Cynthia let out a cheerful hum and offered her dad a grin and was just about to give him some sort of answer when her mother suddenly arrived, causing her brown eyes to go wide.
" Mother!? " seeing Sumia so covered in dirt and limping shocked the younger pegasus knight who let out a horrified gasp, oh how her plan had gone wrong!
Cynthia closed whatever distance there was between her and Sumia and offered her a hand to help even out her balance as she gave her mother a worried look and scanned over her for any injuries she might have been able to see.
" Are you okay!? Are you hurt!? Oh gods.."
The white haired pegasus knight was brought out of her panic when the sound of Henry’s voice adressing her snapped her out of it, and a small sense of another sort of panic filled her.
Her first plan had failed and now she quickly had to switch to plan b, but would plan b work if wasn’t preceded by plan a?
Well, there was only one way to find out..by going full speed ahead with it!
" Well…y’see…I saw that the two of you are on cooking duty together the day after tomorrow! And I figured.. why not go get some extra ingredients from the nearby town? It can be like a family outing! "
Nobody would ever know that she had been the one to swap positions around so that her parents would be stuck on cooking duty together, right? At least she hoped so.
And surely if they spent time together doing things, they would get things to talk about and get to know each other better! Maybe they could even find gifts to give to one another..or maybe that was a bit too soon.
Cynthia just really wanted to get the two talking to each other.
"I am fine. I just stumbled a little on the way here." Sumia nodded her head. A little was an under statement. She knew that very well seeing as she contemplated not coming to this place. While the limp was far from pleasant it was not the worst injury she had gained from tripping. It was only a slight limp after all. It would take some time to heal but it would not be the end of the world. As for the dirt she would have to let her dress soak in water to get deeper stains out.
"Huh?" The older pegasus knight lifted her eyebrows in surprise. This was certainly news to her.The last time she had kitchen duty she had double checked who she was suppose to work and it certainly was not the dark mage in front of her. In fact if memory served her correct she was suppose to be working with Gaius.
This seemed a little suspicious. Cynthia was certainly up to something. The pegasus knight was positive. As flighty as she was even she could take notice to it. However, now wasn’t the time. She would confront her daughter privately about the matter. Plus a little shopping for ingredients never hurt anyone right?
For now she would just play along and ignore the minor slip up in the girls plans. “That sounds like fun. I’ve been meaning to pick up some ingredients.” She agreed with a small smile.
