raspberryturk: (Oh Thank Shit)

Office Hours, Thursday

Reno... really didn't have anything better to do today but come and hang out in his office, no.

Okay, sure, so there was the mother of all freaking bouquets on his desk, courtesy of his smart-assed co-teacher. And the flowers were starting to go a little...

Uh. Soggy, Reno supposed, was a good word for it.

So he was here today, up to his elbows in rotting flowers, with his nose wrinkled as he picked out all the valuable little nick-nacks from inside of it.

Pearls? Seriously?

The one upside, anyhow, was that Reno could sell some of this crap off and send the money back to Edge or Junon or something. This monster could totally go a long way, back home. Not that he suspected for an instant that maybe something like that was what Genesis had in mind...

[Open door, open office! Since I remembered that Reno actually has one of these things, today!]

And there was a chirpy Al Bhed lingering in his doorway. Maybe not all that chirpy, today, but she seemed ... more centered, somehow.

"You busy?" she asked.

"Should I be jealous?" she teased, nodding to the bouquets with a flicker of a smile. "If some pretty girl's been sending you flowers, I need to go knock her teeth out."

She paused to sniff them with a frown. "How come you let them go bad?"

"Okay," Rikku said, considering that. "He can hit on you, so long as I get to watch."

That was totally fair.

"How is your class going?" she asked. "Sorry I took longer to get back than I thought I would. Yunie's not ... always the easiest to track down."

"Okay, fess up," she laughed. "Are you just amusing yourself by torturing them? You can tell me."

She took a seat, watching the flowers for a bit. As if they might do tricks.

"I ... don't know," she admitted. "I said a lot of things I really needed to say. I'm ... not sure she gets it. But I ... it felt good to say, even if she doesn't, you know?"

"Yeah," she agreed. "It's ... really good to just have them out there. Maybe I don't give her enough credit. Maybe she does understand. But I kind of feel like ... like maybe I'm free of it. Like maybe even if she doesn't understand ... I don't have to ... let that dictate what I do, or how I feel."

It was kind of horrible to say out loud, and at the same time, it felt so good. Cleansing.

"I can't ... I don't even know how to thank you," she said. "For ... everything."

"Grooooooss," she laughed. Not at him, or the hug, but rather, the rotten flower goo.

And, well, because joking about things that didn't matter was way easier than talking about things that did.

"They kinda smell funky," she said, along that same vein. "Maybe you should throw them out, zoto."

"It makes sense," she said easily, leaning up to drop a kiss on his cheek. "Do you want some help? We could peel out the bad parts and make some pretty bouquets out of the rest."

Anakin rapped on the door jamb after his Ethics class. "Do you have a moment?"

Anakin's thinking was along similar lines. "Nice office," he said. "You got flowers?"

Anakin was being a little avoidy today.

"You never really struck me as the type to care about interior design," Anakin agreed.

He took a deep breath. "I've been spending some time counseling Zack recently," he began.

"I believe the various timelines here have given him a glimpse at his future that he wasn't entirely prepared for," Anakin replied equally cautiously.

"You've seen my various family members around the island," Anakin said. "I know the issues that can crop up." He ran his fingers though his hair. "I won't tell him anything, but I was wondering if I could get the story from you, just so I help...ease his mind."

Anakin nodded. "You can trust my discretion," he said quietly. "Would you like me to chase the squirrels away?"

[NP! My brain is scattered too ;)]
