Bronze JardinGirls Night Out
With classes done for the day, Gwen headed to meet her friends and call Mrs. Vallée to see if she can pick me and my friends up in the wheelchair van "Hello Mrs. Vallée I wonder if I can asked a favor a friend of mine with a wheelchair needing a ride as we all want to go to the mall for shopping."
"Well certainly, it is wonderful you made friends on your first day of classes" Mrs. Vallée said "I will be around shortly."
"Shall we take some of your measurements without your fat suit on Jezebel?" Gwen asked Jezebel "I will help us pick out something nice for you."
"I not have the money to afford any clothing, so no need to bother" Jezebel looked a bit dejected and showed Gwen some pics on her phone "These are my dresses I have to work with."
"moo-moos and a Greek dress, no, no, no that just will not do ... Just let me measure you please" Gwen insisted "I will just tap my piggy bank, just for you."
"But my tail feathers ...." Jezebel protested.
"Alteration is key word for today" Gwen smiled "I do know how to sew, a little, and make alterations."
After doing the measurements Gwen giggled "You and I are a perfect fit, sans your tail feathers and talons, if I can wear it so can you."
Haley and Kyle waved to Gwen and Jezebel "Hello, we still on for a girls night out?"
"Absolutely!" Gwen said "Got to get each of you a whole new you!"
"Where is Salome?" Haley asked?
"She said she not going to make it as she already had a date" Gwen informed them as she looking at a text message from Salome.
Honk, honk ... the girls see a metallic green van pull up to the curb, wheelchair accessible "Anyone looking for a ride?" Mrs. Vallée asked.
Guinevere helped Jezebel and wheelchair into the van. Once in the van it was time to help Jezebel out of poncho and started helping Jezebel into her fat suit "That must be very hot" Gwen stated.
"It is, but it the only way I can get around without exposing that I am a cryptid" Jezebel said sadly.
"Hair styling time!" Guinevere said with great gusto "To the Witches' Beauty Parlor."
"Great choice" Mrs. Vallée said "I can use a new hairstyle myself, and it is cryptid friendly, so just keep with the poncho for now as it more comfortable then a fat suit!"
The staff of Witches' Beauty Parlor treated the girls like royalty, and each got a new haircut. For Guinevere she opted for two tone hair style with red hair underneath and top of head remained pink. The staff informed her that the latest dyes should not cause her get sick, and that they can dull the pain of having her hair trimmed. Kyle went with a smooth, beautifully sophisticated sleek style with her hair dyed below her earlobes a beautiful deep red. Jezebel just added a lock of black hair, already liking her Grecian hairstyle. Finally Haley went the most extreme of the girls with a short 60s haircut dyed lavender. As for Mrs. Vallée, she went with something short and sassy that is an easy haircut for a woman of her age to easily upkeep.
"Where to now" Mrs. Vallée asked the girls.
"Liza Clinique" They all chimed in.
"That place is expensive to shop at" Mrs. Vallée made sure the girls understood.
The girls all looked at Guinevere who been texting and begging her father for a larger allowance. At that moment Mrs. Vallée's cell phone rang.
"Hello Mr. Van Dyne" Mrs. Vallée said "I see, um ... well then I guess the girls get a special shopping spree then, Thank you for the call Mr. Van Dyne" as Mrs. Vallée hung up the call.
"So your daddy's little girl" Mrs. Vallée smirked as she looked at Gwen "Off to Liza Clinique, and by the way Gwen your father filled up my account with some mad money for you all."
Gwen was reading the text from her father telling her the spending limit of the girls $300 each and not become accustomed to extra mad money in the future, just her allowance. Gwen texted back hugs and kisses.
Once at the mall the girls made a beeline to Liza Clinique and was greeted by Becky the store manager.
"Good evening and welcome to Liza Clinique, if you needing any assistance at all please it to my attention!" Becky pleasant tone of voice was very inviting.
The girls were all giggles trying out various outfits.
Gwen was trying to figure what look cute on each of the girls "Jezebel I am thinking skirt and satin blue sleeveless blouse with open back, so when you go to Delacroix Theater with Elias you can be completely comfortable and you can spread your wings if you like."
"Delacroix Theater?" Jezebel asked "Would I not be killed for showing my cryptid form?"
"It a cryptid friendly theater" Gwen said to put her mind at ease.
The girls spent just over $1100 dollars, between clothing, makeup and some nice sparkly jewelry at the mall.
Then the girls left the mall and spent a couple of hours at Mrs. Vallée home so Jezebel could get comfortable and try out the cloths, paint talons, finger and toe nails. Both Mr. and Mrs Vallée enjoyed having the house bubbling with laughter of young girls.
"So let me get this straight your whole island is a valkyrie sanctuary for harpies and cyclopes" Haley asked?
"Yes and it 20 miles from the nearest land so we can be ourselves, the Greek government has listed it as a national reserve for wildlife, they just not aware it for harpies and cyclopes, seems the vampires are helpful to us less fortunate cryptids" Jezebel explained then giggled as she showed off her beautifully painted talons "We have three complexes in total on island."
"So you would have no problem being asked out on a date by a cyclops then?" Gwen was making sure.
"None at all" Jezebel smiled "Ooo Kyle that is a beautiful red dress you be wearing!"
"I not really sure I should date André Allard" Kyle confessed.
"Would you rather date ... say Iggy" Gwen asked?
"That your date" Kyle said.
"Iggy said he had a crush on you Kyle since you were children" Gwen informed Kyle "So question is would you rather date Iggy?"
"Yes, but ... it be strange as he more a brother then boyfriend ..." Kyle was to continue talking.
"Stop" Gwen put her fingers to Kyle's lips "A boy who is like a brother, loves you, you trust, you know and care about is more worthy then one hot guy ... just give him a chance, he may be your one true love, even if he is a nerd."
"What about you for a date" Kyle asked?
"No worry about me, I blew my chances with my childhood sweetheart a few years ago, I crushed him" Gwen said that with a tear in her eye "But on the upswing I will go out with André Allard so he still keeps a date for tomorrow night."
Gwen been texting both André Allard and Iggy the whole time she been chatting with the girls to make sure the switching of dating partners will go off with no hard feelings. Thankfully Gwen scanned the tickets given to her by Layla so had a number to call for movie times and set up transportation for the girls, except for Jezebel who will be picked up by Elias. Good thing that Iggy had Elias's phone number.
"Hello may I speak with beautician Elias" Gwen spoke into her cell phone as she set it to speaker mode.
"Hardy har har" Elias voice could be heard "I not remember giving you my phone number."
"Well what can I say I am resourceful, and I have you on speaker phone and found you a date" Gwen said "All you have to do is ask her out, her name is Jezebel, cannot missed seeing her at school, the harpy with teal colored wings."
"Ah! Hello Jezebel it my pleasure to have you as my date for an evening, will you accept?" Elias trying his best to be the gentleman.
Jezebel Shrieked "It am like totally with that!"
"So Gwen have you set this whole date and time up?" Elias asked.
"Yes tomorrow night the show starts at 7pm at the Delacroix Theater, then when show ends at 9pm off to dinner at the Vallée Tower, so study earlier before the movie." Gwen said as she texted him the information.
At that the girls all jumped up and down in joy tomorrow night will be a big night. And with that Mrs. Vallée was once again taxi service to the girls as she drove each of them home.
