"Easy. Cus I’m trying to figure out how we both ended up this way."
God damn it. He had a point. Well, might as well try and get out. Rather go out with at least some sense of dignity rather then surrender.
Axel took a breathe and let the flames engulfing him raise higher and flare at the walls in attempt to break them. But obviously it failed. And after a short moment, the oxygen in there was gone and Axel was left standing there, flame-less.
Ienzo quickly let the reflect down as the flames vanished-he didn’t want to kill Axel. That would rather annoy the Master, after all. “Are you done?”
"Well, only if your done." The remark was probably snide, but oh well. It was as it was. He was just glad the other had enough sense to put down that wall - he would have suffocated had he not. Nobodies could suffocate couldn’t they? Maybe not. But Axel wasn’t about to find out the hard way.
"You’re the one who started bugging me." Ienzo raised his eyebrows, then went back to reading.
"As if. Get your head out of the clouds and your books and start thinking of productive things." As if Axel was one to talk.
"Please don’t start channeling Xigbar. I am not dealing with that." He was tempted to throw this book at Axel, but that would probably just net him a burnt book. "And I am being productive. This book is for research.”
"Oh yeah? What kind of research?" In the end, Axel was still rather bored and this was probably the most entertainment he was gonna get yeah?
"Magic mixing. It’d be useful to be able to better meld elements-for one, we could likely heat the castle more effectively." He, for one, would kill for a warmer bedroom.
