She settled in his lap, her silk against his leather. His arms instinctively wrapped 'round her waist, and he nuzzled her neck, provoking an appreciative "mmmm." She leaned forward, grabbing a notepad and pen. "Okay, so you have the Telenias as a second-in-command, right?"
"Well, delegate this stuff -" she underlined several notes - "to him. And this? This should be pretty easy. Just -"
He laughed quietly. She turned to him - "What?"
"I just don't know what I'd ever do without you, Jessa."
Yeah, so, he does end up having to figure out what to do without her. :(
In other news, I will shortly expire if I don't get root beer.
