I chuckled at these suggestions.
[X] Give her a "push" in the right direction.
"Geez, you." You shove the fairy slightly, yet it manages to move her quite a ways.
"Hey!!" She puffed up her cheeks and started her ranting at you when suddenly, a tall nicely dressed woman walked towards her and picked her up by the neck of her dress.
The woman expressed a sense of frustration with her eyebrows. "You do know you're supposed to be helping out the maids, you know?"
"What are you saying, you gate guard?! You're not making much sense since you're usually the one that's so la-"
Promptly, that *gate guard* decided to kick the fairy out of the tent. "Get moving!"
Due to the fact that the disturbance of the fairy's babbling is gone, you notice a lot more about the lady in front of you:
As you discovered before, she is incredibly tall compared to yourself. Her orange locks of hair waver about with a braid tied on each side of her face. A slate-colored beret with a star sits on her head while her suit of the same color looks incredibly loose. You assume that she must move a lot with all the wrinkles she's left on her outfit.
"So where were we?" She murmured to herself. "Oh, right! Who are you two?"
"Uhh, umm, yes." Parsee faltered at her introduction. "I'm Parsee. I'm his partner."
"And you are?" The woman looked questionably at you.
You hurriedly attempt to divert the topic. "We were looking for some clothes, you know!"
She shrugs it off. "I guess you don't want to talk about that, do you? Anyways..." After a brief turn of her head, she remembers something else. "I forgot! I should tell you who I am, of course. I'm Hong Meiling, the gate guard of the Scarlet Devil Mansion."
"Why aren't you up there then?" You asked.
"Master's got her sights set straight and she doesn't wanna fail, that's it!"
Parsee squinted her eyes. "A bit selfish, isn't she?"
"Yep!" Meiling nodded her head. "But orders are orders. I better get those clothes for you two then." She walked over to the counter and chatted with the clerk.
"Hey Parsee, do you think you can ask her about that interesting fairy?"
"Sure." Parsee strolled over and tapped on Meiling's shoulder. "Hey, when you're done, can you tell me and my friend about that maid you kicked a while ago?"
At that moment, Meiling turns around and almost slams her arms carrying the clothes into Parsee's head. Fortunately, Parsee ducked and managed to get away without a headache.
"Alright!" Meiling announced to us. "Here's your clothes." You went ahead and grabbed the clothes. You remember to give Parsee her clothes later when she's ready to change.
Parsee stood up. "Hey, Meiling, r-remember?" Her face was still showing fright from the accident that nearly happened.
"I do, fortunately!" Meiling sat down on a wooden box. Her hat floated, then plopped right back on. "That maid's actually Cirno. She's an ice fairy from the lake around the mansion I guard. A bit stupid, so I have to straighten her out, you know? I'm not a gate guard for nothing!" With that, she flexed her arm.
Wait, what? A lake around the mansion? "Why do you need to guard the gate then if there's a giant lake stopping people?" You questioned.
"Because Master said so. Even if people can fly, I can kick them out before they get in!"
Parsee rolled her eyes. "How about Marisa?"
Meiling twitched. "W-Well, she's no match for me!"
"We'd like to know where we can rest for a bit, if you know. Also, we need to change our clothes." This armor has been a bit clunky as of lately, really...
"Oh, that's easy." Meiling swiftly pointed in a direction. "Go that way! I won't lead you wrong."
"Thanks, Meiling." Parsee looked at where she pointed. "By the way..."
We looked at Meiling again and immediately, we see her snoring on the box, drooling happily with her arm supporting her head.
"...okay! We should get moving then."
