"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 Evelyn wanted comfort, and they were getting overall more familiar with each other, hence moving up to doing alongside asking rather than before for gestures that were familiar-ish, safe-ish territory.

"And I'm sure. I mean, I wish it wasn't for such crappy reasons but I'm excited to take you home with me. You won't be a burden and my family will love you. They just... they wouldn't think like that about someone.

‌"Good plan with the letters. It sounds like you know what you're doing," Ness assured Evelyn. And Ness wasn't the kind of person who just said that.

Ness added, to show understanding of why, even with a solid plan in place, Evelyn was not putting quill to paper. Even when you knew what you were doing, it didn't mean the task was easy. Ness hoped that these were the right things to say. The McLeods may have helped people for a living but they didn't exactly have their children do more than file paperwork or help with fundraisers. Ness did not know how to be a counsellor. Still, being listened to by people who did whenever there was a problem had probably worn off to some extent, even if the overwhelming urge was still to try to fix rather than just listen.

        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
