    Sam shakes his head. Very briefly an extremely large key materializes in his hand, spins wildly around his wrist by the guard, and vanishes in a shower of little sparks.

    Normally, Marina would respond to being called her lady’s favorite with ecstasy and pride - but for once her reaction is notably conflicted. There’s a nervous unease as the maid smiles, eyes avoiding her mistress as she composes a reply.

    ”I... I believe I’ve proven myself more than loyal, eager enough to do anything it takes to satisfy your wants and needs.” The innuendo seems entirely unintentional. She wrestles with her nervousness for a beat or two, and she finally works up the courage to address Suzie directly. “But... well, I don’t want to just earn your favor and attention. I - I adore you, milady, and I want to - I want to be more than just another minion to you.”
    [Little Fish, Big Ambitions]

    Suzie's eyes widen slightly, caught momentarily by surprise by her minion's boldness. Sure, she'd maybe suspected something (or maybe she's just fooling herself into thinking that - this is Suzie we're talking about), but she figured Marina was far too subservient a minion to ever actually express her desires. She leans back, eyeing her minion thoughtfully as she considers her response.

    And it takes a minute, for once not out of any desire to make her minion squirm, but genuinely taking a while to think this through. Everything was so much easier as a kraken. Any squirming it causes in Marina would still be nice though.

    "Well then, Marina." Suzie pauses for a moment to let that sink in. Rare is the occasion where she actually uses her minion's name. "If you truly wish to be more than just a minion to me, then you know what you have to do, don't you?" She asks, smiling softly, with just a hint of sinister intent to it. "You'll have to think of some way to really earn my attention, and keep it." The sinister edge vanishes as she leans forward again, "And that was not a bad start." She admits, faintly acknowledging that it was quite impressive for Marina to have the nerve to say that.

It opens locks even though it doesn’t fit, it cuts even thought it’s almost blunt, and it works like a wand even though I’m a custom-made organism without any intended casting ability.” He was going to say magic but he doesn’t think that’s true. He’s fairly sure some of his systems are magic. The Ethereal’s technical jargon did not convince him otherwise.

    Sam notices the look of recognition she seems to have, and the sense of derision. ”Kathy, aliens made me by copying original-me’s brain into a giant pig-dude body that can stick to walls and I’m best friends with bubbly vampire who constantly gushes about visiting a world populated by cars. My first sword was forged in the furnace of a young star and its creator named it Steve. My life is a constantly growing trainwreck of weirdness.”

    ”Well. I admit I’m not really an out-on-the-town kind of guy, so most of what I do for fun is a pretty long ways off. But I’m your man if your definition of having fun involves cheesecake.” Because he really had been prepping to make some of that for ages.
    ”I do the shooting stuff sometimes but I’m rusty. Hasn’t felt the same since I lost my fancy gauntlets.” Judging from the mech has figures that she probably likes shooting stuff.

    Kathy leans in towards Sam, a startling look of intensity in her eyes, both natural and bionic. One can even hear the whirring of little gears inside her left eye as she looks at Sam with deadly, laser focus.

    "You make Cheesecake?"

    It's an anxious minute for Marina, though not in the least because of the implied threat of death - Marina would never truly believe her lady would have her killed. Besides, there's so many other, far worse possibilities. Y'know, like being kicked out with nothing to her name, never to see the woman she adores so much ever again. The very thought makes her shudder.

    Hanging on to every word as Suzie finally speaks, Marina nods attentively, cheeks starting to glow with an awkward glance. Partly from fangirling over that praise and being addressed in such an intimate way, and partly because of the implications she reads into those words. Still, there's something that holds her back from sheer excitement.

    "E-earn your.... You- you don't mean right now, do you? Y-y'know, um, right here?" Marina stutters, eyes glancing about to emphasize all the people around them. "But... well, before we even, er, contemplate that... er, when I say I want to be more than just another minion to you, I... I really mean it." She squirms a little. "Suzie, I- I don't want this to be just a one-way thing. I don't want to just be another fling for you to- to enjoy and discard." She looks up to meet her gaze. "Can you promise me this?"

    [Splash Landing]

    Suzie leans back and crosses her legs, the heel of one boot "accidentally" bumping against Marina for just a moment before she adjusts herself, resting her chin on one tentacle thoughtfully as she stares at her loyal fishmaid.

    Poor thing, she's completely misunderstood.

    But it's ever so tempting to let this little misunderstanding of hers continue for another moment or two.

    "Oh Minion, I'm sure you don't need to worry about that. Just because those other minions that tried to earn my attention couldn't perform under pressure with legions of my followers watching, I'm sure you'd manage just fine, wouldn't you? Even if I did say you had to earn my attention right here, right now." She whispers those last few words, grinning malevolently.

    Suzie pauses, watching, enjoying every little bit of hesitancy in Marina it causes...then her smile softens, she sets a tentacle-full of money down the table, and slips round beside Marina, setting one tentacle on her chair and offering her a helping tentacle up with another. "Poor Minion, I think you misunderstand a little. None of them ever made it to any sort of fling stage. No, it is just the way things must be for a kraken. When krakens wish to mate, they must earn each other's respect. Usually through violence. But I wouldn't encourage that approach from you. No, you must think of another way of proving yourself worthy. I'm sure you'll rise to the challenge, and when you do, you can be sure I won't just discard you out of hand." She lets another tentacle slip around Marina's waist, chuckling, "But now that you've made your interest clear, you can expect to be teased a little more than usual in the meantime."
    Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticise them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Maidliest Catch

    Marina's face turns bright with embarrassment as her mistress leers at her from across the table, squirming awkwardly. W-well I'm- I'm not sure, it's - I mean, I feel I could perform, but it's not - that is, I'm not the most proficient in, er, that.... She stutters ineffectually, far too engulfed in such anxieties to notice the change in Suzie's demeanor until the kraken places a tentacle upon her chair, causing her to look up with a start before awkwardly accepting her mistress's help.

    "Ah, I... er, apologies for my misunderstanding, milady." She continues to avoid the kraken's gaze, but a warm little smile creeps into her lips as Suzie wraps a tentacle around her. "If it is what you demand, then I shall prove myself worthy of your affection, assuming it is within my capabilities." She affirms her resolution with a newfound confidence, trying her best to adopt a businesslike tone despite being so flustered.
