"Ah yes, thank you..." Stella smiled as she retrieved her twin hammers and put them in her pocket dimension. The boy then questioned why she was so flushed. "What? Me? Eh heh heh... it's nothing really. Just a habit."
Of course, her crush on Cynthia was meant to be a secret between her and her alone, apart from some family tradition where secrets are shared between Stilton twins/triplets/etc.. Maybe when she sees Colby again he'll share oddly similiar love problems as well.
She snapped out of thought and tried to change the topic.
"Hmmm... wonder what we will be fighting next. Maybe a Lovecraftian Horror, I've faced lots of those in the past. Deep Ones weren't hard to deal with at all, although I almost died fighting the Atlach-Nacha with my brother, where I lost limbs. Good thing he was there to fix them back. We barely escaped."
Stella then realised something.
"I am not good at remembering names so may I ask what your name might be, young lad?"
