Aladrens usually are.

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 too far apart, he had a general trouty look to him. Plus his anxiety and antisocial nature made him ‘the weird kid’. He knew that Farrah was a little shy, but who would pick on her because of it? He had to take a deep breath, in hopes that it would help calm the anger that was building inside of him.

“I-I’m sorry you had to go through all of that. I know that feeling.” He paused for a moment, trying to figure out the right thing to say. “You know, if that ever happens to you here, you can talk to me. I think I have the whole Hulk thing under control now, so I won’t break anymore bones, but I’m a decent listener. One of the perks of having these.” He said, pointing to his ears with his free hand.

He was glad that Farrah hadn’t read too much into his comment, and seemed to have accepted it at face value. He was afraid of things being awkward between them, so he was glad when she said she liked him too, not that he really doubted it. “You’re welcome. Thank you for helping me through Science club.”

    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

          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

                    "You're welcome." Farrah replied. She had meant her compliment even though she wasn't sure why she had said it. It was such a strange moment for her to have made it, but it had felt right and even if ... more
