The entire house is a little awkward because of Aren, the former prince who was the leader of the hunters once. Only Gabriel talks to Aren normally. Mirai and Pebby avoid him. Raye ignores his existence. Kresi is always silent around him. Aren is used to seeing her non-verbal gestures rather than hearing her voice.
"You can't come with us, Aren," Kresi speaks to him for the first time. Her voice is eerily cold, filled with a distant accent of the lower realm. He flinches -- an unwanted reaction from the night she talked to him through the connection that he had with his mother's mind. He hates this reaction, but his body doesn't listen to him.
This's an experimental test for reading assistance in case.
