There's been a lull just long enough for Elle to grow restless. If anything good came out of being so exhausted so much of the time, it was that it had kept her occupied.

So to cure this newfound energy, she's turned to practicing. She's had plenty of opportunity to train with her abilities, however – the one thing she doesn't have to do anymore is run away. And as she'd been reminded, she could stand to be faster.

Jogging, it turns out, works to make her physically exhausted. But when collapses, still panting, close to the shoreline of the lake, her mind is still as loud as it was before.

He's been sitting on a large rock near the water for a while, occasionally picking a pebble out of the handful he's holding and tossing it into the lake while he mulls over the problems they're facing.

Sam hasn't gotten any further toward solving them, either, so spotting Elle a little way down the shoreline is a welcome distraction -- for several reasons.

He drops the rest of the pebbles to the ground and slides down from the rock, then dusts his hands on his jeans before starting towards her.

"Hey."

"Hell of a workout," he observes.

Sam hunkers down beside her, rather than make her look up at him.

"In general, or in particular?"
gavemea_45: (hm?)

[personal profile] gavemea_45 2013-07-05 04:27 am (UTC)(link)
"Well, yes," Sam concedes, "but I meant are you, like, training for a race or something?"
gavemea_45: (hm?)

His brows furrow a bit.

"By running?"

Somehow he doesn't think that's what she means.

Sam looks her over for a second.

"You know," he adds, "if you stay still too long after a run like that, you're going to get stiff muscles."

"Well, that's one way to do it."

He stands, and offers her a hand up, if she'll take it.

"Want to walk it off?"

He pulls her up and lets go without making an issue of her hesitation.

"So you are training, sort of. Is it more a speed kind of thing, or an obstacle course kind of thing?"

Sam starts to walk, slowly, beckoning for her to fall in with him.

"Usually not a bad plan."

The grass under their feet is soft; the packed earth, firm.

"Any point in me asking who they are?"
gavemea_45: (hm?)

"X?"

She's got every bit of his attention now.

"What's going on with X?"
gavemea_45: (I'm not gonna forget)

[personal profile] gavemea_45 2013-07-14 03:15 am (UTC)(link)
"Okay."

Secrets, he gets. Especially ones that hit close to home.

Still --

"Just -- if there's anything I can do that'd help, you'd tell me that, right?"
gavemea_45: (I'm not gonna forget)

[personal profile] gavemea_45 2013-07-14 03:41 am (UTC)(link)
"I'm glad. That she has you, I mean," he rushes to add.
gavemea_45: (hm?)

[personal profile] gavemea_45 2013-07-14 04:08 am (UTC)(link)
"Hence the running. Right?"
gavemea_45: (hm?)

[personal profile] gavemea_45 2013-07-16 03:02 am (UTC)(link)
Sam considers her for several seconds.

"Do you want to?"
