Menelaus looked up in surprise to see Helen anywhere out. He hadn't seen her since the meeting in the coffee shop, and while he knew she had something to work through, he wasn't a part of her life in that way to be anything more than a friend. He didn't overstep his bounds, he had someone else to look after.
He stood to greet her with more than a surprised look, hugging her softly. He was about to speak when Arianna screamed playfully as she knocked her suitor to the ground, just as a strong spartan woman would have done. "She likes playing pirates and sword fights." He shook his head lightly in amusement. "And apparently she's made a friend at school she didn't tell me about." Secrets were not something he liked.
