Aava marvelled at the odd lightness she felt, searching for a reflective surface to check out her new hair. Gasping in delight, Aava beamed:"(Evren! It's nice! I have a person haircut now!)"
What she'd meant was that she looked like the people on the streets now - much less like a weird creature and more like an actual human with just oddly coloured hair. The näkki beamed, walking over to follow Evren outside.
Her steps were light and bouncy as they walked, clearly elated by her new look and the promise of a lake."(Are we there yet?)"
Aava would ask here and there, eyes curiously darting around for any signs of the lake. Soon the ground became much softer as it turned into marshland. Aava's good mood only got better the deeper they got."(What a silly little lake,)"
Aava mused as they got to what could arguably be called the shoreline. Looking at Evren, she smiled with curiosity and maybe a little bit of that confusion she never seemed to lose nowadays."(Is this my new lake, new home?)"
Fuck, she's making me walk isn't she,
Nessa thought, mildly irritated. Well, she couldn't blame Beck really. There was literally no reason not to, doing it in any other way would be wildly inefficient."Yeah, 'course,"
Nessa nodded, taking off after Beck. She was trying to make her sluggish pace seem normal, but even Vanessa could tell Beck wasn't as stupid as to believe that.
When they got to Beck's van, Nessa was pretty quick to go sit as soon as she could. It felt quiet between them, a bit too quiet. Nessa opened her mouth to say something, but thought the better of it. She wasn't really great with words.
I mean... she was
, but only when she wasn't telling the truth, something which wasn't what Nessa was trying to achieve here with Beck.
