[Ariyah – Elysium – Cargo Section – BoL – A]
Ariyah noticed that the other Kindred hadn’t answered her questions, not even her name.
So it was to be that kind of interaction, was it?
Ariyah felt a smile come to her lips, it was one she hadn’t had to use for nearly a year now, ever since she’d left Melbourne and their court of Kindred. It was polite but cool and a little bit of sharpness to it; it was a smile that the Roses of the Melbourne Court were all familiar with.
”I hardly feel it’s fair to satisfy your questions when I don’t even know with whom I’m conversing with?”
Ariyah sat back a little in her seat, elbows on the armrest and fingers steepling in front of her. There was no danger or threat coming from the Rose, just a cool assessment. And the feeling that the next sentence she hears would finalise her judgment on the other Kindred’s character.
