They were seated at the same table as always.
" Oh, Lyewa-"
" Just Prima is fine! I like hearing my name," he said quickly. " I'd feel better about it if you all called me that."
Lina blushed deep red.
" Is that really okay?"
" Wille calls Lyena by his given name all the time, so why not?"
She got out a box from her bag, and set it on the table.
" Well, Prima, I, thought maybe you hadn't had it in a while, so I baked you a thing... A vaad cake... Since I only know how to make traditional things..."
" Ah! The head chef at the palace used to slip me these, sometimes. Thank you," he said.
Avett sat up, leaned across the table.
" I- I'll bring you something tomorrow, too!" she said hurriedly.
" Right, that's fair," Lina said, still red.
Prima smiled at them, though internally he was panicking slightly over suddenly being assailed with that level of affection.
" Ah, don't worry about it so much, just being here with you all is enough for me," he said. " I'm grateful you all care so much..."
" I'll bring you something too!" Kada said. " If it's all of us, it's fine, right?"
" Ah, but how will I pay you all back? You're really being too kind..."
" Just being around you is good enough, really!"
The cake was good.
