Who: Sara and Sofia
Where: At home, then the restaurant
When: A night or two after the BBQ

Sara stood in front of the mirror, performing a final check. She and Sofia were going out to the Thai place she wanted to go, and although it wasn't fancy, she'd tried to make an effort for her. She'd put on a simple black dress and a pair of strappy heels that showed off her legs, done her hair and applied a little make up.

When she was ready she went in search of Sofia. "You ready?" she asked her, smiling.

She laughed quietly and smiled broadly over at her. "A charmer, maybe, but I'm also telling you nothing but the truth there, baby." And she was. Sara always was like a magnet to her - no matter how she looked, or acted, Sofia was attracted to her.

She smiled and nodded. "I do. I'd like to wear things like this more often. But, I've never found it easy to fully switch off the work Sofia mode. I was very influenced by my mother with that whilst growing up. Even when I don't realise I'm doing it, I am. I go for button up shirts and smart trousers when I'm on my day off, just out of habit, sometimes. But when I wear things like this? It's like... escaping, that pressure, and that 'role'. I can embrace more of me." She blushed and shook her head at herself, resting her face in her hands as she let out a little laugh. "I sound like such a cliche, rattling on like that."

Sara shook her head. "No, you don't," she assured Sofia. "I can't imagine the sort of pressure you must feel sometimes, always trying to live up to people's expectations and present yourself the way they want you to. You do a great job, though, of handling it all. I'd like to see you more relaxed, though. You'll kill yourself if you don't learn to switch Captain Curtis off, and that would kill me, too. Then Aiden would end up living with apes... or worse still, with Greg," she told her playfully. They both knew that Greg was fun, and smart, and nice, but terrible when it came to doing anything even remotely domestic.

She laughed quietly at that and playfully shuddered.

"Well, we can't inflict that on our poor little boy." She replied. She let out a breath though, and licked her lips as she nodded her head.

"I'm trying to get used to turning it off. It's hard though, when it's the habit of a lifetime. I was brought up to be good at doing it."

"Maybe we should try to find ourselves a little holiday place," she suggested. "Out in the woods, really remote... they'll be pretty cheap there, and we can escape for weekends whenever we want to... No cell phone reception. Wouldn't that be amazing?" she asked.

"It would," She smiled widely. "But, wouldn't you go a little crazy not being able to have Dad update us so much on what Aid's up to?" Sofia would miss him, but manage better than Sara.
5th-Feb-2009 08:44 pm (UTC)
Sara's jaw dropped. "I wouldn't leave him!" she told Sofia. "I'd take him with us!"
5th-Feb-2009 08:45 pm (UTC)
"Oh..." She replied, grimacing a little. "Sorry, got my wires crossed there, huh?" She asked with a small smile.
5th-Feb-2009 08:46 pm (UTC)
"Baby, I feel guilty leaving him for a few hours to come out to dinner. I only agree to it because I know that in the long run it's a lot better for him to have to happy, relaxed, and very much in love parents."
5th-Feb-2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
"I know," She replied, reaching under the table to gently pat her knee. "He has so much fun too though, with Dad." She smiled.
5th-Feb-2009 08:48 pm (UTC)
"He does," Sara agreed with a nod and a smile. "Your father enjoys it and Aiden's going to be glad to have that bond later in life," she said, before blushing.

"We said we wouldn't talk about him."
5th-Feb-2009 08:50 pm (UTC)
"That's true," She replied with a little chuckle. "One last comment? I'm really glad they have that bond." She patted her knee gently once more.

"Now baby, lets have a look at what we want to eat," She took hold of her menu, opening it up.
5th-Feb-2009 08:55 pm (UTC)
"Me too," Sara agreed before turning her attention to her menu. The food here really did look good. They even had a large vegetarian selection, which was great for Sara. "Sharing?" she asked her.
5th-Feb-2009 08:56 pm (UTC)
"Sure thing," She smiled at her. She loved it when they did that. It felt far more intimate.
5th-Feb-2009 08:59 pm (UTC)
"Do you know what you're picking for your one?" she asked with a smile.

She looked the menu over for a moment then nodded, smiling over at her. "Thai Tempura with salad." She replied.
