Scenario:Metera and Sutera - Sister Shopping
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Sutera and the others join Metera on one of her spur-of-the-moment shopping trips. Sutera is exhausted by the crush of people and takes her leave, only to return later with a pastry for her older sister. Metera smiles at what feels like approval from Sutera. It would seem two birds of different feathers can get along after all.
It is late into the night before (Captain) and company finish the mission they'd picked up in town.
The client couldn't be more pleased. They prepare a room in the inn for the crew to relax and put their feet up.
Lyria: Munch, munch... Gulp. Thank you so much! That was delicious!
Vyrn: Hehe! We even get food! Now that's what I call quality service!
Metera: Yawn... Morning.
Vyrn: Morning? Whoa now... You do realize it's almost noon, right?
Lyria: That reminds me... I haven't seen Sutera yet today. Has she gone out already?
Metera: Nah, she's still holed up in her room. Probably still knocked out. She never was much of a morning person.
Lyria: What? Sutera... really? I had no idea...
The party shares a pleasant conversation while they wait for Sutera to wake up.
Sutera: Sorry for being late! You must have been waiting for so long... I don't know what to say...
Vyrn: Haha! You're always so dramatic, Sutera. You work your butt off all the time! You're allowed to sleep in once in a while.
Metera: You have got to be kidding me! You'd never let me slide if I did something like that!
Metera: Oh! Hey, Sutera! You got a bad case of bedhead. I can't believe you'd present yourself like this...
Sutera: S-sorry, Metera... You're right. A guardian should take better care of their appearance...
Metera: That's totally not what I... Oh, forget it! Hey, (Captain). I'd love to do some shopping.
Metera: How about we go on a little date? It'll be f-u-n, fun, fun, fun!
Metera: And you. We gotta do something about those clothes. Why don't you come with?
Metera: All right, then! I'm gonna go and get ready! You'd better be ready to go too, Sutera!
Sutera: Wha? No thanks, Metera... I don't know all that much about fashion. I think I'll just stay here and do some training...
Metera: Let's go, go, go!
And so the party find themselves half-dragged into the town market on an impromptu shopping spree.
Metera: What? Oh, wow! You don't see a color like this every day!
Metera: Tell me, (Captain). Does it make me look wowzers or uggo?
Metera: Oh. But, tsk. This design... Nope! Let's put it in the no pile!
Metera: Oh! Check out that makeup shop. C'mon, Sutera!
Sutera: Metera! You don't need to be in such a rush! The market's not going anywhere!
Metera: How could you say that? Shops do sell out of stuff, you know!
Metera: Oh, that is just toooo cute! Close your eyes, Sutera! Excuse me! Attendant? I'd like to try this one!
Metera: Hm... You know, you think you'd worry more about getting sunburned with how pale you are...
Metera: Nope. No good! Get rid of the lipstick! We'll try this one!
Sutera: Metera... please. I'm not a big fan of makeup...
Metera: Well, now's the time to fix that! And a little foundation! Now what to do with those eyebrows...
Vyrn: Wow... Ms. Shameless treats her sister like a darn toy.
Lyria: Hm... Metera seems to be enjoying herself. Though I can't say the same for Sutera...
But Metera hasn't even begun to shop. She flitters from shop to shop like a hummingbird after nectar.
Metera: This shop is no good! Onto the next one! You hear me, Sutera... Sutera?
Sutera: Ah... I'm sorry, Metera. I'm just a little tired. I need to get away from the crowd and rest for a bit...
Metera: Wait... Sutera!
Sutera disappears into the crowd, wobbling on unsteady legs. Metera can only stand there, dumbfounded.
Metera: Oh... tired, eh?
Vyrn: Geez... what kinda sister are you? She could barely walk!
Metera: I guess we've never seen eye to eye... Different personalities, different hobbies...
Lyria: Oh... Metera...
Metera: But she's not a kid anymore. She'll be fine on her own, right? We've still got some shopping to do!
Metera: And I think I know someone who'd make a great canvas... Oh, Lyria? I bet you looove to play dress up!
With Sutera gone, Metera sets her sights on Lyria. The shopping trip goes on unimpeded.
After a short while, Sutera rejoins the crew.
Sutera: Sorry to keep you waiting! It was hard finding you with so many people around.
Metera: Wait. So you didn't you go back to the ship after all?
Sutera: Actually, I did. I just needed a little break! I'm okay now!
Sutera: Hehe... Hey, Metera! Hold out your hand.
Metera: Huh? What's this...
Metera obediently holds out her hand. In it, Sutera places a small and rather charming box.
Sutera: Hehe... I saw it in a bakery while we were shopping, and I thought there was no way I wasn't getting it for you.
Metera: Wait. For me? Fine... I'll go ahead and take it since you went through the trouble, but...
Still half mumbling, Metera opens the box to reveal a beautifully decorated pastry.
Lyria: Wow! It looks like treasure! I don't think I could ever eat something that looks that good!
Metera: Haha! A pastry. Geez, you're always so... practical!
Sutera: Oh... Well, that is true! But just look at it, Metera! Look at how nicely it's decorated!
Sutera: And they probably did it all with sugar! It's not just food, it's art!
Metera: You're really reaching. But it's not bad.
Metera: Nope, not bad at all.
There couldn't be two sisters more unlike one another than Sutera and Metera. And Sutera is completely at the mercy of her older sister.
But only they know the special bond they share. A bond that makes their relationship that much stronger.
