"You have got to be kidding me." Guppy says, as he leads a very smug-looking four-year-old girl into the bar.

Brooke is looking very pleased with herself. This is because she today learned how to climb on the sink, and as a result, has reached the cupboard and successfully shaved the right half of her head.

Guppy crouches next to her, examining the remaining hair, wondering if it will sort of comb over.

"Brooke, your mum is going to kill me, you can't have half your head shaved."

"Yeah I can. I'm a rock star!" Brooke says, miming an air guitar and accompanying it with some 'neow neow neow' noises.

"We're going to have to shave the rest of it off to match." Guppy decides.

"No way!"

"Yes way! Or at least we have to tidy it up somehow."

Little help?

Well. There's someone nearby, pretending he isn't hung over and regretting a few of his choices the night before. Wilford's obviously been in a fight at some point during the last 12 hours, if his face and bent-up glasses are anything to go by. But he hasn't been home yet to swap them out for contacts or his spare frames.

The commotion at the door catches his attention, from where he's lounging by the fire, and he can't help but laugh at the flustered parent trying to act reasonable.

"Side cuts are in right now," Wilford points out. "The kid knows what she likes. Why do you gotta bring her down?"

Or is this not helpful?

"Clean up the edge, and it'll be fine," Wilford says. "Dye the tips blue or purple. Let the kid express herself."

What is it with parents trying to make their kids perfect little clones of themselves?

The 'pink nose beard' comment actually gets a chuckle from Wilford, rather than his traditional huffy sigh and a roll of his eyes. He's never heard that one before.

"She sure soundsl ike it," Wilford agrees, probably deliberately winding the kid up at this point. "What's your band called?"

He doesn't care about school cop-outs. Winding the kid up is more fun.

Wilford ignores Guppy's glare. The kid's loud, and already making his headache worse, but Wilford's in exactly the sort of 'everything is awful' mood that just makes him want to spread the feeling around a bit.

"Can you play us a song?" he asks.

He's pretty sure she can.

Yep, kind of regretting it, but Wilford puts on a good show of not wanting to just roll over and die right now.

"We need to get you a record deal," he says.

"Side ponytail? Or shave it all down."

That's all Tess has right now.

"Away from the half that's shaved. Or maybe cut it down a little?"

Tess tilts her head at the girl, thinking.

"It was a pretty big trend a few years ago, half head shaved. I'm sure Bar could show you plenty of styles that will work with it until it grows out."

"Teachers need to be a little more flexible when dealing with children this age. You never know what they'll do."

She smiles at Brooke.

She crouches down to the girl's height.

"You know, I wasn't even in school at your age. I bet you're pretty smart."

Looking back up at Guppy,

"And I bet hair cutting is the least of the problems they have to deal with. I mean, what do they expect you to do? You can't put it back on."

"Ai ya. Sandhu-sensei, I am afraid it is a lost cause: she needs the attention of a professional."

(No, Seimei's not a fox this time.)

"On the bright side, she does not appear to have hurt herself." It could have been worse!
yinyangwizard: (Heh)

[personal profile] yinyangwizard 2016-11-13 03:11 am (UTC)(link)
Seimei kneels down on the floor so he's at eye level with Brooke. "What exactly were you trying to do, Brooke-chan? Become a Buddhist nun? It is best to wait until you are older before making that sort of decision," he says, absolutely deadpan.
yinyangwizard: (Heh)

[personal profile] yinyangwizard 2016-11-17 01:14 am (UTC)(link)
"That would have been my second guess," Seimei says evenly. "What instrument do you play, Brooke-chan? Or do you sing?"

"Indeed! Although how one wears one's hair is a matter of personal preference," Seimei says. "Or one's parents' preference, as the case may be."

Sorry, Brooke. Seimei does find this funny, but he's ultimately on your dad's side here.
