Life was not always fair to people, for those like Zerita this line was true in every sense. Living off the road, constantly running, and never bein able to buy the things she wanted. Right now she stood in front of a dress shop, in the window a mannequin wore a nice black evening gown. Now Zerita was not a dress person, but she knew if the school had an event she would need to dress up. Sadly the price of the dress was well above her price range right now, and she knew by the time that she could afford the dress it would be long gone. She could steal it she was good at that, but she didn't like doing that unless she had to, and a nice dress really wasn't on the top of her necessities. One couldn't eat a dress after all.

"Wow, this really is a problem." her words came with the tone of disappointment coating them. Weakness was not something that should be shown, but Zerita could not help but show her weakness by gushing over the dress. As hard and cold as someone could go they still had tenedencies of their former selves, Zerita's being her more feminine side. But who wouldn't love this dress? It's long flowing fabric that shined in the light, the way it would hug anyone's figure, and it the way it cut down in the front to show a bit of cleavage and the opening along the left leg's side. A perfect dress it was indeed.

It wasn't unlike Aoi to notice when people acted out of the ordinary. School bag slung over her shoulder with her uniform shirt no longer tucked in, over a bluish gray plaid, she looked like she had just walked out of the school. In fact she had. There was nothing better than paying a visit to the mall on the way back from class. There was a particular store that had caught her eye and she didn't want to leave without visiting it.

She paused, a fragile figure catching her eyes. The young woman stood in front of a glass case, staring at the clothes the mannequin wore. Aoi felt her curiosity peak and she couldn't help but amble on over to stare over the girls shoulder. The dress was an elegant evening gown, cut from soft silks and fitted so that it even brought out the bust on the mannequin as well as her slender hips.

"Eee, why staring so intent Hime? It's not going to run away, I promise," she teased with a smile.

For a moment she imagined having talked to the wrong girl and hoped inside that the girl before her had a sense of humor or a not-so-delicate personality. All she needed to do was make a pretty girl like this one cry and she would be devastated for weeks.

Crying was not something she did anymore, for as she would say those wells dried up years ago. The only ways this girl could upset her was by one getting into her personal space, two referring to things that were not her business, and three talking familiar with her. With a click of her heels she turned around to face whoever it was that was behind her. Her face happened to be red, oh how ones body would fail them. "Do not talk as if you know me Miss. I am but looking at this dress for as long as I can because I can not buy it. Not that that is really any of your business." Normally she would have threatened a person for such an intrusion, but sadly the dress had her all out of sorts, that and the public setting did not make it that safe to do such a thing.

"Now if you do not mind, I think I will be going, now that you have ruined the little bit of fun I was having today." Obviously she wasn't a rich girl or she could have afforded this dress so the only reason for one to act so distant from people, would of course be whatever happened during their up bringing. "Good bye." her words came calmly as she turned to walk away, but only succeeded in turning around to face the dress again. It really would have looked nice on her. But why did it have suck power over her mind? That part really confused her, perhaps it was the fact that she never got things like this when she was younger, or maybe it was just that fact that it was the most beautiful of dresses.

OOC: Of course I was happy to see that you posted to my thread.

Those harsh words would have cut through anyone else like razors but all Aoi could do was stare in disbelief. Had the girl even realized that she was just joking? Sensitive personality affirmed. Aoi felt a certain sort of remorse fill her as the girl walked off, of course she wouldn't let things end on such a sour note.

"Nee! Wait wait! I was just kidding," she ran after the girl, school bag not even weighing her down despite the amount of books she had placed in it this morning.

She made a habit not to touch the girl, who knew what other sensitivities she had? Aoi huffed slightly, this girl sure could walk fast! It wasn't that Aoi was out of shape but rather she was surprised by the cold-heartedness that the girl had exhibited. Was it something she had said? Black hair poked out of her pony tail.

"I'm sorry, I didn't mean to offend you I was only teasing," she paused, "can I make it up to you?" Hope glittered in the older girls eyes as she hoped she hadn't hurt this girl.

Zerita stopped in her footsteps, and looked at her follower. "Apology excepted though as a point of manners, you should really not tease with someone unless you know who it is you are talking to. I should apologize as well I suppose for blowing up at you. So I am sorry, I am normally not like that." Was she a cold person? Very much so. Was she the type to let her feelings get the btter of her? Not really. So she was angry with herself for letting suc ha stupid thing happen to her. Maybe it was the dress that had her all flustered that made her go out of control.

"I bet that dress will be gone by tomorrow." She had no idea that she was not just thinking this, but saying it aloud for the world to hear her thoughts. Zerita would have to discipline herself for letting the events that have already happened today happen. The past is not something that can be changed but one cane force oneself to learn from the past to help their future. One of the many lessons taught by her mentor Riny, and had Riny been here she would have made sure Zerita learned to not let herself lose control especially not over something as silly as a dress.

"Now I think I should be on my way. Many things to accomplish today." Ok that was a lie she had nothing, no jobs to do, no things to fix with herr newly appointed tree home, and nothing to add to her false school records. She was free for the day which is why she was at the mall, something she was regretting now. For several reasons that she did not want to go into.

Aoi was unsure of how to handle this girl. She wasn't like most of the girls that the young woman had known. There was something in her nature that was very reserved and almost mysterious, if Aoi had been sure that this girl wasn't going to get upset again she might have asked more questions. Still, Aoi wanted to make it up to her for upsetting her.

"Oi, where are you going?" she called after her, standing in her spot like a lost kitten.

People moved around her but she kept her focus on the girl in front of her. The smell of a noodle shop made her mouth water and her mind ran away with an idea. She had to make it up to this girl or Aoi was sure she'd spend the next three days brooding and so wouldn't the girl.

"Please," Aoi called, "let me make it up to you by buying you dinner." The offer was on the table, wether the reserved girl took it or not Aoi couldn't be sure.

Her mind was not in the right place on this day, but still she knew when she was annoyed, and Aoi seemed to be annoying her her a lot. "I do not go to places with people I do not know. Besides I am not even hungry." Her stomach chose that very time to rumble to prove she was a liar. Stomach you will pay for your betrayal of me. But for now you will be off the hook Of course sh ereally couldn't do anything to her stomach that was worse than she was already doing. Constantly feeding it with nothing but leaves and lizards, and that ilk. She would need to eat something real, but she couldn't go with this person it sounded too much like a date to her.

"In any case I will have to decline your offer for you see. I do not need people thinking I am on a date with someone else. That would show weakness." To her showing affection was a weakness, not something that Riny had drilled into her something she had drilled into herself. Affection lead to pain and pain shows weakness to an opponent thus any affection should be tossed away as soon as possible. Riny taught her many things, but after her death Zerita had to teach herself many things. One of them being that Affection really was bad, loosing Riny was what drove her to this conclusion.

Aoi found herself in a pickle. This girl would've gotten on her nerves if she didn't realize that she was just trying to avoid Aoi's company.

Fair enough, most people didn't like dinning with complete strangers, and maybe some people didn't even want free noodles. But Aoi wasn't about to give up until the girl ran away. An apology needed to be paid in full, not just flattering sentiments.

Why didn't I go home instead of coming to the mall? She sulked.

Fortunately the girl's stomach rumbled almost immediately after the mention of food had been brought up. Aoi felt her spirits jump for joy and she almost went HAH but then realized this girl was not the person to be impulsive around.

"See, you're hungry!" she protested as the girl began to walk away, once again.

It was a reoccurring theme by this time. In fact Aoi would be shocked if the girl didn't try to run away. Was her company really that bad? She wondered if she should go to the mirror to check her face for any sort of markers that would condemn her to being creepy or weird or ugly or SOMETHING.

"Please, i'll buy the noodles for you! You don't even have to stand with me, just let me make it up to you," she sighed, "i'm not the type of person to upset a lady and then not make her feel better!"

Last resort, she was out of lifelines after this one. If it didn't work Aoi was going to brood. A LOT.

Zerita silently cursed, her stomach being in big toruble when they got home to her tree. "Yes my body wants real food, I want that dress back there, all things are wants that I can deal without. Leaves fill me up all the same, so I do not need the luxuries that other people so happily enjoy. besides if I had real food now my body would just crave more, thus it would be a bad idea to do such a thing." She didn't eat school lunch either, but that was for different reasons. If she had she would have to say who she was, and that would give the school another chance to find out who she was.

She sweatdropped as the girl continued her assault. Really now I am not getting out of this am I? Well fine I guess it would not hurt anything. Besides it is just another job I am being paid to go to dinner with someone or at least that is how I see it It was the only comforting thought that she currently had at this point in time. Aoi didn't even seem like she would hurt Zerita anyway so it was safe.

"Fine I will accompany you, but I refuse to sit away that would be rude." she couldn't believe she said this, but that was the least of her problems. She would need to make sure no one thought they were dating she could not handle that right now. "My name is Zerita by the way, it is well a pleasure I suppose to make you acquintence." She could not go to dinner without knowing the other girl's name after all so introductions were in order. "And one joke about us dating in any way shape or form, and I will be out of there faster than you can blink."

"I'm Aoi and I promise i'll keep my jokes to myself," she grinned, feeling relieved that she was given a chance to make the girl feel better.

Her eyes moved to look over the girl, who seemed to be very unfound of people in particular. Some people had guards up because they didn't want to get hurt or let people in because they were afraid of being let down or betrayed. Aoi figured that her newly made acquaintance fell under one of these categories...or maybe she was just a delicate person?

"So then, what do you want to eat?" she scoured, their only options seemed to be noodles or a mock-chinese restaurant.

If she had enough money to afford and expensive dress like that, Aoi would've bough it for her. Most people consider it bad to spend most of your money on gifts for people you don't know that well or when they don't have any special occasion, but Aoi knew that small things mattered. Very much so.

In fact the only things that kept people going in the long run were the small things.

((OOC: Apologies on the lateness, vacation, no internet, the usual excuses only this time they're real. Hopefully this is a good post, Zerita is a tough girl to get on the good side of =) ))
