Edward's rather obvious tonight. He didn't start that way.

This was more of a family favor that just....happened.




Kate's been gone about an hour now, but Edward is still at the piano.
The piece is pianissimo, at the deeper end of the scale, wandering slowly.

He's moving, this time.

That would seem to be an improvement, because frankly the time he was just sitting completely motionless kind of freaked her out a little.

Now she just has to figure out if being careful means being careful about approaching him or not approaching him at all and she hates -- she hates -- not knowing how to deal with saying hello to someone she thinks of as a friend, because that shouldn't be something you have to analyze all this terribly much.

And then there's the realization that he can hear her trying to analyze the ramifications of saying hello to him or not, and how insanely rude is that? Given that she's thinking about him, and he no doubt knows that she's thinking about him, she really should just go ahead and say hello, except, of course, that actually saying hello is kind of redundant at this point, although it's also rude to interupt him while he's playing and --

Oh, to hell with it.

Hello, Edward.

It's more of a response than she got last time.

Meg raises her right hand in a very small wave, and takes exactly one further step toward the piano.

Edward?

Okay . . . now what?

Meg crosses the space to the piano.

Her eyes are on his hands, too, for the moment.

"How are you?"

She looks from his hands to his face, trying to see what color his eyes are.

She doesn't really know what the gold means. Dr. Cullen didn't tell her more than that the black meant not well.

But she nods.

"I'd certainly say I've seen you better than you seemed the last couple times I saw you.

"But I'm hoping I've also seen you worse than I'm seeing you now."

The fact that he actually acknowledged her, spoke to her . . . well, that's encouraging."

"I was a little more worried about you than I was about me."

And then something catches in her ever-analyzing mind.

"'Wouldn't have'?"

Not 'wouldn't,' not 'won't'?

"Wouldn't have" means that something has changed. It's used for events that could have taken place in the past.

Not in the present.

It takes Meg a second to work that out.

"You weren't eating?

"But Dr. Cullen said he hadn't seen you. How would he have known . . .?"

noteful: (worried (but not afraid))
From: [personal profile] noteful
Yeah, she can fill in that particular blank.

But it's hardly the point.

"So he knew because I told him."

Without knowing that she told him.

That Edward had . . . what? Some kind of . . . vampire anorexia? Or was on a hunger strike?

"Does the gold in your eyes now mean that you've been eating again?"

noteful: (neutral happy)
From: [personal profile] noteful
"Some is better than none," Meg says.

"Where are you now? I mean, where did you come here from?"

noteful: (worried)
From: [personal profile] noteful
Frankly, Edward, the last time you used that particular phrase, it didn't exactly sound like a good thing.

"What's all over?"

Date: 2010-11-10 12:30 am (UTC)
noteful: (neutral happy)
From: [personal profile] noteful
"You went back."

To Forks.

And to his family.

That's good.

So things are getting better?

It's just inevitable, isn't it?

In a conversation with Edward Cullen, there comes at least one moment when Meg

just

waits.

Date: 2010-11-10 02:08 am (UTC)
noteful: (worried (but not afraid))
From: [personal profile] noteful
Not really, no.

"And how would you say things are there?"

Date: 2010-11-10 02:12 am (UTC)
noteful: (extraordinary (ready to be))
From: [personal profile] noteful
"The kind of mess you can clean up, do you think?"
