She nods. "Good."

She's mildly pleased with the easy way the woman agrees to that, most people say no over and over and wait till you're at your most vulnerable to change their answer to yes. 

"Thank you, for all of this. You're a really nice person."

Permalink

"Thanks. It's - one of the things I try to be. The sort of person people benefit from having known, and all."

Permalink

"Well, congrats. Success. I, um, should I just... Should I go introduce myself, or go sleep, or... what is the thing to do here?"

Permalink

"You'll want to introduce yourself at some point, but your host will understand if you're tired and want to wait until breakfast."

Permalink

"I'm terrible to talk to all the time, but more so in the mornings. I think I'd make a better impression now. Are they just through there or...?"

Permalink

"Yeah. Working on records, I think."

Permalink

"Coolness."

Ariadne wanders through to where Lianne came from to find her host, knocking politely before entering said persons space.

Said person invites her in. He's bent over a table, working in a ledger, but he glances up to Ariadne. "Hello," he says.

Permalink

"Hi. I just wanted to introduce myself so you weren't meeting me in the morning, I've been told I'm less than delightful. I'm Ariadne."

She extends her hand in an offer of shaking it, but doesn't push it particularly far into his personal space, letting it be clear through gesture alone that he is welcome to decline.

He turns, smiling a bit awkwardly. "I'm a bit of a shut-in, myself," he says, taking her hand and shaking it. "Still, I get all sorts through."

Permalink

He seems nice so she tries to actively not scowl in return. "Thank you for this. And is you need any help, I'm willing and... have no marketable skills, but I can learn."

Permalink

"Oh, I'm good, though I might want some help with dishes after meals..."

Permalink

"That, I know how to do. Well, thank you for this, good night."

Permalink

"Night."
