Leia felt her face change as Effie asked what the seal was. She was more annoyed at herself for not asking that question sooner. Maybe it was because she did not want to know, or face the reality that there was nothing she could do to stop the seal doing what it does...messing up everyone's lives.
She looked at Effie, slightly embarrassed 'Honestly, I am still trying to work that one out for myself. I think if you asked anyone here they might give a different answer, I know its responsible for practically all of the unusual events that go on here.'
Leia was aware that she had probably confused Effie with this and felt the need to continue to explain 'My understanding is its a magical force that effect everyone in Lawrence in different ways, since I have been here, people have acted differently than they normally would and on a separate occasion, spoken like pirates.'
Leia looked at her new friend with empathy when she blushed whilst talking about jobs. 'I was a diplomat at the beginning of my career, I'm not sure there is much call for those here, so I would not concern yourself too much. Most are quite tolerant of the variety of people here.'
It was at this point she realised, she had not spoken to another being like this for a little while and she missed it. She was pleased that she had found someone she could call a friend.
