Sherry crossed her arms. “Obviously not,” she refused to meet Suzy’s eyes, “I know where I’m going.”
Obviously, this was a complete lie and the Frenchwoman had somehow gotten lost going to wherever she’d been headed.
"Hmm, I see." Suzume said, wondering where the blonde was going but she keep it to herself since it wasn’t her business. "Well, I guess this isn’t your first time in Mochinoki city, eh?"
It was a real struggle not to make an expression that gave away the fact that she hadn’t even known the name of the city she was in. Wait, that name sounded familiar.
"Kiyomaro…?" she mused aloud, forgetting that Suzume was present.
"Yeah, I guessed that much. I can’t believe it’s really that similar, huh…" she mused. "I always wish I’d have asked Brago, but I was really hesitant to mention something like that."
"I guess some Mamodo’s just don’t want to answer" she shrugs a bit "Not that I can blame them..it’s hard to tell because humans may not understand or so I’ve heard" she said to her.
It was a little discomfiting to hear, somehow. ”I think…” Sherry replied slowly, “That anyone would have difficulty understanding something that is so inherently different from everything they know. I can also see where they’re coming from; people get scary about things they don’t understand.”
