This time she whacks it across the side, hard, and then stumbles back a few paces from the impact.

Permalink

"That was a good hit!" she says, as the can flies off, disintegrating mid flight.

Permalink

"It was acceptable."

Permalink

"Wanna keep practicing, then?"

Permalink

She does.

They can practice Homura's aiming at airborne objects for about forty minutes before she wears herself out and needs to stop. (Frustrating. And embarrassing. But at this point Homura knows better than to push herself until she literally collapses or suffers a heart attack. That wouldn't be useful to Madoka at all.)

She sets the tip of her bat down against the pavement and dips her head. "I should conserve the rest of my energy for accompanying you."

Permalink

"Back home?"

Permalink

"You are not going to search for witches today?"

Permalink

"I wasn't thinking of it... I don't need to every night, really?"

Permalink

Oh. "Mn."

She definitely wants to walk Madoka home. She definitely does not want to say that out loud.

Permalink

"So walk me home?"

Permalink

She dips her head in assent. "Mm."

Permalink

She beams and drops out of her magical girl costume, swirling back to her normal school clothes.

Permalink

Homura is completely neutral about this wardrobe change and any amount of swirling that it entails.

"Should I leave the bat here?" She doesn't think it will fit in her backpack.

Permalink

She hums. "It'd be nice for you to have a weapon... But we can get it again tomorrow, maybe bring something to carry it in better..."

Permalink

She nods, and places the bat down very carefully on the dirty ground. "Stay there," she tells it.

Now they can go.

Permalink

She stays next to Homura as they walk home, hands tantalizingly close, chattering the whole way.

Permalink

Homura is stressed.

She does not take Madoka's hand, because why would she ever do that. She will stare straight ahead in Complete Indifference instead.

 

Until they reach Madoka's house. Then she will gaze over at Madoka a little wistfully.

Permalink

She grins at Homura. "Do you wanna stay for a bit?"

Permalink

 

 

"For homework."

Permalink

"Sure."

Permalink

She'll follow Madoka inside.

Permalink

Madoka's really happy about this! Her family doesn't disturb them from going up to Madoka's room.

Permalink

Following Madoka into her room makes Homura light-headed.

 

From all her exertion today finally catching up to her, one assumes.

She puts down her bag and unpacks her books rapidly, so that she has something to look at instead of Madoka's bed as soon as possible.

Permalink

"You okay, Homura-chan?"

Permalink

"Yes." Of course she's okay. Does she not look okay? She's very okay. Madoka's bed has enough space for both of them to lay down on it at once, and their feet or hands would probably touch if they tried, and Homura is completely fine with that.
