Work Text:

Erik Killmonger looks up when she enters the room but doesn't look long.

"Egusi soup," Nakia tells him. "Made it myself."

He glares at her. "Tell T'Challa to take his soup and stick it..."

"I made it myself," she says again. When he doesn't answer she sets the bowl in front of him. "Eat or don't. You're the one who's been stabbed."

He stares at the bowl. Without looking up he says, "I could kill you."

She laughs. "You could try."

He relaxes at that. He looks long and hard at the bowl. And then, like a starving child, he eats.
