Slightly less cool, now

“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 you clean up, if you want?” offered Victor, a little surprised as the words came out of his mouth. Taking on extra, unnecessary work wasn’t normally his style, but something had prompted him to offer his services to Ayla. Oh well, odds were they already had enough people, and if she did take him up on his offer, it would be a bonus point for him. And he wouldn’t mind doing it for her.

“Princes are actually pretty cool,” he informed her. “They have lots of adventures, and they’re always the hero.” However, his face fell slightly at her question about his sword, which suddenly didn’t seem quite as cool.

“It’s not actually real,” he confessed. “Apparently it’s too dangerous to take a real sword to a party.” His mother had been quite taken aback when she realised her oldest son had been expecting a real sword as part of his costume. Luckily, Jehan had saved the day by pointing out to Victor that, in case of danger, he could always use his wand to make the sword real. This had comforted the young Crotalus, who had been concerned about failing to live up to his costume if a real emergency arose.

        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
