With the children gone for the summer and the staff being pretty non-existent, the giant castle felt a little lonely, hollow even. The former teacher roamed the empty halls, looking wistfully around as she could still see the children rushing around from class to class. A faint smile crossed her lips as she remembered scolding a few of those same children for running in the halls, afraid that they would hurt themselves. She had no idea if she was a favorite amongst the ghosts there at the school, but she was certain that she was the most active...well apart from Ryder maybe. He might move around the castle a little more than she did, she wasn’t sure really. They weren’t always in the same place on the grounds at the same time. The only time she really saw Nancy was when the poor dear wanted to seen. And then it was only in the Library of all places.

Agnes could understand her affinity for the room. It did house all the books that Nancy loved to read. And she supposed the Neanderthal running the room wasn’t all that horrifying, all things considered, since he was allowing an 11 yr old little girl to leave “gifts” for Nancy on a back table. They weren’t exactly Aggie’s idea of a proper gift. Who leaves rotten food around for someone anyhow? But Nancy had told Harper that she missed eating food so the dear child took it upon herself to leave it around for Nancy as a gift. Agnes found the action a little gross and a waste of lovely food, but Harper was doing it for Nancy to make her happy, so the old ghost would keep her comments about it to herself. Besides, she loved it when Harper came to the Library to visit, even if it wasn’t her she was visiting. She grinned again when she thought of all the books he kept around the Library open for Nancy to read.

Agnes sighed to herself with breath she no longer possessed as she thought of the big oaf. He wasn’t soo bad, all things considered. She wasn’t all that thrilled with his attire, attitude or vocabulary, but with the proper prodding and a tiny bit of manipulation, (an action she would never admit to doing) perhaps he could be properly motivated to look and speak less like a hooligan. Yes and Dementors could come flying out of her bottom, distributing flowers and sunshine to people, her mind argued, making Agnes laugh. Okay, so maybe in a lot of ways, the big lummox was completely hopeless, but she was determined to make SOMETHING about him respectable. Even if it killed her all over again. Could a ghost die twice? Agnes didn’t know. She would have asked Kiri, but the old voodoo witch wasn’t around anymore. Another thing that saddened the old ghost. She loved to debate facts with Kiri, the woman had marvelous insights.

Agnes made her way back to the library, unconsciously in search of her fellow spectors. She couldn’t help thinking of Nancy and Ryder as like grandchildren of hers. She knew that there was no real relation between the three ghosts, but that didn’t stop her from thinking of them affectionately. They were both soo young when they died. They had their whole lives ahead of them before it was snuffed out. It still made her sad sometimes to realize that. Such a shame. It also seemed terribly unfair to her that she had been allowed to live a rather full life before she passed and those poor children had been robbed of such a privilege. It broke her heart. Well, it would if she still had one to break, that kind of became obsolete when her body ceased to exist. Luckily she could still remember emotions and feel them all, however that worked for ghosts. Agnes was still no expert on that subject despite her vast years of learning.

Upon entering the Library, Agnes grinned when she found the books open in their spots for Nancy. Yeah...the oaf wasn’t all that bad. Agnes glanced around for the young girl, but was unable to spot her. Hiding again no doubt, Agnes thought to herself with small amusement. She’d coax her out soon enough from her hiding spot, she hoped. Floating around the corner..well, gliding would probably be more accurate, Agnes found Ryder in his usual spot in the Library. “Hey kiddo,” she greeted him, smiling warmly. “Quiet here with no one around, isn’t it?” she asked him. She would have leaned against the bookshelf nearby, but really, what was the point when you had no physical body anymore? “You haven’t by chance seen Nancy around today have you?” she asked the boy.

Ryder shook his ghostly head. "Nope, haven't seen her. Sorry." Really he'd just arrived in the Library himself, and hadn't had time to look around too much. He liked to roam around the school, especially when it was so quiet around holiday time, though he would kind of miss the hullabaloo of things, and he would miss the nice smells that came along with cooking meals. Ryder could easily remember the feelings of excitement that came along with the end of the year.

Sometimes summers were hard for Ryder, because that meant that his Death day was approaching at the end of it, if he was allowed some sort of correspondence with his dad, then it could be pretty good, but if his sister interfered again, then it meant bad Mo-Joe.

"It's probably quiet because of the end of the exams and getting ready for summer." He barely even looked up from the manga that lay on the ground in front of him. Since he had a lot of time on his hands, you know being dead and all, he had discovered that he was kind of good at picking up languages and now with the help of a dictionary, he could read a small bit of a manga in Japanese.

"Nope, haven't seen her. Sorry." Agnes smiled at Ryder as the young ghost shook his head regarding knowing the whereabouts of Nancy. “That’s alright sweetness. I’m sure she’s floating around here somewhere,” Agnes joked lightly, chuckling a bit. Somehow the older spook always managed to make herself laugh at her own jokes. She was sure that Nancy was probably hiding out somewhere in the library. She never seemed to leave it very much. That poor girl really needed to get out and about more. It might actually do the poor dear some good. She couldn’t spend eternity being afraid of everything and everyone she came into contact with. It made for a very depressing afterlife. At least Agnes thought so. It was only part of the reason why she made it a point to involve herself in the school and its inhabitants. The other larger part being that she had always just loved being around people and being in the school gave her opportunities to talk to some very interesting ones from all over the place.

"It's probably quiet because of the end of the exams and getting ready for summer." Agnes nodded in agreement with the boy. She had noticed the TOADS and HAWKS exams taking place for the older students. She had hung around in the background for a few of the exams, watching some of the students she had tutored over the years do marvelously on their exams. She was sad to know that she would no longer see their smiling faces around the school building any longer, but that was the nature of things. The children would all eventually grow up and leave the school once their tenure there was over with. It was the way things should be. “Yeah...I know. I cheated and watched some of them take the exams,” she chuckled, letting Ryder in on her little secret. “It was nice to know some of my tutoring actually stuck. I was a little worried with a couple of them for a moment there,” Agnes chuckled, shaking her head.

"Anything's possible. With a school this big anyone could be anywhere, and you wouldn't know." Ryder had his mind occupied, as he manipulated the air around him so that he could turn the page in his book. Once a student always a student, he guessed, well as long as it didn't have anything to do with maths. Somehow Ryder found himself smiling at the old ghost's joke, it wasn't overly funny, but he liked to see people laughing. Over the last few weeks Ryder had had some interesting thoughts and possible annoyances about the topics that were being covered on the Wizarding wireless, but because of the time of the year, he had no one to talk to about it. Really other than conversations about studying, no one was interested in what he had to say, because exam fever had truly taken over. "There's so many pretty flowers in bloom, have you seen them Aggie?" He wasn't sure if any of the other ghosts went outside, other than for events.

As the years went by Ryder had learnt to understand that things changed and people moved onto bigger and better things, though he had never sat a proper exam himself, he'd died right before the start of his fifth year, when he would have been taking the TOADS. "Study hard to play hard." That was something that his father was known to say about most things, but sometimes it was true.

"Anything's possible. With a school this big anyone could be anywhere, and you wouldn't know." Ryder told her, making Aggie sigh and nod. That statement held a lot of truth to it given the size of the castle. There were times that Agnes herself would have to remind herself where in the building she was because she had gone wandering and forgotten for a moment where she had meant to go. It seemed that even death hadn’t curbed her penchant for forgetting periodically. A stigma of old age she supposed. Aggie had to smile a little at that thought since it had been quite awhile since she had been considered old really. Granted, 75 was considered a lengthy amount of time in the grand scheme of things she supposed, but being dead added another almost 80 years to her existence. Would she still be considered “old” per say at that point? Agnes shrugged mentally at her own thought process. That was another thing about being a ghost that Agnes didn’t truly quite understand...thoughts. How was it possible for them as formerly existing humans to still have a thought process when you technically had no actual brains to speak of?

Aggie still didn’t have an answer for that question that satisfied her to any degree. Alive, she had studied all sorts of subject matter from Horticulture to Medical science, but none of it had given her any idea how ghosts were still supposedly able to think after death. None of them explained how ghosts were able to do a lot of things that they were able to without the use of their bodies anymore. It was a subject that still fascinated the former Professor and one she still found herself searching for answers on. “I suppose you’re right about that,” she agreed with him, reigning in her wayward thoughts. If Agnes really let herself, she get lost in her own thoughts and be trapped there for days before realizing she had been sitting in the same spot without moving for quite a while. It was a trick of hers that unnerved a few people she was sure. “She might be hiding in the secret passages again, although to be perfectly frank I don’t quite understand why they consider those “Secret Passages” when just about every child here knows about them,” Aggie commented, shaking her head at the absurdity of the whole thing. Really though? Could something still be considered a secret when almost half of the student body knows about it? At that point they may as well leave a sign on the wall, advertising it’s existence and be done with it really.

Agnes leaned over to get a better look at the whatever it was Ryder appeared to be reading as the two of them spoke. “What are you reading there kiddo?” she asked him, now curious about the book, whose pages he was manipulating air to turn. Agnes actually envied the boy’s ability to do such a thing. She had tried it on occasion herself, but only managed to blow the pages almost clean out of the book. Somehow she produced far too much air and her attempts at it resulted in books being blown around. It was a tad annoying, but mildly amusing when it happened as it bothered the big brute when it happened. She found it amusing when he grumbled under his breath at her before picking up the books affected by her efforts and putting them away. "There's so many pretty flowers in bloom, have you seen them Aggie?" Ryder had asked her as Aggie was still leaning over trying to make heads or tails of the book he was reading. “Hmm? Oh, yes dear. I have,” she told him, giving up on trying to read the book sideways and upside down practically. “I especially love the new azalea blossoms that have bloomed over in the courtyard. The purple ones are quite lovely.” Agnes loved to roam around the school grounds as much outside as she did inside. While the paintings in the castle provided her with stimulating conversations from time to time, nothing compared to her wanderings around the castle grounds some days. Seeing the world changing around her and participating in that change sometimes helped Agnes forget periodically that she was a ghost.

Ryder perked up for a second, almost abandoning his manga. He knew the reason for the name of secret passages and it was exactly for the reason that Aggie had pointed out. "Secret passages are called that, because they are used for stealthy travel, escape, or movement of people and goods. So, you're kinda supposed to be aware of them, even if you don't know the direct route they take." Over the top memorized book explanation? Check. possible over simplification of some facts? Check. It was pretty weird, when you spent most of your time reading, and just picked up some weird random facts. Heck, from reading he'd learnt about the process of making some pretty fancy foods, even though that was useless information. "There's likely to be a few creepy friends in the Secret passages." It probably seemed like an odd comment to make, but Ryder liked spiders, he found them fun to watch.

"It's called Orange. It's a Japanese manga, they're a type of comic." It was hard to explain, so he just gave the basic of basic information. "It's in Japanese, so I'm guessing that it must belong to someone who speaks Japanese or is Japanese." He kind of just shrugged a little, he didn't know what people did in their free time.

"Secret passages are called that, because they are used for stealthy travel, escape, or movement of people and goods. So, you're kinda supposed to be aware of them, even if you don't know the direct route they take. There's likely to be a few creepy friends in the Secret passages." Agnes listened to Ryder explain to her the essential purpose of a Secret Passage, which she already knew from having studied such things herself, but it was always gratifying to find out what he knew about such things. “Huh...you would almost think that a secret passage by its very nature should stay...well...a secret since it’s name suggests that it was meant to be there without people’s knowledge,” Agnes couldn’t help arguing back. “The name itself implies that its supposed to be something that’s unknown. It’s no longer a secret if everyone knows about it is it?” she asked the younger ghost. Creepy friends? What in the world is he going on about? What creepy friends? Agnes wondered to herself, giving Ryder a questioning look before the answer dawned on her. Creepy friends….ahh Spiders. Agnes had never been a huge fan of spiders while she was alive. They just creeped her out. Dead...well now they’re not even a minor nuisance.

Agnes couldn’t help noticing the book that seemed to capture Ryder’s attention. Curiously, she had tried to make heads or tails of the silly thing and couldn’t tell what the devil it was. It wasn’t anything she had ever really seen before. "It's called Orange. It's a Japanese manga, they're a type of comic. It's in Japanese, so I'm guessing that it must belong to someone who speaks Japanese or is Japanese." Agnes tilted her head to look at it again and still couldn’t make sense of the silly thing. “I didn’t know you could read Japanese dear,” she stated to Ryder, looking back at him. “Someone left it here in the Library then?” Agnes asked, curious as to whom the book might have belonged to then. She could think of a few Japanese students there at the school. Maybe one of them left it by mistake before they left for the break. She would have to bring it up with the Neanderthal to make certain the child who is missing the book gets their property back. “Have you found anything else in the Library belonging to one of the students?” she asked him, curious to know if anything else had been found in the Library by Ryder.

"I can't say that I really have a reply to that. It's probably just dubbed that because it's easier to say 'secret', as it's implied or something." Ryder couldn't really explain it, he never had been really good at debating out known facts, history wasn't really his strong point. "What about Priest hole's, though, they're supposed to be secret and a lot of people know about them and they're supposed to be secret?" It was a good retort question, to Agnes' comment. The hidey holes were supposed to be a secret too, but many were reported to the police during their time of use, including those that had actually, been found. "There's lots of things that are implied that, but the facts don't match up with the evidence." Ryder absent mindedly pushed up his ghostly glasses, sometimes he forgot that they didn't actually fall down anymore.

"I can only kind of read it, hence the use of the dictionary. Mum tried to teach us when we were younger. She took a gap year and traveled around Japan, Thailand and Korea for a while, some kind of medical mission or something, when we were too young to go with her." Ryder could vaguely remember how that attempt had gone down, but it was kind of funny and heart breaking to remember. The French lessons had been a lot easier to take in, mainly because it had been sprinkled in throughout general speech.

"Yep, I just found it sitting here on the couch." Ryder looked around for a second, while in the library he usually positioned himself on the couch beside the manga or on the ground near the horror section. "Honestly, this place needs to get their manga collection updated." He scanned the shelf above his head just right in front of him, he'd read many of those manga volumes before (some multiple times). "Oh, what did you say?" He'd been distracted for a second and didn't hear what had been said for a second. "Uh, there was a rubber duck under one the tables the other day, and I think there's a pencil case lying around somewhere." There were lots of things hidden around the place, but he'd be pushed if he could remember them all.

What about Priest hole's, though, they're supposed to be secret and a lot of people know about them and they're supposed to be secret? There's lots of things that are implied that, but the facts don't match up with the evidence." Agnes looked at Ryder for a moment before chuckling at the child’s retort to her question. She had to give it to him, she hadn’t thought of the Priest Holes when making her argument regarding the Secret Passages around the school. “You are absolutely right kiddo. There are quite a few things that are implied where the facts don’t match up about them,” she agreed with him, impressed by the argument. “I’m impressed Ryder dear. You keep that up and I’m certain that you’ll be able to completely out argue me at some point,” Agnes chuckled.

"I can only kind of read it, hence the use of the dictionary. Mum tried to teach us when we were younger. She took a gap year and traveled around Japan, Thailand and Korea for a while, some kind of medical mission or something, when we were too young to go with her." Agnes could imagine at that moment that her eyebrows were probably up into what would have been her hairline (if she still had hair of-course) as she looked at the younger ghost in surprise. “My my my Ryder...you are certainly full of surprises aren’t you?” she chuckled, shaking her head at the young ghost. “I’ve had others try to teach me different languages over the years and most of it sticks as long as I’m speaking it. Writing it is a bit of a challenge though,” Agnes chuckled.

"Yep, I just found it sitting here on the couch. Honestly, this place needs to get their manga collection updated." Agnes rolled her eyes and shook her head at the younger ghost, trying not to laugh again. He would be worried about whether or not the library carried any more copies of his particular book. “I’ll be sure to pass on your request to the Neanderthal who sits at the front desk,” she told him, trying to sound patient. "Oh, what did you say? Uh, there was a rubber duck under one the tables the other day, and I think there's a pencil case lying around somewhere." Agnes listened to the list of items he gave her and cocked her head to the side. A Rubber Ducky and a pencil case? The pencil case she could understand, but the Rubber Duck? That one had the old ghost stumped.

"We should start up a debate club, with the only requirement being that you know useless facts about stupid things and be able to argue for hours on end." Ryder said as a kind of funny retort to the idea of being able to out argue Aggie, it made him happy because now he could say that he had a voice and wasn't a mouse anymore. But he felt like he may have had a brainwave with the idea of having a debate club, although he doubted in himself and didn't think that anyone would be interested, especially since those things could turn friend against friend. "Nah, sometimes it’s the fault antiquarians if they're the ones that originally investigated things." He said going back to the original point of the conversation. It was mainly a problem in Europe, especially considering how modern-day archelogy came out of antiquarianism.

Ryder had always been taught that learning another language was important, both as a form of communication, but also as a way to find understanding within your natural tongue. "Mum wanted us to learn as many languages as possible. Dunno why, but she did." He was clueless on that one, but it kind of helped in certain situations he guessed. "I'm usually better at reading or writing in a different language, then speaking in it, other than French of course." He weirdly found the need to add that useless piece of information for no reason.

"Ok, great." Ryder felt happy about the possibility of getting a bunch of new manga to read, he usually tried to avoid the Liberian. Ryder found Sata rather scary looking and was too nervous to even ask for help if he needed anything. He wasn't exactly too concerned about the rubber ducky, for all he knew, it could have been used for some sort of Transfiguration experiment.

"We should start up a debate club, with the only requirement being that you know useless facts about stupid things and be able to argue for hours on end." Aggie felt a smile spread across her face as she listened to Ryder’s wonderful suggestion. A Debate Club!! What a fantastic idea!! Agnes was always a fan of debates, even as a child she had loved to argue points with people. She didn’t always make people happy with her debating prowess, but she had done it anyway. It was always soo stimulating to be able to duel someone with word. “You are a genius Ryder!” she told the young ghost, a sense of pride surging through her transparent form. “That is a splendid idea!! We should absolutely do that! Get the students more involved. We could hold the meetings here in the library...it would be perfect!” Agnes went on, ideas for it now coming to her as well. She could talk to Kiva about. Surely if a portrait could teach a class at the school, a ghostly advisor for a club wasn’t unheard of right?

"Nah, sometimes it’s the fault antiquarians if they're the ones that originally investigated things." Ryder told her, continuing with their original conversation. Agnes had to admit Ryder made a valid point. It would be the fault of the people who originally investigated such things regarding their inaccurate information. “That’s true enough,” she conceded the point to him. “Personally I would think that they would strive to be more accurate in their information, but what can ya do?” Agnes shook her head. The old ghost was at a loss. If people didn’t strive for better, how did they expect to be any better? It made her sad thinking about it in a way. "Mum wanted us to learn as many languages as possible. Dunno why, but she did. I'm usually better at reading or writing in a different language, then speaking in it, other than French of course." Agnes nodded her understanding on that sentiment. She had been fairly good at speaking French herself once upon a time. She could still speak a bit of it now, but she wasn’t as fluent with it as she used to be. “I know the feeling,” she told him simply.

Agnes grinned at Ryder’s happiness at the prospect of possibly getting new books for the Library he would enjoy. Agnes didn’t see why Sata wouldn’t agree to allowing such a thing since he went around leaving books out for Nancy to read, turning the pages for her when she was ready for him too. If the great brute was able to do that for her, why could he not procure more Mangie books (or whatever they were called) for Ryder? Agnes would see to it that the man did exactly that. “Don’t you worry Ryder. The big brute will do it...I’ll make sure of it,” she promised the younger ghost.

“You are a genius Ryder!” He just stared at the older ghost in awe for a second, a blank expression on his ghostly face. "Wait, what I do?" Ryder didn't mind being called a genius, but really, he had no idea what the heck he'd actually done. “That is a splendid idea!! We should absolutely do that! Get the students more involved. We could hold the meetings here in the library...it would be perfect!” Ryder listened to Agnes ramble on about how good the idea was, before he finally spoke up. "I was just joking...Uh there's no need to get too far ahead of ourselves." Although it would be interesting to see something like that actually happen, what would they do if a disagreement broke out? It wasn't like they had the physical power to hold anyone back.

"Antiquarians didn't really have the technology back then, they do predate Archeologists in Europe, after all." Yeah, sure some of them didn't cause much trouble, and could even be helpful. Although he couldn't really confirm or deny this as a true fact, to be honest he didn't really know that much about archeology other than the stuff he'd read in books, when he was bored. The things he did to distract himself, was outstanding, but there did seem to be a lot of waiting around when you were dead, and it only seemed to get worse for him when everything was super quiet like during the holidays.

Ryder just nodded at the comments about French, there wasn't really much detail required on that one, it was pretty self-explanatory.

"Make sure they're the good ones, we don't need any more rubbish." It was another joke, but it had a little less heart in it, honestly it didn't bother him which manga they got.

"Wait, what I do?" Ryder asked her, sounding a bit confused. “Your idea for a Ghost run Debate Club,” Agnes told the younger ghost. “It’s brilliant!” "I was just joking...Uh there's no need to get too far ahead of ourselves." Aggie waved her hand at him as she thought of the logistics and other details. “Oh pish-tosh. I think it was a brilliant idea and one we could totally make happen with the the right assistance,” Agnes told Ryder, her ghostly brain already rifling through a list of names for possible living advisors. Clearly they would need one of the professors to assist them to break up any disagreements, but the meetings would be run by her and Ryder (if he wished to participate). “I’m pretty sure we could get the Neanderthal to play referee if we needed him to,” Agnes popped off with. “Can you imagine any of the children misbehaving during the club meetings with his mug hanging around?” Agnes chuckled. “He might be a brute, but he has his uses.”

"Antiquarians didn't really have the technology back then, they do predate Archeologists in Europe, after all." Aggie couldn’t help nodding in agreement. Ryder was again correct. “Quite right Kiddo. It’s a shame they didn’t have the technology back then. Gotta start somewhere I suppose.” Agnes had to admit the boy was impressing her with his random knowledge. He would be an excellent asset for the Debate Club. "Make sure they're the good ones, we don't need any more rubbish." Agnes chuckled at the comment regarding the Manga. “Is that so?” she asked him playfully. “And what, my dear Ryder, would you consider the “Good” ones?” she asked him. Agnes had no clue what that sort of thing was. It wasn’t around when she was a child. She read some other rather wonderful works as a child, but nothing of the things children of this day and age did. They read and did the most unusual things nowadays. It boggled Agnes’ mind. She tried to read some of things the children were reading, but she really didn’t understand it. “Give me an idea of what you’d like to see and I’ll tell Sata,” she told Ryder. She would make sure the brute followed through. She’d pester him for days if she had to.

Ryder did kind of feel excited about the idea of the club, but he didn't want to see what would happen if the idea was turned down and not approved, he didn't really want to see Agnes down, if it didn't happen at all. "It's possible that we could get some people to make the advertising posters and stuff, I guess." That would likely be the best way that they could get the word out, along with talking to different students too, though it would be important to ensure that it didn't feel like they were pressuring anyone either, which in some cases would be hard because you didn't know how some people would react. "Or we could use a Swooping Evil or a memory charm to make them forget about what they were fighting about in the first place." He hit himself in the face with his ghostly hand, Ryder had no idea why the heck he'd said that. But it probably made an interesting reply to the idea of getting someone he was afraid of as an adviser for the club.

Ryder nodded his head in agreement about the idea of Antiquarians having to start somewhere, the only notable one he could remember was the one dude that dug up his garden, though he couldn't remember his name. "Hmm, I don't know like maybe, One Punch Man, Bleach, To Your Eternity, eh I can't think of anything else." He thought that the library already had manga like Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, Hunter X Hunter, Black Butler and many countless others, that he couldn't remember the name of. Ryder had grown up with different forms of entertainment including manga and anime, sure he'd read what some people would call 'proper' books, but it wasn't like he had to give up everything he liked before, just because he was dead now.

"It's possible that we could get some people to make the advertising posters and stuff, I guess.” Agnes nodded enthusiastically. “Exactly!! The Art Cub could be very helpful in that regard,” she agreed. “We would need to speak to one of the members about it, but I’m sure that shouldn’t be too difficult a task,” Aggie said to her younger counterpart. "Or we could use a Swooping Evil or a memory charm to make them forget about what they were fighting about in the first place." Agnes chuckled at Ryder smacking himself in the face for making the suggestion, but she appreciated the idea. It was actually a really good one. Only drawback she could see to it would be the fact that neither of them could perform the spells, what with being dead and all, but that didn’t mean the living advisor couldn’t. “That’s actually a fabulous idea,” she told him encouragingly. “It would definitely eliminate most, if not, all of the fighting. Especially if the poor dears can’t remember what they were fighting about to begin with.” It would really deal with a lot of problems if the students did try to fight with one another. That is, if the idea of sicking the Brute himself on them wasn’t deterent enough. “We’ll figure out the details soon. Better to have all the plans in place when it’s presented to the headmistress for approval anyway,” Agnes said, nodding her head. So much to do and she had nothing but time.

"Hmm, I don't know like maybe, One Punch Man, Bleach, To Your Eternity, eh I can't think of anything else." Ryder told her when she had asked him about what he would have considered to be “Suitable Manga”. Agnes looked at the younger ghost in utter confusion as his response perplexed her. She had no idea what any of those titles had to do with Japanese Manga, but if that was what the young ghost wanted, then she would see that he had it. Just because the poor kid was dead didn’t mean he shouldn’t still be a kid in most respects. Chuckling, Agnes shook her head at him. “Alright then. I’ll make sure the Neanderthal knows and we’ll see if he’ll be able to find those for you,” she told Ryder, shrugging a little. Agnes had no idea where the man might find the blasted things since they didn’t exist when she was young, but she was a little sure Sata might have some idea. She hoped so anyway.
