    -Capital Crocus, Capital Coffee, 11:00 A.M.-

    Wearing her purple short-sleeved t-shirt, black skirt with pockets containing a medium-sized bag of Jewels in the left pocket and her iLac in the right pocket, white thigh-high stockings, and black tennis shoes, Diana sat in her usual seat in Capital Coffee facing the mall. She was sitting in the chair and sipping from her white styrofoam cup of double espresso while watching people walk by her. Overhead played a cheerful pop tune with a female singer singing about a sunny day at the beach with her friends, but Diana did not pay it very much attention. She had greater concerns than what kind of music was playing in a coffee shop.

    She was thinking about the direction she wanted her life to go from here.

    A couple of months ago Diana had become a Guildless mage after her former guild had suddenly disbanded. She was free from the burden of her double life and free to live without having to hide from the world, but something very important was missing. It did not take very long for her to put her finger on what she was missing.

    She was missing a sense of purpose.

    Diana did not know what to do with herself now that she was free. She was a legitimate Guildless mage, which meant that she was free to choose her own destiny. No longer did she have to take orders from someone else.

    Therein lay the problem.

    She had been taking orders from someone else for so long that now that she finally had her freedom she did not even know what to do with it.

    While pondering the best solution to her problem Diana took another sip of coffee while looking out of the window in front of her. She saw people streaming by her going about their daily lives. She saw people streaming into and out of the mall that was only a short distance away. They moved like they had a sense of purpose, something that Diana was currently lacking.

    Diana sipped from her cup of coffee again as she tried to figure out how she was going to find her sense of purpose. She sipped more coffee and pondered that question until she ran out of coffee. Having drank all of her double espresso and not wanting another right away, Diana decided that she would pay a visit to the mall and do some window shopping to take her mind off of her current problems.

    Diana stood up from her chair, walked over to the trash can near the door, and tossed her empty coffee cup into the proper trash receptacle before leaving the coffee shop to go to the mall.

    -Capital Crocus Mall, the first floor, 11:25 A.M.-

    After leaving Capital Coffee and walking to the mall Diana now stood on the first floor of Capital Crocus Mall. The food court was already beginning to fill up with hungry shoppers forming lines to their restaurants of choice. Diana was not hungry, so she would not be waiting in line for anything to eat. Instead she walked towards the stairwell to go up to the second floor to begin her window shopping.

    -On the second floor-

    Diana emerged from the stairwell, stepped to the left side to avoid holding up foot traffic, and looked around the second floor for a shop that interested her enough to go in and look at what it had to offer. Since there was nothing interesting in the immediate area, Diana decided to do a lap around the second floor to see what she could find. She had just walked to the first bench on the right side of the second floor when she sat down on it and thought about something.

    She had been here several times in the past.

    She should have known where everything was by now.

    Why was she wandering around like she had never been here before?

    The huntress had never felt this lost before. She was not only lost in the physical sense, but also the sense of not having a direction to take her life in. She highly doubted that she was going to find it in a shopping mall.

    -Capital Crocus Mall, the second floor, twenty minutes later-

    Diana had spent twenty minutes sitting on the bench trying to figure out what she was going to do about finding a new purpose for her life. That had been twenty minutes wasted because she had not come up with any compelling new purpose for herself. Even being a legitimate Guildless mage who no longer had to live a double life did little to console her.

    Seeing no point in sitting around on the bench any longer, the blonde stood up and was going to make a lap around the second floor to at least do something other than sit around and take up space. At least she could distract herself from her problems for a short while.

    -On the second floor, twenty minutes later-

    Diana had made a lap of the second floor and had still not found any interesting stores to go in. She did not need clothing from The Modern Woman or The Athlete's Edge. She did not need new lingerie from Intimate Secrets. She could not think of anywhere else to go in here except maybe for The Music Vault. Maybe that store would be interesting enough to distract her for a few minutes.

    Feeling like she was just wasting her time as she followed a crowd of shoppers to the stairwell she used to get to the second floor, Diana eventually reached the stairwell and began climbing the stairs to the third floor.

    -The Music Vault, the third floor, ten minutes later-

    Ten minutes later Diana was standing inside The Music Vault and browsing through the music lacrimas as music began began to play overhead. According to the announcer, it was the newest single from a band named Bringer Of Strife. The single was called "The Sinews Of War."

    The piece started out with the quiet scribbling of an ink pen on paper. Then a motor vehicle started up. Next came the sound of a jet aircraft taking off. Then came the sound of a magazine being loaded into a firearm. Finally the music started off with a fast guitar solo mingling with the sound of artillery pieces firing.

    After a minute the guitar solo stopped and the scribbling sound of an ink pen on paper played again. The sounds of a motor vehicle starting up, a jet aircraft taking off, and a firearm being loaded repeated before the sound of a belt-fed machine gun being loaded played. The charging handle of the machine gun was pulled and released, then a furious drum solo started just as the weapon began to fire.

    The drum solo last for as long as it took for the ammunition belt to be expended. Once the weapon stopped firing the drum solo ended and an uneasy silence prevailed... until she heard the scribbling again. Then the previous sounds played one behind the other and mingled for several seconds before stopping and being replaced by another uneasy silence, then the scribbling could be heard one last time.

    Once the musical piece had ended the announcer listed the band and the name of the album the single was from. The album was titled "The Clausewitz Engine" and it was now available in music stores everywhere, including the one Diana was standing in. Shortly after that announcement more music came on, but unlike the last piece this one was an upbeat pop number. Diana took a moment to let the abrupt shift in mood flow through her as the music transitioned from serious to cheerful in the space of thirty seconds.

    Diana listened to the new pop song play as a female vocalist sang about meeting her friends at the club for a lively night of fun. She listened to it for about twenty seconds before she mentally tuned it out and turned to walk towards the racks of t-shirts on the left side of the store. She reached the racks of t-shirts and began to sift through them. She was not really looking to buy anything... she was just doing this to distract herself from her problems.

    Diana sifted through the t-shirts and found that a lot of bands were represented. She found t-shirts for bands such as Bringer Of Strife, Mechanized Mayhem, Power Overwhelming, and others. She sifted past the metal band section and skipped over the pop section until she eventually reached the electronic music section, which had a few DJ Dynamo t-shirts in varying colors. The huntress began to look through them on the off chance there was a purple DJ Dynamo shirt available.

    After a brief search she found a purple t-shirt with "DJ Dynamo" on the front printed in white letters and gently removed it from the rack. She examined her find and smiled a little at her luck. It soon faded when she realized that the shirt was smaller than the others.

    It was too small for her to wear.

    Overcome by disappointment, Diana put the shirt back on the rack and did not even bother to search through the rest for a purple DJ Dynamo shirt her size. Diana wordlessly turned around and left The Music Vault. She was probably going to go home and try to look for work to get her purpose back... or she was just going to lie on her bed and stare at the ceiling.

    An Aimless Day Empty Re: An Aimless Day

    Post by Diana Winchester Yesterday at 1:18 am

    -Outside Diana's townhouse, Crown Lane, one hour later-

    Since her shopping trip had not panned out because the one purchase she wanted to make was not the right size for her, Diana had decided to quit wasting time at the mall and go back home. Diana was standing outside her door and reaching to knock on the door to try and get Ami to let her in when she heard someone call her name. The voice was coming from her right.

    Diana looked in that direction to see a dark-haired young woman approaching from the right. At first Diana thought that she was seeing Amber, but then she noticed that the dark-haired young woman had longer hair than Amber did. The huntress looked closer and noticed that the person approaching her was... Catherine Corvinus?

    "DIANA!" The young woman called out. Diana took her hand out of her pocket and turned to face the young woman. Catherine was wearing her blue DJ Dynamo t-shirt and black gym shorts with white tennis shoes.

    "Hey Diana! It's been awhile since we last met!" Catherine greeted Diana in a cheerful tone of voice. Diana blinked.

    "Yeah, I know it's weird seeing me out in broad daylight." Catherine made a self-deprecating joke about her tendency to stay indoors most of the time. Diana gave a small smile and felt her malaise lift just a little.

    "Hello, Catherine. It has been some time since we last met." Diana returned the greeting in a calm voice. Catherine smiled at her.

    "Amber told me that you live here now. Is that your house?" Catherine asked, pointing towards the door Diana was standing in front of. Diana nodded.

    "Mind if I come in for a few minutes?" Catherine asked Diana.

    "Certainly. As soon as I can get the door open, you are welcome to come inside." Diana consented to Catherine dropping in. Diana turned her attention back to the door and knocked on it. Moments passed and no response from Ami.

    Diana knocked on the door again. This time she could hear the sound of the lock being unlocked before the door opened.

    "Oh, hi Diana!" Ami greeted Diana warmly.

    "I apologize for that, Ami. It seems that I forgot to take my house keys with me when I left for Capital Coffee this morning." Diana apologized to Ami for forgetting her house keys and thus making her have to open the door.

    "It's no problem, Diana. I'm here to help you!" Ami assured her that she did not mind opening the door for the blonde. The android looked over Diana's shoulder and saw Catherine standing just behind and to the left of Diana.

    "This is my friend Catherine Corvinus." Diana introduced Ami to Catherine. The raven waved at Ami, who returned the wave.

    "Don't just stand there. Come on in!" Ami bade them. Diana entered first followed by Catherine. When both young women entered the house Ami shut and locked the door behind them.

    -Inside Diana's townhouse, the living room-

    Diana walked into the living room as Catherine followed close behind. Ami brought up the rear and stood in the living room while Diana walked into her mini-kitchen. The raven looked around at Diana's place.

    "Would you like something to drink, Catherine?" Diana offered a drink to the second guest to ever grace her home.

    "Do you have any Strawberry Slam?" Catherine asked Diana. The blonde walked to her refrigerator and opened the doors. She peered inside and saw that she did not have any Strawberry Slam sodas, only Cherry Charge. Diana turned around to face Catherine, who was now standing a short distance to her left.

    "I do not have any Strawberry Slam drinks, but I do have Cherry Charge. Would you like one?" Diana asked. Catherine nodded.

    "Yeah, Cherry Charge will do the trick." Catherine expressed her willingness to accept a can of Cherry Charge. Diana turned to face the open refrigerator door and reached inside, grabbing a can with her right hand. She shut the door with her left hand and walked over to Catherine, presenting her with the canned drink. The raven gratefully accepted it.

    "Thanks, Diana." Catherine thanked her hostess for the drink before opening the can and taking a swig of the cherry soda. She then faced Diana, who was still standing in the kitchen.

    "I bet you wanna know what I'm doing in your neighborhood, huh?" Catherine asked Diana. Diana nodded. The blonde was genuinely curious as to why Catherine was in Crown Lane.
