You think on this for a few moments. Simply spending time in the spring with Boa sounds like a comparatively cheap price to pay for her counseling, and a link with her could prove incredibly useful. You must be sure of her intentions first, however, and to do that you need to test the waters, so to speak. You remove your pack from your shoulders, rummaging through it for a bracelet. You find a small silver bangle tucked into the bottom corner of the pack quickly. Placing your bag next to your weapons, you turn and dive into the pool.
The squeal of delight that Boa makes is instantly muffled by the rush of water in your ears. The water is cool, but not cold, and though your clothes weigh you down, the water is not so deep that you struggle to stay aloft. You see Boa dive under the surface, and as you kick to the surface she swims a few excited circles around you.
"Welcome to the Spring, Osyki!" she says, approaching you from the side and wrapping you in a sudden hug. "It's been so long since I've had someone to swim with, you know."
You hand her the bangle, silently, as allow your body to go limp as she releases you. Floating on the water's surface, you feel much more at peace than you did a few moments ago.
"You never did agree to my terms." Boa says, fitting the bangle onto her wrist. "What do you say? I know that you've got your crush on that girl, you know. I'm not blind."
As she speaks, you can see her cleaning non-existent dirt from beneath her nails. She seems nervous, suddenly, and her shoulders are hunched.
"I wont demand you to act as Ayren did, Osyki." she says, using your name for the second time. "That's not within my interest. You're a boy, after all, and I know how dangerous the hearts of boys can be. But if you ever change your mind... let me know."
