PostSubject: Scifi Remix   Mon Oct 14, 2013 5:03 am

Dorian found himself outside of the apartment door awkwardly shifting his weight from foot to foot. He had told Laun he would be home early to take her out shopping, and he was going to, but now he wondered if it would be okay...considering last night they had shared a kiss.

He shook his head, this shouldn't be a big deal, and it wasn't. Their lips had barely touched. Though it seemed the more he tried to push the memory from his mind, the more it insisted on staying. It was just that she had been so responsive, even to the simplest of his touches, and the way she looked at him through her long lashes, or the way her full lips had molded against his...

He abruptly cleared his throat, he was supposed to be protecting Laun. That was his main and primary concern and he couldn't risk anymore distractions. They were lucky to have made it as long as they had and he couldn't get wrapped up in feeling too comfortable playing house with some silly girl. He was a soldier, and that's how he would behave. Yogi could have the rest of the beer. He would just have to pour himself into more work, starting tomorrow.

With his resolve firmly back in place he unlocked the door and went inside.

Laun stood in the bathroom vigorously trying to dry her hair with a towel. She had been so nervous about going out with Dorian today that she had submerged herself in cleaning every corner of the apartment and even spent a good proportion of her time rearranging the clean folded clothes around the room. If only she had some tools and wood she would have built a dresser, not that she knew how but she was willing to do anything to keep herself from freaking out about the date later.

Was this a date? She wondered as she hung the wet towel up and then grabbed her brush and set to work on detangling her hair. He had asked her before they had kissed, but wasn't that enough to change it from a simple outing to something more? Her eyes caught the reflected movement in the mirror and she look into her own pale face and wide ruby eyes then down at her mouth. She turned her head at angles and studied her features wondering if she looked different now that she had kissed a man. She tilted her chin up and imagined Dorain telling her she looked so mature then turned to glance at her profile thinking he would say she was sensual and alluring now.

The sound of the front door opening jerked her out of making kissy faces at her reflection and she panicked as she grabbed her brush once more and ran it quickly through her hair then tossed it onto the counter and headed for the bathroom door. She felt nervous again as if he had actually walked in on her mirror moment and a small blush hit her cheeks at how silly she was.

Laun popped her head out of the frame and smiled trying to act normal and not like a girl who was freaking out about being kissed for the first time. “Hey, are we still going out?” It was a miracle her voice stayed casual because the moment she saw him she felt like her breath had been knocked out of her. Had he always been this attractive after coming back from work covered in dirt and sweat? She felt a familiar tightening in her chest and she looked away from him and quickly went to work distracting herself by running to the fridge.

“Are you thirsty, you look thirsty.” She pulled a soda out and walked towards him so she could give it to him but abruptly stopped a few feet from him unable to get any closer. She held the can out at arm’s length towards him and finally looked up to meet his eyes, “here.. Or would you like some of that other stuff you drink?” She dropped her eyes away from his and was about to pull her arm back with the soda and go switch the drink out.

Dorian was to busy fumbling with the buttons of his jacket to acknowledge the girl. It was funny because even though his fingers were broad they were usually nimble enough to handle buttons. Hell, he fixed ships, buttons shouldn't be a problem but it was hard to concentrate when as soon as he entered the small room he had been hit with the strong scent of her shampoo which still continued to waft from the restroom. Vanilla was the last scent he thought he'd find alluring. It had a warm sweetness to it that in it's own way was comforting.

When he finally looked up at her he realized how much of what she had said he missed. "What?" He asked, his brows scrunching in confusion before his eyes dropped to the soda "Oh. No." He took the can from her "This is fine." He walked away from her and absentmindedly set the drink back on the counter before going to pick something to change in to. "We'll go after a shower."

Laun watched Dorian’s retreating form and a disappointed pout curved her lips as the excited nervousness she had been feeling deflated instantly. She mistook his nervous movements and the way his eyes averted themselves from hers as a sign that he might be avoiding her for some reason. Could it be he regretted kissing her last night and was now only going shopping because he felt obligated?

Laun shook her head and snatched the can of soda off the counter and tried to tell herself she was just over thinking this. Popping the soda open she tipped the can up and finished half the can in three large gulps. It was possible he was just feeling greasy and uncomfortable and wanted to get in the shower so he could was it all off. An unlikely thought crossed her mind that maybe he had been just as nervous to see her today that he didn’t know how to act. Laun giggled to herself at this thought and at how cute it would be if that was true.

Laun made her way to the couch and plopped down bringing her slim legs up to rest against her chest and spent the rest of the time waiting for him to get out of the shower by wondering about what she would buy when they went shopping later. Maybe she would look for the first stand she had saw when she had arrived on the planet and see if the older woman still had the red necklace she had looked at.

It didn't take Dorian long to shower and get ready to go out and in no time they found themselves in the bustling marketplace of the city. It was surprisingly busy for a weekday Dorian thought but with it being a port city, it wasn't that big of a surprise.

Each shop held something vastly different from the last, in fact even the people were just as diverse. It didn't seem that no two people were off the same race. One shop held old beat up technology, each piece rusted and worn and obviously all trash the seller a thin old man with a scraggly white beard that curled down to his rotund belly. Beside him sat a rather prim looking woman of a race Dorian couldn't exactly pinpoint. Her large black doe eyes blinked rapidly, her eye lids closing horizontally instead of vertical like his own. On her table lay dried medicinal herbs and her hands worked swiftly with the mortar and pestle she used to grind them up.

He hadn't realized how far the shops had actually extended, he might have passed them to and from work but his mind was always preoccupied to really pay attention to his surroundings. "So," He finally asked over the loud murmur of the crowd that he continued to survey "Where to? Should we eat first?" It was easier to return to a casual conversation with the girl among the bustling crowd. There was too many people around for anything to happen between them.

"Free samples!" A plump slimy green man who in the kindest way resembled a snail stood behind a covered stall shouted. Before he turned and attempted to shoo away two men who were in a heated argument over something. "You're scaring away my customers!" he shouted and Dorian couldn't help but to lean down and whisper to the girl beside him "Actually, I think his cooking is what's scaring them away." He looked over to the fried insects he seemed to be selling, their crispy legs were coated in a thick brown sauce. The vendor's eyes wiggled and bulged as Dorian and Laun passed "Ah~ are you two interested in a sample!?"

The excitement of the crowds and merchants and all the tantalizing smells from the food stands distracted Laun from all her nervous thoughts and soon she was laughing up at him and pointing out everything that caught her eye. She had looped her arm around Dorian’s elbow so she wouldn’t lose him in all the people that bustled past them in the streets. If they did get separated she wasn’t sure she’d be able to find the apartment again.

This is the first time she had ever been to any planet than the base that she grew up with BG. Even though her father would travel to lots of planets he would never let her leave the training facility and so the only knowledge she had of other places was what she had heard from the trainees, the few who would talk to her. She would also gather magazines that she could borrow or steal from rooms and the cafeteria when no one was paying attention. Once she had found a Galatical Geographic magazine and had spent days re-reading all the stories of different planets and the animals and races that lived on it.

Now she felt like she was in one of those magazines surrounded by so many different races and foods and culture. Her senses were on overload as she tried to absorb as much as she could of it all.

Laun blinked when she heard Dorian talking and drew her eyes from a tall necked woman who stood above the crowd with long red hair and thin eyes and little slits that Laun guessed to be her nose. Her eyes when to the fried bugs that Dorian was commenting on and she gazed at them curiously then looked at the seller excitedly, “I want one!” She then looked at Dorian questioningly, “Do others usually eat bugs? We never had such food in our cafeteria.” Her nose tingled when she smelled the sauce on the horned beetle that was handed to her by the green man and she scrunched her nose when she caught a peppery scent. “Are these spicy?”

The slug let out a boisterous laugh "Oh my no!" he bellowed "The one you hold in your hand is sweet and tangy! Go on!" He urged "give it a little nibble!"

Dorian stared down at the bug and he couldn't stop his upper lip from curling in disgust. He hadn't actually expected the girl to want to try the bug. "How are you even supposed to eat that?" The shell of the beetle looked thick and black and hardly penetrable with teeth.

The vendor chuckled "It's easy!" He plucked up one of the beetles himself and easily ripped off the head and proceeded the suck out the juicy insides of the insect. "There!" He smiled
broadly the green guts of the bug still clinging to the gaps of his awkwardly spaced teeth. "And then," He began as he sucked on the back of his teeth to get the last of the bug's meat "You can nibble on the legs and use them as a tooth pick!" He proceeded to do just that and then popped the leg into his mouth with a resounding crunch.

Dorian could feel his stomach churn at the sight and he placed his hand on his stomach to sooth the rolling. "Well," he sighed turning to laun "Seems easy enough."

Laun had truly been willing to try the fried beetle until she watched the alien bite into it and heard the sickening crunch of teeth crushing the crisp outer skeleton. With the green she saw the green liquid oozing out of the uneaten part of the bug and across the man’s teeth she dropped the stick and continued to stare at the guy with horror. As the man dug at the leftovers between his teeth with one of the insects leg Laun blanched and turned her face to Dorian, “Let’s get out of here before I throw up.”

Dorian couldn't stifle a laugh at the dire expression the girl now wore. "What, you can't wimp out now." He teased as he slid his hand to her back and urged her close to the stand again.

The slug' eyes bulged as he watched the beetle slip out of her hand. "That is a delicacy on some planets!" He screeched, deeply offended by her careless actions. He huffed and his shoulders sagged heavily "Just get out of here if you're going to be so heartless!!"

The woman who ran the herb stand glided over to the trio her hands folded delicately in front of her. "Oh, don't mind him" She mused sweetly, her voice a comforting hum over the bustle of the crowd. "He's just very sensitive, it's one of the reasons he can't gain any customers." She rose her chin to the slug, her pink iridescent skin looking even more radiant with the colors provided by the setting suns.

The slug hissed at her "If you're not going to purchase something get out from in front of my shop! Especially you, Kilythia!" He turned away to grumble and flip the current batch of beetles he was currently grilling.

Her wide set mouth curled into a slight smile and she bowed her head down towards Dorian and Laun. "If you two are interested in a real delicacy" She said loud enough for the slug to over hear "I have some very sweet tea blends." She took note of how Dorian's hand rested on the girls back and she brought a slender hand to her mouth "Perhaps, you'd like to try an aphrodisiac blend?" She turned to return to her stand which was no more than a few feet away, her skirts billowed around her feet in an opulent blend of pastels and she eagerly ushered them close.

Laun followed the woman eagerly and stopped before her stand to take in the many bags of blended teas that were arranged neatly by type or flavors. She had tried tea before, at the base, and at first she hated it because of the bitter taste but then one of the older soldiers had showed her that adding sugar too it gave it an earthy sweet flavor. It had been her favorite drink from then on so she was excited to try a new flavor. “Is it sweet? The aphrodisiac?”

It was a weird name but looking at all the teas displayed on the table she realized they all had strange names like earl, Rooibos, oolong, and even a few that were written in a strange language that she didn’t understand.

The woman began to effortlessly mix the herbs while waiting on a pot of water to boil. She set out two small pink tea cups that had pastel hand painted flowers across them then set two metal balls that had holes in it which she had put the tea mix in. Laun watched every step curiously because she had never seen anyone make tea before, the kind at base had been pre made in large jugs so everyone could come and fill their cups quickly. The way the woman made it now seemed more delicate like each set was important and needed to be done carefully and precise.

"Ah, the aphrodisiac is quite sweet" The woman mused and she considered Dorian once he moved to stand beside Laun. She gently pushed the teas forward once they had been properly steeped "For that blend I use the sweet and floral petals of the hibiscus flower along with the crisp and refreshing skin of an apple that sings with a nice dash of savory ginseng." She pulled her hands back and folded them neatly in her long sleeves. "Also a few secret ingredients I can't disclose." she chuckled.

Dorian reached his hand out to stop Laun from picking up the tea and he eyed the woman cautiously "What you're serving right now.." He paused to nervously clear his throat and he muttered quietly "isn't the aphrodisiac blend right?"

The woman blinked at him before letting out a soft laugh "Oh gods no." She picked the bag she had just taken their sample from and offered it to him. "This is honeydew."

Dorian stared at the packet a moment before taking it from her. He read the label carefully before pulling his hand away from Laun's and nodding his approval. "Alright."

Laun looked up curiously when Dorian blocked her from picking the cup up and pursed her lips in annoyance as he questioned the woman then finally decided to give her permission to drink. “Why are you so suspicious all the time?” It was one of the more annoying traits the dark haired man possessed, he always seemed so paranoid about things and so up tight as if he never just let himself loose.

She stopped herself from saying anymore about it, they had been getting along so far and she didn’t want to get in an argument with him and end up being dragged back to the apartment since this was one of the few times she actually got to be out and about. He had been relentlessly strict about her leaving without him and she had only twice been able to convince him to let her out with Yogi and that was only after Yogi swore not to take her anywhere he would usually go. This had made her mad, he was always dictating everything the same way BG did.

She shook her head and grabbed the small cup, taking a big drink of the hot tea, now wasn’t the time for her to be thinking about all this. There was no point in wasting this day thinking about things that she could brood over when she was stuck back in the small room.

Laun eyes widen when she tasted the sweet beverage and she looked up at Dorian excitedly, momentarily forgetting her inward battle “This is really good!”

Dorian's dark brows knit at her question and he couldn't stop his lips from tilting into a pout. He was not always suspicious. Well, even if he was this girl beside him was just so clueless that he felt he had to ask the questions that would probably never occur to her. He couldn't contain a sigh as he picked up the still steaming liquid and brought it to his mouth.

The scent was almost sickeningly sweet and he quickly swallowed the warm drink. He had never been a fan of tea but he did enjoy the way the heat felt on his throat. "It's not bad" He shrugged and he set the now empty cup back on the counter. "Do you want to get some?"

She thought about her answer for a good two minutes before making her decision and putting the cup firmly back onto the stand. "I don't know how to make it." she then lifted her eyes to meet his, "You don't like sweets right? What kind would you drink?" She questioned and looked at the various kinds on the table.

Dorian picked up one of the packets of tea and read over the ingredients carefully "I like sweets, just not drinking them." He tossed the packet down and walked behind her to the other side of the table. "I won't drink it so get whatever you want."

The woman smiled and she pulled out one of the metal balls she had used earlier. It was shiny and still in it's package. "Making tea is very easy, dear." She explained the very simple steps involved. She leaned over the table "You have a microwave right?" She waited for nod from the girl and explained that's all she really needed for a proper cup of tea.


Dorian ran his fingertips over the premade mixes examining them all while the two girls talked. His hands stopped on a darker blend and he picked up the spicy mix and he reconsidered his prior aversion to tea. "We can just try a few."

-holds up a few items the woman had given her, which included the honey dew blend, and smiles up at Dorian when she notices that he also had a bag in his hand and seemed interested to try it. If he got one then she would be able to make him a cup while she made herself one. I would like him to drink a cup of tea I make. It would show him how talented she was, after all the woman had made it look easy enough- What kind is it? -walks over with her good and take a curious peek at the bag, wondering what flavor he had picked-

-reads the label of the tea to her- some dark blend -he explained further before turning to the woman and paying for the goods.-

Lady: -takes the tea bags and everything and puts them all in a bag for her to take home. Before she hands the bag to laun she reaches out and grasps both her hands in hers and whispers- I gave you a free sample of the aphrodisiac. Use it wisely dear.

-Smiles at the woman while taking the bag and nods, letting her know that she would even though she wasn't too sure what she meant by using it wisely. perhaps it was a blend that would help him relax? Maybe she would make him a cup tonight before bed, the guy needed a little help with relaxing, and if it wasn't bitter she might make herself a cup. Once they were done at the tea stall they continued down the path passing many more stalls that Laun had to stop and thoroughly check out. She had even managed to get Dorian to buy her a decorated hand fan at one of the booths (only because the old man selling them thought Laun was cute and practically gave her the fan)), a pointless item but she thought is was beautiful with its hand painted design and its delicate texture. It was beginning to get dark and they had finally came to a stop at an intersection, across from them were many small cafes and restaurants and to the left and right more good stalls lined the streets. This place was truly one of the best trade worlds.- Where should we go now?

-Dorian was a little envious of the fan, not because of the detailing or the design but because the day had been so hot and now he wanted to hurry back to the apartment for some air conditioning. He looked at all the stands that lined the street, the smells of the food stands finally starting to get to him. He turned to her for a moment and shrugged- Get some take out and go home? -With her agreement he walked to the stall where he usually got lunch, ordered their meal and lead the way home-

-follows behind him, swinging the little bag of goodies and humming a tune she had heard a few streat performers playing earlier by one of the stands. Today had been fun but she was happy to be going home since her feet were beginning to get sore from all the walking. Once they were back at the apartment and she had set her bag on the counter she turned to grab some plates- Do you want a plate or are you going to eat out of the carryout box?

-agreeing about not wanting to clean any dishes, she left the plates and grabbed some forks before walking over to the couch and sitting down- Yogi always says that fuck word, but when he says it it seems more like an action or an activity. What does it mean? -digs her box from the bag and opens it, looking hungrily at her food-

-Dorian mulled over her question while he spooned greasy chow mein noodles down. He swallowed hard- well, laun -he hesitated a moment not really wanting to be the one to give her the birds and the bees talk so he figured he'd start with the easier definition- when I say it, I mean I'm ready to relax and not worry about things. -he paused a moment- When yogi says it he usually means to have sex.

-stabs her fork into her noodles and twists until it is wrapped thickly then sticks it all in her mouth. She wasn't sure what sex was but she did understand the other definition, so after chewing and finishing the mouthful she tried the word out herself- After we finish eating let's fuck. -smiles at him proudly-
