Kyrea laughed at the snobby rich kid remark, she knew all too well had that went, having grown up in High Society, the pressures it demanded on one and such, parents trying to make their kids into what Looked Good instead of what was right. Oh, yes she’d been through all of that and understood perfectly well.
“Oh yes…” She smiled “We have a few horses and loads of dogs.” She replied and wasn’t lying, though the dogs were more there for protection than as pets of course, vicious mean things that would attack anyone who tried to cross into the estate that didn’t belong.
“So you really DO know what I’m talking about when I say thank goodness to that.” She decided to comment. “Oh, and let’s not forget about pleasing the parents! Ha! I tell ya, sometimes… “ She left it hanging
Stacey rolled her eyes with a sigh. "Don`t even get me started on my parents." She said, her voice turning more and more like the voice of a normal teenager.
She suddenly felt very optimistic; Kyrea was being really nice, and they seemed to have a lot in common. They both came from a good source of money and had obssesive parents. It also sounded like Kyrea wasn`t one hundred percent in line as far as her parents were concerned, and Stacey knew exactly what that was like, having had a huge fightwith her mom before leaving.
Kyrea let go of a half laugh at Stacey’s comment about her parents. It was true though and she totally understood. “Ya no kidding..” She stated and left that statement hanging as well. She knew Stacey knew what she was talking about.
“So, have you found anything interesting about Celesta as of yet that you might have a question about?” She then asked. “I’ve been here for 16 years and so know the place pretty well by now.” She asked her as she looked around the park at the people walking on by. It had been of course quite a few more years than 16 but hey, she was supposed to be a teenager during the day after all.
Stacey smiled then looked around as Kyrea spoke. "No, I don`t really have any questions. I mean, there`s a bar, stores, a park, food; what else would a person need?" Her question sounded light and carefree, but Stacey knew very well that there would be a lot more.
There were always assassins, thieves, and mages everywhere. They were everywhere; Stacey knew that well, she herself was the offspring of an assassin and a thief, then hired as a spy.
Kyrea thought for a few moments, truly, what else could a teen girl need? Then a smile etched the corners of her lips once more and she turned to the other girl and gave a sort of giggle.
“Hot guys to look at?” She winked at the other, her expression becoming a bit excited. “A beach to lay on or explore or at least attend so that one can be invited to the parties of said hot guys.” She then finished and laughed.
Hanging out with this girl, should she take interest in these things was going to be fun.
Kyrea’s smile widened as the questions began to fly and she nodded over and over again as to each question.
“Yes, there is a trail leading down to a popular beach in Sea City Park down by the docks and theater of course there is and it is live and then there is the local library that anyone is welcome to use. The librarian who works there is something of a silly person and really relaxed on how things are run too; it’s a good hang out when you’re board.” She answered all at once. “And the beach is loaded with guys, I mean LOADED.” She went on, giving yet another giggle.
Stacey smiled and giggled. "Wow, how loaded can one beach be?" She asked airily. There wasn`t a beach in the town she had come from, but was used to being in water from small rivers. She had been able to swim since she was three, swimming being an obvious thing that her parents required her to learn, along with fencing, using a full sword, and a series of martial arts.
"How big is the beach?" She asked, her voice getting slightly softer. Her large eyes were blue and glassy, almost reflective.
Kyrea thought about it for a moment and then grinned. “Oh it’s stocked, believe me.” She replied to the boy question. “The size well, it is a rather large beach really, just that it IS along the Ocean so you have to be careful and watch the tide if you walk too far down it, or you might be finding yourself using that swimming knowledge.” She giggled. “But seriously, I got trapped before, not a fun thing to happen.” She then laughed, remembering. “Well, I guess it is funny later.” She stated.
Kyrea was getting excited now too. Not only had she befriended Titus, The White Master Mage of the land, but now, she had someone to enjoy the younger side of things with as well. She was honestly quite happy at this moment.
Kyrea’s teen years had been all but taken away from her and so she had never really had the chance to be one when she was turned and now, after over 800 years, she had the chance to be that teen she never got to be. Stacey really had no idea how happy she had made the Vampire Queen, nor what protection she had just secured in the city.
Stacey smiled. "I almost got pulled under from a river current." She offered, her only comparison to the tides. "Thankfully there was a tree growing right on the edge of the river and I caught onto its branches." She shivered slightly from the memory.
She had been nine when it had happened, and being the strong swimmer that she was, she didn`t think about the pull the water would have on her thin body.
"Are there many guys here? I`m guessing so, since you said the beaches were loaded, but I just want to be sure." She said with a mischevious grin.
“Oh, I bet that was scary.” Kyrea commented to her going under comment.
The little Queen then smiled a bit devilishly. “Oh yes indeed, there are a lot of guys here. Loads to have your way with.” She giggled at her comment. Though it was a joke, it was at the same time not a joke. If there was one thing she did remember from what teen years she had, it was all the guys, or at the time known as suitors, she had at her deposal to make absolutely miserable.
“Oh and during the daylight hours and usually up until about eight at night, the Sky High has time for teens to hang out there too, if you like dancing and that sort of thing. Otherwise, it is usually the beach that is the biggest hang out.” She added to her knowledge of the live in Celesta
Stacey nodded, still smiling. "Thanks, you know, I think I`ll be here in Celesta for a while." She said softly, looking around at the different plants around her. For the little she knew about this city, she liked it a lot. Sure, all places had their down-sides, but this seemed like a pretty neat place.
"Is there any place around here that I could go to mabey have some fun? Like, not bad fun, fun fun." As soon as the words came out of her mouth, she wished she hadn`t sounded quite so stupid.
Kyrea thought a moment as to what the girl might have meant by fun, fun. And s she looked about at their surroundings, she thought. “Well, like I said, the Sky High is open right now and that’s usually fun, there’s darts and pool and dancing and just hanging out, I honestly don’t know, it would depend on what kind of fun you’re looking for.” She said, still thinking. “I guess it would all depend on what you really consider fun then wouldn’t it?” She asked. “As for me, I tend to like hanging out and watching people, though I think that the bad fun you might be talking about could get interesting…” She left it hanging.
Kyrea was ready for this but at her words, Drannis raised a brow and sighed. This was not going to make guarding her much easier.
Stacey suddenly laughed loudly. "Ah, I don`t believe I have any interest for that kind of fun." She chimed, her eyes gleaming. "I think I`ll stick to hanging out and darts and stuff." She giggled. Wow. She had had a very serious relation ship, but not quite as serious as some people though, even though the boy involved was now dead...
"What do you do for fun? Besides watching people." She asked, tilting her head slightly so she could rest her chin in her hand.
“Oh, well I like to play pool and shoot darts, read, I tend to read a lot.” She told her and the big man’s eyes rolled slightly. “Ok, ok I LOVE books.” She admitted. “And well, just walking around sometimes too, that’s probably why I know so much about the city, I spend a lot of time in exploration.” She returned and smiled.
Kyrea didn’t really know what the other meant by bad fun still, she was thinking mischievous fun, something she hadn’t had much chance to get into, save perhaps at night in her true vampire form where she tended to get into some pretty dangerous fun, but that was an entirely different story.
