Evelyn Stones
Facepalm. On the desk. Facedesk?
Tue Aug 21, 2018 23:16

Evelyn wondered whether it would be exactly as nice as she thought it sounded to just put her head on the desk and disappear. Perhaps her next bout of accidental magic would be to disapparate, although getting lynched didn't sound fun. She sighed, instead, and sat up a bit. Looking first at Ness, she spoke in as soft a voice as she could manage. She actually did pretty well, considering.

"Ness, I really appreciate you being so helpful and thoughtful. I sort of don't really want to be helped right now. I sort of want to be left alone and just kind of disappear. I really do appreciate you trying to help, and I'd love to talk more later about this, okay? Also, please don't be short with Malikhi. He's not trying to be hurtful. It means a lot that you'd stand up for me, though." She managed a little bit of a smile before turning her head again.

She looked at Malikhi without waiting for Ness' reply. She thought it was a very mature response and didn't want to hear Ness' response to it just yet since Ness always sounded even more mature, and she sort of wanted to win this one. Well. Maybe tie.

"Kai," she murmured, hoping her tone would draw him out of his shell.

She felt a slight brush of resentment at needing to comfort her friends when she was the one embarrassed but it would be better to just be nice to them than take out her anger or whatever else on them. She offered him a small smile as well, although her eyebrows were pulled together and she was quite sure she looked more like a mother than anything else. She hoped he didn't think so. Maybe she'd look like a puppy or a...she couldn't think of another cute animal that would be more exciting. Grindylow came to mind but that wasn't a good thing to look like.

"Kai, I'm not quite ready to laugh at this one, but I'm glad you didn't make fun of me. It's probably a little bit funny," she blushed. Did she really think that? "You know I love your sense of humor. Don't be short with Ness, either. I had a rough morning and Ness is just trying to make sure I'm okay."

Then she turned her face back to her paper and continued writing. At some point, she would need to say more, probably to both of them, but now was not that moment. Instead, she decided to enjoy the best of them both.

Nodding at Ness, she pulled out her wand again and took a breath. She nudged Malikhi with her shoulder. "Chocolate frog if it snows this time?"

She wasn't quite happy, but close enough.

"Pangolus," she whispered. And then, when nothing happened: "Thank Alisanos."

(OOC: Alisanos was an ancient Celtic mountain god/god of stone.)

    Poor Evelyn. Ness would have hated to have messed up a spell and have everyone looking, or have needed the teacher to come over to deal with the situation. But it was Malakhi that Ness really blamed... more

        Malikhi was still quietly bristling to himself about Ness. He had his doubts that the pair would build a friendship like he had with Evelyn and he wasn't entirely sure that he wanted to. She didn't... more

          What Evelyn was saying did not make sense. If someone needed help, why would they not want it? Ok, like, if it was a class assignment and they wanted the satisfaction of working it out themselves,... more

            Evelyn turned when Ness spoke, and her face was full of a smile. She hadn't expected Ness to be interested in anything that involved Malikhi and was hesitant to push her friend to spend more time... more

              Malikhi's mood seemed to be able to do nothing but go up and down today and at hearing Evelyn invite Ness to join them for lunch made it plummet back down and sour again. They'd spent time together... more

                Phew. They weren't trying to exclude Ness. The first year remembered times in elementary school when people had loudly and pointedly made plans without asking Ness to be a part of it. 'Yay, so it... more
