Ness McLeod
A moment of happiness
Sun Aug 5, 2018 00:44

The first night in the Aladren dorm had been… interesting. Ness was keen to get down to breakfast and find Evelyn. Yesterday already felt like such a long time ago - since then, there had been the trauma of Evelyn going to Pecari, and everything that had happened to her since, plus the fact that last night had been… interesting. It felt like they had a lot of catching up to do, plus Ness couldn’t wait to see the person who seemed to so easily understand everything.

It turned out, that getting as far as the Cascade Hall wasn’t even necessary. Ness had got up early, a combination of not quite being in the right timezone any more, and a desire not to spend longer than the minimum possible in the Room of Labelling and Offence. Passing through the library, which was necessary when exiting the Aladren Common Room, meant passing by a familiar blonde head, currently bent over a book. Ness smiled, heading over, and feeling more reassured than ever (not that there had really been any doubt) that Evelyn was a great person.

“Library before breakfast? I still really don’t understand how you didn’t end up in Aladren - how we didn’t end up roommates,” the last past came out slightly rushed at the end. But other people knew now and it didn’t seem fair if Evelyn didn’t. “I saw the person you were with making some kind of slime explosion,” Ness pulled a face, a mixture of sympathy and disgust, “Hope none of it got on you. How was your night?”

OOC - deliberately left the comments about Aladren dorm vague enough to cover a multitude of possibilities. It being the ‘Room of Labelling and Offence’ can easily refer to Ness’ dislike for the gendering of their rooms if nothing in particular comes up, or could end up referring to something more if it does.
