The worst part is that Dave is more excited about seeing my sister, Darcy, than I am.
You honestly thought I would? oh Seb.. you still need to learn more about when I’m joking, apparently.
Yeah, I thought you would. I don’t pay much attention to joking. That’s Dave’s forte.
Calm Seb, I have no intents on shipping her to your house anyway.
Oh come now, Seb, you love Mini Z just as much as she loves her ‘Uncle Bassy’.
Now see, you do understand that teenagers are no fun.
I’m just not great with kids. And seeing as Dave’s still going to be looking after kids in some way and I’ll be the one at home with her, nope. Not happening.
That seriously doesn’t make any sense.
Hermits are people too!
Yeah I know we do, but we have a master bedroom for a reason too. I’m just saying, you threaten to sleep in there like.. all the time, and I dunno, it just gets annoying. I wish you’d quit it.
They’re spelling papers. It’s not hard, it’s just tedious. You could maybe have a little sympathy, you know. Not like you ever have to grade anything.
If I’m so annoying I should probably sleep in there anyway. I wouldn’t want my annoying to rub off on you like everything else does.
No, I don’t have to do anything to that degree of tediousness. I just have to write essays on court cases and study them and stay awake in lectures and then come home and make sure everything’s perfect. And some days I have to give a crap about other people. On others, I have to make sure my businesses aren’t being murdered by the psychos who took them over. But poor hand, y’know.
… I’m going to the spare room and you’re not stopping me.
I feel like maybe you don’t totally get what ‘hermit’ means.
But yeah, you’re right. I’d miss you too much to let you go anyway. I’d have to come over and punch all the other hermits so I could have you all to myself.
Surely if all the hermits came together… I don’t know. Hermit friendship. They can ignore each other and hate on each other but there’d still be some emotional support there.
… You really think so? Good. When Mati misbehaves during her teenage years I’ll ship her to you and PB for a week~
… I’d rather you didn’t.
…. always gotta play the spare room card, don’t you? Fine. My hand’s cramped up from grading papers, but okay. Letter. On it.
We have a spare room. Not sorry for using it. I didn’t realise grading papers was that hard for you. Thank you.
It is. Especially once they hit the teenage years. I dread when Mini Z turns 13.
I don’t know. Might be fun.
Hah, thanks. I should hope so after eight years.
