There wasn’t really room in the quarters she and Zack shared in the ShinRa building for a proper vanity and mirror, but Ino was used to living in dorms and had adapted to the smaller spaces those offered. It wasn’t so much of a bother, truly, so long as there was time to get ready and nothing had to be rushed.

But for tonight, they had as much time as they needed. Hours yet before the production started and everything (what little they needed) was packed for the trip they were taking tomorrow. (Which was so very different from the one their classmates were on.) Ino shifted, the silk of her dress clinging to her as she moved, and tried to think if there was anything she’d forgotten.

She studied herself in the hand mirror, touching up a bit of lipstick, before glancing at Zack.

“Almost ready?” she asked, though, of course, Zack had far less to do to get ready, when it came to dressing up for a night out.

Or perhaps she was asking about tomorrow and what that would bring.

[NFB. For the one mentioned, though open for phonecalls.]

Really, Zack's idea of 'getting ready to go out' mostly just involved a spit-shine for his boots, and maybe brushing his hair, if his date was lucky.

Well, how else do you suppose he'd go about getting it to stand on-end like that, no matter what he went through?

"Almost," he replied, with a lopsided sort of lilt to his usual smile. "I mean, looking forward to the play and stuff, right? The study group said it was pretty highly recommended. Kunsel really liked it, too."

Yes, talking about the play was way easier than talking about going to visit his folks.

Hey! Kunsel was awesome, Ino! He knew more about the inner workings of ShinRa than most of ShinRa did.

He was also very good at keeping that fact on the down-low, when it came to the Turks, perhaps.

"To the play?" Zack offered a tiny smile. "I guess so. I mean, I should be, right? It's got a big name, anyone who's anyone has seen it."

Yes, it was so, so much easier to talk about the play. Sorry, Ino.

Hey, Zack knew nothing at all about being a nobody. Honest. Except for how most people didn't even want to acknowledge that he existed until his uniform had gone from violet to black.

Being a nobody kinda sucked.

"Well, that, and it's supposed to be a good show. And... I don't know, maybe we'll learn something, right? This is culture."

Culture involved a lot of waxing poetic about wandering souls and ripples on the water.

"I'll try not to drool on your shoulder," came Zack's bright reply.

So... yes!

"We better," Zack laughed, "before we miss the whole first act, just trying to get our heads around all of this culture."

Culture was a big deal, okay?

Hey, Turks were totally allowed to wear their civvies around when they weren't on duty! Really, it was just that modelling new costumes was a pain in the ass it was so much easier to be on-call, if you lived in the same outfit all of the time.

Zack didn't seem to mind that she wasn't in the Turks' uniform, anyhow. He was humming, merrily and somewhat off-key, as he led her to the elevator.

Unlike her trainer in the Turks, Zack did not generally frequent the stairs.

"Yeah?" Zack actually laughed a little, looking her way. "Seriously? Do they think you need the exercise, or what?"

"Well, we could always just skip the elevator and run down the stairs, instead," Zack laughed.

Because that was just what they needed, if they wanted to make it to Loveless Ave. on time. To run down 49 flights of stairs.

"What? You can't run in heels?"

Could you, Zack?

"Okay, fine, we'll take the elevator. This time. Next time we go see a play, though? The stairs, all the way down!"

He'd do it, too. He might just take them in leaps and bounds and jump from platform to platform, though.

"It's been really, really popular," Zack agreed, nodding as he crossed his arms and the elevator started its long trip down. "It's the one show that's a sellout every night, no matter what. We're kind of lucky that we managed to get tickets at all, you know?"

There was the other great thing about Kunsel. Make enough sadfaces at him, and he always comes through with things like two seats to a sold-out show.

"I guess it would have to," Zack laughed. "I mean, they have you, right?"

He was being silly! But at least he was being silly and flirty, right?

Well, they had her more than his own folks had had him for the past... half-decade, now.

Wow, it had really been that long?

"And that makes me the lucky one, doesn't it?"

"I think..." Zack leaned forward, because right here on the elevator was an awesome time to steal a kiss, "I think I don't even have to ask. It's a given."
