She removed her clothes slowly, a smile on her face. She shouldn’t be enjoying it this much. “So, I hear that you make a wicked soup.”

His nose began to bleed. Good thing he was a masochist.

Unnecessarily Long and Tiresome Authoress’ Notes:
Surely I’m not the only one who’s noticed that the otherwise unflappable Xelloss gets quite flustered around Filia.
