"Oh, the stories were never too complex, but they were a lot of fun to set up," Molly waves her hand somewhat dismissively. "A sad clown decides she wants to leave the circus and become a ballet dancer, a shrew old, woman who dreams she could fly... But my most famous show is about a noble prince who travels halfway across the world to propose to a beautiful princess he'd met at a ball, only to realize she's a man! They still marry, heheh..." She continues on and on, blissfully reminiscing on her days past, almost like she's talking to herself more than anything.

"W- Wow, that does sound m- more interesting," Anissa says, seemingly somewhat more pleased to not be talking about herself. "So... uhh... wh- what kind of stuff did you susually perform about?"

"Hmm, it's no good if you're not passionate about your skills. But you must be really good at it if your family is pushing you so far." Molly thinks on it for a moment, but the question posed on her causes the girl to immediately light up.

"Oh! That's right, I'm a puppeteer! I don't look like it, but I'm actually a big-shot performer in my father's show. 'Cirque Maximum,' it's a big deal back home, and I happen to be the lead act! Well... my puppets, technically, I try not to put myself in the spotlight for too long. I'm no good showing my face to the crowd... But it's a thrill knowing that so many people enjoy the act. I'm like a junior ringmaster!" She puffs her chest proudly, looking expectantly toward Anissa.

"I'm no artist... All I c- can do is put rubber bands together in v- vaguely recognizable shapes..." Anissa explains, glumly. "M- Most of the money I get for it comes from my p- parents marketing me around or r- roping me into my s- siblings endeavors..."

Hoping to change the subject, Anissa asks, "So... uh... you're th- the puppeteer, right? Wh- What's that about? It sounds less... depressing..."

"Ha! That's actually better than I thought it would be!" Molly gleefully exclaims, but considers the last comment a little more carefully. "You don't enjoy the attention? But... that seems like a talent a lot of people would be happy to see. I can't imagine hiding my talent like that... well, not in that kind of way, anyway."

"B- Believe it or not, it's s- somehow even less interesting than it sounds..." Anissa mumbles, tugging at the rubber bands on her arm. "I... I just got bored and b- built the largest rubber band ball in the world... and f- for some reason that was worth getting dragged to Hope's Peak for... My p- parents made me d- do sculptures or whatever after that, but I just wasn't i- interested anymore..." Anissa trails off, sighing.

"Um... right." Molly stares at her own hand in wonder for a few moments, but quickly turns her attention back to the other girl. "Sooo I was curious about your talent. You're a... rubber band artist? I wanted to see what that's like, because it sounds like such a weird thing to be good at. Tell me about it!"

Anissa recoils and shouts, "O- Oh God, help! She stabbed me! She's got a kni-" Anissa notices a little too late that she hadn't, in fact, been stabbed yet. She calms down and mumbles, "Oh, s- sorry... Uhh... I guess since you haven't killed me yet, we can t- talk..."

"What? Hey, that's rude! I'm being nice to you, I want to be friendly! This is friend talk!" Molly pouts and pokes Anissa's shoulder a little too harshly to emphasize her point.

"Wh- What?" Anissa shouts, backing away slightly. "N- No, there's no way anyone would want to talk to me! You're trying to k- kill me, aren't you?"

"Great, but just a 'yes' would be fine with me." Molly frowns at the girl's nervous rant. "That's why I wanted to talk to you. You always look so scared, like you're gonna cry all the time. So, I'm offering you my company! That's good, right?" She leans closer and grins expectantly.

Anissa recoils in surprise, caught off guard by Molly's enthusiasm. Eventually, she replies, "Uhh... W- Well, considering I'll probably be d- dead in a few days, I suppose I d- don't really have much time at all... B- But I wasn't doing anything right now, so s- sure..."

"Hey! Hey, Anissa! Hey!" Molly shouts excitedly as she sees the other girl, waving frantically. "Do you have time to talk?"
