Heh. Powers, L thought to himself. The only power I really have is the one to put wanted criminals where they belong. Likely in the electric chair.

His expression softened a little, "No. I don't have any powers. Not of the ones you speak anyway. Again, one's mind can be considered a power, I suppose. Intelligence is a power. Or at least a step to power." Knowledge allowed one to obtain influence. Influence allowed one to take power into his hands. The power to be a god of sorts.

"And when I say sharpening a wit, I mean, working on your senses. Becoming more observant. Those who talk less learn more, because they're using their ears more than their mouths. It's little things like that, that contribute to your own personal assets and make you a better, and sometimes worse, person." He wasn't sure if that was the right thing to say to a youngster, but he wasn't sure if he had any other way of explaining it.

Suboshi scratched the back of his head. He didn't completely understand but he figured it wouldn't hurt to try and sharpen his senses. "Become more observant...talk less...That shouldn't be too hard. I don't talk to many people as it is."

"One's mind is power...My powers were based through using my mind to move things. Does that mean I will be able to sharpen my wit easier?" He wasn't quite grasping the concept but if it meant using his mind then it couldn't be too much different from doing what he was used to doing.

"I'm not saying you talk too much," L corrected himself. "I'm just saying, find a balance. Sometimes you can only learn things by talking. I think you should talk with those you are comfortable with. Don't push yourself farther than necessary. Otherwise, you'll never develop as a person."

He considered Suboshi's other inquiry and he chuckled, "Not quite. That just means you can do something most people can't. Like anything you want to improve about yourself, your mentality has to encourage you. You can't rely on others to do it for you."

Suboshi was lost but he tried to not look completely clueless as he nodded his head. "Got it. Talk with ones I am comfortable with...thats not very many people...and many of the ones I was comfortable with are gone." Suboshi sighed and fell backwards so that he was laying in the snow and looking up at the ceiling. "Sharpening my wit is harder then I thought and I haven't even started yet!" Suboshi wished he had his ryuuseisui back...fighting with that was much easier then this new kind of mental fighting.
