"Oh, dear. It ah, seems that we're not at home anymore." He'd placed the quill and blanket scrap into a pocket of his pants - his brain registered them as 'jeans' - and his hand was currently twisting the blanket around in his pocket.

Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
