William does not look super impressed by this.

Theo waves and off he goes because he's got things to do–

– and then when he's back in his bedroom he messages Em and asks: Do you know what might happen to make people lose their voices?

Permalink

I was wondering how long it'd take you to notice that

is 'magic' the answer you're looking for

Permalink

Did you do it?

Permalink

nope

dunno who. we're on it.

Permalink

Is it everyone or has it just targeted some people and should I stop bugging you so you can keep working or what?

Permalink

got everyone in my house and some other people in town

but definitely not everyone everywhere

best guess for now is it's just sunnydale

you can help if you want??? but i didn't think you wanted

Permalink

I didn't realize it was an ongoing thing and I kinda don't want to be left in the dark about my voice going missing so uh yeah I'm up for helping if there's something?

Permalink

i mean there's always SOMETHING happening and it didn't seem like you were into being involved

but yeah sure we can always use an extra pair of hands

Permalink

Where should I meet? And are we just texting for communication or what.

Permalink

yeah p much? except reuben's a nerd who writes faster than he types so he's doing that

i know a lil bit of sign language but not all that much and im the only one anyhow

She adds a house address.

He grabs a bag and puts in some convenient things – pencil, water, food – and then goes downstairs and waves to his dad.

Permalink

Who frowns at him but doesn't actually stop him.

Permalink

And then he replies:

I know a bit but not much. Omw.

Permalink

There's a few people in the streets looking various configurations of confused and panicked, but not a lot. Presumably this is at least in part because it's too early for most people to have woken up and noticed a lack of voice.

The address is for a house in the bad part of town (insofar as Sunnydale has a bad part of town), with cracked siding and an extremely purple paint job and flowers that are overflowing the flowerbeds and invading the lawn.

Permalink

'Hello?' he tries – and, of course, fails – to ask.

He sighs at himself, then gets out his phone to let Em know he's here.

Permalink

The front door shortly thereafter opens to reveal an Em, who raises an eyebrow and points at the doorbell.

Permalink

He waves and totally ignores the pointing and walks towards the house.

Permalink

She rolls her eyes but steps aside to let him in.

There's a little hanging bowl of water affixed to the wall just inside the door; Em looks at Theo pointedly, dips her fingers into it, then steps back and gestures between him and the bowl.

Permalink

He… looks at it slightly blankly. Then motions as if to put his hand in, tilting his head.

Permalink

Impatient nod.

Permalink

He does it!

There is no hissing or burning or anything.

Permalink

Em gives him a thumbs-up and leads him into the kitchen.

Permalink

He follows!

Permalink

Reuben is there, wearing an apron and making pancakes and bacon on the stove. He smiles at Theo, only a little awkwardly, and gives a tiny wave.
