Malikhi Hill, Pecari
I hope you'll be here longer than that.

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 be particularly strong. He was amused though, a laugh erupting from his throat, and he was about to send another wave towards Evelyn when he noticed that she was staring at her hands with an expression somewhere between surprise and abject horror. Confused, he started to move closer towards her, hoping that nothing was wrong.


Anything else he was wanting to say was cut off by Evelyn's excited shriek, clearly overjoyed. Suffice to say, Malikhi was completely confused by the situation. She was babbling, her words coming out in a rush and Malikhi didn't really understand or catch any of what she was saying. Then, she was coming towards him and enveloped him in a hug.

Unlike the hugs they'd shared in the great hall, Malikhi wasn't entirely sure how to react, given that he had no idea what she was happy about or why exactly he was being hugged. He'd never been hugged in the sea before and it was a very wet hug, some of her hair sticking to his cheek. He'd only just wrapped his arms around her when she broke free of him and was jumping up and down, causing more water to splash over him.

He wasn't entirely sure what she was excited about but was glad that she was happy and smiled widely.

Then, his stomach growled, indicating hunger.

"Ah, we'd better have something to eat," he announced and he grabbed Evelyn's hand as he started to making his way out of the water and to the shore. "Come on!"

        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

                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'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
