Lillian watched as Xavier struggled to put things to words. She's never been in that situation, she's always known what to say, and sometimes she speaks without even thinking about it. She has a big mouth, which is where her sass Xavier pointed out earlier came from. But as he spoke, she stayed quiet. She let him talk.
So that was the problem. He had a feminine side, and that wasn't exactly welcomed. Lillian knew that, so she could see the struggle. "I would never shun you for being you." She said quietly. She wanted him to know that someone would be by his side. It was weird, talking to an older student as if she was an equal.
When he was finished, for the first time in forever, she couldn't speak. She had to think her words through. "Xavier. Think of life as walking forward. You always trip at some points, right? But when you trio, you can fall forward or backwards. Backwards might be harder to catch yourself, but that doesn't mean you just turn around. You get up, accept the fall, and keep walking. Besides, you'll always be welcome at my house, you know. " She said.
"It's not your fault everyone is stupid! Girls can't even wear boys clothes, and boys can't wear girls clothes for some Damn reason and it's their fault!" She said angrily. The 1900's were cruel times, not very accepting. Then something dawned on her. "I'm sorry... this is about you.m but I- I got an idea... I- could you design me a suit for Valentine's day? I want to show people I don't care what they say... and if you want.. we could do it together."
