Nope, I’m not even into much good music. I just kind of stick to the stuff I hear on the radio and at parties really… [He shrugged, he knew it was crap music but it wasn’t really a concern of his. It was virtually impossible for Kirby to stay sad for too long around Tessa, he just couldn’t fight the smile that she so infectiously gave him.] Really? No, I’m free, I’d love to. [He was excited to hear her play, he had never really heard anything other than the couple of bands around Rosewood play actual live music and to hear her play something she had created herself was baffling to Kirby, and it hadn’t even happened yet. Kirby noticed her avoiding his eye contact as she began speaking about her therapist, he didn’t want her to feel inclined to talk about it because Kirby had, that was the last thing he wanted.] You don’t have to talk about it.. Y’know just because of what I said last weekend about myself, that doesn’t mean you’re obliged to say anything you’re not comfortable with. [He told her resting his hand on her wrist.] I kind of want to hear that song.

{She said with a matter-of-fact tone to her voice} There’s no such thing as good music and bad music. It’s all subjective. {Trying to tame her excited smile, Tessa bit her lip and nodded} Okay, cool. {She played for people all the time, but usually it was either for her fellow music students who were constantly critiquing her skills whether they consciously tried to or not, or her housemates who weren’t always interested. Taking a deep breath to try and clear her mind, because the last thing she wanted was to bring the good mood down, she looked up at Kirby through her eyelashes} I’ll tell you one day, just… not today. {Sliding her hand back so she could take his, Tessa gave him a soft smile to tell him she was alright, before taking a few steps towards the Delta Phi house and tugging on his hand} What are we waiting for, then? Hurry up.

So what you mean to say is… I’ve been doing it wrong all this time? [He asked with a shocked expression on his face, breaking it when he couldn’t fight a laugh.] Just don’t let me near your violin, speaking of which, I’ve still gotta hear you play. [He nodded.] Well it’s working wonders for you. [It was cute, it made the moment uniquely Tessa. He observed the scar, it really had cut deep. When she mentioned a therapist Kirby made sure not to react to it in a brash manner, he knew what it was like to be questioned about that sort of thing.] You’ve got one too, huh?

image

Unless you’re in one of those crazy punk bands where they destroy their instruments after every song… {She flashed a smile, glad to hear him laughing; especially after what he’d told her the last time they’d spoken} You’re not gonna let me forget, are you? If you’re not busy now… {It made her cheeks warm, the fact that he was so taken by the apparent softness of her hands. No one had noticed something so trivial about her before. It was always her boobs or her hair or her face. Though in all honesty, she’d never let anyone so close before outside of Lucy. Keeping her eyes focused on her hands as she massaged her palm with a thumb just like Kirby had done, she frowned slightly and nodded} Uh, yeah. Don’t see her much anymore, only when things get bad, really.

kirbydelevingne:

Seriously? Damn, meanwhile I can’t even go near an instrument out of fear of breaking the thing. [He laughed, her sweet caress drifting lightly over his pale cheek.] Yeah, sport science is a handy class to be in. [As he worked her other palm he smiled.] You still have really soft hands, and I’m still baffled as to how you get them that soft. [He told her, remembering what he’d said when they held hands. When he finished her other hand he kissed her wrist lightly.] I should open up some kind of Kirby therapy.

image

What do you do, bash them against the wall? This might be news to you, but that’s not how you make music. {Tessa sweet smile didn’t seem to be going anywhere, which seemed to be a recurring thing when Kirby was around} Like I said… I wash them a lot. It’s a girl thing, we’re mysterious creatures. {She bit her lip, still slightly embarrassed about that part of their encounter on the weekend} You kind of already have. I mean, {she raised her hands slightly, the scar on her palm from where the glass had cut her a pretty pink line} and you’re very good at talking me through stressful things… better than my therapist ever- uh, yeah.

I’m sure if you put your mind to it you could be the first great foot violin player.. Unless someone’s already done that. You don’t have to make mistakes in order for me to be around. [He smiled and placed a kiss on her wrist.] Health science, we learnt about muscles and strains. [He moved onto the next hand doing the same thing.

image

I wouldn’t be surprised if someone’s already done it. I know there’s a guy that has no arms and plays piano with his feet. I’d like to hope I’ll keep my arms though. They’re far too useful to do without. {Hesitantly, she reached out with her free hand and stroked her knuckles delicately over his cheek as he kissed her other wrist} Oh, of course. Obviously that’s the kind of thing that would be handy for an athlete to know. {Wiggling her fingers on the hand he’d just finished massaging, she smiled to herself} Good as new.

It isn’t fun but I think the whole pain immersion is kind of therapeutic physically and mentally.. I don’t know how though. [He cupped one of her small hands in two of his large hands and used his thumbs to gently massage her palm, leading up to her fingers one by one.] You keep going this way and this time next year you won’t have any hands at all. [He chuckled as he continued to massage her left hand.] How does that feel?

If you say so. {She chuckled, finding the idea of willingly getting into an ice bath absolutely insane} I hope that’s not the case… I’m not sure how good I’d be at playing my violin with my feet. If you keep coming to my rescue like this though, I might just keep being clumsy. {Sighing softly, she felt the tension in her hands easing slowly} It’s… yeah, it’s working. You’re really good at this.

Muscle strain is the worst, whenever I get a muscle strain I take an ice bath… I’m not sure if it’ll work for hands. Can I see? [He asked, holding his hand out for hers.] Promise I’ll be gentle.

image

An ice bath? That sounds horrible. Oh, sure. {She held out her hands, flexing her fingers slowly} First the glass from my window, now this… I swear I’m not usually this prone to injuring myself.

Lemon cupcakes and carnations, got it.

Sounds like work is getting to the best of you. 

We had an order for a wedding to fill today, that’s all. Usually I just work on the front counter but the baker needed a few extra sets of hands to get the cupcakes decorated in time. I think I’ve discovered a few muscles I didn’t know I had.

So my plan of just stabbing the cupcake dealer and running off with the cupcakes isn’t a viable one?

image

I feel like that might put the cupcakes at risk of getting blood on them… and unless you’re a vampire that’s probably not what you want.
