"There are worse things to be called," he added with a chuckle. Theo watched Roxanne set the wheel in place and lock it in a with a flick of her wand. He quietly observed, only inching over a little to allow her to pass alongside him to set to her task. People didn't understand how much care, time and effort went into endeavors like this one. Most started on a lark, get so far and then give up once it becomes complicated. Not Roxanne though, he thought with an appreciative glance her way. Certainly not himself either, he was reasonably sure given the right equipment and tools, he could build anything.
"I very much doubt that," he said with a small laugh. He helped a bit for sure with a few necessary elements, the rest however was Roxanne and her alone. "Let's say 30/70," he joked. That too might be a stretch he thought. She had made an impressive machine and he couldn't wait to see it run for the first time and that it would work he had no doubt.
Stepping forward Theo reached for the dial and began to wind, he glanced back for a moment and smile. "My mistake. I've never been much of a team player, although don't teams usually have names?" he said finishing to wind and then releasing the dial and stepping back to stand alongside Roxanne, watching her reaction as the gears started to turn.
He could hear the whirl of the wheels and grinding of the gears and clicks of cogs turning and and knew it was going to work, and very satisfied and relaxed grin tugged at the corners of his lips.
