...This is a bar. Why is this a bar, and not a supply closet?
...That must be a lot of pain, but again, people are weird.
"Anyway, I think I'll hang out and practice for a while." She pressed the blue and purple flower back in and resumes moving her clothes around in random directions.
Anna is completely casual about flower-growing, even though the magic seems to think it should hurt as much as a transformation every time. She keeps going until she has three dozen roses, nine of each kind.
Levitate. Levitate. Move things over to the other side of the room. Levitate. The pink-yellow rose comes out, she may as well not run up her tolerance if she's only practicing one thing at a time.
"I wonder if you could tell me enough about airplanes and refrigerators and bicycles that someone can make them, back home."
"I probably can't. I don't know hardly anything about that stuff."
"Too bad. The magic roses will have to do."
"The magic roses are pretty nifty," she says. "Good luck with your giant monsters."
"Probably not for a while, but it sounds like I've given you all the actual help I can, so 'good luck' seemed like the next thing to say, you know?"
"Makes sense. Thanks."
Back to practicing. She puts various roses in and out to change what she's practicing once in a while.
Anna continues drinking her enormous chocolate milkshake.
She tries to make small talk with Anna once in a while, telling anecdotes or asking something about technology between practicing with the roses.
After a while of this, she decides a break is in order so she changes back to regular clothes in the bathroom and orders a nice big delicious meal from Bar.
"Unless you can think of something else useful for me to do, I think I'm gonna go now," says Anna.
"Let me just scribble some notes real quick about what I think they do, and have you correct me if they're wrong..."
She gets out a notepad and scribbles. They're mostly right.
"Looks about right to me," says Anna, skimming the notes. "I haven't gotten to all the kinds of magic myself... you're not wrong about any of the ones I've used."
"In that case, good luck with whatever you end up doing, and thanks."
