Tenma backed away a bit as he stared back into her own eyes. This was quite uncharacteristic of her, since she, Tsukamoto Tenma had always been a winner in staring contests back in their own world…and no one..no one had ever beat her to it, except Karasuma of course….but he was an exception. This boy however…
” Oh yes…um…though I look like this..I’m actually 17 ahahaha!”, she laughed sheepishly, but was at least thankful that the boy was polite enough to say it in a nice way, unlike that demon mercenary that must remain nameless…
” new..? well um, you could say that. Since I just came here about a week ago.”
Ah, so we are the same age. You look quite young for seventeen.
[ He remembered quite some time ago that Maya advised him to compliment girls on how young they always looked, never aging them up. Something about that made girls happy? He wasn`t exactly an expert in that department.
Jun nervously put a hand to his cheek, thoughtful. ]
Only a week ago? That means you`ve just gotten your sign and housing, huh…it can take awhile to get used to.
Especially the whole concept about why we`re even here in the first place.
Um, you do know why we are here, right?
