"It really is."

There's a long moment of silence, and then Mika sits up, turning to throw his arms around Tepam and flopping over Teo's back in the process, "We should go exploring to cheer ourselves up!" 

Permalink

"We should!"

Permalink

"We should!" Teo agrees.

Permalink

"Come on, then," rolling off the bed! He bounces over to the door and opens it a crack, peering out into the hallway to check that the coast is clear.

Permalink

It's not. They can spot a security Grey talking to Tepam's grandmother, who also came for this visit.

Permalink

Darn.

He shuts the door again, turning back to the others with a pout, "No luck, your grandma's out there with a security Grey." 

Permalink

"Aw, man. We will never be able to leave."

Permalink

Flop, back onto the bed.

After a moment, he sits back up, "Maybe someone could distract them?"

Permalink

"Distract how?"

Permalink

"Hm... just... go talk to them so they're looking away while we sneak past?" He glances over at Seni and Karo, then to the door to the other room, "Lesi'll probably do it if I ask, but she doesn't like lying, so I don't really want to, even if she doesn't really need to lie, exactly..."

Permalink

"They are bad at lying for blues." Teo says of his brothers.

Permalink

"I am not."

Permalink

"Ummm..." He hesitates. It's true that Seni is not the best at lying. And Mika really doesn't want to get him in trouble... 

But he doesn't think Tani will do it, and Ovali will just want to come with them... 

"You wouldn't really have to lie, anyway, just distract them," he ends up saying, shifting a bit unhappily. 

Permalink

"Why do you want to go out now? It's kinda late." Karo pipes up.

Permalink

"Well, they're gonna be keeping us busy with stuff all during the days," he points out. "This is the first time we've really had free, I think?"

Permalink

"You do know you will get caught, if not on the way out in the back in. And that might ruin future trips for everyone, right?"

Permalink

"...Oh, that's true."

He wasn't really thinking about the consequences. Just the chance to go explore somewhere new without someone making his choices for him on where to go and what to see. But the chance that they'll never even get to leave the island again if they ruin this trip...

He glances at Tep for her opinion. 

Permalink

"Aw, I want to go out."

Permalink

"Well, you can't succeed. And you were fine with just the trip until now."

Permalink

Mika is now very conflicted!

 

"I wanna go, too, but... He's right. We'll get caught. Um... maybe we can bring something to let us sneak out without them noticing next time?" 

Permalink

"I mean, you shouldn't sneak out next time too, but that would be more likely to work and less likely to get everyone in trouble."

Permalink

"Yes, we shall bide our time until it's the right moment to enact our plan." Teo says dramatically.

Permalink

He's distracted from replying to Seni by Teo's proclamation, too busy giggling to speak. 

Permalink

Which sets Tepam off.

Permalink

Teo laughs maniacally which then turn into actual laughter.
