In Which Sevvie Suggests a Game

March 30, 1192

"So... we just need to think of a use for it." Sounded simple enough. Indeed, it was a question Sevvie had toyed with in the past, though he hadn't voiced his musings to Yvanette. He wanted to be supportive. He would help her with any breakthroughs, but he wouldn't force her through any. "Hmm... what about espionage?"

"I guess. Though, there's not much to spy on around home, and I doubt my parents will let me leave the country by myself."

"All right... what about simple discovery, then?"

"What, like secret passages?" Yvanette snorted. "What good would that do if I couldn't fit normally?"

"I don't know. Storage?" Or maybe not. "Um..."

"If you say 'pest control', I'll have to kick you."

"I was actually going to say 'voyeurism'--ow!" He reached down and rubbed his aching shin. "All right, all right. Hmm... guess we were closest with the espionage thing. What if you just took to tailing your siblings?"

"My siblings are aware of the situation."

"You can spy on my siblings then. I'm sure they wouldn't mind too much."

"I doubt they're up to anything too interesting."

"Fair enough. Better stick with people our age or older." Well, he guess that sort of included Adonis, but he didn't really care to know what Adonis did when he was alone anyway. "What if we made a game of it? We could meet every Saturday, pick some random person we both know, and you can spy on them at some point during the week?"

Yvanette shrugged. She didn't look too thrilled with the idea, but she didn't look repulsed either. Perhaps, in this case, that was good enough. "I guess we could try it."
