*He can't . . . won't name the impetus, but Draco feels compelled to begin this work here, where Einar fell. He can't be caught so clear in his function as making some 'grande geste' on the spot, but he closes his eyes for several moments, and allows himself to be immolated by the memories, coming back to himself with suspiciously damp eyes.*
*he shakes loose the cobwebs of recollection which have entangled him, and returns to the present.* "That's a job for later - if we do well enough with our initial task. First off, I think we'll need to restore the Town House, then get on with the 'honeymoon' - and our intel gathering. Anywhere in Rome you've always wanted to go, before we get down to business?"
"Well, this being Italy, we can basically go one of two ways. Either I can be the over-protective new husband, in which case we go everywhere together. Or else you can be the woman - rethinking her recent decision to get married, if you feel excessive togetherness might be too much."
*He shakes his head with suppressed impatience.* "No, it's really your choice. As a 'looking to be single' woman you'd get hit on - a lot, but it might provide more opportunities for intel gathering. As a couple we would, hopefully, have a better chance of moving around key topics without arousing suspicion. As I said, the ball's in your court."
"Well it is whatever you would see fits best." She was slightly confused as to why she was getting so much say in this mission. "I would be fine with both, but it is whatever you want to get out of this tour."
*Draco blows his cheeks out, and wipes a hand across his brow.* "Kalia, no field operative can function long-term against their essential nature, and that's dealing with trained and experienced individuals, which we haven't had time or opportunity to become. If you're not comfortable with what I'm asking of you, odds are it'll show in practically every line of your body language - as your frequent displeasure does. So, it has to be your decision as to what you can and can't take in your current stride. You are the only judge of that. With time, and luck, your repertoire will expand, but for now, since we're potentially putting our lives in each other's hands, it's best not to run before we learn to crawl, eh?"
