> You don't like ice cream?

CLOVER: Christ, Effy. Ya want a ghost to eat ice cream.
EFFY: Um... I still don't really get it, sorry.
EFFY: ... You don't like ice cream anymore?! But that means...
CLOVER: *groan* No, course I still like ice cream!
EFFY: So we can keep coming here??
CLOVER: Yes!
EFFY: Then... What's the problem again?
CLOVER: She's a GHOST!

CLOVER: Ugh, fuck, I need to keep my voice down!
NIMAH: Oh, no, it's fine.
CLOVER: Like hell it is, people are starin'!
NIMAH: ... Ah. That may be so, but... What I mean is that I want to eat the ice cream.
EFFY: See? Ghosts love ice cream!
EFFY: Gosh, I had no idea...
CLOVER: Oh my GOD--
NIMAH: Hahaha. Well, I'm not sure if you could say that as a rule, exactly...

[Image: s5mrOln.png]

NIMAH: But I would very much like to try it. It should be possible when I am solid.
EFFY: That's so cool! So you can still taste stuff? Do you have a stomach? Does...
EFFY: Wait, you've never had ice cream???

CLOVER: Oh my GOD, Effy, where d'ya think Nimah was supposed to get freakin' ice cream hundreds of years ago off in god knows where?!

CLOVER: Ffffuck, I did it again, fuck, let's go some other place!
EFFY: I-It's fine...!

wait, that's not... is that...? so he can...?

Oh, and... huh. I wonder why overhearing "she's a ghost" and talking about being solid didn't set him off... but that line did. Was it the "hundreds of years ago", or the name Nimah?

>Coffee guy: Wait! I'm sorry, did you just say...?

You are, among many other things, a man of letters and mathematics and science, and you would say what just transpired was, in a sense, a collision of those same worlds. Certainly, any loud-mouthed girl can speak of ghosts, for whatever reason that strikes her fancy. Any child can have a silly, faintly amusing argument about long-dead ancestors and why they should or should not eat ice cream.

But add those words to that name and to the face you wondered if you recognised when you glanced behind your shoulder, and you arrive at one simple, yet startling conclusion.

[Image: 8YxEK9G.png]

EFFY: Um... Let's sit down! M-Maybe in the corner here? There aren't even a lot of people here today, so...!
CLOVER: No, we're leavin'!
EFFY: Clo, it's fine...
CLOVER: Yeah, well, maybe if ya help me find a believable freakin' excuse for all the stuff I just said--
EFFY: Uh... I guess we could just come back when there's someone else at the counter...
NIMAH: Wait, what's this one on the menu? This "Chocozuma"? May I try it?
EFFY: S-See, she wants to try that one, so we should sit down and...
CLOVER: Ugggh, it's just a name, they got the same thing at the other place!
EFFY: ... Clo, seriously, it's ok, we can just say we were talking about... About, um, a show, or...

> Coffee guy: Wait! I'm sorry, did you just say...?

[Image: DgCUY1u.png]

???: Please! Could I have just a moment of your time?
CLOVER: No!
EFFY: Um, sure.

[Image: hXZXY2J.png]

???: To be quite blunt, you are the one I would like to have a word with.
NIMAH: Me?
???: Yes. I couldn't help but overhear your name.
NIMAH: Ah... I... am not from around here.
???: Oh, of course. Neither am I.

[Image: oPIUXIb.png]

???: I have recently arrived here from my home country of France, in fact. And although I was curious about what I would find here, I never imagined I would find you.
NIMAH: I don't understand.
???: 1728, hidden well to the west of Chunjujub. You very nearly tore a hole in my face. Somehow, we found an understanding, despite my exceedingly poor grasp of your language - which I am afraid I still haven't corrected...
NIMAH: ... Oh my goodness! Is it really you?
EFFY: You know him?
???: It's quite astounding, but yes! Please, call me...


AUTHOR'S NOTE:
Spoiler :
Whoa, you finally get to name a character? For the first time in this thread, actually?? Wow!

So, dear readers, who shall this mysterious French scholar be?

Beauregard T. Historien, it's an ironic name, but an apt one.

Jacques Schmidt. The name's not quite French, but I'm a genuine Frenchman.

Haha, what? No.

???: Beauregard. Aubin Beauregard. Or, of course, simply Aubin. Friends of an old, dear friend have no need for such formalities!

[Image: 82zLY5V.png]

NIMAH: Wait... That isn't...
AUBIN: The name you know me by? I know.
AUBIN: But you know me, do you not? My fondness for mingling with humans is as healthy as ever!
AUBIN: ... Not to mention, a change of pace is nice from time to time.

[Image: MSXwjT5.png]

AUBIN: But! These are topics that are perhaps not the best fit for a place like this. If I may suggest...
CLOVER: (Psst.)
EFFY: Wh... (What?)
CLOVER: (This dude is shady as fuck, is what!)
EFFY: (Huh? No, he isn't... He looks like... like a librarian, or, ooh, maybe a cool historian, or...?)
CLOVER: (Effy, for cryin' out loud, did ya even HEAR him basically say he ain't human--)
NIMAH: Oh, of course! Would that be alright with you two?
EFFY & CLOVER: What?

[Image: tsYp7aM.png]

NIMAH: His suggestion. Is that alright?
AUBIN: You have your ice cream, I have my... new attempt at a coffee, and we can have a chat on our way out?
CLOVER: WHAT?? Look, man, maybe she knows ya, but we don't, and I don't see why we gotta let ya just tag along like we're--
AUBIN: My treat.
CLOVER: Huh?
AUBIN: That IS how you say it, isn't it? I will treat you to the ice cream. My treat.

The irascible young lady has been successfully persuaded by the idea of savings.

You have the feeling you have as many questions to ask as they do. What an interesting turn this trip has taken!

>A wise-man once said, "Empires rise and fall, but all pales before frozen dairy." Remember, no matter what earth shattering revelations Monsieur Beauregard provides, your delicious ice-cream must remain a priority.
