-Capital Crocus Mall, 11:37 A.M.-
Wearing a casual outfit of white t-shirt and "chocolate chip" pattern desert camouflage shorts along with tan hiking boots, Leona entered Capital Crocus Mall without any weapons in her possession nor any armor on her body. She was here for a casual shopping trip, so she would have no need for weapons or armor. The only threats she would face were long lines, dense crowds of shoppers, and high prices.
Leona stood on the threshold of the area that led to the food court and noticed that it was packed like it always was. She saw a long line of people snaking to the entrance and knew that she was not going to get any food from the food court, not unless she wanted to join the line and spend who knew how long waiting for a chance to order something. When she thought the matter through Leona swiftly decided that it would be best just to wait and leave the mall if she wanted something to eat. In the meantime she had some shopping that she wanted to do.
The blonde had come here in order to buy some new clothes to expand her modest wardrobe. It was a long overdue trip and today was as good a time as any to go look for some new clothes. She really needed some outfits to wear other than the same green, gold and white and blue, white, and gold outfits she had been wearing for the past three or four years. While those outfits had served her well and had become a signature look for her, Leona wanted more casual clothing to wear for occasions such as spending a day at the guild hall, going to festivals, or spending time with Masha.
Suddenly becoming aware that she was holding up people behind her, Leona quickly walked into the food court and took a left to head towards the staircase that would take her to the second floor of the mall.
-The second floor, three minutes later-
Leona emerged from the stairwell roughly three minutes later and stepped to the left to let the people behind her pass by. She looked over the heads of shoppers milling about on the second floor and saw the store called The Modern Woman, a store Leona remembered from past trips to the mall. It had a respectable selection of clothing that leaned towards a casual look, which was exactly what Leona was looking for right now.
She waited until a gap in the crowd formed, then moved through it and began walking briskly towards her destination. Within a minute she was inside the store. Now it was time to browse the store's wares and hope that they had some items that fit her.
