I haven't read your previous entries, Quantum, but thought I'd comment on this one.

The whole discussion between Arla and Lirana was interesting, but too human for my likes, if you know what I mean. Razz They both sound too shy, which I'm sure is just part of their personalities, but Elites are generally ballsy. In my mind, they're supposed to sound a bit different - a little trace of wit or sarcasm would have spiced the discussion. That's just my opinion.

Something else also bothered me ...

The word "maybe" gets too redundant. Watch those repetitions, they're very unpleasant.

Overall, a fairly good job. 7-8/10. Wink

I'm with Trooper on this, the personalities of the Elites are way too much like humans for my taste, and that's something I've noticed in all your stories. Also, whiskey? Try making some type of alcohol up and say "Arla walked into the bar and ordered _______ one of the regions drinks" that's just an idea of how you could do it.
