Something was going on between Amethyst and Poppy. Felix knew it, but he didn’t have any proof and he didn’t know what it was.
‘Felix what’s wrong?’ Teina asked from the bed in Felix’s room, one that he was going to share with Tom.
‘The Cosmo Twins,’ Felix said
‘What’s wrong with them?’ Teina asked she was pissed. Felix was talking about her family and he was saying something was wrong with them. Maybe it was the fact that they talked together.
‘No… I think there’s something they’re not telling us.’
‘You haven’t told us your life story, so why should they?’ Teina pointed out, the only one who knew anything about Felix is Lovell and he wouldn’t tell her anything, because it would abuse Felix’s trust. Her husband wouldn’t do that to him… no matter how much of a brat he was.
‘I’m going to the bathroom,’ Felix said. He was getting sick and tired of that fox looking at him… even if it was glaring at him. He wanted answers and he was sure that he was going to get them. ‘Okay, who are you?’ He asked as soon as the door was locked.
‘So you can see me?’ The fox asked ‘only the mistress and her sister can normally see me.’
‘Yes,’ Felix said while thinking over what the fox had told him ‘mistress’ who was that ‘I can see you, but what are you.’
‘You don’t know,’ the fox asked as if the answer was the most obvious thing in the world.
‘I wouldn’t have asked if I had known,’
‘Hilaria?’ Felix repeated
‘Yes… that is my name,’
‘So you answered my first question,’ Felix sighed ‘can you answer my second one?’
‘Shiki,’ Hilaria said
‘That was the word,’ Felix said ‘isn’t Shiki a Chinese custom?’
‘Yes it was,’ Hilaria said looking at him like he grow another head ‘are you okay?’
‘I’m fine,’ Felix said his slightly tanned face going red for acting weirdly in front… of well anyone. ‘Who’s your “mistress” anyway?’
‘Why are you following me?’ Felix asked leaning against the sink, he was right. Those two were hiding something… and that something had to do with the case.
‘Mistress told me to,’
‘I’m guessing it’s the same with Tom?’
‘Yes before Nero and I had to watch Tom, Nero stayed with Tom,’ Hilaria told him floating above the tub ‘In fact Nero and Prumus are still with Lovell and Tom.’
‘Who’s with Teina?’
‘Isolde’s with Teina,’ Hilaria said
‘How do you know our names?’
‘We have ears you know?’
‘Oh right,’ Felix said rubbing the back of his neck in embarrassment.
