"Oh really?" But Lucien couldn't keep the self-satisfied grin from his face as he picked up what dishes were left and carefully set them out in front of each place at the table. Trying to show some care, he took the time to straighten them out and align everything neatly.

"Some wine would be nice if you have it. But anything you have is fine, I'm not picky," he insisted with a grateful smile for her offer of hospitality. "Is there anything else I can do to help?"

"Wine it is then," she replied cheerily before nudging him into a seat. "You've done plenty. Dinner should be ready any moment by the smell of it." Riley whisked herself off again to get cups and drinks for the table, generously pouring Lucien a glassful before giving some to herself and her father.

Agam was not far behind her placing the still steaming and quite hot food on the table and taking his seat at the head of the table. Riley then sat herself across from Lucien, a shy smile lighting up her features every time she looked at the man. The old man then reached both hands out to the other two. Riley followed suit placing her hand in her fathers and offering her other across the table to Lucien. "Prayers," she whispered to him by way of explanation.

Lucien sat at the table setting with her offered glass, taking a small sip as the others sat and humming softly in appreciation. It was good wine, not bitter as he'd feared it might be.

Naturally he looked at each of them in mild puzzlement for the offered hands but gingerly took them and nodded his head instead of scoffing at her explanation. He had no desire to insult their religion even if he was not a devout follower. Instead of joining them in prayer, though, he just stared at the the steaming fish on the table looking so delicious and enticing and barely out of reach.

Riley smiled and squeezed his hand reassuringly once he had placed it within her own. She would not admit it out loud but she loved the feel of his hand in hers. It was softer than hers, with less callouses on the palms making her wish her own hands were more delicate and silky smooth. As her father began saying their prayer of thanks to the sea gods for their food and fortune.

"And thank you," she quickly added before her father could finish, "for bringing us a guest, delivered safely to shore." Her eyes brightened, as she quickly glanced up to his face before blushing and ending the prayer. "In your names we pray, so may it be." Riley squeezed his hand one last time before letting go and picking up the plate of fish to hold it out to him. "As our guest please take food first. We do not stand on much ceremony here but we don't go hungry and there is more than enough for all of us."

He looked up once their prayers had been spoken, smiling guiltily and thinking she'd caught him looking at the fish in those moments. "Well I'm honored, thank you," Lucien murmured, reaching to obediently pluck a piece of fish from the plate to place down on his own.

Before he would dig in to his dinner, though, he eyed Agam and Riley expectantly until both had food on their plates. In the meantime he sipped at his wine again, savoring it even though it wasn't the finest he'd ever had. It was still the finest he'd had in a long while.

"Thank you for the invitation. It's been a while since I've had a proper home cooked meal at the table," Lucien directed towards her father with a knowing smile. At least it hadn't exactly been a lie.
