Evelyn Stones, Pecari
Tough crackers, my new friend!
Wed Aug 29, 2018 22:09

Evelyn turned her hips on their shared bench seats so she could angle herself more directly towards Julius Astley. It felt odd to even consider that she might ever have a conversation with him, let alone that she actually was in that moment. He was excited about potions and Professor Brooding, which was nice, but as Evelyn opened her mouth to respond, she watched his expression change. She stifled a smirk.

She'd seen a number of purebloods react similarly to her and it made sense than that the bite of stirfry Astley had consumed wasn't enough to maintain his high spirits for long. But now Evelyn was invested and, more than anything, she was curious. She was a well-educated girl from two strong pureblood families, regardless of what her mother was.

"No need to apologize," Evelyn replied easily, rolling her shoulders and preparing to make some food with this strange boy. "I'm not sure we've met. Allow me to formally introduce myself," she said, remembering the odd manners of family members at her grandfather's funeral. She tried not to sound so pretentious, though. "I'm Evelyn Stones, of the Washington Stones and the Oregon Watsons," she said, not actually sure if her family names meant anything. She dipped her head since curtsying wasn't an option while sitting, nor an option she would've chosen while standing.

"Which meal should we make?" she continued, letting her eyes smile while her mouth maintained a perfectly respectable position. The idea made her want to laugh and she hoped this boy could see all the humor in the situation.

    Julius was still smiling when Evelyn replied to him. He couldn't help it. He just felt so incredibly happy, all negative thoughts now banished from his mind. He felt as light as a feather, warm like... more

      • I think you'll be my first friend. Julius Astley, Crotalus, Sun Sep 2 14:08
        Julius could've quite possibly fallen out of his chair with surprise when the white-haired, bright lipsticked girl intoduced herself in the way that all Purebloods did, though she didn't sound nearly ... more
        • I am so sorry about that.Evelyn Stones, Pecari, Mon Sep 3 02:28
          Evelyn sort of wanted to laugh, never having heard of the Astleys or the Something French Soundings of France. She also sort of felt bad for the boy who was clearly so desperate to prove that his... more
          • I don't understand why?Julius Astley, Crotalus, Mon Sep 3 10:25
            Julius was forced to admit that the girl didn't appear to be as silly and unintelligent as her ridiculous costume jewellery and lipstick colours might have suggested. In fact, she appeared to be... more
            • You deserve lots of friends!Evelyn Stones, Mon Sep 3 21:07
              "That's okay!" Evelyn said, bcaktracking. She supposed Julius was probably either highly sheltered from confections, or his family was simply above the gooey treat. "It's krispie cereal and... more
              • You seem to be the only person who thinks so. Julius Astley, Crotalus, Mon Sep 3 22:44
                Julius was very confused by the entire situation that he found himself in. When he had first seen Evelyn as orientation, he'd dismissed her presence, considering her to be beneath him. Yet, in the... more

                  Evelyn nodded, understanding as Julius spoke of his father's expectations. While she certainly held no claims to any fortune or title, she was well aware of the pressures of an unreasonable and... more
                  • Isn't everyday a new day?Julius Astley, Crotalus, Tue Sep 4 11:09
                    Julius couldn't keep the confusion from his face as Evelyn leaned in, telling him that cooking was okay and something about a midnight snack. Such a concept was as foreign to Julius as her rice... more
                    • Fair point, that.Evelyn Stones, Tue Sep 4 19:39
                      Evelyn wasn't sure if Julius was confused or if she was. He had a look on his face that made Evelyn confident either she'd said something stupid, or Julius' life experience was so radically different ... more
