[ The video shows Tessa in the kitchen of a place that is definitely not the Youth Center where she usually lives, humming and smiling. ]
Dad? [ Not quite shouting, but close enough. ] Would you like anything with the coffee?
[ From offscreen comes a Southern drawl, footsteps approaching while McCoy speaks. ] I can make some pancakes, if you'd like. [ And here he is, giving Tessa a smile before heading over to the cupboard to check and see if he actually has enough ingredients to make pancakes. ]
Pancakes sound very lovely. [ Tessa's own smile widens in response to McCoy's. ] And they would prove a good foundation for a day of riding, would you not agree? [ Those words are followed by a long, hopeful glance sideways to McCoy. ]
[ There's a chuckle, though it's partially muffled by the fact that his head is in the cupboard. He returns a moment later, flour in hand -- that's right, pancakes from scratch. ] Absolutely. That's why I suggested 'em.
[ Tessa's whole face lights up. ] You know, you are my favourite dad. [ He's also her only father, of course, but that doesn't detract from the sentiment. ]
[ McCoy chuckles again, setting the flour down to wrap an arm around her and kiss her forehead. ] Well, that's good to hear. [ He's not always one for outright saying things, but he has faith that she can tell that the sentiment is the same on his end. ]
[ ooc; family day; blue is McCoy and black is Tessa. Replies will come from both of them, most likely. ]
