#7 Auntie Quin talks Quins
We just were discussing, if we should put the book of rare beasts onto the scanner to show you the subspecies of the Quinacrodurus Aerius, Eva had shown earlier, when the door bell rang.
It was already quite late and we didn’t expect any guests. The streets were empty because of the icy rain, which had come down earlier in the day. I sent Cindy to the door to open, while I poured another round of steaming hot tea for the two of us.
I could hear her excited voice in the hallway. „Petra“, she squeaked, „you have to come and see who is here.“ I stepped into the hallway and couldn’t believe what I saw. There was standing a lady just wearing a gauzy dress, which wasn’t appropriate for the weather conditions at all.
But once you have carried pink clouds home from the seaside, your start getting unflappable. Slowly I found my tongue. I tried to be kind and wanted to introduce myself.
„Petra“, Cindy leapfroged me, „this is Auntie Quin. Auntie Quin, this is Petra, my flatmate.“
I asked her into the kitchen, where the tea got cold. I had to sit down. Auntie Quin hauled a massive suitcase into the kitchen and found her seat as well.
„Tell me Auntie, what are you here for?“, Cindy was jazzed. „What lovely dress you have put on for your visit, but isn’t it a bit breezy for tonight?“ I didn’t know, that Cindy could talk so sober. Then Auntie Quin started telling us one of the stories, you won’t forget.
But lets condense it for you.
We learnt in the next few hours not only that she had had an accident just around the corner because of the ice and her beloved sportscar was a total loss, but also we found out, what she was carrying around in her suitcase.
Auntie had been on the way back home from a party and had remembered that her favorite niece was living not far. So she had taken her belongings and had found us in record time.
Where I want to go in detail a bit more is, what happened, when she expounded her extraordinary outfit. She had been to a special party, something like a tupper party, she said. And then she opened up her suitcase and showed us her purchase of the evening.
„Those dresses are just gorgeous, very vibrant, almost glowy, the underwear glows right through, fantastic transparency. I’m loving the quinacrodon line. They just started adding the purple I wear tonight, I instantly fell in love with it.“ Now Auntie Quin got carried away.
„Just let me show you some more. I have three others garments with me today.
This is the magenta just right out of the box.“ Cindy was still with her, but I wasn’t interested any more and wished them a good night. I retired as polite as I could.
I don’t know, how long they were sitting there together discussing tranparency and glowiness.
Cindy will let me know about more details, that’s for sure.
