Time folded her arms and looked him straight in the eye. "I told you already, the name's River Jones." She took another sip of tea, desperately wishing she could explain why she acted this way... Sort of. But she didn't know this boy, she shouldn't have told Alicia. But once she was cleaned up and back in health, she could probably start working on finding the others... But she had no clue how long that would take. Yes, she was Time, but that didn't mean she could keep track of time, not really. Not in this human form anyway, she wasn't used to it, yet. The missing feeling of the swirling, moving, constantly changing vortex. The constant shifting of paths and choices. She missed it.
Hi, Pugs? Haha welcome to KW :D
'God, Mitch if you're going to make yourself uncomfortable for no reason you might as well just stop caring. Get a hold of yourself, it doesn't even matter if you're uncomfortable, do something productive like take charge. ' I thought to myself.
I stood up straight and cut my eyes to her, " Oh yeah Tree girl? What makes you all high and mighty? You can act all you want but the dirt and leaves in your hair suggests that you're pretty kicked to the ground. So," He took a second to stretch his words " Tree girl. What do you want me to call you if I have not had the highest of honors to know your name?"
I tensed and then shifted to make myself seem bigger, tougher, like I wasn't as fragile as my thoughts led me to be. I realized I might freak the girl out and remembered it was probably best to be nice if i wanted to figure out how to get home.
I gave small smile and nervously ran a hand through my hair and slumped into a shy posture, it'd be best to act approachable.
