I felt like advertising this amazing community. :] Come join Town-Square and see all of our Festivals, AU Weekends, plus the Bazaar Shops! Next week is the opening of our Bazaar so you can come create a shop and buy things to make roleplaying realistic! (It’s not required though, but it’s a really fun idea!) There’s always SOMETHING going on and you definitely will end up having fun, so come join us!
Why would you even ask me about something so personal? That’s none of your business! [Glares]
[[ Can I just say… That I’m super disappointed in Ann too? It is rather childish to lash out like this on the Dash. It’s really sad to see a good role player turn out this way. Ah well… I guess it’s good riddance then. ]]
[Currently frustrated over a shipment of medicine that was supposed to show up, but everything’s been delayed due to the Festival. He looked pretty grim, but he tried his best to change his expression so he wouldn’t worry Bianca.] Ah— Hello again, Bianca! It’s great to see you—
Oh! Thank you very much! [A genuine smile finally appeared and it seems she brightened up his night rather easily.] I also have something for you, hold on… [Turns and looks through his doctor bag, then pulls out a bouquet of Daffodils to give to her.] Happy Harmony Day and may you be blessed with good health, Bianca.
I hope I’m not interrupting your work, but I wanted to make sure I dropped by. [blinks in surprise, smiling gently at the offered gift] How thoughtful! Thank you so much, Doctor! I hope you’ve had an enjoyable day today. I admit, it’s been great for me, since it has given me an excuse to get out of the house again. Everyone is always in such a great mood on festival days, too, it’s quite nice!
No, no you’re not interrupting anything at all… I’m actually waiting for something to show up. [Nods to her thanking him.] It was no problem at all, Bianca. I’m glad you like the gift! Hm… [Tugs on his collar while trying to focus on her words instead of the missing shipment.] Ah— Well, I’m also glad that you’re getting out more. I try to attend the festivals when I’m not busy, but usually I’m stuck at my desk with mountains of paperwork… [Chuckles quietly.] The festivals seem to bring out the best in people, yes?
Haha, thank you for the recognition Bianca! I’m glad that you trust me enough after such a short time of knowing me. [Couldn’t help but smile at her.] Where exactly do you live again? Maybe I should try stopping by and see how things are over there… That or feel free to stop by or even call me if you prefer my assistance, should you ever need it.
Yes, I do have to be more careful with my own health since I’m traveling so much and could easily catch anything during my escapades… Thank you for your concern. [Closes his eyes for a brief second then glances over at her once she explained her situation.] Ahh— I see… Well, I hope one day you will find your calling and get to live out your dreams, Bianca!
Well, you seem a very dependable young man to me, Doctor. [nods her head affirmatively] Oh, I live out in Kardia. We could definitely use the help, I’m sure. It’s a very small town! I do appreciate your offer, though. Do you have a business card, perhaps?
That does some bothersome.. I suppose you know all about how to care for yourself without me telling you as much, though. [puts a hand to her cheek delicately and nods, smiling softly] You sound like a friend of mine.. I.. Have no idea if that is even possible, however. My father keeps me stuck at home more often than not. I believe he intends to arrange a marriage for me eventually… [she sighs softly at the thought]
Thanks, Bianca… I’ve never heard of Kardia, but I will have to visit someday soon. Business card? Ah— Yes, one second… [Grabs his doctor bag and opens it up to search around in it, then pulls out a small card to hand it over with a blank expression on his face.] Here you go!
Haha, it’s alright Bianca. I always get lectured by my nurse, Elli, and she never lets me leave until she gets the chance to tell me to take care of myself. Even though I’m a doctor, I’m used to people telling me to be careful with my health and it doesn’t bother me at all. [Pauses and raises a brow over the subject of marriage.] …Arranged marriage? Is that even legal anymore? [He’s frowning, but it’s still hard to distinguish from his straight face.] You don’t have the right to choose for yourself and be happily married?
“You really picked a good one.” Ann said chuckling. She then sighed, looking down at the ground. “I know…I just want to help him out. You know? Make up for the fact that I’m not girly like he had hoped I would be. I just want to make him proud.” Ann then looked up at Trent and smiled a little bit. “Thanks Dr. Trent for, uh, letting me rant a bit. It felt good to get it all out..Maybe I do need some rest.” Ann pondered.
I’m not very great with giving advice, but I honestly believe that any father will always be proud of their child no matter what. You try hard to help him and you care about him, right? That already makes him happy, I’m sure, and it’s better than what most parents get… With all the rude and spoiled children these days. In my opinion, you should have a sit down talk with him and let him know what you go through just to make him happy. It may not make any sense, but you can make yourself very unhealthy with all this extra stress on yourself. [Finally getting to the point of his advice which wraps around health, of course.] See, right now you feel better about telling me this… But you’ll feel even better after discussing this with Doug!
-sits down into the chair still holding the flowers tightly-
No, nothings wrong. I’m just very happy is all, for you to go to the trouble of getting such a beautiful bouquet I’m very touched.
…If you say so, I have no reason to doubt you. Hm? It was no trouble at all, Elli, and I couldn’t forget to give you a bouquet since you work so hard for me. [Scratches at his cheek, still oblivious to any woman’s feelings, and ends up pondering if Elli is actually sick.] Either way, thank you for all of your hard work.
That’s true, though you already work hard every day. I should follow your example.
Perhaps I can ask some people who live in one of the neighboring towns if they can spare some herbs that we don’t have here.
Well, I don’t want you to turn into me and end up having issues sleeping… It’s not easy to do what I do, but I’m a doctor and so many lives depend on me, so Ihaveto work harder. There’s a reason why I have you stay here when I visit the other towns, Elli. [Stares at her with his usual blank expression, but doesn’t continue to explain his reason. It should be obvious that he cares for her.]
It might be a good learning experience for you, so I’ll stay here and keep an eye on things. Do be careful and let me know what happens, alright?
