"So did anyone bring the popcorn?"
Roman barely even flinched as Xaiver said this, his eyes fixated on the screen.
"Hmm? Oh, yeah, no, sorry," Roman replied in a droning monotone, as he was completely engrossed at the moment.
As the test run went on, Roman began to smile, all the while it grew bigger the more impressed he became with Haruka's performance.
"Haruka's mother taught her ballet dancing. She was a great dancer and combined with the skill of Japanese Kendo and Chinese martial arts, it made her a great candidate for battle suit operating,"

Haruka said to Xaiver, making Roman look at his friend with a teasing grin.
us, friend," he teased, and prodded.
As Xaiver left, Roman looked back over at Haruka with a smile, backing away from his spot, and saying politely, "You can have this spot Miss Haruka, seeing as it's right next to Takahashi, and you're both 'analyzing'
