Super cool

“I’m glad you think so!” Ayla said cheerfully. Admittedly, she’d only had a hand in a portion of the baking, but she was pretty proud of her achievements, even if her icing piping needed more work. “I helped bake the pumpkin ones. With the cream cheese frosting and the little pumpkin candies on top. So, if you haven’t had one, I recommend them. Unless you hate pumpkin, or cream cheese. And if they are horrible, I’ll deny I had anything to do with them.” She said with a dimpled smile. She wasn’t sure if it was because of the party, all the sugar she’d ingested that night, or being around Victor, but Ayla was really happy. She suspected it was a combination.

“I didn’t help with decorating, as I was busy baking and helping set up the fundraising booth earlier, but I’m in the group that did! My spirit squad responsibility tonight is to help clean up afterward.” She said with a shrug. Someday she hoped to be the brains behind something as cool as the Halloween party, since throwing successful gatherings was one of those skills that a society lady needed to have. Until then, she was content to be a minion and help wherever she was needed.

She was having a hard time restraining herself. It often happened when she was really excited or happy, she tended to ramble and ask a lot of rapid fire questions. Her mother had tried to break her of the habit, but on occasion she still slipped. It wasn't like mother was around to police her anyway. Ayla bit her bottom lip as she considered to ask about Victor's costume. Being nosey wasn't ladylike, but she considered him a friend, so she felt comfortable letting herself go a little. Maybe that was bad form, but they were kids in costumes at a Halloween party. She could be a proper lady tomorrow.

"So why a prince? And, is the sword real?" She asked with curious smile.

  • You could even say it's 'cool'!Victor, Sun Nov 6 03:41
    Ayla’s costume really was great, and part of Victor was now wishing that his costume could have included face paint. However, he did have a sword, a fact that didn’t seem likely to lose its charm... more

        “I haven’t had one of the pumpkin cakes yet, but they’ll be the next thing I eat!” promised Victor. He had no dislikes when it came to food, and the pumpkin cakes really did sound yummy! “I can help... more

          Ayla bit her bottom lip, trying to stifle some of her enthusiasm when Victor said he’d try one of her cupcakes next. It was sweet of him to say, though she expected that he wouldn’t necessarily... more

            “Of course I would,” assured Victor, now very glad that he’d rashly offered to help Ayla. He liked the idea of reaching things for the smaller girl, and just generally being needed. Forget the other... more

              Was it hot in the MARS room? It certainly felt that way to Ayla. So many things were running through her head, and the feelings...she couldn’t even begin to comprehend the feelings. Her cheeks were... more

                Normally, Victor would hate to be called sweet. It was the obnoxious sort of term used by elderly aunts who pinched your cheeks, and the very thought of it made him shudder. However, when Ayla used... more

                  Ayla happily took Victor’s arm, her heart so full she thought it might actually burst out of her chest. She liked the way he’d said ‘my lady’ too, even though she knew he was likely just playing... more
