“I’m coming with you.” Alice spoke out of no where causing me to jump. “What?” Alice repeats herself and it’s a big no no for me. I can’t take care of a half-spirit while doing this! I look at Ava and pointed my eyes towards Alice. Ava knew exactly what was happening and screamed no. “You.. Didn’t have to do that..” I mumbled to myself. Humans are too...extra. (Ouch-) I told Alice the reason as to why I don’t want to include her. She gave me this look like I said something dumb. “I can handle myself, I took care of myself since I was a pup!” Actually maybe she can help. “Ok you’re coming with me.” Her face brightened. Ava looked at me dumbfounded. “Yo Asch, I’mma need to borrow 2 of your knights.” I gesture Asch to come closer to me. He looked hesitant to lend me two of his knights. But after some persuasion, I got him to agree. “Rhys, Leif. You go with them” Asch informs the two boys while pointing to Alice and I. “Why us?!” Leif shouts. Well he doesn’t have a choice. Once Asch says what he wants, it will be followed. Well not everything.
“Its almost evening so y’all could just spend the night here.” Ava tells everyone. Are the rooms here even enough? “Do you have 8 more rooms?” Yuki asks Ava. By the look on her face it seems there aren’t enough rooms. Of course... “Rhys you know what to do.” Asch looked at him. Rhys bowed his head and proceed to do his task. Alice and Ava grew curious and started asking me plenty of questions to irritate me. “For the last time. FUCKING ASK ASCH” I point to my older brother and went to the kitchen to get some water. Once I got back to the room, I saw Asch’s expression. He had flames in his eyes. I almost choked on my water when the same question was being asked over and over again. “I would stop asking questions if I were you.” I tried warning the curious girls. Alice stopped asking. Ava was about to open her mouth to continue but then Alice pulled her to a different room.
“We shouldn’t anger them. So don’t say another word.” Alice tells Ava in a more... serious tone. Ava was a bit afraid of Alice. She saw Alice as a big sister, a very very strict sister. Alice isn’t an outgoing person. She usually just stays inside her room. Laying on her bed, listening to music or reading a book. Always in her own world. They went out of the room seeing all of their ‘visitors’ sitting down peacefully. “Is there a place here to purchase clothes?” Aki asks the young girls while placing her tea on the coffee table. “Yeah... The mall” Ava says. “Well?” Alice and Ava looks at them confused. “What?” Ava asked. “Well aren’t you going to lead us there?” Asch says.
[Time Skip: At the Mall]
“So this is.. the mall you speak of..” Aki says unamused. “Why is this establishment built?”
“For the people!” Ava responds.
“The money invested in this mall could have been invested in other more necessary things..”
“Gosh now you sound like Alice” Ava sighs.
“Let’s find some clothes for you there!”
“Alright.” Aki follows the young girl.
As the girls enter the clothing store, a lot of eyes were on them. Aki shrugged it off but Alice and Ava got concerned. They have not received this much attention. “Why are they staring” Yuki asks. Then Alice noticed. Aki’s horns weren’t hidden. Her eyes widened then pulled Aki to the changing room. “Hide those!” Alice exclaims. “Hide what- OH!- Shit... I didn’t hide my horns.” Aki quickly used a spell to hide her horns, and then left the changing room.
The girls picked several clothes for them and the boys. Alice was just following them around the mall. Once they’ve finished, Ava lead the group to a boba shop for refreshments. “The boba here is the best!” Ava says. “OMG! You guys have Boba here too?!” Yuki exclaims with stars in her eyes. She was practically drooling over the many flavors of Boba to choose from. “I have no clue on what this is, so will Princess Yuki do me a favor and choose one for me?” Aki asks. Yuki nods her head and tells the cashier her order along with the drink for Aki. After they received their drinks, they went outside the shop.
They were peacefully drinking their Bobas but got interrupted.
“You’re here too?”
