Matt did observed her reaction but
decided to play as if he didn’t.
’ do i have to pay ? i don’t have money. '
That attracted Artemisa’s attention. Stopping her steps, she turned towards him and examined him carefully. “Really? But that jacket seems new.”
’ oh ? that’s unfortunate. i thought
i could learn something new. ’
"Yeah… Unfortunate." Shrugging slightly, Artemisa glanced at the stranger coldly. "But if you go down the block and then to the left you will find a fencing academy, they teach strangers.”
’ practice ? seems pretty rough.
think you could teach me ? ’
"Nope." After all the situation screamed stranger danger. "Sorry, but I don’t normally teach strangers."

Artemisa had always been fascinated by mythology. It really didn’t matter what type. Greek, Egyptian, Nordic… She loved each one of these. Still, Greek Mythology had a special place in her heart, after all, her father was named like the messenger of the gods, and her name was in honor of the huntress, the moon, the eternal virgin, Artemisa. Well because of that, and because it was just fascinating. There were all types of creatures, of myths, all of them related to only one culture. It was just amazing.
And her love for Greek Mythology had coincidentally taken her to the circus show that had just arrived to the city. A show that had a centaur. A mythological creature half-man, half-horse, a wonderful being.
"Here!" Exclaiming this in a loud voice, Artemisa raised her hand, hoping to be picked. The embarrassment of her actions would catch up to her later, but now she couldn’t care less.
’ that’s wrong in so many ways i don’t
even know from where should i start. ’
"What are you talking about? The fact that I carry I sword around? Because if it is that… Well, I fence, and I am coming back from practice."
Moving was nothing new for Artemisa, it was routine. Leaving a familiar city, town, or village, to arrive to another new place. A place were she had to start all over again… Again. Needless to say, she hated moving, she just did, but when her parents pressured her to move closer to them, and to her family in general, she couldn’t say no. Not to the people that had paid her education and helped her find a job. So, in the end, after countless hours of discussion one thing was decided: She would move to England, but only to Shinedale, were her companies office was located, a compromise that her parents accepted gleefully.
And there she was, with a backpack with her essentials in her back, a book in one hand, and a piece of paper in the other, in front of her new apartment complex and with the weight of a thirteenth hour flight in her back. Hopefully she wouldn’t have to wait much for her thins to get to the apartment, since she had to work on Monday and there were some documents that she needed in the packages.
Glancing at the street a last time, Artemisa let out a sigh and entered the building, walking towards the elevator without stopping to greet her future neighbors, to tired for thinking in introducing herself, that would wait until she had slept for at least six hours. Thinking this, she suppressed a yawn, pressed the elevator button and waited for it to arrive.
Oh shoot. He’d managed to
screw up again. But this time
he’d seemingly shouted at a
completely innocent female.
And, as if that weren’t bad
enough, he’d interrupted her
reading. "Um… I…Force of
habit, I guess. I was talking to
a fly…?” Shichiro was a lot of
things, but a good liar was not
one of them.
Now that was a strange individual… Just like the ones that picked her curiosity. Even more since he was such a bad liar. But even so, it would be interesting to follow with his lie for a while. “So what was the fly doing that you had to scream at it?”
『†』: ❝ Let’s ~ ❞ He squeezes herself back, Doing well to mask his anticipation with a nonchalant smirk. Shes beaming, Perhaps as excited as he was to be here and to be going on their very first date as a … What were they ? a friendly-couple ? Friends who are testing the waters ? Or just a couple of companions doing something fun together while holding hands. What they appeared to be in the public eye didn’t bother him. As long as that radiant smile remains on Artemisas visage, expressing happiness.
Looking up at Vanitas’ face, Artemisa rolled her eyes softly and stretched her hand up to poke his cheek slightly. “Smile~ We are finally on a date after destiny itself tried to break us apart. We have defied destiny, this deserves a smile of celebration.” Needless to say, she was exaggerating with that comment, but she really wanted to see Vanitas smile one of his sincere smiles, simply because she just loved his smile, they made her immensely happy.
