Re: Kit & Tory: Area 52
A sense of humor was a good thing, in Tory's estimation. Not just because he had an overdeveloped one, but he thought it was the kind of thing that let you know where you stood with a person. Kit laughed at his jokes, even if they were dumb and self-deprecating; that could only be a good sign. "He's also not very good with the asking-people-for-money thing," he said, continuing their oddly-third-person conversation about himself, which to be fair, he had started. "Probably how he ended up in Repose, you know?" Another smile. "But think of the possibilities, right? Name-brand coffee."
"I would've gone with birdwatching, along those lines," Tory said, noting that Kit really didn't give anything away. It was simultaneously frustrating and challenging, the way any good puzzle would be. Tory liked questions where you had to work at the answers, he didn't like to have anything handed to him. But he was also insatiable in his curiosity. "But by all means, shatter my expectations: swing dancing? Hang-gliding? If I said, 'hey Kit, let's get together next week and do something fun, but you have to decide,' where are you taking me?"
