052 Blue

There wasn’t a blue that looked right. They were all quite dark; Zoe wanted a light blue for her next piece.

“Something wrong?” Maddie asked, sitting beside her.

“I can’t find the right blue.”

“How can you even tell?” Maddie picked up several of the sheets, leafing through them.

Zoe shrugged, picking one of the sheets. “Don’t know. Can’t you?”

“I suppose.” She put the sheets back down, watching Zoe consider it. “Who’s this one for?”

“You,” Zoe said absently.

“Oh? Why blue, then?”

“You’d rather a different colour?”

“I like yellow.”

“Yellow’s not for you. Blue is trust and confidence and tranquillity and understanding.”

Maddie blinked. “All that?”

Zoe laughed, beginning the folds. “All that.”

“So who’s yellow?”

“One colour at a time. You’ll confuse me.” She made another fold. “What do you think?”

“It doesn’t look like anything yet.” Zoe turned it around, and she blinked. “It’s a wolf?”

“It’s not very good,” Zoe said disapprovingly. “It’s not…fierce enough.”

Maddie blinked at the implication. “Am I very fierce, Zoe?”

She smiled faintly, eyes still on the wolf. “Like a mother tigress.”

“Or a wolf,” Maddie said, grasping it. “I see.”

“I could do another,” Zoe offered.

“No. I like this one.” Maddie carefully took it from her, studying it for a moment before going to place it with the others.

“Like a mother tigress?” Xander murmured into his blanket.

“Sleeping people don’t talk, Xander,” Zoe said primly, gathering her paper together and going to help Clare with the dinner.
