He nodded, smiling briefly. "Yeah."

He propped his chin on one hand. “What’s are you thinking of getting? Or making – making is good, too.” Qingying was always making things.

Oh, he was going to get stuff there and then send it to them. Well, that worked.
“Okay,” he nodded. They spent the evening chatting and snacking.

The next morning, Laurie woke up to Qingying waiting for him to do the daily stretching routine together. It was something Qingying had managed to get Laurie to join in in November, and they did it together before breakfast.

Laurie was not a fan of exercise and he was self-conscious, which made his movements jerky and awkward, but he obliged Qingying anyway even if he felt stupid doing it.

Good thing no one else could see them!
Qingying was very flexible (it was likely rather freaky, actually, the first time Laurie saw him move like that and make his body into weird shapes and curves), and always began with a warm up. If it was just before a flying lesson, Qingying did sport-specific controlled dynamic stretches with him, and had shown him ones he could do.
Sometimes Qingying just stretched out of the blue because he found it relaxing and comfortable. After stretching, it actually felt pretty good, and that helped Laurie discover he was usually stiffer than he realised. Qingying called the loose feeling afterwards, ‘feeling like a noodle’.

Qingying had told Laurie stretching wasn’t supposed to hurt a lot because pain meant his muscles were being injured, so he shouldn’t push too hard, and also tell him when something hurt (because he knew Laurie would just grit his teeth and pretend it didn’t >_>). He should also relax, which wasn’t something Laurie was an expert at.

Qingying slid over to sit next to him. “Take a breath in, and then send that breath down your arm to your fingers. Relax them. Then, take another breath, send it to your fingers, and relax them more. You’ll find you’re usually more tense than you think – we all are. Funnily enough, relaxing takes work, because we’re not used to it. When your fingers are relaxed, think about your elbow – the rest of your arm – is it relaxed? Can it relax more?
The muscles around your shoulders… What about your neck? Then send your breath down your left arm.”

And as far as tension went, Laurie was tense. And focusing on this way seemed to be a trigger of sorts for negative sensations, so he was silent and rarely responded to verbal prompts, doing everything as quickly as possible to get it over with. He was not relaxed, and he was not comfortable. Oh, and, obviously, he never told Qingying when something hurt, but as a person who experienced chronic pain, Qingying could tell when Laurie was hiding it by the lines of his face.

Well they did it anyway! :C
And Qingying didn’t let Laurie flail and jerk around because that was risky.
He gave Laurie a pointed look with a small smile.

God Laurie hated every second of it but he 'smiled' AKA grimaced back.

He praised Laurie for his efforts and soothed him with a hand gently on his back. He sat there next to him (and joined in so Laurie wouldn’t feel even more self-conscious being stared at). Maybe Laurie wasn’t comfortable now, but at least some parts of his body would be comfortable later.
Small victories!
Shuang and Ozzy climbed onto Laurie’s back as if to ‘help’.

Ozzy chittered and played with Laurie's hair. "Yeah, yeah, laugh it up," Laurie grit under his breath at the niffler, rolling his eyes.

“Come on, if you don’t loosen up we won’t move onto the next one,” Qingying sang.

Qingying put a hand on his back. “Hm, still feels quite stiff to me." He sang the 'me'. "Take a breath in.”

“Annnnd breathe ouuuuttttt.” Qingying gave him a little push at the base of his back. He knew it hurt Laurie a bit but it wouldn’t be too bad. “Relax. Relax. If you don’t relax we won’t stop.” :3 “Relax with your breath.”

He just stared ahead blankly, and then as though a switch flipped his whole body sagged. "Yeah, OK."

That concerned him. He brought his face over to peer at Laurie. “Orie?”

"I'm relaxed." By all intents and purposes he seemed relaxed.

His hand had left his back when he moved over to look at him.
