Collie Mae still couldn't believe that Kit was actually alive. Well, she had hoped that he was all along. She hadn't ever given up on him. But the fact that he was back with them was something that she had feared would never happen again. Ever since she had found him hiding in Fox's house, she had stopped by to visit for one reason or another nearly every day. First it was just to say that she was dropping in to check on Bear, then once she began to worry that Kit would think that she didn't trust him to care for the puppy she had to come up with other excuses to stop in. Since Kit still didn't remember her, she didn't want to make him uncomfortable by saying that she just wanted to see him. It had seemed like things would have to be taken slow. And she was fine with that.

It had been a couple of weeks with nearly daily visits to Victor's Village just to see Kit. Today when she made her way to the house where she knew that Kit would be, she had to walk through a downpour. It hadn't been raining when she had left her house, it was just one of those storms that show up in the middle of summer with no warning. She wasn't complaining, though, because it had been far too hot before it had begun to rain. Now, it was at least a little more bearable in the already hot District Ten.

Though, she knew that now she would have to track water all through the house when she got there to visit Kit... She was sure that Fox wouldn't mind a little water on his fancy plush carpets. At least, she hoped that he wouldn't. If he did then he really would have changed a lot more than she thought. After all, how many times when they were kids had they gone down to play in the muddy creek behind their houses and returned to his family's home covered from head to toe in mud and dripping wet? And they had never been happier.

Once she made it to the door, she didn't bother knocking. Collie Mae very rarely knocked. And especially not when it was absolutely pouring the rain down in buckets. She let herself into the door and hurried to close it behind her. Her hair was plastered to her face where the rain had ran through it and she shivered a bit upon stepping into the cooler house, one of the benefits of being a victor, she guessed. ”Kit! Fox! Anyone home!?!” She called out as she walked through the entry way and to the living room where she hoped she would find at least one of them... Dripping water all the way.

It had been a couple of weeks since Kit had been given Bear. He loved the dog so much. Not that it made him love Dusk any less of course, and the older dog would spend time with Kit all the time, but Bear was his and his responsibility. He took him for small walks, or played ball with him in the yard to get him a workout and he just all over did whatever he could to train him and give him all the love in the world. Collie Mae had been by most days since that first day when she'd given Bear to him, and Kit was starting to feel pretty comfortable around her.

She kept giving reasons for being there, checking on Bear at first, then other reasons, but something told Kit there was a little more to it, because every time she came by she spent quite a lot of time just hanging out with him. She'd learned to interpret his gestures more now, which was nice. Kit enjoyed the company most days. He was glad to be getting more comfortable with people who had used to be in his life, even though it was mostly Fox, Buffalo and Collie Mae at this point in time.

Today he was settled on the couch, watching the rain outside and cuddling Bear. They had been outside for a while before it had started raining, but once it did they'd gone back inside. It was nice to feel like he could be outside, at least in the yard without there being fear anymore. It was nice to start feeling a bit less jittery. Of course he still felt pretty awful sometimes still, he thought maybe that wasn't ever going to go away, and he still avoided crowds and the town center like the plague and refused to go far from the house without anyone else. Still he was doing better.

For the most part. He was finding himself having massive headaches after the memory of Rabbit's reaping had returned to him during the reaping after he'd first been found and since then it seemed like his mind was fighting with itself. The part of him that had filed all the old memories away was trying to keep it that way and the other part who wanted to remember was trying to do so. It was painful. Still, he was much better off now than he had been just a few short weeks ago, and it was nice.

He was just cuddling Bear and making soft little humming noises to him as he heard the door open and then Collie Mae's voice coming through the house, asking if anyone was around. He peeked up over the back of the couch and gave a small wave to show that yes, he was in fact there. When he spotted her his eyes widened a little. She was soaked. He pointed at her then at the bathroom to tell her she should get a towel. She needed to try off, she shouldn't stay all wet or she may get sick.

As her luck would have it, the sky had opened up and decided to pour the rain down while she was on her way to the Village to check in on Kit and Bear. Or at least it was her excuse that she merely wanted to check in on them and make sure that everything was going alright. The truth wasn't quite as simple. She enjoyed being with Kit. She enjoyed seeing him and knowing that he was safe, that he was alright. She was loving getting to know him again and getting to see that there was still pieces of the boy she had always loved still there beneath the surface. He seemed to be getting more comfortable with her as well and she couldn't be happier. But she still kept making excuses for why she was there. She didn't know why.

By the time she had made it to Fox's door and let herself inside, she was soaked. Her hair was plastered to the sides of her face and her clothing clung to her from the excess moisture. But it didn't matter. She called out to make sure that someone was home and the quick gesture of Kit waving over the back of the couch told her that indeed there was someone home. She forgot all about her soaking wet clothes and such as she gave Kit a big smile and a wave of her own. He didn't look to be having a bad day today, though she knew that he had had a few since she had been coming to visit him. She was glad for the days that he wasn't in pain.

While she may have not been worried about the fact that she was soaked, Kit seemed to be. She thought he maybe even looked a little bit worried as he pointed to her and then towards the bathroom. He was probably telling her to go and get dried off. By this point in time she could read his gestures pretty well. She walked into the bathroom and returned with a big fluffy towel in hand, using it to dry her hair as she walked over to the couch where Kit was. Though, she didn't sit on it because she didn't want to get it all wet. So, she instead sat on the floor in front of Kit like she had the first time she had found him here. She wrapped the towel around her shoulders. ”Started pouring when I was about half way here.” She explained in way of greeting, a smile on her lips as she did so.

Kit was indeed having a decent day. There was always sort of a weird pressure in his head these days, but at least it wasn't hurting right now and that was nice. He smiled as she gave him a huge smile and waved at him, then disappeared into the bathroom to get the towel he had wanted her to go get. That was something at least. She was reading his gesture correctly and came back out with one of the towels from the bathroom. Good. It was nice to know that she was getting to the point where she mostly understood what he was trying to say.
At least in the bigger picture of things.

It was hard to get anything beyond the basics across even though he and Buffalo had worked on some signs and given them meaning. He could communicate pretty well with Buffalo now. Mostly because they had worked pretty intensely on it and Kit had insisted that they work on it even when his head was giving him issues. He just wanted to at least be able to communicate to some degree. that was the important part to him. Nothing else. Even though it would be nice to be able to say all the things he wanted to say as easily as everyone else did it.

She came back and sat at the end of the couch and he sent her a small smile as she did. He nodded as she explained that it had started raining while she was on her way here and that's why she was all soaked. It made sense. It wasn't long since Kit and Bear had come inside either. They had just been playing when the rain started. He pointed to the back yard and made a slight throwing motion to try to tell her that's what they'd been doing when the rain started. Playing fetch.
