Somehow, Jono and Didi had decided to go birdwatching.

Didi managed to keep this going until she realized all the different small songbirds looked about the same to her. Luckily, there were plenty of other things to keep her entertained in the woods on an early spring day. "Look," she said to her companion, gesturing off to the left. "It's a whole field of crocuses."

[OOC: For the boy. *scrolls down on f'list* It's a surprisingly big preserve :-)]

Jono glanced in the direction that Didi had indicated, and then blinked. The crocuses, he had to admit, were at least easier to keep an eye on than the birds were. And he knew what they were, which helped considerably.

//We might stop here for a bit,// he suggested. //Yer never know. Maybe we'll at least spot some hummingbirds or something in there, right?//

Hummingbirds had the added bonus of being not only birds, but somewhat interesting ones.

//I imagine butterflies can't be too far away,// Jono mused, picking his way alongside her. //There are flies out, at any rate.//

The downsides that game with the upsides, really. Next, it would be mosquitoes.

And, bringing about the cuteness thing another notch toward 'full circle,' Jono thought that Didi pointing out a ladybug was also amazingly cute.

//So it is,// he mused, finding himself crouching down to get a good look, too. //That's got t'be th'first ladybug I've seen this year. Suppose that's good luck, or sommat?//

Hey. He could use all of the good luck he could get. Even if he didn't particularly believe in the stuff.

furnaceface: (HappyDammit!)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//Our good luck,// Jono corrected, looking her way with a smile in his features. He lifted his hand to curl his fingers around hers. //We ought t'get out like this more often, I think.//

Sunshine and Didi. Winning combination, that.

//Yer suppose th'summer'll be more pleasant, then?// He'd spent all of... one summer in America, thus far. The weather had been...

Well. It had been weather. That was about the tall and short of it.

//You are planning on staying on through th'summer, right?//

furnaceface: (Kinda down)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
Right. Go. She had to... to do that, sooner or later.

He fixed his gaze on the flower for a moment, until he was certain that he wouldn't go broadcasting how much that bothered him all around the island for the world to see. For her to see.

//Coastal cities are excellent for that,// he shared. //Th'wind from the Atlantic keeps it from gettin' too insufferably hot.//

He was going to poke at the ladybug, now.

furnaceface: (Looking away)

Back when he still had a throat to swallow with.

He glanced up at her, giving his shoulders a shrug, and then, in an attempt to lighten the mood a little as well, he... changed the subject.

//Hold out yer hand, luv?//

//Tickly, actually,// Jono replied, holding up his hand. The ladybug was perched at the end of his finger.

furnaceface: (Told you so)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//Wouldn't dream of it,// Jono agreed as he let his finger rest in the cup of her hand. The ladybug stood there for a moment, and then made her merry way from finger to hand. //Never really was th'sort to crush a ladybug out of spite, after all.//

If Jono was in even a slightly worse mood, he might have commented about how he was certain that now that she'd said it, a crow would swoop down from above and steal the insect away.

Only... He wasn't in a worse mood, and he believed her. When Didi had feelings like that, he figured they weren't to be taken lightly. And there was just something... Nice? Something nice, about thinking that this insect in particular would do well for itself.

//Good t'hear,// he said, instead. //I like that, I think. That she'll... last.//

//Plenty more ladybugs from there, th'species lives on.//

Apparently, he'd swallowed more than just an almanac.

//She's a good find,// he decided. //Even if we were supposed t'be looking at birds.//

Oh, come on. Her boyfriend was so much more interesting than a bunch of birds.

Well, maybe not more interesting than that owl had been, but since they'd been distracted, they'd never know.

//Well, we'll always have th'macaw,// he decided. Which made up for just about every sparrow they'd seen so far today, yes.

Date: 2010-03-21 12:34 am (UTC)
furnaceface: (Wtf?)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
Barring any crows, of course!

//'We'll always have th'ladybug,'// he echoed, bemused. //It certainly has a unique sort of ring to it, doesn't it?//

Jono took a seat, careful to mind the ladybug on his way down.

//What do I see?// He looked upward, then, reaching an arm around her shoulder. //Beyond just clouds, yer mean?//

Jono took a moment and tilted his head sideways in order to get a better look.

It was absolutely just coincidence that tilting his head sideways like that meant his head was resting against hers. Truly.

//Completely heedless of th'elephant comin' up behind 'em because he wants a turn, too?//

Date: 2010-03-21 01:48 am (UTC)
furnaceface: (Wtf?)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//That'd be th'dog breed, right?// Jono squinted at the cloud in question for a moment. //Only with wings?//

Flying dogs could totally happen.

Date: 2010-03-21 02:04 am (UTC)
furnaceface: (Happy!)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//It rather does,// Jono agreed, bemused. //There's a group of hunting dogs called griffons, and considering th'cloud, I'd thought perhaps that was what yer were referring to.//

He glanced her way, bemused.

//I think perhaps yer have a better imagination than I do, luv.//

Date: 2010-03-21 02:21 am (UTC)
furnaceface: (Butterfly!)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
//Seen any butterflies, yet?//

Jono offered her a smile before looking back at the sky. If you asked him, there were a few right there. The entire trampoline was made of them.

furnaceface: (Gym uniform!)
From: [personal profile] furnaceface
Which, naturally, had him go a little cross-eyed before he looked her way again.

//That so, luv?//

Oh, there was mischief in that tone, no doubt about it.
