Two families filed into the seats...
Tue Dec 1, 2015 17:48

On the right side, four humans. On the left, four girtablilu.

The Vances sat down calmly. Joan Vance, Valon's mother, was a short, jolly-looking woman with vibrant red hair. Eight-year-old Alice and ten-year-old Ezra sat on either side of her. Thomas, Valon's stepfather, was a stern-looking Asian man who kept glancing at Ezra.

Kala's family, with their unusual body shape, could not take seats, and simply lowered their bodies to the ground. Kala's parents looked startlingly like her, though their hair was a natural dark color. Her older sister, Araunya, wore a low-cut red dress. Her younger sister, Jeta, held a basket of flowers in her soft pincers, and was clad in a puffy pink dress.

Ezra looked mildly irritated. "Dad, why do I have to hold the rings?"

"You're the only young boy around here. Also? This is your brother. Surely you can do this for him." Thomas shook his head, remembering how often he'd said that to Valon.

((Ezra's the ring bearer, Jeta's the flower girl. Just so everybody knows.))

            "Sorry... my family's kinda new at the whole 'wedding' thing. I bet Jeta's with the rest of my family." Kala took a moment to admire herself in the mirror. "Wow... never thought I'd look this good in ... more

                "I know hydration's important." She hefted a sports bottle that looked about half-empty.

                  The Aviator grinned. "Right, I'll be back in a bit." She waved and slipped out of the tent, going in search of Kala's sister. It wasn't very hard to find her; four girtablilu are hard to miss even... more
                  • "He's being very defiant... I've told him that a few times now." "Alright, fine..." Ezra was outnumbered now; he reluctantly stood up and walked off toward Valon's tent. Thomas shook his head. "And... more

                      She glanced over at the Jengs and back to the Vances. "Right, sorry, gotta go. Lots to keep up with today." She waved and headed over to the Jengs, stopping in front of the littlest girl. "Hey, Jeta, ... more

                        She looked up curiously at the Aviator. Her carapace wasn't as shiny as the other members of her family, and looked softer. Unlike her sister, she also had a Roma accent. "Do you know when I throw... more

                          The Aviator bent so she was at Jeta's eye level and held out a hand, her expression softening. "I'm the Aviator; Kala asked me to be her maid of honor. She's in the tent back there—" She nodded ... more

                            The eleven-year-old girtablilu cheerfully scuttled off toward Kala's tent. "Thank you, miss Aviator!"

                              ...and set off after Jeta at a much more casual stroll. "See, Kala?" she said, stepping into the tent. "I told you I'd take care of it."
                              • Kala offered a few comments here and there, in the same tongue, before turning to the Aviator. "Yeah... she's excited, if you can't tell. Though Araunya was a bit disappointed... she was hoping I'd... more
