oh gosh,,,, virgil with heterochromia ,,,,
I just like, think how he puts on contact lenses so that they’re both the same shade of brown instead of the brown and green that he’s so used to see in the mirror in the mornings. Because if they saw him like that, that would make him a freak, right? More than he already is, no thank you. The contact lenses stay.
But then one day, Patton cries out at night that he needs help, and everyone comes out of their rooms bc it’s a very desperate cry. Roman even has his curlers on and all.
In the end, it was just Virgil’s spider who was chillin in the cookie cabinet when Patton found him.
“That’s it,” he said, affectionately holding his pet up so Patton could come down from the chair. “You see? She was frightened too. Nothing to be afraid of now.”
“Why didn’t you tell us?”
“Because I didn’t know she would be here, obviously,” Virgil argued rolling his eyes.
“No,” Logan shook his head. “Why didn’t you tell us you had heterochromia.”
And that’s where Virgil’s world seemed to break down. He felt as if a bucket of ice-cold water had been emptied on top of him. Virgil braced himself, knowing what Hell was about to come undone. He expected the jokes, the mocking, the insults, but instead…
“Awwwww,” Patton cooed, both hands curling under his chin. “They’re so beautiful!”
“Huh?” he quirked an eyebrow.
“They look like the green of the forests and the brown of the soil,” Roman added marvelled.
“I’d say they look more like puke and poop, if you ask me,” Remus corrected him, but not with less admiration. “Can we get one of those too?”
“It’s rather fascinating,” Logan continued as if Remus hadn’t spoken. “Pretty uncommon, or I’d say, impossible that he should have eyes a different colour form ours.”
“Intriguing, that’s for sure,” Janus confirmed with a solid nod.
No one slept that night. They were too busy asking all sorts of questions to Virgil, exchanging words of admiration, wonder, and curiosity. If he had to be honest, he felt… pretty much alright. Yeah. Veyr cool, nothing to fret over but… Yeah, it was nice.
Needless to say, Virigl never used his contact lenses again.
