Farrah stretched, hands clasped over her head, as she studied the beautiful expanse before her through the condo's glass wall. The owner must have been extraordinarily wealthy to afford such a beautiful view, unobstructed by other buildings... or any sign of life at all. Maybe he'd bought the air rights for - what? - fifty miles in all directions. How people had so much made her head spin, even though, with Saaka's help, it really wouldn't be that hard for Farrah to make herself a small fortune. He knew stocks like some wall street wolf.

With a deep breath, she padded barefoot to the fridge for a snack. She couldn't take much or the owner would notice, but things that were at the back of drawers were usually fair game. For this particular hunt, that meant a pack of string cheese that expired last week. Whatever. She tore one off from its partners and started eating it the only right way - by slowly peeling. The fridge door closed quietly, and Farrah found herself staring at it for a few minutes after it had done so. Oh you have got to be kidding me. There was a picture of what was likely the host of this marvelous place, next to her least favorite human in all of existence. They were smiling, beers in hand. They looked for all the world to be the best of buds.

Farrah tore her gaze away and bit angrily at her cheese stick. She thankfully hadn't seen the bag of dicks since they're run in at the market, but her body didn't forget the heat he'd stirred in her... even though that was weeks ago. She didn't appreciate the reminder, especially with that picture making him look like some honestly-fun handsome guy.

You're allowed to like him, you know, came Saaka's ever-wise comment.
That is the last word I would ever use to describe my feelings toward him, she shot back.

She'd just strolled out onto the balcony to take in the fresh air - despite it being a somewhat crisp morning and she only donned an oversized t-shirt - when the doorbell sounded through the living space. Breath hitching, she quietly left the wonderful outdoor expanse and approached the front door. It had a peephole, thankfully, which she used only to determine if the person there was the owner. Which would be stupid, considering he wouldn't have run the doorbell to get into his own place. And if it were anyone else, she obviously wouldn't answer anyway, since this guy was gone for at least the next week. Hence her casual attire - time was on her side.

She absolutely fucking froze when the face on the other side of the door wasn't the owner, but the one goddamn mug that she'd prefer never to see again.

You're a really bad liar.

Life would have been a lot easier if Captain Asshole didn't most certainly know she was here. He probably fucking sniffed her out, like he always did. Closing her eyes a moment, Farrah took a deep, steadying breath. She swung the door open and leaned casually against the frame, eyes raking Logan. Her ankles crossed nonchalantly as she asked, "Missed me that much, huh?"

A brown paper bag in his arms, he was strolling to the front door without a cause for any pause. Of course he knew she was there. He knew before he had even arrived. Walked up the front steps and glanced down at Czar who was grumbling about the entire thing. He knew it wasn't ideal, but to be honest, he had a tough week and could really use a bit of reprieve. And if Farrah gave him anything, it was a reprieve from his normal day to day. The house had barely a handful of pictures. Maybe two or three. One of him and his friend, close enough to be his brother, and two others of some younger girls, about five or six. Steadying breath before he leaned with his elbow to ring the doorbell, listening to the all too familiar door bell ring out.

Really? You rung the doorbell? Czar was almost rolling his eyes at his human. "Of course, don't want to intrude after all." But most than anything, wanted to see if she had the fucking guts to open the door. And when he saw that rolling smirk, and relaxed mannerism his brows lifted up. Studied her for a moment before Czar pushed past and walked in without waiting for a response. "Seems maybe the opposite is true, seeing how-" He paused as he walked into the building, leaving her at the door wand entering down through the corridor before placing the paper bag on the island. Slowly removing two individually packaged steaks, some veggies, and a bottle of wine. "You are at my home."

That lazy grin, as the large wolf lowered himself onto the hardwood floor without much thought. Logan didn't even pause, a grin twitching over his lips as he looked up at her. "Hungry? I got us some steaks, and a barbeque on the patio. Unless of course, your pilfered that?"

He gave literally zero indication that he was surprised to see her. Zero. Because he'd followed her, that son of a bitch. She already knew it, but having it confirmed excited irked her. Couldn't he give her a few days to her fucking self? To enjoy the view? Take in the fresh air and beauty of the mountains?

Of course not, because his job was to ruin her life.

She didn't try to hide her distaste as Fido shoved past her; the only thing that kept her from punching the creature was the legitimate fear he may eat her. Logan waited a second, though, which honestly surprised her. What didn't surprise her (visibly) was his claim that this was his place. A chill shot down her spine before her brain could take over and rationalize that he was, per usual, lying through his teeth. This couldn't be his place. A - because look at this place, and look at him. B - because she'd cased the condo for a long ass time before figuring out the owner's routine and determining that this was the week she could call the building her own. And during none of that time did Logan show up.

Her eyes followed the man as he entered, specifically focusing on the bag and contents within it. Only semi able to forget that she was barely clothed, Farrah followed him to the island and looked over everything he'd brought. A weird stir of emotions roiled in her belly. He'd... brought her food? Like.. nice food. And wine. Her brow pinched together as she tried to figure out his play, because there had to be one. This man did nothing that didn't benefit him in some way.

"I... see that," she finished lamely, truly at a loss for words. "Why would I pilfer the...?" her voice trailed off, because the question wasn't even worth finishing. She kept her eyes on the food, because looking at him may cause her to melt at how potentially-cute this gesture was.. And like previously mentioned, this was definitely anything but that. He needed something, but it would be foolish of her to flat out ask him what that something was before she got to use him for the delicious food.

"You're cooking," she stated suddenly, standing straight and walking to the next room to retrieve her pants.

She had to be barely wearing anything. Could see the length of those legs, disappear into the hem of a shirt and could not help but wonder if she was wearing anything underneath. It pinched in his mind, if only momentarily before he distracted himself with busying himself by removing the contents of what he had purchased. For her? No. Never. He was just hungry.

The wine was. Well. Whatever. A snort from Czar at the thought. That wolf needed to mind his own damn business. Couldn't even take solstice in the fact she seemed flabbergasted by his offer. Too damn distracted. He put down something a bit too hard onto the table, as he growled at himself to stop. Just stop. She was leaving, departing, and the tension in his chest released somewhat before he placed the slabs of meat on the plate and made his way out of the condo onto the patio.

Of course, his friend was out of town for the week. The lovely Logan had been arriving to water the plants, and just generally look after the condo to prevent it from being empty for so long. Lucky for him, Czar had noted the scent well before he had actually driven up the long driveway to the condos. Had had time to pull back and get food and make a game plan. Which. Had gone out the window pretty much once he saw her barely dressed in a much too large shirt.

Turned the barbeque on. Watched the flames flicker beneath and let the grill heat up. Returned to let it heat, popping open the wine easily enough and pouring it expertly into the glasses of the home he knew really well. Leaning back, his hips pressing against the edge of the island as he held out a glass of wine in wait for her. Taking a long swig of his. Honestly, he could guzzle back the entire bottle. Should have picked up tequila. Luckily, there was some if he found he needed it.

Why bother, just take her in for break and enter, and be done with it. Unless that saucy minx in just a shirt got you thinking with the wrong head

A low growl in response to the wolf, a warning. "Is there a reason you are here? I see the paintings still on the walls. The crystal glasses still in the kitchen. Nothing seems taken. So? What's your deal?" Slow, his eyes creeping along the walls of Sebastian's place as if calculating what exactly she was going to try to steal from him.

Walking away should have been easier than it was, especially considering that dreaded tension had resurfaced between them. She didn't like being so aware of his every move. She'd always been, what with her prey instinct, but not in such a noticeably... sexual way. Even the slide of her jeans up her legs felt suggestive, which was absurd. Huffing at herself, she tugged them on the rest of the way and tucked the front of her shirt in before plodding - still barefoot - back out to the kitchen. She hated the way her stomach knotted at the prospect of continuing the charade with Logan.

The sight of him lazily leaning against the island, two glasses of wine in hand, made her hormones do this weird little flippy thing. Then her brain reminded her that this was all part of his ploy - whatever that might be - and she hardened against the thought even as she took one of the glasses gratefully from him. ”Stealing from my temporary housing would be in poor taste,” Farrah commented before taking a sip.

Swallowing, she continued, ”I think a better question is why are you here?” Yeah, he obviously knew the owner, but that didn't explain the food.. or wine. She had to try awfully hard not to view this as some attempt at romance; but again, all she had to do was remember literally any other encounter with him to shut down that train of thought.

Eyeing the man, Farrah stepped away and returned to the patio, pace leisurely. Leaning one hand on the railing, she closed her eyes for just a second… To revel in the nature standing before her, and to clear her head. The smell of the staff wafted over to her, and she had to take another drink of her wine to keep from drooling preemptively. Whatever the cause for this impromptu wine and dine, she had to admit she was grateful for it. She spent what little money she had very, very carefully - which meant literally nothing about this night fell into the category of “norm” for her. Because she knew Logan would follow eventually, she remained silent and waited for him to do so.

That grin as she took the glass from him. The lingering look as she took a sip. Temporary home? Well. Then. That explained why everything wasn't tossed around, not that Farrah had ever really been the type to destroy for what she wanted. More finesse than that. The question arose, why was he here? That famous grin of his moved even more, especially as she walked away and to the patio. Did not take long for him to follow. Promptly slapping the two steaks onto the barbeque once it was well heated, adn listening to the sizzle before his attention moved back to her. Watching the way her eyes were slipping shut, and she seemed to be completely relaxed, if only for a moment.

"Don't really know why my presence here is unusual, since y'know I actually know the person who lives here. And you are the intruder." His eyes moved over the expanse of the view, taking in the details of something he had seen much too often before his attention turned towards her. Finding it a little more entertaining. That quirk of amusement in his tone, raising up his win glass as if in a toast before speaking: "I'm staying here for the week, of course." While, to be fair, he hadn't planned on actually staying there, it seemed like it'd be a bit amusing. A long swig from his wine, that taunting grin never escaping. "You get the couch."

She hated that shit-eating grin, almost as much as she hated the man donning it. Why did he have to be so aggravating every step of the way?

So you don't sleep with him.
SAAKA.

Moment of calm escaping like a loosed bird, Farrah's eyes snapped open and she studied Logan from the corner of them. Her head bobbed back and forth at the 'you are the intruder' comment, a motion of eh, true... but nuance.

He raised his glass, and Farrah narrowed her gaze. He was about to say someth-.... Yeah, like that. Taking a steadying breath, she took another sip of her wine in lieu of answering. He wasn't done annoying her yet, so it would be best to save her freakout for when the rest was revealed. Like... the couch. Grimacing, she swallowed hard before she choked on her damn beverage. "You really, truly, can go fuck yourself... On said couch." Ooooh, she almost hated him enough to tell him to get the fuck out even before she got her steak. She turned to face him, hip cocked on the railing. "I get the guest room, because for once in your miserable life, you're going to be a gentleman." A low blow, even for her; she was pissed. This was supposed to be her sanctuary in her less-than-savory existence, and here he was, intent on ruining it. It frustrated her so much she legitimately wanted to cry. Was it so much to ask to just be able to enjoy this mountain expanse for a few days? Alone? With nothing but her (and Saaka's) thoughts?

She stared the cop down, daring him to refute her so she could smack his wine out of his hand... or punch him in the face. Really, there were two rooms to choose from, and of the two of them it would be far less disrespectful for Logan to sleep in the master, if he insisted on ruining her life. Though, truly, she probably wouldn't stay if he did... Actually, no, fuck that. This was her goddamn vacation from reality, and she was going to enjoy it to the fullest. She'd completely ignored his existence before - she could do it again.

Watched her over the rim of his glass, eyes sparkling in that way they did when he knew he had got under her skin. Knew she had a freak out coming. Had spoken such words, just to feel how fiery she would get. Which is something - Well he would not think hard on why he loved to get under her skin. Maybe it was simply because it was entertaining at how easy it was. Of course, he really should simply arrest her for trespassing and be done with it. Instead, here he is cooking her a steak. She made comment about the fact he was sleeping on the couch, or on Sebastiens bed and she would get the guest room and he simply snorted. No rhetoric made before he went into the kitchen for a few minutes. Leaving her to the beautiful patio and lovely view without the confining tension of him being with her. And her not near him.

Returning, he pulled out a chair from the patio table and placed a bowl of fresh mixed green salad on the table without a word. Picking the steaks onto each plate before sliding it onto the table a bit aggressively and plopping the bottle of wine on the table as well. Then he sat on the opposite chair and began to eat without commentary. Avoiding looking at her. She was infuriating. Pissed him right off. Should really just... But you really don't want to do you, Logan? Hey where is my steak? A grunt as he took a steady bite. Slow, steady breath as if his mind was made up and studied her. "Eat. And explain to me why I should not have Legionnaire come here, arrest you, and throw you in Panopticon for intruding?"

He had nothing to say? She couldn't decide which was more annoying - his stupid retorts or when he just left her to deal with how pissed he made her on her own. But he'd walked away now, which gave her a moment to collect herself. Her jaw was clenched so hard she was afraid she might break teeth... So she took a deep breath in and forced herself to roll her shoulders. Fuck that man. She downed the rest of her wine.

For some reason, he was still moving forward with the whole make-her-dinner thing, though now he seemed like he was second guessing it, if the way he dropped the plates on the table was any indication. Farrah rounded and watched the man work in that irritated way of his, which was kind of wonderful. He pissed her off, and then her bitter bites back got him just as mad. Did he even realize the cycle? And how easily he could avoid it?

She stood there a minute, watching him start to eat while pointedly avoiding looking at her. "You are such a child," she huffed under her breath quietly enough that he might not be able to make out the words, and took her seat with a roll of her eyes. Had a juicy steak not been in her immediate future, she would've left him to wallow in his pissy party all by himself. But she wasn't an idiot, so she took her share of the meal and cut into the steak. As far as her nose could tell, it was done to perfection... which annoyed her. It was also the best thing she'd put in her mouth in quite some time... Which amped up the annoyance.

When he asked the arguably most idiotic question of the night (thus far), Farrah's eyes flicked to Logan. "You're kidding, right? There's this thing about colluding with the enemy, and I'm pretty sure having dinner with her counts." She waved her knife at him while she spoke. "Not to mention, I'm fairly certain about 75% of your fun is questioning whether or not I'll beat the shit out of you for the asinine stuff you say.. And I can't do that in Panopticon, so it seriously devalues our interactions." She'd gone back to eating at the end there, picking at her salad. Now it was her turn to ignore him, though she did look up at him with a smirk.
