[God, it's so eeeeaaaarly. Why is she doing this again? Oh, yeah. Food. Speaking of which it smells amazing, but first things first. ]

There's coffee here, right? Someone tell me there's coffee.

There was some coffee- but something tells me that you're not in the mood for has-beens. [And who should come by with a mug of steaming hot coffee, holding said mug with one hand with his other tucked into a pocket.]

[You've got to be kidding. Of all the luck. Faye sucks on her bottom lip and gives Jade a sidelong look. At the moment, she wouldn't be too proud just to knock him over and take the coffee if she thought she could get away with it. But that won't work. She quickly drops the look and forces a sweet smile on her face.]

I wouldn't mind at all, if there was a gentleman willing to share.

A gentleman, you say? Let me think- [And Jade takes a sip out of the coffee, mmm, such good stuff] No, I don't think I've seen any gentlemen around.

Yeah. So I noticed. [She gives an indignant toss of her hair as she pours herself a sad glass of cold, healthy, fruit juice and eyes it speculatively. It's so not the same.] Well, not that it matters. I hear it stains your teeth anyway.

Such a pity, Miss Faye. I was about to tell you that a new batch of coffee was being brewed as we speak- but I suppose that will be of little use now that you've sworn it off in interest of your health. [Another sip; this really does taste good.]

[The glass of juice makes it halfway to her lips, and there it stops. Faye feels her eye twitch as Jade's words sink in. He knew?! Why that lousy, son of a...]

...what?

Having yet another change of heart? My my, you sure are very flexible with your beliefs.

[that icon XD | Faye makes a strangled sound.]

I - [She stops, shuts her mouth, and tries again.]

You decided I gave up coffee for my health! All I said was that it stains your teeth. [The aroma of the freshly brewed batch catches her nose, and she looks around eagerly for the new pot.]

And no, I don't care if it does. That's what dentists are for.

[Hilarious, isn't it? Anyway, Jade slowly drinks his coffee as if giving fair warning that he could use some more coffee too.]

So I've heard, but you looked as if you were going to combust on the spot just now! I may have heard from some other source that coffee also raises your blood pressure and I would have felt so terribly guilty if you had died of an aneurysm before your day's even begun; it's really not a way to begin one's day.

If I die before this morning is out, it'll be your fault, and I couldn't possibly be content with you only feeling guilty about it. [Faye casually sets her juice glass down and begins to edge around Jade in an effort to make sure she reaches the coffee before him.]

I'll make sure to haunt you~

[Come on now Faye, there's plenty of coffee and he's only messing around with you!]

You'd be doing me a favor; while I don't believe in ghosts I had never discovered a way to prove that they don't exist.

[cranky and caffeine deprived = does not trust you right now, Jade Curtiss]

Yeah, that's me. Helpful to the very end. [Her words are followed by a short pause.] Why so interested in ghosts?

Idle curiosity. If someone's wiling to volunteer, why not take notes?

Oh, I see. You're an opportunist, huh? [And speaking of opportunity, the god of caffeine decided to answer Faye's prayers. A new carafe of hot coffee is placed on the table. Faye latches onto it like a lifeline, then realizes she needs a mug.]

[Jade shrugs; incidentally, he's standing rather close to the mugs now.] Of course. Any soldier that expects to survive any battle beyond the first learns to exploit every chance given to them. [Then Jade motions to the mugs.] By the way, I do think that you'll need one of these in short order.

[Oh. There there they are. That's inconvenient. Faye debates whether she wants to reach for one or not.] Maybe all I need is a straw~

[A wry look crosses her face.] And you know, somehow I doubt exploitation is the exclusive domain of the military, Colonel.

Perhaps you do. And of course not, seeing that the royals beat us to that.

[Unfortunately, she doesn't have a straw either. She reaches for a mug and gives Jade a curious look as she does so.] The royals?

Yes, the royals. Rulers and leaders, if you would.

I assumed. So what'd they do to get under your skin?

[Deciding she better head off any smart ass comment at the pass, she adds- ]...Before you say "exploited", we've already covered that much.

I'm hurt that you'd think I would go for such an overused word. In any case, I was merely making a statement of fact; royals always come before armies, as one might say.

[Coffee poured and carafe set down, Faye places her free hand to her chest in a sign of false repentance.]

Well, that might be. Until the armies get tired of the status quo. There is always that.

I'm afraid rebellion's out of question for a mere colonel and an outstanding citizen such as myself. Besides, I'm far too old to be leading coups and such a rebellion would leave a permanent stain on my record, which would also mean that I would be out of a job.

Oh, psh. A little soap and some elbow grease and that spot would come right out~ Or, you know, you could always choose a different career path.
