Then you’ve found the right lad, don’t’cha think?
That’s probably the only thing we’re going to agree on. I guess I better introduce myself, I’m Maya.
The most convivial person you’ll ever meet. Of course you spotted me from a mile away — everyone does.
Yeah I did, I was looking for someone to rub me the wrong way.
Oh, um, s-sorry, I tend to talk really fast and things get jumbled and I just keep talking, and talking, and talking, and just… Yeah.
Totally get you, Maya. But I mean, it’s Bindlebrim. Nothing really bad is going to happen here, right?
Aha yeah, nothing bad’s going to happen… Is it just me or does those words usually invite bad stuff?
Well, any weather is my kind of weather. I don’t enjoy the cold, but I can take it. What about you, do you like the cold, or are you more of a summer person?
Winter’s too cold and summer’s too hot; I’m too indecisive for my own good. I like autumn though, watching everything change. New beginnings always get to me.
Stephane, it’s a pleasure to meet you. Tell me, does this place get a lot of snow in the winter?
A fair bit, it’s a frosty sort of town. Do you mind the cold or is this your kind of weather?
Don’t you love it, though! Now I have a reason to stay home under my covers all day without people callin’ a freak and stuff. Not they do but ‘ya know. Whatever.
Slow down kid, you’ll trip over your tongue.
I guess things are just getting to me after my… travel. This towns always kind of spooked me, even though I was born here for God’s sake.
If only it was cold enough to freeze your whining tongue.
Friendly. Don’t tell me; you’re a people person. Spotted it from a mile away.
[He shrugged.] I haven’t noticed, but now that you mention it, it does feel a bit brisk.
Maybe it’s in my head… Ignore the crazy people connotations to that phrase.
Maya, by the way, Maya L’Estrange.
Nice evening, isn’t it?
But no matter how many years I’ve lived here, it always has felt so frosty.
