If you’re also wondering about that, well, you can continue to wonder because East evades the question and does not bother to answer.

Well, there is an answer, but it’s not what you’re thinking.

Let’s hear it for East’s response: “I thought you liked it. You did not protest when I called you 'Sky' a few sentences- ah, I mean, a few posts or so ago.”

“Huh.” West blinks, confused. “Did you, now? Really? Oh. I must have missed it then.”

East smiles slightly at that. “I am not surprised in the least.”

“Uff, whatever, East. Just don’t call me 'Sky'. And don’t break the fourth wall by mentioning things like 'posts'. That’s totally not cool or awesome at all.” The Superhero pouts.
