There were a lot of things Max liked to keep locked up under wraps, things he knew about or had habits of on the side. He had all kinds of ideas of what gave off the image he wanted people to see, the part of himself that he put out to the world as if that was everything they needed to see. Of course, everyone had their secrets and skeletons they kept hidden deep within closets.

It was hard for him to pass through a florist shop without judging people for the plain and cliche arrangements they asked for. Roses were horrifically overdone in his opinion, though he was biased due to being raised by a florist who had a particular affinity for hydrangeas. But it seemed odd for a man who looked like him to sneer and suggest a wider variety of flowers that gave a more individual meaning to whomever the arrangement was for. Instead, he kept his mouth shut and moved along, looking around for the species he had scrawled onto a crumpled piece of paper.

The problem with Max was that most of what he deemed closed off to others were so superficial that he didn't have much room to consider the more severe skeletons he kept shoved deep behind everything else — including the vast knowledge of flowers and floral arrangements he inherited from his mother. He refused to ask for any help, sorting through and picking out specific flowers after close inspection as he walked up and down the aisles, sticking out dressed in a dark motorcycle jacket and pants.

I've been searching for a trail to follow
The smells that came out of a floral shop in full bloom were incomparable to anything else. It was sweet, earthy, wet and delicate. The one hundred different coloured petals and leaves that sat in pots, planters, bouquets and beds strewn about in every corner left your eyes unable to focus on just one thing for very long. This place seemed to have everything. A flower or a decorative shrub for every occasion. The summer may be nearing it's close, but honey bees could still be heard humming through the large open rooms, coming to and from the many windows, and held open glass door at the front.

In the isles of the store, which always seemed to be a little bit misty, Rory was making her hourly rounds Plucking the occasional dead petal or leaf from the plants that needed a little bit of help. Occasionally she would reach over to a brightly coloured watering can and spinkle the soil that seemed a little too dry for her liking. The redhead hummed songs that nobody else would understand under her breath, completely out of tune with the music that played over the overhead speakers.

Turning the corner, careful not to knock over a particularly fragile batch of lilies, Rory noticed a very out of place looking man at the other end of the store. He seemed to be keeping himself busy, so she tossed a friendly smile in his direction. As per retail expectations. "You have lovely taste." She spoke softly, yet just loud enough for him to hear if he wanted. Not usual for what she would normally see a man pick. Of course, that was a bit unfair to men. Anyone was capable of appreciating plants. It was simply nice to see something other than red roses in somebodies hands.

Somehow, he hadn't noticed the redheaded girl who swung through the aisles with a practiced movement, expertly navigating past flowers that grew out into the pathways as if they were going to grab onto the next passerby that didn't pay enough mind to the reaching plants. His own memories of musty, potent smells of flowers didn't have the most positive impression left over, but a lot of them were long forgotten until the next time he stepped beyond the threshold of bustling city and into a contained forest.

Ah! Shit! he bumbled, nearly dropping the slip of paper and one of the stalks he held onto with a strangely delicate touch. It was the same touch he used on his tiny, minuscule trinkets he soldered and picked at, but it also worked just as well with picked flowers. Yeah, well I have a list, he grumbled, straightening himself as he weakly waved the scrawled note in his hand, complete with shoddy handwriting. Not hard to read labels and shit.

Maybe he was still a little frazzled that some girl got the jump on him when he least expected it, but Max felt just as out of place as he looked.

I don't need help, he added quickly with a gruff tone, his steely gaze switching from her back to the rows of flowers as he looked for the next one on his list. And you shouldn't sneak up on people like that. A poor excuse when she had been humming softly through the aisles, but he didn't want to admit that he hadn't been paying much attention to that or the music.

Rory felt her entire upper body jump a little bit when the man seemed to be unusually frightened by her soft voice. Part of her wanted to laugh, but she held it inside in fear of offending him. She was never the type to scare anyone. She didn't have the mannerisms capable of doing that. Most of the time. All she could do was apologise. "I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to frighten you." She said to him while she looked down at her cream coloured flats. They matched well with her faded salmon colour sundress. Her ginger hair complimenting the colours on her pale skin. She was not going to make any assumptions. She herself had the dominion of raised senses, perhaps he did too. She never knew what people were hiding under the surface.

She nodded to his claim that he did not need her help. Part of her was relieved, but the other part was disappointed. Getting to work with the more interesting and beautiful flowers was what made this job so enjoyable. She would not push him, he did seem to be doing a very good job on his own. "Well if you change your mind I will be around the corner." She gave a gentle point with her index finger to the center of the room, opposite of where they stood. With that she took her leave, taking the corner to leave him outside of her view.

Rory walked to the collection of two desks. One, covered in petunias and daisies. All bright colours with ribbons and tacky looking cards and inserts. The other, covered in a selection of unusual plants. A blooming black dahlia that was half it's usual size. Next to it a deep purple orchid that smelled sickly sweet. This was where Rory worked. Surrounded by plants of her own making. Colours and sizes all unusual to a trained eye. She simply just didn't like the usual. Sitting down in her chair, Rory peered down at her feet to see her sleeping pile of white and brown fur. One perk of being able to sell one of a kind plants is sneaking your dog to work day. Despite most of her own plants being kept at home, she did not feel like hiding all of them from he world. Free to be chosen by any who desired them. Shared and loved by anyone who just asked.

She began cutting lengths of lace ribbon, keeping herself busy.

You didn't frighten me, Max sneered back at her defensively, putting emphasis on the word frighten. I just didn't see you there... okay? His brows furrowed in slight frustration, eyes shifting around before settling back on her and puffing out his chest slightly so he stood up straighter. How silly of her to think that someone like her could scare someone like him.

Silly indeed, he thought to himself as he watched her wander off to do her own thing as he continued to search for the plants on his list on his own, keeping himself quiet under the music that played, something very much unlike what would be playing from his own stereo.

Eventually, after some distracted perusing, he finally found everything he was looking for and brought it up to the front counter, peering over to see the sleeping pile of fur that seemed big enough to be a guard dog. This is it, he muttered, laying down everything for her to see and take account of as he reached into his pocket to pull out a ratted leather wallet full of crumpled bills. In one single row, he laid down rue, blue and green hydrangeas, and azaleas, all neatly next to each other and in a neat fashion, almost in a presentation.

How much? he asked gruffly, still trying to keep his posture upright and towering.

If was kind of unfortunate that Rory was used to people talking to her this way. Or at least in variations of this type of tone or language. It was almost like she was an irritant on this city that it couldn't quite shake. She sighed under her breath slightly. Not because of what the stranger said, but because it was things like this that made Lux cackle with this giddy amusement. Oh god he loved seeing her squirm. He was wheezing inside of her skin, grinning ear to ear. "Oh dear, look how much you annoy him. Just talking to him makes him hate you. Must be embarrassing." He whispered in a raspy little tone. It made her shudder slightly, almost imitating a child down her spine.

Sooner than she would have expected, the man brought his collection to the front of the store. This distraction was enough for her to momentarily mute her demon. Rory looked it over, doing some quick math inside of her head before waving her hand over them and smiling. "Just give me 10. It's nice to see someone who knows what they're doing in here." After she said it, she immediately hoped that he wouldn't take that the wrong way. So she quickly looked down to take a small bill he had laid out and give him the appropriate changes from her tiny little metal cash box she kept in her drawer. Rory didn't really notice the customers talk posture or puffy nature. She didn't know him to notice these things. Like how he probably didn't notice her sheepishness.

The commotion above his head caused Breki to rise from his slumber and let out an annoyed grumble. Rory payed no mind other than to let her hand fall down to Pat him on the head. "How would you like them wrapped? She asked the tattooed man. Not paying any mind to the Akita who had stood up from his napping spot to wander around directly between the man and the door. He let out a slightly defensive snort, staring him down with nearly black eyes. Almost as if judging him silently. Harmless, really. Even if he didn't look like it.
