[Dictated]

 It is summer again already.

[Will sounds thoughtful and a little nostalgic today.]

At home, this used to be the time of year when all of my brothers and sisters were home. We helped with the yardwork and the garden.  And I went fishing and camping with my brothers a lot.

Sometimes I went out on bike rides to visit all the old churches around.  [A thoughtful pause.] There were rather a lot of them.  I had quite the collection of brass rubbings at home.

I wonder.... It might be fun to go out on a little adventure like that.  Nothing dangerous, like these expeditions I hear about.  Just some exploration and fun.

You sound pretty young. I can understand wanting to have some summer fun, [though it isn't Bruce's thing, at all] but I think you should have some adult supervision, especially if you plan on being out over night.

I'm not trying to baby you. [Bruce is somewhat apologetic, but still firm.] You're still very young, though. It's best, if you have someone there who can help you, in case there's an accident.

Are you issuing a castle-wide invitation? I guess your parents aren't here?
beastisbeauty: (thinks)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-12 12:48 am (UTC)(link)
I'm sorry. I'm sorry you're separated from them.

[Bruce breathes evenly, because the thought of this boy being taken from his family threatens to bring out his anger.]

There's a lot of people here. There must be a few, at least, who enjoy being outdoors for it's own sake...or even a survival exercise of some kind.
beastisbeauty: (grins)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-13 03:48 am (UTC)(link)
What tasks are you hoping to complete?

[The boy sounds very serious and Bruce hopes no one is placing too heavy burdens on him.] I'm not sure I'm comfortable with the thought that someone has a "purpose" for me.

[It's almost enough to make Bruce volunteer.]

I'm sure something can be arranged.

Those'd be useful skills to have...knowing when to act and what to say. I don't think they I know those things often enough. You don't talk like you're an ordinary young man.
beastisbeauty: (grins)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-15 01:42 am (UTC)(link)
How are you different? Smarter? [It's something Bruce can relate to and sympathize with.]
beastisbeauty: (Default)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-15 04:41 am (UTC)(link)
[Bruce winces in sympathy.]

I'm sorry. I know that's difficult. Just remember you're more defined by what you do, than what you are. Not being human doesn't have to be a bad thing.

I'm not even going to claim to understand that. What law? Scientific law or man made laws?
beastisbeauty: (grins)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-17 06:29 am (UTC)(link)
I know magic exists, but not much else. I'm better with science.

[Bruce calls that force gravity, but he knows that's not what the boy means.]

People have called that force a lot of different things. Not to be skeptical, but this force tells you what and who you are and gives you some sort of duty? Sounds pretty intense for thirteen.

That doesn't sound like it'd be easy to balance with going to school.

[The words are flippant, but his tone is sympathetic.]
beastisbeauty: (pouty)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-19 04:04 am (UTC)(link)
What about here? Is there a school here for the children?

[Bruce is still horrified at the idea of children being at the castle's whims.]
beastisbeauty: (Default)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-23 06:29 am (UTC)(link)
That's...not really enough. Education is important.
beastisbeauty: (grins)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-24 04:53 am (UTC)(link)
Anything is better than nothing. [Bruce grins wryly.] Do a lot of kids use the library?
beastisbeauty: (grins)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-25 03:01 am (UTC)(link)
[Bruce relaxes some. Unless he plans on starting a school, which he doesn't, there's not much he can do. It's not as if he has any authority to get kids into class.]

Well, I'm glad some of them, at least, are learning. Is there a lot of things kids like to do here?

[He's not entirely sure what it is that kids like to do, honestly.]
beastisbeauty: (grins)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-26 03:54 am (UTC)(link)
Good activities, but I don't see them appealing to most kids on a regular basis.
beastisbeauty: (grins)

:D

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-27 05:49 am (UTC)(link)
Don't worry. Average is over-rated. I never could figure out what kids were thinking, when I was one.
beastisbeauty: (grins)

[personal profile] beastisbeauty 2013-06-28 05:23 am (UTC)(link)
Well, of course. Children are people too.

[There's a smile in her words that the can probably hear.] It would be fun. An adventure.

That sounds like a good idea. Best to keep active and not dwell on... our current situation, right?
hatedbyfanboys: (✫ maybe; hopeful)

[personal profile] hatedbyfanboys 2013-06-13 04:17 am (UTC)(link)
That's a good outlook to have.

You're pretty mature for your age.
