RP: The Ex Who: Fiona and Becca What: A potentially awkward run-in When: 19 September 2027 Where: Petals and Pretties Warnings: None Completion Status: Complete
Since making the decision to scale back her work at the shelter, with her Aunt Addi's blessing, Fiona had found herself helping out at Petals and Pretties more often, usually in the greenhouses, tending to the plants, but every once in a while in the shop itself. Today was one such day, as a worker had called out, and she hadn't wanted Clary to have to manage the shop on her own today. It was a good excuse to spend time with one of her favorite honorary cousins, anyway.
A bit slower than a typical Sunday, Fiona found herself changing up the front display, reorganizing it and prettying it up a bit more, when the brunette woman she recognized instantly walked in. Rebecca Ollerton, someone she probably never would have known had their paths not crossed professionally with her work with the DMSS and Becca's with the Fawley Foundation. She'd always quite liked Becca, though it felt terribly strange seeing her now, knowing that Fiona was dating Becca's ex. Oh, it was early days yet, but she didn't think it was possible for such a thing to not be at least a little strange on some level.
"Hello, Becca!" she greeted her warmly, pushing her own awkwardness down and drawing on her innate positivity and kindness. "Welcome to Petals and Pretties. Is there anything I can help you find?" she offered.
