Elle: Hey...can I ask you something?
Mias: Of course, "my one and only object of true burning desire"... what is it?
Elle: Y-you, know, the first time I saw you, I thought these... (points at Mias's dark circles) were...
Mias: (chuckles) A sort- of make up?
Elle: Well, yes... you were being so show-off, that I thought you had put it on on purpose.
Mias: "Show-off"? Do not you mean I was being "gallant"?
Elle: (grins and rolls her eyes) You're impossible!
Mias "Impossible"? Do not you mean I am "incredible"?
Elle: (raises and eyebrow) Are you evading my question?
Mias: (denies, with his head) No, "keeper of my beating heart"... I am not evading nothing. You just didnīt finish to say it...
Elle: (blushes) That-that was because you interrupted me. (she turns her head to the left).
Mias: (grabs her chin and turns her head softly towards him and looks sternly at her right in to the eye) That might be truth, but it was in order to tease you, and not because I did not want to answer your question... I will never hide anything from you.
Elle: (blushes intensely)
Mias: (smiles soflty) As for these (points at his own eyes) It is a lineage mark. All the male members of my clan* are born with them. They distinguish us from the rest of the wizards.
Elle: So... they are like... birth marks.
Mias: Usually called "evil eyes"...
Elle: Evil?! But you are n...
Mias: (Puts his index finger on Elleīs lips) I am an evil wizard, Elle. That is what I am.
"I've wanted to ask this....oh never mind!"
"No tell me!"
"Well it's going to sound stupid."
"Tell me anyways."
"OK I know you're not an ordinary human but.....are you part raccoon?"
