Amelia agreed to co-mentor/parent Mai through this ordeal with Luna, but right before they left Ace of Spades, the plans seemed to change at the last second. Amelia received a call from an old friend explaining that they were needed out of town for a 'family emergency'. Luna knew very little of Amelia's family, she knew that the Android a handful of godchildren that for one reason or another she hardly ever spoke about. Luna knew Amelia suffered in ways that she can't comprehend, so she decided to not force the matter and respect her partner's right to privacy.
Walking through the streets of Rose Garden, Luna tried to remain optimistic that her young protege would impress her with good behavior. "Alright Mai, before we get there I think I should tell you what this place does. It caters to something called weddings, a wonderful event that is a grand milestone in many people's lives."
Luna said as she was carefully picking her words as she was trying to explain things to Mai. "Every culture has their own ways of carrying it out, but the most common traits are that it's a large display in front of family and a select number of friends when a grown adult, really, really loves another and want to commit. This usually happens before a mommy and daddy have a child but is far from that process. There is a ceremony part, then something called a reception. Where a grand feast is hosted before a few other traditions such as dancing and anything in the family." Luna explained to the young girl, she was barely able to restrain her giddiness. "For most girls, a wedding is counted among the most special and anticipated days in their life. Everyone gets dressed up, but none more the bride, the woman. It is where many get a nice dress or kimono they will wear for the ceremony, which is often worn only for the one day but then kept treasured. Sometimes it gets reused, I don't think you seen my formal kimono,-" Which in reality was more or less due to the fact that Luna was careful to avoid exposing Mai to the environments befitting the attire. "-is actually the one my mother got married in given as a gift from my father's mother. Honestly I might carry on the tradition and wear it if I ever get married."
Luna took a deep breath as she composed herself again, remembering she had to avoid losing control so easily. "The place we're going services weddings, a couple pays them and they handle the details and catering. I personally dislike them as they are to uniform, conformist, and make weddings too much a display of wealth. However a glass of wine and some cake is hard to turn down at the moment." She chuckled slightly before getting to the main point. "Ultimately it would be nice to acquaint you with the behaviour of this sort of occasion before you attend one for real."
