"Card games? So then you use it to make money," Deedlit replied. The only card games she'd seen in Lodoss were in regards to gambling. She wasn't sure if she saw that as a fun past time. It was more dangerous than anything.

"No, no, not gambling at all," Ryou corrected her. "Fun competitive games."

"Oh! So you can use it for more than just gambling!"

She laughed, "Your kind really do have such a fascinating lifestyle." Leaning over, she scooped up some of the snow into her hands and packed it together before tossing it to him. "You do this as well, don't you?"

"Hey!" Ryou laughed, grabbing some snow and creating a snow ball. "You do it like this!" he declared, throwing a snowball back at her.

Deedlit lifted her cloak to block the snow and she smiled broadly, "Well, aren't you confident. You'll have to do better than that to really damage. Otherwise, I won't take you seriously." She was teasing him, of course, but it was difficult for Deedlit to see things of that nature in terms of war.

He wasn't sure if she were serious or not. Then again, even if she were, Ryou wasn't exactly strong enough to do any damage anyway. He laughed, attempting to chuck another snowball at her and failing miserably.

If she'd had the ability, Deedlit would have called the spirits of water and wind to create her own ice. Unlimited ammunition, possibly. However, she'd lost her ability to use magic on her arrival. As a result, she watched him, expecting something greater than what she got. This invoked even more laughter and she leaned down, bringing some snow into her hands and she threw one in his direction.

And as the lightweight he was, Ryou found himself flying backwards from the rather small impact, landing back-down in the snow.

Deedlit quickly followed after him. Rather than diving into the ground beside him, however, she simply sat on her knees, ignoring the cold on her bare legs. Eventually, she'd learn not to wear her formal armour.

"Are you okay, Bakura? Maybe I shouldn't play so rough with you."

He sat up and rubbed the back of his head, laughing sheepishly. "I'm fine. I just lost my balance."

"I guess we shouldn't be so rough on the snow anyway," she replied, wiggling her ears up and down. As she brought some snow into the palms of her hands, she smiled, "There are faeries in all living things. It wouldn't be right to abuse them." Except this wasn't Lodoss, which she failed to consider.

Faeries? This sounded like a table-top RPG. "I'm almost certain the snow and ice here is fake."

His look said it. Yes, maybe it did sound a little far fetched, she supposed. Deedlit paused for a moment and then her expression grew a little more serious, "You must be right. Maybe that is why I sense nothing from these things. They're simply artificial. Nothing like that exists in Lodoss."

Ryou blinked, then smiled. "It definitely is fake then."

He must have known she wasn't exactly the same as everyone else. Then again, it was a bit blatantly obvious, wasn't it? "I guess it is." Then she lifted her eyebrows and emptied her hands of the snow she'd picked up, "You're sure you're all right?"

"I'm just fine," Ryou reassured her, taking to his feet.

Following suit, Deedlit brushed herself off and wiggled her ears back and forth. "Tell me, Bakura, how long have you been on this--what is it--ship?" Folding her arms across her chest, she eyed him closely. It was more of an idea how long it would be before she could return to Lodoss.

Ryou thought about it for a moment. Since he'd gotten here, he'd lost track of time. "Well if time runs here the same as on Earth, then approximately a year and a half?" He wasn't too entirely sure, however.

One year and a half. That was a long time.

"I see," she replied, lowering her ears. "You have friends from home here, don't you? It's important to have allies, especially in a place like this. Our allies make us strong and we can handle things we normally wouldn't be able to endure on our own."

"I do have a few friends here," Ryou admitted. They'd been a bit quiet, but he knew they were there somewhere.

She was relieved and her expression showed it. "Oh, good. You don't strike me as the type who'd do very well on his own." Then she paused, "Not that I'm saying you're weak! You just have a very peaceful soul. At least, that's how it feels to me."

Ryou laughed it off, rubbing the back of his moppy hair. "I do like to have the friends I've made in Domino."

And perhaps Deedlit had insulted him. She couldn't tell. She didn't dwell on it, though. "Domino... That's where you're from then? What sort of island is that?"

"Domino's a district in a very large city in Japan," Ryou explained. She must not have been from earth. After all that he'd seen here, this really didn't surprise him too much.

"A city? That is... like a town, or a village, correct? Bigger, perhaps?" Lodoss didn't really refer to anything as a 'city'. It was more like kingdoms, towns, and villages. "And Japan... That is a very odd name for an island." And so was Lodoss. And so was Marmon. She didn't have much room to speak.
