The tributes would be coming to her and her team any moment now and Ryan was making sure everything was in place and ready to go when they got there. Crow was going through the different waxes and styling gels and picking out only the best ones to use on the tributes while Ryan went through clothes and accessories. Luna simply leaned against one of the counters filing her nails with a cheeky grin on her face.

"I wonder what kind of filth we're going to have to clean up this time" ,Luna said in her capitol accent. Crow and Ryan looked to each other and shook their heads and rolled their eyes at the woman before getting back to what they were doing. "You know I think that the twist on the games this year is great! The action that should come from not only 24 but 72 tributes in one arena this year...." ,Luna sighed dreamily. "The capitol always knows how to set up for a good show eh?"

"LUNA SHUT THE FUCK UP!" ,both Ryan and Crow said at the same time. "Get off your ass and get to work, we don't have a lot of time" ,Ryan stated heatedly before shoving a pile of outfits into Luna's hands. "Sort through them and match them up" ,Ryan continued.

Luna glared at Ryan then let out a 'Humph' before reluctantly getting to work. She rolled her eyes as she looked at the outfits Ryan chose. "Plain, Plain, has no color what so ever....plain, plain...." ,Luna commented in an annoyed tone as she went through the outfits.

"LUNA!...." ,Both Ryan and Crow shouted at the same time.

"Hmm....yes....what is it?" ,Luna asked as if she had no idea why the two would be shouting at her.

"SHUT THE FUCK UP!" ,again both Ryan and Crow stated before beginning to lay out all of the supplies they needed. As they stood side by side mixing and prepping they looked to each other while Luna was turned away. "That woman drives me nuts" ,Crow whispered. "She's so far up MacNimare's ass I swear".

"Yeah but we have to deal with her or at least try too....Just don't let her talk down to the tributes like she usually does and if she does slap her" ,Ryan stated.

"Wait, can I really slap her....how about wring her neck? Would that be alright too?" ,Crow joked as he held up a pair of scissors and began sharpening them. Ryan simply laughed then shoved the man lightly careful not to get him cut by the scissors he had in his hand.

When they were all finished setting everything up Ryan took a seat on an empty space on the counter next to Crow and the two passed the time by making fun of Luna while she wasn't looking until the tributes arrived.

Ben was pushed through the prep area arguing and fighting the whole way. "Will you shut up and get in there, you're not going to be alive for long you little shit," Still in his work clothes he kicks the man in the shin "This game is so fucking stupid. You better pray I die early so I don't get a good chance to kick your ass."

two more men come in and shove him in the prepping area "You three deal with him. He's your problem now." They quickly close the door behind them, as Ben looks around slightly annoyed at the three of them. "So... You guys are going to do what?"

Luna sighed looking at him "Oh no no no. This will never do," looking at his dirty appearance. while he looks at her "Neither will that attitude bitch."

When the boy was shoved into the room Ryan turned and looked at him and when Luna made her comment the head stylist rolled her eyes before looking to the boy once more. It wasn't odd for other districts stylists to push their tributes on Ryan and her team. The woman didn't mind of course. "Hey kid why don't you come take a seat, ignore Luna over there she's about as intelligent as a fucking block of wood" ,Ryan stated before giving the boy a kind smile. "We've gotta get you washed up first Crow here can give you the perfect soap to use to get all the grime from work off of you, the showers are right through those doors right there" ,Ryan continued as she pointed to two doors in the room. "There's towels in there already and when you're finished Crow can help you find a.....wait, I got something for you to wear". Ryan walked over to her closet and pulled out an outfit, it belonged to Cinna once upon a time and the boy had a similar build to her mentor and she thought it would look great on him for the dinner ceremony.

"I'm Darius Crow, that's Ryan she's probably the best stylist you can get in the capitol. Listen man I know that this whole thing sucks but trust Ryan and myself, screw Luna she's just a bitch but Ryan and I we'll take care of you, what's your name champ?" ,Crow asked.

Ryan walked over to the boy and held the outfit against him to get an idea of how he would look in it, "Perfect, alright shower up and when you're done I'll dress you up so nicely that as soon as you walk into that dining hall heads will turn, guaranteed" ,Ryan stated before giving the boy a friendly pat on the shoulder.

"You know I don't like his attitude and he is beyond dirty Ryan you'll never be able to fix....to fix that.....UGH....if the district 3 stylists couldn't fix it and they are far....far more experienced then you what makes you think you can fix this mess" ,Luna ranted as she crossed her arms and gave both Ryan and Crow a nasty look.

"Listen loose lipped Luna, I'm only going to say this one more time, SHUT THE FUCK UP! As for this guy right here, the district 3 stylists have their heads to far up their asses to know what he would truly look good in they probably tried to dress him in something like what your wearing" ,Ryan said in response.

"Wh....what's wrong with what I'm wearing?" ,Luna snapped.

"Do you really have to ask that?" ,Crow asked shaking his head and rolling his eyes.

"UGH....I swear I work with idiots" ,Luna said with a huff as she threw her hands in the air and walked off mumbling something under her breath.

Ryan simply looked back to the boy, "Alright go ahead and wash up, make sure to scrub under you're nails so I don't have to scrape them too much, Crow and I will explain everything we're going to do before we do it alright there's no need to worry with us" ,she told him.

Crow handed him a bottle of shampoo/conditioner combo and a bar of soap, "Alright this shampoo with clean damn near anything and it smells really good, this soap has no scent but it will soften your skin and clean deep into your pores and get all the dirt and grime out, Ryan and I will be picking your cologne afterwards hence the reason the soap doesn't have a scent, Towels are on the shelf there's scrub brushes in the top drawer by the sink none of them have been used we keep everything sanitary here alright" ,Crow told him before motioning for him to head into the shower.

Ben sighed "I was in a hurry getting here so I just came here in my work clothes, My god it's like talking to twig you have to bend down and treat it nicely before it snaps. and I'm not going to even begin with that shitty personality of her," talking about Luna who huffs and storms out.

Ben started to relax a little when being around Crow and Ryan getting all of this stuff to wash with it was like he was getting set to go a big fancy ball. He never liked dressing up but he know what the dinner will be like and the people that will be their to watch them like their caged animals in a zoo. "Sure alright but don't give me anything that is too fancy pants, because if a lot of people act like her at this dinner I can't promise that the clothes will come back in one piece."

Walking into the bathroom he almost dropped everything he was carrying. Thinking back to the old tub/shower combo he had in his tiny bathroom, this room was almost as big as half of his house. "Holy fuck," leaked out as he looked around to see giant mirrors A huge bathtub that looked like it could be a hot tub too. A glass shower where it one you can step in and it has a little tile seat and a bar it was big enough to have three people showering in there and still have space.

"Oh, to be rich and live in the capital huh," He sat his stuff down and took his clothes off to jump in the shower, even the water felt different. 30 minutes to hour later after he got all the dirt and dust off of him he when to the sink and started to brush his teeth and groom himself. He walked out never felt so clean in his life I don't even think a baby could get this clean with the new pair of clothes that Ryan left for him and he had on a pair of glasses. Working in the dark for long period did that to his eyesight but it wasn't bad to point where he would need glasses all the time.

"alright I don't think I ever been this clean in my life, thanks for the clothes, so what now?"

"Alright now that's better" ,Ryan stated when Ben came out of the bathroom. The kid looked good in Cinna's clothes, Cinna never over dressed like the rest of the people in the capitol neither did Ryan and she didn't like to dress her tributes that way. When he asked what was next Crow spun one of the barber chairs to face Ben. ""I'm gonna give you a shape up, you seem to be decently clean cut already so your hair won't need much work, while I do that Crow is going to give you a manicure....." ,Ryan paused for a moment having already gotten a good idea of how been was. "Don't worry there's nothing girly about a manicure, Crow is just gonna cut, file and scrape underneath your nails and then get rid of the cuticles before he puts a mineral oil on them, makes your nails look clean don't worry there won't be any nail polish Crow likes to keep all that to himself" ,Ryan stated before flashing her assistant a smile.

"I'm not gay by the way just to make that clear" ,Crow began as he set everything up. "Ryan insists that I am but I'm not I love women just as much as she does and that's a lot, come....take a seat and we'll get to work on ya" ,Crow continued as he motioned to the chair he had just set up.

Ryan began to get her clippers ready and Crow pulled out his nail kit as they waited for Ben to sit down. "Ryan is really good with hair, any kind of hair you're gonna look great by the time we're done trust me" ,Crow stated giving a friendly smile.

"So Ben tell me a bit about yourself while I work and I promise I'll return the favor" ,Ryan stated as she cleaned out her clippers and sharpened the blade a bit before putting a guard on it. She always did this while prepping the tributes it was her way of telling them that she cared and that she wasn't just another selfish prick from the capitol.

It was all really just to much for Seph to handle enough to function. The journey to the Capitol had been one of numb dissociation. Seph did not want this. There were too many people, she thought before even getting to the Capitol. It was upon their arrival that she completely shut down. The Capitol Square was so...filled. There were so many of them. Inside, her heart was aching and she fell back into the moment when she had to leave Coal, her fox, sitting in the front yard of her farm to go to the Peacekeepers who escorted her and the other Tributes out of District 10. Who would feed them when she was gone... and in the likely event that she would not return.

While on the journey, no one from District 10 attempted any kind of conversation. They knew better not to, as Seph was notorious for not being receptive to other people. But that was all in the past. Now would be the moment she had been dreading the most. Styling. Escorted to the District 10 Styling room, she stepped inside and furrowed her brow slightly. It was surprisingly empty. She wondered vaguely where everyone else from 10 would be at the moment. When the escorts left, Seph made no movement to venture further into the sterile looking room. It made her miss her home even more. There was no scent of earth here, or trees, or hay, or cows. It was cold, and smelled too...clean.

"Ben sat down in the seat and started to relax. His left eyebrow arched as they talked about Crow using nail polish and how Ryan was into girls "Now now don't worry you two I don't judge on that, Though I have to say you would think the girl would do the nails and the boy would cut my hair, but you know confuse me even more why don't you." he said laughing a little.

When she asked about his life he kind of sighed before she got started with his hair. "To be honest with the two of you. I really have no reason to be here, I know I was chosen but I live in a dump. My father is lock away when was young and my mother passed away recently. I don't have any living relatives that I can live with cause I no really good a rules and living with someone else and I have no girlfriend to care for or to go back too. I'm here just to cause an uproar cause I'm poor, never trained, nothing to fight for but to do something..." He waited as they did his hair and nails. He never experience something like this before, and wished he could have gotten chosen sooner if this was what they were going to do to him but he knew that this was just for show.

Part of him wanted to believe that his life could be this way but reality hit him the more and more he thought about this. "You know what I found my reason for being here, I'm going to go and have fun and find who is responsible for holding these games. Cause whoever thinks up stuff like this is one person you got to meet in your life time."

Ryan laughed at Ben's comment about the hair and nails, "Trust me I'm better with hair then nails and well Crow just has a way with getting nails to look perfect he does make up too but you won't be needing any of that my friend you're in good hands with us" ,she told him. As Ben told his story Ryan and Crow both listened intently, the kid had a rough life and both of the stylists felt for him mainly Ryan, she always tended to have a soft spot for her tributes struggles because she knew how most of them were treated by the capitol alone forget the peacekeepers and other members in their districts.

"Hey kid live it up while you can here ok being selected as a tribute has to be the worse thing that can happen in a guy's life" ,Crow stated quietly so no one but Ben and Ryan could hear him. He hated the games with a passion and although he put up a front in the face of other capitol residents and the president he despised what they did to the tributes.

Ryan leaned down after finishing Ben's hair after he made the comment about wanting to meet the guy who ran the games, "He's a fucking slime ball but you'll meet him soon enough, he'll be at dinner and at the parade tomorrow you'll be seeing a lot of him I personally hete the man but don't tell anyone I told you that if anyone found out I'd be dead" ,Ryan whispered before turning Ben to face the mirror so he could get a good look at himself.

As she turned to walk over to where the cologne was she stopped noticing a young woman standing in the doorway. A smile crossed her face and she made her way over to the girl, she seemed quiet and Ryan definitely got the vibe that she didn't want to be here. "Hey there, I'm Ryan and by the smell of livestock and earth on your clothes you must be from District 10, I've been waiting for you, please take a seat while I get the stuff ready for you to take a shower" ,Ryan stated giving the young woman a smile. "And don't be shy I'm here to help in any way I can". Cinna's good manners and kindness always seemed to show through Ryan at points and Crow always loved that about her.

Ryan made her way over to the drawer that contained the soap and shampoos and grabbed everything the young woman would need to get clean and placed it neatly into a shower bag before bringing it over to her. "Take your time, make sure to get everything clean for me I have an outfit ready for you it's hanging up in the bathroom, when you're all clean and dressed come back out here and I can get to work ok" ,Ryan said, she spoke soft and kept a kind smile on her face the entire time she spoke to the young woman hoping that it would bring the girl out of her shell a little bit.

Seph was content to linger near the closed door way as the three chatted. As it usually did, her eyes wondered around the lengthy styling room with a look of cautious curiosity. The smell of the various styling chemicals like the hair gel, nail polish, and insane variety of soaps hurt her nose, and the high intensity lighting hurt her eyes. She had been standing there a few moments before Ryan finally noted her presence. Seph absently shifted on her feet as she walked up and she looked at her from the side of her vision; jaw set, eyes filled with distrust, and posture defensive. This was her usual mannerism, but it had intensified during her short time in the Capitol. Though, Ryan seemed friendly enough. Her smile seemed genuine, and she spoke quietly, which Seph greatly appreciated because so many in this godforsaken place seemed to enough shouting at the top of their lungs. All vying for the attention of people who did not matter. Despite the difference in the District 10 Stylist, Seph still maintained an air of distrust and dislike, and chose not to say anything. It was rare that she did ever anyway.

A small hand reached out and took the shower bag gently, careful not to make any contact with the woman's hand as she did so. Then, she offered a small nod before walking off towards the showers. She closed the door, locked it behind herself, then set the shower bag down on a small stool, squinting to examine the outfit that Ryan had mentioned. Though she was quiet, she was certainly attentive.

When the girl barely looked at Ryan and the way she shied away from her told the stylist that she had a lot more work to do then just hair and makeup. Ryan said nothing to Crow about the young woman figuring he would probably try and talk to her as well eventually. He was very similar to Ryan in many ways and his kindness spoke volumes but sometimes he could be a little too forward. As Crow finished up doing Ben's nails Ryan grabbed a bottle of cologne it had a sweet smell to it but was very masculine. "Alright all that's left to do is spritz some of this on you and you're good to go" ,Ryan told him before spraying a little on his neck then across his chest, then his wrists. She inhaled deeply to smell the fragrance. "Perfect not only do you smell great but you look great as well, dinner should be starting in a few hours both Crow and I will see you there" ,Ryan told him with a bright smile before she fixed the collar of his shirt and gave him a friendly pat on the back.

After she finished with Ben she made her way over to set everything up to work on the young woman who had just arrived. Ryan could tell she was troubled and distant and she wanted to make the girl as comfortable as possible if she could. The stylist laid out some things for hair and nails like usual and she figured she would let the young woman decide if she wanted make up or not.

Whitley had enjoyed the train ride, sitting and looking over District one and then the Capitol with all it's screaming and adoring fans as they crowded around the train. She clung to Michelle a bit, though that was short lived when she was shown her own room. A sweet older man came in with a crazy-haired woman, together they laid out a plan of style that appalled the mild girl. Swallowing hard she watched in horror as they pulled her clothes off and proceeded to bathe her. She was scrubbed down then dressed up.

Cringing, Whitley fondled the ruffle thing that hung down in front of her. This was before sinking to the floor in the corner of the foyer area near the stylists doors. She would be a laughing stock, not that she was one to dress up for others.. but she did like to look nice. This dress... it was NOT nice. Not even flattering. It looked like her stylist picked the worst dress on purpose. "If I wanted to be made into a fool I could have done it myself."

"No... I'm certain you'd have done a far better job." A voice said with a lilting laugh.

Whit's head shot up and her blue eyes lifted over the lady standing before her. A sympathetic look in her eye as Whitley rose to her feet.

"Oh dear, that is a monstrosity." The woman said with a scowl crossing her lips. "Which District are you dove?" She asked approaching and lifting the fabric here and there as though trying to get a gauge on the figure beneath it.

"Two..." She said wringing her hands in the gold gloves.

"Two? Are you kidding me?" The woman yanked on her hand, "This won't do, not at all. Come with me sweetheart."

Whitley followed the woman, well was more dragged by the woman. She was surprisingly strong. The woman pushed open a door and past a woman at a station.

"Look what I have here.... a prize... a misfit. See what that stylist did to her... poor thing." She shoved the girl in a chair. "District two of all things..." The woman muttered and began rummaging through things behind her.

Her eyes landed on a curious person in front of her. A male with dark flesh covering his frame getting ready to leave, followed by another male. Now Whit had been around men her entire life, but this man, well, he wasn't like any other man she'd ever seen before. "I'm Whitley," She spoke softly, her fingers working to pull the gloves off her hands as a soft blush crept along her cheeks.

"I'm Luna, that is Ryan and the man you are staring at is Crow... and I don't know who these other losers are... well he used to be dirty..."

Whitley's mouth fell open, she had never heard anyone speak about or to people like this woman.

Seph stood in the bathroom there for a long time before she finally pulled off her jacket and left it on the floor beside her boots which she kicked off carefully. A simple tank top and jeans was all she was left in as she walked to the sink and peered reluctantly in the mirror. She never really cared for appearances before. She kept her black hair short because long hair got in the way, and ever bothered with make-up. In fact, if she was presented with a display of the stuff, she would not have been able to distinguish eyeliner from foundation. The harsh white light that seemed terribly popular here in the Capitol made the faint freckle-like blemishes on her skin stand out, and it made her look even more pale than usual. The shadows stood out on her skin; subtle definition of her muscles -needed for working on a farm and climbing trees, and the other things she enjoyed doing back home. With a sharp huff, Seph looked away from the mirror, stripped the rest of the way down, and stepped into the shower, carrying the shower bag along with her.

She took her time, smelling the various soaps and chose the one that smelled the tamest. Some sort of lavender based soap it smelled like. Much better than the overpoweringly sweet stuff. After that, the shower went by quickly, at least she thought so. Reluctantly, she finally stepped out of the soothingly warm water and dried off before dressing. She was happy to not see a skirt. Not that she really had anything against them, it just made it hard to move. At last, more than a half an hour after going into the shower, she exited the bathroom and lingered once more near the door.

When Luna came crashing through the door both Ryan and Crow looked at each other and rolled their eyes and when the woman spoke it made things even worse. At least this time she had the decency to introduce them to the young woman she had dragged into the room with her. Crow looked to the young woman when she said her name and his genetically altered capitol turquoise eyes sparkled in the light of the room as he extended his hand with a smile, "As she said I'm Crow what can we do for ya darling?" ,he asked in a friendly tone.

"Well isn't it obvious? Look at what they did to her" ,Luna stated as a tear fell from her eye. "I mean District 2.....I'd expect this from someone like....like you or Ryan but the stylists in district 2....I ca...." ,Luna began but was interrupted.

Ryan glared at her, again the woman insulted her talent and she was getting sick of it, "LUNA!...." ,Ryan began but was cut off by Luna rolling her eyes and waving her hand in Ryan's face.

"Yeah, yeah....shut the fuck up I get it....you're so touchy Ryan jeez take a little constructive criticism for once" ,Luna stated as she leaned against a wall and began to file her nails.

"No Luna what you say is NOT constructive criticism it is insulting and belittling and I'm sick of it.....If you insult my skills one more time I'll lock you in the fucking wardrobe closet understand" ,Ryan snapped while pointing her finger at Luna. She then let out an aggravated growl and got back to work prepping her station.

Crow snickered as Ryan told Luna off he loved when Ryan put Luna in her place. Luna turned to Crow and gave him a dirty look, "What are you laughing at? Your hair makes you look like you got into a fight with a lawn mower if I were these tributes I wouldn't let you two come near me" ,Luna taunted as she filed away. Ryan was about to say something but she simply grit her teeth and unclenched her fists and got back to work.

"Luna shut the fuck up you look like you got fucked by a cotton candy machine and it jizzed in your hair" ,Crow retorted.

"How dare you!" ,Luna snapped.

"How dare you walk into RYAN'S office and decide to be a total bitch" ,Crow snapped right back.

"Watch your tongue boy you have no idea who you're messing with" ,Luna tried to sound threatening but she didn't. Truth was she had run out of insults to throw at the two and hated being upstaged she simply made her way back over to Whitley and tried to ignore Ryan and Crow's laughter at her.

"Fucked by a cotton candy machine....." ,Ryan stated through her laughter.

"Oh yeah" ,Crow stated before giving the stylist a high five.

Ryan then turned and seen Seph standing in the bathroom doorway, she felt kinda bad that the young woman had to witness the argument and was worried about how the girl felt. The stylist walked over to her and smiled, "Sorry about that, Luna drives us all fucking nuts with how she talks to people, come and sit down. I'm gonna tell you everything Crow and I plan to do before we do it ok" ,Ryan told the young woman as she walked over to the chair and lowered it so Seph could easily sit down.

"What's wrong with her hair, what is this years Hunger Games theme butch women, I mean did you see some of the women coming into the games this year. Like those Draven brats from 7 I hear President MacNimare has a few surprises for those little rebels" ,Luna stated with a hint of pride in her voice. Oh how she loved their president, her mind drifted briefly to the man before she returned her attention to Whitley. "Now see minus this horrific dress this is what a woman should look like" ,Luna mused.

"LUNA SHUT THE FUCK UP!" ,Both Ryan and Crow said at the same time for the third time that day.

Ryan cringed at hearing about the twins from 7 and a low growl escaped her lips at how Luna can be so cruel knowing that those girls were in for trouble and targets for MacNimare. "Fucking sick twisted fucks" ,Ryan muttered to herself angrily. She then shot a glare to Luna, "There's nothing wrong with her hair, I think it looks good, a little bit of a trim and some styling and she'll look great" ,Ryan stated in defense for Seph. "Don't pay attention to what Luna has to say she's a.....well she's a stuck up twat and that's me being nice" ,Ryan said quietly to Seph as she looked at the young woman's hair. Her lips pursed a little and her eyes squinted as she ran her hands through it gently pulling at a few strands every now and then to get a feel for it.

Seph regretted slipping from the bathroom as soon as she exited. It was bloody chaos. The first man had gone, but two other people took his place and the air buzzed with tension. It all seemed to be related to the woman with the pink and yellow hair. It looked utterly ridiculous she thought, but of course, she said nothing. However, when Seph thought to the annoyingly loud Capitol members, this woman fit the bill exactly. The appearance and voice alike.

Content -perhaps that was not the right word...- to stand near the bathroom until she was placed elsewhere, she listened to the argument. It wasn't like she could just walk away from it. But some of the comments, particularly the one about the cotton candy machine brought a rare smirk to her lips. It was really nothing more than a twitch at the left corner of her mouth, but still.

The arguing continued a moment more before Ryan came. Seph nodded one, finding it comforting that she would have some say in what was going to be done. Though she really would have preferred not to have to go through the styling at all. Despite her primal wishes, she walked to the chair and took a seat instead of running out of the room... and this damned Capitol in general. From the corner of her eye, she looked at the cotton-candy-headed woman and then away at the comment she made about her hair. She did not really care, but it was still annoying. Finally, after a moment of careful thought, Seph said quietly to no one in particular, "Not all of us need to change our appearance for attention. Only the ones who are self conscious."

Luna glared, and opened her mouth to say something catty and vicious before she closed her mouth. With no comeback, she turned angrily to the other girl and went about messing with her appearance, effectively disassociating with Ryan, Crow, and Seph. Once that was out of the way, Seph glanced up at Ryan through their reflection in the mirror before looking off again. The harsh lighting brought out the gold flakes in her iris. Her arms rested on the armrests of the chair she sat on and she took a deep breath, muttering a small thanks to her about her hair. It wasn't noticeable if someone was not observant, but when Ryan's fingers slipped into her hair, her fingers curled around the ends of the armrests and her nails hooked firmly into the soft leather, leaving small crescent-shaped mark. Her eyes fell closed and she blew out a slow breath through her nose.

Seph's dislike for touch did not stem from a traumatic experience, it was just simply she did not like people, or their touch, and she liked her space. It was quite animalistic, like when a cat bends its body out of place to avoid a pet they didn't desire. Or when a wild animal squirmed in the hands of a person. Seph took more to the woods than just a conscious preference, it became a part of her and replaced much need for people at all. However, once in the hands of the Hunger Games all preferences were void. There was not individualism anymore, they were all property of the Capitol and the President... even before the Reaping.

Her hand was encased in the man's hand for only a moment before all hell broke loose, literally. Whitley Slumped into a chair, trying to hide. The dress was hideous. It looked like something drug out of a horror film. Some of the insults made her laugh, but she covered it well. She had to admit that Luna's hair was a little out there and the way she treated everyone... besides her... was horrible.

Biting her lip she watched the other Tribute come out to the mess. Even Whit felt bad and she wasn't even the cause.

Luna seemed to ignore the duo as she rummaged through a closet, screaming loudly and yanking a beautiful gown out for all to see. "This would be perfect." She pursed her lips and stared at the girl.

Whitley smiled, it faltered when the woman looked at her and said. "Well let me see what I'm working with... strip."

Her blue eyes went wide, she stared at Crow first and then the other women. "Here, in front of everyone?" She asked, swallowing hard. The woman nodded. Whitley bit her lip and stood. She didn't understand what any of this had to do with being styled. Her hips moved first as she danced a little jig her fingers inching the fabric up slowly.

There was a giggle, "What are you doing?" It was Luna in her obnoxious voice.

"Stripping... you told me to..." As it dawned on Whitley what the stylist assistant had meant, her face turned bright red.

"God you are so cute!" The female stated, before ushering her on and then diving in to help.

She was standing in her panties in a matter of moments, her hands clutched her bare breasts. Thank god the other stylist had put her in panties, if she could call them that. Luna circled her, Whit kept her eyes on the ground, fear she'd look up and catch the man looking at her. She didn't think she could handle that.

"Don't hide, you are beautiful... In this with your hair up and a bit of makeup on I'll make you stunning." She smirked at the girl. "Right Ryan? Crow?"

Whitley looked up now, her eyes flitting across the room to find out the answer, how her curiosity killed her.

Ryan could feel Seph tense up as she touched her. The stylist leaned down so that she could look directly into the girls eyes, "Relax kiddo, I know this is a lot to take in and I'm so sorry all this is happening to you but I want you to know you can trust me" ,Ryan whispered so that only Seph could hear her. There was honesty in her voice and she hoped the young woman could see she was being genuine and not just trying to talk her up because she liked the sound of her voice. When Luna held up the dress to show and asked Ryan and Crow for their opinions Ryan turned her attention briefly and gave a quick nod before returning her attention back to the young woman before her. "Alright I'm gonna give you a trim then style your hair up, I promise I won't do anything that's gonna make you look like Luna over there" ,Ryan tried to joke in hopes to get the girl to open up a bit more.

Before Ryan began she stood up and made her way behind the chair Seph was sitting in and turned it so it was facing the mirror. "So do you have a voice to match that pretty face?" ,the stylist asked as she stepped on a lever to raise the chair a bit. Her words were still quiet so that only Seph could hear her. "Tell me a bit about yourself, don't pay attention to anyone else in the room hon it's just me and you right now. You tell me about yourself and I'll tell you a little bit about me, sound good?" ,Ryan continued before flashing a smile that showed in the reflection of the mirror. As she began to trim Seph's hair she kept reassuring her to relax, she knew Seph was uncomfortable and she hated making people uncomfortable.

Crow looked to the dress and smiled, "That would look fabulous on her, Luna actually picked something good for once" ,he stated before making his way over to Whitley. "Don't worry I'm not some creeper who's gonna stare at your body even if you have a cute little figure" ,Crow began as he snatched the dress from Luna's hands and held it against Whitley to get an idea of how it would look. He could tell the girl was nervous and probably embarrassed as all hell and he could kick Luna for making her strip down in a room full of people. "Alright darling put it on and I'll find some shoes to go with it ok, then we can do your hair and make up" ,Crow told her before giving her a smile.

Seph made good work of not looking over at the chaos to their side. That screech cotton-candy-haired woman was making a migraine form just behind her eyes, and that really only made her more edgy. But Ryan was nice enough. Seph finally shifted her eyes and glanced at those of the Stylist's for the briefest of moments before she looked back in a different direction, but her peripheral caught the movement of the woman as she moved behind the chair and it to the mirror. A brief smile -brief as in... if you blinked you missed it- crossed her face at the mention of Luna's hair and she glanced over at her. A mistake because she caught a good eyeful of the stripping girl. Her brow perked up on her forehead and then she shook her head just a bit before glancing away. These people.... were crazy.

The deal that Ryan was trying to make was one that did not fully catch her interest. It was expected to talk. To make conversation. A kind of expectation that made little sense to her, as it was in her reasoning that words only ever needed to be used if it was important. But, she finally did reply, "I have a voice. I just don't... use it very much." It was a voice that was low, but feminine enough, with just a hint of a rasp. It was possible that that was because she really did not use her voice that often. Seph was not relaxed, but she was not unreasonably tense, though her fingers did stay cinched tightly around the arms of the chair.

When Seph finally spoke Ryan smiled even if it was a simple sentence it was nice that she at least got that. Her hands continued to work as Ryan focused on evening out Seph's hair a bit. "I know how you feel, when I was younger before I met Crow I didn't use my voice much either, I only spoke to one man and he's the guy that taught me everything I know now. When I became a stylist for not only the tributes but the capitol residents as well I was kinda forced to talk, the people in this place can be very....very pushy and annoying, then again most people are" ,Ryan began. "But not all of us are bad, you just have to know how to read people to know which ones are trouble and which ones aren't that's another thing Cinna taught me".

Ryan still spoke softly so that she didn't draw the attention of anyone else in the room towards them, she meant it when she told Seph it was only them talking. "So seeing as you have a voice, a very nice one at that, why don't you tell me a bit about yourself, do you have any family or friends, anything special occur in your life that's memorable and I don't mean being selected as tribute that's not something special in my opinion, I think it's fucking horrible" ,Ryan admitted as she continued to work she looked over to Luna briefly making sure the woman didn't hear her.

Seph listened as Ryan chatted away and soon she fell into the soft sound of her voice. It was far nicer than most of the Capitol resident's yapping traps. As she worked on her hair, Seph's fingers eventually relaxed around the arm rest and her shoulders loosened up. It wasn't that bad, really. But still. It was interesting to listen to her story. She remembered hearing about Cinna somewhere. He was a Stylist for the 74th Games, before that whole uproar. Ryan must have picked up on some of his...tendencies. Her suspicions were confirmed when her voice lowered and she spoke ill of the Games. Seph didn't care, she did not want to be here... it was pointless to have people kill each other. For what? Glory? Whatever... Animals never did such a thing. In Seph's world death was not something to aim for, but rather it was a necessity. Yes, only the strong survived, but they killed to eat, to stay alive.

Seph thought for a moment and mulled over the woman's question before answering it quietly. "I have a mother. And a father... And a fox." She fell silent for a moment before continuing. "His name is Coal."

"A fox huh? That's pretty awesome. Is anyone taking care of him while you're away?" ,Ryan asked as she finished up Seph's hair. When she was finished trimming it she grabbed a bottle of gel and squeezed a very small amount into her hand then rubbed them together before styling the young woman's hair. She made her way to back in front of Seph to work on the front of her hair. Ryan never told a tribute flat out she thought they were going to die and when any of them mentioned younger siblings or pets she always tried to give hope that the tributes would return to them when the games were over.

"I have a dog...." ,Ryan finally said after she finished up Seph's hair then washed her hands in the sink next to her station. "His name is Bane he's a big old Rottweiler, friendly as all hell but looks like a beast, that dog has been one of my best friends for nearly five years now actually besides Crow that dog is my best friend" ,Ryan admitted with a small laugh and a slight redness in her cheeks. "So what do you think about your hair, be honest if you hate it let me know".

Seph paused and her gaze drifted to the floor were tiny tuffs of dark hair lay. She studied them intently for a moment, working her incisors along the inside of her lip. No one would take care of Coal while she was gone... Her father hated the thing, worried that he would eat the chickens. He would be on his own, fending for himself. Much like she was now. Her own fate caused her little concern, it was Coal she worried for. She found him when he was a kit, fed him, and took care of him. He was reliant on her now. "Away..." she said quietly, mulling over the word and its...unlikeliness. "No. Father is afraid he'll eat the hens... He's not allowed near the house."

She listened on as Ryan chatted about her dog and her features softened slightly. Animals made her comfortable, and she enjoyed hearing about the woman's dog. "Bane. I like that name. Dogs are... cool. There were dogs on the farm," she paused and then blew out a soft breath from her nose. "Best friends are nice too," she said, though it was more to herself than to the woman.

Bright eyes slipped to look at herself in the mirror. Her hair looked... stylish. She lifted her hand and tugged at a strand before turning her head and looking up at Ryan with the smallest of smiles. "I don't hate it..."

Whit was thankful Ryan nodded and turned her attention back to the male. She felt her heart beat speed up as he approached. She blushed at his compliment, "But how would I know that?" She whispered as he thankfully pushed the fabric against her skin. she moved her hands from her breasts and held the fabric to her and watched him.

Luna gave him a death glare, but saw the girls admiration. Country bumpkin, she thought, what she wouldn't have given to sink her claws in one of those District two boys. Muscles and tall broad, the way a man should be. A look of disdain was sent Crow's way, ugh. "I got her shoes already.. but you can help me with the rest..." hopefully he noted she said HELP and NOT take over.

Whitley gave him a soft smile, unaware of Luna's scrutinizing gaze. "Ok.. Um thanks!" She turned to the bathroom. Luna held out a tall pair of silver strapped heels they matched the embellishment at the waist.

Luna shoved the shoes toward the male and yanked the dress from the girls grip. She held it open watching as the girl stepped into the dress at her urging. "Honestly, what would you people do without me..."

Whitley covered her breasts as the fabric was pulled away. She bit her lip, what was this woman's deal of trying to make her naked? Stepping into the dress she loved the fabric felt as it slid up her skin. It was so soft and cool. Her blue eyes sparkled as she looked up at the male, "Which seat?"

Luna huffed and shoved her toward hers by her hand, "Like he knows anything other than how to look like a fool and abuse eyeliner..."

Whitley shrugged and followed the woman. "Maybe you could be more friendly with your words and then they wouldn't tell you to shut the fuck up so often."

"And maybe you should mind your own business or I'll stuff your cellulite ass back in that ugly as fuck gown!" Luna said sneering as she shoved the girl into the chair.

Whitley turned to the male as she grasped his hand, "Can't you just work on me now." In other words, piss her off so she leaves again.

When Seph told Ryan about Coal the woman's heart sank and she bit down on her bottom lip before letting out a sigh. "How big is Coal? Just curious, is he full grown or still just a baby?" ,Ryan asked as quietly as possible. She felt bad for the girl and for the fox she had to leave behind. Ryan knew what it was like to have a companion and she didn't know what she would do if she was ever taken away from Bane knowing no one else would take care of him. The stylist had an idea but she knew she would have to be extremely careful and have a good plan before following through with it, she would need to speak to Crow later on when they were alone, he knew how to pull strings and had some connections that could help out plus he knew how to get Luna to pull strings as well she was always too stupid to realize she was helping them break rules.

"I'm glad you don't hate it" ,Ryan stated in response to Seph's comment about her hair. "Now do you want me to put some make up on you or do you just want to make your way down to the dinner? If you stick around for a bit I can walk with you I just need to change into what I'm wearing tonight" ,Ryan told her. "And best friends are nice, I only have thr....I mean two but I wouldn't mind adding another to the VIP list if you wouldn't mind, I like you kiddo" ,Ryan told her. She had almost said three referring to Cinna but he was in hiding and Luna knew damn well Ryan up until now only considered Crow and Bane best friends so Ryan didn't want Luna asking a bunch of questions.

Crow gave Luna a look of complete and total satisfaction after Whitley asked HIM to work on her. "Looks like someone's already tired of your shit Luna" ,he mused before placing a gentle hand on Whitley's back. "My chair is over here honey" ,he stated as he led her away from Luna.

"Unbelievable.....ugh sometimes I wonder how people from the districts function properly" ,Luna stated with a huff.

"Oh and don't worry about Luna stuffing you back into that dress, if she touches you I'll let Ryan's dog into her penthouse....again" ,Crow stated as he turned and gave Luna an evil little smirk.

"You wouldn't do such a thing! That....that mut ate half of my shoes and went to the bathroom on my floor it was completely disgusting and he shred my furniture to pieces.....oh my I had to get rid of it all" ,Luna cried. It had been truly traumatizing for the materialistic woman and Crow and Ryan had enjoyed every second of it.

"You know I felt terrible after I did that though...." ,Crow began as he started to set all of his supplies out to do Whitley's hair.

"You should have felt bad what you did to me wa...." ,Luna began thinking that Crow felt bad for letting the mammoth dog into her house.

"Yeah Bane got so sick after eating all that crap, next time I let him in I'll make sure he only pisses on everything and takes a nice dump on Luna's carpet" ,Crow stated deviously. He then returned his attention to Whitley as Luna huffed and began filing her nails again while muttering something under her breath, "Alright honey let's get you glammed up" ,he said excitedly as he lowered the chair for her to sit down. "You're hair is beautiful I think I know exactly what I wanna do with it".

It was a strange thing to ask, Seph thought. What did it matter to her how big Coal was. Seph answered anyway, though. She lifted her hands and held them apart a small distance. Coal was no bigger than a small cat really. "He's not a baby. He's a runt though... I found him by himself. Before his eyes opened. So he's small. Quite small."

Seph took one more glance at herself in the mirror. She squinted a bit and studied her hair for a moment more before shifting in her seat and looking up at Ryan once more. "I will stay here, with you," she said. She had no desire to go an mingle with the other Tributes. Even those in her own District. They didn't like her, and the feeling was mutual. But Ryan was nice, and an attachment had already been formed without Seph's full knowledge. Now that she was familiar with someone, she would most likely be sticking to the Stylist's side until she could no longer. "But... No make up."

Seph's brows shot up at Ryan's words and she smiled slightly once more. Her eyes shifted to study the tiles again before she lifted her hand to rub the back of her neck gently. The talk about best friends made her heart hurt. Only a few years ago she watched her one and only friend... more than friend, die in the Games. It had been a hard blow for the already socially unstable Seph. She didn't tell Ryan though, there was no need to weigh down the air with sad words. "... I would like to be friends," she said softly, tugging absently at a string on her dress pants.
