Ariel: Mute Water Witch

The last interview of the day was with a selective mute named Ariel. He had a pen and paper ready for their upcoming conversation. This would be a little difficult, but he knew that they could pull it off. When she came in she offered a smile and Tadashi shook her hand. "My name is Tadashi Hamada."

Ariel quickly scribbled down her name then gave him a pretty smile. She seemed like a very nice girl. Tadashi asked, "How did you meet my brother?" He tilted his head as he asked, trying to make himself seem friendlier.

Ariel wrote down on the paper, I met your brother while I was at the water. I was creating water horses for some children.

Tadashi read the phrase then nodded and smiled, "That was a nice thing for you to do." Ariel smiled and nodded enthusiastically. Tadashi wasn't sure how she would fit in at Big Hero Six.

"So, I'm assuming your powers are with water?" Tadashi asked curiously. When she nodded enthusiastically again Tadashi asked, "Why would you like to see Big Hero Six rebooted? Or why would you like to join?"

Ariel looked thoughtful then wrote down on the piece of paper, I would like to see it rebooted because I saw what criminals did to my mother. She was murdered. I don't want that to happen to anyone else. I choose not to talk because whenever I do I hear my mothers voice. I don't want anyone else to go through what I did.

Tadashi nodded and then tilted his head, "I'm sorry for your loss." He watched as she ducked her head, letting her red hair fall over her face, "Ariel?"

The girl looked back up at Tadashi and smiled at him. Tadashi returned the smile then asked, "Do you have any siblings?"

Ariel nodded vigorously then wrote down, 12 sisters. She laughed at the expression on Tadashi's face. Ariel patted his hand and giggled before writing down on the paper, Mom was very fertile.

Tadashi held back a smile again and laced his fingers together, yet again, and set them on the table, "Can you breath underwater with your powers?"

Ariel looked surprised that he would ask and wrote, Yes. I can breath underwater and swim like a fish.

Tadashi nodded after reading the note then stood up to shake her hand, "Thank you for your time. It was a pleasure to meet you."

Ariel bowed her head and shook his hand before walking out the door. Tadashi stretched and yawned, happy that the interviews were done for the day. That was exhausting. Especially the weird children. He just hoped he didn't get nightmares from Alice. Hiro was leaning in the doorway when Tadashi looked up again.

"Having fun?"

"Did you do the children first on purpose?"

"Why?"

"That was the weirdest thing I have ever encountered."
