Thank you, I'm here all week!

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 wait for them to meet. Malikhi seemed more neutral about Ness now, too, which was a good sign in her mind.

Then he splashed her, and she shrieked again, suddenly wishing she was just a little stronger or a little more powerful. She swam towards the more shallow water where she could catch her feet in the sand and dug her heels in, using the muscles in her chest to push as much water back towards Malikhi as she could. If she was just a little bit stronger....

Her arms and hands tingled as she thought that and she was surprised to see a wave much bigger than she'd expected push its way towards Malikhi. It wasn't unusually big, and she doubted Malikhi would've noticed, but it was definitely bigger than she normally might've managed.

She stared at her hands for a moment, surprised and a little horrified. It wasn't much as far as accidental magic went, but...

"I did it!" She felt like singing or dancing or jumping. She felt like swooping towards Malikhi and wrapping him in the tightest thank-you hug she could imagine. Certainly some part of this newfound ability had to be due to the ease at which she found herself around him. "It wasn't much... sort of lame really... but Kai, I haven't done any accidental magic since I was five years old! They didn't know if they could even send me here!"

If this had been any other time, she might have worried that he'd judge her for such things, but now she knew she was in the right place. She'd take being a weak witch if it meant she really was a witch at least. It also helped that the wave had effectively reached Malikhi and she'd managed to use accidental magic for playful purposes instead of anything more nefarious.

Unable to contain herself, she did exactly what she wanted to do, and bounded towards him (as much as one can bound through the ocean) and wrapped him in a hug, breaking free in order to jump up and down. "Kai, I friggin' did it!"

  • 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

      • 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
        • Seven years since now they won't kick me!Evelyn Stones, Tue Aug 7 16:08
          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
          • Good because I want you with me.Malikhi Hill, Pecari, Tue Aug 7 16:50
            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

                  Evelyn was pretty sure she wouldn't be able to say Llanbedr, let alone spell it, but that was okay. Malikhi also said 'Shell Island' and she could pronounce that. "How far away is Shell Island from... more

                    Malikhi took a swig of water from his bottle before copying Evelyn by opening his own bag of crisps. He popped one into his mouth and it gave a delightfully loud crunch as he bit into it. Another... more
                    • "A dream is a wish your heart makes..."Evelyn Stones, Wed Aug 8 18:06
                      Malikhi's road trip sounded amazing and that familiar twinge of jealousy made Evelyn's stomach roll. She also found herself rather homesick. In this instance, it wasn't that she had never experienced ... more
