The supplies were all gathered on the beach, Firouz, Rongar and Doubar were just preparing the longboat with all the supplies whilst Maeve and Sinbad were off "getting food".

"I'm so sorry that you had to listen to my clone insult you like that"

"Oh Sinbad, that wasn't your fault, it wasn't as if it was you saying all those things" replied Maeve sweetly.

"And I'm sorry I put you through all that pain by having you watch me, well the other me, kiss Cassandra" he apologised again.

"Sinbad, you have to stop doing this, I know it wasn't you, it's ok"

"But why did you almost kiss Doubar?" he questioned. That was the only bit that was confusing him so far.

"I never did, when did you see us?" she asked.

"After I'd told you it wasn't me, and we split up to find food" he watched as her eyes grew to an alarming size.

"I thought he was you" she gulped. "It was your image I was talking to. God I'm glad I turned you down now" she laughed.

"You turned me down?" he asked, mock hurt showing. "How could you turn down this handsome face?"

"I'm not sure, what was I thinking?" she laughed.

"So you haven't been with Doubar" said Sinbad more seriously.

"No" laughed Maeve.

"And you weren't thinking of him when you kissed me?"

"For the ninth time, no" laughed Maeve. "I can barely think straight anyway when…never mind"

"I'm that good?" commented Sinbad with a twinkle in his eye.

"I don't know what to answer, I wouldn't want your head to get any bigger then it already is" she replied instead.

"I don't know if it could be any bigger anyway" laughed Sinbad. "But you really aren't seeing Doubar?"

"For the thirteenth time, no" she sighed. "I couldn't do that to you Sinbad, you know that"

"I know" he agreed. "And you know that I never think of you as a burden, and I don't ever want you to leave me again, don't you" he asked, stepping closer to her.

"I know" whispered Maeve, right before he lowered his lips down to meet hers until…

"Sinbad, Maeve, the longboat is ready" called Firouz; effectively breaking them out of whatever spell had been holding them.

"Damn Firouz" muttered Sinbad as they made their way back to the beach.

"So what have you two been up to, little brother?" smirked Doubar.

"Nothing" Sinbad sighed. "Absolutely, nothing"
