*Dagmar and Kreel enter, she looking generally unhappy and wary, and he more calm, bit still suspicious* *they look at each other confusedly and take respective seats*

Interviewer: Hello. *smiles* How are you?

Dagmar: *kinda huffs, doesn’t respond*

Kreel: *smiles a little* I’m all right.

Interviewer: What are your names?

Dagmar: Raina Karlyle.

Kreel: *looks at her from the corner of his eye, kinda proud like, “good, you haven’t punched anything yet” XD* I’m Kreel Maykis.

Interviewer: How long have you two known each other?

Kreel: About… five years, I’d say?

Dagmar: *nods* About that, yeah.

Interviewer: How did you meet?

Kreel: *chuckles* She punched me in the face after I spilled coffee on her shoes. That’s, uh… actually, I shouldn’t go into that.

Interviewer: I guess that answers the next question of “did you two like each other when you met.” But I guess you could still answer, Kreel?

Kreel: *laughs* I didn’t mind her. She hated me.

Dagmar: He’s not wrong. *shrugs* I thought he was an arrogant know-it-all. He still is. *punches him in the arm kind of gently*

Kreel: *grimaces* Ow.

Dagmar: That did not hurt, you baby. *huffed*

Interviewer: What are your favorite things about each other?

Dagmar: *laughs kind of derisively* He’s useful.

Kreel: *shrugs one shoulder and hides a snort* She’s honest. That’s one thing you can count on.

Dagmar: *raises an eyebrow* Why are we here anyway? Why us?

Interviewer: *shrugs* You were picked semi-randomly. What is your favorite thing to do together?

Kreel: Take walks when we stop for rest. Usually through back alleys or forests.

Dagmar: *scowls at him* Speak for yourself. I take walks. He tags along.

Interviewer: How would each of you describe your relationship?

Dagmar: Relationship? We’re not even a couple.

Interviewer: You have a relationship, whether it’s romantic or platonic.

Dagmar: We don’t have a relationship.

Kreel: No, that’s not true. We’re friends. *smiles a little bit at the interviewer* Its okay. It’s a little tense due to the nature of how we know each other.

Interviewer: It’s impossible for you to have no kind of relationship. Even if you loathe each other, that’s still a relationship. *chuckles*

Dagmar: Well, I don’t loathe him. I guess we’re friends. If he wants to call it that.

Kreel: *chuckles softly* I’d say so.

Interviewer: *subtly skips over a question* What are your love languages?

Kreel: *smiles a little more* Mine is quality time. I was crippled for most of my life, and it always meant a lot to me when people would take the time to be around me. It still does.

Dagmar: *her scowl deepens* I don’t have a love language.

Kreel: *shrugs a little* Everyone does. You just might not know it yet. *kind of soft*

Interviewer: I’ve heard that before. What’s your favorite memory together?

Dagmar: We don’t have one of those either.

Kreel: We don’t have a lot for time for fun memories I think is what she means.

Interviewer: What’s the most embarrassing story you two have together?

Dagmar: I have one. But he wasn’t awake. And it mostly embarrasses me, so I won’t tell it.

Kreel: *shakes his head a little* I honestly can’t think of one. We have about as big of a margin for embarrassing moments as we do error in our line of work.

Interviewer: If you could do one thing for your partner, what would it be?

Dagmar: *looks at Kreel for a moment, something about her looking slightly softer* Let him see his family again. I know they mean a lot to him, and it would mean a lot to them to see him healed.

Kreel: *looks slightly shaken* Oh. That’s… sweet. Thank you Raina. *kinda murmured* I didn’t know you thought that way.

Dagmar: *shrugs a little* Sure, I guess.

Kreel: *looks up again at Dagmar* I’d show her how the world is supposed to work. Give her the heart she is so obviously lacking. *the last part more teasing* If I could do one thing, it would be the ability to look at the world through… I dunno, I don’t want to say rose-coloured glasses, but at least let her have a softer outlook.

Interviewer: *nods a bit* What are some of your shared hobbies?

Kreel: Running, actually. I beat her every time, of course, but she does like to run off steam. And exploring unexplored places. Old buildings. When everyone else is dead asleep and no one else is around.

Dagmar: Arguing.

Kreel: *chuckles*

Dagmar: We also share the hobby of telling Gaden to shut up. If that’s considered a hobby. *she’s beginning to loosen up slightly, I think*

Interviewer: Where is your favorite place to go, explore, or hang out together?

Dagmar: Old city buildings and back alleys. You never know what you’ll find there.

Kreel: And you can’t help but wonder who used to live there and walk those paths.

Dagmar: *snorts, but you can tell it’s half-hearted, i.e., she knows he’s right*

Interviewer: What’s your favorite meal to eat together?

Both: Potatoes.

Interviewer: Who was your first boyfriend or girlfriend?

Dagmar: I hate people. *as if that’s an acceptable answer*

Kreel: I never had one, really.

Interviewer: Well, that was the last question. Thank you for your time. *smiles slightly*

*Both stand*

Kreel: Thank you.

Dagmar: *shrugs* Sure, I guess. *walks with Kreel out*
