Damien looks up at Kalila as she comes over, the empty tray of food beside him. He didn't want be rude, he didn't want to get up and leave the safety of his alley. He was still slightly freaked out about te money situation. He pulled his bag of money out as he stood. He had about money to buy Kalila one really nice dress, or two not so nice ones. He sighed inwardly. They had really little money, like all the money that was left was what Sebastian had kept for his own personal use. if it came down to it, he would use it for the crew, but Damien didn't want his brother to have to spend his own pay to support their crew when it had been his fault that they were nearly out what with his spending habits and all.

Damien smiled at Kalila. "Come on then, let's go get you that lovely dress you want," He says as he offers his arm. He is careful to keep their skin from touching, not wanting to be the cause of an episode. He pulled her through the streets to the nicest dress shop in town. He didn't share how he knew it was the best, but just led her there. He had once been with a girl that had worked there and told him about every other shop in town. This one was for the really rich pirate lords' children, wives, or mistresses.

As Damien led her inside, they were greeted by a woman who looked maybe twice Damien's age. "Sebastian or Damien?" She asked until she saw Kalila. "How nice it is to see you Damien. A dress for you or the lady?" She asked with a smile. Damien just nodded to Kalila, smiling back. This lady had seen him before with a few other girls, ones that had been sent to get a dress and had met up with him on the way. He liked watching the shows they put on, displaying the dresses.

"A nice one that would pass as a noble's dress," He says as he sets the bag of money on the counter. The woman nods, not glancing at the money until she had measured Kalila with her skilled seamstress eyes. Most dresses here were corseted so they would fit exactly, if not, pretty well since they were adjustable.

The lady grabbed a few dresses and led Kalila back to a room to change into dresses. The first one she put on the lady immediately moved to take it off, shaking her head no. When she put on a few more dresses, each one came off almost immediately. Finally, a dress she put on stayed on. "It looks amazing," She whispers as she stares at Kalila in a dirty and slightly cracked mirror.

Damien sat waiting, fiddling with some lace on a nearby dress. Lace always held his interest for whatever reason, the intricacy of the patterns. Lace was expensive considering it was all done by hand. He looked at the other dresses, the colors popping out at him. He wanted to go ahead and leave tonight for the town, but he knew that if anything went wrong whatsoever, there'd be no point in having gone as they wouldn't get anything.

Damien looked up as he saw a rustle. When he spotted Kalila, he stared, outright and openly. "Wow," he whispers as he looks up at her. He smiles slightly. "You certainly do look like a noble woman," He comments, "And certainly the most beautiful," he whispers softly so she would have probably barely heard it. The woman comes out with a smile looking at Damien's face. "His favorite color," She whispers to Kalila.
