Re: Well...

Ya know (and I understand I'm late coming to this), I parsed it for the meaning she pretty much intended, despite knowing full well what 'sharing a bed' often means. 'Course, I'm asexual, so that might have something to do with it. :)

Re: Well...

Oh, good. I was hoping it would work from that perspective. This feedback is very useful.

Two factors at play here:

1) I was deliberately playing against the presupposition that sharing a bed equates to sexual intercourse.

2) They pretty much had to share. Elan didn't have a blanket and couldn't afford a bed of his own. Hope wasn't willing to leave him in the lurch.
