Sapphire was happy. For the first time... ever, she felt content with her life. She had friends that cared about her, a boyfriend, a team she was still proud to be on, a family she might just go to meet, and schoolwork she was enamored with. Feeling lazy, she picked up her favorite book and made her way to the student lounge. The room was empty except for one table. She smiled as she spotted Mervyn sitting there, buried in schoolbooks. She smiled, watching him a moment before going to sit down.

She picked a coach near the fireplace and settled into the cushions, kicking her shoes off and tucking her feet up beneath her. She didn't want to bother him when he looked so focused. She opened up the worn copy of 'The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe' and began to read. A small smile lit her face as she read. She must've been through this book a hundred times, but it never got dull. She was drawn into the familiar world of the Pevensies.

Mervyn wasn't taking anywhere near as many classes this year as he had last, but it still felt like too many. He rubbed his forehead, struggling to find the word he needed for his essay. Why was writing so difficult? Or perhaps more to the point, why did he find writing so difficult when everybody else seemed to find it easy? He wasn't dyslexic. Just slow, maybe.

Respite came in the form of Sapphire sitting down on the sofa next to him. "Awright?" he said, not really wanting to disturb her reading. But after a minute or so more of struggling for the word, he tossed his books down on the table and lay down to rest his head on Sapphire's lap. He grinned up at her, always happy to be a pest. "You wanna read to me?" he asked. Nobody had read to him since... well, ever. Maybe once or twice, when he'd been too young to really remember it.

Sapphire started a bit when Mervyn appeared in her lap. She kept a finger in her spot, shutting the book to look at him. She couldn't help the affectionate smile that spread over her face, or the blush as he asked if she wanted to read to him. "Of course I do," She told him as she ran her fingers lightly over his forehead. "Don't you wanna know what I'm reading, though?" She teased, opening her book up and moving back to the beginning. "It's probably a little silly, but it's my favorite." She admitted, tracing the words with her fingers before glancing back down at the boy.

Mervyn pulled a face as Sapphire touched his forehead. "As long as it ain't an 'istory textbook, I ain't that bothered," he said, though when he realised the book meant something to Sapphire, he turned a little more serious. "Awright - what's it called?"

Sapphire drew her hand back when Mervyn pulled a face. Whoops. She made a mental note not to do it again. She blushed, looking away when he asked what the book was called. It sounded bad to admit out loud, but she was too far into it to not tell him. "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe." She told him, brushing her hair behind her ear. "It's about four siblings from London that end up in another world and have to save it." She blushed again, hoping it wasn't too ridiculous.
