Malikhi Hill, Pecari
In that case, we need a house.

Malikhi loved the feel of the water as he dove into the sea, holding his breath. It was delightfully cold but not so cold that he would freeze, making it a nice constrast to the warm sun above. He broke through the surface of the water with a gasp, his now wet hair sticking to his face. He pushed it back and for once, you could see every feature of his face, the water making it easier to keep it slicked back. Droplets of water rolled down over his cheeks and he grinned as he looked at Evelyn.

He thought she looked a little odd without her bright lipstick on, having only seen her with her lips painted in vivid colours but he still thought she was pretty nonetheless. She was smiling at him and accused him of being a cheater to which he only laughed loudly in return. In response to her question, he plunged back into the waves and swam near to her and tickled the backs of her legs and her feet. He resurfaced in front of her, grinning at her mischievously.

"I'm a very good swimmer," he told her, now stating the obvious. "My Dad taught me. He said it was a life skill that I absolutely had to have."

He let himself fall backwards onto the surface of the water, allowing himself to just float, the waves lapping at his skin. It was a nice, relaxing feeling and Malikhi sighed contentedly. Here, with Linney, in the waves, Malikhi felt very happy indeed.

        Evelyn giggled and jumped when Malikhi tickled her legs and feet, and allowed herself to drift on the waves instead of landing again. He was in a playful mood and she enjoyed him smiling, the... more
        • Fair point, well made!Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Mon Aug 6 23:35
          Malikhi cracked an eye open, seeing Evelyn's face above him. That was a nice sight and idly wondered that, if in the instance that he fell of his broom, if her face would be above him then. He... more
          • Thank you, I'm here all week!Evelyn Stones, Mon Aug 6 23:55
            Evelyn didn't breathe a sigh of relief, for fear of swallowing sea water instead, but she certainly felt relieved. She'd managed not to alienate either of her two new friends so far, and she couldn't ... more
            • I hope you'll be here longer than that.Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Tue Aug 7 13:03
              Malikhi felt Evelyn's wave crash into him, washing over his chest and shoulders. He was rather surprised that the small girl had managed to produce a wave of that size, given that she didn't seem to... more

                Evelyn was too excited to disagree with food-- not that she'd really ever disagree with food any other time either-- and allowed herself to be led back to the shore by Malikhi. She sort of wanted to... more

                  Malikhi flopped down onto his towel and pulled his rucksack closer, emptying it of the various food and snacks that he'd packed for their afternoon. He was having a good time, spending it under a... more
                  • You'll have to share!Evelyn Stones, Tue Aug 7 21:34
                    Evelyn was surprised by Malikhi's response, but knew she shouldn't be. Most students at Sonora were thoroughly magical, and most parents had different expectations for their developing child than... more

                      Malikhi unwrapped one of the sandwiches that he'd brought - cheese and tomato, a favourite of his - and took a bite. He resisted to urge to groan in delight as the softness of the white bread, the... more
