James laughed at Teagan's joke, repeating, "Maybe the grass was just lazy..." to himself under his breath, shaking his head. "That's a good one. I wish Mrs Patterson's grass was more lazy, she seemed so sad when she told me how much of a mess it looked. I didn't think it looked like much mess really, it's only grass, but it was important to her." And if it was important to her, James was more than willing to help.

"Wow, you must be a relic, not having any social media." James joked back.

His attention was soon taken with the food and the decision of what to buy.

"Hmm.." James really wasn't good with spicy food and as much as he liked the sound of chorizo, he had a better idea. "That's settled, then. Can I have one of each of the tarts?" He smiled up at the person behind the stall, pointing to one each of the tarts he'd mentioned. When they wrapped in greaseproof paper, James turned around and passed one parcel over to Teagan, not bothering to ask before presenting it to him.

"You'll have to tell me how good it is." James informed him, "And how spicy it is too. Actually... it can't be that bad. Give me a bite." He changed his mind as quickly as he'd made it.

Teagan chuckled in amusement that James liked his joke that much. “Who is Mrs. Patterson?” Did he know? Did he recall? Nope. He drew a blank, so it was better to ask than not. He snorted when he was told that he must be a relic. “My quality of life has, surprisingly, not been effected. And like I said, I don’t keep in contact with anyone out of town, besides my son, so… it doesn’t really matter.” He physically saw people. Why did he need to read about if they were enjoying dinner, or having a baby shower? They could just call and tell him. Or email, if it was so important.

The tart situation moved very quickly. Teagan mentioned that he ate spicy food, and suddenly he was the sampler. He chuckled again, “Okay…” but before he’d even tried it, he had to laugh because James was asking for a bite. It couldn’t be that bad, he said. Teagan held it out for him, and tore off a part for himself. “I like it. I don’t think its that spicy.” But then again, he was very used to high spice foods. He didn’t eat them for every meal, but he could stomach a lot. Usually if he didn’t, it was because he didn’t want to bother his roommate’s palette. She was soft and fragile in effectively all regards, and if she wasn’t, he didn’t want to test and find out which.

Once James had had his test, Teagan took another piece off the tart to try, “So… how is it for you? And do you just not like spicy food or… have a sensitive stomach? I don’t really remember anything about it. But I don’t suppose you ever ate at our house.

Mrs Patterson was, of course, James' elderly neighbour - though he was yet to introduce her as such.

"My neighbour," he quickly explained, tone easy, "The one I was telling you about, who has the grass that needs cutting. I... don't know her first name, actually. I can't remember if she gave it to me or if I forgot. She's really sweet. I think she might have been slightly scared of Gabriel, but she was really nice to me. She told me all about her husband and how they met." James had listened very attentively, pleased to have the information bestowed upon him rather than seeing listening to an old lady's life story a chore. "Although, it was strange that the second time I saw her, she told me the same story. She probably forgot me!" He laughed.

James was always torn when it came to spicy food. It wasn't that he had an overly sensitive stomach and he wasn't picky when it came to food, but he didn't handle hot or spicy food too well. He tended to get very sweaty and very red and want to douse himself in a bath of ice cold water. He knew this, and yet he also thought that trying different and exotic sounding foods was something cool to do so he often did it anyway.

He shook his head. "I can't remember eating at your house either... but it was a long time ago. And no, no, my stomach's fine. It's mostly the whole mouth on fire situation." He gave a small laugh, "I trust you, though. I'll be fine! I'm sure it's not that spicy."

Rather than take the tart and then take a bite, James just took a bite from the tart while Teagan was holding it, assuming Teagan was holding it out for him. He even took hold of Teagan's wrist to angle it right. To others it might have seemed a strange thing to do but to James, it just seemed logical.

He made an appreciative sound when he'd backed away again, chewing his mouthful. It tasted very nice, the spiciness there but not too overwhelming. "It's good..." He was saying, pleased with himself for being able to handle it, before a second, unexpected wave of spiciness hit his mouth. He cleared his throat, brought his hand up to his mouth and coughed, trying to blink away the feeling that his eyes were going to water. "Oh. Oh, wow. That's.. it's got a kick to it." He coughed again, grinning through his obvious discomfort before quickly uncapping his bottle of green tea and taking a quick drink.

James’ neighbor was Mrs. Patterson, the one he’d mentioned, but not by name. James seemed pleased that she had told him all about meeting her husband, and not bothered that she’d forgotten. Teagan chuckled, “Well, she’s probably had a lot of time to tell stories, can’t always remember who you’ve told what.” Teagan was not old but he knew sometimes it was hard to keep track. You had to catalogue all your life events as compared to everyone you’d spoken to, after all. He could have guessed dementia, but that wasn’t the easiest possible answer, so he didn’t bother. “She seems nice though.

Teagan was taking in James’ answer about the food before rather quickly becoming distracted by James eating the food out of his hand. It was one of those things that he wouldn’t bother anyone by doing unless he was dating them. Just being very much in someone’s space, even in a rather… casual(?) sense. He wasn’t sure what to feel, although he realized it was just evidence that James was on a different wavelength. Teagan could not blame their former relationship for this because he would have been alarmed enough he probably would have dropped the food if James had tried that as a child.

So how was it? “Its good…” That washed away though, and James was soon struggling to handle the spice.

Oh…” Teagan cringed slightly, seeing that James was coughing and struggling, even if he was trying to act like everything was fine. “Um, sorry about that. I guess now I have a better idea of what you are good with. Um, I can look for a smoothie drink, that will be better than just tea for soothing the heat,” Teagan suggested quickly, looking around before he got an answer. He could ignore awkwardness to feel guilty, so when he did spot somewhere with a milky sort of drink he said, “I’ll just get one of those,” and made the small trip to purchase one for James, whether or not James followed. He held it out for him as a sort of apology.
