"Oh yeah. That's sure to lure them in..." Elyon remarked sarcastically. "You might as well put up a signpost next to the painting that says: 'Trap, by Elias van Dahl and Elyon Brown'." The princess knew the girls long enough to know that they were smart enough to detect a trap when they see one. Why else haven't they taken the bait yet? "They're probably weighing their options. There's a good chance they'll take the risk and check out the museum. I don't want to alert them to their imminent defeat."
"They have names, you know..." Elyon commented as she started to stare blankly at the window. How much longer did she have to wait? It wasn't even a minute ago that she turned down Cedric's idea and she already had second thoughts.
"Those are titles. Not insults. You can't compare them." Elyon replied without looking up. She sighed. There was a certain tension in the air wherever Cedric went lately and the more Elyon noticed it, the harder she found it to talk to him. "I'm hungry." she tried. "Do you think we'll have enough time to properly eat?"
Elyon felt at ease as the now-familiar scent of old paper, parchment and leather bindings filled her nose. The bookstore's dark and old, if slightly creepy atmosphere reminded her of her home, and even Meridian. And to think thatshe ever disliked this place before she met Cedric...

Cedric carefully breathed in. The air was dry and full of dust, just like you'd expect the air in a bookstore to be. Usually he was fine with that, but now Cedric was in a really foul mood - partially because of the headache, partially because of Elyon's protective stance even his barrage of words couldn't get past, partially because of Phobos' strange actions in the past few days.
"Honestly, this world..." Cedric muttered to himself, trying to suppress his anger. Tearing a rebel or two apart with his bare hands would be so great right now...

"I was going to suggest playing that game... how do you call it?" Cedric furrowed his brow. "Oh yeah, twister. We'd get into awkward positions, eventually fall onto one another and laugh, feeling how our bond strengthens. But your idea sounds okay too."
Tridart/Sandpit: And so another year has come to an end. I hope everyone out there had a happy holidays and a happy new year. Godspeed to everyone out there. Bring on the Switch!
