I certainly don't mind at all

Winston smiled in relief when he heard her introduction. A good family, then. This game was already paying off. He'd seen her in his classes but hadn't yet put names to all of the Aladren girls and was glad to have this name down at least.

"Ladies first," he insisted, as his father always told him was proper (somehow it was a lot easier to allow Kit Reid of the Connecticut Reids go first than it was to allow his little sister to, so the invitation wasn't even grudging like it usually was). And because he believed in good sportsmanship, too, he added, "Good luck."

  • Mind if I join?Kit Reid, Fri Nov 4 19:48
    Kit wanted to try everything and Archery was just another thing to try. She had never actually shot a bow and arrow before. In truth, she had never aimed at anything before. These sort of things were ... more

      • Good to hearKit, Fri Nov 4 20:31
        "Why, thank you," Kit said with a little bow, done for amusement. Standing with feet slightly apart, she pulled back the string as far as she could. She was fairly certain that she had the bullseye... more

          Winston bowed back, then took a step away to give her room to shoot. She . . . missed. "Thanks," he answered, knocking his arrow and raising it to point toward the target. He aimed (not at the... more
          • One question downKit, Fri Nov 4 21:07
            Kit wasn't completely surprised that he didn't miss, but she was surprised that he wasn't closer to the bullseye. Either way, she had a question to answer, one that she wasn't expecting. Yet, she was ... more
            • Next?Winston, Fri Nov 4 21:21
              He nodded in agreement with her as she answered his question, pleased that she seemed, at least to him, to be answering frankly, honestly, and with greater detail he'd expected. He liked it though,... more

                Kit was thrilled that he offered up information on their discussion. She noted that he liked chicken parm and barbecue. Though, she was surprised that his father made anything. She knew how to dine... more
                • That's a hard oneWinston, Sat Nov 5 14:07
                  Oddly, Kit's dismay at his miss made his own disappointment feel smaller. He still wasn't happy that his arrow had neatly sailed over top of the target entirely, but at least the commiseration eased... more
                  • How's this one?Kit, Sat Nov 5 19:06
                    Kit's favorite color was not blue, but she approved of Winston's choice of sky blue. "Good choice. I like when there are clouds and you see all the shapes they make." She did that sometimes at their... more

                      " Nice ," Winston congratulated when Kit hit their best shot so far. He lined up his arrow, and took his time aiming and setting his shot. He felt like he needed to show improvement, too. The arrow... more
