Who: Mabelle and Michel
What: Cello lessons
When: A few weeks after lessons had begun.
Where: His apartment
It was odd. Considering not too long ago he was doing everything he could to get Mabelle out of his life, he was strangely getting used to her being there a few nights each week. It was his own fault, really. Had he not insisted on lessons to begin with, he would've never had to see her except during those rare social functions where they would cross paths. However, the routine really didn't bother him that much. He was learning something new and he enjoyed teaching someone an instrument more than he thought he would. Partially because it meant he could yell at her with an actual reason to do so, but also because it was nice to have someone to occasionally play with. She wasn't doing too horribly, even for a woman with only eight good fingers.
He was never really sure when she would show up, so he took his time in making some tea while he was waiting for her. The weather was getting increasingly colder as the days passed and, though cheap and slightly bitter, warm tea was always good to have in the evening. If he didn't have much bread to eat, he at least had that.
