The idea of hikes is still nauseating to Eden. Being honest, she isn't any more used to the rocky terrains or the bones-deep exhaustion affiliated with these treks than she was a few months ago, back when Eleni first convinced her to come along. However, Eden has a plan and she intends to see it through now more than ever. It's fairly simple, nothing extravagant, geared to pull Eleni out of her own head long enough to distract herself a bit from reality and properly relax. The other week, movie night seemed to do wonders for her, and that private masseuse she'd paid to come around had also proven to be a good idea, but Eden was still of the belief that Eleni needed to get out more and get more fresh air. It wasn't good, being in St. Mungo's for as long as she has been recently. Eden doesn't blame her — she did the same with Valentina, after all — and if anything, it just reinforces her belief that Eleni needs this. So here she is. On a hike. By her own volition. Wow. The list of things she's willing to do for Eleni is truly remarkable, albeit very pathetic. She really needs to get a grip of herself; she's kind of concluded there's no way she's moving on any time soon like she thought she'd already done, and distance was a hard thing to put between them considering everything going wrong in Eleni's life, so the next best thing was to learn to control her feelings and hopefully put herself more out there. She's gone on two dates with two different people in the past few weeks — without telling Eleni, obviously. It feels... wrong, almost, to do it, nevermind tell the other woman about it. It's ridiculous, but listen: you try being irrevocably in love with your best friend for over a decade. It's not easy. But it's better than getting rejected a second time, or making Eleni feel pressured, so there is that. She's just focused on being a good friend, doing things good friends should do, like go on ridiculous hikes to get a spectacular view of the sunset while having a picnic. Yeah. Bestie vibes only. "So what ice cream flavors do you want to experiment with next?" she queries out of the blue, interrupting the comfortable silence as she peers over at Eleni with a spark of genuine curiosity in her eyes. It's a trivial question, yes, but that's kind of the point of this whole thing: pretend like your life isn't yours, stop worrying about everything for a few hours, just live a little bit without feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders.

Eleni wouldn't have been surprised if Eden had turned around to say Kaia had organised the past week or so under the argument that she wanted Eleni to leave St. Mungos. Supposed it might be a little weird, having your older sister suddenly being in your workplace on top of everything else. Suffocating, even. Nor was Eleni walking around with the best of attitudes. In fact, the only time Eleni seemed to have let go of the ever growing frown that she'd woken up with after labour was that movie night. Even then, it had been a gradual shift and the next day, when she was back in St. Mungos, the frown was back. She'd spent most of her time peering down at Euphadora. Not much else she could do. She could go visit Stephan but she couldn't bring herself too. She'd barely asked about him when she first woke up, just asking to see if he was alive, giving details of what had happened. Of what he did. Then she ignored him. She was still angry, maybe not that destructive anger as before, but it was there, bubbling at the base of her stomach every time she thought about him. There was one time she mentioned him on her own free will. It was four in the morning and she'd snuck out of her room to go visit her daughter. See her for the first time. Kaia eventually turned up. Who else would they send in to try and get Eleni Yaxley back into bed? Actually, Eleni could concede that the deputy could probably manage it but she's apparently disappeared. She'll worry about that later. If she dies, I won't forgive him. I won't ever forgive him. Then Stephan was back to being dead to her. Eden was smart not to have put any distance between her and Eleni. That would have been her snapping point. More than ever before, Eleni had been turning to Eden. Why? Eleni wasn't thinking about it anymore. At this point, it was barely a conscious decision. The only person she thinks to turn to now is Eden. The massage was nice, but she only went through it because Eden got them for her. At least it was easy for Eleni to get herself to nap, no matter what mindset she was in. It was also smart of Eden to not bring up the dates, Eleni would have snapped. Whereas before, she probably would have delved into an emotional depressive, this one would have been an angry type of snap. Jealous? Absolutely and all the other emotions she's going through right now would have seeped into it at the same time. Eden would have left to Eleni just glaring at her and snark galore. She knew had no right to do that, no right to say Eden wasn't allowed to date people. But...logic and reason would have been lost on her. At least, this time, Eleni wasn't as fit as she'd been the last time and was walking at a more reasonable pace and not rushing forward. The question about ice cream made her falter. "I...I have no idea," she confessed, tugging her sleeves over her knuckles. "I should pick it up again." The last time she even had ice cream was that movie night. "I was getting good at it. Maybe mint. Do you like mint?" Somewhere in the recesses of Eleni's mind something was recalling that it was Eden's favourite but she couldn't be sure. It might be someone else that Eleni was thinking about.

Eden knows Eleni like the back of her hand after nearly two decades of friendship, so when Eleni falters, Eden doesn't think to fret over her like Kaia probably would have. She cares for the other woman, but the idea of accidentally coming off as overbearing or asphyxiating keeps Eden respectfully at bay. The most she does is hesitantly extend a hand, offering a sliver of comfort for Eleni to take if she so wants. "The other gallons of milk went bad the other day," she informs Eleni, adopting a nonchalant intonation so to avoid guilting the other woman for it. "I realized when I tried to make you some honeycomb ice cream. I actually went down to buy some more so I could make it and bring it down to St. Mungo's, but after the third failed attempt, I kind of gave up on that mission. I don't have your magic hands, clearly," Eden confesses. She cracks another smile, this time more sepulchral. She truly wishes there were more she could do for Eleni. It might not be her place, but she detests seeing the forlorn expression on her face. When Eleni's question clicks, her expression smooths over, nodding enthusiastically. "You remembered! How touching," she teases, "You could do mango, too, if you want something more exotic."

The possessive side of Eleni wouldn't have minded if Eden started being overbearing. At least Eleni knows she has Eden paying attention to her and not someone else. Still, Eleni ended up taking the hand, intertwining her fingers into the other woman's without even thinking twice about it. The milk news made Eleni wince but the hands comment made it disappear. "So you admit my hands are magical? Delicate, even?" She asked, turning her head to grin at Eden. The first grin in what seemed like a while, but it was a cheshire grin, almost a taunting one. "I knew it. And of course I remembered. Why wouldn't I?" This was slightly a rhetorical question but a lot of the things that Eden told Eleni ended up staying in Eleni's mind. Even when they first reconnected, Eleni could easily bring up small little facts that she'd known about Eden during Hogwarts. Somehow, she'd refused to forget Eden. "But if it's mango, I'll be passing off a store bought one as my own. So you better go with it."

Eden's heart skips a beat when she registers the soft contact. The grin that comes to her face is fleeting, true, but it's also full of quiet adoration and reverence. When Eleni laces her fingers with hers, she squeezes with just enough pressure to indicate total support. "I said magical because you know how to work with ice cream. I never said delicate. I maintain that you haven't got a delicate bone in you," she tsks, shaking her head playfully. "Keep talking smack and looking at me like that, and I'll make sure the first thing I do when we get to the top is push you off the edge. See if your so-called delicate hands can break the fall." At the other remark, she barks out a loud laugh. "Me? Keeping a dirty secret of yours? What ever gave you the idea I'd do it, hm? What if I decide to tell Kaia?" she teases, laughing. "Kidding. My lips are sealed."

"They are synonymous," Elenei rebuked stubbornly, as she always is, "and if you tell Kaia even a whisper, I will be the one to push you off the cliff." They can go down together. "And my delicate hands can latch onto the cliff, easily. They're very handsy when they want to be," she said, not actually thinking through what she just said. Eleni would also like to see Eden try to push her off the cliff side. Eleni was fairly certain she wouldn't be able to do this. If Eleni stopped talking smack, she might have let herself realise that the warmth of Eden's hand in her own, that squeeze, eased her nerves. Eleni could already hear Kaia's reaction if she were to find out. "But thank you, I'm glad to know my secret is safe with you. No one ever has to know that I sometimes cut corners when necessary."

"They aren't. Pull out your phone and look up both definitions. I promise you you're going to realize they aren't." Eleni is stubborn, but so is Eden. She also scoffs, skeptical about what she's saying. "You wouldn't. Then who's going to set up movie nights and bring you out on hikes? It won't be Kaia. She'd rather die than go on hikes. Could be Hudson, but there's nobody like me anymore and you know it." She's talking a lot for someone who was rejected by the other woman, but she's not going to dwell on that anymore. Things change, even if the extent of Eleni's feelings probably haven't. "I mean, in the name of honesty, I'm pretty sure everyone knows as much already, but I'm honored you've decided to confide in me first. Now I have a bit more influence over the esteemed Minister for Magic of the United Kingdom. You fell right into my trap, Yaxley."

"It doesn't matter what my phone says, I am the minister of Magic and therefore what I say goes. Language is fickle and I can, and will, make it my bitch," Eleni said before making a face. Eden was right. Eden was the only person who was putting up with hikes. Actually, she could get Florian to come with her as long as she guilt trips first. "That's beside the point," she said, deciding not to concede or agree, "lets change topic." Again, Eleni was refusing to concede. At the notion of a trap, Eleni looked over at Eden again, raising an eyebrow. "Now who has a big head?" She asked, not dwelling on people realising her faults (minimal faults, anyway). Was it bad that her first thought was-would that trap be really that bad? God, Eleni needed to get a grip on herself. Not like Eden's into her anymore. Eleni missed her window and she wasn't going to think Eden had tortured herself and hadn't long moved on. "And what exactly are you going to do now that you have the Minister in your trap?" Yeah, Eleni was digging herself a hole here.

Eden has several conversations with several Department Heads, the Head Auror, and multiple Ministerial staff members that kind of indicate otherwise in that specific moment, but Eden decides against making her argument. She can't imagine Eleni's ego will like that, and she suspects it would convince her she needs to go back to work. Call Eden what you like — a pessimist, unfair, unreasonable — but she cares more about Eleni's wellbeing than her responsibilities to everyone else. Besides, Eden is more than happy to lend a helping hand to everyone on top of her judicial and legislative responsibilities. So long as nobody calls her out for being involved everywhere and starts some kind of she's trying to take over! conspiracy. She might cry then. "Not let go of you," she vows, sounding as serious and firm in her promise as she looks with her straight face and the resolute furrow of her brow. "It took us long enough to get to this point, y'know? For this level of trust to exist between us, or — however you want to call it, I guess." Eden feels uncharacteristically anxious in this moment, as a small, uncomfortably tight knot forms in her stomach. She doesn't know why she's feeling like that; she's been handling her feelings remarkably well for someone whose crush quite literally lives in her damn bedroom. "Someone has to watch out for you, and I can't think of a better way to use my influence than to make sure you actually watch out for yourself, too."

Eleni wouldn't. In fact, Eden was right on the money that Eleni might have made her grand return to the ministry a lot earlier than expected. However, the next response threw her off by a mile. A ball park, really. Something about the way she said it, on top of what she said, made her falter. God forbid, she felt like a child going through their first crush. She was almost tempted to withdraw her hand, just to calm her own damn emotions, but she didn't. It's funny, in a split second, she was forced to accept that she definitely wasn't feeling platonic emotions towards the woman beside her. Honestly? The thought terrified her. "And you? Who's making sure you're okay?" Eleni asked after a moment, her voice a lot softer than before, the teasing gone. "You'd tell me if your workload gets too much, right?" She asked. This was a common question since Eleni took personal leave. The idea of dumping her responsibilities onto someone else may as well be Eleni's boggart, let alone the someone being Eden. Eleni knew she couldn't complain about overworking but she couldn't bare the idea that Eden was overworking herself because of her. Eleni wasn't sure what was going to happen between them. Whether this was going to end peacefully or if this going to blow up in their faces. But maybe, just maybe, it was okay to enjoy the present without worrying about the future.

Eden shrugs, not sure how to really respond to her question. She doesn't have anyone. Not in any way that counts. She hasn't seen Julian in months, Vince has already reentered the dating world outside of his responsibilities towards Valentina, and Luka would rather be impaled than deal with emotions. Truth be told, all she has outside Eleni is Kaia, who she doesn't even want to burden with her feelings on top of everything else she already has going on. "My bed, expensive wine, and delicacies from that new bakery in Lincliff," she replies, a wry smile curving her lips slightly. "Honest?" Eden pauses for a moment, taking a good look at Eleni. She's trying to commit this moment to memory; the stillness of the afternoon, the softness of Eleni's expression, the golden hue that comes with the fast-approaching sunset. She wants to immortalize this private moment for as long as she can, because a part of her has already accepted that it's more than likely only a matter of time before some other blond-haired, blue-eyed bear comes to whisk Eleni away. She's the Minister for Magic, for crying out loud. Christ, it's going to hurt like a bitch when she has to get used to not waking up tangled up with Eleni again. "I probably wouldn't. I enjoy it, and you need the break. You've been working yourself to death, plus with your kids, and the proceedings with Hudson — if I can take something off your plate, I will. You can fight all you want, but I wasn't..." she pauses, trying to pick her words carefully. She doesn't want to give her the decidedly right impression. "When I said I can't think of a better way to use my influence than to make sure you actually take care of yourself, I really do mean it." Eden's walking slows to almost a complete stop, and she tugs on Eleni's hand, trying to get her to hang back for a few moments too. She sucks in a breath and smiles; it's small and tentative, but it's there and it expresses all the affection and fondness Eden feels towards her best friend. She lets go of her hand briefly in favor of invading her personal space and cupping her cheeks to force her to look at her. "Listen. I love you. You know that, right? There's nothing in this world I wouldn't do for you, and even if there were, this? This is honestly nothing. We're a team. You just sit back and be there for your kids, and I will handle everything related to the Ministry."

Eleni stared at Eden as she talked. This...yeah, this was hell. She clenched her teeth. What even were they? She had best friends before. They didn't talk like this. No best friend duo that she knew talked to each other like this. "Yeah," she said after a moment, forcing another smile onto her face. "Yeah, we're a team." Eleni almost looked like she was going to cry but nothing came from it. "We work together. Forever and ever. Balance each other out. Just...just don't feel like you have to do anything. If you get too stressed. I can still help out. You know it's returned, right? That I'd do anything. For you." God, she was awkward. Why was she being awkward? "You can't take care of me and forget to take care of yourself too." She nibbled on her lip before she began walking again, tugging Eden along, forcing them to keep walking. The burning of exercise can distract her from this. "I'm sorry. I know you don't think I have anything to apologise for but...I sort of threw you into the deep end with my family. When you've already...with Florence..." she took in a deep breathe. "We should call her," she blurted out. Yes, this was a good thing to do for Eden. As a way of showing her appreciation for the other woman. "See if she's ready to see you. Us. It'd be nice, seeing her again that is." Eleni was ranting at this point, trying to distract herself from her own overwhelming emotions that were threatening to push her into something she might regret. Like kissing her. The image had flashed through her mind and Eleni's cheeks had turned a slight shade of red.

The forever takes her aback. She wouldn't mind that, but it feels... forced, almost? She's getting the feeling Eleni feels a little uncomfortable, so she steps back, putting a bit of distance without having to let go of Eleni's hold on her hand. Maybe she overstepped? The thought worries her, and she bites the inside of her cheek harshly to avoid apologizing immediately. "Um... Florence is..." she trails off, confused by the sudden mention of her sister. Wasn't this gonna be a no-siblings-mentioned outing? What happened? "Sure? I, uh —" Eden frowns. She sees her flushed cheeks and misinterprets it, rubbing the nape of her neck awkwardly with her free hand. "I'm sorry if I came off too strong or something. I didn't want to — I didn't think — I —" Eden sighs, frustrated with her inability to get a damn sentence out. This isn't like her. This isn't like her at all and she hates it. "I'm sorry."

At the apology, Eleni stopped. Came to an abrupt stop and turned back to stare at Eden again. God, she fucked up again. She hurt Eden. She kept on hurting Eden. Why was she like this. "No, no, it's nothing you said. I promise. I just..." she trailed off, before staring down at their joined hands. "I don't think I really deserve you," she blurted out. Rip the band aid off. "You've been good to me. Too good for me. Especially after...you know, what happened the first time we saw each other. I know I wasn't...the nicest. I wasn't. I'm not very good with being surprised and I reacted badly and it all just..." she trailed off. She wasn't sure where she was going with this. "I don't think I ever really apologized and now you're putting up with me and being nice to me." She didn't mean to turn it onto this. God, she ruined the entire day, didn't she? Eden was going to want nothing to do with her after this. "Too nice." Her hand dropped Eden's and she rubbed her eyes with the bottom of her palm. Get ahold of yourself, not even Stephan would be fumbling this much. Actually, that was a lie. He'd be worse. Not even Florian would be fumbling this much. There we go, much better. "Sorry. Sorry. I just...you're too good for me."

Well that's one way to stomp all over Eden's heart. "No, I... I shouldn't have said any of it. I was rehashing old problems and bitter feelings, and it was kind of an asshole move on my part. I'd go as far as to call it a very weak attempt a homewrecking, but... it feels like a strong word, and it makes me feel even worse," she admits. "I wasn't being fair on you then, and —" Eden cuts herself off, putting another foot of distance between them. She tries to smile, but her eyes are watery and the laugh that follows is hollow at best. Knowing she's on the verge of totally falling apart, she shakes her head and swallows the lump in her throat. She glances away, looking at the pretty white shapes in the sky rather than Eleni's crestfallen expression. "I'm not being fair now either. Letting you sleep in my bed, letting you fill my drawers with your clothes, planning these weird, kind of romantic picnics for you to feel more relaxed, coming on stupid hikes even though I hate them because they make you happy and you make me happy, being —" No. Eden catches the slip-up before it's devastating, and she bites her bottom lip quickly to stop herself from saying anything else just as risky. Eden shakes her head again and does a full 360 slowly, running a hand through her sweaty strands of hair in an effort to recompose herself. "Fucking hell, Eleni, I'm not too good for you. For Christ's sake, I'm not even good enough for you! I wasn't when I was 16, I wasn't when I was 28, and I'm not now! That's — that's the problem, isn't it? I just..." Eden sucks in a breath, closing her eyes and shaking her head a third time. "I'm sorry. That outburst was not — it wasn't fair. Just... I'm not too good for you. I'm just as fucked up as you are, and that's why we work."

Her hands paused and she moved them so she could narrow her eyes at Eden's back. "Who said I'm fuck-" she cut herself off there. That was on instinct and it was not the best thing to say at this point. Eleni took what Eden was saying and was silent for a good few minutes after Eden finished. "Oh my god," Eleni said after a moment. Realising what Eden was saying, what she was saying underneath it. The second she said romantic, it all clicked. Kaia was going to laugh at her. She was going to laugh at the both of them. The second she thought of laughter, it began to spill out of her lips and she turned away, covering her mouth, and it was like a waterfall. Once it started, she couldn't stop it. The type of laughter that made her shoulders shake. Because oh my god, we're idiots. Everything started click into place. "You're a fool," she said after a moment, "we're both blind fools. And we're running this fucking country. Eden, can you believe that? We got voted in to be competent and we can barely see what's right in front of us," she said, choking on her own laughter. Then she calmed down. She forced herself to calm down. "Eden, you're one of the best things that ever happened to me." She stopped to stare at the other woman. Oh-what the hell. Eleni knew Eden wasn't going to-actually, she still might. Oh well, if Eden did, time to bother Kaia. With Stephan in a coma, there was no reasons on why Eleni shouldn't move in with her siblings. Eleni closed the distance, using her strength to pull Eden into the right position so she could press her lips onto Eden's. She didn't go further than that, almost pausing to see if Eden was going to push her away. "I don't...I don't want to go anywhere else, I don't want to leave your bed," Eleni whispered as she pulled back after a second, trying to wrap her head around what she just did. Was that a mistake?

Honestly, the laughter does more damage than it does good, and when Eden looks back at Eleni, she's evenly split between incredulous, hurt, and bemused. Why is she laughing at her? Is Eden's affections really something to laugh about? "You know, when someone tells you in very nice words that your self-deprecation is stupid and borderline offensive, the last thing you should do is start laughing," she snaps defensively; all the walls Eleni had managed to tear down are slowly being rebuilt and she isn't so sure there's anything she can do about that anymore. She didn't even confess any kind of feelings. What the hell is so amusing, and — Christ, why does it hurt so much more than the last rejection? This isn't even an outright rejection! Just a string of insults, apparently. Idiots? Eden doesn't know what's more offensive. She becomes so agitated that she interrupts the actual compliment without registering what she's actually saying or moving to do. "God! You're so fucking unbelieva- hmmph?" Oh. Oh. Eleni is kissing her. Eleni Yaxley is kissing her. The woman that's held her her heart hostage for nearly two decades is finally kissing her. Or at least trying to, but Eden's mouth hasn't caught up with her brain and it isn't until Eleni draws back that Eden steps forward, grabbing two fistfuls of Eleni's shirt and dragging her in to kiss her again, again and again, like she's dreamt of doing for so long.

"Oh, I'm the one whose self deprecation is stupid?" Eleni remarked just before Eden kissed her back and she could only kiss back for a moment before she smiled, breaking the kiss. But she kissed her again a second later. A few more times. THen she pulled back. "You know, most people think being called unbelievable is a compliment," Eleni remarked, "now about that romantic picnic?" With that, she turned on her heel and began the hike again. This time, though, there was a bit more energy to her step. Was she being a little shit? Absolutely, she knew this. Was she being a little shit for fun? Yes. She can't make it easy for Eden. "Come on, sweetheart, I want to see what you set up," she called over her shoulder as she picked up her pace. For that moment, all she was focused on was Eden and her. Not anything else that was happening in her life.

Eden wants to point out she's already faced rejection by Eleni, but wisely doesn't, not wanting to bring down the mood. "It's an insult and a compliment. Dual meaning." Eden hesitates. Romantic is an exaggerated descriptor, but Eleni is really honing in on it and refusing to let go of it. It kind of feels like the pressure on her has been amped up. What the hell are they? Friends, still? She did just enough as a friend, but should she have aimed for more? The dynamic is becoming increasingly complicated as she starts to overthink her actions, but before she can really immerse herself in self-doubt, Eleni is picking up speed and Eden is scrambling to follow her before she gets too far. "Still not someone that exercises a lot!" she calls after her, warning her. Well, at least she seems more energized now. Mission accomplished... sort of.

"If you want to date me, that'll probably be something that will change," Eleni responded, certain Eden would be able to catch up to her. Eleni wasn't going that fast. Just a little more...energy. Whilst everything was still there, at the back of her mind, it had been successfully pushed down. She'd been successfully distracted. Was she potentially getting ahead of herself here? Sure, maybe. But here's the thing–Eleni didn't do one night stands. Flings. If Eden kissed her back then you could be sure that Eleni was going to see it through. Friends with benefits? Please. Eleni didn't have the mental capacity of that grey area. "We're not that far off anyway!" Eleni didn't have a huge bar in terms of standards. The thought was enough. She was a little shit, though, and wasn't below making people go grey for her own short lived amusement.

"If I want to date you?" Eden echoes, quirking an eyebrow. Okay, so maybe she'd be lying if she said it didn't give her the butterflies just thinking about them actually together. "Well someone is feeling a litttle bold today. Kiss a girl once and you're already trying to go exclusive?" she laughs a little, "I guess it makes sense. You've only been sleeping in my bed and hogging the blankets for, what? Almost a year?" 9 months or so, but who's counting? Not Eden! No, that's just creepy. "Okay, okay, slow down a little, beautiful." Eden manages to catch Eleni's other hand, and it's enough to hold her back a little. "We're taking a tiny detour. I sort of lied about where we were really headed. We need to go off-path for a bit. Take a left here. I promise we won't get lost. I've been looking at maps and coming up to this place pretty regularly. Can you believe that?"
