Have another random snippet. Let's see what I actually manage to finish this coming week. Hm, hm. I'm writing a bit here, a bit there. XD;

As we waited for everyone to gather, I patted my side, checking on my daggers. I had my main pair on me, as well as several spares I could use as throwing daggers to give me a long distance advantage. While the expense would add up, I could use any advantages I could get. I was definitely going to make the mission a success and impress my teacher!

When I finished taking stock of my weapons, a newcomer had joined us, and Ecilan's cheeks were rosy again. So he hadn't managed to completely lock that reaction away. The thought relaxed me just a bit.

"For me?" The newcomer exclaimed. "Ecilan, you're the best!"

The newcomer stepped closer and took the offered cheesecake. Side by side, he was nearly half a head shorter than Ecilan. He wore the robes of a cleric and had a veil that was pushed over his blond hair in favor of the cheesecake, which he was already happily munching on.

Was he Ecilan's friend?

I'm not entirely sure myself how cheesecake is becoming so prominent in this story.
