Another Won || [Lumine/Blue]

It was the mortal passion
The flame that lit the fire
the beauty of the starlight
brought the cruelty of desire


It had been forever since Lumine dressed up. And dressed up for no other reason than to leave the house, leave her studying, her cello, but to go out, and simply have some fun for once. Ever since joining Solstice, since her interview with Riley, Lumine had been working almost non-stop. For a change, she had dressed not in only her coat, but a relatively long and comfortable dress, as well as having her hair pulled back into something much more stylish than what she normally brought on. And strangely, Lumi actually felt...nice about the change. Even Terrene noticed while she about to head out.

"You're dressing as if you found a boy, Lumi."

"No no, I'm just tired of work. But I'll tell you if I find someone."

"Good luck!"

Terrene gave Lumi a peck on her forehead. Always the older sister with her. Ever since running away from her parents, Terrene had acted as Lumine's caretaker, although nowadays, she did get along with her parents, and went home every now and then. Terrene was now less a caretaker, and more extremely benevolent landlord. Their relationship however, was still very close, and as Lumine found herself on the receiving end of much of Terrene's advice, just as much as Lumi gave her her own.

Waving goodbye, Lumine walked for about 15 minutes down the street in relative daylight. The Gateway was a restaurant that she had not been to in sometime...although when she walked in, Lumi felt right at home. It was still the same classy place that it was several years ago. A young, handsome man took her to a small table nearby a stage which was no doubt destined for live music...what kind was still up in the air however. Another few minutes, and a drink was delivered to her table, and thus, started her night.

"Blue, are you ready yet?"

"No."

"You've been in there for 20 minutes."


"It's...tight. I feel uncomfortable."


"Compared to what you normally wear this is a nuns outfit, Deseray."

"Shhh, Don't call me that!"

Blue cracked the bathroom door open, just so her eyes could peek through the opening. When arriving at the Gateway she expected her normal routine. Walk in, wait for the music to start, sing, and leave. However, it was anything but that. Upon entering the establishment she was attacked greeted by a small swarm of female waitresses. Apparently, the manager insisted on a new formal look for the restaurants singer. She really didn't see the reason why, in fact blue always thought the normal clothes she wore suited her fine . Though he did mention something about a having a decent establishment and not a strip bar. When Blue told the man she didn't own a dress, or any fancy clothes for that matter he waved her off and said 'I'll take care of it.' She shrugged and quickly forgot the conversation.Until now. The garment not only slitted up both sides and stopped just above her exposed hipbone, but tightened in all the WRONG places. Blue hated clothes. They itched, and when sweating the fabric stuck to skin. That's why she made a point to wear as few pieces of clothing as possible. (If not any) She wasn't use to it.

"You could of let me put some input in the dress!"
She hissed through the crack. Leon (The manager) was sporting his usual dirty jacket and ripped jeans. For someone so concerned with her attire he didn't put much effort into his own. For the year shes known the man Blue came to the conclusion that Leon was a fairly nice guy. She wouldn't consider him a close friend but he had a kind heart. Even though his so called 'charm' tended to distract her from it.

"That's cute. Now, are you going to stand behind the door all night or get your ass on my stage?"


Normally she would of hit any other human for forcing her into anything but sweatpants.However, Leon did give her the job, and the pay was pretty decent. He also did this DESPITE her being a harbinger. He didn't even force her to wear shades up on stage, but with the lights you couldn't really tell anyways. Sighing, Blue shoved down whatever pride she had left and forced the door completely open. Leon starred for a brief moment, moving his eyes up and down to take in her appearance before clapping both hands In a 'chop chop' manner.

"Looks fine, Now go sing."

"How is this any different from my other clothes?" Other then her stomach, it exposed about the same amount of flesh compared to her normal garments!

"It's formal."


Not waiting for her reply he turned on heel and headed to the back of the restaurant. Obviously dismissing the conversation and her. Muttering a few curses Blue made her way to the South corner of the room were the stage was located. While heading there, she had to choke down a groan when realizing the funds for the outfit was likely to come out of her paycheck. fantastic. Her night just kept getting better and better.

"Heh, thanks, I don't drink much."

2004 Tedeschi Amarone. Lumine didn't drink often, but when she did, she always chose a wine that stood well on its own before a meal, often just keeping water on hand for her food. She had come with no one, but on entering, got some strange looks from several gentlemen, not sure if they should make a move on a girl with harbinger abilities. Most of them kept their distance. Others were yet intrigued, but all managed to stay away and keep to their own drinks and food during her sitting period. Lumine had a slight, wry grin on her face. It was expected, but she had come for dinner, not to woo anyone, although the way Terrene had helped her get ready would say otherwise.

"Appetizer ma'am?"

"Eh? Oh, hold on, sorry."

In her thoughts, Lumine had forgotten to even pick up the menu, completely forgetting she had come to eat, and not just drink the fancy wine. Well, semi-fancy. It wasn't like some 1800's vintage or anything like that, and nor was she anywhere close to an expert on the subject. The food here on the other hand hadn't changed in years, rendering her still a viable expert on that subject at least. A classy night called immediately for classy food.

"Grilled oysters please. Thanks."

Her waiter nodded and headed off for the kitchen as the lights dimmed on stage, bathing most of the room in darkness, excepting Lumine's close seat to said stage. She took a sip of her wine and looked up, brushing aside her bangs, which had fallen somewhat in front of her face leaning into drink. The stage lights came suddenly on, and a familiar woman, one in a style not suiting of her presence came walking on. Lumine felt a pain in her chest like something had fallen on her. The waiter came back with the appitizer.

"...Blue? Oh god."

"Is something the matter ma'am?"

"Two shots of rum please."

"I thought you said you didn't drink often."

"Only on special occasions, why, did you want one?"

At this point, the waiter, clearly not wishing a confrontation, went to the bar in order to fulfill the girl's request. Lumine was clearly visible from where Blue was standing. Their first meeting had been...less than pleasurable. Maybe the alcohol would help. Even just a bit.

Not likely.

The Restaurant was usually quit busy, but on the nights Blue sang the popularity seemed to spike. Despite the nerves of performing in front of others, she always had the will to choke fear down and get the deed done. Back when she lived with her family, singing use to be the only talent, or joyous thing life offered her. While Blue's voice would echo through the empty hall ways, the smallest ring of a violin could be herd from the upstairs balcony. The moments her brother played were a small bliss that was never took for granted. Now that he was gone- moments like those could never be re-lived. It was heart breaking, but gave her enough endurance to perform in front of an audience. Memories. They were painful, but simply encouraging.

Taking a deep breath Blue ran her hand through the curtain to push it back and step onto the platform. lamps around the restaurant dimmed before the spot light centered on her. It took a couple nights to get use to the skin-frying heat, and brightness the beams gave off, but she grew a custom to the surrounding. Even now, while she took up center stage Blue managed to keep herself from squinting. Which was how the slightly blurred image of a certain orange haired girl sparked renegotiation. Lumi- was it? After disappearing on the bounty hunt (Due to circumstances) The thought of seeing the harbinger again hadn't even crossed Blue's mind. Maybe it was luck? Staring directly at Lumine she shot forward a bright smile- clearly acknowledging her presence. After a few songs, she'd be sure to visit her table.

The usual chattered dyed away as she took the mic in one hand and held it just above glossy lips.Though the dress was extremely uncomfortable, Blue found the way the fabric flowed and sparkled with each movement quit appealing. Even the simplest scuffle sent the garment rippling like flag. Not bothering with the introductions, Blue waited for the heavy bass and drum set to accompany her before singing.
