She would be lying if she wished at times her mate could understand some of the simplest things in society. It would be make things so much easier, but it would make her life absolutely dull. Raven was by no means a person that enjoyed showing off or rubbing it in to others when she knew something the other did not. Rather she was always eager to share knowledge or explain what she could to those that didn't understand. Like when Alexis needed to learn how a stove worked in order to cook a meal. Simple basic things, that everyone should know, wasn't something Raven would tease or berate others about. The woman was far too kind for her own good. The confused and blank stare she was receiving from her mate assured her that he was confused by her explanation that some words were strung together as sayings. Helplessly she shook her head finding his question a tab bit amusing. Like always, when helping her companion navigate through social norms, she spoke quite gently and slowly to allow him to understand.
"Well, when you die some people believe you go to heaven, and others think you'll go to hell. If you're a good person you go to heaven, and if you are a bad person you go to hell. You can't go to hell right now, because you have to die first...and that's not something you need to do right now. Trust me."
He did not need to die right now, or ever, in her humble opinion. Losing Tetradore was absolutely difficult, but losing her mate would be tremendously heartbreaking. She had no desire to go through another death of a loved one again. Such dark thoughts left her mind when she felt his hand grab her own, and drag her along, running towards whatever it was that caught his attention. Being half a cat, and Tobi, well literally anything could catch his attention. As they neared part of the park featuring a stature of a man, her eyes widened in horror as her mate exclaimed he found a woman with a beard, the werewolf knowing this was no woman. Tobias had managed to take them to a site that was supposed to honor and respect one of the smartest men to have ever walked the Earth. Knowing his track record and how easy he was capable of destroying things, Raven knew she had to get him away from here, and fast! Dorian was not in the country, and he wouldn't be able to get them out of trouble. Tobi couldn't break this stature. He just couldn't! Explaining to him what the stature represented she shook her head, disagreeing with his assertion that he was wearing a dress.
"Back then men wore clothes like that, they are robes, and they do look like a dress."
Blue-grey eyes narrowed when she overheard some of the strangers nearby begin to snicker and point at her mate. She was accustomed to having the public judge her mate poorly. They simply didn't understand, and they would never take the time to see just who he really was. He was brilliant in his own way. However, society doesn't favor someone being unique. Society expected everyone to follow unwritten rules and policies. Grabbing his hand she tugged him away before he could get any crazy ideas on how to steal Leonardo's beard. Instead she turned the conversation over about children. With his other half they had the conversation, but they never agreed on whether or not they were going to try. To be fair she wanted to have that conversation with him again to see if this particular side of him would be interested. Although would he understand? When her compliment was answered with a factual statement she turned her dial to stare at him. Well, it was true they were small, but did the size of a person help him decide whether or not he would be kind and gentle with others? Perhaps that animal side was in play, helping him understand that small people in their species needed to cared for, and treated quite differently.
The muttering under her breath was something she hardly listened to, tuning it out for a moment, as she hid within her thoughts, barely watching the children that ran around them. Feeling his hand grab her arm she stopped herself from walking, looking around the park, a bit puzzled as to why he would stop them. They weren't in any danger. Her eyes would widen slightly as he marched towards a group of children huddled around each other giggling and laughing. Curious as to what it was he found she followed after him, looking for what should be obvious, but wasn't. Seeing him grab a bottle off a stand she gasped in shocked, as Tobias turned around to show her what he found, her focus was entirely on the burly Italian man behind him. It was clear that Tobias had done something wrong. After all, the Italian was shaking his fists and hands, raising his voice to near shouting measures, a vein slightly popping from the side of his neck. That he had found the 'breath of a fish' with the bottle of bubbles was...well unique. It was out of the box and it sort of made sense. And this was why she wouldn't change her mate for any reason. He thought completely different of things. Her voice held a bit of hesitation as she warily responded, giggling softly.
"Hey, so...that is very good Tobi! However, we need to purchase the bubbles. Here, let me pay for it."
Stuffing her hand in her pockets she pulled out a few dollar bills, handing them to the man, which seemed to silence him. Breathing a sigh of relief she turned to look at her mate quite pleased that they had at least solved another item in that confusing riddle. Grabbing his hand again, she continued on walking through the park, speaking quite cheerfully.
"We just need to get a few more items, like the roots of a mountain and the bearded lady, a real one. I know it's possible for woman to have a beard, it's because of a defect. However, we can't forcefully take her hair, that would be rude."
