Rogue spent all day cleaning an already clean apartment. It's a pretty standard apartment with standard apartment furniture. She's added little things like blankets, prints of famous paintings like Klimts The Kiss and a close up of the hands in Michelangelo's The creation of Man.

She answers the door wearing a teal top, low rise jeans, striped toe socks and no gloves. She pulls the door open, hands going up immediately so he can see that she doesn't have the gloves on. "I'm still cookin'. Didn't want to get my gloves dirty. You aren't vegan, right?"

And she takes a step back away from the door giving him plenty of room to come inside and not get too close to her.

"Dinner's just about finished. You want some wine or a soda or iced tea?"

Oz is just in his normal corduroy pants and a green tee with a dancing pickle on it. He has on is coat too cause it's been cold outside and in one hand he holds one single wild flower. Nothing special. Just a single, nondescript flower.

"Nope, just a no meat kind of guy." He entered the apartment and held out the flower, careful to let her be the one to take it so that she could control not touching him.

And just like that her nerves disappear to be replaced with a giddiness that she's only felt a couple of times in her life. She reaches out and takes the flower, just the tips of her fingers. She's lived with her power long enough that she's not only aware of how much she's covered up but how much other people are as well so when she steps forward to hug him, it's not entirely impulsive but it is fairly confident.

Her arms go very briefly around his shoulders, her face turned away from him so that her cheek brushes against his coat and not his face. Of course he's getting a face full of her ponytail but that can't be helped.

"Thank you," she says quietly against his shoulder before releasing him and stepping back.

The hug is a welcome surprise, but he's careful about it as well. His arms lightly going around her too, touching only clothing and just briefly before she steps back again. "Good smells, whatever it is." He might be talking about the food cooking. And he might be talking about her. Okay, maybe he's talking about both.

The fact that he's careful but doesn't freak out makes her feel better about just having him here. "Eggplant souffle, sweet potato casserole and some zucchini and squash." She beckons him on into the house, stepping toward the kitchen. "Take your coat off if you want. Can I get you something to drink?"
Daniel 'Oz' Osbourne: pic#102320149taciturnbeast on January 29th, 2011 01:50 am (UTC)
"Oh tea. Tea is good." Oz isn't the alcohol type, or anything that slows your inhibitions type. He follows her into the house, takes off his coat and rests it over the back of a chair.

She makes him a glass of iced tea, leaving it on the bar attached to the island. She pops open the oven, looking into it and then grabs a couple of plates out of the cabinet. The table is small, just off the kitchen, so she really doesn't even step out of sight while she's setting it.

"So outside of meditating and approaching strange girls in coffee shops, what do ya do here?"
Daniel 'Oz' Osbourne: pic#102320149taciturnbeast on January 30th, 2011 08:17 pm (UTC)
"Nothing yet. I try not to commit too much to doing anything. I'm a dabbler. I dabble in music." He said, walking with her to the kitchen. "Guitar, which I'm... mediocre with."
Anne Marie "Rogue": Minxtake_yourbreath on January 31st, 2011 05:42 pm (UTC)
"Sorta the nice thing about here. You don't really gotta commit to doing anything." She adds flatware to the table along with a couple of taper candles she lights then puts some hot pads on the table. "The guitar is cool though. I don't think I've ever known anybody who played."

The oven comes open again and she gets a big casserole dish out to carry to the table.
Daniel 'Oz' Osbournetaciturnbeast on February 1st, 2011 05:10 pm (UTC)
He leans back against the counter, watching her. "Now you know me. Although I don't always think I actually play. I dabble, I might even tinker everynow and then."
Anne Marie "Rogue": Happy Girltake_yourbreath on February 1st, 2011 06:56 pm (UTC)
Rogue can't help blushing a little at the attention. She sets the dish on the table and moves to get another one out of the warming oven. "That's more than I do so it counts."

A third dish goes to the table and she glances at the table then back at him. "I think dinner's all ready."

She takes her elbow length gloves out of her pocket and starts to put them on.
Daniel 'Oz' Osbournetaciturnbeast on February 7th, 2011 10:30 pm (UTC)
Oz finds a seat at the table and looks to her, nodding at the gloves. "I won't touch."
Anne Marie "Rogue": A world without touchtake_yourbreath on February 8th, 2011 05:15 am (UTC)
Rogue hesitates, watching him carefully before nodding. She puts the gloves to the side, leaving her hands bare for the moment.

"it really doesn't scare you, does it?" Of course by it she means 'I' but it's easier to distance herself by saying it.
Daniel 'Oz' Osbourne: pic#102320149taciturnbeast on February 9th, 2011 08:34 pm (UTC)
"It really doesn't." Oz answered honestly. He knew how it was to have something that could potentially be dangerous and hurtful to others... even deadly. And he knew how it could eat at a person from the inside out.

"I'd pinky swear but... air pinky swear good enough?" And he holds up his hand, all fingers curled in but the pinky which is stretched out.
Anne Marie "Rogue": Happy Girltake_yourbreath on February 9th, 2011 10:11 pm (UTC)
Rogue laughed, the smile fixing on her face after the laugh has faded. She puts her elbow on the table and mimics his pose, her pinky an inch or so from his.

"Air pinky swear is perfect."
Daniel 'Oz' Osbournetaciturnbeast on February 9th, 2011 11:19 pm (UTC)
He curled his pinky, careful not to touch hers and just barely shook his hand. "And I take air pink swears pretty seriously, you should know."
Anne Marie "Rogue": big smiletake_yourbreath on February 10th, 2011 12:26 am (UTC)
She curls hers and shakes as well, the smile still spread over her face. "Well they ought to be taken seriously. It's an act of loyalty and trust."
Daniel 'Oz' Osbourne: pic#102320145taciturnbeast on February 10th, 2011 02:32 am (UTC)
"An ancient ritual of loyalty and trust at this point." Oz almost grinned and looked over the food. "You really can cook. It smells... almost as good as you do."
Anne Marie "Rogue": lip bitetake_yourbreath on February 10th, 2011 03:24 am (UTC)
The compliments make her blush bright red, ducking her head so that her hair falls over her face. Her grin makes her face hurt at this point and it takes her a moment to get under control. She finally looks up at him, still red and grinning.

"Help yourself. It's sweet potato souffle and zucchini, squash and mushrooms."
Daniel 'Oz' Osbourne: pic#102320127taciturnbeast on February 10th, 2011 08:31 pm (UTC)
What she doesn't know is that he can actually smell her and she does actually smell good. He starts to fill his plate with the food. "Home-cooked meal. This never happens. There's excitement, possibly a bit of anxiety."
Anne Marie "Rogue": lip bitetake_yourbreath on February 11th, 2011 05:03 am (UTC)
Definitely not something she'd guess. Although Logan has the same sense of smell and she doesn't realize that either.

"Anxiety? I promise I ain't poisonin' you. It's all good food."

Now she's a little anxious looking because of the anxiety.
Daniel 'Oz' Osbourne: pic#102320127taciturnbeast on February 11th, 2011 10:30 pm (UTC)
"Oh no anxiety about the food itself. It's about whether I'll take the time to appreciate it or not." Oz's way of thinking, not like anyone else's way of thinking.
Anne Marie "Rogue": contemplativetake_yourbreath on February 12th, 2011 01:23 am (UTC)
Rogue furrows her brow, watching him with a half smile. "Well I'm not gonna kick you out after an hour, Sugar. You can take as much time as you want."
Daniel 'Oz' Osbournetaciturnbeast on February 12th, 2011 01:26 am (UTC)
"Yeah but it might be so good that I can't not scarf it down." Oz reasoned. "It's an exercise in control, really. In savoring each bite."
Anne Marie "Rogue": Minxtake_yourbreath on February 12th, 2011 01:59 am (UTC)
He just never failed to make her grin. "Just wait 'til we get to the peach cobbler."
Daniel 'Oz' Osbourne: pic#102320094taciturnbeast on February 12th, 2011 02:21 am (UTC)
He's silent for several heartbeats before finally arching one brow as he picks up his fork. "Has anyone proposed to you lately cause I might be considering it."
