“Which one is your sister?” Maddix asked from beside Jonas.
Jonas glanced over at him then back out toward the people crowding into the center. There were devils, superheroes, other things he couldn’t even make out. And there were the witches. His lips twitched. “I don’t think she bothered with a costume.”
Maddix narrowed his eyes then elbowed Jonas in the side. He was one of the few who’d never thought he had to treat Jonas carefully because of his leg. And Jonas appreciated that. “That’s not a nice thing to say about your own twin. She seems like a very nice person.”
“Who says witches can’t be nice?” Jonas asked, smiling a little. “It’s not nice to stereotype, Maddix. Don’t you know that?”
“Shut up,” he said, elbowing Jonas again. “You know me better than that. And you’re the one that said it. Like I said, she seems nice.”
“I’m surprised you think that when she’s barely given you the time of day the last year. No matter how much you try to get her attention.”
Maddix shrugged a shoulder. “Not like she owes me anything. Doesn’t mean I can’t still try.”
“I thought Konner said you were into that Maribel anyway.”
Maddix scoffed. “Right. The boss’s daughter. I see that working out for me.”
Jonas felt Isaac slide up beside him, sandwiching him in. Not something he was going to complain about. “What are you guys talking about?” he asked.
“My love life,” Maddix grumbled. “Or lack of one. And I think that’s enough of that. I’ll see you around.”
Isaac laughed into the side of Jonas’ neck. “One way to get rid of him. I’ve been waiting to get you to myself tonight.”
Jonas knew there was still some time before they’d truly be able to do that. This party still had hours to go. But, he still slipped his hand into Isaac’s and held on to him for the moment.
This week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt was to Start your post with the word “which” and try to fit the word “witch” in somewhere if you can. Bonus points if you use a word that ends in “wich.” As an added rule this week, you will lose all the points you’ve ever earned if you type “which witch is which” anywhere in your post. Have fun! And that last rule made me really want to do just that. But, I resisted. 🙂 Instead you get a little more of Jonas & Isaac(which will come after the end of their story) and some set-up potential for Maddix’s story(if I ever get to it).
