[Anika and Blanche in... The Moon Well of Mysteries]

Blanche seems skeptical of Anika’s flawless logic, but something shifts as soon as she utters that word. Patriotic. The justification makes her visibly uncomfortable, though she doesn’t voice the feeling. ”Well, lets just hope you’re stealthier than your height lets on,” she attempts to jest, gaze flitting down and up with a motion of the hand.

The volcano question earns a tilt of the head as she struggles to recall information she last used in elementary school. ”Could be. Islands happen because of those things erupting undersea, and I don’t know how else you end up with mountains on em. They run out of magma sometimes too, so it could just be dormant.”
