[Anarei] Chatting up an Old Man

Marie Antoinette [Studious]
HAHA. Anarei's not REALLY chatting Kaigen up; this is completely OOC of me, because Anarei is NOT meant for CoM. I just had some sort of aneurysm last Christmas, where I entered her name for the heck of it.

Cute log, really. Lots of Lear references. XD



Serian Center Square
The stones are of different colors, ranging from deep browns to rusty
oranges, and have been placed in squares along the ground. Green grass
grows between the spaces of the square blocks. The rare flower also can be
seen growing wildly along the ground, being a bright yellow or purple in
color. This wide field consists of lush green grass, and different colored
stones. Along the edges of the wide courtyard making up the Serian Square,
tall statues made of the past and former rulers of the city can be seen,
sentient as if they were like guardians.

[Exits: north east south west]
A festive tree covered in multicolored lights stands here.
Delicate white snowflakes fall from the sky, piling onto the ground.
A pile of pristine white snow is here on the ground.
A pristine white marble fountain is here, decorated with small child water-bearers.
A bench made of wood and wrought iron sits here, with intricate carvings in the wood.
A book containing the Serian laws rests here, on a white marble podium.
A Serian Peacekeeper patrols the city, ensuring the safety of its citizens.
A large, grinning snowman stands here, completely motionless
A Serian Peacekeeper gives a look over you, and gives a slight nod.

-look snowman-
You see nothing special about it.
A large, grinning snowman is in excellent condition.

You sit down and rest.

You are now seen as:
Anarei is resting here, lying flat on her back with her head under the great pine tree, staring straight up into the flickering lights as she hums quietly under her breath.

A medium sized man wearing a dark blue cloth hood with strings of beads hanging from the hem has arrived from the north.

Anarei pulls herself out from under the tree, sitting up straight to brush the snow from her hair.

You are now seen as:
Anarei is resting here, sitting up by the giant tree, hugging her legs to her chest with her chin upon her knees.

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Oh, yes? It's not usually so quiet, now, is it?'

Anarei whistles mildly as she glances about, as though contemplating something.

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says in common, snorting and mumbling under his breath, 'Not even any royalty around to bother.....'

Anarei shifts her gaze back towards a human male with eyes like the glistening sea, blinking placidly.

-look human-
There is a human male with eyes like the glistening sea here.

Growing down to his shoulders, his hair is a vibrant white and tucked behind
his ears, save for a few rogue strands that fall across his face. Beneath
this pallid curtain is the face of an ancient man, torn with wrinkles, scars
and various skin discolorations. Standing in contrast to every other facial
feature, a pair of lively deep blue eyes that seem as fathomless as the open
sea gaze about him. Although it may just be a trick of the light, their
likeness to the sea is only magnified by the fact that their hue seems to
waver, much like waves flowing across the iris and crashing onto the beach of
his pupil.

Sitting on his small rounded nose is a pair of small rectangular wire
spectacles that rest just below his line of sight, leaving it questionably
how useful they actually are to him. This idea seems to ring even more true
when it is observed that the left glass has a crack on it running from top to
bottom. Much like his hair, his chin is covered in a fine mat of snow white
hair.
His exact height is somewhat hard to determine at a mere glance due to the
fact that he seems to sag his shoulders and hunches over quite a bit. He has
a rather lean figure and does not seem remarkably muscular. His skin is
weathered and tough and smells ever so faintly of seawater.

A length of bandages is wrapped carelessly around his right arm and covers
the palm of his hand too. Where the bandages have been misarranged or hang
slack a large amount of lightly colored scar tissue can be seen contrasting
against his tanned skin. From the various holes in the wrappings, it can be
surmised that the scar follows a straight path down the length of his arm and
curves around his thumb into his palm. In his left palm, he bears another
scar. This one seems to have been made by two cuts crossing in the center of
his palm roughly equal in length.
a human male with eyes like the glistening sea has tan skin, white hair, and aqua eyes.
A human male with eyes like the glistening sea is just about the same height as you and is obviously heavier than you.

A human male with eyes like the glistening sea has a few scratches.

(Humming) a small, crystal hourglass on a silver chain

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...no wife to bother, even?'

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, grinning, 'You think I'm married?'

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, shrugging, 'You've got a ring. I could be mistaken, of course.'

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, looking down at his hands, 'Well, techically, I have two rings. I guess the diamonds are a bit of a give away though.'

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Well, kind of. It's a pretty ring, though.'

Anarei smiles brightly at a human male with eyes like the glistening sea.

-look self-
There is a dark-haired human maiden with doe-like eyes of hazel here.

The human maiden standing here appears to be no more than twenty years of
age. Yet she is tall, and broad-shouldered for her gender, just as her limbs
are muscled; though not excessively so.

Chocolate-brown locks tumble about her shoulders and upper back in
tightly-wound ringlets; half of this is held at the back of her head in a
small, yet puffy bun with tiny bone-pins. Her bangs cascade over her left
eyebrow, dipping just low enough to frame the curve of her lashes.

Her skin is fair, though not unhealthily so. Upon the bridge of her smallish,
sharp nose, and on either side of her face are tinges of rosy pink. Large,
almond-shaped eyes rest just above the curve of her cheekbones; and these are
hazel, though bordering green. Several minute flecks of khaki dot the irises
of these eyes.

Anarei has fair skin, brown hair, and hazel eyes.
Anarei is just your height and is just about your weight.

Anarei is in excellent condition.

Anarei is using:
a lantern
a felt hat with a feather stuck into it
a tiny silver medallion with the Academy symbol
a short cape
a pair of soft leather sleeves
a small leather wristband
a small leather wristband
a worn glove
a worn glove
a small book
a sharp steel blade
a small wooden shield
a weathered cloak
an adventurer's tunic
a thick leather belt
a set of rough leather leggings
a pair of hard leather boots

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, adjusting his ring and smiling, 'yes, I like it.'

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, grinning, 'I'd imagine you would. People rarely wear what they -don't- like, see.'

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'A sound argument.'

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'So what're you doing -out- here? It doesn't seem like there's much to do, at any rate.'

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well, there's even less to do anywhere else. '

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...true enough. Though I wish I weren't always stuck waiting for people who choose to be late.'

Anarei scowls towards the east, as though annoyed.

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well, are they at least fashionably late?'

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'I wouldn't know. I've been waiting at least a week.'

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Personally, I would have called it a night after an hour or so, though you seem much more devoted than I.'

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, chuckling, 'Well, it's not like I -can- go on without having them catch up first, can I? We're traveling together, you see.'
You say in common, muttering grimly, '...and Lear seems to muck up more often than not when I'm not around.'

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, grinning, 'How did you get seperated? Did you walk for a week without turning around to see if they were following?'

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, wrinkling her nose slightly, 'Lear got injured on the way, so Strahan had to stay with him to make sure he didn't leak guts on the way here.'
You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...and Shanna was -already- here, so I couldn't very well leave her alone, could I?'

Anarei pauses a moment, then chuckles, shaking her head slightly.

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...it's not like you -know- all these people, at any rate. It doesn't matter; they'll get here.'

a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'That's a rather rash assumption. I'm quite well travelled, you know. I may know every single one of them.'

You say to a human male with eyes like the glistening sea in common, arching a slender brow, 'Oh, yes? So what's -my- name, then?'

A human male with eyes like the glistening sea motions towards himself.
a human male with eyes like the glistening sea says in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I am known as Kaigen Ketsu, Sage Ecclesiast of the Sands.'

You say to Kaigen in common, grinning, '...I'm not going to offer you -mine- to help you answer the question either way, Mister Ketsu.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well, I never suggested I would know you.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'True enough. Then again, if you knew my cousin, my best friend, and that mess, I'm assuming you'd -have- to know me, too.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I could have met them when you weren't around.'
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I mean, you haven't seen half of them for a week.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'They haven't gotten here yet; if they had, they'd have found me by now.'

Kaigen says to you in common, chuckling, 'Assuming Lear hasn't caused a bunch of trouble yet. Perhaps you should check the jails, just to be safe.'

You say to Kaigen in common, waving one hand somewhat matter-of-factly, 'Oh, he's good at getting -hurt-, but there's no way he'd get himself thrown into prison. Even -he's- not that big of an idiot.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'How sure are you of that?'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Pretty damn sure.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Then I suppose a trip to the cells really would be a waste of time.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Exactly.'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'So... -do- you know them?'

Anarei grins slightly at Kaigen.

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Oh, heavens no. But wouldn't that have been wierd?'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Very. Especially since you now know how I feel about Lear being a mess; you could very well hold that over my head as blackmail.'

Anarei shrugs slightly, leaning back, appearing completely unconcerned, despite her words.

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I sure he must have some idea of the trouble you cause him if you speak about him so liberally.'

You say to Kaigen in common, mildly, 'Oh, yes. He knows; I make it a point to constantly remind him what a pain he is to me.'

Anarei grins brightly towards Kaigen, though touches of tenderness lingers at the corners of her lips, and within the depths of her eyes.

Kaigen says to you in common, smiling, 'Hardly a fitting piece of blackmail then. Could you perhaps give me something a little more juicy?'

You say to Kaigen in common, sounding distinctly amused, 'Like what?'

Kaigen says to you in common, shrugging, 'Oh, a deep dark secret, an embarrassing truth, something like that would be fine.'

You say to Kaigen in common, mildly, 'You could just -ask-, I suppose. I won't know what to tell you, otherwise.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well, it would hardly be a deep dark secret if I knew to ask you to tell me about it.'

You say to Kaigen in common, grinning, 'Then I'd just not tell you -anything-.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'and I would say "Why didn't you just say that in the first place?"'

You say to Kaigen in common, leaning back, stretching as she laughs, 'Because it's fun to banter.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Can't argue with you there.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'So, how much longer before you start worrying about them?'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Whatever makes you think I -haven't- already started?'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I dunno, I suppose I thought you might be a woman of action.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Oh, yes. That I -am-. I've every intention to go out there to find them; and then -yell- for taking so long.'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Only, Lear might pass out. He said I was, and I quote, "A little girl with healing abilities who's a great kisser, and scary as heck when pissed off".'

Kaigen says to you in common, grinning widely, 'Yes, I'm sure he's intimate with all three of those aspects of you.'

You say to Kaigen in common, shrugging, 'Well, y'know. Men are -always- confused. He kisses me to get me to shut up, but he's -confused- about how he's feeling.'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...were -you- always confused around your wife, too?'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I could tell you stories.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Oh, yes? Please do. I'd like some insight from your gender, see.'

Kaigen sits up, tugging at the fine beard growing from his chin.

Flashes light up the sky and thunder crashes off the buildings.

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well....'
Kaigen peers intently up.
Kaigen grumbles and growls distractedly to himself.
Kaigen stands up.

You say in common, glancing up at the flashes of lightning, '...talk about dramatic effects.'

Kaigen utters the words, 'control weather'.
Kaigen gazes skyward and raises his arms palm upwards towards the sky.
Kaigen closes his eyes and begins to chant.
The thunder rolling off of nearby buildings fades and is quiet.

Kaigen utters the words, 'control weather'.
Kaigen gazes skyward and raises his arms palm upwards towards the sky.
Kaigen closes his eyes and begins to chant.
The drumbeats of rain on rooftops dies down.

Kaigen sits on a wood and wrought iron bench.
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Anything in particular you want to hear about?'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Well...'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'I -do- have questions. You look as if you're well-learnt in this context.'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'What does it -mean-, when someone tells you he's confused and horrified at your being in love with him, and then kisses you to get you to shut up?'

Kaigen strokes his chin thoughtfully.
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'The most I can say is that men tend to fear commitment. They don't enjoy contemplating the consequences of it and become uncomfortable when talking about it.'
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'On the other hand, they tend to enjoy sexual conquest. Thus kissing you achieves both avoiding talking about commitment and furthers his sexual experiences.'
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Win, win.'

Anarei sighs, rubbing at the side of her head as she frowns.

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Not on -my- end, mind you. That was my first kiss.'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'But I don't think Lear's that kind of guy.'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'He's... messed up, but he's sweet, really.'

Kaigen closes his eyes and smiles to himself.
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I won't question your judgement. After all, I haven't met the guy.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...besides, there was this once, I got impatient and yelled at him right after he'd been sliced up something fierce... and we got into a fight.'
You say to Kaigen in common, wincing at the memory, '...and after the fight, he started bleeding like nobody's business. So, really... I shouldn't push him, should I?'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'He would likely enjoy the slack, though it might do nothing to further your ends.'

You say to Kaigen in common, grumbling darkly under her breath, 'I swear, one of these days, I'm gonna...'

Anarei allows her voice to trail off into silence, crossing her arms as she mutters.

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I'm not nearly as experienced in love as you give me credit for though, so I would just follow your heart.'
Kaigen closes his eyes and smiles happily, tilting his head slightly to the side.

Kaigen peers intently up.
Kaigen stands up.
Kaigen utters the words, 'control weather'.
Kaigen gazes skyward and raises his arms palm upwards towards the sky.
Kaigen closes his eyes and begins to chant.
Kaigen peers intently up.

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Oh, yes?'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'I -did- follow my heart. I was following it all the way over a cliff when he asked me whether I felt that way for him.'

Kaigen says in common, sighing, 'Well, I'm tapped out...'

You say to Kaigen in common, grinning, '...oh, what's a bit of rain compared to good company?'

Kaigen says to you in common, grinning, 'You underestimate the fraility of old age. I can stay for now though.'
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'So, what's this about jumping off a cliff when confronted with love?'

You say to Kaigen in common, shrugging, 'My grand-da was at least eighty when we used to spar with wooden swords.'
You say to Kaigen in common, chuckling, 'And that was metaphoric. It's been nothing but disaster since I told him.'

Kaigen says to you in common, grinning, 'As I said, younger men tend to take confessions of love rather badly.'
Kaigen looks down, his eyes glazing over for a moment as he seems to desert reality.

Anarei watches Kaigen for a moment or two, then tilts her head.

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...how was it for -you-?'

Kaigen says to you in common, snapping back, 'Oh, hmm. A little shocking.'

You say to Kaigen in common, chuckling as she leans back once more, '...sounds as if she caught you off guard, as well.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'You have no idea.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Oh, yes? What'd you do afterwards?'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well, I stared at her in utter shock for a moment then she bolted away in embarrassment.'
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Unfortunately, her impromptu confession just happened to be here on a crowded day, so many people decided to make it their business.'
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'I had half of them telling me what to do, half of them yelling at me for making her run away crying and another portion of them saying nothing helpful at all.'

You say to Kaigen in common, wincing slightly, '...ouch. Can't have been easy, huh?'

Kaigen says to you in common, rubbing his chin, 'In the chaos, I didn't see her mix herself back into the crowd.'
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Though, to be fair, she was also a falcon at the time.'

You say to Kaigen in common, grinning, '...she's a druid, then. If *I* could shapeshift, I'd be spying on Lear all the time, too.'

Kaigen says to you in common, shrugging, 'I find being invisible much more useful, but to each his own.'

You say to Kaigen in common, laughing as she waves a hand, '...so she heard everything you said afterwards, eh?'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Anyway, hearing me stuttering to explain myself to the crowd and being indecisive about my feelings for her did nothing to help her insecurity at the moment.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'I'll bet.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well, when she finally revealed herself, she quickly apologized for the trouble she called me and assured me that I would never have to see her again and then ran off for a second time.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...wow, she did a -lot- of back-and-forth running, huh?'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Yes, she was a quick little filly.'

You say to Kaigen in common, grinning, 'So -then- what happened?'

Kaigen says to you in common, smiling, 'You're really getting into this, aren't you?'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'I'm living vicariously through your wife, since my love life isn't about to take a turn for the better any time soon.'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well, here's where the stories split, I'm afraid.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Oh, yes?'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'Well, I knew a few of her favorite hideouts so I was able to catch up to her having finally rid myself of the crowd.'

Anarei nods once, hugging her legs closer to her chest.

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'When she saw me she quickly fell back into trying to excuse herself from my presence thinking herself to be nothing but a bother to me.'

**OOC Message**

You send an OOC message to Kaigen saying 'Rei might not know he's confabulating, but Emmy does. =P'

**OOC Message**

Kaigen says to you in common, flushing lightly and grinning, 'But before she could get past me I just sorta closed my eyes and yelled out "I love you!"'
Kaigen says to you in common, rubbing the back of his neck, '.....even though it wasn't entirely true.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...oh, yes?'
You say to Kaigen in common, tilting her head slightly, her face clouding over, '...and you married her regardless?'

Kaigen says to you in common, wrinkling his brow, 'Well, it's not like we got married the next day or something.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Yes, but... how can you marry someone if you don't -love- them? I wouldn't want Lear to... love me just because he felt indebted to me, or whatnot.'

Anarei winces slightly, rubbing at the tip of her nose.

Kaigen says to you in common, shaking his head, 'It's not like I still don't love her.'

You say to Kaigen in common, brightening a little, '...oh! So, really, you fell for her after a while, huh?'

Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'To be honest, I had only been alone with her on a few occasions before that. Also, she was already in a relationship when I knew her so I never really looked at her like that.'
Kaigen says to you in common, nodding his head, 'And she was quite a few years younger than me.'
Kaigen says to you in common, smiling, 'Not that I'm complaining.'
Kaigen says to you in common, in a calm, baritone voice, 'She was beautiful, though, and intelligent, and she appreciated my sense of humor, which is a rarer trait than I would like it to be.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...I'm sure you're not as big of a mutt as you think you are.'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Lear's like that too, to be honest. He thinks I'm too good for him, and that nothing good would come of my feelings for him.'

Anarei sighs, rubbing at her cheeks with fisted hands.

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'But... see, you got your happy ending. I'm glad for you.'

Anarei grins brightly towards Kaigen.

Kaigen says to you in common, smiling, 'You haven't even seen yours yet though. Who knows, perhaps I'll end up being envious of you.'
Kaigen says in common, wrinkling his brow, 'Assuming I live that long.....'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Besides... death is like the next big adventure in life, isn't it?'

Anarei smiles faintly at Kaigen for a moment, her expression mirroring loss for the briefest of moments, before looking away.

Kaigen says to you in common, smiling, 'With all my dealings with it, you would assume I would know how to answer that.'

You say to Kaigen in common, smiling faintly, '...I guess.'

Anarei glances towards the east once more, then sighs, getting to her feet.

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...it's been a pleasure, Mister Ketsu, but I'd best be after them after all.'
You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, '...I -really- don't want Lear spilling his guts out again. Even if Strahan's there to make sure they don't.'

Kaigen says to you in common, grinning, 'Goodbye, love-stricken maiden.'

You say to Kaigen in common, grinning, 'Oh, yes. You never got my name, did you?'
You motion towards yourself.
You introduce yourself to the room.
You say in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'I am known as Anarei Naveau.'
You say to Kaigen in common, winking, 'I'm a maiden, yes, but I'm -definitely- not as love-stricken as you'd imagine. It just annoys me, is all, the way Lear's going about this.'
You say in common, as though musing, '...maybe I should just hit him and get it over with.'

Kaigen says to you in common, grinning wider, 'Goodbye then, my identified not-so-love-stricken maiden.'

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Much better.'

Anarei brushes her cloak off as she turns eastwards, waving a hand, grinning.

You say to Kaigen in common, in a series of blithe and clear cadences, 'Goodbye, old man Ketsu! Take care!'

With a final, quick wave, Anarei turns and strides off into the night.
