It has bubbles and everything!

Katherine’s assertion that this was going to be fun was all Satveer needed. Affirmation of a successfully planned and, so far, executed date.

In all his research, which admittedly was limited, Satveer had only really seen featureless, clay golems in a bipedal, humanesque form. Satveer didn’t see why golems had to be like this. Of the plethora of animals in the world, there were plenty that would look cool, or interesting. Thinking outside the box, a number of ideas popped into Satveer’s head, but were also shot down. Most because of their complexity. His first thought was a friend for Darby, although animating / coordinating / creating just the legs was cause for headache. A simple character was… boring. A floating fish would be cool, but again, a little boring. After a number of none starters, Satveer finally suggested something that was both quirky enough to register on the cool-o-meter and would be an immediate like from Katherine. I have an idea. “I have an idea” he smiled with a twinkle in his eye. “Let’s drawer out a frame for him”.

Satveer stood and went to the stationary sideboard to retrieve a pencil and paper. As he approached the sideboard, Sally entered and dropped off their drinks before quickly leaving. His gaze rested on Katherine. His eyes lingered a little longer on her than they had ever done before. She made him feel… something. At that point, he wasn’t sure if this was how other 13 year old’s dates went, but he felt so grown up. Katherine looked so grownup and cute but still Kit-like. The recent hug and the peck on the cheek anchored that. Kit was still there, but she was now Katherine.

Having found the appropriate stationary from the cupboard next to the bits and bobs sideboard, a red and yellow HB pencil and a piece of A4 paper, he started making his way the short distance back. “Have you told anyone about, us?” Satveer asked rhetorically, he didn’t know what Drew had said to Katherine, but certainly got the message he told him. “I mean other other than Drew.” he quickly added. “It’s OK if you have. I haven’t. Other than Drew that is.” As he sat down, Satveer continued rambling a little. “I kinda told Drew my idea for today. To make sure you’d like it.” Pausing for breath, Satveer took a sip from his freshly delivered soda.

Enjoying the bubbles from his soda, (and the company) Satveer started to draw an outline for their golem. It was a little stumpier than the golems he’d researched and it had a rather large head. It’s two arms and two legs were in the appropriate places. Aware that Katherine may have gotten an inkling to the outline he was drawing, Satveer grabbed a length of wire and bent it into shape. “We may need a lot of blue things from the bits and bobs sideboard”. Once satisfied, he then placed the wire on top of the circular, head shaped drawing exampling two large ears. Each with a nick out of them. “We could make our own 626?”

  • And what a ship-launching ceremony this is - Katherine, Mon Aug 6 14:29
    Honestly, Katherine was a teensy-weensy bit overwhelmed because there was just so much going on. All the dates that Kit had ever seen or heard about was stuff like going to get coffee (which Kit... more

      • That's what really does it - Katherine, Wed Aug 15 12:33
        While Kit was staring at her pop, Satveer got up to fetch some things that the shop had left for them. He was still talking to her though, so she didn’t feel super awkward or anything. And he was... more

          Satveer couldn’t help but blush. “ date idea in the history of ever” . What an accolade. What a triumph. What a thing to brag about to Drew. Actually, what a thing for Katherine to brag about... more
