Moments of closeness

Moments of closeness...
Since they have been friends for such a long time Tristania and Ruben feel pretty relaxed in each other's company, but there's alway been a lot of chemistry, and there are more and more moments of tentative closeness like this lately.
A lot of near-kiss situations, and they use every excuse to be close, but somehow they're either interrupted or shying away from letting it happen.

Eryn volunteered to foster her, and Amanthis has been p…

The healer's laboratory
