Mia spent most of her time traveling. She taught classes and gave seminars all over the world. Tokyo University had requested her to give a speech so she was in town for a couple days. The rest of the Ronins were out, that left Sage and Mia sitting in the kitchen and talking.
Sage found it a great relief to just have some adult conversation for a chance. No horrible innuendos or implied inappropriateness to torture by his imagination.
Taking his cup, Sage moved to the counter to refill his tea. The slamming of a door, followed by muffled voices drifted into the room. Immediately plagued by an intense desire to avoid his housemates, Sage tried to calculate the chances of escaping the kitchen before they arrived. Stepping back quickly, Sage bumped into Mia. She stumbled backward and Sage reached out to steady her, causing some tea to splash out of the cup and down on Mia’s slacks.
“I’m sorry.” Sage apologized.
Mia waved it away, “No, no, it’s okay. It was just an accident.”
She headed out the door and up the stairs as the other Ronins entered.
“Hey Mia,” Ryo called, “Where are you going?”
“Just to my room,” she said. “Sage made me wet. I’m going to take care of it and be right back.” Mia disappeared up the stairs.
The men turned to stare at Sage.
Rowen broke first, a large grin splitting his face. “Way to go man!” he said, slapping Sage on the shoulder. The others followed suit, congratulating him and slapping him on the back.
“I hate you.”
