'Sidora smiles at Ms Adareif as they walk. "Well. I think that went well?"

Permalink

Ekuni seems confused.

Permalink

"Uh, back there? On the roof? We got in, got what we came for, cleaned up the evidence and got out without anyone being any the wiser?"

Permalink

"Oh," Ekuni reponds, and then, "yes, I suppose it did."

Permalink

"It's definitely preferable to the alternatives," Epimetheus agrees calmly.

Permalink

'Sidora lets them fall into silence at they walk - he doesn't really have anything else to say, and it's clear that he and Epime are long since used to existing in companionable silence, even in the middle of a crowd.

Permalink

Ekuni seems content to walk with them in silence.

Permalink

Eventually though, they make it to a clothing store. "Have at," 'Sidora says with a vague hand wave.

Permalink

It is difficult to find things in her size, let alone ones that also met her other requirements (mobility, at least moderate durability, ability to blend in), but scouring the various sections eventually yields a few sets of clothing, most of which are only one or two sizes too big.

Permalink

"That everything?" 'Sidora asks as he starts to lead the way to the till.

Permalink

Ekuni nods. "This should be enough."

Permalink

"I mean, if there's other stuff you want, we're not exactly on a schedule here? We can go find it?"

Permalink

She considers, and then admits: "Additional outfits would be useful for --" she changes what she was going to say, mindful of the other customers "-- flexibility."

Permalink

"Alright then. Let's pay for these and go find another store?"

Permalink

Ekuni nods, and follows him to the checkout.

Permalink

'Sidora takes care of paying, chatting a little with the cashier - not enough to be memorable, but enough to draw a smile from the teenager.

"Epime?" he asks quietly.

Permalink

"Yes I have a route to another store, sir," she confirms, sending it to e92ada0f again. "Prometheus is going to meet us there."

Permalink

Ekuni examines the route, and nods, sharply.

Permalink

Epimetheus takes the bags, and leads the way - without actually appearing to lead the way, and that's definitely a practiced manoeuvre.

Permalink

Ekuni -- takes a moment to notice what Epimetheus is doing, files that away, and continues following the route.

Permalink

The next store is more of a workwear store - a lot of hardy clothes that, nevertheless, give a fairly good ease of movement. Sizing might be a bit more difficult here, but she'll probably still be able to find things that are close enough.

Permalink

The sizing is more difficult, but it is easier to find clothes with acceptable freedom of movement -- she finds a smaller collection this time, but not dramatically so.

Permalink

Prometheus turns up as Anesidora is taking care of paying, and he falls in beside Epimetheus, the two of them browsing through the selection of clothing themselves, although with less intent - probably just as a cover for the two of them doing continued perimeter checks.

Permalink

"Alright, home time I think," 'Sidora says, tilting his head at Ms Adareif to make sure she's happy with that.
