    Mein: Rhodes has pale whitish skin, elfin ears and deep emerald eyes. Thin black veins broach the surface of his skin like the roots of a tree emerging from the ground. Dark, broad leaves sprout from his wrists, ankles and temples, spreading around the back of his head. Deep red flowers bloom at the temples and wrists.

As the wind blows, unnerving whispers can be heard, always coming from a direction just out of one's field of vision.

    Following the end of the Charity event, late in the evening, Rhodes and Seraphina made their way over to a restaurant that meant a great deal to the Flowering. Lorenzo's was a small, traditional place, Checkered tablecloths, wicker baskets and mood lighting with candlelight. The hardening on his mask had worn off and there seemed to be peculiar chill and a breeze in spots there this evening, one that wouldn't fully go away - and only three of the clientele knew why.

    Rhodes had texted the address to Sonnie Wu on the way and hoped she would show. He found the Beast surprisingly pleasant company - buoyant Springs weren't normally his first choice in company, but there was a certain thoughtfulness when she put her mind to it.

    He pulled out the chair for Sera and dropped into another, smiling broadly.

    "Well, sweetheart? I think your charity evening was another resounding success, as if there was any doubt. Can I get you a drink?"

    Carring immediately on from here for continuity.

    Softly shimmering gold flakes catch the light whenever she moves, delicate gilded and diamond scales extenuate the luminescent sapphires that are her eyes. The ocean lives in Sera's eyes, perfectly cut sapphires, gleam in the light. Deeper shades always shifting like the tide. The scales trail up to her temples and forehead. Her hair reaches down her back, brushing the back of her knees, spun silver and gold. Very fine diamond dust falls loose from her hair when she moves, reflecting rainbows from the light. The scales on her hands are dulled by the simple fact that her hands are translucent.

    Cleanup hadn’t taken long at the shop, it never did. Nor did changing into something more appropriate for going out to dinner. There was practically a whole wardrobe in her office. She settled on a new white dress with flower embroidered lace. The back was open and laced up, plus there was an adorable little cutout in the front. Her hair was up in a special hair clip that a dear friend had given her.

    She was excited they were going to Lorenzo’s, it was where they had their first date. So it would always be special to her.

    Smiling, “Thank you.” Always the gentleman, she thinks as she reaches for his hand.

    “It was! And thank you again for coming and contributing to it.” Someday she’d tell him how important those events were. “Oh, sure. An ice tea?”

    An alluring young beauty, Sonnie Wu is 5'2" and lean-bodied, with a light, nimble step and eyes that seem to say "Hey, you know what would be fun?" Her reddish-brown hair often seems slightly unkempt, and an amused smile regularly plays on her lips. Sonnie is usually dressed casually or for outdoor activity. She almost always wears a pair of red leather tabi boots.

    To the eyes of Fae, Sonnie's feet are like those of a monkey: Toes as long as fingers, with one on each foot being opposable like a thumb. A long monkey tail protrudes from the base of Sonnie's spine, covered in hair the same shade as her head. It appears to be prehensile, and often moves to react to her mood and dances about when she speaks, like people who "talk with their hands." Finally, her brown eyes turn golden.

    Once she had the address, Sonnie googled the place to get a feel for what it was like. Seemed nice enough. After scrounging through her relatively small wardrobe (it would likely never come close to Sera's in size or variety), she came up with a pink number she couldn't remember buying. Must have been something she got at a thrift shop. Still, it was fun and colorful, so it suited her well. Shoes would be problematic. Finding a pair that matched the dress wasn't hard, but it was a pair she couldn't wear with her monkey feet. They were far too uncomfortable. Why did she even have these?

    Hardening her Mask took care of that issue.

    Thusly, when she arrived at Lorenzo's, gone were the tail, golden eyes and weirdly-long toes. The two Fairest, however, could surely still see her tail as a part of her shadow, if they looked for it.

    She smiled as the host took her to the table, and she gave the couple a little wave as she was shown to her seat. "I made it, guys! This is a nice place! Have you been here before?"

    Seraphina always found a way of looking effortlessly stunning. That there was a closet of clothes hidden in her office was not at all surprising.

    "Of course! I think I'll join you. That sounds delightful in this warm evening." He held her hand, sighing happily. The Nix really did make him relax in a way he never thought he could. The Autumn King would still scan around, naturally cautious, but always lingered on Sera's deep blue eyes, bringing back a smile to his lips.

    "Sonnie! What a nice little dress," Rhodes complements easily. "Drink?"

    Beverages ordered, the Fairest reclines lazily in the chair. "Once or twice. It's something of a favourite," he shares a knowing grin with Seraphina. "We're working our way through the menu. Sera and I both love Italian, and everything was so good the first time, we kept coming back."

    There was a wide happy smile as Sonnie came in, returning the wave.

    “So glad you did! What a great dress!” She gushed, “It looks amazing on you! Maybe I need to raid your closet.” it was a great color for the Beast. She then nods, “We have, the food is delicious!”

    When Rhodes smiled at her, she returned the gesture and squeezed his hand. Many happy memories were running through her mind.

    Nodding, “But it’s always hard to settle on one dish. Everything just looks so great.” It was a problem, too much good food. “And then it’s hard not to get what I’ve had before, because it was so good, but I want to try other things.” A dilemma.

    "Thank you! I found it hanging on a curtain rod!" she quipped as she sat down. Since iced tea seemed to be the order of the day, Sonnie also had one.

    She looked back and forth between the pair, and smiled, "Oh, so do you recommend anything in particular?" The 'Scrambler picked up her menu and started scanning the list.

    A nod to Seraphina, "The age old battle of ordering what you like versus ordering something new. Safety versus risk. I know this struggle well."

    Rhodes is scanning the menu. "Oh, several things. There was such a list, we ended up sharing the first time we came. I... suppose you might call it our first date?" He looks to Sera, smiling. "I had the cannelloni, and it was delectable. Sera had this delicious gnocchi as a starter." He sips his iced tea and looks at the glass. "I'm tempted by calzone. And... probably a glass of wine after this iced tea."

    He sets the menu down. "It's a shame Mable couldn't join us. I don't think we've eaten out with people before. It's good to be joined by company we enjoy." The Flowering sips the iced tea - it really was quite flavourful - and removes his jacket. "The Charity event really was fun. I had hoped to get Sera to sing one of her famously popular jazz numbers, but had to keep something to pay the rent." He smiles.

    “Hanging on a curtain rod you say? Seems you’re the one I need to be shopping with.” She did like the dress.

    “That’s a tough one. Everything I’ve had thus far has been amazing, it’d be hard to pick one thing to recommend.” She looked thoughtful glancing at the menu, “Though the cauliflower penne puttanesca was divine!” pointing at the menu, “I think I’ll try the bucatini with lemony carbonara.” Yup.

    Nodding to Sonnie, “Exactly! There should be a system to make choosing easier.” There should be something. “What's your answer to the struggle?” she asks.

    Returning the smile, “It was, wasn’t it?” happy memories. They all needed more of those. “Oh yeah! The gnocchi! I recommend that too.” When he mentions calzone, she nods, “That does look good.” The restaurant had too many options. At the mention of wine, she nods, “Perhaps a red?” she knew a little about wine. After all, she had spent a few years as a waitress.

    “It is. But maybe we can tease her out another time. She seems like such a nice person to hang out with.” She seemed so kind and caring. “And now that you mention it, we haven’t.” and she agreed, it was nice to have Sonnie with them. "Sonnie can be our test subject." she says with a sly smile and wink.

    Smirking, “The coffee shop isn’t a good place for jazz. If Sasha needs or wants me to perform at her club again, I’ll let you know.” A wink. "But the night was a success! I thank you both for helping with that!" a warm smile was offered to each.

    Nodding to Sera, she smiled, "Yeah, when you live on a budget, you gotta make second hand clothing stores your first stop."

    Listening to the couple's recommendations, Sonnie gazed intently at her menu, while also trying to mentally pronounce all the Italian words. "I see, I see. Maybe... maybe I'll just got for the ravioli. Or the calzone. Oh, garlic bread!" She looked back up at Sera and winked, "Oh, my answer is to get both." Because of course it was.

    "Yeah, Mabs is really nice. Her job is so cool, too." She smiled, then blinked in surprise at the Nix's comment, "Wait, test subject? There's no needles involved, is there?"

    Sonnie agreed with Rhodes, "Yeah, I'm glad we could provide some help to the shelter. That was really cool. I'm happy to help out anytime!"

    Rhodes eyes the bucatini. "Sounds delightful," he says with a smile. "I may have to steal a little... or perhaps a trade, as always? Definately Calzone for myself, with mixed olives and sundries tomatoes to start." The Flowering taps his chin with his fingers. "Red would favour mine, certainly, a light shiraz or such... but white, chilled, is so pleased in the heat. Let's see what Sonnie has, and perhaps we might share." He looks across to the Beast in askance.

    "There's only needles if you don't behave, Sonja," the Dread Lord says in a deadpan voice, an icy breeze running through the spines of all at the table. "But when it comes to socialising Sera and I are right first time, or one never sees it." A wry smile touches his lips.

    "It is a wonderful cause sweetheart. Your smile at seeing me surprise you is always thanks enough." His thumb rubs the back of her hand affectionatly. "I hadn't told her I was coming," He explains to Sonnie. "She loves surprises."
