I like to talk. A lot.Her hair was the color of a starless night, her eyes violet like burning coals...
Hey there, my name is Irene, or Weary Geisha, or Street Geisha. I suppose you wanna know 'bout me, hmm? Aaah, so much to tell, so little desire to tell it. Again, my name is Irene, and no, I don't have a last name, before you ask. My age isn't really your business, but I /will/ tell you that I'm somewhere between 1 and 100. :3 And that I'm older than Seventeen, and younger than Twenty-Five.
I'm generally a goofball, if I'm in a good mood. I try to be empathetic, but my attempts fall flat on their face quite often. It's hard, everything in the world is so rough, and when you live on the streets, you've seen enough suffering that it doesn't effect you that strongly.
I actually pride myself on being pretty traditional. Every inch of me is they way I was born, no GeneCo parts at all. ^_^ Weird thing to brag about, I know, but it seems like everyone is trading their humanity to hasten their death in a roundabout way. Now, you must be thinking 'But, Irene, how do you expect to be a Geisha if every part of you is natural?' 'What the heck is a Geisha, anyway?' 'Why are you a Geisha, when you aren't even Asian?'
Those are very good questions, kiddies. lD I don't care if you asked them, I'm answering them, so sit your skinny butts down.
1. It's not so much that I expect to be a Geisha, as much as sharp objects terrify to the point I'd rather stick my head down a crocodile's throat than have surgery. 8D
2. What's a Geisha, you say? -Pulls out encyclopedia and pair of jaunty reading glasses- It says right her; Member of a professional class of women in Japan whose traditional occupation is to entertain men. A geisha must be adept at singing, dancing, and playing traditional musical instruments (e.g., the samisen) in addition to being skilled at making conversation. The geisha system is thought to have emerged in the 17th century to provide a class of well-trained entertainers set apart from courtesans and prostitutes: though geisha sometimes had sexual relationships with their clients, they were supposed to entertain primarily through their accomplishments.
If you want to catch me, check around Werehouse number 235. :3 That's usually where I settle for the night.
