fashion statement

Isabella eats up as much magic as Vivian can teach her; both of their library cards see a lot of use. The list of spells she's allowed to cast gets longer, and eventually she gains permission to cast one or two by herself. Vivian worries, but she's also proud. It's nice to see Isabella so motivated.

Now that Isabella has a medallion and a library card, they go to the Avalon more than just "as necessary to replenish her cash." It becomes something of a habit for Vivian to arrive, drop Isabella off at the library, and then wander around to sell her charms, do her shopping, catch up with her friends, or whatever else she feels like exploring that day. The critters are blinder to human society and politics than she might like, but she thinks she's getting through to some of them. If they want to blend into human culture, these things matter, after all.

Today in particular being a nice day, Vivian and Isabella took the whole day to go out. After a protest demanding equal rights for LGBT employees, they head into Avalon. Vivian leaves Isabella at the library and goes to grab a cup of tea from the cafe next to the marina. She drapes her jacket over the back of her chair, but when she sees the woman at the next table eyes her Out and Proud! button on it warily and grimacing, she removes it from the coat and puts it onto her shirt, front and center. Take that, nosy lady.

A different lady also peers at the button when Vivian draws attention to it. She looks, not quite lost, but not like she knows where she's going, either.

"...Maybe," says the stranger, in accented but clear English. "I'm looking for healing magic."

The lady sits. "I'm Gianna," she mentions. "Gianna Trafeli. My brother is in Italy but I could try to have him moved here, if it would be easier."

"If it's just more painkillers - ordinary painkillers are very nearly good enough, the trip would be very hard on him - but if you can buy me time to look harder -"

Gianna's mouth forms a thin line and she nods. "When I go home I'll - make another try at the Avalon nearest there, and if I find nothing, I will check again with you and have him moved. I can pay you."

Gianna blinks, perhaps confused.

"I - I - all right," blushes Gianna.

"Yes, all right -" Gianna writes down the address of her hotel.

"That would be very helpful - I don't really know where to start, it was lucky that I found you, isn't it?"

"I'm not sure I'd know a magic shop if I saw one," Gianna admits.
