That’s an acceptable instrument. What orchestra does she play in?

Permalink

Oh, she doesn't really think she's good enough for an orchestra yet...

Permalink

He doesn't say anything to that, but his face says that maybe she should practice more, then.

Anyway, how was school today?

Permalink

She's rather happy to chatter about that! School sounds mostly kinda tedious, except drama assorted teenagers are having.

Permalink

Haru listens to all of this with great interest.

Permalink

Homura tells Madoka to sit up properly when there's a break in the chatter.

Permalink

She does not sit up properly! She does, however, lean a bit closer to Homura.

"Eh, Homura-chan, why?"

Permalink

PANIC

W h y would Madoka do this to her in front of her family, Homura feels so visible. "To be proper during the meal."

Permalink

" - You okay, Homura-chan?"

Permalink

"Fine."

Permalink

She shrugs.

Permalink

She doesn't bother trying to correct Madoka's posture for the rest of the meal. It goes... okay. Nothing explodes. Uncle doesn't seem impressed but he doesn't seem overtly irritated either, which is a relief. 

Eventually the meal ends, Uncle dismissing them and retreating to his office. Homura clears the table. She'll take Madoka's plate too.

"Can I help clean up at all?"

Permalink

She is proud of Madoka for being polite. "In the kitchen."

Permalink

"Okay!" She hums as she helps, smiling often at Homura.

Permalink

......cute. Homura takes longer to put away dishes than usual because she is occupied by very Subtly watching Madoka. 

Permalink

Once they finish... it's probably time for Madoka to go home, now?

(Homura isn't sad about that at all. That would be ridiculous. She hadn't even wanted Madoka to stay for dinner.)

Permalink

Probably. Even if Madoka's a bit reluctant to go herself... Still, she'll see Homura tomorrow in class?

Permalink

Yes.

Madoka shouldn't die between now and then, it would be very irresponsible. Is she done with witch-hunting for the day?

Permalink

"Yes, probably! It's sweet that you care..."

Permalink

Blushblush. It's tempting to deny that Homura is motivated by anything more than the success of their group project, here, but... Madoka has been risking her life all this week. She risked her life for Homura. If knowing that people care might make Madoka more careful, then Madoka should know that people care.

Homura walks her to the door so that Madoka won't see her blushing. Hopefully.

"Goodnight, Karigane-chan."

Permalink

She beams.

"Goodnight, Homura-chan!!!"

Permalink

Madoka leaves. And Homura is - glad, of course. Peace and quiet have been restored.
