Noon. Perfect time to wander through the preserve on the outskirts of the area, not too dark. Meaning she wouldn't have to worry.

A small smile crossed over Mai's lips, taking to a tree and taking a higher route through it. Curiousity was quite evident to her, curious to see if there was anyone else about. Anyone worth her time anyway.

As if.

"Quiet." She muttered under her breath, percariously perched on a rather wobbly branch though she didn't seem to take much notice of it if at all. Carefully she'd allow her gaze to wander, making sure she was not being followed. Nothing.

At least there was nothing around yet, it probably wouldn't stay that way for long. Silence and peace never did.

((Edited because mun's an idiot and can't think at one in the morning.))

"You should visit one sometime... It is quite interesting if just that." If that was as far as he'd go then she'd take the initiative. Which, then, included moving a bit to nuzzle at his neck, hard, sure, but she'd try anyway.

"I should... I've been so cooped up in cities lately."

"Certainly provides an interesting backdrop for some battles, but it.. blares." Everything grabbing at your attention, neon signs, noisy babble and car horns, afloat in a sea of distractions.. is she nuzzling at his neck? She is NUZZLING AT HIS NECK!

Rather a stiff neck, lots of corded muscle and clearly visible veins, but it's fairly obvious that he's enjoying it a great deal. "Mmmhrmm.."

He got a grip on himself. "You are welcome to shelter under my roof, if you wish it. I can always return to the cave I used before."

Who knew he was so generous?

"I know, though I got used to it." Oh well at the stiff neck thing, still was rather interesting in some weird odd way.

"Oh? Are you sure it won't put you out of your way?"

It's softening a little as he gets used to the idea, though we are still speaking of a very tough neck. And thumb is now gently brushing over her hip! Encouragement does things like that.

"I shall be just fine; I can always make another. Your assistance would be welcome upon finishing this one, of course.."

The thumb, she did not expect but she calmed down into it anyway. "If you're sure. I'd be glad to help, could use it."

((Short.as.hell.))

((Indeed it is!))

"Excellent. Do you know the making of rice paper?" His thumb gradually stills, as he looks down at her face with those burning red eyes.

Though for some reason they didn't phase her, at all. "Hm? Well, it's been awhile..."

Well, that's a good thing! "I'm sure you will pick it up again." Off they go to make rice paper for screens for awhile!

Whee!

Some unspecified time later..

"That should do for now. Let's have some rice balls."

Who needst tell it right when you can be VAGUE?

Taking her back to the fair-sized dwelling, he unwraps some rice balls stuffed with umeboshi and katsuobushi. "Usually I work with more common ingredients, but then I rarely have company."

Yay vague.

"Mm? Well, I suppose I should feel some honor there then, right?" Seemed simple enough in her book, seemed being the keyword.

He notices.. kinda. "When should you not feel honor, Mai? It is one of the core virtues of our way of life. Be it sitting down to eat, in the midst of battle, or even fast asleep.. one should always feel honor."

Now if only he could actually banter!

"I suppose so. Though... nevermind, my brain just took it a different way." No really, it did.

"Oh? How did you take it, then?" Curious!

And don't think about that phrasing too much; Akuma sure didn't!

"I've found different versions of honor. In the one I was thinking it was more like something special. Not the everyday things. That I considered more as pride." And Mai made no sense, yay.

"Ah." Once more, Akuma sorta gets it! "To be honored, instead of simply having honor. At this point, would you settle for simply being onigiri'd?" He offers a small plate of rice balls to her.

"I would." And she'd take one, just nibbling on it for the moment, her mind elsewhere.

Sadly, Akuma is no nibbler; he's worked up a healthy appetite, and is taking rather large bites.

Luckily, he's always been a believer in elegance no matter the activity, and does not have the appalling and horrific table manners one might rightly expect from someone who has been a hermit for thirty years!

She's rather glad about that fact, probably would've backed away very quickly if it had been horrendous. Good job on Akuma's part.

Yay for attention to life detail!

And tasty riceballs; after all, if you live alone, better learn how to cook well!

"This is good." She grinned a bit at him, continuing to lightly nibble on it. Still good, though.
