((Setting some background here, Ark))
Ever since being ignored by the man she had…physically fallen for in pictures….she’d realized some things. ((Gentaro, it was mentioned in some previous RPs)) Why did she hold on to the princess title? It’s not like she was princess of anything anyway, even if Miu and Nadeshiko thought so. ((Referring to the Solving the problem thread with Miu and Nade-chan)) So…it was with some trepidation that she had sought out a barber, ((Thread with Kazari)) checked the rates on haircuts, and then gone shopping. Normally, she’d worn long, flowing dresses….that had hidden things about her….that would change soon, though.
No, today was a new day….She wasn’t a princess of a far-away planet that had been blown to shreds…she wasn’t the last remaining member of a team who had broken apart once the Zangyack were defeated, who had gone their seperate ways, one of them in particular ((Luka)) having broken her heart. She was Ahim…and it was her wish to go into the city…to an aquarium. For now, she wore her still-long hair down, and wore her usual long flowing dress ((like from Gokaiger)), as she walked up to the Aquarium and gained admittance inside by paying the admission fee.
Mezool wasn’t sure what made her decide to visit the aquarium. Maybe it was a longing to feel at peace somewhere away from Gamel and Miharu, maybe it was because she thought she could use it in future lessons with Miharu. hatever the reason, she found herself walking down the empty hallways, fading into the shadows every time a human passed her by.
It was one in particular that caught her attention, and she paused to look at her in curiosity. This particular human woman had a certain air about her that seemed…different from the rest. More powerful, less having to do with physical than in the way she carried herself. With a self-assurance Mezool could remember seeing in King OOOs so many centuries ago…
Ahim did indeed exude confidence this day…walking along, a heart-shaped smile showing as she regarded the beautiful animals…she had a feeling that someone was looking at her, but brushed it off as nothing, wanting to feel at peace…and maybe mentally heal a little.
She was also short-ish for a human, only 5 feet 2 inches when not wearing heels…she went up to around 5 feet 4 inches when she did. This time, she wasn’t wearing heels, but was instead looking around the aquariums…and Ahim had also heard of the gift shop having little animal plushies, hoping that they had an orca one.
Silent as a ghost, Mezool continued to trail the intriguing woman, shifting into her human form and walking up to her. She wasn’t sure what she could gain from talking to this woman, but there wasn’t much else Mezool cared to do at the moment.
Crossing her arms, Mezool focused her gaze on a small glittering school of fish, and quietly said “Hello.”
“Hello.” Ahim replied pleasantly, her back to Mezool’s form, focused on a larger fish further out. ”This world’s amphibian animals are beautiful.” she gave, slowly turning around, after that statement, to see who she might be speaking with.
Nodding approvingly, Mezool studied this human with mild interest. This woman was very pretty, and for half a moment she contemplated stealing her appearance for her own. Miharu might complain at first, but eventually he would learn to accept it. Gamel would not care. However, she was more interested in the mind behind that beautiful face. “They are indeed. I trust you feel the same about the fish and oceans of the world?”
“I do, since I have a ship that can sail the oceans of this world, as well as in space.” Ahim replied, with a heart-shaped smile. ”But…I have forgotten my manners.” she said, studying this beautiful person that stood before her. She was different from other people on this planet….having a strange sense of power…and somewhere in the treasure chest, a Blue key would be glowing…but Ahim wouldn’t know of it. ”I’m Ahim de Famille, it’s nice to meet you. Might I have the honor of knowing your name?” she asked softly.
“Kasumi,” Mezool lied easily, flashing her a smile that was far too perfect to be genuine. This human might prove as entertaining as Miharu…
Ahim’s eyes narrowed slightly at the smile, but only for a second, before she smiled back. ”That’s a nice name.” she said, suspecting the smile, but showing that she could slip back into a facade too. ”Shall we walk together and explore further in this aquarium?” Ahim asked.
