Synopsis:  

Aging telepath Evil Overlord Xander has traded his youthful dream of joining the US military and using his superpowers to benefit humanity for over-the-hill cynicism, self-imposed exile on his private zoo-for-crazy-people Eynhallow Island, and a serious case of May-December midlife crisis.  And technically it's only kidnapping if she tries to leave.  or the fun version

They're good dancers. Kore explained where she got her dancing skill (an upbringing in "high society"), but who taught Xander?

What a dance... what a dance! But still tease and denial - from your side. Poor Xander.

I loved this dance, two talented people starting to reveal a bit more of themselves and turns out they can both dance.  tease tease tease.  :D

They move together so well ... just as if they planned their interactions simulatneously together.
Wait. Maybe they do ... at least on a subconscious level. Here they are a couple ... I want to hold on to this moment a while longer, though it probably can't last ...

perks of telepathy, not stepping on each other's toes.  Or perhaps they're just really good at this, like they're both really good at a bunch of other things, their strong suits run deep.  let's start the bidding with 4 NT shall we?  (sorry for the esoteric bridge ref)  anyways, this was a nice moment for them.  :)

Talking talents and suits and Major Arcana ... probably Xander would love to see himself as The Magician. But I strongly suspect he's rather The Fool.

indeed she does, but it involves a lot of tango lessons.  :D

Kissing is gross.

it's better if they brush their teeth.

I'm pretty sure that kissing is a thing that brain parasites make us do as part of their life cycle.

And yet the dance goes on.  I must admit I'm hooked on this story.

face the music and dance, to quote the phrase.   and another: piper's gotta be paid.

Goodness gracious, I love how simple this chapter was, just them dancing yet Xander is discovering and understanding Kore more and more just from such simple yet beautiful interactions like this [Cat Emote] Love

It's about time they had a nice moment where nobody got speared by any surprise sharp objects.  This chapter sequence is all about them laying the cards on the table, and I have been looking forward to it for a while :)
