"Okay but don't laugh," He warned, his cheeks flushed in embarrassment and Poppy tilted her head in fascination. Humans changed color according to their emotions then? She had never seen anything like it before.
"I won't. I promise." She begged, she was curious as to what he was hiding from her that made him so nervous.
"It's...well," He hesitated, scratching the back of his neck. "You heard of aliens and UFO's, shit like that right?" Poppy blinked. Did he find out her secret already? She was disappointed, she hoped she would have more time to have fun with it and tease him.
"It's silly, but I kind of...believe in that type of stuff. The supernatural, I mean."
Elliot Ward was your secondary class nerd. He believed in everything supernatural, especially aliens. He never thought in his life he would actually come across a real one; much less a reckless, purple haired woman who crash landed in his backyard and happened to know nothing about his kind.
A group of adult nerds were definitely not suited for teaching an alien how to live on earth, much less hiding her powers from the human eyes but fate didn't leave them much of a choice. Especially when the alien seemed to think of Elliot as her pet.
