Evelyn couldn't help laughing as she watched Malikhi load himself up with breakfast foods that could only really be called treats. She herself went for the sausages she'd noticed before, and she grabbed an additional pitcher of juice as well. She was glad there weren't enough people around to give them weird looks, but she also sort of wished there were; let them look.

More than anything, Malikhi looked happy, and Evelyn couldn't help looking at him. Finally he didn't seem so chagrined and Evelyn was confident that, while his birthday might still not be what he wanted today, at least it wasn't going to be so overwhelming for him.

"If you keep putting stuff in your robes like that," Evelyn said, sniggering at him as he approached. "The prairie elves are going to go on strike and give up on doing any more laundry. You'll have to wash all your own clothes in the bathroom sink!"

It felt good to tease him playing felt as natural as breathing. She relaxed inwardly and smiled, feeling more confident that today was going to be a good day.

"Let's go," Evelyn agreed, her smile bubbly and her eyes bright. She followed Malikhi back through the Gardens and to the Common Room.

  • Thank you. That means a lot. Malikhi Hill, Sun Sep 9 12:43
    Evelyn's hug was a comfort as was her rubbing his back. It was an action that reminded him of something his mother did when he was upset and while it made him miss her more, it also soothed him and,... more

      • You mean a lot to me. Malikhi Hill, Sun Sep 9 18:57
        The Pecari common room was warm when they returned, a welcome contrast to the cooler weather outside. After setting his horde of food down on a nearby table, he immediately flopped onto one of the... more
        • Well, then.Evelyn Stones, Mon Sep 10 00:40
          Evelyn cocked her head, a curious smile asking all the questions she wouldn't dare put words to. Instead, she just chuckled and took a chomp out of the waffle as she could, letting Malikhi hold it up ... more
          • Now what?Malikhi Hill, Mon Sep 10 00:56
            Evelyn's blankets were as warm and as cozy as they looked and Malikhi felt swaddled in warmth as he wrapped one around his shoulders. He was a little disappointed that she wasn't sitting closer to... more

              Evelyn only had time to be mortified for half a second when Malikhi started laughing and she found herself drawn into the sound. It was almost impossible to be focused on any negative feeling when... more
              • Can I hibernate cuddling you?Malikhi Hill, Tue Sep 11 13:12
                Malikhi grinned widely at Evelyn and reached for the plate of waffles - going about offering them to her far more sensibly than she'd given him the sausages. He let her take however many she wanted... more

                  "If you win... you get my necklace!" she decided, pulling a leather cord out of the front of her robes. A carved wooden pendant featured the "om" symbol and she held it out for Malikhi to see. "It... more
                  • That maybe could become a yes!Malikhi Hill, Sat Sep 15 11:40
                    It wasn't a hug and he didn't really understand her explanation but she mentioned something about her 'Pinguism' as he'd taken to calling it in his head but he smiled, accepting it as the stake. It... more
                    • I love your optimism.Evelyn Stones, Wed Sep 26 01:25
                      Evelyn laughed softly, nodding in acceptance of his offer. She was glad she knew Malikhi as well as she did because she certainly thought her necklace was worth more than a plate of chocolate. But... more
