"I don't know. He just wants to be rich, I guess."

Permalink

"Weird."

"We can tell him to stop if he annoys you too much." Shen says indicating his brother.

Permalink

Kasi glances up and nods, "Your brother shouldn't be mean to you."

Permalink

"Yeah, we'll all tell him," Lesi agrees.

It doesn't take Mika long to find his mom - she's still in her office where they left her. 

"Mama! Come listen, Seni and I had some ideas for things to do with magic!"

Permalink

She glances up at him, also spying Dasenifer coming down the hall behind her son. 

"Oh? What kind of ideas?" It's unlikely they have thought of anything the adults haven't, but it's always possible they missed something.

Permalink

"We thought about using the magical lights to build underground farms or farms that are lit during the night and produce more food because of it."

Permalink

"Hm, I'm not sure the second one would work. We had thought of the first one, though. The biggest problem with it is that there are only five of us with the ability to make enchanted objects, and the two of us who are fully trained in it need to spend our time on other things. Istevi is working on duplicating enchanted items, but he's not quite there yet." 

Permalink

Seni thinks. "Maybe you could do a small test? A small garden underground lit by the kids lights so we can see it's works. It's important to run a small scale experiment before implementing anything big."

Permalink

That was Mika's thought, too! "We've gotta make a lot of things to get better, anyway, right?"

Permalink

"Well, I don't see why not," Lia agrees after a moment of thought. "That does sound like a good use for all of the light enchantments the three of you will be making. We'll need to see if your mother thinks it's a good idea before I make any promises, though," she adds to Dasenifer.

Permalink

"I will write a project proposal for her." Seni says seriously.

Permalink

(Adorable) 

"I'll let her know to expect something, then," she agrees. "You did a very good job taking initiative like this," she adds. "Let me know if you think of anything else." 

Permalink

Mika nods enthusiastically, "We will!" He agrees, bouncing in place."I thought of heating houses, too, but I bet it's the same problem, right?"

Permalink

"It is. Along with the fact that heating rings don't heat more than about five feet around them. It's more efficient to use the methods we use right now." 

Permalink

"Maybe Istevi will figure out how to multiply them and even if that's slow to teach..." Seni pauses to think of words. "they would be good for infrastructure disadvantaged situations."

Permalink

"They would. Though that sort of thing will have to wait until we're ready to go public," she adds."It shouldn't be too hard to change the enchantment to have a larger field, for when we do get to that point," she tells Mika. "You could make that one of your projects." 

Permalink

"Mhm! I can make other enchantments then, too," he tells Seni, "Some things will be harder but I'll have warming and cooling and glowing and the notice-me-not enchantment, so if we think of things that are like those I can try." 

Permalink

Seni was not slumped, but he does something like perking up upon hearing that. Which is practically bouncing for when compared to his baseline. "We should write everything down."

Permalink

Mika has got the actual bouncing covered, "Yeah! Let's... go write stuff down and you can make a proposal for auntie Isteri?" He starts bouncing door-wards.

Permalink

"Okay! Thank you, Liarae!" And Seni follows after Mika.

Permalink

"You're welcome," she calls after them, before turning back to her papers. 

Permalink

Mika is going to stop in the reception area to borrow some paper and pencils and then head for the elevator, "Wanna work in the rooftop garden?" He suggests.

Permalink

"I do! By the area where those two greens keep trying to invent a game using blessings?"
