face a bit. It's an odd segue.

"What about 'im, baobei?"

"He was kind to me," Sallie starts.

"We met during Cubefall one year, and it was...lovely. Made me feel perfect."

"Mmm."

Sallie readjusts herself, laying her head in the joint of Splinter's shoulder.

"We, um...I suppose it was more me, in the end - stayed in contact. Had a lot of emotions tied up in each other. Came back around to Cubefall, got together again, but after that it was not something that could continue.

"He is definitely too different from where my life is for anything to...to work."

"For all his zen, he is far too angry at the world for someone as old as I am to be appealing. Sad can't mix with angry."

Not the best analysis ever, but it's close.

Sallie's hand after she moves gets to splay lightly on Splinter's chest, drawing some pattern with her forefinger that she hasn't planned out yet.

"I loved him. Still do, but it was always for a reason. Comfort or friendship or need or loneliness. It was never 'cause we just wanted the other person.

"And in the end he had a problem with my age."

"He is about 30-ish years younger 'n I am. Also dead. That complicated things on his end, not mine."

"For me? I wasn't the one that had a problem with Charlie's age, if that helps perspective-wise. Why?"

"Eighteen years.





"Does that bother you?"

Date: 2013-08-02 06:50 pm (UTC)
realmrsreynolds: (sallie is more badass than you)
From: [personal profile] realmrsreynolds
"True."

It'd be a little late, otherwise.






"Any more questions? 'Bout Charlie or anythin'?"

"Hell no."

Not that Sallie's worried about Splinter holding his own. That's not it at all.

"He made me feel perfect. Better." Sallie's finger dallies somewhere near Splinter's belly button.

"You make me feel like I already was perfect. Winner in that duel's already done."

Sallie slaps Splinter's belly with her palm.

Hamato Splinter you are damn lucky I love you."

"Flatterer."

Sallie doesn't mind.

"You want to get up at all? I got nothing on the agenda, but if I'm keepin' you..."

"My only example to follow has been Mike. Definitely haven't followed all those directions just yet."

But next to the alarm clock, Bar helpfully provides a pan of what looks to be brownies.

Sallie is incredibly suspicious.

"You don't think...

"Maybe Bar's suggesting we follow Mike's example."

About an hour later:






"I'm not sure I like brownies. At least when you're smoking it you're doing something."

Says the woman currently entirely under the covers, looking for...something, maybe.

realmrsreynolds: (sallie but lighter)
From: [personal profile] realmrsreynolds
"Maybe you're right. Like always."

Sallie comes back up for air again, smooching Splinter on the chin. "I got questions for you now though."

Date: 2013-08-02 08:52 pm (UTC)
realmrsreynolds: (stop and smell the flowers)
From: [personal profile] realmrsreynolds
"Mmmhmm."

But how to phrase it?

"Exactly when was it that you decided I was too good to pass up?"

Sallie remembers that. After the Lost and Found, and Sallie wouldn't - couldn't leave.

Then another thing floats up to the forefront of Sallie's brain -

("You're useful to me.")




"Still are soft. Even when you pretend not to be, I think."

"Okay," she agrees, even though it comes out kind of sleepy-sounding.

"Any other commands, sensei?"

Sallie makes a low sort of grumbly noise.

"Not sure I can guarantee that."
