I’ll take your word on that…since I can’t go and see for myself…I wouldn’t really go to dance or anything…just to see everyone having fun more than anything…
[She smiled, sighing slightly with relief, then moved over a little on the bed to let Moose up with her] It really is…though I think I’ve been a bit over indulged as of late…I would love to go walk in the court yard…that will probably be one of the first things I do when I get out of here.
I’m sure people will trickle in to say hello throughout the night.
They won’t even let you go out for a walk? That seems pretty harsh…
…I can’t picture you in a bow tie…at all…I’ve never been to prom…or any sort of dance for that matter…I was…and still am, too awkward…
Is that so?…well how about you tell Mr. Adler that maybe he shouldn’t be such a bad example [She spoke to Moose teasingly as she leaned over further to scratch his back, then grimaced realizing she may have overstepped her bound]…sorry…
It’s really over rated. Especially as an adult. You’re not missing out, promise.
[He laughed, smiling at her and shaking his head] No, you’re fine. He takes after me. All I hear is complaints about how I lay in bed all day… but you know, the bed is comfortable.
Really?…spending the night with an injured woman who’s being forced to stay in the hospital until Fury says otherwise…is a better way to spend tonight…than going to prom or being with…someone else?
I remember Moose…still as big as I remember [she smiled a little, reaching down and scratching him behind the ears] It’s too bad about the others…maybe I can go visit them once I’m out of here…
I’ve been to prom before… me and bowties don’t mix. My fingers get tangled and it’s just not pretty.
Yeah, well, seeing as all he does is lay on the bed all day… he’s not getting smaller. [He smiled as Moose raised his paws to put them on the edge of the bed] Of course you can, they’ll be happy to see you.
Mr. Adler…thank you, that was really thoughtful of you.
Though I don’t know if it’s possible to have too many pets.
I’m a bit… too old to be at prom and call it reasonable. This is a better way to spend the night anyways.
Well, you can make that decision once you meet the new additions. We’ve got… Moose here, as always, and the new additions Beethoven and Torque. And Bruce. Um, the turtle stayed in the room, so did the owl.
You know… I figured you’d still be in here. So, I brought company for you. And by company I mean more animals than I should ever have.
You can keep your distance all your want, your little sister came to my room all on her own. I asked nicely and everything.
You act like I did something to offend you. The girl came of her own free will. In more than one way.
Yes, it is, and I don’t think I’m wrong. Relaxing nights are good. No he’s not. Are teachers supposed to call students that?
I’m sorry, I am stepping… way out of bounds. Anyway, do you want me to bring anything?
Whatever you think, blondie. We can call students whatever we want.
Just bring yourself. That’ll be good enough for me.
Okay. Don’t call yourself that, you’re not, at all. I mean look, you’re offering to spend your Friday night entertaining me. And he’s not all bad…
Oh, that’s what you think. It’s time well spent in my opinion. He’s an asshole.
