- ooc - dear reader, this takes place whilst Gia is
going self-destructive and the events thereafter.
<< Taurus 'base, guest quarters >>
Kaelistra: *staring at her canvas with a critical
eye* Ru, come lookie this will ya??
Ruby: *climbing to her feet and setting aside the
padd she'd been busily typing at* What, Lis?
Kaelistra: Well--does it LOOK right to you?? *She
gestured at her work in progress.*
*Ruby stood behind her sister and gave the painting a
good look. Kaelistra had combined swirls of bright
cobalt and muted sky, with dashes of snowy white on
one side of the canvas, and put pale goldenrod and
cream, with hints of aqua, on the other. As the
colors progressed towards the middle, they began to
meld, the blues and the golds, until they met in an
intricate swirl forming in the very center of the
Ruby: I think it looks great. This is certainly
better than what some people call abstract art. *She
looked at Kiana.* Moon, c'mere and back me up.
*Kiana rose gracefully, setting aside her own padd
with Ashley's proposed schedules on it, and also came
to look. She nodded approvingly with a smile.*
Kiana: It's beautiful, Lis.
Kaelistra: *chewing her lip* But--will THEY like
Ruby: I'm sure they will.
Kaelistra: Should I add anything to it? Any more
Ruby: Neh--just finish the big swirl in the center
and that should do it.
Kaelistra: Mm-kay.... *She grabbed one of her
feathered brushes, drowned it in the bright cobalt,
then painstakingly began the swirl where she'd left
off.* So'd you hear all the gossip about Captain
Donan this time?
Ruby: No--what now? Can't they get off the poor
Kaelistra: Well babe, even you should admit marrying
three others at once IS a little outlandish for a
Ruby: She what?!
Kiana: *frowning in confusion* I thought she was
marrying the bartender....
Kaelistra: *relishing the chance to spill the tale*
Him--and Korai AND her hubby too. So now they're a
happy quad of four--or maybe not so happy....
Ruby: *flopping down in her chair again* Was gonna
say "is the talk about Korai and the bartender
fighting over the captain B.S. or true?"
Kaelistra: *shrugging* If the girls wanted each
other that bad, the boys were part of the package, ne?
Maybe eventually Korai and he will kiss and make up.
Kiana: *amused* This is looking like more and more
intriguing. Ashley and Tira--and now a captain with
three spouses. What next--an ambassadorial triangle?
Kaelistra: Ya never know, babe. Ya never know....
Ruby: *musing* If we wanted to give them a
gift--what in the galaxy COULD we give them?
Kiana: If either of you suggests me playing them a
song, I'll break my flute over your heads. *she
Kaelistra: *mulling as she dabbed more cream across
one of the dried blue swirls* Wonder if they'd sit
for a portrait....probably not though....
Ruby: Hey, there's an idea! Plus wouldn't that be a
boon to your break if they agreed--wedding portrait
for Captain Donan and her spouses.
Kaelistra: Why not--the worst they can do is laugh in
my face, ya think? *She set her brushes aside and
stood up.* I'll go for a little walk--and let this
dry. Take another look--tell me if you think it needs
anymore touches. If not, we can call Tira when I get
<< fifteen minutes later, outside Telsia's quarters >>
*Kaelistra stood by the door and tapped the chime, her
portfolio in hand. At the last minute, Kiana
suggested taking it with her--in case one of them
demanded proof she had true talent. She waited a long
minute, then tapped the chime again. But no one
showed at the door.*
Kaelistra: (Well, they're either all out or--) *She
snickered inwardly.* Okay, I'll leave a card and hope
they don't miss it. *Thankful that Kiana had also
reminded her to bring some cards in case this exact
thing happened, she took one from her pocket, fished
out a pen from her portfolio to scribble their
quarters number and the comm code on the back, then
knelt down to slip it beneath the door. She headed
back to join her sisters, hoping this chance proved to
