(( Sure! I take pictures of all my sewing crafts. I don't make much clothing, so I'm excited to see how this comes out myself haha. ))

Souza nodded in understanding. "I see. It's a shame more people aren't here. I like this place." She smiled, taking another bite of her food. "It's not that hard, as long as you accept yourself. And I guess being blind helps - you can't see dislike. Hearing it is different, but Mana tells me seeing and hearing it makes it troublesome." She commented again on Fiona's words. Mana looked up when she was mentioned and reached out to Fiona, touching her hand gently. A tingle would go through her hand and up her arm, giving the sensation of comfort like a hug would. Then she retracted her hand and began to eat again. "Oh.." Souza started again, finishing chewing before she went on. "I guess I need to ask... How much are room here? We would like to pay day by day if you offer something like that. Never know when we'll hit the road again." She said with a small smile and tilt of her head. her eyes still staring straight in front of her - any one across form her may even feel a little creeped out by the stony gaze.

Yeah…Fiona wasn’t one who had a whole lot of confidence in herself, only for her to blush at the feel of Mana’s kindly touch of comfort. She gave a smile of thanks to the mute girl. “Actually, we don’t charge for the rooms. If you’d like to stay for a bit…a few days or just one night, we just ask that you help out with keeping your room clean…and if there’s any special meals you’d like…then simply supply the food; like…going to the market and such. Otherwise…you can come and go as you please.” Frederick explained rather politely. “Though…this meal is on the house.” He added with a wink.

Souza gave a small nod to the thanks Fiona gave her and finished her meal quietly. Souza listened to Fredrick while she ate the last of her meal as well and smiled. "You're very generous. I don't think we've been to am inn were we didn't have to pay!" She said with a small giggle and smile. "Don't worry about food for us then. We like to eat a different place everyday." Souza said with a small smile. "Well, not everyday because there aren't that many places... But I'm sure Mana and I would like to have another meal with you guys! You're nice to be around." She would tell them, placing her hand sin her lap and tilting her head down just slightly, no long looking straight ahead, but more towards the counter.
Mana, when done, would clap her hands together and keep them there for a moment before letting them rest in her lap - a cultural thing she picked up while they explored eater areas that signaled a person was done with their meal. She liked to learn new things of different cultures and use what she learned from time to time.

“Well, we’re not your average inn…we only ask that you stay out of the southern wing until we’ve had a chance to finish renovating it. We’ve made sure to keep the doors to that area locked, so you won’t mistakenly wander into the wrong area.” Frederick said with a nod and a wink. Fiona sat up and cleared off the dishes so she could clean them. “And we’ll be happy to have you around for dinner whenever it pleases you. And from what I hear, if you’re looking for another place to eat…I would like to recommend the Rustico Inn…it’s on the outskirts of town…the opposite side of us here, if you’re interested. As I told Fiona earlier, I’d like to take her there to give them a try sometime.” He added with a nod.

"Oh? They have good food there? I think someone in town recommended it to us, but this inn was closer you see." Souza said, recalling a similar name. It got a little quiet then, even Mana noticed and started to look around. Souza gave a small sigh and stood up form her seat. "It's nice to be indoors tonight. It's getting hot outside - even after dark." She would comment, walking around in a circle before hopping onto her hands again, then going to balance on one hand while the rest of her was spread out like a star. Mana smirked and slowly got off her stool, crouching down to the ground. She laid her hand on the ground flat and just second later Souza would gasp and loose her balance. She did manage to turn however so that she only landed on her bum. "Mana!" She whined, giving a pout on her face. Mana's shoulder shook a bit, a sign of laughter though she made no sound. Her smirk turning into a small playful smile. "Oh you and your electricity!" Souza pouted and huffed, crossing her arms while remained seated on the floor.

“Well, our rooms are insulated to keep the cool air in from the AC.” Frederick commented, chuckling to himself as he watched the girls play. “Would you like me to show you around, so you can pick which suite you’d like to stay in? In case no one has told you, a lot of the rooms are interconnected, and if there’s any one you’d like to keep strangers from entering, we have keys and locks to keep them secure for you.” He explained as he stood up from his seat, stretching his arms back and cracking his neck some.

Souza finally got up again, though not the usual way a person gets up. She bend backwards and slowly lifted herself onto her hands before lowering to her feet and standing up again. "Oh sure, I'd like a tour!" She would say to Fredrick, turning towards him, feeling the vibrations through the ground and her feet to now just where he was. Mana stood and nodded to Fredrick, waiting for him to lead the way. Along the way both Mana would look around, memorizing places with her eyes until they got to a room that they would be renting.
"So all of these rooms connect somehow, besides the hallway?" Souza asked, intrigued. that is, if she had caught that right. Mana as well was interested and wondered why the house was built like that. She also reached out to touch Fredrick's arm, asking for a room with two beds it seemed. If available that was. They twins were just used to sharing the same space - especially out on the road like they were.

Frederick actually offered both of his arms to Mana and Souza, so he could escort them and they could be guided and speak with him a bit more comfortably. “You understood correctly.” He said to Souza. “The house was originally built with a few meager rooms…enough for a small family. But as the family grew, so did the house. Especially when the various children and other relations got better paying jobs and such. It later became a vacation home…big enough to house all the various relations. But the set up changed…they just added on without fully connecting all the hallways together, but instead just connecting them through a series of different rooms and staircases…and the levels are rather uneven as well, depending on who designed that area of the house. In the east wing, you’d think you were in the attic on the third floor, only to find a ladder that leads to the fourth floor.” He explained with a good hearted chuckle.

“Two beds…? Let’s see…follow me through here.” He directed, opening the door to a large room filled with the most random assortment of exercise equipment, including a small trampoline and some balancing and swinging bars. “I think through here we’ve got just the room for you.” He said as he opened up a set of sliding doors for them. Inside was a beautifully simplistic suite; two twin size beds rested against the far wall, surrounded by a large wardrobe and two smaller dressers, and an end table between the two beds. A lamp sat upon the table, and a couple of floor lamps lighted the room with a large ceiling fan lazily turning to keep the air fresh. “Our parents used to tell us how their spinster aunts used to stay here, and the door to the right used to be their art room. The door to the left is the bathroom, and then I think there’s another door that leads from the bathroom as well that enters into another suite that’s currently not in use.” Strangely enough, the color scheme was primarily red and black, with gentle accents in purples and burgundies.

gaia_star Souza and Mana gaia_star
Location: Their room / Accompanying: Fredrick

Mana would take Fredrick's arm, in case she were to communicate something else to him, where as Souza ignored it and only walked beside him. She knew it was offered, but just didn't really care to be escorted as such. Call it a bad habit, but she rarely liked people leading her anywhere. It made her feel weak in a way. Once in the room, Mana would slowly let go of his arm while caught in the trance of memorizing all that was in this seemingly perfect room for both of them. She would walk over to one bed and sit down, running a hand across the sheet that lay on it already. "Hm. Hmm-mh." She would hum to her sister who went and stood in the middle of the room, the raised her right foot and stomped down, holding still for a moment or two before smiling big again. "Wow, this is a nice room. The vacant room is pretty big too. I think we'll like it in here. Thank you, Susan." She said with a small giggle, remembering to call him by the womanly name he mentioned before. Mana gave a small bow of her own and pointed toward what was supposed to be the bathroom before heading that way, obviously to use it.
Souza just stood for a moment and breathed in the air. "Ah, this place makes me want to do all sorts of fun tricks!" She admitted, twirling on the balls of her feet for a moment before stopping in the direction of Fredrick. "Is there anything you would like us to help with at the moment? I don't think just buying our own food will pay back for this room." Souza smiled sweetly, tilting her head to the left some. "Oh oh I know!" She suddenly had an idea and clapped her hands in front of her. "How about Mana and I put on a show for you two? Free! Hehe.." She offered, knowing they were well paid for performances and that it may just fill the hole of the need to do more for the room. It also wasn't the first time they had performed for a place to stay either, when they were broke that's all they could do to keep out of the cold in winter time.

Frederick bowed in response to Mana, before chuckling at Souza for calling him Susan. “You’re very welcome. And I am most certain that Fiona and I would love to see your show! Do you have any equipment that needs setting up? We have an auditorium-esque space you could use, and…if you are missing something, I’m sure with a bit of exploring you might find a suitable substitute for it.” He offered, unsure what they might need, if anything at all.

Mana came out and adjusted her her long sleeves as she walked up to the other two in the room. Souza brought a finger up and tapped it on her chin as she thought for a moment. "Well, I'll need a big ball... that's a main part of my act. Mana will need some sort of target or dummy. Oooh, do you think there's a way to have a hanging target? Oh and of course we'll be performing outside. Mana like to perform at dusk, if that's alright. Maybe more people will even show by then!" She said, offering up some optimism as Souza requested the gear they would need. They never bothered to really bring things along with them seeing as they always found things to work out in every place they went. Especially if it was outside. Nature can be like one giant gym to the two performing twins. Mana looked from Souza to Fredrick, just now getting what was going on. It would seem that she didn't hear them talking before, but this was usual of Souza to offer up a show in order for room. Mana would then reach into the outer part of her wrap top and pull out a black pouch. Unwrapping it, there would be man throwing knives - all of different size, shape and decorations. She flashed them to Fredrick as a reason to need some sort of target and for the show to be held outside - so no one or the establishment would be harmed.

Frederick closed his eyes, nodding at the list of things they requested while he tried to pinpoint where he might find such items. “Let’s see…we have a variety of balls in the bin here in the gym room…” He said, gesturing back towards the room they entered through. “And the shed has some targets back when a granduncle of ours used to teach archery.” Glancing back in the other room, he looked at the swinging bars. “I’m sure I could rig something up for a moving target…” He added thoughtfully. “I think we do have an open glade out past the west wing…if you like, as it is already getting quite late tonight, I can put out flyers tomorrow for an evening show that might attract some attention.” He offered.

Mana shook her head at Fredrick's offer at flyers and put a hand on her sister's shoulder. "Ah, right..." Souza would say, her blind eyes shifting to where her sister was standing. "Mana says there's no need for flyers, unless you're only promoting your inn. We don't want to make people think we'll be here for a very long time nor expect constant shows. We're traveling performers, sure, but we do shows on our schedules because we do travel at unexpected times." Souza would explain, putting her finger tips together in front of her while she spoke. Mana would look over to Fredrick then and nod when Souza was done. Removing her hand, she would place it on Fredrick to communicate further. What he would get is the understanding that they would perform either tonight or tomorrow and if people happen to come by, then that's what happens. But she also wanted to tell him that they just don't want to be advertised as Mana considered this more hobby than career of sorts. Then to say to just hand a target on a rope on a tree branch for her and to let Souza pick a ball, if he could, of her act.
The spot where she was touching would start to go numb after all that electricity she was sending and when she pulled away it was a pins-and-needles feeling for a few moments - like when your foot slowly awakens. Then the mute girl would walk past him into the gym room and out of that to the main area again, preferring her own look-see for the moment. She was more the solitary one after all. Souza would only stand waiting as that happened, then lift her head some to look at Fredrick with her blind eyes. "Well? Everything okay?" She'd ask curiously, not knowing what her sister may have told the man.
