The Apartment Above the Groovy Tunes, Saturday Morning
All said, Jono had slept in far worse places than the floor. He'd pulled out enough blankets to make the whole experience not terrible after Rinoa and Squall's arrival last night, and Joni had only trampled him a few times. Which, really, wasn't all that different from what she'd be up to if he'd actually slept on his... bed.

His mattress on the floor. At least with Squall here, he had someone he could shake down to help him move his furniture from the Boards. He'd been putting it off a while, now, mostly because it involved actually going back to the Boards a few more times, but with company staying until they could find a place of their own, he really couldn't put that off much longer.

He'd appreciate that he actually had furniture to haul over soon enough. In the meantime, he was giving his kitchen a despairing look. He'd managed to stock the bare minimum before his company had arrived, which mostly involved milk, bread, cereal, and disposable dishes. He'd let Squall and Rinoa figure out proper groceries between them.

[OOC: Open for them what are staying in the apartment, and any kids that might have a reason to be here, too!]

//She's probably somewhere,// Jono replied, //but she knows she's not allowed up on the counters. Counters aren't for Jonis, after all.//

Particularly not while Kathe had a bowl of milk. That could only end poorly.

//But when you're finished, perhaps we can find her.//

"Floors are for Jonis," she said, nodding agreement. "And kisses and hugs and ballerina tutus."

Kathe picked a cookie out of her bowl, ignoring the spoon since it was one of the top cookies, and ate it.

"Is she hiding because there's no seats?"

//That might be it,// Jono agreed. //Or else she's investigating all of the new people around. Making new friends, and all.//

She ate a few more cookies with her fingers before picking up the spoon.

"Can I make new friends after, too?"

//Of course you can, luv. There's Angela and JJ, though they're both a little older than you. If you ask nicely, I'm sure they'd like to play.//

JJ had mentioned wanting a sister, so...

"Everyone's bigger than me," Kathe shared, like Dad hadn't possibly known that already. "Except Joni. She's always littler."

Ignore the fact that Joni wasn't even remotely human and so wasn't comparable here. Kathe certainly was.

"Who're Angela and JJ?"

//That young lady there is Angela,// Jono replied, indicating the dark-haired girl in the living room. //JJ is the boy, there. The one that isn't... Squall.//

Who Jono also pointed out.

//They're family for the next couple of days, all right, luv?//

She followed his introductions with intent concentration but frowned at the end.

"And me too?" she asked anxiously. "Me and Mom are family too, right?"

//Of course you are, Sunshine,// Jono replied, reaching for the hand that wasn't currently occupied with a spoon and giving it a little squeeze.

So tiny! Augh, tiny hands!

//I meant, they're our family for the weekend, yours and mine.//

And just like that, her smile came back.

"Okay," she agreed, clinging to his hand. "And Mom too, right? I didn't see Mom earlier."

//I...// Still had no idea who Mom was! //Haven't seen her, either. I think she's probably out... working?//

He gave her a look to see if 'working' was something that her mother was the sort to do much of. Fingers crossed?

Angela waved back at Jono and the adorable little girl that she guessed was a sister. She was an only child back home; this was sort of novel.

"Hi hi!" Kathe said, once Dad had reassured her that she was still family too. Because that was one of the important part, as far as Kathe's world went.

"Hi!" Angela came over and stuck out her hand to shake, grinning. "I'm Angela."

"I'm Kathe," she said, a bit shyly, but politely reaching to shake hands anyway. "Dad says you're family this weekend."
