"Nami is right," Robin looked at the two on the bed, "There could be any number of reasons why he didn't show up. Losing someone who is following you can be difficult. But I'm sure he's just fine." Because of how Nyremme looked after what Cassia said, she didn't want to admit that she agreed that he could be dead.
"What do you mean you haven't found her yet," Roman roared. "Her father assured me that she's never left the palace grounds. Find her! And find that wretched servant of mine!"
"Sir, Cassia left the island months ago. It is unlikely that we'll find her while also searching for your bride." The captain of the guard frowned, and fidgeted nervously, "Perhaps it would be wise to just let her go?"
"Nonsense," Roman scowled, "She'll be the perfect servant for my bride. She knows how I want things run around here."
"O-of course sir," the guard replied, "I will dispatch notice to the search parties to keep an eye out for her while searching for Princess Nyremme."
"Good. Now leave my sight!"
"Don't you think this is excessive," Usopp asked as he helped the cyborg carry decorations up to the main deck.
"No," Franky replied, "Luffy wants to throw a SUPER welcoming party so we're going all out."
"All right, now that we're done with the pampering," Nami grinned, "Its time to get dressed." She went through her shared closet with Robin to find something for Nyremme and Cassia to wear. Once she found appropriate items, she tossed them to them. "Put these on."
Nyremme's face went pale as she looked down. "N-No...they wouldn't... he wouldn't... he can't..." Her voice got weaker and trailed off. "H-He told me he'd be fine... M-Maybe he's just running late?" She looked up with hopeful eyes but the gaze in Cassia's only made her gaze look downward again.
Nami looked at the two and shook her head. "H-Hey, we don't have any solid evidence. Don't give up hope just yet!"
"Do you think something happened to him?" Nami finished applying the mask and took a seat across from the bed. "Did he give you a time frame on when he would be there?"
"If anyone knew of your friendship, it's likely they suspected him of helping you escape. In which case he would be thrown in jail. Though, he could also have been delayed by trying to throw them off." Cassia let out a sigh, "But chances are, since you were to wed Roman, your friend is likely dead."
"From my kingdom?" Nyremme pondered for a moment before shaking her head. "The only man I was ever really close to was my friend Andrue. But he was just a friend he helped me escape my home... He was the one that was supposed to meet me on that island but... I haven't heard a word since I left..."
"Considering the only guys I know that aren't total trash are the ones on this ship," Cassia fell back onto the bed, "I think I'll pass on that part."
"You don't even have a crush," Nami frowned.
"Uh," Cassia frowned, "Nope. Probably best not to get too attached anyway in case things don't work out and we end up leaving."
"Okay but did you crush on anyone, you know, before you got here?"
"Once," Cassia fiddled with her bracelet, "a long time ago. It was concealed by loyalty and I paid the price for it. She did too, in the end." After an unable silence fell upon the room she sat up and turned to Nyremme. "What about you? Anyone from your kingdom worth mentioning?"
"Wait," Robin looked at Cassia, "You don't mean..."
"Later. It's Nyremme's turn," Cassia smiled.
"Just white nail polish is fine for me. Easy to match it with outfits." Nyremme smiled but then tried to keep a straight face for the masks.
"Also during these spa days, girls will gossip and talk about boys and such." Nami grinned.
Robin chuckled softly. "Why not have a little fun and go all out?"
[i I wonder why.] Cassia felt her face get heavy as the mask was applied but she didn't complain. "How long does this need to stay on exactly?"
"About 15-20 minutes give or take. Don't worry." Once Nami was done applying the mask to Cassia, she moved on to Nyremme. "Now, what are your favorite colors? It will help us decide which nail polish to use."
"Blue," Cassia replied.
Nyremme got nervous at the sight of the mask but did as she was told. "Okay." She tied her hair back in a messy high ponytail. [i How embarrassing I can't even make a ponytail look nice...] She thought to herself with a sigh.
"After we finish up with the masks we'll do hair and nails next. It's been awhile since I've gotten to style someone's hair other than my own! Robin doesn't let me do her hair very often." Nami grinned with a light chuckle.
"I get the feeling I've missed out on things that are considered the norm for women." Of course, Cassia wasn't wrong and she was going to get first hand experience on what is was like to be pampered for once. She was almost glad that she had decided to have her hair pulled back today when she was the container in Nami's hands. "What is that?"
"This," Nami unscrewed the lid, "Is a dead sea mud mask."
"A," Jun blinked, "what?"
"Just close your eyes and don't move." As soon as Jun did as instructed, Nami began applying the mask to her face. "Nyremme, go ahead and put your hair up. This stuff is great for skin but its a pain to get out of hair."
Nyremme giggled. "This is pretty exciting."
Nami and Robin started getting everything prepared and Nyremme took a seat on the bed. "So what do girls even do during spa days?" She asked curiously.
Robin smiled. "Usually they'll do facials, give each other massages, do their nails and hair, anything 'girly' that you can think of." She smiled softly at the younger girl.
Nami grinned. "There's also hot rock massages which are really nice!"
"Thank y out." Cassia took a sip of the smoothie and once again relished in the sweetness of it. Before she had a chance to finish, Nami dragged her and Nyremme downstairs with Robin following closely behind. "Where are we going?"
"To our room," Nami said, "It's more private and we won't have to deal with Luffy."
"Right," Cassia rolled her eyes.
"First," Nami sat the two women on the bed, "facials. Since you tell are, well, inexperienced in pampering yourselves, Robin and I will take charge."
"Somehow I get there feeling this isn't just some random spa day."
Sanji chuckled before taking Nyremme's glass. "I'll bring you out your smoothie Miss Cassia." He gave a slight bow before heading back to the kitchen. He put Nyremme's dish in the sink before seeing Cassia's smoothie and grabbing it. He brought it back out to Cassia with a smile. "Let me know if you girls need anything else. Otherwise enjoy your spa day."
Nyremme grinned. "Thanks Sanji."
"I get that but doing too much at once could damage your body." Cassia wondered if maybe she was worrying a little too much. Even if she was, it wasn't something she could help, considering the situation. "So, what exactly does a spa day entail?"
"Well," Nami went into detail about what would happen. "But we can sit out here a little longer. Just until we finish our smoothies."
"Oh, I think I left mine in the kitchen. Let me just..."
"Sanji," Nami looked at the chef, "Could you go get Cassia's smoothie?"
"I can do it myself."
Nyremme smiled and nodded. "Miss Cassia, you need to remember I've never had to do anything myself before I ran. I had training in etiquette and mannerisms. Not in protecting myself or fighting. So this isn't training I'm used to but I'm glad I have to opportunity I need to be able to protect myself if the time comes when I can't rely on you all." She finished off the smoothie rather fast before taking a seat. "So did I hear a mini spa day?" She grinned. "I've never had friends that were girls, so I've never gotten to have a girl's spa day. This is exciting!"
"Alright," Cassia nodded, "I guess I'll join you." She didn't really want to but she also knew that Sanji had a point. A relaxing spa day was needed. When Nyremme joined them, her expression mimicked that of the chef. "He's training you too hard. At this rate you won't be able to move." Her gaze flickered to the crows nest, "I'm going to have a word with him."
"Oh no you don't," Nami said as a scrambled to her feet, grabbing hold of Cassia. "You are going to relax. If Nyremme says she's fine then we won't worry about it. If it makes you feel better, we can even ask Chopper to check her over."
"But...." Cassia let out a defeated sigh then took a seat next to Nyremme. "Are you sure you're okay?"
