Juliet laughs then and takes a chug of the Unknown and Questionable Top Shelf Liquor. She coughs a bit, and then walks back around from the bar towards the stereo. Are they the only people in the bar right now, apart from Hayden and Mason, who she has not failed to notice.
There isn't anyone else that you recognize-
Nope, no one.
"Is it insult to ask how experienced you are at this?"
"I've never been to a dance club before! I was home schooled before starting high school and... very sheltered. Meaning, I had shit enough control that my dad kept me pretty much on house arrest till I was thirteen, which meant no friends, which meant no bars. But. The drinking?" She laughs. "I have an older cousin who is the Worst Influence."
"I'm glad to be taking your dance virginity, then."
Your relationship with Isaac has increased!
A slow song comes on, and you realize you have a wonderful opportunity.
Yeah no. She laughs and moves over to the stereo. "Maybe something more.. upbeat?"
"Up to you, I'm an amateur."
"You say that now..." she changes it to a loud and tech-y sort of beat. And points at him in mock warning. "If you laugh..."
And she starts dancing. She's sort of ridiculous, but her natural grace shines through. She really needs to let off steam.
Isaac 'dances' too!
He mostly moves his arms from side to side.
Juliet smiles at him and moves closer, inviting him to touch, but not actually initiating it herself. She will encourage him to move more though.
He's moving, he's moving!
He dances around you, moving closer.
She lets him! Look how much fun she's having.
Your relationship with Isaac has decreased!
"I'm feeling thirsty over here, how about you?"
Juliet nods and stops dancing. "Yeah. You okay? We can go if you want."
She hesitates, and wants to ask the Narrator about it... but.
"I think I've danced enough for one night. We should do the shimmy and shake again sometime."
Juliet takes him on his word and laughs at his phrasing. "I had fun. Thank you for coming with me. I know we just met," from his perspective anyway, "but.. you've made me feel really welcome." She stands up on her toes and gives him a small kiss on his cheek. "Next time then?" And she steps away from him.
He watches you go.
You should head off to bed, since you have school in the morning!
After a good night's sleep, you're back in the hallways of your new school; it already feels like home.
Juliet sighs and gives up a little. "Please give me all my stats. And detailed stuff about Cora, Matt and Isaac's relationship do and don'ts."
Your Charm is 20!
Your Strength is 10!
Your Intelligence is 10!
Your relationship with Cora is 5! Your relationship with Isaac is 3! Your relationship with Matt is 8!
Cora wants to see those who can keep up with her, and who don't need coddling. Increase Strength and Intelligence, keep Charm low.
Isaac wants to see impulsiveness, daring, and recklessness. Increase Strength and Charm, keep Intelligence low.
Matt wants to see interesting conversation, literary references, assertiveness and a certain amount of coyness. Increase Intelligence and Charm, keep Strength low.
"Well, alright. Matt it is then." She pauses. "When I.. win and the game is over, will Matt just go back to being dead? And everyone else that was dead too?"
I can promise you nothing. I am only the remains of a mighty grove of trees, reduced to a single, dead stump.
Those who leave bodies behind can be revived, with the right means.
"...can you be revived?"
That would take blood. You are unwilling to pay the cost to heal me.
