"I suppose you are right. Conversations aren't really at the ready when you are supposed to be dead," he smiled down at her, patting her hand that was resting on his arm. "I'm glad to have you here, since you already knew I wasn't dead. Makes things a lot easier. And at any rate, if you are lonely, let me know. I will always be at the ready to spend time with you... whether you are living with servants or not." He gave her a playful wink.
