Steise settled on his nose. Fluttering her wings for a moment, she stirred the thin feathers around the base of her wings. Trying his best to even his breathing, Eóin focused inward on her. His nose wanted to twitch under the unfamiliar contact, but he held it as still has he could.
She looked at one eye and then the other. “You know you look really stupid like that.”
“I know.” He smiled sheepishly.
“But somehow… you’re the same as before.”
“You mean… you’re okay with me like this?”
“No way!” She exclaimed, kicking him just under his eye. “You could get us both killed if anyone found out!”
Wincing, Eóin scrunched up his face in shock rather than pain. Timidly, he peeked one eye open.
She sighed, shaking her head from side to side. She tenderly kissed her hand and lowered it to his face. “But I came back, didn’t I? Besides, your ears are too cute when they're that short.”
His eyebrows immediately shot skyward as blood rushed to his cheeks. “They aren't that short! They’re human sized!”
Steise grinned slyly. “Exactly.”
The àlainn have relativity long ears compared to humans.
Garugh! These two make me want to bleed rainbows and pull all the stuffing from my collection of teddy bears so I can roll around in fluff. o_o
I want to share their story with you guys, you have no idea! But I want to write more of MBK before I do that, what with it being the prequel and all.
Anyway, here's Eóin and Steise at the age of their story, being cute and all that good stuff. Enjoy!~
