Iris Lark It's late evening in Avalon and there was a bit of excitement today. Iris managed to make it home, shower, dress in her work duds for later and start cooking dinner. She's cooking some chili and Bacon trots around holding a plush cat in his mouth as he tries to stir up mischief. She has invited Camilla from the Clinic to come, visit and eat. Rexus is also here, recovering from his injuries.
Rexus Rexus is indeed here! And injured.. isn't he always? "I swore I was going to take it easy but they came outta nowhere." he says, decrying his innocence to Iris. He is of course waiting at the table, leaning over and down to try to beckon Bacon a little closer for some scritches. If Iris were to look however, he'd quickly straighten up and put both hands on the table, trying to keep Bacon and his's relationship a top secret, need to know informational basis.
Camilla     Camilla had made her way out to Avalon, not one to pass up an invite from Iris to come over and visit. So, here she is, in the house as well and walking in to the main room. She sees Rexus and exhales deeply, "Let me get a look at you, and give Iris a chance to cook."
Iris Lark Iris walks out of the kitchen and starts to set the table, setting water at each place setting. "Oh he's fine, I pulled bullets, stitched and dressed all of those wounds last night." She murmurs, grinning at Camilla. "How are things at the Clinic?" She sets down some cut fruit and some flat bread. She points at Rexus and then points at Bacon. "He ate earlier, don't sneak him any fruit or bread."
Rexus Rexus tries to look innocent, "I wasn't feeding him, nope.. not me." he declares, shaking his head. His eyes look over to Camilla, giving a nod, "Ran into some.. err... deathclaws.. earlier.... i'm sworn to stay out of trouble for at least a week now... honest... no more exploring or scavenging.. just sit and relax..."
Camilla     Camilla listens to Iris and rolls her eyes as she lets out an exhale. "They're fine, as far as I can tell at least..." she replies plainly before looking back to Rexus. She folds her arms under her bust and cants a hip out to one side as she listens to his exclimation of his lack of desire to do more than sit. "Uh huh..."
Iris Lark Iris disappears back into the kitchen again for a few moments and when she reappears she has two bowls in hand. She leans over Rexus and sets a bowl in front of him. "Here, you asked for this last night." She murmurs, and then gazes up at Camilla and crooks a finger, pointing at a chair. "C'mon, before your chili gets cold, hon." She sets down the second bowl and turns back to the kitchen, disappearing inside again. When she reappears, she has a pitcher with sun tea and another bowl of chili. "As far as you can tell? Nothing has gone on, has it? I can take over for a few days if you'd like."
Rexus Rexus glances over at Camilla's bowl, "Oh no, certainly can't let it go cold." he says as he spoons up some chilli and munches. He blows on the chilli a bit to help the cooling process along, "I'm starved.." he murmurs, evidenced by how quickly he is eating. "Got lots of supplies? i imagine things will be getting a bit busier sooner than later."
Camilla     Camilla nods and moves to a chair, the one she was directed to and proceeds to begin to dig in to that chilli. She looks up as she does and shrugs her shoulders at Iris. "I, well, I think everything is fine really. If there's anything truly wrong, I would assume I would know, so..." she replies before digging in more. She shoots Rex a sidelong glance and nods a yes to his question. "Mmhmm, plenty."
Iris Lark "If you need a break, I can stay at the Clinic for a week or so..and you can just relax." Iris remarks, smiling over at Camilla. "Just let me know." She leans on the table and eats the chili slowly. She eyes Rexus, watching him eat for a moment before she speaks again. "So are you feeling better, and did you sleep all right?"
Rexus Rexus is busy shoveling the chilli into his mouth that it takes him a moment to realize Iris is talking to him! He swallows with a loud gulp, nodding, "Uh huh... nice and cozy... think I overslept cause I woke up to the piggy trying to lick my fingers." he grins, wiping his mouth with the back of one arm. "Feeling.. better.. still tired and sore, but I figure a few more days of relaxing'll do me good."
Camilla     "If I needed a break Iris, I'd let you know.." retorts camilla with a warm smile on her lips. With that, she just listens to Rexus reply to Iris, a smirk escaping between bites. Rexus must be silly to her.
Iris Lark Iris rests her chin on her palm and nods to Camilla as she slowly eats. Her eyes shift to Rexus and she purses her lips for a moment. "Are you going to rest here?" She asks, smiling at him. "You're more than welcome to, you know." She stands up, breaks apart some of the bread and passes it out. "I don't think I've sat in the living room much since I've moved in here."
Rexus Rexus takes the offered bread, dipping it into the chilli. Though, to prevent there being an over-abundance of chunky bits and not enough broth, he scoops up some of the meat and beans and such onto his bread.. pretending it's like a spoon just.. you can eat it. "I... think so.. least for the time being.. we'll see how things go but.. I'd hate to take materials for building a house when they could be put towards the wall." he says, looking back at Camilla, "Chilli's good!"
Camilla     Camilla just shoots Rexus a nod as she continues to eat her chilli.
Iris Lark Iris gets to her feet and walks her bowl into the kitchen to clean it. When she comes back out with three small plates she sprinkles some lemon juice on the fruit sitting on the table. "Have some." She urges before she gathers other empty plates and utensils. She pushes her hair behind her ears and pours some tea for both of her guests. "So you were relaxing today and decided to go out and help build for a bit?"
Rexus Rexus takes a moment to clean his bowl, scraping up all those last little dribs and drabs of leftover chilli before handing his bowl to Iris. Next, he attacks the fruit, taking a few pieces and gobbling them down with earnst hunger. The teacup is tugged a little closer, letting it cool while he eats the fruit. "Well, heard they needed some help so I thought I'd spend a few hours.. do some light work.. then those deathclaws showed up... luckily we chased'em off but.. I hope next time they get the patrols out a little sooner so they can put a full day of work in and not worry bout the workers gettin too scared to put some time in."
Camilla     Camilla just seems to be in her own little world. Enjoying the food, the company, and letting Iris and Rexus talk.
Iris Lark Iris scoops up some fruit and she points a spoon at Rexus. "Mind you, no more helping until the stitches are out, you can sit and tell them stories or something." She uses her firm mom voice. "There is plenty to do around the house that you can fuss with if you get bored. Just ask me and I'll happily point you in the direction of the plant boxes or the mounds of dishes I make every day."
Rexus Rexus laughs, chewing on his fruit. "Well, I gave'em the idea to put the stakes in but... I think I'll spend a few days just.. workin around town.. mending fences an... cleaning..." he says, "Might go look for some books.. found a new holodisk that i'm sure someone'll want."
Camilla     "One of these days, your desire to continue placing yourself in danger will be your ultimate end.." pipes up Cami out of the blue. "You should stay here, rest, help Iris around the house. The wall will get buitl with or without you.."
Iris Lark "What kind of holodisc, and I can find you enough to do here in the house where you'll be safe." Iris remarks, and then she chuckles at Camilla. "She's not wrong, but you might want to soften the blow a bit, just a tiny bit." She focuses on Rexus again. "Just say close for a day or two, make the Healer happy, so she'll treat you next time, you understand?"
Rexus Rexus stands as he finishes the last bit of fruit. "Something about construction." he says, referring to his holodisk. The big lug gathers whatever dirty dishes are left and ambles towards the kitchen, putting his money where his mouth is by helping with the washing up. "Yes Ma'am." he says, to both Camilla and Iris!
Camilla     Camilla smiles at Iris and nods as she stands up and moves to clean her dishes. With that done, she decides to head towards the door, "I need a walk. I'll be back in a bit."
Iris Lark "I like him." Iris says to Camilla, glancing towards the kitchen, a mirthful look on her face. She leans in and picks at her fruit, taking slow bites and chewing thoughtfully. "Be careful while you walk, Camilla, and I'll come find you to talk tomorrow?"
Rexus Rexus finishes the washing up after a bit, making sure they're all dry but.. it's not his kitchen so he isn't sure where everything goes so.. he leaves the putting them back bit to Iris. He returns to the living room area, finding a seat on the couch, "So... found some leather and that holodisk.. not much else sad to say."
Iris Lark Iris gets to her feet, pushes aside the bowl of fruit and shrugs as she walks to sit on an opposite couch. "You're not always going to find things, luck only seems to come in waves." She pulls a quilt over her legs and sips her tea. "I worry about Camilla sometimes."
Rexus Rexus glances back where Camilla was before she left, "I've.. only met her a few times.. seems like she has a lot on her mind... I'm worried she doesn't do enough relaxing... all work work and no play makes for a dull life... needs something to make her smile."
Iris Lark "Not too many people here who have things to smile about." Iris gets to her feet and sets the quilt aside. "I'll be right back, I need to get out of this getup." She mutters, thumbing towards her bedroom. She walks down the hallway and disappears briefly. When she returns she's dressed far mor casually. "There, that's a lot better."
