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 will be me and you and Stephanie. That's everyone right?' 'Well, I can't think of anyone else.' That hadn't sounded like the kind of tone Evelyn was using and Ness trusted her. Malakhi... Malakhi just seemed kinda constantly off, and currently Ness would trust him about as far as it was possible to throw him. But it was all ok, and Evelyn seemed happy for Ness to join, even if Malakhi seemed luke warm about the whole thing. It would have been inaccurate to say that Ness had no idea what his problem was. Ness had just been being Ness. But the first year knew that, very often, that did seem to be a problem for others. What it was harder to figure out was why.

They always make me think of Pride because that's always one of the family friendly events. Everyone tries to dye or charm as much of their food rainbow as possible. At least, the sweet stuff. Savoury things somehow shouldn't be rainbow coloured."
