Emmett Lawrence
F is for Friends who do stuff together

In a completely common turn of events, Emmett’s growling stomach interrupted his otherwise planned activities. Not that he fought it very hard, because he was just studying and that was lame as heck and food was way better anyway. So he sat down his textbook, threw on some pants (whatever, he was alone in his dorm room), and headed out.

He was just walking into the Finer Diner to acquire a midday extra meal “snack” when he saw Kaye whisk by, her hands full of cookies and a winter coat still encompassing her tiny frame. He raised an eyebrow at her urgency, then noticed how distressed it clearly was. So he kept an eye on her, watching her select an empty table. She looked positively miserable, so he went over to join her.

He sat next to her and let his one-shoulder backpack slide off beside him. The Lyra opened his mouth to offer some sort of greeting, but he was cut off by snappish and direct instructions to shut up and consume cookies. It didn’t look like they were on a plate that belonged to the school, but he knew better than to question where Kaye got things. It could’ve belonged to anyone literally anywhere from here to Sweden.

“Don’t mind if I do,” he said instead, taking a couple chocolate chip cookies from the plate that had been shoved at him, even though he wasn’t feeling nearly as focused on food as he had been when he arrived. Emmett chewed through half of one cookie in silence, but at that point, he stopped following instructions and un-shut up. “Do you want to talk about… whatever it is?” he asked cautiously, placing a hand ever so lightly on her shoulder and remaining vigilant in case she didn’t appreciate the physical gesture and also happened to have some kind of stolen cutlery on her person.

    Kaye never walked so fast in her life. Pearl Street was left behind in a blur as she made her way past the shops, hands full of double chocolate cookie, and into the bookshop. For a brief moment, she ... more

      • N is for No Survivors - Kaye, Sun Sep 23 14:18
        Of the people who could have approached her, Emmett was probably the most acceptable. She felt closest to him out of everyone left at this stupid school. She’d started to enjoy spending time with... more
        • U is for U forgot “U” - Emmett, Sun Sep 23 15:19
          Emmett almost wished he had been stabbed. He kinda felt like it anyway. He absolutely hated seeing women cry. Emmett had made his peace with the likeliness of Kaye shanking him for trying to help -... more
          • O is for Oops - Kaye, Sun Sep 23 16:58
            Kaye wasn’t a crier. Her emotions tended to lean more towards righteous fury and vengeance than anything else. She cried when they decided to shave her head and when she left the charter school in... more
            • Dial M for Murder - Emmett, Wed Sep 26 21:21
              Emmett was, in pretty much all regards, not a particularly threatening young man. He had a soft face and kind eyes, and while his stocky build was decidedly athletic, anyone who had ever met him knew ... more

                It shouldn’t be a surprise that Emmett’s first reaction was to threaten bodily harm to Ruben. For such a sweet little summer child, the Lyra wasn’t afraid to get his hands dirty for his friends. At... more
