Chuck it out the window?

“Those sound very interesting,” Raine commented with a smile, as Jozua explained about his house. She wanted to tell him how nice it was to meet someone else who thought in usual ways, or at least whose family did, and that it made her feel a certain camaraderie, especially as most of the world didn’t seem to see eye to eye with Jozua’s grandfather about how useful his idea was. “And very useful. Even if it’s not for everyone,” she added tentatively, not quite confident enough to express the ways in which she understood what that feeling was like. She was curious as to what had been in Jozua’s special bin, but felt that question was a little too personal for someone she didn’t know particularly well. If she had to have such a bin, she’d probably keep some of her favourite costumes, and the records she’d bought with Dallas… Little things from her childhood. She wasn’t sure it would need updating very often, as most of her treasures were small objects that she’d always owned. Her family tried to travel light, and didn’t always have much money, so she didn’t keep on getting new things. Maybe she could keep everything she owned in one, depending on their size.

Raine tried not to panic when Jozua asked her what the lesson was about. She wasn’t good at explaining to other people Part of her wanted to just refer him to the board, but she knew that might seem abrupt, even though she didn’t mean it like that, and that it would be good to keep the conversation going because she would probably need his help with the writing.

So… is that our aim? Or our method?” she asked anxiously. “Sorry… I’m not very good at explaining to other people,” she added, feeling that this was by now painfully obvious and that it might be less awkward to just acknowledge it. At least Jozua was a fellow Teppenpaw, which meant he’d probably be at least somewhat sympathetic about it. “Maybe I should have let someone more useful come and help you.”

    Jozua sighed and relaxed his cross-armed stance as she asked in concern after the well being of his family. “Nah,” he said, shaking his head. “We’re Sparks. My great great granddad figured out how to ... more
