I didn't wake up till late, coming downstairs when it was nearly afternoon. Rubbing the sleep from my eyes as I let out a loud yawn.
"Morning sleepyhead," Loria greeted, smiling softly. "Zeke explained why you slept so late, but I saved you some breakfast. Or are you more in the mood for lunch?" She offered.
"Since you have breakfast made I'll eat it," I replied, taking my seat at the table and looked at her curiously.
It had only been 2 days since I landed on Earth and everything had already been turned upside down.
Setting the plate down in front of me, she sat across from me. Picking a piece of bacon up, I tapped the piece against the plate and thought a few things over.
"Hey, Loria, did Zeke talk to you about everything that happened last night?" I asked softly.
"He didn’t tell me everything, he was pretty vague. He won’t ever share things he views as personal," she gave a reassuring smile. "If what you want to share, you’ll share."
I chewed on my bottom lip before eating some of my breakfast, mulling everything over. I didn’t want to rely on just the demon for everything and Loria was being so supportive. She deserved to know.
"He was showing me the stars and I had a memory re-emerge. I think...well I figure that the voices are of my family and one of the memories…was of my death," I explained softly, setting the food down. "I apparently was going to be telling my sister about the stars and died before I could…"
"Oh," she let out a soft sound before sitting back in her chair. "What do you want to do? Do you want to try and remember more?"
"Maybe," I replied before finishing the piece of bacon. "It just, everything is happening so quickly that I can barely even focus."
She reached out and patted my hands. "It’s okay Lark, you don't have to rush it," she assured and I gave a nod, sitting back and looking at the meal. Seeing the food made my stomach roll.
Loria seemed to notice and changed the topic. "Well, today we’re shopping, would you like to tag along and get some clothes so you don't have to keep borrowing Zekes?" She asked and I gave a weary smile.
"Why not?" I replied weakly offering a small shrug before leaning in to try and finish the food.
"Awesome! I'll see if Zeke will loan you some clothes again and shoes for the trip," she grinned cheekily before heading off.
Though, I did have to wonder where Zeke was in the first place. But I pushed that away and went to clean my plate, putting them in the drying rack as Loria came back.
"Thank you Lark! Zeke put the clothes in your room, so once you go get changed we can head out," she skipped into the kitchen with a grin.
"You seem excited," I commented and she let out a soft chuckle.
"I love shopping," she explained with a small shrug, grinning cheekily at me.
"Ah, okay," I gave a half hearted shrug before heading upstairs to change, blinking at the outfit that he had left for me. The clothes looked like they’d eat me alive but it wasn’t like I had much of a choice.
I was right.
I gently knocked on Zeke's door, the demon opens it, hair pulled back with a headband, and raised a brow. "Yeah?" He asked curiously.
"I need something to help hold up these pants and are you coming shopping with us?" I asked, one hand holding up the jeans that kept wanting to slip down.
"Yeah, give me a moment,” he replied and disappeared back into his room to find a spare belt and handed it to me.
“I tried to find you the smallest clothes I have, but it seems you’re smaller than I anticipated,” he commented as he tossed the headband to his floor.
“Gee thanks,” I snarked before ducking into my room to work the belt on, puffing out my cheeks as I heard his snickers filter from down the hall.
The trip was a short drive in the small four-door, aiming for the heart of the city. "Say, Lark, do you know anything about cities and shopping centers?" Loria asked as we stepped out and I leaned against the car, already feeling overwhelmed by the noises.
"Not really," I said softly, barely able to hear it myself.
"Alright, just stay close," she assured and they started towards the doors and I was close behind, hugging myself as I looked around.
