—I see you came back.
[There is only a passing glance offered to the boy’s face, to acknowledge his remark, followed by a savoring sip from his drink. A moment passes before he addresses the boy, leaning back and speaking in a low sigh of a voice]
… If you seek conversation, come closer. There is no sense in barking from a safe distance.
[He didn’t want to get closer, but it did seem that Yevon wasn’t posing much of a threat for right now. So cautiously, he took a few steps closer, still maintaining a some-what safe distance.]
—You disappeared for a while. I figured what you had said was all bluffing.
Such hostility. I would advise against it in this summer’s heat, or you will work yourself into a faint.
[He takes another drink before continuing, the ice in his glass clinking like a subtle chime]
I do as I wish, boy. If you have not seen me for some time, it is because I had no desire to be seen. It is simple as that.
