"You can have people carry you to dinner, if you'd like, if walking still hurts after the baby is born."

Permalink

"Okay.

"...you could probably also eat dinner in here, if you wanted. Instead of at the big fancy table."

Permalink

"I'm not supposed to come into your rooms. I know I've been bad about that, and I hope it wasn't the wrong decision, but - they're supposed to be your space you don't have to worry about being presentable or being acceptably occupied or anything in."

Permalink

 

"I guess I might not have enough emotions right now to determine whether I'm going to care about this in the future."

Permalink

Nod.

"It seems like one should be able to stop caring whether I am presentable or acceptably occupied for eating dinner in my room, and like you could still avoid coming in at times that haven't been scheduled. But I don't - really know all of what I'm going to care about."

Permalink

"Me neither. I guess you can think about it and let me know."

Permalink

"I'm not sure I have the right - pieces. For figuring that out yet."

Permalink

"Well. I hope you get them back."

Permalink

 

"Okay.

"I might - need to talk to you more. To figure out where they went. I dunno yet."

Permalink

"Well. I'm here and I want to help you."

Permalink

"Okay.

"It might be kind of upsetting, and stuff."

Permalink

"I gathered that."

Permalink

"Okay.

 

"Do you understand that - even though you didn't explicitly ask for most things, there are a bunch of pieces that I gave you anyway, and I made new ones that I thought you would - be less angry with - and I don't entirely know how to get the old ones back but I suspect that I probably have to get them back by - talking to you. About how it is okay for me to be."

Permalink

"Yes. I understand that. I am not upset you did that, I believe you that you had to do that to live as my wife at all in this place, but I think now we can do better."

Permalink

"Okay. I will try to help you help me, then.

"The only other question I have now is - whether you think it would be better to start now, or wait until the baby's here, because - I am worried that it might be stillborn or very disabled or something, and I will be halfway healed but very very fragile, and you will want to try again immediately, and I won't - have as much affordance to rearrange myself in ways that can be fixed."

Permalink

"Oh. I think I wouldn't have to start again immediately but - I couldn't just plan to never. So - maybe better to wait?"

Permalink

Nod.

"Okay.

"I will talk to Zakiya about donating money."

Permalink

"I'm glad. I love you."

Permalink

...nod.

Permalink

"Should I go?"

Permalink

"...I don't think it would harm me either way, right now.

"It would probably not hurt anything for you to stay and eat dinner here, if you wanted. You could complain about stupid politicians. Or whatever."

Permalink

"Okay. I will do that."

 

He has dinner brought in. He complains at some length about several months worth of stupid politicians.

She has no idea what the Osirian political situation is but is capable of coming up with responses that are appropriate and make logical sense, most of the time. It helps to have enough presence of mind to follow most of the conversation.

It is a significant improvement. He feels very encouraged. 

 

He makes a habit of it.
