The hug was well received and it seemed to break the ice. She reciprocated by throwing her arms around him and after she was given a kiss hello, Honey Sky returned the favor by giving him a great big lipstick stamp kiss against the apple of his cheek. "It's been far too long." She released him, smiling brightly as she did. She was not too demonstrative a person...but Paul had always been kind to her and she always appreciated that he hadn't assumed anything about her but reserved judgment for himself. She respected that.
His explanation put a slight crinkle in her brow and she touched the upper part of his arm, giving him a comforting squeeze and said softly, "My deepest condolences, Paul." and although she wanted to bring up the fact that this was another strange coincidence (Vincent's father also having recently passed away) she abstained, not being the classless sort. "I am glad to see you." She let go, again severing her physical connection with him and instead took a seat since he'd offered.
"I'd love a glass of water...if it isn't too much trouble." She found herself parched suddenly, probably from the shock of being seeing him, "You do know Xand...Vince is here too right?"
