Merry and Dhiar met at a party that Chana took Dhiar to, and the two quickly became close. Dhiar accompanied Merry home, and he helped Merry to experience a number of new sensations.
Later, when Dhiar met Tomas, he introduced Merry to him. The two hit it off instantly and became involved, sharing Dhiar's expertise when a late-night trip to the natatorium became an orgy. When Dhiar departed for Berlin, Merry and Tomas continued to enjoy each other's company.
When Dhiar returned to their city, by the time he departed again, Merry and Tomas were decidedly together in a relationship.
