little heiress big world
A blond girl walks through the double doors of the establishment, and immediately walks right into the center of the room. Not all eyes are on her, by any means of the imagination, but her eyes are on all of them. This is an objectively perfect spot for finding people, and she’ll need that if she wants to find her friends. She’s never met one of them in person, and will have to rely merely on the descriptions she’s sent in her letters. Jade, however, has a tendency to ramble more about others that herself, so from what Rose has gathered, she’s looking for a girl around her own age, with dark black hair, glasses, and green eyes. Rose almost thinks she spots her, and is about to move over to greet her, when suddenly, she is almost thrown to the ground, as a stranger bumps into her.
Rose’s eye twitches, as she steadies herself on the table, and stops herself from falling. This is annoying. She looks around again, and has seemed to lost the girl she assumed was Jade. The new girl, the one that just bumped into Rose, is staring at her with wide eyes and genuine concern. Rose blows her bangs out of her eyes, before parting her hair properly and adjusting her hair band, and then looks the girl over, judging her silently.
“I’m perfectly fine, no thanks to you.” Rose states quietly. “Do try to be more careful next time.” Rose automatically assumes the girl is poor, considering the fact she’s carrying her own luggage. Rose had her luggage brought in by the help. How did she get in, then? Rose wonders. Perhaps she was here on an athletic or artistic scholarship. She most definitely wasn’t here on academic scholarship, that was for sure.
Rose bits the inside of her lip, remembering the girl’s genuine concern, and decides she’s been a bit harsh with her. She holds out a gloved hand. “I’m Rose Lalonde. And you are?” She says, deciding to give the stranger a chance before she writes her off completely.
Feferi feels terribly embarrassed because of her own carelessness. She really should have been paying more attention to her surroundings; the one time that she doesn’t, it ends badly. She knows the blonde’s annoyance toward her is more than justified, it could have ended worse she supposed. So much for making a good first impression though.
“I truly am sorry about that.” The child puts a stray piece of hair behind her ear as she sets the suitcase down. She knew she should have let the help take it to her room for her. Then again, Feferi wanted to try being a bit more independent now that she was away from home. It was just one suitcase anyway, and the rest of her luggage should be already in her dorm if they worked fast enough that is.
The heiress nods her head, very vaguely recognizing the name. She never paid much attention to other families, because that was incredibly boring. The young Peixes had better things to do than sit around and listen to some old person drone on and on about the importance of getting along with high status families. Though Feferi never failed to attend her lessons, that didn’t mean she was mentally there. Daydreaming was something she often did, so she could only remember bits and pieces by the time lessons were over.
She takes the other girl’s gloved hand and gives it a friendly shake with her bare one. Nervousness quickly forgotten, Feferi smiles brightly, glad that Rose no longer seemed too upset by the accident. “My name is Feferi Peixes, it’s a pleasure to meet you Rose!”
