He was younger than her, with slightly downturned eyes and a smile that had a ruefulness to it. despite his handsomeness, he had the air of someone unused to others.

aslan was not unused to other people. she just moved at her own pace. spoke in her own way. and it never seemed to align. Waving a hand over her tea, the silver spoon stirred. “I wouldn’t insult you.” she wouldn’t insult anyone. If she disliked someone she ignored them.

it had not yet clicked that he had been joking. aslan sipped her tea, both hands wrapped around the mug so the warmth could ground her. Dark eyes surveying him. aslan had only learned small talk in their latest years- it had not come easily but work made it necessary occasionally- this was small talk. She eased back into her chair, and into the conversation. “My child. They were up all night sick, so i was up all night with them.” and it was not doing her any favors.

and then it clicked. “you were joking earlier.” right.
Cal nodded in understanding. Despite having not lived with Elsa and Ryan for quite a few years now, he remembered helping her when he'd been younger and had a few rough nights. Poor kid had had ear infections constantly. "That certainly is exhausting. Not that I have kids myself but...nephew," he clarified. Although a startling thought occurred to him that not only was he old enough to have his own kids, he was old enough to have kids who would be starting SCHOOL in a few years. As in HOGWARTS.

BIG yikes.

He blinked, startled out of his thoughts by her sudden statement. Oh. She hadn't picked up on that? He thought for a moment that maybe he hadn't made that clear, but he figured it was more likely that she just hadn't picked up on the humor.

"Oh, yes, it was a joke. I would not expect anyone to randomly start insulting me unless I deserved it," he added with a chuckle. Wait, that was another joke. Would she get that one or would that too fly over her head?
