Toby chuckled a little bit. "If I'm not mistaken, some women think heels are a little uncomfortable, anyway, right?" Siobhan always had. When they'd been together he only recalled her ever dressing up once, and that was at their wedding. "And besides, with the gown, no one would even see the glass slippers, right?" he asked with a tiny smile. He leaned against the tree he was standing beside and watched her expression. She'd been thinking about something negative, and he figured it probably had something to do with Mike. He wanted to ask, but he didn't. "I'm sure they're funny," he offered. "You've always been able to make the girls laugh, and I think you're pretty funny."
For a moment, Toby was quiet, then he laughed a little bit. "If they'd set their minds to it, they probably could have gotten me to dress up as Maid Marian. But fortunately, they didn't really put their minds to it. At least beyond what it took to get me to dress up altogether. Initially, I was going to come in my normal clothes, just kind of as a chaperone, but they wouldn't have that, so then it was going to be the Phantom. But... well, we all see how that turned out." Those girls basically had him wrapped. It was both good and bad, considering the trouble they tended to get into. "Touche. Alright, alright. No teasing me. Geeze." He pretended to be put upon, but really just smirked.
It must have been nice, having a best friend. Of course, Toby'd had close friends in the past, but for most of his life he was moving around, so a best friend was something he'd always lacked. "You guys have been friends for a long time, hm?" he asked her, then laughed when chivalry was mentioned. "With all the business he went through trying to save Maid Marian? He's the posterboy for chivalry," he joked.
The movement of Kori's fingertips to her ears made him arch an eyebrow, but he decided that half of what he appreciated most about her were the little things that made him wonder, so he didn't ask. To him, she was the most interesting person in the compound. But once again, it was something that went unsaid. "Snow White was second, but Cinderella effortlessly attracted all those woodland creatures," he pointed out with a little smile and a shrug. "Also, she was always Elisa's favorite."
With a humorless laugh, he nodded his head. "Inhibitions tend to be thrown out the window, don't they?" he asked, looking around for the suspected people in question. The mention of the fire made his laughter turn awkward. "I hate fire," he admitted. "The girls are making me a little anxious right now, but they don't share the same distaste I have for fire, so... I like to let them have their fun. As long as they're careful." But right now, he couldn't go get them to stop them.
