"If this were a movie what would everyone be shouting at the screen about now?" wonders Tarinda.

-- how different can the genre conventions in the future be --

 

"...is there ominous music?" she asks, tentatively, because that's the only way this makes sense.

Permalink

"Nope."

Permalink

 

 

 

 

"'Kiss her already'?"

Permalink

"Mm-hm."

Permalink

 

 

 

 

 

"May I kiss you."

Permalink

"Yes you may."

Permalink

...Jeanne leans up and kisses her, very, very cautiously, like she's half expecting Tarinda to push her away in horror.

Permalink

Nope! No horror! No ominous music! Only kissing.

Permalink

 

Oh.

That's ... really, really good. Really really.

Snuggling up in Tarinda's lap and kissing her (and maybe crying a little but in a good way) is possibly the best thing that has ever happened to her.

Good. They can keep doing that, Proster is not going to kick them out of the room.

Jeanne does break away, after a minute, and takes a second to gather her thoughts enough to ask, hesitantly: "...is Cory...?"

Permalink

"She doesn't mind, I checked. On principle, anyway, not necessarily every practical conflict, I might have to schedule you around her more than vice versa, I mean, I did wake her up on the premise that I was going to be her dream girlfriend."

Permalink

"Of course," Jeanne agrees, earnestly, and returns to kissing her.

Permalink

Yaaaay!

A teleporter deposits Zari in the room and pops away. 

 

“Um,” she says. 

Permalink

Tarinda pauses kissing Jeanne.

Permalink

"...sorry, this is what happens when you employ teleporters with no notion of social niceties," Zari says, automatically, and then blinks at the scene some more.

Permalink

 

"It's not what it looks like!"

Permalink

"It's not?" says Tarinda. "Hi, you must be Zari. I'm Tarinda."

Permalink

"Hi, Tarinda. My sister means that she isn't sexually manipulating you for opaque and idiosyncratic reasons."

Permalink

"I see. I believe myself quite unmanipulated, yes."

Permalink

-- she glances at Jeanne, concerned.

Permalink

"I keep telling her everything!"

Permalink

Pat, pat? "I don't know how much you've heard already."
