You deserve lots of friends!

"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 marhsmallow and butter I think. Should be really easy to do in a cauldron." She smiled at the suggestion of using Murtlap tentacles. "I think that could be really fun to use tentacles," she said. "We could do a Halloween-themed dessert!"

Julius seemed so eager, both to start the task and to please. She was surprised that he would care so much about her perception of him, but she doubted whether he had the opportunity to meet many other people or impress others. In a first-year class including herself, Malikhi, and Ness, the Pureblood high-class crowd was sure to feel out of place. She smiled encouragingly as he began speaking about his life at home. Then she stopped when he did.

Her curiosity was way too strong to ignore when tact was hardly on her mind, so she pressed the matter.

"More fitting because you're wealthy? Or a boy? Or something else?" Evelyn said. There was no judgment in her tone, just open curiosity. "I read a lot and focused mostly on religion and lore, but politics are a huge part of that so I know a bit on the subject," she added, both to answer his question and to make him feel a bit more comfortable.

  • 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 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
        • Well, today is a new day, my friend.Evelyn Stones, Tue Sep 4 02:36
          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
              • It was well made, wasn't it?Julius Astley, Crotalus, Tue Sep 4 20:26
                Somehow, the words 'big gooey bar thing' didn't fill Julius with much confidence in that their dessert would actually be any good. However, Evelyn seemed to know what she was talking about and given... more
                • I'll give you half credit.Evelyn Stones, Wed Sep 5 02:22
                  Evelyn's eyes flicked towards Julius when he said he would recall any information they needed. At first, she was prepared to laugh. Then she realized he was serious. She wasn't sure what exactly was... more
                  • Uh, I think I deserve full credit, actually. Julius Astley, Crotalus, Fri Sep 7 15:31
                    Julius reached for a jar of pearl dust that shined when it hit the light. He didn't know much about jewellery but he knew that his mother owned several pearl necklaces and they were all very pretty.... more
                    • You're so odd though.Evelyn Stones, Fri Sep 7 16:54
                      Evelyn blinked. Why was this boy, presumably eleven or twelve, so strange and reserved? Either he was trying very hard to be polite and feign amusement at her lame joke or he actually thought it was... more
