Rex heard the voice, saw images moving around him suddenly... yet it seemed maybe they were all there. He wasn't sure. In the last 24 hours (his 24 hours, which may very well be an hour or two to everyone else), he realized he was at times moving at a different time-rate than... well, everybody. Sitting here for what seemed an hour, his coffee was still scolding hot... but very tasty.
"You"... he heard. He shook his head as if trying to stay awake, but it was more to snap out of the strange trance he felt himself in. "Ah yes, me... and there is the inquisitive one who always looks at me with those violet eyes which seem so warm yet also so skeptical of my sanity." On his feet in a quick leap, he bent forward very low, letting his smile, which is usually a grin but this time a genuinely happy smile, stretch wide across his face, "And how does the lovely Phaedra do this fine afternoon?"
Realizations... in the last few minutes... yet he is unsure if these were true minutes or what he thought of as minutes and outside the bubble which surrounds his mine, mere seconds... revealed to Rex that he had the slight ability to alter his 'speed' inside his surroundings. Yes, this 'shop'... he thought, does indeed have a special set of rules. Or at least it helped him realize a few of his own.
Pulling a chair from the table... Rex gestured... "Care to join me for a cup of java? It stays hot... forever, I have found", giving a cheeky grin this time.
