"Eh, you know famalies. They decide to do something, and ya gotta go with 'em." He shrugged a little, "Dunno, really... Don't question mum and dad too much, honestly. Just sort of...go with whatever's happening."
Rei shook his head. "I know what ya mean, my parents kept moving us around until..." He slowed down his swinging. "Well until my mum died, after that we decided to just stay here."
"I'm sorry," He said, looking up at the other boy. "That's really sad. I dunno what I'd do if I lost someone in my family."
"You're gonna think I'm odd but sometimes." He jumped off the swing once it wasn't going too high. "But sometimes it's like she isn't even gone." Alissa left him a lot when she left, magical and non magical items. "I guess you could say I believe strongly in an afterlife."
Jesse chuckled softly, "Yeah? Well, you could say I do, too." If only this guy knew... More like....unlife, I guess, but whatever. Similar concepts, right? He thought to himself. "So, I hear hear there's some pretty creepy things that happen around here. Ever seen any of it yourself?"
Rei almost laughed "Creepy no... odd yes." Hell what you think is odd could be happening at my house at any moment. "Ipswich seems to be a magnet for the unusual." He smiled "You moved in to a witchy little town there buddy."
"Yeah? Sounds like I'll fit in perfectly." He grinned. "I like that sorta thing. It's wicked."
"Then you'll fit in perfectly." He shook his head "And already getting used to those annoying Bostonian sayings." He gave a small nod sitting down on the grass. "So you gonna be going to Spenser's?" He could really pin point how old Jesse was exactly so he took a guess he was around his age.
"Yeah," He nodded, "I take night classes, though, with my sister. Well, not with my sister, she's older than me, but...yeah." He nodded a little, grinning.
"Wow never knew they were offering night classes." Rei laughed a bit "What grade are you in?"
"I'm a junior." He nodded a little. "What about you? You go to the school, right?"
"Same 'ere and yeah. I've been going to Spencer's since 8th grade." He gave a small shrug. "I'm guessing your sister would be a senior right?"
"Yup," He nodded, "Kylie. Oh, and I'm Jesse. I don't think I mentioned that before..." He said, frowning slightly.
Rei extended his hand out towards Jesse. "Nice to meet ya." He smiled "The names Rei."
"Hi," He grinned, shaking his hand, nodding. "So, anything interesting to do around this place at night?"
