Lure (Final Rose AU Snippet)
“Observe,” Vanille said, taking a sausage roll out of an air-tight bag and placing it on a plate underneath the coffee table in the dining room. “Young Faunus often have extremely sensitive senses since they’re still adjusting. As a result, they can almost always be lured with some nice, fresh food.”
Lightning sighed. “Vanille, I don’t think that’s going to…” She trailed off as Averia walked into the room, sniffing the air intently. The little, pink-haired wolf Faunus didn’t even seem to notice them as she made a beeline for the coffee table. She peeked under it, saw the sausage roll, and then walked off with it. “Okay… you might be right.”
“Of course, since we are doing this scientifically, we need to repeat the experiment.” Vanille poured some juice into a cup and put it on the coffee table. “And what better drink to wash down that sausage roll than some orange juice?”
Sure enough, it wasn’t long before Averia came back, took the cup of orange juice, and then left, all without ever looking at the two of them.
“In conclusion,” Vanille said. “If you ever want to get Averia to come over, all you need to do is to put some food out. It’ll be five minutes, tops, before she turns up.”
