What was once an empty, quiet spot, soon began to fill with the denizens of this world. It turned out, the primitive technology was a projector to play movies. Here the denizens played different films on a schedule, with Yuel and Lumina being right on time for the next showing! One of the boys who sat near the front, mentioned something about Market Square. Lumina was under the impression that's where they were. Another passing convo revealed the city's name, 'Twilight Town'. A very apt name, given the beautiful sunset sky. There was only one thing which seemed strange, something she'd whisper to Yuel.
"The sky hasn't changed since we got here. Maybe the sunset never ends, that sounds fascinating, don't you think?" well, at least Lumina found it fascinating but it didn't take much to pique her curiosity. On the other hand, Lumina was as sharp as a knife. As well as very intuitive too, so she was going to learn as much as she could, sooner than usual. What captured her interest just moments before the film began, was the strange ice cream bars. They had a nice scent, salty but sweet too. Before the day's end, Lumina was determined to get her hands on one.
Granted, she should probably think about finding a place to stay. The thought crossed her mind subconsciously but... her love of sweets thoroughly captivated her. Right up until the film began, which was quite a treat given it was in black and white. When was the last time she saw such a film? As she thought back, she could recall scenes in black and white, for dramatic effect. The whole movie though? That left her memory foggy but receptive to suppressed thoughts. When the film was done, she was thinking about a distant memory of her Father.
Lumina's emotions swelled deep within, uncertain if she was sad or happy, maybe anxious. That film just brought too many memories to the surface. Most importantly though, "That was...fun!" she admitted before clapping. "I'd like to watch more but there's some things we should settle first." namely they'd need a place to stay. There was also the fact that this was the start of their journey and they were a little...
"I never did tell you what I'd do at the start of seeing a new world. I was so moved by your humble response. It reminded me to be more aware of the little things." Lumina smiled now, even though her eyes revealed she was up to something. "So, if I was in a new world, I'd want to surround myself with new... well, everything. New place, new you and that means changing how you dress, how you look and how you see things." she playfully raised her hands up, waving her arms playfully. Then she'd stand up, clearly rearing to go somewhere. She spun around on the sole of her left shoe. Shopping for new clothes, that never ceased to be a good thing but the lavish attire she loved, was the first to go. Now at the start of her journey, it was like she was reclaiming her youth. Her current attire was an expression of her old ways, long forgotten by her other self. Given the fashion style of those in this world, she was curious to try some clothes on. The style seemed to resonate with her, just as the film did.
In truth, this world seemed to resonate with her in general even if being 'at ease', more so meant being able to have lots of fun.
