but I just can't smile without you
"Well, that was a waist.." Emi murmured to herself with a sigh when she managed to get the skirt fitting onto her waist while strapping the double straps of the suspenders that held up the skirt over her shoulders, her curvy hips causing the short skirt to fluff out a little more than was perhaps intended. "Now if I could only keep it abreast!" As she tried to center the top with a giggle and then tried to pull out at the material to cover more, a gasp escaped her lips as she blinked her eyes in shock upon realizing that there was no material to pull out: the top was too small. The worst part though? It was too late to change. Her knock knock joke spell that she used to unlock and enter the home in the first place was loud enough to have alerted someone by now.
The dreaded moment Emi realized that she had committed the crime of breaking and entering for no reason had finally come. Well, it was for a reason, but now that reason seemed to have been gravely miscalculated.. or more like missed the size completely. Sure, she'd been doing this for 5 years, but she wasn't perfect. It wasn't like she had a mirror to notice her size to be able to judge other people's sizes well enough. It was kind of the same thing as buying something straight out of the store without trying it on; not that she would know much about that given her financial situation, but that's why she was a thief. Emi quickly put on a small orange jacket on top in hopes of it covering a little more, then made her escape. With another quick escape out the window, the laughing thief hopped on the descending ladder and then jumped onto the drain pipe on the side to slide the remaining way down, all whilst giggling to herself.
In an instant, Emi took off running towards the nearest hotel. Hotels were always great places to hide from in the lobby, but especially to steal from. What's more, plenty of otherworlders here tended to go to hotels, which was exactly who she planned on being the next target for a particular item she needed. Best thing about hotels? They could always just blame the maid and then the people would get their money back! Unfortunately, her small, ill-fitting green top wasn't exactly comfortable to run in, given how much of her breasts were still showing outside of it, causing her to look down and adjusting it while running to make sure it was still covering as much as possible until she accidentally ran onto someone, causing the poor person to topple over onto the pavement.
"Sst.. ahahaha!" The petite, minty haired thief in the orange bandana laughed through the pain, knowing that it was probably going to be a bruise tomorrow. Laughing through the pain always made it hurt less. "Sorry about that!" Emi apologized as she scanned over the person that fell down to see if they were alright, although her dark green eyes lit up upon catching what looked like a phone slightly jutting out of his pocket of his pants, the rectangular shape only confirming that it was the device that she had seen many people use around her to "call" people. It was exactly what she was looking for! "Yeah.. Let's not make a habit of running into each other like this! Hahaha" Emi joked at her own expense with a sheepish grin and bent down slightly to extend her hand out to him, "Here, take my hand!" She offered with a smile and used her strength to pull him up to his feet while her other gloved hand deftly made its way into his pant pockets to grab the phone. "Let's try this again!" Emi gazed up at the tall boy with a grin, pretending that they were starting their meeting all over again, "I was hoping I'd run into you!" She bit her lower lip as she tried to stifle a mischievous giggle upon deftly unzipping his pants in the process of stealing his phone, ""I just wanted to say...Your zipper's down! Pfft! Hahaha!" Emi tried to whisper it as much as she could whilst stifling her giggling with her free hand, before she finally burst into laughter.
In an instant, the comedic thief emitted her laughing magic in hopes that it would temporarily incapacitate him. "Welp, I'd better take this call! See ya later, cute stuff!" Emi waved his phone in her hands with an impish grin and then dashed away after tossing him a wink. She ran as fast as she could in hopes of losing him, not knowing just how her laughing spell would affect him. She couldn't leave anything to chance. Sometimes, the sheer will of some people enabled them to run after her while laughing, and sometimes it allowed others to have the effects last for only a short amount of time. "Come on, come on.. How does this work? Shouldn't be that hard if a bunch of people use it..!" Emi tried to press on some buttons with a puzzled expression as she ran, all the while trying to look up to make sure she wasn't going to crash onto anyone. She was determined to call someone very important to her and nothing was going to stop her this time!
