A new lover means a number of adjustments. There is the obvious, of course, but it goes beyond that. Growing used to someone beside you in bed, for example, and learning if they are the time to hold or to cling or to try and push you from the bed while you sleep. There's learning if they are the type to roll over and sleep immediately or to indulge in conversation. And, most importantly, there is learning just how much of your attention they demand.
Thus far, Eberict was proving to be more favorable than I'd expected. He was beyond attentive, something I hadn't expected in the slightest from the rather bookish warlock. He didn't cling but he did hold. He at least talked a bit before descending into slumber. He didn't stop me from slaking my magical thirst on his own aura--indeed, he did his share of indulging in my Light-tinged aura as well.
