    Alice smirked at Ophelia's reaction to her little accident, happy as always when things worked out like this. She got up after Ophelia, and whispered in the other girl's ear, "You're welcome to do that again any time you want."

    With Ophelia telling Athena she'd slept fine, Alice tilted her head in confusion. "That's weird. Why would you be sleepy then? Did you take some kind of medicine this morning maybe? Sometimes if you take the wrong ones those can make you sleepy."

    "Yeah?" Alice said, still confused why Ophelia was so hesitant about the idea. "I mean, it really just depends on if you think you're tired enough that you'd need it. It'd be silly for you to be walking around half asleep all day, right?"

    Alice, meanwhile, was doing anything but study. She'd started wandering toward's one of her other friends' place, when she spotted Darla, Tachi's succubus friend, heading into a public swimming pool. Seeing an opportunity she did not want to pass up, Alice followed her in, and snuck around the locker room where she was changing, taking up a position at one end of a row of lockers from which she could watch the succubus change unnoticed.

    And for once, it seemed like it might just work out. It was early enough that nobody else was around, and she was able to stay pretty quiet and still - until Darla got to the point of removing her bra. At that point, Alice couldn't resist leaning out of her hiding spot a bit more to get a better look, and of course her balance issues took over from there. She tumbled out into the open loudly, and it was all she could do to wave and smile awkwardly at Darla, not sure how the succubus would react.

    Emma was trying to study as well. Unfortunately for her, she wasn't the best at it without Athena helping her out. It didn't help that her sycophantic followers were more than happy to let her slack off and eat snacks instead of reading up on whatever it is she was supposed to be studying for... whatever it is her next test was on. Maybe there was something interesting hidden in one of her books?

    Alice grinned and took Darla's hand. Dang, she needed to hang out with this girl more often! "Do you want a list? I could probably name like ten things without even needing to think," she said flirtatiously, her eyes rarely leaving the succubus' chest.

    "And what are you studying?" The librarian says brightly.

    "Oh you are just adorable~" Darla coos hugging Alice tightly and squeezing her.

    "We have a few books on symbolism if you want the help." The librarian offers.

    ”No, it’s not knowing what it is, it’s the recognition that’s a problem. It isn’t something that I can easily place in logic. I recognize things as what they are, not what the ‘mean.’ I understand the theory, but not the practice.” To demonstrate, she opens her copy of Story of a Murder Implied, to the first chapter. ”So for example, I was recommended to mark all instances of a repeated image in this book. We discussed the idea of caballehosidad, sort of the Spanish equivalent of chivalry, in class, and so I decided that it would first be wise to mark all instances of horses being mentioned. So in the first chapter, Santiago Nahir is described as a man who owns several swords in his home, and even from a young age was a talented rider. But... that’s it. The only other mention of horses at all is that in everyone’s story of how Nahir died, the brothers who killed him did so on horseback, both riding tandem on their family’s plow horse.

    They’re just horses. They don’t mean anything, they’re a good way to get around quickly and their culture just had a history of ‘soldiers fought on horseback.’ They’re just there.”

    "I've never read the book, so perhaps some other form of chivalry importance, swords perhaps?"
