Re: On the train: The Schoolboy/The Witch
That was something at least, and although Hugh supposed there was the chance that Aedan was lying, he didn't feel like he was. And instinct was really all he had to go on, so he'd go with it.
"I've never ..." well, perhaps that was obvious. "Repose is different from most places I've been I suppose."
It was the easiest way to say that he'd never really met anyone that wasn't human, or who was not strictly human - at least not that he knew of. Perhaps he had after all, and it had just never been something he'd been aware of until now.
The question took him off guard, but he considered it. "I - It's a personal question I suppose, but I don't know that it's too prying," he thought about the young boy he'd been during the train ride. In some ways he felt as if he were nothing like that boy, but that was too easy an answer. "I think we both care about what people's opinions are of us, although I have never been a good rule follower. And as headboy, I think he definitely must have been better at that. Or more conventional maybe?" He tilted his head considering other aspects. "We both liked dancing," he gave Aedan a quick smile. "And I think probably, we might both be romantics, although his was buried a lot deeper than mine. Probably all that rule following."
