Poor thing had regressed in her phobia of aquatic life, she looked him over not really looking forward to being so close to all the squiggly tentacles so she meekly held her hand out. “H-Hand hug? I-I do apologize Herr, I just… My tolerance had taken two steps back.”
She felt horrible, it wasn’t any of his fault, he’s been nothing but kind to her and she almost didn’t want to say why she regressed because it was really really REALLY stupid but to her it was like getting shot. “I was going to prepare some Schnitzel the other day but I must have grabbed the wrong meat because after breading one side, I turned it over to bread the other and I just noticed the lines of where fish bones used to be… I touched a fish.”
"Ahh I see."
Ray offered up a smile to the medic. “Do not need to worry mademoiselle. I am sure zis fear of yours will pass oui? If ever jeou need assistance with it I am more zan glad to help. After all, I am technically jeour worst nightmare, hmm? if jeou can some day give me a hug then I am sure jeou will succeed.”
