❝Inside the mirror do you see someone else in that body?❞

Ezra was very cunning behind his grin. Even Elise knew that, and she was definitely a calculating type. A wild child like Ezra was taking his pursuit of her very slowly for what you would expect from someone like him. Ezra probably figured that if he simply took what he wanted, Elise would push him away. Thus, he had to take this carefully and gradually or else he would fail in his attempt. Elise truly did think that her words were genuine as she complimented Winter, but it seemed that one round of complimets would not be enough to convince her that she was not as ugly as she thought herself to be. Serenity was the one who chose Cinderella and it became clear why she did once Winter criticized the glass slipper. This lavender girl must really think herself to be quite clever, huh?

"Well now you found real friends who will protect you. You won't be an easy target anymore!" Serenity said, acting bold as she reassured Winter. "Because you are even easier than she is." Elise rolled her eyes, still watching the film as it came to a close. "The weakest vassal, I suggest you put more time into training." Serenity giggled, for some reason not finding offense to that. "Yeah, that's true. Winter's probably the strongest of us. Hibi said she never saw someone use ice as proficiently as Winter." Hibi must have complimented her during the duel then. They put in the next film that Winter picked, Mulan, and it begna playing on the holoset. "Shall we turn the volume down a little so we do not wake anyone up?" It was getting later, so Elise made sure to make it a little quieter so they would have less noise coming out.

"I ... hope we can." Serenity seemed less certain however. "Mercy has always... been very loyal to her family. She took the duty very seriously." Serenity closed her eyes as she remembered her friend's words. "The Edmund family was for many generations the sword and shield of the President. It won't be easy." Elise looked over at her, somewhat curious. "What of your family? Your father and sisters?" Did they find them yet, did anyone find any trace of them? "None." Serenity's face crumpled a little. It was clear she was trying not to think of that, trying not to let it get to her. "No one knows where they could be. The house is in ruins, and there's no sign anywhere." Was it possible that they escaped? "What if they evacuated with the others to the north side?" Elise asked, raising an eyebrow.

But Serenity shook her head. "No... my littlest sister, her name is Gabby... she's disabled. Her legs don't work, and around the time of the Apocalypse her wheelchair was broken, so we needed to buy a replacement..." Tears were brimming in her eyes as she spoke so Elise decided to change the topic. Mulan was about a girl who became a soldier. No doubt her efforts for her country reminded Serenity of Mercedes in a lot of ways. "She is a little like us." Elise said softly. "We are girls, but we are fighting with the weight of the world on our shoulders." Siri suddenly giggled, snapped out of her sad reverie. "Geez! El, why do you always talk so... flowery like that?"

She grimaced, wincing at the description. "I was taught to..." By her mother, but she would not mention that part. "But Claude talk normally, like the rest of us!" Serenity blinked, a question coming up. "Wait, so why were you even at the City Center? Wouldn't a rich girl like you be at Rosalind's Academy? And you, Winter, I'm surprised the Chrysanthemum let you mingle with the common folk." Elise frowned, recalling her father's words. "Father wanted Claude and I to learn more about commoners and to become more grounded as nobles. Obviously, a public school was out of the question, so we were sent to the City Center, which was a mixture of wealthy and common." Father wanted them to be able to appreciate people for more than their blood, but Claude was the one who really understood that. It took Elise quite a lot longer to understand what father wanted her to learn.

It was getting late and Elise felt the drowsiness coming to her eyes. Would she be able to make it through the film?
