β€œThat is well understandable… like all the aunties and old ladies even back before the whole… world went to hell.” Amelia replied to Nikki with a nod and a smile. It was usually the case no, older people loved to talk about the events happening to others around them. Guess it was their entertainment and she couldn’t blame them for it, nor she had any intention to. If they wanted to talk about her and Riley they were all welcome, as long as nothing bad was being said at the very least.

Hearing what was to happen with the clothing and how Nikki proposed to deal with it, Amelia nodded in agreement now that she had the proposal.” Yeah that will do. Thank you.” She replied and scurried off behind the curtains of the dressing room to change clothing once more. It was a pleasant weird feeling to be back in a dress after all that time. She finished putting on her more comfortable for work clothing, folded the dress and walked out of the dressing room joining Nikki so they can get back to work.

It was a lot of menial work, but Amelia actually found it rather zen in a way. It was relaxing and calming to the mind, she didn’t mind the fact it wasn’t very energetic and activity demanding job. It made her calm to have something simple and repetitive to do and sorting out items and writing lists was quite much so. Suddenly she looked up from the things they were sorting and rearranging and looked at the other girl. She didn’t reply for a moment, making a reminiscing expression.” James. We got along well back in Newnan, can’t quite say the same for the rest, but I owe him at least that much.” She explained when something small and furry scurried off from among the furniture and the different things arranged about the hall.

Before Amelia realized It was happening, the thing had already climbed up her leg and only then did she feel and realize it! She nearly jumped as she looked down and saw… a pair of beady eyes of a mouse! She froze in place, staring at the little critter. She wasn’t deadly afraid of mice, and being startled was not a new thing in the world. She relaxed a bit, it was just a small mouse, not even a big rat anyways. Mouses were cuter than rats...” MM… Nikki, can you… get it off my leg?” She asked, not moving much. She was afraid that if she moves it might start climbing again. She wasn’t really afraid of it, at least not to freak out. Itg wasn't a dog after all, it was a small mouse with cute beady eyes. She still didn’t want to be used as a climbing playground for a random mouse though.

Work was going great. In fact Lisa found herself thinking it was going better than expected, maybe better than she hoped to. Many was learning quickly the specifics of the trade, likely from past experience, but I was nice to have someone else to help her out with it so the task was going smoother and faster. What’s more just to make things even better overall, the smell was going away rather fast as well! Good, meant they were doing a great work indeed.” We keep going like this and we’d be more or less done by the time you need to leave.” She smiled at the man. That was especially great news, because well… Lisa still had work to do back at Medical. The cleaning there had to be done as well and it wouldn’t wait till tomorrow. As soon as they were done here, she was more or less running back to Mediacal to finish the job there as well. Hell she had no idea why SB agreed to send here here before they were done with the basement in the hospital. Maybe they were going to be doing something to the boat and needed it in good condition first.

With a grin she tossed a look at Manny.” Well maybe you will get the chance to see the world then. Follow your dreams, but I think you will like it here also.” She chuckled and shrugged her shoulders.” Most people like it here and for a good reason. Still you’ve been out of quarantine barely half a day, so no worries. By the time a few weeks pass and you’ve met many of the locals, you will feel a lot more comfortable here. By then you will also have had the chance to talk with many of those who have been part of this place way longer than myself.” She added with friendly voice. He would certainly start to feel better and more fitting once he makes a few friends among the similar aged people in the camp, she was certain of it!

β€œYeah, well as I already said, they clearly aren’t decaying as normal corpses would. Without very indepth studies on it, anything we say here is mere speculations and guesses, but if they do indeed get worse with time and eventually it affects their mobility and danger and then the rules will be more loose. Until and if at all till then, the rulers are actually pretty secure and keep the place running in good operational state.” Lisa shrugged, thinking about the walkers she’d seen so far. In all honestly, she had her doubts that they will ever completely go away baring some miracle like superpowers.” As for how it will be if walkers aren’t as dangerous anymore… probably as it’d been before he zombies appeared. Ideally people will have learned that working together for a long time.” A bit of an optimist view on the topic, but she was a bit of an optimist anyways.

β€žOh…” She made a sound of realization as Nikki explained the way the old ladies probably viewed her and Riley. Amelia was quiet for a moment then let out a rare chuckle.” I suppose we are the new show in town then. Not sure they will find us as interesting as a soap opera though.” She smiled and was a a rather good mood. It was true that she and Riley were going steady for a while now and she was so glad for it.” Mmmm… I guess I will be learning how to play cards today.” Amelia thought aloud. There were a lot of activities to spend your free time it seemed. It seemed there would be a good variety to choose from and it won’t be getting stale for a while at least.

β€œI like the hat very much, no need for a wig, thank you!” Amelia quickly fired out a statement as she gripped the hat and put it on, holding it in place, clearly refusing to put on a wig in a bit of a comical manner. It was an attempt at a humor given the situation. She smiled at Nikki and quickly folded the clothing she wore until now.” Well I don’t like bright colors to begin with, so this gray dress serves me perfectly.” She explained that it was mostly because of personal preference.” And I suppose you are right there. It’s just that out there on the roads, you cannot allow yourself to show any weakness so stuff that stands out or is in the way is usually a bad thing when you can expect walkers to sneak up on you at all times even when you rest.” She sighed and moved the hat about to set it better. It felt odd on her head right now since the hair was slowly growing, but she supposed once she gets some hair going, it’d look better.” So what do I do with my old clothes now? I suppose they should be brought to be cleaned.”

β€œMm, once more thank you for this.” She added with a smile also looking around the place and all the things set about it.” I suppose we should be returning to work now, don’t want you to get in trouble for spending all this time to help me. I need to work extra hard had to make up for this and the fact I will be leaving soon!” Amelia said with serious voice and conviction.” So now that we ran the papers before lunch, what do we have to do now? Check more lists… or?”

Lisa looked at Manny as they were working and he brought up the topic of other settlements. She rose an eyebrow and thought for a bit.” Not really.” Was her simple reply that came pretty fast.” Since I’ve come to this place, I’ve rarely went outside unless on duty. As for the other settlements, never had the opportunity to.” She shrugged as she cleaned the room in the boat. As the man mentioned a conflict she just shrugged.” Mmm not sure what exactly I can tell you about that. Honestly not sure on the details myself, you want the specifics you can try the General or Gunny. Or SB if she’s in a good mood.” She chuckled.

With her piece said, she focused on the boat once more. The thing was rocking gently which wasn’t unusual and it wasn’t too bad, at least it wasn’t interfering with clean up. What’s more after the initial period of once more getting used to it, work was actually going smoothly. She felt that in fact they might get done here earlier than initial estimates! Lisa smiled, she liked it when work was going great.

β€œAnyhow, yeah I actually don’t know much about the conflict as I said. Not sure it matters that much right now though, it’s already settled.” Lisa stated and looked at Manny.” Why are you asking about that anyways? Curiosity?” She asked him with calm voice and pointed at at a spot by him.” Focus on that thing. It’s requiring more scrubbing than the rest.” She added with a smile. Lisa was now curious why he was asking about that topic. Was he worried that a conflict might break out again?

Amelia was honestly taken a bit by surprise by how the things with Mary happened. Despite Nikki’s faul and direct language, nothing happened. What’s more despite Mary’s even more threatening attitude she just walked away, finally allowing Amelia the chance to take a deep breath and nod at Nikki.” I assume this happens often?” She asked, her eyes wandering towards the door where Mary had left from.

β€œUhh…? Ahhh, those things.” She was at first a bit confused about what the younger girl was describing for a moment there, before the image clicked in her head. Now that was a surprising hobby to have. The name for it slipped her mind also, it was some specific naming term used, she’d recall it eventually when she wasn’t trying to think it up.” If it works, I think it’d be worth to see one.” Amelia said, imagining a balling ball going down some rails of a building triggered by a walker walking over something and the ball falling on it’s head.” I imagine they don’t just allow her to actually go outside freely and do those right? I imagine the hoops to jump through with a hobby like that are quite a few?”

Then there were also the other women in Supply who started to sign off for the end of their shifts. Amelia waved a good bye to them as well, feeling a bit surprised when they invited them to play cards later.” Maybe? I’m not sure for today.” She admitted quietly. She truly wasn’t sure if she would have the chance to go to the card gathering and then she wasn’t sure she’d be willing to go there on her own. Admittedly she found it easier to hang around people of ages with some distance to her own, but still. She’d say it to Riley also and see if the musician wants to go. Yeah.

As Nikki started to explain the women’s curiosity. Amelia blushed up a bit and coughed one with a nod.” I suppose it’s not surprising.” She said quietly. Well it wasn’t a bad thing anyways. Though she wondered if the girl had to put it so bluntly. Well so far it seemed that she was frank to painful degree and didn’t pick her words and in a way, Amelia appreciated that honestly a lot.” I suppose they curiosity doesn’t hurt. Hmm?” She made a questioning sound at the end as Nikki seemed to have found whatever she was searching for.

β€œ...” Amelia had a puzzled confused face for a moment as she picked the older styled hat with a veil form the younger woman’s hands. She looked at Nikki for a moment, then at the hat and only then tried it on. She had to admit by type it did go well with the gray summer dress, Amelia liked that. Looking through the veil around it was a bit weird at first.” It’s a nice hat and I do like it… and it does go with the dress, but isn’t it a bit… much given the situation?” She asked Nikki with quiet voice.” Most others would be dressed with more regular clothing… this will stand out so much...”

β€œWell honestly I’ve been cleaning here a a number of times already, but full out boat ride into deep waters? On that front, not really.” She shrugged and tossed a look at the older man.” Well to be completely honest I wouldn’t mind one day going to the deep ocean on a boat.” She admitted, getting to the cleaning that needed to be done.” I think, I might like it there. It would be nice and calm most of the time.”

The medical room on board the boat was small, well cramped would be the proper word for it, but hey it was getting the job done.” This is likely to take a few hours and it’s not even a bad case of it.” She chuckled as she got to cleaning and sterilizing.” We are lucky they must have not encountered anything bad out there. It’s going to be a longer more monotonous job today it seems.” She smiled and tossed a look at Manny.” Again it’s likely you’ve got to leave before we finish here, but don’t worry. No need to hurry with the task.” She reassured him and focused on the job.

Well she hoped that a few of the tricks of the trade she had picked up along the years would help speed up the process, but as she was wiping up surfaces and tools, she realized it wasn’t going to cut it right now. She’d have to do it all properly down to the basics without any smart tricks up her sleeve. She didn’t mind much though. She had nowhere to hurry to today.
@ONL nah not sure on inviting anyone on my side. Will work on the character in the next few days however

β€œSet up traps? What?” Amelia was a bit confused for a moment when Nikki mentioned Lisa for some reason and talking about traps. Then after a moment she had a sudden realization.”Ohh...timing yes. Timing is important for traps. What did you mean by 'weird' though?” She nodded, somewhat understanding it now.” Well knowing the time and being on time is usually always a good thing. If nothing else, you won’t be yelled at for being late.” Amelia smiled and looked at the younger woman.

β€œStill, thank you a lot.” She repeated and smiled at Nikki.” I will make use of your good will.” Amelia added and started looking through the variety of clothing she had been presented. The girl had indeed went the mile and sorted it out for her. The clothing was indeed simple though varied on the things present. Still looking them over she smiled and nodded before pulling out the simple gray summer dress. It wasn’t anything fancy and it should be comfortable for this weather and if nothing else since it was a summer dress it didn’t hinder mobility as much and can easily be adapted if it did in extreme situations.” Thing this is about my size.” She mentioned lining it against herself just as a vague measure and followed with her eyes where Nikki pointed out the changing rooms.” Okey, be right…???” She was surprised by the sudden change of mood in Nikki as she took a glance at who had just entered. She wasn’t quite 100% certain, but if she recalled right this was the woman from Medical.

Amelia nearly jumped when the woman snapped at them. At first she thought something had fucked up and got concerned as she threw her concerned and somewhat afraid glances at Nikki, as if asking if she had done something and fucked up on her day at work. Her worry and concern was short lived as Nikki, the ever present heroine of bravery and attitude she was, ranted back and in the process all was explained to Amelia as well. She took a deep breath, holding the dress to her chest, relieved that nothing was wrong.” Ohh right, yes.” Snapped by to reality by the younger woman’s reminding her of the changing rooms with her gesture, Amelia hurriedly moved to them and got into one. She was NOT hiding from the scary angry sounding snapping woman.

With the safe and secure confines and cover of the changing room, she slowly undressed the clothing she had on, and taking a look at the dress, quickly put it on. It was mostly okey, she did a quick turn around, mostly pleased with it. Sure it was a simple gray color one, but she liked it like this. Honestly the only thing she missed was her hair in this case. She pulled herself out of the changing room to show it to Nikki.” I think it’s good. It fit me. Well it’s a bit wider on the waist, but, otherwise it’s good. I think this one it will be.”

β€œIf they taught walker lore and biology at med schools, I think we would have had a lot more doctors running around. Anyways no leaving for tomorrow I’m afraid. Don’t worry however, I will deal with the rest after the boat is done and over with.” She smiled to Manny with a calm expression.” It’s just how things are, no two ways about it, this stuff’s important after all. Need the lab areas to be as clean as possible, even if we finished the basics already, can’t wait till tomorrow. Work's work and got to be done today.” She was overall used to these things even before the apocalypse started. It was basically her whole job prior to it after all.

Indeed it was good Medical and Water repair was reasonably close. Good time was made as the Water Repair Shop was reached. Lisa was mostly used to it by now, being in the camp for a while, didn’t know how her new helper would adapt to it however. Shouldn’t matter even if he was sea sick, which as far as she was aware, he wasn’t! Not that she’d know if he was, she didn’t read any files on him. She pointed out the boat they would be working to Manny. She wasn’t quite sure exactly how good a time they made, but it wasn’t yet 1400.

β€œHEY, Good day to you two!” She waved back as she heard Maddog voice. She waved the greeting to Rivets as well as she got close to them. Lisa was quick to get into working mood as she got to the other woman and took the list from her, giving it a quick look over, making mental notes about the things on it. True enough, it was mostly cleaning and restocking. She rose an eyebrow when she heard the comments from Maddog.” That’s good, though with this time going well, I fear next time it will take what’s due.” She replied to him.” As for the smell… It’s nothing much than the usual.” She added and gestured to Manny.

β€œTo introduce you, this is Manny. He will be helping out with cleaning duties at Medical from now on. So you will probably meet up more often.” She introduced the man with a smile on her face.” Manny, these are Maddog and Rivets."

β€œAlright, gotta start working ASAP. Stuff for some reason seems to be stacking up today. Got directed here before I finished off at Medical completely, so unless I want to stay overtime, I can’t fool around and lose time willy nilly.” She chuckled and waited for Maddog to get off the ramp and then got onto the boat herself to properly asses the condition once she was inside. β€œOkey this shouldn’t be too bad.” She smiled and put on the gear… aka some gloves to protect from the chemicals and other such materials that they’d be using to sanitize the thing.” First time cleaning a boat?” She asked Manny as she got to work.
Hey @ONL I be here to express my interest after all!

Amelia put on a big smile with Riley by her. Blushed a bit when she was hugged and kissed on the cheek, but otherwise didn’t say much, just nodded and smiled there. It was already noisy enough in the mess hall so it was a bit easier for her to stay calm here. People were too busy with their own meals and chats to pay any attention to the rest.

β€œHmm?” She made a questioning sound as Riley recounted her first day experience in the church so far. Well it was a church, big building with big rooms, dust tended to gather easily. The later part of the explanation made her really confused and a bit concerned.” Really?” She asked, her eyes very quickly followed where her lover was pointing at. She couldn’t quite understand why this was happening, but decided to trust in Riley and she wrapped her own hand around her lover in return.” It’s going to be alright. Just do your job and don’t mind it too much. It will all work itself out eventually.” She said reassuringly. Maybe one day they will once more get into better terms with Tati, but for now, Amelia thought it was best to not push it. If the woman wasn’t wanting to talk, leave it at that.

β€œIs he really? Glad to hear it in this case.” She asked, pondering the man that was Padre. She chuckled when Riley started questioning her instead.” I’m happy that’s the case I suppose. I’m with Auntie as superior. She’s actually kind of nice. Nikki’s my… senior colleague… This sound funny when I say it aloud, but both of them are real nice. I mean Nikki gave me a pair of sunglasses today and now Auntie said she’d allow me to choose something for the visit to the graveyard.” She explained to the other woman, recounting her own events over the day, including the wait at the beach and the little cloud lecture.

Soon enough she realized that time was running short when Riley pointed it out. Amelia was startled, but smiled.” I really should. I don’t want to be late! Yes, see you later,… lo...v… love.” She grabbed the watch, she needed to return it after all, leaned over, took control of her will, gave Riley a kiss on the cheek and ran like the wind, cheeks flushed bright red.

Breathing a bit heavily, Amelia walked through the doors of the Supply and taking deep breaths she rested herself by leaning on the wall for a bit. She ran all the way here, because she thought she’d be late and she nearly was! Good thing that Riley reminded her. To her surprise she didn’t spot her colleague.” Nikki?” She asked, but she couldn’t see her. Suddenly after a bit of looking around confused, she heard the girl, who moments later showed herself through one of the doors. Presumably the door to the back that she mentioned just now.” Hey, I made it in time.” Amelia smiled and reached over to return the clock.” Here, thank you for lending it to me. I really would have been late otherwise.” Amelia made sure to thank her properly. Her eyes then lingered to the counter and all the clothes on it.” … that’s a lot of clothing.” She said quietly as she studied the clothes. Was the girl picking out clothing for her to choose from?

β€œDid you pick these for me to choose from, Nikki?” She asked with a bit of an emotional voice.” Thank you.” Amelia was actually very much touched.

β€œMmmmm, not sure we will see. Honestly shouldn’t have all walkers decayed by now normally? I mean it’s been years and bodies tend to decay a lot for such a long time and the walkers as far as I’m aware do not seem to have changed too much?” She shrugged. Walkers and the mystery of their origin and the way they functioned was a thing she had no idea of. It wasn’t her field of expertise, maybe there wasn’t anyone left alive who could call himself an expert in these things.” Well, if I cannot trap a walker, I can always trap something else. I’m sure something will present itself as a chance eventually.”

β€œMm… it’s not really hard. The boat is kept pretty clean, especially their medical section, but it’s impossible for Medic to overcome the power of the ocean alone, so salt’s everywhere eventually. It’s not hard to clean, but it will be tedious. More of a chore really.” She reassured the man with a kind smile as she tossed as she noted the signals and that it was 1330 now.” Alright… time ran out, anything else will have to be left for later.” She stated and picked up the results that needed to be delivered to Admin.” Luckily we don’t have much walking ahead of us, Water Repair is close enough.” She added to Manny as she quickly put away the cleaning tools here and then headed out of the Hospital, going through the motions and procedures and then starting to head over to the Admin building that was next over.

As times before she walked over and entered the Administration building, went to the in-box where she usually left the results, left them there and quickly headed back out, continuing her way over to the Water Repair Shop. She wasn’t hurrying too much, because it was close distance and she had to show the way to Manny. It was a great arrangement though, the 3 buildings being basically one by the other. Made getting to the tasks locations fast and easy. She walked up to Water Repair and smiled before entering. There was work to be done here also!

β€žOhh... That's nice.” Amelia realized after Nikki's explanation that she was technically given a gift when she was allowed to pick up some new clothing. It was going to be free of charge! That's very nice of her. She was surprised, initially believing it would take a long time before she gets anything in this place given the explanation, however they had barely started and Nikki had put a pair of shades in her hands to use while moving about the camp for confirming requests and then Auntie was going to allow her to get clothing.” I will have to thank her properly later.” She said, mostly to herself as the topic moved to Nikki answering her earlier question about the seats.

Following the indication by the girl, Amelia nodded that she had indeed spotted the man. Then the topic turned in a very unexpected for her direction and she blushed slightly and nodded in understanding. So it was a case of just having fun, but the other party wanting more. She was in agreement with Nikki on this. With the intention to saying something, suddenly she was cut in the line, as Hunter appeared, went on an apology speech and left.” Eh...?” She completely forgot what she wanted to say due to this.” I'm not sure... I think it was indeed an apology? Probably?” Amelia tried to reply to Nikki's question, but honestly it took a bit for her to process it also. Was that really a true apology or was it not? Hunter's actions so far were weird over all, so she couldn't judge. She was just glad he didn't stay however... and even more glad the beast wasn't with him.

Amelia returned to eating and having nice time with Nikki when she heard a familiar voice as someone appeared and gave her a surprise hug! She was honestly startled for a bit before she recognized it was Guy.” Hey, Guy. AHmm... hug...” She managed to get a reply, while calming herself down from the sudden surprise of being hugged out of nowhere. It scared the angels out of her! Then her work colleague decided to leave early as Riley was arriving! Amelia's hearth fluttered inside when she saw the musician. She did spot that Nikki left her watch by her tray!” Thank you! I will be on time to return it to you!” She smiled at the girl, very grateful for what she had done and that she was treating her well.

β€œHey, Riley!” Amelia was all smiles now, seeing the person who made anything better in her life so far.” How was your day so far? Hmm what did you pick to eat?” She asked with big expecting eyes. At least they got the chance to have a bit of a lunch time together even if it wasn't much!

β€žMmm, alright. Don't worry, it's alright. It's my job as well and I've been doing it for a long while now. It's no issue for me to finish the cleaning today. It's your first day out of quarantine and into the job. It will take a few days to get into the rhythm of the job. I know it did take me a bit to get used to having a job again.” She smiled reassuringly at him as they chatted." However it's all good. People here know that, and with us two around even if you work less today, it is still a lot of help and time saved. So don't worry and go to teh funeral with calm heart."

β€œHehe, yeah, alarms were a bit much at first for me too. I had gotten used to moving at my own pace as I saw fit on the road, but nowdays I think I somewhat enjoy them. I mean we already go to bed early enough and waking up early, means we get a lot of the day to be productive. Even when not on duty.” Lisa smiled as she explained her own opinion on the alarms. Honestly sometimes she wished to sleep in well into the day, but the job was important and she enjoy it a lot too. So between sleeping in and working at Medical, she'd choose the morning shifts anyday.

β€œUhmm... not sure. I don't really have anything specific I want to get into outside of working at Medical. I enjoy working there a lot and mostly in the pharmaceutical side of things. So there's that and I got to it for the moment.” Lisa mused and thought about it for a brief moment.” Well it's not really a dream about a job or anything, but I suppose I do want to create the biggest rube goldberg machine trap for walkers... Kind of silly, but it's hilarious watching them falling into traps.” With that she finished the rest of her food and stood up.” Alright time to head back now.” She smiled and started heading for Medical. Now that Manny had a bit of experience with the area, he had passed through the motions of passing the checks so even if she hurried on first he should be good.

Luckily Medical and Mess Hall were very close to one another, so it wasn't long before she was back at her workplace and through the security checks and back to the underground floors. There was still a bit of work to do here, however unexpected news were waiting for her. So it was one of those days... they had to clean the boats.” Hmm, very well. We'll see what we can finish cleaning up here in the last few minutes or so we've got before then and be there soon.” Lisa replied, taking a look at the clock.” Well... not much time, better work faster!” She said to herself and started cleaning, so she could get as much work down in the last 15 or so minutes before they have to head for the Water Repair. They had finished the lab before dinner and the other rooms were at least faster to deal with.

After getting the needed confirmation she wasn't getting the nature of the paperwork wrong, Amelia turned her attention back to the task at work. Writing it all down, checking things, confirming them and then writing it neatly down. It was weirdly calming and therapeutic, like there wasn't anything else she needed to mind. Of course there were things that distracted her, concerns, the pesky little paranoia at the back of her mind that made her constantly check her side every couple of minutes and of course the missing of certain musician. The two of them were pretty much constantly together for so long, not having her about was weird and hard to get used to. Same with the rest of the Newnan crew though to a lesser extent.

Eventually Auntie showed up with a cart of stationary supplies. A brief thought ran through Amelia's mind yet again, where were they getting all this paper from? Maybe one they she'd ask about it, but for now her attention was pulled to another topic the woman mentioned. Amelia's mood fell a little at the mentioning of funeral. She felt sad again, recalling all those who didn't make it back then... at what seemed an eternity before. Some people were missed more than others and some were already fading because of the nature of the new world, but it made her sad never the less.

β€œI... don't need much.” She replied to Nikki when the mentioning of shopping was brought by the young woman too.” Well... maybe just a bit, something darker and simpler.” She mumbled, thinking about how one had to visit a graveyard.” Might need help... I was never good with clothing.”

In any case, it wasn't much later that the bell rang and it was food time. Luckily they seemed to have dealt with most things for the moment and there was just the distribution of the things in the cart afterwards. Nikki as true to her character so far was first to react, but Amelia hurried to follow and keep up with the overly energetic girl. It was fun to keep up with Nikki, she realized.” Right with you!” Having to keep up with someone this energetic, made her feel energetic too!

Out in the Mess Hall, she also headed to the line and lined up after Nikki. Thinking what to get for the meal, she checked up the food that was displayed and in the end she chose the casserole. It wasn't what she'd expected to eat today, but between all other things, it was the one that picked most of her attention so she chose it. Besides... noodles. By the time she picked her food, she had briefly lost sight of Nikki, only to spot her already at a table to the side and waving her over. Well someone was as usual quick, so she hurried over to the table.” Thanks. Why did you choose these seats though?” She smiled and sat down, wondering why Nikki picked this table. She didn't mind though, it suited her, a bit more out the way.” So... what does 'shopping' actually consist of? Do I just request some clothing temporary?” Amelia finally brought herself to ask.

β€žAlright, no worries, I understand. It's a bit crazy the first few days before you all get used for your schedules and get used to having your meals with friends.” Lisa smiled and walked over to the food displayed. There was a decent selection here! It didn't take much for her to decide on plain sushi. She felt like eating something simple and decently light. With her plates covered with her meal she started walking over to some empty spaces where she and Manny could sit down. On the way there she spotted Nikki and Amelia and waved out to them, she didn't try to call right now, because it was already noisy in the Mess Hall with all the people here. It was a waste of effort a wave and a smile were enough.

Finding the closest empty seats she sat down and gestured for the old man to hurry up.” So, we better eat fast because time is quickly passing when it's lunch time. An hour goes away in what feels like a brief moment!” She smiled and started eating her sushi. Waiting for him to settle down, she looked about, noting the people in and about. Nikki was out of the way for some reason, curious. As for the others, well it was about as usual mess hall as she knew.” So you going to be going to the funeral?” She asked him, as she tossed a bit more sushi into her mouth.” Cause if that's so, you will need to leave early and it'd be best for me to know in advance you see... Need to make my schedule to know which parts of the day I'd have to work alone. I'm used to it, so it's not that much of an issue, but better also make sure you head off in time and not miss it. It's a bit hard to keep track in time and I'm unsure if there will be a message over the comms about it, so yeah.” Lisa explained to Manny.

β€œAnyways on a side note, how was your first night as a proper resident of the camp? Slept well?” She pulled up a casual chatting topic with him. The camp was nice, it was well kept and maintained after all. Clean also, people here understood the value of keeping things clean!

Amelia studied the very focused on her work woman. She supposed it was normal if one liked their job to be hard to notice things happening around them. Amelia herself was a bit like this often when she read books, granted nowhere near the same serious level, but she did tend to not notice lesser distractions if she had a book... or was with Riley. Both things were very good at keeping her attention.

Thoughts of certain things and people aside, her attention focused on Nikki and then Chase again.” Stratocumulus?” She asked with quite a bit of pure curiosity, unfamiliar with the term, but with the other woman pointing out the clouds in the sky, it was obvious she was referring to those. That said, she had no idea what was special about it however. Curious it was indeed, but she didn't have a chance of asking about it, because then Nikki got very energetic again and Amelia found herself literally being pulled away from Chase and towards the direction where the golf cart was.”... Okey?” Amelia said in a bit of confusion, tossing a look at the cloud again.

β€œIs it bad to learn that though?” She asked, fixing the scarf she had on her head a bit to a different position. She wished it was growing faster and at least have short boyish haircut... heck she'd even agree on a crewcut or even a bit shorter.” I think it'd be useful... Surviving out there is hard enough, anything helps.” Though her opinion was well influenced by the fact hearing new things was good and well.. she already had some knowledge of survival. Might not have been a cloud reader, but she knew the value of being able to read the weather at least. In any case, she kept following after Nikki. IT didn't appear as a bad job and the company was nice.

Back at the main supply building, she took half the paper that Nikki handed her and followed her back into the building. Listening to the explanation, she looked clip board she'd use.” So... it's sorting. Okey, can do that.” She smiled and started writing down the things as they came from her list of things she had, stopping after a couple of lines, showing it to her colleague.” Just to confirm, it's like this right?” She asked, waiting for a confirmation, so she can dive into the rest of the stack of paper and hopefully indeed finish prior to lunch!

Lisa listened to Manni's recount of his life and his plans of what he wanted in his life. She looked at him with curious expression and a grin.” Seems like you've lived a rich life at the very least.” She nodded at him as she resumed her work, still smiling.” Honestly not sure how I'd have fared in such a life, I personally got along with my family, so there wasn't a need for spiting, but I understand families are different. In any case, thanks for telling me.” She nodded.” I will keep quiet about it also. So it's safe with me unless you tell someone else.” She explained to him.” Though, between us, did ya ever get into a big fight with other gangs?”

β€œEhh... it's just a thing in life.” She shrugged and looked at him when he started going on about getting older and why one better didn't become older! Not that they had much of a choice... aside dying, but she grinned at him.” Not much of a choice, but growing older is better than the alternative... and it also allows me to see more of the world and life and possibly find a partner! Besides if my favorite food starts tasting different, I will find a new favorite food!” The woman proclaimed with very confident expression and a joking grin.

β€œOn a side note... it appears we've finished with cleaning this room.” Lisa stated, tossing a look at the still going machine. The centrifuge was doing it's job, reminding her that Mary would likely appear later, possibly while they were away. Didn't matter much to her right now, since the work was done! The rest of the rooms should nicely fit into the schedule post lunch. Luckily for them the speakers also went off, indicating it was 12:00 and it was time for their lunch. β€œ Okey, time to take the cleaning tools over to their storage room and then we can head up for our meals, Manni.” Lisa informed him, pleased that they did finish this room after all.

Moving the cleaning utilities to their holding place for the meal time, she afterwards headed for the main floor of the building. They had to go through the procedure to leave as well. Thus she led the way to leave the Medical, going through the procedures to sign for the lunch break in the schedules at the entrance then started walking down the street towards the Mess Hall.” Wonder what's for lunch today.” She mused, leading the way inside. Luckily Medical and Mess Hall was pretty close to each other. Once inside she pondered for a moment, doing a quick sweep of the place with her eyes, confirming people here.” So, see anyone you want to sit with or ya sitting with me?” She asked with a smile, starting to slowly heading to pick herself some food.
