Y’lanna smiled at the playwright. She could tell that he was infatuated with her. It was well known that Zonelogers had that effect on other species in her world, but the effect was diminished in the presence of other Zonelogers. So the advances were welcome, but it was far too early for her to engage in any sort of relationship. She was still getting to know this place. She had jumped in too early into a business project, and she had paid the price. She was not going to make the same mistake twice. Also she wanted to wait for Ruili, give him a chance to come back.
However, she had an idea. She would ask for a tour of the set by the playwright of the play that she saw. Get a chance to see how it all works, allow her to not reject Osrel’s advances should she wish to decide in the future that she would like him, but also to delay enough for Ruili to have the chance to come back.
“You know, we don’t have plays where I came from. I would love a tour of the theatre, the set and what goes on behind the scenes, especially by a playwright such as you.”
She held off from taking his elbow as offered until he responded not wanting to see how he’d respond before taking a move to confirm “the date” so to speak.
