“Wonderful! Today, please.”

With that, Marina swings off the table, and saunters off.

Nia watches her go... and then whispers to her brother.

"She's up to something."

Permalink

“If she wasn’t, I’d be concerned she was sick. Raising the dead, she said. Wonder who we’re bringing back?”

Permalink

"You -- know her best. Anyone," you can think of?

Permalink

“I’m not sure being able to talk back to her without being set on fire is quite knowing her the best,” Makepeace says with a grin.

He does sober somewhat. “She wears a gold band on her right hand sometimes. On the ring finger.”

Permalink

"Everyone deserves love."

Permalink

Makepeace grins, and kisses her temple. “Sure they do. I just worry about what she considers love.”

He steps back to take her hand. “Come on. Books to steal.”

Permalink

She pulls him back and points to the map.

"Research first."

Permalink

Makepeace groans, but steps back to the map, leaning over it.

She quickly gets out a few of her books -- magic, math, notebooks -- and sits down next to the map, ready to study.

Permalink

Makepeace grabs a notebook of his own, knowing Nia likes to keep her own notes separate, but does slide the math book closer to him. 

He casts a tut on the map, and information starts writing itself onto it. 

Permalink

"Sh- show off," she smiles.

Permalink

"Like you can talk," Makepeace says, nudging her with his foot. "Now, go on. Work your magic."

Permalink

Her magic is a little more subtle than that, since she has much less power than her brother.

She brings her hands up, twisting and pushing them in a complicated dance and then --

-- the magic swirls the information around in the air, twisting and reorganising into a form she can understand. Her eyes flesh a bright gold.

"And you call me a show-off," Makepeace says, nudging her with his foot. 

Permalink

"You get to sna- snap your fingers and magic. It's not so easy for- me."

Permalink

"Nia," Makepeace says, reaching across to take her hands. "I snap my fingers and do ordinary shit. You take a little bit longer, dance those hands around, and you do incredible things." 

Permalink

"Only when you're around to help me," she says slowly.

Permalink

Makepeace's face hardened. He stood, rounded the table to Nia, and gathered her into his arms, holding her tightly.

"Nia, stop."
