Kunait eats a few bites, and then pulls his face up, with a couple of bits of rice sticking onto the corners of his mouth. "Thank you, Shining Blossom." Fhio looks over and opens her mouth "I want to be just like you when I grow up, Shining Blossom! I want to be really kind and pretty, and be nice to everyone!" She smiles, and tilts her head to one side. There is a one second pause.
Bijou giggles a bit in a condescending manner "Now now, Fhio, it's nice to compliment our guests, but I think that's going a bit overboard...". Fhio then points over at her eldest brother "But look, it's true! She's so pretty that she's got my brother's eyes trained right on her! Yuru never
gets mushy!". Yuru laughs, and for some strange reason he seems to have forgotten completely that he should be upset. "Aw, I might not be a soft person, but I do care...". Fhio hugs her brother, and Yuru gently ruffles his sister's hair in affection, some of the strands fall loose from the pony tail, making her suddenly look very unkempt. Nobody at the table can keep from curving up the corners of their mouth at the sight of this sibling love.
Kunait looks over at Saod and asks "Will you be doing one of your musical performances tonight, Saod?" Saod puts his hands behind his head, and pushes back his bowl of food. "Nah, sorry. 'Sides, I wouldn't call my jam sessions performances, per se". Bijou suddenly looks very stern and intently towards Saod, but says nothing. Kunait looks down at his food again "Drat... You're good at it." Saod smiles "Thanks, but I still need practice."
OOC: Holy cow, so when we make sure we succeed at tasks, we're burning money? And . . . I guess the Resources 5 background is all sorts of powerful, if it can directly enable you to simply go to an ATM and withdraw more Essence when you need it.
OOC: You are burning the equivalent of money, however, Arbiter's Essence is Alchemical Essence, and does not translate well into other forms. So having 5 Resource Dots does not mean you can simply hook yourself to an ATM and become invincible. If you had an Artifact 5 machine for converting essence, you could potentially do that, but that would just be twinking, and that's no fun, right?
An armed Vebael Corporation man just burst into your room, declaring that your patient is to be brought to a meeting. What do you say/do?
