    He had to steer this conversation away from the more depressing parts of what he had just said.

    "I was born and raised in Sector 8 by my Uncle, before being enrolled in the Arcadia Academy," he started. "When I was younger I devoted a considerable amount of time to my studies and martial arts, and was also in training to become a blacksmith before my.. gifts actually started to manifest themselves," he paused. "But since my trip to Mars I have developed a strong interest in technology, and most of my focus has been on learning that, along with mastering my other... gifts."
    Norda and Joey both nod appreciatively. "What is it like in Sector Eight like? Quiet, I imagine."

    "And also," Joey adds, "what are these gifts of yours?"

    "I could hardly believe that she wanted to be my friend, eizer, but zat happened too." She smiles fondly.

    "Well, Ramilia made the right choice. I'm happy for you two." Sloane said with a slight nod.

    That should be the right thing to say.

    "It was, probably helped that I was raised in a more rural area of the Sector." He replied.

    "And also," Joey adds, "what are these gifts of yours?"
    "Well, when I first started out it was speed and durability. Later it branched out and grew into elemental abilities primarily fire and diamond creation and manipulation.. and later things like electromagnetic manipulation, transmutation, teleportation.. and a few other, stranger abilities." He paused, "I can show you if you'd prefer that to an explanation." He offered.

    She smiles brightly. "Merci beaucoup. I have never known happiness until I met her." Ramilia says nothing but smiles.

    "So, you're a country bumpkin," Joey says, only to receive a futile elbow to his arm from how wife. "What? It's a valid question."

    "Branched out thanks to...Tabia, correct?" Norda asks. "Yes, I would love a demonstration."

    Huh, wonder what she means?

    "Tell us about yourself, Madelyn. Surely you've had a good upbringing?" He asked with a smile.

    "Not if you've ever met a country bumpkin." He smiled. "I wasn't raised on a farm, just raised where it was quiet." The reason for why made sense.. his Uncle had been afraid he was like his parents.

    He'd been right, in a way.

    "Branched out thanks to...Tabia, correct?" Norda asks. "Yes, I would love a demonstration."
    "Yes, she started it. But some of my abilities came from elsewhere." He nodded when she asked for a display and picked up one of the forks.

    "So, this fork is made of silver, right?"

    She smiles. "Oui, I did. I was born in Seven, and had a fairly normal childhood, as in nozing too tragic happened. Um, I discovered my abilities, Stamina and Durability, when I was fifteen, went to Arcadia, and when I graduated, I applied for a job here."

    Since he did not elaborate, Norda decides not to follow up on the other origin of his abilities. She nods. "Yes, pure silver."

    "Oh, and then you met Ramilia. Best moment of your life, right?" Sloane knew it was a rhetorical question, but he figured it was going to be pleasing to them.

    "Depends on how the people in this sector are when it comes to empowered." He replied simply.

    The hand holding the fork glowed brightly, and the fork wasn't silver. "Now it's gold." Another flash and it was quite obviously diamond. "Now it's diamond."

    "Ah. I didn't know you could do gold. That must be recent." Sloane noted.

    He shrugs. "They're okay with me, so far as I know. They should be okay with you."

    Her eyes brighten as they fork changes from silver to gold to diamond. "How did you do that?"
