-Violet massaged the back of her neck and looked down at her shuffling feet; there was no good answer to his question, whether she told the truth or not. Sometimes she didn’t even know herself. A sense of responsibility, maybe, though now he was in a good place again she supposed there was nothing to stop her moving on - except… “ -Yeah, I don’t get it, either. I haven’t stayed in one town this long since- well, since forever. Must be the smoothies at that diner. Too good to miss out on.”
-Violet’s coughs could have woken a bear from hibernation, and elicited a pained groan from her brother as he lay in bed; the lucky bastard had no work to go to, while he forced her to go to school as if everything was normal. If anything, she was sicker than he was- she’d caught the bloody bug first. “ -Be back in an hour when they send me home,” she called out with a scowl, and slammed the door behind her as a final act of childishness before she had to behave maturely once more, “ -Try not to die while I’m gone.” Knowing James, he’d sleep it off within the day. She had not been blessed with the same immune system.
She also did not have his spatial awareness, for she was no more than three steps past the stairs to their building before she’d slammed into one of the kids from her class and caused them to spill their scalding coffee down her shirt. Brilliant. “ -Look, I’d apologise if I weren’t close to death, but as it is I feel like you should’ve paid closer attention to where I was going.”
Here is the unofficial official activity check. Since things have been strange since the move, those who have passed the limit for inactivity are going to have a grace period, until the next activity check (five days from now). This is a list of all of those who are on the grace period, an updated hiatus list, and an unfollow list for those who quit with the transfer. This was only a little painful.
