I suspect Aladrens
Sun Nov 6, 2016 01:36

Kellen was glad that he could at least make Farrah laugh a little. He thought she had a pretty smile, and it was definitely preferable to tears.

"I know what you mean. It's always awkward when you have to work with someone you don't really know. Like, we have a reputation to uphold as Aladren, or it feels like we do. So when you get paired with someone random, there's this weird pressure to have the right answers, and not screw up. And on the same token, because we're supposed to be brilliant, it's a little hurtful to not get picked, like there's something wrong with you. I don't know if any of that makes sense. That's just how I feel anyway." Kellen said with a shrug as he started towards the Defense Against the Dark Arts Class with Farrah on his arm.

"I just hope you know, that I'll always work with you, if it's possible, you know? You worked with me back when I didn't know anyone. It's the least I can do. Plus, I kind of like you." As soon as the words left his mouth, Kellen felt his ears turn red. He knew that it could be taken in a direction that he didn't necessarily mean it, but he also didn't not mean it. He DID like Farrah, she was a really good friend. She was kind, caring, smart, and nerdy. All the things he could ever want in someone, but they were 12. It wasn't like he could take it back either. He never wanted her to feel disliked either. Instead, he decided to just let it hang out there, and hopped for the best.

  • Does anyone ever want to?Farrah , Sat Nov 5 21:29
    Farrah gave him a skeptical look. She knew as well as anyone else that no Aladren would ever be okay with having detention, even if it were for a good reason like helping a friend. Besides, Farrah... more

      • You're probably rightFarrah, Sun Nov 6 07:34
        Farrah nodded along to what Kellen was saying. She didn't specifically have that fear or pressure when working with someone. Her pressure was more along the lines of 'don't make a fool of yourself'... more

          Kellen was shocked. Farrah had been picked on at her last school? That didn’t make any sense to him. He’d been teased because of his generally gaunt appearance. His ears were too big, his eyes were... more

            Farrah had a pleasant bubble in the pit of her stomach when Kellen verbalized his sincerity regarding her past issues with bullying. She didn’t really know why she had such a pleasant feeling from... more
            • Here are more truths for you...Kellen, Sun Nov 6 16:24
              Farrah’s comment made Kellen’s ears redden almost instantly. He’d always tried to keep his hair a little on the longer side in order to hide them, so it was weird to have them complimented. “Thanks?” ... more

                “Yeah, she can be really scary sometimes.” Farrah agreed. “Imagine having to share a room with her!” Farrah added, showing comradery with him. “If you ever go missing suddenly, I’ll know to check all ... more

                  “I don’t think I could sleep.” Kellen said, seriousness in his voice. “Then again, you didn’t tell her she was a horrible person with a huge ego, so I think you’re pretty safe.” A smile crossed his... more

                    Farrah laughed. "That's true. You did insult her, but I'm sure she probably agreed with it privately. And, at least you didn't insult her looks or clothes. I feel like that would be more of an issue... more

                      “Thanks for the advice. I’ll try and do better next time.” Kellen said in jest. He was sure there wouldn’t be a next time, at least he hoped there wouldn’t be. He felt like if he did stumble upon... more
