“Good morning, Alphonse.”
“Good morning, Victoria. And this must be Emils.”
The elderly Avaros locks his eyes on the smaller Rabbold, in a hospital private room. He had invited us in during his granddaughters scheduled checkup, in regards to some matters discussed between Alice and Emils.
“To what do we owe the honor of you inviting us today?”
“My granddaughter has told me your ward has some kind of ability to help her.” He addresses Victoria.
“I am not sure what nonsense your ward has put into my girls head, but she was insistent on discussing some matter between us. She refused to provide any details, so I am here to determine just what is going on.”

>Be Emils - Explain matters while keeping abilities low key

This sounds good, in addition to the apology for the pain of the current operation.

I don't think Emils understands pain or should try to apologize about it.

But certainly, time to go with Alphonse.

Let's meet with Alice.

Emils understands pain, at least in the sense they know enough to attempt to emulate it. Apologizing for causing pain seems normal.

The lady is being tended to by the doctors for me to talk to her.

“I would like to meet Alice,” I look at red eyes, “if that is okay.”
“Yeah, it’s fine.” She looks back at Alphonse, “I would like a word with Resida.”
“That’s fine. Alice should be in the lobby by now, if you would like to go ahead.”
“Thank you,” I respond before leaving the room.

I spot Alice waiting in the chairs of the lobby, and she spots me. She’s wearing the pendant which looks like something Slivia had on one of his papers.
“Emils? Why are you here?”
“I was invited by your grandfather, Alphonse.”
She winces, “Ah... I did say that I had to ask grandpa, what did you talk about?”
“I had to talk about what I could do, and give a demonstration.”
“Oh.”

She seems slightly uncomfortable with what to talk about.
> Attempt to start a conversation
>>
No. 952024 ID: 9e04c9

Tell her that you haven't seen her wear that pendant before. Ask if her fiancé made it.

Also tell her the demonstration went well and that you believe that, as soon as Resida's condition is confirmed, that you'll be able to help her. And then she'll be able to cast spells better. Ask if she's changed her mind on this matter.

>Ah... I did say that I had to ask grandpa
Ask her if... she actually talked with her grandpa about you at all. If she says that she didn't, it would mean that Alphonse lied haha

I don't think we should tell her about what happened between us and Silvia.

We don’t know that yet. We haven’t been told if we succeeded or not.

Actually, Alice has always had the pendant with her. You can see it around her neck when we first met her back in Thread 2 of this quest.

When Emils said, "She’s wearing the pendant which looks like something Slivia had on one of his papers." she was referring to Slivia's blueprints from when he first created the pendant and gave it to Alice back when she still had both of her arms.

No. 952076 ID: f133dc

I agree, in Emils usual stoic manner "I fixed someones damage to prove I could do it. Also, I met your fiance. He blames himself. While I was there I made you an arm."

And just watch her get super exasperated at the onrush of implications.

Didn’t we promise Slivia that we wouldn’t tell anyone about what he was working on in his workshop? I’m pretty sure that also includes not telling Alice about anything in Slivia’s workshop.

Ok, if you want to that pedantic, instead of "While I was there I made you an arm", go with "Also, I made you an arm."

Better idea: Let's not mention the arm at all.

We've gotta make sure the arm functions correctly before we can let her use it.

She had always been wearing the pendant.
“There was a lady named Resida who had some injuries I had to heal. She’s mostly okay now. It was not something serious. You do not have to concern yourself with this matter.”
Alice invites me to sit at a nearby couch, “You don’t have to worry about grandpa, he’s just concerned. Ever since my accident, he’s been trying to spend more time with me, but I wish he’d take care of himself more.”
“I also visited Silvia the other day.”
Alice panics a bit, but tries to hide it. “Really?”
“He says he feels guilty.”
“... oh.” Alice says looking down.
“I am not sure how much to tell you considering he wishes to talk to you in person, but I think still thinks about you.”

Alice sighs, sinking into her chair, looking at the ceiling.
“I don’t know what to do. I should go talk to him, but I just feel nervous... scared... my stomach feels terrible... have you ever been in love Emils?”
“No. I have never experienced love.”
“Oh... right... sorry.” Alice looks away, “A-anyway, what about you, what have you been up to?”
“I’ve been exploring the city, learning new things, and applied to be an adventurer. I’ve been put into probation for now, and waiting for the results of the first test.”
“That’s quite the productive week. All I’m allowed to do is just study, train, and recuperate...”
“Bettering oneself does sound as productive.”
“I mean, sure, but it’s boring. With my family’s position, everything I do will have to be in accordance to some dumb nobility thing. It gets kinda stifling after a while, especially when it feels like people look at me like I’m not even a person.”
“Is that a serious issue?”
“I guess not.” Alice sighs, “Sometimes I feel like I should have accepted the invitation to Fuller. At least there I’m not a heiress, or some kind of girl that needs pity.”
“So what’s stopping you? If you’ve decide to accept my offer, it would reduce the time for you to recuperate. You’ve already experienced what it could do to your magic abilities, so that would probably help at a magic school.”
Alice looks at me, “Say, Emils... if I went to Fuller, could you go with me? Someone with your abilities and my recommendation, you would definitely be accepted.”

No. 952787 ID: e860a4

As enticing as it sounds it seems like it would also come with considerable risk. A lot of capable mages in one place, but also a lot of magic equipment, probably capable of seeing through our disguise in moments.

“The offer is tempting and if you are serious, I would like to think on it however as I would like to see what other options reveal themselves to me before I make any significant time investments. Thank you for the offer however”
>>
No. 952789 ID: 015bf2

>>952773
Emils does want to learn more about magic, though, and Fuller must be a high class school if Alice got the offer to join.

"I appreciate the offer. Victor is looking into magic schooling for me also, so I'll ask them about it. If Fuller is high on their list, your recommendation would be a boon.

What can you tell me about it, though?

And is it possible to school as an adventurer and a magician at the same time? I want to learn both practical and theoretical magic, in order to attain full magical girlhood for my inevitable world-saving tour."

Smile, so they think it's a joke.

"Besides, I suspect I'll pick up on some things quickly and I'd rather have something to do with any leftover spare time from homework and classes. And Bea... well, she wants to go adventuring too."

Lean in and whisper conspiratorially.

"(that said, I can probably still help you with homework if you want)"

This is a great idea.

Ask her when you would have to leave if you accepted. You still have some things here to take care of after all.

Also ask what the requirements to get in are, for another friend.
Need to know what to teach, imbue into, or help cheat for Bea.

I'm pretty sure we don't need to tell Alice any of this. There's really no benefit from telling her, so we might as well not say anything.

“As kind as the offer is, I do not know too much about Fuller.”
“Well, everything I know of Fuller is from others, but I heard it’s a city based on magical technology, run by a council of high level mages, and all that matters is how good your magical abilities are. No nonsense about bloodlines or nobility, a place where people can freely interact, and cultures from all around Avaros.”

“It sounds like a nice place.” I guess. “But I have not had any opportunities to have myself tested, so I do not know what level I am compared to you.”
“That’s... I guess that’s possible. We typically test kids at 5 years old here. How do they judge what level you are where you’re from?”
“I don’t know, you would have to ask Victor. I did not have the same past as they do.”
“Oh? Did something happen?” Alice looks at me with interest, “Tell me about where you come from, please. I’d like to know more about other places.”
>>

I guess give her the same story that you gave the other kids in the class. Tell her that you weren't born in any sort of civilization and that you don't really know where you come from.

Deep underground, somewhere I couldn't see, there was a corpse or a fossil. Near it I found my sibling sleeping. Never saw them awake.
I followed the water until I reached a place with grass and lizards I could eat. From there I found my way to this city.

People think I'm lying about where I came from. This is all I know from before getting here and the more believable stories I told were lies to satisfy questions I couldn't answer.

There's not a whole lot to say I suppose.
I don't remember a lot about my past.
Life was all kill or be killed back then.
Mana and the flow of it was life. To seek and consume it survival.
Mana was the first thing I saw. The first thing I understood.
Everything else. All this... Came later.
I've come to find that this makes my understanding of magic... different.
I don't know how it would be judged.

Your only family were your little sister and a nest of giant lizards that took you two in for some reason. But your sister never woke up from her lifelong coma, and you don't know where the lizards are.

Then time blurred until you got caught in some skirmish between knights. You fought back in self defense, and somehow all the knights had fallen by your hand or killed each other. You took what interested you and learned what you could from their magic gear.

Then some weird guy in a frilly dress took you to Victoria.
