"Thor. The one with durability."

He snorts, "Oh yes," he remembers now. "I think we were all disappointed when we learned they'd shuffled you out before we were finished. I meant to introduce you to Bia," he adds the last bit quickly, in explanation. 

"The three of you are attending USP? The magic engineering department, I assume, from our conversation before. It's good that we have a second chance to get to know each other."

Permalink

"We are. How about you three?"

Permalink

"Mm, we are. They're around here somewhere, though I have no idea where. Aleixo at least should have shown up by now, he left to get something to eat, but he texted me that he was on his way back a while ago." He frowns, looking around to see if the youngest triplet is loitering around somewhere. No such luck. "You didn't see him while you were reading here?" 

Permalink

"No. But I was reading, maybe we missed each other. Maybe he understood you two were going to meet somewhere?"

Permalink

"Hm, maybe he went back to the apartment," he agrees.

Pause.

He has a sudden suspicion, unlikely as it may be.

"Are your brothers wandering around campus, too?"

Permalink

"Yes? I mean, I am not sure, but they are out and about."

Permalink

"I know it would be quite the coincidence, but. If, say, Thor and Aleixo had crossed paths..." He pulls out his phone, texting Aleixo. 

Permalink

(Leco's phone is in his pants which are... somewhere behind him, probably. Anyway, he's a little distracted at the moment. He's not going to answer.)

Permalink

"...I guess they might, but what are the odds?"

Permalink

"Hmm... True enough." He sets the thought aside.

"Are you busy?" He asks, "I should find myself something to eat as well, but company would be appreciated, if you'd like." 

Permalink

"I am not busy at all."

Permalink

"Oh good. I should stop at the apartment before we go, to see if either of them have ended up there," he adds, "But that will only take about ten minutes." 

He glances down at the book Felix was reading while he moves to lead him towards their building. "What are you reading?"

Permalink

"A trashy romance about a young woman torn between her duties, her attraction to a man below her station and her coming to terms that she has magical powers. Set in 1800 New England. It's terrible." The last word is said in the tones of the word wonderful.

Permalink

He laughs, "Trashy romance? I wasn't expecting that," he says. "I've been known to read medieval fantasy. Knights and princesses," he admits, "Or knights and princes, when I can get them." Aleixo would tease him terribly for it, but he's been pretty good about keeping this little guilty pleasure from him, so far. One of his finest accomplishments, that. He's very proud of himself for it.

Permalink

"Knights and princes are also great. Harder to find the right knight or prince."

Permalink

"Mm, in novel form or in life. It's a shame. We're suffering from a real lack of princes desiring to be swept off their feet by a dashing knight, or vice-versa, around here." 

Permalink

"Really a shame, even in this modern world where the prince and knight binary can be blurred. I am sure I would be happy with either role."

Permalink

"Why not both? Subvert the knight-prince binary entirely." He turns to Felix as they reach the elevator doors, giving an over-fancy bow as they open, "Your carriage awaits, Prince Sir Felix," he adds with a playful smile. 

Permalink

"Let's hurry Prince Sir Gabriel. Before it strikes the 12th floor."

Permalink

He chuckles, stepping into the elevator after Felix and pressing the correct button.

"I'm afraid we'll have to face the 12th floor either way, the apartment is on the highest one."  

Permalink

"At the top of the castle's highest tower?"

Permalink

"With a guardian dragon and a talking bird as company," he laughs. 

Permalink

"As long either of those is wise-cracking then we are all set."

Permalink

"I can't really say that either of them is really a 'wise-cracking' type. I guess we'll just have to go on without a side-kick who's sole purpose is comedic relief! The horror. We'll be laughed out of the trashy romance character convention."
