with a scandal underfoot and the new intense need to cover it up, nimiane was doing her best to become a model child again. it felt like years since she last left camp (it had only been a few days,) and when her father mentioned needing someone to take over weekly tasks, she hurried for the chance. she had already redeemed herself tenfold - surely her fathers felt that even before her gifts, she was redeemed. after all, she was a gullible child that needed to learn. but nimiane needed to feel such for herself, needed to see the encouraging and happy smiles of others to feel secure in herself again.
"hello everyone!" nimiane tried to puff out her chest, standing upon a stone that was shorter than she was. she wondered if her baba would let her stand on his back to look taller, but she didn't ask, figuring this was enough, "i'm giving out weekly tasks! i think i have a lot of good ideas so... ah, please ask away!" an itch of anxiety ruffled the fur on her shoulders but she remained with her smile.
