Octavian sighed, having arrived already. He knocked on the door, his eyes dull.
The door opened, and Cory glanced at him. “Oh hello Octavian. Glad you could make it.” He glanced over him. “You feeling alight?”
"I’m feeling fantastic. Best I’ve ever felt in ages." He replied sarcastically "Yes. I’m fine. Can I come in?"
Cory moved aside, not saying anything, thou he saw his emotions. “Mallory’s upstairs at the end of the hall.”
He nodded, walking to where she was.
The door at the end of the hall was open. Two guys stood by recording equipment, and Mallory was standing in a sound room, a headset on. She saw Octavian and brightened, smiling and waving.
He waved, cracking a tiny smile. It was rare that he smiled.
The men finished, one turning on the equipment. He spoke into an intercom. “Ok miss Saberlinx. Whenever your ready.” She nodded. “Ok. Go ahead.” The man nodded, starting the music. The intro to City on Our Knees, by TobyMac began playing. Mallory closed her eyes, placing a hand on the headset.
