"Yes," Mana said, grabbing the roster. Her eyes scanned the contents, though they stopped shortly after she started.
"Tyler," she said, without looking up from the paper. "Fun fact, I was born and raised in Twilight Town. I was never into politics, so I never really knew who the mayor was, which is why I didn't know you. I left when I turned eighteen this year, because I wanted to explore the worlds. My parents, though, stayed. I mean, it was their home."
She then looked up and put the roster in front of Tyler's face, pointing to two names. "It seems that they should have," she said solemnly, the names she pointing at belonged to her two now deceased parents. But Mana didn't burst into tears or get angry. Instead, she stared at Tyler, watching his face, her own unreadable.
Contrary to popular belief, life is a game. What other purpose can it possibly serve?
