After her tiring extra works she spared herself for the past month, Celia just wanted to do nothing more than to land face first against her pillow and shroud herself with her blanket, maybe even take a hibernating period of this time for a few years… or decades. Because of how much she’s done 3 days ago, she finally got her leave permitted by the hospital board, a 2 day leave, nothing too much, it’s not a long period, nowhere near a vacation worthy period but it meant everything to the Valkyr, considering she’s slowly going crazy and annoyed from smelling the sterilized hallway of the hospital every time she passed them. As a result, the Italian brunette had been spending the second day of her leave wisely. Yesterday, she visited an exhibition in Manhattan and did a side shopping to destress herself. If there was one thing that Cecilia Laterza likes to pride herself into doing, it was probably shopping, even when she probably wouldn’t have enough time to flaunt those new clothing when she’s just going to be stuck inside her office at the hospital nowadays, but still, a little fashion never hurts.
She had also gotten a few blonde highlights in her hair and trimmed them slightly so it wouldn’t look as bushy. The first thing Ce found herself doing the moment she woke up from her slumber was to reach out for her phone at the bedside table, checking the time displayed across the screen with her eyes squinted before yawning a few times. She allowed herself to bask in the good rest she’s gotten before climbing out of her bed and head over to the bathroom. She may have also had fun yesterday that resulted in a tiny hangover, nothing she couldn’t fix after a cold shower and a few aspirin. Much to her surprise, Celia didn’t party while she was in New York, she only stopped at a few bars to drink and maybe sink her fangs into one or two but she didn’t bring anyone home. So that was something. After spending half an hour in the showers, she came out with a towel wrapped around her hair and body, checking over the plans she had made today, it wasn’t until she saw the invitation to a charity gala on her bedside table that Ce finally remembered she was supposed to attend that one gala in Berlin.
She went over to her closet to see if she had anything that was formal enough or half as worthy to wear but returned to her bed with a frown, “New dress…” she muttered to herself and decided to drop by a certain boutique today to get a dress tailored. She’s never been there before but rumor has it, the Celestial Wayfinder is managing it so maybe she’d get to have a little chat on the way too. Once the Valkyr dried her hair using the blow dryer, she styled them using the hair curler but the prep for her hair didn’t take as long because if there was anything the Italian Valkyr knew to take care of, it’s also her hair. Dressed in a navy blue blouse and jeans, the female made a quick dash to grab her bag and tucked her phone in as she hummed to herself a soft tune, walking down the hallway and exiting the residence soon enough.
The engine was started before long and the Valkyr only had a coy smile gracing her burgundy lips as she drove the car to the city center, eyes glazing over the address she had keyed into the GPS a few times. It went on for a while until she caught sight of the boutique across the block after a few minutes of searching. After quickly parking her car, she noticed that two people just exited while giggling to themselves, she wondered if this was the right boutique and contemplated for a while as she entered. That’s when she saw the Wayfinder working behind the counter, “Are you busy or should I come another time?” she exclaimed coolly. "Though I am in a desperate need for a dress..."
She allowed an easygoing smile to cross her lips in response to Ce’s question and she shrugged her shoulders nonchalantly “Call it a hunch or an observation even” she commented and grinned softly, there was a charismatic nature to Ce which was hard to explain, people might worry about what she might do but there was also this respect she commanded that was hard to even question. “Sometimes I feel like I should have had at least a guide or a manual or something” she joked and shook her head slightly “I have my amulet but it doesn’t allow me to figure out the right and wrong way to do things, that I had to guess” she really hoped she was on the right track.
“I try” she responded and smiled softly, just because the faction came first didn’t mean she entirely forgot about herself in the process but it was always a case of priorities, she would never do something detrimental to her tribe, even if it meant she had to give up her own happiness in the process. “Perhaps it’s funny but...I guess it goes back to the age-old balance of dark and light, my kind are pure light while your kind are allies with shadows and come from death, together we kinda cancel one another out” didn’t explain why that made them stronger but it made sense to her why it was valkyr.
“I think you know whether people would rather be alive than dead” she commented in a soft voice “People who lost their lives in accidents far before their time, those people deserve a second chance at life” she was sure even there would be some people who don’t like the alternative but honestly she believed the was a certain honor in being able to save people like that, even if it was a grey line. “If I was young and had my whole life ready to unfold and then I was gone...yes...if I was an old woman who had lived her life happily, no” she answered candidly, it really depended on the person and the circumstances.
She bit her lip harshly as the dancer moved, her eyes moving between her and Ce from time to time, she had never had anyone dance for her lip this before, male or female, she wasn’t sure how exactly she felt about it. When Ce asked if she wanted to quench her curiosity her gaze moved to the floor for a moment “What if I said that curiosity wouldn’t be satisfied with a stranger?” don’t get her wrong, these girls were very good at what they did but Phe wasn’t the type to hand over trust easily.
