Susumu sat on one of the benches from the courtyard, looking at the fig trees. He was somewhat happy here...but there was still some discontentent with the voyage.

He tried to push the idea away and profit from the peace.

Dejanirah went out with a laundry basket to let the clothes dry in the sun.

"Namaste, slothy." She smirked.

''Namaste Lady Dejanirah...'' he arched an eyebrow and grinned ''...I would have ask if you needed help, but apparently I am slothy''

He stood up nonetheless

''I was wondering if you had time to talk''

"Always, Sri Pomelo."

She called him for a juicy fruit with a thick sour green skin. She threw his own wet shirt on him to take care of.

"What about?"

Susumu began hanging his own clothes on the line

''About you and your people, the Ra'shari. If you don't mind''

He moved to pick up something else

''I have not truly heard of your people before I met you and your sister''

"We're rather secretive folk, Sri, and for reasons. But feel free to try."

She smirked, but looked at him cautiously over her sister's dress.

''Secretive?'' he mused has he put Miriam's dress to dry ''You have been most hospitable thus far''

''Were do you and your sister come from? Were you born on the island?''

"Don't be fooled by the eagerness of my sister's thighs." She wagged a finger, smirking. "We are hospitable, but it doesn't change that other thing." She stopped for a moment. "We come from a land far east of here we were born in a caravan in the Endless Steppe, then caught by slavers as children and sold as a beginning of a young man's harem. But the man was both kind and gay, so he took no advantage but kept us not to offend his father and to appear manly for his peers. But he wanted to become a Mamluk officer so he arranged for the voyage that brought us here and enrolled, manumitting us right before. We've made a living here in the Hoof ever since."

"Slavery..." He shook his head "...it must have been terrifying"

He frowned "But what is ah-rhem?"

"Not really. We were spoiled and kept safe, away from hazards of life. Just cloistered and away from the caravan, a great punishment in itself. With time, the longing lessened, even if we still remember who we are. But we were probably very lucky still." She shrugged. "A harem is more or less a place for concubines of someone important who comes there whenever he or she wants to relax, enjoy conversation, music or sex. Concubines often give birth to children of their master, but like I said ours was not interested." Standing just opposite, she punched his chest through the laundry, laughing. "Sri Soosoom is surely thinking he has his own Ra'Shari harem now!"

Susumu laughed as he recoiled from the punch "Ah! I would not dare Lady Dejanirah! "
He made a few careful steps to hang another piece of clothing

"And it so happens, I do not think that there is any manliness in forcing young women into such a thing. Some might still view me as a villain but I still think a man should earn a woman's charm according to her own will rather then seek to possess it like a commodity."

"That is rather charming, Sri. But against how most societies work." Dejanirah chuckled wistfully. "What we think is freedom is often another type of enslavement. We are not slaves here, Miriam and I, but we are stranded, with no deserts to cross, cloistered with our figs."

"Would you wish to go away?" He asked, curious

"Maybe there's something better out there for Miriam and me, maybe not. It's a tough call, Sri Soosoom."

"It always is, I suppose, but knowing you can choose should you want to might help makes things feel less of a cage.

He paused while hanging one of his trousers

"How was it, living in a Caravan?"

"Nomadic."

She laughed.

"What I remember most are impressions. The child does not understand much, mostly just registers. Smells, music, voices of our parents..."

She sighed, and stopped putting out the laundry to sit on the bench for a moment.

''Nomadic'' he had replied with a chuckle and a shake of the head but Dejanirah's change of mood was not lost on him

He stopped as well and sat on the bench next to her. He did not say a word, however, prefreing to let her go at her own pace.

"The truth is, Sri, that I don't want to talk about it, nor am I entitled to. The business of the Caravans has always been their own. So asking more is not the best way to continue." She finally said after looking at him, playing with her necklace, both sensually and restlessly.

He looked at the necklace for a second or two then gave a nod.
Allright, I understand. I won't prod further about the caravans or the Ra'Shari if you don't want to.

"Yes, Sri Soosoom. We enjoy you, my sister and I, but we don't ask questions about you either. Our worlds touch, and it is a pleasant touch, but it would be very hard to make them overlap." She looked at him from across her shoulder.
