cilde: i saw what happened, with your toy. you shouldn't make them out in the open like that.
cilde: you have to make sure no one looks when you do something for yourself. they're getting better at detecting these toys now, so...
tilde: doesn't matter. i'm not making any more toys for myself from now on. it's too dangerous.
cilde: yes, but...
tilde: but i don't want to end up like the exiled elf.
cilde: that elf is only a legend. and if you don't make any toys for yourself at all... wouldn't that be just as bad?
