You watch Roxy scamper off to greet the eel, and you briefly consider tagging along. The thought is discarded immediately. If he craves your presence, he’ll seek it.
Instead, you turn to the bar, serving yourself a rum and coke. Perfect.
Yeah, she was mad. Something about seeing a young Lalonde angry at an Ampora that wasn’t him was… Amusing. No wonder others enjoyed seeing him cave to Roxanne and her Roses. Though, perhaps, this time Eridan may have pushed too many buttons.
"I’m sure you’ll get your dance. In one form or another." Probably not much smarter to say, but it beat having nothing to say at all.
Yes, she was upset, but she could tell he was becoming uncomfortable. For fear of running him off, she shook her head to clear it, giving him a small smile. “I’m sure I will,” she agreed, switching subjects.
"Where is your date?" The inquiry was innocent, her head cocked to the side in a way that had shown genuine curiosity. "Dates, I should say."
"that sounds like a lovely life, amazin it is simplicity"
Roxy gives her a half smile. “Well..im beat the game, but i never went God tier so no fun voidy powers for this Roxy. I am a trained Assassin and i live here..on LOPAN. Like most Rox’s I love my rifles and my sciences.” She shrugs and pours mixes her herself a drink. “Its interestin..sometimes too interestin” She taps her face as emphasis.
Rose leans against the bar counter, resisting the temptation to make herself a cocktail. She listens intently as Roxy explains herself, nodding and humming noncommittally in the correct places. Her gaze trails up to where her conversational partner gestures, eyes widening just a tad. She hadn’t even noticed that.
"I’m sure you have plenty of stories to recount."
Even if he’d never seen that smile on Rose’s face, it was a smile he recognized almost immediately. Man, Eridan got her right mad!
It didn’t stop Czunah from giving an amused smile of his own.
"I’m sure there’s some sort of reasonin to it," Czunah assured as his right hand attempted to brush back loose locks of hair. "Not to say he doesn’t deservwe vwhat’s likely to come, but I’m puttin faith in the idea of him havwin a reason.. Evwen if it is stupid."
She had a right to be upset. He was so Gung Ho about her having something to wear and getting there on time, and then he didn’t so much as message her to warn her he would be late or not coming at all?
Rose rolled her eyes, letting out a long sigh as she finish off her seaweed. “He owes me a dance.” That was stupid to say, but it was the only thing she could think for him to realistically make it up to her.
"That’s fair enough." And it entirely made sense. He stopped and considered asking exactly which Rose she was. Was that rude? Perhaps he should’ve asked that first before attempting to initiate conversation.
"No? I thought Eridan had invwited—" Then he stopped and realized Eridan still wasn’t here. He took some seaweed as well and resisted smirking around it. "I can only imagine the trouble he’s in vwith you."
A smile, one much too sweet for one with her personality type, found itself painted onto her features. “Oh, not at all. I’m just going to give him a comfortable talking to— you know, needles in hand. Just in case.”
She huffed, the smile fading into a fair look of annoyance. “I took the night off, just for him, and he doesn’t even have the decency to arrive on time. Ridiculous.”
ERIDAN AMPORA I WILL GUT YOU LIKE A FISH
Like an eel.
She laugh loudly at her comment. “true i imagine violet is hard to get out of clothes. Alas he will live another day”
She shakes her head slowly. “No one is run of the mill, especially not any Lalondes. You work at a library? What do you do there? I always thought that workin in a library would be fun lots of books and intelligent people”
She snaps her fingers in mock-disappointment. “We’ll get him someday,” Rose replies, her smile widening.
The blonde nods. “I do far more than most there. I reset the books and do most of the secretarial work. I also work the front desk, most days.” She shrugs a shoulder, “The most exciting thing to be doing there is organizing events for charitable organizations and school field trips. I live a fairly mundane life, if I’m to be honest, but I’m satisfied with it.
"How about you, Roxy?" She raises her eyebrows, eyes alight with curiosity. "Tell me about yourself."
"That obvwious, is it?" The taller male just gave a tired smile, a shrug and reached over for some raw fish and rice. It smelled good; best eat it before it started to stink.
"You look a bit distracted," he said as he lifted the sushi to his mouth. "Your date late as vwell?" The bite sized treat was popped quickly into his waiting mouth, shark-like teeth happily chewing away as he listened for Rose’s reply, his attentiveness showed by the slight perk of his fins.
Her eyebrows furrowed a bit. He looked rather exhausted already. “You can never be too sure, what with the alternates running around.” Rose shrugged a shoulder, swiping a small sheet of dried/seasoned seaweed and beginning to nibble on it.
"I don’t have a date," she replied easily, raising her brows at him. At least he didn’t look uncomfortable talking to her.

You spot a familiar face as she appears from the pad with a snap, crackle and pop. You may not have met her specifically, but there was no doubt in your mind that she was one of the many Roses in the multiverse.
It was just a matter of which one, now…
Straightening out your outfit, you carefully go over towards her, stopping short a few feet to clear your throat.
You’re startled out of your self-conscious trance by the sound that he produces, and upon inspection you find that it was an Ampora attempting to grapple for your attention. The telltale scars across his face give away his identity rather obviously.
One of your hands rests itself on your hip as you give him a cursory glance, smiling in welcome.
"That’s my name; don’t wear it out," you reply carefully, straightening your back slightly. "I’m going to throw out a wild guess, here: Czunah?"
"You are hardly barging in on anythin, the more the merrier. And after all this was supposed to be Eridans party but then the just told me to plan it and..i kinda went over board. Speakin of eridan im gonna kill him when he gets here"
She smiles warmly at the other lalonde.
"So tell me a bit about yourself Rose?"
She laughs quietly at the latter statement. “I’ll hold him down. You can commit the homicide. I wouldn’t want to ruin my perfectly gorgeous dress with his blood.”
She bites her lower lip briefly, humming in thought. “I’m most likely your run-of-the-mill Rose, really. I went through the game. Now I live in an apartment and work at a wonderful library.” Her head cocks to the side just a bit. “Is there anything specific that you’re wondering about?”
((Ok! I’ll start a thread with Roxy soon, or just reply to yours if that’s ok))
[Either way works for me!]
