"Can you recite some Garvald language, Lein?" Maxine asked. She was lying her chest on the bed, wriggling her feet on the back and holding a quill on her hand while Maxlein - infront of her- was sitting in crossed leg.
"Actually, I am not listening to my teachers so I knew nothing..." Maxlein replied with hesitance and looked away while scratching his not itchy cheek. Maxine looked at him in awe but before Maxine could say anything, Maxlein said something.
"But! I heard you were eagerly learning the other language yourself." Maxlein commented. He felt weird complimenting his sister but he ignored it and forcefully pushed it deep inside him.
He would never let his insecurities overpower him again.
Once was never enough, it was too much to bear for her.
