Everything is...not back to normal.

Because everything is different, now, so there may be something called normal, but it's not what was.

But she spoke with Edmund, and there are others she'll speak with, and she feels...she feels almost better. A little.

Except it's quiet in their room, and ever time she glances up from her book and sees Caspian her face goes bright red.

From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
Caspian's face has not stopped being red for...well, going on the last twenty minutes or so, at least. He's paying very strict attention to the ledger, making adjustments and notes and...

And not quite looking up at Lucy.

Still, it isn't the cool silence of their fights earlier, nor is it terribly heavy.

Only very, very, very awkward.

the_seafarer: (we-ell...)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"Er."

He glances up from the ledger, and immediately blushes even brighter.

"I don't...really know what to say." One hand lifts, helplessly, and returns to the paper.

"...do you?"

Date: 2006-10-31 07:37 am (UTC)
the_seafarer: (not quite certain)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
He winces, a little.

"That was never my intention. Lu--" But she's angry and frustrated and the best thing to do is not to stay where he is. He stands, and makes his way across the room to sit by her instead.

"None of that was...was wrong, you know."

Date: 2006-10-31 07:48 am (UTC)
the_seafarer: (we-ell...)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"Not being wrong doesn't make it any less different," he says, and rubs at the back of his neck.

"None of it has to happen again, if that's what you'd rather."

From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"So do I."

His voice is gentle, and so is his hand when he reaches out for hers, because she is sad and he can't not touch her.

"I suppose--it's up to us, what we should, and shouldn't do. I shouldn't do anything that you wouldn't want, but that is all I know. We didn't--I never thought--"

He takes a breath.

"Before. I suppose I always thought we shouldn't, too."

Date: 2006-10-31 10:00 pm (UTC)
the_seafarer: (narnian lord)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"Because--well, because--"

He frowns. It used to make sense, and then it didn't any longer (thanks to the hot chocolate), and now he remembers why it made sense, but isn't at all sure he believes it after all.

"No one ever told me about any of that, before," he ventures, and it's true enough.

He thinks that discussing what he and his first wife may or may not have done together will not help the situation at all.

Helpless, he shrugs a little. "I don't know, Lucy. I used to think I knew what was right and what was wrong, and now it's all been mixed up. I'm still not certain it's right, either, but...none of it felt wrong. At least not then."

the_seafarer: ([dt] where the waves grow sweet)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"It isn't anything I've ever expected to talk about, I think," he says, a little ruefully, but his fingers tighten in hers and they are warm and steady.

"Somehow in the midst of learning how to be a general and a dimplomat and how to reconcile the Telmarines with the Narnians, my tutors seem to have skipped that lesson."

Date: 2006-10-31 10:35 pm (UTC)
the_seafarer: (laughing)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
He laughs a little, and his ears are a litte pink, but for now his blushing seems to be under control.

"What did it feel like? It felt...just...good, I suppose."

The problem is in trying to define it, he thinks. At the time, he hadn't been thinking in terms of what it felt like, or whether it was right to do. He'd been too busy just trying to keep breathing.

Date: 2006-10-31 10:59 pm (UTC)
the_seafarer: (we-ell...)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"Good," he echoes, again, because he isn't certain what else to say, and runs his free hand up into his hair.

"...do you really think it wrong?" It's uncertain, and he's uncertain, but at least the damned instability of mind from the chocolate has gone on its merry way.

From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
His arm goes around her back and his rests his cheek on her hair, his chest moving up and down in a silent exhalation.

"I want to know who decides these rules," he says, and it's a little grumbled and a little teasing and a little wry, still.

He's almost certain that Bacchus, at least, would approve.

"I love you. I want to make you happy, to do what you want.

"At least if we're wrong, we're going about it together." The last is said with a bit of a grin.

Date: 2006-11-01 05:09 am (UTC)
the_seafarer: ([dt] where the waves grow sweet)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"You and I are wedded," he says, gently, but his voice is firm. "And what we do in our bed is our business and ours alone. We get to decide this, Lucy--no one else. And besides--"

He leans away far enough to grin down at her.

"It isn't as though you and I haven't risked being wrong before, is it?"

Date: 2006-11-01 05:19 am (UTC)
the_seafarer: Screencap by Georgia (generally adorable)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"Do we so often make the wrong choices?"

He isn't accusing, only curious. It isn't a way he's thought of their lives before, and it's rather uncomfortable to look back on his life with such a perspective.

Date: 2006-11-01 05:31 am (UTC)
the_seafarer: (sea gray)
From: [personal profile] the_seafarer
"We needn't, you know."

And it isn't even hard to offer--of all the things that might be good or right or wrong, there is always something else, and the important part is that it is Lucy he is with.

"Perhaps it isn't right or wrong, but if it troubles you, then we shan't try it. That, at least is wrong."
