I can roll with this

Leo had spent the morning with Eugene. In fact he had spent almost every morning since he’d come back to school being dogged by his little brother. At first he’d thought it was kind of endearing to wake up for his early morning run to find Eugene sitting in the common room with a stupid grin on his face and far too chatty for that hour of the day but he’d soon grown sick of it. It was the same every day, the kid would just start talking and he didn’t stop not even when Leo started running laps by the pitch. He’d just plonk himself down on the grass and start jabbering about all the boring things he’d done the day before and Leo soon began to wish the kid would do something crazy just to shake up their morning conversations. Like, Leo didn’t need to know all about Eugene’s breakfast plans or his stupid roommate- not unless someone was getting stabbed or starting a few fires.

He’d never been so glad to have an AgriClub event to attended and had explained to Eugene how he had to go early to help set things up. Of course Eugene had wanted to come then, and Leo wasn’t proud of it OK, but he needed his space- he needed a Eugene-free space- so he’d eventually told him AgriClub was exclusively for older students and hey, maybe he could join up in a year or so, wouldn’t that be fun! So after he’d watched Eugene drag his heels off toward the common room, Leo had set off do his bit to help the planet or the cows or whatever.

Everything seemed to go well, or at least the food went down well, Leo couldn't really tell if they’d managed to snag any new recruits but Myffi appeared pleased. So he was happy enough. Once he'd had his fill Leo brushed some crumbs off his lap and made himself comfortable by the flames. It wasn’t long before Myffi joined him and greeted him with a promising proposition.

His mouth gaped open in surprise. Was she really offering him what he thought she was? Leo gazed at his friend with new found respect. It was easy to forget that Myffi was a rebel of sort, always pushing against the boundaries of society, sure she was no James Dean but that was because Myffi actually had a cause (or twelve). With a quirk of his eyebrow, Leo cleared his throat and tried to adopt a similar casual tone to hers, but was betrayed by the tug of his lips as he fought back a smile, “Hypothetically speaking, of course, I wouldn’t say I’d be opposed.” Leo had never had vegan brownies before, especially not the kind he thought Myffi was talking about, but after the morning he’d had he was hardly going to turn it down.

    When it seemed like everyone had settled, Myfanwy indulged in a small baked potato with tomato and herb sauce and a little salad on the side. After she was done eating, and satisfied that at least... more

        Sitting around a bonfire in the evening of a warm September day, the weather charms creating a soft breeze that lightly brushed along Myffi’s bare forearms, the seventh year felt almost giddy with... more

          Cledan sounded like something you might call your owl not a person so of course it made sense that one of Myffi’s friends and/or relative had such a name. She was Welsh after all and it seemed to him ... more
          • Y’all give up on subjects? - Nolan Ramsey, Thu Jul 19 17:20
            Even if they didn’t get to eat the food, Nolan would still participate in AgriClub. Pearl Street was pretty cool, especially now that Nolan could go up and see Quint a few blocks away, but a city was ... more

              Leo took a brownie, eagerly consuming almost the whole, roughly cut chunk in one bite. He didn’t object to its taste - history had taught Myfanwy that if Leo didn’t like something he would say so -... more
              • We're just going around in circles - Leo, Mon Jul 23 10:13
                Leo couldn’t pinpoint the exact time Nolan Ramsey decided to join them. One moment it was just Myffi and him, happily hanging out and then Leo looked around and Nolan was just there . Leo could never ... more
                • Let’s add a twist - Myffi, Tue Jul 24 04:48
                  This felt like a moment. There was a beautiful dusk, and a crackling bonfire, and Leo was super close. They’d been close before, looking at the same page in a textbook, or even closer, when Leo had... more
                  • How about an olive? - Nolan, Tue Jul 24 16:40
                    “ I feel obliged to inform you that these brownies are legal only for medicinal use where you come from. ” Huh. Well, this was going to be a much more interesting AgriClub event than he had been... more
                    • Nah, too bitter - Leo, Sun Jul 29 11:42
                      Leo’s head was spinning and it had little to do with the brownies. Myffi had just kissed him. Of course Leo had wanted Myffi to kiss him but now that it had happened he wasn’t sure what to do about... more
                      • Would you prefer something sweet? - Myffi, Mon Jul 30 03:43
                        Leo’s reaction was just to sort of look at her. Myffi guessed that, like her, he was trying to figure out what this new twist was all about. Then he laughed a bit, albeit nervously, and Myffi decided ... more
