You're so odd though.

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 funny and was showing almost no display of humor. Either way it was strange. For a moment, Evelyn returned to her initial judgment that Julius was an arrogant, prideful Pureblood who cared too much about status. Then she thought again of his comments about his father and thought maybe he was a pressured, scared kid who'd been taught to care too much about status. She didn't often acknowledge that she was older than anybody in her year but when she was face-to-face with someone who seemed so young, like a child playing House or something, she couldn't help feeling a bit older than him.

"I agree," she said about Churches. She hardly paid attention to which ingredients she grabbed, although she did make a point of reaching for the Murtlap tentacles, her mind full of images of rice krispie treat octopi with squishy tentacle legs. "I think everything sort of does, honestly. At home, I climbed trees a lot, and it always helped remind me that people are only around for a short time. All those trees are so much older than us and they've seen so much more than we have. It's crazy to think about how small a point on the world's historical timeline each of us are individually." The thought helped her relax, although she was a bit sad to realize that she hadn't gotten to climb any trees since coming to Sonora. Perhaps there would be some forest-y areas near Ness' house for Christmas.

        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
