Howl and Flora
I do!
Thu Oct 7, 2010 2:49pm

"Hi," Flora said, wondering how the girl - apparently called Kim - knew her name. More to the point, why was Howl looking at her like that? He hadn't said anything about Kim to her before... although, now she thought about it, she remembered him mentioning someone called Kim to Nat one day.
She kicked Howl under the table, and he jumped, seeming to have just been sat there in a world of his own.

Howl's shoulders slumped slightly as Kim put on that face again - the unfriendly one she'd started wearing a lot since the whole incident last year. He'd been hoping she would have lost it over the summer. He was about to say something, about to open his mouth, when she turned to his sister and started talking to her.

Flora laughed, maybe a little nervously at Kim. "No, our house didn't burn down," she said. "But next door's did. How did you know?" she was starting to wonder if they taught mind reading or something at Pitts'.
Howl knew that Kim had a habit of making weird things up, or asking weird questions though. It was just coincidence. Sort of, anyway.

  • You know meKim, Wed Oct 6 4:14pm
    She had sat down across the table from Howl, and the most she could do was blink. At first she just stared at him, wide-eyed, like a deer caught in the headlights. He seemed okay. He looked good.... more

      • Good! Then it won't be a surprise.Kim, Thu Oct 7 5:59pm
        Just as she was about to say, "Damnit, I got the wrong house," she caught the side of Howl's face out of the corner of her eye. He looked put-out at the whole thing, but really, it was an entire... more

          The scene next to her had started getting out of hand when Kim Baden had sat down. Madison Connor had turned to Reece and given him a look. That was Kim Baden, the look said, the girl who stabbed... more

            She just heard? What did that mean? Flora was disappointed that they didn't actually teach mind reading, and shrugged. "It was pretty bad," she said, before going back to her food. Howl stared at... more
            • Oh, my dear!Kim, Fri Oct 8 12:21pm
              Kim broke out into a grin without meaning to, her entire face flushing right after. He must have known she was just making it up, just to say something, but she'd made him laugh. She looked down at... more

                Kim Baden didn't look scary at all when she was trying not to laugh, Reece thought. So much for Madison Connor's promises - but he had to take what she said with a grain of salt, he remembered. The... more

                  Howl's face broke into a grin again when he saw Kim was grinning and trying not to laugh. She didn't look so like she had last term any more. Flora said nothing, because she didn't know who the... more
                  • I meant Howl, of course.Kim, Fri Oct 8 3:14pm
                    Howl's renewed grin was almost contagious enough to break down Kim's line of defense, but thankfully, Jael and Reece kept on with the conversation. Of course Grace wasn't marrying Mason. Mason was... more

                      Okay, now Reece knew for sure it was Kim Baden. He felt a little self-congratulatory for guessing, but there was no one there with whom to share his triumph. In a way he liked her wry sense of the... more
