Lola smiles at him, bowing slightly at the waist. “Thank you for the dance, Dusk. It was a pleasure.” She glances around and heads over to Flash, nudging him in the ribs. “You want to dance, or are you afraid I’ll step on your toes, Thompson?”November 27, 2019 at 2:11 am #120534Dominic GianatassioParticipant
Steam walks in hand and tail interlaced with Kei’s, he looks a bit tired though a smile still is across his face. He gives a warm nod to everyone in the room before heading over to Laurel “Apologies for coming late work stuff came up”November 27, 2019 at 2:28 am #120535Flash ThompsonParticipant
Flash chuckled and nodded. “I know how to dance Lola.” He took her hand and led her out to the dance floor. “Honestly surprised you are doing so well. With those two left feet you had from when we did the blanket fort party.”November 27, 2019 at 5:22 am #120565Thomas whiteParticipant
After taking a moment to get a drink Dusk will wait for Laurel to finish her dance and see if she is interested in taking a turn with him.November 27, 2019 at 5:47 am #120566Lola O’DonovanParticipant
She rolls her eyes at him, turning to give Kei and Steam a warm smile and a wave of greeting. “You should know by now I learn fast. Maybe Dusk is a better teacher than you anyway.”November 27, 2019 at 6:20 am #120567Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel finishes the dance with her father just in time to greet Steam and Kei. “I’m so happy you could make it! Things are just picking up here, you came at a perfect time.” She notices Dusk waiting nearby and shoots him a quick grin before turning her attention back to the felinae couple. “I’ll let you two get settled in. Please, let me know if you need anything!”
She heads over to where Dusk waits, taking his hand. “Shall we?”November 27, 2019 at 3:02 pm #120596Thomas whiteParticipant
Dusk smiles at her. “It would be an honor Miss Laurel.” They head to the dance floor together.November 27, 2019 at 3:09 pm #120601Paul VaughnParticipant
Seeing the couple walk in, Robert smiles deeply and runs up to the couple, hugging Kei firmly, and waving politely to steam.
“I’m glad to see you guys here. I don’t get to see you enough. How’ve you been doing, kei?”November 27, 2019 at 8:39 pm #120670KrissParticipant
Caulder resists the urge to vocalize his thoughts on the frivolities and pleasantries orchestrated before him.
He stands up.
“Well, thank you for this riveting event. I must be going. Good evening,” he nods at Laurel and offers a brief smile from his pale lips at anyone who happens to regard him at the moment.
He stops by the nearest sink to wash out his cup, then walks out the door.November 28, 2019 at 4:30 am #120799Flash ThompsonParticipant
Flash grabbed his chest in mocking manner. “You wound me.” He said with a chuckle as they danced

Laurel and Dusk dance together gracefully, holding each other close. They whisper to each other throughout the dance, only parting occasionally for Laurel to spin. After a few songs, they leave the dance floor. Laurel pulls Dusk in for a kiss before skipping off to mingle with the guests.
She saunters up to Robert cheerfully.”I hope you’re enjoying yourself! Would you like to dance? It’ll be fun!”November 29, 2019 at 3:06 am #120906Paul VaughnParticipant
Robert looks up from his drink and smiles at her. “I gotta apologize in advance, I’ve never been a good dancer. you’ll have to show me some moves or something. Nothing too complicated, please?”
He stands up and timidly follows her to the dance floor, waiting for her cue on what to do.November 29, 2019 at 5:00 am #120911JinxParticipant
Though Kei looks tired as well he seems just the slightest bit better off than Steam. Excitement is easy to see in the way he’s holding himself and the little glint in his eyes. Tonight he’s just going to be himself. Being with Steam has made him take proper breaks and such but he still doesn’t let himself just be relaxed when out and about that much. Tonight is a celebration though and he’s going to treat it like one. He’s got good men covering tonight’s shift anyways so his mind is put at ease by that.
Why Robert runs up and gives him a hug Kei will gently take his hand from Steam’s to wrap the Terran in a hug. A little purr sound from him and he nuzzles lightly at Robert’s neck.
“I know, I’m sorry. I give myself a little more time to rest cuz of this guy,” a nod towards Steam with an affectionate smile on his face, “pushes me to but we tend to go back to the house then. I’ll try and make it out here more though.” When Laurel comes over and asks Robert to dance he gives a nod and takes Steam’s hand again.
“Go on! Have fun! Feel free to come talk with me later.” He gives a little wave as the other walks off with the woman.November 29, 2019 at 5:40 am #120916Estrella NeishParticipant
Laurel flashes Kei a cheerful smile before confidently leading Robert to the dance floor. “Alright, that hand goes there on my back. Watch the wings though!” She adds with a laugh “see? You already know the basics.” She spends the next couple minutes showing him some easy steps. When the next song starts she stops instructing and lets him lead the dance. “It’s good to see you enjoying yourself. You can be a bit…well, harsh when you’re in a bad mood. Hopefully we’ll get to see more of this Robert?”November 29, 2019 at 5:48 am #120917Paul VaughnParticipant
Robert stumbles his way through leading the dance, but doesn’t completely botch it.
When Laurel suggests maybe they’ll see more of this side of him, he sighs, and says “not sure how much more you’ll be seeing me after tonight, actually. Tomorrow morning, I’m heading over to Elimer to start working as a farmer.” he pulls out as part of the dance, but also to create space between them. “Don’t worry though, it’s not tooo far, so I can still come visit, or might just decide I don’t like it and come back permanently. Most people here have my comms number anyway, and if I’m really needed, I could come back.”
After two dances, Robert pulls away, takes a slight bow, and says “It’s been a pleasure, Laurel. I’m sure you’ve got half the room waiting for a dance.” A rare, genuine glint of kindness crosses his eyes, as he walks away to take a seat by Kei, and wordlessly resting his head upon Kei’s furry shoulder.
