09:43 pm - St. Jude's Hospital
Ariadne makes her way down the hospital hall, carrying a paper cup containing a pair of capsules.

Hearing an unfamiliar voice inside Room 172, she pauses in the doorway, regarding her patient and his visitor.

"Hi," she says with a smile. "Sorry to interrupt, but it's time for his medicine."

Mortal eyes see a woman in her twenties with a Mediterranean complexion and warm brown eyes, her black hair worn in a knot at the crown of her head. She's wearing a crisp white uniform and running shoes, a stethescope slung around her shoulders.

Fae eyes see a vivacious satyr, ivory-colored horns poking up through her raven-black hair. Her goat legs are covered with a pelt of silky black waves from her waist to her dainty black hooves. She's wearing a short dress of Chinese brocade, cut to enhance her curves, but leaving her legs free for easy movement.

Aaron looks up from where he's sitting by the bed. He looks at her, then smiles. "No problem. He's not up to much besides chatting right now," he says with a wink.

Aidan makes a face. "I'd like to see how much you're up to after you get a bullet taken out of you," he retorts. He shifts a little so that he can reach the half-full glass of water on the table near the bed, and doesn't quite suppress a wince. Okay, that was not a good way to move...

A flash of dismay shows on Aaron's face, which he tries to cover up. Realizing Aidan was reaching for the water, Aaron quietly hands the water to Aidan.

Ariadne doesn't miss the wince, nor the look of dismay that crosses Aaron's face. He seems to really care about that sidhe, she thinks. Wonder if he knows what Aidan really looks like?

She passes Aidan the cup with the meds in it. "Here; these should help."

Aaron watches as Aidan takes the cup. As nothing else bad happens he starts to relax, and his attention diverts from Aidan to the nurse. He definaly seems interested in her, and if she looks his way he'll give her another smile.

Accepting the water from Aaron with murmured thanks, Aidan takes the pills and washes them down with a swallow of water. "So," he says, giving the pretty satyr a smile, "How about dinner?"

She pauses in the act of taking his pulse and respiration. "The aide should be bringing something around six," she says automatically. "Didn't they bring you a menu this morning?"

She doesn't miss the smile from Aaron, and returns it with one of her own. Cute. Actually, both of them are definitely cute. Of course, with my luck, they're probably a couple, and not interested in women.

Aidan chuckles, giving her a wink. "Actually, I meant after I'm out of here." A grin. "Call it a thank you."

Ariadne looks over at Aaron. Is he serious? that look seems to say.

She opens her juice and and answers, "I guess I've always had a desire to heal people." And not just in this lifetime, either. "Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to go into the medical field." She unwraps her sandwich and takes a bite before continuing. "I got my degree at Niagara University, up near Niagara Falls, got my R.N., and here I am."

Aaron nods. "I think I can understand that. Though it seems more often than not I've been the one who's needed help, rather than the other way around."

"Oh?" She stops nibbling on the sandwich and looks curiously at him. Something about him arouses her nurturing instincts, and she asks, "How so...if you don't mind my asking?"

Aaron sighs. "Even the time I was a hero, I still had to be rescued. And if Julian and Gordon hadn't shown up..." He doesn't quite shudder but does tense up visibly.

Wordlessly, Ariadne reaches over to put a hand on his, focusing sustaining strength through that touch. "It's all right," she says softly. "You're safe here."

Something happened to him, that's obvious. But what? Maybe it's better not to ask.... Out loud, she says, "I'm sorry; I didn't mean to bring up any bad memories."

Aaron nods. "I know. It was years ago now. It's not really the thing to talk about when you've just met someone." He gives her a wry grin. "I should stick with safe topics, like polyamoury and beliving in the Fair Folk."

She quirks an eyebrow at that. Well, and well, as Iason would say. She focuses her "other" vision as her mentor has taught her, and gives Aaron a smile. "Or bisexuality?" she quips.

Aaron grins. "That too."

While Aaron is not fae, when Ariadne looks, it is evident that Aaron does have fae blood in him - sidhe at the very least.

He asks softly, "So you wouldn't mind going out with a couple guys who are already involved with each other?"

"Oh...that's interesting..." Her eyes get wider, though she doesn't seem shocked or offended; more like...intrigued?

"This is just like that scene in Independence Day," she says with a laugh. "You know, where Vivica Fox tells Mary McDonnell she's a dancer, and McDonnell is like, 'Ballet?' and Fox says, 'Exotic'?" She starts giggling. "Of course, there aren't any aliens, but...."

Aaron chuckles. "If there are any aliens, they're like the ones in Men in Black - they look like normal humans." He gives her a wink.

"I'm actually pretty new to my... profession. Indirectly, it's why I met Aidan - both with me moving here and being up and the Greek diner near here in the wee hours of the morning." He pulls out his wallet and hands her two cards. "Those'll get you in for free where I work." He grins. "You could always take Aidan when he's feeling better. I actually gave him his own pass, but in case he's managed to loose it, you have a spare."

Aaron chuckles. "If there are any aliens, they're like the ones in Men in Black - they look like normal humans." He gives her a wink.
She chuckles. "Except they don't have to worry about immigration laws - in most cases, they live here already."

She accepts the cards with a grin, tucking them into the chest pocket of her uniform. "Thanks." Then she looks curious. "Are there ladies there, too, or is where you work strictly a guys-only club?"

Aaron swallows what he's chewing on before he replies. "Where I work is on the second floor, and the ladies have thier own stage downstairs. Their club has a separate name and a separate entrance, but you can get from club to the other by taking the stairs back by the public restrooms." He chuckles. "We originally only a ladies room upstairs and a sign pointing downstairs to the men's room. But apparently some of the fellows from the club downstairs got a bit uncomfortable with a few of the guys who were visiting from upstairs. So they added a men's room upstairs too."

Ariadne nods at that. "I'll have to check it out sometime soon," she says with a wink.

She runs her finger up and down the half-empty bottle of juice. "So, we've talked about work - on to other things." A pause. "So, where are you from?"

"Virginia originally. I grew up in the 'burbs. Julian - who I mentioned before - is my older brother... Well, technically he's my half-brother, but I never thought of him that way. And I've got a younger sister, who's still stuck at home with my parents." Aaron gives her a curious look. "You said you went to school near Niagara Falls. Are you from around there?"

She nods. "Originally, I'm from Lewiston, New York - that's not far from Niagara Falls. I've got two sisters - one's down near Raleigh now, working for UNC Chapel Hill, and the other one's going to school at Swarthmore University, in Philadelphia." She smiles, reminiscing. "My mom was a biology teacher at Lewiston-Porter Senior High, so I guess I absorbed a lot from her."

Aaron nods. "Sounds nice." Deciding he doesn't want to tell her about his disfunctional family before they even go out once, Aaron decides to change topics. "I guess your job keeps you pretty busy. Or do you have time for a hobby or other fun things?"
