You had almost forgotten the odd sense of loss that comes with house jumping, they were just things but it had become more of a home than you had planned. Better safe than hanging like a cheap chrstmas decoration on Terezi’s hanging tree. You kind of envy those who have popped up who can stay in one place with whom ever they want. You don’t mind adventuring, it’s always been your favorite thing.
You just wished things were different and the adventures weren’t the only thing that kept you both alive.
You’re glad you the sense to grab a hoodie before you left, maroon blood meant you were somewhat warmer than him, but you still use him to block the slight breeze. His strides are quicker than yours so it’s easier to just hover and be towed along for the ride.
If you’re extra nice to him, he may let you on his shoulders, maybe. You swing his hand a bit and shrug, “Maybe someday it won’t be and the only time we’ll have to go is when we feel like it.” you offer. You know it’s not true but the idea is a nice one.
Kick a stone, kiss her cheek. You hope the kiss relays the sentiment that you don’t want to talk about it, much. You have no idea where you’re going, but you walk, walk, walk anyway.
You’re an odd pair if there ever was one.
All the alternates you’ve met so far have even said so, themselves.
"How far we goin’?"
