    Clothes and Shoes

    Post by Queenofinsanity6 on 27/02/11, 11:27 pm

    Lee wasn't entirely sure what she was expecting from the clothes that the Captain and the others were bringing them back, but it definitely wasn't the truly amazing outfit that he handed her when they all got back to the ship. Anything would have really been better than the prison uniform she'd been wearing for days. It was at this point rather dirty and she just felt disgusting, even without the ugliness of the thing.
    It felt so good to change into the clean clothes-and even better, they were gorgeous. This was exactly what she needed to feel more like herself. Good clothes. She was already itching to take her share and go purchase at least a small wardrobe for herself to replace the one she had lost. Now that she looked decent, she could.
    But first she wanted to go ask the Captain where he'd gotten the clothes, so that she could check out the same shops. She smoothed the line of her trousers carefully before heading over to knock on Weihan's door.

    The excitement he'd felt at getting out planet-side on Beaumonde hadn't lasted long. The place was overloaded with Blue Sun advertising and merchandise. It was the sort of thing he knew logically had always been that way, but on this trip it just felt like something was crawling under his skin. Shopping for clothes for the crew had provided a brief distraction, but once that errand was complete, he begged off from the plans he'd made with Athena and his sister and, once the purchases were delivered, had holed up in his room with one of the liberated bottles of whiskey.

    He was just filling his glass when he heard a knock at the door, and Lingling hopped out of her bed, wagging her tail.

    He wasn't really in the mood for company, but maybe he could shoo whoeever it was away quickly. he set the bottle down, picked up his whiskey, and strode over to open the door.

    "Yes?"

    It hit Lee almost immediately just how stylish Weihan was dressed, and once she did she was surprised that it'd taken her so long. She realized that she'd never seen him dressed less than perfectly, which was actually quite impressive considering he was on the run.
    "I just wanted to thank you for the clothes." She said with a smile, "They're perfect. I was about to head into town and shop for more, so I wanted to ask where you got these. That store would be a good place to start."

    He had to smile a little - he had been right about the colour, and the cut was as good as you could get without the model present.

    "Jahn. Most of yours came from Eglantine's, but the shoes are Vander Hias. They fit?"

    Lee's eyes lit up. "They fit beautifully. You have an eye for this. I'm impressed, really. It feels wonderful to be in proper clothes again." She was pleased to note the smile growing on his face. He'd looked rather cross when she knocked and quite aside from a good conversation it would simply be nice to cheer her captain up a bit.

    He sipped his drink. "Glad you approve - Forty-four looked at me like I had two heads before she'd even tried any of it on."

    In truth, the expedition had reminded him a little of shopping for Raquel, who'd occasionally sent him to find things for her to wear to openings when she was too stressed or busy getting her art organized. Much like the rest of the things he remembered from what he was already thinking of as his old life, it was a bittersweet memory. He took another sip.

    Lee laughed. "I imagine she's not used to the fashionable core worlder look." she said. "It's a shame, really. She and Patience would look good wearing nice clothes." She shrugged, eyed his drink and his expression. Probably best to keep the conversation in safe channels.
    "In any case, I'm impressed with what you managed to find. Maybe I'm just a pampered core girl but I wasn't expecting designer clothes this far out. Was it difficult?"

    Weihan smirked wryly. "They say you can find just about anything on Beaumonde - you just have to look a little harder it you want something other that Blue Sun Gǒu shǐ*." He scowled, the shrugged. "New Dunsmuir has a good district, of course, but it's small."

    "Good to know." Lee replied, making a mental note to check out New Dunsmuir. "I'll definitely give it a look. Have you been here before, then? I have to admit, I've been a lot of places but all decidedly Core planets. Now I kind of feel like I should have done more useful travelling back when it didn't matter as much."

    On another day, he would have been happy to chat fashion and shopping with the charming doctor, but he wasn't feeling very social, and Beaumonde had left a sour taste in his mouth. He forced a smile.

    "Athena knows the place better - why don't you check with her? I think she and Luk Mei Xiu were going to shuttle anyone who wanted to go back planetside, anyway."

    Lee nodded. "I'll go ask then, thanks."
    She glanced back to the glass in his hand, hesitated, then decided to speak up anyway. "I hope you feel better about whatever's bothering you soon." She told him, then hurried away before she had the chance to feel stupid if she got it wrong.

    Weihan followed her glance to his glass, and nodded as she turned. Once she was down the hall, he tossed the rest down his throat and turned back into his room. He'd forget about it soon enough, either way...
