I know you want to be a gent and do the dishes, but there’s no point in having a strop about it.
Orchid: Don’t be silly Iri, it’s just the nerves making your thoughts funny.
Iri: You can say that again!
Orchid: We’re all as nervous as you are, some of a little be more being shy and all, but try not to. We’re all here because we think you’re brilliant, so don’t get too wound up okay?
Iri: I’ll.. I’ll give it a shot.
Iri: Like cookies huh?
Orchid: Oh yes, they’re my favorite!
Iri:That’s good, just don’t eat too many. Not that you would! I meant, uh, I didn’t.. I’m sorry..
Iri got really nervous about who he should sit with, so he sat by himself in the corner.
Mauve, Heartleaf, Evelyn and Darling are just a few of the girls who enjoyed a more unconventional evening meal.
Last, but by no means least, is Wilby.
Iri: Glad I could finally chat to you Wild Berry, you seem quite the chatter box!
Wilby: I guess I am hehe, oh and please call me Wilby.
Iri: Wilby it is then. So Wi-
Wilby: Will you excuse me for a sec?
Iri: Oh yeah, sure.
Wilby didn’t respond to Iri and walked away
Iri: Am I doing something wrong?
Iri: Oh.. That’s probably it..
Mauve is up next.
Mauve: Greetings Iri! I’m Mauve Dawson and it’s a pleasure to meet you!
Iri: Hello Mauve, it’s nice to meet you too! I must say, I feel slightly underdressed compared to you..
Mauve: Terribly sorry about that, just thought I’d get dress up for dinner. Speaking of which, I better grab a plate, talk to you later!
Iri: Oh okay, well it was nice talking..
Mauve didn’t respond to Iri and just walked away.
Heartleaf can’t see why Mauve would do such a thing, even though she did exactly the same..
Heartleaf is up next, if she’d stop gossiping with Wilby.
Iri: Hello Heartleaf! How are you?
Heartleaf: I’m great thanks! You can call me Heart or Leaf if you’d like.
Iri: Oh okay, Leaf it is.
Heartleaf: Great. Well, I’ll see you around.
Iri managed to snag Heartleaf from Wilby long enough to get to know her, but she didn’t respond and walked off.
I realise now that this is because it was at this point everyone started to get hungry. I should of thought about that, so I’ll make sure that the orders are randomized from now on.
Iri: You must be Sinatra! You probably get this a lot, but are you name after ol’ blue eyes himself?
Sinatra: I am indeed! My parents were big fans of his.
Iri: I can see why, he was brilliant.
Sinatra: He was, I grew up on his music.
Iri: Good music to grow up on..
Sinatra responded to Iri by chatting to him, but I imagined it to be a slightly clumsy chat between the two of them.
Next up Sinatra and Iri finds her in the garden.
Orchid is having a whale of a time with one of the toys she won on the claw machine.
Sweetie: So.. The weather’s nice today.
Iri: Oh, yeah. It’s uh.. It’s great.
Sweetie responded to Iri by talking about the weather.
Iri: How long have you been playing piano? You play very beautifully.
Sweetie: Oh gosh really? Well, thank you! And ever since I can remember really, always wanted to be a musician.
Iri: Oh cool! My sister started teaching me when I was a kid.
Sweetie: You play too?!
Iri: Oh yeah, not amazingly but I play. We could jam sometime!
