Tara smiled at the newcomers, waving her hand; Not regally like a queen, but with casual excitement as if she were ushering them in. “Welcome everyone!” She said, her smile now turning into a grin “It is a pleasure to meet all of you. Please come in come in! It has been…
“Hi there!” Tara said, greeting the girl with a smile “It is nice to meet you! Tell me, what is your name?”
“It’s Mae,” the shapeshifter replied with a slightly shy grin. Looking at this woman’s stunning dress, Mae felt her long white torn dirty-hem dress was well…..poor. She was half tempted to grow a pair of wings and hide the dress behind them. Though she tried to act cool. “May I ask for your name?”
“Oh!” Tara said, realizing her own forgetfulness “My name is Tara! I apologize for not telling it to you first, I should have know better after so many years learning etiquette.” The queen said blushing only sightly behind he warm smile.
Softly chuckling, Mae gave a shrug with a fully brilliant smile. “It’s ok, Tara, I’m just as much at wrong as you are with etiquette after my many years. I mean barging into your place unannounced and obviously under dressed. To which by the way, your gown is stunning.”
Tara glanced down at the girls dress. It was tattered and worn, but not ugly. She looked back up at Mae with a smile and said “Thank you! Your dress is just fine, I would be wearing something more comfortable myself, if I were not always in the public eye… So tell me, what brings you to this place?”
