    Eisen smiled. "I'm sure you'll figure it out."

    Fluss turned at Chloe, looking shy all of a sudden. "Um... Okay?"
    The Faerie seemed very happy, flying upward then down again. She then silently summoned her little brother and her two sisters, Lucien, Félicité and Gisèle. In Félicité's tiny hands was a ball of solid light. Gisèle wrote in the air, "We will show you game we play, Chase and Seek. One throws ball, we race to catch it. One who throws ball controls it, must keep from being caught. Once caught, new game. You go first." She then hands the ball to Fluss.

    "Okay," Fluss said. "Okay, I can do that."

    Though she still looked nervous, she took the ball of light in her hands. Taking a few moments to focus, she raised her hands and threw it.

    "Wait! she then said said. "How do it control the baaall!?"

    Day 5, later that day:

    It has been a few hours since Maxana and Casimir began their personal foreign language course. The holographic images of the casually dressed man and woman hover harmlessly in the center of the bedroom. "Okay students, let us work on something a wee bit more advance," the man says. "Repeat after me: Il est trois heures" The words 'The time is three o'clock' float across the ceiling as Maxana repeats what he said.

    "Il est trois heures.....Il est trois heures....Il est trois heures... okay, I think I got it. The time is three o'clock, Il est trois heures."

    She taps that into her tablet and sighs. "There is so much th remember."

    Casimir sighs heavily. This was going rather slowly, he couldn't be too upset though, Max had wanted to learn all of this with him.
    He'd downloaded a french holobook and was reading ahead when he could... He'd already made it about a halfway through the holobook, and was more than a little pleased at the rate he'd managed to pick it up.

    So when the holographic man says 'repeat after me.' He replies, slightly annoyed, with; "Oui, oui, il est trois heures. Pouvons-nous nous déplacer sur?"

    Looking at Max he smiles. "It is a lot to take in. I think we're doing good though."

    She frowns when he sighs. This must be going terribly slowly for him. But she is happy that he still wants to learn it with her.

    "Oui, nous faisons très bien, l'amour," she says, not at all like a native speaker. She had been using her internal bioelectric conversion to boost her mental speed, so that she could pick this up a little more quickly. It works, she can remember a lot more much more quickly, but it only lasts a minute or so.

    After another hour of basic sayings, the woman speaks up this time. "Okay, mes amis, see if you can follow this one: "Mes amis et moi souvent prendre le train après-midi pour regarder le match de football." Fortunately, the translation, 'My friends and I frequently catch the train to watch the football match' scrolls across the ceiling, as well as the French saying above it.

    After struggling with it a few times, Maxana flaps triumphantly when she finally gets it. "I think...in a few more weeks, we may be able to hold an entire conversation in French."

    Another hour goes by, and he's managed to pretty much finish the holobook. So he began listening to the hololesson a little more avidly. To his annoyance.

    .. Well, he'd at least learned a lot in the time they'd been studying. Still didn't change the fact that he was bored. So very, very bored. But what was this, it seems the lady hologram wanted him to repeat something a little more complex.. Which would have been nice two hours ago, when he was still starting the holobook.

    He mutters something under his breath before responding to the hologram with; "Je vais vous battre avec un ballon de football, madame." When Max gets it he smiles. She was picking it up much faster than he'd thought she would. Which was leagues better than not at all..

    He scoffed playfully, and takes on a French accent. "We don't have weeks, mon amour." Twirling an invisible mustache, he proceeds to tickle her.

    Inbetween giddy giggles, Maxana manages to reach over and pause the lesson before straddling Casimir to give him a taste of his own medicine.

    Cammy's free hand curled into a fist, "We need to find out how it's powered. My first thought is Gulag too, but we can't just assume."

    She nods slowly. "While I am not sure she knows, we should ask Tabia. Barring that, we may find the answer when we investigate that airship."

    "No power, hmm?" She grabs his wrists and pins them above his head. "We will see about that." With a grin full of 'evil' intentions, she begins to nip and kiss playfully at his neck.
