In a good mood, the faint taste of oats and chocolate chips of the gronola bar she had earlier been given by Ethan. She was settled on the couch, Dolly Miss Molly safely placed on her narrow lap. Stomach full, Margot felt free to relax. She snuggled into the leather of the chair with a smile.

Penelope waltzed into the common room like a ghost, her brown waves flying behind her. A small smile was still on her lips, and the bruised, untouched little rosebuds were still red and raw from Zach.

Content with herself, and yet torn on the inside, Penelope acknowledged the younger girl with a nod and settled down on a leather chair.

"Hello," Margot greeted kindly, feeling bold since she had talked with the nerdy Ethan. Well, he thought he was nerdy. Margot found him brilliant. Dolly found him useful.

Dark blue gaze studied the girl, along with the doll on her arms. Penelope smiled; she had been opening up to many more people lately. Could Zach be part of that?

"Hi."

"How are you today?" The words felt flimsy and clumsy in her mouth. Uncomfortable. She wasn't used to being so sweet and open.

Head of brown waves was cocked to the side. "I'm good. Yourself?"

"Fairly well, thank you for asking." Still, she sounded too formal, very stiff. She ran one translucent hand through dark brunette hair.

A few moments of awkward silence, and then Penelope leaned fireweed and offeres a hand. "I'm Penelope."

[Heehee, fireweed. Sounds HP-ish. xD]

"Margot," came the reply, along with a firm handshake. "Abd this is Dolly Miss Molly, but she says she wants you to call her Dolly, like everyone else." Margot assisted Dolly with her hand, and offered it to Penelope.

A small smile. "Hello, Dolly and Margot." The imaginary girl shook Dolly's hand.

Looking pleased, Margot helped Dolly place her hand back. "Dolly thinks we share the same floor. Do you know if we do?"

"I'm not sure. I'm on the first floor."

"I'm more of a high-security patient," Margot reasoned with a dainty shrug, glancing at Dolly with a perplexed expression. Dolly Miss Molly was rarely wrong.

Domonic lay sprawled along the soft leather couch, half-absorbed in a book he had gotten from the library. In truth, he barely knew what he was reading about, only that he needed to somehow pass the time until Cadenza would need him. Not before or after, because she had a special scheduler he couldn't ruin.

The front-- not the back-- door was unlocked, and Yvette came inside surrounded by the hardly seen light of day. Shut as quickly as possible, th girl locked the door behind her and stuffed her keys back into her pocket.

Wearing a simple set of jeans and a white t-shirt, the green ribbons hung down from their spot in her hair to lay across her chest. Yvette smiled at Domonic and took a seat across from him.

Delighted to have a distraction from the book, which had originally held as a horrible distraction from seeing his patient, Domonic tossed the book aside. He'd return it later. He returned Yvette's smile, and began to fumble with the string on his white sweatshirt. "Hey, Yvette. How's it going?"

A shrug of her lithe shoulders. "It's fine. Yourself?"

Dainty, creamy little hand found the green ribbon laying across we breastbone and began to toy with the sheer fabric.

"It's going good. Got a book from the library, met Kalin's patient." Domonic shrugged, twirling the smooth string of his sweatshirt around his finger.

Yvette smirked. "Sounds fascinating. Tell me more?"

*~Silvypoo~* (Chaser of Artemis) (Silverfur) | 9995 comments Mod
Domonic rolled his eyes in good-nature. "So fascinating, I know, though I'm sure not as fascinating as the details of your day. Spill?"

A light shrug. "Went to the circus, saw the show, came back."

*~Silvypoo~* (Chaser of Artemis) (Silverfur) | 9995 comments Mod
Domonic nodded. "Thought so. Much more interesting." The sweatshirt string went into his mouth.

"So you think," Yvette said with a roll of her eyes. "I can't look at it without critiquing them."

*~Silvypoo~* (Chaser of Artemis) (Silverfur) | 9995 comments Mod
"So what was there to criticize this week? No tigers? Clown wasn't fat enough? The cotton candy didn't stick to your mouth well enough?"

A light slap. "Shut up."

Yvette smiled, though. "They're bull** was the dumbest I've ever seen, the flyers nearly dropped someone and I'm quite sure their fat lady was hardly 320."

[**"bull" as in elephant, not the cow with horns.]

[ :3 ]

A over dramacised wince, and Domonic rubbed where he had been lightly slapped, a pout forming on his coral pink lips. "Oowwwww, Yvette. You hurttttt."

"Well, I'm sorry try weren't as professional as you'd like them to be. But hey, I got an idea! We'll stuff you with food every hour, then you can be their new fat lady." He poked her stomach lightly. "You're not that far away. What are you now? A whopping one hundred pounds?"

"Hardly," Yvette pouted, crossing her arms over her tiny stomach. "It's not my fault that I'm built for flying."

A small smirk was added. "Besides. I'm not going back."

Liar, she thought to herself.

"Until next week," Domonic said knowingly. Unless it proves to be too tempting, as always. "Then you'll come to me with more complaints about the /next/ circus that comes along."

"Nu-uh."

Yvette argued helplessly; she knew it was true.

Domonic rolled his eyes. "You can't win and you know it, Yvette. I bet you're gonna steal raw meat from the kitchens tonight to feed the starving tigers." He grinned, string out of his mouth, and was now plucking at it with his fingers.

A gentle shove. "Shut up. It's not my fault."

Smile was wide, however, and Yvette giggled. "Blame my mother for the tigers."

"Fine, I will. Yvette's mother, mother of Yvette, I blame you for making me suffer by giving your daughter something to come find me and complain about me to! Kill somebody and feed the damn striped kitties in the backyard!" He turned to look at Yvette, gray eyes blinking once, twice, three times. "Ok, I blamed your mother. Anything else?"

Grin grew wider, and contagious giggles continued. "Stop it, stop it, I can't breathe."

((Mmm... Faded. I shall post~))

Weeks had passed since Zach's departure. Penelope found herself sprawled across the sofa in front of the fireplace, enjoying the heat. She always came here after her showers-- it dried her hair faster and warmed her up from the ice-water.

Long brown hair was tied up, and bruised body was cloaked in jeans and a t-shirt. Water dripped down her back from her hair, and she shivered slightly.


Thera (therjolras) | 2546 comments Closing the front door behind him, Zach waved at the receptionist before removing his coat and hat, hanging them on the coat tree and trotting down the hall. He hadn't seen Penelope in ages, and it made him vaguely excited.

Entering the common room, he immediately brightened at the sight of his girlfriend sprawled on the couch. "Penny!"

The imaginary girl glanced up lazily, then smiled when she recognized Zach. "Hey you," she said with a smile, opening her arms for a hug.


Thera (therjolras) | 2546 comments "Guess who?" Accepting the hug, Zach brushed her lips with his and smiled. "It's good to see you, Penny."

"You too. How was home?"

Head of wet mocha locks was rested against his shoulder, and pale blue eyes looked up to meet his.


Thera (therjolras) | 2546 comments "It was fine. Mom and dad were glad to see me after so long." He nodded, smiling and running his fingers through her wet hair.

"I bet they were. Was it a nice break?"


Thera (therjolras) | 2546 comments "It was a nice break, but I just came to visit again. Not here forever, you know." Zach shook his head, smiling broadly.


message 94: by Isobel , Have no fear of perfection-- you'll never reach it. (new)

Isobel  Stark | 7549 comments Mod
"I know, I know. You explained it to me countless times. I get it," Penelope teased with a little giggle


Thera (therjolras) | 2546 comments "So are you glad to see me?" He pressed, lifting her chin so that her eyes met. A chuckle escaped his own lips as well, lips hard-pressed to keep from hers.


message 96: by Isobel , Have no fear of perfection-- you'll never reach it. (new)

Isobel  Stark | 7549 comments Mod
"No," she said, sarcasm heavy. "I've been without you for weeks and I'm not at all happy to see you."


Thera (therjolras) | 2546 comments "Let me make it up to you then," he replied with an almost-fake apologetic tone before his lips connected with hers.


message 98: by Isobel , Have no fear of perfection-- you'll never reach it. (new)

Isobel  Stark | 7549 comments Mod
Arms trailed their way behind his neck as lips met, and Penelope smiled against his kiss. Long fingers, with nails painted a pearly-white, toted with pale hair at the nape of his neck.


Thera (therjolras) | 2546 comments His own hand trailed up to her chin, cupping it gently as ran the other up to tangle itself in her hair.

After a moment, he broke the kiss gingerly. "We may need to go somewhere more private. Who knows what would happen if someone walked in on us."

Isobel  Stark | 7549 comments Mod
A little laugh. "Like anywhere in here is private?"

Penelope stood, though, and she took hold of Zach's hand. "C'mon. They never come in my room."

((and travel! XD))
