So he held his breath as she approached his book, eyes full of worry as she reached out to turn the page. He'd never be able to forgive himself if he hurt her feelings, accident or not. Hurting feelings was the very last thing Alfie Adair ever wanted to do. It's why he usually kept quiet and observed. You couldn't hurt feelings if you didn't involve yourself. But. But.

But she was smiling now? And ..... he hadn't ruined everything (yet)?

Unable to help himself, Alfie met her grin with a terribly shy one of his own, wanting to hide behind his hands, but resisting the urge (mostly because he was still using them to hold his book). "I amas ..... plantas," he tried the words for himself. "Si, yes," he was nodding a lot.
....

"You, taaam-bee-ein, amas?" he asked in return, hopeful.
Yulietta briefly wondered if Alfie was cold. He was trembling. She almost reached out a rubbed his arms the way her grandmother would on a cold rainy day, but she didn't know how he felt about physical contact.

Tucking her hair behind her ear and smiling, she nodded. "Yes," she blushed faintly. "I really really love the plants." She wanted to tell him that her favorite were herbs and that their properties fascinated her, and now with new magical ones she was excited to explore them all. Alas, she didn't have the words and settled for asking something else.

"Are you...uhm..." How do you say? She wrapped her arms around herself and pretended to shiver. "Frío...freeze...cold? Cold!" Yes, that was it. Take two! "Are you...cold?"
