    Summary

    “Why not accept her confession? Is she not your type?” Eli asks with a smile on his face when Norton is done talking. Norton frowns slightly, playing with the love letter in his hands.

    “No, she’s cute enough – funny too, but. I’m not just feeling it, you know?” he answers, reading over the sweet words on the pastel pink paper. It’s cute. And he’s flattered, really, but the idea of dating her doesn’t really sit right with him. 

    Eli hums lightly. “You get along pretty well though. Do you have some other reason you’re unwilling to go out with her?”

    At that moment the door of the locker room opens, and the boxing team members start flooding out, ready to start their own practise. Norton’s eyes lock on them, trying to see if they can spot the familiar, short figure among the team. And he’s not disappointed when Naib emerges from the locker room soon after. His gaze follows him as he watches the older boy laugh and joke around with his teammates, and he hums noncommittally, not really having listened to Eli’s question.

    “Oh, I see. I guess I should have known,” Eli huffs with a soft, good-willed laugh.

    Summary

    The first time Aesop met Eli, he was 9, a too-quiet boy with uncut hair and faded sweater, drawing by himself instead of playing with the other kids; and Eli was in his late adulthood, the start of middle-age, thinning hair and stubble, and twilight-dusk-sky eyes.

    The next time they met, he was 11, and Eli was in a university hoodie and with a face free of age-lines, and refused to be called with 'Mister'.

    [“No, no, that was a legit question.” He smiled a bit at that. “But I don’t think I can answer it in a way that’ll satisfy you.”

    “…How come?”

    “Because it would sound absurd and you’re not going to believe me.” His smile turned a little helpless, a little dismayed, at that. “Not now.”]
