Thank you. That means a lot.

Evelyn's hug was a comfort as was her rubbing his back. It was an action that reminded him of something his mother did when he was upset and while it made him miss her more, it also soothed him and, in that moment, he was glad that he was with Evelyn. She seemed to understand, naturally, what he both wanted and needed and right now, what he both wanted and needed was Evelyn and Evelyn holding him and Evelyn being Evelyn.

He managed a weak and watery smile and a very slight laugh at her suggestion to 'steal' the food from the hall and he nodded as they made their way over the Pecari table. Was it really stealing if the food was meant for the Pecari students anyway? He began to load his plate with strawberries and found some yoghurt. They wouldn't be chocolate covered but as a second prize, it wasn't bad. His eyes did light up and spotting a stack of waffles and decided in that moment, that if they were truly going to steal food, they should do it properly and promptly swiped the whole stack along with a variety of toppings - such as whipped cream, maple syrup and jam and putting the bottles and jars into as many pockets of his clothes that he could. For a brief moment, the glimmer of mischief that was normally present in Malikhi's eye was back as he grinned at Evelyn. Her idea was perfect.

"Thank you for being so understanding," he told her. "This is exactly what I need."

With his plate piled high and his pockets full to bursting, he jerked his head in the direction of the doors to the hall. "Shall we go?"

    Evelyn's eyes widened in surprise. It seemed that Malikhi did indeed want her company, he just didn't want to have a birthday at all right now. Evelyn could understand that to some extent, and she... more

        Evelyn couldn't help laughing as she watched Malikhi load himself up with breakfast foods that could only really be called treats. She herself went for the sausages she'd noticed before, and she... more

          The Pecari common room was warm when they returned, a welcome contrast to the cooler weather outside. After setting his horde of food down on a nearby table, he immediately flopped onto one of the... more
          • Well, then.Evelyn Stones, Mon Sep 10 00:40
            Evelyn cocked her head, a curious smile asking all the questions she wouldn't dare put words to. Instead, she just chuckled and took a chomp out of the waffle as she could, letting Malikhi hold it up ... more
            • Now what?Malikhi Hill, Mon Sep 10 00:56
              Evelyn's blankets were as warm and as cozy as they looked and Malikhi felt swaddled in warmth as he wrapped one around his shoulders. He was a little disappointed that she wasn't sitting closer to... more

                Evelyn only had time to be mortified for half a second when Malikhi started laughing and she found herself drawn into the sound. It was almost impossible to be focused on any negative feeling when... more

                  Malikhi grinned widely at Evelyn and reached for the plate of waffles - going about offering them to her far more sensibly than she'd given him the sausages. He let her take however many she wanted... more

                    "If you win... you get my necklace!" she decided, pulling a leather cord out of the front of her robes. A carved wooden pendant featured the "om" symbol and she held it out for Malikhi to see. "It... more

                      It wasn't a hug and he didn't really understand her explanation but she mentioned something about her 'Pinguism' as he'd taken to calling it in his head but he smiled, accepting it as the stake. It... more
