Cymbeline: Violet, you missed it, there was the coolest magical girl and she had a sword and she let me use it —
Violet: Sounds great, Cymbeline!
Thorn: Looks like everyone recovered their energy once the plant was destroyed . . . Magical Kudzu really wasn’t keeping it this time.
Violet: Go see Mom and Dad now, okay? Thorn, can we talk in the corner?
This other friend of yours. Kale. Have you ever seen him and Magical Kudzu in the same room?
Thorn: Wh — Yes! Karaoke, a couple months ago. When Kudzu . . . threatened Leif. Kale was there too. Passed out on the floor.
Violet: So you did actually see him? You didn’t just find him waking up after Kudzu left?
Thorn: Well — I —
Okay, I get why you’re suspicious. But it’s not true. You don’t know him.
Kale wouldn’t be a dark magical boy. He’s a good friend. He’s a good person. Just look at how caring he is with his family.
