“I have too much work to do.” Wanda replied simply, furiously working at cleaning one of the manor’s many rooms.
“Why can’t you take a day off? No one’s asking you to do this.” He said. He knew that she wouldn’t respond, or take him up on his offer, but he hoped one day she would. He wanted to see the spark return to her, but nothing happened. He had his suspicions about why she had attempted suicide that day, but he never brought that up to her.

The Spine was upset over Brianna leaving, arguably more so than when Holly left, but he refuses to let himself spiral into the same depression as before.

Lil’ Mike Mike holds onto Steve’s hand as though he would fall if he let go.
“I’m gonna kill him!” Lil’ Steve shouts, only resulting in Lil’ Mike gripping tighter.
“You’re not killing anyone.” Steve says firmly, as he reaches down and plucks the bow and arrows from his hands with ease.
“Fine. I’ll just use headbutts instead!&
The Sound of Silence Ch. 2The conversation is awkward and stilted at first, judgements already being made from the moment they convened in the living room. Tensions run high and eventually Spine has to step out, sensing his carefully built control tearing apart, unable to be so forgiving of the man who had torn out his brother’s core. He makes a feeble excuse, claiming something in the Hall of Wires needs repairs, casting a resentful glare at Ignatius before he goes.The Sound of Silence Ch. 2 by stories11
