PostSubject: Gatsby Estate   Wed May 04, 2016 9:50 pm

First topic message reminder :

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.

Flora laughs softly. "Yours is reacting the same way, Sister..." She turns to Valentine. "Really, milady, you don't need to spoil us with gifts like this."

"But I want to, Flora. Not only are you two my favorite maids, you're also two of my closest friends. And really, what better thing is there to spend money on than my dearest friends?" Although one could interpret a bit of a condescending tone in that statement, they could tell she was being sincere. It was just her say of expressing her affection.

"Then by all means," Flora smiles. "We couldn't be happier."

"Aww, that's so sweet, milady. You're too kind. And in return, we'll both continue serving you to the best of our abilities." Felicia adds with an equally large smile.

"We~eell, I am feeling a bit worn out. I think I'm going to take a bath and retiring to my room for the night afterwards."

"As you wish, milady. I'll get the water running!" Felicia responds, eagerly heading off to do just that.

"I'll take care of your bag," Flora says, bowing and then walking off to finish her job.

"Thanks, you two. I'm gonna go let Daddy know I'm home, and I'll be with you shortly." Valentine states simply as she makes her way upstairs, another servant closing the door behind her.

The day sees Valentine sitting by the radio, listening to a particular station as was a relatively common sight in the mansion. However, this time she was accompanied by a guest, a dear friend of hers she had invited over.

Nalima lounges next to Valentine on the bed, ignoring the existence of a concept known as "personal space". She is busy embroidering roses onto a shawl.

"It's coming along quite nicely so far." Valentine comments as she glances over.

"Thank you, darling. I'm sure it'll look lovely on you as well."

"Never?! Oh, dear, I'm afraid I'll need to get more fabric tomorrow." Nalima looks out at the setting sun. "If it weren't so late, I'd insist on going now."

"Oh, my, there's no need to rush, Nalima. I'll wear this with pride for the time being!" Valentine exclaims cheerfully. She could probably be embroidering skulls and crossbones on it and Valentine would be just as excited to wear it...

"Wait until you see the Croix family emblem in all its glory on the back of a new jacket," Nalima teases, a twinkle in her eyes, which starts to fade as she remembers that Valentine isn't even part of House Croix -- she wouldn't be able to make that as a gift. The glimmer dulls entirely when she remembers the impending dissolution of their nobility, if only as far as their nobility is contained within an actual estate to their name.

Valentine, however, does not notice this fading twinkle, continuing to sound excited. "Oh, that sounds lovely! I'd be honored to wear your family symbol, if you think it'd be ok..." She speaks sincerely.

"It'll look wonderful, dear. Although I'd caution against wearing it out too boldly, hm? The Croix family hasn't been in good standing for a long time."

"So I've heard. I wish there were a way I could help restore the name... Surely a family with someone like you in it can't be so bad..." It was a terribly naïve way of thinking, and yet it came from a wholly sincere place...

"My poor father made some mistakes, and people hold grudges." Nalima treats this offhandedly, her undisturbed demeanor beginning to return.

"Surely you've heard the gossip about me? They say I'm not even born of nobility. ...It's true. Why else would I be nearly ninety and still single? I know I'm stunning, everyone says so, but they can't start anything serious with a lowborn like myself. They'd be disowned!

"How awful... That your status would prevent anyone from seriously getting close to you..." Valentine seems to hold a soft sort of quiver to her voice as she says this that even she doesn't seem to realize is there.

Nalima smiles. "Gossip is gossip. I've done just fine for so long, don't worry about me. I won't be leaving you or my family for decades yet, darling."

"Oh, thank goodness!" She sighs in relief, probably a lot more than one would normally expect.

"What sort of hobbies do you have?" Nalima asks curiously.

"Me? I enjoy scenic walks, reading, and... Well, I've been into drawing, but I'm not terribly good at it..." She responds somewhat bashfully.
