"Thank you!" Anastasia called back, still trying to get the voice right. She turned back to the dispensers, looking for one labelled ice. She felt a little silly for asking - now that she had it explained to her, it all seemed very obvious. Well, better to ask than to just try to use it blindly and blow up the whole store or something.

She filled up a container with dust - it really was very simple - and brought it to the counter. She paused for a moment after placing it on the counter, feigning confusion.

"Err, your face seems really familiar, have I seen you before somewhere? Hmm... Maybe in an ad or something?" She asked, purposely moving her face closer, pretending to study Mia's face carefully.

Having ignored everything happening around her as well as she possibly could, Anna counted her Dust phials - yep, everything was there - before turning away from the dispensers and heading towards where she remembered the checkout counter was. However, a brief pulse of her semblance revealed that there was already somebody there, so she patiently stood at the end of the counter, establishing the beginning of a line.

...Wait. She pulsed her semblance again, then started using her second stage continuously. Alrighty, then. Either the person who'd welcomed her had a twin, or this was one extremely rare occurence of a near-perfect lookalike.

Mia instinctively nodded and smiled to Fake Mia's gratitude, then silently watched the imposter collect some dust as she returned to the checkout counter.

When Fake Mia came up to the counter, Mia raised an eyebrow in anticipation of the following conversation. She took a mental note of Anna following up and waiting in line before directing her attention to her double. "I apologize, but it's much too early for these shenanigans. But yes, you've probably seen me before. My name is Mia Brightspear and I run this shop." She quickly rung Fake Mia's dust cannister up and gave the total cost, wanting to be done with this conversation. But then she had a thought. Her register IDs people when they purchase goods from her store, to ensure they are a student or faculty member. Which means it should be easy to figure out who Fake Mia is as soon as she swipes her Scroll. She lightly motioned toward the scanner, expecting Fake Mia to pass her Scroll over it.




There was this one time where Mia made the world's largest waffle. And then Waffle ate it. At least, in his dreams he did. And she did. It is a recurring dream for Waffle, and if he were capable of lucid dreaming, it would likely be the only thing he ever dreamt of. Waffle gave a bear sigh and then checked his surroundings, deciding the best course of action was to not attempt to enter through the front door. He took up his post just to the left of the door, sitting down and then scratching his neck for a few moments out of boredom.

"Shenanigans? Whatever do you mean?" Fake Mia asked, a little too innocently as she swiped her Scroll across the scanner. Unfortunately for her, she had no idea that the register would display her identity, otherwise she probably would have covered up the display with an illusion. She hummed quietly to herself as she tried to think of what she could do next with this little joke, twirling her fake illusion hair with her real fingers. It was a fun little focus exercise for her.

"Yes, Shenanigans. With your trickery and such!" Mia kept her eye on the register screen when Fake Mia swiped it. She read the name silently, and it dawned on her, though a little too slowly. She recognized the name. It was definitely someone that Kirkka told her about... someone of mild importance... that was employed at Beacon... and... they did stuff...

Finally, she managed to recall some useful information. It was some kind of semblance that can modify her appearance, obviously. It was familiar enough to her that she remembered enough. 

Disregarding that for a moment, she refocused herself and went back to customer service mode, smiling and bowing slightly as she thanked Fake Mia. "Well, thank you for stopping by! Please come again!" She waved at Anna who was standing patiently in line, hoping the copycat will get the hint and get out of the way.
