You watch Elana go, unable to hold back a sigh. Boa giggles slightly, watching your expression.
"Well, I seem to have made a terrible mess of things for you Totemist." she says, her tail swishing back and forth. "I apologize."
You shake your head. "There's no need to do so. We were the ones intruding. Boa, I'd love to talk to you more, but right now I need to catch up with Elana. Is there another time that I could come talk to you, soon? I have some questions about my master and the forest, and you seem to have worked closely with him."
She laughs at that, pushing off the rock shelf to perform an incredibly distracting backstroke.
"Come back any time, Totemist. I'm not going anywhere. Give your ladyfriend my regards, wont you?"
She blows you a kiss and winks, then turns and vanishes beneath the surface of the water. You stare at the pool for a moment, stunned, before taking off to follow Elana.
You catch up with her in fairly short order. She hears you coming, and stops to wait for you. You can't be sure, but she seems pleased to find you pursuing her.
"Sorry about that." you say, slightly out of breath. "Spirits, eh?"
She shrugs, then continues walking. "Hey, it's your job, Osyki." she says, her tone neutral. "I'm not going to interrupt that. You've got an important duty to do for the village."
You grimace. Placing a hand on Elana's shoulder, you spin her around and look her in the eye.
"Duty or not, I meant what I said. You're important to me, alright? Don't forget that. I'll always find time for you."
She stares at you for a long moment, then cracks a small smile. "Alright, Osyki." she says, placing an arm around your shoulders. "Let's get back to the Healer's hut before I shrivel like a prune, alright?"
