Natani: N-no Basitin black magic? How… er, what gives you that idea?
Kat: Natani, please, I’m really tired and cranky. If you want my help, just be honest with me. I’m not going to judge you, Natani, but don’t lie.
Natani: Well, you see… I… you don’t understand, it’s just that… um…
Natani: A-alright, fine. The truth. There’s no Basitin magic, Keith was just covering for me.
Natani: But the… way I am is the result of black magic! It was just years ago…
Kat: Really? How? That’s not another “cover”, is it?
Natani: No, no, that’s true! (partially) But I don’t have time to go through my whole life story! Keith, danger, remember?
Kat: Well, you had time to come to me. What’s the matter with him?
Natani: He’s not in immediate danger, but… a spell I cast will kill him eventually unless the others can help me talk sense into the stubborn idiot!
Kat: What?! Why would you do that to him?
Natani: I wasn’t trying to hurt him on purpose! It… it was a mistake.
Natani: …I don’t want Keith to die because of me.
Kat: I see… well, there’s no way I can finish your robes today, but I think I can scrap together something to at least cover up your… figure. I’ll need an hour minimum, though. And in return, you tell me your story. The true one, okay?
Natani: (thoughts) Damn it, Keith. After I finish saving your life, I’m going to kill you for this.
