She paused for a moment and then nodded slowly, "Oh... my... I don't know if even Lodoss has so many. It seems so small in comparison. And that does not overwhelm you?"

Ryou shook his head. "People are quite well spread out." He found Tokyo rather normal, with its large size and mass number of people.

It had to have been much bigger than her home. Had to have been. After all, if it was smaller, then he must have been distressed. He'd said they were spread out, though, and 'quite well' at that. It was a good indication that it wasn't as terrible as she'd thought.

"Oh," Deedlit sighed with relief, though she couldn't quite understand why it made such a difference to her. "That makes sense. You couldn't have so many people in such a limited amount of space."

"A limited space with that many people would definitely be very bad," Ryou agreed.

"Is it one large city, or a lot of smaller cities? I imagine there are different kingdoms and countries, right?" She lifted an eyebrow at him, considering that countries might be the same thing as provinces.

"Well Tokyo is more of a bunch of small cities turned into one," Ryou attempted to explain, "and Domino is one of those 'smaller cities'. There are lots of countries across the world as well."

"Ohhhh, I see," Deedlit replied with a rather broad grin. Except she sort of didn't. She supposed it was something she'd have to see with her own eyes. That wasn't likely to happen, though, so for now, she'd have to take his word for it. "Tokyo... That sounds like something to eat..."

Ryou thought about it, but he didn't see how Tokyo sounded like a food. Then again, he was more used to it being a city than a food. He shrugged. "I suppose it could."

"I think every name you've given me sounds edible. Japan. Tokyo. Domino. I would suppose, though, that to anyone not from my home would think Lodoss is a rather odd name in itself. The fabulous difference between those from your world and those from mine," she offered as a reponse.

Then she nonchalantly kicked at the snow, admiring the way it decorated her finely-worn boots. "You have snow in Domino then too?"

"In the northern regions, it does," Ryou replied. "Not in Domino, however."

That also made sense, Deedlit supposed to herself. The north was colder. Lodoss worked that way too. A little. She didn't see a lot of snow, but then, she never went places that really had snow.

"You've seen it before, though," she observed. "You are not so clueless as to not know what it is."

How long had it been since Ryou had ever seen snow? It had to be a very long time as he could barely remember it. "It's been quite some time since I've been around it." Or maybe he was just fabricating memories. Either was possible.

"Then it brings about nostalgia," Deedlit observed with a tilt of the head. This Bakura guy sure was interesting. Something else, anyway. After all, everyone on the ship was something else, including that Hatori Miki person she was staying with.

"Somewhat," Ryou replied. He found himself more nostalgic when he looked at his deck or duel disk, remembering all the fun times he had with his friends, than when he saw snow.

Of course, she would know nothing of duels, dueling cards, dueling monsters, or the dueling disks. After all, the only cards she knew of were the ones that were used in gambling. Like the ones Woodchuck used.

Looking around, she lifted a hand and fiddled with her bright blonde hair, "I always get nostalgic with things like this. Maybe it's because I miss home. It must be an elf thing."

"I do miss home somewhat," Ryou agreed, "but not quite because of the snow. I miss home and my friends who are not here." Eh. Sap sap sap.

She nodded slowly in agreement. "Tell me, Bakura. Does the one running this ship... That... Captain-something-rather, does he allow others to return to their homes to see their friends and loved ones?" If he did, it was likely she'd put in a request to return to Lodoss, if for a little bit, at least.

Ryou shook his head. "Maybe at the end of the year, but that's not quite guaranteed."

Well, that was a shame...

"What about missives? Are we permitted to send parcels and other such things?" If that worked out, then she could at least write to Parn. He was probably worried senseless over her disappearance.

Ryou shook his head again. "I don't believe so."

Her lips turned down into that snooty pout she showed so much in Lodoss when Parn wasn't paying attention to her. "...Well... He'll just come for me then." She brightened again and folded her arms over her chest once more. "You know people like that, right? The type of people who would come for you at any distance?"

Ryou thought about it for a moment. Yuugi-kun and the others would come for him, right? He smiled, hiding any sign of worry or doubt. "I do."

And that only furthered her grin, "Good! Everyone should have at least one person like that." Then her expression softened, "Why don't you tell me more about Japan, and Tokyo, and Domino specifically. You are among the first people I've really taken the chance to speak with. And you're a human. So I'm fascinated."
