Laurie had separated from Qingying during that line of questioning, tense and closed off by the time he was done. His jaw ticked from where he ground his back teeth together harshly. "I just want you to know that I'm serious," he said evenly, not angry but clearly uncomfortable.

"Hm, and I want you to know I dislike being spoken to with do you understand," he said, just as evenly and lightly musically as before, but there was less brightness in his eyes than usual.

Qingying shut his eyes for a few moments.
"I wonder how I'm supposed to react right now...?" He opened one eye and smiled, almost playfully.

"What? I don't know," Laurie shrugged. "Why should you react? Just accept it. Or, don't. Depends on how much you give a shit about what I want." He said the last bit casually, like he didn't care, but the way his hands clenched in his lap clearly indicated otherwise.

"Ah, I see," Qingying dipped his head. "This is important to you, otherwise you would have focused more on my not liking your wording."
He raised both hands, palms facing upwards in a shrug that didn't include movement of his shoulders. "I already said it was an abandoned skill - I have no interest in it. Most people's lives are similar, anyway. History just repeats. There's nothing particularly attractive making me want to look at anyone, really. It's not 'me' - doesn't 'suit me'. Like I said, I don't intend to look inside your mind."

"It's important to me," Laurie replied. He drew himself up, forcing himself to meet Qingying's eyes.

He met his gaze and gave a small sigh.
"You know, I was actually trying to be displeased. I wonder if I still am." He hadn't moved from his spot, seated on the forest floor.

"Displeased with what? Because I asked you not to?" Laurie's eyebrows knitted together incredulously, and then he pressed his lips together, grim. Figures. "Yeah, all right. Whatever." He stared at the wall.

That made some genuine amusement show in a smile.
"No," he said, shaking his head. "I was displeased about 'do you understand'. Speaking like that - it seems as if you're better than other people; it's impolite, and as if you think you can tell other people what to do. It's not quite helpful to push others away with that in your quest to get people to actually do what you want them to do."

"Yeah, well, I don't have the luxury of asking politely," he replied, somewhat tersely.

He tilted his head, still smiling.
"Yes you do. Quite a number of people are willing to respond to politeness. Surely you would not have responded well if I had been continuously rude to you? You could try it." It was spoken with a light tone that said 'you could try it in general', rather than try it here.

"OK, except for the part where you are rude to me, a lot," Laurie pointed out dryly.

"Oh, I doubt it's a lot." He lifted his hands from the spot on his lap where they'd been neatly placed, and touched the fingers of one hand to a finger of another, as unhurried and graceful as ever. "I could count it, even. But the amount of times in one 'session' is quite a bit more." ^_^

"You have a singular talent for missing the point, you know that?" Laurie's eyebrows arched, and then he blew out a sigh. "It doesn't matter," Laurie wrapped his cloak tighter around himself. "In my experience, people don't respond to politeness."

That smile became a bit more earthed and he seemed to agree with silence for a few moments while considering the ground.
"I will respond to it, though," he looked up, and then spread his hands. "In this environment, people are more likely to respond to politeness. Each person has their own limits - being impolite doesn't really place them in favour." He tilted his head to the right side this time and gave a smile that seemed to say he understood if Laurie thought otherwise sometimes. Qingying always understood there were reasons for thoughts, actions, and decisions.

Qingying could tell that the direction this conversation had taken was twisting inside of his heart, shooting adrenaline all down his body until his fingers and toes tingled and his whole head felt hot. "Yeah. Fine," he nodded sharply.

Okay well getting an 'agreement' like that was also a bit.

"Come over here," he extended an open palm towards Laurie.

He wasn't going to grab him.

"Do you like hugs, or being held, Laurie?" He asked, voice gentle.

He blinked, clearing his throat, giving Qingying a deer-in-headlights look. "Um, what?"

He tilted his head, the previously extended hand resting among the leaves.
"Hugs, and being held." He demonstrated by wrapping his arms (and big sleeves) around himself. "Do you like them?"

"Uh... uh," he answered eloquently. "I don't know. Not, uh, not, what, do you want a hug?" he cleared his throat again, squaring his shoulders.

"It's not about me," he said, puckering his lips and lifting his chin slightly with a little pout that didn't seem angry at all. "I asked whether you liked hugs. Think about it - or feel the answer out, I don't know." He waved his right hand.
Mulaning it out.

It was obvious he'd been caught off guard. "Yeah, I guess they're fine. I don't like anything else, though."
