The band?
Tue Oct 5, 2010 1:25pm

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 was different but he had simply thought she had done something different with her hair or something... who knew with girls. "Oh right. They look nice." He told her, honestly. He wondered how blind she was. "I have to wear some for reading."

...That was what burying yourself into books for escape did over the years. That and Asha, when he was younger, had accidentally lit the couch on fire in front of him. He was sure that had played in a damage to his eyes. He couldn't see properly for two years.

But at her question of his family he chewed his food giving her a curious look, unsure if she was joking or not, his eyebrows furrowed, though his mouth pressed into a smile which turned into a grin after he swallowed his food.

"You're kidding right?" How did she not know... he walked around with Sophie all of the time. Though... really it wasn't a stretch that she wouldn't know. He wasn't as well known as them. Plus they tended to ignore him around school. "Arlis, Seth and Sophie are my siblings." He shook his head and cast a glance in Arlis' direction quickly before turning back to Abby. "Arlis is only my half sister. I'm sure she's going to give me hell for fraternizing with the enemy." He rolled his eyes and dug his fork into his food, winding up the spaghetti.

    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

          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
            • ..... Sure? -confused-Jake, Wed Oct 6 5:21pm
              "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

                    Abby laughed at the story of his uncle. She probably shouldn't, having been raised with stories of how bad such a situation could be. "Seriously?" she asked, giggling again. "Yeah," she said. "From... more

                      He would have whistled. A big long one that people did when they were impressed with something, a cartoon whistle, but... he couldn't whistle. Never been able to, so instead he just raised his... more
