Red: Well, I’ll let you girls freshen up. I’m sure you need it.
Maren: What’s that supposed to mean?
Red: Er, uh… I didn’t mean…
Maren: No, you’re right. We’ll be back. Come on, Karen.
Red: Well… That went better than expected.
Raine: I don’t know… maren barely looked at me after you explained the situation.
Raine: I don’t think things will ever be the same between us.
Red: Nah! That’s just how Maren is. Emotional one minute, distant the next. Don’t take it personally. She’s always been like that since Tan— er… Since… we were kids.
Raine: Really? I knew you guys grew up together in that village. You’ve known each other a long time. …Were the two of you ever…?
Red: What? Together? Ah-hahaha! Me and Maren! A couple! I can’t even picture that! That would just be… weird!
Red: Plus, I’m pre-e-etty sure we’re cousins.
Red: Probably. It was a small village. But even if we’re not… I could never look at her in that way.
Raine: I see. I’d wondered why you’ve never shown any interest. Especially since… I’ve always thought Maren was pretty attractive.
Red: Attractive? Pfff, I guess. In a sort of Ice Queen kind of way. Eugh.
