Standing outside the door to his house, she looked back at the garden quietly before turning back to face the wood. Lifting her arm she rapped on the door lightly with her knuckles before looking down at her dress and adjusting it slightly. It was high time she came to apologize again and reap what she had so stupidly sewn.

Josiah walked through his darkened corridors, straightening his tie and smoothing out his shirt as he did so, and answered the door with a small smile on his face – only to let the expression falter as he saw who it was. In some ways, he might have been wishing to see the woman again, but most parts of his psyche were inclined towards feeling adverse to having a conversation with her. It meant confronting his own improbable desires and simmering jealousy, and he was not one to deal with such things with ease. He was silent for several moments before he spoke, his voice slightly stiff.

“Good afternoon, Ms. Morrow.”

God, he hated calling her with that last name.

She had considered turning and leaving but the door swung open and she stiffened. Giving a small smile, She shook her head softly before looking up at him.

"Josiah i call you by your first name and everyone else calls me by Whitney.. I don’t see why you continue to use my last name." She could hear the tension in his voice. She hated herself for leaving things on such a rough note. 

Her fingers fiddled with the hem of her shirt as she glanced down at her shoes and pants.

When the fireworks started outside Wendy ran to hung Whitney, terrified about the noise.

((so sorry this is late but oh my gosh poor wendy))

After the initial jump at the sudden noise she peeked outside the window and smile at the fireworks. She had heard them before and always admired them to be honest. When the sudden quick footsteps startled her she turned only to suddenly be pushed and hugged. Looking down at the blue hair she smiled before petting her daughter’s head and chuckled a bit.

"Don’t worry Wendy. It’s nothing bad. "

 

"The loud pop is when they explode. Theres lots of different ones. People set them off when celebrating something. They’re really pretty right?" She gave her a smile before looking back at the window as several bright green and red sparklers went up into the sky.

Wendy nodded, but wined at the noise and looked away. “They hurt my ears.”

"Yes they can get pretty loud…" Whitney looked at her sadly before petting her softly.

"Your ears are sensitive aren’t they? You should grab a pillow and block out the sound."

Wendy nodded. “Okay.” But didn’t move to let go of Whitney.

She sighed softly before moving her hands to cover Wendy’s ears. 

Turning her head she nearly jumped when a set of black cats were set off and loud popping ensued.

-Royston smiled as he knocked on Whitney's door-

whitney-dontstarve:

Not expecting the visitor, Whitney put her bow down on the kitchen table before heading to the front door. She quickly unlocked it then opened it only to meet with Royston. Last time she had seen him was when he had broken the memory spell and left her to remember her daughter. She gave him an odd look before crossing her arms slightly.

"Yes? May i help you?"

When the air was being forced out of her she pushed against him smiling as she did so.

"Royston! Stop please! You don’t need to apologize to me… Thank you. I appreciate what you did. You have no reason to apologize." She leaned her head up and kissed his forehead. 

"Don’t cry please…."

I hit my niece…I yelled and said terrible things. I dove into your mind and removed something that could have damaged your cerebral cortex! -he was a bit of a baby when it came to hurting people that had never wronged him or his family. Hurting the innocent was something he stopped doing years and years ago-

"Royston you didn’t do much to hurt me. If you’ve apologized to Ebony then thats fine. Just…please stop." She was now gripping his shoulders and staring at him harshly.

-Royston had shame on his face, he was not like Amos. He could not just deal with what he did as he then got on the ground and bowed deeply to her. His tone low, but loud enough to let her hear- What I did, it was deplorable. It was something I’d have expected from my brother and not from myself. I have wounded your trust of me, and dishonored myself. Can you find it in yourself to forgive me? -he said as he was owning up to his actions, no excuses like Amos, he was willing to accept whatever she would do to him-

This…This wasn’t expected. She bent down before touching his shoulder lightly and smiled at him.

"It’s alright Royston. No need to apologize. You were just having….a bad day."

-He looked up at her and shook his head- I had given into my darker thoughts. I did things I cannot fully comprehend myself. -he then hugged her tightly- And I am so sorry…-he said in a whisper as she could feel a bit of his body trembling. His breathing a bit ragged as he was trying to hold back sobbing like a child-

When the air was being forced out of her she pushed against him smiling as she did so.

"Royston! Stop please! You don’t need to apologize to me… Thank you. I appreciate what you did. You have no reason to apologize." She leaned her head up and kissed his forehead.

She didn’t feel any different than she normally would. If anything she was a bit happier than usual, cherishing the day more than she normally would.

"What is it?" She flinched when another went off, gripping Whitney harder.

"They’re fireworks. Come here to the window. You’ll be less scared when you see what they look like.." Patting her on the shoulder she nudged her closer to the window.

She wined a bit before looking out the window to stare at the night sky, flinching when another went off. Wendy stared at the colors in aw, but still flinched when more were set off.

"The loud pop is when they explode. Theres lots of different ones. People set them off when celebrating something. They’re really pretty right?" She gave her a smile before looking back at the window as several bright green and red sparklers went up into the sky.
