In dat hallway
Kamala nodded, a large grin plastered on her face.
"Mmhmm! And you must be the one Ethy slept with!"
Balder looked at Kamala, and snickered. He then cleared his throat, causing the girl to turn and look at him.
"Kamala, no, we don't say things like that."
She tilted her head to one side at him, seeming confused.
"But mommy said--"
"Mommy was teasing, dear... And its sometimes best not to repeat what mommy says either."
She gave him an odd look and pouted slightly at him. He gestured for her to go over to him, and she was quick to comply. He looked back up at Youay, a slight smirk on his face.
"Sorry, she tends to hear things she shouldn't. Anyways, you're wanting to know about Ethelyn? Unfortunately I can't give you much of an update in there as I haven't been able to get either of them to answer the door."
Joshua, who had been peeking out at Youay with his left, green eye the entire time, mumbled out his own, quiet little comment to the conversation.
"ᴱᵗʰʸ'ˢ ᵍᵉᵗᵗᶦᶰᵍ ᵖʳᵉᵗᵗʸ ʷᶦᶰᵍˢ⋅⋅⋅"
The doctor would be able to see Balder visibly tense at this, however, he continued on in the same, calm tone as he had before.
"I'm sure she's fine, though. Its not like this hasn't happened before... Its actually quite common for these parts."
He glanced at the food container once, then back at Youay, a smile appearing on his face.
"That is very kind of you, saves me the trip actually... Unfortunately getting food for them gets much more complicated when I have to deal with two little monkeys at the same time."
