The elf took the news as I expected her to... a hint of jealousy, a hint of indignance, but otherwise okay. In all honesty, I really don't know what I want out of this whole situation, and that seems to be what's bugging her the most. Companionship is nice, but in two more weeks I WILL form an emotional bond of some sort to M. It's pretty well inevitable with my personality and luck. And it doesn't sound like she's up for any kind of a long-distance thing.
I dunno... lot of things to figure out.
