    Taking the handkerchief, Zoe paused and briefly considered blowing her nose in it. The thought made her laugh, snorting through her happy tears, but she opted not to. She simply wiped her eyes and handed the handkerchief back with a soft smile.

    "Yeah, sugar. Let's go. Carry me away, ya big scaly beastie."

    "Your wish is my command," Vega grinned and helped her inside. Once they were up on the station itself, it didn't take them long to reach their destination and get situated. Everything was set up for them.

    "I'll see you in a few," Vega gave her a kiss on the cheek before heading over to his bed and going under.

    In the simulation Zoe would find herself in a more generic dorm room with enough time to get ready. Or rather adjust to being able to walk again. Vega would be arriving once again to escort her to the ballroom for their masquerade.

    He'd knock on the door, same familiar knock, but Vega could barely contain his excitement. He couldn't wait to see Zoe's face when she opened the door.

    Zoe woke up in her dorm room. It felt so natural, so real. But when she sat up and looked to the right of her bed, her chair wasn't there. There was a brief moment of panic as she searched the room with her eyes until she remembered where she was. The simulation. She... shouldn't need her chair in here.

    Cautiously, she swung her leg around. Wait, what? She swung her legs around! Zoe wiggled her toes, but that was nothing new. She could do that in the real world. Slowly, her feet touched the floor and she paused. The carpet felt real. So real. Zoe stood up quickly and immediately hit the floor. What?! No, no. Why hadn't it worked?

    But she realized. She wasn't used to it. Bearing weight on her legs. Slowly, shakily, she stood up. And as she did, her knees shaking more with hear than anything else, she cracked a wide grin across her lips. She was standing!!! She immediately tried to take a step and nearly fell again. But she caught herself this time. And tried again. And again. And after several failed attempts and a little rug burn on her knees, she got it.

    Now she had to get ready.

    Zoe definitely took too long admiring her legs when she got undressed. Smooth. No scars. They were perfect. But something about that made her stomach flip, and not in a good way. Still, it was fine. She could walk! But it was nearly time to go and she was still in her underwear. Zoe ran around the room, tripping more than she should have, and got ready. Her dress was almost the same, but it didn't have that little bow that had been put on it when Ma had given it to her. Oh well, she knew the dress in the real world had it.

    By the time Vega knocked on the door, she was still finishing her makeup. Still standing herself in the eye with the damn mascara. "Just a minute!" she called out as she put on her lip gloss. There. It was perfect. Zoe draped her braid over her shoulder and slipped her shoes on. Flats. She could barely walk as it was. She didn't need heels ruining it further.

    Opening the door, Zoe was nearly in tears again. She had just done her makeup, damnit! Apparently it didn't run in the simulation though because when she wiped her cheeks no foundation or mascara came off in her hands. "Hey Sugar. I- dammit Vega, I don't even know what I'm supposed to be doin' here."

    It was crazy. She was almost the same height as him like this. She wasn't looking up at him like usual. She liked it, but also missed seeing him from below. It was strange just naturally being so close to eye level with anyone.

    Vega thought he knew what to expect, but seeing Zoe standing was still a sight to take in. He once again pulled out a handkerchief and held it out for her. He was a little confused at what she meant. Did she not like it, or was it something else?

    "What do you mean? It's your night. You can do whatever you want, or..." he hesitated for a moment, "If you wanna hop outta here and head back that's cool too."

    "Damnit, Golden boy! I love it. You're such a dweeb." Pushing forward, Zoe wrapped her arms around his neck and hugged him tight. "I can't believe you did all this for me, you dumb romantic ass. I don't wanna leave. I wanna dance with you."

    She was laughing now, the tears still coming because this was just too much. Too many emotions, even if they were good. "I love you," she whispered, not letting Vega go.

    Relief washed over him when she told him everything was fine. Perfect, tonight was going to be perfect. He had that stupid grin on his face. Vega returned her hug keeping her close, not really wanting to let go. This hug had the same levels of affection packed into them, but this was also different. But it wasn't a bad sort of different.

    Normally he'd have something cheeky to shoot right back at her, but he was enjoying this joy that was radiating off of her. You'd have yo be a jellyfish to not feel it.

    "I love you too Zoe," he pulled back just a bit but moved back in to give her an equally passionate kiss.

    Zoe shuddered and leaned against Vega, putting her head on his shoulder. "Is it bad I almost don't wanna dance? We could do anything. I mean- I assume we can anyway. But I also really want to dance with you, so..."

    Taking him by his hand, Zoe started dragging Vega along behind her. If the simulation was set up like the school, then she knew exactly where the ballroom was. She wondered if there were any NPCs around. If she could get a video of the night. So many questions and excited fleeting emotions were running through her head.

    Alex did say he'd spare no expense to make it as authentic as possible. Vega hadn't actually been to any vr events up to this point, but looking around it was more or less just like the school. They must have gathered data to gather the general crowd dispersion on campus for the event because it almost felt like they hadn't left.

    "It's not like we don't have the entire night you know. We can totally go crazy in here. Wolf out... we don't have to spend the night just dancing," he said as she dragged him to the ballroom. It took him a few seconds but he matched her pace so she wasn't dragging him along. "I didn't think it would be this realistic in here, holy hell."

    Zoe stopped and looked back at Vega, thinking about what he said for a moment. They cold do anything they wanted, technically. No consequences in here. She doubted they could get into any locked areas of the school or find test answers; not that she would want to do that anyway. But looking out the window, it really did look like the whole of Starlight Academy's campus was at their beck and call for the night.

    "Well I'm at a loss, sugar. If y'all could do anythin' on campus and not get in trouble fer it. What would y'all do?"

    What would he do? Vega looked out at the campus, thinking about this question. This wasn't some videogame where half the reason you were playing was to cause mayhem because you could. This was someplace he knew all too well, and he was standing here. It was a little overwhelming now that he saw everything.

    "Asking me the hard questions huh? I would... oh god there's so many possibilities. Not a clue. I might be too much of a goody two shoes," he could think of a few other things but, frankly he was raised better than to say anything like that. "I mean you haven't tried turning into a wolf yet that's always a place to start I guess."
