Hannah was down for her nap. Being walked around town was a pretty eventful day for a baby, and she was sleeping soundly.

"She ate her soup," Ankah told him as he warmed up the stove. "I can't say she got a lot of rest."

"I'm not surprised," Kyrad replied. He looked out the window, wondering how long it would take Raven to arrive with their dinner. He'd given her enough money to buy food for a month, so he didn't think she'd be busy haggling over prices.

Raven knocked on the door as she entered. "I got some food for you." Raven announced. She sounded a little halfhearted though. Finch was on her mind.

"Excellent," Kyrad said, looking over the various items. He pulled out a knife and got to work on the fish. "Any problems? With the food or otherwise?"

"Well..." Raven frowned. "Finch was going on about finding something in life. Something that I couldn't help find for him." Raven shook her head a little.

"He was being an ass. That's what he was doing."

"Did he say you couldn't help him find it?" Kyrad asked, setting the first fish on a hot pan. A gentle sizzle filled the air. "Or that you couldn't find it for him?"

Kyrad understood the difference well. It had been hard for him to stop trying to do things for Ramona and instead help her achieve them herself. He still wasn't particularly good at it.

"Let me explain," he added, slicing into another fish. "Did he tell you to leave him alone so he could do it himself? Or did he just get frustrated with you when you offered help?"

"He said I wouldn't understand. It's something he HAS to do I suppose." Raven crossed her arms over her chest. "I CAN understand though. I know what it's like to have no purpose. I...I just make small goals."

"There's a difference between finding a purpose and finding purpose," Kyrad replied. "Your goals are small, and therefore readily achievable. There's nothing wrong with that, but that isn't what Finch is looking for. He wants his life to have a grander meaning. That's not something you casually discover and pursue."

He put the second fish on the stove and pointed to his hair. "I'm sure you realize that this isn't natural," he said. "It was the result of a magical attack on me a long time ago. When I first realized I was different, I spent all my time and energy trying to understand it. But it took a rather traumatic event for me to discover my purpose. I made it my goal in life to become so powerful that nothing could ever threaten me like that, or like this," he indicated his hair once more, "again."

"Not exactly a noble goal," Kyrad continued. "But it drove me. Every action I took was in pursuit of power or knowledge of power. And it took another series of rather traumatic events to shift my focus away from that. But when we met, I didn't tell you about my traumatic past or the horrible things that happened to me. My life was defined by my purpose, and still is." He cast a sideways glance at Ramona's room. "Maybe Finch is just looking for a way to define his life by something other than a series of unfortunate events."

Raven laid a hand on her hip. "I hope you're not referring to me as an unfortunate event." She tried to joke, but it sounded hollow.

There was a sound from Ramona's room. Ramona had the blanket draped over her like a makeshift cape and hood. "I smell fish." she pointed out.

"Rest," Kyrad said to Ramona. "I'll bring your food in when its ready."

He turned back to Raven and started slicing up veggies. "He's not wrong about one thing though. You'll never understand what he's trying to do if he refuses to explain it to you."

"So should I press it?" Raven wondered out loud. She looked over as Ramona walked over to Kyrad and pressed her forehead to the side of his arm.

"I missed you." She mumbled. Ramona seemed to sniff and she smiled. "Do we have lemons? It'd go good with the fish. Lemon and maybe dill..."

Raven watched as Ramona went back to her room. She laid a hand on her hip. "She's...She's really odd. Kyrad...Is it okay if I ask you something personal? What keeps you and Ramona going still?"

"Couldn't tell you," Kyrad replied. "It just works." He reached into the spice rack and pulled out dill and pepper. "I can tell you it worked a lot better after she stopped trying to force everything. She used to have this obsession with everything being perfect and took every hiccup as a personal insult. Life is messy. Love is messier."

He reached into the icebox and pulled out a single lemon, which he began to carve with a knife.

Raven smiled a little as Kyrad described what he and Ramona were like as he was adding in Ramona's suggestions to the dish. She looked at the skillet and then back at Kyrad. "You know," Raven's cheeks flushed a little. "I don't think even Ramona can comprehend how much you care for her and for Hannah."

She paused and looked at Kyrad's face. "Since when are you trying to grow a beard?"

"Growing a beard requires no effort on my part," Kyrad replied, flipping over the fish and putting the veggies in a pot.. "Shaving was the activity I had to engage in. And lately I've had less and less time to do that."

"Raven?" Ramona called from the bedroom. Raven smiled a little and she walked into the bedroom. Soon, she came out with what looked like a set of knitted gloves. "Ramona said she made these for FInch, Ren and myself. I'm sorry Kyrad, I don't quite think she rested today."

Raven glanced back at the bedroom. "Is there a spell you can use?"

"Of course," Kyrad replied. "But if she doesn't want to rest, she can deal with the consequences." He raised his voice slightly. "If she thinks a day in there is boring, imagine if she's sick for a whole week."
