Astrid glanced at Fiyori and raised an eyebrow as high as it would go, as the other girl stood up almost as soon as Astrid had finished talking. Oh come on. That just made the whole thing look worse than it actually was. Astrid was in absolutely no mood to get into even a minor debate right now, let alone a no-holds-barred screaming fest. She watched Fiyori almost perform an incredible faceplant before leaving, then turned back to Penelope, rolling her eyes, shaking her head and taking a deep breath.

Astrid listened to Penelope describe the game in a little more detail, taking another bite of… no, she couldn’t even call it food. Even her earliest experiments at cooking hadn't tasted this bad. She pulled another disgusted face, and shoved the plate to one side. If she was really hungry after all this was done, then maybe she’d go back to it. But not before then, absolutely not.

“So let me get this straight.” Astrid said, furrowing her brow. She wanted to choose her words carefully; Penelope didn’t seem like the sort to lash out in response to an offending sentence, but you really couldn’t tell with people. It was always the quiet ones, and other cliche statements.

“It’s your go to when the only option available to you is just… lounging around on the sofa, doing nothing? Don’t get me wrong, I’ve got nothing against video games. Like, I don’t have any interest in them or anything, but I know they can develop some skills and shit, and some people make a living off of them. That’s fine, but this-“Astrid gestured towards Penelope’s DS.

“-This doesn’t seem to have any of those benefits, other than ‘cuteness’.”

Astrid leaned back in her chair, folding her arms. Now she was interested in what other reasons Penelope had for playing this game, because as far as Astrid could see, it would bore her to tears. She'd read online that many doctors were using video games in order to heighten their skills, or something like that, but surely it couldn't be this game.

“No offense, but surely you could be doing something else with your time? Something more productive? Something more…” Astrid waved her hand in the air, trying to swat down the right phrase.

“Something more interesting, maybe?”
