The nicest thing about graduation, Bea thinks, is that in the brief window after breakfast and before the flames burn through, most of the mals are migrating down to the graduation hall. So it's possible to let one's guard down slightly more than usual and not feel too bad about it. And if you go two to a room instead of separately to wait for the cleansing to finish... it's not like curfew's being enforced.
An excellent complement to all her other good traits.
"Let's take all this back to me and El's room?"
"Sounds like a plan."
" - Oh you two haven't seen the new room yet - "
Bounce! And time to show off their very very shiny combined room!
So much room for activities!
Maybe explore those after Shinta leaves?
Haha, sorry, of course, of course.
They've got a celebration feast in the meantime.
Just as much fun!
And a rarer treat.
An important consideration.
Which means Luthien's gonna savor this.
She deserves to.
El's best girl!
Forever and always.
The drawback of a group celebration is Luthien can only give her sister an entirely insufficient kiss...
Save it up for later, sweetheart.
She's bottling up a lot of tension for later.
Snack party's not enough, huh?
She and El can have their own little afterparty.
It's a date.
