AQUILA HOLDS SIRIUS' CHIN GENTLY AS SHE LOOKS HIM OVER.
Aquila: So it's around your eyes...

PANEL 2
SHE HAS SIRIUS TILT HIS HEAD DOWN.
Aquila: ...and your hairline, and ear tips...

PANEL 3
AQUILA LEANS BACK THOUGHTFULLY. ORION AND LUKAS CAN BE SEEN TALKING IN THE BACKGROUND ABOUT WHATEVER IT IS LUKAS HAS DRAWN.
Aquila: ... Y'know, if your hair comes in banded, like Charlie's? You might be able to cut the black parts off when it gets long enou--
Sirius cuts her off: It isn't gonna have time to get long enough.

PANEL 4
SIRIUS IS LOOKING UP AT HER, FRUSTRATED.
Sirius: Ben's gonna fix it when he gets back.

PANEL 5
AQUILA WATCHES HIM, PUZZLED.
Aquila: ... Why can't Jay do it?
Sirius: Because he can't do anything right, and he's a liar.

PANEL 6
SIRIUS STARES DOWN AT HIS LAP, GROWING MORE FRUSTRATED. AQUILA WATCHES HIM, CONCERNED.
Aquila: What did he say?

PANEL 7
SIRIUS IS PUSHING HARD INTO HIS PILLOW WITH HIS FISTS.
Sirius: He just said it can't be fixed. He didn't give a reason.

PANEL 8
AQUILA CONTINUES, TRYING TO BE GENTLE.
Aquila: ... Why would he lie about that?

PANEL 9
SIRIUS STARES DOWN, GLARING AT NOTHING, CLEARLY ANGRY.

PANEL 10
SIRIUS SUDDENLY THROWS THE PILLOW ACROSS THE ROOM AND IT HITS THE WALL WITH A PAF SOUND, NEARLY HITTING LUKAS AND ORION, WHO DODGE IT.
Sirius, yelling: I don't know!?

PANEL 11
SIRIUS IS YELLING AT AQUILA.
Sirius: Maybe because he's too much of a coward to go ask iris himself? Or it's because I bit him once?

PANEL 12
Sirius: Or maybe it's because I'm friends with the only kid here he doesn't like! Who knows!?
ORION LOOKS SURPRISED THAT SIRIUS WOULD BRING THAT UP.

PANEL 13
ORION GLARES AT HIM, ANGRY.
Orion: You're being paranoid.

PANEL 14
Sirius: What?

PANEL 15
ORION CONTINUES TO GLARE. HIS EXPRESSION IS BOTH CALM AND SEETHING.
Orion: You heard me.

PANEL 16
ORION STANDS UP, WALKING ACROSS THE BED TO APPROACH SIRIUS.
Orion: If he really wanted to hurt you, he wouldn't have taken you to the doctor to begin with. You're clearly not dying, or anything.

PANEL 17
SIRIUS WATCHES ORION AS HE APPROACHES, FROWNING.
Orion: But he made her put off another, way more important thounding thing anyway. That'th a big deal for him.

PANEL 18
ORION CONTINUES TO GLARE CALMLY IN SIRIUS DIRECTION AS HE COMES FORWARD.
Orion: He wouldn't jutht do that if he didn't care about you. He hateth talking to other people. he hateth being near other people.

PANEL 19
ORION HAS REACHED SIRIUS. HE GIVES HIM A HARD POKE IN THE CHEST AS HE SPEAKS FOR EMPHASIS, STILL GLARING.
Orion: You matter to him. Don't you dare pretend you don't know that.

PANEL 20
ORION STANDS UP STRAIGHT AGAIN, STARING DOWN AT SIRIUS.
Orion: Now quit acting like a total brat, and be grateful you're not the one he'th got a weird problem with.
