Ben's settled in the armchair in his room, head bent over his sketchbook.

This is a little harder without a certain Russian pilot in the room for comparison, but so far, he's making do.

It's...been a day, day here meaning 'twenty-four hours'.

This is not entirely why Ben gets a familiar knock on the door and a 'Venya, you in?' (she does, obviously, seeks his company for its own sake), but it accounts for that knock happens now.

(books are made for littering places, as far as Esfir is concerned)

He gets a small smile back, and ignore the tiredness, Ben.

"Thank you," she says, gratefully.

Raising an eyebrow slightly, Esfir obediently shuts her eyes.

"Should I...hold out my hand, or just keep eyes closed?"

She opens her eyes. She looks. She opens her mouth.

"You...drew me."

Very slowly, Fira starts to smile. Slow, but utterly delighted.
aimedforthemoon: (glamorous)

It widens into a grin.

"You have good eyes."
aimedforthemoon: (and then I will kill you)

She links an arm around his waist and leans into him.

"I stayed up most of last night babysitting Kate."
aimedforthemoon: (because I'm smarter than you)

"She was drunk enough that I thought it would be good idea for her to have company."

Company that is friend and female and not likely to take bullshit.

"She was angry." Beat. "Planning to talk to her once the hangover's died and I'm not so much like a zombie."

"Only a little bit." She stands up on her tiptoes, tugs him down slightly and kisses the corner of his mouth. "I'll be better company in a couple hours."

But now, sleep.
aimedforthemoon: (in the morning)

"Ah-huh." And with that, she crawls into bed. Like any good soldier, she's asleep within moments.

And, like any good soldier, she wakes up in exactly two hours.

"Mrrmm." It's more of a groan than an endearing moan or whimper. For a moment, Esfir just lays there with her face in the pillow. Then she nods, rolls over and rubs at the back of her head.

"I feel more alive."
aimedforthemoon: (in the morning)

[personal profile] aimedforthemoon 2009-08-26 10:55 pm (UTC)(link)
She thinks about that.

"No, I want to go and catch Katya while she's too hungover to run away."

Beat. An amused glance.

"Then...I could come back."

"Then I will."
