Hoot-man? All look alike? He can't tell a human from a dwarf?
Feeling more than a little insulted, Kaname stifled a huff, and did her best to talk evenly. Of course, she failed. "Oh, well, we meant to just spend the night stargazing, but a friend of ours staggered into some old catacombs and, rather than listen to a sermon in a musty old chapel, we agreed to go look for her. Along the way, we've found statues, wall carvings, histories, plants that cause rashes, rivers, chasams, and pretty much everything but what we came looking for. Quite frankly, I find it difficult that Balance can allow this much furstration to befall one person, so please, in the name of Kalyca, would you just tell us if you've seen another human being down here in the last few hours, so we can be on our way..." She had stared in a manner that was something like an impassioned rant, but she ended more in a manner of plaintive suplication.
