Evelyn liked Ness’ brains. Admired them. Ness’ brains were being admired and appreciated by another human being. A really cute human being.

“And I admire your problem solving abilities,” Ness returned, looking over the table, “So, what we’re talking is brief factual letter to your father, and a more personal letter to you mom?” It always helped to summarise. “So, either we do the one to your father first because it’s more straightforward, and then we can feel like one thing is checked off the list.

          "Yes," Ness assured Evelyn gently as the Pecari leant on the Aladren. "Is this?" Ness checked, wrapping one arm around Evelyn and gently stroking her hair with the other hand. Ness was pretty sure... more

            Evelyn wasn't sure if what Ness was doing was okay. She was pretty sure it was comforting and she appreciated the kindness the Aladren was showing. At the same time, she wasn't really used to so much ... more
