    Centi was very early to the meeting she was having with her Secret Santa partner. Very early. Right after class, she made right for the cafeteria and filled her belly with food. Or, well, as much as you can fill an infinite void. To clean up her mess, she ate the plates and utensils, which were all plastic. Then, while she waited for her partner to come, she let herself rest her eyes on the table, keeping a protecting arm around her present.

    Anh Sang wanted art related stuff, so she had bought a bag of those Copic markers artists seemed to rave about. From her research online, they were apparently really good markers... and really expensive to buy in bulk. So Centi just picked out a couple of human skin and hair tones, then some primary colors. If the blending with the markers were as good as people said it was, this should be a perfect gift.

    Anh Sang was early because her parents had taught her to be but she wasn't super early. Only maybe about five minutes. Personally, she thought that her partner had weird interests. Cleaning was strange anyways. Eating was. Fine? Anh Sang supposed that she liked eating, too.

    She came to the meeting place with her gift wrapped up in a red box with a sparkly golden bow. The slip she had gotten said that Centi liked homemade things so Anh Sang had made a small model of the galaxy with a mixture of sparkly stones, glitter, and pure light magic. Pluto, of course, was in it. Because Pluto was a planet.

    Excitedly, she bounced to the person she thought was her partner. The centipede like body was kind of a give away. "Hi, hi!" she said. "Are you Centi?"

    Oh, her partner was finally here. Sooner than Centi expected, or that may have been because sleeping jumbled up her perception of time. Nevertheless, she pushed her upper body up and greeted her partner with a large, toothy smile.

    "Hello... I am! Are you... Anh Sang? I hope I got... something... that will make your day."

    Centi's mouth widened further into an awfully unnatural smile upon seeing her gift. A small model? This was more than Centi expected. She needed to handle this with great care. "This is... wonderful. You are a... great artist! Speaking of... art."

    Centi was giddy with excitement as she gently sat her model down onto the table and handed her bag over to Anh Sang. "Mine is not... much... but I hope that you can use it... to make many... good things."

    This was sooo cool! Anh Sang practically had stars in her eyes. Centipedes were, like. They were bugs, yeah, and bugs were kind of icky but somebody who was part centipede was just awesome.

    "It's nothing much," she blushed. "It's just, I really like art!" Eagerly, she took her own gift and, after a glance at Centi to verify that she wanted her to open it, did so. She squealed with joy, "Copics? You got me Copics? Oh my God, they're so expensive, I love them, thank you!"

    She stopped to take a breath. "Can, can I hug you?"

    These were one of the times where Centi suddenly had a burst of energy. Enough to feel like she could stay awake during one entire class. She had even noticed her speaking sped up during these times. It was a weird feeling, but one that she overlooked most of the time.

    "I only got what I thought were basics colors... but I had a lot of money leftover. I'm very happy you... enjoy it." It was easy to save money when you ate trash and could sleep anywhere you wanted. All she needed to use her money on was a good stock of cleaning supplies.

    "Yes! I would love... a hug..." She opened her arms, careful to keep her claws out of the way. "If you don't mind, may I see some of your art with the copics after this? I think you'll make... something very beautiful."

    "Oh... yes... phone. Ummm... Telling you my number would be... easier. My claws make holding some things... difficult. Do you have paper and... a pen?"

    Centi's smile faded just a bit upon hearing Anh Sang's self-deprecating words. "And it's not good... to compare yourself to others... I think what really matters... is making sure your works show your passion... That's how I know something is good."

    "I dunno," Anh Sang said with a shrug as she released the hug. Shuffling through her backpack quickly, she found a bit of lined paper and handed it to Centi. "I like to make things but looking back at everything I've done before, it just seems kind of dumb, you know? I need to get better. I want to make better things!"
