Oh, but she wasn’t at all that loud—Or that’s what she sounded like to herself at least. And what a foul word he spoke in her presence..Rozalin decided to let that slide, if she needed his assistance.
“I am not being loud at all, you should take it upon realization that I am in need! Nonetheless, I am glad I have found the right person. You see, upon coming here, I cannot find anything to wear, other than my own dress..! Other clothing stores are too bland, and I am hoping that you are suitable to help me.”
The ex-princess folded her arms across her chest as she spoke in her normal, dignified manner…There was only one problem, the girl had none of this place’s currency! All she had was the bit of money she had in her coin purse from back home.
[ Loud, soft, he just didn’t want onlookers to suddenly look down on him just because he’s a six-foot brute working in a tailoring shop. Even being here for as long as he had, he felt uncomfortable in publicly stating his choice in job. Hey, it paid decently, so he wouldn’t be poor for the holiday season!! ]
“So ya need wardrobe help, s’that it?”
[ His arms crossed, head tipped slightly. Well, if that’s it, he could easily provide services. He’s already gotten paid, so a little volunteer work wouldn’t hurt his wallet, he thought. Fabrics and tools were provided at the work site anyways. ] “Eh, sure, I can help out with that. Th’shop’s still open if y’wanna stop by. It ain’t my shift though, but I guess I can, uh… help ya.”
“Huh— shit don’t say that so loud!!!!”
[ He grumbled, but nodded. ] “Yeah, I’m th’guy that works there— calm down, damnit. Whaddaya need?”
At that last comment made by the oh so flamboyant Kanji, Naoto’s eyes became slits, and she started to wave her arms around as she spoke, flopping the long sleeves of her labcoat every which way. Though she maintained the same childish tone, her words were different.
“You gaudy buffoon, and you think that a true adult walks around without proper attire? Speaks in that theatrical and exasperating tone?” Her tone switched back to the mighty and all-knowing one she had presented before. “You’re nothing but an effeminate moron the likes of which a person of my high caliber has no reason to speak to!”
“Hmmmmmmmm? I’m sorry, could you repeat that in a language that someone as moronic as I could understand, darling.”
[ He had this condescending tone in his voice, hand on both hips as he leaned his large frame forward, smile refusing to leave his face. One hand lifted, index digit pressing the tip of her nose. ] “If you don’t like it, then leave. I’m not keeping you here, sweetie. Uhuhu, not even close! You’re just fun to toy around with!”

At the mention of being babied, it was like a switch was turned in the shadow’s mind, and her nails dug further as her eyes welled up with tears, whining up at the larger shadow. She didn’t like being spoken to like this, no, she didn’t like it at all! And she wasn’t going to stand for it either!
“Noooooo! Stoooop it!! Stop talking to me like that, I don’t like iiiit! I’m not a baby, I’m a big boy! I’m a real big boy! Treat me like an adult, that’s what I am so stoooop!”
[Oh boy, here come the waaahmbulance. It’s not like a Shadow to not speak out of line, of course Kanji not holding his tongue for any given reason. She’d probably leave some nasty marks on the top of his hands by the time they’re done. How long has it been, anyways.]
“Ahhh, that hurts!”
[His hands released her face, thrown to his sides with a little too much enthusiasm.] “I’ll treat you like one once you act like one~!! Hooonestly, adults don’t throw little hissy fits~!!”
The shadow’s eyes widened as her face was grabbed, and her lips twitched in irritation. However, they upturned into a smile as she brought her hands up and laid them on top of the others. Her nails soon began to dig into the fellow shadow’s hands.
“Stop spouting such bilge, you worthless, asinine cretin. Remove your extremities from my perfectly dauntless features post. Haste.”
[Feminine nails dug into bare skin, the shadow hissing softly from the dull stinging sensation. Still, that smile has yet to be wiped off his face. If anything, he’s enjoying this little Shadow’s game, if you would even call it as such. It only drove him to keep hold, almost threatening to squish her face right in with that brutesque strength of his.]
“Ooooh, does big girl not like being babied~? Isn’t that too bad~!!! Afraid I can’t do that, sweetie. I let go, and -poof-, you’re gone~ Besides, I just love it when you get all angry~ All that fury just brings shi-hi-hivers down my spine, ohhh~”
“You’re lucky that I like you~ Otherwise I wouldn’t be so ge~n~tle”
Goodness, this man was an idiot. Both in his shadow form and non-shadow form. But exceptionally so in this form.
“…just what are you blathering about, you fool. Get out of my sight. Go back to your bathhouse.”
[He leaned over, both hands on his hips and a quasi-sincere smile laden on his face.] “No~”
“Mmmm you’re as feisty as ever, aren’t you~? Try not to blow a fuse, honey, you might ruin a perfectly girlish face~” [Almost on cue, shamefully did the shadow take the other’s face in both hands.] “You wouldn’t want to get wrinkles, would you? ♥”
“Hey imbecile, if you turn your optics towards me, you’ll notice that I’ve been standing right here the entire time.”
[Turns his head, fingers to his lips in surprise.]
“Oohhh, there you are~!”
“I’m soooo sorry, I almost forgot how teeny tiny you are~!!! I could just eat you up, you’re so bite-sized~”
