It's OK, Mahra nudged him with a shoulder. I'll still know.

“We can try,” he suggested with a soft nod. “This way we can know whether I’d be able to perceive and understand you if Laurie and I are apart, and you try to reach me.”

He grinned. Let's try it!

He dipped his head. After a short pause, he looked over at Laurie’s cigarette, present more in his mind than focusing on its amber glow.

Laurie turned his head over his shoulder to expel a large cloud of smoke, avoiding getting it in Mahra or Qin's faces just by pure force of habit. Smokers had a peculiar kind of etiquette as Qingying had observed over the past little while.

Smoking in bus stops and sheltered areas was fine (despite the by-law signs, shut up) as long as they were empty. You yielded to a non-smoker, always, and you learned how to direct your breath with the wind to prevent large billowing clouds of nicotine and death chemicals flowing into people's lungs. You never inhaled around children and strollers, keeping your cigarette by your side and out of the way until they passed.

Smokers also tended to group together, and it was very much a social thing. They immediately had something to talk about, if someone needed a cigarette it opened up a conversation, and Laurie, as grumpy as he was, was included in that little bubble. Those who quit smoking immediately noticed the difference. Breaks at work seem more pointless, there's less reasons to go outside, and you lose those few minutes standing by your buddies shooting the shit.

Not that Laurie had any buddies, but, you get it. There was more to the habit than simply sticking a tube in your mouth, is the point, and it applied to Laurie as well. He looked back at Qingying and caught his eyes, brows arching slightly. He gestured to the cigarette. "What, you want one? They're just Bonds." He flashed the pack, which had a Philip Morris logo on it. "They'll tear out your lungs at a bargain."

Also don't smoke kids, you will get cancer and die from all the cyanide and formaldehyde and shit in these things. Just say no peeps.

Qingying simply blinked and brought his gaze up to him. “No,” he answered softly; he had never asked for one.

Laurie flicked away the ashes, simply shrugging. "Alright."

Qingying lifted his head and looked up at the sun, judging the time while not being in a hurry to leave. He usually possessed a reliable awareness of time and its passing.

As one aged, though, that perception changed.

Perhaps, if he continued to ‘live’, a day would simply become a speck – as minute as the scattered ashes of Laurie’s cigarette.

"What're you thinking about?" he tilted his head.

He returned his gaze to him and smiled softly.
"You mentioned that I had scared you..."

He shrugged. It hadn't seemed to matter.

“What were you scared of?” He asked just as softly.

Laurie pressed his lips together. "Nothing," he shook his head and smiled.

He returned a smile. “You said it two times… and expect me not to ask?” It was a gentle enquiry, not at all teasing.

He sighed and wound his hands together. "I don't like not having control of myself, that's all."

Qingying considered his words. "I think... I do not like that, either."
