"Just Bakura will do fine," Ryou added. "It's nice to meet you," he added with a slight bow. "And I'm perfectly fine." Ryou had taken quite a beating in the past. Getting bumped into during skating wasn't much of an impact.

"Just Bakura, then," Deedlit decided, although he'd told her to call him that. What this these types of people do, though? She thought about the things she'd seen and finally offered her right hand.

"It's not that I wasn't paying attention," she began, even though she really wasn't. "I've never seen a... skating rink or anything like that. I was curious, and I was going to try a little later. The strange little shoes with the swords on the bottom..." And by that, she meant the skates, and then she pointed to her boots, apparel that seemed terribly primitive compared to the technology aboard the ship.

"You've never skated before?" Ryou blinked. Perhaps elves don't skate? Well to start somewhere, "These are skates," he said, pointing at the boots. "I could teach you how to skate, if you'd like."

Deedlit shook her head. Was that really so hard to believe? "Skates? Those don't exist in Lodoss." Then she paused for a moment and her cheeks turned a little pink. He was offering to help her? Was that really okay? After a moment of thinking, she figured it would probably be okay.

"You wouldn't mind, Bakura?"

"I wouldn't mind at all," Ryou replied, smiling sweetly. "At least you're standing up so that's a start."

"Start with small motions like gliding." Ryou showed her a small glide.

He had a valid point. At least she was standing and not lying face down on the ice, or in the snow.

She watched him for a moment and then outstretched her arms after adjusting her cloak once more. If that got in the way, she'd have to remove it entirely, and show just exactly how odd her apparel was. Then she made a very tiny glide.

...Maybe. "Like this then?"

"Yes, that's exactly it," Ryou said encouragingly. He was quite amazed that she could even stand with all that armor. She very much reminded him of the Elven Guardian. It was rather strange.

Of course, if he asked her about this Elven Guardian business, she would simply look at him, confused. She repeated the gesture with a grand smile. Oh! If Parn could see her now! He would think her even lovelier!

Well--

"Oh, good! It's a beneficial maneuver, right? Something that is good on the field of battle. For evasion." Deedlit didn't know much of life outside of battles. Lodoss never had peace.

"Well I'm not so certain that ice skating would be very useful in battle..." She certainly was an odd one, Ryou reasoned.

"No...?" Deedlit's lips turned down and she regarded Ryou carefully. "So if it's not for battling, what is it used for?"

"Fun," Ryou replied with a friendly smile.

She blinked. Then the elf burst into laughter, "You humans are so very strange! I guess Parn would like something as childish as sliding around upon ice!" Idly she wondered if by doing this, if it was harming the environment. After all, there were faeries in all living objects. It was only ice, however... right?

Ryou blinked. Why was this so odd? Did she not know how to have fun?

When she noticed his reaction, she paused for a moment and then smiled instead. "I don't hold anything against humans. I actually rather like them. It's just that you all seem to have strange customs. That's all, Bakura."

Strange customs? "You do not have fun?" Ryou inquired.
