Carrying a cup of one of Lily's brews, Iris enters the sick bay and makes her way over to Tobias. Keeping her voice low to avoid disturbing her other patients, she asks, "Captain? Are you awake?" She pauses. "I have some tea from the doctor for you."

Tobias may notice that she's wearing the jewelry he gave her.

Tobias' eyes flutter open from his light sleep at the sound of Iris' voice. Seeing her so close at hand causes his breath to catch in his throat, as even in the dim light of the sick bay her beauty is so radiantly evident to him. The captain forces down his feelings of panic, trying to find his tongue.

After a few hesitant attempts to try and speak, the love struck captain sighs and gathers his courage. Instead of reaching for the tea, Tobias decides to speak outright before his resolve leaves him. Of the other patients in sickbay, be they awake or asleep, he gives no regard.

"You know... Iris... this might be a bit... of a forward way to start a conversation, but... I have a hundred different things I want to say to you. I even kept... kept rehearsing this conversation over and over again... And now that you're right in front of me? It's... it's all just gone right out of my head!" Tobias gives a shy if rueful smile to her. "I remember I... I was going to say how lovely you are, I remember that. More importantly I was going to... going to talk about how kind you are... and how... how thoughtful..."

He gestures with his good hand to a nearby chair. "Please... Would you sit with me? Just for a bit? And then perhaps I can untangle my tongue long enough to..." Tobias talks a large breath, idly wondering if the doctor slipped something in his tea earlier to help him along. "To tell you how much in love I am with you."

She lowers her gaze, coloring despite herself, suddenly seeming more like the teenager she is rather than the image of the confident woman she tries to project.

She lowers herself into the chair, still holding the mug, in an effort to buy herself some time. "I...I..." she stammers, suddenly tongue-tied. Then it all falls from her lips. "I feel the same way about you. I...I think I have since that day you came to meet us in High Tortuga." She smiles at the memory. "Peregrine is a good man, but he's Lily's choice, not mine. And then you appeared, and showed us so many new things...and," she pauses, and smiles ruefully, "and I'm babbling. I'm sorry."

His mouth and throat feel dry as he gulps again and licks his lips. "No. No, don't apologize. I can't even keep my words straight, so..."

Losing track of where he was going with the statement, he switches topics. "I've been talking to Lily. You know. About a lot of things. Because... I wanted to have things to talk about with you. I want to... I felt I needed to know about how things work in your tribe before we... had a chance to talk, Iris. What I wrote in my letter? I meant it. Once my cousins are safe... or at least as safe as I can make them... Well, I'm hoping your elders will see the value of having an airship at their disposal."

Tobias reaches out with his good hand to take one of hers. "I know that we haven't... we haven't had much time to try and talk with each other, and that's mostly my fault. Until we can arrange for something... something more formal... Would you be willing to go out walking with me?"

She gives his hand a squeeze, smiling. "I'd be happy to."
