*Stares at the food and toys, before grabbing a handful of burger with one hand and a toy with the other. She begins to talk with her mouth full of food.*
We’re sorta’ family, right? I mean, we’re the same person, but it’ll probably get weird if I keep on calling you me and stuff. So…sisters, maybe?*Doesn’t meet her older self’s eyes at that part- ‘same person’ or no, that was the most she’d let her guard down…ever, actually.*
…Uh. Anyway, if you get a job, does that mean I have to go to school? Like, a real school? With other kids? And- wait. We get to go to a TOY STORE?
Sisters sounds good to me! And yeah, school would probably be a thing. You just couldn’t do the blaster hands there, obviously. You could make some friends, that would be pretty cool.
And hell yeah you get to go to a toy store! We’ll get you some cool stuff. You deserve it.
Friends…you should get friends to! Just- you’ll have a job and stuff, so you’ll meet people, and they’ll have to be friends with you! You’re awesome!What kinda toys do you think I-we- should get? I don’t…these are really cool. *Waves cheap plastic Burger Bot toy.* Could we get some more of them?
*She shifts uncomfortably in her seat* I… don’t really do the whole “friend” thing. I’ve tried, I just suck at it. But! You’re younger so I think you’ll do fine. And yeah, we can get whatever you want. Just say the word when you’re ready.
*Sari forces a pretty genuine looking smile at the young girl, as she tries to shift the topic away from herself and focus on the positive for once. This kid isn’t going to end up like her. She’s going to have everything she ever wants. She’s going to have friends, fun, birthday parties, the works. That’s all that matters now.*
