There was something comforting in the way that Dustin asked her if she was sure if she was okay. It was an entirely boyish thing to do, something that Gabe-y had asked Laila a few times when they were younger and she hadn't wanted to tell him what was bothering her.

The simple prompting from her brother usually got Laila to spill what was on her mind, but she hardly knew Dustin apart from admiring his lovely freckles and besides that she'd once had a crush on him. She hardly wanted to start telling him about how another boy had just indirectly broken her heart.

          Laila giggled a little as Dustin played up his maleness, already starting to feel a little better. "Thanks," she replied. "I really appreciate that, I kind of don't want to think about it right now... more

            Dustin was pretty sure Laila was giggling somewhat at his expense, but for right now, he didnít really mind. It was just nice that she was laughing, however slight, and hopefully starting to feel... more
            • Laila nodded. That sounded really nice--she didn't want to go back to Cascade Hall just yet and she didn't really know where else to go, but walking around with Dustin sounded like a welcome... more
