    After that whole controversy in the M3C, Sprinkles knew he would need to speak to Sweetpea. Clearly, they had misunderstood what the interview was about and why he had done it. Sweetpea had good intentions, Sprinkles could see that. All they needed to do was talk it out and find a solution that made them both happy. Sprinkles already had that solution, now it was about getting Sweetpea to accept it.

    He knocked on the entrance to their dorm, holding a container of cooked fish for them to share while they talked. Hopefully, this sign of kindness would make Sweetpea more open to a polite conversation. A long, polite conversation.

    Sweetpea was curled up in bed, using their phone to watch some silly cartoons on YouTube. Spring Break was a bit dull - - though they'd struggled at first, Sweetpea had found themself beginning to enjoy school and even looked forward to it, desperate to catch up to their peers. Now that there was no school, perhaps it would be a good time to socialize, but for today, Sweetpea just wanted to watch some cartoons.

    They heard a sound at their door and their ears perked up. Slinking out of their bed, they quietly walked to the door and opened it, assuming it would be their dorm parent.

    It was Sprinkles.

    Sweetpea stared at them.

    "Oh. Hello," they said, still processing how they felt about Sprinkles being in front of their very eyes.

    The door was not shut in his face when Sweeptea saw who it was. A good sign, Sprinkles thought.

    "I thought we should talk about the other day. I brought some fish for us too. Mind if I come in?"

    If Sweetpea had any concept of boundaries, they would have said no. Unfortunately, Sweetpea didn't understand boundaries at all, so when Sprinkles indicated he wanted to come inside, Sweetpea stepped aside to allow him to come in.

    Was this what they wanted? No, but... Sweetpea was incapable of resistance.

    Sprinkles strolled into Sweetpea's place casually, as if he owned the place. He set the container on the table in front of the futon, got some forks and napkins from the kitchen, then laid himself out on the futon

    "I snacked earlier, so you can have more of the fish," he said lazily. "Anyways, I came here to apologize to you about yesterday. I didn't expect things to blow up as much as it did. I was hoping we could make up? Talk things out?"

    The fish on the table was tempting. Sweetpea watched as Sprinkles basically took over the room, and they felt the hairs on the back of their neck begin to rise, very much feeling the urge to hiss at this enemy invading their territory.

    But they didn't. Sweetpea kept standing where they were, eyes fixed on Sprinkles.

    "What do you have to say?" they asked. They didn't hate Sprinkles but they were incredibly frustrated.

    He could sense Sweetpea's patience running out. Time to make this quick.

    "I know you said it's not about who's getting interviewed, but I know the journalist is interested in us. She's a cat-person too."

    He pulled out a note from the pocket of his shorts and sat it on the table. "Here's her phone number and email. Hit her up if you want. I ended up being vague because I didn't ask for permission about everyone else's stories. Didn't want to release personal information I didn't have the right to. Sounds better if we put our own stories out there ourselves."

    Sweetpea couldn't help but to feel a twinge in their heart. Was it guilt? They had really really liked Sprinkles when they first met, but when Sweetpea read the interview it made their blood boil as the true story wasn't told.

    But Sprinkles had always been nice to Sweetpea. Even now they were being polite and friendly. And Sweetpea wondered if maybe they had made a mistake in getting angry.

    "I.. Okay, thank you," they said a bit nervously, beginning to feel embarassed by how they had reacted.

    Sprinkles could see Sweetpea second-guessing themself. He was proud of himself for getting Sweetpea to genuinely consider his words. It was all a big misunderstanding resulting from their volatile emotions. Now, Sprinkles just had to make sure this problem wouldn't happen again.

    "You don't need to thank me. I felt bad and thought I could help you out. I'm part of the Mass Media Club at the school and was thinking, you're clearly very passionate about people understanding what we went through, and I've made a lot of connections already. With the students paying more attention to the news now that the student council elections are coming up, this would be a great time to get your message out there."

    Sweetpeas ears twitched as they thought about what Sprinkles was saying to them. They were still a bit miffed, but Sprinkles was right. How could Sweetpea expect others to tell the story while they hid away out of a fear of crowds?

    The pushed a hair through their hair, exhaling. "You're right," they said. "This is my chance if I want there to be a change."

    Their mind felt overwhelmed at the idea. Telling so many people about the horrors they'd lived through, what happened... All for one reason.

    To break the veil.
