"She's not my girlfriend," said Ulysses. Then he looked at Nehra who was still evaluating her sip of coffee. "Just ignore him, okay? If you don't like it, I'll be more than happy to finish it." Nehra shook her head, and took a few more sips. "Coffee good." Both men laughed. "Well, that settles that! Lee, I think I'm going to head out and let you two finish waking up. " "Can we catch up with you later?" "Sure thing. I might stop by our favorite little playa bar. Probably where you'll find me if you take too long." Giles's tone insinuated a lot more than had actually happened between Ulysses and Nehra. "I think we'll be wandering soon ourselves," said Ulysses a little too quickly. "Suit yourself. Tah-tah," Giles said as he walked out onto the playa. "See ya." Ulysses turned his attention to Nehra who sat wide eyed with her shark-like grin. She giggled at him and bounced in her seat. "What's up?" said Ulysses with a grin of his own. "Coffee!" Was her enthusiastic response. + + + The pair did catch up with Giles at Ron and Sophie's bar camp, but they didn't stay long. Nehra turned down a sloe gin fizz and didn't seem to want to drink anything but water. She asked Ulysses for more coffee, which he managed to find for her in their post bar wandering, but the coffee seemed to only make her more restless. They had walked around for most of the day. Nehra was trying to tell him something, but he couldn't understand what. Ulysses figured all of this had to do with finding her camp. However, he was getting tired, and he needed to rest and eat something.
