The alchemist was glad that the woman didn’t think it was weird that she wanted to continue talking. She really needed to get out of that habit; so many times had she just done something without really thinking… atleast the outcome never came to something horrible— actually, scratch that part. She was delving into memories she didn’t particularly want to remember.
"Am I new? Hmmm…" said Rorona, taking a pensive stance; hand to chin, eyes closed, the lot, "Sort of. I’ve been here before, I know I have! But that was five years ago, so my memory of here is a little bit hazy… I’m not sure if any of the people I spoke to last are still here! So I thought I might as well meet some new people, y’know?"
She nodded at her own response. That was the plan anyway.
"Nice to meet you too, Senida! Hmmm… Senida… Sen… Senda…?"
The pie lover’s expression became a bit more harsh now; staring directly at Senida with a furrowed brow, serious expression and slightly puffed cheeks as she mumbled to herself. She did this with all new people she met, and it always be suddenly when she came to a conclu—
"I got it!" Rorona blurted,
"I’ll call you Seny from now on!"
She did this with all her friends, she liked to give them nicknames. It made it easier for her plus she just loved the notion of everyone having a cute name. Though… not everyone’s happy with her nicknames and just ask her to call them by their normal name, with which she’s had to comply— hopefully the woman won’t mind even though they’ve just met.
Senida wouldn’t have thought it weird, as she loved to greet people, especially newcomers. If anything, the wizard would be the weird one, going up to anyone and everyone, and talking to them to learn things about them and make friends. While it rarely had a horrible outcome, Senida knew she should be more careful when around suspicious-looking characters. She couldn’t help it, it was how she was, open-minded and all.
When she explained her newness to the city, Senida honestly wasn’t very surprised. She knew many others had been to the city multiple times, and she had seen many come and go. She herself had been to the city once before, three years ago. So, she knew how it felt to be out of touch with the city, starting over from the ground up.
"I see. We’re similar in that regard, actually. I have been to the city once before, as well. I was here three years ago before I came here again. There might be some people you know here, as I have seen a couple of people I met before here. It’s good to meet new people, though. You can learn so many things from others!" Senida had that much in common, at least. She felt she would get along with the other just fine.
The alchemist’s expression worried her for a bit until it relaxed. Before she could ask what was wrong, Rorona blurted out what she was thinking. The nickname she came up with reminded her of several people who had come and gone. The first one was of Yuri, who had come up with that very same nickname. Next, was Norma, who had come up with a rather unique nickname: Seke. Last, but not least, was an old friend of hers. A certain creepy scientist who had a knack for knowing just the right buttons to push to annoy someone. Still, all in all, she didn’t mind the nickname. It was usually a sign of friendship, thus it made her very happy.
"Seny it is, then! Thank you for the nickname.", she told her, grinning. Senida didn’t mind it, though they just met. If anything, it did sound cute, and certainly it wasn’t as bad as some nicknames she had come across. "Wait…Should I come up with a nickname, too? Or is ‘Rorona’ alright?" Ah, friends. Now that she thought about it, she hoped the scientists hadn’t given her a hard time during both visits.
