she smiled and kissed his cheek. "it'll be okay, we can buy more if we have to." she said and looked up at jasper when he came in. "plus we have jasper to help."
[b "Having Storm around certainly helps the situation. We won't have to worry about dry fields if she's here to manipulate the weather into raining. We might actually have a successful farm by next month,"] he beamed.
Jean and Hank must have organised some help because when they walked into the dining hall, it was already set and ready for their meal. [b "Is it bad that I'm banking on at least one of these crystal wine glasses to be broken before the end of dinner? Have they even met us? We're hazards to be around,"] Alex picked one up delicately. [b "It probably cost more than my car back home."]
she nodded and kissed him. "i like that idea."
[b "I think if we try to assign them jobs on the farm that make use of their natural skills, they might be more inclined to accept our offer. If one of them has agricultural knowledge, that'd be even more helpful,"] Alex sighed. [b "The only farming experience I have is growing a flower in a milk carton project at school, and then it died three days later."]
she rolled her eyes at scott and looked up at alex. "alright." she said and kissed his cheek. "first we should tell them about our plans to make a farm that'll help everyone."
Scott began backing away down the hall. [i "You're marrying into this family of dorks. Remember that!"]
Rolling his eyes, Alex threw an arm around her shoulders and turn in the opposite direction. [b "Let's ignore that idiot and focus on the pressing matter. Dinner with our guests awaits and we need to figure out what jobs we're going to give them."]
she laughed and separated them shaking her head. "dorks."
[i "I begged Mom and Dad for a brother, and I get stuck with this idiot,"] Scott rubbed his knuckles into Alex's scalp.
[b "By order of the royal family, I demand you stop noogying me!"] Alex struggled. [b "This has to be treasonous!"]
He flailed a hand out to Ari. [b "I'm a damsel in distress, I need help."]
she laughed and watched them. "because you're siblings that's why."
It was Alex's turn to mock Scott. [b "I very much doubt any proposal he attempts is going to be cool or romantic. It will be the epitome of cheesy and cliche."]
Scott lunged forward and grabbed his brother in a headlock. [i "Why are you always a pain in my ass?"] he grit his teeth as the two struggled against one another to break free.
She laughed slightly and kissed Alex's cheek. "My advice... Just be you when you do it." She said and smiled before poking scott. "Same goes for you with jean."
[b "Holy hell, that's romantic,"] Alex could imagine the dedication that went into a proposal like that. [b "Should I brush up on my art skills?"]
[i "You should brush up on all of your skills. Starting with manners and etiquette. We can have Hank teach you those,"] Scott clapped him on the shoulder. [i "As for the proposal, those are some big shoes to fill. I wish you both luck."]
"since my mom loved art, my dad studied it in secret." she said and smiled. "he made a little animated flipbook of their story and then at the end, it had the special question." she smiled and said. "when she was done flipping through, he was on one knee with my grandmother's ring."
[b "Very much. I need to know what kind of proposal standard I'm going up against here. I wanna make it good and I need some inspiration,"] Alex agreed, wishing he had a notebook on him to jot down ideas.
[i "I'll get ours out of the way,"] Scott interjected. [i "Our dad proposed to our mother over ice cream at their favourite lake. How much grander is your parents' engagement story?"]
She laughed and said. "She fell for him because he always made her laugh." She smiled and said. "A few years later after them being in constant contact my dad proposed to her and they got married." She snickered and asked. "You two want to hear how he asked don't you?"
