Marianne S Room

06[23:58] * Yanmei had never noticed before, but the hallways in the Dorian Lachapelle were quite long. The one from the Eva hangars to the Bridge, for example, or the path from the Bridge to the Captain's Quarters where Marianne had retired. -
01[00:02] <Yanmei> Fresh from a shower, she made her way through these with her head thrown back and her uniform neat, sweetly nodding to those she passed. At long, long last she found and pressed the buzzer at Marianne's door twice in a row without waiting for a reply the first time.
[00:04] <Minaplo> [("Come in, come in!")]
01[00:05] <Yanmei> So Yanmei did, shutting the door behind her. "Colonel~ Congratulations on an operation well done?"
[00:13] <Minaplo> [Marianne was sitting at her desk, looking utterly exhausted. Her uniform jacket was open, full of creases; her hair was down and she was staring down at her desk, her head resting on one arm. She turned to look as Yanmei entered, smiling weakly. "Thanks. You did pretty good too."]
06[00:14] * Yanmei stepped further into the room and primly found a seat on the edge of Marianne's bed. It was so soft and comfortable… -
01[00:17] <Yanmei> Hastily, she squared her shoulders and focused on her very hard, trying to ignore that. "What are you up to now? I'd expected you to be dozing off?"
[00:20] <Minaplo> ["I'm just…"-
[00:20] <Minaplo> [Marianne paused for a few long moments, then shook her head.-
[00:21] <Minaplo> ["Just thinking about a few things, trying to square some details away. I've been monitoring our power output for the last hour or so to see if there's any irregularities, but we've been alright so far."-
[00:21] <Minaplo> [She turned to look at Yanmei. "You showered yet?"]
01[00:23] <Yanmei> "It was the first thing I did after coming in." She smiled faintly. "Never was a fan of LCL."
[00:23] <Minaplo> ["Fair enough."-
[00:26] <Minaplo> ["The Captain's quarters has a personal jacuzzi. It's a bit luxurious, but I'm so bloody tired that I was thinking of taking a bath in a few minutes, just to soak in the quiet. You're free to join me if you want, if you haven't had your fill of hot water yet."]
06[00:33] * Yanmei hesitated. In a swimsuit…? "I'll pass, but you go and do your thing? I'll have them bring up some light snacks and we can eat and talk at the edge."
[00:40] <Minaplo> ["Suit yourself."-
[00:40] <Minaplo> [Marianne got to her feet, letting out a long, drawn-out yawn, stretching. "I'm surprised you came here at all. I bet you're dead tired."]
01[00:44] <Yanmei> "I can sleep when I'm dead. I have a rebellion to help run!" Yanmei tossed her hair. "Besides, I still have to check up on how everyone's doing after this?"
[00:46] <Minaplo> ["You know what? It sounds like what you need is an XO."]
01[00:47] <Yanmei> "Oh? You mean someone to give all my paperwork to, like Frederic?"
[00:49] <Minaplo> ["Yes, exactly."]
06[00:51] * Yanmei considered this with a sinister smirk. "I could draft one of the pilots into it."
[00:51] <Minaplo> ["Nah, it can't be a pilot. You'd just pick Asuka anyway."]
01[00:52] <Yanmei> "Ha! You know, she'd probably shred it to get back at me for giving her too much work."
[00:54] <Minaplo> ["Well, it'd be your own fault!" Marianne tugged off her uniform jacket, throwing it over the back of the chair. "I do have a few suggestions as to whom you should choose, though."]
01[00:57] <Yanmei> "I'm all ears?" Even though she wasn't going to take a dip, she pulled her own jacket off and draped it on the edge of the bed.
[00:59] <Minaplo> ["VC Thomas might not be a bad idea. Hohenzollern could be -alright- at the job as well, so long as you don't let her drink on the job."-
[01:01] <Minaplo> ["The best pick for the job might be Ginevre Fontaine, though."]
06[01:02] * Yanmei raised her eyebrows high. "You think any of them would accept a position like that? It's quite a step down…"
[01:05] <Minaplo> ["Compared to what, being a prisoner of war, a fugitive and the babysitter of a Spec Ops team?"]
01[01:07] <Yanmei> "…he doesn't like being their babysitter?" Yanmei blinked in surprise.
[01:08] <Minaplo> ["What would you prefer to be? Handler for a Spec Ocs team, or XO to someone trying to take over the world?"-
[01:08] <Minaplo> ["Besides, Fontaine's still your best bet. She has lots of contacts and is owed favours by a lot of people worldwide…"]
06[01:12] * Yanmei hid a slight grimace. "Don't you think she'd be useful on, like, our science team?"
[01:13] <Minaplo> ["You just don't want to work with her, huh?"]
01[01:13] <Yanmei> "I-I didn't say that!" Yanmei tossed her hair. "I can get along with anyone~ You know that."
[01:16] <Minaplo> ["You're going to have to, as well. And in a hurry." Marianne pulled off her sweater. "In the sort of position you're in, you're going to have to deal with all sorts of people you'd rather not have anything to do with. Trust me, it's a good skill."]
01[01:23] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei glanced at the ground, perhaps somewhat sullenly. "I'll reassign all three of them in one way or another? Let me think about it."
[01:30] <Minaplo> ["Who'd you pick personally, if you didn't have to worry about anything like that?"]
01[01:32] <Yanmei> "Hohenzollern! She's really fun, when she's sober."
[01:35] <Minaplo> ["Tch. I mean, if you could pick from -anyone-." Marianne began undoing the buttons on her shirt.]
01[01:39] <Yanmei> "Hmm. Katsuragi might work. Could you imagine how annoyed she'd be, having to take orders directly from me?" Yanmei preened. "But she's so sneaky. She'd find a bunch of subordinates to trickle the work down to right away, so it wouldn't be any fun."
[01:40] <Minaplo> ["Surely you're not basing all of this on who'd find it most annoying…?"]
01[01:46] <Yanmei> "You know I'd do better than that if that was the case." Yanmei sighed. "…you really think Fontaine is the best pick of the three?"
[01:48] <Minaplo> [Marianne pulled off her shirt, tucking it on the chair over the sweater and jacket. "Absolutely. She has the experience, the know-how, and she can advise you, too."]
01[01:50] <Yanmei> "Mmph. Thomas is better suited to military leadership anyway. Direct control of the troops and all that? And if we put Hohenzollern in research or technical, she can drink and do academics to her hearts content…"
[01:51] <Minaplo> ["See? Makes sense, doesn't it? You're already getting the hang of command~" Marianne settled down on the bed next to Yanmei, groaning as she did so. "Ugh, why do these beds have to be so soft?"-
[01:52] <Minaplo> ["… You doing alright, Yanmei?"]
01[01:56] <Yanmei> "…" Yanmei chuckled quietly. "You know me, Colonel. It takes a lot to get to me? A quick nap, and I'll be perfectly fine."
[02:06] <Minaplo> ["I do know you." Said Marianne, nodding slowly. "… And I know what happened today's eating away at you in a lot of ways."-
[02:07] <Minaplo> ["Yanmei, I'm not in uniform right now-" to emphasise the point, Marianne removed her bra, throwing it carelessly over her chair. "So just call me Marianne, like you used to at home…"]
01[02:11] <Yanmei> Yanmei… slowly reached up and loosened her collar, undoing the top button. "Sorry Marianne," she muttered. "-I'm- okay, but I don't know what happened to Isaiah."
03[02:12] * ChefZack is now known as Zack
[02:13] <Minaplo> ["We don't know much either." Said Marianne. "We tried to access EVA-00's camera records, and do you know what?"-
[02:13] <Minaplo> ["The onboard computer erased the files."]
01[02:16] <Yanmei> "What?! It's like the dumb thing went crazy…"
[02:17] <Minaplo> ["It seems to have done so, yes." Said Marianne with a sigh. "We had a look at the battlefield we sent 00, 05 and 08 to- it used to be wetland, and now it's just a barren wasteland. But EVA-05 is completely unharmed, and we can detect what we think is Isaiah inside it…"-
[02:17] <Minaplo> ["But we don't have the spare units to pick him up right now. I'm sorry, Yanmei. But he'll be safe, alright?"]
01[02:17] <Yanmei> "That's… that's dangerous! What if Caine's people get to him first?"
[02:19] <Minaplo> ["They won't." Said Marianne grimly. "The entire area's shrouded in a persistent Anti-AT Field."]
06[02:23] * Yanmei frowned deeply. This was more of a surprise than it was a comfort. "…05's doing that?"
[02:23] <Minaplo> ["No, we don't think so. We think… That it was fallout from whatever happened to 00 and 08 the first time."]
01[02:26] <Yanmei> "But it'll still hurt him! Like, when we were caught up between those two fighting-" She faltered. Had she just admitted something without meaning to?
[02:32] <Minaplo> ["… Yanmei?"]
06[02:34] * Yanmei cleared her throat uncomfortably. "There was just a lot going on, then."
[02:35] <Minaplo> ["…"-
[02:35] <Minaplo> [Marianne shimmied over a little, putting an arm around Yanmei's shoulder.-
[02:37] <Minaplo> ["I'm sorry, Yanmei. The Lance disabled all of our units in Paris-2, and we're still trying to get in contact with the various rogue units from the other bases. But… It'll be alright. Trust me." She smiled a little. "You've had a hell of a fight, and you're tired and sore, and you're worried, but we'll speak to Vercingetorix about it all when he returns, and he can get 05 out. It'll be
[02:37] <Minaplo> alright."-
[02:38] <Minaplo> ["… If it's any consolation, EVA-05 still isn't responding to any of our commands at all, which means it's still berserk. It wouldn't stay in that area if it was dangerous for Isaiah, I bet." A little squeeze. "By tomorrow, the two of you'll be able to share your experiences together from the comfort of a nice hot bath~"]
01[02:43] <Yanmei> "An -innocent- bath." Yanmei leaned against her wearily. "And Vercingetorix doesn't need to know I'm worried? Just that Isaiah's being left there is a problem for all of us."
[02:43] <Minaplo> ["Sweetheart, I think everyone knows you're worried at this point."]
01[02:49] <Yanmei> "They do?" Yanmei hung her head slightly. "Hmph. I guess it's not that unusual, right?"
[02:53] <Minaplo> ["I think you'd have to look -very- hard to find someone who isn't worried about something right now." A gentle smile. "When Rei was worried about Alphonse, everyone knew it- they supported her during that crisis. Everyone'll support you, too. You're a hero right now."]
01[03:03] <Yanmei> "Hero, huh? That's pretty generous for someone who made a pretty speech and then got knocked around a whole lot. How do you think the world's reacting right now?"
[03:10] <Minaplo> ["Well, according to reports, a good deal of Valentine forces were forced to surrender shortly after the declaration of independence. The Chinese garrisons, what few forces were in the USSR… The American forces. Linden told me that public celebrations began in the streets of some US cities when we began reporting on our victories." Marianne cuddled Yanmei a little closer, using both arms
[03:10] <Minaplo> this time. "We took down a whole E-Destroyer Wing in Paris-2 alone, not to mention we managed to take out three Dysangelions… -And- then fended off an Angel attack at the same time. You might feel a bit crap, sweetheart, but right now the world thinks you're getting things done."]
01[19:42] <Yanmei> "Well…" She puffed up just a little at that. "If they're actually, celebrating… I guess we must be in good shape? Let's just make sure no one finds out what happened to 00 today. Or 08. That -was- 08, wasn't it?"
[19:51] <Minaplo> ["I'm afraid so. According to Aline, it all started when EVA-08 put down a Dysangelion- the one we've captured and identified as Agatha- and it absorbed the Dysangelion's S2 Organ."]
06[19:55] * Yanmei winced. "But they've eaten Angels before? And Dysangelions are… kind of like Angel-Eva fusions. Why would it react like that?"
[20:00] <Minaplo> ["Do you remember if they've ever eaten an S2 Organ before? Remember that for most Angels, the S2 Organ is part of the core. When the core goes, the Organ almost certainly goes too."]
06[20:05] * Yanmei thought carefully. "I… don't know. I don't think so? Usually the core explodes or something."
[20:08] <Minaplo> ["That's the S2 Organ's explosion at work. Either the S2 Organ explodes or is just ripped apart."-
[20:08] <Minaplo> ["The scary thing is that EVA-08 seems to have been able to disable the Dysangelion without fully killing it, allowing it to devour the unlimited Organ directly."]
01[20:14] <Yanmei> "Impressive," Yanmei mumbled. "But, yeah, scary? And it didn't exactly throw it back up after being disabled itself. So… could it turn into that thing again…?"
[20:17] <Minaplo> ["I… suppose. Look, Yanmei, we have no idea what really happened to force EVA-08 to act like that. I mean, EVA-01 and 04 have unlimited Organs too, yet…"]
01[20:31] <Yanmei> "Maybe Isaiah would know something?" she murmured wistfully. "Some clue 08 gave him or something. He's been alseep for a while now, but even still…"
[20:39] <Minaplo> ["If anyone has a chance of knowing, it's him or Vercingetorix."]
01[20:42] <Yanmei> "Where did he even go? Wasn't his Angel supposed to be backing up Blanc's group?" Yanmei tossed her hair. "He's totally unreliable, right?"
[20:45] <Minaplo> ["Actually…" An awkard shifting.-
[20:46] <Minaplo> ["Vercingetorix believed there's a spy in our midst. He spread that, intending to bait the Dysangelions to attack Aline's group. He himself actually intended to attack the Synfront again."-
[20:46] <Minaplo> ["… And according to Aline, he might've been right about a spy. The Dysangelions appeared in perfect formation around Aline and seemed to expect her plan."]
01[20:49] <Yanmei> "…" James? Her brow furrowed. "Any leads? Or is that classified?"
[20:51] <Minaplo> ["Nothing as of yet. The inquiries have yet to begin."]
01[20:54] <Yanmei> "It's unfortunate? But it's not too surprising either. We'd better watch what we-" she paused. Then, she slowly began to stand up.
[21:02] <Minaplo> ["… Yanmei?"]
01[21:05] <Yanmei> She approached the door to Marianne's closet and placed her hand on the knob. She braced herself… and then threw it open!
[21:07] <Minaplo> [The closet was empty.-
[21:07] <Minaplo> ["… What are you looking for? Is this really the time to go through my clothes?"]
01[21:10] <Yanmei> "Well, er…" She shut it again hastily. "I was looking for… A-anyway, we should be careful about what we say? Since we never know who might be listening."
[21:13] <Minaplo> ["I don't think the spy will be hiding in my closet." Said Marianne amusedly.-
[21:15] <Minaplo> ["But, I think I know where to start our search: with the prisoners, particularly von Brandt."]
01[21:20] <Yanmei> "That guy…" She brightened slightly as an idea came to her. "We should just assume he's guilty and feed him to Felix the Tiger."
[21:22] <Minaplo> ["What, and lose a valuable prisoner?"]
01[21:25] <Yanmei> "He's too suspicious. He should have escaped when the new pilots did instead of letting himself get caught. No good can come of keeping him around?"
[21:43] <Minaplo> ["I can't see much good out of letting him go free, either."]
01[21:45] <Yanmei> "That's why we execute him via tiger-feeding. It would raise morale. The Neospartans' and Felix's, in particular."
[21:46] <Minaplo> [Marianne snorted, shaking her head. She began to unclasp her uniform skirt. "I'm not sure if a tiger-feeding is a good way to start off your Federation." She said wryly.]
01[21:52] <Yanmei> "Hmph. Bad PR, huh? I -may- reconsider if you explain why you think he's so valuable."
[21:55] <Minaplo> ["He's the HIC Member for the US, right? Now, I'm almost certain that Caine wouldn't have appointed him to the position unless he were a member of SEELE." She kicked the skirt off, and headed for the bathroom, although she kept talking even out of sight. "And SEELE members don't become SEELE members without being clever and resourceful. That means he could do all sorts of damage on the
[21:55] <Minaplo> outside. You mind ordering those snacks now?"]
01[22:05] <Yanmei> "All right. On both points," she said after a little consideration, and shuffled over to do just that. She kept it simple with fruit, cheese, and little chicken finger sandwiches, and then went back to relaxing on Marianne's bed. "He already did do some damage. Biochemical warfare…"
[22:05] <Minaplo> [The sound of rushing water.-
[22:06] <Minaplo> ["I don't think I've heard about that yet…?"]
01[22:09] <Yanmei> "The new pilots took out my squad with these grenades that caused hallucinations. It's a lucky thing they did, too~ They were completely weak?"
[22:10] <Minaplo> ["If they were that weak, it should've taken a little more then grenades~"]
01[22:15] <Yanmei> "…" She decided to go on, hastily. "We also beat up an AC Suit and that pathetic Lilly Norling. It was super easy."
[22:19] <Minaplo> ["Stay on topic, sweetie~"-
[22:20] <Minaplo> ["Anyway, that should answer half of your question. The other half- well, if he's a SEELE member, he might have information we want…"]
01[22:28] <Yanmei> "Maybe," she said grudgingly. "But since Caine's treating them pretty disposably these days, he might not know much."
[22:29] <Minaplo> ["I have a feeling this one will be different. I've heard some… Things about him."]
01[22:32] <Yanmei> "Yeah?"
[22:33] <Minaplo> [There was the sound of splashing water. "Oh, but it's a bit gossipy…~"]
06[22:37] * Yanmei edged closer to the bathroom door. "While -I'm- in charge, no one will be punished for gossiping wildly. Especially if it's about people we don't like."
[22:40] <Minaplo> ["What if it's about you~?"]
01[22:42] <Yanmei> "If they're talking about how awesome I am, then I won't mind?" she preened. "If it's bad, then execution. By tiger."
[22:42] <Minaplo> ["Hmm. I hope we're not trading one tyrant for another…"]
01[22:47] <Yanmei> "I seem to recall -someone- making threats about punishing gossiping people with sensitivity training. It's practically the same thing?"
[22:48] <Minaplo> ["Pff."-
[22:48] <Minaplo> [There was a buzz at the door.]
01[22:50] <Yanmei> "That'll be the food~" Yanmei crawled to her feet and stumbled for the door.
[22:54] <Minaplo> [A Brother hologram was standing there, holding a variety tray full of cheeses- hard cheddars, strange blue vein, a little smoked wheel, soft cheeses like camembert… Some red, fat grapes, vivid oranges, juicy mango slices… Chicken finger sandwiches, some with lettuce and cheese, some with pickles and carrot, all having a different type of sauce…]
06[22:56] * Yanmei thanked it, out of sheer habit out of anything, before taking the tray and wheeling around for the bathroom. "Lunch is ready~"
[22:58] <Minaplo> ["Fantastic."-
[23:00] <Minaplo> [The bathroom was even more luxurious than Yanmei's own, with an impossibly clean and bright white floor, and walls of rich green malachite… Marianne was relaxing in a jacuzzi, her head lying back against a soft pillow built into the wall. The water very high- almost to the top of the sides. Jets caused the water to froth, and some sort of bath perfume had been added to the mix, creating
[23:00] <Minaplo> huge bubbles. Yanmei could smell cherry blossom and lavender in the air…-
[23:02] <Minaplo> [She opened one eye to look at Yanmei, smiled, then closed them. "So… As I was saying, I remember hearing rumours that von Brandt and Mary Caine were… Close."]
01[23:25] <Yanmei> Yanmei found a short stand that would put the food within reaching distance of Marianne. She caaarefully set the tray down on it, and peered around with undisguised jealousy. "That's gross," she said flatly. "And probably untrue. It would make her capable of emotions like -affection- after all."
[23:26] <Minaplo> ["What, you don't want to imagine… Mary Caine and von Brandt, soaking together in a jacuzzi like this~?" Asked Marianne mischievously.]
06[23:27] * Yanmei gave her a flat look. "My imagination can only go so far?"
[23:28] <Minaplo> [Marianne snickered.-
[23:28] <Minaplo> [But then she became… Serious.-
[23:28] <Minaplo> ["I've been thinking about Caine recently. About her as a person."]
06[23:30] * Yanmei frowned, simply taking one of the cheese cubes for herself.
[23:31] <Minaplo> ["Can I ask you something?"]
01[23:32] <Yanmei> "Of course."
[23:33] <Minaplo> ["If it were revealed that Mary Caine had been forced to act the way she does- like, if as a child she was neuroconditioned or something into the person she is today- would you still think of her as a perpetrator, or as a victim?"]
01[23:34] <Yanmei> "I don't know. But I'm pretty sure I would still dislike her?"
[23:41] <Minaplo> ["Oh?"]
01[23:43] <Yanmei> "She's done a lot; you'll have to take my word on it. Even if there are circumstances behind it, I'm a little past feeling sorry for her."
[23:45] <Minaplo> ["Mm, it's not like I'm particularly fond of her, you know. It's just… I dunno."-
[23:46] <Minaplo> ["It seems like… I feel like the things we're dealing with today are the fallout of something done a long time ago, that's all. I wonder if it couldn't have turned out differently."]
01[23:49] <Yanmei> "I couldn't say…" Yanmei twisted a few grapes off into her hand. "I don't know anything about it, to be honest? But if it were Vercingetorix, he would say that it was an unchangable path."
[23:53] <Minaplo> ["Mm, I suppose…"-
[23:53] <Minaplo> ["But do you believe me now? About keeping him?"]
01[23:56] <Yanmei> "Yeah. I guess we can't just get rid of a prisoner for being creepy…"
[23:58] <Minaplo> ["You've met him before? What is he like in person?"]
01[23:59] <Yanmei> "Incredibly polite, always. But he sent Asuka running in fear the first time we met without even really doing anything."
Session Time: Wed Jan 22 00:00:00 2014
[00:01] <Minaplo> ["… How?"]
01[00:02] <Yanmei> "He's one of the people from the NeoSpartan program. Had a hand in some of the less savory parts of their conditioning. It sounded more like torture, the way she put it…"
[00:06] <Minaplo> ["I don't even want to think about that…"-
[00:06] <Minaplo> ["And he just… Surrendered to you all?"]
01[00:08] <Yanmei> "…when I came to after the fight, he was injecting me and the others with some sort of paralysis drug. He -said- he was surrendering, but that's a funny way to do it."
[00:12] <Minaplo> ["A paralysis drug? What the hell?"]
01[00:18] <Yanmei> "He created it himself, and those grenades I mentioned before. There's more, too? He's been studying my records and keeping up to date with recent developments, like that trial. Isaiah's too, and probably Blanc's, de Pteres' and the rest. Now," She crossed her legs, holding up another grape, "do you know what the young Neospartans used to call him while they were under his care?"
[00:26] <Minaplo> ["What?"]
01[00:30] <Yanmei> "Nightmare. Because he used to get in their heads and twist everything around to the point that they couldn't trust their own thoughts." She popped the grape into her mouth and bit into it sourly. "Are you sure you won't reconsider the tiger treatment?"
[00:32] <Minaplo> [Marianne chuckled sadly.-
[00:32] <Minaplo> ["And he surrendered to you? Why didn't he just escape…?"]
01[00:33] <Yanmei> "See! That's what I've been asking."
[00:35] <Minaplo> ["Any ideas?"]
01[00:40] <Yanmei> "He's confident in his ability to sabatoge or operations from a jail cell? -Or- he gathers more information on us and other VIPs, counting on us to keep him alive until he gets free and can report to Caine. Maybe she'll have something or someone to trade for him, if he really is all that precious to her."
[00:42] <Minaplo> ["We're overlooking one critical thing here."]
01[00:43] <Yanmei> "What?"
[00:43] <Minaplo> ["If he wanted to report to Caine, all he needs to do is kill himself."]
01[00:45] <Yanmei> "Yeah…" she said slowly. "Yeah, that's true? But, then, what else could it be?"
[00:45] <Minaplo> ["I don't know. I just don't know…"]
06[00:47] * Yanmei frowned, glancing away for a second. "Will you talk to him?"
[00:49] <Minaplo> ["I will. Eventually. I think you ought to talk to him as well."]
01[00:49] <Yanmei> "Why?"
[00:52] <Minaplo> ["He surrendered to you, after all. There might be a connection there."]
01[00:56] <Yanmei> "…after I rest a little, maybe."
[01:03] <Minaplo> ["Of course, of course~"-
[01:03] <Minaplo> ["… Do you wanna stay here tonight, sweetie?"]
06[01:06] * Yanmei hesitated. It was such a -nice room-. Would she even make it bback to her own if she left? "…if my mom doesn't mind watching Lizzie for a few more hours…"
[01:09] <Minaplo> ["We could bring Lizzie here too, if you like. If you'd rather not, I'm sure your mother would understand."]
01[01:14] <Yanmei> "I'll… let her sleep over with her. They both get along wonderfully, so…"
[01:15] <Minaplo> ["Hmm~ Sounds like you're tempted to just crash right now."]
06[01:16] * Yanmei daintily cleared her throat. "W-well…"
[01:19] <Minaplo> ["Do you want to borrow one of my nightgowns~?"]
01[01:20] <Yanmei> "Is there a spare in the closet?" She stood, stretching her legs
[01:21] <Minaplo> ["I always make sure there's a spare just for you~"]
01[01:25] <Yanmei> "I appreciate that~" she chuckled. Another small stretch, and she left the food behind for now, heading back into the proper bedroom.
[01:26] <Minaplo> ["Hey, Yanmei?"]
01[01:27] <Yanmei> "Hm?" She peeked back around the doorframe.
[01:28] <Minaplo> [Marianne smiled. "I love you, sweetie."]
01[01:32] <Yanmei> It was out-of-the-blue enough to make her pause in surprise for a split second, and then she found her own warm smile. "I love you too."
