YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles at Maeve when she comes into the shop; she's folding some shirts:: Did you enjoy your day off?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smiles back, nodding:: I guess you could say it was...eventful. How about you? Anything exciting happen while I was gone?
YarnKittymon: LB: Not really. Went to the late showing of a film with Jack after we closed. ::is still smiling, and the sparkle of a small diamond on Libby's left ring finger catches Maeve's eye::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks surprised when she catches sight of the ring, her mouth falling open slightly then once she's recovered, she smiles at Libby, clearly happy for her friend:: Oh! Libby! I'm so happy for you! ::hits her arm playfully:: And you were all worried he wouldnt commit. So when did it happen?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down at the shirts, still smiling:: It wasn't any big deal...he just brought it back from Gate Town last time he went out.
Maeve Owens: MV: I meant when did he propose!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::blushes a bit; softly, not looking at Maeve:: The 29th.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::her smile widens:: Awe, thats so neat. I'm happy for ya Libby. We should go celebrate.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up at Maeve again, grinning:: We should. How's tonight sound?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::grins back:: Its good for me. Have ya set a date yet?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: Hopefully before the year's up, but we haven't really talked about it yet. I don't know how big it's going to be, either; I'm not a little girl with dreams of a million-dollar wedding anymore...
Maeve Owens: MV: So you leave out the huge ice sculptures and the caged birds and the fifteen layer wedding cake. At least you've got the guy of your dreams right? It'll still be nice no matter how much you spend on it.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smiles warmly:: I didn't mean *that.* I meant, I'm not sure if we'll have bridesmaids.
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh, okay. So does that mean your not thinking about having it in the church or something?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::smirks:: We'll be in *a* church. Not *the* Church, but Jack's not Catholic so they wouldn't let us even if there was a priest in town. ::smirks:: I'm just saying you might not get to wear a frilly pink dress in front of all of Marquis.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::clutches her heart and pretends like she's dying:: Oh no! What cruelty!!! ::gags and dies::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks down at Maeve calmly, though she's smiling:: Oh, so you're dead now? Hm. Pity. ::gets back to folding shirts::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::lifts her head up then sticks her tongue out at Libby:: And she doesn't even care I've died of a broken heart over not getting to wear an ugly...err, I mean pretty... frilly pink thing. ::she gets up, brushing the dust from her clothes::
Maeve Owens: ((yeah i was gonna try to say that maybe her outfit has changed from her ragged brown skirt and white shirt but i failed miserably))
YarnKittymon: ((LOL; I didn't think she was wearing a ragged brown skirt anyway. ^^; And Libby would've made her wear presentable stuff what with Maeve working in a clothing store; she would want to get the point across, "Look how pretty you can be if you dress right," not "if you have natural beauty you can look gorgeous in rags" :D ))
Maeve Owens: ((yeah i figured that too... which what i was gonna try and do... heh.))
Maeve Owens: ((well not the last part. ;P ))
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: Well, I was going to buy you one for the funeral, if it's any consolation.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::wrinkles her nose:: In that case I'll just come back to haunt you.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: But it's hard to be frightened of someone in a puffy pink dress.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::smirks:: Oh, but you've never seen *me* in a puffy pink dress. ::tugs on a strand of her red hair:: And this isn't the only reason either. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs again:: We have that dress near the back, if you'd like to try it.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::shakes her head:: Nah, especially if you plan to sell it. It could get ugly.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins:: I'm not sure it'll sell anyway...but if you destroyed it I'd take the money it cost out of your check.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sticks her tongue out at her again:: You're mean. ::laughs::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::She pushes the door to Libby's shop open, her gray eyes sweeping across the clothes racks. She smiles when she sees Maeve and Libby. Picking up the skirt of her long blue dress, she walks towards the two, her thick black hair flowing behind her::: Hello!
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks up:: Welcome to Libby's--oh; Ciama! Good morning! How have you been?
Maeve Owens: CI: Things are looking up. Father is doing much better now. How are things here?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: If you were really interested, couldn't you have your sister check?
Maeve Owens: CI: Well, I could, or just try and peek into your future myself but I kind of feel more like a spy than a friend. ::laughs::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs too:: I guess I appreciate that, then. Did you come here to just check up on us in person, or were you looking for something in particular?
Maeve Owens: CI: ::she glances down to her long blue dress which looks a little out of date:: I thought perhaps I'd pick up a new wardrobe actually. Maybe try to appear a little more in style. Besides I still have to replace my favorite high heels. I'm down to three pairs. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: If you came and lived in town like a reasonable person you might not lose them quite so quickly, you know. ::walks over to a dress rack::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::laughs too:: Father wouldn't approve though. ::sighs:: I bet living in town is a lot more fun than out in the middle of nowhere. I mean look at the neat shops you have around here? ::pouts::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::flatly:: Yes, but one can only shop so much. ::smirks:: Or if lucky... never.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks back at Maeve:: No wonder you rarely earn a commission. ::looks back at the dress rack, picking out a rather unusual dress with an irregularly hemmed skirt that falls mid-calf; looks back at Ciama:: What do you think?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns, although she cant think of a reason why that statement isn't true::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::nods, looking excited:: Oh, its so pretty!
Maeve Owens: MV: ::sighs::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::offers Maeve an apologetic glance, but no more, and spends quite a while helping Ciama find clothes::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::seems to be lost in a whole new world and is really enjoying her shopping experience, having missed this simple pleasure in life for a very long time::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::gets caught up too, and doesn't worry how much it all must cost until after they've finished; hesitates when she tells Ciama the price, which is only a couple dollars more than Libby herself paid to buy the clothes and shoes::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::she frowns a little at the price, but then shrugs, smiling:: Ah, oh well. What else have I been saving this money for anyway? ::hands over the correct amount of cash::
YarnKittymon: LB: I gave you as big a discount as I could. It's a pity I couldn't give them to you free, but I think I'd lose the shop if I did that.
Maeve Owens: CI: ::laughs:: Oh, thats okay. I wouldn't think you could. Thanks for the discount though. ::smiles::
YarnKittymon: LB: So why didn't your siblings come along?
Maeve Owens: CI: Well, I'm pretty sure Edusa is looking after Father and Banrak was so intrigued by a street musician that I couldn't drag him away.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::laughs:: There's a concert tonight; you should come. Or maybe see the film in the theater. Have you ever seen a movie before?
Maeve Owens: CI: ::shakes her head:: No I haven't. Maybe I can talk Banrak into staying long enough to see one. That would be neat.
YarnKittymon: LB: You really should. I saw it last night; there's several songs. All the actors have German accents, though.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::frowns:: I wouldn't suggest taking a man to see *that* movie. They tend to get uncomfortable over risque photos and women in those situations.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::looks back at Maeve, a little surprised:: Jack didn't seem to mind.
Maeve Owens: MV: Isaac did. ::shakes her head::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::frowns:: Well, then perhaps I shouldn't suggest the movie to Banrak. Is there anything else showing?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::shakes her head:: But there's that concert; I'm sure your brother will love it, if he was enthralled by a guitarist. ::grins:: I'm sure they'll have dancing, too; you can wear one of those new dresses and have a dozen partners.
Maeve Owens: CI: ::nods; smiling:: Okay, I'll tell him about it. I'm sure he'll want to stay after I tell him about the music.
YarnKittymon: LB: I'd love to join you, but I haven't anyone to dance with, and besides, I promised Maeve we'd go out and have a party.
Maeve Owens: MV: What do you mean you have no one to dance with? Isn't that rock on your finger proof enough? ::grins::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::when Maeve mentions the rock she glances down at Libby's hand:: Oh my! How could I have not noticed? Are you getting married Libby?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods, smiling, though not as widely as she had been:: To Jack, of course. ::holds out her hand for Ciama to admire the ring:: But Jack's away on business for a couple days.
Maeve Owens: CI: Oh! How wonderful. Congratulations.
Maeve Owens: MV: ::looks confused:: Away on business?
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods to Ciama, smiling:: Thank you. ::looks back at Maeve, the smile fading somewhat:: He was promoted, so he's working on buying supplies for the tavern, in Gate Town and on the mainland.
Maeve Owens: MV: Oh. Well, thats pretty good for him then.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::nods, smiling at Maeve:: But if you'd rather take someone to the concert, I can keep myself entertained.
Maeve Owens: MV: No, I suggested we'd go and celebrate and celebrate is what we're going to go and do. ::grins::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::goes to put Ciama's new clothes in a couple bags, but hesitates:: Did you want to wear one today, while you're in town?
Maeve Owens: CI: ::nods:: Oh yes, that would be wonderful. ::smiles::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::hands her one of the dresses and waits while the young woman's in the changing room::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::she comes back out modeling her new favorite dress:: How does it look? ::grins::
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins:: I think you're beautiful, and it just makes a good thing better...but I'm hardly a partial judge. Maeve?
Maeve Owens: MV: ::nods:: Oh yes, definitely guaranteed to turn the head of a few young gentlemen.
YarnKittymon: LB: ::grins:: If you fell in love with a man in town and married him, your father couldn't stop you from living here.
Maeve Owens: CI: ::laughs:: Great! Thanks for your help.
YarnKittymon: LB: You're welcome. Come back soon...when you get the money saved, anyway. ::grins::
Maeve Owens: CI: ::grins:: Oh, I will. ::waves goodbye a she leaves the store::
Maeve Owens: MV: ::waves back::
