" Your creepy ex tried to assault me and insulted your honor while you were passed out last night."
" Ah, did he really? Some things never change, huh."
" You have horrible taste."
" I do, don't I."
" Want the rest of my breakfast? I'm not hungry."
Nova gave him a stern look.
" You need to eat when you wake up," he said. " You barely ate anything yesterday, anyway."
" Food's not that important, I just need enough to function properly," William said dismissively.
" Stupid attitude," Nova sniped. " Eat your damn breakfast."
" Don't be so mean. I thought you were getting better about being mean."
Nova flicked his ear.
" Nothing can change me," he said drily. " I'll be mean for the rest of my life."
" Ah, but aren't you just mad because you're concerned?" William said. " I've got you figured out! You put up a tough front, but you're really soft inside."
