Fair point, that.

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 from her own that she just wasn't making sense to him anyway. She hesitated for a moment when he had no response to her previous comments and then decided that it was better not to keep pressing the matter.

In any case, Julius seemed excited for the cereal treats and Evelyn smiled at him. "It's awful as actual cereal, she explained when he put the box down. "But it's great for rice krispies. They're basically like... melted marshmallows and sweet cereal so it's just this big gooey bar thing. It's really great."

She agreed to get their ingredients together and resisted the urge to look back at Ness or Malikhi as she walked with Julius. "You're right, this does make more sense. I bet we'll find something good in the cupboard that we haven't thought of. Do we want to grab any of the books that Professor Brooding put out?" she added as they walked by the desk where the reference guides were. "What's your favorite dessert?" she asked him as they crossed the classroom.

    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

      • 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
              • You're not exactly normal yourself.Julius Astley, Crotalus, Sat Sep 15 11:30
                Julius blinked, surprised at the deep intensity of Evelyn's latest comment. There were very few people - read: no one - that Julius had met that viewed their existance in such a manner. The only... more
                • Perfect! Let's be friends, then!Evelyn Stones, Sat Sep 15 19:06
                  Evelyn watched Julius as he spoke, well aware that he didn't seem to be watching her. Or even noticing that she still existed in close proximity. Maybe at all. He had a funny way of speaking, with no ... more
