"Morning pillow" she replied
"Is that what I am?"
"What you are is soft, sweet and in my bed, so let's just lay here for today"

"Today's Wednesday right, so I have work tomorrow and Friday, but I can catch up with you Friday night or over the weekend, when would suit you best?" Cid said
"I'll come over Friday night then go from there," Gwen said cheekily

Cid got out of bed and pulled on his pants from the night before and walked bare-chested into Gwen's kitchen and began to make breakfast. He boiled the kettle to make Coffee, he found some bacon and eggs in the fridge and after finding a frying pan began to cook them. Gwen came out of the bedroom wearing a fluffy black robe a few sizes too big for her.Bookmark here

"I can help you with the cooking if you want" Gwen offered
"No, I've got this covered you can just sit down and relax," Cid saidBookmark here

Cid served up breakfast on the table and He and Gwen ate together and watched the TV news from the kitchen table. They chatted while they ate about many things including Books, TV and Music but eventually they finished eating and Cid had to get going.Bookmark here

"Hey Pat, how was the game?" Cid asked
"Pretty good, how was your date?" Pat replied
 "Pretty damn great, I've got another date lined up for Friday and might be able to extend that to a weekend engagement"
"Congrats man, can you give me details"
"Just the cliff notes, I picked her up, we went for dinner, we chatted, we ran into her ex, dealt with that, Ended up back at her place where I ended up staying the night"
"Oh I heard about her ex from Serah, apparently he was a total asshole and Serah's glad they're no longer together, but would have preferred it if Gwen had done the dumping"

"On that, we can agree," Cid said
