"There's the bundle of joy." Kali grinned before looking at Set. "Get her a few stuffed animals. Biggish ones," she made an estimation with her hands. "They'll make her feel less lonely when she wakes up, she'll have something to hug that's bigger than her that'll make her feel safe when you guys aren't immediately there." She smiled. "Besides, who doesn't like something to cuddle with?"
Thoth flinched suddenly and held his head, wincing. "Ow."
"What's up with you, bookworm?" Kali raised an eyebrow.
"Something really nasty was written down. F- crap," he gnashed out. "It's nothing. Just, someone writing cruel poetry. Self-hating crap. Pretty vitriolic. Most likely just an angry teenager." He rubbed his forehead. "Haven't seen anything like that since the reign of Tut."
"Bet that was fun." She sipped her tea.
"Worst. Pharoah. Ever." He shook his head and leaned back to take a breath.
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
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!
