About what you'd expect from the estate of a very wealthy man and his spoiled daughter. It's not quite as overly extravagant as some other rich folks' homes are, but the status of the people living here is still fairly obvious. Various employees also live here, being more than spacious enough to accommodate them, including two of the young heiress' closest friends, who also service her as maids.

One room, one quite spacious room, is empty at the moment. This room is filled with bookshelves to the ceiling, but there is one side with a soft red carpet and a tall, large mirror with a gilded frame. The room is silent - so silent the soft footsteps of the woman entering echo hollowly, to be absorbed by the books, her only witnesses. She stands in front of the mirror, staring at herself. Taking a look around to make sure she was truly alone, she takes a stride...

And starts to silently dance. In the fancy style of the lords and ladies. With maaaaaaaybe a touch of mocking exaggeration to the frilly curtseys and twirls.

It's a bit evident she wasn't professionally trained, but all in all it's very nice.

Another woman bearing a decent resemblance to the first silently walks into the room, carrying a handful of books in her arms, but stops as she notices the other woman dancing. She looks on for a few moments before speaking up, smiling.

"Gosh, Flora, you're a good dancer."

"Gah! Felicia?! What are you... Um... I-it's nothing, really, I was just, uh, coming in here to dust off the mirror."

She gestures to the clearly spotless mirror, face reddening ever so slightly.

"It's alright, Flora. You don't have to hide anything from me. I'll keep it secret that you were dancing by yourself in here~" Felicia teases her twin sister gently as she walks towards a bookshelf with a few empty spaces and begins replacing the books in her arms.

"...Thank you, Felicia. You know I wasn't slacking off," Flora says earnestly as she picks up the rug and starts to clean off the not-even-visible markings her feet had made on it. Best to be thorough with all cleaning endeavors. Not the merest ghost of a hair out of place.

"You never do, it seems. I really do think you dance nicely, Flora. If only I were half as coordinated as you are..." Felicia begins to blush a bit herself, recalling the time SHE had tried to practice dancing herself and nearly tripped over her own feet within 10 seconds.

"You more than make up for it, just by being you," Flora says warmly.

"Aww, Flora... Thank you. As she finishes putting the books away, she turns and gives her sister a big hug.

Flora returns the hug somewhat clumsily, clearly not expecting it.

"Heehee... Sorry. I just really appreciate your encouragement, Flora. And I don't mean just now. You always have been... I couldn't ask for a better sister."

Flora smiles. "What are sisters for?"

"Right! And you know I'll encourage you, too, sister." Felicia smiles back as she looks around. "Lady Valentine should be back any minute now..."

"Yes, let's go!" Felicia nearly loses her footing, but regains it quickly as she walks out of the room and towards the front door of the estate.

Flora follows, smiling contentedly.

Sure enough, within minutes the young heiress returns, the same as when she left with the exception of a single shopping bag in one arm.

"Allow me to get that for you, Lady Valentine," Flora offers, gently smiling.

"Oh! Thank you, Flora. And hello to both of you, too!" Valentine smiles warmly as she hands Flora her bag before wrapping the both of them in a hug.

"Hehe... welcome back, Lady Valentine. How was your trip?"

"Oh, it went quite swimmingly! I found another piece for my collection, and... Well, I got something for the two of you, as well~"

"Oh, you did?" Felicia asks, trying to sound surprised as she smiles. However, this was far from the first time she's come home with gifts for them, nor would it be the last, most likely.

"Milady is most generous," Flora says, trying not to grin.

"Oh ho ho! Nothing's too good for my favorite maids!" she teases as she reaches into the bag and pulls out a pair of simple, yet expertly crafted, matching necklaces with small snowflake symbols adorning them. "I saw a merchant selling these and figured you'd like them..."

"Thank you so much, Lady Valentine!"

Valentine hands one to each of them with a smile. "I'm glad you liked them. Like I said, nothing's too good for you two."

Flora happily tries it on.

Felicia does the same as Valentine continues. "Hm... The merchant said something about it befitting those with ice powers, too..."

"Oh, my... Flora, look!" Felicia points to Flora's necklace, which has started gleaming beautifully, yet unobtrusively, almost like crystals of ice, unaware that hers was doing the same as soon as she put it on.
