It was the 22nd. He tilted his head at the ceiling.

“I don’t suppose… he’d agree to come tomorrow.” His looked over at her with a moderately enquiring gaze.

"I'll bring it up with him," she smiled gently.

He smiled back. “Thank you.”
Then he gazed towards the corridor. “Ah, he’s on his way.”

Yarah stood up. "Are you guys heading out now?"

He looked back at her with a smile tinted with a little bit of mischief.
“He wanted to talk to you.” He stepped out of the office and turned towards her. “I’ll wait out here.”

Laurie entered after him with a nod, and the two spoke for about ten minutes before he exited. She stood in the threshold of the door and waved to them both. "Take good care," she smiled at them.

“Thanks, you too,” Qingying said with a smile as he waved back.
Then he looked down at Laurie. “I’ll say bye to Mahra.” He always seemed to routinely greet and say his goodbyes.

Qingying headed upstairs and sat by Mahra.
He still felt a bit bad that Mahra had to feel the emotions of earlier, but he knew Mahra wouldn’t want him to apologise. He also didn’t blame Laurie, and emotions were not wrong.
He stroked Mahra’s hair. Before Yarah had spoken to him, he’d thought that maybe, a while down the line, he’d bring up possibly adopting the two of them, if they desired it.
He hadn’t planned on talking to Mahra about it before he’d gotten here.
“Hey, Mahra…” He began, although Mahra would already know what he intended to speak of.

He was sitting cross-legged by a bookstand, waving his fingers over some bits of paper that floated in wavy lines around one another, but he turned when Qingying entered the common area and they dropped in a flutter to the ground as Mahra flashed a grin at him. "Hi," he replied quietly, giving a little wave. The bits of paper one-by-one danced back into the air and neatly dropped into a garbage bin behind him.

His eyes followed the paper, bringing a small smile to his lips.
Then he tilted his head, suddenly a little hesitant, not sure how to begin.
Maybe it was too early?

“What do you think…” His gaze rested on the rim of the bin for a few moments before meeting Mahra’s. “…If you and Laurie… and me… became a family, in the future, officially?” He gestured between them slowly. “So, it would be legal, and we would have a house…” His gaze lowered.

Mahra touched Qin's shoulder and smiled, transmitting a sense of warmth and love. He nodded once. It wasn't a response of words, but Qingying could feel his enthusiasm and pleasure.

But he didn’t know him very-
Well, actually, Mahra did know him; better than anyone else in existence, actually, because he’d seen him.

He dipped his head. “I… Yarah suggested I speak to Laurie about it soon, because – although I did say I promise to stay – Laurie may not fully think that.” He paused. “I… was thinking – originally – of speaking to you two about it a bit later… because it hasn’t been that long.” He smiled at himself a little – an expression of light, amused exasperation – because it was as if he was asking Mahra for advice… and he didn’t want Mahra to have to do that, because he was a child.

He peeked sideways at him. He knew Mahra wouldn’t mind, but he did. Qingying had a role; he didn’t want to rely on Mahra.

Mahra laughed gently and balanced his hands palm-up like scales. We've been alone forever. Laurie moreso. We don't need lots of time, just lots of love.

His gaze lowered again.
They hadn’t known him very long – he’d observed Laurie before Laurie got to meet him.
Perhaps not everyone needed that long.
Or, rather, perhaps time could be shorter when people actually interacted; not just watched.

He tried a small smile as he looked over at Mahra. “Are you… not a bit nervous?” He knew Mahra wasn’t, but… If he were them, he would be.

He shook his head. "I know it's good," he spoke out loud, amused.

He smiled softly at the fact Mahra could be amused at this.
Well, that was good.
He gazed forwards. “If I talk to Laurie- I think it’s a good idea if we speak together. Hm. There isn’t that long, left.” Holidays ended a few days after New Year’s. “Well,” he huffed a light laugh. “If he’s unsure at first, I’ll give him time.”

We can tell when people are good or bad pretty fast, Mahra assured him. Maybe he'll still behave badly, but, usually he's only nice to people he doesn't trust. Mahra laughed for real at that. Laurie's a backwards boop.

A boop, Qingying chuckled, his eyes bright.
He met Mahra’s gaze.
After a slight pause, he said, “You…” He paused again. “What do you need, Mahra?” He tilted his head a little with a soft smile. Sure, Mahra may have more resources to deal with things, but it wasn’t that he wasn’t hurt; it wasn’t that he didn’t have things he needed, things he wanted, and things he liked. Maybe Qingying couldn’t provide all of them – and maybe some of the things Mahra wanted or liked, Qingying couldn’t quite get himself to give, because of his own caution and structure – but he wouldn’t forget that Mahra was just a child. “What do you need?”

Mahra held out his hand, palm-up, for Qin to take.

Mahra squeezed his fingertips, the sensation engulfing Qingying's body in a gentle hug. Just this.

He felt it quietly for a few moments.
But would it help you to heal?
Then he felt stupid, because Mahra had already said it would, before – though at that time, they were more talking about Laurie.

Didn’t Mahra need, or want something else in particular, or this, in a particular way?

He thought about it – but only briefly, before he stopped.
I’m-
Well, he supposed, he was asking to help himself; to be sure – but sometimes, actually, most of the time, love wasn’t so precise.
He was probably silly.
He couldn’t really help it though.
He hoped Mahra wouldn’t mind.
