THE CAKE IS A LIE... er wait.  
[Looks down the row of rooms, barely resisting the pull of the companion cubes.

Stops at a new door. Pulls it open.]

... Miles. I think we hit the mother load.

[Cake. Rows upon rows upon shelves of cake. Right next to the companion cube room. Every darned flavour and type you could think of.]

Is tagging here okay with you, Kinky~? <3
[Miles is wandering around when he hears another voice say in a coveting voice, "German chocolate?" He peers inside to see that it's closet-man, who, for once, doesn't look like he wants to eat somebody. He looks like he's more interested in cake this time. He walks inside, happy to see somebody that he likes and recognizes, feeling quite a bit more cheerful than he did after last night--speaking with Prof was actually quite cathartic. Despite the fact that he ended up with more questions than answers...well, he can ask questions now.]

Hi. [He approaches the table.]

Tis fine <3
-He is a full 1/3 the way through the smallish cake by this point and doesn't appear as though he'll be flagging any time soon. He looks entirely too happy to be enjoying that particular kind of frosting specific to this type of cake, and it is quite possible that an actual 'mmm' escaped his lips at some point.-

-Startles slightly at the boy's greeting and looks at him with a fork sticking out of his mouth. He pulls it out and swallows, clearing his throat.-

Ah.

Good evening, Miles.

-With a faint grin, he waves a hand towards the shelves full of pastries.-

Would you care for some cake?

Oh good. ♥
[He glances over to the cake shelf. Oh, they had chocolate. And vanilla. And chocolate and vanilla. Oh, he loves cake. And he never gets to eat it except for on 'special occasions' and--no, Miles! You mustn't get distracted! You must ask questions of the utmost importance!]

Maybe later. [He sits on a stool opposite of Bluffles and carefully slides Franziska's letter out of his notebook and places it on the table.]

I was wondering if you could explain this.

Re: Oh good. ♥
-Pauses with another forkload of sweet halfway to his mouth. He sets it back down on the plate and picks up the letter.-

-Unable not to tease the boy just the once.-

Oho. A love note already? At your age?

Re: Oh good. ♥
[He frowns at the man, giving off an air that he thinks that this comment is very uncalled for, and quite frankly, very immature for a 'grown up' to say. Although adults do tend to like saying these types of thing from time to time. Miles decides that it makes them feel good about themselves.]

No. [He says this pointedly.] Read it. It's says it's from my sister. [He taps it.] But I don't have a sister.

Re: Oh good. ♥
-He recognizes the look and chuckles softly.-

Yes you do.

-Another bite of cake.-

Well, I do. You might, eventually.

Re: Oh good. ♥
[He stares at the piece of paper almost accusingly before looking back at at Bluffles.]

Okay. But her name is Franziska von Karma, not Franziska Edgeworth. [He closes his eyes and begins counting off on his fingers.]

One of the older mes told me that his brother is Phoenix now, because...um...Father... [He shakes his head and determinedly keeps on plowing along.] But he's also a defense attorney, and you're a prosecutor. And if your sister is Franziska von Karma, then...

Then...

[...Oh, that couldn't be right. He looks at Bluffles accusingly, demanding that he explain this inaccuracy immediately.]

Re: Oh good. ♥
-Catches the bit about their father and frowns. So someone told the boy...-

-He pushes the cake to one side and folds his hands, sighing.-

You've heard about... what happens to some of our Fathers, then.

-How best to obscure the truth while not leaving anything out? He thinks very hard for some time.-

Well. In their universe, Wright's family adopted us. In mine, I was adopted by--by someone else. Franziska Von Karma was his daughter.

Re: Oh good. ♥
...Oh. [So far, all three Edgeworths he has met, only two of which whom he trusts, have had their Father...He doesn't even want to think about.]

But von Karma is her name. I only know one other person with the name von Karma.

[He looks at Bluffles meaningfully.]

Re: Oh good. ♥
-He can't quite meet the boy's eyes.-

Then I assume you are clever enough to draw your own conclusions.

-A sigh.-

I remind you that none of these futures are definite.

Re: Oh good. ♥
...W-well... [He drums his knuckles on the table, trying to keep his composure. He bites his lip.] Maybe it's not for sure, but...but it might happen. Right?

Re: Oh good. ♥
-He is very aware of where this conversation is about to go and steels himself. This is going to be hard. What will he say?-

-Focusing on it one moment at a time.-

It... might.

-Pointedly.-

You might also sprout wings and an extra eye.

Re: Oh good. ♥
No I won't. That's impossible. Not even anybody here has those.

[He rests his chin on his fists.]

But... [But Father dying is entirely too possible. What he needs to find out is who caused the death of Father in each of the worlds, and the one that seems to come up most often..

...Well, Miles isn't sure what he'll do from there, but he has to do something.]

Who did it? In your world, I mean, because might not happen in mine.

Re: Oh good. ♥
-Perfectly honest.-

A monster.

-It pains him to think about this, and he can't tell the boy the name--there was no guaranteeing what young Miles would think of his being adopted by the same man who...-

A vile, heartless, deceitful monster.

Re: Oh good. ♥
[He frowns at that. He may be young, but he won't fall for the monster ploy.] There are no such things as monsters. If you... [He thinks.] If you said that in a courtroom, the judge would laugh at you.

[He slams his hands on the table in an accurate representation of what he's seen others doing.]

I asked who, not what.

[He's scared of hearing the answer, he really is. But he wants to become an attorney, and he can't be afraid of the truth. That, coupled with the fear of losing his father, is really the only thing that keeps him asking.]
