Siobhan watched as a group came up and asked a few questions about her being the one to put this together. Siobhan smiled as the blue haired girl was dragging a blonde man. He had to be her brother. They were adorable. Siobhan smiled as the blue haired girl talked then about to answer her a burnette man also chimed in. She smiled at them and leaned forward. “Well I’m not the one that put this together. I just did the paintings. You guys have yet to see all the other paintings. Lexi put all this together at the last minute practically. Glad you’re all enjoying the show.”
Siobhan introduced Paige and Milo to the group and they chatted for a minute as Xia walked up. Siobhan put on a very neutral demeanor. It was just Xia by herself. She asked me out to lunch? And she’s a massage therapist? Siobhan smiled at Xia knowing that they’d get along just fine and nodded and waived as she walked off with a genuine smile.
Lexi came and got Siobhan later and as she was leaving she gave Paige a hug touching Milo on the arm in a sister-like gesture. About five minutes after that guests were told that the full unveiling would begin. The collection seemed to follow a pattern starting with the bridges. The St. Alexus Bridge then Matthews Bridge. There was Light Lane, The Coffee Pot, Downtown, Theatre. A quaint picture of Riverside, a Church, the University, the Library. The next set were more recent she had a painting of City Hall, a sunny day at the Park and Another Park. Ironically she also had a picture of this Manor. Her views were spectacular like the Sunset View. Rain took on a romantic quality as well as Trains. Finally a night time CIty View rounded out the collection. Siobhan watched as people wandered around the paintings. Most noticed that the painting of Apex Designs was the only one with people in it and was not for sale.
As the bidding was taking place and people were mingling Siobhan caught Lexi’s eye and nodded as she went over to Paige and Milo. She found them easily enough and said her goodbyes. She texted Joel one word DONE. Then she wrapped up his painting and informed the valet that he’d be coming for her in a few minutes.
