Horizon Parade Route-Beryl Harken


A siren split the air before the conversation could continue, two loud shrieks that every pilot was required to know at least in passing. Beryl's head snapped around towards the nearest telephone pole and then up at the sky. All levity was gone from her face as her mind raced through the reasons for the alarm.

It wouldn't be a test, system or personnel, not today. Theoretically some joker on base could be pulling a prank but something this big? And on this day? It would ruin the prankster's career at the very least. No, this was real. And it meant that their budding party had ended. Turning back to the rest of the group she asked.

"Think I could hitch a ride with any of you? I took the bus into town and I don't think waiting for one back is an option at the moment."

Vale-Shopping Mall-Beryl Harken


Gratia as always with the slightly grating voice of reason. Beryl made a noise of agreement and grabbed a white T-shirt off another rack before heading off to the changing stalls.

Lucky for Silver the faunus before him had turned her attention to folding the shorts in her hands. She still heard his question though.

"I can sense and control water. Comes in really handy with the whole swimming thing."

Vale-Shopping Mall-Beryl Harken


Huh?

Beryl tilted her head in confusion. Why would she want to show off her thighs? Sure she was proud of how fit she was but it wasn't like she wanted to brag about it. Unable to comment on the second part of Silver's comment she decided to respond to the first half instead.

"Well yes it's hardly a swimsuit, but you'd be surprised how often I have to jump into a large body of water without the opportunity to change first. Plus drying off is really easy with my Semblance."

Vale-Shopping Mall-Beryl Harken


"Eheh, ummmm yeaaaaaah." She couldn't help the embarrassed twitch that ran through her tail. Trying to ignore it she looked around the store as they entered. The theme advertised outside was continued within. Various female garments covered the built in wall shelves and took up the vast majority of the racks that filled the small store. A couple pictures of well dressed male models sat above a corner in the far back, hinting at the existence of something besides women's clothing. "I'd probably live in the water if all my friends and family weren't on land. It's always been my way to get away from the world. A place where I can just relax and not have to worry that someone's going starve, or get hit by a car, or get kidnapped...Ooooo."

The young huntress skipped over to something that had caught her attention on a nearby shelf, grabbing a pair of slim jean shorts and holding them up. "These shouldn't get in the way of moving around, even in the water. Look pretty sturdy too. No hole for my tail but I can add that later." She held them against her and turned to Silver. "What do you think?"

Vale-Shopping Mall-Beryl Harken


Her tastes? Beryl's tastes were well...they were whatever she could get her hands on. More than half her wardrobe consisted of hand-me-downs and old clothing various parents had donated to the orphanage. She supposed that there were a few she had bought or that had been bought specifically for her. Not enough to build much on the way of personal style but she supposed she had a few things in particular that she liked.

"Stuff that's easy to move around in. Pants, shorts, T-shirts. As for swimsuits, the only stuff I've found that lets me go as fast as I want to are the single piece sportswear stuff. Everything else tends to pulled on by the water."

"Some casual clothes aaaaaaand maybe another bathing suit. Bianca got one that doesn't squeeze the life out of me on the cruise but I go swimming so often that it's almost always in the wash."

Vale-Shopping Mall-Beryl Harken


Another kid from Atlas. Beryl briefly wondered if he and Jer-kun knew each other before deciding that they probably didn't. Not unless their newest teammate was also a super secret spy guy. She cast a sidelong glance at him as they moved through the store. He certainly didn't look like one, but that was kind of the point wasn't it? Can't be a secret agent if you look like one.

"Hey Gratia, what about that one?" The young huntress called out as a shop caught her eye. It was a smaller clothing shop that, while not exclusively, seemed to primarily cater to a female clientele.

Vale-Shopping Mall-Beryl Harken


"Huh." They were those simple bits of wisdom that made perfect sense when you heard them but that a newcomer might not have immediately realized. Beryl's personal experience with shopping was limited to supermarkets and bargain stores so having somebody else to show her the ropes of more mainstream establishments was extremely nice. She glanced over at the newest member of the team, wondering what his thoughts on being in a place like this was. He was probably familiar with such locations if his clothes were any indication.

"So where are you from, Silver?"

Vale-Shopping Mall-Beryl Harken


Half an hour later they were spilling out of Gratia's armed and armored SUV (the Gatling gun was safely hidden inside the vehicle) and making their way inside one of Vale's many shopping malls. The travesty that was the parka had been left behind and Beryl's handcuffs had vanished back to wherever it was she kept them. The moneybag Vega had been hauled out of bed and was now accompanying the group, leading the way in singing several songs on the way down from Beacon.

"All right!" Beryl called out with a clap of her hands as they entered the building. "I have no idea how to shop. Gratia, lead the way!"
