"Thanks." Jamie sighed, not too upset at Captain Obvious. In fact, a small smile tugged at his lips at the bluntness - it was rather refreshing to know it came from a place of concern rather than someone telling him to dodge as many bludgers as possible with impaired visibility. It was then that he realized that his living room was an absolute mess, and he inwardly cringed at his carelessness. How he wished Alex had seen at least some of it and fixed it herself...
"Eight? Earlier than I thought..." He stifled a yawn with much difficulty, and wound up sniffling instead before concluding his reply. "Uh... Coach said he wanted to train 'till 3 AM or so." Jamie recalled putting something up on QuillBook about it, but it was all a blur at that point to him. "So... I assume we finished up at that hour, or close to. I hope. I didn't really look..." Good thing it was a day off that day, and a rest day from bodybuilding at that. He could sleep all day without any problem.
Well, he could once Toriya left, of course.
He retrieved a pitcher of cold, fresh orange juice from the fridge - Summer was fast approaching and they needed to keep up with their share of cold beverages, of course. Serving a glass to both himself and his friend, he handed Toriya hers before taking a sip of the refreshing drink. Hopefully it would serve to wake him up.
As she went on, he realized he was about to get 'the talk' - at least, what he dubbed so after Alex cornered him about it one day. He sat on the armrest of the couch and pinched the bridge of his nose before speaking up. "Is it getting any worse than before?" He knew it was. It was most likely the sole reason why he was brought up to the official Seeker position anyway. "If it works, it works, yeah? Why does it bother you so much?" While he didn't mean it in a hostile manner, he certainly saw how it could be interpreted as such.
"Uh, I mean... If it works, it works, yeah? My wallet's happy." He wasn't. He was completely torn up inside about it, in fact, a fact privy only to his twin sister. "I doubt it'll last too long. The way things are going, I'll save up enough for the stuff I need in no time." No, he wouldn't. He'd stretch it out as long as possible. His mother wouldn't suffer again.
