[Another Unity Member biting the dust, and in the wake all the dirty machinations of the Crystal Chimaeras finally coming to light. If not for Elys's unfortunate passing this might even have been a blessing in disguise; everything was laid out on the table and one way or another it'd be all over soon. Then all that would be left would be the Lady and Loni.]
We really do have to win this, Elma. If we don't, then...
The Balmarians would call it "Apocalypsis", right?
... Yeah. And they already had enough trouble dodging one bullet. And then there's everyone else's own problems we've gotten past. The Lady wants her encore, but the audience isn't up for it.
But still...... Don't tell me. Selena, is that feeling is-
Still there. Like I'm forgetting something obvious... and something in me's trying to hammer that in and make me remember more and more every day.
But Selena, you're... you can't keep fretting about this! With what's ahead of us, we're going to need to be at the top of our strength. Whatever's eating at you, just... just please don't let it get to you! Please, it wouldn't hurt to get some rest. I'd even cook whatever you want in the meantime too!
Anything?Yes, anything! You have my word as a Subot!
Oh, so even that one special
[A pause. A very pregnant pause... and one might even think that Elma's starting to sweat.]... Of... course! I said anything, and I won't back down on that! It might take a while but no matter what I promise I'd-
Good! Then be sure to make extra. I'm sure people'll be curious and want to sample it themselves. And you wouldn't want to disappoint them, would you?But Selena-
You said anything and that you wouldn't back down on that! So you better not be backing down on me Elma! Chop chop, don't keep a lady waiting!
[And cue a playful kick to send him flying into the kitchen.]( And then she totally was all smiles and just waited for her meal )
