Re: tandy & holly; the music store
Yeah, no, for Holly? The whole not self-sacrificing thing wasn't about cash, but he wouldn't be into paying, either. So, all good. Same page, and the music store absolutely felt like home to him. It was a tie-back, a reminder, something that even smelled familiar. He could totally picture his mom dancing around in the entrance-way, and he could see his dad staring at her adoringly. And, okay, okay, so he knew he totally looked at Noah the same way, but whatever. Right now? The place was empty, but it was too early for the town's teens, and the out of town people hit the store up early on the weekends. So, right, it was quiet right now, and he was taking advantage of that. And, as previously stated, he was feeling pretty fucking good. For Holly, working? Was a good thing. It made him feel like a paycheck was coming, and that felt like security. So, right. Cam show scheduled for that night, and he was budgeting and messaging Noah about switching to generic everything, and then Tandy walked in.
The store was deep, so she could just walk in further to hide her knife-antics from the view of anyone who was wandering by. But even without that? Her trick? Was totally blink and miss it, but Holly didn't miss it. Look, the whole thing with the monster under the town? It had made him more aware of his surroundings than before. And since the incident with Sunny? He was even more kinda on high alert. He wasn't panicking or anything like that, but he did notice shit.
So, right. Blink and miss it. Something shimmered brightly, and then was gone, and he lifted a brow. "Yeah. I see that. It looks like you can do your magic trick on cue now?" he asked. He wished he could turn off the buzzing on cue, but he couldn't. Luckily, it was slightly better in town, as if Repose's life and noise made the buzzing easier to deal with. But, anyway. "Are you feeling any better about it?"
