He fights back a wince at the mention of the latter. That's a problem he likes to pretend he doesn't have, nope.

"Just what you were talkin' about there, I mean, when you said I was definitely right." What do you mean that wasn't her wording? Firo continues on as smoothly as he can while fighting back a grin. "I couldn't really make head or tail of all that smart stuff she was sayin' back then."

He could try now, having Szilard's knowledge. But nah.

He winces, though what she's saying is something he's been guessing at for a while. "That I'm sorry about."

The things he--no, Szilard--did to Ennis were deplorable. No one should have to live like that.

Firo's thinking something along the same lines as Rey. He rolls his glass in his hand contemplatively. "I think there're some things about it I just don't understand. She doesn't really talk about it, but... I think it'd be kinda nice if she could know you."

And, of course, just knowing Rey in general is nice, he thinks with a slight smile.

Firo shrugs a shoulder. "Would be nice, but I'd never wanna make her come to this hellhole."

His heart clenches painfully, even though it's the truth. As much as it hurts missing her... seeing her suffer would be worse. It's her safety that comes first, not his happiness--and shouldn't he be happy anyway knowing she's not being hurt by this place?

"I'd rather take you home to her."

That probably sounds a little weird to be saying to the chick you're drinking with, but Firo hasn't been on enough (read: any) dates to know that.

Bro, you're a bro.

Unaware of the danger she's averted for him, Firo grins at her comment. He cheerfully swings his feet under the bar, probably too obviously showing the joy Rey felt when she shared in his lovey dovey feelings.

"Yeah? She'd love you. She's quiet, too, but she's really nice. Won't pry or anything."

There are more eloquent words for what he wants to say, but Firo isn't an eloquent man.

He notes the flush on her cheeks with some amusement and surprise. "You gettin' drunk already?"

Firo positively beams at Rey's assessment. Ennis is much loved among the Martillos as well, of course, but it always makes him happy to hear other people appreciate her. She went far too long without a scrap of goodwill thrown her way; she deserves this.

"She is." He could talk all day about how wonderful she is and why. Many times, he wants to.

"How can I tell?" He cocks his head to the side. Firo doesn't often think on the emotional cues he picks up. Sometimes he's just not paying attention to them, sometimes--like when working or playing card games--it's almost to instinctual to even articulate. But he'll use his brain for Rey.

He waves his hand at her. "Your face--sometimes people blush like that when they get drunk. It's somethin' we watch for at my place."

Firo watches her perform her little test with a raised eyebrow. He'd be smirking if he weren't slightly concerned about her--what is she doing?

"Huh. ...You feelin' okay, then? Not gettin' sick or anything?"

Firo is, of course, aware that people blush when they're embarrassed. But there's no reason for Rey to be embarrassed, is there? Fever might be more likely, if that's a problem for a woman who can go up like a torch.

Firo's about to polish off his drink, but pauses mid-sip.

"Then what's up?"

An alternative--probably the most logical one so far--occurs to him and he slowly lowers his glass to the bar. He stares down at it, now blushing himself, though more with guilt than anything else. "...Um, it doesn't like... embarrass you when I talk about Ennis or anything, does it? I-I thought you were okay with it!"

That's not the reaction he expected. Firo watches her clean herself off as he tries to figure out how the heck to react.

"...If it's gonna make you choke, I think I'd better worry about it."

He laughs as he says it, but it's tinged with nervousness. His eyes stay fixed on hers, waiting expectantly.

Firo runs his fingers through his hair, trying to ignore the warmth he knows is coming from his face. "Um, thank you." He bobs his head in something like a nod of gratitude, something like simple acknowledgement of her words. "That's... that's good to know."

He leans forward, resting his elbows on the bar. "Confused how?"

Rey's a Smart Person. Not simply intelligent, but one of those people that Firo imagines he could ask any piece of trivia and they'd have the answer. Firo can't really picture her all that confused outside of a conversation about her own humanity.

When she slouches on the bar, Firo starts, his own posture becoming rigid with alarm as hers goes relaxed. For a moment, he thinks of taking it back and apologizing; plainly this is doing... something to her. But then she finally speaks and he shuts his mouth to listen.

When she finishes on that question, he's still quiet for a moment. The outrage he feels at hearing a friend referred to as a tool had nearly bubbled out of him when he spoke, but now his feelings are too tangled up for him to know what exactly he wants to say. He rights her glass before looking back up at her.

"Maybe they fucked up. Isn't a good thing? You still feel 'em now, so..." He shrugs.

He doesn't realize just yet the implication that Rey may have just admitted to liiiiking someone.

He winces when she hits her head. Not so much at the sound as just the thought of it. Friend is hurt. That hurts Firo. "Rey. Cut it out."

He taps his fingertips against her forehead, then tries to coax her face up.

It slowly occurs to him that some of the stuff she's saying is awfully specific. While he knows few people from her world, he wonders if nailing down just who this person is will help talk her out of the thought that that person should hate her. "...Who's this, exactly?"

Seeing her up is better and he settles back in his chair.

Maybe who isn't the right question, considering it sounds like the two of them are tangled up in a pickle much larger than a simple crush. "What happened? With all a' this."

He's surprisingly patient for a Firo, sipping quietly from his glass as he keeps his eyes fixed on her. He will hear this story, but there's no need to rush it out of her just yet. Of course, he doesn't even know how to do that in the first place.

Immediately, Firo wants to protest that Rey does plenty of things right. But as she speaks, he's stopped with his mouth hanging open.

It's not even the phrase "her wife"--a very odd thing to hear out loud in Firo's time--that gives him pause. Nor is it the fact that Rey killed a woman, because Rey's obviously killed a lot of people; no sense crying over that spilled blood.

But of all the people to fall in love with, it had to be the one related to one of those victims. Damn it, Rey, what is with you and all your regrettable murders?

He scratches his head. "...Okay. So, uh, are you sure she doesn't like you..?"

He never thought he'd be giving anyone love advice. Especially not for a situation as, admittedly, fucked up as this one.
