I was sitting in the mahogany lobby of the hotel with my legs crossed. The couches, tables and chairs were the red brown color of mahogany, although the leather and fabrics were slightly redder. The floor was a fast expanse of red brown with a varnish that made it look smooth.
I was reading one of those glossy magazine’s. They made me curious because I expected one day to see an advertisement selling guns or saying something like: stop buying these ridiculous expensive clothes that are probably made by exploited kids in poor countries and required the death of three different species of animals. But instead I looked at women who looked a bit like me: slender, young, fashionable. Almost like me, but for the piercings and the red,black blond hair that was slightly too masculine. The piercings had almost made some of the staff blink, but they were used to lot more strangeness so they recovered quickly from seeing me, in fact so quickly that I hardly noticed..
Yrseke sat down on my lap.
One moment she wasn’t there, the next moment she had replaced the glossy.. She wrapped her arms around my neck and said, “So how are you?.”
I looked at her disapprovingly. She quickly stood up and moved over to a couch where she sat back making her body stretched out over the length of the couch, but leaving her high booted legs off .
Yrseke was spectacle.
If you looked closely there was a strong similarity with her older sister Taubie. They were the same shape, length and build, but you would not belief it when you saw them. The younger one, lounging on the couch, was playful, with gestures that were inviting and slightly sensual. She always wore skimpy clothes. Low rider jeans that were tightly fitted to her body. Shirts that revealed more than they covered. One of her favorite looks was wearing a bikini top with a open cut vest without sleeves on some tight low rider jeans. Her hair were always done with tails. Like now she was wearing pig tails. In demeanor she played often the naive somewhat gigglish girl who was open. She didn’t hide feelings and liked to be around people or with people. Especially attractive sensual people.
“How did you like my surprise?” She was toying with one of hair pigtails. Trying to wrap some hairs around a finger. She tilted her head slightly.
“I was surprised indeed. Not quite sure if I was supposed to jump into the bed or not.”
“I think they wouldn’t have mind one way or another. I did hear that you didn’t stay till the end..”
“Your friends called you to rat on me?”
“Friend from friends, actually. Or more like friends from friends from friends. They sort of liked this kind of thing and I thought you might be needing something spicy to brighten your day..” She smiled broadly.
“The sun was bright enough. I was almost blinded by it’s glare.”
“I still don’t know if you liked it or not.” She mock pouted her lips.
“I still don’t know myself.”
“Well. I would have known what to do.” Her grin was very wide, “Aren’t they a pretty couple? Strange thing was. How did you know how she looked?”
“Because I saw her sitting when I went up. She was looking at me, a bit apprehensively.” I said.
“Well spotted.” Yrseke clapped her hands.
“You know.. I wonder what you do for a living. I mean the people you know. Where do you get to meet people like that?”
“Well I mix work and pleasure. Do a bit of this and a bit of that. Dance a bit for money over here, and serve drinks over there. And get hired to entertain.”
“And have you big sis cover the expenses.” I poked at her.
She smiled and kissed me on the nose. “You should change, when you are a posh girl you get grumpy. I like you better when you are not.”
“What should I change into?” I pondered.
“I like the neko teen version of you. It is easy going and funnah. I had more or less expected you to be. You are most of the time.”
“I wonder what I would have done if I was like that…”
“I think you would have jumped onto the bed.”
“Was that what you were expecting?”
“Oh hum.. you keep surprising me.”
“So change, change.” Yrseke urged.
So I changed into my nekish teen persona,. A teenage girl with green eyes, brownish hair, wearing a gypsy outfit with a long tail, cat like ears and a large beanie hat looking like a panda bear. I then jumped on the couches, chairs and tables. It made Yrseke giggle. They tried to capture me, which at first did not succeed, until I was cornered by ten men. They picked me up by the tail and removed me from the lobby by throwing me into the street. Yrseke got away with without a scratch, because that is how things always went.
When I had scrambled upright I examined the sky and predicted rain. Then we looked at each other.
“I think I am going to visit some friends of friends who are having a party.” Yrseke said.
“I think I am going to visit Taubie.” I said, “She is probably alone making something. That is your big sis. Always alone and making stuff. She probably likes some company.”
Yrseke smiled at that and said, “Yes, I think she would like your company.”
I waved goodbye by stretching my arm and waving at her and she started to walk away.
“And you know..’, I said, falling back into my nekish attitude, and then shouted, “You knowish!”
She stopped and half turned to regard me.
“If you need any help..like with nasty people, just holler. I change into a big mean dragon and eat them all.”
She smiled at that and said, “I know you will.”
And I waved goodbye again.
Of course she knew I would. She is my little sister too.
