HISTORY:

Advika was born to Ishir and Idika Yadav in Mumbai, close enough to the Aurangabad ruins where they were living for her dad’s archeological research. From a young age, Advi was taught to love the past. Ishir would bring his wife and daughter with him to work - where he would teach his young daughter all about ancient history, give her small brushes to ‘assist’ with unearching rocks while he pulled up treasures (under the careful eye of her mother). A passion for history and ancient artifacts was established and she’d decided at age 8 she wanted to pursue something similar. Advika, born to two muggles, had had no idea of her magical heritage and intended to go to muggle schools to study - but at age 11 she received a letter from Koldostov inviting her to study there. She was not interested, and wanted to just attend muggle school, but with great difficulty her dad was able to figure out there were other options for her - such as an exchange program at Castelobruxo in Brazil.

Advi was still nervous to go, even more so now that she would be traveling so far from her parents, but the amazon rainforest where Castelobruxo was located held such promise of ruins and study that most interested her, she decided it was worth a shot and agreed to go. She spent the majority of her first year pouting, as the ruins she’d been most excited to see ended up being the magic castle she now called home and a ruse for non magical like she had believed herself to be. But as the year went by, she found a passion for the different subjects offered as a witch - particularly an interest in the foreign languages and ancient runes.

By the time her first term ended, she was in love with the school without a doubt in her mind she would be returning. And such went on her school years, with friends coming and going and every summer spent taking muggle classes in order to keep her options open in terms of higher education. She knew she wanted to do something founded in archeology, but was torn between journalism, participating in digs, or research on what had already been unearthed. Curse breaking was something of interest for her for a while as well, but she steered away from that the more her interests focused in research and journalism.

By the time she had graduated, Advi had decided on Euro-Glyph School of Extraordinary Languages where she would major in Hieroglyphics and minor in a journalism program offered. For her study, she chose to remain in South America and relocated to Caracas, Venezuela in order to attend the campus there. After two uneventful years of study, she applied for a few internships and was astounded when she was offered a paid position assisting at her Dad's old dig site. She accepted immediately and put in for a transfer to Wizarding University in Mumbai to finish out the remainder of her studies. The best decision, as this was where she met her now husband, Suresh.

Now that the couple has moved to Wales, Advi found herself a position as a researcher with the National Museum of History, specializing in hieroglyphic translation.

Scene III
After months in denial about her own growing feelings for one Suresh Nadeem, Advika finally agrees to a first date. The pair agree to go to a museum event together.

She was telling herself rather unseccuessfully that the knots in her stomach were not due to nerves. She had not been anticipating this evening since Sur invited her to go. And she certainly had not said yes because she was interested in dating him, it was just... she had been wanting to go this exhibit. And... maybe spending an evening alone with her in a date setting would show him that she was as dull as a doorjamb and certainly not a potential partner.

It was definitely not because she had already completed and entirely been charmed by him. They were just friends.. yes.

And that was absolutely the reason she'd obsessed all day over exactly what to wear. She'd settled on a cropped sleeveless t-shirt, dyed a vibrant blue, the neckline beautifully embroidered, and paired it with a pair of linen pants. It was not too terribly fancy, but she thought the color complimented her nicely which made it for it. Besides, the museum was nothing fancy - any of the other options she had pulled for consideration had been far too fancy. She put her hair half back, leaving a few tendrils around her face but clipping a good portion of it back, and did a simple layer of natural make up. She considered fussing over herself more but... deciding she was overthinking the outing far too much, the young woman excused herself from her dormitory and went outside.

They'd agreed to go to the museum together from the school, so while she itched to walk around to get rid of the nervous energy, she found a bench near the front of her dorm and sat down, looking around to admire the foliage. She was... far too early, but it was either hurry up and wait down here in the fresh air, or upstairs... with her dorm mates casting her knowing looks every few moments.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Suresh had hardly dared to believe it when Advika finally agreed to go out with him. Oh sure, he had indeed spent a great deal of time trying to convince her but he always had been shot down. Rather than being disappointed, he had taken each of those times and turned it into a motivational one. Who says a determined nature didn’t pay off? Sur knew Advika would not be able to resist the offer to visit a museum at least, and the idea had struck him in a moment of sheer shrewdness. Afterwards it crossed his mind that she may have only accepted the offer for that reason but had pushed off that negative thought. In his book, it was a huge win!

The entire day seemed to have purposely dragged on and Suresh found himself restless and unable to concentrate in each of his classes. Thankfully he had great friends who would provide him with notes later on. The moment his final class finished, he sprinted up to his dorm to get ready for the big moment. His attire had been carefully thought of so it was easy for him to slip into it after freshening up: a pair of blue jeans, a crisp white tee shirt with his black blazer over it. He combed his hair neatly and spent a fair amount of time checking himself out in the mirror to ensure that there wasn’t a single piece of lint on his clothing.

Suresh decided that he looked great. “A complete catch,’’ he told his reflection. “She won’t be able to take her eyes off you!’’ Done dressing, the young man casually as possible made his way in the direction of Advika’s dorm. He knew he was rather early but it was bad manners to keep a lady waiting. That was why he was completely surprised to see her waiting on a bench for him. Still, a huge, warm smile formed as Sur headed for her. “Hi!” No, there was no need for him to mention their earliness. To him, it just meant that he’d have a lot more time to spend with her. “You look stunning. Not that you look any different on any other occasion. You look more so today.” And he was going to shut up now.

She'd just leaned herself back against the bench, taking in a deep breath of the air and was considering going through a stroll just through the mini garden outside her dormitory, when Suresh's voice surprised her and she hopped up from the bench and turned his way. She was glad for him to have not mentioned how early they were, but a little embarrassed she'd been caught having let the anticipation get the best of her. That seemed... not a good start with convincing him today she was not interested and a terrible choice. Which... were totally two accurate statements or so she told herself. But her embarrassment only lasted for a moment, as she was quickly distracted by the charming smile on his face as he greeted her. How was it possible for someone to be as sweet and handsome as Suresh?

A slight blush tinted her own cheeks at the compliment, as she silently willed it to go away whilst still returning the compliment with a small giggle at the adorable beginnings of a ramble. "Thank you. Nice of you to say. You look really nice too." Adjusting her bag on her shoulder, she gestured out towards the path off campus and towards their destination. "Should we go?"

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Did… did he startle her?

A look of uncertainty crossed his face but it was brief. Had Advika really been waiting for him? And for how long? There was a mixture of emotions that included wonder and fondness. While he wouldn’t mention their earliness now, he certainly would tease her about it in the future; he’d tease her about being eager to see him. Just seeing her right now gave him a good feeling about the ‘date’ they were going to have. Sur was also confident that it would open the door to many more. Aside from that, what he most anticipated was getting to know her.

Sur’s lips twitched the moment it registered the blush but he forced himself not to let himself grin about it as he wasn’t looking to put Advika in a spot. At least he made her giggle with his rambling. Maybe he should ramble more often. He’d do anything to hear that sweet giggle again! “It’s the truth. And thank you!” Suresh was quite tempted to hold out his arm for her to take but thought the better of it. There was no use making Advika uncomfortable. “Yes, after you.” The young man easily fell into step beside her. “So… are there any particular exhibits you really want to look at today, Advika?” He really was trying not to stare at her but it was so difficult!

His decision to not have teased at this particular moment was probably a good one, as this was new territory to Advi and she was easily spooked. But the fact Suresh brushed over both her own earliness and the blush tinting her cheeks immediately put her more at ease, and some of the tension in her muscles relaxed ever so slightly.

Adjusting her bag on her shoulder, she followed along after him, her hands slipping into her pants pockets just for something to do with them. Hmm, exhibits she was particularly looking forward to? In truth, her little nerdy heart was excited for everything on the agenda for the day but saying as much did not really spark much for conversation. So she dug a little deeper, mentally combing through the website list. "Hm. Well I've heard this particular museum has a rather impressive array of ancient egyptions embalming tools. I'm a bit fascinated to see the real pieces. But I also hear they have acquired a collection of ink brush paintings. What about you?"

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Suresh wanted to do everything right to show Advika that he was serious about her. The reluctance in her screamed at him everyday but he usually glazed over it. Not teasing Advika was a method he was using to make her feel comfortable around him, to let her get comfortable with him. As much as Sur wanted that to happen, he was in no way going to rush her. Patience was a virtue.

The young man, smiling slightly, turned his head a bit to take in his date’s profile - a rather dashing one he would say. Embalming tools? This goddess was interested in embalming tools? Whatever response Suresh had been expecting, that had not been it. “That sounds interesting!’’ came his remark after recovering from his surprise. “I’ve never even seen any sort of those tools before so it’ll be something.” Now the duo had approached the vast iron gates of the university and Suresh turned onto the street, in the direction of the museum. “Ink brush paintings I can definitely get behind though.” What was he looking forward to? “I read - on the museum’s website - that there’s a collection of written materials from the ancient times.” Suresh looked around at Advika, his face lit up. “Just imagine we get to see what early writings and languages were like in various cultures before they evolved!”

His momentary silence at her response did not go unnoticed by Advi, and she turned her eyes towards him and grinned, before giggling again. "But a bit of an odd thing to look forward to isn't it?" She was fully aware her interests were... unexpected. But it was the occupational hazard of being a daughter of two archaeologists. "My parents took me to a site where they had found one once. I didn't get to see the artifact itself but my dad managed to leave a rather perfect imprint of it's shape in the dirt." Which had almost been even more fascinating to her. Ink brush paintings were certainly a more wide spread interest.

His excitement over similar things that interested her was endearing, and she found herself softening already and forgetting her goal of the day of being aloof and trying to make him disinterested. It didn't occur to her before that this was a dangerous game she'd chosen to play, apparently forgetting how Suresh was effortlessly charming and in short interactions he usually managed to worm his way into her thoughts. How was she going to manage after a whole afternoon together? "I hadn't seen that. That does sound fascinating! I wonder how busy it'll be today too then." She couldn't imagine people not wanting to flock to that.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

That giggle! Had he just died and ascended to the heavenly abode of the angels? Was this an Angel welcoming him there? Suresh shrugged a bit. “Honestly? Yes. It wasn’t what I expected to hear. Not that I’m stereotyping you,’’ he added hastily. He was going to be truthful with Advika even in the smallest ways. This was just another strategy of his to chip away at the solid brick wall she seemed to have put up around her. The young man was interested in stories of Advika’s earlier years just as much as he was interested in her present one. “Did your parents take you often to their sites then?”

Oh? Then him being himself was working then? That brick wall was already coming apart? Sur would be beyond thrilled to know this, even if that metaphoric wall could take ages and ages to crumble into dust. It didn’t matter; every cell in his body was telling him to be patient and to let things run its course. One should trust their gut feelings, right? “Are you adverse to crowds?’’ Suresh asked in concern. Perhaps she was a bit introverted or perhaps crowds gave her anxiety? There was so much to learn about her! “I don’t think it’ll be that bad since it’s a weekday. Saturdays are a lot busier.”

She smiled at him in a hope to soothe any worry he might have felt over a potential offense. There was none taken, and she was glad he was fine with being honest in their conversation. "Most people don't. I think it's probably weird to hear anyone say they're looking forward to seeing anything relative to death but... as I see it, these tools were used to preserve and honor the lives of people who had previously lived - people who were cared about. Every culture has their different way of honoring their ancestors; I'm interested in seeing and learning about them all." It was hard to keep a sparkle from her eyes when thinking about her years with her parents and all of the sites she'd gotten to go to. It had been frowned on by some, but once an exception had been made and Advi showed how curious - yet cautious - she was, it had been less and less of a problem for her to frequent the areas. "Not right away, but by the time I was 8 I was going every day. My maan home schooled me so the sites were my classroom. I was.. really very lucky in my upbringing." And it really hadn't been a surprise to anyone that this was the field she had wanted to pursue herself. "What made you want to pursue your field?"

Advi hadn't quite meant to sound concerned about the crowd - the only thing it could really hinder was their ability to see everything, but there were other days they could go back if that were the case. So she shook her head. "I don't love crowds, though I'm not sure if anyone does. But they don't particularly bother me either." No fear there. "Excellent point. You chose the day well then." She smiled at him again, before looking towards the building looming ever closer. It was hard to contain her excitement.

The nerd.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

There had been no offense taken on his part. Secretly, he doubted she would ever offend him; Advika was too nice to do such a thing, especially on purpose. “I don’t see it that way. I don’t see it as weird, I mean. Just… unusual. But unusual in a good way since it comes as a surprise to anyone who asks.” Suresh loved that she had surprised him, actually. There was definitely a different glow to her when she spoke with such passion; it made her love for the topic very obvious. “I like your perspective on that. There’s much to learn about history because of the way the world has evolved.” Not just humans. “There’s just one problem though: there’s so much to discover and so little time.” Suresh tried not to stare at Advika so he kept letting his gaze wander at random stuff - the bus depositing passengers at a stop, some cyclists. “It sounds as though you had a happy childhood. Productive too. It’s nice that you realised early what you enjoyed and what you wanted to study.” It wasn’t wrong if anyone realised these late in life but doing so early gave one more time to spend on whatever they liked. “I’ve always been good with numbers. Maths, Arithmancy… at Beauxbatons, I was particularly interested in Ancient Studies, Defensive Magic and Defensive Magic. I think it was somewhere in my third year that it clicked I wanted to major in Rune Study at university since I was reading everything I could find on Cursebreaking. A few years later, I figured I wanted to minor in Arithmancy. That’s it,” Sur answered with a smile. “Nothing special to it all.”

Suresh chuckled. “Have you ever seen that meme on the internet that says ‘A large group of people is called a ‘no thanks’?” And now he would always associate Advika with that meme. The young man simply smiled. Indeed he had thought well about which they would be perfect for the visit. Suresh really was trying hard to show Advika he was at least an okay guy. He led the way to the museum and the automatic doors slid open as they approached. “Shall we go locate those embalming tools first or would you prefer to start with the exhibits as we come across them?”

She was fairly certain she surprised people more often than anyone let on. There had been many people who assumed she'd go into communications, or psychology based on how much Advi geniunely enjoyed talking to people, how empathetic she could be. But while she liked people, she liked the history of them even more. All aspects, too. The portions that could make you smile due to the knowledge gained, and those that could make you cry as well as every culture had it's tragedies. It seemed that when she focused more on the latter, that was when people really thought her the most out of the ordinary. It didn't bother her though. "That's a positive way to look at it. That it's just different. Thank you." For some strange reason, she found she did care in this moment and was pleased to find that he did not find her odd. She really wasn't doing a very good job of this distancing thing was she? She laughed at his remark, in full agreement there really was too little time. "Which is why we just have to make the most of the time we do have. Thank you for inviting me to this today. This is a good place to continue our journey for knowledge."

She couldn't argue with him about her childhood either. She'd been well loved and cared for, and she'd had opportunities that others could only dream about. Even as a child, she knew there was much to be grateful for. It was hard to not be happy when one had that knowledge. "I did. What were you like as a kid?" She asked in return, before listening as he explained where his interests had come from. It was straightforward, but that didn't mean it wasn't special. "I think anytime you can find what you really want from your life is special. It sounds like you also figured it out early. We really were lucky, weren't we?"

She was not very well versed in memes, but even without seeing it the idea was enough to resonant with her. She giggled, giving a small shake of her head. "I haven't, but whoever created that sounds like my type of person." There was quite a collection of people here today as well, but at least it didn't seem... too terribly unbearable. He really was too sweet, offering to go and find her interests first. She smiled a bit brighter at him before giving a small shake of her head. "Let's do it as we come across them." Glancing between the two directions, she inclined her head towards the one with a little less humans. "Should we go the path less traveled?"

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Find her odd? Not at all. If anything, Advika was a breath of fresh air in his life. “You’re welcome.” It was a casual but sincere response to her gratitude, and Sur found himself wondering if it were common for others to find her unusual. Should he ask or… on second thought, he wouldn’t. They were discussing much already and why spoil their afternoon with such negative talks? “My pleasure. You’re the only person I know who would truly appreciate a trip to a museum. Besides, I noticed you’re usually studying and I thought you might need a break.” Even if it were just an educational outing.

“We both have the happy childhood in common, it seems. I’m the youngest - my two older brothers were and still are protective of me. They included me in most of their games, outings. My parents were not rather strict or overly protective. I took all of this to mean that I had a great family; even being that young I realised it. So, I took it upon myself to be a good child by doing as best as I could in school, in extracurriculars. Did it all for the family, I suppose. They shaped me so I can’t take any of the credit, really.” And Suresh didn’t want to. A warm smile was offered. “We certainly did.” Did Advika understand that them figuring things out early had led to them joining the same university then eventually meeting?

Suresh laughed, making a mental note that Advika preferred small groups to crowds. “They’re definitely an introvert. I’ll look up that meme for you on my phone. This museum’s bound to have free wifi.” Dark eyes scanned the place, darting from one side of the museum to the next. “Definitely! After you.’’ What exhibit will they come across first?

Perhaps no one she knew would have called her unusual to her face but.. expressions often showed surprise. Which she supposed wasn't always bad. Wait, he'd noticed her studying a lot? Advi wondered for a moment just how much attention to her he actually paid, a slight flush taking over her cheeks as she did so. "You probably weren't wrong. It's hard to remember to take a break with exams looming, however." Today was the first break she'd taken in weeks, and even then... this was still educational.

He was so sweet, giving full credit to his family for the person who he was. Advi did believe that often times most credit DID go to environment, but there was also freedom of choice on how one responded to the teachings they were raised in. "They sound lovely. Did you and your brother's always get along and were there plenty of spats over the year too? And.. you sell yourself short too. We're both lucky to have the childhoods we did, families who loved us. But it also takes your personality and your nature to decide how to respond. Realizing early you were lucky and using that as motivation to always do your family proud... that's really impressive, you know." She had been a good kid, but it was for the self gain of being able to continue to be on site with her family. It hadn't been FOR her parents.

"Okay, that sounds nice." She smiled back at him, before slipping her arm through his to lead the way the direction she'd pointed. It was definitely for the purpose of not losing each other in the crowd, and not at all because she was already enjoying herself with him more than she'd thought she would. (well, more than she had pre-determined she would.) "It looks like hieroglyphics might be first. Our lucky day, huh?"

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Suresh hadn’t even given it a thought that he had just given himself away with regard to noticing Advika and her studies. The young man was definitely not a creeper. It was just that… just that she was like a magnet - always attracting his attention towards her. It had always been that way from the very first day he had noticed her, the day when he had made an utter fool of himself. But it was settled: Advika was having some much needed educational recreation time. Mission accomplished.

Memories of his childhood and teenage years tumbled around in his brain. Unsurprisingly, there were many great ones. “There were the usual sibling spats. Minor things - who got the last chapati or who was mom’s favourite or who stole dad’s motorbike and went for a ride.” A warm smile crept across his face as he relived those. Then Advika was complimenting him and it was a happiness that welled up inside of him, unlike any other sort that he had felt before. Did this mean that this goddess was seeing him in a different light now? Instinct told him not to get too ahead of himself, to let things continue to play out. “Thank you. You’re right… there are others that have or had the same privileges as us but they just haven’t made the best of it.” So, here he and Advika were, two of the sensible and lucky ones. “I like hearing about your family,’’ Sur admitted, but left it at that should he come across as a creeper. It was an open invitation for her to always regale him with tales of her earlier life.

Okay.

Suresh was going to pass out, he was ninety nine point nine percent sure of it. Advika had actually linked her arm through his!!! He looked down at their joined arms and fell into a slight daze. This daze remained even as they came across the Hieroglyphics Exhibit. “Um… can you… read them?” Struggling for words? This was exactly what was happening.

A 'creeper' was certainly not something Advika ever would have compared Suresh too. If she had, perhaps it would have been easier to outright ignore him and whatever this magnetic attraction she was trying so desperately to reject. But... he was sweet, he was earnest and considerate. He was also rather handsome. It was incredibly difficult to ignore him.

She smiled as she listened to him talk more about his brothers, a laugh escaping her throat at the last fight listed and she turned to him with a questioning expression. "Who DID steal the motorbike?" The smile he currently wore was distracting - it was so clear how much his family meant to him, which she would be lying if she was to say that was not an attractive quality. "Absolutely. Life is what you make of it. I think nature and nurture are in a constant equilibrium. Nurture certain affects our personality, but I think there are also some traits that we're just... born with. It's the combination of the two that determines who we are. We were born into lucky circumstances, and had the good sense to appreciate that and use that as a motivation to do our families proud." His comment brought another blush to her cheek, as her arm not now looped through his came up to her face to push her hair behind her ear as she giggled softly again. "You'll regret telling me that, I'll probably bore you now about them. They're one of my favorite topics. I loved my education at Castelobruxo and Brazil was... amazing. But the homesickness... there's nothing like being back here and closer to my parents."

His internal reaction was entirely unknown to her, as she was trying her best to make it seem so non-chalant and not like she'd just created an entire eruption of butterflies in her stomach. Oops. Did he ask her something? "Hm?" She asked, before looking back at the portion of wall encased in glass. "Not very well. I can recognize a couple of the symbols. You?"

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

Thank you, Gods of Charm and Good Genetics! Thank you for letting Advika be aware of what a nice person he was!

Her pretty laugh was so contagious and Sur was laughing as his gaze met hers. “It was Sahil. Sahar thought it was me, and him being protective, he let me have a lecture about how I was too young and didn’t have a license. I got mad at both of them, of course. I think I didn’t speak to them for days. A couple of years later, Sahil finally told the truth while we were reminiscing on simpler times. We all had a good laugh, even mother and father.” Now, Suresh was shutting up so that he could hang on to every single one of Advika’s words. He loved listening to her. It wasn’t just her voice but also her intelligence; he was attracted to that intelligence tenfold. “I agree. Sadly, there are many times when good people make the wrong choices because of their circumstances. Like poverty, which leads to stealing.” But Advika was one hundred percent right about everything, especially regarding how they both had the proper sense. Her giggles were so much like music, did she know? The way she tucked her hair behind her ear… “Right. As if that’ll ever happen,’’ Suresh replied lightheartedly. “Do you ever think about visiting Brazil, just for a bit though?”

They were both definitely masking their true feelings then. Not to mention that this mess of a young man was currently attempting to keep himself together. His eyes were glued to the hieroglyphics despite he seemed to be seeing right through them. “Um,” Sur began, giving his head a little shake to clear his head. “Same. I think the bird represents letter A’s sound. Though I’m not sure if that sound is the long or short sound.”

Sahil and Sahar. She filed away the names of his brother, smiling a bit as he recounted more of the tale. "I imagine as adults now it's fun to go ahead and unload on past wrong doings, since we're past the point of punishment." She giggled again. "Did you get an apology then too for the unnecessary lecture?" Having siblings truly sounded like a fun experience. Once their conversation had turned serious again, she nodded her head in agreement again as he mentioned poverty. "Exactly. But I also don't think this decisions make someone a bad person, you know? Everyone has to eat, provide for their family. And sometimes the choice you don't want to make is the only one. I often think we should be finding new ways of helping people in their circumstances, instead of punishing." She would have been embarrassed had she heard his thoughts about her perceived intellect. She didn't think she was anything special. She flushed a bit again and shrugged, "you never know! I think I'm boring." Most of the time anyways. As for Brazil? "Often, but sometimes I worry wouldn't be able to leave again if I did."

The hieroglyphics at least provided a very good distraction for all that was currently happening to her. Especially when he pointed out one he recognized and she nodded. "I believe you're right." Scanning the photos, she pointed out another piece. "That's Ra. One of the more easy to recognize." As her major, she should be able to point out more… but apparently she was still too distracted from her distraction.

“That’s exactly it,’’ Suresh responded, nodding with a smile. “I think my brothers and I find those situations funny now, even if we realise how foolish we had been. I certainly feel guilty about any worry I may have put my parents through.” But it was all the proverbial water under the bridge. “Not verbally but I was treated to lassi everyday for about two weeks. That’s the closest to any apology I'll ever get.” The young man grinned. “I have no complaints though. I think it was then that my lassi obsession started. What's the worst you've ever scared your parents accidentally?” He was all ears again, hanging on to Advika’s every word. “Bad things happen to good people, yes.” Her words were telling him so much about her and Suresh already knew this much: Advika was as kind as she was wise. This just made him like her even more. So, so much more. “Giving them a second chance.” There was more nodding on his part. “Second chances can work wonders in many cases. Sometimes all someone needs is for someone to believe in them.” Advika had no cause to be embarrassed. “You’re not boring. I promise you that.” If he had added that he would willingly fall silent just to listen to her for the rest of his life, it may not come across as seriously as he meant it. Or, in the worst case scenario, be perceived as creepy and scare her away. “Surely you’d have a reason to return here?’’ Perhaps something academically? Or a friend that she couldn’t bear to leave behind?

“I’m glad I got that one right and didn’t manage to make myself look silly in front of you,’’ Sur half joked before zoning in on Ra. “The Sun God.” That much he knew. “There are so many symbols,’’ Suresh mused. “Some differ in just the slightest of ways from the others. If one isn’t careful, the incorrect meanings can be deciphered.” Suresh’s gaze left the hieroglyphics for a moment. There was something up with Advika though he couldn’t exactly place his finger on it. He lightly patted the hand linked through his. “Are you alright?” His voice was full of concern, even if his interest in the hieroglyphics was still there.

"It's good to be able to find the humor now in fights from far back then." Especially when none of it had hurt their bonds in the long run, in fact perhaps reminiscing now brought them even closer. "Hopefully your parents can all laugh about it now too. Especially when they see how well you've turned out." And probably his brother's as well, though she certainly couldn't speak to that since she did not know them. Another giggle, as she shook her head in amusement. "So you're a big fan of lassi then? At least he knew how to apologize in the way that really mattered." She teased. At his question, she paused to consider for a moment, rifling through her time with her family. "When I was around 6, my parents had taken me to a dig site with them. I had gotten so excited looking at some newly uncovered pottery, I wasn't paying attention when my parents called me to follow after them further into the site. When I realized they were gone, I went back to the refreshment tent to eat some snacks and wait for them but... I guess they didn't notice. They spent the whole day frantically going through tunnels and the site trying to find me and... I was happy as a clam with a bag of fruit snacks." She giggled again, giving a small shrug of her shoulders. "I could tell my mom wanted to scold me for not listening, but Dad wouldn't let her because he was just glad I went back to what was familiar when I couldn't see them." It had been the first time it happened, but certainly not the last. At least they'd always known where to check if she was actually lost.

It was always amazing to her how many people did not seem to understand that the easiest way to handle a relationship with another person - was simply to believe in them, give them opportunities to prove themselves. The fact that Suresh seemed to agree with her on this ideal made her heart give a couple erratic thumps, and her smile softened a bit as she nodded. "Exactly. I couldn't agree more." It said a lot about him too, and things that she liked. "Well, thank you. I certainly don't think you are either." This 'date' really wasn't going the way she had been planning, was it? But... it was going really well, which she would probably kick herself for later. "I have friends and my parents but... I have friends in Brazil too. And part of me has always hoped to get my parents to move with me. Other than them, there hasn't been any type of relationship strong enough to keep me tethered to one place or the other." Which had always been her preference, which was why she'd meant to not be getting close to him anyways because she could recognize she was in danger of him being a strong enough tether.

"It's especially hard too to know if we're ever even getting it right considering there's no one left who actually wrote these symbols. We can study and study for our whole lives, but it still only comes down to it being a translation. And translations always seems to lose some of it's original meaning. A shame isn't it?" Don't get her wrong, she could still see the important in studying - which was obviously why she had chosen this - but still, it was hard to not be a little morose about whatever hidden meanings she knew they were missing. At the touch of his hand to hers, she nearly jumped but forced herself to remain composed. The even added contact sent her stomach even more aflutter, and her face turned the smallest bit red which she tried desperately hard to conceal. "I'm okay! I suppose I'm just feeling the slightest bit embarrassed that I don't have more recognized."

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

[B]“My parents do. The things they’d worry about now are us not being happy or successful.” Advika would be correct about the past silly dramatics by the Nadeem brothers actually bonding the family even more. “Mom always lets us know verbally that she’s proud. Dad isn’t that sentimental but would find small ways to let us know that he’s proud as well.” A warm smile was offered. “Thank you.” That compliment was going to be living with him for the rest of his life. Suresh didn’t think he ever enjoyed talking to anyone about his family as much as he did to his museum date. “It’s bribery, that’s what it is! And I make sure to tell him that. But yes, I’m a lassi addict now.” There was a playful eye roll before the laughter followed. “I can just picture them panicking,’’ Sur remarked, putting himself figuratively in the shoes of Advika’s parents. “Fruit snacks your thing then?” His heart warmed considerably every time he heard that giggle. Truly it was one of the most fantastic sounds ever. “Are you closer to your dad?” There was that belief that daughters were closer to their fathers while sons were closer to their mothers. In his case, he was definitely closer to his mother.

What a pity Suresh was oblivious to the effect he was having on Advika with regard to him agreeing with her. But he hadn’t been saying those words just because he thought it would help gain entry to her good books; it was just in his nature to be understanding. And did this mean that she’d want to spend more time in his company? Of course, Suresh would push his luck but since she didn’t think he was boring… There was a huge pang of disappointment when Advika mentioned that she had hoped her parents would move with her. Maybe one day she would convince them to and she’d move to Brazil and she and him would drift apart. Did that mean that he should cease in his attempts to get her to like him? Then that stubborn and determined Suresh took over. There was no way he’d give up that easily! “You’ll end up wherever you’re meant to be,’’ he relayed rather confidently. “I wouldn’t think too much about it. I’m a big believer that the Universe gets us where we’re supposed to be.”

He knew exactly what Advika meant! “Yes, because everyone interprets something a little differently each time. Sort of like telling a story: bits and pieces are added, bits and pieces are omitted.” Sur was silent for a little while as he studied the symbols. “If you think about it, humankind is somewhat devolving. We used images to communicate in the start and it seems we’ve arrived at that again. The only difference is that we call them memes, gifs and stickers.” Oh, was that the reason she was off. Suresh shook his head, grinning. “Don’t worry about it! Someday you wouldn’t even have to think twice about what they meant.” Projecting this positivity onto Advika he was! “Shall we check out the next exhibit then?”

That was something she could likewise relate to. She supposed it was every parent's dream that their child was happy and successful, though the definitions seemed to vary from parent to parent. Like currently, her mother's view of 'happy and successful' was Advika married and on her way to motherhood. While her dad just wanted to see her finding a job she loved as much as he loved his. "It's nice that even if they show it in different ways, both are still good at showing their pride." Not having to wonder if one was disappointing their parents or not was a relief. Another laugh and she gave a nod of agreement, it did certainly sound like bribery. "But... it worked didn't it?" She teased. She almost felt bad now for how they must have felt back then, but she'd be fine and they could all laugh about it now. As for fruit snacks, she giggled and reached for her bag and pulled out a couple packets to show him, before stashing them back. "I always have some on me." At the question, she had to give some serious consideration before answering. Was she closer to one parent or the other? Her head slowly shook, "I wouldn't say so. I think I'm close to both, the relationships are just different you know? When I need practical advice, mom is my go to - she's very insightful and not afraid to give me the truth. when I just need blind encouragement, that's when it's time for an afternoon with Dad." They were both her biggest champions, and she appreciated the invidiual ways they showed that.

For the time being, Advi had no plans of moving anywhere. She had gotten her dream internship here, at the site she was most familiar with, and her studies were still going well. She supposed just talkng about it at all made her the slightest bit homesick for Brazil and all the years she had spent there. One day she'd have the confidence to go back and still return here, but for now... a trip could wait. "I'm sure you're right. And it'll be the universe's timing to clue me in on that plan." For now, she could just choose to be happy with where her life was currently.

Which is exactly what she was going to do.

See, that was exactly what she meant. She grinned and gave a nod. "You know how there's the saying "There's two sides to a story"? I've actually heard it said there are three sides: Yours, mine and the truth. With everyone that relays a story, there's just a new version." The comparison to the memes and stickers between the first pictorial communications made her giggle, but also nod in agreement. He made a good point. "Do you think one day, generations down the road, will be looking at books of our texts strung together with just... meme after meme response and have an equally difficult time figuring us out?" The thought alone made her want to giggle more as she pictured a chain of 'elmo with fire' and the 'this is fine' response. At the question of moving on, she grinned at him and nodded again. "Let's do it!"

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

That, actually, was something Suresh could relate to. He knew that certain traditions never died despite how far humankind had drifted away from ancient times when marriage was seemingly the most important thing in the world. At least with their culture. His mother was constantly asking him if he found a nice girl to settle down with. “That it is. Parents’ validation is a necessity in my opinion.” It was in that moment, Sur decided he could listen to Advika’s laugh on a loop and never get tired of it. “It worked too well, I think.’’ His eyes landed on the snack and it made him chuckle. “If we’re ever having an apocalypse event, we know you’re prepared snack-wise. Any particular fruit you're drawn to?” Fruit snacks though. The young man was never going to forget this love of Advika’s. He listened without interruption. “I like the sound of your parents. They sound exactly like mine.” These words weren’t said just because he was smitten with her, to get her to like him. They were nothing but the truth.

Maybe he was being selfish but Suresh couldn’t help but send a silent plea to the Universe, a plea for it to keep Advika here for a while. Though… though he suspected that if she left, he’d follow her, not like some kind of creepy stalker, however; more like a puppy hopelessly smitten.

Suresh could not help but grin; he was so happy in this moment that they were understanding each other. “Isn’t that the truth? Still, I think it’s quite something that we get to witness all these cultures and traditions.” What a time to be alive! “I have no doubt about that. I mean, if there could be courses taught at some institutions for memes, anything’s a possibility.” What would they come across next? Suresh led them off and would you look at that? “An archaeology exhibit!” Perfect!

There were certainly somethings that never changed. Though it was not something Advi would hold against her own mother anyways, she knew it was just her own way of showing she cared. "Agreed." But perhaps she only thought that too because she knew it was not hard to obtain that from her parents, while some had far harder circumstances. She was prepared in the case of an apocalyptic event? Advi laughed at that as well. "I can imagine fruit snacks would only get us so far." Not very much sustenance to them, even if they were caloric. As for fruit? "Dragonfruit, or Pitaya. Whichever you know it by." She preferred the flavor of the ones with the more vibrant colors, but any was still delicious. "You?" She smiled at that, giving a small nod of her head. "Then I'm sure I'd quite like yours too."

While she knew nothing of his plea, she was certain the universe would answer it. Whenever she thought of Brazil she was homesick for it, but it was nothing like everything she knew and loved here - where she was right now. Even if her parents would want to move, having the job at the site where she'd grown up was far too meaningful of an opportunity for her to pass up either. She was entirely a sentimental individual.

She nodded along in agreement, continuing to follow along after him to the next exhibit. "Oh wouldn't it be interesting to find a philosopher's stone so we could live that long." She had no interest in immortality generally, but the idea of getting to sit in on classes with future generations learning about her time period would certainly be fascinating. "Oh, excellent!" she grinned at him, moving towards one of the glass cases to peer inside.

~ Mrs. Steve Harrington ~ It be like that sometimes.

“It’s a good start, don’t you think? It’ll keep you until you can find something better.” Suresh liked to think on the positive side of things and Advika’s fruit snack obsession would come in handy one day, even if it wasn’t for a zombie apocalypse. Also, he liked this silly apocalypse conversation. “Excellent choice! It’s the pink/red colour that ropes me in to get them. My go to is always kiwi though. I usually buy myself a fresh batch each week.” Was Sur obsessed? Yes. His heart gave a tug of pleasure upon hearing that Advika had responded positively of their talk of family. At least it implied that she might not be averse to meeting his parents one day.

There was nothing wrong with being sentimental. Suresh found that it was a warm trait to have, and it was a trait that was suited to Advika quite perfectly. His eyes lit up at the thought. “Just imagine everything that we could witness…” It was a marvelous thought, the child-like awe in his voice enough to tell anyone this. Was this how vampires felt? “I don’t think I’d want to live forever but if it were for educational purposes, then that’s an entirely different story.” Suresh was immediately enamored with the archaeology tools; it may have everything to do with Advika but shhh! “Why is a dental pick important?” came his question as he eyed the object with curiosity.
