Chapter 13: Time to play nice….

WN: Huge thanks to Sapphiet and Faraday Fan for their awesome reviews, (note Faraday Fan, all shall be revealed…) :D

Edgeworth's P.O.V

Even though the events of this whole sorry evening would be enough to throw anyone off balance, the appearance of this old lady managed to surprise me. Even though I had never met her before in my life…. Fran… Kay… clearly had. I stared at Kay, then back to the newcomer, and asked politely:

"I am sorry…. My name is Miles Edgeworth… we are here for a friend of ours… Miss Fara-"…

"Oh no… you mean Miss Von Karma do you not?" Mila Wicca chuckled slightly, and leant on her stick.

"She… She did this!" Kay gasped, and tried to lunge at the woman, but I managed to intervene in time.

"Pardon my friend's rudeness…. Unfortunately she is under a lot of stress… wait…. HOLD IT!" I focused my glare on the old woman.

"You knew?... what… how… did…" I couldn't believe this….. it defies all logic…

"Yes dear… they came to me on Miss Faraday's birthday…. I needed to show them something…." She explained.

"Show… show us what?... we were just on a night out….!" Kay protested.

"Ah… but did you two really learn anything about one another?... did you respects the feelings of one another…" Mila pointed out.

"Well yeah!... of course… oh alright maybe we were rather hard on each other… but she… come on Miss Wicca… she doesn't deserve this!... she is a good person… I am sorry…. I did misjudge her….. please… I know you can bring her back…" Kay pleaded, and to my utter amazement, a small tear trickled down her… well… Franziska's cheek… I hope they can get changed back soon…

"Please Miss Wicca… we would be in your debt if she lives…" I interjected. I silenced Kay, who seemed to be about to utter something along the lines of "Well she got us into this mess! We owe her nothing!" Sometimes I fear that girl needs to return to diplomacy school.

"Hmm…. I shall… consider it… think on the lesson I have tried to teach you today Miss Faraday…. You are one of the many pairs who have needed my guidance that may actually learn from this…." And with that Mila Wicca hobbled out of the door…

"Wait… so she has pulled this stunt on some other unsuspecting party goers before?..." Kay muttered.

"I think I understand now… what she meant…. How did it feel to you being a prosecutor…. Being in her shoes?" I asked..

"Fun…. But…"

"Secretly terrifying no doubt?" I questioned. I got my response when she nodded….

"Well, I think she was trying to teach you to be more understanding of one another… and to see how you can treat those around you…." I explained…

"But it's Franzy who needed that, not me!" Kay huffed.

"Not exactly…. Whilst I do love you Kay Faraday…. There are times where you can be… reckless… thoughtless… and pretty insensitive…" I remarked..

"….." She looked angry, yet thoughtful for a moment….

She was about to say something else, when suddenly she got up… weaved a little, then fainted in my arms…

And before I had a chance to react….. A doctor came rushing out, and replied:

"She's alright…. She's going to be fine!"

I silently breathed a sigh of relief…. But then wondered…. Does this mean they have changed back?... I was about to find out….
