"People are probably nice to you because they take pity on you," Alexei responded, not missing a beat in his tirade against humanity. "In case you don't know this, I'm fairly sure there's a screw loose in your head. That's not necessarily a bad thing, since the insane people make all the progress in technology and such, but people tend to think it's a disability of some kind.

"As for Blane, well, he's a strange one. I'm only with him because he's the one responsible for my magic; I can't get rid of him without getting rid of my magic as well. I haven't really figured him out yet, although I have noticed that he's kind of a flirt." He shot a glare at Blane as he said the last part, and the light elemental just laughed.

As for my personality, I won't deny that I enjoy flirting, but I also consider myself to be a chivalrous man." Alexei rolled his eyes at the last part. "Get over yourself," he groaned, which only made Blane chuckle more. "Anyway," he said, "Our travels now take us inside. Feel free to join us if you'd like, Almy; there will be a truly rare sight at the end of the journey."
