She sipped her Sapir tea, the hot liquid soothing her like a warm hug, just as it always did. Kay was in need of that now more than ever. Here she was isolated, which was more of a good thing than bad. Why go anywhere where people knew her? Why face their harsh judgements or criticisms of her decisions? She wasn't supposed to be alive right now anyways.
Perhaps that was why she felt like a ghost. Kay felt empty, her heart and spirit shattered into a dozen pieces. If it weren't for her business to keep her occupied, she'd probably just sit in an apartment and stare out a window all day long until she ceased to exist. The tea shoppe gave her a small amount of purpose.
Evangeline Delias caught her attention. It was hard not to as her hooves on the stonework clacked. She looked as though she had something on her mind. "Is everything alright, Eva? No customers are bothering you, are they?"

Kay leaned back in her chair and gestured for Evangeline Delias to sit on the sofa if she wished. She cradled her tea cup in her hands. "I'm doing as well as can be expected. And yes, we've got a lot of orders coming in. Much larger than I had expected so soon. I'm thinking of investing in some charity or perhaps even making up a new one. We're acquiring quite a bit of profit already. What do you think?" Orphans came to mind. Or maybe she'd even send some of the money to the Mandalorians. Or maybe she'd just give some of it to...no. Kay couldn't put her name to anything or make a name for herself. The less that people knew that she was around, the better.

Her other idea eas a good one as well. Kay sipped her tea. "It would do well to help those here first. We can't ignore our neighbours, afterall. How about if we offered a special cookie, with all the proceeds going towards helping the communities here?" Customers had been asking for food items to be sold with the teas. It was better to follow their suggestions. Afterall, without customers there'd be no business.

Evangeline Delias agreed with her cookie idea. Hopefully she wasn't the type to agree with everything Kay would say. She always valued various opinions. They tended to help her solve problems and puzzels. It was when she had to deal with it all alone that she tended to mess up.
"I'm not sure what kind of cookie yet. Something delicate yet rich. As for properties, it should have something a little special. Maybe something to trigger the feelings of joy? Or to rekindle a happy memory?" Was there such a thing? Possibly. She had done some research on spices that could erase memories. Why not have something that could gently do the opposite?

She had another sip of her tea, glad that her newest employee was comfortable around her. Kay knew that she wasn't the same as she used to be. She didn't want to be a leader anymore, yet because she owned a company, that meant that in a way she sort of was one. But at least there was no politics involved.
"What would you suggest the cookies should be?"

Kay took another sip of her tea, pondering on Altiria and the sister continent called Anarris. The two had been at war for centuries. Only in the present day did things seem to calm down. Anything could spark tension and war once again. Hopefully they wouldn't be the cause of it.
"I think that we should share the charity raised equally among the two continents. Even though our shop is here, it would probably serve us better to look after both." She looked to Evangeline Delias , wondering what she thought on the subject. How much or how little that she knew of war and politics, Kay had no idea.

She tilted her head to the side a bit as she looked to Evangeline Delias , an idea coming to mind. "Would you like to travel to Anarris with me? We could leave Doyle to handle the shoppe. Make it a girls' week out? I could teach you some other aspects of the business. And we could shop for more unique ingredients for our teas and baked goods. Would you like that? Just don't feel pressured to say yes. But we could go by train. I hear it's a beautiful ride." And more discreet than just flying. There was no need for them to rush their journey.

She smiled as Evangeline Delias approved of her idea of them going away on a trip together. "Wonderful. I'll get it all arranged. You needn't worry about anything but to pack your own luggage. Everything else will be taken care of. " It could be good for the both of them.

Evangeline blinked at her summary of the planets quarrels. She was serious, wasn’t she? Over a stupid, bloody name? She shook her head after a moment. “Sometimes sentients are the most dumbest things,” she muttered.
Either way, Eva clapped her hands ever lightly at the confirmation of their trip. “Oh, I am so excited! I can’t wait!” She smiled, “Are you sure? Is there nothing I can do to help?” If there was something she could do to help, she'd love too. Wouldn't be fair to make Kay Arenais to do all the legwork... Not when she had 4 legs, anyway!

At the lady's request to help plan for the trip, Kay just smiled and shook her head. "Oh I'm quite sure. We'll tend to the shop in the meantime and get some batches prepped for Doyle to take care of before we go. There's really not a lot to do. Everything on the Anarris end will be done through the datapad." The legwork wouldn't happen until they got there, afterall.

"Yes I'll let you help when I need it. As for relaxing; that doesn't come so easy these days. There's still too much trauma...if it weren't for some of these teas, I don't think that I'd ever get some sleep." Kay hadn't really opened up to Evangeline Delias about her past, recent or otherwise. At least not in any detail.
