Myrrh waved him off his rambling. "Like, don't worry about it. You asked and that's cool. Better than being called a garuda or something, like, people see wings and guess whatever dumb thing comes to their head. At least no ones called me an angel or something." Myrrh had nothing against angels, but not everyone with wings was one.

"Phoenix, like, fire and ashes?" Myrrh let out a low whistle, a little impressed. That would explain the null bracelet. Fire tended to be a bit. . . chaotic. "Yeah, birds of a feather." Myrrh agreed. It was like someone flipped a switch and now Myrrh was pleasant and engaged, his earlier annoyance practically forgotten. "Wouldn't mind if I could turn claws into feet. I'd cause waaaay less damage, like, yeah." Sometimes sharp talons could be such a pain.

"Uh. Yea. Fire. Ash. Rebirth. Whole nine...."

Rebirth. Yea that was the hard one. Aj still struggled with the idea that he had actually died. It was something he was slowly working through but didn't know how he would deal with it when it happened again.

"Y-you could get a charm. One that gave you feet if you wanted."

A hand rubbed the back of his neck as he smiled a little bit. The damage bit Aj understood. It was definitely why he had the nullification bracelet.

"I understand accidentally destroying things. Unfortunately. It was a bit of a shock waking up and having fire wings."

"Rebirth sounds like a pain. Like, experiencing birth once is enough. Who wants to burst into flames to do it all over again?" Myrrh shook his head, the logic of him beyond him. Though, magic and the supernatural was often illogical. "I could, yeah, but I've heard those are a pain to get these days. Besides, I don't think my parents would like it, they don't like any kind of body altering magics 'cause it goes against the Bible or something. I don't know, I don't read it."

He didn't even read the hymms in church and sorta half-mumbled along with the singing. There was an art to sounding like you were singing along when you really weren't. Myrrh's eyes lit up at the mention of fire wings. "So you can, like, fly and stuff? That's cool. And fire wings? Dude, that's like, way out there.

"Maybe when you get control of your fire or something we could go flying." Really, Myrrh liked any opportunity to show off how fast and dexterous he was.

"Y-yea. It is not fun. In theory I shouldn't do that anymore o-once my powers finish coming in. Then it'll only be even I uh...die."​
A grimace came to his face when he mentioned dying. It was still strange to think that he was now essentially immortal.​
"My parents thought the same about tattoos and piercings. I tried telling them it was like decorating your temple. Yea... didn't go well."​
Aj laughed softly at the memory. He was starting to only remember the good times with his family and was grateful for that.​
When Myrrh mentioned he'd like to go flying sometime, Aj smiled and seemed to brighten up a little.​
"I'd like that. The flying is a little easier to control. I'm not so worried about plummeting out of the sky anymore. Just not that fast or nimble yet."​

To Myrrh it looked and sounded like AJ had done enough dying and rebirth. Must be rough to go through that, and not even know when it'll be done. But Myrrh could get parents. "Yeah, mine say the same thing about piercings, even though, like, they act like I'm going to work at some desk job and that my future boss won't hire me because I put some metal on my body." He rolled his eyes to show exactly what he thought about that.

"Those things come with practice. I was born with grace and speed, but I got even better." His species was made to go fast. To be fast and dexterous so they could snatch food from the hands of their prey. "We can trade numbers. And set up a time to meet up and fly. I can give you some pointers and stuff."

"I can tell. Especially with how well you take care of your wings. That has to do nothing but help as well."​
Aj was actually getting excited at the thought of mabe making a friend. Someone that was wanting to do something other than just work on a project they had together. A quick nod came as he fumbled to pull his phone out.​
"Hey yea. That's a great idea. I'd really appreciate any help I can get. I've got these....gifts....I might as well learn and enjoy them right?"​
A big thing his therapist had told Aj, was to look at his abilities as gifts. Ones he can learn and use. Instead of looking at them as a curse, or something he should repress since he couldn't control them yet. It was a hard mindset to get into, but he was trying.​

He did a gentle flap of his wings at the compliment. Myrrh would deny this forever, but much of his emotions were expressed through his wings. They moved in various ways when pleased, embarrassed or for things like anger and annoyance. A gentle, light flap was a good sign of happiness. Sometimes he caught the motions and stifled them, but he didn't catch it this time.

Myrrh pulled out his phone and opened a new contact. "Yeah! Like, if you can fly why not fly? I'm telling you, nothing feels better than being in the air. Well, I mean, it feels great." Myrrh pushed past that little bit of awkwardness by telling AJ his number.

"Text me when you've got time to fly." He said after saving AJ's contact. "I've usually got time right after school if I don't have a gardening club meeting. And mom and dad don't mind me being out so long as I get home in time for dinner."

Aj smiled when he got his number. He sent Myrrh a quick message to make sure he had his number as well. Aj chuckled a little bit at his excitement over flying.​
"I can imagine. It's still one of those things I'm getting used to. I'm used to only thinking about flying in a plane."​
Aj rubbed the back of his neck as he left out a small laugh at his own expense.​
"Ok sounds good. I can't wait. I'm free pretty much any time after school. I don't really know many people so..."​

Aj's message got through and Myrrh shot back a fast: got it. In reply. "Dude, I know how planes can fly, but they still make me nervous. I've never ridden in one and I hope I never do." Myrrh would rather trust his own two wings than some giant machine. "We'll go flying soon." He promised.

It was kinda nice knowing Aj didn't have many friends. Though Myrrh's been on the island for far longer he didn't have many friends of his own. Sure he had his acquiescence, people in his class who would do projects with him, but almost no one who wanted to get to know him beyond school or to purchase perfumes.

After the number exchange, Aj smiled and pocketed his phone. It was exciting that he had actually met someone that wanted to hang out, even if it was by accident.​
"I can't wait. But I gotta get going for now. Got some work I need to finish, and I'm sure you gotta fix anything I might have screwed up walking through."​
A smile laugh came out, but it didn't seem nearly as nervous as before. He gave a small wave as he made his way back to his dorm, making sure to pay attention this time.​
