APHROS
Before we begin, is there anything I can do to make you feel more comfortable? Some tea, perhaps?

MARIE
Not really a tea person. But you can start by turning on some lights so we can talk like real people.

RUBI
You don’t- have to do that.

MARIE
Yes she does.

APHROS
No, no, it’s perfectly alright.

A single lamp nearby illuminates the room. It’s small and humble, in stark contrast to the decadence outside. It almost looks like an office set up inside of a closet.

Marie and Rubi are standing in front of Aphros, who is sitting relaxed in a plush leather chair. She is tall and thin, with high cheekbones and the face of quiet power. Her hair covers one of her eyes completely and her long fingers are perched on the glowing lampshade.

Two chairs slide behind the girls, begging them to sit.

APHROS
