"The island does have a police force and as you know, bad guys come in many forms. Also, you could train to be a scout. They rescue and bring those in need to the island so that they are safe, and can live safely. There is also security needed on the space station," she explained as a waitress refilled her cup with hot coffee.

"You could always put your skills to good work here on MCI," Ivana pointed out, "You don't need to retire if you don't want to."

A scout? "That sounds like an interesting idea, to be a scout. I assume there are demons out the island that are hunted even though they have done nothing wrong, I could help them reach us that way. Not sure if I could be of use in the Space Station.", those were interesting ideas she could not disregard, "I can see my mother supporting me in those."

"Scouts are very important people to many here on the island," Ivana stated with a nod, "They have helped so many people find their ways out of bad situations. I actually thought about being one myself many years ago, but fire fighting has always been my true calling," the dragoness confessed.

"If it's worth anything, I think you would be a great scout," she said with a warm smile.

"Really? You are so natural at fire fighting that I couldn't tell.", Basté genuinely looked surprised, before another long sip of coffee. The idea of scouting for others like them and bring to a place where they can be themselves... "I should try meeting up with scouts someday, see what they are like and what stories they can share about their duty. Should give me a really good idea of what to expect."

Ivana just shrugged a little at their observation and grinned. Many were surprised at her life choices, even her own mother had been, so she was used to it. "Scouting seemed exciting, what can I say?" she laughed.

"There are a few scouts that are always willing to talk to new recruits, or people who are interested,@ she explained. "I am sure they even have somebody at the school that can guide you if you were really interested."

"Seemed like a tough choice for you to make back then.", Basté imagined herself in Ivana's position, after all she is kinda there at this point. But being adventurous and eager to help any in and out the island has led her to lean towards becoming a scout, plus there was a chance that she would wind up in places marked on her map. "I wouldn't be surprised if there is somebody there to guide me into it, but I'd be surprised if they knew of my interest beforehand."

"In the end, it was an easy choice to make," Ivana confessed. "I became a volunteer firefighter over a century and a half ago, and when given the opportunity to do it professionally, well, I couldn't pass the opportunity up."

Ivana nodded, "That might be true, but it's true for everyone too. I'd say just think about it for a while, and when you are ready, book an appointment to talk to one of the scouts at the school. Then you can ask your questions, and see if it's something you might want to pursue."

"A century... And a half...?", sure, Basté knew to expect the unexpected, but how old could people in here be?! She dwelt into that for a moment, trying to guess what Ivana was. But maybe should be best not to question. But she was right, thinking about it for a moment was a good idea. "Yes, I will give it some thought then. Maybe, who knows, I'll vouch for volunteer fire fighting too, after all it is exciting as well."

"I am a dragon," she informed Bastet with a warm laugh when the younger woman seemed quite surprised by how long she had been working as a firefighter. "I started out as a water bearer back in the 1800s," she explained.

"That's good to hear," Ivana said when Bastet told her she'd give it some thought, and flashing her a grin when she said she'd consider firefighting also.

"Just remember, firefighting is more than just heading into burning buildings and saving people. It's also about learning which substances that burn the fastest, structures of buildings, finding alternative ways to deal with a situation, CPR, training daily, drills..." she told her, her tone teasing but also serious. Firefighting was a fairly complex job, more than most people knew.

Basté was talking to a dragon. That genuinely came as a surprise, one she was content with. "Ah, my father told me some of those too. And every now and then he was checking the house's structural integrity subconsciously and fixing any risk without thinking much on it. Mom eventually took on managing the house herself, having braved time herself to find her loved one made it somewhat easy for her to adjust to changes in her life without letting it drag her down. Nobody would say she still kisses his picture before going to sleep, if they saw her."
