The Guardsman listened to the future Reader's explanation...

...with a frown on his face. He was about to say something along the lines of "this is getting ridiculous, now it's time for you to go" until he spotted a familiar silhouette several steps behind the Reader. She was clad in a fancy black Victorian dress and wore a hat with a veil that completely obscured her face. She cocked her head to the side. Something told the Guardsman that behind it, she was smiling.

The woman raised an arm to adjust her veil. On her wrist was a bracelet identical to the Reader's. The Guardsman smiled and continued listening to the Reader go on about how Naya didn't manage to follow him to the party.

"You know, for someone who kept on telling me that I'm 'not perceptive enough', you're surprisingly unaware of everything that's going on around you," said the Guardsman once the Reader had stopped talking. "You're also forgetting that Naya and I have also been friends for a long time. She's always had my back-- no matter the time or place. Isn't that right, future-Naya?"

The veiled woman had snuck up on the Reader and quickly wrapped her arms around his waist. "Gotcha," she said. "Don't worry about him, Emiran. I got him under control."

          Future-Naya let go of her husband. "As for how I knew... heh. As if I'm gonna spill the beans! If you start trying to be sneaky-beaky like, how am I supposed to keep an eye on you, huh?" She turned... more

            "Every. Time." He reached for Naya's hand, twining their fingers together. "I can't even go to the past without him mangling my name! Why does he have to do that? I've never mangled his ! I just call ... more

              "...I think that Emiran doesn't like being called 'Emi'. Just going off on a limb here," said Naya. "Also, that reminds me: on your next vacation day, we should go somewhere tropical. I was thinking... more

                      • The Reader grinned back, less cheekily this time, and kissed her knuckles. "And," he added, both cheekiness and smile fading into sincerity, "you 'wow' me all the time. You don't have to step up your ... more
