Jervis continued to sip his tea and sighed.

"I have an excellent idea. Let’s change the subject."

"Sure… I brought biscuits. Don’t forget about those."

"Did you just say biscuits?"

"Yes."

"As in what you Americans call… cookies?”

"Yes."

"Why did you call them biscuits? Not that I’m complaining, just curious. I usually ‘ave to hypnotize Americans into saying biscuits are biscuits."

"Oh, I try to use English English when around English people. My great grandfather on my father’s side was from England, you see. He moved to America to be with my great grandmother. Though he made sure his family didn’t forget where they came from. He was quite the Anglophile."

"Sounds like a good man~"

"It’s good that you keep to your English heritage."

"Only when I’m around English people. And it’s not like I pick up an English accent or anything. I’m not terribly English. You should have seen my great grandfather at Abberley family reunions though."

She chuckled and took a sip of tea.

"There would be a snack table and if you didn’t use the English term for what you wanted to eat, you didn’t get to have it. ‘Great grandpa, can I have a cookie?’ ‘No.’ ‘Why not?’ ‘There are no cookies here.’ ‘But they’re right on the table.’ ‘I see no cookies.’ And great grandma would come in and drag him away from the snack table."

She chuckled.

"Eventually I learned that I needed to ask for a biscuit. Same goes for chips-slash-crisps and gelatin-slash-jelly."

"I don’t see why you Americans ‘ad to go and change everything."

"Yeah, it’s pretty dumb."

"Glad to see you agree~"

Jervis placed his hand onto Miriam’s shoulder sympathetically.

"I’m so sorry."

Miriam just sighed.

"Don’t be so down, Miriam. Like I said, children are nothing but trouble. First, they’re babies and do nothing but cry and shit. Then they learn to talk and hit the no phase. Then they won’t shut up or stop asking you questions. Then they try to be independent even when they’re not ready. Then there’s puberty. I don’t think I ‘ave to explain that one. And once they’re old enough, they blame all their problems on you, no matter what you’ve done for them."

"You seem to have quite the negative outlook on children. Did you have some bad seeds?"

"Hell no! I refuse to be a father."

"Did you have plenty of interaction with children to come to that conclusion?"

"…No…"

"Then I don’t think you’re fit to talk about the subject. Children are great and you shan’t convince me otherwise."

She took another sip of tea.

Jervis continued to sip his tea and sighed.

"I actually enjoy watching children." Jervis said while pouring the tea. "I actually wouldn’t mind having some…" Jervis paused for a moment before sipping his cup.

"Same." Miriam took her cup. "I’ve always wanted children of my own, but I can’t have them." She sighed sadly and took a sip.

"Children are nothing but trouble."

Jervis placed his hand onto Miriam’s shoulder sympathetically.

Jervis came in carrying the tea set on the tray. 

"If you even try to steal my age I’ll put you into my dream machine!" He yelled into the phone.

"Ow!" Mod recoiled from the yell. "Oh, the dream machine. I’m sooooo scaaared!"

"You two are such children! And believe me, I would know."

"Why would you know?"

"Because I’ve been caring for children ever since I was a child myself."

"You have my pity."

"I actually enjoy watching children." Jervis said while pouring the tea. "I actually wouldn’t mind having some…" Jervis paused for a moment before sipping his cup.

Jervis’s grin twitched in irritation from Mod’s twat comment.

"Actually I do. I honestly think that you haven’t stopped flaunting that boney arse of yours even before you managed to get your youthful body."

"Ew… old man ass… "

"Oh please. I stopped flaunting myself and flirting long ago. Then I started again once I got this body back~ And what a body it is~”

"Why don’t I believe that?"
