Lady Penny Pembrook

[OP - F22] Star-Crossed Gala

Recommended Posts

Yuki cleared her throat and folded her arms against her chest once again. Another deep breath escaped her lungs. "I just like to have a positive mental attitude towards anything I do. If I went into everything without keeping my chin up I'd drown in my own self-loathing I guess. Hearing someone agree with and all around just understand your situation is encouraging is all. So whether or not you accept my thanks for helping my spirit, I'm still glad I talked with you about it."

She looked over at the tent's entrance once again, wondering if she would have time to incorporate her own ideas, but something told her she was probably too late for that now.

"Well, I hope you enjoy it no matter what it is. I know I would. It would be awesome to have your own quest idea in a video game like this. What kind of ideas did you apply with?"

"Violet..." he said with a smile.  It felt good to call her that.  "It sounds like the party's winding down sooner rather than later.  So how about we stay here and watch the night sky until the sun comes up tonight.  It, um, it would be nice to just share some time together."

He slid his way over to Violet/Dazia's side and put his arm around her shoulder.  Honestly, he wasn't sure what he should be doing... but they were past that point right now.  They had said those words, and he didn't regret it at all.  He felt his own stresses melting away as well, just feeling her body next to his own.  She was a friend, someone he could trust no matter what.  Someone he wanted to protect.  And maybe something more.

He held Violet close, the fireflies lighting up the sky and dancing across each of their gazes, as the quiet sounds of night covered up all else.

A positive attitude....

It was a stark difference to Mari, who often looked at things in a pessimistic or realistic light. The voices in her head didn't really help either - she knew it was just the self doubt and guilt that plagued her. She wasn't insane - she didn't think they were demon kings or alternate personalities. No, these were just her own dark thoughts. Nothing more, nothing less. 

"Yeh..." Mari said quietly. "I know all too well the feeling of drowning in that sort of thing...." She shifted her gaze to the path that lead outside, not because she was expecting anyone anymore, but because it was outside - away from the people and the crowds. "I've... only recently come back from a self imposed isolation. It wasn't a good time for me, and I'm still...trying to readjust to things - but I think it admirable you are able to keep such a positive outlook."

Yuki asked Mari what her submission was for the auction, Mari shifted her gaze back to the pink haired woman in front of her, "Ah, now, now Yuki." Mari chastised. "If I told you, that'd be an unfair disadvantage - you'll just have to wait and see."

Krysta set down the glass when Vigilon warned her, and looked at it as if it was contaminated...which, honestly, it kind of was. Maybe next time the "Dinkster" could find a more...tolerable way to be crazy. Krysta would suggest to Vigilon that they dance, since there was a dance floor here at the Gala. "Sure, why not?" He said with a smile. He would look over to an area of the dance floor that was relatively clear of any leaked fruit juices, and he brought Krysta with him as he walked over there. Once they were at the specified area of the dance floor, Vigilon remembered the day that both he and Krysta confessed their love to each other...maybe he could reference it here, too, since this was a formal event, after all. He would bow, then offer to take her hand. "Lady Verity, may I have this dance?"

Surely, Krysta would get the reference.

Vigilon agreed to dance with Krysta, and would lead her over to a good spot on the dance floor to do so. He would then bow, and would say something that Krysta hadn't heard in a while...

"Lady Verity, may I have this dance?"

Krysta smiled endearingly, remembering the day the relationship between her and Vigilon first bloomed... She would curtsy as she replied. "Why, of course." She would allow him to take her hand, and the two would begin to dance. It was wonderful to remember, that day she never wanted to forget. Now that all the problematic moments were gone, she could finally relax...spending time with Vigilon. At the current moment, she didn't want to focus on anything else but the time she could spend with her boyfriend. She had fairly enough of the chaos that had transpired earlier. "Well, it's just the two of us again." She noted, in terms of the current situation and the fact that she was certain no one was paying any attention to them, and were focused on someone else. "Is there anything on your mind that you wish to say?"

Vigilon smiled at Krysta's reply, as she would give the same response as she did that day. She curtsied as she agreed. Vigilon would take her hand, and the two would begin to slow dance. Finally, peace at last... Maybe next time, Veriost would behave, and there wouldn't have to be an embarrassing bunch of scenes he'd end up being involved in. Speaking of which, he'd need to  have a talk with the small white frost dragon when this was over... She seemed to be behaving now, so maybe it wouldn't take as long as he thought it might.

To Vigilon, this began to feel like that day again...but this time, the dance felt better. He knew his Girlfriend much better than when he first confessed to her that he had a crush on her...and because of that, he loved her way more. He loved her personality, her heart, her voice, her appearance...everything. ...So why did he feel like there was something missing?

Oh, that's right...he had something in his inventory. Something he'd originally been saving for the anniversary of their relationship...he considered taking it out, but...no. He didn't know if she was ready for that, he wasn't even prepared himself. He would need to wait just a little longer, at least. He would need to be able to afford what he would need for such a thing...he wanted her to be happy...not to mention that a moment like this, as wonderful as it was, it couldn't be done, after all that's happened here, anyway.

Krysta asked Vigilon if there was anything on his mind. "I...I probably have to go on an extra trip or two, but...I know I can bring you along for some of them." He said with a smile. "There's so much we still have yet to do, and I'd love to do more things with you, Jewel."  Hopefully, this would be a dance he wouldn't forget either. However...

Showing her the ring would have to wait.

There definitely seemed to be something on Vigilon's mind. He seemed to be...worried. The expression he had, Krysta had seen it before with others she had been in a conversation with during certain moments when they were spoken to by those they loved...perhaps it was simply just uncertainty. "Alex...forgive me for my assumption, but there's no need to be worried about the future, if that's what's on your mind...I know for a fact that I'd love to be with you in reality...you even revealed to me where you lived, which, such a funny coincidence, is my home town as well! But at least we are still together...and I will love you always." She reassured him. Vigilon admitted that there was so much he still wanted to do with her. "Alex, if it's my life you worry about so, I can simply keep teleport crystals on hand, you shan't have to worry again." She reassured him once more. Krysta would then simply focus on her boyfriend, dancing with him, hopefully for the rest of the event.

She would figure out exactly what had him worried, in time.

With a final burst of horns and cry of bow on strings, the band struck their final note. There was a splattering of applause, and the musicians afforded themselves a quick bow before beginning the break-down process. "I suppose that's my cue," Lady Penny Pembrook declared. She uncrossed her legs, then stood from the comfy couch she'd been seated upon. On either side of her, a male suitor shifted back to allow the woman more space to move. Though the night had not gone quite as she had envisioned it, she surely could not call it a failure. There was a silver lining, and their names were Reginald and Rupert.

The smart click of heels on a well-used dancefloor carried Lady Pembrook to the stage. The band ceased their movement, respectfully falling silent as the NPC approached the microphone. She wrapped her slim fingers around the base, leaned in, and crisply cleared her throat. Though it took a moment, the partygoers finally quieted as well. "I wish to thank you all for attending my gala," the aristocrat began. "It was an interesting evening, to say the least." Lady Pembrook pursed her lips, moving to pat her still-perfect hair before continuing. "You have fifteen minutes to leave, and then my guards shall escort you out." With a quick flash of a smile, the quirky woman concluded with, "Buh-bye now." 

This concludes the Star-Crossed Gala.
