Wolfe family in Montana! Ciara displays a liking to children, while becoming suspicious at the lack of mention of Conrad’s direct family. No one ever speaks about them! She’s slowly trying to drag information out of people. Everyone adores Leon who is a delight to children and adults too! Lily finds herself stalked by an infatuated Cousin Jimmy who thinks she’s his future wife! Aunties dodge Ciara’s questioning to switch the focus to her and Leon. Ciara mentions that Lily never met her real father, and she’d like to keep it that way! She also admits that she wouldn’t mind having more children, but she doesn’t want to date anyone again because people always leave her.
Lily escapes Cousin Jimmy to chat with Leon outside. She tells Leon about how her mother used to be, and how she talked about him. She also says she thinks Leon would be pretty perfect as a dad. Spying Jimmy, she runs off to hide in the barn. There she finds Conrad also hiding from his family. Conrad manages to distract Cousin Jimmy away. Conrad asks if Lily is liking it there and Lily admits it’s a little strange being around all the normal people, but a good kind of strange. They chat a bit and Lily asks about riding one of the horses, confessing she’s a smidgen afraid of them.
Ciara goes outside to fetch Leon for dinner. She asks the kids if they want to see a dirt-disappearing magic trick… and gets the hose to wash down Leon! He manages to turn off the water and grabs Ciara for a big wet dirty hug! When she tried to knock him down he took her with him, and both splatted wrestling in the mud. Lily and Conrad spy them, deeming it’s safer to leave them be! Leon and Ciara have to remove those muddy clothes before going inside, and Leon seems to have no problem stripping naked. Ciara is once again startled and pretty mad that he’s going to run inside butt naked! Poor Abigail fainted dead away from the sight of a naked Leon! Ciara seems to have a serious problem in see and thinking about Leon naked.
During dinner the family start questioning Conrad about his actual job. He tells them he is an errand boy and Lily lets slip that he is her bodyguard. …because of the reporters and paparazzi! Conrad escapes to the front porch as these questions are a little rough on him and Lily follows. She offers him a cookie, having noticed there’s a lot he doesn’t speak about with his family and he apologizes about walking out. Lily asks if he thinks everything might happen for reason, even bad things. Which leads to him saying he probably wouldn’t have been a hunter if those bad things didn’t happen. Lily stats she wondered what would have happened to her if he hadn’t. They have a good conversation about life!
At dinner the ladies are bringing up Ciara and Leon again, mentioning how romantic they are. Ciara claims she doesn’t find Leon very romantic, but does say he was entertaining. Leon asks Ciara to dance, and she accepts reluctantly. Leons says he never would have left if he had the choice. Ciara found it hard to stay angry, but said she was going to anyway because he never said goodbye. He states he never wants to leave again, and he’ll prove it to her!
- Lily tells Leon he’d be a perfect dad. Lily seems to think everything happens for a reason, even the bad. She’s glad to have met Conrad!
- Conrad seems uncomfortable about things dealing with his family, but Lily gives him a new perspective on things.
- Ciara is suspicious about Conrad. She’s admits being angry with Leon for disappearing.
- Leon tells Ciara he never wants to leave again, and intends to prove it.
Auntie Marigold is in the kitchen with a few of the women’s gossiping up a storm about those men! “Freddie got his head stuck in the fence and it took three hours to get him free. If they hadn’t of tried that butter, I doubt the goats would have been over there bothering them!”
Leon: *Has somehow wound up playing with the little ones too! Oooff! He just got tackled to the ground from behind by a swarm of kids!*
Ciara: *Balancing a kid on her hip while seeming to ignore the fact her hair was being pulled, came perfectly natural to Ciara! Now that she was able to see a great deal of Conrad’s family, she was finding it peculiar that no one mentioned his parents or siblings!* I imagine that was a sight to see.
Uncle Rufus, nearly seventy years old, bent over and missing all of his hair squinted. “Eh … You sure, sonny? Ya look like ya went and joined the circus!”
Leon: OOofff! *Someone else had jumped on his back! Two more little feet were using him as a trampoline! He glanced over his shoulder, reached back and tickled the back of the little’s knees!* Ha! Take that!
“We took pictures for the family album, of course.” Auntie Marigold was laughing as she fussed with whatever she was cooking. “At the moment it looks like that man of yours is gonna end up with his head in a fence with the way those kids are jumping on him!”
Uncle Rufus slowly turned, squinting. “Eh … Aunt Millie?” But he couldn’t make her out!
But he slowly trudged along in the direction Conrad had pointed in, forgetting all about him!
Ciara: Serves him right for rolling around on the ground. *She pried tiny hands off her hair to switch that baby to her other arm.* Conrad seems to be fine with little monsters too. Good training with his sisters, I take it?
Leon: *Grinned wolfishly as the little girl in the pink overalls squealed and quickly jumped off of him! Then it was only a matter of tickling a few more childrens’ legs before he was free! He rolled onto his stomach and got on his hands and knees!* That’s it! All that tickling has made me hungry … for you! *He started crawling after them on his hands and knees!*
“Look at the time, Mari! Shouldn’t we be er … checking the cookies right about now?” Cousin Sarah suggested!
“He’s really a joy to those kids! They’re practically his little soldiers. Conrad even has them trained for little recon missions, it’s so adorable!” Auntie Marigold dodged another question with skill!
Cousin Jimmy plopped down next to Lily, casting her a big wide braces filled grin! “Hiii.” He sighed! “Did it hurt when you fell out of heaven?”
Leon: *Kids went squealing and screaming in all directions!* I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll eat ya all for er … lunch! Or dinner! Or maybe lunch and dinner! Hey, I might even have a few of you for breakfast and a snack!
Ciara: *Dodged again. They were good… very good.* Learned from his father, maybe?
“Jimmy, leave that girl alone!” Auntie Marigold was checking on those cookies! “Speaking of fathers, that Leon would make a rather handsome husband, if I do say so myself! If I weren’t married, I’d snatch up a man like that!”
Leon: *Seemed puzzled when they all ran away! He sat back on his ankles and scratched his head!* Hey, you guys act like you’ve never seen a wolf before!
A couple of the kids, a girl named Matilda, and a boy named Chris came back. “Leon … You’re a wolf trying to eat us!” she said with her hands on her hips. “Of course we’re running away!”
Jimmy scooted over closer to Lily. “I don’t have a girlfriend. Been saving myself for the perfect woman and wow, you sure are perfect!”
Leon: *Blinked!* Oh yeah. *He suddenly lunged forward, closing the gap between himself and the two of them and snatching them up!* Guess I shouldn’t be doing this then. *And he started to tickle them!*
Leon: *Looked up as Lily approached! By now Chris had his arms around his neck and was on his back and Matilda was on Chris’ back!* Hey, Lily! Having fun?
Ciara: Leon is a disaster waiting to happen. *Temporarily distracted she spied to see what he was doing… Just as she thought.* That man doesn’t have a serious bone in his body.
“So … how long have you and Leon known each other?” Sarah asked, curious.
Leon: *Chuckled softly, easily fending off the little ones and staying upright!* Really …? Man, there was a time when I would’ve seriously considered taking up an offer like that.
Ciara: Since we were kids. Not much older than these rugrats, really. It was a long time ago, though.
“Ah … Childhood friendship that blossoms into romance … How … romantic!” Sarah giggled!
“What does he think about Lily’s father? I bet he’s viciously jealous of the man!” said Marigold!
Leon: OOoff! Ack! Hey! *He fell sideways and landed on his side! The kids began to laugh when he started moving like a worm! Or a snake, as one child pointed out!* Well, I do … It’s just … Well, back in the day, I would’ve been flirting and charming those ladies.
Ciara: *Ciara had pretty much given up trying to explain that there wasn’t anything romantic about it!* He’s thankfully never met the guy. Neither has Lily for that matter. Hopefully I’ll keep it that way. *Especially considering Lily’s father was the last man she ever wanted to see again! Only a step below those damned Carnatellis!*
Leon: Um … Just being friendly. *He gave a shrug while still wiggling like a worm–or a snake–which made the kids giggle even more!*
“Has Lily ever asked about her father?” Sarah wondered, curious!
Ciara: *…and now it was her turn to carefully dodge questons!* When she was small, she did once or twice… She never seemed to notice anything was missing from our family.
“You’re such a strong woman, Ms Grey!” Sarah exclaimed! “Why, I know a ton of other women who could never have bounced back … and with a child to boot!”
Leon: Oh no. Your mother is different. *He replied, casually, matter-of-fact. He went from being a worm-snake to being … a wolf. He got on his hands and knees and shook the grass from his clothes. That made the kids squeal and run to escape being covered in grass and dirt too!* I’ve always treated your mother differently, even when we were kids. *He stood and ruffled his hair to get some grass and dirt out. He paused to pull a twig from his hair.*
“It’s so hard for single mothers today. But, it’s nice that there’s a man around now and Lily seems to like him just fine! Have you thought about having anymore children?” questioned Marigold!
Ciara: *Ciara laughed, and she wasn’t sure herself if it was because she was annoyed or amused! She grinned at the babe she had in her hands.* I wouldn’t mind some little boys like this one.
Leon: *Chuckled softly when she mentioned him getting “socked”.* Yeah, good point. *He scratched his head.* Really? Hm. I’m sure there’s a real good reason why. Or a whole bunch of reasons why. Hey, did you know the werewolf gene is only found in males? Just a random fact.
An arm wrapped around Ciara’s shoulder, good old Ned! “If you need a man to make babies with, I’m sure available. I an arm wrestle any man here under the table!”
Ciara: *Ciara handed the kid over to Uncle Ned with a wide grin!* You already have plenty of kids, Ned. Any more and your wife is going to shoot you.
Leon: Wow. *He sidestepped a kid trying to tackle him from behind and snatched one up as the little girl ran past. He lifted her into the air as she giggled and with his hands on her hips, she spread her arms and flew like an airplane!* To be honest, a man would be priviledged to have you as a daughter. I’m not much of a father figure, though. *He laughed softly.*
Leon: *Blinked! Totally caught by surprise by that! He stopped twirling the girl around and both of them watched Lily take off! It dawned on him when he looked in the direction Lily had glanced in.* Oohh … *He and the girl said at the same time.*
And then Jimmy went running by! “Hey Lily! Do you like Mega Doctor Dangeroid comics…~!”
“Besides … she’s already got a man, Ned,” Sarah explained.
Ciara: *An exasperated sigh, as she rubbed for forhead!* He’s not my man! I am absolutely never going to date anyone ever again!
“Why not?” Sarah asked.
“After seeing Ned, I’d not want to date either!” chirped Marigold, shooing the man away!
Ciara: *Sliding in to a chair, she had that imperious look on her face again.* I have no desire to get involved with someone just to have them take off on me again. It’s so much simplier not to bother with them at all.
Jimmy popped his head in to the barn! “There you are, Lily! Hey Conrad! Wow, you sure can run fast, it’s a good thing I saw you come in here!”
Sarah slowly nodded. “Ah …” She blinked. “Which reminds me. Bertie overreacted again. I went into town the other day and she was on one of her rampages. Thought someone else had taken a liking to her man. You know, Luke.
“Not again!” cried Jimmy! He was shooting out of there like lightning, wailing about his comic!
“Good lord, that Bertie! Now there is a woman that can’t just let things go!” said Marigold. “Look at the time! Ms. Grey, you ought to go fetch Leon and bring him inside for something cool to drink! He’s liable to pass right out rolling out there with those kids all day!”
Ciara: Should I give you a few minutes to gossip about us while we’re outside? *Said Ciara, at least in good humor as she slid out of her chair and went for the door.* At least do me the favor of making it flattering gossip!
Leon: *Still rolling around the ground! He and the kids were trying to see who could cover themselves with grass and dirt the most!*
Ciara: *And that is what Ciara had to walk outside and find. …She stood there for a moment with her hands on her hips watching kids and grown adult rolling in the grass!* You missed a spot, Leon.
Leon: *Stopped and glanced over his shoulder!* … Really? *He had turn around in circles, like a dog–or in this case, a wolf–chasing his own tail. He finally stopped when he spotted it.* Awh man! *He huffed and looked over at the kids.* Guess I don’t win … *The kids went “Awhh …” for him and patted him on the hands and sides.*
Maverick’s ears twitched! They were awfully sensitive!
Ciara: *Ciara bit her bottom lip in a painfully obvious attempt at trying not to smirk.* On the bright side, you won’t have to sit in the bath nearly as long as everyone else.
“And you get to go to dinner sooner, Leon!” one of the kids added!
Leon: Really? *He blinked and then broke out into a wolfish grin.* Oh yay! Oh yay! Oh yay oh yay oh yay! *He started to jump up and down! Taking their cue from him, all the kids started to cheer and jump up and down with him, too!*
Ciara: *Wrapping an arm around her waist and covering her mouth with her hand, snicking was not an option!* It’s going to take your hours to get clean, though… I imagine you might not make it out until breakfast.
Leon: *He immediately stopped jumping up and down and cheering, as did the kids!* Awh man!
Ciara: …Ah! But I have an idea. How many of you little munchinks want to see me do an amazing magic trick and make all that dirt dissappear?
The kids began to jump up and down and raise their hands. There was a chorus of “I do! I do!” and “Me! Me!” and “I wanna see! I wanna see!”
Ciara: Wonderful! First… I need Leon to close his eyes so I can say the magic words!
Leon: *Raised an eyebrow and gave her a suspicious look.* Hm. *He looked down at all the hopeful kids.* Oh alright … *He took a deep breath and closed his eyes.*
Ciara: *A brilliant smile on her face, she waltzed right over to the side of the house and fetched the sprayhose. Making sure it was on she aimed at Leon!* Let’s see… those magic words you told me once. Oh yes, ‘One, two, peekaboo, Cissy have some water!’ *A little squeeze of the trigger and she sprayed him down good! Right in the face!*
Leon: *Sputtering up water! He quickly dashed for her, reaching out to grab the hose away from her as the kids squealed and ran away!*
Ciara: *Wicked laughter as she backed out of the way and sidestepped his grasping! She wasn’t kidding about getting that dirt, she was hosing him down good!*
Lily: *Lily patted the nice horse goodbye to follow Conrad. … He was pretty good at getting rid of Jimmy!*
Conrad: *Stretched his arms over his head as they walked to the house.* It’s strange being back. But I don’t know if that’s because of all the memories I have here or because I’m so used to the city.
Lily: Kind of like me going home to Shades? Only without the werewolf, gnome wars and security codes?
Conrad: *Walking toward the house with Lily when he spotted …!* Now there’s something you don’t see every day. *He remarked, taking a good look at Ms Grey and Leon.*
Lily: *Lily paused and gave a dubious stare!* …That couldn’t be my mother.
Conrad: *Quite frankly he was having trouble believing that himself! It made him wonder how this all could have happened!*
Lily: …Do you thik we should get the hose on them? *Then again, if getting involved meant rolling in the maybe they shouldn’t get involved!*
Conrad: I’m for leaving them alone and going to eat dinner. We can check on them later. *He started walking again but gave Leon and Ms Grey a wide berth.*
Lily: *The thought of her mommy making Leon eat mudpies for dinner had her grinning as she trailed behind Conrad.*
As soon as they were inside the door, Sarah waved at them over the heads of the family members still standing in line. The women who had cooked dinner were helping things along by serving the little ones first, then the older members, and finally everyone else.
Conrad: *Got into line behind Lily.* Maybe it’s true and the Montana air makes people do strange things.
Speaking of strange things, Jimmy appeared behind Conrad. “That was a dirty trick! My comics are safe and sound in the lock box.”
Leon: *Chuckled softly when she shoved him over again. He did fall back but only a little and he didn’t make any splashes of mud. He got up and went over to the hose. He turned the water on full blast and started shooting that mud off!*
Lily: They were strange to begin with… *She replied slowly, turning around to spy at Jimmy and make sure he stayed put!*
Conrad: *Glanced over his shoulder.* Really …? Then … what’s this? *He pulled something out of his jacket. What appeared to be torn pieces of comic book! They were so mangled it was hard to tell just what comic book it was!*
Jimmy snatched the comic out of Conrad’s hands, giving a mornful (yet comical!) cry! “No! My poor precious, what have they done to you?! Now I’ll never afford that car to impress Lily with! Noo…”
Lily: Why would I be impressed by a car? *Wait, did she say that out loud? Well, at least Jimmy was too busy being depressed over his poor comic!*
Conrad: Check it out. *He said as they got to the tables and he picked up a plate and some utensils.* Potato and mac salad and some BBQ ribs.
Lily: *It was very easy to forget about Jimmy with so much food! If Leon wasn’t her father, they had plenty enough in common about dinner! For a small girl, she could fill a plate!*
After getting their food, there was only the matter of squeezing themselves into an empty place on one of the many tables set up under a tent on the opposite side of the house from where Ciara and Leon were!
Jimmy rebounded pretty fast, practically diving in to a free seat by Lily! “Have I told you about my collection of Nether Army Orc Action figures? They came special with issues number 60 through 70!”
Lily: *Lily stopped mid chew of a potato wedge!* Mrrph? Jimmy… *She muttered… Lily looked down to eye his chair, and considered pushing him aside a few inches with her foot!*
Conrad: *Munching on his green salad. He’d practically soaked it in ranch.* Jimmy, give Lily a break, will you? At least give her time to eat and digest her food.
“You just want to hog her for yourself. A girl like Lily should be free like a wild stallion!” Jimmy was a little dramatic, but he WAS in drama club after all! He was also cracking an eye open to make sure his heartful words were getting a good reaction!
Conrad: Or … it could be that it’s rude to not let people eat in peace. *He replied before taking a bite out of his chicken.*
Lily: *Lily choked on her dinner! But at least it was from trying not to snicker! Jimmy went from creepy to just silly!*
Jimmy wilted! “You’re a right prat, Conrad! Blocking a guy’s groove and all!” But he behaved for now to eat his dinner!
“Conrad, explain to your uncle what you actually do for a living so he’ll stop saying you’re a circus freak!” complained Marigold who was getting fed up with the old man!
Abigail stopped dead in her tracks and her mouth dropped. She nearly dropped the basket of folded laundry she was holding! She was speechless and didn’t recover until Leon had long gone! … Then she fainted!
Conrad: *Swallowed his chicken and froze!* I’m … an errand boy for a company downtown. *He said. He put the half-eaten chicken down and stood up to take his plate and drink. It looked like he was done eating!*
“See, dear. He’s got a nice job and all. Is that how you two met, Lily? Him running errands for your family?”
Lily: He’s my bodyguard mostly. *Lily shrugged a shoulder licking barbecue sauce off her fingers, and casting Conrad a curious look!*
Conrad: *After taking care of his food and dishes, he stepped outside on the front porch and sat down the steps overlooking the dirt road that ran back to the main one. He took a few deep breaths, leaning forward to rest his elbows on his knees.*
“Bodyguard!” exclaimed Marigold! “On on earth does a boy go from errands to guarding!”
Leon: *With a towel around his waist and a pair of jeans and t-shirt over one shoulder, he paused in the hallway to check on the fainted Abigail.* Poor gal … working herself to the bone. *He sighed and shook his head and then continued on his way!* Cissy, I got you a towel! *He exclaimed, probably a little too loud for Ciara’s liking!*
Lily: When moma gets mad and doesn’t like me leaving the house by myself. *It was too easy to forget that her family wasn’t exactly normal! But she could still tell the truth without getting Conrad in trouble.* …The reporters and paparazzi?
“oh, yes! I almost forgot! I thought your mother looked familiar. Don’t you worry none then, about our Conrad. I’m sure if any reporters hassled you, they’d get a good sock in the face!”
Lily: I do feel better with him around. *An empty plate, Lily was up and taking care of it before Jimmy thought it was an invitation to bother her again! She waved to Marigold before escaping!*
Conrad: *Deep breath … Deep breath … He could get over this. He’d gotten over a lot of things. He closed his eyes, took several more deep breaths.*
Lily: *Lily found Conrad out on the porch, and without a word she sat down beside him and offered one of the cookies she managed to snatch.*
Of course there was still food left for Leon! He was given a plate and let loose on the food, piling it so high many thought it was going to fall over!
Conrad: *Looked up when Lily sat down beside him and accepted the cookie.* Thanks. Aunt Gladys makes some of the greatest cookies.
Sarah greeted Ciara as she walked into the kitchen and offered her a plate, adding that they still had plenty of food for her!
Lily: Marigold said you’d sock a paparazzi in the nose. I thought it was kind of funny.
Conrad: *Had to smile and chuckle softly at that!* Yeah … that is a pretty funny picture. *A few moments of silence, of him just looking out at the road.* Sorry that I … you know … just left like that.
Lily: It’s not too awful. I escaped Jimmy before he started talking again. …There’s a lot of things you don’t talk about with them.
Conrad: *Deep sigh!* No … No, I don’t. I try to keep them in the dark. The whole hunting thing. They’ll worry about me constantly and there’s always the risk that … one day … something … something bad might happen.
“Look at that man eat! You know, I wish my husband would roll around with me in the mud like that. It’s so romantic to play like we were children!” Marigold sighed!
Lily: Or think you might be a super hero. … But worry, all the time anyway. *She broke off a piece of her cookie to pop in her mouth.* Do you think things happen for a reason? Even the bad things?
Conrad: *Leaned forward on his knees.* To be honest … I really don’t know anymore. I used to believe they happened for a reason. But now … I’m not so sure.
Lily: If it never had happened, would you have been a hunter at all?
Conrad: No … *He shook his head.* Probably not. *It was apparent by the tone in his voice that he had considered that question a long time ago.*
“But those little things are so much fun! Oy, I remember during our senior Prom, they rented this big boat out on the lake and someone thought it’d be funny to loosen the railings… so we ended up having the party in the water, literally!”
Lily: If you weren’t a hunter, I wonder where I would be now. If I would have even left that building alive.
Conrad: *Looked over at her and studied her for a moment. He finally nodded.* … I see your point. There are times … I forget that. Guess this family reunion is getting to me more than I thought it would. It’s not that I’m not enjoying myself. *He quickly added.* Just … *His voice trailed off, unable to put what he meant in words.*
There was some clapping and cheers! Uncle David was pulling out his fiddle and Uncle Jonathan was strumming his guitar! They were starting to play some lively country tunes to get the heart pumping and the feet moving!
Lily: *She shrugged, giving a sort of half smile.* Nothing that happened is okay… but it’s done. We could go on a rampage, or do something like threaten to shoot your mother in a crowded hotel… But it probably wouldn’t be as nice as having dinner with friendly people or eating cookies on the front porch.
Sarah, sitting close by, leaned close to Ciara! “Do you two mud wrestle all the time …?”
Conrad: So … Uh … Is this your first time out in the country-side?
Sarah giggled! “You two were absolutely adorable outside! A bunch of the kids came inside and they couldn’t stop talking about the two of you going at it.”
Lily: *She nodded.* Real countryside anyway. The summer house is outside of the city, but it’s not anything like this.
Conrad: I know what you mean. The first time I got back to the city I was so shocked, I was nearly run over by a bus. *He cleared his throat.* Not my best moment, that’s for sure.
Lily: How did you manage to find a place like Oracle with everything being so different?
Conrad: You probably noticed. Not a lot changes. I met them before and when I returned to the city, they were still there. They’re always looking for new recruits.
Lily: My mother has been muttering things about Oracle for days now… I think she plans to join it herself.
Conrad: *Tried to picture Ciara as a hunter.* Mm … She looks more like a mover and shaker. I get the feeling she’s disgusted with how Oracle is right now.
Lily: She really likes things perfect. *Leaning back to rest on her hands, she tapped her feet together.* She also likes snooping. She’s asked a lot questions to your family.
Conrad: *Looking down that road again!* … She’s met just about everyone. *He said with a small shrug.*
Lily: *Almost everyone. Lily watched him in silence for a few moments. Once he mentioned a sister, but they hadn’t met any sisters. It wasn’t hard to put two and two together.* I’m glad I met you.
Conrad: *Blinked! He certainly hadn’t expected something like that! He turned to look at her and smiled.* Thanks. Hey, I never did get to ask … When’s your birthday?
Lily: My birthday? *She had to think about it. Not that she forgot her birthday, she just… hadn’t thought about it in so long!* October 30th… I suppose it’s why I’m so strange.
Conrad: Yeah, well … I’ve learned “normal” is overrated. I’ve tried to be normal before but it never worked out.
Lily: I guess life for normal people isn’t near as exciting. *Grinning softly, she shrugged a shoulder.* I’m going to try classes soon.. Do you think you’ll stand outside the door making your intimidating face?
Conrad: Not like it’s approved much since the last time you saw it. *He teased a bit.* But I won’t be far. I might have to ‘sock’ a reporter or two.
Lily: *A grin!* Especially when they snap particularly awful shots of your intimidating face for their magazines?
Conrad: Gee, thanks for the vote of confidence. *He said with a laugh.* Maybe I should wear dark sunglasses or something. Think that would help?
Lily: If you add a black suit and tie. …maybe. Like a super spy!
Conrad: *Was thoughtful for a moment.* Wolfe. Conrad Wolfe. *He said in a James Bond-like voice.*
Lily: …Then again, you might just look completely crazy and get escorted out by campass security…
Conrad: *Scratched his head.* Good point. Maybe your mom can see about getting me a visitor’s pass or something. I could go undercover as a student but then I’d have to take classes and I won’t be able to do my job.
Lily: Spending everyday with me, I think before long you’ll be begging for a new job!
Conrad: *Chuckled softly.* Well … Don’t tell any of my bosses this but … I happen to enjoy your company, Ms Grey.
