“Alchemy, again?!”

***************

{Calabolt}

“Hey, Haru-kun! I just read one of your articles on Nika’s page. It seems very interesting!”

{Haru}

(Leans back on his chair and stretches)

“You really think so?”

(Yuki cuddles the top of Calabolt’s head)

{Calabolt}

“Yeah! Alchemy… It’s a bit of a stretch but I feel a connection with that topic somehow…”

{Haru}

(looks at Calabolt)

“Hmmm?”

{Calabolt}

(strokes Yuki’s orb)

“Oh. Don’t mind me, I’m just thinking out loud…”

{Yuki}

(wakes up)

“…nhnnn… W-What are you guys talking (yawns) about?”

{Calabolt}

“It’s nothing, Yuki… I was just praising Haru-kun for a great alchemy article. If you prefer we can continue with the Recap…”

{Haru}

(flies in front of Calabolt’s face)

“No! No! I absolutely love the fact that you’re interested in it! In fact, let’s go over the fundamentals one more time!”

{Yuki}

(wipes his orb with his wings)

“Ughhh… Not that alchemy stuff again! That topic is soo boring.”

{Haru}

“It isn’t boring! On the contrary, it is an open window on our very own existence!”

{Yuki}

(hovers off Calabolt’s head and yawns)

“If you need me, I’ll just be in the living room.”

{Calabolt}

“I do have some questions myself… But I feel bad that Yuki would be excluded from our conversation…”

{Haru}

(presses himself closer to Calabolt’s face)

“Nonsense! If Yuki doesn’t want to discuss it, then he can just play on Nika’s tablet! And you did say that you have some questions regarding the topic…”

{Calabolt}

(tries to move back)

“I-I guess so…”

{Haru}

“That is why you must discuss it with me!”

{Calabolt}

(nervously sweats)

“Are you sure you don’t want Yuki to join in?”

(Yuki flies away from the two, grabbing Nika’s tablet)

{Haru}

“He would ask questions and I will answer them… But at the moment, he is not in the mood…”

{Calabolt}

“OK then… Speaking of questions, alchemy has elements right?”

{Haru}

“Straight to the point, I like that. And, yes. Alchemy has four major elements in Western literature: Fire, Wind, Water, and Earth…”

{Calabolt}

“Yeah. I’ve read about those, they are the primary elements that promote balance in the world. Sometimes, they are even called the Four pillars of the world.”

{Haru}

“That is correct, Calabolt. You have great knowledge on this topic.”

{Calabolt}

“Well, in college we had a philosophy class that briefly talked about it. Also, for extra credit, I had to make a report about it. However… Four? Hmmm… I just thought that… Nevermind…”

{Haru}

“Oh, you are not mistaken by your doubt. There is another element called Aether. The first mention of it was from the philosopher Plato.”

{Calabolt}

“Uhmmm… I thought it was Aristotle who wrote about it in his book *On The Heavens*?”

{Haru}

“No, Calabolt. It was actually Plato in his book Timaeus. Aristotle only supported his teacher (Plato) while he was in Akademia.”

{Calabolt}

(eyes brightens up)

“Oh!”

{Haru}

(coughs)

“Regardless, the four prime elements are self-explanatory. But we could demonstrate them one by one at a later time. Aether, however, remains the most…fascinating.”

{Calabolt}

(looks discerningly at Haru)

“What do you mean?”

{Haru}

“Well… For one thing, Aether is the element that holds all the prime elements together. It is something located inside but also outside of them.”

{Calabolt}

“So… Basically, a glue?”

{Haru}

“Precisely! So I did point out that the four prime elements make the balance of the world, right?”

(Calabolt nods)

{Haru}

“Aether is the one that keeps them at bay. To balance out the imbalance. It is really, mesmerizing. Anyway, I’m sorry if I got carried away. What was your question about alchemy?”

{Calabolt}

“Oh. It’s nothing. I just saw the elements and wondered if there was a correlation between Majรฏk and these elements.”

{Haru}

“Well, I cannot deny that. But to answer this question means that I would spoil the story so…”

{Calabolt}

(smiles)

“I get it, we just have to wait for the next arcs!”

(Nika’s bird squeaks from the living room)

{Haru}

“Oh, I think Yuki-chama needs me.”

{Calabolt}

“Who?”

{Haru}

“It’s Nika’s pet cockatiel. Since Nika is away, I need to take care of him. It was fun talking to you, Calabolt!”

(Haru leaves the room and makes his way downstairs)
