- Willow rolled her eyes when he talked about her kissing, but she knew she was blushing. "Shut up," she told him, playfully of course. When he started talking about ghosts she giggles, but she felt guilty when Sebastian asked why she hadn't gone looking for him. The truth was that she'd been afraid to even come out of hiding, and she didn't know if she'd be able to protect herself, or anyone for that matter, if she was found. "Sebastian, I..." but when Adrian came along she couldn't finish.
Willow felt a little dizzy as she looked back and forth between the boys. Their banter was funny, but she could hardly keep up with it. She had a close friend, Benji, whom she had little talks like that with but theirs was too much. She'd never heard a nickname quite like 'Icy Hot'. She cracked a smile at them but when Sebastian wrapped his arm around her shoulders she felt her face heat up in a blush. They continued their banter, going along with the ladies thing and acting like they were ready to gossip about the happenings in New York. She scrunched her nose. The only women she'd know to act like that, gossiping and talking about men, were mostly the girls in the Aphrodite cabin.
A little wave of sorrow, mostly for her friend Coralyn, washed over her at the though but when Sebastian moved his arm so he could hold her hand made her feel better. She looked up at him, yes he was taller than her, and smiled before allowing him to lead her inside.
Once inside she listened as the boys ordered their coffee. She wasn't to fond of the bitter drink. The first time she ever drank it she felt like she was going to have a heart attack. Still she ordered a cup with extra cream and sugar. And as a side... "Could I get a bowl and glass milk please?" The person taking her order simply shrugged and gave as she asked. It took her two trips because she didn't want to break the bowl, but when she had everything she took a seat next to Sebastian. She listened as they went back and forth with 'boyfriend banter' and giggled. They were silly, and she smiled at Sebastian when he smiled at her.
She continued to listen as she pulled one of the small boxes of cheerios out from her bag and poured it in the bowl, and then added some milk carefully. "Excuse me," she said, reaching in front of Sebastian for the syrup she saw at the end of the table. She poured a decent amount onto her cheerios and grabbed a spoon and took a bite. Absolute heaven.
Now, the mixture must sound incredibly disgusting but...well Willow loved it, as she had since she was four. It was by complete accident really. Her mother, bless her wherever she was now, had been pouring her a bowl and when she meant to add milk she added syrup instead, only adding milk when she'd discovered her mistake. It was Willow's favorite ever since.
The brunette paused though when Adrian asked if either of them had returned since the attack. He hadn't been able to finish the sentence, but Willow understood. "I haven't even been away from this part of the city," she said before taking another bite.
Adrian excused himself abruptly and then Willow was left alone with the boy she was trying so hard to hide her feelings for. she looked down at her bowl awkwardly before turning her pretty blue eyes to him. "Hi..."
