Felix starts getting a sense of what the elemental like or doesn't. Some people stop to admire and a few come to ask Felix questions.

Permalink

The elemental is very shy in the face of other people, but doesn't retreat inside the mecha.

Permalink

"Do you think you can hold paper without burning it?"

Permalink

"Mm. I- the mecha can."

Permalink

"Do you feel uncomfortable inside it? I wanted to introduce you to books."

Permalink

"It- it's fine." Pause. "Can move it from out here just as well?"

Permalink

"Ah, convenient. Do you know how to read?"

Permalink

The elemental shakes its head slowly.

Permalink

"Do you wanna learn?"

Permalink

"I- yes? Maybe?"

Permalink

"We could get one of the less busy guards to teach you."

Permalink

"I- yes. If you- think that's- best."

Permalink

"Are you too nervous to meet new people?"

Permalink

"I don't- I have never. Seen this many. Before. Not that-" (That weren't trying to hurt them, use them.)

Permalink

"No one here wants to hurt you or use you. We are hoping you will want to join us under your own volition, but allegiance is not necessary."

Permalink

"Oh- I- that's- I've never had- options. Before."

Permalink

"It can be overwhelming. I know."

Permalink

Head tilt, slightly surprised chirrup. "I- how do you know? What to do?"

Permalink

"To you? I would recommend following your feelings. Your curiosity, if you want to know something? If something makes you scared you should make it known, so we can help."

Permalink

Another, quieter chirrup. "I- I'll try?"

Permalink

"As my younger brother says 'trying something is the first step at not sucking at something'. Meaning, don't be worried."

Permalink

"Oh." Beat. Nod. "I- yes. I'll try not to."

Permalink

"An advice. Not a warning."

Permalink

"Yeah, that. So, do you mind if I find a guard to teach you how to read?"

Permalink

The elemental thinks for a moment. "I don't- think so?"
