Having delivered her missive, Lauren waits anxiously at her desk - so anxiously, in fact, that she fails to notice Kym trying to get her attention.
Kym, however, immediately notices Lauren's fatigue. We predict that Kym's perceptiveness will be a major force in this story, and maybe even encourage some romance/friendship between Kieran and Lauren. Because after all, this story is headed to a fairy cloud unicorn ending, RIGHT? 🦄
Lauren tries to lie her way out, but she is clearly inexperienced. We discuss Lauren's straightforward and blunt character and how her ability has actually crippled her in some respects.
On cue, Hermann receives the missive, and straightaway is more enraged by the sender than intrigued by its contents. We defend his character against the fandom's slander and describe him as lawful good/neutral.
