Ah I see. Leather does happen to do that. [He swallowed a bit, firmly looking at her face, trying not to stare at the dress.] It’s nice to meet you- [He blushed a tad bit deeper] Is something wrong, Miss Molly? Is it that strange I’m dressed in such a way?
[Gives him a few quick nods, pulling up the top of her dress] You too- ah [Compresses her lips, before waving her hand dismissively] Ah-no no it’s not strange, it’s- [clears her throat again] fine. i’ts fine. Erm-did you just happen to wander this way or…?
B-b-but— wh-what— goodness sakes! Why would you name such a thing after— after animals and trees—! Bridges have nothing to do with— with bedroom ordeals!
Those things have everything to do with bedroom ordeals, Carl. Everything.
[Whispers for emphasis] Everything…
[Sanjay felt his cheeks heat up as she stared at him in the dress. Sanjay fidgeted a little, anxiously fixing his stocking] Yeah… I um. I don’t wear things like this often. [He has before. But they weren’t nearly as short.] I’m… I’m Sanjay.
[Clears her throat again, trying not to stare.] Uh- well it’s not that I’m not used to these kinds of clothes it’s- just uncomfortable…especially in this warmer weather [Waves a hand in her face as though fanning herself]

[Turns after a moment] It’s a- [Blinks, looking at the man’s outfit, staring for a few moments as a slight flush colors her cheeks]
Uh…y-yes…[Clears her throat] Um you too?
… …. you mean, like… rocks?
Rocks? Er- maybe? I mean…well there’s like [whispers] some named after animals? And…some are just named after things like bridges and padlocks and just…anything really..
… from trees?
Er- well not just trees, Carl, I think anything really, like…well they have names that like…[purses her lips] are other things…that aren’t trees…
Uh…I guess I should finish my work but…
[Keeps fidgeting, tugging at the bottom of it]
It keeps sticking to me…
Uh- well I don’t know, I guess maybe this red leather dress I once wore for something but…
[Furrows her brows] Wear it? I have to find it first! And it was so uncomfortable and [huffs, before going off to put it on]
