Author's Note: This is the Roger I RP with. Very little canon here and if Satine is out of character, Satine!mun can kick me and make me write it right.

Abra is very happy with leather padded piano benches. She snuggles up against Roger's hip, happy to draw warmth from him as music soars over her head. Roger is feeling quite in the classical mood, having progressed from Beethoven's Opus 2 to his present selection of Opus 10 Number 3, next to move to "Pathetique". He has been at it since he got home from a 24 hour meeting. His jaw had been clenched in aggravation and this is one of his few outlets. It's already mid-evening, but he doesn't feel tired. Not yet.

The front door clicks and Satine strolls in. He already knew she was home because he knew the Griffin had picked her up at the theatre. She kicks off her high heels, drawn in by the music, which she absently hums. Despite her background, she knows a lot of the music he plays when he really feels the need to unwind.

She snuggles against his side, still humming when Cat bumps her leg, demanding to be let up. She pats her lap and the cat leaps up, butting her head against her mistress' arm before claiming Satine's lap as her throne.

"Good day?" he asks casually as he moves to the "Pathetique".

"Could have been better," she sighs, putting an arm around his waist. He leans his head against hers, smelling cold cream and theatre make-up. Her eyes are a little blood-shot from dryness. However, she looks happy, a small smile gracing her kissable mouth. "I'm glad to be home."

He kisses that mouth, loving her warmth. It's still amazing after 10 years. "Do you want something to eat?"

She shakes her head, leaning her head on his shoulder as he continues to play. "Where are the kids?"

"Over at Snake's tonight. They were in a mood to be rambunctious, so they're off burning energy at his place. It's just us tonight."

She smiles a Cheshire cat smile. "Mmm, we should take advantage of the free time." Roger starts to take his fingers off the keys, but she presses them back gently. "In a few moments, cher. I just want to unwind a little." She goes back to humming as Roger moves to the next piece, letting the music soothe their souls.
