"I didn't think that anyone would take me seriously," Aster moaned, covered in pad thai sauce (sans the fish sauce for vegetarian friendliness).
"Hah," said VM, between licks, "It isn't that they took you seriously, it's that you gave them the idea in the first place. Never do that!" She put her hands on a rather sensitive place.
"But I couldn't help- aah!" Aster arced back, and moaned even more. "Stop talking, more licking!"
