    Summary

    The silence after was thick with tension. It was Brienne who finally huffed and walked to the sideboard, filling a tumbler with ice and whiskey.

    After a large sip, she sighed. “I believe we have additional matters of breeding to discuss, gentlemen. Best get on with it.”

    Jaime was halfway through his own swallow; he choked until it burned.

    “Brienne!” Selwyn was red-faced. “That’s no way to start–”

    “Come on, Father. We’re all adults here.” She turned to Jaime, and for the first time he noticed her eyes. They were endless blue, the color of sunny, summer skies. He was held in their still certainty. “Mr. Jaime Lannister was caught by the housekeeper in bed with his married cousin, so his reputation is in shambles.” She had the gall to follow that statement with a gentle smile. “And while I might be the least coveted filly in this trade, I can offer him an out.”

    Summary

    “For this time only, you get a free demonstration. What’s the problem?”

     

    “She gave me three different types of damned bleach,” Jaime sighs. Brienne looks at them and at the ruined laundry – it’s not too bad of a mess after all, so she picks a medium-strength one. Then she heads for the detergents rack, grabs the right kind of soap and a box of fabric softener.

     

    “Here,” she says when she comes back. “Soap for whites, medium strength bleach, and put also some of this. If it fails and you have to put that stuff on just when you’re at home at least it should be comfortable to wear. And put it on sixty degrees, it’s plenty enough. For the dark stuff, there’s a specific cycle. For colors, not higher than forty. And never use bleach if there are no white clothes. Clear?”

     

    “Clear. If that PhD doesn’t work out for you, you have a future in explaining laundry to other people.”

     

    Or: in which they go to the same laundrette while living in the same campus.
