Well - I'll probably head over there now, unless I am needed for something else."

The apartment door is in front of you, 207 stamped on the brass plate mounted in the center of it.

You knock on the door, and it soon opens up with a female chirop in a butler suit.

Chirop: "Good afternoon. Can I help you?"

"I'm looking for Mio? My name's Ralph Mebbit."


Chirop: "Ah, Mio has been expecting you. Please, come in."

The maid holds the door as you step in.

The apartment is tastefully filled with a mix of modern furniture and rustic knickknacks, preserved pieces of nature like resin tablets containing aquatic animals frozen in time, plants sprouting from ornate pots, paintings of forests and rivers and oceans, and the odd skull on a shelf here and there. A radio plays the local news, tying together the whole cozy feel.

Walking into the living room, you see two large couches facing each other with a coffee table in between.

Chirop: "Please, have a seat. I will tell Mio you've arrived."

You take a seat on one of the couches, looking around the room as the maid leaves.

A few minutes pass before a well-dressed dark-skinned woman appears, the maid in tow.

The woman's hair is done up in an ornate bun, and she's wearing a tan dress with a deep green capelette.

This is Mio, you think.


She takes a seat across from you, looking at you silently with a plain expression.







Mio: "Huloa, may we have some tea and biscuits?"

Chirop: "Right away, ma'am."

The maid leaves the room.

Mio pulls out a small book that was concealed under her capelette, opens it, and begins reading.




The maid returns with a tray in hand, packed with fine porcelain.

Huloa: "Tea and biscuits."

She sets plates and saucers in front of you and Mio, and then fills a teacup for each.

The plates have a variety of expensive looking pastries and crackers, which Mio begins nibbling at as she reads.

Huloa: "I hope they are to your taste, Mister Mebbit."

You take a sip of the tea - an aroma of earth, slightly bitter, and a hint of rice.





Mio: "Huloa, I wish to write a letter."

Huloa: "I shall retrieve your station, ma'am."


The maid leaves, returning a moment later carrying a collapsed table and a basket.

Setting the new table beside the coffee table, the items from the basket are removed and set - paper, an envelop, a fountain pen, an ink well, a wax stick, metal stamp, and matches.

Tucking away the book, Mio scoots over to the new table and after carefully filling the fountain pen, begins to write slowly and gracefully, displaying the calligraphy skills of someone with years of practice.

You try one of the plain looking pastries. The outside is just a touch crisp, while the insides are soft, moist, and delicately sweet. Simple yet delicious.



Mio sets the pen down, finished with her writing, and pulls out a fan and gently wafts air over the paper, drying it. She then carefully folds the paper into thirds, slips it into an envelope, and uses a match to light the red wax stick.

Hot wax is pressed onto the envelope flap, leaving behind a molten glob that is quickly pressed down with the metal stamp, which is soon removed to leave an intricate seal.

Mio hands the envelope to Huloa, who then hands it to you.

Huloa: "A message, Mister Mebbit."

"Ah, good. Do you have a letter opener?"
