"See? There you go. Perfect cover," Isaac remarked. He couldn't help but worry if his cover stood nearly as strongly. Sure, he had Elliot with him, and the two of them could vouch for each other. However, neither of the two were much for danger. Especially in Elliot's case, his bad leg made him very homebound. If he was to get suspiciously injured, such as today, they could get in serious trouble. It would be almost impossible to hide what was going on, and their mother was normally a rather hypervigilant woman. How were they supposed to sneak anything past her, once she snapped out of this weird funk?
No time to think about that, though. It was dinnertime! Isaac couldn't help but laugh a bit as Jeremy basically blinked out of the room. How did someone so big move so fast? Isaac took advantage of the brief alone time to clear his head. He didn't need to keep worrying about this. Elliot was all better now, and a bit of time would ease the wound for sure. Their mother wouldn't find out what they've been up to. Next time, he'd be far better at keeping his little brother protected. Everything was going to be okay, one way or another. Feeling a bit more at ease, the boy left to go head to the kitchen. Best not to keep Alicia waiting, after all.
Elliot was already fawning over the food by the time Isaac arrived. "It smells so good! You're gonna love this, Isaac," he said, voice bursting with cheer. There was no better way to help Isaac feel better than seeing that his brother had fully come back. Of course, Alicia's wonderful cooking was solidly vying for second place on the cheer priority list. With good food, great friends, and a no longer shell-shocked little brother, Isaac couldn't help but melt into a grin.
"Incredible as always, Alicia. You always know how to turn a day around," he said. There were so many ways in which that was true.
