[P] You're the black ice on my road to wholesome
P. Adrianna | Government Estate

Positioning his stained and aged hand mirror this way and that, tilting it up and then down; left and right, Lucian admired his reflection without shame. He was having a particularly good day — his clothes hung on him without wrinkles or ripples and his mane! Lucian combed his fingers through it again and panned the mirror upwards again, observing his perfect pompadour with bright green approval. Though bad hair days were rare for the young Amaranthe, there was something about the way the locks of his mane fell against his crown today that made him look decidedly flawless.


Flashing himself a winning smile, the Sodalis youth set his mirror back down atop his weathered dresser and smoothed his vest against his chest. The only thing that would make this day better was Sloan. Things seemed to be going well enough for him in that regard but they still hadn't done anything. Lucian wondered if there was something he could do to help speed things up and make her more receptive to certain... advances. Like a gift. Everyone liked gifts, especially if they were personal. Wouldn't a gift help to show Sloan how much he thought about her? Lucian thought so.


And, naturally, clothing was the first thing he considered.


Stepping to the door, Lucian swung it open and slipped through the doorway in a single smooth motion. He pulled the door shut again behind him, waiting until he heard the satisfying click before turning his back on it and sliding down the hallways to the room adjacent to the one he shared with Dareios. This room belonged to Sapient's master Tailor, the lovely Moineau woman named Austri. She was an exotic sort of thing to Lucian and there was something exciting about her bi-colored eyes. But, more importantly, she had quite a talent with cloth. He gave her door a polite rap with jutting knuckles and listened for any sounds within.


He heard nothing and suspected that she had stepped out. After waiting what felt to be an acceptable amount of time, Lucian knocked on her door again but was again met with silence.


"Balls," he murmured unhappily. And the day had been going so well.

Adrianna loved clothing. It had been mere child’s play back in Rome where boutiques, tailors, and seamstresses were readily available to service the merchant kings in the upper echelons of the Lumen Romani, as well as any of the wealthy passersby that had enough goods to barter for tailoring work custom made. Less well-off canines could pay in food for readymade garments that likely fit poorly, were likely lazily made or modified, but were still relatively fashionable for the moment.

Naturally, a child of the trading family of the Lumen was well off enough to wear whatever she wanted for fun. Whenever a whimsy took her, her father would happily spoil her with expensive goods to trade to the vendors, likely obtained in his trading ventures, of which a few likely were not entirely morally correct. It had never quite crossed her mind to ask her father where all the goods came from, but she had been learning the ropes with the legitimate end of their family business.

However, on the run from home, she had not packed many of her clothes, and she had had a closet full of things that had been gloriously pretty for no reason other than being pretty. Now, she had maybe three sets of clothes. Her diaphanous shift was mostly a length of gossamer fabric draped elegantly around ones torso and tied with a belt to secure it into place. It was delicate, though Adrianna liked the effect. Her work clothes were a sturdy tunic shirt and equally sturdy pants that she did not mind dirtying overly much.

Her third, however, was one she took with her mostly for sentimental reasons; just days before her departure she had pulled a massive seam down the side of the pants of the red and silver colored jumpsuit. The belt to her shift matched the pantsuit beautifully, but with a long line running from the outside of her thigh down to her calf, it was kind of abhorrent to wear. She thought once to cut the inseam – or rather, have a seamstress do it for her, but now she just wanted the pant leg intact.

She had heard about a tailor that could have helped her from talk offhand, and figured now was as good a time as any to see if something could be done. How she was going to pay, Adrianna did not entirely know. Still, she threw on the shift in a tighter wrap than usual, covering both breasts, and draping modestly below her navel, as well as over her tail. Sapient’s rules prevented her from going without, though she was not sure she minded the rule much anyway.

What she found, however, was that she was not the only one looking for the woman who was said to be the tailor. He swore, which Adrianna was not sure was a good sign. She approached him with her folded suit in hand, and stood near. “Is.. is she not there?” she asked hesitantly, tilting her head to look toward the gap in the door below, wondering if perhaps she was avoiding the knocker.

OOC: I figured they probably knew each other at least by name but let me know if not okay! <3


Missing Austri was disastrous and threatened to put a serious smudge on his day of absolute perfection. He knocked again, hoping that she simply hadn't heard him the first time, and then again, just for good measure, but either she was avoiding him or (more likely) she had stepped out of her room to attend other matters. As he stood there in front of her door, considering whether or not she perhaps had a workshop in Oxley, the unmistakable scent of a woman tickled his nose and drew his attention elsewhere. Lucian swiveled his head around, toxic green eyes landing upon the very fine body of one of Sapient's newer members. Adrianna, if memory served. He quickly erased the frown from his face and replaced it with his usual wry smile.


Maybe this wasn't so bad a setback as he thought.


"Either that or she's avoiding us," he replied with a sigh, his eyes leaving her body a moment to take a glance at the item she had folded in her hand. "That's nice," he said, gesturing to the article of clothing before looking her up and down again. "So is your gown. What is that made out of, if you don't mind my asking?" Even if she did mind, Lucian would have asked her about it anyway. Such words were just an illusion of politeness.


Combing his fingers through his pompadour, Lucian glanced at Austri's closed door again. "I was going to see if she had anything I could get for my—" He hesitated only a beat. "For someone," he offered as an explanation for his presence outside the Tailor's room. Since he and Sloan weren't official yet it seemed wiser not to label them. Besides, it might scare this lovely thing away from some beautiful possibilities. "What were you going to see her for?"

The handsome man was there for the same purposes that she was, and she had to admit that she was not entirely displeased with the turn of events as they had come to be. She did not mind the company of handsome men, even if Nikolas often made cutting remarks about her promiscuity. She rarely gave him satisfaction of a true response and merely smiled, asking if he were jealous. He usually sighed in a huff and went off.


How tiresome.


Adrianna sighed. "Oh, I hope that she's not avoiding us." What kind of tailor avoided work? She was ready to discuss payment and everything. Still, her dwindling resources meant that she need to start thinking of ways of getting more to her name, or the last of her luxurious lifestyle would be gone in a puff of smoke.


"Oh I have no idea, either cotton or silk, but I'm not really sure." She waved a freehand in the air a little, shaking off the question. "I got it from a trader in Rome, he didn't know either." Not that she cared. She forked over good food and a nice ring for the suit and some other things besides.


Adrianna did notice the way he broke off his speech. His.. what, she wondered. Her look was consipiratorial as she held back the question of if he wanted a gift for a paramour. Likely as not, a man as handsome as Lucian was not without the ladies, and likely boys, that would come crawling into his bedroom like a hungry pet. Adrianna could not say she was not interested either, and had long since had enough of Niko's commentary to settle into making it into reality.


The woman looked down at her pantsuit and then smiled as though she had a big secret. "Oh, it's not a dress," She unfolded it and held it by the halter top knot, spread it out a little with the other hand to demonstrate the decidedly un-dress-like seperate legs. She also made obvious the massive rip down the leg side and sighed as the leg opened terribly wide.


She folded up the suit again after the demonstration, and gave him a singular glance, before grinning smugly. "Who you getting a piece for? A lovely lady? Who is it?" she asked, curling the folded suit toward her chest, and edging closer to the man.


that's fine! makes it easier on us anyway

Lucian brightened. "Silk?" He nodded approvingly. It was a rare material but the young Amaranthe was familiar with it from the various dresses and gowns and blouses that this mother had from Onuba. "May I?" he asked, lifting his hand with intent to feel her lovely shift. He imagined it to be light and soft, warmed by the heat of her body. Perhaps he might even accidentally brush against her lovely frame as he pulled his hand away again. He lifted bright green eyes to her amethyst irises and waited for her consent.


"Is that where you're from or were you just visiting?" he asked of Rome. Lucian had heard the name of this place before but had no idea where it was. He smiled more sharply. "My family is from Onuba in Spain. I hear that it's beautiful but I've never been. Someday, I hope."


For a while, it seemed as though his slip-up had gone unnoticed and Lucian was glad to continue their conversation. He watched as the suit unfurled and revealed two separate legs, one of which had a rip down its side. It splayed and yawned wide, making the Sodali cringe emphatically. "How awful!" he said honestly. It was such a lovely article of clothing that it seemed almost a sin to see it torn so violently. "I do hope Austri can mend that for you."


And then, as Adrianna folded her suit up again and flashed him with a smug grin, Lucian groan inwardly. He thought quickly. "Oh, yeah... Well, I like her but I don't think that she really notices me much," he said. "I thought I could maybe have something nice made for her and maybe, you know..." He shrugged and smiled. "But hey, there are always others out there, right?"

She smiled a little absently when his eyes met hers and she gave him the slightest of winks before looking back down at her silken garment. She smoothed it over her hands and folded it neatly back up in a rather quick fold. She also hoped that the woman would be able to mend the garment, but she was certain it wouldn't be easy. The material wasn't common and she was lucky it survived the trip the way it had.


"I was born there," she said proudly. There was no reason to hide from the man, especially if his family was from Onuba. A prestigous place if she recalled her father's comments correctly. There was trade to be had there, which was the only reason she would have ever heard of it. "I heard it's nice. Not sure if it's anything like Brundisium but," she trailed off, shrugging.
