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 appreciate hearing she felt that way.

I think we’ve got enough people on spirit squad, but if you want to stay and hang out with me, I won’t complain.” Was that too bold? She knew her parents probably wouldn’t appreciate her being so...brazen.

“And they always get the girl!” She added, noticing a slight dip in Victor’s enthusiasm when she mentioned the sword. “Real or not, I’m sure you could still vanquish spiders with your sword. That’s all I require in a hero. Spider killing and reaching things.”

        “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

            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
