Once Beauty got an idea in her head, it was difficult to sway her. She went about her plans methodically, first setting up a goal, then planning each step as meticulously and carefully as she could, missing nothing. Planning had been one of her strengths at home, and it'd served her well when her father's fleet went missing. Taking care of her sisters and father required quite a bit of planning.
And planning is how she ended up in what she thought was a daring dress
, hair brushed to a glossy shine, makeup darkening her eyes and paling her skin, walking straight for the neon sign and its awning beside it. She didn't know what she'd find, exactly, once she went through those doors. But she knew that this is where she needed to be to have the best chance at finding Eric.
After thorough research at the library, and not a few magazines and books, Beauty thought she knew how to achieve her goal. The first thing she did was pick a mark, someone she was sure had no intentions toward her (even though Baba seemed to think otherwise). The second was to find out what he liked. If he owned Fangtasia, then he must like it. She learned more than she cared to know about nightlife, then shopped until she found the dress she was wearing now. The third step was to find and engage Eric, then use the advice she'd learned from her research at the library.Fangtasia.
Lestat told her once that she should never go here. She hoped that he was wrong.
