Sinead glanced back at Tanis, a smile on her lips. Though she didn't want to outright agree with Tanis' statement, she didn't find it to be far off.
"All White juries do not have anybody to hold them accountable," Avi said, both his voice and words more objective on the matter. He was very aware of both Tanis' and Sinead's opinions on the matter, but he didn't find either to be productive for their case. "Even just a non-White juror can make a difference in the ruling, though I wouldn't count on a fair trial if we can't get a majority in the jury."
Sinead, knowing her husband was right, returned to the dishes at hand. She was, however, left pleased by the general consensus of the room.
At that, the silence of the room was filled with the single ring of their wall mounted house phone. Sinead had moved to reach for it, before it clicked, and the second ring was heard from the connected phone in Avi's office. Sinead and Avi exchanged a glance.
"Excuse me," Avi said, knowing the number dialed was his working number and not their private home number. Standing and removing the napkin from his lap, Avi disappeared off further into the house
"Warhol," Sinead head him answer, and then moments later the inevitable follow up no, this is he of someone calling asking for Shabwarhal.
Thoughtlessly, Sinead's eyes had followed Avi's exit, and was now lingering at the empty doorway, dishcloth still in hand.

Tanis really wasn’t good at al that serious talk, she was counting on Avi for stuff like that, so she was a little relieved when the phone started ringing and Avi went to get it. She didn’t want to think about her trial at all, yet Avi seemed absolutely hellbent on getting her to think and make decisions that she knew nothing about. It was exhausting.
Silence filled the kitchen once more, only broken by the soft sound of Avi’s voice in his office, his voice muffed enough to make it impossible to pick up what he was actually talking about.
“He’s a popular guy today, huh?” She asked, mostly just to have something to talk about and to distract herself with.

Sinead didn't immediately respond to Tanis' comment, still trying to follow along the conversation cross the house. When Avi foiled that by closing the office door with a how did you get this number, Sinead finally sighed and returned to her undertaking.
"Saturdays tend to be like this, yeah," she just answered, absentmindedly as she tossed the dishtowel aside on the counter. Her movements weren't harsh but she was almost certain she could tell where this morning was heading. "People arrested Friday evening's dont get to call a lawyer before the morning."
Not wanting Tanis to worry, Sinead sent her a smile.

Tanis hummed at that, knowing all about calling her lawyer on a Saturday, hoping against hope that he would be able to help. She still wasn’t sure how much he was going to be able to help her, but she still appreciated every single thing Avi was doing for her.
“He’s a good man,” she stated, fully able to pick up on the fact that Sinead seemed uneasy about the entire thing. She didn’t know if her comments were in any way soothing or calming, she had never reall been good at comforting people, but she felt that she had to at least give it a try. “You are very lucky. Not a lot of men are like him.”

"I know," Sinead answered, the response soft and vaguely directed at all three of Tanis' comments. The fact that Tanis noticed too almost made Sinead choke up with pride, yet again feeling beyond blessed to have Avi in her life. Yet again, she spoke without specifying what she was answering. "You don't know half of it."
She didn't allow either of them to linger on her comment, for now wishing to keep some parts of her marriage private. Sinead was thrilled about Tanis' presence and the work Avi was doing for her, but Sinead had to actively remind herself that the woman in front of her was still practically a stranger.
As she returned to the kitchen table to clear some of the plates. Her smile was actively brighter now, needing to keep herself from reminiscing. "Are you finished? I doubt he'll come back to finish his."
Right enough, Avi's door once again opened, and Sinead heard him move to their bedroom.
"Tanis, I'm sorry I -" his words broke off as he continued speaking into their closet, rummaging through hanged shirts. "- It shouldn't take long, I just need to present at the station as his lawyer -"

“I’m all done,” Tanis responded, having only just barely managed to finish her sentence, before Avi burst back into the kitchen, looking more frazzled than Tanis believed that she had ever seen him before. She only vaguely caught what he was talking about, but she really thought that it was admirable that Avi was rushing out on his day off to help someone, something she had been on the receiving end of before, so she couldn’t really be angry about it.
“It’s alright. You just take your time,” she stated, not sure why she would even say that. She didn’t want to impose on Sinead after all, but it didn’t seem to register to Avi that she might be any kind of inconvenience.

Avi, not being in any position to make the call, looked over at Sinead for a response. He was still buttoning up his freshly donned shirt, though all he had done was to put it on on top of his cotton shirt.
Sinead in turn looked surprised to even be involved, and, startled, just barely formed an, "It's no problem at all, she can stay for as long as you need."
It only took a fraction of a second for her to fully process her own words. To that, she turned towards Tanis, seemingly embarrassed about having talked about Tanis in third person. Wanting to take a moment to reassure her, Sinead added a softer, "You're not imposing, love."
Avi didn't seem to hear past no problem, before he once again ducked out of the kitchen in search for a briefcase. When he reappeared, he had also put on a suit jacket.
"I'll be back as soon as I can. I apologize, I love you." The ambiguity of rushed phrasing of Avi's goodbye made Sinead smile, but before she got a change to reply, Avi had already disappeared from the doorway and, moments later, excited through their front door.

It was only when Avi actually left the house that Tanis realised what she had just agreed to. Sure, Sinead seemed like a nice woman and Tanis had enjoyed spending time with her in the past, yet they had never spent this much time together before and that worried Tanis.
She felt like she had to say something, anything really, but kept coming up short. She really had no idea how to even start a conversation with Sinead and she felt terrible about that.
She had half a mind to ask Sinead if she needed any help in the kitchen, but she quickly realised that she was all but done, so it seemed completely pointless.
“I hope it isn’t anything too serious.”

Sinead had been deep in her own thoughts when Tanis’ spoke; the sudden end to the silence made Sinead's eyes dart back to the woman still seated where both Avi and herself had left her.
"It usually isn't," Sinead answered, hoping that to be of comfort in case Tanis sat worrying. "Avi's not a criminal law attorney, so he usually refers big ticket items to another pro bono friend of his."
Though her words had left Sinead with a small, polite smile, silence once again fell around her. She didn't mind Tanis stay, but mentally, she was reviewing the day she had planned for herself, and she was trying to decide which of those could be of some interest to Tanis.
"How are you feeling, Tanis? You came directly from work, didn’t you?" she instead asked, almost suddenly. Her eyes once again refocused on their guest, and though her smile disappeared in favor for a look of worry, her expression became more genuine overall. "Do you want to use our spare bedroom? Now that you have some time on your hands?"

Tanis felt a little sheepish about the offer, figuring that it meant that she probably looked tired. Sure, she was tired, but she didn’t just want to sleep away while Sinead was busy doing housework. She felt like she imposed enough, even if Sinead kept saying that she didn’t.
“Thanks for the offer, but I’m good. I’m used to just keep going,” she stated with a kind smile, softly trailing an ore in the wood of the table with her finger, not looking directly at Sinead.
“Feel free to put men to work though. Anything you need done, I will gladly help”

Sinead lingered for a moment at the counter before, almost gingerly, joining Tanis at the table. Part of her realized her distance was only putting an awkwardness into their conversation, but the fact that Tanis' didn't meet her eye was strangely intimidating.
Once having taken the seat across from Tanis, which Avi had recently left empty, Sinead couldn't help but smile, softly and almost impulsively.
"It's Saturday morning, Tanis, I don't intend on putting either of us to work." Sinead said, with a careful joke, as she leaned forward to try and catch Tanis' line of sight. She paused for a moment, allowing herself to look at the other woman with a smile still on her lips. "Do you want another cup of coffee, and we can figure out what we want to do with our day?"
