Summary: “Ah. Well, that would have been grouchy!Balthier acting up.”

“I never know what to make of you,” she admitted.

He shrugged as he walked alongside her. “Why, I’m perfectly easy to understand.”

“No you’re not. One minute you act one way, the next you’re different.”

“Well, that would be because Grouchy!Balthier decided to act up.” At her confused look, he continued. “Around the second month Fran and I started traveling together, she decided to label and catalog various moods I went through.”

Ashe arched an eyebrow. “Go through numerous mood swings?”

“According to her, yes.” He shouldered his pack. “Among the many, there’s Sneaky!Balthier, Smarmy!Balthier – though for the life of me I can’t recall ever being smarmy – and Bastard!Balthier, under which lies a wide variety of moods, Grouchy!Balthier being just one of them. I think I earned that one when I ate the last pomegranate we had in storage. To my defense, I hadn’t known that she had wanted it. Cranky!Fran is quite scary.”

Ashe couldn’t hold back a smile at the thought of Fran being anything other than her usual calm and collected self.

“I think she actually went so far as to write out a list once, complete with cross-references and detailed notations as to why she picked them out.”

“She must have had a lot of time on her hands then.”

“Well, we were land-locked for a month while repairs were being done at the time. I’ve looked at it, but all the connecting lines made my head hurt.” He kicked at a rock in his path. “I couldn’t help but notice that there were more negative traits than positive ones though.”

She laughed. “Maybe I should ask Fran if I could see this list.”

“If you do, ignore Sick-With-A-Head-Cold!Balthier. I have no recollection of that one, but apparently she thought enough of it to place it under the Grumpy category.”

A few feet ahead of them, Fran’s ears twitched and she shook her head.

“Anything wrong?” Basch asked.

“No.” Just Charming!Balthier at work.
