Second home ((Open!))  
Schreber has been puttering for about a week, pinpointing back and forth from home and setting up his lab again. It's been pretty much empty since his heart attack and that was a while ago. He's visited once or twice to show Sarah around but now he's moving things in and setting up his room again. There's another beat up couch (Not the same one, that's at the beach house), and his lockbox with the brainjuice samples, and the computer is up and running. There's also a box with a lamp that's supposed to simulate real sunlight and a little wire rack like you're supposed to put in a patio for flowerpots. Schreber is still puttering because he's not really sure where to get started but the door is open (that makes him a little jumpy) and there's a sign taped to the door with his name on it again. The old one got swept away in the flood.
Orwell is on the arm of the new couch, pulling at threads and watching the door anxiously for visitors but the lab seems very quiet these days.
Current Mood: busy

"No... I can't. Sometimes the experiment makes it impossible to observe the re...sults from that side." He fidgets a little and looks sorry that she took her hand away. "Only... if you're sure. I've gotten a few volunteers through the Nexus in... the past. The feedback isn't always as... detailed as I'd like though."

She brings her hand back then and scoots closer to him for good measure. Pet pet. "I'm sure." She smirks a little at his comment. "If you're going to be recruiting volunteers again, you might want to make up a questionnaire of some sort. People tend to be vague when they don't have the vocabulary to describe what's happening to them."

"I should... I'm not used to doing things that way at all. I'm a little worried putting more... requirements on my volunteers could cut down on the number even more." Petting is nice. He might forget to eat though, unless she leaves some food with him when she goes back to work. "I'd... love to have you know enough that I could bounce i...deas off you..."

"Well, you can see how it goes. If someone's really interested in helping, they're not going to mind answering some questions."

She'll leave the basket and tupperware containers with him. He can save some of the food in his refrigerator if he has any leftover, or he can clean the tupperware since he promised to take on that chore.

"Well, then you better start teaching me," she grins. "I could come back here after work today. Or maybe this weekend we could get started?"

"Either of those." He smiles and actually looks a little bit excited about this. "If you're tired after work it can wait for the weekend." He reaches for her hand and squeezes it. Better leave the food and let him take care of the dishes later.

"Mmm, maybe this weekend, then. I've got some lesson plans to work on." She smiles and finishes up her lunch. "I'd better get back soon," she notes, after checking her PinPoint. "Did you want me to take Clio back with me, or leave her here?"
dr_schreber: fascinateddr_schreber on April 3rd, 2007 07:50 pm (UTC)
He nods and doesn't look disappointed at all because maybe tonight they'll cuddle instead. "Wherever you think she'll be happiest." He's watching Sarah with a kind of dreamy-happy expression now.

She's not sure what he's thinking about, but she really likes the way he's looking at her. She glances over at Clio who seems to be having a fun time following Orwell around. "Email me if she becomes a nuisance." She kisses Daniel goodbye, first on the lips, then on his forehead for good measure. "See you tonight," she murmurs before PinPointing out.

The animals will keep him company and he'll have to eat the food she's left or else they'll get it. He kisses back and watches her go, happily thinking about her learning all about his work.
