How do you do, Lady DeCobray. [A little more formal than usual to start out with, because Ana is a member of the peerage and a stranger.]

Since the Professor biffed off to parts unknown, it seems that the Admiral decided that it simply wouldn't do to have me at loose ends for too long. He's assigned me to be your warden. Would you mind terribly if I popped by and asked you a few questions, my lady?

I prefer not to be called that, actually, darling. Ana or the Baroness. I don't like to use my husband's name.

Come over whenever you like.

Bertie Wooster, my goodness, I am fortunate.

You can find me on level one, room eleven.

I have, Bertie. Loads about you. [And she thinks it's cute the Admiral assigned him to her.

You should stop by and grab a bottle of wine, Bertie. I think it'd be a good idea. Something to get us off on the proper foot.

[Ana opens the door with a charming smile, and her eyes widen a bit at the wine.] You picked an excellent vintage, Bertie. Well done.

Come in.

[She took a step back and let him into her room, which was her room from her husband's chateau, rather well furnished with antiques.]

I'm afraid I don't have a corkscrew. That whole tricky weapons bit. It makes having a good glass of wine quite problematic, really, darling.

I don't suppose that's something you can fix for me?

[Ana watched him as he puled out the corkscrew and then the cork, her face breaking into an amused smile. Quickly she held out her hand for the cork.]

Here, let me try that, darling.

Well, I'm stronger than I look, darling.

[Ana smiles pleasantly, and then she fake struggles for a moment before she says.]

Wow, it's on there tightly!

[Once it's removed, she hands him the cork.] There, no harm no foul.

I suppose I am a bit. But after all, that's just what the modern woman does, Bertie. Goes to the gym, keeps herself looking nice and fit for her boyfriend... [Turns into a ninja assassin! It could happen to anyone!]

Why I do bad things? [Ana's lip wibbled a bit, and she looked down, letting her hair fall over her face. Her voice wavered slightly.] Have I done bad things, Bertie? I mean things that are that bad?

Spam (No worries.)

Yes indeed. We need to look good after all.

I was only doing what I was told, Bertie.

Just trying not to do bad things? [Ana stared at him for a moment, and handed him a glass of wine, being amused by all of this. Just not trying to do bad things.]

Is that what I need to do to graduate? [The question was asked earnestly, and with a smile.]
