-Capital Crocus, The Lexington Estate, 9:30 A.M.-
Dressed in her usual outfit of purple t-shirt, black skirt with pockets, and white thigh-high stockings with black tennis shoes, Diana stood outside a lavish three-story mansion in the "nice" part of Capital Crocus named the Lexington Estate after the wealthy family who owned it. The mansion was painted solid white and had solid wooden double doors with gold door handles and gleaming windows that had been cleaned to a shine. She had knocked on the door and was waiting to be let in... she was supposed to meet her old acquaintance Angela Helton along with the new client who had hired her for this job. The front door opened and out stepped Angela, who was dressed in her white Crocus Magicka University t-shirt with the letters "CMU" printed in pink with black borders plus a short black skirt and brown sandals.
"Oh hi Diana! It's been SUCH a long time since we last saw each other!
" Angela warmly greeted Diana and embraced the blonde. Diana's skin crawled every second the brunette held her until she was finally let go.
" Diana calmly greeted her old acquaintance as her skin finally stopped crawling. Angela gave a beaming smile and looked at the blonde. Diana did not change her facial expression at all.
"My friend Vanessa should be with us shortly. She has a lot going on in between college classes, a social life, and everything else she does.
" Angela informed Diana that the former's friend was currently busy but should be able to talk business soon. The blonde did not mind waiting. She was a patient sort and she did not have anything else to do today.
Angela motioned for Diana to enter the foyer of the Lexington Estate and she obeyed, going inside the mansion. Her acquaintance shut the door behind her.
-Inside the Lexington Estate, the foyer, 9:33 A.M.-
Diana now stood inside the foyer, which had gray marble tile flooring and a carpet for visitors to wipe their feet on, which she did as soon as she saw it. Once she had done that she looked past the entrance and deeper into the mansion, which was decorated with the same gray marble tile flooring as the foyer and featured immaculate white wallpaper on the walls and assorted oil paintings of who Diana guessed were Lexington family members. All of them were in gold frames and were obviously cared for because she did not see a single dust particle on the frames or the paintings themselves. Diana heard the sound of shoes clicking against tile and spotted a young woman who was roughly her height with light brown hair and brown eyes walking towards her and Angela. The newcomer was dressed in a white tank top and brown skirt with white sandals and was walking at a brisk pace."Hi Angie!
" The young woman greeted the darker-haired brunette. Angela spun around and saw her friend, then extended her arms outwards and rushed to embrace her. Diana watched as the two brunettes hugged each other for a count of three before separating and facing each other with wide smiles. The blonde continued to keep her distance and wait as the two began to talk.
"Hey Angie, how are classes at CMU going for you?
" The light-haired brunette inquired. Angela put her hands on her hips.
"They're going, Vanessa. They're going. That's about all I can say.
" Angela admitted. Vanessa laughed.
"Oh Angie... always struggling in class just like you did in high school. I thought getting a low C in Biology 1 would be a wake-up call!
" Vanessa chided her friend. Angela folded her arms across her chest.
"Oh, look who's talking! You're the one who barely passed Economics 1 because you were too busy checking out that handsome Alex Mitchell guy!
" Angela retorted. Instead of getting angry the other brunette only laughed.
"Guilty as charged, Angie. Making a low C in Economics was totally worth it because I got to sit right behind him. Besides, it's not like I really need to go to college and get a degree to be successful... I'm just going for the fun of it!
" Vanessa defended herself in a playful tone of voice. Angela sighed in defeat.
"That's a fair point.
" Angela conceded. After that exchange the two brunettes turned their attention to Diana, who had remained silent while they had talked. Vanessa made eye contact with Diana and was obviously sizing the blonde up for something other than whether she was able to complete the job that might be given to her.
"She's Diana Winchester, the mage I told you about. She's the one who's gonna help you with your problem.
" Angela informed her friend. Vanessa smiled brightly and began to slowly approach Diana while keeping eye contact with the blonde.
