Elle is curled up into one side of the couch, head leaned against the arm, sparks snapping around her neck. Farrah, who has chosen to settle on her stomach, is watching the sparks crackle, head moving back and forth very slightly as the electricity flares and flashes on her skin.

Fortunately, she hasn't resorted to batting her paw at them.

That probably wouldn't be pleasant for anyone.

Likely not.

This may also explain why Steve McQueen is watching them both intently from his perch on the cat tree.

X would join him, but she was planning on sitting on the other side of the couch.

It is comfortable there.

And eventually he will sneak over to join them. Being left out is not fun. (For a cat.)

X's head turns rather faster than it usually does, and her response follows hard on its heels.

"Yes."

Beat.

"It is always okay."

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-09 11:13 pm (UTC)(link)
X doesn't quite frown, but it's close.

"Elle."

Beat.

"You are not okay?"

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-11 02:50 am (UTC)(link)
X hesitates, frown growing deeper.

Then --

"I am allowed to ask?"
cutting_edgex23: ([NXM] younger than you'd think)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-11 03:21 am (UTC)(link)
"Okay."

X falls silent, though.

She is not sure how to ask.
cutting_edgex23: ([NXM] I do not understand)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-11 04:14 am (UTC)(link)
X is quiet for a few long moments.

Then she stretches out her foot and nudges Elle's leg.

Gently.







"I know I do not."

If that is possibly relevant.
cutting_edgex23: ([mono] awkward)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-11 10:08 pm (UTC)(link)
X hesitates.

"I am not very good at guessing. Either."

Beat.

"Figurative language is confusing."

For one.
cutting_edgex23: ([TX] straightforward)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-12 02:09 am (UTC)(link)
X looks a little startled, but --

"The way I talk?"

It's not like she has to think hard about it, really.

"Yes. But I do not have to talk to people who make fun of me."

She pronounces those last couple of words very carefully. Certain expressions are not a natural part of X's daily language. Go figure.

"People have explained. Before."
cutting_edgex23: ([older] calm bandage)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-12 02:39 am (UTC)(link)
"I do," X says, matter-of-factly. "When they are my friends."

That is true.
cutting_edgex23: ([mono] awkward)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-12 03:07 am (UTC)(link)
X's shrug is one-shouldered, quick, and a little awkward.

"If it does not hurt you -- "

She pauses, looking for the right words. The ones she settles on are --

"It is okay. But it is different. If you mind."
cutting_edgex23: (Default)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-12 03:36 am (UTC)(link)
X frowns, just a little.

"About you?"

Beat.

"Or to you."

They are different.

Right?
cutting_edgex23: (Default)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-12 03:40 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh."

X absorbs that.

Then, carefully --

"But you know. That they are lying."

Beat.

"That is important."

Especially if they are plotting.
cutting_edgex23: ([mono] awkward)

[personal profile] cutting_edgex23 2012-12-12 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
"Oh."

X does not know what else to say.

So she sits quietly instead, at least for a few moments.

"But you want to?"
