"Hello, gege!" Nie Huaisang says as he flops down next to Tomonori. The sparkles in his voice are audible.

"Hello! How was your morning?"

Permalink

"Good! I'm working on altering Song Lan's clothes for Masozi!"

Permalink

"Oh, that's nice. Are they very different in size and shape? Masozi seems too thin."

Permalink

"I have been assigned to make sure he eats."

Permalink

"Oh, good. Are you as good with clothes as you are at drawing?"

Permalink

"Not quite, but I bet I'm one of the best in the school. Why, do your clothes need to be tailored?" He looks at Tomonori's clothes. "...They need to be tailored."

Permalink

"Do you think so?"

Tomonori looks down at his clothes, but he realizes he doesn't know what he's looking for. He guesses he can see what Nie Huaisang means.

"That would be nice of you."

Permalink

"Your shoulder seam is nowhere near your shoulderbone, your pants are way too baggy, and in general you dress like you picked clothes two sizes too large so they would definitely fit."

Permalink

"Oh. I didn't pick my clothes, my parents did. You can fix them?"

Permalink

"Yeah, but I've got a queue-- I've got to finish Masozi's clothes and make curtains for the nurse."

Permalink

"You're doing so much! I didn't know we had a nurse. Did you design Masozi's clothes?"

Tomonori assumes that Nie Huaisang draws everything he thinks up.

Permalink

"No, they're Song Lan's, I just needed to alter them so they fit Masozi, all I need for that is thread, a needle, and a seam ripper."

Permalink

"You don't design when you alter clothes? How do you know what they'll look like when you finish?"

He tries to imagine his clothes, but smaller. He doesn't think this would help him alter clothes; maybe it's about practice.

Permalink

"Well, I measure Masozi, and I measure the clothes, and I take them in a bit?"

Permalink

Math works regardless of whether Tomonori can imagine it, so he'll just assume there's math involved. It's subtraction, that's simple. Something about it still feels wrong, like he's not understanding something, but Tomonori knows not to follow that niggling urge to completely understand something; he'll get too distracted to do their work and he'll just annoy Nie Huaisang.

He just nods and reads the assignment.

Nie Huaisang is sparkling at Tomonori and Tomonori is NOT GRATEFUL ENOUGH ABOUT THIS FACT.

Jiang Cheng glares at him.

Permalink

Tomonori does not notice! He is excited about the assignment and will happy tell Nie Huaisang what they need to do.

It looks like it's the usual basic knife-making task that freshmen get, but it's still exciting.

Permalink

He means what Tomonori needs to do while Nie Huaisang touches him on the arm and tells him how brilliant he is.

Permalink

Tomonori will need to drag them over to the supply cabinets before too long, though, at which point he looks around in the hopes of finding someone they can walk with.

Permalink

Oh. Jiang Cheng.

"We need backup to go get supplies. Do you think you could ask Jiang Cheng to come with us?"

Permalink

"Sure! I bet he'll be way better-behaved today."

Permalink

Okay. Tomonori will walk with Nie Huaisang over to Jiang Cheng. They can hold hands if Nie Huaisang wants?

Permalink

Eeeeeee handholding. He is SPARKLING at Tomonori now.

Permalink

Okay.

Hello Jiang Cheng. Good morning. Could you please, oh gracious, honorable?

"Hello, honorable Jiang Cheng. Could you- graciously could you help us, graciously- Nie Huaisang and I- get supplies today. Uh, from the cabinets?"

Permalink

"Why are you being so weird."
