The kettle whistles and the teapot is promptly filled with water. Waiting for the leaves to steep, Manish draws up a small can of biscuits and sets them on a plate.

"Right," he murmurs, hovering plate and tea set over. "This is from Puttabong tea estate. Watered directly from the Rangeet River." He sets them down, slipping his wand back into his robes. "Smell that aroma of wild berries?"

t was a beautiful night. Aisha was distracted by the brilliant sky through the window when Manish appeared with what smelled like berry heaven.

She almost groaned in delight, instead swallowing that reaction and only humming. "That smells divine, Manish, thank you." With a soft hand, she took one cup and lifted it to her nose to smell. Good tea was possibly the best thing in the world - excluding a good song to go with it.

Aisha never expected to be in this position. Manish had seemed... not her type of friend at first, but the man was surprisingly entertaining - and he had the best tea. What wasn't to love? She took a sip and leaned back in her chair happily. "Mm, are you a tea deity? You must be."

Manish, in a good mood, settles opposite Aisha with his fresh brew of tea. "My family's business started as a tea trading company," he explains smoothly, "Some of their tastes rubbed off on me."

He wouldn't go so far to call himself a deity, though certainly, with a more sensitive palate than your average Joe.

"It's rare to find someone so appreciative of the flavours," he comments, "Contrary to popular belief, most British don't know the first thing about their tea."

T he interested hum that came out of Aisha was cut off as she took another sip. "And those tastes are impeccable, for sure." Pulling her sweater more fully around her torso, she settled back into her chair.

Aisha let out a soft chuckle at his words. "I would say it's a good thing I'm not British - but Americans aren't much better." She gave a single-shouldered shrug. "I give my Iranian heritage credit for my taste in tea. My mother always had something brewing." In fact, the warm cup she had in her hands now reminded her of better times sitting at her mother's table.

He glows inwardly a little at the compliment. Manish lolls the tea around in its cup, looking at the clear golden liquid, before taking a languid sip from the cup.

"Sounds a little like my mother," he replies ruefully, "But with cooking in general. She had quite the penchant for it." If he breathes in now, he can imagine the scent of fragrant spices, as though back in her kitchen.

L aughter rolled out of her at the mentions of mothers. "Mothers are magic aren't they?" Aisha gives him a squinted little smirk over her cup.

It really was good tea. Normally Aisha would have to smile around a mouthful of bitter dredge - but this time she happily sipped it regularly. "So," she began, resting her cup on her crossed knee. "Manish Tripathy. I'll admit I know nothing about stars, other than their beauty. Give me an interesting fact."

Manish tries to imagine what his mother would say if she were told that. Perhaps she would laugh and find it all amusing.

He raises his gaze to meet hers, eyes twinkling with interest. Talking about stars never ceases to excite him. Not then, not now. "The stars we see are all long passed. Yet, the light from them is so bright that we still see them here and now."

With a flourish of his hand, he gestures to the starry sky above, looking toward it with a vast look of wonder.

Logically, she knew that. But the way Manish put it was... poetic. Beautiful. Aisha follows the swipe of his hand, looking up at the sky in wonder. She considers her next words carefully.

"When I saw them during my tours in Afghanistan, it felt like they were my only friends." There had been a small window in that room. When night had fallen (twice it had) she remembered watching the stars and thinking of home.

Aisha shakes her head. "They helped me stay sane, that's for sure." She takes a sip of her tea.

Only friends. Manish thinks it's a feeling he knows far too well, an emotion he's felt one too many times. He smiles, reminiscent.

"They're beacons. Polaris serves as the current pole star. It moves minimally, so travellers have always relied on it for measurements and wayfinding."

"Good to know, if you ever find yourself lost in a desert, I suppose." He raises his cup to his lips.
