The Log

* Zuleykha is better now than she was a week ago, her wound seems to be healing pretty well
* Haidar is also better, is able to sit up for short periods of time
* Haidar has gotten up and walked around some, too
* Haidar is resting now, though
<Haidar> I feel so useless
* Zuleykha is also resting
* Zuleykha scoots a little closer to him
<Zuleykha> me too
<Haidar> your back's looking a lot better, though
<Zuleykha> Yeah, I feel better
<Zuleykha> but still useless
* Zuleykha reaches out to stroke his cheek
* Haidar nods and leans into her hand a bit
* Zuleykha smiles at him
<Zuleykha> but we're both getting better
<Haidar> yeah
<Haidar> I just wish I could help more
<Haidar> it's not easy for me to sit around while Yasamin runs herself ragged
<Haidar> I don't think she's been eating or sleeping enough
* Zuleykha nods
<Zuleykha> I don't think so either, but...
<Zuleykha> it's hard to do much about it
<Haidar> I suppose
* Haidar turns onto his side so he can see her better
* Zuleykha smiles at him
* Haidar smiles back
<Haidar> has she said much to you about the engagement?
<Zuleykha> not so much... I mean, she has congratulated me, of course...
<Haidar> she's been quiet about it
<Zuleykha> yeah...
* Zuleykha frowns a little
<Haidar> she didn't seem to disapprove, though
<Zuleykha> no, I don't think she disapproves...
<Zuleykha> but... *shifts a little so she's facing him more*
<Haidar> what?
<Zuleykha> I think she likes you, too
<Haidar> oh *blushes deeply*
* Zuleykha caresses his cheek
* Haidar knew that, of course, but it's strange to hear it from her
<Haidar> do you think she's hurt?
<Zuleykha> I don't know...
* Zuleykha frowns, doesn't want her baby sister to be hurt
<Zuleykha> I hope she's not, but...
* Haidar reaches out and puts his hand on her waist
<Haidar> I don't want to hurt her
<Zuleykha> I know you don't...
<Zuleykha> just... I don't know
<Zuleykha> I think she worries about the future, too
* Haidar nods
<Haidar> I don't blame her for that
<Zuleykha> well, me neither
<Zuleykha> uhm...
<Zuleykha> if you...
<Haidar> you don't...you wouldn't mind?
* Zuleykha shakes her head
<Zuleykha> I'd like to keep my baby sister where I can take care of her
<Haidar> but... how could I support you both?
<Zuleykha> well... *tilts head*
<Zuleykha> that's another matter
<Haidar> I'm not even sure how I'll support us
<Haidar> I mean, there's enough money from the reward to let us live for a while
<Haidar> but I have no property
* Zuleykha looks thoughtful
<Zuleykha> well...
<Zuleykha> if we get home, and they really are gone... I doubt the bandits would've found father's secret stash... so there might be a dowry, at least *smiles a little*
* Haidar blinks
<Haidar> a secret stash?
* Zuleykha nods
<Haidar> I guess I could use that to buy a place in a town... try that whole city guard thing we talked about so long ago
<Haidar> it wouldn't be a luxurious life...
<Zuleykha> I'm alright with that
<Haidar> it would be more luxurious than this *waves his hand at the tent*
<Zuleykha> oooh, well then, that's good *smiles*
* Haidar nods
* Zuleykha inches a little closer to him
* Haidar slides his hand from her waist to her back
<Haidar> maybe I should wait until we know if your father lives
<Haidar> I can legitimately claim you, but Yasamin...
<Haidar> if he lives, he won't take well to being left out of the equation
<Zuleykha> yeah...
* Zuleykha strokes his cheek
* Haidar turns his head and kisses her wrist
* Zuleykha smiles
<Zuleykha> well, we'll wait until we get back, then
<Zuleykha> but... at least you know that I don't mind
<Zuleykha> if you want to marry her too...
* Haidar nods
<Haidar> I...
* Haidar sighs
<Haidar> I would like that a lot, actually...
<Haidar> I've grown attached to both of you
* Zuleykha nods too
<Zuleykha> I might be upset if it was someone else than Yas *smiles a little*
<Zuleykha> but, I mean, I love my sister, and...
<Zuleykha> I mean, if you didn't like her, I might have to doubt your intelligence
* Haidar smirks a bit
<Haidar> there's nothing wrong with my intelligence, thanks
<Haidar> but, I don't know if I should tell her now that I plan to ask her if we can't find your father, or if I should wait until then
<Zuleykha> I don't know either
* Zuleykha sighs a little
<Zuleykha> I'll leave that to you
<Haidar> you don't have any advice for me?
<Haidar> not even a little? *looks cute*
<Zuleykha> well...
* Zuleykha strokes his cheek
<Zuleykha> I mean, on one hand... she might be sad now if she doesn't know... and worry about the future, and...
<Zuleykha> and she does like you...
<Zuleykha> but if we find father, and...
<Haidar> do you think he would say no?
<Zuleykha> I don't know...
<Haidar> because if he is alive, I plan to ask him
<Zuleykha> I think he cares more about what wealth you have than I do
* Haidar nods
<Zuleykha> I mean, I think he'd approve of you as a person
<Zuleykha> and recognise that you saved her from the bandits and thus have at least some claim on her...
<Zuleykha> and... I hope that's enough, but I'm not a hundred percent certain of it
* Haidar nods
<Haidar> well, I can be pretty convincing
<Zuleykha> yeah
* Zuleykha smiles at him
<Zuleykha> well, maybe wait for the moment, but if she seems to get any sadder...?
<Haidar> that sounds like a good plan
* Haidar strokes her hair gently
<Haidar> then again, she's usually so quiet, I don't know that I could tell
<Zuleykha> ask her a straight-out question... even people who've never met her before can tell when she's lying *winks*
<Haidar> heh, true
* Zuleykha shifts a little again and leans over to kiss him
* Haidar kisses back
<Haidar> mmm
<Haidar> you taste good
* Zuleykha smiles
<Zuleykha> so do you
* Zuleykha kisses again
* Haidar kisses back again, sucking on her bottom lip
<Zuleykha> mmm
<Haidar> you're getting better at the kissing thing
<Zuleykha> I have a good teacher
* Haidar smirks a little more
<Haidar> you have a selfish one
<Zuleykha> oh yeah?
* Zuleykha smiles, raising an eyebrow
<Haidar> mmhm
<Haidar> because if you're going to kiss me for the rest of our lives, I want you to be good at it *winks*
* Zuleykha giggles and kisses him again
* Haidar kisses back
<Zuleykha> well, I want to be good too, so... it all works out
<Haidar> yeah
* Haidar strokes her hair again
<Haidar> mmm, I can't wait to figure out where all your little ticklish spots are, and what the sweet skin behind your knees tastes like...
* Zuleykha blushes a little
<Haidar> I think it's going to be a lot of fun, exploring each other a little more thoroughly
* Zuleykha runs her hand down his arm lightly
<Haidar> when the time comes
<Zuleykha> me too
<Zuleykha> I mean... I think so too
* Zuleykha smiles at him
* Haidar smiles back
