Alice frowns with an exagerated grin. "That is so very, very sad. It's even more sad, because I can't hug you!"
She steps out from behind the counter, and extends an arm to Robin. "Well, I can at least help you find what you need. And I'm sure Mr. Base can help Ichigo! He can do anything, 'cause he's a god in the kitchen!"
She looks towards Ichigo. "I'll be with you in a sec, but right now I gotta help the cutie find her chocolates, okay?"
(Robin does NOT gain a fate point, as this is most definitely a positive result!)
Robin blinks, but shakes Alice's hand in return ? She was a bit confused to be considered cute, especially since the reaction of people towards her species was usually the exact opposite of that.
"Er. Thanks. But not the chocolates, the guy who bought them. Or rather, the guy who bought a huge stash of them just to drop them into my house. Would be interesting to know who that person is...Maybe for more than one reason" She says with a slight stutter as she pushes her glasses up a bit.
Alice...just looks at Robin, with big, wide, sad kitty eyes. Or possibly sad puppy eyes. It's a bit hard to tell. They're sad eyes, the eyes of someone whose dreams have been utterly, and completely crushed. Someone who has been totally, and completely shot down.
She whimpers, before finally speaking a little. "I'd have to see which type he got." Her voice is soft, and lacking in the fire she previously had.
Haunted nods to Alice, and when suddenly sad Alice occurs she floats right next to her rather than her usual distance. She still seems somewhat left behind on things, but she can at least understand that Alice isn't doing so great. Course, as already determined hugs aren't possible, but hey, thought that counts.
Robin is confused at the gorgon's expression at first, the nerd needing several moments to finally catch on to what she just said, and waved her arms in front of her hastily "That's not what I mean! Or maybe it is what the man had in mind... but I didn't! He merely broke into my room and dropped a lot of stuff in there... from which a couple things may or may not have been stolen but that's not the point! No wait THAT is the point... I wanna find out what is up with... whomever that is."
Robin looks off to the sides with a mild blush, both at the possible intention of the mysterious stranger, aswell as what seemingly was in Alice's mind, stuttering as she was, to her own surprise, unable to think of what to say, in a moment where she felt like she had to say something!
Alice perks up, and walks forwards. "Then we shall find this horrific chocolate-giver. Now come, Spidey And we shall find glory!"
And she tromps off towards the chocolates...as Haunted can hear some strange music approaching. Or has it been there all along. Something about being human. It's from the opposite direction as Robin...
Haunted waves goodbye slightly to the Alice, and as Robin and Alice seem to be going to go do their own thing she just kinda floats about, heading in the general direction of whatever music that is. Cause a ghost suddenly appearing in some random party is a good thing right?
Oblivious to the odd ghost attracting music, maybe due to being more of a gaming zombie than a ghost anyway, she begins to follow Alice "Glory huh ? I am... too easy to spot am I ? I should have invested into a pair of fake sticky eyebrows... but imagine how it is if you pull them off your eyes. Very bad idea." Robin says in consideration of the disguise.
And so, Robin and Alice walk together, though not arm in arm...and then they turn the corner, to see a man standing in the chocolate aisle, looking over the exact brand of chocolates that were in Robin's room. He turns, and...he's BEAUTIFUL. Inhumanly beautiful. Dryad level beautiful. Only...male. Though, with a Japanese aesthetic. He's like a Bishounen right out of manga, and as he turns, cherry blossoms flutter around him. He brushes his long hair, and smiles with pure white teeth.
"Greetings, my beauties. I am Owen Goodfellow, at your service. I am here to purchase some treats for...Ah. Madaam Weaver? I did not expect you to be here. Did you enjoy my gift?"
Robin simply ends up staring at Owen, before looking to Alice, as if doing a reality check... and back to Owen, before opening her mouth eventually "So you...brought me these chocolates... and these lemurian care products ? Wuehwhuwhawhy ?" She says, obviously surprised to have the bad thief or stalker be a very untypical thief or stalker.
Owen smiles brightly, and tattooed markings flash on his face, revealing his Sidhe heritage. "Why, my dear...because Jessica needed to be taken down a peg. And her reaction was MOST amusing. As for you...let us just say that I appreciate beauty of all kinds."
He pulls a rose out of nowhere, and hands it to Robin. "For you, madaam." And then hands Alice a small sprig of a plant that is definitely not a rose, which causes Alice to smile brighty as she inhales the scent. "And for you. Now...while it is a pleasure to meet you both, perhaps a change of venue? The Laughing Nymph provides suitable accommodations, does it not?"
Robin gives Alice a surprise look at the reaction to her odd gift, but shrugs softly and grins to Owen with a soft blush and twirls the rose between her fingers gently "Ohhooo, I thank you for your nice words. That Lemurian did indeed seem a bit... oh well, but don't let it become routine to prank her and I'll just let it slip, okie dokie ?"
Robin, to the proposal to go to the Laughing Nymph, shrugs "Fine by me. What do you say Ichigo-uh..." She says, and looks behind her "Huh, where did she went off to..."
Owen smiles, and claps his hands. "I have an idea. How about dear little Alice helps find your late friend, while I escort a beautiful flower such as yourself to the Laughing Nymph. I am sure Ichigo is fine. Not much can harm the dead, and anything that can, cannot handle Alice's...unique abilities."
Alice, for her part, nods, sighing happily. She seems...a little out of it.
Robin chuckles "Allright, but you should consider to not overuse your flattery, or smart women might catch up on you~" She says with a nerdy grin, pushing her glasses up a bit "Regardless of that, I'll trust Alice here, then. See you later at the Laughing Nymph Inn... whenever you do snap out of your uh... I am not even sure what it is, but you sure are into it." Robin tells Alice, before she begins to swing her legs! Towards the Laughing Nymph inn, it is!
