makes sense.

auntie laurel is trying to get raya to talk to her, so she makes different expressions during a photo op. for some reason raya brings up fleas.

laurel: what are fleas?

raya sunshine: they are bug creatures that bite you and suck your blood.

laurel: really? where can you find fleas?

raya sunshine: arcata.
