Hazel eyes looked down at the piece of paper, well the back of another card that Sammy had quickly scribbled her number on for her. And the quickest of glances did flitter to the other ginger and at the bright smile that she saw, it felt as if her heart had decided to leap into her throat. Or rather made her throat feel dry as the desert winds and so it took a moment before she was even able to speak. [#fe381b "Two hours should be plenty of time...I'll see you then."] Her own returning smile was more shy but it was the same sweet one she used to give Samantha when they had been little girls.
For a moment, Lucy stared at the place where the silver wolf had been before it ran off. And a sigh slipped from her. [#fe381b [i 'What am I even doing? She probably doesn't even remember...it's been what? eleven years? And she's probably with someone now anyway...so why did my hybrid ass decide to even agree to this?']] Her thoughts were TRYING to make her see logic and to make her rethink her choice. But it wasn't working very well and so hands stuffed themselves into the back pockets of black skinny jeans as she made herself walk the remaining distance back to her apartment in her human form as people were not typically accustomed to seeing giant wolves roaming about.
When she got home, the nineteen year old let herself in and went to the table, taking out a piece of notebook paper and an envelope. She scribbled a note for the property manager and stuck the rent money into the envelope. Once she had done that, the young woman went to the bathroom and stripped from her bloodied clothing as she turned the shower on as hot as it would go and stepped into it, letting the water run down her slender body and wash the blood away. By now, the gash to her arm was mostly healed...but it would be leaving yet another crescent moon shaped scar. She had so many it wasn't even funny
Twenty minutes later, Lucinda was out of the shower and drying off with a fluffy blue towel and made her way back to her room and to her closet where she chose a pair of back skinny jeans and a red corset with a short black jacket. Quickly she got dressed and tied her hair back into a messy ponytail before she grabbed her suitcase and filled it with her clothing, the few books she had, a couple necklaces that had been her mother's, and her favourite stuffed cat and bunny she had had since she was little. Once packed, Lucy made her way around the room once, twice, three tines just to make sure she wasn't forgetting anything.
Finally, after an hour between getting her shower and making sure EVERYTHING was in order, the vampire-wolf hybrid was ready to kiss the life she had known for the last few months goodbye. And in doing so, that meant making sure that Elizabeth, Connor, and Annabelle forgot she had even been there. When she had done that, the hybrid took her suitcace with her and made her way to the Boardwalk and towards the old Ferris Wheel.
[#fe381b [i 'Hi Samantha...it's Lucinda...and just letting you know almost there..']] And she hit the send button before she could second guess herself.
Maybe ten minuted after she had sent her message, she slipped out of a group of passerbys and gave Sammy a small smile. [#fe381b "Umm...hi...are...are you ready to head out? Or did you want to grab a bite to eat first...? My treat..."] God she sounded awkward as all hell, but she wanted the other young woman to at least know she didn't hate her or anything. She was just nervous. Now though since she had spoken, the ball was in Sammy's court and she had to wait to see what the other would say she wanted to do. All the while, Lucy could not stop with her nervous bouncing.
