Nikolas looked from side to side, a conspiratorial look on his face, and he left his perch on the desk to join Lucy near hers. Drawing up next to her, with a disregard for space that usually came when one considered someone a friend, he gave a sly smirk. Honestly, he was probably being a bit overly familiar with her, and if Nikolas didn't know himself better he'd say he was almost flirting with Lucy.
She was just interesting, that was all. He was enjoying this talk, and she seemed to be, too.
"Actually, it's not all that silly. I don't think so at least," he began, sitting comfortably against the desk. "I figure since I'll be breeding these creatures, I could probably eventually come up with something completely new. It'll take a long time, I'm sure, but it could be worth it. Make something useful."
