"Nǐ can go to bed now, " Melody informed him as she herself went headed off to her room.

"Wǎn'ān, " he said only to receive no reply.

Flick was not asleep when he entered their shared room. That was no surprise seeing as the downtowner rarely slept more than three hours a night.

"Did ya like the movie thingy?" Flick asked, his tone slightly agitated.

"Which film are you referring to? Truth Tellers or the film I watched with Melody. Unfortunately, I do not know what it is called."

"The horror thingy. What did ya think of it?"
