Term was almost over, but Kaylie intended to stay over summer for summer classes. Mostly because she had nowhere else to go and needed the dorms available to her, or she'd end up on the street and that seemed like a bad idea. Unlike the other students that weren't staying over summer, she hadn't bothered cleaning out her dorm or anything. It was kind of strange to be one of the only ones that wasn't packing and getting ready to leave. Eh.
Instead, she'd gone human-looking and done her makeup. After a handful of minutes arguing with herself over it in the mirror, she decided to run off across campus and find Daren; he was usually over here, drawing something, around this time, and - aha! Kaylie scurried over to him and sat down beside him. "It doesn't look weird, does it? I'm not used to makeup colours on human skin tones."
Of course, Daren had never seen her human before, but that didn't cross her mind at any point as being a potential issue. Her voice was the same high-pitched, squeaky tone it always was, except minus the echo, and Daren wasn't an idiot so he could probably figure out it was her. Right? And thus her mind had dropped the entire thought process. More important in this situation was making sure these colours worked with her human skin tone. She thought they did anyway. Pale peach wasn't that much different from pale blue when you only ever wore black, right?
"I also curled my hair," she added. "That doesn't look weird either, does it?" She'd almost forgotten how bad at human-stuff she actually was. Which was funny, because she was raised by a human. Granted, a human male, who didn't know how hair or makeup worked. Maybe the issue here wasn't that she was an alien, but more that she was raised by a single father that was also sickly.
She missed him a lot, from time to time. Now was one of those times.
