'Ha, reminds me of Arthur when I was little,' Alfred mused as he thought about his older, grumpy brother before slipping out some homework from his book bag, finished with his food. He always liked being outside when the temperature was just right, sun peeking a little-but not too much-through the clouds. When the wind cooled the sun's stings on his light skin and ruffled his golden hair like an affectionate elder. Alfred leaned his head back to enjoy the laughter that echoed around, to smile as he watched the two brothers play, "Higher, Dean! I won't fall, promise!" After a little bit, the teen set to work and started trying to complete difficult Calculus questions. His blue eyes were so trained on the numbers and letters that he didn't notice the little girl until she settled herself next to him, him looking up startled for a second before settling back to his cheerful and friendly demeanor.
"Well hi there, little dudette!" He greeted merrily, "What is your name? I'm Alfred the hero but you can just call me Alfred!" Her head tilted slightly, long (h/c) hair spilling off her small shoulder as she peered at him curiously. "My name is (Name). Nice to meet you," the girl replied, voice quiet and words careful. Her large (e/c) eyes flicked down to look at his Captain America book bag, the corners of her mouth twitched upwards into the tiniest of smiles. "I like your backpack, my dad likes Captain America a lot... He reads me comic books about him at bedtime, he's his favorite superhero." Alfred grinned his 'Hollywood smile' when (Name) mentioned one of his prized possessions.
"Your dad has great tastes then! Captain America is pure awesome! Has he read you- hey, what do you got there?" The high school boy was about to go on a superhero rant when he noticed his small companion pull out a black rectangle. That finally got an actual smile out of the withdrawn child as she answered, "A 3DS, it was released a few days ago to stores." "AWESOME! I forgot that was coming out! I was so busy studying for my exam, hey little dudette, can I see it?" (Name) nodded and passed the device to the excited teenager; he opened it and turned it on, grinning as he messed around on the menu and turning off & on the 3D option. While the American was distracted, the (h/c) haired girl carefully took the papers that had laid in his lap and looked through them very gingerly as to not rip them accidentally. Alfred noticed his little friend's nose crunch up at the sight of messy math problems littering the worksheet; he exchanged them for the console.
"I guess you don't like math very much, (Nickname)!" Alfred laughing, patting (h/c) hair, "It's okay, I didn't like it much until I got the hang of it then I found it was pretty fun." (Name) stared at the teenager with unconvinced eyes, "Math? How can it be fun?" The blond only grinned and pulled out a fresh sheet of paper and showed some ways to learn the multiplication table easier, "I remember 8x8=64 because I think of Nintendo 64!" "Oh yeah, Daddy had one of those!"
"(Name)! Time to go home!" a female voice rang out as kids were already starting to leave, the sun was beginning to set.
"See you tomorrow, Alfred?" "See you tomorrow, little dudette, I'll be armed with a 3DS too. Say hey to your dad for me too!"
