Leila simply had to perform an internal sigh of relief when Astrid seemingly perked up a little after few seconds. She was honestly worried that she was only getting in the way of someone who had to hurry somewhere. Thank goodness that was not actually the case. As time moved on, Leila needed human connections more and more. It was odd, such a drastic change was happening to her state of mind and only because she finally started interacting with those around her. Of course she was always interacting with people, but she never had any time to make friends. That was just the life of someone who walked the path. Always on the move and never staying for too long. Friends would only drag her down. But she left that old life of hers behind her back, probably for a long, long time. She had no intentions of traveling the world alone anymore, she wanted a companion. And while she had her trusted two pets at the hotel, their connection was a little bit different from what she was seeking. Perhaps this was what humans called 'love'. Such an ambiguous term, and yet it held power this great. It was truly fascinating to her, and the fact that she felt this way, it had to be evidence of her becoming more accustomed to the society around her. Well, it was about time this started, given the fact that she lived for more than 19 years in the Earthland. Focus more on the person in front of her, it seemed that they had a common goal. While Leila didn't exactly need to visit the guild, there was no problem with her actually doing it. So why not!
"Guild, huh? Alright, I could accompany you! If you don't mind, I mean. I would totally understand if you're someone who appreciates silence over talking, so don't hold back because of me, okay?"
Nature of this girl was still a bit unknown to Leila, so she wanted to make sure that Astrid would not go out of her way for this. But she wasn't hesitant at all in showing Leila her case from closer distance. And inside was her tool, capable of creating beautiful music. It wasn't as if Leila didn't know how these things worked. Again, she traveled the world. And while doing so, she met many street musicians that played a great variety of instruments. But violin seemed somewhat more rare. It was something elegant and delicate, capable of producing sound that could pierce the soul itself. Something that could speak to the listener personally. Amazing indeed, and she had a great respect for those who were capable of playing these instruments without fail. She never had time to learn anything like this, though her adoptive father did play a simple wooden guitar from time to time when they camped near the road. Those times were fun and created fond memories for Leila. And now that she had her life in her own hands, perhaps she could stop for a while and learn how to play too. Though hearing about her guild master playing this instrument too was quite surprising indeed.
"I had no idea... but to tell the truth, I met the man only once. And he did not have any instruments with him at that time. Maybe I'm just deaf to the rumors and information going around the guild, that's probably it."
She was one of the three Aces, but she spent surprisingly little time in the guild itself. Perhaps that was the main reason for her lack of knowledge. For some reason, Elyx didn't seem like the type that would play violin to Leila at all, but then again, you should never judge book by it's cover.
"Still, playing instruments like these... it must be amazing. I'm kinda envious~"
Her words were spoken in a playful tone, indicating that she didn't mean that in a negative way where she would actually be jealous of other people. It was nothing more than a desire, and she had to get a teacher and some free time to fulfill it eventually. There was still so much she had to do in her life, too many goals. But as long as it was driving her forward, everything was fine.
