    ...What was that music? That earned a glorious pause out of Rasa'Jeqkogoai, the Sangheili briefly stunned. Why... Why had Aya put on such scandalous music? It wasn't a genre very familiar with the warrior, thus its meaning was lost upon him; if Rasa'Jeqkogoai had been aware of such connotations... Nevertheless, he stripped down to his bare skinnies and shook out the jitters from his powerful, bulging limbs. In the soldier's mind, wearing only his under-armor produced no crime. There he was in all his sculpted, beefy glory - he looked at both Aya and Tally, eyes denoting ignorance at the women's heinous thoughts. "If the lack of chest wear should become a problem for you, Tally, I do not mind compromising," he stated. Even a Sangheili could be made attentive to human norms.

    "Perhaps wearing the very same under-armor I have on now will suffice?" It was nothing overly flashy or detracting, and Rasa'Jeqkogoai was rather comfortable in it. "Will that please your concerns?" he asked. Can't say that this music was soothing his...

    And what exactly was that look for Aya? Tally could do nothing but raise an eyebrow to the others behavior. Yes, she knew the joke the other was trying to tell, and while she could appreciate teasing if it was all in good fun Tally didn't want Rasa to feel uncomfortable. The other seemed to be able to grasp the basics of their culture alright, but who was to say that he could completely understand their humor? If they kept it up who was to say that they wouldn't make the other feel uncomfortable, or make him think that they were laughing at him?

    Tally didn't mind the teasing, she just didn't want it to get out of hand and indirectly hurt anyone. I just-I'd really hate to impose against other cultures is all. There were a lot of different species that lived on Portal Breach, and they all dressed very differently. She didn't want to force the other to conform to what she was use to just because she was use to it. While I appreciate the offer, we can at least try it for a bit. See how it goes maybe? Then we'll decide if it's necessary that you wear something over your chest. It really was the best compromise that she could come to. To at least try it the other way.

    Perhaps Tally would prefer if it was just an apron. Eh, eh~? Aya wasn't particularly mindful of the music, or how scandalous it appeared as of now. But that pause was glorious and confused Aya just as much. "Does the music bother you? I can always try for something else, if it does." She stood by in waiting, while he gave full sight in his bare necessities and showed of the beef-cake he truly was. Good gracious, why were aliens seeming to be so...muscular, Kev excluded of course.

    The draculina was interested in how Rasa was willing to compromise with Tally over the issue of chest showing or chest covered, quite interesting. Maybe they had kicked down the isle without her knowledge, she would be awfully sore if a certain plant wrangler was keeping secrets. Now what really matter was Tally's input about chests and Rasa's thoughts about the soft, soothing caress of careless whispers. As she saw it, this definitely was making for a far more interesting day then she had initially planned. Though she didn't seem to have to wait long, as Tally was more than ready to compromise with the Sangheli over the trifle of chests which was a very good thing. "If you would like, I could begin the measurements so the discussion can go on unhindered for you both." It was time to see how big the lord of beef actually was, it looked like his arm was bigger than her entire head. Aya entertained the thought of how terrifying this friend of Tally's must be a brawl. A non-stop clobbering machine she would figure.

    "Nonsense - you have been generous enough to offer me work and I, therefore, shall not make a nuisance of myself." It was not Rasa'Jeqkogoai's establishment and he was not in charge; ergo, he found it completely logical to adhere to Tally's customs, the reigning manager of the shop. Even if she was a human, she was still a very good friend and the last thing he ever wanted to happen was for someone within the mall to complain. A compromise, however, could be achieved. The Sangheili nodded, seeing no further reason to object. "Yes, there is no harm in trying." It may be very well that Rasa'Jeqkogoai wanted to wear a top in the future, too. He had yet to make a decision on that.

    And by all that was sacred and glorified, Aya was a mischievous imp! While the music was a tad disturbing, Rasa'Jeqkogoai thought better than to make a peep about it. This was Aya's shop and she was fashioning a set of clothes for him; it wasn't wise to offend the host. "No, I... don't believe the music is bothersome," he replied, sounding just a little bit conflicted. Aya sounded eager to get her measurements and the warrior obediently held out his arms. He stood as still as possible, posture straightening. "I am ready," he indicated. If Aya thought that his arm alone was bigger than his head, then she may find a treat in measuring Rasa'Jeqkogoai's firm thigh. The waist and buttocks went without saying, but if he could have understood these two women like a man from Earth...

    ...Hopefully this would not take very long.

    Tally nodded, compromise could be made, they could figure out something between the two of them so that this would work. Though she wasn't sure she could call herself generous, she did need the help, the only thing that she might be being generous about was overlooking Rasa's lack of a resume. But really, not a lot of people had, heck even she hadn't had one when she got her job.

    Aya was certainly something

    Leaning back in her chair Tally was content to watch Aya go through the measuring process. She'd watched one of her cousins get measured for her wedding dress before, and she found the entire process fairly boring. But there wasn't much else to do and Tally certainly wasn't going to be rude, so she was content to sit there and wait for Aya to finish. Tally still had things that she needed to talk to Rasa about, but some of those would have to wait...A shame she had forgotten to ask him earlier.

    Guilty as charged, Officer. And due to whatever Rasa's belief was, Aya was in all ways completely innocent to the machinations of her radio and who didn't love smooth jazz? But keeping hushed up might be the best, after all he wouldn't want to end up in something pink. Though...pink and brown did go together in some cases, it left plenty of wide room for interpretation as well. Tilting her head to the sangheli, the vampiress took his word for it and was soon in the mindset proper for measuring. It was definitely a good thing that she had a extra length measuring tape for the beef was strong with this one. "If you are ready, then I will begin. Try your hardest to remain still and to breathe normally." Didn't want him holding his breath and making the measurements too small, busting seams was not an attractive look.

    Carefully sliding the tape about his waist, keeping contact of her hands o him to the barest minimum before moving away to jot the number down on a paper. Aya turned back, noting Tally's silence but watching of the measuring she wasn't sure exactly what to say. Surely such things as 'Would you look at these gams' or 'So Tally, how did you too meet' wasn't going to fly. "So...Tally. How is the shop? Not still dealing with those deadly plants, are you?" Smooth, Captain. Smooth as silk she was. While she awaited news of those plants the tape measure a thigh, a meaty thigh it was. Soon that number joined that of the waist before she knelt carefully to place the start of the measure to his hip and then stretched it to his feet. My, my what a large lad he was, certainly going to be easier with the clothing he wanted for much looser fits.

    Aya wrote the final numbers with the others, humming and nodding to herself briefly as she considered the measurements. Looking to Rasa she seemed thoughtful before rolling up the tape. "Feel free to re-armor yourself. All measurements are done. Before I begin any rambling I do have a question. Do you prefer blue? I think it is a color that suits you quite well, a nice lovely dark blue." Blue to go with that lovely shade of brown he was.

    To maintain stillness and breathe... Rasa'Jeqkogoai took a deep inhale and focused on standing like a statue, mind fully intent to keep perfectly motionless. It was a little... hard, however. Ironically the Sangheili was subconsciously cautious of Aya's hands being so close to his body; a body that was no longer armored and now fully exposed. Deep breaths, deep breaths... Try not to think about careless whispers. He sent a dismayed glance the jukebox's way, slowly becoming a critic of this so-called jazz music humans were fond of. The genre was not for him.

    The Seamstress wrote:"Not still dealing with those deadly plants, are you?"
    ...Best not to answer that. The question was meant for Tally and Rasa'Jeqkogoai did not let on that he knew about Tally's... ahem, hobby. No, he kept quiet and did as he was told, not moving a muscle. It would be another handful of minutes before Aya was done. She instructed him to re-armor, of which he was grateful.

    "Blue is a fitting color, yes," he replied, already starting to redress himself. If Aya thought that his skin tone went well with blue, then he was not going to question it. So long as it wasn't pink, there was no issue.

    They're only dangerous if you don't know what you're doing. Much like driving a car, dealing with a certain piece of equipment, or even dealing with a wild animal. It was only dangerous if you didn't respect what you were working with and acted recklessly. Tally did her best to not act recklessly, well...anymore.
    Progress did require some risks after all, but thankfully she had been in the business for several years, earned plenty of knowledge by trial and error and screwing up a lot.

    Tally rested her chin in her hand, watching Aya finish her measurements and recommend colors. Blue Tally agreed, blue would look very nice on Rasa. Especially a darker variant of the color. Still though, there wasn't much for her to do right now other than observe. Tally politely turned her head to yawn, it had been a long day.

    For a big beefy mass of muscle, Rasa had been one of the best so far she had to measure in her time as a seamstress. And with good stillness things always went much, much quicker a benefit for both parties or rather those who came to shop. But the agreement of how blue was just a fine color pleased her to no end. It could be said that having someone come in an ignore her suggestions more or less burned her beans something awful. But how fortunate for her that Rasa and Tally were gracious enough not be strenuous or irritating. A walk in the park actually.

    Wringing the tape measure in her hand in thought as Tally apparently still kept about those more unstable plants. She couldn't control her, of course but the vampiress also couldn't help but worry as a friend would for their safety. Clicking her tongue softly she set the measure down on the desk the paper nearby with Rasa's numbers scrawled down neatly. "If you insist, Tally. I always worry that one day that one of them will get far too hungry and see you as the perfect snack." Or a perfect hair ball, hindsight more or less for said plant. But back to business she had some final questions to ask to assure herself that all the needs were going to be met.

    "Seeing a color has been decided on, is there anything else you can think of that you desire with your clothing? Any further specifications?" Always better to ask than to bemoan any complications later.

    Tally wrote:"They're only dangerous if you don't know what you're doing."
    And did Tally know what she was doing? However, this was not Rasa'Jeqkogoai's business to openly voice dissent at his new employer's practices. It would be quite rude and disrespectful of him; a silent road was better than a shameful one. Although the seamstress' words did little to quell the Sangheili's thoughts, should something happen to Tally one day as a result of her... sigh, hobby. Nevertheless, Aya had asked a question and Rasa'Jeqkogoai pushed such unpleasant thoughts from his mind - for now. Situating his chest plate back where it belonged, he gave its clasps a resounding snap! and soon answered. "There is little else I require," he said, dispensing with any frivolous talk. Blue was a favorable color against his skin and having suitable clothing to replace his armor was a starting point. However...

    "However, I must request that the material you use be light and easy for me to navigate in." With legs like these, it was a subtle admission on the proud warrior's part that he may need... assistance while living in a world not designed with his particular build in mind.

    Peas in a pod when it came to that dangerous hobby Tally had rapidly became consumed with, but she was an adult and as Aya hoped that Rasa working there would be extra muscle to keep rowdy plants in line. Turning over the measuring tape in her hands, she found her eyes going elsewhere while the Sangheli once more armored himself, cutting down to business which was surely becoming one of the best consultations if not the only one to go so smoothly in all her shop owning time.

    Setting her sights back on Rasa, she considered fabrics suitable for his request that would also hold. She was probably going to have to experiment later with that but she nodded none the less. "Of course, I'm sure that we can accommodate something to fit your needs exactly." No need to worry oh worting one, this draculina would take careful consideration when it came to dem gams. Glancing over to Tally, Aya smiled remembering once more what her dear friend had made the mistake of joking of a long while ago. "You know, Tally...It still isn't too late to find a nice white dress. Even if you aren't interested now, surely you can kick the idea around? Spring dresses are all the rage nowadays." Ah yes, Zurg's impish nature was surely rubbing off on her but she couldn't help it, Tally was simply not a friend she had the pleasure of getting to see often.

    Oh Worting One... Thank the Gods that Rasa'Jeqkogoai was not a mind reader. Instead, he was in perfect bliss with his ignorance and felt immensely pleased at how this venture had ended. Finally, new attire and a professional was overlooking it! No longer did he have to carry around this heavy armor and suffer beneath the elements; although he was determined to wear it should the Sangheili ever feel unsafe or hesitant. "You have my eternal gratitude for doing this," rumbled the warrior. While the Sangheili was not overly fond of outsiders and he was yet to fully embrace them and their outlandish ways, Rasa'Jeqkogoai was not going to insult someone Tally invested trust into. One such outlandish custom that needed a pause was the mentioning of a... white dress? His head tipped to the side, the Sangheili not certain if both Aya and Tally were aware of something and he wasn't.

    "Is it customary as payment for one to wear a white dress in thanks of your patronage?" he found himself asking. Would... Would he have to wear this dress? Rasa'Jeqkogoai yet again stood there awkwardly, unsure if he should speak further.

    As always Aya was hilarious.

    No thanks, I think i'll be fine.

    Rasa wrote:"Is it customary as payment for one to wear a white dress in thanks of your patronage?"
    That gave Tally pause for thought, right in front of her was perfect pranking material, and if she was a crueler friend she probably would have taken it. But given recent events and her current mood she was feeling more than merciful. No it's not, Aya's just joking around with me.

    Tally rose from her seat and stretched, an audible cracking sounding from her spine. Should we get going then? She asked.

    Eternal gratitude? Quite literally wouldn't you agree? Aya would have given a chuckle at that, but she thought better of it. "Oh, well how could I say no? It is such a joy to create for a different type of look. Variety is the spice of life, after all." Take it as you will, outsiders did have a colorful way to say things but the point did get across one way or another. But Rasa's inquiry of whether he was to be garbed in a white dress as thanks had her lips pressed into a line as she stifled laughter at such a image. As amusing as it was to picture him that way, sadly she would have to decline as white simply was not his color.

    Tally however...

    "No, no, no. Simply a old joke between Tally and myself about certain customs. No worries, you won't be wearing a white dress unless it be your own personal taste." Perhaps the alien fancied that sort of thing, who knew after all. Still in denial about desiring a that dress, but one day she would get one. One day, for certain. Seeing as they were raring to go, Aya saw no reason to force them to loiter. "It was an honor to be able to assist you, once the order has been filled I will be sure to contact you. If there is anything else you require, please do not be afraid to say so." Aya didn't think there would really be any more assistance needed but you could never be too sure sometimes. It was also much better to let them leave as their own pace that be pushy.

    An old joke between Tally and the seamstress... Rasa'Jeqkogoai's furtive glance revealed all: he will definitely have to inquire as to what this joke was about. What was this fascination with a white dress? It was soon time to depart, however, and neither of them wanted to impose upon Aya any longer. "Thank you. I currently do not have a means of contact, but I work with Tally at her shop. I am certain you may contact me there on any given workday. When either myself or the both of us come back to pick up the order, I will gladly pay the amount in full." With nothing more to say, the Sangheili dipped his head respectfully at the seamstress and proceeded to lumber out. When there was a chance to catch Tally out of Aya's earshot, however... The taller alien looked down at his friend and tried to keep both tone and expression neutral.

    "So, what is this about a white dress?" he asked. Some things were off left unsaid.
