Del and I were in the living room

Del and I were in the living room. He was playing with his earth. I was laying on the couch. Honey was laying on my feet.

That was when Cyan and Cole came back.

Del jumped up when they opened the door.

I pointed to Cyan. "You're covered in flour. I know that." I raised an eyebrow and turned to Cole. "What happened to you?"

"We worked a kids birthday party," Cole replied. "I got paint and food coloring all over myself."

Del's jaw dropped. "Was it fun?"

Cyan nodded. "We're about to jump in the shower."

"At the same time?" Del asked.

I sat up. "She has a magic shower in a box."

Del's eyes bulged out of his head. "You can't be serious! There's no way a shower could fit in a box!"

"Terminals have a bottomless pit for storage," Cole explained.

I nudged Honey off of me. "Before I forget, do you have a pair of shoes I could borrow?"

Cole looked at me sideways. "What for?"

I got my shoes out from under the couch to show him the soles. They had holes in them. "I need to get new ones."

Cy jumped. "Sweet Minicha, Wyatt! How did you manage that?"

"He always wears the same shoes until they don't fit or get too worn out," Del replied.

"So, these are the only shoes you have?" Cole took them from me.

"If we knew, we could've taken care of it sooner." Cyan took a long breath.

Del shrugged. "If you tried to do that too soon, you wouldn't have gotten very far. Trust me."

Cole raised an eyebrow. "Anyway, I don't think I have anything that'll fit you, but I think I have a pair that'll work well enough for you."

"Do you need money?" Cyan asked.

Del winked. "Hannah took care of that for us after you left."

"You think you two can handle it by yourselves?" Cole pushed his hair out of his face. "I have a show at night, but I can go with you in the daytime."

"We can take care of ourselves." Del came and wrapped his arms around me. "We're not kids anymore!"

"Have fun then," they said before they went to shower.


***


We left to find a shoe store around nine or so. Cyan and Cole were still passed out from the things they did yesterday.

Cole left me a pair of shoes before we left yesterday. They were a bit big, but they'd work well enough. I didn't think Del had any extra shoes, but I wouldn't want to wear them anyway. They were bigger than mine or Cole's.
