Kale’s offhand comments are in Ceannic at first, but he switches to Sønska once he starts actually responding to Leif.
And since this is one of the lowest-web-traffic times of the year, I’m taking a filler week. Come back Saturday for the return of regular updates, and the rest of the storyline!
Leif (thinking): Do I have the right account? I’m sure he had a profile pic before . . .
#8F3A31/leif: Hi, is this Kale from the party? You’re the only one Thorn has friended, but your profile is so blank I wasn’t sure / also this is Leif / From the party
Kale: Well, yeah, it’s blank! I’ve only had it for 2 years. . . . after Facetbook turned my original one into a memorial shrine for all the people I killed. Probably shouldn’t tell him that.
Kale (typing): Yes, it’s that Kale / I don’t like posting too much on Facetbook / But I still check it, so you can pm me if you want to say hi
Kale: Ugh . . . There’s so much I can’t tell him. What does that leave for “normal person” small talk?
Kale (typing): Doing anything interesting today?
Tilda: Hey, shove over! You’re not the only one who wants time on the net.
Leif: Sorry, Tilda! Logging off now.
Kale: . . . No answer.
Obviously. He wants to be Facetbook friends, not friends friends.
#8F3A31/leif: nothing interesting at all lol / It’s the season where I spend 100% of the day raking leaves / How about you?
Kale: Wh — Ohhhh. He was never blowing me off, he just has work, and I’m a killer and an idiot.
