Waking after a deep sleep, a sleep of the exhausted both physically and magically. As he is drifting awake he ponders the fact that he felt drained of magical ability for the first time in his life and wonders if there is a limit that one day he might have to expend it all and it wouldn’t come back. “After all,” he thinks to himself, “it’s not like I know where this comes from in the first place.”
Attempting to not wake Te’teh, Jack slowly slides out of bed, tosses on a shirt. Pulling the pages given to him, Jack begins to read them as he sits down at the desk.
Te’Teh slowly rolls onto her left side so she can look at Jack. The grunting from her indicating the herculean task she is going through. Her dark skin peaking out from the covers and a single eye opens. Held between the duality or wanting to puke from the drink of last night and the desperate hunger she felt waking up with no breakfast she focused on him sitting in the chair. After what seems like an eternity to her she speaks.
“For all the gods why are you up?… and why havent they brought us food yet. I thought the noble apartments got breakfast.” She gazes around the room finally once again resting her eye on Jack.
Jack, turns to Te’teh and says, “it comes from living on a ship. You only get so much time to sleep no matter how long we were awake. So I only sleep for so long before waking up. I think we have to ask as they are letting us slee in.”
He stands and walks to the door asking, “Any special requests?”
Te’Teh rolls onto her back, pulling a pillow over her face she mumbles…
“I would love a new head and a new stomach… but if I could get some meat like bacon, sausage or anything I would appreciate it. I can’t live on all the vegetables the knife ears eat.”
She gazes around the room finally once again resting her eye on Jack.
Jack chuckled at her words and replies, “I’m not sure I can swing new organs. You had best ask Luke about that.” Moving to the door he opens it a bit and asks anyone nearby for a hearty breakfast full of meat and eggs for two. “And something hot to drink,” he adds before closing the door.
Returning to sit on the edge of the bed, gives Te’teh a gentle pat and says, “not long now.” Rummaging around the bed, Jack pulls on his pants and makes sure his belt is secure around his waist. “After breakfast I need to go find Alluria. I promised to tell her about sailing and travelling by sea and I don’t want to dissapoint her. I have a feeling she might never forgive me.”
Te’Teh still with a pillow over her face she mumbles… “Please kill me….” She peeks from under the pillow, a smirk on her face. “I don’t think she can hate any of you. She gets so excited when you, Key or Luke walk into her line of sight.
“No need to go that far. Some food will help. I’m sure.” Jack thinks for a moment and says, “Yeah, she won’t hate me but she’s always so excited and happy and I don’t want to extinguish that spark. I have a feeling a huge wave is swelling and about to crash down on us all. So I want her to have as much happiness as possible while she can.”
Te’Teh chuckles softly. “You are such a softie.”
She pulls herself out of the bed, and begins to dress. “That is a good idea to go see her. We also need to talk with Key and maybe Luke and figure out what our path is from here.”
“Shhh! That’s a secret! I’m a rough and tumble sailor with a reputation for drinking, whoring and carousing.”
Jack continues as he finishes getting dressed, “That’s a good idea. I guess we are heading back to Kokand as this trip was a momentary detour. We need to figure out the long term plan for sure. Shall we go and find them?”
Te’Teh looks thoughtful for a moment and then a lecherous smile crosses her face. She wiggles seductively for Jack for a few moments before her face goes slightly green and she abruptly stops.
“Never mind, I can’t move quick so maybe we should go find them..”
“Playtime later, when you’ve recovered.” Jack, holds the door for her as they head out to search for Key or Luke.
Te’Teh looks amused as she walks past Jack. All of a sudden she stops and a semi serious look crosses her face momentarily. She leans over and kisses Jack on the cheek then keeps moving past him, the smirk back.
