(soft sigh from behind Belle)
Rikki: AH! Um... no... I was just... I LOVE that song....
Belle: No, wait. It's okay. I just heard you sigh is all. How do you know that song? It's been almost completely lost. Would you come up and tell me where you heard it, please?
Belle: Wow, that would have been a long time ago, it's an ancient song. I'm just now learning it from Wendy, and SHE learned it from a Bard in the North. Um... I'm Belle. What's your name?Belle: AAAH!!! (shivering)
Rikki: Woah!!! YEAH!!! Good one!!!
Rikki: Oh, Belle! Are you okay?
Belle: I'm... I'm terrified of storms. I always have been. This one sounds like it's going to be TERRIBLE...
Belle: Really? I didn't realize elementals specialized.
Rikki: Yeah, dad once worked for this guy who wanted to know if a storm could be used to beach a ship in a specific place, 'cause he was writing a story about that, and so dad TOTALLY wrecked this ship for him. It was an okay story, and the guy was so impressed with dad, he named it after his storm! Some English guy... um... Shakley or Shakely or somethin.'
Belle: You're telling me your father wrecked a ship to show Shakespeare that it was possible, and he then named "The Tempest" after your father's storm?
Belle: (smile) Okay, it's a deal. You're hired.
Belle: Well, I don't think I'll be having you sink any ships. Sorry.
Belle: I don't think I'll be asking you do to that either. How about just accompanying me to the portrait in the next room. Sound okay?
Rikki: Sounds like a fine start!
