Mitz grins and scribbles That's easy before putting the pencil down and saluting Snooze.

Mitz smiles and signs 'good job', then writes it down so Snooze understands.

Snooze copies that one, too, reading off the piece of paper. He does it a couple of times, watching his hands, then without looking at them, smiling at Mitz instead. Then he reaches for the paper. What about your name?

Mitz tilts his head, then signs out the letters slowly. He might not think it's very elegant looking in sign language.

Snooze gestures for him to repeat it, and copies along as he goes. Then he signs 'hello Mitz'.

Mitz beams and pats Snooze's chest, then slowly signs out his name, like he did for 'Mitz'. He replies "Hello, Snooze."

Snooze may be getting a touch emotional then. It's the first time he's been able to communicate with anyone without resorting to pen and paper--and who uses that to say hello?--in a very long time.

Mitz just smiles slightly at Snooze. He knows the look - he knows the feeling. He went a very long time understanding everyone and not being able to communicate back. He's seen more doctors than he cares to ever again because of how he is. Being able to talk to people is a gift he would never give up. Being able to talk to people like Snooze, who might consider Mitz a friend after this, even better.

Mitz nods, smiling wider. It's what Snooze is here for. But it's nice to help.

Snooze probably spends all of recess bugging Mitz for basic conversation.

Which is a new experience for Mitz, seeing as he can't talk. He's never been bugged for conversation, basic or otherwise, ever. Unless Jerel thought that he was upset about something and kept at him until he signed or wrote it all out. Mitz loves that Snooze wants to talk to him. It's nice.

Snooze likes being able to talk to anyone, and he's fast coming to like talking to Mitz in particular. He makes everything seem so simple and pleasant. It's nice.

They'll probably end up swapping notes and signing slowly all recess, and end up nearly late to the next class. Hopefully they're in the same class, now. Mitz hopes they are. He may scribble something out about seeing Snooze's timetable, if it's okay.

Snooze would show him happily. He probably hasn't had a friend since he left real school; the other foster kids and him would have avoided each other or fought, mostly. He almost can't believe he made a friend here on his first day. First lesson, first five minutes, really.

Mitz scans Snooze's timetable quickly, memorising it. It doesn't even occur to him that it might be creepy. He just wants to share classes with someone he can talk to. And he's hoping they'll share a class with Mouse, so he can point her out to Snooze. Mitz can't really explain why, since he definitely realises that his watching of Mouse could be seen as creepy, but he wants to anyway.

Mitz nods, then marks down the classes they share on the timetable. It's a pretty small school, and Mitz goes to a lot of the deaf classes since his condition isn't very common. There are maybe five or six other dumb kids in the entire place. This means they share just over half of all classes - more than Mitz thought they were going to have.

Snooze is excited when he sees how many Mitz is marking down. All his signing classes, math, science. 'Awesome', he mouths, and writes it down at the same time.

Mitz smiles, agreeing. He's this close to asking Snooze if he wants to hang out after school - Mitz has never been able to ask someone that! - but he stops himself. Wait a week, Mitz, you idiot.

Actually, his exact thinking here is: Wait until he has better friends so he can effectively schedule his time with you, because if you ask him now then he'll feel bad when he has to figure out a way to let you down gently. Be nice. Be considerate.

To be fair, Snooze is looking forward to making friends with other people, too, but Mitz will always be the first friend he made here, the first friend he made in years--and the first one to honestly communicate with him by sign. Mitz is going to have first claim on his time.

Mitz is just a worried thing. He talks to other kids and he helps out with signing and other things like math and science, when he can or when he's asked to, and there's no kid at the school that he dislikes or dislikes him, really. But he hasn't made any friends. Just no enemies. I would say the other dumb children in the school are older than him and in their own cliques and things, keeping him a little separate. And he does tend to keep to himself and try to stay out of anyone's way. But he's hoping he gets a friend in Snooze. He thinks that would be really pleasant. And he likes Snooze. He hopes he stays.

Snooze wants to stay. Seeing how good this school might be for him, and having already made a friend--and no doubt he'll meet Thad and Willow in other classes, and be sure to introduce them to Mitz--he'll clean up his sullen act at Romana's and try to stay.

Romana will be pleased. She's intensely fond of Snooze, and he tugs at a maternal side of her that she wasn't entirely sure was there at all until she met him. She probably considered the possibility of adoption within the first week, but held off to make sure he was happy where he was with her.

Once he lets himself relax and enjoy living with her, then he'll realise that she actually does make him happy. She makes him feel safe and comfortable, like no foster mother ever has before, and he'll find himself opening up to her.

That's good. Very good. And they must live close-ish to Mitz and Mouse, too. Which will come in handy once they all start spending time together.

(I'm seriously trying to remember how we figured this out. I know there was something about Mitz tapping Morse code on Mouse's hand, and that was how that worked, but I can't get to a point where all three of them can talk before Snooze is comfortable using his voice. Or, wait, until Mitz gets his voice box thingie.)

And Snooze will want all of his friends to meet his brilliant foster mother.

(Well, Mouse can talk, and Mitz can hear her and sign it to Snooze, or Snooze can lip-read. Then Mitz and Mouse can do the Morse code thing, so long as Mouse says what he's saying so Snooze can lip-read that, too, unless it's private, of course. And Snooze can sign at Mitz for him to communicate it to Mouse. It'll probably be the frustration at the lack of direct communication that motivates Snooze to finally try speaking out loud again.)
