It’s a pleasure to meet you too, Aria. I love your name, it’s very pretty.
Thank you. Lorelai is prettier. Are you new or just returning to Ivory?
I’m Lorelai, or Rory if you would, of Bulgaria.
Nice to meet you Rory. I’m Aria, Duchess of Sevnic..it’s in Slovenia.
Weddings? Seriously? Aren’t people a little bit young for that? I shouldn’t judge, people can do whatever they want but it’s still strange. I like a lot of things, it will take a lot of time to list all my interests. For example, music course or art class, these are some interesting lessons.
Don’t ask me, I find it crazy too. Especially arranged marriages, but I suppose Kings and Queens have “plans” for their heirs, so..Wonderful! We have an art class and music class. Dancing, journalism, psychology, literature even fencing, I think. So you’ve got a lot to choose from. And don’t worry, you’ll get used to this place soon.
Rawr. Lion sounds even better. It’s a shame you don’t go out much but thanks for the advice. Ivory is a school after all, not a place to play or party. Any interesting subjects?
Yeah..coming here was a major change of environment for me, I guess. Oh no, I’m sure there are plenty of parties and other events. I know that there are a lot of weddings lately. Um..it depends. What kind of things do you like?
It’s alright. Aria, cute. I’ll remember that. So, what’s there to do here?
You think? I don’t like it very much. It means Lion, so I guess you can call me that, if you prefer. Um..I’m not the right person to ask, to be honest. I don’t go out much but you can start by choosing your classes.
I’m Maria, Princess of New Zealand. Yes, you may know my older sisters- they’re already here.
Ah, I’m afraid I don’t. It’s nice to meet you, however. I’m Aria Birsa.
I… well, yeah, I know. It’s stupid, right? To even just… Panicking too much about something so shallow. I’ve just been trying to figure out the relationship thing for a long while now. I’m starting to get te feeling it’s just not something that’s going to happen for me, and… I don’t know, I don’t think I mind it as much anymore. I’m not really the crazy type, I’m okay with the simple things. Spending time with my sisters… I really did miss them. They’re the most important people in my life. Oh, wow, no… I don’t think so. I’ll just be a typical student. Feel free to use my name but I doubt it’ll amount to much.
They’re not shallow but.. I believe that some people just can’t easily have relationships. Matters of the heart are always complicated. I also believe that every person finds at least once in their life a person worth keeping so it’s going to happen to you as well. As I said.. you’re still pretty young. Oh, I just met you and I’m giving you advice already! Don’t mind me, either way my love life in nonexistent. Oh well, if that happens though I will use it, hehe.
They do. I spend a lot of my time in my college’s library since it’s open for twenty four hours. I think the librarian actually waits for me to go there every night. It is pretty competitive and serious, and I hear it does get more and more difficult after the first year. The philosophy part is my favorite, it’s very profound and intriguing.
I can’t even… Well, not that I can’t, but well… I don’t even have any prospect on the relationship way of things so… a baby feels like a really long way off. That does make sense, the responsibility in itself must have been an educational experience. Wow, I didn’t think of it that way… I haven’t really thought of it. I just want to spend time with my sisters and my friends, and have fun.
Well the same goes for me too. It’s not like you’re 40 though, you have time to figure the whole relationships thing. Ah, so not trying crazy things , traveling around the world? I guess spending quality time with your friends and family is better. You must miss them, especially now that you graduated. Oh and looks like you’ll soon be on top of your class so, I’ll use your name as my acquaintance when I ..if I.. ever get to go to Oxford, to make an impression,haha. Hope you don’t mind.
Aria. Nice name. Hello. Oh, yeah, they really are. And full of old books. I don’t know, tbere’s just… something about… the smell of old books, right? I am, I love it. The education is more than I asked for, really. Philosophy, Politics and Economics or PPE, it’s a course that people who want to delve into the government take. Robit babies though. Can they even show affection? It must’ve been hard though. I mean, babies are great, but we’re hardly trained for babies at this age and time. I agree with you there though. It probably had creepy, beady eyes.
Thank you. Exactly my thoughts. I can only imagine they will have so many books you’d need a staircase to get the one you want. The course sounds very interesting and.. tough, to be honest. I love Philosophy though.
I know! I mean.. I don’t plan on becoming a mother for at least another decade. But I understand that Mr Duerr wanted to teach us something. So, you’ve graduated from Ivory and now you’re on your own! Any plans until you get the throne? Or..I don’t know, if not the throne then dealing with royal duties.
