"No, no, I want to go to the Avalon," sighs Savannah.

"Okay."

Bella falls silent.

Darren exchanges a look with Bella that says, 'I have no idea what's going on I don't know why she is like this.'

But he also falls silent.

Savannah does not break the silence. She doesn't even grouse about the pair up front being silent.

"So," says Darren, after a while. "Where should we go first when we reach the Avalon? Food, I'm guessing?"

Permalink

"Should collect our prospective employee and buy him lunch and see if we trust him with a great big stack of scrolls and their instruction manuals."

Permalink

Nod. "Hopefully he's not going to cackle and then go running off with his new found power of invisibility to spy in the girl's showers or something."

Permalink

"Or pretend to lose the stock in a fire and not give us our money."

Permalink

"That, too. Sorry, I grew up with Savannah, take a wild guess at what she wanted to use invisibility for."

Permalink

Savannah flips Darren the bird.

Permalink

"What, really? Savannah, you are aware that as a lesbian you have the coveted trait of already sharing gym lockers with who you'd want to stare at. Being invisible would make you creepier but not particularly more effective."

Permalink

She rolls her eyes and doesn't reply. She gives an annoyed sigh, and then looks out the window, obviously not feeling talkative.

Darren looks at her, and tilts his head.

"Okay. Twin veto rules apply, what the hell is up? I changed the subject, are you mad at us for something and just feeling - weird and passive aggressive today?"
Permalink

"Nothing is up, you keep bugging me, stop it."

Permalink

"Okay, Savannah, seriously, I am not blind and stupid, something is wrong. Tell me what it is and I promise not to mope or get passive aggressive about you not telling me sooner."

Permalink

"Auuugh," says Savannah. "Shush. Just - shush, stop talking, that is what's wrong, you keep talking and poking me and it's getting on my nerves!"

Permalink

"The fact that I am talking is getting on your nerves? That - what, that never happens, what topics are upsetting you so I can avoid them and stop upsetting you? You told me to go back to talking about magic, you think that's the most boring thing ever."

Permalink
There is an - awkward pause, from Savannah.

"Because I don't want to talk right now," she says, a bit off guard.
Permalink

"Then what do you want to go to the Avalon for?"

Permalink


"Reasons," declares Savannah, throwing up her hands.
Permalink

"Please stop being cagey, Savannah I'm your brother I won't disown you or something if it's terrible - is someone dead, is that what's going on?"

Permalink

"I'm not fucking scared of you disowning me! I'm pissed off because you are bugging me for no reason and now you are interrogating me!"

Permalink

"You're acting strange. That's not no reason."

Permalink

"I'm allowed to be strange if I want to!"

Permalink
Bella sighs.

"Suppose."
