 "Hey Sages. Got a couple questions today. I've been shopping and trying to find something special for the woman I love.  So far I've found this or this. She's got a lovely neck, so I think the second one would suit her but I also found out recently that she plays piano beautifully. It doesn't have to be either of these things... but what would YOU buy as a gift for a significant other?"

"My other question is less frivolous. If your parents thought you were dead and had thought so for three years, would you let them know you're alive? Even though they may have come to grips with it and gotten past the grief? I met Eliza's family and it really makes me miss my own and I wish they could meet the beautiful woman I've got in my life now."

"I am not the best aesthetic judge, and I do not give my wife jewelry often, but attention to her interests may be appreciated in the first one."

His expression darkens at the second part.
"...One never gets over losing family."

"So you don't think it would be unfair of me to just show up and say "Hi, I know you've thought I was dead the last three years but I'm really alive. I was touched that you were so sad at my funeral...."

Kristoff fidgets with adjusting his gauntlets. They don't even need recalibrating, but he needs something to focus on at the moment.
"...I am trying to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you had a good reason for putting them through that. But if you don't think their insides turn cold every time the anniversary of your 'death' approaches, or they hear anything even remotely connected to what they think killed you, or ..." Kristoff gets a hold of himself. "Let me assure you, sir, one does not simply get over it in three years. Nor twenty-three. You would deny them the rest of their lives having contact with you to spare the momentary discomfort?"

"I didn't. The government did. They assured me it was for the best that they thought I was gone. I'm starting to think that they were wrong. If anyone in the office knew I let them know I'm alive and jeopardized the program.. I don't know what they'd do but I'm sure my parents could keep it a secret.. you know, carry on the charade that I'm still dead."

"Thank you for the clarification. I thought you were saying the circumstances taht made it necessary were gone and you were simply unsure about the awkward conversation. A legal issue is more serious, but if you believe they can handle the discretion, I think it is worth the risk."

"Yeah, sorry. I didn't think to go into all the gory little details of the clusterf**k that is parts of my life. I'll have to give it some thought. I miss them more and more all the time and after meeting Eliza's family.. you know, it's just harder."

"Understandable." Family's just a bit of a sensitive topic with Kristoff.

"I would say go with the one that goes with her interest." She smiles.

"And I thought my father was dead for a hundred and thirty years. I never got over it. I say go and see them."

"Then I say go with that one. Or both! You can never give a girl too much jewelry."

She chuckles. "Thank you. I get that a lot. I'm actually a hundred and fifty-one. It's the night cream." She smirks.

"True. I just don't want to over-do it and make her think I'm trying to buy her love. I've never felt like this about someone before."

"Okay there's NO way any cream could do that."

Amaya smiles. "Awww! Well, I doubt two pieces of jewelry would make her think that. Now, if you bought her a whole jewelry store, yeah..that probably would."

"You sure? The cream I use at night is pretty amazing." she teases.

"You might be right. I already bought them both. I might just not take either of them back."

He smirks. "I'm pretty sure." But what could explain someone aging so well?

"If you give her both, I'm sure she'll be more than happy and you'll probably get a big 'ol hug."

She returns the smirk. "Well, you're right. I'm not human, hun. I'm a fae. The cream does do wonders for my skin though. Not one wrinkle."

"I'll get old. At some point. It isn't as nice as you would think though. Watching the people around you age and then pass away. At least you can grow old with the person you love." Morbid much, Amaya?

"Oh no no... Her mom is attractive for her age. I just meant that since they share the genes and look a lot alike that Eliza will probably age well. Her personality makes me love her, the fact that she's the most perfectly beautiful creature ever created is just a bonus."

It depends on the person and that person's interests.

I let my sister think I was dead for a long time, thinking she'd be better off, but later I did reveal myself to her. She was a bit angry about the deception at first, but she loves me and quickly forgave me. I'm glad to have her back in my life. Family is important.

"Why did you let her think you were dead? Your own decision or forced on you?"

The same night our parents were killed, she was struck by a car and put into a coma. Hospital care for her was very expensive, and I had to take a somewhat illegal job to pay for it. As a cover, the organization that employed me found a way to make me legally dead. I'm not proud of some of the things I had to do, and it changed me. When she came out of her coma years later it seemed better to let her live a normal life instead of drawing her into the dangerous, shadowy world of mine. The organization I worked for encouraged me to let her go, for her own good.

Thanks. It was a hard time, but I achieved what I hoped for: bringing my parents' murderer to justice and keeping my sister on life support until she was awake and able to care for herself.

"I don't have any siblings. If I did, I think it would drive me crazy seeing them in a coma. I JUST met my girlfriend's sister and she's amazing."

She was in a coma for years. I was never sure that she'd ever come out of it, though I hoped so hard that she would. It was very hard for me to deal with.
