[Whenever anyone in Verens needs him, Natsume can be easily contacted via his crystal, a small pendant shaped like a lucky cat, which he usually wears around his neck~ Please note in the header whether the message is visual, audio or text, and when it was sent.]

[ Oh for heaven's sake, child

Merisia sends a map Natsume's way. Nothing particularly fancy, but easy enough to read. ]

Knock three times when you get here so I know it's you.

[ Merisia slides the lock open and peeks through the door...yep, that's Natsume. Accompanied by his dog, of course. Merisia lifts an eyebrow and opens the door fully, stepping back. ]

C'mon in.

[ She's not one for greetings, as you can see.

Carbuncle, whom had been sitting on the bed, bounds over to say hello to the visiting canine. Hi, friend! 8D

Merisia's apartment isn't all that large. It's studio-sized, and while roomy and well-furnished, it'd feel empty were it not for some scraps of cloth lazily pushed aside to keep the floor clean. Her robe is also hanging on the back of a chair, leaving Merisia in her camise and skirt instead and looking a bit smaller than she usually does as a result.

There's also a small, wrapped package on the end table near the bed. Huh. ]

[ While Carbuncle and Kyan-san are engaged in play-fighting, Merisia pauses for a moment to blink at Natsume, her cheeks turning a little red before looking away. ]

It's just what I wear when I'm at home. It's nothing special.

[ Merisia, it's very slimming on you, just take the compliment, geez.

She plucks the package up from the end of the bed and hands it to Natsume. ]

Here. It's for you.

[ It's...a rather bulky package. But inside is a large, fluffy coat. ]

[ no never

Merisia quirks an eyebrow, folding her arms and sighing. ]

I've never seen someone so excited to receive a box...

You can thank me once you've seen what's inside the package, Blondie.

[ Carbuncle, though? He's just gonna happily squeak anyway. ]

[ Of all the reactions Merisia was expecting, that was not one of them. Carbuncle lets out a worried wail and hurries over to Natsume's side while Merisia grabs one of his shoulders. ]

Blon-Natsume, what is it?

[ Although her tone is as stern as usual, the underlying kindness is still clearly conveyed. She honestly doesn't know how to handle this sort of situation; comforting people isn't exactly her area of expertise. ]

[ Natsume's words take a moment to sink in. Merisia hadn't had a lot of gifts in her lifetime, no, but she'd still receive the occasional gift, typically from her sibling or - later - from Emerek. It wasn't a foreign concept to her, and she'd hardly thought much of it. For Natsume to react like this was...not something she was prepared for, let alone knew how to handle. If he'd been more...normal about it, she'd had plenty of dismissive comments to keep him from getting too mushy on her. But this?

She had no idea what to do with this. But she'll do her best anyway.

Carbuncle trills warmly, jumping up to rest both paws against Natusme's leg so he can better lean against him for comfort. Merisia, meanwhile, loosens her grip on the boy, instead resting her hand on his shoulder for lack of not really knowing what else to do with it. ]

...w-well, I know it's still the summer, but it's going to be getting cold sooner or later. I wasn't sure if you had anything warm to wear, so I saved up a few extra sylvs for the materials and, well...

[ The reason Merisia hasn't been so out-and-about lately? She's been working on this for you, buddy. ]

Thought you could use something like it, so. Here you are.

[ Wow, she's great at this. ]

[ Merisia gently pulls over a chair. You're gonna want to sit down at some point, kiddo. ]

Of course I did. I just...wanted to get you something good, and it's easier and cheaper for me to just do that myself than to trust any of the stores here to be up to par. So...

[ Yeah, she's just. Grasping for excuses. Stop being so nice, geez, you're confusing her.

Finally, though, she lets out a sigh. ]

I'm, ah. I'm glad you like it.

[ The young Arcanist twitches a little. Between Natsume and a certain Shepherd, she's got enough kids sparkling at her to last her the rest of the Seventh Umbral Era. She has no idea how to handle this.

Buuut she's gonna do the best she can, for Natsume's sake. ]

Just looking out for you, kid.

[ To that end, she's gonna reach over and mercilessly ruffle his hair a bit. ]

Can't always be there when you're getting in scrapes, so... 'least I can do is make sure you stay warm once it gets cold out.

[ It's not frequent that Merisia sports a warm smile, but now is one of those times. It is, of course, laced with her usual confidence and wit, but it's there all the same. In fact, the room itself seems to warm a little as well, and the colors around them seem to brighten a little. ]

Pfft, of course you can. It's yours, after all.

[ She did her best to make it nice and comfy, too, not just warm. It'll definitely get the job done when winter comes. ]

[ The way Natsume just sinks into the collar of the coat is just adorable. Carbuncle lets out a loud trill of approval while Merisia takes a seat on the bed and folds her arms, more relaxed than she's been in a while. ]

It looks great on you. I might even go as far as to say you'll be the most handsome young man this winter.

[ She's only mostly teasing him. It actually does look good on him. That, and it seems happiness is highly contagious right now.

Protect Natsume at all costs. ]
