Simon began gathering things he needed to brew the tea, like his teapot and some water and a couple of cups, while 'Mark' started by saying that his friend was surely the most beautiful woman Simon had ever met. Simon considered this for a moment, his mind bringing forth the images of more than a few incredibly stunning women he had met and helped in his time as potioneer. He narrowed down the women in his mind as the man described her hair, her eyes, her voice, her skin, and whoever it was sounded beautiful indeed. It sounded very much like he was in love with her, rather than simply her friend. A friend would have likely said something like 'her hair is brown and she has blue eyes', though it was possible this Mark was a poet or bard of some sort and this was simply how he would describe anyone.
He turned his attention away from the pot of slowly boiling water as the other man cleared his throat, and he wondered if he expected a response from Simon, so he nodded contemplatively and it seemed to work well enough. Tehodis Kitai, he continued, and Simon's blood turned to ice as the memory of the woman, the curse, the explosion and everything that had happened afterward came unbidden to the forefront of his mind. He turned back to the tea and scooped some of the leaves into the teapot, then poured some of the boiling water in as well while he tamped down the weird amount of panic the memory brought. He hadn't seen Tehodis since she left the next day, nor had he seen or heard from Charlotte or Endless.
"I remember Tehodis, yes," he spoke, pouring tea into each of the two cups and bringing them over to the chairs. He handed Mark his cup first, then sat on the opposite chair and crossed his legs. "She had a hell of a curse on her, and I certainly hope it never happens again. It nearly killed her, and then me, and destroying the bracelet nearly blew up my cottage. It took me a week to get it fixed up and organized again." He said the last part without irony, though to look around the place it would be hard to imagine this as 'organized'. "It's lucky she was brought here as quickly as she was, or it would have killed her."
