Cooper had reached a bit of an impasse in her Secret Agent career. In order to progress, she needed to be doing a bunch of romantic interactions daily. With her husband Dianthus being busy so often, it just hadn’t been working out. So Coop decided it was time for them to talk.
Coop reminded Dia that diplomacy was a very large and important part of her career. (He knew.) And that in order for her to be capable and safe in any situation, she needed to be able to maintain control should the interaction venture into emotional territory — even romantic territory.
Dia didn’t say anything to this. Coop could tell he was experiencing some kind of inner turmoil imagining the implications of what she was telling him. He’ s a bit of an overthinker, her sweetie.
Dia took a(nother) moment to digest before answering.
Oh no, that’s not what Coop was saying! He can’t be serious, besides!
*sigh* What are we going to do with this boy?
So, our boy Dia finally gets it. And he’s risen to the challenge, devoting hours to researching “ways to spice up a long-term relationship.”
Even though they’d been together for years and years, wearing a bit more revealing PJs was excitingly awkward for Coop and Dia.
Okay, let’s be honest – it was awkward for Dia. What isn’t?
So.. How do you feel, guys?
