As her partner entered the room, Cerise could help but gain a face splitting smile at the warm greeting, immediately reaching out to shake the woman's hand with vigor. "Name's Cerise, and likewise!" She was slightly scared that her partner would have a personality that wouldn't mix too well with her own, but the way things were looking she and Maelie would be getting along just fine.
Without missing a beat Cerise would immediately step back, before pulling five books from some of the shelves and laying them out onto the table in alphabetical order. All of them displayed information on various regions around earth-land with a central focus on magical lore as per the job request. In order, they were Desierto, Iceberg, Joya, Sakuramori, and Seven. "These are the options that I picked out for us to choose from. There were other regions I could have chosen, but I personally wish to stay within Earthland-and these five look like they'll have the best chances of having artifacts for us to find. Well..besides Sin, but I'd rather not provide an extreme risk to our lives."
Moving over to the four books, Cerise would point towards Seven and Joya first. "These two are topographically similar, with both harboring largely forested areas ripe for exploration. Joya is more dangerous than seven but is also less explored, giving us more opportunities to find new artifacts to bring back." Taking in a deep breath, Cerise would then move over and point towards the remaining books of Desierto and Iceberg. "Unlike the last two, these are total opposites with Desierto being a largely uninhabited desert, and Iceberg being well...a giant iceberg basically. Both have plenty of opportunities for us to make new discoveries but the extremes in climate might prove to make exploration a bit more of a hassle than the other two."
Without missing a beat she would then shuffle over towards the book that detailed Sakuramori, holding it up since it was by itself. "In all honesty, Sakuramori is probably the easiest one-not only is it in Fiore but it also has many magical creatures and items, making it a prime choice. Truthfully, the other options are only there to give a variety. Sakuramori not only the most cost-effective, but also removes the need for any external items like passports or ships."
Stepping back she would give Maelie a moment to gather some thoughts, while also giving herself a break from the rapid-fire talking. She honestly had no opinion when she first started talking, but as she reviewed the facts she came to a clear opinion as to what her preference was. "As I said I'm thinking Sakuramori simply for accessibility, or Iceberg as secondary option considering we are already used to extreme cold. Do you have any thoughts?" She honestly was still a bit indecisive as to what she really, wanted and having a second opinion would really help cement a chosen place.
