Santa paused and was....intrigued as she listened. She had actually ALMOST expected another cryptic answer. Something like 'how you grow smart is something only you can know'. But to her surprise, the woman actually seemed to have something in mind! AND IT WAS AWESOME! Suddenly her eyes were wide with excitement~!
She'd always had.....limited visits to the world of the living thanks to her power. Attracting hollows always complicated things. BUT, with Tier with her to keep them at bay? She could ACTUALLY be able to learn how things worked! Not the .....rushed little ins and outs she was always forced to take. She tensed, her shoulders hunching before she suddenly hugged Tier! "Of courrrse, that's brilliant! I....I won't have to keep running back here if you're with me!"
She exclaimed excitedly, and in that brief moment, she would briefly lift Tier clean off the tree in that little hug before setting her back down and releasing her. Sheer excitement written across her face. "I am so ready, Tier!"
She declared, smiling from ear to ear excitedly.
