Jen & Priestly's place, Santa Cruz, Wednesday afternoon
Dinah's vacation was half-over, but she couldn't say it hadn't been full. Aside from the Showdown on Sunday, yesterday had resolved things for Trucker, Piper, and Jen and Fuzzy. Awwwwwwww! Next bit of awesome: Kennedy was back in contact!

She'd also lost her bet/challenge/deal with Priestly, so, Red Boots Fashion Show time it was.

There might have just been a tiny problem with the lacings. And her nerves.

[for denizens of Santa Cruz, phone calls, and texts!]

"Woah," Priestly could be heard in the other room. "Where are you going?"

"To help," Tish said. "She's taking awhile."

"I'll help, too!"

"No, you won't."

"But --"

"Sit, Priestly. I've got this one."

Tish knocked on the door. "Dinah? You need a professional opinion?"

"Yes!" Dinah opened the door, and grimaced. "Also, I think I'm lacing them up wrong, not sure they're meant to look like this."

Or maybe she just wanted to chicken out.

Tish laughed softly, slipping in and closing the door behind her. "Or you're just freaking out 'cause you don't normally pull out the stripper boots."

"...possibly, yeah," Dinah admitted, cheeks turning pink. She rubbed one palm across her face. "It's not like I have occasions for these, you know? I just bought them because they looked too cool to pass up, and Momoko was there poking me."

"Well, whomever Momoko is, I like their style. There's nothing wrong with bringing the sexy sometimes, even if it's just for a bet or for fun."

"My best female friend," Dinah admitted. "Going to police academy in Tokyo right now. I wish she could've gotten a break too..." She looked down at the boots. "So, are these right? Should they be-- tighter? Looser?" Aaaack.

"Police academy, huh? Sweet." Tish bent down to get a better look at the fit of the boots. "You want 'em a little tighter through here," she said, gesturing through Dinah's calf, "with a bit of flare up here at the top. Let me try?"

"Thanks," Dinah said, grateful. "Okay... are you in college, or headed that way? Priestly's never said."

"I've got a couple of semesters," Tish said. "But I'm not going right now. "Still figuring things out, you know? What about you? I know you're in school, but what are you majoring in?"

"Yeah, I get that. Took Priestly a while to figure out his thing." Dinah bit her lip, looking at the boots in the mirror. "Criminal Justice. I'm going to be a P.I. when I get finished. So far I'm liking it all, although this semester it got harder. More specific classes, plus the harder general studies stuff. I end up twitching a lot." She gave Tish a rueful smile. "Too hyper."

The boots did kind of look good. But showing off to Priestly could wait until after she'd talked to Tish some more. "Okay, what to wear with them. Gah."

Tish looked Dinah over consideringly. "Let's see what you brought with you. How did a guy like Priestly end up friends with two cops?"

Dinah pulled out her suitcase, and flipped it open, then snickered as she pulled out some brightly colored tanks, a few skirts, and some jeans.

"Heh. Uh, Priestly and I hit it off on the bus in to school, our first day.... I think we got to be friends with Momoko through a--" What to call it? "Community service group. Kind of neighborhood watch stuff for the campus. Priestly wanted to help, so he always brought the food, and learned the first aid stuff." She couldn't help smiling with pride. "He always wanted to help. Even if there were people who knew way more about punching, he was always there."

"Yeah, that sounds like Priestly, alright," Tish said, exasperated affection in her voice. "Noble and kind of an idiot."

"Not an idiot," Dinah protested, laying out a denim skirt and looking considering. "Goofy sometimes, but in a good way." Noble, hmm? Woo! "We were on most of the plays there together, too. He acts more goofy than he is."

"I wondered how much of that was for show. The one-liners, the t-shirts, the mohawk. . . ."
