"I know," Mahra whispered back. He laid his hand over Brandt's cheek.

He sniffled softly and rested his cheek in Mahra's hand gently. "You should try one of my mama's cookies."

Mahra opened up his palm and held it up obligingly, his expression kind.

Brandt reached for the tin and inside were several different varieties of cookies. A couple snickerdoodles, pecan sandies, peanut butter, and brandt's personal favorite chocolate chip. All home made. "Which one do you want?"

Mahra selected the chocolate chip, carefully as though it were breakable. That's how Mahra handled everything, with delicate fingers. He smiled and then took a giant bite. Brandt could feel his pleasure rather than see it.

Brandt's grin was soft but still bright. "That's my favorite."

Brandt took one of the pecan sandies and set the tin down before he took a bite. "Now all we need's some milk or some hot chocolate."

"Yeah," Laurie huffed. He laid his hand on Mahra's shoulder and squeezed.

Mahra pulled out a small origami fox and held it out to Brandt. It animated slightly in his palm.

Mahra pointed just behind Brandt's shoulder, to another child his age with bright purple and turquoise liberty spikes poking out of the top of his head. He waved at Saejil and a warm note of encouragement brushed his mind, a desire for him to meet his family and his friends.

Brandt turned to look at the newcomer and he smiled, then waved. "Hi. What's your name?"

"Sage," the boy said and shoved his hands in his ppckets. "I'm Mahra's friend." He had a thick Finnish accent. "You the brother?" He directed the question at Brandt. He'd heard about him a lot from Mahra. It was nice to put a face to the name.

Brandt shook his head and looked at Laurie.

"Sweet 'do," Laurie smirked, giving him a two-fingered wave.

"Be nice," Mahra tapped him on the nose.

No, that was tbe brother. Sagee blushed hard and looked down. "I--uh--" he glanced at Mahra then back at his feet again. "I lost a bet."

Mahra was a relatively open book compared to Laurie, and had shared memories of his brother with Sage during the months they'd been together. Mostly in feelings and images, that Laurie wasn't a nice person, but he was a good one. He cared, he protected, he endured. He was there, when no one else was. He was the reason Mahra was alive.

"I like it," Mahra injected with an innocent grin.

"You're evil," Laurie laughed. He held out a hand to Sage. "It's good to meet you. Laurie."

Sage kind of just looked at Laurie's hand for a moment, contemplative and a little helpless, then looked up at Laurie, apologetic. "I, umm--don't really shake hands. Sorry." He blushed again. "It's really nice to meet you. Mahra's told me a lot about you."

He didn't make it awkward, instead using the movement to pick up one of the origami animals and tug on its ears playfully. "Oh really," he laughed. "Horror stories, I'm sure." It was a joke, but he sent a little look to his brother that indicated it might have held a kernel of truth. Mahra wasn't like him, he didn't keep his cards close to his chest. He wasn't afraid, or ashamed, which periodically put Laurie in a tough position. "These are yours, huh?" he held up the paper bear which raised its claws.

Sage shrugged in response. "Mostly the--good stuff and yeah. It's kind of one of my things."

"They're really cool. Can you make a horse?" Brandt, apparently, really liked horses.

Sage smiled and nodded. "With or without a rider?"

Brandt thought it over for a minute. "Hmm--without."

Laurie draped his arm over Mahra's shoulder, comfortable looking over Brandt and Saejil in watchful silence, a small smile on his face.

He sat down on his own bed and grabbed a brown sheet of his origami paper and began folding. He patted the space on his bed next to him for Brandt to sit, which Brandt did, watching Sage work.

"What's your name?" Sage asked as he carefully folded.

"Brandt," the other boy said. "Where did you learn how to do that?"

Sage didn't respond right away, seeming to be concentrating hard on what he was doing. "My mom... She taught me."

Laurie and Mahra used the opportunity to privately communicate via what appeared to be a mental connection! After a half an hour or so, he indicated he was going to head out to a spare conference room for a bit of a break. Brandt met him just outside the lobby afterwards.

"Ready spaghetti," Laurie nudged him, shoulder to shoulder.
