AZORES PRISON -- VISITING HOURS

The doors of entry for the prison would swing wide open; a young girl of what seemed to be fourteen stepping inside away from the rain that poured down behind her. Folding her umbrella, the girl would calmly walk inside with her hands inside her pockets and look around the room. After a few seconds or so of this examination of her surroundings she'd look down at a watch secured safely on her wrist -- the numbers on it indicating that she had arrived at the opportune and intended time.

This girl, Azami Aihara, had business here. It wasn't anything serious, mind you... Well, at least not in the sense of it being an urgent or even relevant matter. To be exact she had come to see what she could learn about the recent cases going on in Azores; partially out of spite for a self-proclaimed detective and partially out of genuine curiosity. Recently she had learnt that the prime suspect of the recent cases, Lewis Rhodes, had been detained within this facility and had decided that the best way to ease this lingering desire to gain more insight into the subject matter was to simply question the man herself.

She knew of the proverbs and the warnings that people spewed out of their mouths everyday. "Curiosity killed the cat," people would often say. It was irrational to argue that Azami would actually lose her life in this scenario -- or even that she'd be faced with any negative repercussions from it. This was, after all, a prison. And like any place with that purpose it only fit that they'd have the proper security as well as the safety precautions to prevent any sort of further crime from being committed. Because of this her calm demeanor today was far from a mere facade. With no rational reason to fear her life being in danger she was ready to waltz right in and handle her affairs here...

Well, for the most part.

There was no denying that Azami was a bit nervous but she certainly didn't let it show -- let alone would she let it drive her away from a chance like this. No. She was going to find out what happened or at the very least attempt to look into it this one time. And so she would walk forwards to the woman behind a counter -- the line oddly enough not that busy today. Then again, perhaps she shouldn't have suspected people of wanting to visit the man. They likely didn't know him and didn't have nearly the desire she had to look into such matters.

"Hello. If possible could I please arrange a meeting with a prisoner by the name of Lewis Rhodes, ma'am?"

Shunnosuke always thought it was funny how it rains everytime a considerably noteworhty event happens. Not that he did mind, the teenager liked rainy weather for the same reason he praised winter and cold days; it's just the occasion seemed too coincidental to not notice. Whether it was just a summer rain or a tempest, he wouldn't bother too much beyond his own reflections once he had something far more important to keep in mind: his long-awaited meeting with the highlighted criminal, Lewis.

Honestly, the student expected to have this conversation with the man privately while he was still detained in a hospital room. The ambience would not only make it less awkward than a visit in a prison, but easier for the teenager to inquire about certain things he needed to know beforehand. Things that weren't released to the public via mass media. As if that wasn't enough, he had a certain...interest in the man himself. A rather shady interest, motivated by questionable reasons. Shun wasn't really the sensitive type to feel compassionate towards others, but he wasn't a cold-hearted person either. At least, not entirely to not feel pity, even if for the wrong people and fed by the wrong reasons — someone able to nearly kill a girl as despicable as Rinne Lauderdale deserves his sympathy, although it isn't an amusing occurrence by any means.

As he entered the facility, he folded his beige umbrella and immediately headed to the reception counter. Quite surprising to see the place wasn't any busy or crowded today, in light of the recent events. There was a seemingly young girl there already, but he doubt she'd have anything to do with the main topic of his visit; therefore he didn't mind her presence.

Good afternoon. I'd like to visit a prisoner who goes by the name of Lewis Rhodes. You can tell him I'm a friend of the family. — He said, taking his black, circular pair of sunglasses off and setting his cape's hood down. Upon his lips, the most amicable smile he could.

The woman at the counter looked oddly at the two young kids who wanted to see the obvious suspect still being processed. Quite an oddity if she thought herself. But nonetheless, she would ask for their forms of identification, including names, ages, etc, and she would then proceed to ask for a Qwentyn Harris on her walkie talkie. He’d arrive in little more than a minute or two.




Hair kept clean and cut short, no jewelry, and a fit posture. He certainly was looking different than what most cops remember. He had finally been picked for something important, keeping watch of the captured prisoner. He could not fathom how he got it handled. Maybe it was because of that business with the other young man that he handled so well? Or maybe he was letting it go to his head, as he was chosen along a couple others to monitor the detainee. In any event, he would come out a door to the side of the two students and eye them slightly, a little confused. “These are the ones?” he asked the lady at the desk, who nodded silently, giving the two one last look before looking to her desk to write paperwork. He did recall a man of Shunnosuke’s description coming through as a witness on the scene at the time of Lewis’ capture when Harris read through the report, so he was even more suspicious of him. “So, I take it you guys are here to see him as well? We get plenty of random people asking to talk to him. What are you two here for?” the young police officer asked the two. He wasn’t going to just let them see him without at least explaining themselves. He looked to Shunnosuke in particular. “You’re friends with his family I was told? How do you know him?”

The sound of the officer's footsteps would ring out through the halls upon drawing close enough; Azami anticipating his arrival. He seemed to wish to know why he was here -- something she had forgotten to take into mind. She did need a reason to be here, yes, but she likely wouldn't be let in without such a thing. The important thing to note though was that not all reasons for visiting had to be related to family. There was plenty of room for... improvisation; and the girl's calm demeanor, ability to hide her emotions, and her capability of logical thought would work out perfectly in her favor within this scenario -- or at least that was her hypothesis.

"I'm with the Zela Academy School Press. I've been tasked with writing an editorial on the recent cases which is supposed to give further insight into the case and share the defendant's side of the story. If it's okay with Lewis I'd like to meet with him for such a purpose."

This was, of course, a gigantic lie. But it was a well-delivered lie. There wasn't a hint of nervousness, hesitation, nor fear on her face  or within her tone. Not only that but everything was perfectly plausible. Azami was clearly of age to be at the school, was wearing her school uniform, and delivered her "purpose for being here" perfectly. If her predictions were correct it would be sufficient enough to fool the officer. At the very least she was under the assumption that what mattered the most was the approval of the actual suspect -- not the personal feelings about the visit the man before her had. Then again, that begged the question of whether or not Lewis Rhodes himself would be willing to partake in her questions. That'd become clear soon enough though -- and all Azami could do about that was wait and see.

Strength -- Logical:

Shunnosuke didn't expect he'd have to deal with a second barrier. A police officer, huh? He for sure wasn't picturing anyone that young to occupy such position in the facility, and if Qwentyn was there, for sure he was competent. When he asked they both a question, it was clear the girl was there to meet Lewis, which would make it difficult for the student to inquire about certain topics. Darn, he couldn't help but to think the entities in charge of this messy world are working against his favor and placing obstacles on purpose. First, Ariston's evasive behavior and now this, seriously... First things first and currently the student's goal was to convince Qwentyn he had the best intentions at heart, to whom he wore his most compassionate facial expression.

I don't. Yet. But I came on his brother's behalf, Mr. Ariston Rhodes, who happens to be a good friend of mine and also a tutor at the Academy I attend. You can imagine how exhausted and distressed the man is with the recent rumors surrounding him, can't you? As a class representative, I volunteered to mediate and prevent my teacher from attracting the unnecessary media spotlights which, judging by our little friend here, is exactly what would happen if I haven't come in his place, don't you think? — He gave a cornered look to the girl by his side with a confident, charming smile. "Zela Academy School Press", huh? How come he never heard anything about their involvement and interest in the case? It was either a big lie or he was indeed oblivious to its existence. More important, would they really request someone so young-looking to cover this kind of news? What was she, a freshman or a sophomore, maybe? The student couldn't really blame the girl if she was lying, for he was doing the same (or nearly, saving for a few added details Qwentyn didn't have to know) but...not today. Once he delivered his level-headed response to the police officer, Shunnosuke turned to the girl calmly, although exposing a self-assured smile. — I came here not as a Zela student, however I must aver I seriously doubt our school would be responsible to send someone as young and vulnerable as you seem to be to cover this specific kind of news alone when there are tons of more prepared students to do so in your place, sweetie. Not only this, some of them are already spreading nasty rumors about a teacher who, coincidentally, is related by blood to the very same criminal you're trying to interrogate. This teacher, mind you, is a respectable member of our community, currently struggling with how this misfortune affected his reputation for worse in and out the boundaries of our school. I feel personally offended when Zela students decide to poke their nose where it doesn't belong out of mere curiosity to foment groundless gossip. — Whether his superiority tone would be enough to scare the girl away or convince the office, he couldn't foresee. Whether she was saying the truth or not, he also couldn't tell for sure, apart from his suspicions. Still, he had to get rid of her, for his own benefit, and the best way to do so is showing Qwentyn how reliable and responsible Shunnosuke was while making the man think the girl wasn't honest in her explanation.

Shunnosuke sounded convincing enough. But not exactly winning points by taking out competition. So was there something secretive he had to say to Lewis that the young lady couldn’t hear? The young lady however wasn’t winning with him just yet. Why would a school press have her go through all this and jump hoops to see Lewis? Well, perhaps they were big dirt-hunters, which didn’t sit well with him. “Well regardless, I need your IDs. I am not letting two random strangers see him without giving proof of their identifications. Cause you both seem to be from the school. You guys could easily be working together, or just competitors. I would also think that if someone was related to him they'd come to see him themselves rather than trust a "friend" of his to do it. Why would I let you two in to see them? What are you guys to him beyond people of the school? Would he recognize either of you if he saw you?” If either knew him beyond simply seeing him at one point, then perhaps there was a way to make something of the case. Lewis has not exactly been very forthcoming with details, and has only confessed to the kidnapping of the girls without explaining how he did it, nor demonstrating. Even if they were lying, he could bring them in to speak to him and see what could be made of it. Something needed to come of this case besides just a confession.

What was this kid's game?

Well, perhaps kid was an incorrect term considering she herself was younger than him. None the less however she couldn't help but thinking of him as such -- despite his behavior not exactly being childish; although it certainly did get on her nerves. On the bright side it was a better thing to address him as than the more... technical and fitting terms she thought about him, at the very least. None the less though Azami would put on an obviously fake smile as though she was dealing with a toddler; turning around to Shun and bowing respectful before deciding to counter his points.

"My apologies but I don't think age has anything to do with my chance at this opportunity. Yes, wisdom naturally comes with experience but the keyword is experience. Just because someone is young does not mean they don't have superior or equal qualifications to their upperclassmen. Furthermore, would this not be a good experience for a freshmen? It would allow them to take the opportunity to get involved in the press and learn first-hand on the field if you will. As for the argument of vulnerability I can inform you, without a doubt in my mind, that I am far from vulnerable. You've never met me before and I can assure you that you know NOTHING about me whatsoever; whether it be my psychological status, my qualifications, or my preparations for such a task. If you wish to judge me that is your choice but I hate to inform you that your opinion matters not -- what matters is the perspective of society and, in this scenario, Zela Academy. And as for your blatant implications of me spreading gossip I must say that I am personally appalled that you, a random stranger, would feel that you're in the position to accuse me of something so heinous -- let alone that you would utilize your unfounded conspiracy theories against your fellow students as logical reasoning. Or are you perhaps arguing that keeping our fellow colleagues informed of developments in the legal system and their own town serves no purpose than mere gossip?"

"I'm sure that your concern is out of the kindness of your heart but please save it for another time or simply let me attend to my affairs. If you're truly so upset about my presence here then I simply would encourage you to take it up with my superiors. Arguing with me about it will hardly solve anything."

To be truthful, she had found his words to be a bit intimidating. He seemed to be capable of wording his arguments good at the very least and that was, at least in most circumstances, far more important than any sort of actual logic or excuse someone could provide. Azami wasn't going to simply tuck her tail between her legs just like that because someone insulted her or made a valid point. She wasn't leaving until it was guaranteed that she wasn't going to be capable of meeting with the culprit behind the case: her curiosity simply wouldn't allow it. Despite all this interference however she did have to silently applaud the boy on his capabilities -- though she wouldn't let this moment of praise show anywhere on her face.

The main problem here wasn't the man though. No... Azami rather found the main problem to be convincing the officer. He seemed skeptical of them both and the girl herself didn't have any sort of real connection to Lewis nor did she think she could pull off any sort of lie this time. Perhaps if she was sly enough though she could play her cards right in this scenario. It was a bit risky but if she pulled it off well enough she could transition from the subject of her personal relationship to Lewis casually, potentially eliminate the suspicion of the boy and her being either rivals or teammates, and maybe even guarantee herself some sort of assistance from him as well. While Azami knew not the boy next to her well enough to draw any sort of conclusions -- and from what she did know he didn't seem like the kind of person willing to assist her in any sort of way -- it did seem like there could be a potential benefit to an unspoken alliance if allowed to initiate. There might have been some disadvantages but it seemed like their chances were significantly lowered of getting in unless one of them could justify their reasoning for entering or something of the sort.

Did she expect the boy to aid her in getting in? Not really, to be honest. It wasn't certain if this would really bring any benefit to her and in that sense it was a bit of a gamble. However she couldn't simply avoid the question and it seemed like this was the clearest possible choice. There were several possible favorable outcomes if this thing was a success:

1: Her transition from the subject would cause the officer to drop or forget about it and thereby would get her closer to conducting a visit with Mr. Rhodes.

2: It would remove the suspicion of them working against each other but also that of working with each other. After all, Shun clearly argued against her entering and Azami had been more than willing to attempt to counter. At the same time though it'd seem less likely for them to be rivals as well considering how she had justified his visit, whereas a competitor would not try to aid their opponent.

3: The male would come to her aid out of gratitude with an excuse when and if she was questioned further about her relationship with Lewis Rhodes. (From what she had seen so far of his intentions this seemed unlikely -- though it was still plausible to some extent.)

4: Her attempts to work her way into visiting would fail but out of pity or thanks the kid would aid her in some way; such as slipping a bit of information he had learnt from it to her or providing some other benefit out of compensation.

Alternatively there were the negative outcomes. These all led to the same thing however and were already possible within this scenario. The officer could call her out on her lies, the boy could convince him not to let her in, or her lack of an excuse would result in her failure within the scenario. Considering how there didn't seem to be many options left it was better to simply take the gamble. And so, Azami would hand the officer her identification, deciding to take what seemed to be her last chance to gain some sort of benefit out of this predicament.

"With all due respect officer, I think it's plausible. I'm not aware of the teacher's condition personally but he could be ill, preoccupied with his work, or even simply unwilling to meet with his brother for personal reasons. Unless we know the teacher's circumstances for certain we can't really come to a conclusion."

Hopefully this bit of a gamble would pay-off to some degree.

Working together? Competitors? "How dare you!", Shunnosuke would think, indignated. How could him, for a second, even think they were putting on a scene only to meet a criminal? Really? If they were working together, a direct confrontation is the least thing they'd do. Shunnosuke started thinking perhaps this police officer wasn't as competent as he first thought. As much as he was incredibly astonished by the mere suggestion he's planning that clash, his indignation, however, had a new target. For a tiny body, that young lady sure talks a lot — and surprisingly, she talks in a convincing manner. Most teenagers wouldn't have this fluent ability to counter him, and in such an eloquent, well-spoken manner. Shunnosuke would seem surprised by the girl's comeback. Surprised and annoyed, enough to remain silent for a brief moment. If they weren't rivals when he addressed to her, that changed the moment the unknown student told him his views "matters not". Argh! That tone in her voice he knew very well. It was his tone, his way of speaking to people who underestimated him in one way or another. Shunnosuke didn't see that coming, but he recovered fairly well. Slowly, he would lean forward, in the girl's direction, examining everything about her. Looks, clothes, countenance, hair style. Once he got an enemy, he would make sure to memorize everything about them, and with this girl, it wouldn't be different. His silence wouldn't last long enough, for he let a subtle smirk bloom upon his lips. She clearly didn't know who she was talking to. And apparently, he didn't know either.

...do you really wanna start something here with me, honey? — He hissed out his last warning in a low voice before setting his posture straight, turning back to Qwentyn and wearing an amicable smile. One thing, though, the girl had said right: it was no use arguing with her. She clearly had no intention to let go on her goal, whatever goal it is, and obviously she wouldn't even dare confessing her potentially malefic intents, which leaves to Shunnosuke the only other possible option: aiming for the Officer. — Confirming this girl's words, it wouldn't be a surprise if our teacher eventually falls ill due to the crescent amount of stress he's been facing as of lately. And I should say, Mr. Officer, that's exactly why our Academy would NOT send a School Press to arrange a meeting with Lewis. Not when they know well enough the emotional state of his brother, a honorable member of their faculty, would be negatively affected by a mass intrusion in the matter, let alone the intrusion of mere students in a personal affair. If timid rumors and badmouthing behind his back are already enough to make a level-headed man lose his composure, what do you think an official material spreading with the Principal's endorsement could do to his state, hm? That is, assuming the Principal would even allow such an absurdity, as "an editorial" for everybody to access, in first place. It's like adding fuel to the fire, this is incredibly disrespectful to Mr. Ariston's obvious wish to not having anyone but authorized friends to butt in, hence why I'm skeptical here; the Academy wouldn't send their Press to investigate a relevant subject related to Mr. Ariston without asking for his permission first. Unless, of course... — He turned again to the young girl, this time, placing one of the hands on his waist while giving her a longlasting, careful and very serious look. — ...they didn't send any meddlesome Press, to begin with. Then again... — His face returned his glare to Qwentyn, to whom the boy readily decided to deliver him a light smile and his ID. — ...you can always, like she said, take it up to her superiors since my opinion matters not. And show my ID to Lewis. You inquired if he would recognize me if he saw me, didn't you? Might worth a try since I was there when Lewis was detained. — Once he delivered his message with what he presumed to be very valid points, he would leave it in the Officer's hands. Shunnosuke really didn't want to have a stranger interrupting his mission, but if it comes to worse, ultimately he would join forces with the girl. Tsc, it's been a while since the last time he faced an "equal"...

These guys were fighting more among themselves then trying to get in to see Lewis. It was clear they did not come together, and it surely did not look good on either of their parts, even when they both handed in their IDs to check. Even when Shunnosuke brought up a good point, he was still just arguing and making a scene. He did not spare any moment to try and drive away others, meaning he definitely had something to say that no one else could hear. “But, I can’t just allow school press to talk to a suspected felon. That could be dangerous. I can bring your IDs back and have him look at them, and then I will return to let you know. Until then, stay here,” he said. He would leave the front desk with both of their ideas to go to Lewis’ holding cell, leaving the bickering bunch time to talk before he returned.

It seemed that Shun wasn't going to be willing to cooperate -- such becoming clear from his jump right back onto the offensive. For a moment she could have sworn that he was about to attack her: although it'd be flat-out nonsensical for that to be the case. I mean, he was in the midst of a heavily guarded facility and he seemed to be competent enough to realize that. After all, who would be capable of holding their own in a debate yet would be idiotic enough to attack another within a scenario that surely would result in their detainment or death?

Upon the police officer walking away a sigh would escape from the mouth of the girl. Though it partially came out of relief it had a slight sense of nervousness to it. Honestly, it seemed more likely than not that she wouldn't be entering. But she couldn't determine that fully for herself. She didn't know Lewis Rhodes well-enough in the slightest to determine if he would let her in when she didn't have a personal connection with him. As for the boy? Well, she didn't know about him. He claimed to be visiting for a teacher but that could be a lie for all she knew. And furthermore that didn't mean anything unless the officer actually bothered to explain their purposes for coming here; although she doubted that he wouldn't do so. That didn't even guarantee an entry for him though. For all she knew Lewis could have hated his brother. It was impossible to tell without having known the man and really that just made thinking about it a matter of useless speculation with no rhyme or reason.

Her attention would remain affixed on her watch as she awaited the officer's rearrival with the verdict. Personally, she could care less about conversing with the boy. She wasn't a talkative sort in the first place -- let alone was she going to initiate idle chit-chat with a person trying to impede her progress; regardless of the reasons he had behind it.

To Shunnosuke, the whole clash was pending to his favor, which made him grin his satisfaction. At least, that officer recognized the boy as someone who had a rational point. His scheming side would recognize it as, like Shun says often, "a victory of the intelligence over a lame competition". When the man distanced himself, Shunnosuke crossed his arms and kept his analytical and with zero discretion glance on that girl, still not over her counter-arguments. It's been a while since he felt that urge to completely and utterly...destroy somebody. Even if the girl didn't know about his ulterior motivations for not wanting her to pester in his investigation, she should know better than to confront him once he gave the first warning and right now he was more concerned with obstructing her path in than convincing Qwentyn (even though one thing is strictly connect to the other).If only that darn Officer would listen to him instead of trying to be diplomatic... Should this impasse keeps up, Shun would have no choice but to summon his superior only to take his schoolmate out of the way — his way. Or, in the worst scenario, cooperate with Azami, which he seriously hoped to not happen. For now, all that's left is for Shunnosuke to wait, keeping the young lady under his surveillance until Qwentyn decided to return...

Qwentyn woud return slowly and relinquish the IDs back to their recipents. His face was a look of obvious confusion, but still one of authority. "Sorry Azami, I can't let you see him. Letting someone from the school press is just too dangerous. The last thing we need is more rumors spreading and restarting the panic that was just quelled.  As for you..." he turned to Shunnosuke, and paused, like he was trying to find a right way to get this out. "...He actually wants to see you specifically now that you are here. So you know him beyond seeing him at the time of his detainment is that correct? You are currently a bit suspicious in my book, but for now I will give you the benefit of the doubt. If you are willing come with me." He found it odd that Lewis specifically wanted him to come. There was no way Shunnosuke didn't know more than what he said. He was less interested in detaining the young man and more interested in figuring out what he had to say to him. Well then, perhaps he will find out, assuming Shunnosuke decides to join him.

Azami's heartbeat sped up, if only for a moment, as the final nail was put into the coffin.

It was unfortunate but none the less reasonable. Lewis, like most people, wouldn't just let anyone waltz in to meet up with him. But it didn't matter. Did she feel like shit? Sure. She couldn't let this eat her up though. As a rational individual she had to move on -- knowing her chances were slim of getting in right from the beginning. However there was still one bit of unfinished business present.

After giving a respectful bow to the officer she would turn around to walk out and leave Shun to his business. This wouldn't be before looking in the boy's direction though. He had from the start been trying to intervene with her ambition and though she recognized her disdain as foolish and unfounded considering she didn't know his reasons for attempting to stop her she couldn't help but feel a pulsating urge to punch him in the face growing inside her. However, that would be an idiotic choice considering the setting and perhaps a bit of an overreaction.

Instead, Azami would turn her head to him and give him a glare that said it all. Intimidating others, while not a weakness, was not a skill of hers either. None the less though she did her best to put as much hatred, loathing, and fiery rage within it as possible. On her face was a smile but in her eyes, if she truly had succeeded in this endeavor, would be the fires of hell -- burning right in Shun's direction; something the officer wouldn't notice from the direction of her head.

And with that she'd walk right out of the facility; leaving with nothing gained but also nothing lost. In the end, Aihara decided that was enough for her: even if the curiosity within her would remain unsated by this experience.

Qwentyn gave his verdict. Nothing unexpected. Shun felt confident enough he would be able to persuade the Officer about the whole lying scheme under the "school press" façade, although the male insisted that a school press was really sent to the prison in first place. Does he have to draw that's a remote possibility for Qwentyn to understand? Geez. Looking on the bright side, Shunnosuke had to make an effort to not grin broadly when he said Azami — so that's her name, huh? He'd make sure to memorize it for future reference — was cut out and obviously the teenager glanced to his little competitor immediately. He recognized very well the way Azami looked at him silently. Hate and frustration at its purest form. If only he could lose a dollar for each time he received that kind of glare in his life, by now the teenager would already be as poor as a beggar homeless. Nevertheless, it wasn't anything personal, as most of the times the guy faced a situation where he had to stomp on somebody to achieve his accomplishments, it's just she would obstruct her investigation and he couldn't allow it. "The end justifies the means" and therefore he couldn't care less about the visual threat of a smaller girl.

After Azami left in her quietness, the young boy simply would turn to the Officer, with a serene and clearly annoyed smile. "Suspicious"? After everything he said, the man would dare to call him "suspicious" while Azami wasn't? Shun's desire right now was to just diss that officer for his lame work and call another competent one, preferably in a higher hierarchy, but he couldn't afford losing his chance to meet Lewis, what he's been waiting for. Instead, the student would just take a deep breath and change the tone of that facial expression of his.

...do I look like someone who'd pull a stunt on you, Officer? — Sarcasm aside, for he wasn't really planning to make another scene and belittle an Officer, giving the legal implications that could befall upon his shoulders, the teenager would follow Qwentyn to Lewis's cell.

"I don't know. And that is what bothers me." Apart from that, he remained silent in taking Shunnosuke down a hallway that was quite littered with officers, perhaps meant to use as help in case something were to go wrong. He would open a door which had several holding cells, which were mostly empty, save for one on the end, which held an older man.




When Lewis Rhodes caught sight of the officer and Shunnosuke come over, he turned his head away in absolute shame. Well, it was a bit more than that. His face conveyed that he was ready to tear himself apart, body, mind and all. He sighed a bit,composed himself well enough and would look to the young man. "So it was you. Was kind of hoping it was just a joke, but you showed up. I figured you wanted to see me, so I might as well let you in." As he spoke, Qwentyn would walk a few steps away and rest on the bars of the cell, out of view of Lewis, though still in view of Shunnosuke if he were to simply look to the side. He simply looked ahead and crossed his arms like he was concentrating on something. "So what is it? I didn't exactly see this coming, so you probably wanted something obvious right?"
