Re: [Dream Training]
She smiled at him. It was a little smile, a toying smile, something more than her vacant and usual expression, and she didn't answer. Of course, of course she didn't answer. She'd told her siblings what she was, but that was only because she thought it was wrong to keep lying to them. She'd gotten really, really upset about Jamie and Hugh lying, and it was hypocritical to keep doing the same. But it was dangerous to go telling people, and a big part of her didn't want to. She didn't want to see how people looked at her differently, and she didn't want to see if they didn't look at her differently, and it was better to shhhhh. "They're paying a lot to contract me from CARNEM," she said, and that was true. Albin was paying and paying, and all because she'd been able to alter a dream world that was supposedly impossible to alter.
She wasn't surprised about his comment about Arthur, not even a little, but she was a little surprised that he said it plainly like he did. And, Hannah being Hannah, she just cocked her head and looked at him, and she spoke plainly too: "I didn't expect you to admit that just like that," she said, and it was a compliment; she hadn't seen it coming. She didn't doubt Arthur was really, really good at everything he did.
Hannah wasn't really sure how someone could make something in her head, but she soaked up the words, a greedy sponge that would store it all away for later, for quiet, for mulling over and turning and turning it until she'd seen all the sides. "I don't understand what you mean about the architect being deployed. I thought they made the dream. Or changed the dream? I think they said something about altering the dream?"
She stopped when he did. There was no projection. Nothing and nothing, nothing at all, and she looked over at him. Curious, curious. "Should I try to change something?" she asked.
