Evelyn blushed, both at a compliment that must've been sincere for Ness to say it at all, and at something she couldn't identify in Ness' tone. She wasn't sure why it made her stomach feel like it was sweating on the inside but it was a weird nervous feeling that she didn't have a word for and that's all she knew. But then Ness leaned over the table and seemed very close and Evelyn's stomach seemed like it was experiencing some sort of weird fire dance ritual and her face felt hot and she wanted to cry. Why was life so painfully confusing?

"I wanna start with the easy part," Evelyn managed. "That way we can sort of...tip toe our way into this mess. And also so that when we finish the really hard stuff, we can just sit down and cry and drink root beer floats or something." Evelyn had never been one to swear much but she suddenly wanted to swear a lot.

"And yeah, that sounds good. I just don't know which one is the easy letter. Maybe the one to my father is easier. Then I know the main points before we dive into how I feel about all of it since I mostly just feel terrible." Evelyn frowned up at Ness and wondered how the Aladren knew how to do this. Maybe the McLeod foundation had just helped a bunch of really messed up people?

"You sure you don't mind me coming over for Christmas break? I don't want to... I don't know. I don't want to be a burden. What if your family doesn't like me and they're disappointed in your choice of friends...?" At least she was pretty sure that they were actually friends. She tipped her head and leaned miserably on Ness' closest arm, hoping beyond all hope that that was okay.

"I'm sorry," she mumbled. "Is this fine?"

She waited for some sort of angry reaction or outburst of disgust and closed her eyes tightly.

    Evelyn liked Ness’ brains. Admired them. Ness’ brains were being admired and appreciated by another human being. A really cute human being. “Thank you,” the Aladren replied, clearly very touched. It... more

        "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

            People with low self-esteem were definitely a thing Ness had encountered before. The kinds of people who ended up running away from home usually had someone to run from, and that could leave its... more

              Evelyn laughed, surprised, when Ness swore. It was something she hadn't expected from the usually well-mannered Aladren, and she grinned at her friend for a moment. Then her thoughts went back to... more
