"...I thought it'd be different."

The only sign that Jade had heard him at all was the fractional pause in the scritching of pen on paper. Peony grinned, spreading out on the couch in the other man's office.

Fine, fine. He didn't really need a response. In its own way, the silence was comforting. The unexpected benefits of having a badly-disguised alien for a best friend...

But then Jade said very dryly, "I thought something similar. Of course, I could never have <>imagined the pile of debris, or the livestock," and Peony laughed, in spite of himself and everything else.
