07.05i: In Search of a Suit

Post by coldcandor » Sun Jan 20, 2013 2:44 pm

Continued from here.

Solten only has a moment to enjoy the feeling of relaxation and contentment as he exits the bath. As soon as the door closes behind him, an attendant in the hall speaks up:

"Solten, yes? We haven't formally met. I'm Sadie's new aide Priscilla. It's an honor. Will you be escorting my lady to the ball?" She says in a perfectly pleasant and sincere sounding tone.

Taken aback, Solten replies "An aide? She's taking to this royalty thing pretty quickly! Sorry, yes, I am Solten. It's a pleasure to meet you." He extends his hand in his now traditional greeting.

Due to Solten's at least amber psyche he picks a very slight moment of trepidation before she lets him take her hand in his. "You didn't answer my last question." She jokes, with the slightest bit of hesitation. "I'll assume the answer is a yes. If so you'll be wanting a suit appropriate to and in a complimentary fashion to my lady. It so happens her gown is of my design, so if you'll come this way, I can promise you, your suit will be perfect."

"Yes, yes the ball. Of course. I do indeed plan to be Sadie's escort, and I was just leaving in search of a suit. I swear people are psychic around here." He decides not to ask whether she knows this simply because she was listening at the door. Better to avoid the embarrassment on both sides.

"My lady is quite fond of you." She comments as she leads the way. "If I may be so bold as to ask, how did you and my lady first meet?" You notice yourself coming to a rather ornate door.

"I was invited by a couple Amberites to go on a bit of an adventure. It turned out to be much more of one than any of us expected... We met her at our first stop and the two of us became fast friends." He smiles, remembering the meeting at the graveyard. "I'll leave the details for her to tell, if she so chooses."

"Fair enough." She opens the door. Within is a long room on either side of which are rows of mannequins and racks filled with suits, dresses, and gowns of variously lovely types and shades. The room ends in a circular stand in back of which is a large lovely ornate mirror that strangely casts no reflection yet still shimmers as light reflects of it as it would any other mirror. When you enter she closes and locks the door. "Welcome to where the magic happens."

"Um." He says, waving his hand in front of the mirror. "Is it supposed to do that? Of course it is. I should know better by now." He glances around the room and takes a breath. "Alright, work your magic."

"Well for starters... undergarments... um... Strip please. Is harder for the mirror to function with a person fully clothed. So tell me about yourself. Where do you come from? Who is the mysterious Solten? A good suit is in tune with the wearer." The questions sound almost playful.

Solten gives her a sidelong glance, considering where she knows he just came from, then shrugs and strips. "Like many of the others, I come from a Shadow elsewhere. Even I don't really know where any more. I've learned as much about myself since I got here as I have anyone else. It's been... quite the adventure, to put it mildly." He thinks for a moment. "Many people say that coming to Amber is a new beginning for them. Well that is more true for me than any I've met. And I don't really want to return to that past life."

"Ooh you are mysterious." She jokes after a bit of hesitation. "So I understand you are the five of swords... fire, a shade of red." You find yourself in the mirror wearing a plain basic red shirt. "So new beginning you say? I know a bit about that. Coming to Amber helped me create a new life for myself as well. Something I think a lot of us have in common as you say. Why more than most though if I may ask? Hopefully nothing to do with that dreadful card you have. Either Dworken has something against you, or your secrets are really dark indeed." She teases jokingly. "No no, that shade is all wrong..."
