Kirah kept to a quiet corner of the party, but Nico approached her.

“There’s a thing I wanna ask you. Why do you pretend you’re human?”

“You’re drunk.”

“A bit, yeah. But you’re a troll. You’ve got a tail under those skirts.”

“It’s very rude to bring up… oddities like that.”

“Yeahbut. You’re a troll. I saw you lick sweet wrappers.”

“Do you want to pretend humans don’t like sweets?”

“Rarely that much. Why’d a troll pretend to be human, anyway?”

“Humans don’t like trolls?”

“Oh. That’s stupid of them.” Nico frowned into the middle distance briefly. “I like you.”

Sure, but will you still like me when you're sober? ;-)

Yes. Yes, she will.

Ahhhh, I like how you did the subtle reveal at the end. Cool story!

Thank you!
