"I'm, I gotta, homework. Before... lights out." He thumbed back at the door.

"Both, I guess, OK?" Laurie huffed, ire raising once more.

"I don't trust you!" Laurie blurted, and his features fell when he realized what he'd said. "Just because everyone here seems nice doesn't mean anything."

He frowned slightly, appearing thoughtful.

Laurie just shrugged, not fully understanding the question.

“You don’t know… what would make you trust someone… but you say people are untrustworthy… Would you be able to trust anyone, then?” He wondered.

His expression softened again. “I see.”
He stepped out of the room of constellations and looked around the Treehouse to check everything was in place, Shuang following behind him.
“Let’s go to the owlery.”

Qingying took a box with him, and they made their way back through the passage (Shuang sitting on Laurie’s shoulder) and out of the wall, which closed behind them.

A few owls rustled as they entered, a couple rousing to blink at them. Qingying stepped away from Laurie to clean up the area and arrange bedding. He approached a grumpy short-eared owl, which seemed to be his latest project, and let Laurie write his letter.

Laurie curled up in a corner with his quill and parchment, scratching away into the night.

He seemed most at peace here, calmed by the prospect of communicating with Mahra. His letters were surprisingly detailed, discussing the latest news with clear affection. Despite being only a year younger than himself, Laurie definitively took responsibility for raising his brother, taking on a much more parental role.

At long last he flicked his wand silently, and the letter wrapped itself up in an envelope, before tying to a gentle barn owl's leg with a spare piece of twine. Laurie scritched its head and it swooped out of the tower, shrieking in delight as it soared to the moon.

Sergeant the short-eared owl had calmed soon enough, and had (grumpily) stepped onto Qingying’s arm, but soon he'd felt offended by his current neighbour, Roseline the barred owl, and Qingying had to prevent them from getting into a fight, missing Laurie’s owl flying out of the window.

“Ah,” Qingying uttered, and carefully let Sergeant down (quite a bit away from Roseline) before he headed over to Laurie, one hand holding the box. “Maybe you could send half of this, too.”

He opened the box, and Laurie could see two dark grey, palm-sized objects shaped like squashed, flattish rugby balls, with one surface of each reflective and mirror-smooth.

He took one of the stones, tilting his head at them. "Yeah," he agreed, turning it over in the light.

Qingying took out the other one, and after a few moments, the surface of Laurie’s stretched out to become bigger, the base portion that he held onto remaining a palm-sized oval, and Laurie saw Qingying’s face (and a bit of the owlery) in it.

“I thought…” Qingying said as turned his one around to show that Laurie’s face was now displayed in it, “that Mahra might be more reassured to be able to see you…” His face inside Laurie’s surface moved as he moved, and his voice also came out of it.

Laurie tilted his head down at it. "Uh, yeah," he agreed a bit belatedly. "Yeah. I think, yeah. Thank you," he murmured, and moved to select an appropriately sized envelope for it. After a second he offered Qingying a small smile.

“I suppose Mistletoe Manduke decided it was about time wizards also had real-time long-distance communication like muggles do,” Qingying said, as Shuang floated from Laurie’s screen to see what was inside of Qingying’s. “This is an early model; I’d been following it for a while and got it delivered about ten days ago. Models that look more refined will probably come out later. There’s a manual in here.” He showed a sheet and offered it to Laurie so he could put in the envelope.

It was obvious Laurie was working out a way to accept this information. He nodded warily. "OK."

Qingying passed Laurie the paper and turned away to Roseline to rebalance himself, letting the owl step onto his arm before looking back at Laurie.
"You can be suspicious of me," he said. "After all, making you not suspicious of me was not the purpose."
Wait that was probably confusing.
