"Nineteen or twenty now? I’ve lost track since the war raged on."
"Etro above, I’m twenty—"
"Well you are among the eldest of the class."
☂: Shove them into a body of water.
(( This’ll be horrid because I’m stuck mobile and can’t do much thinking on my phone. ))
It didn’t take a split second for his body to collide with the water, waves rippling off the surface after the splash. “Oi! Queenie!” Nine called out after breaking the surface, deep breaths being taken.
"Why’d ya do that?"
Queen carefully tread close to the edge of the water, eyeing the area where Nine stood a moment before. She glanced over to the dragoon before pushing up her glasses. “There was a snake.”
”I can’t say I expected scare tactics from you, Queen." Stifling a chuckle, he shrugged, "It would probably get somewhere, though. She’s convincing when she’s irate enough. Probably best for us that it was her who ended up so picky over not wasting food and not Deuce, though.”
"That’s true. I’ll put it on my to-do list to speak with Sice as soon as possible." Queen’s eyes zeroed in onto the remaining selections. "Soba or rice bowls left. Which do you want out of the two?"
”It sure does seem like it." If kitsune udon is out, maybe I’ll get lucky with soba… “You would think that given where we are, people would be more mindful of how hard it is to get food in some areas… Maybe I’ve just been lectured by Sice too often on it, though.”
"One would think they would be. I suppose the food in the mess hall is a little better than outside the Peristylium." She let out a sigh. "I half-convinced to set Sice on the other classes if this continues."
