How about an olive?

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 expecting. Nolan knew what Myffi meant. He’d never had an, uh, medicinal brownie, or anything like it. One time Rufus Epsworth had brought a joint to a garden party, but his older brother Quentin had caught them (Rufus, Nolan, Conrad Axwell, and Thurmond Smith), confiscated it, and given the teenagers a lecture on drug use and propriety and all that. Quentin was an even bigger heel than Huburt Park and no one in Nolan’s group had gotten to smoke that night, even though Rufus had put up a good fight trying to get it back.

He finished his brownie while Myffi and Leo started talking about plants and eye color and… double huh. Had he misread Myffi’s wave? No, she’d definitely seemed to want him around when she gestured to the seat beside her. But his presence was clearly not wanted here at the moment, no matter whether Myffi said they mustn’t forget him. Nolan wasn’t sure what she had in mind, but since she lived on some kind of weirdo collectivist commune, he assumed he would rather not be remembered in this instance. “Really? Seems like you’re doing fine without me,” Nolan quipped.

No problem. He could go find his own entertainment. Myffi seemed to have the same idea as she patted his thigh the top of the prosthetic where it joined up with his leg remnant. “Nolan can take care of himself.

“Yes he can,” Nolan agreed. He snagged one more brownie from the bag. He didn’t feel any different than he had before eating the first brownie. Maybe they took a while to kick in? Nolan wasn’t sure how long that should take, but he figured he should probably wait to eat the second one until he knew what the first one is. In the meantime he might go and have another baked potato, see who else was around. He was pretty sure he’d seen Connor earlier. Nolan suspected the Cetus wouldn’t be interested in a medicinal brownie, but he did top the list of people at RMI it’d be interesting to get high with. Kaye would probably be the most fun, but the odds of her showing up to something outdoors seemed slim to zero. Her heels would probably sink into the ground like stakes. “Have fun, see y’all around,” he concluded, making a tipping-your-hat gesture toward Leo and Myffi before heading off.

  • 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

      • 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
