Big Grin [Closed/Private] Gone Shopping [COMPLETED: 8/30/13]
< Characters > < Location>
    Town near the Saloon
< Summary >
    It's in the morning and Taru went into town to go clothes shopping, as usual. Shiori is also in town, looking for parts with which to tinker, as he does. AND THEN THEY MEET. Assuming this takes place some point after Pre-season Intermission 1.

--------------------------------------------------------

Taru arose early in the morning as she typically did- just as the sun was rising. It was clockwork, and her body was never late in waking her for the start of the day. She'd still been staying in one of the private rooms on the second floor of the saloon at this point, about a week or so after being hired as a waitress for the Sassy Saloon. Sassy indeed- not only its employees, but it's patrons as well. Then again...

The bubbly aurin was quick to get dressed, slipping on some wrinkled clothing that had been strewn about the floor- definitely not the neatest or most organized individual. A small robot covered in leaves had been following her around the room as she dashed from article of clothing to article of clothing. Underwear; check. Shorts; check. Shirt? Taru spun on her heel and found the sleeveless button hanging over the edge of the bed.

Once she'd found everything, she slipped on her foot wraps- the only real shoes she wore were the heels required for her job- and threw a lightweight jacket over her. As she descended the staircase to the main level, she would address whoever was there that was familiar, and then proceed to step outside. The door was open.. and what a nice day it was. She inhaled the Alorgoc morning air and took another step forward. Soon enough she was walking down the road heading into town, with a little bush-creature in towe and it was going to take the pair a good amount of time before she got there.

RE: [Private] Gone Shopping
Shiori had already gotten a head start that morning, wearing combat boots and long pants and no shirt as he bathed in the sun's rays on the patio of a nearby restaurant as he had a glass of tea in front of him with his robe-like coat hanging on his chair. He was tinkering with a serving-bowl sized robot as he had a few parts out on the table and was working on putting wires in place before taking a long draft of his tea.

Sighing and rubbing his forehead with the back of his hand, he looked around and realized with a start that he'd been there for a while. A good hour or two at least as indicated by the twenty four glasses arranged on his table. Looking up he saw a smiling waitress offering him another glass and a sandwich. "Thank you very much. Would you mind watching this a moment?" He then dashed inside without waiting for a reply to use the restroom.

Coming back out he paid the waitress some money as thanks for standing guard before getting back to work after taking a few bites of his sandwich. "I wonder if anyone will come around this way today..." He mused aloud to himself as the man did what he did best, working on a new robot he was building.

RE: [Private] Gone Shopping
Taru didn't have to wander through the streets looking for the store she knew she was looking for- no, she memorized where it was! No little lost aurin, today! The boutique owner welcomed her with a familiar smile, which Taru eagerly returned. It seemed like every other morning or so that she would visit the boutique, even if there wasn't anything new made by the tailor herself. Still, the rack of hand-me-downs seemed to grow by the day, and that is what she would be looking through today. There was a rather large leather coat- suited for a man- but she decided to try that on, along with a pair of shorts. This woman and her shorts. Did she ever wear pants? ... Nah.

A couple of hours were spent in the small boutique- not surprising for an indecisive shopper such as herself. When she finally emerged from the shop, she carried a small bag with her. All that time and she only purchased a few things. There was a smile on her face nontheless- the one that seemed to be ever-present. After shopping, she often got breakfast at the quaint little cafe just up the road. So, she rounded a corner and continued on her path. She came upon a waitress standing beside a table that had more than enough.. junk on top of it. Taru gave the woman a smile, then headed inside the cafe.

When she came out, the table had become occupied once again.. and by a familiar face too! Taru immediately perked up and skipped to the table side, grinning bright down at him. "Hello, Shiori! What are you doing here so early?" her enthusiasm had no limit, and right after she'd asked her question, she pulled over a chair and plopped down across from him, holding her shopping bag in her lap. The little creep robot that he'd made for her had been following her around all the while, right at her heels. It circled around the table and seemed to stop at Shiori's feet more than once.

As the young man was still tinkering away, he didn't actually register Taru being nearby until she sat down and the the creep robot stood on his foot. Looking up, he took in her appearance, the bag of clothing, and the robot on his foot before glancing at the one he was working on at the table in front of him. "Oh, hello Taru. Good to see you again and out of work for once. Looking beautiful as always." The man teased, giving her a soft, friendly smile.

Reaching over to take a bite of his sandwich and drink at his tea some more he sighed contentedly before looking up at the morning sky, choosing not to answer for the moment. Closing his eyes Shiori stretched, his spine making a few popping sounds as he got a bit more comfortable in his position before putting his tools down and looking at Taru again.

"Well, to answer your question, I enjoy working either here or at home in the early mornings. It provides a sense of peace so I can just go into 'The Zone' so-to-speak as I work my robotic magic." Looking down at the little creep robot, he gave it a curisotry once-over before looking back at Taru. "Speaking of, would you like me to give your little fuzzy companion a tune up? Just to check for any issues that may or may not have appeared in his...sorry, her system?" The man corrected himself after remembering Taru told him she changed the little robot's gender.

As he begun to speak, she kept her smile and brought the sandwich she'd bought in the cafe to her mouth, taking a small bite of it. Her eyes scanning the contents strewn about the table, and focused back on his when he questioned her. "If you believe Yucca is in need of a tune-up, then I would have to say yes. Just to make sure she's healthy and safe, mhm!" Another bite was taken out of her food as she watched the human with great interest. "And what do you mean by.. 'into the zone'?"

RE: [Private] Gone Shopping
Shiori just waved his hand absentmindedly as he finished off yet another tea and his sandwich. "It's not so much as I believe she needs one. It was more a courtesy extended to a friend to ease any worries you may have had. Preemptive measures if you will." The man nodded to himself a moment before closing his eyes. "So you want to see my zone do you?" He asked mostly to himself but loud enough for her to hear.

A few breaths later, his eyes snapped open and he just "moved". His hands and arms in constant motion, there was no break in flow, no wasted movement as he started to finish building the machine he had been working on. From the look on his face, the rest of the world didn't exist. It was just Shiori, his tools and parts, an his machine to be built.

Taru glanced at Yucca for a moment, then looked back to Shiori as the little critter skittered to her side. "I couldn't say that I have any worries, no." she stated firmly. An ear twitched at the question he asked, and she examined him very carefully. In watching him work so effortlessly, she leaned forward in her seat a bit, unable to avert her eyes. Looking between him and his work, it surely was as if there was nothing else around him, and he was the only one there.

The aurin giggled happily and sat back to continue the consumption of her food while she watched him in silence so he could concentrate.

Shiori stayed working until he finished the robot. Looking it over critically, the young man turned it over before nodding to himself and setting it on the ground and turning it on. It spun around for a bit, looking every bit like a shiny upside down bowl before beeping and starting to clean the outside floor.

Smiling and turning to Taru, he gave the aurin a hug. "Alright! One cleaning bot built and ready to go."

RE: [Private] Gone Shopping
The sandwich she'd been nibbling on was gone by this point and examined his work with great intrigue. Her long, pointed ears twitched at the curious sounds of the metal tinkering, and when he put the finished bot on the floor, Yucca immediately skittered over to follow it around. She chuckled at the scene, and leaned into the hug Shiori had given her. "That's really amazing! And you can just do that out in the open without a workshop or anything!" the aurin clapped her hands briefly, and then hugged him back, whether he was still hugging her or not. "What's it for, anyway?" She questioned curiously as she watched it crawl around the floor with a very curious creeper robot behind it.

RE: [Private] Gone Shopping
Shiori leaned into her return hug graciously as he watched the two robots scoot around the patio. Turning to regard her, he blinked a bit as the bubbly aurin was still very close to his face. "Well, I noticed all the messes that gets made in the Saloon, especially by that Dylan guy, so I made a cleaning robot to help out." And true to its name, the robot had made the patio clean and shiny, before shutting down and staying in place next to Taru's feet.
