    "Maybe we can ask?" Nika suggests.

    Leah hesitates at the thought, giving an embarrassed grin "Might, uh, might be best not to if, uh, if we get the same person who bought us to, uh, to this table..?"

    "Well...I can't answer you and I don't think Alyssa can," Nika says.

    Alyssa shrugs. She smiles at Leah, noticing her nerves. "I, um, I guess probably? Is this different from the places like it back home?"

    Leah gives an embarrassed laugh, "I-I just can't, uh, can't think of a way to ask that's not, uh, not really rude!" She folds her arms on the table in front of her, giving a shrug as she does, "I, uh, I never really went into a maid café back in Kanto. I just knew of them."

    It's at this point that the maid returns.

    "Hey, Miss!" Nika says. "How come you're acting different from all the other maids?"

    "Different maids appeal to different customers." The maid explains, with perfect pronunciation. "If you would prefer another, you need only ask, although you should be aware there is a flat fee to be tended to by your preferred server."

    Alyssa looks at Leah and Nika across the table to gauge her thoughts. "If you t-two are okay with it, I'm okay with what we have." She smiles at the maid who is serving them, giving a small nod of her head.

    "You needn't spare my feelings." The maid comments, impassive.

    "Can i buy your outfit?" Nika asks.

    "You can not."

    "Oh..." Nika frowns. "Please? Leah let me buy some of her clothes."

    The flicker of the maid's eyes is just barely perceptible. "That's not a service we offer."

    Leah's eyes widen in alarm as Nika asks the maid about her behaviour, attention flicking over to the maid with a worried expression. An expression that turns to relief as the maid takes the question in her stride. She gives a small smile to the maid and shakes her head, "I've, uh, I've not got a, uh, a problem being served by, uh, by you."

    The maid nods. "What would you like to drink?"

    At the other table, it seems like Bibi is in for the long haul. It will be some time before she's without company.

    Leah throws a brief glance over to Bibi and, seeing her still looking fully engaged with whoever she was seated with, turns her attention back to the menu. "Umm... Could, uh, could I have a tea..? Umm, black, please..?"

    TIME PASSES.

    All three girls get to enjoy a warm or cold beverage of their choice, along with some sweet or savory snack, and it's all of excellent quality served by a maid to whom elegance is a second nature. Nika spends much of the time watching the maids in their outfits, while Maggie enjoys the remnants of whatever food the girls don't want to finish, and Scroungy crawls into Nika's pack to rest.

    Fortunately, by the time they're done, Bibi is standing up to leave the maid cafe.

    Noticing Bibi getting up, Alyssa looks to Leah and points toward her, then gets up without a word and heads over to Bibi.

    As politely as she can, she stammers "U-um, Bibi?" hoping the woman will turn around. When she does she bows her head slightly and says, "L-Leah and I, um, wanted to find you t-to tell you...um, I w-wanted to, um, get s-some help. For my f-fears. So I'm s-seeing some of the h-healers here to b-better control it. W-which may take s-some time off o-our journey." She bows again, though partially to hide her face which has turned quite red.

    "Okay," Bibi says, turning as she's addressed. "Will the healers investigate your stutter?"

    Bibi nods, apparently content with the contents of that conversation.

    Nika and Maggie have both followed Alyssa over. Maggie gives a little wave to the woman, who nods at her, while Nika stares.

    Leah follows Alyssa over to Bibi, letting her take the lead on talking once she starts. As Alyssa starts to struggle, she gently lays a hand on her arm to offer silent support. When Alyssa and Bibi's exchange appears to be over, Leah adds, "Umm, the, uh, the treatment Alyssa's going to get isn't something that'll, uh, that'll be done in a few days. If, uh, if you didn't want to hang around here until she finishes it, we would understand." She gives an embarrassed rub behind her neck, "But, uh, but if you've not got anywhere else to be, it'd be nice to still, uh, still have you as our guide when we're, uh, we're ready to leave..?"

    Alyssa smiles at Bibi. She speaks slowly, which helps her avoid stuttering. "Thanks, Bibi. I, um, I really appreciate it." Turning to Leah, she smiles, small but considerate.

    Leah lets out a relieved sigh, giving Bibi a grateful nod and smile, "Thanks, Bibi... I don't know if, uh, if we'd even be able to find someone as helpful as you..." She finds herself not quite sure what to say next, glancing between the other three for a moment before settling on Alyssa and Nika, "I guess, uh, I guess if you guys wanted to, uh, to look around the market part of, uh, of the quarter we could do that now..?"

    Alyssa points over her shoulder with her thumb. "I gotta find a bag for this egg, or a bag for Leah." She smiles at Leah as she mentions her. "But, um, I wouldn't mind looking for some other stuff."

    Leah gives an uncertain shrug, "It'd be, uh, it'd be interesting to see what kind of tech is, uh, is on sale but, umm, but other than that I think just bags." She gives a faintly embarrassed grin, "And, uh, and maybe some new t-shirts in case the clothes you swapped with me don't fit quite right. But, uh, but we'll be here a while. I can just window shop this time round."

    Alyssa smiles at Leah. "Oh! You want help finding some clothes?" She looks over at Bibi. "Th-thanks. Um, I mean, thanks again." Bowing her head, she takes Leah's hand and heads for the door, though she doesn't do so with much haste to give everyone time to walk with them.

    Leah reddens a bit at Alyssa's question, giving a smile and nod, "Yeah, umm, if you don't mind. I, uh, I liked the stuff you picked out last time we went looking for, uh, for clothes." She then offers Bibi a quick bob of her head as well before heading out the door after Alyssa. Once outside, she glances around to re-orient herself before heading toward the market.

    The girls and Maggie go visit the market and find that it rather resembles the kind of thing Leah's used to, with clearly-marked buildings separated with signs advertising what they're selling, whether it's clothes or food or even gaming things. There are smaller stalls set out, rather like an open market, where visiting foreigners are obviously selling their wares, and it sits just outside a larger prefab building that advertises more of them inside - and higher quality, as well. It's reasonably active, with most of the customers obviously being foreigners, although there are a handful of locals working, carrying boxes or else cleaning up stands or helping people with their purchases.

    Once they arrive, Alyssa takes some time to wander around the market, not stopping at any stalls but standing far away and looking at them from a distance. She keeps an eye out for anything that might be interesting to her or Leah, as well as for a bag to carry her new egg.

    Leah finds herself grinning as she looks around the stalls, gaze flitting between various bits of technology, familiar clothing, and the odd food vendor. Finding herself drawn to one of the more technology oriented stalls, her smile unexpectedly falters a little as she looks over the various pokéballs and pokégear accessories on display, her mind casting back to the times she'd go through Saffron's malls with her friends. Giving Alyssa's hand a gentle squeeze in response to the faint sinking in her chest, she glances up at the big building behind the stall. Turning her attention to Alyssa, she points to the busy prefab building, "I think there's more stuff inside, mind if, uh, if we go take a look..?"
