The twins call a car for themselves and all of the newly acquired clothes.

They also live in a mansion, though it's a single building on far less property than Mori and Honey's families have.

Mariko wears out one of the new outfits.

The twin's mom is in her studio, an enormous room full of costumed mannequins. Some of the outfits have faint traces of magic, but most are mundane. 

Their mom is distracted working on some flowy silver thing that seems a mix between "dress" and "bikini", with the right half being the dress and the left haft exposing the wearer all the way up to directly under their bra.

"One moment," she says distracted.

Mariko waits.

"Don't touch anything!" their mom says just as Hikaru is reaching towards one of the dresses.

He huffs and crosses his arms and waits.

Four minutes later she says "Done!" and turns around to look at them properly.

"Hi boys," she says, "Who's this? A friend from school?" she says the world friend slightly skeptically. 

Permalink

"She's-" Hikaru starts to say and then stops.

"Wait," he whispers at Mariko, "how much can we actually tell her?"

Permalink

"You're the ones who are supposed to know that!"

Permalink

"Oh it's totally safe to tell her whatever."

Permalink

"But it's your secret."

The twins are not being as quiet as they could be. Their mom looks amused.

Permalink

"I discovered magic on my own," she tells Hitachiin-san.

Permalink

She raises an eyebrow skeptically.

"Really?"

Permalink

"Really," the twins chorus.

"I thought those were just rumors," she says cheerfully, "you learn something new every day. Well, welcome to the masquerade. It's not as exciting as you'd think."

Permalink

"I'm noticing that."

Permalink

"And I'd guess you want to take advantage of your mother's well known impulsivity to say I taught her?" she asks the twins. 

Permalink

"I wouldn't want to be in trouble or anything."

Permalink

"Some people would definitely go crazy over this."

She inspects Mariko.

"You do have good fashion sense."

Permalink

"No she doesn't."
