Marinalia Romus Olympus "Mali" & Victoria Darya Romus "Vika"
Swan songs to Hesphestus Manor Art show . Saturday Evening . Park View district .
Marinalia, Swan songs with Xia, Ethan, Reya, Marcus and more.
The rest of the swan songs evening went abit awkward after Marcus got turned down pretty brutally and cast a sympathetic eye to Marcus, though she toned herself a alittle down round Xia but discreetly kept a foot close or held her hand. She needed the reasurnece in swan songs, it was comforting and despite a peering realexed and social. Her eyes betrayed her vulnerability. As she was driving Marinalia refused everything but one shot, and was fairly easy going round Ethan whom she seemed to think might not be quite the stereotype she expected for a rock star.
The performance was... Pretty nerve racking but felt good for it in a strange way even if she might end up curled up that night with emotional overload. Some scars where too deep for Marinalia to force under for long. Though she would have her bad back to herself again that night, both good and bad. the goodbye kiss did leave her a rather happy lady though driving home.
... Marinalia. Wensday to saturday
Marinalia had a busy few days, and the Manor had been alot busier than before the art show teams started to set up there things, luckily they had the upper floors to themselves and they where still calm and keeping the upper door locked was handy way to makesure no one wandered anywhere they where not Ment to be. The 3rd floor was so far away that would quiet even if they worked over night, somthing she had requested they only do if needed. It was a home first, not a vennues and they where protective about there sanctuary.
Xia had been a nice distraction from things, they kept up via text mostly but managed to meet up for lunch together and enjoyed her random conversations with the cheerful Island girl. That distraction had taken her mind off the meeting. She had agreed to a somewhat truce, but that was... Even that had caused a small disagreement that took time to relsove that night. Why could it not have been any other artist? Still, a propper "date" ish Saturday night and after Ethans little nugget, well why hide what made her happy? Joel might have a suprise if he attended, Sio too... She never mentioned Xia, or her well, after all her bad luck with guys lately, maybe this one would turn out alright?
Her work was one thing that she loved and once the airport was open again Marinalia was alert but normally could relax abit once they got a alittle further out on the loops. There was less traffic though the inner city flight lesson had resulted in a few times she needed to take the controls, however for a first lesson in the city centre they did not do too bad. That section of the test they definitely would need a few more lessons.
Friday afternoon was a off as the helicopter was in for maintenance, paperwork was up to date and most of the department had taken a early firday. Unlike normal airports they worked odd hours, but not constant. There never was ernough students and they alternated alot as many where in diffrent phases such a day, night, dawn, dusk and other aspects of the job. Now she had chance, well riding through the Atlas park, a gentle trot as the horse took a alittle easing out on the pathway before checking the map and with a quick change of pace began to pick up the pace, jumping a few logs as long blonde hair bounced behind her and quickly veered her mount through the woods and past a few Suprised hikers when a woman and horse bounded down a stream and jumped the bank before heading back. She loved doing abit more cross country and wild riding than just the trails...
... Victoria, Thursday to saturday
Things where abit quieter for Victoria work was normal, but the meeting was certainly not Normal and why did it have to be Siobhan? Anyone but that damned red head. That after she had been abit annoyed at work, Maria had to talk with them later and it had taken her abit of wine that late afternoon to relax after. Still she was feeling... A alittle off, probbly just the cure. It happened alot as it was experimental. She kept a diary of things as part of what they asked though.
Ethan went well, that and a evening of rather active stress relase was definitely a good distraction to her problems in Thursday evening even though she really really was not feeling like work after that "entertainment". Someone did notice her slight smirk in the morning, her work mates teased her somewhat, but she never really revealed the name of her "boyfriend" so they claimed, they where more... Well not friends but definitely not quite a couple yet, just a vauge tall, blonde, handsome, and musical. She really did not want the shit from media, or fan girls. Though that did start a betting pool if it was someone in the company.
Victoria was leaning back on bed after trying to make sense of the strange facts she had found about. Now Marinalia had given her a Joel riddle with Siobhan and was trying to pick together the whole... Problem she seemed to think was there. Only it is as not really one, personally she did not quite exactly think the Ethan Story was perfect, but it did have a few parts that made sense. There is as a story there maybe but maybe not exactly that particular version... Least it distracted her from thr coming art event on tommrow evening.
... Marinalia dress
Marinalia was rather apprehensive as the ground floor, now gallery was finished. Turning in a mirrored wardrobe, wearing the same white and gold gown from the gala, this dress needed a happy memory or she never wear it. A abit of help from Victoria to get it to look right, it was difficult but once on... Worth it. Full lengh and white and gold Greeken design, entirely backless with a high slit to her thigh on side, it was not conservative but it did look very nice, plus as she was not leaving home... No coats, taxis or so.
Finding a pair of lower metalic coloured heals and picking instead her more simple but stylish silver nicklace of linked Stars over a planet, Maria had say to dress up, and we'll this one made the most of hard earned athletic figure. Smiling a alittle, she did her blonde hair down but in a lose braid with a glittering bit of costume jewelry. Not expensive but a nice accessory.
... Victoria Dress
Victoria had managed to aquire a new dress to fit, a task and a half, her old wardrobe did not suit her new dark hair and skin tone, instead a blood red Ruby necklace on a short silver chain and a modern deep Navy blue Cocktail dress, strapless at the top showing off her alabaster skin tone tucked in at the waist and a slightly lighter material skirt above the knee and flaring slightly. Flat but strapy matching shoes, well a tiny heal but barely worth mentioning. Her recent feelings and wobbles She really did not trust heals right now.
Finishing up with her hair fairly natural, still learning how make the deep Raven black work in multiple ways, a gold and red gemmed costume jewellery bracelet glittering on her wrist, though with her size and conditions, she did not mention it had to be in one of the the smallest size you could find for ladies jewellery. Her normal glittering ice blue diamond ring on her finger. She never took it off much, she had her mother's ring locked up in London, that one she was too scared to wear for fear of losing it among other personal effects of Darya,s.
...Maria Thursday to Saturday , dress . Saturday evening with sisters
Maria parked her white Bentley by the side of the house, rented but she loved having a powerful car. The planning sessions with Alexandria had taken a while for them to agree. They both had some pretty strong ideas and eventually found a middle that worked perfectly. She knew the house better, Alexandra knew the art. Both women where pretty big on planning and knew the works. It did lead to a few clashes but they worked well ernough, Maria hoped Siobhan`s art was up there with her dress sense though, she had only seen a small sample of the works.
The house was set up, the ballroom had the art works placed, the order had been changed more times than she could count till perfect and the entry had been set up for arivials with fresh flowers and few areas to sit down and mingle. A larger area set up in the gardens was... Up extremely quickly and the bar come conservatory was being busied about preparing for the evening. Heading up the stairs, she glided up to have a final word with the two sisters.
Everything was ready, the house the garden and the various staff shiobhan and Alexandria had required. Not that the caters seemed as friendly to them as others for some reason. Now all they had to was wait for the ticketed guests and the two dates. Fluffy would be staying upstairs, curled in front of fire and sleepy, she had worn her dog out in a morning run round Corona Park though Fluffy always seemed to manage to find a way to get some fuss from her mistress or the sisters.
Deciding to make a impression, well Maria was not exactly on her first rodeo as she twirled in the mirror by the stairs for the exact puropee of checking before you headed downstairs. A long and flowing black dress with materals and very dark tones for depth. Glittering with crystals against the luxurious black. A few details in silver broke up the deep black with highlights. A strong contrast to her gold blonde hair but it worked, eyes glittering gold with her makeup to make the rare eye colour all more prominent.
Greeting Marinalia and Victoria, both least managed to look the part if happy to have there home back after this evening, a bottle of champagne popping open. "Cheers, to a quiet evening! And yes I know your a trouble magnet Mali..."
she had a few things to discuss before there evening began. There choice in dates where definitely... Well Marinalia had admitted a tall caribian woman and Victoria a rockstar of sorts... No one in this fnaily seemed to do anything by halves. Mentions. @Almalthia@Zaxter996@Majoras End@King Tai
