"Cool!" He said in response to the fox thing. Being a fox would be a cool thing. He didn't even know what sort of form he would take on. Maybe, he thought, someday he would become a registered animagus. After graduation. Then maybe he could have something neat... finally something better than his siblings.

He helped himself to a huge spoonful of spagetti, practically inhaling it. He ate a lot. His Mom always told him he had two empty legs by the way he just shovelled food down all the time. He was still growing they said, though he hoped not. He found himself already a bit too tall. He felt like he intimidated people somehow. He'd stretched past Seth now, and was growing outward unlike his siblings. His shoulders were broadening out in a way he found unsettling. Asha told him, well visiting, that he should try out for a beater on the Quidditch team and he figured he could give it a shot... though he had a thing about being on brooms.

He watched as she stabbed her fork at nothing and he couldn't help but smile, laughing faintly.

"My summer was awful." He told her honestly, rolling his eyes, though playfully. It wasn't that bad... in that it was just as bad as usual. "My family is kind of crazy. But I suppose you know that already."

He shovelled more food in and looked around the room absentmindedly before settling back on her after swallowing. Hastily he wiped his face with his napkin. "How was yours?"

    Abby was speechless. Something quite unusual for her under any circumstances. Had he just congratulated her? Jake? "Thanks," she said, though her tongue stumbled over it so badly it was more or less... more

        While Jake seemed to be fine eating, Abby didn't to much than tear apart her roast into bite sized pieces and take the occasional sampling of her potatoes. She usual had a pretty good appetite, but... more

          Jake hadn't actually noticed the glasses until she mentioned them, and now he noticed them. They somehow made her eyes more pronounced. He had thought, upon sitting across from her, that something... more

            He said her glasses looked nice! She took a bite to keep from giving away the absolute glee that was running through her veins right now. She was SOOO glad they weren't coke bottle glasses. They did... more

              Judging by her shock, he figured it was safe to assume she didnít know Arlis was his sister. Hm. He wondered how many people didnít know that. How many people probably thought he was just some guy... more

                It was interesting hearing him talk about his siblings. Realistic, she supposed. Arlis was definitely overwhelming. Abby despised her for what she did last year. After the summer she realized that it ... more

                  "Cool." He figured it must be awesome to only have one sibling. Only one sibling to worry about. For a moment he mused over which one he would like to keep, and settled on either Asha or Sophie.... more

                    Abby's breath caught when he leaned in. Her hair had fallen in front of her shoulders and she was frozen even when he leaned back again. Her lips twitched at the corners when he acted impressed. And... more
