joker's always wild
but I just can't smile without you
The most disappointing sister in the world that hadn't seen her brother after 5 years couldn't help but selfishly breathe a sigh of relief as she kissed Wesley's neck, the tip of her nose gently caressing the base of his ear when Wesley flat out told Pom Pom that he was needed elsewhere after hearing the sound of a woman's voice calling for Pom. The former clown in jade hair didn't bother to look at Pom then either, simply focusing on providing affection to Wesley. If the start of the guilt trip was too much, then she could only imagine what his face would've been like.
Just when she thought that the elf that her leg bumped into was going to reward her with a similar demeanor of disappointment, Emi glimpsed over to the elf with an expression of bewilderment and incredulity when she didn't actually hear any arrogant, insulting words from the elf after she failed to reach for her food. Yet the words that the Gaiyan muttered to her afterwards, while seemingly incoherent, made Emi's smile show a mixture of alarm and confusion. "Hm? Almost forgot to..?" She murmured softly with a quizzical raise of an eyebrow and a soft laugh as if she were looking for the punchline in that joke somehow, when a soft gasp escaped her lips as her eyes widened at the Gaiyan in disbelief. That line. That was what she always heard in her nightmares as a child, which always sounded like it came from a lady right before an explosion occurred. "Almost forgot to say goodbye.." She repeated the last line again breathlessly with the smile faltering as a cold shiver trailed down her spine upon hearing herself saying it now, suddenly realizing that the lady's voice in her nightmares as a child sounded very similar to her own voice.
When the elf apologized and left the card with her, Emi stared at the card in her hands as she rested her head against Wesley's shoulder. "...How did he know that?" She murmured quietly, scrutinizing the card with a narrowing of her eyebrows. Only Pom Pom knew about her nightmares on explosions as a child, though she never told Pom Pom about that exact line she heard - only that she heard a lady's voice. Why did it sound so much like her?
“…You seem comfy. Don’t tell me you’re giving up already?”
The relaxing, playful voice of Wesley snapped the disguised thief from her thoughts, causing her long lashes around her large green orbs to flutter as she blinked several times back to face Wesley, noticing that he held one of the shot glasses she had ordered towards her. With a smirk, she turned to place the card on the table next to them so that she could receive his Vlydka shot glass he was offering to her.
“And here I was thinking my partner could actually hold a candle to me. Guess not.”
"..Hmph!" Emi couldn't help scoff at his smug shrug with a playful smirk sliding along her lips. "Seems really bold of you to say when I've been the one ordering the most drinks for the both of us, Wesley..” She remarked lowly with a sultry tone of voice, with a tone that feigned disappointment in her so-called partner. "If I didn't know better.." She added with amusement in the timbre of her velvety voice with a smirk, boldly slipping her arm to link with his arm that was adjacent to hers. "I'd think you were new to this game.." She challenged him with a narrowing of her eyebrows before downing the shot glass and placing it on the table with a clink. "I’ll still let my partner hold a candle to me though..." The jade haired thief retorted in a playfully low voice as she neared him dangerously close while she slipped his tie between her two fingers just beneath the knot of the tie. “Maybe I like playing with fire.. " A smirk curved along the ends of her lips as she gazed into his piercing blue eyes. There was a flicker of excitement in her dark green eyes only thinking about the fires that her pryomaniac brother, Pomme, would start whenever he threw a pretty piece of art into it. "Or maybe, I wouldn’t mind seeing your smile by the candlelight just before I blow that candle out.." The thief in burgundy dress smirked teasingly as she slowly let her two fingers slide down to the ends of his tie and then let go of his tie as she slid herself off of him as soon as the announcements for the games started. Was it an innuendo? Emi would never say, simply emitting a teasing giggle as soon as she slipped off him.
As she listened and watched the announcements, the curvy thief in the burgundy dress stuck the balloon on her butt and tossed Wesley a wink, naturally picking the strongest body part that could pack a punch - perfect for popping a balloon. Noticing the card given to her by the elf on the table, Emi unbuttoned the buttons at her neck and loosened the mesh, exposing her shoulders and her large cleavage enough to slip the card inside and surreptitiously letting it disappear into her pocket dimension without anyone knowing. "Watch. We're gonna pop this balloon more times than anyone else!" The thief that began to blush from drinking remarked to Wesley while she stood next to him with a dangerously competitive smirk before attending to her pesky button at her neck. Stupid buttons couldn't stay still.
