Going nowhere in particular, Gadget was admiring the flowers planted strategically around the hotel grounds. Since the parks could be kind of hectic, she liked to take time once in a while to relax. Today, she had decided on a nature walk.
Sniffing at some pretty pink blossoms, the little mouse heard some music starting up nearby. At least, it was somebody tuning up. Maybe that meant a concert was about to begin.
"A concert would be nice," she said to herself. Gadget followed the sound to see if she could get a good seat.
High up in the branches of the tree, the self-proclaimed genius and fastest of the fast flying fairies Vidia was taking a brief nap in the sun. Although she usually disliked the Resort, she had to admit that peaceful moments such as this one made it almost bearable. Of course that was until a wretched screeching sound began at the base of the tree, shattering Vidia’s peace and wrenching her back to the waking world.
“What the…” exclaimed, rolling over onto her stomach and peering down over the edge of the branch before sighing. It was those two mice she’d met some time ago, both of which had managed to get one of her many nerves. Well she certainly wasn’t going to let them get away with it this time.
“Okay sweetie, listen up,” she began, stepping off the branch and coasting down to the ground to hover above the duo, “I’m sure one of your level won’t understand one of my talents, but I’d rather appreciate it if you’d…” her expression changed from one of mock-politeness to one of annoyance, “stop that racket!”
((I've been great thanks ^^ Sorry I've been so inactive lately. I know Bianca's missed Basil. How have you been?))
Vidia smirked as Gadget appeared suitably bristled by her appearance, amused that although she was sure Basil felt the same way he was at least concealing it.
“Au contraire sunshine,” she began, waving away the female mouse’s comment dismissively, “I love music. I just haven’t heard any today.” She giggled, glancing derisively over at Basil as she leant back against the tree. The last time she’d encountered this rodent double act, there certainly were alone of mice at this park, she’d tried to send Gadget off on a dangerous wild goose chase after a villainous personality.
“Did you ever find that personality I suggested?” she asked, feigning enthusiasm as she turned to face Gadget once again.
Gadget hated talking to Vidia. The subtleties of snide remarks and sarcasm just weren't her thing. She never knew what to say, so she just stood there awkwardly, wishing a certain fast-flying person would fast-fly to Timbuktu.
((Hmm, none that are shown. However it wouldn't be far fetched to imagine she did, and she does have a fine singing voice.))
Vidia’s forehead creased for a moment as she frowned, for it was clear that Gadget hadn’t even attempted to follow her instructions. How terribly disappointing, she’d rather liked the idea at the time.
“I thought you knew better then to disobey one of my talents,” she added haughtily, not looking at the female mouse as she spoke, “not like sunshine over there. He stopped playing as soon as I asked like a good boy.” She giggled, wings twitching slightly as she leant back against a tree.
Basil didn't particularly want to play for her, or for anyone else. He wasn't quite good enough to perform in public, at least in his own estimation.
But he was inclined to spite Vidia, so, moving a good distance out of the faerie's earshot and choosing another secluded location beneath the shrubbery, the detective set up his music stand once again and began to play.
