The Kaijin walked down the bustling city streets, having completed the work she'd set out to for the day. A few thousand Jewels richer, she considered it a reasonable haul for a C-Rank Mage, and more importantly... enough to hopefully impress her Guild Masters back home. The sun was starting to set low in the sky, and the city was coming alive with evening entertainment. Cassiopeia wanted no part of it, pushing past crowds as they gathered in the streets talking and celebrating. Magnolia Town was a lively place, with constant entertainers and performers, and the wealthy populace needed to support them. Cassiopeia was at her core, not a social being, often an outcast among humans and a willing exile from her own kind she found little comradery in her day to day life.
No, what the woman craved now was a hot bath, a good meal, and a warm bed. She brushed her way past an eager group of revelers, making her way to the entrance to her hotel. Hotels were one of the few creature comforts the Kaijin enjoyed. They offered the three things she desired most after a long day, and they offered them in exceeding quality. Cassiopeia made her way up the stares to her room, unlocking the door and slipping inside. As always she was greeted to an unmade bed, and a half opened suitcase of her clothing and personal effects. "I need a damn bath..." Cassiopeia said, looking down at her grime covered hands and rolling her eyes. She supposed that was what she deserved for offering to help that farmer plow his fields.
The Kaijin quickly stripped out of her quality regalia, taking off her crimson and onyx dress, sleeves, and matching boots and setting them aside neatly. She then slipped into something more comfortable, and ideal for bathing. A two piece string bikini, solid black in color, that barely covered her sizable bust and left almost nothing the imagination. One piece bathing suits were a pain, given the rows of dorsal spines that jutted from her back and ignoring the fact she'd have needed to cut a hole for her tail. Inspecting herself in her bedroom mirror she was quite pleased with the results, the Kaijin woman considered herself as stunning as ever. Her vanity was exceeded only by her pride, both of which she valued highly.
Cassiopeia proceeded to lock up her bedroom and make her way downstairs, commanding the attention of most passerby as she went about her business. She was used to stares from humans, both lustful wide eyed looks from men and expressions of confusion, shock, or even fear from men and women alike. The Kaijin towered over most humans, and her long reptilian tail tended to command even more attention that her scantily clad bust currently did. A brief while later she found herself at the entrance to the hotel spa. Built on a natural hot springs, the hotel's spa boasted both a sauna, mud baths, and a more traditional hot springs. It was a fantastic way to relax, one Cassiopeia planned to enjoy.
Making her way through the spa, Cassiopeia could practically feel herself being rejuvenated. Naturally cold blooded, just the proximity heat of the spa felt good on her tired body. The warm waters themselves would feel heavenly. The woman made her way to the edge a pool, grinning ear to ear at the steam rising lazily off the waters. She dipped a toe in, goosebumps running up and down her spine at the heat. Cassiopeia then eased herself into the water, letting out a soft coo of pleasure as she did. The pool was not particularly deep, and only came to midway up her chest. She rolled forward onto her stomach, lavishing the feel of the warm water along the length of her tail.
Cassiopeia's tail began to sway back and forth, paddling her lazily across the pool until she reached the far side. She folded her arms crossed out over the edge of the pool, resting her chin between them and closing her eyes as she let out a content sigh. "Mmm... this is the life..." The woman said with a soft coo, happily letting the warm waters wash over her weary body and melt away the stress of a hard day. Her long tail stretched out behind her, gently swaying back and forth in lazy motions as the woman enjoyed a well earned moment of respite.
