Malikhi Hill
Oh, is it my birthday? I hadn't realised.
Sat Sep 8, 2018 18:43

When Malikhi woke on the morning of his birthday, he was not filled with the positive feelings that he should've been. Instead, he would've much rather preferred to stay in his bed and ignore the day altogether but a grumble in his stomach told him that such a thing wouldn't be possible unless he wanted to starve.

The truth was, he was feeling massively homesick. He had never spent any birthday away from his parents, both of them always being there to celebrate the day with him. His mother would wake him up with the birthday song and carrying a tray for breakfast in bed, which was typically cake - the only time his mother let him get away with eating something dessert-like. After breakfast and getting dressed, Malikhi would bound down the stairs and his father would greet him with a hug and a smile and then the three of them as a family would do something together.

To spend his birthday at Sonora, without his family surrounding him, felt very strange.

So, tired from not having slept well due to his homesickness, he stumbled his way down the stairs and was very confused when he saw Evelyn, wearing a lot of blue, who then greeted him with a hug and a wide grin. He couldn't put two and two together as to why she was still in the common room and not downstairs for breakfast but he wasn't complaining - he liked it when Evelyn hugged him.

Instead of leaving the common room to proceed to Cascade Hall for breakfast, she was pulling him over to one of the sofas and askng him about wishes. His face twisted in confusion. At the moment, his only wish was for some kind of food. Malikhi didn't really feel human until he'd eaten and he wanted nothing more than some hot buttered toast and strawberry jam. However, that didn't seem to be the kind of wish that Evelyn was looking for. She'd specifically said birthday wish which seemed to make it sound extra special and, through his foggy and sleep-addled mind, he thought of something that he absolutely, definitely wanted to come true.

I wish Linney to be in my life forever...

He thought about this hard, putting all his feelings into it before nodding firmly at Evelyn. "I've got my wish. What's next?"
