I’ll give you a little context on this week’s Six. Bran is Nathaniel’s godson. He was injured about two chapters ago and the heroine, who hasn’t realized what her hero (or his godson) is yet, sent a balloon bouquet and a teddy bear as get well gifts.
“It’s no joke,” Nathaniel said. “You just had a handful of zeros shaved off your age.”
Tilting his head to one side, Bran entered a staring match with the stuffed toy, as if he couldn’t decide what to make of it. “Is there a reason your friend thinks I’m Little League material?”
“My friend thinks I’m human. That makes you human by default.”

The toy's going to win the staring match. Just sayin'…
*snort* You're probably right, Dee. Poor Bran was unconscious again two paragraphs later. As to whether or not he ended up sleeping with Mr. Bear. *zips lips*

That's great. I'm assuming he's too old for a teddy bear?
Yes, by a few thousand years. 🙂
