WHAT A PRIVILEGE IT IS TO LOVE —
It wasn't Guru. Thank goodness. "Hello, Lily, i's good ta' see ya' again,"
he spoke quickly and let out deep breaths. "We're doin' alrigh'. I don' think i's anythin' you could 'elp with. Leigh, our chief, went missin'. Awhile ago, he n' I talked about what ta' do if anythin' like this 'appened 'cause our snowseeker, Killua, is still real young ta' be leadin' n' he's real, um... aggressive. Leigh wanted me ta' take over if anythin' happened so... so I'm chief now,"

Pincher would understand more than anyone after all he'd seen Jacob do when Guru had tortured him. He knew it was ridiculous, how much he longed for the other man's companionship when they hadn't known each other for a particularly long time.

He felt his face growing warm but he wasn't sure why. It was just a gift for someone he owed his life to, the least he could do was get him a rubber duck. Still, even knowing the context of the situation that prompted such a gift, Jacob could still tell this was weird and he was sure Lilyspoise would think the same thing.
