... I'm not sure where this was directed at but I feel as if it was toward my last two sentences so I'll further explain. What I meant by "minor eye tricks" was nothing like that. Hmm, I guess I should've entirely reworded that. Just like making him see small (or bigger) things that aren't there such as him grabbing for something, like his sword, but Ari has masqueraded it as a slithering snake for two seconds. Stuff like that.
I think that's perfectly fine. Ari wouldn't do it in a way that's obvious but just make up some excuse as to why Camellia should go do something or come with her right now.
