Tara waited for Psylocke to sit, then slowly followed suit. Her every move, designed to put the other woman at ease. Years of experience brought to bear. Psylocke sat there quietly without eating. Tara let her sit there for a bit, then decided to break the ice once more, time to regain the trust, "Please eat you still need your nutrition and you do have a meeting with the emperor soon." "I've lost my appetite." The response was flat. "I am sorry." Tara reiterated, trying to emphasize her sincerity to Psylocke. But she simply remained sitting there, quiet. Tara let her sit there, apparently the other woman's issues ran deep. The Emperor would be sure to exploit them. Psylocke was right about him using her. Indeed, Tara thought to herself, I see a very depressed person in front of me whom I have just upset and was more likely than not on the verge of tears. An excellent fighter she now has a lot to think about before visiting the Emperor. Tara remained quiet and continued eating. Respecting Psylockes silence. No need to push the issue, the woman would come out of it on her own. Psylocke watched her as she continued to eat, glancing once or twice at Topaz Tara was savoring the each bite, she noticed Psylocke watching her, "I love strawberries the texture the taste..such a simple pleasure in life." "I prefer blueberries myself." She muttered. "mmmm yes." Tara considered the berry, "An even simpler taste. Not as sweet." "I like the occasional sour ones." "Ahh yes Pineapple for that is mine." Tara replied happily, "has a most exquisite sourness, yet still sweet in the end." She paused, then decided to throw in an allusion, although she doubted Psylocke would pick up on it, given her current state of mind. Then again it was hard to say, "A beautiful dichotomy really." Psylocke nodded, "Even pleasing to the touch." "Yes it can be." Tara replied, a little more serious, it was amazing how much you could learn about a person, even thorough a simple conversation about fruit. Tara rose and went to a cupboard bringing back a plate of chocolate chip cookies. "Now here we go..." She nodded to the plate, "this is the true nectar of the Galaxy." Tara's eyes twinkled a bit. Psylocke chuckled slightly. "The chocolate is from a small corner of the rim..I understand they have a special recipe it can be quite addictive" Tara chuckled as she explained the origins of the chocolate. One of her family's perks, when you trade as much as the Alderson's did, one tended to find the small treasures upon occasion. Psylocke nodded solemnly, staring transfixed at the cookies. "I haven't had chocolate in a long while." "Well then high time to break the fast" Psylocke chuckled slightly and shook her head.
