His presence surprised her as well, although it wasn't unpleasant. A social butterfly herself, Lani smiled at Zak as he approached. "Hi! Yeah, that's perfectly fine." She said. "I'm Lani. I go to the Lemuria. Atlantis House. What about you?"
“It is nice to meet you, Lani,” Zak said with a smile, “I am christened Zak. I, too, go to Lemuria. Are you enjoying your time there?”
Lani sat along the edge of the pool, dipping her feet into the water. Somehow in these past few weeks, she managed to overlook the fact that there was a swimming pool on the grounds. She could have gone back to her room to get a swimwuit, but the teen decided against it. It was late and for now, this would suffice.
From one pond to another, Zak had always found peace when he was swimming. There was healing in the water, this he firmly believed, and he felt it most when he was alone.
This night, however, he was surprised to find that he was not alone as he had originally thought. Most decided to avoid the pool at night, for whatever obscure reason, but not tonight.
Being that he was, after all, still something of a social creature, Zak made his way towards the lone girl. “Excuse me,” he began, “I would like to begin by introducing myself if that is quite alright with you.”
Light glanced away at the question, sighing, he finally said, "I have been tracking my father," He finally admitted. "I believe it is time I pay him a visit." Looking back to Zak, he said, "After that I am unsure. I would enjoy seeing your home but I do not think I would be welcome."
Zak pursed his lips, knowing full well what it was Light would most likely do if he were to meet his father. “I do not have the power to stop you from seeing your father or from carrying out what you wish to do, though I do urge you to reconsider.
As for my home,” he paused, looking down at Light, “you would be more than welcome. We are not ones who deny a person, especially one considered a friend by any one of us, the privilege of entering or at the very least staying by the shore. I have no doubt that you would be welcomed with open arms.”
