[Boone wakes up from the flash, he peels his body off of the hardwood floor. The all too familiar headache was beginning it's terrible onslaught, he hobbles to the kitchen for a glass of ice water and some Tylenol. Boone groans as he ruffles through the cabinets.]

*Alex steps out of the bathroom, tying up her hair and wiping her forehead. The headaches have started to give her an unbearable nausea. She waited in bed until it passed enough for her to go to the bathroom and rinse her face. She hears Boone ruffling through the cabinets in the kitchen and steps out.*

Headache?

[He glances over to her and nods.]
Yeah. It's like it gets worse every week.
[Boone finds the bottle of Tylenol, he pops it open and takes 3 for good measure.]
Want some?
Alex: :/listen_to_locke on May 19th, 2010 09:47 pm (UTC)
Ugh, no.
*She winces in disgust.*

I keep getting this awful nausea because of the headache. I can't stomach that.

*She lies down on the couch, covering her face with her hands, breathing deeply so the nausea passes.*

Did you see anything?
ifoundsomepens: Drained/Sleepyifoundsomepens on May 19th, 2010 09:56 pm (UTC)
[He rubs his temples, wishing the headache away.]
Suit yourself.
[Boone sits down on the armchair adjacent to the couch, he reclines and also covers his eyes.]
Want me to make dinner tonight? Since you feel so sick?
Alex: scaredlisten_to_locke on May 19th, 2010 10:10 pm (UTC)
Oh would you, really?
Because I would love you for it.

*She opens her eyes and looks at him.*
You didn't answer me - Oh!
Boone your nose is bleeding.
ifoundsomepens: Dude that's kinda grossifoundsomepens on May 19th, 2010 10:18 pm (UTC)
What?
[Boone brings a hand up to his nose. She was right.]
That's weird. Haven't had one of these since I was a kid.
[He stares at the blood on his fingertips.]
I guess fainting and hitting the floor must've aggravated my nose. [He wipes the blood off on his jeans, dismissing it.]

Yeah I'll make dinner.
Alex: not convincedlisten_to_locke on May 19th, 2010 10:23 pm (UTC)
Are you sure it's nothing?

Boone, did you really not see something?
ifoundsomepens: Eyebrowsifoundsomepens on May 19th, 2010 10:28 pm (UTC)
I died, a long time ago, of course I didn't see anything. I'll be fine, it's just a nosebleed.
Alex: thoughtfullisten_to_locke on May 19th, 2010 10:33 pm (UTC)
*Alex puts her hand over her eyes again.*

Well so did I. But I still wonder if one of these stupid flashes will show me something, you know.
ifoundsomepens: TeeHeeifoundsomepens on May 19th, 2010 10:36 pm (UTC)
Well, I wouldn't get my hopes up.
Alex: dont approvelisten_to_locke on May 19th, 2010 10:45 pm (UTC)
Well excuse me for not being into this gratuitous nausea inducing headaches!
ifoundsomepens: Disapprovingifoundsomepens on May 19th, 2010 11:26 pm (UTC)
[Boone frowns her yelling mixed with his migraine made an unpleasant combination.]
Okay, okay. I get it.
Alex: aaaawlisten_to_locke on May 19th, 2010 11:41 pm (UTC)
*She sighs and then talks softly.*
I hate them too, Boone. I'm tired of them too.
Let's not have a fight because of them.

Look, I love you. and I'll love you some more if you make dinner. Isn't that the kind of offer you can't resist?
ifoundsomepens: Grin/ICWUDTifoundsomepens on May 19th, 2010 11:46 pm (UTC)
[Boone shifts in his chair, once again covering his eyes.]
I'm guessing that's a hint.
What're you in the mood for?
Alex: ugh fmllisten_to_locke on May 20th, 2010 12:40 am (UTC)
*She giggles*
How about you make chicken salad and toast some bread?

*She sighs, rubbing her forehead slightly.*

I hate nausea, I hate headaches. I hate these stupid flashes.
ifoundsomepens: :\ifoundsomepens on May 20th, 2010 12:54 am (UTC)
Alright, sounds good!
[Boone bonelessly gets up from his chair.]
You're not the only one, believe me.
[He meanders into the kitchen and begins cooking.]
Alex: sighlisten_to_locke on May 20th, 2010 12:59 am (UTC)
*She listens to Boone in the kitchen for a while. In silence. She takes deep breaths until her nausea eases a little bit.

It takes a few minutes but when she feels indeed a bit better she walks into the kitchen. She doesn't interrupt him, just sneaks around him to put some water to boil some water to drink some tea.*

Need any help?
ifoundsomepens: Cookin' Booneifoundsomepens on May 20th, 2010 01:02 am (UTC)
[He's just finished spreading garlic butter over the bread.]
Nah, I got this. Thanks for asking though.
Alex: biting liplisten_to_locke on May 20th, 2010 01:11 am (UTC)
I'm gonna make some tea if you want some.

*She leans against the counter while she waits for her water, playing in her hands with the cup and the tea bag she just placed in it.*

Boone...
Tell me about the world outside. I want to know more about it.
ifoundsomepens: Friendlyifoundsomepens on May 20th, 2010 01:19 am (UTC)
[He leans back, lifting his eyes to the ceiling in thought.]
Well, it's so much... older than this place. Not like physically older, but uh... historically. You can see how people have shaped it, not like here.
Of course it's full of people too, and obviously everybody's different...
[He pauses, not really knowing what to say without insulting her intelligence.]
It's kind of hard to explain. It's faced paced in places, and in others is just as slow, if not slower, than this island.

Well, my father is kind of a history geek, so I know some of that.

*She tilts her head to the side.*

But that's not really what I meant. I mean, what things did you love about it? Do you miss anything? Places, things you had, things you could do...
I don't know, things that seem very normal to you are things I've never done, like going to a restaurant or going to the movies!
ifoundsomepens: smile with smirkifoundsomepens on May 20th, 2010 01:42 am (UTC)
I miss a lot of things. I miss crowds, I miss grocery stores, I miss the gym, Cable TV, and I miss some people too.

I guess I just really miss hanging out in the city, just going to a coffee shop or a club. Doing whatever I wanted. There's this really great doughnut shop in L.A.... Korea town was pretty awesome too. [He trails off, thinking about the food.]
Yeah, I miss going to the movies, watching the oscars... even though they were boring. [He stops once again, lost in his memories.]
Alex: :)listen_to_locke on May 20th, 2010 01:48 am (UTC)
*She smiles.*

What do you think I'll like?
ifoundsomepens: figure it outifoundsomepens on May 20th, 2010 01:54 am (UTC)
You'd definitely love downtown L.A., it's just full of things to do; restaurants, parks, malls. You'd have a blast just spending you days doing stuff there, you'd never get bored.
Alex: pretty smilelisten_to_locke on May 20th, 2010 02:07 am (UTC)
Will you take me clubbing or to the movies?
