The redhead was happy that Halon obliged to answering all her silly questions. He could have refused on the basis that they were on a mission and had more important things to tend to, but that more important thing would be soap so perhaps the questions were almost more interesting. She wouldn’t assume anything of course. Unfortunately he didn’t know the place, so they’d have a bit of exploring to do. Well, that didn’t have to be unfortunate! This was an opportunity to explore Ponyville! She had never even dreamed of getting to come here on her own, not that she’d really wanted to, but now that it happened it could be great. Cerise eagerly grabbed a map from the side as well, unfolding it to look at the sprawling picture of the Tatian capital.
The young wizard followed a step behind her substitute mentor, eyes wide with wonder as she entered the streets. There were people everywhere. It was different from the way that students crowded the halls of Evercrest before exams, or even the lines for the ferry back in the port town at home. There were so many people, out and about, just living their normal lives right in front of her, completely at random and irrelevant to one another. It was amazing! Her attention strained to stay on Halon as he described his experience with mentorship. He’d been Kalall’s student too, which seemed… scary, for him anyway. He seemed so passive, the idea of him dealing with all the grandeur that was Kalall made her cringe. Then again, she wasn’t in much of a better place. She nodded in acknowledgement as he assured her that the missions to come would be more useful. How nice of him.
“That must have been rough, but hey, you’re here now right?” Her thin lips curled up in a beaming grin, feeling more and more optimistic about this adventure. She had to scuttle up a few steps when he started moving and then turned her head up toward him as he asked about herself.
“Me? I’m not sure what there is to say about me really… I’m just a little kid, I lived with my family up in the mountains, but I’m originally from Copun. That’s why my Alluumnian is a little funny, since we only speak elvish with our grandmother.” Her face flushed a little with embarrassment; Halon certainly didn’t need to know all that. “Uh sorry, bit much. Um, I guess I’m here because of my brother? Or I don’t know, that sounds silly. It’s more because I wanted to do something to help my parents out, do something worthwhile? I’m not too good at regular studies, so I figured I could give it a shot. And well, my brother’s here at Evercrest too, but we never doubted that he could get in. He was born for this place…” More rambling. Her gaze had wandered all over the street so she shook her head and looked back at her mentor. “Do you have any siblings?”
