[TXT] A lot better than I was. 

[TXT] My morphine dosage has been lowered.  I know you came to visit, but I don’t honestly remember much about what we talked about.  I’ll remember this time if you come again.

A few minutes later:

[TXT] Roy, Mia, and Ollie are all okay.  I saw them for a minute yesterday on comms.

[ENCRYPTED TEXT] We talked about the corrective surgery you had in December.

[ENCRYPTED TEXT] We don’t have to talk about it anymore.

[ENCRYPTED TEXT] I know. I have all three of their life-signs monitored on our system.

[Unsent TXT] No, I

[TXT] It means a lot to me to be able to talk about it with you.

[TXT] Or talk about anything, really.

Distance Learning

Roy , over on Starfish, kicks the portable router, shouting at it, unintelligibly. 

Mari looks over at her comm as it does a half-beep, but after it fails to continue the sound, returns to her book. 

Roy shouts at the box again, but when Mia shouts back at him to be quiet (the irony escapes it at the moment, but he’ll grin about it later) he hisses: “Wayne Tech piece of shhyeah—Mar’i?” He speaks into the comm.

Mari nearly jumps when Roy’s voice comes through, crackling softly with static, and throws herself across the hospital bed—stitches be damned—to grab her comm before the signal cuts off again. “—OY?” she calls back into it, settling back onto her pillow. “Are you there?” 

Roy grins and responds. “God, it’s good to hear your voice, sugarbutt.” He doesn’t care who is monitoring the channels right now—he never has. He leans back and continues. “Signal is shit out here.”

Li-Li, my apple-cheeked baby girl, thank you!  

I’m feeling much better and I’m not sleeping most of the day anymore, so if you want to come visit, I would love to see you!  I already miss your face!  We can play doctor with the gumi-aids and then eat them all!

Hush-a Lullaby

Zee texts Kyle from her apartment, [Txt] I read the reports that are out [Txt] You doing ok? 

Kyle wakes up from his light doze, and reads Zee’s texts. [Ring Txt] I’m good [Ring Txt] @ Watchtower rn 

Zee [Txt] Heading up. Zee casts herself up to the Watchtower. She guesses that Kyle is likely in the medbay, but texts him anyway, [Txt] Where are you? 

Kyle looks at Mar’i’s slumbering form and then stands up, heading outside into the hallway. He’s about to text Zee then, but when he looks up, she’s heading towards him. Kyle smiles, a warm feeling of pleasure washing over him. He opens his arms out for her. “Hey beautiful.” 

Zee smiles as soon as she sees him, proud of herself for guessing correctly. She hugs him tightly, invited in by his open arms, “Hi, handsome. Rough day?” 

Kyle ”Not for me, no,” Kyle keeps hugging Zee, tilting up and resting his chin lightly on her hair. “Definitely for others. I’m just…up here.” He smooths her hair and leans back to look at Zee. “What’ve you been up to today? More fittings?”

[Unsent TXT] don’t even joke abo

[TXT] so that’s where lian gets the guilt-tripping from, i bet you’re even puppy-dogging the phone right now

Also, peachbun, you gotta stop going through your Aunt Mia’s nightstand drawers, okay?

Boys aren’t gross because that would mean Papa’s gross and if he’s gross then so am I.  Okay!!! Let’s all be ugly and gross! It’ll be fun!!!  As long as I can have baths in the pool.

I like looking at people’s stuff! I like pretending I’mma spy. I have to get good at it, Marmee.  I tried to be a spy with Damian and it kinda went wrong because I was scared and then Ramsey got mad at me and then I cried a lot.  Don’t tell Papa ok? I’ll tell him soon.

Your papa is totally the grossest and that’s why I love him, AND YOU.  You gotta ask him about the pool-bath thing, though.  

Okay, baby, I won’t tell him.  I promise.  But you gotta promise if you’re crying, you’ll come find me, and I’ll promise I won’t get mad at you, okay?  And if you want, I’ll show you how I do spy-stuff when I’m working, so next time you’ll be even better at it (although I’m sure you were awesome at it the first time!)

Isn’t she beeeuuuutiful?

She’s preeeeeeeeety beeeeeauuuutiful, Li-Li, but not as beeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaauuuuuuuuuuuuuuutifulllllllll as you!!!

I don’t wanna be beautiful I wanna be ugly!!!  Ugly is way more fun!  Anyway only girls like Helen are beautiful, she’s like a Helen of Trojan Latex Protection.

Wellllllllllllll, beauty isn’t really a ‘real’ thing because everyone decides what it means to them and how much they want to be it.  And ugly is the same way.  So if you wanna be ugly, then I’ll be ugly with you and we’ll tell all the gross boys to get over it because we’re the ugliest!

Also, peachbun, you gotta stop going through your Aunt Mia’s nightstand drawers, okay?

W-wait you’re makING THIS AMAZING?!?! FOOD?!?!?!

Your surprise surprises me!

I always assume everyone I know is a take-out king like me.  Plus I love being surprised!

Take-out kimbap in America is disgusting, man.  Homemade is the best, because then you can make spam, tuna, and plain egg rolls and you don’t have to worry about idiots’ side-eyes at your appetite.

Looks really good, what is it?

Unrolled kimbap!  Mostly unrolled because I can’t find my bamboo mat and I keep eating the pickled radish and bardock…
