I'm just happy!

Silas blinked at how Dade said no. He may have been raised in the forests and jungles of this world, but he knew when people had that tone no good came from it. Silas watched as Dade looked down for his goggles. Silas was going to offer to retrieve them for him, but after the glare on the other boy’s face, he decided to let the kid get his stuff.

When Dade finished his question, Silas wondered if he should give him an actual answer or make up some nonsense. Deciding that the truth was wild enough as is, he decided not to give himself Spattergroit. “My parents forgot to send me to school this year, and my Nana found us and sent me here.” He said with nonchalance. No one’s parents just forgot to send them to school, no it was more of a conscious choice. Lucio and Abrielle didn’t want to lose precious time with their sons by sending them to boarding school. They realized with help from Lucio’s mother that their children did deserve a semi-normal upbringing.

They would never be normal as Silas had always lived in an RV which was always moving place to place. It was rare for the Graley to be in the same country week to week let alone the same city. Silas could probably count on two hands how many times he had slept in a place without wheels.

  • You say that way too happily - Dade, Wed Aug 23 08:24
    Ugh. Why was everyone (except Remington) at this school stupid? Of course Dade didn’t mean his question to be about Silas’s presence in the pool. It made sense for someone to be in a pool, usually.... more
    • I'm just happy! - Silas, Wed Aug 23 09:07
      • Well I hope it's not contagious - Dade, Wed Aug 23 09:22
        “They forgot ?” Dade asked incredulously. What kind of parents forgot to send their kids to school? To magical school, nonetheless. Kids who didn’t go to magical school had all sorts of issues... more
        • It is. *Rubs all over you* - Silas, Wed Aug 23 11:07
          Silas smiled when Dade repeated that his parents had forgotten. He laughed when Dade told him to stop lying and how it wasn’t even a good lie. “Hand to Merlin. We were hunting a Yeti in Tibet, and... more
          • Um. Yuck? - Dade, Sat Aug 26 07:13
            ‘Wildlife of the World’ didn’t sound like anything that Dade recognized, but the second year realized that this kid expected him to. Admittedly, it wasn’t as if Dade was connected very strongly to... more
            • Admit it, you love it. - Silas, Sun Aug 27 21:33
              Silas watched as the kid bent over oddly and retrieved his goggles. The way Dade had said that he could do it seemed like he was afraid that Silas would steal them or something. Why would the grey... more
              • Definitely not - Dade, Sat Sep 9 06:50
                “That’s stupid,” Silas was asking him about how long he’d been at RMI, but Dade was fixated on the idea of a black Yeti. “The whole point of Yetis is that they’re white and blend into the snow.... more
