Beside her, giggles ring out. Amelia’s face is lit up in joy, eyes crinkled and toothy grin, an expression far gentler than Gura had expected from the detective.
The word that she was looking for earlier makes itself known: cute.
Kiara’s still looking at her. Slowly, a smirk crosses her lips. “I don’t believe a single word you say,” Kiara says, pointing an accusing finger to Calliope’s chest. “You show me a lot of emotions whenever we’re together! I know you like playing the ‘hard-to-get’ personality, but deep down you’re secretly happy, aren’t you?” Kiara has a shit-eating grin on her face right now and if Calliope was in the right state of mind, she would’ve pushed the Phoenix off the cliff.
Calliope and Kiara side by side, and always will be. A snippet from one of their many conversations over the years.
